Keeping cool in the heat wave

Hi everyone, well we are certainly experiencing some hot weather this week. Given the Canadian winters, I have no problem with this. I was golfing last night with my ladies golf league in 38C humidity, and drinking lots of water. I even won the 50/50 draw so all in all, it was a good day.

At home I am staying inside in the air conditioning and doing what I love, crafting. I have a card class next week so was finishing up some of the prep work required. Below are the three cards we will be making. Each one is unique and requires different techniques which I like to demonstrate. If you have an interest in learning new techniques or would like to get together just to socialize while we make cards, please register on my blog. Next Class is Aug 14th and spots are limited.

BONUS DAYS ARE COMING

Now is the perfect time to stock up on Stampin’Up! products and build your crafting supplies. Bonus Days is coming back next week, and that means it’s almost time for you to start earning coupon codes which you can redeem in August for additional products. So how cool is that?

HERE’S HOW IT WORKS:

]For every $50 usd/$60 cad you spend between July 1–31 (before shipping and tax), you will earn a $5 usd/$6 cad Bonus Days coupon code that can be redeemed anytime between August 1–31. There is no limit to how many coupon codes you can earn.

So start making your list now so you will be all ready to order next month and earn those coupon codes. I know I will, in fact my list has already been started.

We need the tools to do the job right

Whether in the workplace or at home crafting, we cannot operate without the tools to do the job and still produce a quality product or service. In the workplace, you might use various office equipment but as a crafter, I rely on a few tools to create my cards or to make 3D paper craft items.

I use my Big Shot to emboss paper or to cut out images. Without this tool, I would be hand cutting out images which takes too much time and my time is important.

I use my envelope punch board to create envelopes in 66 various sizes. This great tool is also used to make 3D paper gift packages as well.

Another tool which is invaluable is the gift bag punch. This can be tailored to make custom gift bags so you don’t need to purchase them.

Each of these tools just take a few minutes to use but as mentioned previously, time matters and what would we do without them.

However sadly these tools won’t be for sale much longer. After June 3rd sale or while supplies last, these tools will no longer be available through Stampin’ Up!, so grab them while you can and you won’t regret it.
