So Excited!!!

Hi All!  Okay, I haven't been this excited about a Holiday Mini Catalog in quite a while!  Have you taken a peek at it yet?  If you haven't, you can click on the photo of the Holiday Mini Catalog at the top left hand corner of my blog.  OMG, I love this mini catty, I mean what is there not to love in it?

Warmest of Wishes - by Stampin' Up!First of all, take a look at page 5, the hostess stamp set Warmest of Wishes (wood mount: 122670, $13 or clear mount: 122672, $10).  How stinkin' cute is that owl, with its mask and pumpkin face goodie bag?  I would love to put that on a little baggie topper with some cookies in the Cellophane Bags 3" x 5" (103104, $3.95, 50/pkg).  But, unfortunately our school is no longer allowing sweets at class parties!  (That simply stinks!)  I also love the wreath and the "warmest of wishes" stamps.  Heck I like them all!

Simply Scored  - by Stampin' Up!Then go to page 6 & 7.  Woo Hoo!  We now have a Simply Scored Scoring Tool (item 122334, $29.95).  It takes the chore out of scoring!  Per the mini catalog, the "tool's scoring base fits paper or card stock up to 12" x 12" and features score tracks every 1/8".  Features two easy-to-read rulers (with inch markings down to 1/8") along top and left side for perfect scoring-one standard left-to-right ruler and one zero center ruler.  Includes three place markers and one stylus.  Bottom of base has non marking and nonskid feet to secure it on your work ares.  Base measures approx. 12-1/8" x 13-1/4" s 1"."  Now, what this description does not mention is that is has a compartment to store the markers and/or a bone folder in a little hidden compartment.  You can also store the stylus there if you so wish.  Also, you can purchase extra Simply Scored Place Markers (125625, $2.95, 6/pkg) if you need to do so.  I'm so excited because I have been wanting to make an ice cream cone card for the longest time but have been waiting for this product to become available so I can use it to make the card.  Well, I have it now, so I will be making the card for my next Stamp-A-Stack Card Making Class.  (Want to join me for this class?  Click here to check out my calendar for the next available class date.  Click on the RSVP button to register.)  

Gently Falling Clear-Mount Stamp Set - by Stampin' Up!

Now you have to check out pages 16, 17 & 18.  How awesome is the Gently Falling (wood mount: 123802, $39.95, clear mount: 123804, $28.95) stamp set and

the Spice Cake Designer Series Paper (12403, $10.95) on pages 16 & 17? 
Spice Cake Designer Series Paper - by Stampin' Up!

As well as the Designer Fabric Spice Cake (124066, $9.95) and Spice Cake Designer Buttons (124113, $7.95, 16/pkg)?

Spice Cake Designer Buttons - by Stampin' Up!Spice Cake Designer Fabric - by Stampin' Up!

Once again, I'm so excited for Stamp-A-Stack on September 30, 2011 because we will be using the Gently Falling stamp set and all of the other items that I have mentioned!!!  If you are in the Chico area or any out lying areas you are more then welcome to come.  I have people as far away as Colusa, Paradise and Orland who attend my SAS classes!

Oh...Did I forget to mention that I received all the above at a 20% discount in addition to the 20% off I received as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator?  "How did you do that?", you ask.  Well, I'll tell you.  Because I am a Demonstrator for Stampin' Up! and I have 2 wonderful ladies that are my down-lines I was able to receive the Title Benefits Promotion when I purchased this bundle of items.  If you would like to find out how you can receive these benefits as well, click here to be taken to my Stampin' Up! website to find out how to become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.  It's easy and fun!  Join me now and we can have some fun together! 

Pines & Poinsettias - by Stampin' Up!Now it is time to turn to page 21!  Check out the Pines & Poinsettias stamp set (wood: 123762, $19.95, clear: 123764, $14.95).  This stamp set is going to look GORGEOUS on the Christmas cards we will be making at the October 21, 2011 Stamp-A-Stack (come on over, you know you want to...).  I'm thinking we will do some embossing using the Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder (109129, $4.95) or Silver Stampin' Emboss Powder (109131, $4.95).  My mind is going crazy just thinking of all the possibilities and designs I could do with this stamp set.    
(Psst...I also received this stamp set for free because I recruited a new person to my down-line in July.  See, you should really think about joining me and my team...)

There are so many other great items in the new Holiday Mini Catalog that I can't list them all.  So check it our for yourself and contact me to place your order or you can order 24/7 on my on-line store by clicking here.  Sorry for the long post but I couldn't help my self!!!

Happy Stamping!

Stamp-A-Stack March 25, 2011

Once again, Stamp-A-Stack was a hit!  I had 8 wonderful ladies show up for the class.  2 of them were new to SAS.  I met Donna B and Judy S one week after my last SAS and they were disappointed that they had just missed the class.  Another two were Cindy and her daughter, Amber C.  Amber is a sophomore in college and comes to my classes whenever she is home on a break.  It was so great to see her.  Amber starting attending my SAS classes with her mom when she was a Junior in high school!
