Here are the last of my conventions shares.  We will soon be doing a Holiday Mini share and can't wait for that.
This first one is by Priscilla Thoreson, she is a sweet lady for Cali and one of the funniest story teller I have met.
Here is Zarogina Azocar share, I love this kitty set so cute.  Zarogina is also from Cali and a very sweet lady.

This is from Sheilah Neff, she wasn't able to attend but sent in a share with her downline.  Sheilah is also a Cali Girl and I can't wait to meet her.

Here is a simple thank you card I did for a friend.  It is a simple 4x5 card mounted on a 41/4 x 51/2 piece of colored cardstock.  Easy Peasy.
Until Next time.....Be kind and Do one thing today that makes YOU happy.

Photopolymer News

Have you ever gotten news of a new Photopolymer set coming out to find it was sold out before you knew it existed???  Well I have, we as demonstrators are not allowed to demonstrate a product that is not available for customer purchase, so once a set has been sold out it is now in the "Retirement Closet".  During one of the presentations it was announced that Stampin' UP! will reserve the 2nd Tuesday of each month to release it newest Photopolymer set, now we can all look forward to regular releases AND so everyone who wants it can have it, SU will guarantee availability of that set for 6 months from release date.  Woo Hoo!  Here is the latest release in case you missed it. 

Christmas Bliss
 Christmas Bliss   138897 $15.95
There are several sets being introduced/reintroduced in the Holiday Mini.  In addition the Company has added more sets to the Inspire Create Share 2014-2015 Catalog. 
JUST A TIP....When you are using these stamps use a light touch inking and always stamp with a mat underneath.  You get a much better image.  Want more check out all the Photopolymer stamp sets available on my website

Now on to my shares....
This is Lee Conrey's swap, she cut out the Hot with our Little Letter Thinlits. 

Here is another of my Cali sisters Sabrina Gnaze.  What a doll she is.  I was so glad to meet her and the other "West Coast' Ladies.  Sabrina achieved this fabulous color with our new Blendabilities Alcohol Ink Markers.  What dramatic color.

Lastly, this one is from Susan Best. 
Susan is a wonderful Demonstrator, she worked very hard this year and achieved the title of Manager.  Wow, what an inspiration.

Well, I didn't mean to make this so long but I have plenty of news to share and I don't want you to miss out on any of it.  Until next time....Be kind and Do One Thing Today that makes YOU Happy!

Convention bound

Hi all
Leaving very early in the am to Salt Lake City for Stampin' UP! annual convention.  I am sooooo excited and looking forward to meeting some new Starz and seeing old friends.  I wanted to share a card I did this morning.  It's a thank you for the housekeeping staff at the hotel.  It's done with Work of Art, Flower Patch and Blended Bloom.

Since you won't tell my fellow Jacksonville is my special swap card that we are doing on Friday.  This is done with a new stamp (it's a background) called Corner Garden.  My colors are Soft Sky, Smoked Slate and Whisper White.  I embossed the sentiment on front with Smoky Slate embossing powder and used Shimmer Paper to give it a little pop. 

I'll be back soon to share all the news from Convention.  Hope you enjoy your week and remember Be Kind and .....Do one thing today that makes YOU happy.

Another New share

Hi All
Wow we are sizzling here in South West Florida.  We are soon entering into our rainy season, which is a little late this year.  But is great to feel the sun on your skin laying in the pool with a cool drink in hand.  Well I have been busy listing some of my retired stamp sets on Ebay.  I have a very large collection but I find when I go to retired stamps it is always the same ones.  So my empty closet will be someone gain, I can use the room and the $$ to get new products.  It's a win win.  The list is to long to post but if you are looking for some of the older stamp sets, let me know and we can see if I have it.
I am loving the new catalog....just filled with great new sets and products.  I have been working on my swaps for Convention and for my Group, the Jacksonville Starz.  We do a swap of new products to give everyone a idea pool to pull from.  It is great and I got some fabulous cards from my Sister Starz.  I am going to share the one I did for the group first then I can share a few of the ones I got.
I used the stamp set Bloom With Hope, It's a hostess set.  The sentiment came for Work of Art and I used the new Blendabilites Alcohol Markers to color.  The launch of this new product was a little delayed and the full line is not ready for you to purchase.  There are a limited number of color families that can by purchased now.  For more details, just follow the link below.

In addition to the new sets and Marker I used our new 1/4 cotton ribbon with I am loving.
Here is a list of supplies
Bloom with Hope, Work of Art Stamp Sets.  Bermuda Bay, Basic Black and Whisper White Card Stock.  The Blendabilities I  used were Cherry Cobbler, Rich Razzleberry, Coastal Cabana, and Old Olive collections.  These along with a few others are now on my site to purchase.  Just hop over to my Stampin' UP! store.  Use Hostess  Code 6FTREQ97 when checking out and you will be entered into my Hostess of the month drawing (Hostess of the month is only valid when the workshop total is equal to a minimum order of $150.00)
Until next time....Be Kind and Do one thing today that makes YOU happy!!
