JOIN IN ON THE FUN!!!  Do you want to pay full price or buy with a discount for EVERY stampin’ need??? How about this cute mini trimmer and a full pack of 6×6 DSP!!!  Come try it out at the February buffet.


THIS IS THE BEST TIME – Becoming a Hobby Stamper is so easy . You just need to purchase the Starter Kit. The price of the kit is THE BEST deal Stampin’ Up! offers – $99 for $125 worth of product of your choosing, free shipping directly to you (a savings of $9.90), and free business supplies (so there is no pressure to try the business side of things if you don’t want to and you can give them to me to recycle).

I  have had lots of questions about joining and what it all means….So, here’s a recap of all of the goodies you’ll receive with the Starter Kit during Sale-A-Bration (through March 31):

  • Up to $125 in product of your choice
  • Any stamp set of your choice (up to $45 value)
  • 48-sheet 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper sampler pack ($11.50 value)
  • Mini Paper Cutter ($26.50 value)
  • Standard Business Supplies Pack ($50 value)
  • Paper Pumpkin Kit ($22 value)
  • Free Shipping (10% of order – up to $28 value)

And here are my Top 10 reasons why buying the Starter Kit is the BEST DECISION EVER:

  1. Ultimate Bundle – For $99 (plus free shipping!) you get up to $208 worth of product of your choice during Sale-A-Bration. It’s a no-brainer!
  2. Discount – You’ll receive 20% off all purchases as a demonstrator (or 20% commission on sales)!
  3. Test Drive – You get to test-drive being a demonstrator through the next full quarter plus an additional month, so if you sign up today, that means through July 31, 2020 without doing another thing!
  4. Zero Obligation – There is no obligation to stay active and no penalty to drop. If you don’t meet the quarterly minimum of $300 in purchases or sales, you simply just become inactive after July 31, 2020.
  5. No Selling Required – You don’t need to teach classes, hold workshops, have a blog, or anything like that. You get to do you in your own creative world. 95% of demonstrators are hobbyists – we all signed up for the discount! There are many people who just order what they want and enjoy creating with it.
  6. Color & Product Coordination – Stampin’ Up!’s colors are second to none and all of their products coordinate. So you know that you can match your paper to your ink to your embellishments. It takes the guesswork out of creating, which, for this busy woman is essential!
  7. One-Stop Shop – Stampin’ Up! offers everything you need to create (well, except for chocolate!) and it gets delivered to your doorstep.
  8. See It First – You get to see catalogs first and pre-order products before they become available to everyone else!
  9. BEST UPLINE EVER:  For me the big benefit is belonging to a bigger picture…Amy Richel is my up line and she is just one of the best…her heart is bigger than you can imagine and she has regular meetings for all of us so we get to be part of a bigger picture.  She always has a project to share and brings back ideas, new catalogs, samples and more from On Stage events…she is also a trip winner and loves to share everything from her trips abroad.

Ready to give it a try?   I’d love to help you get more of what you want.  I have lots of business experience and if you really want to start a business I can help, too.  Just want to buy at 20% discount…that’s a great decision…you define your decision and there is NEVER any pressure.  You won’t really know unless you try it,..what do you have to lose?  CLICK HERE for information or contact me.

This stamp set is Free when you purchase $50 in product from any catalog.  The punch is also FREE when you purchase $100 in product.



Let’s get out of the winter doldrums and help others too…make a few cards and get them in the mail to shut ins, friends and family JUST BECAUSE.

I apologize for  the late publishing of the winners.  We had a huge class in January which makes it difficult to draw names – fun to have so many coming and going….besides,  I left the prizes at home…duh!  Meera and Gary had fun pulling the winning tickets!  Watch for your PRIZE e-mail: Holly, Willy, Sue, Joy,  Danette!!!


Are you resigetered for the next buffet..we have an added treat:  Lisa Tavares – will be doing Satin Hands in the adjoining room -open to the public and to all stampers.  Be sure to stop in for a sweet treat for your hands…instead of sugar,  treat your hands …you can stamp, cut, paste and create then get a special treatment for your hands.

Good morning Stampers!

What a fun way to start our buffets in 2020 – Poppies, valentines and lots of JOY! Our newest stamper, Danette, made her first card ever!  Everyone cheered her on AND so many helped her get though the more difficult ones.


Although we don’t usually have kids at our buffet, Meera and Lily are our regular stampers and had their own table to make beautiful valentine cards for their class members.

Happy 2020 Stampers!

2020 is off and running and I’m trying to catch my breath!  Hope you had wonderful holiday time with family and friends….and didn’t overindulge… we were not the most self-disciplined but enjoyed every morsel!


I just can’t help myself…these poppies are just amazing!  Have you seen the DSP?  I wanted to make a card with it for the Buffet on January 14th  but I had the hardest time deciding which design to use…so far I have 3 and there may be more as I haven’t put the pack of paper away yet!!! Do any of these speak to you?  I will make a limited few for those who respond so send me your choices by Friday evening: 1-  band of red poppies at top…2 – field of poppies bottom left or  3 – paint splattered poppies .    Then the REAL Poppy card will emerge I am sure! We may just have a whole table of poppies for you to play with. What do you think about that?

Watch for a Poppy Special coming up!!!

Thanks for “popping” in … see you on Tuesday…don’t forget to register.

Just a quick morning hello and a big look at the ULTIMATE!

Before we get into “the ultimate” …I have to share what I have been playing with – these FREE Sale-a-Bration stamp sets are really fun. Just look at this whimsical frog from “So Hoppy Together” – FREE with $50 purchase  – This TOAD makes me laugh…one of these cards will be on the buffet February 12th.  Are you coming for some last minute valentines and fun kits to play with from the Sale-a-Bration ?

so hoppy together.feb.


Here is another card we worked on at the buffet last week…vellum is NO LONGER a challenge!!! Sorry it’s not the best pic but that NEW Crackle Paint  stamp makes a good background over which to place a cover of  vellum to soften it up.  Don’t you just love the die cuts from the new Dear Doily bundle?

vellum dear doily

VELLUM TIP:  Take a sponge and dip it in some Tombow glue. Then paint it on the surface of the vellum and adhere to your paper.  It works perfectly every time and does not leave adhesive marks!!!
