QuicKutz Club Event at Scrappin' In The Hills

Hello Again!

I want to let everyone know that I will be at Scrappin' in the Hills in Anaheim on Wednesday, October 7th for their QK Club Meeting. I will be doing a Make-n-take that anyone can participate in - you do not have to be part of the QK club - from 6-8 pm. I'm using the Accordion Border die and creating a little "Thankful" album. I will also be using Tattered Angels and QK shapes as masks. I am planning on using the QK new release (super cute!) but my sample doesn't have the new release on it yet . . . you just have to wait a little longer . . . I'll post a pic of it now and then again when I add the super cute, super fun release! I used BoBunny paper (which I LOVE!) and, of course, used the Cookie Cutter "Thanksgiving" die but broke it down so that I spelled out "Give Thanks". I thought this would be cute to put at each guests space at the Thanksgiving dinner table. You could either add pictures from last Thanksgiving or let them take it home and add the pictures from this Thanksgiving. It's very easy and simple to recreate! I hope that you enjoy!

Thanks for reading!

My first Blog on the QK Blog! Yahoo!

I almost feel famous - like in a strange Y-list way, far-far away from A-list. Not that I expect anyone to stop me on the street and say, "Are you Andrea Yokley-Jessup? The QK Ambassador who blogged on Wednesday?" - although I'd be beyond stoked if that did happen! Nor do I expect to see an unflattering picture of me on TMZ - like in my sweats grocery shopping. But, I almost feel like I've had my Coming Out Ball in the Scrapbook Society! But I've realized that since I gave people a link on the QK Blog to check out my own Blog that I must actually blog more frequently than once every 2 weeks! So, let me start now! I'm going to share a couple of projects that I've recently completed - a girly card that I absolutely LOVE! I love the Cloud9 paper, I still love the Heidi Swapp Ghost Shapes - heart and, of course, the QK crown! I just think that this card, all be it super easy, is super cute! Also, I made a Halloween mini-album. It's 6x6 in and on the cover I used the QK Cloud border as a mask and then chalked around the edges and repeated this all over the background paper to give it a spooky look. I also used the QK Graveyard and Bats along with the Crystal Ball and Ghost dies - I LOVE the Crystal Ball - I just think so original and fun!

Hope you like these projects! I'll try to post more soon- you can also check out my QK blog at!

Hope you all have a beautiful Thursday evening!

Still Ambassadoring

Last Friday I experienced my first "Webinar" with QuicKutz regarding the Ambassador program that they've started. The meeting was supposed to start at 2 pm PST so my Bro-in-Law came over to watch Adam @ 1:45, he helped me figure out what the heck a "Webinar" was so that I didn't feel totally laime and then he left for greener pastures, Sesame Street pastures to be specific, so I could be a very important, technically advanced Ambassador! I watched a nice PowerPoint presentation for about 45 minutes with the lady in the phone repeating in my ear "Please stay on the line. You're webinar will begin shortly." Then, all of a sudden I saw on the IM board from QK "Is anyone out there?" "Can anyone hear us?" Hmmm, that would be a no. So, I felt really bad for Andrea S. from QK who'd been talking for roughly 45 minutes while none of us Ambassadors could hear! So, they had a re-do and started all over - and now I'm even more excited! Seriously, this is going to be great! My plan is to start calling stores this week to start setting up appointments for Demos, Make-in-takes, QK Crops (that would be super fun!) and classes - but the best news for all of you QK addicts is that they're totally down for giving us goodies to give away at our events! I'm trying to think of fun ways to do this - I'm thinking of a QK Bingo . . . my elementary school teacher brain is going to have to dust of the cobwebs and think of some more "icebreakers!". I do know that I have a couple events in the works . . . I'll report those as soon as they're set in stone! More to come! And I'm going to post a pic of a Halloween class that is coming up (a mini-album) where I used a lot of the new QK Halloween dies - I think it's pretty cute but I am biased! Hope everyone is having a lovely day!
