SNAIL - a-thon Begins!!

Hi Stampers and Scrapbookers! 

I have a very special announcement for you that so many of you have been waiting for!  I am about to begin our SNAIL-a-thon!  What is that, you wonder?  SNAIL is that beloved double-sided tape runner that Stampin' Up! sells that, as many of you have concurred, is one of the best available anywhere.  

Well, we are about to begin the busiest crafting season of all and most of us have experienced the pain of being mid-project and running out of SNAIL!  That's why  I decided to see if we can stock up all at once and save money together. 

What you can do is calculate how much you tend to use in a year.  If you tend to use one per month then you would need 12 for the year. By doing that, we can put together an order large enough, with the big boost in free hostess dollars ( thank you Stampin' Up!) to drive the price way down!  Normally priced at $4.50 per refill, + shipping and tax, you usually pay $5.33 for each refill you order individually.  Well... The more SNAILs that gets ordered the more of my discount I will put in as well!  I'd like to drive that price down to $3.73 including the shipping and tax.  That is a savings of $1.60 per SNAIL!!  If you order 12, that is an extra $20 you save!!  How about that for power buying?!!

Lee's Bonus Offer!  Every SNAIL you order, you will receive one ticket for the drawing to give away the half-price items earned on this order!!  I will be giving up to 4 of these away.  That means you can order any one item in the catalog for 1/2 Price!!!  Double tickets  and a FREE Card Kit (to make 8 cards) for those who order 20 or more!!

I'm going to close out this special offer on August 31st at 9 PM .  Contact me by phone, email or snail mail (ha ha!) if you would like to get your big discount on SNAIL!!

Stampin' Fun!!

Up, Up & Away!

This new stamp set is AWESOME!  I just love the selection of hot air balloon possibilities!!  It's a great set by itself but is also wonderful to add the elements to any outdoor scene.  You have clouds, birds and beautiful balloons to use to decorate trees, hills, bodies of water and so much more!

To make this lovely card, I used a Baja Breeze card base 11"x4 1/4", folded in half.  I stamped some random clouds on it with Baja Breeze ink.  Then, I stamped my Hot Air Balloons and attached their baskets using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig tool.  On a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock, I stamped the striped balloon using Baja Breeze, Concord Crush and Poppy Parade colored markers.  I did add the basket to the balloon before cutting it our with my very sharp paper snips. ( I love how long those puppies stay sharp!)   Using 2-Way Glue Pen, I added some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to the stripes.  Now, it is time to add to the strip with a stampin' dimensional.

  Last, I added a greeting that says, " The sky's the limit!" dipped in Concord Crush on the bottom right hand corner, again, using my S-A-M-J for perfect placement.

Next, I took an 11" x 3/4" strip of Poppy Parade card stock and punched it with my Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch.  Then I cut that strip in 1/2 and adhered it to each side of Concord Crush mat and then add the Hot Air Balloon scene to the whole piece.  I centered that on the front of my Baja Breeze card base and tied a piece of Baja Breeze seam binding as shown.  Ta-Da!!
