Greetings my Paper Peeps!

Yes, I have been AWAY for quite awhile.  Family is first priority and we visited and had relatives staying with us for much of May and most of June!  We are home for awhile, but we already miss our Granddaughters and my cousin and her family very much.  We were as they say "quite the social butterflies" not something we are used to doing, but it turned out we had a wonderful "vacation".

I have to put in a special note about my Granddaughter Emily.  She is on a traveling softball league up in the Berkeley area and her team "The Outlaws" have won every, single one of their games! This winning streak is allowing them to come to San Diego for the softball finals!  We are so very excited that we get to see her and her family again (2 weeks after our visit) and help cheer Emily and her teammates on to what we believe will be a VICTORY!!!  Go Emily!!!

Now it is back to stamping and sharing new things happening in the crafting world and with my favorite company Stampin' Up!  The new Stampin' Up! catalog is out and public. So many fun things in this new catalog. 


But wait!  We hear rumblings that the HOLIDAY CATALOG will soon be available!  That deserves a huge Yippee Skippy from me!  Love the Holiday season, so I personally will be looking sooo forward to it!  I will keep you all posted when that will be available. 

A quick note: IF you JOIN my TEAM in July, you will be able to take advantage of previewing and pre-ordering from the Holiday Catalog before everyone else!  Just think!  BEFORE anyone even sees the catalog YOU will be able to order and receive your items.  I say "Win Win!"  So, to join my TEAM, click on the "Join Me" button in the right sidebar or the "Join the Fun" button at the top of the blog.  I would love to have you on my team of awesome demonstrators and help you take your hobby wherever you want it to go!!!

TOOT TOOT!!!  Stampin' Up! is offering an absolutely awesome promotion for everyone in July and August!   Stampin' Up! has NEVER done anything like this before and it is a deal everyone will want in on!  Details are below!

Header_bonusdays_demo_july0716_engDid you get everything you want from the new annual catalog yet?  It only came out a month ago, but if you are like me, you probably still have some items on your wish list. 

Now is a perfect time to pick up or stock up on essentials such as Card Stock, Adhesives, Embellishments, etc. then use your Coupons during August to treat yourself to items from your Wish List.  For every $50 you spend between July 7 (that's tomorrow!) and July 31 (before shipping and tax), you’ll get a $5 Bonus Days coupon that you can use August 2–31. This is a great opportunity to shop from your wish list, whether you buy your favorite products now or later in August with your coupons!
