What’s Up in April & May?

Well, a whole lot that’s for sure!  Let me just start off by FREAKING OUT just a bit, for one SALE-A-BRATION is only 5 more days, what?!  Two, I can’t believe 2015 is almost 1/4 of the way over! Three, my HAWAII GRAND VACAY is practically around the corner!! Wait… what, how did all this happen so fast?!  Time is flying, but I have gotten down to work and planned LOTS of awesome events and classes for the next 2 months!

Oh and did I forget to mention that in a matter of a couple weeks we will have a RETIRED PRODUCT LIST from Stampin’ Up!  Which means of course… time for a NEW CATALOG!!!  Before you know it, school won’t only be over but it will be restarting again and that means I will have my first HIGH SCHOOL-ER!!! Ack!  Where’s that little brown bag when you need it?  Ok, one thing at a time…

Sale-a-bration new

Remember that there are 24 items available to select for FREE with any $50+ product order through the end of March.  For every $50 you spend, you can select ONE SAB item.  Remember that the Blendabilities are no longer available but I have included links for you to view everything.




Get your FAVE SAB items while you can, once this promotion ends- it’s gone, never to return- NOT EVEN ON THE CLEARANCE RACK!  no joke. 😐

I admit that I was more than a little giddy when I glanced at the calendar and noticed how soon my trip to HAWAII is, then I realized how many days I would be gone… which means I have that many fewer days for classes and events in May.  Which means of course that I needed to do something FUN to make you miss me while I am away 😉

Let’s run through my CREATIVE CALENDAR for the next 2 months.  There is a LOT going on and remember that I have ALL of this updated and events posted on my calendar for you as well.

Sale-A-Bration Celebration Projects featuring negative space using framelits, thinlits and Big Shot

First up we have SALE-A-BRATION CELEBRATION EVENT on April 4th from 2-5 PM – this is going to be an amazing event.  I have adorable projects planned for the attendees to this INVITE ONLY event.  Wondered if you earned a ticket, or who has RSVP’s?  Want to see what AMAZING details I have added about this event?  CLICK HERE TO SEE IT ALL!!

Congrats Grad Class of 2015

Get ready for those upcoming Graduates with the help of the CONGRATS GRAD GIFT SET CLASS!  Class date is April 25th from 11-1 PM.  In this class we will make this adorable fancy fold card (perfect for cash or gift cards – there’s a hidden secret!) plus this FUN cap box that holds lots of those adorable cap treats!  We will even learn how to make our own tassels!  SO FUN and the timing couldn’t be better.  CLICK HERE FOR FULL CLASS DETAILS.

Dearest Mom Gift Set Class

Of course we can’t forget about Mom!  DEAREST MOM GIFT SET CLASS, on April 25th from 11-1 PM.  I know some of my stampers may not have their Mother’s any longer and they automatically think this class won’t pertain to them but I would question that.  We all know an amazing Mother, it might be our daughter-in-law, it might be our friend, it might be our co-worker… this is a perfect gift for any woman, and if you want to make it less “Mom” themed you simply change the sentiment and it’s really perfect for any woman.  CHECK OUT FULL CLASS DETAILS HERE!

That pretty much covers April… BUT my May events are earlier than usual which means we need to get a jump on them NOW!  Wait till you see what I have planned!!


First up, I have STAMPERS BINGO!!!  This is going to be a FUN afternoon event.  There will 6 Bingo games and prizes for all the winners PLUS fun make-n-take projects ANNNNNNDDDD- each attendee will get a goodie bag filled with product (valued over $15).  You won’t want to miss this event, SPACE IS LIMITED which means that I am capping the number of attendees.  If you want to attend I would REGISTER TODAY, remember to register your friends if you want to BINGO with them too!  CHECK OUT FULL EVENT DETAILS HEREREGISTRATION DEADLINE IS APRIL 22nd!!


I don’t have samples done just yet, but the only card class that I will have in May will be my SIMPLE STAMPING CLASS on May 9th from 11-1 PM.  They will be adorable, I am sure… I am still deciding on which sets to use, LOL!!  The projects will be posted soon.

Then lastly for May… it’s that time again…

2014 Catalog Kickoff Luau project http://www.handstampedstyle.com

Adorable projects we made at the 2014 Event!


Details will be coming soon for this event, but it is a MUST!!  There will be treats and goodies for all and special surprises for my Hostess Club Members, and those who join my Hostess Clubs at the the event.  There of course will be adorable projects to create and yummy food to partake of.  This event is always a ball and this year will be even BETTER.  The theme is MEDITERRANEAN!!!  That’s right, I typically tie the theme to the Grand Vacay I am shooting for and this year it’s the Mediterranean, specifically Spain, France and Italy.  Oh can’t wait, this event will be amazing!!!
