Hi Everyone! First and foremost - I want to send out a great big THANK YOU to those of you that came out for my "Last Chance/Sneak Peek BOGO Event" this weekend!!!!!  This event was a HUGE success! And everyone loved the chance to purchase retired Stampin' Up! supplies and stamp sets and for each dollar they spent they received the same amount in FREE merchandise from the new 2012-2013 Catalogue (orders will be placed on June 1st)!!!!  For those of you who wanted to come but were unable to, don't worry! You'll still have a couple of chances to get in on this exclusive deal.  I'll be holding my own workshop on June 9th (contact me if you'd like to attend) and my Annual Hostess Appreciate Dinner will both have BOGO tables set up.  If you'd like to come the hostess dinner, there's still time for you to become eligible for an invitation. Simply book a workshop or private card class with me between now and the end of June.

The winner of the door prize at this weekend's BOGO event was (drumroll please)....Edith McRae! YAY EDITH!!!! The winner was chosen with random. org, and Edith will be receiving a complete set of the new 2012-2014 In Colour markers! I know you'll enjoy using those, Edith (and so will Lisa and Charlene!).

Everyone that came out to the BOGO event this weekend also received their new catalogue AND even got a sneak peek of some new products, which they used on their make and take projects.  Here's one of the sneak peek cards everyone made (and I completely cased the idea from another demonstrator whom I can't recall - so if it's your card layout, let me know so that I can give you credit for it!).  This card uses the new 'Betsy Blossom' stamp set as well as new In Colour Markers, Card Stock, ribbon and designer series paper.  The sentiment is from the 'Word Play' stamp set.
 
 Isn't it pretty?

OK - onto today's video.  It's a quick card using "Inspired by Nature" which retires at the end of this month.  Out of all the retiring stamp sets, this is the one I'm most sad to see go.  I'll never part with this one - I LUV it!

Today I had a Big Shot class with some LOVELY ladies and we such a wonderful time stamping and playing with Big Shot. I love showing new techniques and it's so much to get together with other women for a couple of hours, crafting (and eating chocolate and having lots of laughs)! Here are a couple of the projects we made:

 More of the new 2012-2014 In Colours and yes, that thar butterfly is new too! It's from the 'Papaya Collage' stamp set.
