Hidy Ho Stampers,
Well Saturday was my quarterly Diva/Dude Day. We had to modify the name as we had TWO male teammates earn the title this time. It was so much fun and everyone was so excited for both of them. Diva/Dude Day was a concept that my friend Patsy Waggoner shared with me a few years ago and she shared at leadership this year. She was an amazing presenter!
My top 10 in sales and anyone that recruits for the quarter is invited to a very special stamping day. I do all the preparation and they come and enjoy and stamp and eat! Oh how we laughed! So this is how it played out…
My daughter Kate got up in the morning and started prepping the food.
mmmmmmmm we had mini pies filled with cherries and some filled with apples.
found this on Pinterest – the dip is in the bottom and the veges are all in individual cups (so much easier).
Here is one of three tables filled with food.
The tables were set and ready for them to come.
Everyone had our new Twitterpated Fabric and Twitterpated Designer Series Paper and Blushing Bride Pleated Ribbon and Twitterpated Buttons and Maze Game pieces and more.
Here's Dude Chris along with Val and MaryMargaret.
They were all sewing and NO ONE was whining about it! Believe it or not, they were all having FUN!
Here is one of the cards I created for them to complete.

Okay so what was YOUR favorite Super Bowl commercial? Mine was the M & M commercial when the one M & M took off his shell does that mean he was naked?! :0) He was so cute.
Hidy Ho Stampers,
I've been seeing a lot of these Easter Bonnets out there and I just had to make one. Here is my version of the "Easter Bonnet"!
1. I used one of the containers that our embellishments come in (recycling)!
2. The bottom piece is cut from the Big Shot and our large scallop die ##113468 found on page 207. I then ran that through our Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder #120175 found on page 214 of the big catalog and adhered that to the bottom of the container with Mini Glue Dots #103683 found on page 197 of the Big Catalog.
3. Next I wrapped around the the sides of the container in our Pretty In Pink 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon #119956 (I also made the ribbon bow with that ribbon). I adhered the ribbon with Sticky Strip #104294 found on page 197.
4. Next you will see the flowers. They were made with – yes you guessed it – my new favorite die – the Fun Flowers Die #121812 found on page 39 of the Occasions Mini Catalog. I used only the small flower on the die - cut one Rose Red, one Pretty In Pink and one Whisper White. Spritz both sides with water and crunch them up, then very carefully open them up, you want them to still look wrinkled. After they are dry, use your Mini Glue Dots (aka snot dots) #103683 found on page 197 to glue the three flowers together and then to add one of our absolutely ADORABLE Vintage Flower Adornments #121879 found on page 15 of the Occasions Mini Catalog.
5. Now moving on to the top of the bonnet, punch out a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the 2 3/8" scallop Circle punch then run it through the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing folder and adhere it to the top of the container with the Mini Glue Dots.
Isn't it just adorable…hey, this could go along with the sweater I made yesterday!
And look how yummy the inside looks! JELLY BEANS!!!!
I live in Saratoga New York and Bonnets are HUGE here during our Horse Racing Season. Don't ya just love them??!!!
Hope you enjoyed my project. Take care.
I wanted to share another vintage card with you that I created for my Big Shot class. I'm very pleased with the way it came out.
Inside View – The scallop is cut only half way into the card, that's what makes it swing.
Stamp Sets used: Bells and Boughs (the stamp set that is included in the Vintage Bundle) and En Francais Background Stamp
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso; Cherry Cobbler; Very Vanilla and Watercolor paper
Ink: Black Stazon; Early Espresso
Accessories: Big Shot; Scallop Circle; Circle Cutter (set at 2 3/4); Petals-a-Plenty Embossing Folder; Cherry Cobbler and Always Artichoke reinkers; Aqua Pens
I really love this old fashioned vintage look. I have a workshop tomorrow and we are doing a scrapbook page and VINTAGE TAGS. LOVE IT!
Thank you for stopping by my blog.

So what is this month's Flash Sale? I'm just in love with all the new Designer Series Papers in the catalog. They start on page 172 and go all the way to page 175. So let me help you fall in love with the papers just a little more. For one day and one day only, SUNDAY, AUGUST 29th, you will be able to buy these in my flash sale. You have until 11:00 p.m. Sunday night to get your order in.
Isn't this beautiful. They are even more beautiful in person.
If you do not have a demonstrator and would like to purchase some of the Designer Series paper from me - here is your chance to do it at a discount. If you purchase two packs of any of the designer papers on the above pages, you will get the third package (of equal or lessor value) for half price. So go get your catalog and start looking. Are there any papers you just HAVE to have? You'll be saving yourself at least $5 or more depending on the papers you pick out. If you pick out three of our Designer Series Packs, you'll be saving $10 on one of the packs. Look at how beautiful they are.
And now for my card. Last Sunday, August 22nd, I celebrated my TWO YEAR ANNIVERSARY. I have been cancer free for two years!!! YEAHHHHHH….we wanted to celebrate on that day but we knew it was going to rain so we decided to celebrate on the Saturday before. We started out by going to the Saratoga Race Track. It is such a beautiful place and I just love to people watch! Here is a picture I took of one of the races.
Then we went to dinner and shopping in Lake George. It was a beautiful day surrounded by my family. FUN (and phew, one more year behind me)!
So what do I do on the "real" day? It's raining and everyone is busy doing stuff. So I went into my stamp room and started making "pink" cards. I found a card that I just loved at Convention. I think one of the girls did it in their demo booth but I took a picture when it was on the board so I'm not sure who to give the credit to. Anyway, I just kept making pink cards and then I sent them out to all the girls I know that are going through cancer treatments right now. I had to make quite a few of them. But it made me feel good to do it.
I got a call today from a really good friend. She was just diagnosed with breast cancer and wanted to talk. So guess what….she too will be getting a "pink" card from me. I hope it makes her feel just a little better inside.
Sending cards really does make you feel so good inside. No matter what you are going through. Did you send yours out today?
Thank you for stopping by my blog and reading to the end (it's tough because I'm so long winded)! But I appreciate you trying. Have a great day.
