Harvest Hellos

Hi Everyone.  It has been a couple weeks since I posted.  I had a nasty cold that I just couldn't shake.  I slept a lot and didn't get much chance to stamp.  I was so happy to spend yesterday in my craft room. I made a lot of new cards and even a new video, which I will add to this post later today.   I wanted to share a collection of projects made with the Harvest Hellos stamp set.  This is a new stamp set from the Holiday catalog and I really like it.   The set is very versatile and has a matching paper punch that cuts out both the apple image and the pumpkin image.





This set is also great for a variety of coloring techniques.   Here I used Aqua Painters to color in the images.  This is one of my favorite coloring techniques.  My video on this collection shows how easy it is to color the stamps and get these beautiful results.




















 For the scrapbook page and matching card, I stamped directly onto colored cardstock, no coloring required.

The half apple can also be cut out with the paper punch.




 For this Get Well Card, I used the inside cut of of the apple stamp to color in the image.  You can see this technique in my video.




















I think I will get the most use out of the pumpkin. It is so great for both Thanksgiving and Halloween because Stampin' Up! added this super cute Jack-o-Lantern face that you can add to the pumpkin. How fun is that.  Check back later in the week for a how to video for this candy holder.
This treat holder is made with the new Mini Curvy Keepsakes box.  I just love this little box and the Jack-o-Lantern face from Harvest Hellos fits the box perfectly! How adorable!!

Hurry, offer ends soon!!

Now is an Awesome Time to join Stampin' Up!  Right now pay just $99 for $155 worth of products of YOUR CHOICE!! We all have wish lists that can be quite long, and here is a way to get a lot for less!  Stampin' Up! throws in a Free Past Paper Pumpkin kit too, just to show you what they are.  And you will get a $10 coupon to use towards your first order.  You will enjoy a starting discount of 20% off, and that can grow to higher discounts as you go forward.  There are other perks too! Quarterly Stampin' Success magazine with beautiful projects and articles about products and the business, many resources on the exclusive Demonstrator Website, an online community of other demos sharing ideas and tips, sneak peeks on upcoming products, and early purchase of products. Of course the discount is what we love the most. 
Here are some common questions:

Q. What if I want to do this as a hobby and not necessarily a business?
A. Stampin’ Up! supports all demonstrators, no matter their goals or the level at which they choose to run their business. If you choose not to hold workshops, you can simply place your own orders and/or collect orders from family and friends to equal the quarterly sales minimum.

Q. Do I have to recruit other demonstrators? 
A. No. If you were to recruit demonstrators, you would be paid team commissions on your team’s sales, but this is a perk, not a requirement.

Q. Is Stampin’ Up! a well-known, respected company? 
A. Since 1988, Stampin’ Up! has been selling stamps and papercrafting supplies. In that time, not only have we won industry awards and accolades, but also the loyalty and admiration of demonstrators and customers alike. And that is a trend that we work hard to maintain. You can rest assured that the reputation of Stampin’ Up! will only continue to improve! 

Q. What if I decide that I don’t like it once I’ve started? Will I be penalized if I quit? 

A. You may choose to stop at anytime, and you will not be penalized. You simply stop placing orders. However, there are many benefits to remaining an active demonstrator. If you have any questions about Stampin’ Up! or becoming a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, please contact your demonstrator.

Q. What are the minimum sales requirements? 
A. You only need to submit 300 CSV (Commissionable Sales Volume) in sales per quarter. That is less than an average Stampin’ Up! workshop! Also, you can submit your sales in any increment you wish and still receive your 20 percent discount and commission (or 25 percent if you become a bronze elite title or above). 

There may be other questions that you have, and I will be happy to answer them.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions.  bethrush@issinternet.com

"Under the Sea" party Favors

Hi everyone! Today I am sharing some party favors that I am making for my mom.  She goes to a water aerobics class and it is about to be over for the season.  They celebrate the year with a big luncheon.
This year my mom is in charge of the decorations and favors.  She asked me to come up with an idea and then we will get together to make them. This is what I came up with.  I am hoping the circles look like scales on a mermaid tail :)





I used the  1 inch circle punch to create the scales.  I also made sure to use up a lot of the smaller scraps of cardstock that I have been collecting. I choose various shades of color and never had to cut a new sheet of cardstock! I love it when I can use up my scraps, and that made the project less expensive.  I used the Ticket Tear Border punch for the band around the bag. It helped give a nice clean look to the scales. The Ticket border punch is on the Clearance rack right now.
I also threw in a shinny scale every now and then just for fun. It made me think of the Rainbow Fish book! Do you know that one? I think I have it memorized, my son asked for that one a lot!




The bags are a nice size, not too big that it takes a lot to fill them, but not too small that you don't have options.  I made sure that they could be filled with either candy or something bigger like some lotions or things like that.














                                     I made a how to video for this project. You can see it here:
