Never a Better Time to Join

We have all been there.  Waging that internal battle as we debate on what supplies to buy to make the next great handmade project.  We all know that paper crafting is an expensive hobby because frankly, you can never have enough supplies.  

What if I told you that right now during SALE-a-BRATION, you can get, at minimum, $165 worth of product for only $135 and there wouldn't be any tax or shipping charges?  What if I sweetened the deal and told you that after your initial purchase, you'd save at least 20% off every order you place?


I know you're probably thinking, I don't want to run a business, I just want to craft.  That's totally okay and completely acceptable with Stampin' Up!  We have lots of hobby demonstrators who only join for the discount.  Just knowing there is definitely a business opportunity to be had is all I ask.

Have I piqued your interest yet?  What if I told you there's one more thing that could make your decision even easier?  You can get you kit for FREE simply by hosting a party during SALE-a-BRATION.  As a hostess, you can use your hostess rewards for FREE merchandise, or toward your demonstrator kit and earning the kit for FREE is that much easier during SALE-a-BRATION because hostess can earn MORE.  Check out the chart below to see what I mean.



If you'd like some more information, please send me a quick note.  I'm happy to answer your questions.

As always, thanks for stopping by and Happy Stampin'

A New Session is Under Way



Last week, I started the newest session of card club.  It's always so much fun coming up with new projects to do with the ladies, sharing new tips and tricks.  Even bring back some old techniques we've forgotten about by getting caught up in the new.

This month, our three projects featured sets from the new Occasions catalog (if you haven't received a copy and would like one, please send me a little note with your address).

We started with something pretty simple featuring the new Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits.  I absolutely LOVE these new thinlits as they're so easy to use and incredibly beautiful.

We used basic grey, basic black and blushing bride glimmer paper to create this card.  Add a little something, something with our silver satin ribbon and voila, you've got this beauty!







Next on the list was a little something for Valentine's Day.  Once again, the card was simple to create using our Bloomin' Hearts Thinlits.  As this is such a detailed thinlit, we used the Big Shot Die Brush to make getting all the fine details out without much effort.


The final card of the night featured TWO of my favourites from the new catalog.  The first was from the Chose your Dreams set.  I love the iconic landmarks; the only thing that could make it better would be an Eiffel Tower image.  I paired this set with Beautiful You to create a very fashion forward, or french-feeling card.  We used the new watercolour pencils and the stitched shape framelits to add a little extra to the overall design. 


All in all, I think the January kick-off went well.  We learned some new techniques, used some new product and had a blast crafting together.  If you're interested in learning more about card club; please don't hesitate to ask.

Don't forget it's SALE-a-BRATION right now.  If you're planning to order any of the items used to recreate these cards, remember that for each $60 you spend before tax and shipping, you'll get to pick a FREE item from the exclusive SALE-a-BRATION brochure.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stampin'!

Special Reason Bundle

You might look at this bundle and think it's just another flower set.....It's not!!




The Special Reason bundle is quite unique! The Stylish Stems Framelits, which are part of the bundle, produce several different looks. Here are a few projects to show you what I mean.




You actually use two framelits to get the look of the orange flower on the box.




The easiest way to fully appreciate this bundle is to watch this video by Stampin' Up!
