New Catalog Launch and Facebook Live TODAY!

Crafters -

Two. More. Sleeps.

That's it! Then the new catalog will be here and we can order out of it! YEAH!!!!

Can you tell I'm just the teeniest bit excited about it?  :)  Anyone want to guess what I'm going to be talking about TODAY for my Facebook Live at 11:30 am Eastern? Hmmm.... maybe something(s) out of the new catalog? Make sure you tune into my Facebook page at 11:30 to see! (My facebook page is: http://www.facebook.com/DawnStock.StampinUp.net/)


Wednesday evening is the first night of my New Catalog Launch / Kick-Off. That's the time where my customers can swing by and pick up their catalogs. I have ordered enough catalogs for all of my customers who have placed a $50 or more order in the past year. Those catalogs are ready for them!

Not a customer yet? Haven't placed an order for a while? NO PROBLEM! Swing by! Place your order during the New Catalog Launch / Kick-Off and I'll have a catalog for you when your order arrives! Easy-peasy!

And, as soon as I hit "submit" for this blog posting, I'm headed to the Post Office. Want to see what I have been working on for the past few weeks?
New Catalogs
Ready for New Catalog Launch / Kick-Off

For those of you who have been customers for a while, you know that I bind the catalogs for my hosts from the previous year (those who earned my Sale-A-Bration Celebration too!). Well, I also have a few customers who live out of state. I'm a-guessing they will not be attending the New Catalog Launch on Wednesday evening so I'm mailing theirs to them TODAY! (June Birthday cards are in the box too!)

And do you see those cute little baggies with the blue on the top? Want to know what's in those? Gotta attend the New Catalog Launch on Wednesday evening or Saturday morning!

I look forward to seeing you today on Facebook LIVE at 11:30 am Eastern, Wednesday evening at the Catalog Launch, and/or Saturday morning at the Catalog Launch! See you soon!

Spring Latte Retreat Photos!

Crafters -

We had so much fun this past weekend at my SECOND Latte Retreat - Spring Edition. (NOTE: The Latte Retreat - Summer Edition will be Saturday, August 5th, 2017. Send in your deposit to reserve your spot now!)

Each crafter received a goody bag with almost $30 worth of goodies inside! And, because it is really fun to surprise and delight my customers, I even decorated a few of the containers. (You can see the BEFORE photos by viewing THIS posting on my Facebook page. I didn't blog about it, just posted it on Facebook - did you know I was on Facebook?)

This was a smaller group and we did more WOW-type of projects. Let's face it. It is now spring and summer is right around the corner! There is Mother's Day, Father's Day, graduation, teacher gifts, and there may even been a wedding or two this summer, not to mention those new babies being born!

So we concentrated on gift type of projects, along with a couple of WOW! cards. Want to see what we made?
Spring 2017 Latte Retreat Projects

I think the Pop-and-Twist card was the favorite! I know it was in November when I did my first class on it (Buckeye Class - November 2016). This time we used the new Ribbon of Courage Stamp Set that I received while at the Savannah OnStage. This is NOT available for preorder so it was a LOT of fun to use it!

We also used the new Eastern Palace Suite on a Double Z fold card. You can get that NOW - Stampin'Up! has offered it as an early release to us. LOVE IT! The Lemon-Lime Twist design was a BIG HIT!

And thanks to my friend Summer, she told me about Classico Spaghetti Sauce. Did you know that it comes in a Mason Jar, complete with lid? ME NEITHER!!!! And it is always good to recycle and reuse. So, we did just that and had those filled with different types of hard candies. I already gave mine away to my friend Donna Jean.

And finally, we made a cute little tin using the soon-to-be retired Crumb Cake Notecards, the current Whisper White Notecards, and the new-to-the-catalog Very Vanilla Notecards. It's always fun to bling things up with some of the Rhinestones. Because the tin was so cute, that one has already been given away too! My friend Emma helped me at church a couple of weeks ago while watching a baby. Emma even shared her stuffed animal Hoppity with the baby. Talk about a sweetheart. I thought maybe she could put some of her things in the tin. Just gave it to her on Sunday and her mom let me know that she liked it. :)

And here are the ladies with their individual creations! 

A good time was had by all! Look forward to seeing you in August!

Sale-A-Bration Celebration and a Facebook LIVE Event!

Crafters -

Saturday was my Annual Sale-A-Bration Celebration and we had a BLAST!

Crafters earned a spot to this EXCLUSIVE annual event! How did the crafters earn their spot, you may ask? Well, here's the 4-1-1!

During Sale-A-Bration (January through March), I had several workshops. Each Host who had a workshop earned his or her invitation (and yes, I do have a husband/wife couple who had their OWN workshop!). And for the customers? When customers placed $150 in orders during the same timeframe, they ALSO earned an invitation. 

Everyone who earned a spot received some of the Sale-A-Bration Glimmer Papers (LOVED THAT STUFF!), a sampling of the Sale-A-Bration Metallic ribbons, and a few other goodies. EVERYONE who attended in person, received a coffee cup with some chocolates inside! YUMMY!

Each person completed several projects. We used some soon-to-be retired items, and we also used some NEW stuff out of the NEW catalog! Including the BUNDLE that can be ordered TODAY! Check out the NEW Eastern Palace Suite!

** TUNE into my Facebook page on Wednesday, May 3rd at 11:30am to see a Facebook LIVE of the new item! ** https://www.facebook.com/DawnStock.StampinUp.net/

Here are the crafters, hard at work!

It looks a little dark outside in some of the photos. We had a DOWNPOUR during the Celebration! The Columbus (Ohio) Capital City Half Marathon was even cut short because of the weather! (Hubby was downtown running his VERY FIRST Half Marathon at this time. He said that the lightning was SO BAD, he crossed the finish line, they handed him the Finisher's Medal, advised him to seek shelter IMMEDIATELY, and then told him to NOT touch the metal barriers! YIKES! THAT makes a GREAT day for crafting, huh?) 

And for those who were unable to attend, but still earned a spot, I stamped and completed their projects for them! All were picked up and received by yesterday. And, for the one FABULOUS crafter in Florida? Hers was sent and she should have it by Tuesday! Thanks to all the crafters for making this such a success!

** I made my Grandma's Coffee Cake for everyone as a mid-morning snack. A couple of years ago, I could not find my recipe and was going to make it for a class. I had emailed my folks in Florida to get a copy of it. My Dad sent me an email with the recipe, writing "Mom is not up yet but I think this is it. Note on back that neighbor gave to Grandma in the 50's" and the email is dated 6/2/2012. Dad fought hard, but we lost him to cancer in February 2015. #cancersucks  While I have since found my written recipe, I still pull up that email. Was VERY thankful that I could share my family with my stamping friends while we ate our fresh-from-the-oven, baked-with-love, coffee cake. **

I am on my way to earning the Alaskan Cruise with Stampin'Up! Thank you so much for supporting my business!
