Love Heat Embossing, You'll Love This...

I think that everybody must have a certain sort of love for the heat embossing technique.  It's just so magical to watch a bunch of dull granules turn into a melted brilliance.  This month's technique - "Faux Metal" takes your heat embossing to a new level and new result.  Rather than having a raised image, we are impressing the heated powder with the image.
So - if you are interested in learning this technique and creating 2 other great cards, you can register below for this Friday's class.

Friday, October 27, 2017
Afternoon Session - 2:00 - 5:00pm
Evening Session  - 6:00-9:00pm
Cost:  $15.00  ($10.00 for Stamp Club Members)
Where:  Joan's house - 9505 - 86 Street, Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta

Register for Evening Class:   HERE

Here are the three cards we will be creating.


Hope to see you Friday.  Bring along a friend and get a gift from me for both you and your friend.

Thanks for visiting.

Gettiing in Touch with Happy Mail

Yesterday, I mailed 63 cards.    WooHoo.  I'm on a mission, at the beginning of this new Stampin'Up! year, to make contact with as many of my customers as possible with Happy Mail - 'cause really - who doesn't like getting a "real" piece of mail instead of just bills or flyers.

There were also a number of my customers who I do not have proper addresses for;  they got e-mails with an invitation to send me their address so I could pop a card into the post box to them.

If you do not receive my  e-mailed newsletters, about Stampin'Up! promotions and my events, and you would like to,  contact me with your e-mail address and I'll add you to my list AND if you send me your home address I'll pop a card into the mail to you also.

'Cause Happy Mail is the Best mail!
Have a great day!

October 1 - Beginning of a new Stampin' year!

October 1 marks the beginning of the new Stampin'Up! year and a time to set new goals.  For me, now being a retired woman, I can set a goal I've been longing to meet for quite a while.  That is, to earn an incentive trip.  This year, I will be setting my sights on earning the 2019 trip which is a cruise around the Greek Isles.  Stampin'Up! has always had great trips and you are pampered to the 9's - or so I've been told. I think the Greek Isles is a perfect 1st goal.

And, because it's the beginning of Stampin'Up!'s new year, they have some awesome promotions.

 This year the world celebrates World Card Making Day on October 7, but one day isn't enough for Stampin'Up!.  For ten days (Oct 1-10), you get 15% off Notecards & Envelopes and select stamp sets.  Also, when you buy  Fast Fuse Adhesive, you'll get two refills for FREE.  These items will help you celebrate the best hobby of all - cardmaking.

To celebrate WCMD I am hosting an Open House October 4, 2017 from 5:00-7:00pm and it's FREE.  E-mail me if you are interested in attending and I will send you my address.  I live in Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta.
Come and create a card  for an upcoming event in your life.  Here is a sample card you can create.

Another fantastic offer this month is Designer Series Paper.
  • Sale is from Oct 1-31
  • These is no limit to how many times you can buy three packages of Designer Series Paper and get one free during this sale.
  • You can choose which three packages of DSP you will order from the sale items and which package you will receive for free.
  • Designer Series Paper purchased as part of a Starter Kit does not qualify for this sale.
Take advantage of BOTH the World Card Making Day promotion (15% off selected stamp sets and notecards) and the DSP promotion in a combined order and get your name put in a draw for a prize from me.  Remember the is a deadline for the World Cardmaking Day orders.

This is the first of many awesome events this month.  So stay posted.
