Just Sayin’ Hello!

“Just sending a post to say hello!

This card was inspired by Joy during our little stampin’ fellowship prior to convention. I considered doing this as one of my #convention2013 swaps but then ultimately went with a slightly different design as I wanted to showcase a few more of the new In Colors on my #swap. I love simple cards and this one qualifies!

I Miss You Already

“I miss you already times two!”

I didn’t get a chance to share a sneak peek of this swap for you. I wanted my swaps to showcase several new items from the catalog so they would be a great swap for other demonstrators to share with their customers and be able to see several new items! This card features 5 new things yet it is not too busy! I used the Negative Space technique featured here.

You’re Just My Cup of Tea

“You are just my cup of tea; bath tea, that is!”

As promised here is my 3D convention 2013 swap that I gave you a sneak peek of here! I made an envelope to hold the tea bag below:

The back looked like this:

I purchased the tea bags here. I made up the tea in bulk using equal parts of Rosemary, Lavender, Rose Petals, and Mint purchased from Rose Mountain Herbs. Each bag has 1/2 cup of the tea. To use: boil 2 cups of water and steep bag for about 15 minutes; then add to your bath water.

I am almost done assembling these swaps! I may cut some more to assemble on the plane (the definitive sign of madness). Today I leave for convention. I am so excited! My blog will be silent while I am gone. I am going to share my convention news through my Facebook Page @ www.facebook.com/Inkheaven! Like my page to see my updates! When I get back I will share my completed swaps with you! I’m waiting because I don’t want to spoil the surprise for those demonstrators who follow my blog and will be swapping with me!

Honeycomb Sweetness

“Honeycomb sweetness never spoils!”

Did you know that real, unprocessed honey does not spoil or go bad? Many people find it rather surprising that bacteria cannot grow in honey because all things being equal, bacteria loves sugar. The unique chemical composition of low water content and relatively high acidic level in honey creates a low pH (3.2-4.5) environment that makes it very unfavorable for bacteria or other micro-organisms to grow.

Honey naturally contains 18 amino acids, plus small amounts of a many vitamins and minerals. The old wives’ tales we hear are actually often based in truth, as honey has been used in folk medicine for thousands of years. Not only can honey soothe and lubricate a sore throat, but because of its nutrient-rich profile, it has been used internally and externally for a variety of other health benefits!

I have some customers/friends who are honeycomb sweet in my life; Kay is one of them! She sent this card to me recently with payment for her order. Her card is absolutely stunning!

Amazing Friend

“Stamping creates amazing friends!”

There is so much more to stamping than creating cards. Stamping also creates some amazing friendships! I have customers who are so much more than customers. I value their friendship first; appreciate their business second! I recently did a full-time stint at a local acupuncture clinic and sadly, it interfered with some regularly scheduled stampin’ time with friends. Much to my surprise and delight, Joy popped into the clinic with some cards for me! It was such a bright spot in my day and put a lighter step in my feet! This is one of the cards she made and gave me.
