As some of you know, I earned the FIJI incentive trip through Stampin' Up. Our son talked us into visiting Australia again (after 19 years) for three weeks before Fiji. So.....that is where I was during most of April and some of May.
It was a fantastic trip - we visited friends we had made 19 years ago and their families - saw SO many beautiful sites and enjoyed our time there tremendously. Then we ended up in Fiji for five wonderful days. Yep, it's literally a paradise - it was nice to relax and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
We visited the South Sea Island one day - took a cruise ship out to it - 15 minutes to walk around the island - it was wonderful
Anyway, we were pretty jetlagged when we arrived home - in transit about 40 hours. So, I've been negligent and trying to get caught up on everything and get some needed rest!
I wanted to share some of the fun stuff that Stampin' Up has been advertising and I haven't paid much attention to.
First they are offering kits that are SO fun, easy, and reasonably priced. One of these is the "Submit a project" Kit. Anyone can submit and project and Stampin' Up has everyone vote on their favorite on Facebook and the winner is chosen for a "kit"
This one is called "Dolled Up"
Now remember I have to have almost everything, and I have all of these products, but I fell for the "kit" and tonight I made it up - literally in about 20 minutes.
You receive everything to make six cards including card stock, stamp, ink (Stampin' Spot), 5/8" Flower Trim, cut-out dress form already stamped, paper daisies, sponge dauber and envelopes! And all this for just $15.95. Is that cool or what?
Here's are the cards
And the other thing I hadn't really done much about was Paper Pumpkin. You ask what THAT is? Well, you know Cinderella's pumpking turned into a carriage and that is kind of what Paper Pumpkin is. It's a subscription and it comes to your door around teh middle of each month. It comes in a box and has everything included to make a project. It can be cards, home decor, journals, etc. etc. And we never know what is coming - that's the fun!
There is a trial kit that sells for $16.95 - that includes shipping. You will receive two little journals which you can decorate and use for just about anything. Takes about 10 minutes to decorate them!!
Again these would make excellent gifts, or use them yourself to jot your notes!!
March's Paper Pumpking was 4 cards
April's issue is another 4 cards
Had to laugh at this one - can you read the words?
"Seriously, You Kick Booty"
"SeriouslY, I Love Your Guts"
No fooling - those are the stamps!!
Again just $14.95 for 4 cards and the supplies to make them. You just add adhesive
You can read more about My Paper Pumpkin here
As I mentioned before, it's a subscription and you will automatically receive your package each month - you can suspend at any time, so you aren't obligated to keep it going. Be sure and choose me as your demonstrator when you are asked!
I promise to get back "on the ball" and start posting regularly again - I have so much to share with you - we did a swap in Fiji and I want to share those wonderful cards with you.
And.....BIG NEWS.... I have new catalogs in hand. Would you like a catalog? All you need to do is let me know - if you have placed an order with me this last year, your catalog is free. If you haven't and you place an order of $50, I will be sending you a catalog.
