Rubber Queen meeting for August!

Ronda has moved her studio to Ovid, MI...so off I went to meeting on Tuesday!  Wonderful business sharing, demonstrations, swapping and friendship.  These are such fun ladies that have been brought together through our love of paper crafting and our company Stampin' Up!
I only got one photo of some of the ladies and her new space, but I love all the natural light from the windows all across the front!
And these are the swaps from this months meeting, I have the group, the singles are the ones I didn't get. :(  Raised the number of swaps to 15, so I should get them all next month!  Oh and I have no idea which one was the card winner so if you know please contact me so I can fix that!

Hoilday Catalog Launch Party and Creative Day!


It's been a busy July for me, helping our daughter this month with their injured son Jase, yes one of the twins.  He had an accident here on our farm, that broke both legs, many lacerations and lots of "road rash" to face and legs.  He spent several days in the hospital and much needed care at home.  He is healing very quickly, thanks to all of your prayers.  For that I thank you! His tibia on left leg is healed and the cast came off on Monday.  Right leg femur has an external fixator on it that will be removed on Aug. 18th.  Praying by then everything else will be healed on his legs as well.  He is a tough little guy and has endured way more than he should have at 15 months.  Next week I will start getting the rest of my daycare kiddos back, a couple days each week. I have missed them greatly and they want to be back here too.

The new Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog will go live on September 1st.  But you can see it live here in my Studio during my Holiday Catalog launch Party.  I'm holding this with  "Creative Day" on Aug. 24th, 1-4 or 6-9 pm and Aug. 25th, 9-noon.  You can choose:
1)  8 card class, $15 or free with an order
2)  Shadowbox frame $20
3)  All Occasion Stamp-a-Stack, $30, $10 rebate with an order
4)  2nd Christmas Stamp-a-Stack $30,  $10 rebate with an order
RSVP by Aug. 19th to attend and let me know what class(es) you want to take.

Please feel free to invite whomever you would like to bring to class (you'll even earn a prize).  It's way more fun stampin' and creating with friends!

I'm ordering products from the Holiday catalog on Aug. 2!  It is another amazing catalog from Stampin' Up! full of holiday stamps and accessories! You can view them in August here in the studio and start ordering your very own in September.

Hope you are all having a wonderful summer and please...Come stamp with me soon!

Rubber Queens meeting, July 12!

Want a fun night out...think about joining me at my upline Ronda Wade's team meetings.  It is the first Tuesday of every month and only $5 to attend(first meeting is FREE for newbies).  We share ideas, stories, samples of projects and even get to make a few things.  If you ever want to ride along just let me know.
So this month there was alot of sharing of our ideas, especially on the show and tell table.  But I will start with the swaps we do monthly.  Everyone that wishes to participate makes 10 full sized cards using only current Stampin' Up! products.  We enter one into the card contest and swap out 9 with others.  There has been more ladies than that the last few months which is great, so I take pictures of the ones I didn't get to bring home.  Oh, you want to see them....here you go!

What CAN’T You Do With Project Life?

Ultimately, we would all love our pictures beautifully displayed in completed albums, right? Easier said than done, I know, I get it. That’s why Project Life exists — to simplify that whole process that intimidates the living daylights out of so many people. You know what else is scary? Managing all the digital photos, so take a look and start preserving your memories.
Project Life® by Stampin’ Up! offers so much more than memory keeping—from tags to cards, you can use it in all of your crafting. We have three new card collections and accessory packs that each offer different looks for everyday memory keeping or crafting—Hello Lovely, Good Vibes, and All Year Long.
