Today is the last day of the Get Connected Promotion!!

Hey everyone! Just a reminder that today is the LAST day that you can take advantage of the "Get Connected" Promotion! For every $50 spent from the Occasions Mini Catalogue, or for every $200 spent on anything, you get to choose a freebie from the "Under $12" page in the Spring/Summer 2009 Catalogue!!!

*The items in the Occasions Mini are still available until June 30th. Just the promotion ends today.

If you want to take advantage of this, you have to contact me TODAY! Say tuned tomorrow for our May promotions! Here's a hint, think Scrapbooking!

I promised last week that I would share with you the cards that we made at last weeks Birthday card class. This first one is almost a total copy of my upline Caro's card (she has one version posted in October). We changed it up by stamping an addtional centre and 2 extra leaves. These were then cut out and mounted on dimensionals, but not before covering the centre with Dazling Diamonds!! Some of the women even glittered up the leaves too!

This second card uses the Big Bold Cupcake sizzlits dies for the Big Shot. It isn't on this version, but the one's the women made had the tops texturized with the small dots texturz plate, and the bottom of the cupcake was run through a crimper (Thanks to Wanda for letting us use hers!). The background is the Happy Birthday wheel.

The next one is a card for the men in our lives. I always find it so challenging making masculine cards, because I love to work with pink! For this one we used the "Celebrations" stamp from the "Under $12" page (FREE today, contact me to learn how). We coloured one of the celebrates with a Always Articoke marker and then stamped the entire image in Not quite navy. Then it was punched out with the large oval and mounted on to a Always Articoke scallop oval from the Occasions Mini. The patterned paper is from the Simply Scrapin' kit "Tailor Made".

And finally, this last card I think is my favorite! I absolutely love this image from the "Cupcakes for all" set. We coloured it in with Stampin' Pastels and then of course topped off the cupcakes with Dazzling Diamonds glitter! Inside we stamped the sentiment "Celebrate one cupcake at a time" from the Hostess set "Sweet little Sentiments".

In May I will be featuring a Scrapbooking 101 class and a card class using the Occasions Mini stamp sets. My newsletter will be going out shortly, so if you don't already subscribe enter your name today.
