on-line extravaganza sale....






 Order $30 from my shop 24/7 and get 2 free card kits where you just add the stamps! Use code JHGZN7C7! 

tag you're it challenge....

supplies: ink-memento and gelatos, stamps-stampin up (retired set) and amuse studio, papers-ballet blue, real red (stampin up), tag (corediantions), black cs and kraft cs( michaels); accessories-white zigzag ribbon (my stash).

I started out with a white tag, sprayed my tag with water and then colored with the red onto the tag.  I filled in with the gold gelato.  Then I used a paper towel to smoosh it and rub it altogether.  

I was inspired by the tag over it Tag You're It Challenge Blog.  The gold/kraft looking color.  The circle shape in the middle and the big greeting words. By the way....  Dianne Jacquay is so talented!

I am also entering this in ...
Amusing Challenge...anything goes.
 I am excited to get back into blogging again!
Thanks for stopping by!

a total whirlwind of change....

This summer I found out I had an opportunity to transfer back to  2nd grade and I was ready for a change!  Moving a classroom, getting a classroom ready and learning a new math and language arts curriculum has made for lots of late nights! I've put in a lot of work and I was finally starting to feel the fruits of my labors.  Then I received a sad email from Amuse Studio letting us know that the last day of being open as a direct sales business would be November 27.  I am so excited for Linda and wish her the best on her retirement.  With that being said, I began to feel very sad that I would not be able to share my love of stamping with my customers who have become great friends.....
After much deliberation, I decided that I would rejoin Stampin' Up! I ordered my kit today and it should be here in the next 7 days.  It was pretty exciting being able to pick whatever I wanted out of the catalog that totaled $125 knowing that I was only paying $99 and getting a great business starter package!  Thanks to Marisa for helping me make my decision!
I wanted to share the awesome promotion that is happening right now...



And here's some candy for your eyes....





Place any order of $30 or more with this code....JHGZN7C7 
and I will send you something special in the mail!


a|muse studio news!!!!!

Here are the highlights of the new things happening in a|muse studio world!!!!
Bigger Monthly Collections coming | A Muse Studio realizes that YOU LOVE NEW. Who doesn’t, right?! It’s always fun to see what’s new and rolling all of that NEW product out in one big annual catalog is great, but within a few weeks, it’s all old news and then its another year until the same excitement builds again. Instead of rolling out a new annual catty with lots of new stamp sets at once, A|S is going to continue the Monthly Collections making them bigger and better than ever, every month! There will always be something fresh, new and fun to look forward to in the A Muse Studio Monthly Collections. The August Collection will feature some wonderful new Halloween stamps, dies, sequins, card stock and some new colored Wink of Stella pens in purple and green…yippee!

New Dye-based inks |  We know you love our pigment inks for their smooth, chalky texture and great coverage, but we also know how much you love techniques that incorporate dye-based inks. A|S is rolling out brand new dye-based ink in all of the colors of our current palette and adding two new colors every month. Each month within the monthly collection, two of our current colors will roll out as dye-based ink pads and two new colors will also be revealed. You can build your collection slowly and add these great new ink pads to your stash! First up— lily pad, a beautiful emerald green to add to the color palette and creamcicle, a gorgeous peach!
We’ve Gone Digital! | We’ve received consistent positive feedback on the digital brochures for the Monthly Collections! With so much inspiration on the internet between Pinterest, Instagram and YouTube, product catalogs are not the main source of inspiration anymore. Catalogs, although they are nice to hold, cost a ton of money to create, print and then ship, and they are practically obsolete before the ink is dry on the paper! Our annual catalog will be completely digital,absolutely free and ready for you to download onto your computer, kindle, iPad, cell phone or any other digital device for reference! You can go to the sidebar on my blog to download your free copy or download below!
Incidentally, there will now be TWO annual catalogs—one that incorporates all of the stamps and dies from the past year, including many prior Monthly Collection sets that made the cut, as well as a catalog incorporating all of the essentials – card stock, inks, ribbons, sequins, tools, etc. to make your crafting fun! These digital catalogs have a nice index to help you find what you’re looking for in a flash!



No Quarterly Sales Quotas! |  Yes, you read that correctly, A Muse Studio is doing away with the whole quarterly sales quota requirement. Starting August 1, 2016, you can purchase the kit and sign on with A Muse Studio as a Creative Consultant, enjoy all of the perks of that designation (20% discount on product, free training and support, access to the back office where you can connect with fun, crafty ladies who share your interest, the idea gallery for consultants, the ability to make A Muse Studio as much or as little as you want it to be in your life, early looks at all of the Monthly Collections (a month in advance of customers), plus the option of attending the annual A|S National Conference and Creative Retreat!) with none of the pressure to sell! If you decide to buy some products yourself and sell to a few friends and your total annual sales reaches $900 or more in sales volume before your first anniversary with A|S, your renewal fee is waived, otherwise just pay $49 to renew and continue to enjoy the benefits of being a consultant! Its that simple! Who would like to join me on this fun, crafty adventure?!?!

Here are some cards I made that I wanted to share with you....

A Muse Studio
A Muse Studio was founded in 2001 by CEO & Founder, Linda Carnell. Prior to launching A Muse, Linda worked for Microsoft in product development & consumer marketing.
