July Newsletter

Here is a copy of my july newsletter. The link is to the right if you'd like to see the pictures, but they are also in the slideshow from yesterday.
today i got all my CTMH cardstock sorted and put into bags so i can find each type easier. that took a good couple of hours! but it will help in the long run!

off to bed!

Happy Summer!

Hope all is well for everyone! We are back from Disney and finally getting back into the swing of things! Please take a minute to read this, lots of information in this newsletter!

There seems to be some confusion in regards to the Workshops on the Go. The cost you pay for the workshop covers a level 2 kit, the matching stickers, a workshop guide (with a brand new layout not found in any of our other scrapbooking guides) and matching embellishments for the projects. We do not use all the paper or embellishments during the workshop, and you take home whatever you do not use! I received a lot of questions about clarifying that information, so there you go! :)

There are still deals left in June to take advantage of the "Deal a Day"! Check out my website each day for the special deal! www.nikkid.myctmh.com

This newsletter contains information about July workshops, the DSN events for July and upcoming events I am planning (including a novice photography class to help you get the best pictures on your camera! check out below)

Also the opportunity to receive some free product from me!

I update my blog a couple of times a week, so check it out at www.nikkidscraftyblog.blogspot.com.

Upcoming events being planned for late summer and early fallCrops, Clubs and photography classes!
Crop: I will be planning a crop for late summer/early fall. If interested, please respond to me with whether a Friday night, or all day Saturday or Sunday works better. Many of you have been asking for one so I'd like to be able to schedule it when as many people can come as possible.

Cardmaking and Scrapbooking Clubs:
I'd like to see you all more!! Let's get the scrapbooking and card making clubs started again! I had to take a break b/c guard was getting pretty busy, but last month I resigned as the color guard instructor (after 11 years!) and now have plenty of time!
I'd like to do 5 month rotations. Membership between 5-10 people. Each month someone else will get to be the hostess and earn free hostess product, and we'll spend time each month getting you caught up on scrapbooking or cards! If interested, contact me for details. I'd like to start in August or September. I'd like to do seperate scrapbooking and card making ones, unless enough people are interested in joining a club doing both!

Photography classes:
I will also be planning a couple of simple photography classes in response to many of your questions/concerns about how to use your digital cameras or how simply to get better pictures taken (you do not have to be a scrapbooker to take these classes!)
It will be a 2 part series, the first being a lecture with tips, etc and the second will be a hands on in the park (perhaps as the leaves are changing, that will give us a nice backdrop for taking pictures) You will need to bring your camera and user manual to each class. I will be planning these for September and October. Space will be limited, so you will want to sign up quickly. Also, anyone who comes to 3 workshops between now and September will get attendance to the photography classes for FREE!!!

Free Product!

Anyone who books a home gathering between now and August 31st will receive a "goody bag" from me with free product! I will also offer this to anyone who gets a group of friends together to form a club to start in August!

Who doesnt like free product! book your gathering or get your club together today!!

As always, thank you for allowing me the opportunity to be your consultant and to show you the art of scrapbooking and cardmaking simplier, faster and easier!

Quarter Auction

Well we had the quarter auction last night and had a great time!  Had a little candy buffet for National Candy Month!  I had a great training Wednesday night facilitated by one of my uplines in Hawaii!  We had 5 different speakers, and the training was great!

We’ll be spending the rest of the weekend getting ready to leave!  Kayley and I have to be at the airport at 6 PM Sunday.  Chris and the band leave on the bus at 1 PM on Monday and drive all day/night so we’ll meet up with them when they get off the bus Tuesday morning at the Animal Kingdom.

Here are a few pics from the quarter auction last night!  Enjoy! If I pay for internet access from Disney I’ll post some updates otherwise I’ll post when I get home! DSN 021 DSN 007 DSN 006 DSN 001

Getting ready for the quarter auction and vacation!

I made a few projects for the quarter auction.  Disney themed of course! Using the last of the Giggles and Grins paper I had!  Hopefully they go over well. I made a 6X6 my creations fold out album and altered a small canvas for a picture and altered a pen.  I wanted to make an autograph book but I’m not sure I have enough paper left so I’ll have to try that tomorrow!

We leave for Disney on Sunday night!  Can’t wait even though it will be crowded being the summer time.  Mom is picking Kayley and I up from the Orlando airport Sunday night and hanging out with us most of the day on Monday.   Chris leaves Monday afternoon with the band taking the bus down.

We have so much to get done before we leave! So here’s hoping we get everything done! 

Have a good week!  from nikki's iphone 027 from nikki's iphone 026 from nikki's iphone 028
