Holiday Mini仅剩几天了!

嗨,大家好!希望大家圣诞节过得愉快! 我的假期很忙,但真的很好!由于做了一些手术,我不得不躺下一段时间-但一切都很好,我已经完全康复了。感谢所有向我发送电子邮件和电话的人-非常感谢!手术一周后,我们驱车前往蒙克顿去接我的婆婆,婆婆从英格兰飞来和我们一起过圣诞节。 这是她第一次在加拿大过冬,我很高兴我们甚至有一个白色的圣诞节! (我不得不拉很多琴键告诉我!)。 因此,我们度过了一个愉快的假期。 我的MIL将于下周离开-很难相信两个星期会过去和消失-这些日子肯定很快过去了。 现在是时候让我恢复工作了!!! 我非常激动,因为Stampin'Up正在进行很多工作!马上!


首先,您是否看到过 Clearance Rack Blitz? Holey Carumba! It's amazing! Our 'old style' punches are on the clearance rack at a massive discount - I got the punches that have been on wish list (the snowflake punch, the butterfly punch, etc). I also stocked up ribbon and card stock. I checked the clearance rack again this morning and Stampin' Up! has added even MORE items! Everything is available while supplies last and you can only purchase the clearance rack items through my online store - click here 查看商品并开始购物 (if Santa brought you money, this is a great way to get a big bang for your buck!!).  Everyone who places an online order with me from now until Dec. 31st will have their names entered in my draw to win approx. $75 in NEW Stampin' Up! product!


我们的假期迷你即将结束! If there are still items on your wish list from (in my opinion) the BEST holiday mini ever, you'll have to get them before January 3rd! And please note, our Stocking Builder Punch is NOT going to be carried over into our new Idea Book&Catalogue this July!! See my previous post for all the ways you can use the fun and versatile punch.  I have an order going in this week, so if there's anything you want, let me know and I'll include your items in with my order (thus saving you some shipping costs). Here are some samples of some of my favourite stamp sets in the current Holiday Mini that will soon be GONE:

"Hand Penned Holidays" - I absolutely love this stamp set. This card is listed on Splitcoaststampers. com and was made by 'Garkin'. The embossing folder 'Snowburst' is also in the Holiday Mini. The snowflake punch is one of the punches listed on the Clearance Rack Blitz!

"You Are Loved". This beautiful card was made by 'Sleepy in Seattle', also posted on SCS. This is a super pretty set (with coordinating wheel stamp) that can be used year round.
 我追求我的母亲,我们俩都喜欢与叶子有关的一切,所以这套是“必不可少的”,我已经用了很多。 这是一个奇妙的两步压印套装! 如果您没有此设置,那么您真的会想要它。  Seriously. 它是所有季节的完美选择,也可以制作出出色的“男士”卡片! 我也用这套蜡烛,结果发现它们很漂亮! 这是我认为我不会分手的那些邮票之一。该卡片样本是由示威者Vicki Burdick制作的,并张贴在Stampin'Connection(SU示威者的一种“ facebook”类型)上。
There are a lot of items in the mini I really love! I could go on and on but I'll let you look through the mini yourself to pick your favourites.   Click here 在线查看Holiday Mini。

一旦Holiday Mini结束,我们的 Occasions Mini 开始,您将要 LOVE it! If you're on my mailing list, you should have received your free Occasions Mini in the mail by now. If you haven't and you'd like a copy, please email me and let me know ([email protected]). If you're part of one of my stamping groups, you'll be getting your Occasions Mini when I next see you.

偶尔出现的2012年偷吃样品示例:
 This pretty card was created by Kate Creasy. As soon as I get stamping I'll start posting my own samples with all these fun new stamps!!!  

我也很兴奋,因为 下个月大减价开始!!! January 24th is the magic day when our most popular annual promotion begins and I just can't wait!!!!

2012年特卖平价运动鞋!



该卡由Sandy Mathis创建。

新的SAB小册子很棒,我不得不说,我最喜欢的Designer Series系列文章是有史以来您可以在今年的Sale-a-Bration期间免费获得的物品之一!我们有一条缎带和一条铜钉捆绑在一起!  LOVE IT! 邮票套装也很棒! 我将于1月6日举行一次特别的“偷窥”活动,我们将使用场合和SAB系列的所有新邮票和配件制作20张卡片-我真的很期待向大家展示所有新产品! !!! 我们的大人物也将通过所有新的模具和文件夹来完成工作!!!!  FUN FUN FUN!!!!  我现在正在预订 Private Card Classes - gather your friends for a couple of hours of card making! I'll provide all the supplies, you just need your own adhesive, and I'll do the rest! These card classes have been super popular since I started doing them and we've all been having a blast! So contact me if you like to learn more about these classes and/or to book your own - and get FREE stamps!!!!  If you received one of my Christmas cards in the mail, with my Sale-a-Bration booking coupon, don't forget you'll get even MORE free stamps if YOU contact me before I call you!

I am off to San Antonio, Texas in January too, for Stampin' Up!'s Leadership Conference.  I can't wait! It's going to be awesome!

So as I'm sure you can tell, I am really looking forward to the new year and all that it holds. But right now I just want to catch my breath from the Holidays and STAMP! LOL (I wonder if I can get my MIL stamping too....).

顺便说一句,如果您还没有在我的 宁静的压模Facebook页面,看看我的甜心&一位了不起的丈夫让我过圣诞节:
Personalized license plates!  How COOL is THAT??? Now I just have to fix my decor elements (the top part of the 'f' has come off on the word 'effort') and I'm all set!

HAPPY STAMPING!

Happy Wednesday!

Hi Everyone! I have taken so many photos lately and I thought I'd share. This will show you what I've been up to the last few weeks!:-)  

On the last Thursday of every month we have our team meeting where we share ideas for growing our business, learning new stamping techniques, make and take projects, card swaps and recognition for everyone's accomplishments. We always have a super good time.

 Kathy and Leigh. Leigh comes every month, driving over an hour each way! Thanks Leigh! I love that you are always a part of our meetings.xo

 Leigh and Carmen. Carmen is Leigh's first recruit and we're so glad she's a part of our 'Serene Stampers' group!
 Beth holds up the snowflake we made as one of our make and take projects. We just used foam sheets with the snowflake die and the fabulous Big Shot Machine. Then we layered our snowflakes, using a brad in the centre and then added lots of glitter!
 Each month we take turns doing demonstrations. This month Leigh demonstrated how to make this beauty. Love the 'faux' burned edges too!
 We had a big snowfall a couple of weeks ago - the last time this area got this much snow in one swoop was back in the 50's. Roads were treacherous. I was glad I work from home, lemme tell ya. I was even more glad when my husband got home! Fortunately the weather has gotten really warm and all the snow is GONE! YAY!
 Gagetown has a great event every year called "Christmas in the Village" - there are a lot of talented folks who open up their homes and businesses to the public to sell their arts and crafts. You can find everything from pottery to homemade jams. The day was absolutely beautiful and perfect for walking around. I found a few fun items for some friends and family on my Christmas list.
 好漂亮,河水沿着村庄流淌。

 Santa was greeting everyone at this home. There was a Christmas tree inside the house that was MASSIVE! I have no idea how they got it inside. The ceilings are vaulted and the top of the tree touched the ceiling.  It was stunning.

 我们被告知一个小地方,叫做 Gagetown Fruit Farm,午餐,工匠面包,烘烤食品和新鲜的苹果酒。 这一切都由一个年轻的丈夫和妻子经营,他们当然做得很好-这个地方整整都是我们在那里的! 我买了一条不可思议的南瓜茴香籽面包。 For lunch Russell had a roast beef biscuit and a fun carrot salad that was made with all different colour carrots, cut into thin strands - it was so good! (Yes, my sweetie shared!)
 I had a delicious French Onion Soup. We also had glasses of cold Apple cider and then shared a mug of hot apple cider. Happy happy moments...LOL We can't wait to go back - which will be in the spring, as they close over winter. We'll be counting the days...

 I also had some of my items for sale - candles, tile coasters, greeting cards and brooches and hair clips. 
 Stephanie, a lovely demonstrator in my group, also had items for sale. She has been so busy creating this season and has been participating in lots of craft shows. Her cards are fabulous and I loved her display!
 My friend Sara had her little shop set up with gorgeous items made with wool spun from local sheep (and llamas), including some of her own. A lot of work went into these beautiful scarves and hats!
 Some of my candles.

 这是“乡村圣诞节”期间开放的另一个家。
 在盖奇敦遍布可爱的招牌。 我们真的很开心。
 Time for PMS night! Held on the last Saturday of every month, my friends come over for pizza, music (or martinis) and stamping. I always make home made pizza using Jamie Oliver's recipe -太好了。 这是乔安妮(Joanne),让她的心变白...

 My hubby usually 'hides' when all the girls come over but we managed to snag him for a photo.
 好朋友=好时光!  We had a blast!
 This weekend I am doing a birthday party for a little girl turning 6. She and her friends (10 of them) will be stamping some cute little projects - I'll post photos next week. These are the invitations I made.
 This is a really cute template with My Digital Studio. I ran the card stock through the Big Shot with the dots folder and added Dazzling Diamonds and ribbon.  Cute! All the party info. is on the inside.

 I've also had some friends who have recently had babies so I whipped up some of these cards on My Digital Studio too, then I used the dryer sheet technique that I recently demonstrated in our stamp clubs. I was quite pleased with the final result.
 Look what arrived yesterday!! Is life good or what?!!! This all belongs to my customers so I'll be getting it ready to be picked up/delivered. I'm still waiting my big pre-order (Occasions and Sale-a-Brations) to arrive, which should be tomorrow. Which is actually a good thing, otherwise nothing on my to-do list would get done *wink*

If you are on my mailing list, you would have received my 12 days of Holiday Helper projects. This was one of the cute tutorials.
I used an old window I found on the side of the road a couple of years ago! I loved how this turned out! The flip side of the window is white and I'll turn it into a 'welcome' year-round piece after Christmas.
 Since the weather has been so warm and mild, Russell and I have been taking advantage of it and getting our house decorated with lights and evergreens. Here I am peeking out of the loft of our barn as I get ready to pass down all the boxes of Christmas decorations to my hubby.

 We bought this massive wreath at the Farmer's Market in Hampton. It's perfect for our barn!


 Yesterday I met up with my dear friends, Deb and daughter Becky (and Lamia and Neina) to go get our Christmas trees. We had such a good time! This is the tree Deb chose. We cut it down the ole' fashioned way, taking turns with the saw. Then we give it a good push and 'crack' both tree and myself came crashing down! LOL
 Here's the tree I picked. Becky and I put Lamia's hat on top so that we could find it when we came back with the saw...LOL

That's it for me. I hope you enjoyed all my photos. I'm going to be really busy over the next little while (as I'm sure we all are!) but will try to post again soon!

Enjoy the day&
HAPPY STAMPING!

Here's a sneak peek of one our new stamp sets (available January 24th), using Stampin' Up!'s "My Digital Studio" software:
 这个设置不是很棒吗???我绝对喜欢!

 The beauty about My Digital Studio is the ease and convenience. Once you've designed your card all you need to do is change your background paper for a whole new look!

对于此卡,我使用了软绒面革,而不是Designer Series Paper。


我现在正在预订 
特价促销私人卡派对!  
These are so much FUN!
Here's how it works:
Between 2012年1月24日至3月31日, gather a min. 5 friends and I'll teach each of you some fun stamping techniques and we'll be making cards using all new product from the Occasions Mini and the Sale-a-Bration Mini! You can choose from the following:

4张卡每人$ 15或订单满$ 30免费

I am truly excited about Sale-a-Bration this year - January 24th can't come soon enough! Wait until you see all the new items Stampin' Up! has in store for you!!!!!  

这个周末,我将开始为圣诞节装修房屋。我岳母从英国来圣诞节。 冬天她从未去过加拿大-来到东海岸可能会受到真正的欢迎。 我警告过她要带她温暖的袜子和毛衣。 我还向她保证,我们的房子会很舒适,尤其是带木炉的时候。 我要在12月13日进行日间手术,所以我需要放下几个星期的时间,这是个完美的时机-我在场合和SAB mini的所有新邮票和大型镜头都会在这里,所以您可以猜猜我将如何恢复-踩戳!大声笑我不知道我能否得到get妇的印章,但我确实喜欢挑战……让我看看是否可以用她做一个印模……*眨眼* 罗素一月份的母亲离开时可能需要喝点烈性酒……嘻嘻。
周末愉快,邮票快乐!

PS-如果您仍需要圣诞节礼物的想法,我会提供 Gift Certificates! And if you need to place an order for Christmas gifts you'll need to get them into me by December 9th 确保您的物品能在圣诞节前及时到货!
