FREAKY FUN FOLDS!

These are a couple of the cards we made in the Rubber Room last Saturday at the Freaky Fun Folds class.

This card uses the Avant Garden FREE Sale-a-Bration Stamp Set and the Cupcakes and Carousels Designer Series Paper. The bottom of the card opens up to reveal an awesome greeting.


My very talented team member and friend, Beth Kozik, shared this card with us at Demo Diva night this month, and I loved it so much I had to include it in my class.  This card also uses the Avant Garden FREE Sale-a-Bration Stamp Set and the Delicate Details FREE Sale-a-Bration Stamp Set. This card is on a Chocolate Chip card base and the top opens up.

This gorgeous Triple Panel Card uses the Falling In Love Designer Series Paper and the Dragonfly Dreams Thinlits (the Dazzling Diamonds Glitter Paper is so beautiful in real life)

This little beauty is made with the Succulent Garden Designers Series Paper and the coordinating Succulent Garden 3/8" Ribbon Combo Pack.

I love all of these cards and these creative new fold ideas, and I want to give you the tutorials to make all four of these wonderful cards.

With every minimum $50 order you place before midnight on February 28, 2017, I will send you the color tutorials for all four of these cards.  AND for every $50 order you place before the end of March, you get to pick one SAB item for FREE (order $100, pick two items for FREE, etc...)! What a sweet deal that is!  But wait, there's more.  When you place a minimum $50 order before the end of Sale-a-Bratoin (March 31, 2017), you will be entered into a drawing to win a FREE Big Shot!    Those are three really great reasons to place your order now!  Be sure to use hostess code:  D2JAFYYT

ORDER HERE
Call or text me:  248-909-8016 and I will be happy to help you place an order.

SPECIAL REASON!

For me one of the best things about a Stampin' Up! event is swapping.  It is so wonderful to get some new ideas and I always love getting a card.  This is a gorgeous card that was swapped at Leadership in Lansing this past weekend.  This lovely creation was made by Julie Ahrens from Elmhurst, IL.

This is one of my favorite stamp sets from the Occasions Catalog, Special reason! It can be bundled with the coordinating Stylish Stems Framelits Dies for great savings!


TIME TO SAVE THE DATE!

This past weekend was super exciting with training in Lansing, but my friend, Janet, and I are a little extra excited as we were finally able to sign the contract on the ballroom for our first weekend retreat! I am calling it a ballroom, because we are going to be having a ball all weekend long! Details will follow, but be sure to mark May 19th and 20th on your calendar. The fun starts at ten a.m. on Friday and lasts until midnight on Saturday. There will be games, make and takes, pillow gifts, optional classes, door prizes, goody bags and so much more.
