Happy 2018

Happy 2018 dumplings! Have you made your plans for 2018? No, Miss Hammie is not talking resolutions, I said plans. I’m sure I never told you before, but Miss Hammie’s father was a high school Mathematics teacher and had a wealth of cliche sayings that he tossed around. The man was a veritable walking fortune cookie. However, one of them makes a great deal of sense and shouldn’t be dismissed with a “Yeah right”.  Now you’re wondering what Mr. Miss Hammie’s father said. Very simple, no doom and gloom. “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. So plan your work, then work your plan.”. Sure at thirteen Miss Hammie thought her Dad had “totally lost it”, now I know better. So dumplings sit down think about what you want to do and then plan how you accomplish it. That’s Miss Hammie’s advice for 2018.

Today I’m sharing my New Year’s card some information and an opportunity.  The card was created from a product you only have one more day to purchase the Year of Cheer specialty Designer Series Paper from the Holiday catalog. It’s on the Retiring list so come 11:50pm MT January 2, 2018 it is gone forever bye bye. The card base is made from Basic Black cardstock that was cut to 51/2 x 81/2, scored at 41/4. I layered a piece of Year of Cheer dsp cut to 51/4 x 4 on the card base. Before I attached it I used the Large Numbers framelit dies from the Annual catalog to cut out 2018.


1847641E-B672-492B-9E43-4FC28FA31C30I removed the numbers and attached the dsp to the card base. Then I placed the numbers back in place I removed the center of the zero and then attached just that part of the zero to the card base using Snail. Then I did the same with the eight. Then I removed the numbers and attached adhesive strips to the back of the numbers. I removed the backing from the adhesive strips and attached the numbers to the card base. Inside the card I used Snail to attach a layer of Whisper White cardstock cut to 5 x 33/4. Using  the Amazing You  stamp set from the Sale -a- Bration brochure I stamped the sentiment in Stampin’ Up Basic Black ink.

Well Miss Hammie has shared her card and a little advice. Now it’s  time for a reminder. The End of Year Sale ends tomorrow January 2, ‘18. There are still oodles if bargains to be had. We all saw things in the Holiday catalog that we loved and wanted that won’t be available after tomorrow. So go to my online store by using the link below. Don’t forget to check the Clearance Rack while you’re in my Online Store.

Finally I mentioned an opportunity and it’s a doozy. Let me pose a question before I elaborate.  What if I said “Here’s $99.00, I know a way that you can choose $125.00 worth of crafting merchandise and only pay $99.00 as full payment. Then as an added bonus you can pick 2 additional items of any price as a free extra. Then to make the deal even better they won’t charge you shipping and handling and anything you purchase later you’ll get a 20% discount. Would you be interested?  If your answer is “Yes Miss Hammie, I would definitely be interested”, here’s why I asked. What I just described is what we like to call the “Ultimate Bundle”. It’s what it costs and what you get if you join my team by becoming a demonstrator.  For $99.00 you get to pick $125.00 worth of merchandise from Stampin’ Up and it comes to you with no shipping charge. Plus anything you buy after this purchase you’ll get a 20% discount. If you help me celebrate my birthday by joining on January 3rd you also get to choose 2 additional stamp sets of any price, from any catalog. I know what you’re thinking because I thought it when I was first approached about becoming a demonstrator. I don’t want to have a bunch of strangers in my home, or do a workshop in theirs. Another is I can’t sell, I’m so bad I couldn’t sell heaters in winter. Over 90 % of all Stampin Up demonstrators are what we call Hobby demos, they don’t have workshops in their homes or anyone else’s. They don’t sell. Basically they are their best customer. They create personalized cards , party decorations and such that become keepsakes. The best part is if you join and then decide it’s not for you, there’s no penalty you just shoot an email to Stampin’ Up saying you don’t want to do it anymore. There are other perks, like access to new products earlier during our presales, plus little extras just for demonstrators. Follow the Join My Team link below to become one of my Dumplings.

well that’s all for now dumplings so . . .

  1. I love it, Robbye! I have a feeling these Large Numbers dies are getting a workout in projects across the globe today. Love how you’ve showcased them here. Love the step-by-step, too. ❤ Happy New Year's Day, my friend.
