Follow up on my birthday organizer

Ok this is the last time you will read about my birthday calendar.  I intended to post last night but we finished a little bit late:)  I am overwhelmed by your response to add your name to my birthday organizer and let me tell you, I need to start making the cards this weekend, as I do have birthday cards to send out on Monday, so it can hopefully make it on time for your early birthdays.  But I did want to share with you a few of my favorite months.  I used stamps sets that were dear to me and also that coordinated with the months.  Some we added ribbon, designer paper and other embellishments.  I guess my favorites were the simple ones.  I don't know why because normally I don't do good with simple.

March's Featured stamp set: Forever Young #122570 (w) #122572(c)

April's Featured Stamp set:  Up, Up & Away #122755(w) #122757(c)

June's Featured Stamp set:  The Open Sea #123030(w) #123032(c)

I should have posted them last night but again, we did finish a little late and I did need to recharge my batteries on my camera.  It would have been a great night to post as I did not go to bed until 1h30 am.  Why?  Because my hostess brought lots of treats and we attacked them all like children that had never eaten candy before.  Note to self, do not eat the candy!  It got me so hyper!

On a side note, I did receive your requests for the Christmas in September pdf and there are two ways for your to get my class:

Send me your birthdate

Published by under birthday calendar,Class

 

When I read my post about the birthday calendar organizer, I forgot to add an important note.  If you are part of my team of demonstrators, the cupcake cuties, or a customer of mine that purchases on line or that comes to my studio, or I have been in your home or even a customer or demonstrator that comes to my events, can you please forward me your birth date (day and month) would be great.  Then this would permit me to fill up my calendar for the year and start working on the cards to send to you.  Included will be a special offer that you won't want to miss on your birth date.  I will post tonight a few of my favorite months, for you to see, how wonderful it is.

If you don't know what I am taking about, you can read more of yesterday's post HERE.  This post follows yesterday's post.

Birthday Organizer

I am so excited to share my first of top 10 gift ideas for the holidays.  A hand made gift is a gift that comes from the heart.  I love to shower gifts to people that have touch me one way or another.  Plus, I was looking for a way to organize birthday's for people that are special to me.  I finally found a concept that is great to organize birthday's.  Seriously it was in our Stampin'up! Catalog on p.181.  It's the birthday Calendar available in english or en francais, Calendrier des anniversaires.  Of course mine is decorated with the beau chateau designer paper to match my studio.  But guests will be able to decorate it in the designer paper of their choice.  I will use 4 different stampin'write markers to register my special birth dates.  Marina mist for demonstrators on my team, Soft Suede for my customers, Early Espresso for family and pretty in pink for special people that have touch me one way or another.  So at the end of every month, I will look at the next month coming and if there are 6 birthdays during that month.  I will stamp my birthday cards and organize them to mail out.  Behind every month will be a pocket holder to place my cards awaiting for postage.

This album includes the 12 months and measures 5 1/2" x 14"


Tomorrow night a couple of guests are coming to decorate this wonderful calendar.  I still have 3 spots left so you can join us if you want.  Demonstrators are welcome too:)
Can't Make it, book your own party and let's get together to make this great holiday gift idea with your girlfriends.

Class includes:  Birthday Calendar, assorted designer paper, assorted ribbon and other embellishments.

When: September 29th at 19h30 pm

Where: Kim's studio

Creative Escape Sneak Peek Class 1

In less than one month, we will be hosting our Fall Creative Escape Retreat.  I am so excited to share with you one of my classes for our Retreat.  Here is a Sneak Peek.  It's a Wow Album.  Not because of the outside but because of the inside.  I'm not completely done but will share a little today, since my facebook buddies Tammy and Jo-Ann wanted to see it.  If you are interested in attending our retreat, we have 20 open spots.  Our retreat is sold out for guests who are spending the 2 nights but Marlayne and I have opened 20 extra spots for non-sleeping guests.  Email me if you are interested.

I am also doing the same album but with the Christmas theme, so guests who attend the retreat will have 2 options to choose from.  Fall or Holidays, it will be a difficult choice!

Here is the inside:  I still need to add my pictures and my embellishment to make it Kim's Style!

If you are attending our retreat, you will get complete details of this class via email. Have a great evening, I'm off to finish my album:)

Ice Cream Social Club

Megan has been asking me for a kids scrapbooking class for the longest time.  Today was our first class and let me tell you we had full house in the studio.  Megan did most of the cutting, punching pieces out and assembling the kits.  She wanted to take charge.  She called a few friends and had a full table of her own to teach them while I helped out at the other two tables.  She is truly inspiring and for sure a future demonstrator.  She has all the qualities:  she placed calls to invite her guests and had 7 just by herself.  That's pretty exciting.

We made a card and magnetic book mark to encourage the girls to read Stampin'up! Style, we also made a mini scrapbook album, played bingo and finished the day with ice cream.


Here are our projects.  The card was a swap from convention and I love how I could make a book mark out of it.

Here is the inside of the mini album.

Bingo stamp #120851 is a hit.  Today we used itty bitty bits to stamp on the inside.  Next month we will be using Spooky Bingo bits.


Kids from 6 to 12 came to our Ice Cream Social Club and they were all capable of making the projects.  Bingo was a hit! and they love Memento mall prizes:)

If you know a child that would love to scrapbook, email me as next month is our Halloween Ice Cream Social.  Come with your Halloween Costume, play fun games and make Halloween projects.  Details below:

Tea Time Stamping

This morning at our Tea Time Stamping Class, we created a beautiful bundle of cards.  I  have to say, I truly enjoy day time classes.  A few of my customers were asking about having a day time class and we started a few weeks ago.  I am happy to say that every Friday there will be a special am class from 9h30 to 12h00.  So if you don't like driving at night, have free mornings and feel like creating beautiful projects, Email Me to register for 1 or ALL of my Tea Time Stamping Classes.  Demonstrators are welcome too:)  Classe offerte en Français aussi.  We will be doing numerous projects.   From Christmas cards to other type of cards, scrapbooking, 3D projects…  This morning we made 4 different cards with an elegant box.  Here is one of the cards we created.

Card #1.  The others were the same colors but had different designs.


The sad part about cyber stamping is that you don't feel the softness of the Mocha Morning Specialty Designer paper. It feels like felt.  To age my cards I love to use my Color Spritzer tool #107066  for only 16.95 $ Canadian.  You only need a stampin'marker and this tool to add specs of ink to a card.

Supplies used to create my Team Time Stamping  card :

Stamp set: Artistic Etchings #118517(w), #120573(c)

Ink:  Riding Hood Red #111836, Basic Black #101179, Crumb Cake #121030, Basic Black Stampin' marker #100082

Card stock and paper:  Riding Hood Red #111348, Basic Black #121045, Crumb Cake #120953, Very Vanilla #101650, Mocha Morning Specialty Designer Paper #122366

Accessories and tools:  5/8" Basic Black Satin Ribbon #117285, Antique brads #117273, Color Spritzer Tool #107066

Have a great weekend!

Baby Thoughts

As I went to the hospital today to check on my charts, and baby kits, I visited my friend and downline Jennifer.  Mike and Jen are expected their 4 baby.  She has 3 boys at home and is expecting baby #4, and doesn't have a clue what she is expecting.  I am just praying for a healthy baby and easy labor!  9 days over due and still smiling.  I truly admire her.  Jen has triggered my baby thoughts.  No no not the ones you are thinking.  Tony would flip knowing I had baby thoughts!  What I mean is baby stamping thoughts.  I started by stamping a few cards in neutral tones since I don't know what Jen is having.  But if she is having a girl, you know I will go all out in pink and save this one for someone else:)  I am also going to create gifts for her and the baby with my stamping products and match them with my card.  Jen, I will be thinking of you tonight:)

Spice cake designer paper has an awesome color combo that I couldn't resist for this card:  Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party and Soft Suede.  If you have trouble creating great color combination then I would suggest you getting the Color Coach #120148.

Fall Beauty

Tonight, I'm hosting my scrapbook club event.  I am so excited for tonight's project.  Here I go again, using Spice Cake designer paper.  But I couldn't resist.  And Jordan's picture does remind me of spice cake.  I don't know why but it does.  Scrapbooking is a precious hobby to me because I love preserving the memories of my daughters growing up.  I am hoping to give them each a scrapbook later on.  I don't really put pressure on myself by creating scrapbook pages in a specific order.  I go with the flow, what inspires me and that makes me happy without the stress.

I love layering my card stock to add dept to a project.

Soft suede is the best color to use to age paper and to create a vintage look.

If like my scrapbooking style, you might want to join us next month for another fun night of stamping.  See schedule below.

Scrapbooking Night:
Come to this special evening monthly and preserve those precious memories by learning new techniques using different products and creating beautiful scrapbook pages.  Every month there is a different theme.  Cost is 25$ or FREE with a 38$ order.

Christmas in September

Last Day at Founder’s

It's a bitter sweet day, as this was our last day at Founder's but I do miss my family and am ready to go home.  I had a great day, again it was a free day to shop just a little and spend time with friends and then Stampin'up! took us to our surprise destination for an evening of fun.  We actually went golfing stampin'up! style.  We were challenged to guess how many stamps in a container, drive a marshmallow, stamp blind folded etc.  I had the greatest time and laughed so hard.  Imagine 130 some demonstrators on golf carts.  We had challenges on all 9 holes.  Don't you think they go all the way?  Our theme was tea party and they added golfing on the tee to match that theme!  How smart is that?

We were matched my teams, here is my teammate Joanne from The Brits. 

After Golf we headed to the club house for a delicious buffet.  Our center pieces were gorgeous, beau chateau style.

They also had trophies for our sportsmanship with the in colors markers.  It will be in display it in my studio and will remind me of this wonderful day.

When I arrived back to my room, of course there was another pillow gift awaiting for me on my bed.  This beautiful blossom box #123127.

Inside, a wonderful chain filled with baubles and crown trinkets from our Catalog to use as a key chain or to hang on a purse.  I especially loved the tea cup, it is engraved Founder's 2011.  I will need to figure where and how to use it.  Since it will remind me of memories of Founder's.  It could have been intimidating being with the top 100 in the states and top 15 in Canada.  But I made wonderful friends that I am blessed to have met and was really welcomed by so many of them.  They really made me feel at ease and I am truly grateful. 

Being part of Stampin'up! is fully rewarding.  If you would love to learn about this opportunity and be part of my team, contact me and we can set some goals.  From hobbyist to Top demonstrator in Canada, there is a place for everyone.  I would love to help you discover the benefits.  And if you are already a demonstrator, I wish for all of you to experience Founder's one day:)
