Peggy's Cove, Nova Scotia

Here's to a fabulous new month - I adore autumn! I'm looking forward to exploring more of our new home province of Nova Scotia, especially now, with all the trees in their bright colours (they're breathtaking!). We also have two massive heritage apple trees in our back yard that are over 150 years old; the previous owner's Great-Grandfather brought the apple seeds with him when he immigrated from Scotland. So my hubby and I have been filling buckets daily and now we'll be busy peeling and coring to make Apple Butter and other delicious concoctions with them (which will be a great head start on my Christmas gifts!).

Enjoy the day and HAPPY STAMPING!

Canadian Fall Conference


Hi Friends! Stampin' Up! Canada held one of their first ever Canadian Fall Conferences in Truro, Nova Scotia this past weekend.  It was so nice to get together with everyone and create some cute projects (with our free stamp sets!!) and be inspired during our business session. I also made some new friends and I was thrilled that there was even time to enjoy a nice dinner with some members from my "Serene Stampers" group! Here are some photos from the event:

I am so grateful to Dale Hampshire, our manager with Stampin' Up! Canada, for making these Conferences happen and bringing them to provinces all across the country!!!

Friday night "Product Playground" where we stamped projects using the "Four Feathers" stamp set that was given to all attendees!

Saturday's projects featured " Freaky Friends", another free stamp set we received.  We made fun gift boxes, tags and a card.

Yours truly, taking a little break in between sessions.

Some of my "Serene Stampers" group from New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.  I am so glad we were able to hang out and visit over a delicious meal together; I love them all to bits and pieces.  I'm such a sap - I was all teary when it was time to hug and say good bye.  I've said it once, I'll say it a million times: the relationships that come out of our Stampin' Up! businesses is the best blessing of all!
Here is a sample of one of the projects we made this weekend:

Isn't that just the cutest little treat box? Love it! The "Trick or Treat" sentiment is from the "Good Greetings" stamp set that you can get for FREE until October 31st!!! Click here to find out how.

Wondrous Wreath Thank You


Hi Friends! Today's card is a thank you card that I recently stamped for a customer who placed an online order.  I really appreciate those of you who shop through my store and I love stamping cards to show my gratitude.  Remember to click "Demonstrator can contact me" before you submit your order though, otherwise I have no contact info and therefore I can't send you a thank card (or email you the free PDF and video links for this month's projects!).

This card was actually the first card I've made with new Wondrous Wreath bundle - these are really fun stamps and framelits to play with!  I've added the list of supplies below and if you haven't yet seen how these stamps and framelits work together check out this video from Stampin' Up!:

Flip or swing card, what you say?

 Hello Passport Pals,
   Frenchie here to share a fun card that I learn from my friend Barb. Love the way this card swing or should we say flip. What do you think we should call this card swing or flip? I was calling it Barb flip card and many say it is a swing card but either way it is a fun card. I did a video that you can view HERE on how to make this flip card using the deco labels framelites. For this card  I use 2 stamp sets For All Thing and Truly Grateful perfect for Thanksgiving just around the corner. Color of card stock are Cajun Craze and Very Vanilla, ink Early Espresso, Sahara Sand, Mossy Meadow and Hello Honey. When I stamp the wood grain background I mask the center so I would stay clean so I can stamp the center with different stamps. well my pals this is it for my share but don't forget to CLICK HERE to view Tina lovely creation.

Founder's Circle and a Sneak Peek!



Hi Friends!  I arrived home yesterday from the Founder's Circle Retreat in St. George, Utah.  What an amazing time I had! I am soooo glad I went - I almost didn't.  With everything that has been going on (hubby's surgery, our dog covered in quills from a porcupine, etc) I thought I'd be staying home this year.  But the day before I was due to fly out I decided I would go so I got busy cutting card stock for my swaps and hit the road to catch my flight.  Unfortunately, I forgot my Designer Series Paper and other supplies I needed to finish my swaps, so I ended up improvising.  If not for my friends helping me assemble them, they wouldn't have gotten done at all.  But it was so nice to visit with one another while we crafted away...

Here are some other photos that I thought I'd share with you today:

The lovely Bonnie Thurber and I pose for a selfie!

Christmas Project Life samples on display

Love these new Project Life kits, which will be available next month
Top Canadian Demonstrators 2014

Here I am playing with the rubber bits from our manufacturing plant that have been recycled at the local playground!

The lovely park and playground that Stampin' Up! built!

Tuacahn Amphitheater is absolutely breathtaking!

The play was based on my favourite movie, Wizard of Oz and the sets and acting were unbelievable - there were even live horses and I just wanted to bring Toto home with me, he was so cute! You can view a clip of the musical by clicking HERE.

Getting ready to watch the show, me, Candy Michael, Pam Morgan and Julie Brancart - I LOVE these ladies!
Another selfie, this time of me and my friend Brandy Cox.  Brandy and I first met at last year's Founder's Circle Retreat and she's an absolute doll and I can't wait for us to get together again.

One of our pillow gifts was an adorable pillow to go along with the "Home for the Holidays" theme - cute tag too!

We came home from Founder's Circle with a TON of gifts and LOTS of Stampin' Up! products!

Speaking of product, here's a Sneak Peek of a new stamp set!!!

Some cute tags on display!

Even the water station was so pretty with the flowers and fruit (the strawberry water was delish!)

The weather was hot and glorious and even better enjoyed in the pool with your friends! In this photos are Rose Marie Coleman, me, Alison Solven, Evelyn Wood,  Kay Smith, Candy Michael, Genevieve Ko and Maggie Patterson.

At Founders Circle we're put in teams and this was our "Snow Flake" team working on ornaments for Christmas Trees that will be auctioned off at Christmas for the Children's Primary Hospital in Salt Lake City.  Not only was this a super fun way to cap off our retreat it was great to be involved with such a worthwhile service project!

The ornaments our team made were stars with buttons (on both sides) - a little tricky to get them all placed properly but really fun to make.
 
Don't they look pretty hanging from the tree?!

Our "Snow Flakes" team: Jeanette Swain, Shelly Godby, Dawn Olchefske, Connie Heisey, Jo Golden, Moi and Barb Mullikin - such a great group of gals! We had a ton of fun together.
Once the trees were fully decorated it was time for our last dinner together and the Special Events group at Stampin' Up! outdid themselves with our tables!
So as you can tell, The Founder's Circle Retreat is pretty extraordinary and I am so grateful for Stampin' Up! and to have a business that is rewarded with trips like this.  THANK YOU to all my customers and my entire "Serene Stampers" group of demonstrators - without you this dream wouldn't have come true for me.  I love you and I appreciate you - you are all just the best and I am truly blessed.

HAPPY STAMPING!
