Good morning crafty friends! What a busy week we had! I hosted another successful Scrap Your Stash event- the next one is coming up in a couple of weeks, and then we celebrated my husbands’ birthday and Easter. We spent a day at home, a day with my father in law, and a day with my parents. What did you do for Easter? I even found some time to create an Easter layout amidst the planning and creating I’m doing to prepare for Crafturday- which is just two short weeks away. Are you coming?!
If you do plan to attend Crafturday, registration is here! The last day to reserve your spot is Friday, April 26. Its just $25, so if you’re not doing anything on May 4, consider coming out and get your craft on! Join the dark side- we’ve got food, fun and more! There will be artwork samples on display with new product, so come on out and check it out! As well, I’ll have my own supplies on hand for you to use, a small selection of product and handmade goodness to purchase, refreshments and loads of inspiration! Its going to be a relaxing, fantastic day.
Since you’re reading this, you’re in for a surprise. You get a sneak peek of the artwork I’ll have on display at Crafturday. Aren’t you lucky? 😉
Everyone that arrives at Crafturday will receive their own thank you gift, complete with a sweet 3×3 inch greeting card, a layout (with a technique demo) they are free to complete at the day crop, and other goodies. Those will be a surprise. (I actually need to figure out what those are going to be. Lets be honest, I need to get my poop in a group!)
With the exception of Feels Like Home, everything seen here is absolutely new product, and will be showcased at Crafturday on May 4. I created all these layouts using inspiration from the Seasonal 1 catalog, workshop instructions, and Pinterest. Inspiration can come from anywhere! Did you know there’s only one week left to order from SE1? Everything from it retires on April 31. May 1 Seasonal Expressions 2 goes live, and all the product in it. Not much (read everything is expiring, except 1 or 2 items). If there’s anything you missed, or don’t want to miss out on, get your orders in now. Once the new catalog goes live, the Feels Like Home artwork will be available for purchase. Comment below or message me for more details.
Did you notice the card hidden amongst the layouts above? That card, and others like it, will be part of a small card buffet that’ll be available to participate in at my Crafturday day crop. Make as many cards as you like for $2 a piece. Its totally optional; have fun with the day!
So, since May is right around the corner, here’s a sneak peek of what’s coming up next month. I’ll share more details next week (that includes The World is Yours, too).
Are you part of my Try it Out Techniques group? If not, you may want to consider joining. We explore new crafting techniques together, and starting in May we’re going to explore the Story by Stacy range. I have not ordered my workshop kit yet, so the date we’ll commence the workshop is yet to be determined. Here’s how its going to work: once a week, we’ll meet via Facebook Live to assemble the mini album together. Each person that participates will need to purchase the album kit (its $19.50) and the coordinating stamp set (which is $24.75); they’ll also need ten to fifteen 4×4 pictures of a special woman in their life- their mom, grandmother, aunt, or a male figure that filled the role of mom in their lives). Save on shipping, and add your workshop kit to my order! If you’re local to Whitecourt, I’ll deliver! Bulk order goes in April 30.
Mother’s day is quickly approaching. This would be a sweet memento to give to that special lady in your life, or a special way to pay homage to her. If you’re new to scrapbooking, this would especially be a workshop you should look in to. The Story by Stacy workshops were designed with you in mind, teaching you step by step, in its most simplified form, the art of scrapbooking. Each instalment in her collection of workshops broadens the scope just a little bit more, so eventually you’ll confidently and easily be able to create stunning and interactive scrapbooks that you can be proud of. If this sounds interesting to you, join me here.
Lastly is the new stamp of the month! (See above). The two girls and the balloons are the most popular icons in that stamp set; did you know that? All the artwork I’ve been privy to seeing all showcase the two girls. Its perfect for any pick-me-upper your gal pals need. The scallop border stamp is super adorbs, too. I can’t wait to play with it! Don’t forget, if you purchase this stamp set from me, I’ll mail three handmade cards as a thank you, absolutely free! When you place an order of $50 or more, the stamp set drops to $6. That’s a savings of over 70%! Its regularly $24.75. Place an order any time, but this stamp of the month is not available until May 1. Until then, the current stamp of the month is available (with the same fantastic deal, as well!)
Thanks for sticking with me for this long. I know this post is another novel, but I hope you found something inspirational in it! See you again soon.
