Top Ten Definitely Diva Stamper

I have the most amazing team of demonstrators!  They are always so supportive of each other, enjoy sharing and always so grateful.  Each month I make a hand stamped card and send to the Top Ten in sales for the month.  It is a fun opportunity to say thank you for being a part of my stamping family.  We love to welcome new stampers to our group and if you would like to be a Definitely Diva Stamper, we would love to have you.

Stamping Make and Take, Take 2

Just love this card I cased from by Debra Currier, ARTfelt Impressions.  Debra used Crumb Cake to stamp on, I was short of Crumb Cake so decided to use the Whisper White and think it turned out well.  I had planned to do the paper piercing but totally forgot.  Would have been a great feature to share with my customers.  They loved the card as much as I do.

Make & Take 02
See you tomorrow with another great card which also includes a fun book mark.

Stamping Make and Take

If you are new to stamping the term Make and Take could be language you don't understand.  No matter if you are new or and experienced stamper Make and Takes me hands on stamping fun and you will get to take something you made home with you. 

Last week I had a Mystery Hostess Party, not only did those who attend get to make two cards, but they also got their name into a drawing for the free hostess dollars to spend. 

Jane Wolf was Wednesday Mystery Hostess she was able to select $25 in free Stampin' Up! product of her choice.  Thursday's lucky winner was Gayle Myhr she was able to choose $40 in free product.   One guest placed a large enough order ($150) to earn her own $25 in free product.  Remember if you place an order with me or at my online store of $150 or more (before S&H and Tax) you earn $25 (or more) in free Stampin' Up! product of your choice.  You can even use some of those dollars to buy exclusive hostess stamp sets.

This is the one of the cards we made at the Mystery Hostess Party,
I cased it from Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Jennifer Brum.

Monday Matinee

I love to see other stampers stamping rooms, so today I thought I would share mine.  When we picked out plans to build this home,  I had this room picked out for my stamping room.  The first few years we lived here it was a little formal sitting area that we seldom used.  I had my stamping stuff in the basement where my classroom space is, while it was convenient my heart always was in this room with the lovely window with a view. 

Many of you know that while my Mom battled ovarian cancer she lived with us until her passing.  She loved to watch me stamp and so we moved my stamping stuff into the sitting room so we could spend time together while I worked and stamped.  Each day I continue to feel her presance in this room, she was and still is one of my biggest cheer leaders in my business.

So without further ado here is a tour of my room.

Betsy's Blossom Top Pick #6

For the past 11 years Tom and I have enjoyed an extraordinary vacation each year for two of us all expenses paid by Stampin' Up!  To exciting places like Hawaii, Alaskan Cruise, Panama Canal Cruise and many more.  This past May we were Stampin' Up!'s guest at the amazing Boardwalk Resort at Disney World for 6 days.  We had park hopper passes and hit all the parks.  We received Betsy's Blossom Stamp Set as a gift along with stamping ideas.  This is one of the cards I made using their ideas.

While I can't make promises I hope to post at least every other day, some fun idea, tips, video or just a little note to say hey, how are you today!  Find some time to stamp and enjoy life!  See you soon.

Betsy's Blossom Top Pick #5

Number 5 maybe my favorite one... but I am not sure by whom it was done.  So if this is your card you swapped with me, just let me know so credit I can give thee.

See you tomorrow for the last swap I'll share, but more ideas and inspiration will surely continue to be there.
