Wow! What a great time for Stampin' Up! So many great idea projects going on, new catalog debuting and Convention 2013 coming up! Where oh where to begin?!
FIRST, let me say I am SOOOOO excited that I am getting the opportunity to attend Stampin' Up's National Convention in July - woohoo! My first ever convention to attend - and during Stampin' Up's 25th Anniversary to add to it! I cannot say enough how excited I am about this trip - it's going to be full of excitement and opportunity! So, stay tuned as I will blog along the way so you can experience it along with me!!
NEXT, Stampin' Up's NEW Annual Catalog will be making it's debut May 31st! I just got my catalogs and can't stop looking at it! There's sooooo much crafty goodness going on there! I also just received my order of new SU product. Here's a clean and simple card I whipped up real quick using all new product - the NEW In-Colors, and a new hostess stamp set were used here.
I am also working on a super-cute, super easy-peasy mini-album using the Tea for Two designer series paper. I will be holding a workshop in June on how to make this easy little album! These are pics of only the beginning of the project - it's still a work in progress (when you have 2 small kids, it takes awhile to complete even a simple project - lol!). When the project is complete I will post more pics:)
I am also trying to jump start my Stampin' Up! business. I have always been a hobbyist. However with deciding to attend Convention, I decided I need to step things up a notch and start offering classes. My friends and family have been encouraging me for awhile to hold classes. So, with summer approaching, giving me more free time, I decided to go ahead and go with it! All my classes are listed on the calendar on my Stampin' Up website: www.shellyreissig.stampinup.net I will try to post a copy of the flyer I made in a later post. I made the flyer using SU's My Digital Studio. So, I am still trying to figure out how to post those projects to my blog!! If one of my workshops looks interesting to you, but you live too far away to attend or you cannot make it on that date, you can still sign up and I will send you the supplies needed and step-by-step instructions to complete the project. All my workshops require a minimum $30 SU order.
Another SU project I'm excited about is the This and That album they recently came out with. Very similar to the Smash books, but soooo much cuter and in Stampin' Up style! I'll be rockin' mine out with my SU experience and will post project pics soon as I get started!
Lastly, Stampin' Up's Paper Pumpkin monthly kit! I will be getting my first kit shortly and will be creating as soon as it lands on my doorstep! Sign up for this monthly kit through my website. THEN join in on the Paper Pumpkin Challenge! Some lovely Stampin' Up demonstrators have created a blog specifically for Paper Pumpkin challenges! I SO love this idea! Their blog link is on my sidebar to the right. Click on it and take a look at their super-cutesy blog! ANYBODY can participate!
So, there you have it! I told you - LOTS of Stampin' Up goodness going on! My 31st is the big day for the new catalog, so be sure to check out my Stampin' Up site that day and start your shopping - woohoo! Happy Stampin'!
P.S. I think I need to update my blog photo seeing as Andrew is now 14 months old - lol! Hopefully I can get hubby to take an updated pic of myself with my munchkins this weekend - stay tuned:)
