Hi Everyone! HAPPY FRIDAY! I can’t believe how FAST this week went. I am now on vacation for the next few days (until August 16th) and I am soooo looking forward to it! I plan on reading some books that have been put on hold, taking some more bike rides, playing in my garden, make some jam with all my rhubarb, stamping for fun (in other words, NOT preparing for classes! LOL) and even some scrapbooking, which has been sooooo neglected. I got my new 8×8 scrapbook album from Stampin’ Up! today and it’s awesome! I can’t wait to fill it up with my photos and memorabilia! My 8×8 scrapbook class on August 18th has been pretty popular (it’s now full) and I will be offering another 8×8 scrapbook class EVERY month, starting in September! So you can look forward to that. *wink* Today the wonderful UPS man paid me a visit, with three boxes of goodies, and I do mean goodies!
Some of the items I’d not yet seen in ‘real life’ because they’re from the new Holiday Catalogue – and I’m drooling! Stampin’ Up! just keeps coming out with the coolest stuff! I’ve got all of today’s orders ready for pick up and some will be delivered as we make our rounds in town. I know a lot of you are anxious to get your new stamps and products so that you can PLAY this weekend!
Speaking of playing, I was able to play with one of my new stamp sets from the Holiday Catalogue, the ‘Perfectly Preserved’ stamp set and it’s coordinating Cannery Set framelits! LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. This stamp set and framlits are part of the new Orchard Harvest Product Suite. The Designer Series Paper that is part of this suite is sooooo nice too!
fresh and delicious 14-piece stamp set gives you as many choices as a
roadside fruit and vegetable stand! How many can you come up with?
Also coordinates with the Small Oval Punch and the Bitty Banners Framelits
I used these new items (which you can buy as a bundle and save 15%!!!!) for my thank you cards this month:
Ahhh….you just gotta love summer.
