Hi Stamping Friends!
Without a doubt, one of the best perks of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is getting together with other demos for stamping fun! This month (Thursday night to be exact) was our Whirlwind Stampers get together led by my awesome upline Dania Welch! I help her organize the sign ups for M&T’s, attending, and swapping. I really look forward to seeing this group of talented demos every month- it is “stamping therapy time”- one thing we all agree on, is getting together with people with similar interests is a fun de-stressor from real life.
Anyway- this month’s projects were just out of this world- look at these amazing cards:
First card was created by one of my uber talented downline- Amye! Don’t you just adore these colors together? And I was looking to extend one of my stems- I discovered another wonderful feature of photopolymer stamps- I could bend the bottom half that I didn’t need around to the back of the block so it didn’t get in my way- so awesome to have stamps so flexible you can change their shape!! If you haven’t received your Lotus Blossom stamp set yet- this is the LAST month of Sale-a-bration so you can still earn this baby for FREE- just place a $50 order and you can select this as your free SAB item.
Next up was this awesome card and box project brought to us by the amazing Anne K! She used her Paper Pumpkin this month and changed up the card design just a bit…don’t you just love this SPRING accordion card?? Love the colors and hope this helps us really bring spring forward soon!
I forgot to add pearls to my butterflies, will definitely add them as it is gorgeous with them! Isn’t this a great gift to give someone who needs a ‘pick me up’? Or just lovely home décor for your mantle. Paper Pumpkin refill kit for this month is on my next order, another perk of PP is that you can purchase any available past kits or refills that you want. Love it!
Last, but definitely not least- is this amazing masculine card by Dania! Can you tell the sentiment is embossed? It really pops, it was nice to get a closer look at this stamp set as I’ve been wondering if I should get it or not, you got it- going on my next order. The designer paper is a stack, and I’m getting that too- as it’s a bundle for 15% off retail.
We decided to go back to our small 2″ square samplers for our swaps this month. People have to sign up by a certain date (two demos in our group live far away so they mail their swaps so they can participate long distance). I plan to mount these over the weekend and get them in a frame- just beautiful work – I love every one of these swaps! Can you tell which one is mine? So fun to make them!
Just a reminder that our $5 off paper pumpkin 3 month subscription is almost over- if you want to get the March kit- purchase this pre-paid subscription by Tuesday March 10th at midnight (and make sure you follow the directions in the email you will receive to redeem the kit- you must sign in to your account and fill in your address by March 10th to get this month’s kit). **Please let me know if you’d like me to do this step for you- I’m happy to help you! Or if you want to just go and sign up for monthly kit ($19.95 per month includes shipping; just add tax):
I sent out my March Monthly e-Newsletter with all my classes, events, team get togethers and news yesterday to my customers and downline. If you didn’t receive it, and you’d like to see what I’m offering, here is a link to my newsletter- I welcome anyone to attend my classes- whether you are a new stamper, experienced, a demo or former demo- all are welcome. I do adhere to sign up deadlines and pre-registration as I have so many supplies to order and don’t want to plan an event and then have cancelations… that’s no fun and a huge waste of time and materials for me. I hope you understand, I am trying my hardest to run a stamping business, as well as meet all my customer’s needs, not easy at all… but I try to always do my best for you.
Well that’s all for today- thanks so much for stopping by to read my blog! I hope you have some crafty fun planned this weekend! Would love to hear from you- I really treasure each comment and thank you for taking time out of your busy day for me!
