UStamp Christmas Blocks

I am so excited to share with you my latest design for UStamp with Dawn and Friends.....I love the holidays!!!!!!  I have wanted to use the decor blocks and had seen lots of ideas on how to use them.  My idea was to use them to display cards or photos....especially during the holidays.  I love the new Christmas DSP in the IB&C called "Letters to Santa". The paper is great for paper piecing.....cutting out images from the paper for highlighting!!!!

I also used the new stamp set "Merry and Type".  I love the hanging ornaments stamp and embossing the stamp in white embossing powder really made the image stand out on the block.  To display the cards/photos I used various sizes of binder clips and added dsp to them. 

The card was again used with the letters to santa dsp and the ornament image from the merry and type stamp set was embossed with white embossing powder and cut out and popped up with dimensionals.  If you would like to get the instructions on my project and see all the other great designer projects please go onto UStamp with Dawn and Friends to subscribe.  You won't be disappointed!!!!!!

New Hostess Program and Designer Paper Series Promotion!!!!

With the unveiling of the new Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalog comes the unveiling of the new hostess benefits.  I really like how they changed things up.  In the past, hostesses had to have a certain amount of product sold to receive free stamp sets...they were picked from levels depending on the amount of the workshop or class.  hostess benefits I know whenever I would place my orders I would have to pick from the same level over and over again.  I now have an excess of the same stamp sets.....
With the new program, depending on the sales of the workshop, the hostess now can earn dollars that can go toward the hostess stamp sets or can be spent in the catalog......AWESOME!!!!!
I would encourage you to hostess a class to see how the new program is the time to start thinking about Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas...the holiday mini is out and you can go to my Stampin' UP! website to see what is new for the holidays!!!!
I love the new August promotion that SU! is offering......every year you can choose from 13 awesome Designer Paper Series....I love the new paper and for the month of August you can get a great deal on the paper.....WHEN YOU BUY 3, YOU GET 1 FREE!!!!!

I was not able to go to convention this past July but I wanted to share some of the paper they had on display....
These awesome flowers were made using the pocketful of posies designer paper series

I would love to be able to show you how to make these flowers.....schedule a class today and reap the benefits of being a hostess....
