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!

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.

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?

Stampin'Up! Trip to Hawaii

Just got back from the Stampin'Up! incentive trip to Hawaii.  Below is one of the excursions that we took on a catamarand for some scuba diving. My son, Shawn, and my granddaughters (Olivia, Giselle, and Isabella) really had a blast with the diving---they were in a bed of sea turtles with a school of black fish zipping about them. They saw many turtles but it is illegal to touch them--but I think that was ok with most of the swimmers. After the diving we took a long sale--it was a gorgeous day...we could have just kept going and going!

Here are some pics! Enjoy!

IMG_3442 IMG_3454IMG_3450IMG_3436

Would you like to take an awesome trip too? Join my team and I'll show you how to earn one of these trips! This is the 5th incentive trip I've earned and I just earned the next trip which is a cruise to the Mediterranean. Contact me and let's chat--you could earn a trip for two!

Never too young and never too old to stamp

Had a fabulous stamping day with one of my grands and two of her friends--these young ladies are eleven and are really progressing well in their stamping abilities. A fourth friend (Kayla) was ill and couldn't make it to the event, so their second project was to create get well cards for her.

Here are the stampers--my granddaughter Olivia and her friends Skylar and Kaityn



This was their first project--a postit note holder--I think they did an awesome job!


This was an envelope decoration--which is one of my favorite things to get in the mail--I love receiving hand made cards, but a decorated envelope takes it to the next level for me.


Their last project was to make Mother's Day cards.....which I cannot show here because....they are a secret!

Do you have daughters, granddaughters, nieces, or "adopted" daughters.....schedule a stamping event for them...Call me now 410 836 8016 or email sandihartka@sandilovesstamping and schedule an event for them! Who may receive one of their creations!

Fun, Flowers, and Fab stamp sets


Saturday we had a super day (not yet Super Bowl Day) creating some awesome cards selected by the hostess for the day, They featured Choose Happiness, Corner Garden and Sheltering Trees. This weekend we also debuted an upcoming class on March 21st (Four Seasons) featuring the Sheltering Trees and we nearly sold out--I think Sheltering Trees is going to be a big hit in the Occasions mini catalog. The designs Saturday included some fussy cutting, masking and 2-step stamping. Everyone had a great time and left with 15 new cards for their stash.

Here are the stampers: Nancy Akehurst, Margie Ebensberger, Diane Flayhart, Carol, Grap, Julie Wernz (our hostess), Barbara Howe, Wendy Conlon, Haley Wernz, Stephanie Woods, Doris Tarleton, Peggy Sue Missett, Heather Wright-Burton, and Grace Browning.
