February Ronald McDonald House

Crafters -

Once a month, I am blessed to craft at the Columbus Ronald McDonald House. Did you know that the Columbus (Ohio) Ronald McDonald House is the LARGEST in the WORLD! (http://rmhc-centralohio.org/who-we-are/history/)

We meet the THIRD SUNDAY of each month. Stampin'Up! is a corporate sponsor of Ronald McDonald House Charities (Stampin'Up! donates time and money to support Ronald McDonald House Charities. To date Stampin'Up! has contributed over $1.5 million to RMHC and their network of local RMHC Chapters. Visit www.stampinup.com/giving to learn how you can help.)

Each year, Stampin'Up! produces an RMHC stamp set. This year's is the Sharing Sweet Thoughts Stamp Set (available in wood or clear mount). Stampin'Up! donates $3 when you purchase that set too.

Well, yesterday was the third Sunday. It's been a little dreary and gray here in Central Ohio. Matter of fact, we even had some SNOW on Saturday! It didn't hang around long, just enough to make it COLD!

So, I pulled out some fun springtime-y colors (mostly Soft Subtles), including a few retired colors!, and some old kits that had some GREAT stickers with them! Grabbed my Magical Day stamp set and stamped a few unicorns, mermaids, knights, wizards, and even a few dragons! Placed my coloring pencils into my bag and away I went!

Check out the wonderful creations that were made!
This is how the table STARTED!


This card was made by a beautiful young lady!
AND she waited until everyone had made his or her card and came back to make an extra one!
What a sweetheart!

The inside of her card.
Talk about a wonderful young woman!

The Volunteer Coordinator, Amy, made this for one of her co-workers.
I LOVE how sweet, bubbly, and POSITIVE Amy is!
She brightens my day with her hugs upon my arrival!

This little girl sat right down and KNEW she wanted the mermaid AND the unicorn!
FABULOUS coloring job!

One of the moms made this for her 15 year old son, Z.
She told me that her other son, whom they lost when HE was 15, had made a card about 2 years ago at RMHC.
Z talks about that card and his mom wanted to make him one.
She shared that the memories are the best...

This card was made by the mom of an 8-month old.
She told me that she just took down the Christmas ornaments that we made in December.
They were really cute AND fun AND cheery!
So glad she and her son are able to enjoy the crafts she makes for him.
What memories they will have...

The inside of her card.

Mom, her two kids, AND Abigail from RMHC.
Abigail wasn't even working today but still stopped in.
I'm telling you - WONDERFUL people at Columbus RMHC!

This little girl even held up her card so I could get a good photo!
What a sweetie!

The inside of her brother's card.
He had the BEST time coloring with the pencils!

Mom's card for a new baby.
You KNOW the family is going to LOVE this card!

Please lift these families in prayer. And if you are a local Stampin'Up! demonstrator, we'd LOVE to have you join us. Our next crafting date is Sunday, March 18th, from 12p (noon) to 2p Eastern.

Paper Pumpkin Turns 5!

Valentines!

Crafters -

This past weekend was my Reverse Lenten Challenge Class. We made 40 notecards with envelopes and everyone was done with the class after ONLY about 2 hours! Talk about FAST STAMPERS!

(You can always see my current class schedule/upcoming events HERE.)

Seriously, several were taking theirs home to color while watching a game/TV or visiting with family/friends.

BUT, after they left, one of the card designs - I really liked! It used the (soon-to-be-retiring) 2016-2018 InColors and the A Good Day Wood Stamp Set. One of my favorites! I had already planned to make about 40 of this card design for my use. They were already cut and ready to go - just needed the stamping and coloring done.

Well.... I decided to slightly modify that design and make them into VALENTINES CARDS! WHAT FUN!!!

Check them out!
Valentines!


All five of the 2016-2018 InColors were used - Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy, Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach, and Sweet Sugarplum. Emerald Envy is my favorite - SO going to miss that beautiful emerald green color!

The hearts are from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits - you can cut SEVEN of those little hearts at once. LOVE that die! Add a mini glue dot to the back of the hearts and it is done! I also used my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush for the ice cubes and lemonade glass contents. REALLY makes them sparkle!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Party Pandas!

Crafters -

I just spent the BEST weekend at a Leadership event. We crafted, laughed a HUGE amount, and reconnected with some friends met only while crafting online. It's so nice to be able to sit across from other crafters and actually talk with them! Talk about recharging! LOVE my stampin' sistas!

I came home on Saturday night/Sunday morning (yup! after TWO days of crafting, got in the car and drove 5 hours home!). You see, I met a wonderful young lady last year at a craft fair. Well, this year, she turned 9 years old! And she and her mom asked me to do a card class for her birthday entertainment!

I had an absolute BLAST! First, Lilly and her friends were just so nice! And Lilly had a unicorn theme this year - and yes, we used the Magical Day Clear Stamp Set. BIG HIT! HUGE! One of the little girls even SQUEALED when I opened the box with that card inside! We made several cards and even a personalized notebook. Lilly's mom is a professional photographer and took LOTS of photos - can't wait to see them!!!! :)

But, because it is always fun to start with an easy card/project - and candy is ALWAYS good - we made a little valentine favor using the Party Pandas Clear Stamp Set. Want to see it?
Party Panda Valentine Favor for Lilly's Birthday Party

I'll be doing this little cutie for my Facebook Live on Wednesday, February 7th, 2018 at 11:30 am (Eastern). It will be a VERY short video because this is just so easy to make!

And the kicker is... we made a VERY similar item at the Leadership event this past weekend as one of our make-and-takes! Now, I did alter the dimensions to fit the candy I chose to use, but it is almost the exact same design! YUP - I put my make-and-takes to work! AND, not to break my arm patting myself on my back, but I arrived home at 2am, got up at 7am, and had this little cutie cut and packed to be at Lilly's by 12:30pm! YUP - it is THAT quick and easy!

Look forward to "seeing" you on Wednesday at the Facebook Live! Enjoy!

WOW!

I know you saw my post the other day about Stampin'Up!'s product of the week (see that post HERE),  but were you able to watch my Facebook Live Video on Wednesday, January 10th? You can see the Facebook video HERE. The Amazing You Stamp Set, when paired with the Celebrate You Thinlits, is well... AMAZING!

YUPPERS!

I made my first card using BOTH of those wonderful Sale-A-Bration choices! And I had just received it Tuesday night.

These two combine so nicely and make such a quick and easy card!

Check it out!
Amazing You Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set

I also mention about winning a shopping spree on that video. Spaces are filling up - place your online order using Host Code DNAXBTU3 and you will also receive five (5) free cards with your Sale-A-Bration order.

Sale-A-Bration Product of the Week!

There are SO many wonderful choices in the Sale-A-Bration brochure this year; I want ALL of them!

So... here's one of the fabulous offerings - actually TWO of them! Read on!
Amazing You Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set

And coordination is key with this set!


While the stamps work well on their own... The thinlits are also a great stand-alone - BUT together is when they really make magic!


One of the benefits of coordination that I LOVE LOVE LOVE is that creativity becomes much easier when I don't have to hunt down items to pair. Instead, I can reach for what I already KNOW goes well together.


AND with a $150 order during Sale-A-Bration, BOTH the stamp set AND the thinlits can be earned - FOR FREE - and Stampin'Rewards are earned on top of that! WIN - WIN - SCORE!!


Want to see it in action? From a Stampin'Up! youtube video? Check it out!



LOVE IT!


And - SPOILER ALERT - those thinlits will be in the NEW 2018-2019 Catalog. And you can earn them for FREE now! DOUBLE SCORE!


You can order ONLINE and when you qualify, you can also earn YOUR spot to my Sale-A-Bration Celebration in April! This is only for those who place $150 / or THREE $50 orders with me (less than $150 - make sure you use the Host Code!). Order amounts are before shipping and taxes. The easiest way to think of it - earn THREE (3) Sale-A-Bration items when you place you orders with me.

Place your Online Order HERE. Use Host Code DNAXBTU3 and receive five free cards from me with your Thank You Note. *If you order is over $150, do not use the host code.

Remember - all amounts listed are BEFORE shipping and tax
Enjoy!

Hmmm...

I know!

How about a Technique Class offered once a month, with different techniques each month?

I'm calling it the 'Nique Geek (TechNique) and it will be offered the THIRD THURSDAY of each month.
