My Birthday...


I "work" for a great company. Stampin' Up! made a new tradition this year for celebrating their demonstrator's birthdays. I am still trying to figure out why it took them 20+ years to come up with the idea though. LOL

Starting this year, they are sending a personal birthday card to each and every demo in the month of their birthday. I got mine a few weeks ago and I am going to share it with you today...since today is my birthday after all!

The card is simple, yet makes me so happy. It is made using My Digital Studio and printed off. ONE simple rhinestone adds so much to it. It just goes to show you that simple is awesome and it doesn't cost much.

The inside of the card has Real Red Polka Dot DSP on the top and a note for me on the bottom. I am not going to show you the inside since it has a special birthday present for me inside. If you want to know what the special gift is.... sign up to be a demo! :) Believe me, it is worth it for the relationships, fun, crafting, money, and don't forget the awesome products!
The starter kit right now is an awesome deal. I signed up during Sale-a-bration last year and this is by far the best deal you will get, so don't wait. F04 just under $150 you get over $360 in great products to use. Do it for a business, or do it for fun as a hobby...either way you won't regret it. Ask me how today...the deal doesn't last long!

Happy Stamping!

A Take on someone else...

The 3 cards in this post are all my own creations, but they were definitely inspired by some other crafty people.

The first is a card that is similar to one that my team made at a meeting that I was unable to attend. I only got a glance at one from another team member so I think I got most of it right, but I don't remember the colors or the sentiment. I used the Apple Blossoms hostess set and now that I think about it, I think they used the stamp from Funky Four instead...but basically the same right??

The next card is one that I semi copied out of a Demonstrator Only magazine that Stampin' Up! sends every month. I didn't have the magazine handy at the time, so I did what I could remember and added some Old Olive DSP behind it as well.

The last card is one that was inspired by Max, who is part of my upline. She is doing a great fundraiser for MS and she is making cards in the mail for people to buy. ALL profits go to MS and even shipping comes right out of her own pocket. It is a cause near to her heart and if you have a second you should check it out here.
Ask me today about how to get yourself some FREE stuff! But, the deal ends March you have to step on it!

Elegant Soiree DSP

I have some Elegant Soiree DSP left over from a class that I did a few months back. I really need to finish up the pack. The colors in it are beautiful and work great for masculine or femanine cards. Here are a couple that whipped up the other afternoon.

The owl stamp comes from the Sale-a-bration Punch Bunch set and the set can be yours FREE with a $50 order between now and March 31st. Hurry!!! It is only one of many options you can choose.
The circle sentiment on the second card is also from the Punch Bunch set. I haven't totally finished this card yet. I can't decide if I needed another Birthday Card or if I needed a Thank You I haven't stamped another greeting on it yet. I was thinking the Curly Cute set would work nicely on it when the time comes to send it out to someone I love. :)
Happy Stamping!

Poppy Parade

Let me just start by apologizing for the pictures. I got a new phone/camera and I haven't quite mastered the art of using it yet. :)

The cards in this post are all ones made using only Poppy Parade and Whisper White. I like a clean and simple look, as you may have noticed by now, so using only one or two colors is an easy way to get that. The patterned paper is the Hostess Level 1 In Color set. I haven't really used it and I figure I here it goes!
The stamps that you see come from the Punch Bunch Sale-a-bration set and it could be your absolutely FREE by placing a $50 order. It is just one of many options for your FREE set, but you only have until the end of March! So hurry!
Ask me how to get FREE stamps and more right now!

A cute little flower

These little flowers are becoming all the rage right now. You can see them in the "big" catalog too. It is a simple accordian fold, but you use a couple of scallop circles and stick them together. I used Melon Mambo for the flower and Daffodil Delight papers behind it. The stem you ask..... it is the stamp from the Bold Blossom set in the 2011 Occasions Mini Catalog and the whole set is only $9.95! I really like it and if makes a quick easy card. Don't forget the bright button for the center.

Don't forget that for every $50 you spend with me right now you get to choose a FREE stamp set from the Sale-a-bration catalog! Want to host and get more free stuff....give me a call!

Happy Stamping!
