Pumpkineers and Upcoming Vendor Fair!

Crafters -

On Tuesday evening, we had our monthly Pumpkineers meeting. This is for my customers who are Paper Pumpkin subscribers with me, and I invite my team members to also attend. ALWAYS more fun to craft with your friends!

I even did a little Facebook Live Video. You can watch it on my Facebook page (click to watch the 1:30 video dated March 28, 2017). Remember, I'm new at this, so please be kind! And Summer even brought her new little puppy to visit! He was such a cutie! It's been a while since we've had a puppy...  :)

We had a BLAST! Check out what the crafters made:

After they left, since I have a Vendor Fair on Saturday, April 1st, I made a few extras of the Bunny Bags. These were a HIT! What do you think?

And finally, I have now received my extra refill kits. And had a BLAST playing with them! Check out these alternate designs!

It's like they're bunnies - they are multiplying left and right!  :)  I crack myself up sometimes!

Hope to see you on Saturday, April 1s…

Jar of Love - Reverse Lenten Challenge Card

Crafters -

For the next several weeks (during Lent), I will be showcasing the card designs we did at my Reverse Lenten Challenge Class on February 15th.
Here's the basics: We made 40 notecards using the Whisper White and Crumb Cake Notecards and EnvelopesOn March 1st, 2017, Ash Wednesday, we began giving or sending cards to others (there are 40 days of Lent, NOT INCLUDING Sundays)Can be anyone - child's teacher, co-worker, grocery clerk, bank teller, mom in front of you who has her hands full! Anyone! You get to choose!
For this week's card, I chose to showcase the Jar of Love card. This stamp set is one of those VERY versatile sets! You can purchase the stamp set by itself, or the coordinating framelits, or even better, BUNDLE it and save 10%! I chose to pair it with the Ballon punch and we even blinged-it-up with the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper (I LOVE THIS STUFF!). All supplies used, and the links to purchase them, are listed at the end of this blog posting.

March Coffee and Cards

Crafters -

Last week was so much fun! It was so much fun between my team meeting on Tuesday, the Easter Sampler class on Thursday, and then going to my church's Women's Retreat on Saturday! It was so much fun between all those things, that I didn't realize I hadn't shared the cards from this month's Coffee and Cards!

With Sale-A-Bration ending THIS WEEK!!!!, I used a lot of Sale-A-Bration items for the March cards. Let's face it - the Sale-A-Bration items are going fast! Get them while you can...

Want to see what we did?

The first card I did was the Pear Pizzazz and Wisteria Wonder using the Avant Garden Sale-A-Bration stamp set. Such a pretty AND EASY card. We even used spritzers on this card and I think that was the favorite part of the card!

The balloon card (using the Lift Me Up Bundle) was very similar to my Swap card at my Team Leader's meeting in early March. Again, fast and easy and we used the Sale-A-Bration Carried Away Designer Series Papers AND the S…

Easter Sampler

Crafters -

On Thursday evening, I had my Easter Sampler class. Sit back and enjoy this posting. There are a LOT of photos with this one! And you are gonna LOVE every one of them (I know I do!)!

We played with a variety of new Stampin'Up! products from the Occasions catalog (Supplies listed at the end of this posting - ALONG with an ordering special!).

Want to see what we made?

The crafters received a package of the Falling in Love Designer Series Paper so they could each choose their papers. Check out what each of the ladies in attendance made!

And then, after the ladies left, I played with my extra pieces and parts that I had already cut. Check it out!


Which one is YOUR favorite?

Latte Joy Team Meeting!

Crafters -

You know that feeling? That really good, happy-type of feeling when you have spent the day with friends, you've accomplished a lot, and you just had a GREAT time! You know, the one when you keep thinking about the conversation and just keep smiling like the village idiot! THAT ONE!

Yeah... THAT WAS ME! You see on Tuesday evening, I met with my team! And for the first time EVER, since I now know how to do this, we even did our meeting via Facebook Live! It was GREAT! Two of my team reside in Florida and my friend Carol was able to watch and listen too. I'm confident she was laughing along with us!

Linda, Betty, Faye, and Nancy were all in attendance. Jenny was hoping to attend, and was even going to do a demonstration, but unfortunately she was ill. She was thoughtful enough to stay home and, while we love sharing what we do, we do NOT love sharing germs! What a sweetheart, huh? So, hopefully, she will be able to attend in April and will be able to do her demonstration …

We use this all the time at our church for our card ministry. This set is $26 for the wood mount and just $19 for the clear mount (make sure you have clear block e - you will need it!). The best part about this set is the sentiments. Thinking of You, Praying for you, Get Well Soon, and Sharing in your So…

Dog Days of Crafting!

Crafters -

This week has been a VERY busy week!

I'm just now getting caught up on my sleep from the drive to "that state up north" and I had some minor foot surgery last week that is kinda hobbling me.

Today is my CATCH UP DAY! Ever have one of those? I feel so much better and MUCH more organized when all is where it should be.

So, I'm in my craft studio today. I do a monthly PDF for my Pumpkineers and it takes a little bit of time to do it. PERFECT for today! And I'm finishing my Easter Sampler and will be posting that soon - Again - PERFECT for today! And finally, finishing my Coffee and Card class for Saturday (18th). Busy day, huh?

Candy Bar Box Tutorial AND Facebook LIVE!

Crafters -


**I will be doing a Facebook LIVE on this tutorial at 7pm (Eastern) on Saturday, March 4th. Hope you are able to tune in! https://www.facebook.com/DawnStock.StampinUp.net/ Make sure you "LIKE" my Facebook page so YOU can get all of the updates too!
As you saw on yesterday's post, I met with my Pumpkineers on Tuesday evening. The February kit is called Many Happy Birthdays and had the neatest Pocket cards!

Pocket cards are GREAT for gift cards and with Easter, Mother's Day, Father's Day, and Graduation coming in the next few months, this Paper Pumpkin kit was perfect!

BUT, with my Pumpkineers, I like to give them a few choices to make alternate cards and projects with their kits. SO, we cut apart one, JUST ONE, of the pocket cards and made those items at our meeting.

The MOST POPULAR alternate idea was the box for the Hershey Bar. And I'd like to share the basics of my tutorial with you! FYI - the stamp set was from the Many Happy Birthdays Paper Pumpkin kit.…
