Christmas stamp-a-stack 1

We are just one day away from the launch of the exciting Holiday Mini Catalog. To tease your excitement, I'm announcing my Christmas Stamp-a-stack class a day earlier!

I will post more detailed pictures of these cards after tonight.

Just like last year I will be doing 3 sets of Christmas stamp-a-stack classes from September to November. At each class we will make 9 cards of 3 design each. All supplies to complete the 9 cards are included along with envelops.

As a bonus this year, if you sign up for all 3 of my stamp-a-stacks (September, October, November) this year, you will receive a free holiday ornaments class from me held on December 7 at 7pm!!

Class is $20 each and will held at my home. Here are the dates:
Tuesday, September 20 7pm-9pm
Tuesday, October 25 7pm-9pm
Tuesday, November 22 7pm-9pm

Each month I will be offering a different set of cards for the Stamp-a-Stack classes, so please be sure to check back for details of these cards.

Here are a few more swaps using the The Open Sea stamp set also from the Summer Mini Catalog that is ending tomorrow!
This card featuring coordinating DSP to the stampset is made by Deb Freels

This swap was made by first time convention goer Melinda Pascual. It was nice meeting you Melinda!

The Open Sea stamp set is my favourite set from the summer mini. It's so sad to see it go.

At my wonderful weekend retreat, I was showered with pillow gifts, great food, and a wonderful waterfront view! On top of all of that, another member who earned the trip made us all a cute swap!

This swap was made from the talented Sandra Farrell. She is one of the 10 Stampin' Up! Artisan winners of 2011! The award is one of the toughest award that you can win thru Stampin' Up! I'm sooo proud of her!

The swap card is made using the Recess stamp set from the Summer Mini Catalog. Reminder that the Summer Mini Catalog is exclusive until August 31, 2011. You won't be able to get this cute Recess stampset after that!

Card for the team

My downlines were also at the promotion dinner on Friday. So I made this card for my team and my upline.
Stampin' Up! Creative elements card by Ida Chan
Just doing a quick post this morning because I'm heading out to a wedding now.

I used the Creative Elements stampset for this card. I must say this stampset is absolutely gorgeous and I love every stamp in this set. Pin It now!

Short but oh so sweet

After last night's amazing dinner at my upline's house where she treated all her downline who promoted last year, I was swept away by her to The Sunshine Coast for my all inclusive weekend getaway! This trip was for those who promoted to a certain level last year.

We slept in this morning (at a wonderful oceanview cabin), ate breakfast, and crafted in our jammies!
Can you guess what we are making? Come back to my blog soon because I'll be posting our weekend projects!

Unfortunately I had to cut my trip short because I'm going to a wedding tomorrow. It was sad to leave an awesome getaway where I got spoiled every minute! Hopefully I can earn next year's trip too! It'll be my third if I earn it again.

Weekend getaway

So again this year, I earned a secret all-inclusive weekend getaway thru my upline. It's so secretive that I won't know where I'm going until I get there. Feels like I'm getting "kidnapped" but of course in an exciting and fun way!

Last year she took me to Whistler and it was a blast! I can't wait for this year's. Keep you posted when I get there tonight!
Have a wonderful sunny weekend!

Other convention swap card

I just realized that I haven't had a chance to show my other convention swap card. I actually swapped out all my cards and forgot to keep one to myself so I had to take a photo of it at my upline's studio in Vancouver.

I used the Nature Walk stampset on this card and used the clear block to stamp the background color. Neat, ya? The clear block by itself can be a stamp!
Just a little hint of what is to come in the upcoming Holiday Mini Catalog..there's a new tool to make this card a whole lot quicker! Wait til September 1st to see what it's all about! New mini catalog is out then!
