Shel’s Stampin’ News                     June 3, 2013

Hello Girls! 

It’s here!  It’s here! Oh my goodness….the NEW CATALOG is finally here!  It has been so very hard for the past couple of weeks to keep silent about all the AMAZING new products in the catalog! 

1.  The magnetic platform has got to be the most unbelievably wonderful new product!  It keeps your dies in place with magnets in the base plate!  Here is a link to a video that shows you just how amazing this is:

2.  My New Catalog Kick Off Party was a ton of fun!  We had a great mix of girls who currently attend my classes and some new girls who were checking things out; who we will hopefully see in classes soon. 
We  oogled the catalog for a while, then played a game about new products in the catalog and whoever answered the questions got additional ticket for the door prize.
Then we did a scavenger hunt and Shirley won the prize for that.
We had some snacks and oogled the catalog some more.
Then we played a game that was a ton of fun.  I made a really simple card, and then the girls had to try and duplicate it- blindfolded. Carole’s antics were hilarious!  We laughed so much over this one….too much fun.  Kristina won this game and got extra tickets for the doorprize.

 Then we drew a door prize and Dorothy won the textured impressions embossing machine (purse). 

Then we drew a runner up door prize and Shirley won again, but she graciously shared part of her loot with Kristina as she already had one of the items in her bag.

Finally we did a make and take card with the new products.

After some additional catalog oogling and snacks we ended the evening…it was a lot of fun!
Here are some photos of the blind cardmaking:

3.   The 25th Anniversary stamp set for June is out…it is called the Best of Greetings, item#133485 $17.95
