Happy Wednesday!  I’m happy because the sun is still shining, we won at the football last night………..!  I am so not a football girl, but when it comes to national pride, I support England  and of course all the Great Britain teams too!  Some how though we always seem to do it the hard way, but I’ll be watching on Saturday to see if we can keep going!

I’m also really happy because today I have been clearing an administration task that has been hanging over my head for ages.  I have combined my blog feed and email updates with my email list, highly boring but necessary. You may have received an email from me today asking you to update your name on my records, that’s because it didn’t quite go as planned! Not all the names came through correctly, which has been giving me a bit of a headache, but it’s all done now. If you get your blog posts via email and you are reading this in your inbox it has worked ! Hurrah!

If however, you have no idea what I’m talking about, I will explain. You can get my new blog posts sent to your inbox instead of visiting my blog to see if there is a new post. There is a sign up form to the right of this blog post or at the bottom and you will get my customer email newsletters as well.

Finally before we get to the creative stuff I have had a few emails wondering why I haven’t been sending emails……. I have, but at the end of May I contacted everyone on my mailing list asking them to re-confirm their permission for me to send them emails.  Unfortunately not everyone did that so I had to stop sending emails to those people.  If that’s you I’m sorry, and if you would like to start receiving them again just re-subscribe using the form to the right or at the bottom of this blog post.

So is it too early for Christmas? Not in my world, never too early for Christmas !

Hall Full Christmas Card Inspiring Inkin Stampin' Up! UK Amanda Fowler

At the monthly Card Class I run we make 6 cards each month. We make one Christmas card each month from April-September and then three between September-November.  You can find out all about the card Class by clicking not he link HERE. Along side the other Christmas Card classes I run we get to make plenty!

I love this Half Full Stamp set, the greetings are fun and the fonts are great too. On this card we stamped the large wine glasses in Real Red ink onto the Real Red card.  The sentiment and the small wine glasses where stamped in Early Espresso ink and then coloured in using the Blender pens. I took from the lid of the ink pads. A little bit of gold foil sets it off and better still it is flat to save on those postage costs!

So shredding is my evening works ahead and then making up some new demonstrator packs. I am thrilled there are lots of people joining my team this week it is so exciting!  I’m so pleased for them its such a great deal and who knows what starting a business with Stampin’ Up! will do!  I never thought I’d be jetting off to Alaska on a cruise with my hubby when I started. But that’s where I’m going in 2 weeks as a reward for sales, growing my business and supporting my team.

I’d love to answer your questions about starting your journey with Stampin’ Up! email me and we can chat!
