Card Class - GIFTS

It is a BEAUTIFUL day in Central Ohio today. I just LOVE that I can sit in my Craft Room and look out my front window!

I finally finished the PDF for the June Card Class - GIFTS - and just sent it to those who have placed an online order of $75 or more and used this month's Hostess Code. Just a couple days left to get YOUR copy of the Class PDF too! Aren't the cards just beautiful?
The Hello Honey card shows an alternate design using the same stamp set, Work of Art. I am attending Connie Babbert's (Create with Connie & Mary) Mini Convention next month and was looking over her blog and saw how she did her flower with a different stamp. She's so talented! So I CASE'd her design! Thanks so much to Connie Babbert for sharing her gifts and talents! I've also seen a larger flower made using that same "swoosh" stamp to make a FULL flower and using the circle for the center. So many ways to make flowers with that set! Thank you to Stampin' Up! for GIVIN…

Pelotonia 2014 FUNdraiser / 3-4-5 Card Class

Many of you know my husband Paul. Salt-of-the-Earth, sweetheart of a nice guy, and my best friend. You can see what a nice guy he is by reading about how he went with me in April 2013 to Salt Lake City to attend an SU! Regional with me. That blog posting is here. What a GREAT guy, huh? Did you notice? He even wore a Stampin' Up! shirt too!

And, in case you didn't know, my husband is an AVID cyclist. When we met several years ago, he was averaging about 10,000 miles on his bicycle annually. 10,000 miles!!!! Some people put that on their cars! Hubby puts the hammer down and flies when he is on that bicycle! Remind me to tell you the story about him and me riding a century (a hundred miles!!!!) BEFORE we married. The basics are - He is such a strong cyclist, I stopped pedaling going up a rolling hill and was done. He placed his hand on my bicycle seat, while he was on my left cycling on his own bicycle, and he pedaled BOTH OF US up this hill. Yeah - I was impressed too! And I fini…

New Catalog, New Gifts Card Class, AND a New Hostess Code!

Crafters -

The new catalog is LIVE! Don't you just LOVE it? I know I do! I'll be updating my blog and Stampin' Up! is working on the update to our online stores, so check back for the direct link. In the meantime, you can go to my online store at and you can look at the catalog. Just follow the links once you get there!

If you have placed an order in the past six months, you should already have your catalog. Let me know if you'd like a new catty!

I've also updated my 'Classes' page with the new June class. As many of you know, I always give gifts of cards to friends, teachers, coworkers, etc. Well, how about a class where you make EIGHT cards (four designs, two of each design)? That way, you make four for you, and four to give away. AND you will also make a really cute (and super easy) gift box for the four that you will be 'gifting' away!

If the date doesn't work into your schedule or you are too far away to attend th…
