Message Board

I just love Sundays and I love it when my kids wake up and we have breakfast together. It is one of the simple joys of sitting around the table talking and catching up. They are 17 and 20 my oldest is married and moved away he's 28. Although he works 3rd shift and manages to stop some Sunday mornings. I sometimes go all out but this morning I kept it simple. The focus is on the menu board which clearly states the cost for breakfast. Making this message board is so easy and can be made lots of ways for teens or in your own kitchen. I used a 8 x 10 frame some designer paper you can get as fancy as you would like. Using a DRY marker to write your messages. Have fun creating these really fun frames.

Auction spring clean

Ok demo's, you all know we have so much stuff we could fill a building. With the new catalog coming out I decided it is time to clean out my space. I am downsizing and only keeping what I absolutely must. So after much research on line on marketing ideas I found one that just might work. I have decided to take all my OLDER and gently used sets in wood that I can part with and price them out, for example some are marked 100.00. $100.00 you say? Well here is the game and how it works. I am having a LEAVE YOUR WALLET AT HOME PARTY during the new launch. I will have tables of stamps for my guest to view. Their invitation will clearly state this is a leave your wallet at home party. They can earn auction dollars by doing the following, joining a club, hosting a workshop, signing up for a class, bringing in an order, etc. I will give them 100-500 dollars for each item they do. When they check in at the party they will get a bidding paddle made from the BIG SHOT. I am even auctioning off a class for 4. So maybe if you do a little spring cleaning and downsize it can give you plenty of business in the next few months! Good luck. Be back on Monday! Have a great weekend. Brenda

Spreading Sunshine

This card reminds me of a summer day. It was simple but my customers loved learning how to make the leaves from the oval punch folding them and running them through a crimper. They loved punching out the blossoms and dry embossing with the vintage folder for texture. I used the 5 petal punch for the center and a GREAT Summer Smooche fabric button for the center. The rick rack was cut from our trimmings die cut. I also used Flower Garden paper, thanks to my great friend Mary P (You know who you are). The greeting was from the Occaions Mini. Thanks for stopping Brenda

Smooches in Mambo

Here is a great card for a workshop! Simple but elegant and you use so many products its a great up sell card! Base card is Melon Mambo I cut a strip of Summer Smooches 1 x 4. Show how to use the square punch on an angle to cut the banner. Then use your big Shot and the Vintage wall paper to dry emboss your card. use the Big Shot again to cut the framelits. One in Lucky Limeade and One in Whisper White. I used the Just believe Stamp set which led to me showing how to use a Stamp-a-ma-jig. Then I used the Boho Blossom Punch for the larger flower out of Rich Razzleberry, and the petal punch from the Itty Bitty trio. Added our Rhinestone Bling to the flowers and the top and bottom of the framelit! Wow that was an amazing up sell! First of all we can't live with out the BIG SHOT or PUNCHES. Hope you enjoyed this post be back later in the week. Thanks for stopping.  Brenda
