PUNCH HEAVEN...

Hubby and I headed to IKEA to purchase a couple more Bygel Rods for my ever-growing Stampin' Up! Punch family. But alas! The Bygel Rods are being discontinued, and all they had were a few of the 21.75" size, so I purchased 4 of them. Hubby did his installation magic, and I took the picture!  (You can see the bottom 2 rows are the 4 short ones.)  Guess I will have to quit buying punches - or - sell some of my oldies. Hummmm...

MY PUNCH HEAVEN

Punch Heaven

I bought them because I loved them.

So how can I get rid of them??  Answer me that, will you!!

SUMMER FUN...

Three of our granddaughters just visited us from out of state. While here, they also spent time with their paternal grandparents, Bruce and Barb. Barb has a Cricut Machine, and helped one of the girls (Kara) make this cute paper telephone card...

Kara's Telephone

I decided to make something similar with my

Stampin' Up! products...

Telephone

 

But with so many wonderful new products in the 2016-17 Annual Catalog, and the 2016 Holiday Catalog ready to be released, why would I choose to offer a card with five retired items??

SO... MY TELEPHONE CARD ISN'T MAKING THE CUT!

Scissors

Telephone...

I'm going to get cookin' on some new (current) cards for my

AUGUST WORKSHOPS!

August 18th and 20th

TEA TIME...

This is one of the reasons I love being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator... When it's time to invite a few friends over for a luncheon, I have everything needed to make a pretty menu and matching name tags in my craft room...

DEMONSTRATOR CARD SWAP...

Eighteen Stampin' Up! Demonstrators swapped cards today. Here's how this swap worked: We each made 18 identical cards during a designated time period of several weeks. We then exchanged cards and split them into 18 sets. I made 18 of this first card, and today I received all these other great cards in return!  I love being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator!!
