Mass Mailings!

Ok so this was the back of my car today! This was round 2. The first round was Saturday. I totally spaced out on the fact that yesterday was a holiday. I had planned on doing mass mailings. What are they thinking closing the post office for a holiday? Are they crazy?!

This is only part of it. There are many more in the back seat too! People really look at you funny when you go into the post office with this many boxes! Thankfully most of these I had prelabeled at home and just needed to drop them off.

So if you payed by paypal you should have received a confirmation email of the mailing. Not all of the paypal boxes were sent this way but the majority was. There were a few that the online shipping thing didn't like so I had to do them at the post office.

This covers just about everyone. There are a couple that I am still trying to iron a few kinks out of. So hopefully in the next day or so you should be receiving your paper. I hope to hear good things when you receive it!

And I would like to say thank you to everyone for joining and being so patient while I counted and boxed this all up. Enjoy!

Paper update

Just a quick update, sorry to keep everyone waiting. I have been working on packaging and stuffing boxes. This is taking longer than I had anticipated!

I am hoping to have most all of the boxes in the mail by tomorrow morning. I will post again as soon as they are gone!

Thanks again.

It's here!!!!

I just wanted to make a quick post and let everyone know that the paper is in. I received it yesterday. I am in the process of packaging it up and hope to have boxes going out by tomorrow!

It is so pretty! I love looking at the shimmer of it, it reflects the light so well.

I will post again once boxes are mailed. Thanks again to everyone for joining!

Update on Shimmery Paper

I just wanted to let everyone know that I received word yesterday that I should have the paper on Monday.

Hopefully, if all goes well and it definitely gets in on Monday then I will be able to start sending packages out mid week next week.

Just wanted to keep everyone up to date.

Also, I only have a few spots left before I will be closing it out.

Have a great Saturday!

So Very

So very sweet! I like these 2 sets so much, and the flowers are awesome to work with when watercoloring.
I purchased some fabriano cards and just had to use them right away. This was my first attempt. It could use a little improvement but I was happy with the way it turned out. I used Not Quite Navy and Always Artichoke Watercolor crayons on the flowers. Misted them slightly then stamped, I repeated this several times. Sponged the edges with Not Quite Navy and added the ribbon bow.
I really thought that I would have a hard time not layering this up. Much to my surprise, I was quite happy when I stamped on it and thought that 'hey it really is ok with just one layer'. These cards are really very pretty!

Just wanted to make a quick post and let everyone know that I ordered the paper today!! It should be about 5 to 7 days to get to me. Then I will be boxing it up!

Yipee! Almost here! I love this stuff I can't quit using it now. My sample pieces are just about gone!

Shimmery paper update

Just wanted to post a quick update. Not a lot of new information at this point. I have filled the first share for the white and opened a second one. I also opened the Vanilla share after getting several requests for it too.

The vanilla and white are filling quickly. I am now waiting on payments. I hope to be able to place the order on Monday, I may have to wait until Tuesday depending on the payments I receive.

If you have responded to me and not heard back from me please try again. At this point I have responded to all emails that I have received.

Thank you everyone for joining.

And here is a little teaser that I made with some of the samples that I had. The small stamped piece is the shimmery paper!

Shimmery Vanilla Card

Well, I had already posted a card before I opened the paper share that used the White shimmery paper. So, I decided to go ahead and do one with the vanilla so everyone could see it. It is dark so my picture is a little washed out from the flash but I still wanted to post it.

There are two views here. One shows the color a little better the other shows the shimmer better.

I also used bravo burgundy and always artichoke. Bravo ink on the butterfly and versamark on the background. Also got to use one of my new beautiful primas and placed a heart button in the center. The ribbon is ivory and the match for bravo burgundy from Jody's ribbon swap. They match wonderfully!

Shimmery Vanilla Paper ??

Sound yummy? You are not alone, I have been getting requests for shimmery vanilla paper. It is a close match to Very Vanilla Paper.

I can order this paper at the same time I order the Shimmery White and you can add on packs of 50 to your order for $12.00 each or packs of 25 for $6.50 and pay no extra shipping. I will ship in your existing box, for those who have chosen the envelope you can upgrade to the box for just $4.00 more.

I have been asked how many sheets of paper will fit in a flat rate box. I have looked into it and 300 sheets will fit into the flat rate 8.10 box.

I now need to see if there are enough interested participants to add the vanilla shimmery paper to my order. If you are interested in this option please email me at cpw3431@verizon.net and let me know the quantity that you are interested in. Once the group has filled I will send out a mass email with payment total and options.

The shimmery white group 1 has filled and I am currently filling group 2.
