Hey! How did it get to be Monday again? Last weekend just FLEW by! And you know what? The housecleaning fairy forgot to stop by like she promised. But, I guess it's ok...because I spent the weekend designing July's classes and clubs for YOU! I have to say...they're pretty amazing! Watch for more details coming very soon!
This week, it's all about Bags and Boxes! The best way to demonstrate bags and boxes is to actually video them for you. That's right...it's going to be be a FULL WEEK of videos! Sound like fun? Let's get started. Ready? Set. CRAFT!

This last weekend, I had the honor & privilege of presenting at the #CharlotteOnStage2019 convention. I was given the Follow Your Art suite, and let me tell you, it was so much fun crafting and creating with a brand new suite that no one had seen before. Just think about it...all I had to look at were a few samples from the catalog pages. No Pinterest ideas. No Artisan Design Team samples. And no videos. Everything I designed was all mine! To say it was nerve wracking may be a bit of an understatement!
The Follow Your Art suite is full of fun little details, like this Mini Shipping Box and Stampin' Up! Logo Washi Tape, and will make it's debut on June 3, but for all of us who attended #OnStagae2019, it was part of our Product Purchase Premier, meaning, we can order it NOW! This is just one more reason joining Stampin' Up! and my Stamping Bee Team is so amazing! I can't wait to see some of the new samples that will be popping up from fellow demonstrators over the next few weeks.
Out with the old...
Now for a bit of sad news. The retirement list is coming out later today. Watch your email as I'll be sharing that with you. In the meantime, please note that the following 3 products are already on low inventory status. While the Ink Pad & Marker Storage Trays are new and will be available again later this summer, the 2017-2019 In Color Classic Stampin' Pad Assortment and Stampin' Trimmer Cutting Blades will not be! Once they are gone, they are gone for good!
This super cute project was super easy! The Mini Shipping Boxes just need folded and a bit of Follow Your Art washi tape with the Stampin' Up! Log 'seals the deal'.
Base: Follow Your Art Designer Series Paper, 1 7/8" x 3 1/2", punched with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.
Layer 1: Coastal Cabana, Scalloped Layering Circle
Layer 2: Calypso Coral Layering Circle
Layer 3: Whisper White Stitched Shape Circle
Layer 4: Whisper White with a strip of Follow Your Art washi tape across it, and run through the Big Shot with one of the Arts and Crafts border dies.

My neighborhood craft fair is this weekend. And before you roll your eyes and think, oh a little tiny craft fair...there are 2500 homes in my neighborhood! It will be great to see neighbors both familiar and new.
I'm putting some last minute touches on things and making sure I'm ready. This morning, I packaged up these cute Signs of Santa elf packets. Each holds a small hand sanitizer - perfect for teachers, bank tellers, grocery clerks, postal workers - anyone who comes in contact with the pubic during cold and flu season will appreciate that you thought of them. As you can see, I've used the Tags and Tidings bundle for the gift tags. I love that one stamp and die made light work of creating 16 tags. I was done in no time flat!
If you're in the area, come by and see me at the Briar Chapel Fall Market, happening from 11-2 in the Clubhouse. Mention my blog and you can pick a free card!
No time to type! I'm busy, busy, busy getting ready for this Craft fair. But, stay tuned for Saturday's Crafty Saturday Facebook Live where I'll show you how to make this hand sanitizer packet, plus a few more gift packaging ideas!
Upcoming Events - Registration Closes Early this Month
