Stampin'Up! annual online extravaganza is here!
The first incredible offering of this promotion will be the 24-hour stamp sale. Select stamp sets will be 20% off for the first 24 hours of Online Extravaganza. Because of the limited time urgency of this sale, this is a great opportunity for you to stock up on awesome stamps! Stamp Sale starts November 20 12:00 AM and ends November 20 11:59 PM. 
To close out Online Extravaganza with a bang, Stampin'Up! is offering a special 24-hour flash sale on November 27th, after other Online Extravaganza deals end on the 26th. I will provide more information on this flash sale, later in the week. Make sure to check back here for the announcement and more details!

Stamparatus is coming!



Reservation opens Wednesday November 16th 2PM (MT).
See detailed schedule below


With the launch of this tool, Stampin'Up! is trying something different: testing a new reservation system. It acts like a true preorder: you reserve your spot and we guarantee shipment as soon as the product arrives in our warehouse. This system will allow them to get the product to market as soon as possible while avoiding backorders and efficiently managing inventory. 

The global launch will feature three reservation windows. For each window, please note the following:
  • Reservation quantities are while supplies last.
  • Limit is 1 tool per customer per reservation window. 
  • You may participate in multiple reservation windows.
  • In order to reserve your Stamparatus, you are required to provide your credit card information.
  • Credit cards will not be charged until the Stamparatus ships from our facility. When you close your order, be sure to verify that your credit card and shipping information is correct.

Diving into art

So, instead of doing cards on my vacation, my sister-in-law organized a 'diving into art' session for my birthday.

We had 5 adults and 2 children in our group, and we had a blast!
This project is part of Finland's 100 year celebration. The artist, Paula Julia Rusokallio from Creatimagia, is assembling an art collage in December 2017 from all the portraits painted in the workshops during this year.



It was a very interesting concept!
We started by drawing our own faces - EYES CLOSED!! by following our features with a brush while drawing the image. Then we did a second drawing, again eyes closed!!, with 2 different coloured markers! One drawing the left side of the face and the other drawing the right side.


Then we traced the lines from those two images (choosing, which features to use from each drawing) on a transparency sheet with a black permanent marker.
After this, we squeezed paint on the lines, and pressed the mirror image on our final project base.

Then we ripped pieces of paper from magazines and decoupaged them around our images. Wrote a poem, using letters from words we chose, and wrote that around our image. 

My poem went something like this:
Again the running sun is flooding the evening. 
A car is floating by beneath the window. 
The city senses - a new youth. 
A person arrives. 
Outside of the corner world speaks. 
A daring joy babbles. 
Forward drives the light.

Finally we added some paint on our image. What a great creative day!
