#imbringingbirthdaysback translated is I'm bringing birthdays back! Have you noticed that lots of people only remember your birthday when they  get a notice on Facebook that it's your birthday--and by that time it's too late to mail you a card--so they just cop out with a HBD on your wall? When it's my birthday I love reaching in that mailbox and pulling out a real actual paper card! I'm especially thrilled with it's handmade!

Someone remembered that it was my day, and someone cared enough to pop it in the mail so I'd have a smile in my mail that day (I don't care if it's actually on the day--it can be close and I'm fine with that LOL).

So I've begun Sandi's Stampers Birthday Club---it has some rewards for you but the greatest reward is for those you reap the benefits of getting a birthday card in the mail from you! But they won't get it unless you think about it and get one in the mail.

We're beginning the club April 1st--just agree to mail 4 birthday cards each month and you'll receive a birthday gift from me in your birthday month. Additionally, every quarter you'll have your name in a drawing for a free pack of cardstock and a pack of envelopes! How easy is that--and, at least 4 other people will have a smile on their day.

It's not too late to  start--just call 410 836 8016 or email [email protected] your name to the registry (you'll get updated lists of the registry when others join). You don't have to send cards to people on the registry--they can be to your family, friends, co-workers--anyone--and if you really don't have someone--let me know and I'll have a solution for you!

Also, once per quarter we'll have a Birthday Express--make 12 cards (4 designs, 3 of each)--enough to fulfill your quarterly quota. It's a deal too-12 cards for $20....this is not a's just an option to get those cards ready--the cards are cute, simple and quick....first Express is April 2nd, 1PM. Make your reservation now--410 836 8016 or email [email protected]. (Check out the pics of the cards we'll be making). Join the fun now!

Have you been looking through your new catalog? If you don't have one, see info below to get your free copy so you too can see what al the excitement is about!

Today we're going to look at more pics of the samples with new products:

You can see the results of having fun with the new Gift Bag Punch Board--it's the newest Punch Board in our catalog (we have the Envelope Board and the Gift Box Board too). We're going to have a class to learn to use this board and you will create 6 bags to take home--that way you will know how to use it (if you are like me and don't read directions extremely well) If you are interested in the class it is on August 2nd--contact me to register!

Below is the Bohemian Designer Paper--if you enjoy Blackberry Bliss--this is for you!
There is a stamp set that coordinates with the paper which will be awesome to create cards or scrap pages that are "put together". By the way, Stampin'Up! is doing something really fun this year with the Deesigner papers--they have packaged 3 coordinating colors of cardstock to match the Designer paper--it's right there beside the designer paper so there's no confusion which is the coordinating pack.  In the foreground are 2 sample cards created with the I Think You Are Greaet stamp set--lot's of potential there.

6-2-15 samples9


In the foreground is the new 6 X 6 stack of Designer paper called  Cherry on Top. There are a couple of cards using the paper and I think You're Great stamps.

6-2-15 samples10

And, in this pic are the New In Colors: Delightful Dijon, Tip Tip Taupe, Mint Macaron (no this is not misspelled--it is the French spelling of Mint Macaroon---you can call it by either name), Cucumber Crush and Watermelon Wonder.

6-2-15 samples 11

These are the snack packs that we munched on while perusing the new pages. The stripes on the front of the Fry Box are done with the It's All About Sugar set....aren't they cute?
