I’m the host this week of the Use Your Stuff Color Challenge. Please play along here.
For my card, I used the Stampin’ Up! current colors of Cucumber Crush, Marina Mist, Very Vanilla and retired Stampin’ Up! colors Gable Green and Bashful Blue.
Have you started making Christmas cards yet?
Here’s the Stampin’ Up! Sale through September 14. Please order online here or email me and let me know if you would like to order.
I have a group Pinterest board for demos or anyone who makes Stampin’ Up cards or gifts. Please follow the group board here and send me an email Beth@StampingMom.com and let me know you want to post your projects on the group board. Once you’ve been invited, you can invite your friends or team mates to also post Stampin’ Up projects on the board. Your Pinterest traffic will greatly increase if you post to group boards. Also, please click on the “heart” icon and like the cards you like on the board. This will also increase Pinterest exposure. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Hope you had a good weekend. We did. Our Hawkeyes won, the Cubs are still winning, Ryan came home from college, and I had lots of time to stamp. I can’t show you everything I stamped, however. Have I told you “the box” arrived! Yep, I received a free box of goodies from Stampin’ Up! that will be in the Occasions catalog in January 2017. It’s top secret though. I can’t even show my team members. Abby knew I was waiting for “the box.” When it arrived she ran and found me and helped me open it. I think she was excited as I was! I actually had to sign a legal document that I wouldn’t share anything that was in the box, so please don’t even ask… In November after our convention in Kansas City, I will show you all the pictures of everything I made. I need to make ten different projects so if I say I’m stamping but you don’t see any evidence, you’ll just know I’m working with the cool toys in “the box.” Needless to say the Occasions 2017 catalog is going to be awesome!
I also had time to paint the foundation on two sides of my house today. Our home went from gray to taupe in 2009, but suddenly this weekend I decided it was time to paint the foundation. Actually, we ripped out our 30 year old bushes this summer so I can now see the foundation that doesn’t match. I have one more side to complete. When I was painting I also noticed the door from the garage to the backyard is also gray. Not sure why I hadn’t noticed that before now. It’s on the list!
