You only have a few more days left to purchase out of the current catalog (May 31st), you can go to my Online store to place your order. The new catalog starts Friday, June 1st at noon. Contact me if you would like a catalog. I will also have catalogs at my Open House on Sunday, June 10th, 1-4pm. Please RSVP by: 6-8-12. I will have food, drink, LOTS of prizes and a couple make n takes. Spend $50 and pick a retired stamp set for FREE! No Limit! This is a FREE event. I will also be giving away most of my samples. Out with the old, in with the new!
Thinking about joining Stampin' Up!? Now is a GREAT time. Stampin' Up! has lowered the starter kit to $99 and you can customize it to ANYTHING you want in the current catalog, up to $125. Plus you will also receive the business forms you will need to get you started. I am sweetening the pot a bit more; Join between now and May 31st and receive a Dauber case with a package of sponge Daubers and a Stampin' Up! Tote Bag. I've attached a photo. I would LOVE to have you join my team, Cincraft Stampers. Who wouldn't love to get ALL your stampin' stuff at a 20% discount, have access to the BEST website ever, & get to pre-order anytime we have a new catalog (you would get to see all the new products before everyone else does)? I forgot to mention, the magazine we receive each month, with lots of ideas, business tips and soooooo much more! Go to my website and click "Join Now" in the upper right hand corner.
|This is the inside of the dauber case. Each section is labeled. No more washing your daubers because you can't remember what color you used last. Now each color has its own spot.|
Remember how we used to do these notepad toppers with the Top Note Die? Well now you can use the Labels Collections Framelits dies to do the same thing. This project was one of the things we did in my Big Shot Class this month. Once I started making these, I couldn't stop......

Thanks again to Patty Bennett for video on how to make these, and also to Heidi for the wrenches punch art. Patty & Heidi are so clever!
(Sorry this photo is so bad.......)

I've been on a mission for the past month or so to try and use up my Designer Series Paper. I have so much and pretty soon I won't be able to use it in my classes. Plus I just realized that I didn't share the cards from my first Fabulous Folds class last month. So I will be sharing one card for the next 10 days. I have to say that my friends/customers LOVED them all, which makes me so happy! Now, I did not design the actual fold, but I did put my spin on what dsp & stamps I used. So many thanks to all who helped me and didn't even know it. I will add their link, (if I can find it.......).
|First up is the 4-Corner Fold Up Card. I originally saw this card on Dawn Griffith's blog. Then I saw it on Ellen Smallwood's blog, but I can't find her original her email or blog. Ellen, contact me if you see this post and I will add your link.|
Here is what I used to make this card:
Flower Fest Stamp & On Your Birthday(both retiring 5-31-12)

Today is my husband's birthday. Although he tells me he has a birth- MONTH! His only request, fried chicken, really, we don't do fried, please, I don't know......thats how the conversation started. So I am making him fried chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy and biscuits. Cheese cake for dessert. He doesn't know it yet, though. Surprise! We are celebrating Mother's Day and his birthday on Sunday. He always reminds me that he was born on Mother's day......
Ok, now on to some sneak peaks from the NEW CATALOG! New dsp, new stamps & new framelits, Yipeee!!!! I made a card & label for his peanut brittle using all new products.
Happy Birthday Dave! I love you!
|My husband LOVES Peanut Brittle, so I made a label using the Letter It stamps using the new In Color, Midnight Muse and the same die as above, Apothecary Accents.|

Here are some of the Thank You's I sent out last week. I am on a mission to use up ALL of my dsp. And these cards use an 8 1/2" x 11" piece of dsp. Plus they are so darn fun to make. You can view a video made by my upline, Patty Bennett to get the directions.
|Here I used the Attic Boutique dsp from the Occasions Mini Catalog. I don't know why I hadn't used this dsp. So pretty!|
|Here is the front with one pocket.|
|And here is the inside. Pretty clever isn't it? Wish I thought of it.......|

My Upline, Patty Bennett has started a technique challenge for her Luv 2 Stamp Group. This month the technique is Emboss Resist. This is such a fun technique. Stamp your image in white Craft Ink, add embossing powder, heat, and color with a sponge, wipe off excess ink with a paper towel.
Now is the perfect time to become a Stampin' Up! demo. Stampin' Up! has lowered the Starter Kit to $99, yes, $99. Plus you can customize your kit to whatever you want as long as its in a current catalog. You will receive $125 worth of product and a business kit worth $65, for $99. What are you waiting for?
