I hope you’re having a great weekend! I’ve been busy getting ready for Convention and I should have some new, fun projects to share with you soon! Plus, I think I’ve finally finished my prototype for my 3-D project for convention next month. I previewed it with my upline, Wendy, and others Saturday at a Paper Pumpkin event and it was a hit! It’s relatively easy to put together and does look cute, so I think I’m set! Now to make 12 more of those and 200 more cards and I’ll be ready to go!
Before I get started on projects, I wanted to write and let you know about TWO very important Stampin’ Up! Announcements.

On Tuesday when the links are active on Stampin’ Up!, I will repost with active links for you to click through. I am so excited about the release of the Stampin’ Blendabilities markers. As many of you know I am a free drawer as well as a papercrafter. Before starting with Stampin’ Up! I owned alcohol-based markers by another manufacturer. Needless to say, when Stampin’ Up! announced they were creating an alcohol-based marker in January at Leadership Convention, I was already hooked. Since getting the Blendabilities in the May Sneak Peek, I’ve been playing almost daily with them and incorporating them into many projects.
If you’d like to see the projects I’ve used Blendabilities in, please click on the Categories tag on the right hand side for Blendabilities. All previous posts featuring them are available there.
When the Blendabilities are released, I will be posting another blog post about them, including how to use them and some general techniques. Of course, I am available to demonstrate them to your friends and family at a demonstration event. I’ve taught three classes so far about Blendabilities, including one to 12 students at the Stampin’ Getaway. I enjoy them and enjoy showing others and I am super excited for the public release!
The second announcement is starting on July 1st and running for the month of July all Designer Series Paper (DSP) will be on sale Buy 3, Get 1 free. This is an excellent sale and basically amounts to 25% off when you buy four. The Designer Series Paper can be found on pages 186-187 of the Annual Catalog. I’ve posted images of them below from the catalog.

I can’t believe July is approaching so fast and Convention is just a short time away. I’m looking forward to the next few weeks, making cards, attending Convention and sharing great ideas and new projects with you.
If I haven’t said already, thanks so much for reading and subscribing! Have a great week ahead!
Let’s stamp the day (and night) away!
