Relay for Life Sneak Peek

Every year I hold a stamping event to help raise funds for
The American Cancer Society's Relay for Life through Jeannie's Angels.
My friend Donna's mother passed away from lung cancer in 2007.
Donna started the Jeannie's Angels group to raise funds for
the Relay for Life.  I joined Donna's efforts 4 or 5 years ago and
have hosted different types of stamping events to help her raise funds.
Last night was my fundraiser — 22 ladies joined for a fun evening of stamping
Relay Group Shot
This year's event was a NEW CATALOG SNEAK PEEK.
Everyone received a new catalog for attending.
All funds received were donated to The American Cancer Society.

Cyndi was the Grand Prize Winner
Cyndi's the Winner
She won a fabulous Stampin' Up! bag that was filled with fun
stamping goodies.  Nancy was trying to get out of the picture — haha.

Everyone made four cards using lots of new stamp sets, inks, punches, etc.
Sprinkles of Life
This was one of the cards the ladies made.
This card features the Sprinkle of Life stamp set and the
coordinating Tree Builder Punch.  It also used some of the new
Neutrals Designer Paper — this year it has some silver and gold.
Very cool paper — I like the patterns.

Come back tomorrow to see more of the fun cards we made.

Bohemian Designer Paper

I've been featuring items I saw on the Hawaii Incentive Trip
that use products from the new Annual Catalog (which begins in only 5 days).
One of the new items that we were able to preorder is the
Bohemian Designer Paper.  This paper is bold and bright.
They even have a package of coordinating cardstock
(Bermuda Bay, Delightful Dijon and Rich Razzleberry).

I thought this was an adorable gift bag which uses the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit
and the Bohemian Designer Paper. 
Treat Bag 1Sweet and simple bag.
Treat Bag 2
An adorable note that pull out of the treat bag.
Treat Bag 3
Check out the back of the note card — ha—a pack of gum.
Wouldn't you love to receive this cute little treat.

They are pretty quick to whip up a bunch of them.

Market Fresh

Market Fresh is a brand new stamp set that is in the new Annual Catalog.
Are you counting down the days like I am — only 6 more days
and we can start ordering!!!!
I normal don't "go for" fruit and vegetable stamp sets — just not my thing.
But…this card may change my thoughts.
I saw this stamp set demoed on the Hawaii Incentive Trip.
Judy (sorry — don't know her last name) did a fabulous job with this stamp set.
Fresh Market 3I love this grape card.  Yes, there is coordinating designer paper too.
She did use the Windows Framelits which are on the retired list (so you better
order them quick before they are gone).
Here's another card that she did.
Fresh Market 1
Aren't these gorgeous?
Fresh Market 2
It's almost strawberry picking time — what a fun way to invite someone
to go berry picking with you.

And this was one of my very favorite items.
Fresh Market 4
This little bottle of wine is so adorable and the tag just finishes it off.
I would love to receive this little gift — how about you?
