Cruising, Crafting and Creativity

Announcements/ Join My Team

Hello stampers! The “creeping crud” hit my world with a vengeance and I'm just now slowly feeling human again. Went to the doctor and he said this cough is taking 4-6 weeks to clear up. Now, if I could just hole up and be crafty for that time I'd be hunky dory. Alas, work still calls my nane…lol.

Prior to getting sick I was able to go on a crafting cruise with some of my buds. We enjoyed it so much, one of my downline and I are thinking of planning one ourselves. We had 4 classes on board, with most everything provided by the instructors. We did have to bring scissors and glue, but that was easy peasy.

Here are a few pages from my favorite project, a scrapbook in a box, cruise themed of course.

Cruising, Crafting and CreativityCruising, Crafting and CreativityCruising, Crafting and Creativity

We constructed a platform first and then made this hinged book to go inside. I'm thrilled with the way it turned out. I'm actually going to use this to make a memory album when my husband I and go on the Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip to Alaska this July. That trip is also a cruise, through the Inside Passage. We were fortunate to earn this trip in 2011 and it is our favorite cruise yet.

Incentive trips are only part of the “perks” to my “job” as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. When I joined this fabulous company 15 years ago I had no idea these trips would ever be a possibility.

Do you like to craft? Do you spend a fortune at the Big Box stores? Do you like to spend time with other fun peeps sharing your love of stamping and crafting? If so, now might just be the best time to give the Stampin' Up! business opportunity a closer look.

As you may know, during the months of January, February and March it is Sale-a-Bration time at Stampin' Up!. Not only can you earn a free stamp set and or other products for each $50 you spend, you can acutally get some pretty great benefits by purchasing the starter kit.

For just $99 plus tax, NO SHIPPING (1st benefit!), you can choose $125 in any products out of the Annual or Occasions catalog…that's $26 extra in free products. Maybe you need some extra SNAIL Adhesive or there's a new stamp set still on your wish list. BUT, there's still more. During Sale-a-Bration you can also choose two free stamp sets of ANY value. If it were me, I'd choose the two most expensive on my list.

In addition to all these great benefits, you get to be a part of my AAA-MAAAA-ZING team, Girls INK. We are a crazy group from all over the country and we have one thing in common…we love to stamp. A few of us have chosen the career plan to make some extra money in addition to saving money. Your choice, turn it into a business or just save money on stuff you buy anyway.

Questions? Email me or give me a call at 214-293-4461 and we'll chat. Ready to join? Click here and just follow the steps.
