Here is a list of some of the latest things happenin' with SU!

  1. We now accept credit cards for orders! Yeah baby...this is something that seemed to bite me in the butt when I first started. People wanted to pay with CC and I had to tell them no. :o( But now we can!
  2. SU and Scotch Brand have created a venture! Some of the Scotch Brand items will have featured SU projects on them which directs people to the SU website and hopefully to a demo.
  3. We now carry Decor Elements, a self-adhesive die cut that you put on your walls, mirrors, windows, etc. to "doll" up that area!
  4. ALL new stamp sets will be DIE CUT! No more trimming before mounting (the old sets will need to be trimmed yet.)
  5. Get the discontinued accessories list here....discounted accessories list here (25% off selected accessories)...and the retiring stamp set list here.
  6. JUST ANNOUNCED....customers will be able to order on line through the customer website/demonstrator websites! WOW!

This months Five for $5 class

We used the Inspiration Sheet for "Sketch an Event" for the basis of the cards this month. The stamp set we actually used was "Time Well Spent" and the colors we used were Cool Caribbean, Marigold Morning, Cranberry Crisp, Wild Wasibi and Whisper White. We also used silver brads in place of the eyelets. Enjoy!

If you would like to join us for Five for $5 we meet in my home the second Friday of every month at 7 pm. If you would like to do the cards but can't come, RSVP one week in advance, send me a check and I will email you a set with typed directions for each card!

P.S. The camera didn't take very good pictures! :o( They are rather dull looking next to real life! :o)

Where has time gone?

Wow! It's been a long time! I can't believe how fast the summer is going. We have been busy.

Last week (June 23-26) was VBS at the church. I went to work an hour earlier every day to be able to get to the church before 5 pm. I was in charge of putting together a nightly slide show of pictures taken by the two main characters of the "pirates". The theme was "The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything" from the Veggie Tales. James was in charge of the stage design and room designs. He worked every Saturday for eight weeks and every day of VBS to change out the rooms everyday.

Friday night we had an adult get together at a church member's home for soup and salad. The girls sat in the "den" and sang karoke, the guys sat in the living room and chatted while the young adults sat outside chatting. It was a very nice night fellowshipping with other believers.

Saturday God's Royal Hat Stampers (my official Red Hat Society group) went to Shipshewana and Middlebury for the day. Needless to say we spent the day shopping where I spent way too much money! I came home with a satisified tired feeling but happy and glowing in my spirit with the day spent with my friends.

I took vacation this week and have been TRYING to clean out my stamp room! LOL Of course, my kids have other plans! Tuesday I had to take the two middle grandchildren to the dentist then run the dad to Three Rivers. Wednesday I worked on my Bible Study for Wednesday night and then worked a little in the stamp room. Thursday we spent the day at my daughters as Mother Nature took down the electricity in our area for Wednesday evening and most of Thursday. When I came home last night I just felt overwhelmed when I walked into the stamp room and didn't do much at all. Today I spent some time on line working on websites and looking for a couple of things for my friend Georgia and my mom. Now I NEED to get off my duff and get it done!

Hopefully some time this weekend I can download some of the recent cards we have been making.

Have a happy and safe 4th of July!
