For All Things Mini Album

I'm very excited about my upcoming Super Saturday Holiday Edition Event! One of the the things you can make that day is a beautiful Mini Album. 

This beautiful mini album can hold many pictures. It would make the perfect holiday gift for anyone, but especially for those hard to buy for. Fill it with meaningful images and give it to a loved one. I think photos that are black and white or sepia will give the entire album a vintage, rich feel. 



Used in this album are the For All Things Stamp set and Under the Tree Specialty DSP. With your class fee, you will receive both. The paper will be scored and cut ready to be assembled. The only thing needed from you is adhesive and ink! If you attend the class in person, the ink will be provided for you. If you live out of town, I will provide you a list of ink colors and you can use them if you have them, order them, or use any ink you have that will be great substitutes. 


This album features lots of texture and added whimsy in the form of embellishments, die cuts and ribbon. Again, all included in your class fee.

For All Things Mini Album
This is just one of the classes offered at my Super Saturday event on October 25. You can choose to do just this class or several others.
The Super Saturday room will be open from 10-4 and you can come anytime during the day to create your album. Also offered that day are some really big raffle items (think brand new dies, framelits, and other tools form the current catalog!) munch on some yummy treats, get inspired by beautiful displays and visit with friends.

Receive the For All Things Mini Album Class in the mail- $43
Included: For All Things clear mount stamp set and all supplies needed to complete the album. Directions with color photos will also be provided. 
Kits are limited!

Stampin' Up Incentive Trip- Washington, D.C. Getaway 2014

I returned yesterday from the DC incentive trip and have lots of pictures to share with you! Because hubby and I had just gone to DC a few years ago, we decided it would be a great opportunity for me to take my oldest daughter and my mom for a girls weekend. And it was so special for the three of us to get away together! 

 We did lots of museums. This is Natural History Museum.


It was cold and rainy when we got there. But that didn't stop us from exploring the Mall as soon as we got there!

 

Mom even found some time to sketch!

My daughter was so excited to ride the subway. LOL... She preferred taxi's after the first day! (SPOILED!!)

Our hotel was beautiful! We stayed at the historic Mayflower Hotel, just blocks from the White House! 

They even had a candy bar in the evening for the kids (and grown ups!)

Cute table decorations at breakfast created by SU!

The second day we headed back to the mall on the trout bus and explored the monuments. The sun was out and it was BEAUTIFUL!
 






We headed to the National Bureau of Printing and Engraving next. It's great tour to see how money is printed! Ellie loved seeing the million dollar display and measuring herself in stacks of bills!

The next stop we made was at the Farmer's Market at the USDA. It was awesome and probably my favorite thing that day!




We ate a homemade ice cream sandwich there that was AMAZING!!! I can't even describe it to you other than it had salt on the outside that just made it over the top. I can't stop thinking about it.. LOL!

 We explored the National History Museum. Mom and I  loved it, but not sure my tween did... 

 

Plilow Gifts are always a highlight! If you don't know, Pillow Gifts are left in your room by SU each evening. It makes going back to the hotel ALOT of fun! The first night it was a box of DC Cupcakes.


The second night was my favorite! The upcoming starts kit!!! I can't wait to put this together1!



And the last night was a beautiful book about DC.


The last day, we got to tour the White House. Fun and a little scary! We had to be there at 8 am! Eek! But the city was so pretty on the way there.







We headed back to the Air and Space Museum to do the planetarium again. We LOVED it! And then, about sunset, we again walked the mall and got some GREAT pictures of all the monuments. My daughter loves taking pictures too.









It was a GREAT weekend and I am so blessed to be able to provide this for my family. Thank you Stampin' Up!!
