Double Fold Gate Card: Circle of Spring (Holiday Catalog Shares-update)

I know it's practically Fall, but the Circle Of Spring stamp set can be used all year long.  I especially am enjoying that it includes lots of useful greetings.  Secondarily, it's another great use for the Wonderful Wreath Framelits Dies

For the coloring of the wreath...

  • Stamp wreath image with Mossy Meadow ink
  • Use Blender Pen to move color around filling in the "white space"
  • Use Blushing Bride Stampin' Write Marker to color flowers
  • Use Mossy Meadow ink to color flower center

If you already own the Wonderful Wreath Framelits Dies, then you may want to add the Circle Of Spring stamp set to your wish list.

Holiday Catalog Product Shares - update

I received the Holiday Catalog Product Share merchandise last week and enlisted some helpers to cut, sort, staple, repack and mail.


Max and Sam were delighted to pitch in.  In fact, they were practically begging to help with the sorting.  Though the look on their faces may not show it, as they were concentrating very hard.  (Note:  I did a quality control check on their work and they were excellent little worker bees, only a couple of minor fixes were needed).  Great job boys!


Holiday Catalog Shares are ready! offered by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup

The shares went in the mail today.  I love the USPS pick up service!  My postal carrier is always full of smiles when she backs her truck into my driveway.  That's right - no trips to the post office for me.  In fact, she thanks me profusely.  Now that's great service!

Did you miss the first round of Holiday Catalog Shares?  Then get in on my next round.

2010 Stampin' Up! Founder's Circle: Simply Adorned Pillow Gift

Oh my - check out this Simply Beautiful, Stampin' Up! Simple Adorned pillow gift.  Not only is the packaging Simply Adorable, but I LOVE the necklace.  Right now, my friend Kelly is reading this and saying,"Really?  You don't even like jewelry, Dawn!"  If you know me well, you know that I don't wear jewelry.  But I can't resist this.  I even put my Founder's Circle Butterfly Charm (from last year) on it right away!




Isn't it beautiful?  Also - see the new bauble?  It's from the Holiday Mini Catalog - love it!!  Thank you, Stampin' Up! 

Well - tomorrow is a day of stamping.  We're off to the Founder's Circle Regional in the morning.  Then I'll do my make & takes in the afternoon, then our PJ party and swap!!

Stampin' Up! Convention: Simply Adorned Charms

Shelli Gardner, Co-Founder and CEO of Stampin' Up! took the stage today to do her creative presentation at the 2009 Stampin'  Up! convention.  This is always one of my favorite parts of a Stampin' Up! convention.  As usual, she outdid herself with NUMEROUS & STUNNING gift giving ideas!

I won't go into all of them.  However, I will share something awesome coming soon (September 1, 2009 in the Holiday Mini Catalog).  A new product line, Simply Adorned. An exclusive line of charms and chains!  Very exciting.  Great for making handmade gifts.  And with the holiday season approaching sooner than you think, you'll just have to have one for you and one for a friend!

The Charms are nickel plated and feature a beveled glass on the front and flat glass on the back.  They are a locket style charm with a hinge, allowing custom artwork to be easily inserted.  Comes in 3 sizes and 2 chain lengths, and is packaged in a gift box.

Wanna see some of the samples Shelli shared with us?  Do I have to ask?



Isn't this bird stunning?!

Guess what?  Several lucky convention goers received a charm and chain that was personally handstamped and signed by Shelli.

Here's my friend Rachel who was one of those lucky recipients!  Way to go Rachel!


BTW - isn't she a cutie?

Here's a closer views:


Shelli used the new "Charming" stamp set (coming September 1, 2009) to CREATE this work of art.  Check out the back!


Lastly - All convention goers will receive a 10% discount on one charm and chain when they become available...very soon!!

It definitely pays to attend convention.  Stampin' Up! is always throwing in all kinds of little extras.  Making it so special for those who attend!
