It’s My Stampin’ Anniversary!

Today I celebrate 5 years with Stampin’ Up! Let’s celebrate with some blog candy! Leave a comment sharing what you love about Stampin’ Up!  It can be a favorite product or anything! I will pick a random winner to receive 5 of my handmade cards.

I have to say I made one of the best decisions ever when I joined Stampin’ Up!  I didn’t know at the time that I was about to embark on such a rewarding and fulfilling experience! Who knew that creating and sharing cards could bring so much joy?! I love the products (and the discount on the products) but I have to say it is the people…you and many others that I met along this journey, that bring me such joy! I love how we share and inspire each other. I have met so many new friends through this common interest. We are gearing up to go to the Stampin’ Up! Convention in April and I am looking forward to seeing and hanging out with “my people”.   If this is something you have thought about or considered doing, I say Go for it!  Come join the fun! There is no obligation, no pressure, and the rewards are plentiful!!!!

Sale A Bration

This is the last month of Sale-A-Bration. Some items from the Occasions catalog and Annual catalog will be retiring soon.  Do you have everything you want?  While we don’t know exactly what is retiring yet, we do know that the 2016-2018 In Colors will retire the end of May.  They will be available while supplies last before then so I suggest if these are colors you like, make sure you have what you need!  In the past they have sold out fast once they announce the retiring products in April!  *If you have the ink pads you may want to make sure you have the ink refills. Purchase now while you can earn FREE gifts with your qualifying purchase.  I always stock up on adhesives and other essentials like envelopes and cardstock during Sale-A-Bration.

Do you like making cards and 3D projects but don’t have everything you need?  Do you find you have limited time to craft and wish there was a way to make it quick & simple? Well, if you answered yes to either of these questions, I have just what you’re looking for…my “Just Stampin’ Card Kit and 3D Project Buffet” TO GO!

Monthly “Kit Buffet” TO GO cost:  $10 (plus shipping and handling)

Here’s how you can reserve your seat at the buffet table:

Email me ( with “Just Stampin’ Kit Buffet” in the subject line. Include your full name, mailing address, and email address.  I will send you a PayPal invoice. Orders need to be placed by March 16th. (*Please note I can only accept a limited number of orders each month. I may reach my limit before March 16th.)

Just Stampin’ Buffet TO GO Kits include:

  • Pre-cut supplies for four projects (stamped images not included, in accordance with Stampin’ Up! policy)
  • Envelopes for non 3D projects
  • Pre-punched items and/or Big Shot items, such as die cuts and textured embossed
  • Ribbon and/or embellishments

I love to spoil my customers and they have been enjoying my card kits and 3D projects at classes and/or when they place an online order. I love to send out card kits and/or treats for orders placed with me. You can get a “thank you” card kit for FREE with an online purchase using the hostess code. (*See below for the current hostess code.)

My “Kit Buffet TO GO!” is intended to make it easy for you to be able to see and try out different products while being able to substitute different stamps you already have. You don’t have to worry about having coordinating designer series paper to go with the cardstock, the right color ribbon to match, or other embellishments…everything is in the kit!  You just need to stamp and adhere. My kits are versatile to be able to use for different occasions!

Here’s what others have said about my past kits:

Your kit arrived yesterday and I’ve had great fun putting it together. You did a terrific job!  I love the way everything coordinates (which is my biggest challenge) and the kit was so well organized with the pieces for the box all together neatly in a glassine envelope.  Such attention to detail!  

Your instructions were impeccable.  Your pictures were beautiful and a big help in putting everything together. Obviously I am very pleased. And I will be ordering again if you have future kits.    Thank you so much,
Deborah M

I haven’t had much time to craft lately but I did these in a jiffy and they are sooo cute. Thank you for offering this for us!

Please count me in! Besides being great cards, it’s the BEST value out there and I’d do this even if you charged more–your time is worth more than you are charging!
Thanks, Jeanie. Excited to see the new things you’ve come up with.

My Paper Pumpkin box arrived last week and all I can say is WOWZERS! It is a winner! You can use these adorable stockings for so many things…to hold gift cards, decorate packages, as table favors (fill with treats or silverware), ornaments, etc.  Sister Corda would have loved this month’s kit!!! I could just see her tucking some of her homemade candy in these to give to others.

Check out the how-to video to see everything in the kit and how easy it is to put these projects together!
