Have you ever thought?

About becoming a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator?  This question took me a couple months to figure out, but once I did, I have been so thankful I did.

If you join during Sale-a-bration, now through March 30, 2018, you get to pick 2 additional stamp sets for FREE!  Yes, that’s right, for free!  Who doesn’t love free stuff?

Some of the many perks of being part of the Stampin’ Up! family are:

  • Ongoing 20% discount off all your orders (and the ability to increase that amount to 25%)

National Compliment Day

One of my upline ladies, Janice, posts when it is National “fill in the blank” Day.  I think today, being National Compliment Day, fits Stampin’ Up! quite well.  When was the last time you said “way to go” or one of my favorites “you rock”?

To keep the momentum going, here are a couple of my thank you cards that could very easily be sent with those sentiments in mind…

2018 Sale-A-Bration


Sell A Brate good times, come on!  Let’s sellabrate!  It’s a sellabration!  …You know you just sang that instead of reading it 🙂

This is my favorite time of year!  I love getting free product when I purchase my favorite stamps!  There are some really cute stamps, paper, even thinlits available this year.

For every $50 spent, doesn’t matter if it’s from the Annual Catalog or the Occasions Catalog, you get to pick a free item from the Sale-a-bration catalog.  It’s the best time to stock up essentials as well as cute new bundles from the Occasions catalog.

I will have copies at Catch up on Crafting on January 21st, or let me know and I will mail you a copy.


February Class

The class for February is going to be the “Lots of Happy Card Kit” from the Occasions catalog!  This kit is an introduction to watercolor pencils, which are new to me too, and has refills available.

When: Sunday, February 18th from 1-4pm
Cost: $40

If you sign up before Feb 1st, the preorder price is $35.

To add a little extra incentive… right now Sale-a-bration is happening!  For every $50 you spend, you get a free item out of the Sale-a-bration catalog.  How cool is that?!  I will have a sign up at Catch up on Crafting on January 21st.

Here’s a quick video to show you more of the kit…

2018 Occasions

2018 Occasions Catalog!

I know I’m a bit late in posting this, but the Occasions Catalog is live!  It is full of so many fun goodies!

The Fruit Basket Bundle is the first thing that attracted my eye and it is a blast to play with.  Check out the video below…

I have a bunch of cute samples to show off, so don’t forget to stop by on Sunday, January 21st from 1-4pm during my monthly Catch up on Crafting afternoon!


Paper Pumpkin #redboxchallenge

I have a “small” addiction to Paper Pumpkin :).  So when they put out the Red Box Challenge, I couldn’t help it.  I put together what I thought was a WOW project.  Not only is it my first 3d project, but it has a piece of January through November of 2017 in it.  If you are interested in participating in the #redboxchallenge, please see the details below…


Take the Red Box Challenge! Put together a WOW project using an unused, past kit—or buy a past kit that you’ve had your eye on. Then share an image of your project on Facebook or Instagram with#redboxchallenge before January 31 and you will be entered into a random drawing to win Paper Pumpkin’s March kit, AND the winners of the drawing will get the kit before anyone else! Follow this link for full information, terms, and conditions.

2018 Occasions

Occasions Catalog Sneak Peak

Yes!  I can finally share a sneak peak of a cute stamp set in the 2018 Occasions Catalog!  I am part of a group of women swapping samples before the release and I got to play with the Fruit Basket Bundle.  Including the usual DSP, stampin’ spots, and coordinating cardstock, this product suite comes with…. washi tape and sequins!  I think I’m going to have a class just on this product bundle because of how cute and versatile it is, my love for watermelon and pineapples aside :).  So, without further ado…


The Gift of Cards

When my mom started looking for a gift to give all the ladies in her office this year, she thought of me.  Normally she gives the ladies fuzzy socks or a cute trinket that fits them.  Instead, this year, she gave them all a box of cards.  Inside the box were 2 birthday, 2 thank you, and 1 congratulations.  I was excited for her to give them out because I really enjoyed making the cards that she put inside them.

Little did I know that one of the women who received the box would think they were so cute, that she decided she would do the same for her group of girl friends.  This time I made 3 birthday and 2 thank you cards, all geared toward women.  As you can see from some of the pictures below, they are adorable!

Part of Stampin’ Up!’s statement of the heart is “To love what we do and share what we love”.  I definitely got to do that this Christmas season.  I am blessed to love what I do and being able to share it with my family and friends as they give and receive gifts.  Thank you Mom and Mishelle!
