EVERY Person You Know is Going to Have a Birthday This Year!

Samples/ Stamping

In this time of uncertainty, one thing we CAN count on is the fact that we will all have a birthday each year! I know some of us are stuck on birthday #29 but that's beside the point…ha!

I know many of you make handmade birthday cards so if you would like the instructions for one or more of these, feel free to email me.

I have more ideas where these came from!

The Stampin' Up! catalog is filled with samples, too so if you don't already have a demonstrator who will give you a catalog, email me and I'll help you out with that, too!

New Beginnings #stampingdiversity

Papercrafting/ Samples

Happy Friday Eve Stampers! This upcoming weekend will be an extra long one for me since Monday is a holiday at my “other” job! In this time of uncertainty, I am surely blessed to have not one, but two full-time jobs that pay me well!

Speaking of jobs, and in the spirit of #stampingdiversity, I had asked my newsletter community to tell me what occasions and events for which they'd like to see samples. Bev mentioned “new job”.

Of course this could be used for any “new beginning” . The neutral colors would work for either man or woman.

Below you'll find the instructions, including measurements and supplies. If you find yourself wanting or needing to order any of these supplies, just click on a picture below to go shopping!

If you are not currently a part of my newsletter crafting community, you can join by giving me some brief info in the sidebar. If you'd like to see a sample for a particular event or occasion, please feel free to leave me a comment!
