Monday Morning Muse from the Stamp Maven

Classes / Events/ Stamping/ Videos

It's Monday Morning Muse from the Stamp Maven! I had a fabulous Saturday with stamping friends and I wanted to share it with you guys!

Doesn't this look like a blast? Well let me tell you, it sure was! We stamped six projects (the first picture here was one that I created, in it's “early stage” stamping by one of the Ruth's Chris servers), had a great meal, door prizes, but most of all…FUN! Here is a pdf with the two projects I designed.

June 24 project sheet

I used the new Daisy Delight Bundle from Stampin' Up! and another fun new stamp set, Great Big Greetings.

We design our projects so anyone can be successful, whether you've ever picked up a rubber stamp before or not! Feel free to print these out and give them a try.If you need to order any of the supplies, my online store is just a click away!

To see a short video as our event was starting, visit my Facebook page. I'd love for you to like my page and become a follower. I post different projects and info on all my social media sites and you don't want to miss anything now do you?! 🙂

My Stampin' Up! journey started 15 years ago and all I wanted was to save money on my hobby. Can you relate? Now that I'm down the road a bit, the discount is still nice, but it is the friends and events like the one above that mean the most. I can honestly say that so many of my customers and team members are true friends and when we gather to stamp and create, the magic happens. I almost can't explain it but I am so energized after one of our large events I cannot wait for the next one!

We had quite a few new stampers at this event; one flew in from Hawaii and one drove from Arizona! Many of us were strangers at the start but after a day of laughter and stamping, we are strangers no more!

If you might be at a point where this type of friendships and fun piques your interest, here's a little bit more about my team of Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Girls, INK.

I truly am grateful for all the Stampin' Up! has provided for my family and me. In addition to the friendships, my husband and I have gone on quite a few exciting all expenses paid trips; the next one will be to Alaska in 2018!

We earned this cruise in 2011, too and we can't wait to go back! My dream is to have some of my team with me on one of these trips…maybe it will be you! 🙂

I hope you enjoyed my Monday Morning Muse from the Stamp Maven. I've been at work creating some new projects and video tutorials so I'll be sharing those soon!
