Cute Fruit Class July 2020 - Sneak Peek and Details

Hi friends!  Here is a sneak peek of my Cute Fruit July class.  This is my favorite new set, check it out in the Beginner Brochure on pg. 7.  I just love the happy fruit with smiley faces. 

20200718 Cute Fruit sneak peek

You will be making 12 cards (3 each of 4 designs).  Your kit will include envelopes, paper, embellishments and dimensionals to make the cards.  I will be modifying the format of my classes to “stamp and go”.  Here is how it will work:

  • Sign up for a time slot to stamp (up to 4 people each)
  • Come to my house to stamp your images, pick up your kit, and pay for class. Please wear a mask.
  • Finish your cards at home. You will need your own adhesive/glue.

The class fee is $25.  You can also choose add-ons at a special price (I will order them for you):

  • A for $15: #153301 Cute Fruit stamp set ($18 value after shipping and GET)
  • B for $31: #154957 2020-2022 In Color Classic Stampin’ Pad Bundle ($39 value after shipping and GET)
  • Select both add-ons and get a Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad FREE ($7 value after shipping and GET)

Here are the time slots available, up to 4 people each.  You will be able to finish stamping within a half hour--the 15 minute buffer is for me to clean and reset.

  • Saturday, July 18th – 9 am, 9:45 am, 10:30 am, 11:15 am, 12:00 pm, 12:45 pm, 1:30 pm, 2:15 pm
  • Sunday, July 19th – 9 am, 9:45 am, 10:30 am, 11:15 am, 12:00 pm, 12:45 pm, 1:30 pm, 2:15 pm

Please email me to reserve your spot to stamp and specify if you would like any of the add-ons (A, B or both).  Note: For the add-ons, please notify me by July 9th  so that your items will arrive in time for class.  Looking forward to Cute Fruit “stamp and go”!

Thank you.

Cute Fruit Note Cards

My new favorite set is Cute Fruit--the name just says it all!  It has these great smiley faces that I will be using on many of my cards.  It is in the Beginner's Brochure on page 7 (below).  Clicking on the brochure image on the right side of this page to see the full brochure.

The new 2020-2021 Annual Stampin' Up! Catalog is here!



I miss seeing all of you!  Instead of having my usual new catalog open house event, I’m changing it into a drive and pick-up format.  On the weekend of June 13th and 14th between the hours of 9 am and 2 pm you can drive up to my house and pick-up your new catalog packet (free).  It will include a “take and make”.  This is a socially distanced version of the “make and take” 😊  Please let me know the date and approximate time you will do your pick-up, this will help with traffic control. 

PLUS, you can also purchase retired products by making your selections in advance so that I can package your items with your catalog and let you know your total.  Here is how it will work:

  1. Review the order form in Excel ( Download 20200612 Retired products list Excel) that lists all of the retired products I have available. Check off what you would like and email it back to me by June 12th.  Remember, the sooner you return it the better as it is first come, first served!
  2. If you are unable to open the Excel file, then open this PDF file ( Download 20200612 Retired products list).  View the list and then email me with the numbers you would like (see the blue number in the last column, numbered from 1-97 and newly added items 98-218).
  3. I will process the retired orders in the order that I receive them.
  4. I will notify you of your total and if there were any items no longer available.
  5. Bring your payment with you to the pick-up and we will do a contact-free exchange. Please pay in cash (exact change please) or check.

AND I will be having a drawing for 2 special product bundles (* items were exclusive to the mini catalog or SAB and are now retired):

  • Painted Poppies Bundle ($75 value) - Painted Poppies Stamp Set, Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper*, Sending You Thoughts Stamp Set*, Poppy Parade Ink Pad, Tuxedo Black Ink Pad, Clear Block D
  • Best Dressed Bundle ($85 value): Dressed to Impress Stamp Set, All Dressed Up Dies, Designer Paper (48 sheets 6x6”)*, 3x3 Note Cards and Envelopes (24)*, Clear Block D

Here is how to qualify for tickets for the drawing:

  • Drive to my house to pick up your catalog = 1 ticket
  • For every $10 spent on the retired sale = 1 ticket
  • For every $10 in product on a new order placed between June 13th and July 31st = 1 ticket (you can order on-line via my website or I can place the order for you)
  • For signing up as a demonstrator with me between June 13th and July 31st = 12 tickets (see special below for June)
  • Donate to the FoodBank, for every $10 donated = 2 tickets (please give your donation to me when you do your pick-up or you can mail it to me)
  • There is no limit to the number of tickets you can get through July 31st. I will keep track and put them in the basket for you with your name.
  • I will draw and announce the 2 winners on August 1st!

If you would like to pick-up your catalog and any retired product purchases after June 14th, please contact me and we can make arrangements.  You can continue to purchase retired products until July 31st  or while they last.  I will send out an updated list after June 14th.  You will still qualify for tickets as described above through July 31st.

AND finally, here are the specials happening from now to June 30th to kick-off the new catalog:
