STAMP YOURSELF SILLY SUNDAY!

Stamp Yourself Silly Sunday happens on May 19th from 1-5.  Here are the deets for you:

This month there will be four awesome classes. In each class you make six cards (2 each of three different designs). All classes include cut and prepped materials for you to make your cards, including envelopes. Please note, however, that you need to provide your favorite adhesive. Each class is $25 or FREE with a minimum $30 purchase the day of class. When you sign up for all four classes, you will get a $10 off coupon to use on any purchases made during SYSS. 

CLASS ONE: SPRING HAS SPRUNG.... I will celebrate the arrival of Spring with you by making cards with flowers, butterflies and/or bees. Spring is an amazing time of year, and it deserves its very own card class celebration.

CLASS TWO: PETAL PROMENADE... This is by far one of my very favorite Designer Series Paper packs in the 2018-2019 catalog. During SYSS I am going to share some really great card ideas that showcase this amazing DSP.

CLASS THREE: LOVELY AS A TREE... This is one of the oldest (and dearest) stamp sets in the Stampin' Up! catalog, and it is retiring this year. I would be remiss if I let it retire without showing it the love it truly deserves. This is a gorgeous stamp set, and I am surely going to miss it. But on SYSS, we will love it one last time.

CLASS FOUR: FUN AND FANCY FOLDS... Time for this old dog to teach you some new tricks! It's SYSS, and I am going to get a little silly with some remarkable fun and fancy folds. I will put a little different twist on the regular card folds all of us are used to. You won't want to miss this opportunity to learn a new trick, or two.

FYI: All Rubber Room Rambler team members pay only a $5 per class supplies fee. Not a team member? I am happy to get you signed up so you can save on class fees AND enjoy a happy shopper discount on all your purchases.

Payment for classes is due with registration.
RSVP by May 15th at midnight.

CREATE WITH CHRIS LIVE

Tonight was my Create with Chris Live on FaceBook Night.  I shared a sneak peek at the Bird Ballad Suite and a couple cards.  This is one of my favorite suites in the new catalog.  I am sad some of my favorite items are retiring from the catalog, and seeing the things they are being replaced with makes me a little less sad.

This is our first Glitter & Glam Girls Blog Hop, and I am so excited you are joining us.   When you see the above logo at the bottom of my post, click on any of them to take you to the next blog on the hop.


For my card I used the wonderful Lemon Lime card stock and amazing ribbon.  My favorite embossing folder in the Occasions Catalog is this Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  It gives my card so much texture and personality.  I also used the new Butterfly Duet Punch and coordinating Butterfly Gala stamp set. When you purchase them together, you get a 10% discount.  And that great vine framelit comes from the Well Written Framelits Dies~~I love it!

TEAM UP TO CLEAN UP!

Here is the "before video". 



This week the Rubber Room will be experiencing "Team Up to Clean Up"! I am so grateful for my team, and they are always there for me! A couple weeks ago I posted some before and after pictures of the Rubber Room (a/k/a my stamping studio).

We made tremendous progress last night, and I am so excited to see what happens tonight and tomorrow also. Stay tuned for the "after" video for awesome results of "Team Up to Clean Up!" and my gorgeous remodeled Rubber Room!

SALE-A-BRATION INSPIRATION!




Today is another travel day for me, but I wanted to share a little bit of inspiration with you before we are off and running again.

Next Sunday, March 17th, from 1-5 p.m. we will be sharing lots of love for the Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration items that will not be available after March 31st.

Below are cards made with two of the stamp sets we are featuring in Stamp A Stack classes on Sunday. The Lasting Lily is one of my favorite stamp sets, and it has coordinating framelits that are available in the SAB Coordination offerings, so no more fussy cutting! The other card, made by fellow demonstrator "Pootles," features a sentiment called Part of my Story. This stamp set has the most amazing sayings. You can use it for cute cards, masculine cards, elegant cards...whatever your style or need, this stamp set has the perfect sentiment. When you pair it with some of our gorgeous Designer Series Paper, you have a combination that makes not only beautiful projects, but beautiful project that are quick and easy to design and make.

I hope you will join me Sunday, as we say so long to our favorite 2019 SAB items.
