My Handheld Valentine

Hi Crafters and welcome to Stamping 2019 with Paper Rose!  I’m happy to report I have recovered from pneumonia and slowly getting back in full swing.  February Stamp Camp will be Thursday January 7th from 12 noon to 6 pm, Friday January 8th from 2 to 6 pm, and Saturday January 9th from 9 am to 4 pm.  If these times don’t work for you, please let me know and we can rearrange the schedule.

I have had to make a hard decision regarding the price of our stamp camps.  I know you are aware how everything is slowly inching up in cost.  I have kept the Stamp Camp price at $12 for years.  In order to be fair to myself, I have made the decision to increase the price of Stamp Camp to $14.  This allows us to continue using the high quality paper, stamps, dies and embellishments sold by Stampin’Up.  The $14 covers everything – supplies, tools and my loving touch.  Additional cards above the 4 for Stamp Camp will be $3.

Sale-A-Bration is taking place until March 31.  With any and each $50 Stampin’Up purchase (before tax and shipping), you choose an item from the current Sale-A-Bration brochure. To help you take advantage of Sale-A-Bration, for the month of February, I am discounting all Stampin’ Up cardstock/paper by an ADDITIONAL 10%.  This means all card stock, DSP, foils, vellum, glimmer, watercolor paper, etc. will be 20% off.  This is a discount offered by Paper Rose so orders will need to be placed thru me.  And with every $50 purchase, you choose a free item from the Sale-A-Bration brochure.  Many of you should have received your Sale-A-Bration brochures in the mail.  I will have extra brochures at February Stamp Camp. 

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner.  Although our February Stamp Camp cards have a valentine theme, they could also be used for birthdays, anniversaries, thinking of you, etc.  We have lots of sentiments to choose from.

01.20.19 Real Handheld Valentine 1 I love this gal – shown here holding a heart with a little sentiment.  The “Hand Delivered” set is in the 2018-2019 catalog on page 229.  This is a set only available to hostesses with a qualifying sale or purchase of $150.  The image is colored with Stampin’ Blends and layered on Blushing Bride.  The Melon Mambo background is embossed with the retired Falling Hearts embossing folder and accessorized with a simple white organza bow.  The stitched heart is from the new “Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies’.  The heart is cut from the new, free Lovely Lipstick Foil.  By free, I’m referring to the Sale-A-Bration sale thru March 31, 2019.  With any and each $50 purchase, you choose an item from the current Sale-A-Bration brochure.  The Grapefruit Grove &Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheets is one of these free items (pg. 12)

01.20.19 Real Handheld Valentine 2 The Sale-A-Bration foil sheets includes 8 sheets, 4 each of the 2 colors, 12X12 in size. 

The second sample shows a flowered skirt – different from the skirt in the sample above.  There are 3 skirts available for this lovely lady as well as an assortment of items for her to carry.  The small sentiment is stamped in Lovely Lipstick or Melon Mambo and features a small heart epoxy droplet colored with Stampin’ Blends in Lovely Lipstick.  We will be using these little epoxy hearts on several of our February cards and throughout the year.  I love the cute heart stamp shown here on the envelope.  This is from the new “Forever Lovely” stamp set.

01.20.19 Handheld Valentine 1Although we are not making this card in February, I wanted to share the card I made for my Granddaughter Jailyn’s birthday.  As you can guess, she turned 14.  This is from the “Hand Delivered” set used above.  Instead of a sign, our gal is holding an assortment of balloons. Other images for her to carry include a 3-layer cake and an armful of packages. The image was colored with Stampin’ Blends.  Note the stitched Highland Heather and Whisper White layers.  You will be using these new “Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies” on another February card.  I love the professional finish from the stitched dies. 

I hope to see you at February Stamp Camp.  Although it appears the weather will be a bit chilly these 3 days, there will be warmth and laughter inside 533 Emerson Circle.  Stay warm – there are less than 60 days until spring.

Blessings, Rosemary – (home)630.759.3089 – (cell)630.965.1965 – paperrose01@aol.com
