8/18 Quarterly Demonstrator Training and 16 Card Catalog Kickoff

Good Morning Friends! 

I'm very excited to be planning my next quarterly team training event.  It's mainly to get cute samples like this one into the hands of my team of demonstrators, but it's an AWESOMELY fun event for any demonstrator and ALL my customers!  Everyone is invited!

Click here for more info and to register.

Projects: It is SUCH a priority for me to make everyone feel SPOILED, that most of the work is done for you.  As much as possible, I precut, emboss, and do whatever needs to be done to make it easy for you to "whip out" SIXTEEEN full cards with envelopes in 3 hours and we have a blast!  There will be all sorts of projects from Love, to christmas and halloween and fall.   These cards will cover a large range of things happening over the next four months.

Door Prizes: The doorprizes are nothing short of amazing, and I already have a stash of fun things waiting.. like TWO magnetic pads (retail value $45) and other fun supplies that I will put as door prizes with my new wristband system.  It's a little taste of Stampin' Up convention where I got the idea for the wristbands.  I pass out wristbands with you goodie bags and all the prizes are predetermined.  Pick your favorite DSP and you could win one of the prize patrols!

Food: Chef Leigh-Ann, (chef of the stamper people) will be providing all the snacks for this quarters Holiday Catalog event and she is just an amazing chef! 

Goodie Bag: Your goodie bag will have two full packages of embellishments for you to use on your projects as you assemble them.  This month you will receive a full package of Self-Adhesive Rhinestones and roll of the super sparkly silver ribbon (shown in this cute project), and of course a new catalog.  Who know's what other little gifty you may find inside?  ** hint

Music: While I usually play some sort of fun music, I'm thinking we will need some Christmas tunes (at least to start) cranking for this fun one!

New Location and what to bring:  The new smoke-free, Lowell Elks venue (see the signup to get the exact location with directions) will be ready and waiting for us.  You'll want to bring adhesive (with refills to be safe) and a covered beverage.. nothing that can fall over and wipe out your cards please! :)

Baggie Book DEMONSTRATOR Option:  Any demonstrator attending the event will have the option to make baggie books using your cards.  These books fit in larger sized purses and can be carried with you to events to show your customers what THEY can do. 

Ready to come party with me and my team?  Everyone is welcome!  Deadline to sign up so I can have all your supplies ordered and cut is August 28th.  Please Join us on Sunday September 7th from 1-4PM.  Here's the link!  Ready, set GO!  I hope you can make it!

8/17 Embellished Events, Congratulations Wedding Card with measurements, How to Curl your Bakers Twine

Good Afternoon Superstampers! 

Just a sweet card share for you on this lovely Sunday Afternoon! 

First ~ did you leave a comment on my blog candy post?  You could get a pre cut class, directions and videos delivered right to your door!  Check out that post here and leave me a comment to enter. There's only a few day's left to snag your kit.  If you are interested in stamping with me remotely, click here to check it out! 

We made this card at a past stamp club meeting.  I love all the dimension that the embossing provides.  How about some measurements to start:

For the BASE layer I used a ready cut card base from the current catalog.  I love how cool and easy it is.  These bad boys are already scored and cut and waiting for you to layer on.  However, if you prefer to cut what you have...

Measurements and clickable shoppping list: (click on any of the items below to see it in my store)
Base layer: Hello Honey 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Layer 2: Blackberry Bliss 5 x 3 3/4"
Layer 3: Whisper White 4 3/4" x 3 1/2", embossed with the Large Dots Embossing Folder
Layer 4: is a 1/2" x 3 3/4" strip of Blackberry Bliss
Layer 5: Fun Frames Embossed Whisper White layer (cut to 2 1/2 x 3 1/2", embossed then fussy cut with a pair of scissors)
Layer 6: Crushed Curry Button from Regals 130029 (looks like hello honey doesn't it?) 
Layer 7: Whisper white Bakers Twine, Pretied Bow and curled for my customers

Step by Steps:
  1. Emboss Layer 3 ~ 3/4's of the way up so that the top stays not embossed using the Large Polka Dot Embossing folder.  (i just leave the end hanging off my folder so it stays straight.  
  2. Attach this layer to the Blackberry Bliss layer below it, then add the 1/2 strip across the top using your favorite adhesive and set aside.
  3. emboss Layer 5: with the Fun Frames Embossing folder.
  4. Using the Hello Honey Ink Pad, stamp the Bells from Embellished events in the middle of the embossed frame.
  5. Using the Blackberry Bliss Ink Pad, Stamp the Congratulations on top. 
  6. Fussy cut this frame with your paper snips (scissors).
  7. Attach this frame layer on top of the Blackberry Strip as shown on the sample.  
  8. Use a Glue Dot to attach the Crushed Curry button.
  9. Drop a tiny drop of liquid glue in the middle of the button and put the pre-tied bow on top.  just tap the knot of the bow on top of the liquid glue and let it set up for a minute.
How I tied the bow... My friend Lee Conrey has an awesome bowmaker for sale here.  If you stamp with me on a regular basis, I have them for local pickup for a few dollars less (due to shipping).  So, I tied my bows on that, but you can really tie this one with your fingers.  Then to curl the bakers twine, it's the same as any curling ribbon.  After your bow is tied, hold on to the knot and pull with the back of your SU paper snips.  It's that easy!  Pinky swear! 

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Please enjoy the rest of your weekend!
