Stampin' Up!® Three on Thursday a day late

 Hello everyone,

You know how we all have those days where no matter what, we can't get everything done? Well, my Thursday was like that. I had to take my mom to the doctor and it's about a 2 hour drive. By the time I got home I was so tired I just couldn't do my Three on Thursday Live. 

I decided to do it this morning and boy things just didn't go as planned. I was demonstrating how to use alumnium foil but the foil was not cooperating at all. Please laugh along with me as I just said forget it, I will do it another day.

Watch the video to see how these projects go together.

Welcome to the August Demonstrator Training Blog Hop.

I am so happy that you have stopped by today, if this is your first stop don't forget to click the links below to see all the wonderful cards made by Stampin' Up! ® Demonstrators around the world. As demononstrators we are working on personal goals for our businesses and participating in the Blog Hop is a goal I have each month.

During the month of August, Stampin' Up! ® offers Sale a-bration! For every $50 or $100 order you can choose a Free Gift. Who doesn't like Free? I wanted to focus on some Designer Series Paper (DSP) that also includes a stamp set with a $100 purchase. These products are while supplies last so don't wait, place an order today to receive yours.

I designed my cards using two of the products offered in Sale a-bration, Pool Party & Soft Sea Foam Cards and Envelopes, and the Wonderful World DSP. The Cards and Envelopes were very popular and were removed from inventory in mid July. However, you can create your own backgrounds using paper and ink.  As of this post the Wonderful World set is still available with a qualifing purchase.

This card can be made with any DSP and is easy to mass produce to use for your Christmas cards. The possibilites are endless with this design.
