New My Digital Studio Goodies!

I'm really beginning to look forward to Tuesdays. New My Digital Studio artwork comes out every Tuesday. What's really fun, is that you are likely to see My Digital Studio exclusive Designer Series Paper. When I saw this week's Sun Garden, I went goo goo ga ga!!! Isn't it bright and fun? Add it to the list! Here's a peek at this week's offerings:

To see all of the new MDS downloads, go to my website: http://jenarkfeld.stampinup.net and click on SHOP NOW in the upper right corner. From there click on Digital Designing. I just know that you'll find something that you have to have.

In the meantime, I'm busy trying to get things wrapped up for my Catalog Kick-Off Party that is this Saturday. Lots of new samples for you to eyeball and some great deals too! So, if you want to beat the heat - head on over to the Denison Municipal Utilities Bldg from 10am - 4 pm (come and go), enjoy some snacks and refreshments, I've even got Make and Takes! Hope to see you there!

*New to the 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog!

When you purchase kit, there are NO STRINGS ATTACHED. However, if you decide to embark on the wonderful opportunity that you can choose to take along with it, Stampin' Up! needs ALL KINDS of Demonstrators! What kind would you consider being?

» FRIENDS & FAMILY DEMONSTRATOR: You just want to buy all your stamping and scrapbooking supplies at a great discount and help your "friends & family" get their supplies too! Also want access to great "demonstrator only" websites and monthly idea magazine–always tons of ideas at your fingertips! No pressure to sell to others, attend events, or communicate with anyone – you just simply order when you want to.
» GIVE IT A TRY DEMONSTRATOR: You join Stampin' Up! to see what it is all about – with no long-term commitment or plan. You purchase the kit (which is a great deal all by itself,) have a couple of workshops or classes, just to see if you might like it. If you find it's not for you–you can become a "discount purchaser" or just say "good bye!"
» HOBBY DEMONSTRATOR: You like the idea if doing workshops and earning extra money, but only when it’s convenient for you. You might work a lot some months and very little, or not at all, during other months. You love to stamp and/or scrapbook and like to support your own “hobby" so that you can buy everything that you want with the money you earn!
» PART TIME DEMONSTRATOR: You see the potential to do a little work and earn a little money on a consistent basis. You want no pressure to ever do more than you want, but you want help and support from a "upline" who truly cares about you and your goals. You may have specific goals in mind–pay for preschool, college tuition, car payment, new furniture, etc…
» CAREER DEMONSTRATOR: You recognize the potential of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator and want to build a business with long-term career goals. You want to pursue management and want to move up the career ladder. You love attending Stampin’ Up! events and building relationships with other demonstrators and customers. You intend to work at your business in a consistent and outgoing manner.

Alrighty...I'm gonna throw this out there right off the bat....this is NOT my best creation. I do not love this card. Heck, I don't even know that I can say that I like this card! But, I've got to show you all SOMETHING instead of being stagnant over here - right??? I just need to get my cards all rounded up and get the photographed and edited for your viewing pleasure! And, with that being said, I don't want to show you EVERYTHING! I want to save some of my master creations for my Catty Kick-Off Party (see post below).

Anyway....this card shows you something fun you can do with that fancy new Lace Ribbon Border punch - cut that puppy in half and use just a smidgen of it. It's like having your little lace slip flirting out from under your skirt! A little sexy, a little, well, flirty! Kinda like the paper on this card - Flirtatious!

Well, that's all I've got. Need to go get the other two kiddos out of bed and then we are going on a road trip for the morning. I've got to deliver orders in three different towns today. I'm guessing I'll put 100 miles on the ol' van this morning...I'm also guessing that the three kiddos couped up in the van will cause some frustrations on my end. Just as well pack the kids music and plan on singing for about two hours.....joys! The wheels on the bus go round. and. round......

2011 New Catalog Kick-Off Party

So, today, I mailed out over 100 invitations to those on my mailing list to my New Catty Kick-Off party. If you aren't on my mailing list... no worries. I would never turn you away. You can find the details on the flyer below (click to enlarge). I have a ton of really cool things that I've been working on for giveaways, displays, etc. You won't want to miss out! We'll have so much fun!!!

I also included an invite to my upcoming Christmas in July. I've got two brand new Christmas Stamp Sets that we'll be using. This is a great class - what's not to like - new stamps, new paper, new designs!!! Ahhh....it is heaven.

So, go ahead, RSVP for both of these events with me!

Hi all.....Happy 4th of July!!! This isn't quite a 4th of July appropriate card...but oh well. I was meaning to post this earlier thru the weekend, but as I type this, we are camping, and my internet connection hasn't been the best. I am just thankful for a bit of a connection...it keeps me a bit in touch with the outside world.

We've actually had quite a busy weekend. Family picnic, fireworks, family reunion, etc. It's all been great fun. Yesterday afternoon and evening it was just nice to sit by the campfire and RELAX!!! Today we've got a parade and other festivities to do and then probably packing up the camper (my least fave job) and heading home in the morn. Then it's back to reality.

So, for today, my card. Umm....gotta say these new Delicate Doily stamps and I have been having an absolute blast! They work wonderful with embossing powder! Here I used black ep and even embossed the sentiment, which is now retired - sorry! And the black on the new Calypso Coral is AWESOME. This is such a simple card! I LOVE it!

Well, that's it for today folks....best get in gear for parade watching!!!
