My favorite stamp set that I received to make display samples for the Kansas City Stampin’ Up! convention, was the Balloon Adventures stamp set. I think everyone will want to buy this stamp set when it becomes available January 4, 2017. What, you don’t want to wait that long? Sign up with me as a “discount buyer” and you can purchase it starting December 1. Email me at Beth@StampingMom.com and I’ll give you all the details. This set also has a coordinating set of framelits called Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits Dies.
Isn’t this adorable?! I used the Kraft Tag a Bag Gift Bags sold on page 176 of the annual catalog. The Designer Series Paper (DSP) is called Party Animal and is also available on Jan 4. The card stock I used is Pacific Point and Tangerine Tango. Do you see the cute little Pacific Point candles in the cake DSP coordinate perfectly with the row of candles I cut from a different piece of Party Animal DSP? When I opened up my display stamping box from Stampin’ Up! and found the Party Animal DSP, Balloon Adventures stamp set and Balloon Pop-Up Thinlets Dies, I felt like I hit the jack pot!
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving celebrating at our house with 22 family members on Thanksgiving Day and on Steve’s side on Friday. On Friday I had more time to talk to people and play Euchre! Hope your holiday was good as well.
I feel like the pressure of this fall is over since my construction is done, most things are put back, I’m not traveling as much and I’m feeling much better. It’s time to start blogging again and enjoy my new Stamping Studio and Sun Room. I actually took a nap in the sunshine in the Sun Room today and it was as wonderful as I had hoped it would be as we were planning it.
We’ve enjoyed having Sean and Ryan home for a week and Ryan returns to college and Sean back to Seattle, WA both tomorrow. The house will seem quiet again with just the two younger kids at home.
