Snap! Its your Birthday!


Happy Hump Day and thanks for popping back in to see what I have for you today!  It's the third card from my January Club Night!  I admired this card from the minute I saw it, plenty of this idea out there but my inspiration came from Mercedes Weber!  Thanks girl for being an awesome stamper! I changed it just slightly to use what I had on hand but the basic idea and layout are CASEd from her original.

The card has an embossed panel layer in black to make everything striking, which features our new Simple Stripes TIEF in the background.  Then use a panel of Whisper White Thick to make our Polaroid Frame - simply use a square from the Layering Square Framelits to pop out the opening.  The photo is actually one of our Picture Perfect Party DSP prints!  One side of the DSP Stack is actual photography brought to life in our DSP and the flip side is regular designer series paper patterns.  This is a 6" x 6" stack so you simply cut the DSP in half each way and get 4 cards per sheet!  The finishing touches are a greeting stamped on a strip of cardstock, add another strip of dsp and trim both with little flag cuts, pop up a Star from our NEW Myths & Magic 6"x6" Glimmer Paper (irridescent, green, turquoise!) that was die cut with the Wood Crate Framelits!

This was a sure favorite that night!

Celebrate with Lavender

Hi again!

Hope you are doing well and having a great week!  Today's inspiration features a New SALE-A-BRATION stamp set called Lots of Lavender and I've combined it with the Petal Pair textured impression embossing folder (TIEF for short!).  This stamp is so lovely and it's designed as a 2-step stamp with the outline detail image shown in black, and then a 2nd step bold image that you would stamp to color in the flower portion, also an image to stamp and color in the leaf portions, as well as the bow ... and a few other pieces in the image set.

However I wanted to introduce the NEW Stampin' Blends, our alcohol markers that have been brought back to life finally!  The colors come individually or in a color pack, with the light and dark!  So you can purchase them individually as needed if you use up a color, which I can see happening as you stamp and color tons of leaves, someday you might just need a new green!!

The focal image was colored and then fussy cut out the old fashioned way before the big shot and framelits and thinlit dies ... and layered on an oval of the dazzling diamonds glimmer paper, backed with an oval scallop of whisper white.  The Celebrate was also die cut from the NEW Level 2 SAB choice (free with $100 purchase) the Celebrate You Thinlits!!  Adhered with a bit of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Let me tell you the shimmer and dazzle on this card is spectacular!  Oh and I think I added some Wink of Stella over the flowers too - seems that Glitter Brush pen is always in my hand!

Let me know if you need anything, I would be happy to help you!

Monthly Stamp Club


One of the fun things that I offer my customers is a Monthly Stampers Club!  It's an easy way to purchase your Stampin' Up! products on a reasonable budget and even without hosting a workshop, you get the opportunity to be the hostess and enjoy the FREE stampin' rewards!  Members of my Club also get all of their catalogs FREE as a gift from me for supporting my business!  They also get a night to come to my house and make 3 project each month for FREE!  This allows them to see and touch new products, be crafty with other members, create friendships, ask questions about things they've purchased, etc...    It is not a class, it is intended to be quick and fun and their chance to have me there to help with any questions they might have!
Let me know if you are interested, and my Club is open to local and long distance members just the same.  Long distance receive their projects by mail.  Everyone orders online with their own account, and uses a special Hostess Code each month, so your order ships direct to your door!  No waiting for the order to close, no meeting up later to coordinate a delivery time, SUPER easy peasy!

Here is one of the projects from our January Club Night!  It features the Heart Happiness stamp set and Lots to Love Box Framelits, and the little tag is from the Wood Crate Framelits.  The background Whisper White Thick cardstock panel was embossed with the new Sequins Dynamic (deeply embossed) TIEF from the Occasions catalog.  This is also one of the new Narrow Notecards & Envelopes!

Please let me know if you would like to order any of these items, you can ship 24/7 from my ONLINE STORE, via my website!

Thanks, more to share tomorrow!

Make n Takes


It is always fun to get to be an attendee at an event, or to attend a team meeting!  My direct recruiter (upline in SU terms) quit a couple of months after I joined.  For a few years in the beginning my 2nd upline lived in Gilbert and I was able to attend her team meetings.  My third upline was her sister-in-law and she lives in New Jersey.  So for a few years that was a great source of friendship and very educational way to learn about SU products, policies and opportunities!
I am the team leader for my INKin' All Night! demonstrator team.  So I am always the one preparing the events and meetings - which I enjoy doing so don't get me wrong, but it sure is refreshing to be able to show up and not do all the work!  I did do some work because I prepared a presentation and display, but still it was a break from my normal routine!

We had a mix of presentations and then had an awesome lunch and spent basically the rest of the day rotating around to complete several different make-n-take projects!

The projects feature new SALE-A-BRATION and OCCASIONS Catalog products!  Let me know if you don't already have a demonstrator that you do business with and I'd be happy to add you to my customer lists and help you with any SU! product needs.  Please send me a message with a full mailing address and your phone & email info - if catalogs are needed please let me know which ones and I'll get them in the mail to you!

Thanks, Happy Stamping!

Hello from WeStamp January Regional

Hello there!

Well today I was a guest presenter at my dear friend Lorri's team meeting that she does quarterly.  It was so fun, she even let me bring a few of my team that were available to go, so we made a fun day of it!

Here's sweet Lorri, welcoming all of us to the day and sharing the agenda!

Look at all of these cute little fun items waiting for us at our table spot!  The theme for her January event was "picnic".  I think she nailed it!  From the tables, the food and the little details too!

And guess who was the first presenter of the morning!  Yup that was a quick few minutes to be ready!!  But I love her and for this presentation I challenged myself to use a product that I normally don't gravitate towards.  So my presentation focus was the Memories & More Cards and I featured the Petal Passion Card pack.

It was so well received what you could do with one card pack and a few colors and repeating the same embellishments!  I am hosting a class in my studio and I'll post the details for that tomorrow!  Actually I had to postpone the class because the M&M Card Pack was temporarily on back order!

And we could participate in an organized swap and she had about 22, so we split into two groups of 11.  And your 12th card goes up on a Swap Display board and she has them vote for Favorite Swap and has a special door prize for the winner!

And the winner was our very own Cindy Sheldon!  She made this card pack for each one of her swaps!  Holy Cow!  Lucky me, I was in the same swap group!

I'll be back tomorrow with a few more fun pics!  One of her team runs a photo booth machine type of set up so we had fun taking a few pics!  And I'll share the make n takes we made as well, so come back for more!

Petal Passion Swaps


Sat down today to make some swaps for a friends downline team meeting and training event tomorrow!  I'm a guest presenter for her, so I get to swap with her team gals too!

Ever since my Event Council pals presented this product suite at On Stage back in November I have been wanting this suite and to have some time to play with it!

Here they are, all done and ready to bag up to swap!

Here's the swap card - featuring the Petal Passion DSP which is all Black and White and a variety of patterns!  Stamped Petal Passion floral image and cut out with the coordinating Petals & More Thinlits.  I colored with the new Stampin Blends and of course added some Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to it!

And a close up but it's still hard to see how shimmery they were in person!

Thanks Lorri for having me as a presenter and including me in your team activities!  Stay tuned to see what I presented and my display items!

NEW Occasions Catalog Product Shares!


Happy Monday!  I hope that you all enjoyed the weekend and did something fun for yourself!  I stamped just a little bit but I did work on several stamping business things instead!  Catalog packets are labeled, assembled and mailed!!  A customer email letter went out, if you didn't receive it - just email me your email address and I'll add you to my newsletters!  It's time to get back to business and find a way to get my consistency back on track!

With the new Occasions Catalog and SAB Brochures beginning, I figured it was a great time to have my own new beginning so to speak.  I am behind the curve but I really want to earn the Incentive Trip to the Greek Isles!  I have until Sep 30 to meet the cutoff so I would love to have you be part of my journey and success!  I have seen product shares by many demonstrators for years but I have never really offered them for whatever reason, but this year I am!

So here's TWO new ways that you get your hands on the brand new RIBBONS and DESIGNER SERIES PAPERS that are new to the Occasions Mini Catalog!  This is a great way to get a taste for the colors and patterns of the DSP packs and the ribbon share gives you 2 yards of each of the four new ribbons!  Yummy beautiful colors and textures, each so unique to itself!

(NOTE:  The Glimmer DSP is not included in this product share)

You'll receive a 6"x6" sample of each of the 7 Occasions DSP's (84 sheets!) and as a BONUS, you'll also receive a sample of the SAB Bubble & Fizz DSP too!
So that's a total of 96 sheets of 6"x6", 2 sided DSP for $25.00!

With the Ribbon Share you will receive 2 yards of each of the new ribbons!  Navy Corduroy is so velvety!  Lemon Lime Twist has a texture of little stripes!  Berry Burst trimmed with Silver is so elegant and ties so nicely!  And the Whisper White Organza is the perfect classy touch to finish any project!  You can't go wrong with 8 yards of ribbon for just $7.00!

Please let me know if you are interested in one or both of the shares!  I'll have a little extra thank you gift for those that purchase both product shares.  Prices are for local pick up, and can be mailed if needed, with an additional postage fee.

Email me and I will send you the link for payment!  Enjoy and I hope you like this added product share!

Happy Monday!
