September Stamp-A-Stack

Just a quick post to show you a few of the cards for the next SAS in the making.  Our next SAS will be Saturday, September 17 from 9a.m. - noon.    There will be a couple of subtle changes to the cards, but here you go:

First up, a simple card - very pleaseing to the eye card - Lovely As A Tree

Next - Baroque Motiff''s meets Delightful Dozen.  This is a very elegant card and perfect for those on your Chirstmas Card list:

The third selection has a Victorian feel....very vintage with the Skaters and crochet lace trim:

And the final choice - Stitched Stockings from the new Winter Mini.  We started with this sample, slightly changed the border trim & embossed the stocking in the new Cherry Cobbler Embossing Powder - there is a lot of bling on this card.

More information will be sent out to customers shortly including a sign up sheet.  If you are reading this post & would like more information, please feel free to contact me at

Downline Meeting

Yesterday was a busy day here.  The morning we were busy stamping at our 1st of 4 Holiday Stamp-A-Stacks.  Everyone seemed to LOVE the cards & it was a very successful morning.  Of course, we has a spread of new products from the upcoming mini & everyone is very excited for September 1st.

In the afternoon I had my downline meeting. We shared a ton of information & the girls basically told me I need to get an I-phone.  Oh boy!!  We had a bunch of laughs and our swap theme was something from the new Holiday Mini - here's what we came up with....

First up - Gail's card - which uses the new Spice Cake DSP and the Gently Falling Stamp Set.  This card is just beautiful & Gail shared the rock & roll technique with the group.  Thanks Gail!

Next up is Jen's tag.  Jen's swap was made using the Holly Berry Bouquet DSP, Pines & Poinsettias stamp set, Holly Berry Bouquet Buttons, & the Yummy new Cherry Cobbler Quilted Ribbon.  This is just so elegant in person!!  Thanks Jen!

Next up is Jamie's card - Jamie used the Stitched Stockings Stamp Set & the matching Stocking Builder Punch, along with some Silver Glimmer Paper for some BLING!  I LOVE the background for this card which was made using the sentiments from Four the Holiday's.  LOVE it!  Thanks Jamie!!

Last but not least, my swap - straight from convention!!  I used the Stitched Stockings Stamp Set, the Silver Glimmer Paper, Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine & a new Mini Jingle Bell.  Adorable!!

     I am the luckiest person in the world to have such a terrific downline - they have such great ideas & keep me so motivated.  We decided that for our meeting next month we will just have an open stamp session & our plan is to start the advent calendar with the 25 & counting set & try to come up with some multiple uses for the set, humm - now there's a challenge. 

     Do you have any ideas for another use?  Would you like to join my team?  Let me know!! 

     Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!  Stay tuned for samples for our 2nd of 4 Holiday SAS's - we're here to help you get your Holiday cards done early this year!  Hope you can join the fun!
