Need some cards?


I invite you all to join Sharon Armstrong's April 2014 Online Stamp Class 
April's cards!  This is a long post...read BONUS at the bottom! 

Please place your order, on-line at: www.sharonarmstrong.stampinup.net

You need to enter this code:
When ordering, it will ask if you have a "Hostess Code," that is where you enter it.  It is on the left hand side of the screen when you check out!!
Order must be placed by midnight, APRIL 10th
Supply packets for the projects will be shipped approximately April 15th

Each month you will order the stamp set we are using and any other accessory (price range will be between $20-$40 with shipping and tax.
I do all the work!  I design and do all the cutting!  You receive card kits all precut, pre-Big shotted pieces to assemble and use!  

You can join each month, skip a month etc. until my next round of club starts July 1, then you can join the club and receive Hostess goodies!

  • FREE pre-cut, pre-punched & pre-Big Shotted supplies for 6 cards each month
  • Step-by-Step project instructions emailed to you

How this Works:
  • On the 1st of each month you will be notified which stamp set and Tool or Accessory" will be the featured products that month.  Price will vary between $20-$40 (plus tax & shipping).  Each month it will be different stamp set and products
  • You will then place your order ON-LINE via my website (www.sharonarmstrong.stampinup.net) for that stamp set plus any additional products you'd like to add by the 10th of the month using a HOSTESS CODE that I provide
  • If you already have the featured products, you can order something different, your order amount just has to be at least the same as the featured products (so it will vary a bit each month)
  • You will also be notified of Stampin' Pads, Markers, Adhesives, and any other things you will need to complete the cards per instructions.  If you don't have them, you can add to your order or substitute other colors you already have.

Moving is hard

Have you ever moved?  Long distance?  It's hard!  So many things are different in another state and city than what I am used to!

Things like Internet providers, trash pickup, city utilities, etc.

I felt like I spent a week working on all that!

And this week I have been stamping and planning my projects for April!  And that is something I am comfortable with!

Moving to another state is not something I am comfortable with!  But I have to admit I am excited about my new adventure of my move, I am just ready for it to be behind me!

My husband and I have raised kids for 32 years!  We will have a chance to reconnect and explore new things in Arizona!

I just hate the process and the packing!

Have you seen my stamp studio?!!!!  That is going to be the bulk of what gets moved!  LOL!  This is what it looks like after I have been being Creative!

I have searched on Pinterest for tips on moving and the best one I found is to use Colored Duct Tape on the boxes for each room!  I LOVE THAT!!!  So I bought some pretty ones! 

I think the one for my Stamp Studio will be the one with the paint splatters!
Purple for the kitchen
Pink for my bathroom
Turquoise for ????
Checkerboard for the garage!

I have also been spending time with my grandkids and kids.  Stealing precious time now before I move away from them.

Wish me luck as I go thru the next month!

Why I haven't been posting

As many of you know my husband has been out of work since November.
Well, last week that changed! He was offered a wonderful job!
He started last Thursday! It is a permanent job with a great salary and wonderful benefits!
His new job is in Sierra Vista Arizona and I will be moving there in a few months.
There, I said it. Man! Hardest words I have spoken! I never dreamed we would ever move from Texas much less from the Dallas area!
Leaving behind my kids, grandkids, great friends but with the online age of today I know that I will be online more than ever!
There will be a packing party and everyone is invited! It will be my way of seeing as many of you before I go! LOL!!!

Here is my new home in Sierra Vista, AZ.  My husband is in LOVE!!!!  
I will be working on my new blog and getting ready to move!  As I pack up my studio I will be sharing some of my cards and 3D items with my local stamping friends.  I want to give them a good home!  Moving them might damage some and they are too pretty for that to happen!

The scenery photos you see are from our front deck and our back patio!  Absolutely GORGEOUS views!  In Texas I just don't see these!  Not in the big city anyway!

Such a great idea

So you need a card.  Wouldn't it be nice to reach for one that is handy?

That's exactly what I thought!  I held a class called Stamp O'Stack Cards and had stampers come over.

The class was $25 or FREE with an order.

They each made 12 cards, received envelopes and put them in these cute little cases!

 Here is one of the cards they made
 They rotated around to different stations like this:
 And they stamped and met new friends!


Now I know that some of you reading this can't come stamp in my studio with me.  I had a request to send them the kit in the mail.  So I did!  I can't stamp or make the cards for you but I can tell you what stamps we use and send you the box with the card pieces and envelopes!

Oooo wouldn't it be fun to do this with you and your friends?  I could send you a "class in the mail"!!!  
The possibilities are endless!
Tomorrow I will post the videos on each of the 
cards that they made!

March 21, 2014 is our next Stamp O'Stack
For more information you can check my class link here.
If you want to do it by mail let me know!
You will need to place an order prior to me 
shipping the materials! Or pay in advance.
