This year for my New Catalog Open House I had 2 Make & Take cards for everyone to make.
The first card used a new fun color called Lemon Lime Twist (new In Color) along with 2 new Designer Series Papers (Wood Textures & Delightfully Daisy) and a beautiful Gold Faceted Gem. The second card used the new Eastern Beauty Bundle which includes the Eastern Beauty stamp set and the Eastern Medallions Thinlits Dies. It also used two carryover items from the catalog called the Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate and the Gold 1/4" Natural Trim.
Just a reminder that my New Catalog Open House will be Thursday, May 25, 2017 from 6 to 9 pm at My Stamping Place at 1318 Hammond Ave, Waterloo, IA.
The new catalogs have arrived and will be available for pickup there. I originally said there would be a free Make & Take but I now have 2 free Make & Takes for you. I will also have a treat and water available. I had mentioned to my Club members that I was hoping to have all the cards down from my board and all new cards to replace them. I am only 6 cards away and should be able to complete this by Thursday. I am sharing one of the cards here that shows 4 of the new products at once: Designer Series Paper, punch, ribbon, and embellishment. One of my favorite cards. Come join all the fun.
I will be having a new catalog Open House on Wednesday, June 15, 2016. Come make this card free of charge, have a treat and pick up a catalog if you don't have one yet. It will also be Open Stamping and you can make up any cards you have missed at past Stamp a Stacks.
I will have a little treat container you can put together & take with you. Will have Paper Pumpkin kits to show you that are currently 50% off for new subscribers. Paper Pumpkin are fun cards or projects. Get a few friends to sign up at the same time and then get together to make them. All kits are designed to only take 30 minutes or less to complete. Something for all you busy women or men. Also giving free shipping & tax on any regular orders for those attending or any of my customers who can't make it if you email me by 8pm on August 12th. Hope to see you there.
Check out this swap I received from Alisha Hamel at Convention this year. I had bought the Dress Up Framelit early in the year & had never used it as I had hurt myself. I saw this card & decided it would be my Open House card my friends would get to make. I changed mine slightly and you can see it below this card.
Stampin Up Product Used: Dress Up Framelit, Basic Rhinestones, Silver Glimmer Paper,Crisp Cantalope Ruffle Stretch Trim.
Had Open Stamping Thursday night but decided to make it an Open House for everyone to stop by and see what I brought back from Convention.
Mom made a chocolate cake with cherries in it that always goes over well. I will talk more another day about how I made the cake topper. Talking about My Paper Pumpkin! I was so excited when I saw it & how simple it was that I decided to change my Open Stamping night to add the Open House also.
Everyone was working on different projects specially the card I had for them to make. It went over well with everyone, even the younger girls. It was a swap I received at Stampin Up Convention 2013 that I changed every so slightly. I will show this another day. Here are a couple pictures of everyone working away. It was a wonderful & busy night. Thanks to all who were able to come specially Judy from Maryland who was visiting her sister in law. Judy won my Open House Door Prize which was the Designer Type Photopolymer Stamp Set. Congratulations Judy.
My plans are to be stamping the weekend away. Yeah for me. Michele Schmidt, Waterloo, IA
