I hope this posts ok, I'm still trying to figure out why my blog editor won't work. It's been so frustrating!

December Cards Class

Sorry for the delay on this information. Blogger has become increasingly frustrating for me to use. I did quite a bit of research on it this morning and it appears that I'm not the only one having problems. For some reason, it would not let me post ANYTHING for days now. I just kept getting a message saying the site was loading, and yet, it never quite finished :( And, I'm sorry for the way this keeps lumping everything together, but I'm not able to edit anything once I get it typed in!

Maybe Santa will bring me a new Blog for Christmas?

Anyway, I want to welcome 2 new Demonstrators to my downline. Andrea West from Truth or Consequences, NM has decided to take the plunge and join Stampin' Up! And, she was so excited about her new venture that she talked her friend, Trenna Hess from Elephant Butte, NM into signing on under her right away! Now that's what friends are for, right?! I just know they're going to do great :) Welcome aboard, Andrea and Trenna!

------------------------December Cards Class-------------------------------
Wednesday Evening, December 1st from 7 to 9 pm
*OR* Thursday Morning, December 2nd from 10am to Noon
Cost: $18 for attendees / $26 for class kit

December's cards are so cute. You'll be able to use them for Holiday Thank You's, Birthdays or actual Christmas Cards. We'll make 3 each of 4 different cards including an adorable Punch-Art Cardinal on a 'snowy' background, the Bleach-Spritz Snowflake card that many of you have admired in my stamp room (it's the Night of Navy card with the snowflakes and rhinestones), a Holiday Cupcake card, and a beautiful sponged silhouette card. Envelopes are included, please bring scissors and adhesive with you. RSVP to hold your spot.

Now, I know that several of you mentioned wanting to come to this class, but I actually only have 3 people signed up so far. They are: Cyndi G, Betsy C, and Tina S. If you're planning to join us, would you please send me an email to make sure I have your kit prepared when you arrive? Thanks so much :)

Have a great day!

It's really never too early to be thinking about Christmas is it?  All of the stores have Christmas items in them already, and, while I do think it's a bit early to be purchasing decorations, I don't believe it's too early to make some wonderful, hand-stamped Christmas Cards!  YOU design your class by choosing the cards you want to make. You'll make TEN of each card that you choose, envelopes are included. You can make 10, 20, or 1000, it just depends on how many you want! Bring your own adhesive (and plenty of refills too, it takes a lot of glue to put together this many cards!) and bring your own scissors. All other supplies, fun, laughter, doorprizes and snacks will be included. You can come and go as you please during the times listed. If you have limited time, you can come and stamp all 10, put one together and then take the rest home to finish at your leisure! Payment is due with registration, but no later than Friday, October 29th. After that, I may not have enough supplies on hand and I won't have time to order more.

Email me at terri.meehan@att.net  or call 614-777-9288 to make registration / payment arrangements. Thanks!

Christmas Cards are coming!

Sorry to be away so long.  My mother-in-law passed away a week ago Sunday, surrounded by most of her family.  Things were pretty crazy around here last week, we were the gathering spot each day and night for meals and lots of reminiscing.  It was great to see everyone in the family and get to spend so much time with them, but it's sad that it took the death of someone so important to everyone to make it happen!  She obviously touched a lot of lives and I'm very grateful to her for the family and friends that she gathered around her.  She'll be missed, that's for sure :(

In spite of being creatively challenged lately, I think she must have been looking over my shoulder yesterday.  Cards that I had been struggling with for days suddenly came together and I'm happy to say that I was able to get samples made for all of the cards I'll be offering at my Christmas Card Camp.  The date is Sunday, November 7th, from 1 to approx. 6 pm.  Mark your calendar and save the date.  I've got a class this morning and then I'll be back on here to post pictures from that, and a couple of other classes.

Don't put off telling your loved ones how special they are to you, life is short!

Out of touch for a few days...

Some of you know that my Mother-in-law, Theresa, has struggled with Alzheimer's for the last few years.  Her health has been deteriorating over the last several weeks and she took a turn for the worse yesterday.  We don't expect her to live through the day.  So, it doesn't look like I'll be able to post much for the next few days.  Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers, our biggest hope and wish right now is that she remain peaceful and pain-free right up to the end.  We also have a lot of family members coming in from out of town (California, Florida, New York) and we're praying for safe travels for them (My husband, Tim, is one of 7 children so it's a pretty big family!)

Take care, and give your loved ones an extra hug and kiss today!

Terri :)

Do my pictures look weird to you?

I don't know what the deal is with my photos lately!  For some reason they're getting chopped off when I go in to view the blog.  Do they look that way to everyone?  They look fine when I put them into the post and I didn't realize they looked different until I went in and looked at my blog without signing on as adminstrator...

If they look weird to you all would you let me know and I'll try to figure out what the problem is, get it fixed, and reload the pictures.  Thanks!

My October Cards Class (see prior post) is almost full!  I only have 4 spaces / kits left.  Please let me know right away if you'd like to join us.  Here are the ladies I have registered so far:

10-4 Good Buddy!

Yes, today's 10/4 and everytime I think about that I'm reminded of a few years during my childhood when my mom and dad were BIG into CB's.  I can't remember what I did last week, but I can still remember our call letters (KCD8739) that we used to identify ourselves on the radio.  And I can remember our CB Handles (names) too:  Dad was Red Apple because he drove a Red Chevy Van, Mom was the Avon Lady (I think you can figure that one out), my brother was Wang Fang (I don't know...), I was Crab Apple (referring both to my ever-so-sunny disposition AND the fact that I was my father's daughter), and my sister was Little Red.  Ha-ha, those were some very interesting years, indeed!

But there I go again, digressing.  I'm sure Wendie's out there shaking her head. Aren't ya, Wendie?!

Today's the day I promised to tell you why YOU should join the Stampin' Up! Family of Demonstrators and sign on with me.  I spent the weekend narrowing it down to my top 10 favorite reasons right now.  Ask me next week and I'll probably have new ones :)  Here they are:

1) 20% (OR MORE) Discount on every order!

2) You stamp anyway, why not do something to help offset your costs? 

3) Through Oct 19th you can get a free Crafter's Tote in the Greenhouse Gala Print (39.95 value)

4) Starter kits are inexpensive and include everything you need to get started at a great discount!

5) 30 % off your first order placed as a demonstrator.

6) Make new friends by sharing something you LOVE!

7) Order from new Mini Catalogs a full month before everyone else can!

8) Travel the country with your friends, fellow demonstrators, for Incentive Trips, Conventions and Regional Seminars!

9) Write off your expenses (travel, supplies, etc.) on your taxes :)  (Sorry, Uncle Sam!)

10) Sign up now and you'll receive a stamp set from the Occasions 2011 Mini Catalog before it's available to everyone else, absolutely free! (I hope to make it back in here to post all the details on this promotion, but just in case I don't, ask me :)

Whew!  That's quite a list and I know I left out lots but I would be so happy to share more information with you.  I pride myself on not being pushy, so I'll give you the information you need to need to make a decision that's right for you.  We have a large group here in the Central Ohio area, we get together a couple of times a quarter -at least- to stamp, have meetings, etc.  And we'd love to have you join us!

Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to schedule a time to get together and talk about this wonderful opportunity!

Baltimore, MD Regional Swap Card

Well, here it is.  My swap card for the Baltimore, MD Stampin' Up! Regional Seminar.  I made 50 of these to swap with other SU! Demonstrators at the seminar which means that I'll be bringing home 49 brand new, never been seen before card samples for us to drool over.  AND, we're getting the Day of Gratitude stamp set free for attending today.  AND, we're doing Make & Takes with it too.  How much more wonderful can this day get?!

Hope your day is wonderful too!

Ps- Don't forget to sign up for the October Cards Class if you haven't already!  See post from 9/27 for pics and details.


If the SHOE fits...

Well, Mindy has been at it again.  She had a personalized stamp made that reads "If the SHOE fits..." and used it on this adorable card.  It makes me laugh everytime I look at it :)  And her attention to detail is beyond amazing.  I notice something different everytime I look at this card!

Speaking of Mindy, I'm spending the weekend at her place in Virginia (in her new stamp room, no less!) stamping and hanging out with the girls.  We're heading up to a Stampin' Up! Regional Seminar in Baltimore, MD in the morning.  It's just one of many fabulous perks of being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.  Want to hear about the rest?  Stop in on Monday and I'll share more with you. I hope to post some pictures from our weekend, too.  In the meantime, there will still be posts tomorrow and Sunday (automated since I may not have access to the internet). 

See you next week!

Fabulous Fleece Flowers

Wednesday Night's Sizzix club made a cute little bucket decorated with Leaves #2 decor elements die-cuts and then we used the Circles #2 Die and the Leaves #2, Antique Brads, a thread & needle, some hot glue, a pin back and some Polar Fleece to make these sweet little Fleece Flowers!

Aren't they cute?  And so super easy!  Purchase both the Circles #2 and Leaves #2 Dies this month from me for just $31.90 and I'll teach you how to make one of these flowers in a quick little one-on-one class!  Email  or call me to take me up on my offer :)

Isn't this a cute little mushroom pincushion?  Big Thanks go out to Hope Spriggs who not only made them for several of her friends that were attending last weeks class, but sent one along for me too!  I love it :)

Happy Birthday Corwyn!

24 Years ago today, after a mere 42 hours of hard labor, I became a mom for the first time. Corwyn, I hope you have a very Happy 24th Birthday. I Love You!

Pictured above are more of the mini Thank You notes waiting to be delivered with my latest customer orders. Anyone want more details on these?


Terri :)


Look what Mindy did!

I know this is a day late, but I think you'll agree that it's worth the wait. Mindy Gray made this adorable little basket and trio of 3x3 Cards that fit inside. Made with punches, isn't it too stinking cute?!

Leave a comment for Mindy if you'd like, I'm pretty sure she stalks my blog, LOL!

Have a great day,



Happy Labor Day Weekend

Hello Girls- Just wanted to let you know that I'll be back on Tuesday with more ideas. I'm looking forward to spending lots of time with my family this weekend. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I'll 'see' you on the flipside!

Oh!... And just a reminder that there is still time to sign up for the HandKnit Class (I still have 3 spaces available) and the Love Letter Bags & Tote Class, and of course, the Sizzix Club. Speaking of the Sizzix Club, I should have the examples ready to post this week sometime so be sure you check back.

Take care!
Terri :)


September Cards Classes today...

No real post today, I'll be teaching my September Cards class here this morning and then we have our First Thursday Afternoon Stamper's Club meeting here later this afternoon. Last night was fun, it's nice to have small classes every now and then so I get to spend more time with everyone. Everyone's cards turned out beautiful.

Hope you have a great day, I KNOW I will !

Terri :)


Holiday Mini Catalog

Sorry, I totally should have put a link to the new catalog in my post from earlier. Well, here it is. Some of you already received them in the mail, but, if you didn't, let me know the next time you stop by for a class and I'll make sure you get one of your very own! Until then, you can check it out online here:

If your wish list is incredibly long (like mine was!) and you'd like to receive a discount on your purchases, you should check into being a demonstrator. I'd be happy to give you any information you need to get you started and we have a large group here in the Central Ohio area that you'd be a part of. AND, Stampin' Up! is offering a free Craft Tote in the Greenhouse Gala pattern for new demonstrators who sign up between now and October 18th! http://www.stampinup.net/esuite/home/terrimeehanstamps/promotions

Let me know if you have any questions,

Brand New! Holiday Mini Catalog 2010

Yippee! It's September 1st which means you can now order from the Holiday Mini Catalog. Stampin' Up! never fails to amaze with their new products. Every catalog is more awesome than the one before and this is definitely no exception!

The project I'm showing today uses two brand new products from the catalog: the beautifully victorian, Bells & Boughs stamp set and the Candy Wrapper Bigz L Die for the Sizzix Bigshot. Isn't it sweet?

Watch for more ideas coming from this wonderful catalog!

Have a wonderful September 1st!

Terri :)


I feel so Wicked!

I was lucky enough to get to see Wicked on Sunday night with my little sister Mary. We had a blast before, during AND after the show. We always keep each other laughing, it was a really fun evening. The show was awesome as well and, as I was looking through my stamp room for things I hadn't shared with you yet, I came across this card. It was made by my friend, Jen Slater. Jen is a huge Wicked fan and got to see it THREE times while it was in town. Lucky girl :)

Wasn't it clever of her to only ink up and stamp the word "Wicked" from the stamp on the left? I'm assuming she did this with a Stampin' Write Marker... The card uses a couple of items I want to call attention to: Wicked Cool stamp set from page 23 in the IB&C (current Idea Book & Catalog) and the Raven 1/2" Lace Trim is in our new Holiday Mini Catalog that you can order from on September 1st. Oh WOW, that's tomorrow already, isn't it?!?! Is that even possible?

Well, I hope you enjoy the card. Feel free to post comments for Jen, I think this card is Wicked Cute!!! (See what I mean? I'm cracking myself up right now! LOL!) Thanks Jen!

Have a great day,

Terri :)

Riley says...

Here's a picture of my Stamping 'Helper' Riley! He was rather bored and a little irritated with me this morning when I insisted on taking his picture with a Tiara on. LOL! He looks so cute in it, but doesn't really like wearing it (Seriously, what BOY, dog or human would?). First he said "Mom, PLEASE stop taking crazy pictures of me in this tiara. Do you want all the other dogs to think I'm a sissy?" And then later he said to be sure to remind you that TODAY is the last day to order from the Summer Mini Catalog. Gotta love a dog that's SO into Stampin' Up! Ha, ha! Thanks to my friend Terri who brought me several of these cute little Tiara combs last week. She knows I like to play Diva when I'm stamping (even if Riley doesn't!).

But really... Don't miss out on all the seriously cute sets that didn't make it into the Catalog this year. This is the last chance for all of the following items (listed in the order they appear in the mini catalog):

It's the Thought - Hostess Level 1

Punched Posies - Hostess Level 2

Pedaling Past (retro bikes)

Sweet Scoops (ice cream, anyone?)

In a Word

Rough Type

Watercolor Trio

Favorite Thoughts

Blissful Bride

Bouquet Bunch (remember that sweet little squirrel?)

A Little Bit of Magic (do you believe in Faeries?)

Sentimental Journey

Go, Graduate (Congratulations, Graduate! go get a job.)

First Day

Tropical Party (used in my Tropical Mini Cards post from last week)

Island Oasis Designer Series Paper

July Fourth

Red, White & Blue Jumbo Stampin' Around Wheel

King of the Grill

All a Flutter (single Butterfly)

Don't wait, email or call me today to place your last chance order!

Hope your day is wonderful!

1/8" Taffeta & 1/2" Stitched-Poly Ribbon Buys

For a Limited Time, I'm offering the following Group Buys:

Q: Wait, what exactly is a Group Buy?
A: It's where a group of people go together to purchase a lot of product that would normally cost them alot of money and give them way more product than they could personally use, or need. By splitting up the product, everyone gets a smaller amount and spends a lot less money. This is a great way to get a variety of product for a small price!

1/8" Taffeta Ribbon Group Buy
Cost: $7.00 / share

Each share will include a total of 13 yards of the 1/8" Taffeta Ribbons. That's ONE YARD EACH of the following colors: Whisper White, Very Vanilla, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Pretty in Pink, Real Red, Rich Razzleberry, Night of Navy, Marina Mist, Certainly Celery, Old Olive, Early Espresso & Basic Black. These ribbons are shown on page 191 of the current Idea Book & Catalog. It would cost you $90.83 if you were to purchase the full amount of ribbon on these 13 spools!
1/2" Stitched-Poly Ribbon Group Buy
Cost: $3 / share
Each share will include a total of 5 yards of the 1/2" Stitched-Poly Ribbons. That's ONE YARD EACH of the following colors: Blushing Bride, Peach Parfait, Poppy Parade, Concord Crush & Pear Pizzazz. The ribbons are shown on page 190 of the current IB&C. If you were to purchase the full spools separately, you'd spend $52.55 for all 5 spools!
Call or email me to take advantage of either of these Group Buys. Available only until I fill 2 groups or September 15th, whichever comes first. Don't miss out!
phone: 614-777-9288

A: At our first meeting we'll draw numbers, when your number is chosen you'll choose from the months that are still available.

Q: What if I can't make it to the meeting one month?

A: You'll still be responsible for placing an order, prior to the meeting so we can get the orders placed right away. It's not fair to your other club members if their orders are held up to wait for yours. You can contact me and place the order over the phone and either place it on a credit card or drop off a check to me.

Q: If I don't make it to a meeting, will I still get my Make & Take projects?

A: You'll receive the packet, but your projects will not be completed.

Q: What kind of snacks and drinks will I need to bring?

A: Keep it simple! Bottles of Water and chocolates or small finger foods are sufficient. Remember, we'll be busy stamping so food is not the focal point!

Q: Why do I need to place an order during my month as Hostess?

A: Because the club benefits depend on each and every member placing an order to get to the minimum workshop amount ($150 total), you won't be able to receive Hostess Benefits if you don't place an order during your hostess month.

Q: Can I get extra orders during my Hostess Month?

A: Absolutely! You can collect outside orders, OR invite others to join us for the meeting during your month. As long as they place a $25 order, they'll get to make the projects as well! Extra orders will increase your Hostess Benefits (see complete chart on page 9 of the 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalog).

So, are you ready to sign up yet? Contact me if you have other questions, or to sign up for one of the groups above. I am open to starting other clubs if you have a specific day / time that you're available, just ask!

Tropical Mini Thank You's!

These are some sweet little Thank You notes that I whipped up recently for my customer orders. I was inspired by one of the ladies in my group, Dawn Buck, who had created a wonderful ensemble of cards in a tote using the same set. I started with Old Olive 3x3 note cards (hand-cut, I can get 8 of these out of a piece of 12x12 cardstock!), and added the Palm Leaf print paper from the Island Oasis Designer Series Papers in the Summer Mini Catalog (these items are only available through August 31st!) cut to 2-7/8" square. Next I colored the Palm Tree stamp from Tropical Party Stamp Set (Summer Mini Catalog also) with Old Olive and Early Espresso Stampin' Write Markers and stamped onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock cut to 1-3/4" x 2-1/2". Palm Fronds from the same set were stamped in Old Olive at the bottom. Next I took a Stampin' Sponge and sponged Peach Parfait and Tempting Turquoise inks to cover up most of the white cardstock. I think this is the step that totally transformed these images and made them look like a tropical postcard! (Dawn did this to her items too, she's a genius!)

I mounted the finished image onto a piece of Old Olive Cardstock cut to 1-7/8" by 2-5/8" and glued it down to the left-hand side of the front of the card. To finish I stamped Thank You on the front right-hand side in Early Espresso ink. (Thank You is from the set Curly Cute from the current catalog). These little notes fit into our 3x3 envelopes (which, of course, I also stamped :)) These are perfect for little tuck-in notes, but alas, the Post Office will NOT deliver them... Just so ya know!

You can only order the Tropical Party Stamp set in either Wood Mount or Clear Mount, and the Island Oasis DSP through Aug 31st. All other items are in the 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalog. See complete item list below:

The classes are coming, the classes are coming!

Whew, the kids just left and I just didn't want to miss a single moment with them while they were here. For those of you who don't know, here's the history...

My oldest son is in the Air Force and he, and his wife and son have been stationed out in Hawaii for the last 3 years. This makes for one unhappy Grandma that didn't get to spend nearly enough time with my grandson (or the kids either, for that matter!)

On February 1st, my son reported for tech school in Biloxi, MS and my daughter-in-law and grandson reported here, to Ohio, to spend some much needed catch-up time with all of us. They ended up spending a lot of time here, but they left on April 19th to report to his next duty station in Nebraska. It was a whirlwind at the end, especially those last four days when my son was home too. Now they're gone though, and it's time to get back to business. I've got lots of classes cooking (so to speak...)

Did you know that rainy days make great creative days? I plan to take full advantage of the rain today and stamp, stamp, stamp! Hopefully you can do something creative too!

Check back tomorrow morning and you'll see all the details about my May Stampin' Up! classes.
See you then :)



April Card Class Info...

Sorry that I've been MIA for the last couple of weeks. It wasn't intentional, but I had to squeeze in every moment I could with my Grandson. They'll be leaving on Monday to head out to Nebraska. I know that's not quite as far away as Hawaii, but it's still not going to be the same as having him right here...

Here's the info for the April Cards Class. Sorry about the lack of photos, I just haven't been able to get them taken and posted.

April Cards Class
Thursday, April 22nd: Morning Class from 10am to Noon *OR* Evening Class from 7 to 9pm. *PLEASE Note: Both classes ARE on Thursday this week, just didn't want to confuse anyone*

I hope you all have a great weekend, I'm going to spend lot's of cuddle time with my little guy and see you next week!


SCC2 Elements of Style Card

Here's my first card of the week with the colors from yesterday's color challenge. I really like how 'Spring-y' the colors are :) The second picture above shows a little of the depth behind the phrase where I used the Stampin' Dimensionals. The background was created by using markers directly onto the stamp; Certainly Celery vines, Real Red flowers and So Saffron flower centers. I stamped it randomly all over the front, then I cleaned off my stamp and inked it up with Bashful Blue, stamped it off once and then continued to stamp all over the background again. The ribbon got a little lost so I wrapped it around the card twice to make it stand out a little better.
The stamp set used is one that we were given at Leadership in January. It's called Elements of Style and it'll be available for purchase beginning May 1st. I really love it. The phrase is a little hard to read in this picture, but it says "Life is a matter of moments". Sweet, eh?

Products used:
Stamps: Elements of Style (Item #118611. Remember, this won't be available until May 1st.)

Cardstock: Kraft (102125), Real Red (102482), Whisper White (100730)

Classic Ink Pad: Bashful Blue ( 105209)
Stampin' Write Markers: Certainly Celery (105106), Real Red (100052), So Saffron (105114)

Other: 3/16" Red Gingham Ribbon (104832), Modern Label Punch (116630), Sizzix Punch Windows Magnetic Movers & Shapers (115953), Stampin' Dimensionals (104430), and Soft Subtles Brads (106954) I also used, again, the Sale-a-Bration Scallop Trim Border Punch (118402) that's only available for 2 more days FREE with a $50 merchandise purchase.
Thanks for looking, and don't forget to let me know if you make something with this color scheme!
Terri :)


Sunday Color Challenge #2

Guess what I did yesterday? I stopped in at Old Navy and purchased 5 new pair of flip-flops. So, Mother Nature... If you're listening, my toes are now ready for warm weather. Got it? Good! Ha, ha!

I had such a great time playing with last week's colors, so I decided to go ahead and do it again this week! I was inspired by some yarn that I'm knitting into a dishcloth right now. It actually has Red, White, Yellow and Kraft fibers in it. I wanted a little bit more variety so I added Bashful Blue and Certainly Celery ( 'cause you KNOW how I love Certainly Celery! :) And, c'mon, you *know* you want to play along. Send me a link to your blog (put it into the comments section) or a picture of your creations via email to terri.meehan@att.net and I'll show them off for you!

In case you were wondering, I've been able to put together the pictures for my color challenges using Stampin' Up!'s My Digital Studio software. I absolutely love this software!!! I also use it for my blog headers. Hmmmmm, speaking of which, I think I'm due for a new one and this week's Color Challenge colors would be SO 'Me'!

There are so many things that can be done with this software and I've been thinking about putting together some classes on how to scrapbook and put together other projects with it. Do me a favor? Would you let me know if that's something that interests you? Thanks!

Hope the rest of your weekend is wonderful, and maybe, if you have a few spare moments, you can do something creative. I promise, it's good for the soul!



Happy Saturday! Well, my husband decided to take yesterday off and, since my youngest was on Spring Break this past week, we spent the day with him. Took him out to lunch and then basically ran errands and took care of doctor's appointments the rest of the day. Oh, and we got Riley bathed and shaved. He must like it because he's been practically prancing around here ever since we got him home last night. He looks so cute! I got before and after pictures and I'm planning on doing a "Hairy to Handsome" page. Sad that I'm planning pages for the dog's photos and I'm still way behind on the kids. Don't you think? :) Oh, and don't think I didn't have to fight for every picture. The dog is as bad as the kids... they all HATE having their picture taken by the 'Mom-arazzi"!

So today's project is a little matchbook that holds a clippy made with my extra Beautiful Wings butterflies. In the first picture you can see it closed, and the envelope it fits into is the 3x3 envelope from Stampin' Up! (Love these, they're great for little gift enclosures!). Second picture shows the matchbook open with the clip positioned inside. And, the third picture better shows you what the clip looks like. Basically it's just a large paper clip, decorated so that it can brighten someone's day :)
