Another Tempting Tuesday! (Sneak Peek too!)

Well I was surprised today to see that Stampin’ Up! had 18 announcements today for us demonstrators! Wowza- 18 pieces of important information. Now some of those announcements were about convention and demo only news, but a good number (8 of the announcements) are full of surprises, new releases and information that I wanted you to have -as you consider what to order this month. It’s such an exciting time to be a demonstrator, and getting a head’s up about some great deals is certainly appreciated, right?? As always- please let me know if you have any questions!

Are you like me and have tons of photos and boxes of photos all over the house? And, I bet you have hundreds, if not thousands, of photos on your phone, camera or sitting on your computer, am I right? Well, if so, and if you’d like to do something about it- I am a total fan of our newest addition- Project Life! You might have noticed these items in retail stores, but Becky Higgins has partnered with Stampin’ Up! for some exclusive items and I have been using them to create my niece’s Graduation gift (it’s not a secret- don’t worry). I have plans to make many more of these fun albums and would love to have you over or plan a “Crop” where we can all work on our albums together, doesn’t that sound like fun?? Let me know when you want to try it!
Blendabilities Bundle Deal Lynn’s Blendy Buddies Bundle Deal!  (I’ll be honest, this one was not in the SU updates, but it was a newsletter I sent out to my customers yesterday, and I wanted you to be able to see my current offer- in case you’re like me and couldn’t begin to pick a few colors out to start with. I have to say that I have used these markers repeatedly and I don’t have a favorite color yet… they color so beautifully.) Stop back on Friday for a sneak peek of my July Club cards- the ladies will be coloring their little hearts out and they will be making 3 cards with blendabilities!)

Well- now you know how I feel- overwhelmed, right?? Sorry about that, but I really wanted you all to have this information. And I hope to stamp with you soon!

I’m so very thankful that you’ve visited me today and I am here to help you with all these tough decisions! Some of them are rather time sensitive (the Dear Heart will likely sell out as quickly as Sweetie Pie stamp set did).

Thanks for stopping by my blog today, I hope you are not sweltering too much and I hope you get some crafty time soon!

Stamping Sisters are Amazing!

Have you ever had a moment when you are truly surprised, and overwhelmed, and feel more blessed than you think you deserve?? These moments are very rare for me (the surprise part)… I feel blessed every day to have such amazing and loving family and friends and am especially thankful for all the new friends I have made in the years that I have been stamping. Becoming a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator was at first a “scary” decision, but my only regret was not signing up years earlier! Who knew that I would be blessed by knowing such generous, amazing people!

So, unbeknownst to me, several of my downline, my upline, and my sidelines (who I have been helping with their blogs), they decided to create a one of a kind card- it is so much more than a card- it is a work of love and art- and I will treasure it always… Karyn Morrison organized the group with directions and pieces that they completed by mail, as one of my downline was in Florida for the winter (hi Judy) and another was on the road with her hubby and their trucking business (hi Kim), and they all chipped in and gifted me not only with this beautiful card, but also two very generous gift cards that I am going to enjoy using at convention this summer. I am still blown away that you ladies did this for me, and that Karyn hand delivered it to me on Wednesday, so that April- my 50th birth-month, was truly complete. (Yes, that is the cafeteria at Schenectady County Community College- Karyn met me after work, before my part time job- teaching at SCCC).

Karyn even made a special box (thank you envelope punch board!)

The theme of the card was the 2013-15 In Colors and Owl Builder punch by Stampin’ Up!

Each segment is so unique and sweet and special and amazing, just like the ladies who created them!
