Hello Fabulous Followers, Fellow Stampers and Random Lurkers,
Welcome to the Seashore Stampers November Blog. This month, we are celebrating Christmas Cards and packages. There are so many fabulous ways to express ourselves - it's sometimes hard to decide what to do. Meet my card, "Xmas, Oh Deer."
This is the first card I created with the delightful Merry Patterns Hostess Set. Since I had also just bought the incredible Large Letter Framelits, I simply had to make an eclipse card. Now I know some folks have an aversion to the word Xmas. Recently I found out the history of the word and hope to change your mind. Contrary to popular belief, Xmas is not a secular word. Going way back in history, Christ was often written as "Xρ" or "Xt." In Greek, X is "chi," the first letter in Χριστος (Kreetos) which translates to Christ. X has in fact been an acceptable representation of Christ for hundreds of years. So, Merry Xmas!
My first Christmas Craft Fair was at Goward House last weekend. I was told by my friends to make "lots of crackers." Until just over a week ago, I had never even made a cracker. There I was, 2 days before the fair, figuring this out. (Holy Procraftination, Batman!) Well, now that I know how, I don't think I'll ever stop. They are so easy and so much fun. You can put what ever you want in them. I used the coveted Hershey Candycane kisses.
For the complete recipe and supply list, just drop me a line and I'll provide them.
Be sure to come visit me at Cook Street Village today, November 25th.

My Amazing Monthly Specials

With the holidays just around the corner...okay, maybe not, but they are slowly creeping up on us. If we do some preparation now, we will be SO grateful later. (I know, this is rich coming from me, the Queen of Procrastination.)
This month, the Seashore Stampers have turned our focus to packaging. There are so many fabulous ways to change a piece of paper into a beautiful package, it's astounding. You could make a gift card holder, a cracker, a gift bag, a gift box, an explosion box, and so much more.
Since the Gift Bag Punch Board is one of the EASIEST and FASTEST ways to make gift packaging, I went that route. Also, it uses our amazing Designer Series Paper, much of which is still on special (buy 3 get 1 free) until Oct 31st. And, it also uses the Fast Fuse, which was on a crazy buy 1 get 2 (refills) free special at the beginning of this month. (If you missed that special, watch this space. The fabulous team at Stampin' Up has said they will do it again.)
Here are the 3 gift bags I made. My supply list is at the end of this blog. If you have any questions, please contact me.
Happy Halloween! Happy Early Christmas Preparations ! And Happy Stampin!

Stampin' Up has some alcohol markers
in the works. They will be called Stampin' Blends and come in a
delicious variety of colours, including bronze and ivory. (Enough to
make even the most seasoned stamper swoon.) As a Stampin' Up
Demonstrator, I am able to get these over the next two weeks. We don't yet have a launch date for customers, but if you can't wait, contact me! I'll let you know how you can get them, and everything else, at a wicked discount!
As many of you know, World Card Making Day is Oct 7, 2017. This is a day we can celebrate by creating a card, remembering some of the best gifts are made by hand and come from the heart. To help celebrate, Stampin' Up has rolled out an amazing sale, running from Oct 1-10th.
I'm so excited about the Stampin' Up specials, I in turn, I am offering a FREE CLASS this Saturday, Oct 7th to commemorate World Card Making Day. Just come by my place anytime between 1:00pm and 3:00pm. No creative talent is required. Even if you've never held a Snail before, you can do this. (If you don't know what a Snail is, I'm talking about you.) When you bring a friend, who hasn't come to any of my classes before, you will both receive a gift from me. When you place an order over 40, on World Card Making Day, you will also receive a gift from me. Place an order over 200 and receive Hostess Benefits.
From today until October 10th, our Very Vanilla and Whisper White Note Card & Envelope sets, along with a bunch of Stamp Sets are on special for 15% off. All the Stamp Sets on sale coordinate with the Designer Series Paper on special. In addition, there is also a crazy Fast Fuse frenzy. Buy a Fast Fuse and get TWO REFILLS FOR FREE! (There is no limit.) Oct 5th update: apparently we love Fast Fuse more than Stampin' Up anticipated. They are sold out. Rather than go on back order, they will offer this promotion again, hopefully in the not too distant future. They are really sorry for any inconvenience.)
A ton of the Designer Series Papers are on sale too! Buy any 3 of the sale DSPs and get one sale DSP pack for FREE. In addition to a couple from the Holiday Catalogue, it includes all the DSP Paper Stacks and all the regular 12 sheet packs of DSP from the Annual Catalogue. (You can buy 3 at 12.50 and get the selected 17.00 one for free.) I have samples of many of the DSPs at my place, so come have a look. But be warned, they are even more tempting in person. (Again, there is no limit. This sale runs until Oct 31.)
If that's not enough, the incredible FREE Merry Patterns Stamp Set opportunity continues until October 31st as well. The ONLY way to score the ridiculously cute Stamp Set is to either host a party with 375 in sales or spend it yourself. Either way, you get the FREE stamp set in addition to all your other hostess benefits!
Thank you so much for reading. Happy shopping.
