Stampin’ Divas are saying farewell

Standard
As some of you already know, back in May, after a lot of thought and consideration I decided my time as a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator needed to come to an end.  It has been a great 4 years and I still love the company and their amazing products, but for me, right now, my head & heart just aren’t in it.

Part of my decision comes from my crafting ADD.  😉  I love to do a lot of different craft and artistic projects and during the years I was a Demonstrator I didn’t have the time to do the other crafty things in my brain.  So now it’s time for me to move on to other artistic ventures.   If you feel so inclined you can follow my new blog at http://www.anartisticbent.blogspot.com where I will be posting about my other artistic projects.

I hope you have enjoyed my posts and classes, as I have enjoyed giving them.  If you are looking for a new demonstrator, classes or some inspiration I highly recommend Deb Duval.  Please check out her website http://www.stampinup.net/esuite/home/stampingdebduval

Take care!

It has arrived!!!

Standard

I came home last night to find My Paper Pumpkin waiting for me outside my front door.  Exciting!!

This months kit is called the ‘Hey There Try It’ kit and it’s very cute and slightly masculine.  Because this is my first one I thought I would document the unwrapping.  So here you go.

This is how the box looks as you first open it.  Nicely wrapped in tissue paper.

Who cares about the tissue paper, we want to see what’s underneath!

* Clear Block D (you receive this with your first box to use throughout your subscription)
* unmounted clear ‘Hey There’ stamp set (2 stamps)
* Basic Grey Classic Stampin’ Spot ink pad
* Your package of consumable supplies

The consumable supplies come wrapped up in plastic with the instruction sheet on the front with a picture of what the kit will make.  This months kit will make 4 cards.

The consumable supplies include:

* 4 – white envelopes
* 4 – 4″ x 5 1/4″ designer printed card stock
* 4 – 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ Basic Grey card stock; scored in the middle for easy folding.
*  1 – sheet of die cut stickers
* 4 – Tempting Turquoise designer buttons

Each kit comes with the instructions which take you step by step through what is included in your kit and how to make the project shown on the front of the instruction sheet.

Ta-Da!!

This literally took me just over 5 minutes to make, which included looking for my glue dots that were hiding on me.

And Ta-Da #2! (with some changes)

As you can see you don’t have to stick with what they show you.  You can add other supplies you already have and change the card to be your own creation.  All I added here was 2 pieces of Lucky Limeade ribbon and a 3″ x 1.5″ piece of Whisper White card stock.
