When pencils are paintbrushes and aqua painters become ink pads.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! I’m sure you are reading this headline and wondering if I am stuck on Wacky Wednesday. To answer your question…nope. I know what I am doing. Trust me on this one.

So today I am asking you to shake up your shimmer paint and dip your pencil in the lid to get those flower centers. To get the purple centers I lightly dipped my stylus into my ink pad. Remember the word lightly, please.

I also took an aqua painter filled 3/4 of the way with rubbing alcohol and dripped about 8 drops of shimmer paint into the barrel. I capped it tightly and gently shook the pen until all was mixed. I uncapped away from my card stock and then squeezed the barrel until I had my wet shimmer paint coming out. I then brushed it on to the stamp (Floral Essence, out on June 4) and stamped away to create my background.

Remember to cut almost double the ribbon you need with the copper trim so you can stretch it to make it look like a net.

Here’s the cards…

Finishing up all the planning.

It’s Management Monday! I have done my share of planning and only have a little bit to go. Thank heavens. So here’s what’s happening this week…

There is an order going in tonight at 7:30 pm! If you would like to order online please use host code K6UY9JT2 to help me boost the rewards basket. If you prefer to order in person please contact me before 7:30 pm.

Just a reminder that my office hours are Monday through Saturday from 9:30 am – 7:30 pm.

Open Time at the Studio happens today.

The BOGO sale starts on the 1st! I figured I should explain. The BOGO (buy one get one) sale starts on May 1 and finishes on June 3.

On May 1 I email out the list of my personal retiring items to my team. On May 3 this list goes out via email to my VIP’s. And on May 5 this list is distributed to everyone. Each set of emails will go out at 6 am of the corresponding day. All items have not been reserved before and all are while supplies last. All are first come first serve.

If you are a visual person and prefer to shop in person you can do this on Monday, May 6 during Open Times.

So let’s say you pick $50 worth of retiring items. You are then committed to purchasing $50 or more from the new catalog. When the new catalog order is shipped and received I will pack your retiring items with the new order at no charge.

You will not receive your retiring items until after the new catalog order is placed on June 4. You will receive all items once the new catalog order ships and is received. If you change your mind please let me know ASAP as someone else may have been waiting for that retiring item. If you do not contact me with your new catalog order by Monday, June 3 at 7:30 pm then your retiring items will go back on the list available for someone else.

I also figured I should reiterate how the rewards program works since it is coming up on the end of the year. The program runs from July 1-June 30.  So the last day to earn rewards for this period is June 14.  The last day to redeem all of them is June 30.  Don’t worry, the basket in May will be bigger and then June’s even bigger.  So you have two more baskets to pick from for this year.

And if that’s not enough…

I will be at Desert Rebel on Friday from 2-5. Make sure to drop by and create for just $5 per crafty project.

Save the date for Card Class on Tuesday the 7th, Thursday the 9th, or Saturday the 11th. Invitations will be emailed shortly.

Happy Crafting!

P.S. Be looking on Tuesday’s Weekly Highlights email for the timing of the BOGO sale and a shopping day (in person) also.

Mentoring the next generation.

It’s Friendship Friday! This is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward. Today is the day that I say thank you. Thank you for your support and trusting me to lead this crafty group. Thank you for giving not only to me, but also to the community.

I bet you’re wondering what I am talking about. This morning the Rubber Rummage Sale was wrapped up. I collected, sold, and now donated. Thank you to those that brought product to sell and eventually donate. This year’s recipient was the PLUS program at the school district.

The PLUS program helps those students that have learning disabilities and also those that have gone through something traumatic or life-altering. This program allows them to learn in a non-traditional manner. Instead of a classroom setting all day they alternate between classwork and visual therapies. One day they might teach how to paint or another might be sewing. So now they can papercraft as well.

Who knows who next year’s recipient may be. Please keep your ears and eyes open throughout the year. I will ask for suggestions when the 5th Annual Rubber Rummage Sale is announced in February 2020. It will be here before we know it. So, for now, go make an impact no matter how small or big!

Happy Crafting!

With inky fingers,

Joni 🙂
