Hello Stampers! Do you have a list of Stampin' Up! products you want to buy so you can get all those FREE Sale-A-Bration products? I do! (YES! Even as a Demonstrator!) 🙂

You might not have thought of it but purchasing a 3, 6, OR 12 month prepaid Paper Pumpkin subscription is one of the easiest ways to get those Sale-A-Bration rewards! AND, there's an added incentive in the March kit.

Earn Sale-A-Bration rewards BIG TIME with Paper Pumpkin!

That's right. Instead of one stamp set in the kit, you'll get two!

When I purchase the 12 month prepaid subscription I only pay for 11 months AND I get three free Sale-A-Bration gifts. (the cost of the 12 months is $209). Now, that's a great deal in itself. BUT, I add some extra supplies like cardstock, envelopes and SNAIL to bring my pre-tax total up to $250. By doing that I get two extra SAB rewards PLUS $50 in free merchandise. (regular free amount on $250 is $25 but with the SAB bonus, I get $50!) Let's recap:

spend $250 plus tax and shipping and GET:

  • 12 months of Paper Pumpkin creativity kits delivered right to you (but you've only paid for 11…woo hoo-one free month!)

Where Have YOU found Glitter?

Contests/ Mojo Monday

Hey stampers! It's such a warm, sunny day here in north Texas and we are LOVING the change! It was cold and rainy last week so having a bright, yellow orb in the sky sure lifts our spirits. Even my first graders at church seemed to be in happier moods!

I have a question for you today…where have you found Where Have YOU Found Glitter??

 

OK, I don't mean in a “normal” place, but in or on what unusual place have you found glitter? I'd love you to leave a comment on the bottom of today's post.

I posed this question to my newsletter subscribers and gave them an opportunity to win a signed copy of Laura Child‘s new scrapbooking mystery, Glitter Bomb. The results were simply hilarious and I wanted to share some of the funnier ones with you today.

  • Inside my pantyhose- around the thigh area ..I was a chaperone at a high school dance.
  • Once found glitter on the bathroom floor of a craft store. (It was hanging out with the Easter grass!)
  • When we were cleaning out my Mom's house, I found all kinds of glitter spread in the drawer of her glitter. When I asked her about it, she indicated that she had spilled a small packet of it years prior and just left it there so when she picked something out of the drawer, she would be reminded of that time.
  • On the dog's nose.
  • The strangest place I have found glitter was in my contact lens case and I was nowhere near glitter. Mystery.
  • My strangest place would have to be on my tongue. Lol And no I don’t eat glitter, haha but probably ate something and not realizing I had glitter on my fingers.
  • My center desk drawer at work!!!!
  • I found glitter once between my baby sons toes.
  • I would say the strangest place I’ve found glitter would be on my cat’s tail!
  • I found glitter in the church pew .
  • Unfortunately on the end of my nose. This was after cashiering all day!
  • The strangest place that I have found glitter was between my toes. I had spilled it on the floor and apparently I did not get it all.
  • The strangest place I have found glitter was in a book that I’m reading.
  • The strangest place I have found glitter was in my bra.
  • I have found glitter every place in my house, on my husband that will not go in my craft room, and my \ beagle.
  • As a retired kindergarten teacher I would find glitter everywhere and for some time. My custodian was never happy with me.
  • I found glitter on my friend's face. I was working with glitter, she was not!!!
  • In my mashed potatoes!
  • My underwear! I am sure it was on my hands from crafting so long & needing to desperately take a potty break!
  • The strangest place I found glitter was on my cat's paws. She tracked it all over our house. The strange thing was we had no glitter in the house at all. Go figure.
  • The question would be, “Where Have I not found glitter?”

My personal favorite is the last one; so true don't you think?

While we're on the subject of glitter, sometimes a strip and some tiny pieces is just what you need to give a little “wow” to your card!

It Was A Gullywasher….BUT They Still Came!

Classes / Events/ Stamping

Hey Stampers! Hope you all had a fabulous weekend. Let me tell you about mine! It was a gullywasher…but they still came! Who you might ask? Why, my loyal customers and friends.

It Was A Gullywasher….BUT They Still Came!

The rain could not keep my stampers away; some of the groups drove over an hour to get to my Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog Open house.  The event was free, and the first 25 who RSVP'd got a free gift. I had 6 projects, a few snacks and samples galore. There was an extra project for those who decided to place an order, and let me tell you, almost everyone did! 🙂

The projects used new products from the current holiday catalog and I set things up in stations around the room. Here are two of the projects:

It Was A Gullywasher….BUT They Still Came!

Moral of the story? Neither snow, nor sleet, nor hail, nor a good ‘ol gullywasher can keep us away from a day of stamping! 🙂

If you live in the Dallas metroplex area, be sure you're on my email newsletter list (fill in your name and email at the top of this post). I definitely want to invite you to my next event!

Take Your Pick Tool by Stampin’ Up!

Announcements/ Product Information

Hello Stampers! I hope you all had a relaxing “Labor Day”; kind of seems like it should be “Un-Labor Day” instead! 🙂 I got to spend most of the weekend stamping and planning projects for my upcoming events. Of course, that meant I was playing with all sorts of new products, like our new Take Your Pick Tool!

Take Your Pick Tool by Stampin' Up!

Every so often, Stampin' Up! comes up with a tool that is a game changer. We demonstrators have been asking for this sort of tool for awhile and now we've got it!

The last “game changer” type (in my humble opinion) was the stamp positioning tool, the Stamparatus. It made two, three, and four step stamping SO easy for my customers. If you're not familiar with that tool, I'll have a video farther down in this post where you can check it out. But, back to the Take Your Pick Tool.

This little gem is designed to make working with small embellishments so much easier. The “putty” end is perfect for picking up sequins and placing them perfectly on your projects. The flat, spatula is designed to easily slip under adhesive backed elements such as rhinestones, pearls and enamel dots. There is also a paper piercing tool AND two sizes of stylus tips. Seriously, this is A-MAAAA-ZING! I grabbed a video done by one of our product specialists in the home office. Check it out:

You can order this tool starting tomorrow at my online store.

And…here's a quick video about the Stamparatus!

Remember, our Holiday Catalog goes live tomorrow and you can see it online at my store. IF you need your own copy so you can look at all the fabulous new products no matter WHERE you are, just email me! Iif you aren't currently working with another awesome demonstrator, of course!)

Why Should I Buy Stampin’ Up!’s Blended Seasons Stamp Set?

Big Shot/ Customer Q & A/ Die Cut/ Tuesday Tips

Hey Stampers! Today I wanted to tackle a question I've been getting from some customers. Why should I buy Stampin' Up!'s Blended Seasons Stamp Set?  This product is only available for one month so why do I need it? This is such a great question and I've got a couple of answers.

First, while this stamp set is only available during August, you will be able to use it for years to come. This stamp set was designed to be versatile, perfect for more than one season and occasion.

Why Should I Buy Stampin' Up!'s Blended Seasons Stamp Set?

You'll notice there are floral, fall foliage, and winter/Christmas images. There are six sentiments, covering any occasion or event.

Another reason you might want to add this to your collection is there is a coordinating set of framelits dies so you can create beautiful layers in a snap.

Why Should I Buy Stampin' Up!'s Blended Seasons Stamp Set?

The best value would be to purchase the stamp set and dies as a set or “bundle” and save 10%! The bundle is available in both clear and wood mount.

Why Should I Buy Stampin' Up!'s Blended Seasons Stamp Set?

Now, last, but not least, here is the best reason you need this stamp set and/or bundle. You can color purple flowers! You DID know my favorite color is purple, right?! 🙂

 

Why Should I Buy Stampin' Up!'s Blended Seasons Stamp Set?

This sample was colored with the new assortment of Watercolor Pencils, which are only available while supplies last. I can see so many different sentiments for this card. As a matter of fact, I think I'll make several sets of these, with sentiment pieces, put together in one of our acetate card boxes. What a great gift!

If you'd like the PDF tutorial for this card, just click below, and save to your computer.

And….We’re Off! Alaska Bound!

Facebook LIVE/ Join My Team

It's 4:45 AM and we're heading out to DFW. Our flight to Seattle leaves a bit before 7:00 and, with the time change, we'll land about 9:00. My brother and his wife will be our “Lyft” drivers (that was his attempt at humor!) and fetch us at the airport. Then it's off for a day of fun in Seattle. I've never been to the Space Needle so hopefully we will get to go there. We plan to visit Pike Place Market again and we'll definitely be shipping home some salmon!

And....We're Off! Alaska Bound!

If you're not familiar with this Seattle treasure, read more about it HERE.

Pike Place Market is such a blast. Our favorite thing from our last visit was watching the guys at the fish market inside throw them around.

I'll check in as we board our ship and hopefully will be able to do a Facebook Live to show you around!

We are so blessed to be able to go on these trips! Who would have thought a little rubber stamp, 16 years ago, would have been the start of all my treasured friendships and exotic adventures! Why not check out a little bit more for yourself? There's some extra perks this month that make it even more enticing

Green With Envy – LOVE the new Stampin’ Up! Green Hues!

Announcements/ Join My Team/ Paper crafting/ Paper Pumpkin

Green With Envy – LOVE the new Stampin' Up! Green Hues! Hey Stampers! My stamp clubs and classes this month used several of the new Stampin' Up! “greens”. I thought I would carry that green theme onto the blog for a few days this week.

Today's green is Mossy Meadow. If you've been around Stampin' Up! for awhile, you might remember this color from one of our In Color collections a few years back. I was SO happy to see this color return (along with Blackberry Bliss, from the same IC group)!
