Sorry about being absent for sooooo long. It has been one of those summers. We had a huge family reunion the beginning of August and of course lots of rain came with lots of visitors. Didn’t get too much crafting done except the huge project I made using the banner kit.. As some of you know, we lost our son in April. He loved parties and family gathering. Family is one of the most important things in our household. I was sad that he could not be there and when I started thinking, I realized we had lost 17 loved ones just on Roch’s side. Eight since 2010. (the last family reunion). I wanted to do something to commemorate them so they could be part of the party. So….. I made a banner using the banner Kit from Stampin’ Up, the rosette die, the pansy punch and some ink and ribbon. It took a while. I made 3 flowers for every banner and one rosette in which their photo lay.

Here’s a picture of the whole thing and one of our son. As you can see, it took up my living room wall!!  Got an event? This banner Kit is just fabulous!  Go simple or go crazy! Check it out in the annual catalog page 155. The rosette die is no longer available but you can make them by accordion folding strips of paper. It was just soooo much easier with the die.

Now we are back to normal. Whatever normal is LOL. The visitors are gone and we are getting ready to go to Ontario for a family event on my side – a Golf Tournament!! What fun. Kevin would have enjoyed that too.

But before we leave I have 3 workshops this week for the Launch of the new Holiday Catalog by Stampin’ up! Such great products this year!! I’ve been having a grand ol’ time playing with some of the things, that as a Demonstrator, I get to order ahead of time. Want your chance? Contact me to see how you can make extra $$ or just save on your purchases.

I can’t decide which is my favorite product, but if I were a betting person I bet you will all just love the new precision base plate!! No more waxed paper or dryer sheets. This baby does the whole job. All you have to do is take a stiff brush. (one to clean dentures works great) and all the little pieces just fall out.  This was great when I was preparing my workshop with the new ornament dies. Wowzer!!!

Check these out!! Aren’t they just gorgeous!!!!! You can view the holiday catalog online starting September 1, 2015. If you want a paper copy, just send me and email and I will tell you how you can get one. Now’s the time to stock up on that gold glitter paper for your Christmas projects. Get them while they are on sale.
