GQ cards for August

Hi Stampers :

Happy Sunday friends !

Friday morning I sent out all my Glitter Queens quarterly cards (above photo show some of them ) . When making my Glitter Queens quarterly cards  I didn't realize how many steps  there were . Just loved the card and thought Yeah I will make these  for my Glitter Queens .

About 1/2 way through I was thinking " What was I thinking " LOL! 

I recieved the cutest swap at convention from Sharri and contacted her to see if it was okay if I used her idea and  then make a video on her idea . Since the card has many steps  I just highlight  what I did  and then I will put the card together with all of you .

That video will be posted  later this week .

 I am so excited that they are all finished ( over 100 of them ) and on their way to my Glitter Queens ( Just wait till you see it in person they are so stinkin CUTE!! )

So with my Downline cards done next on the agenda is to complete my Founders Circle swaps I need 126 of those. The more I can get done and checked off my list the  better I am ( Know what I mean ?)  I am not  good under pressure making so  many cards . Even though FC is over a month away the more I can get done the better  for me  since stress and my body do not work well together . 

This Friday night I was on a mission to  come up with my Founders Circle swap design . Imagine me going through all of my 600+ videos over the years . My swap had to be something quick and easy  .

I wanted to make something  with a Halloween theme  even though there is NO theme / No restrictions  on our swaps just to use current items .

I always find Halloween alot of fun maybe that's because my family doesn't  celebrate Halloween  BUT I was eye balling that Orange and Black glitter# # 132206  in the new Holiday catalog and  well one thing went to one thing and then another  and  well I have 3 Halloween  projects with finally the 1 I will be using ~ WHEW !

Glitter on floor

What a mess  after 5 hours of  playing & creating  . Needless to say  the biggest mess came when I was cleaning  up my huge mess . I spilled  the whole jar of orange  glitter on my floor . I'm shocked my neighbors didn't  hear me scream ( well maybe they did and didn't tell me) . 

As soon as the jar when over it all seemed like  it was moving in slow motion .I stood there and  looked at the Big mess . I did get a BIG bowl yesterday for my new glitter  so hopfully  this will not happen again …. 0f all the 10 years of stamping this is the second time this has happened ~Thank God ! 

I will be showing you the Halloween cards  over the next  couple weeks . I would show them all this week BUT I don't want to over whelm you will the same stamp set "Halloween Bash " over and over again .

I will be showing one tomorrow and also have a video on that card  this week as well (Super cute)

Today is the 1 st  full week of totally juicing we are eating a small dinner  But other than that we are just drinking Barley Max / Beet Max / Carrot Max . So much easier than me actually juicing  every other day 10 lbs of carrots . Just mix and drink ~ Healing inside out.

Are we loving the Holiday catalog ? I love  everything ! It really is an amazing catalog  and did you know it's an  interactive catalog?

Did you notice the  Icons  to use with your cell phone ( Iphone – Android )  download the Layar App.  and then scan the icon in the holiday catalog. The icons are spread throught out the catalog.

Layar App

This is what it looks like on page 5 in the Holiday catalog .

Once you scan the icon a  video plays about that product opens up . It's pretty awesome !

I added a quick video for you on this feature below or  you can click HERE if you subscribe to my blog feed since videos do not show up in the blog feed  .


 I will be sending  my August Newsletter out either tomorrow or Tuesday  so be looking for that in your email box .
