Hello Stamping Friends,
Tomorrow starts a new sale from Stampin’ Up! Buy one Fast Fuse Adhesive and get two refills free. Fast fuse is stronger than our regular snail adhesive and the refills have 21.9 yards, about 67% more than a snail refill. Stampin’ Up! offered this sale last fall and sold out faster than anyone could imagine so they promised they would have the sale again, but it is only while supplies last and only for five days starting tomorrow, February 8, and ending February 12. So stock up now and save!
Use hostess code VJHRB73X if your order is under $150 and remember it is Sale A Bration days so every $50 order earns you a free product (and a special thank you gift from me)! Click to see the video:
Have you ever been on a hot air balloon ride? My Son In Law, Jonathan (Bud), gave Paul and I a ride for my birthday a couple of years ago and it was phenomenal! He has been a balloon pilot for Wild West Balloon Adventures in Steamboat Springs, Colorado for years.
With a balloon pilot in the family, the Lift Me Up stamp set with matching thinlits was a must have for me. It is on page 58 of the Annual Catalog; the matching Up & Away thinlits are on page 216 and have an extra-large balloon thinlit with smaller thinlits for the colors behind the main balloon so you can build your own balloon with no fussy cutting. My husband built this balloon birthday card for Jonathan casing one from Pinterest:
The birds are from the High Tide stamp set on page 140 of the Annual Catalog. The sun is from a retired set but we have a new stamp set in the Sale A Bration brochure which has the same type of sun image.
My daughter, Stacia, just announced that she and Jonathan are purchasing the Wild West Balloon Adventure Company of Steamboat Springs!! What a thrilling new chapter for them. Time for a celebration card!
I used the Amazing You free Sale A Bration stamp set shown above with the Lift Me Up stamps and Up & Away Thinlits to make a Double Z fold congratulations card for them:
I took a screen shot of one of the balloons shown on their website and then printed it on card stock to make the card personal. Julie Davison has a great video tutorial for this card at http://juliedavison.blogspot.com/search?q=Lift+Me+Up
Is going for a ride in a hot air balloon something you have dreamed of doing? Visit Steamboat Springs, Colorado, and Jonathan and Stacia will make the experience a wonderful one for you! Click on the picture to visit their website:
Don’t forget that Fast Fuse Five day sale!
SAL, Sail ALong – together you and I – for we can fly!
Hello Stamping Friends,
Next Saturday August 8th is our quarterly Card Buffet from 10 AM to 4 PM. There will be six card designs from which you may make one, two or three cards of each design at a cost of $3 per card. I will have lunch, snacks and of course a door prize drawing! RSVP to let me know if you will be attending and a guess at how many cards you would like to make. The cards are clean and simple cards so each should take about 30 minutes to make. That’s what’s up for the future!
Now for the past. At Club two weeks ago we did two special cards and played a Watermelon Box guessing game. Donna brought extra give-a-ways so we had three door prizes. Thank you, Donna! Sure wish you all could have been there. Here are pictures of the cards and a detailed pdf file you can print with all the instructions.
