Saleabration Bingo was a Blast!!!

Last week , here in Wisconsin we had unseasonably warm days ….60 degrees in February…almost unheard of…it was great!  But then by the end of the week…temps dropped and we had big winds, sleet, hail, thunder, snow and ice all in one day… last Friday!  And of course that day was my Saleabration Bingo night.  So I was worried all day, since I had ladies coming in from out of town  and the driving was terrible….should I cancel????
But then I got an email from 3 of the gals coming from out of town just saying…”neither snow , nor sleet, nor rain…..” and I knew then Bingo Night was on!!
We had a great time!!  Here are some pictures of the fun!!
Goodie Bag for everyone who came!
It contained Cool Treats DSP, Metallic and Pool Party  Ribbons ,Sprinkle Embellishments and chocolate of course!
Here was everyone's place setting!
My Studio set for only 15 people....Bingo signup filled up within 24 hours!!
Waiting for people to come...I was actually ready and waiting!!!
Bingo Prizes and Door Prizes
Time for Make and Takes .  I will post the make and take pics tomorrow!!
More Make and Takes and time to snack!!!

Bring a snack...get an extra door prize ticket!!  Thank you everyone for sharing your goodies!!

Winner being photo bombed!!

So there were door prizes and bingo prizes galore!!  I missed taking some pictures…sorry Becky who won the $50 shopping Spree door prize!!  Several people won twice or three times!!  Lucky!  But even if you didn't win a Bingo or door still got a small gift!!
Thank you so much to everyone who braved the weather and came to Bingo!!!  And thank you for the nice comments!!

Cathy saidJust wanted to tell you we all had a blast at Bingo. Thanks for everything. I used some of the DSP in the pack you gave us already. Can't wait for the  next one.”

Looks like fun right???  There will be another Bingo Night coming up in May or June!! Watch for it!! Sign up for my email newsletter so you can be the first to hear about the next Bingo night  and other fun events we have at my Water City Stamping Studio!!

Window Shopping

Here is a darling bundle that sometimes goes un-noticed.  The Window Shopping Stamp Set along with the Window Box Framelits has countless of possibilities.   

Window Shopping Wood-Mount Bundle

144742 Wood $54.75      144743 Clear $50.25
Bundle and save! Buy these two coordinating products and save 10%.
Window Shopping Wood-Mount Stamp Set
All the patterns and words you've been thinking, but didn't have a stamp to express. They're truly craftacular ... and we don't use that word very often, so you know we really mean it this time.
* Quantity: 10 rubber stamps
* Wood blocks included
Window Box Thinlits Dies
Create die-cut gift boxes and party favors in seconds with Thinlits dies and the Big Shot.
* 9 dies
* Largest image: 6" x 5-9/16" (15.2 x 14.1 cm)
* Use with Big Shot
* Use Precision Base Plate with detailed images
One of my favorite pieces is this pretty framelit that not only makes a lovely window in the box, but also one of my favorite cards.  This is a perfect project for my Stamp Club on Monday!

I wanted to color this in precisely, but was struggling how to achieve this neatly….then I thought Vellum!!!  So I cut my “window”out from Whisper White and stuck a square of Vellum Cardstock on the back.  Then colored in on the back of the vellum with our Many Marvelous Markers…and marvelous they are!!  Love them!!! 
Calypso Coral, Wild Wasabi, Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight Markers


Add a square of Whisper White on the back of the Vellum Cardstock to keep the colors bright and vivid! Complete your card with layers, ribbons and pearls and you have a lovely card for any occasion!!
Don’t forget…if you order this bundle now…you will be able to choose a FREE product from our awesome Saleabration!!!  Check it out here!!
And this is only the beginning…stay tuned for more Window Shopping creations!!  Too fun!

until next time…..
Take care and Happy Stamping!!
