Clearance Rack Blitz

The Clearance Rack Blitz has been a big hit customers, and us demonstrators . . . but if you want to take advantage of up to 80% off of discontinued Stampin’ Up! products, you need to act fast. The Clearance Rack Blitz ends on October 18, so make sure you get your orders in before the blitz ends!

Terry and I were in the basement last night, as the boys were playing Super Mario Galaxy in the living room . . . so while Terry was watching college football . . . it was an opportunity for me to make a card, of course! :o) Here's the Halloween card I made . . . Wicked Cool is one of my new found favorite stamp sets. I know it's just for Halloween . . . but it's a good one! I used the Wicked Fun DSP (2" of it), on the bottom of the card too!

We had our annual Cub Scout Hayride (here's the boys, with Caleb - Nathan's 'lil BFF) . . . which was just SO much fun! About the only time we have "smores" is at the hayride . . . man, those are tasty! Today, we're going to the Renaissance Festival! What a fun packed weekend, huh? Alot of scrapbooking possibilities too!

I'm going to have alot of opportunities, for scrapbooking, at the end of next month . . . I'm going to have to have my tonsils out on November 19th! It's going to be SO quiet around here, since I won't be able to talk for awhile. I think Terry & the boys are looking forward to that part! :o)

Okay . . . off to the Renaissance Festival we go . . . thanks for stopping by my craft room!

October Workshop

This past weekend, there were a bunch of us gals that got together for a weekend of cropping and fun! Some of us went to the CK Convention on Friday . . . and some went on Saturday, but we all met up for the Manager's Reception! Here are the gals (l-r): Jenny, me, Vicki, Jeri (SU! Upline), Theresa (sister), Elaine (celebrated her 29th birthday), Cara, Sharon, Sherry (SU! Sideline), DeAnn (SU! Sideline), and Laura. It was so much fun being around such creative women for a whole weekend!

I swear we all played so many practical jokes on each other all weekend . . . I laughed so hard that at times I was in tears! You gals are so creative and alot fun! Thank you for a wonderful weekend!

I'm also very lucky and thankful to married to a wonderful husband, of 9 years this Wednesday, that allows me to have these wonderful (and much needed) times with these gals. Thank you Terry!

I am having the October workshop, this Friday at 6:30P. Here's a picture of your projects! Isn't that 'lil bunny just the cutest?

Please RSVP, if your coming to the workshop. Thank you for stopping by my craft room!

Stampin' Up! Clearance Rack

As you know, the Clearance Rack has been operational for over a year now, and apparently the SU! customers are finding it a great place to discover discontinued Stampin' Up! merchandise for fantastic prices. Stampin' Up! has added over two hundred more discontinued items--some at up to 80% off--to help make room in the Distribution Center for new Stampin' Up! products!! WAHOO!

Take a peak and let me know if there's anything I can help you with! Thanks for stopping by my (clearance) craft room!

Waterfall Birthday Card

I'd seen this the instructional video of this card on Dawn Griffith's blog and new I immediately had to make it!

The first one (okay . . . two) I made, were the Halloween ones similar to the one Dawn makes in the video, for the boy's teachers . . . but I need a birthday card, for a girlfriend's birthday this week . . . so . . . I went downstairs and played?! Here's what I came up with.
The background is one of the new DSPs, Greenhouse Gala, isn't it cute paper?! Kinda reminds me to something retro . . . but not as blah as than the 'ole 70's colors. :o)

Once you pull down on the tab, you see each of the little tabs individually . . . as they "waterfall" . . . I stamped "if you are what you eat, eat something cute" on the bottom.

A bunch of us gals are going to the Creating Keepsakes Convention next weekend and stay at Embassy Suites . . . oh my, I can't wait! Theresa, Cara, Jenny, and I are staying all together . . . a whole weekend of crafting with girlfriends . . . what could be better?!?! I'll be sure to take lots of pictures!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend . . . thanks for stopping by my craftroom!
