Merry Patterns Stamp Set - FREE!

I am totally obsessed with the Merry Patterns stamp set right now.  It is a special stamp set that you can only get free from now through the end of October by either placing a qualifying order ($300) or by hosting a qualifying party ($300 total). 

Here's a couple of cards I've made using it.

And also the tag on the bag from the Holiday Retreat that I posted yesterday was made using this set.  It's so fun to use because it has outline images and then different solid images that you stamp inside the outlined ones to color it in with no coloring!  And, since it's a photopoymer stamp set, you can easily match up the images!

Stamped with Joy Holiday Retreat Highlights

I'm about a week late getting this posted, but I wanted to share all of the fun we had a week ago at my Stamped with Joy Holiday Retreat!

I had 17 awesome stampers here and we had such a great time!  We began the retreat with a stamp-a-stack on Friday night, where they each made 12 different cards, all featuring products from the Holiday Catalog.

When they arrived on Friday evening, they each received a bag filled with supply packets for the weekend.

Also, at each place they had a fun "swag bag" filled with lots of new accessories from the Holiday Catalog, along with a cute little treat box filled with chocolate.  What's a stamping retreat without chocolate, right??

I realized after the event, that I never took a good picture of the swag bag, but you can see them in the back of this photo.

This little box is made with the Clear Tiny Treat Boxes and decorated with the new Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper.  The leaves were cut out using the Seasonal Layers Framelits from the Annual Catalog.  The "Enjoy" is from the Tags & Trimmings stamp set from the Holiday Catalog. 

On Saturday morning when they arrived, they received another little treat box.  This one had a Little Debbie pumpkin frosted brownie in it.  Yum!

We spent the whole day together on Saturday making 6 different 3D holiday projects, with a break for lunch, catered by Cowboy Chicken.

I can't take credit for all of these project ideas.  I am very often inspired by other demonstrator's projects.  I have to give a shout out to my friend,  Mary Fish of stampinpretty.com for the The Mini Pizza box with mini note cards  idea.  I didn't even change it much because I loved it so much.  Thanks Mary!  And for the beautiful star home decor piece, I wish I could give a shout out by name to the demonstrator who I copied it from, but I have searched and searched to find her name but can't find it now, but I saw it on a demonstrator facebook group.  Thank you!!

Well, this post is awfully long, so it's time to quit, but I do want to say a huge THANKS to everyone who attended the retreat!  Such a fun weekend with my stamping friends!

Holiday Catalog is Here!

 

I absolutely love this time of year!  Time to start thinking about the approaching holidays and the start of the  Holiday Catalog!  And, it's an AWESOME one this year!  (well.... I say that every year - but it really is!) 

There are so many things I love in this new catalog, but I have to say the first product that jumped out at me was this Hearts Come Home Bundle.  My favorite part - the cute little edgelit with the church.

Here's a card I created using this bundle.   The attendees at my Holiday Catalog Retreat will get to make this card as part of their Friday evening stamp-a-stack.  And, by the way, it's not too late to register.  Today is the deadline!
