Everything (well almost) is Retiring!

Everything (well almost) is Retiring!

One day left of August and that means 24 hours before the Annual Inspirations and Seasonal Expressions 2 will be retiring!  While there is excitement for the new product up and coming, it’s time to pull out the Annual Inspiration and Seasonal Expressions 2 for one more look through to make sure you have what you need or want!   Check out this blog post from CTMH that shows everything that is retiring, here.    

Don’t forget about that awesome clearance section as well.  I checked it out and there are still some amazing deals, especially with some stamp and die combos for those of you who love the dies that match your stamp sets.   I noticed that two “How To” books are still there – Reflections and Originals.  They both cover your basics and are a must have.

 

Amazing August Things To Remember!

Thanks for stopping by my corner of the internet and letting me take a little .  There is a lot retiring tomorrow.  Be sure to check out it out one last time before it’s gone!

I Craft So Hard

I Craft So Hard

 

“I craft so hard I sweat GLITTER” is one of my favorite sentiment saying in the August Stamp of the Month, S1808 For The Love of Crafting.  This card is fun to make with the left over pieces of glitter paper and shimmer tape you have around.    Gold Glitter Gems and some Prisma Glitter adds some more bling to the card.  =)

There is a free Kit of the Month for everyone who gets this stamp set for $5.00 with a $50.00 purchase.  The “matching” card using the same sentiment, from the kit is this:

This card uses one of the embossing folders to create a base of the card.  Documented paper for the other pieces along with some gold glitter paper!  Best of all – all of this is cut for you when you get the kit.  You’ll need the stamp set, the embossing folder, pen/markers, along with the stapler.  So nice to just get a kit to put together when you get it.  Envelopes are included.

Did I mention if you join our team, WWStampettes, in August, I’ll send you this kit as well for free because it’s so awesome!  Come and join our fun!!

Thanks for stopping by my corner of the internet and letting me take a little .  I craft because I love it!  This stamp set is close to My heart because it has so many fun sentiments that celebrate this love.  I hope you don’t miss out.

Highlights of Oregon – Part 1

Highlights of Oregon – Part 1

Here are some highlights of the trip to Oregon so far.  More to come.  Such an amazing trip to see everyone.  It’s amazing how much the kids have grown.

Getting so much time at the beach was wonderful.  The South Coast of Oregon is really beautiful.  If one can take the time to drive Hwy 101 from California through Washington, you should.  The Pacific Coast offers so much between things to do and vistas to enjoy.

While I couldn’t catch up with everyone I’d have love to have seen, we had a nice get together at Sunset Beach

My friend Tracy and I, took the kids down to the West Coast Game Park and Devil’s Kitchen Beach in Bandon.

Another highlight is enjoying a wonderful dungeness crab.  It was amazing and a wonderful treat from my mother-in-law, Maureen.

Anyway, getting ready to start our trek back over to MD.  It’s been a wonderful three weeks, too short in some ways, and long in others (we miss our fur babies).  First stop will be a few days with my sister in Portland, OR.  =)

Thanks for stopping by my corner of the internet and letting me take a little.  These are just a few highlights.  There’s a lot of scrapbooking in my future!!

Games To Play

Games to Play

More on this fun Travel Album!  This is the Travel Album workshop I will host.  I got the workshop and directions from Ginni Candeleria.   What a trip down memory lane for me as we played some of the games I did as a kid.  Do you remember the license plate game?!  Such fun to pass the time.  The map of the USA, is cut from the “You are Here” Cartridge.  Many of the images are cut from this cartridge. The nice thing about the album was the multiple games in the book, allowing you to move back and forth between games and not lose track of where you were at or scores!

Do you remember this game?  Slug Bug?  Now, I’m informed that it’s called “Punch Buggy”.  This could be a East Coast vs West Coast terminology.   With four spots to keep track of the score, it was a great deal of fun.  We did add in PT Cruisers and Mini Coopers to the count for more variety.  Who can turn down a game of Hangman?  The “Go” piece is in a 2″x 2″ flip flap.  You write your word under the flap. This ensure good “gamemanship” (if that’s a word).

Last one I’ll share with you is the “fill-in-the-blank” games.  Definitely worth a few laughs and then some!   SG would ask us for the words and then read us the stories.  They were so silly and fun.

If you want to make the album as shown, you’ll need to pick up the Adventure Fundamental Pack of Paper (low quantity left) and matching Compliments.  Both are retiring on August 31 so time is short.  Modifications will need to be made for the Picture My Life Cards as well as a few other things.  I’d highly recommend the Adventure Cardstock Pack as well so you have matching cardstock to help with modifications.

Amazing August Things To Remember!

Thanks for stopping by my corner of the internet and letting me take a little .  I hope you got to smile as you read about these games and had a trip down memory lane.  Computers, sumpters – games are still more fun in person!

Do What You Love

Do What You Love

“Do what you love” is so very important, don’t you agree.  For the past 18 years, I’ve been a part of Close To My Heart (CTMH) because I love crafting and I want some of the best products for this.   We were relocating to Guam and I was honestly, in a panic about where I’d get my crafting supplies from!  I wanted to be sure I was able to get paper, stamps, and scrapbooks.   Getting them at a discount was just an added bonus for me.

From a simple decision to join CTMH (formally DOTS when I joined), I gained so much more than a discount.  I gained a community of amazingly talented artists to inspire me.  Friends, both as customers and consultants, who have walked 18 years of life with me.    We’ve laughed, cried, and created memories to last a lifetime.  You just can’t go wrong with this.   Look at this amazing kit you receive plus you’ll get a $50.00 CTMH Cash shopping spree to pick the supplies you want in your kit and a free Magical Paper Pack.  It’s really a “Consultant Kit Your Way”!   Did I mention that you get to pick your new supplies from the upcoming Holiday Expressions because consultants get a “preview” period where we can order ahead of everyone else!   The value is over $200.00 for an investment of $75.00 (over 60% discount).

 

Join our team, WWStampettes, this month and get the “Kit of the Month” for free!  You’ll only need to have the Stamp of the Month to create this cards.  The cards are cut and ready for you to stamp.  Embellishments are included!  =)  

 

Here’s a sample of one of the cards, a different take on the same sentiment:
