A Spring catalogue will be coming....

This is a very exciting time of year!  As a Stampin' Up! demonstrator I am gearing up for Stampin' Up!s launch of the spring catalogue.

A brand new mini catalogue of beautiful things is already exciting...but what is even more exciting is that this spring mini catalogue is tied to the famous Sale-a-bration promotion.

In case you are new to the Stampin' Up! world, sale-a-bration is a once a year sale where you can get free stamps for every $60 you spend.  The free stamps are exclusive to this promotion which means you can not buy them or get them any other time.

I get very excited to see what cute and beautiful stamps Stampin' Up! has designed for this exclusive promotion.
Normally January is such a dull month but sale-a-bration makes my life exciting!

I can't wait to show you the new spring and sale-a-bration catalogues!  Okay okay you twisted my arm...here's a taste of the beauty in the spring catalogue!  This card uses an upcoming stamp set called Dragonfly Dreams and some designer series paper that makes me swoon called "Falling in Love"

I'm dying to show you the catalogues!! Here's your options: First, if you have shopped with me in the past year, you are invited to attend my Customer Appreciation Event on Wednesday December 28th.
This annual event has become a tradition and my family loves getting involved.  Last year my oldest son handed out gifts at the door, my husband manned the  buy one get one sale table, my daughter was in charge of the hot chocolate bar and my youngest son was in charge of the raffle tickets.  It was fun and I can't wait to have this event again!
There are going to be free stamping projects, prizes and more!  I hope you can come!  RSVP today


Second, if you haven't yet registered for Stamp Camp, what are you waiting for?  This is my official kick off event for the spring catalogue.  Not only will you get to stamp 10 different cards using the spring and sale-bration products, you'll also be inspired by stamping demonstrations, loads of samples, plus lunch and a  goodie bag of product are included.  Check out the fun from our last stamp camp HERE and register today for my next Stamp Camp on January 14th!  The early bird deadline is on December 15th and there are only about 3 spots left!!! It's a popular event!

My Little Stamper

I can't resist sharing a story about my littlest guy.  One morning this past week he told me he wanted to make a card for his teacher.  She had been away for several days and he thought she would be returning on this particular day.

I could tell he really missed her.  He talked about how great it would be to have her back and he thought he should welcome her back with a card.

We went down to the craft cave and looked at a variety of cards.  He found one that he loved and set about CASE-ing the card.

Here he is hard at work.

Here is the card that he CASE'd.  He changed the sentiment to "Hello There" 


It seems that he did not think the card was a sufficient enough gift.  He explained that he really wanted to let her know how happy he was that she was back so he said he wanted to put in a free card class pass for one of my classes.  😀

I tried to talk him out of it because I didn't want the teacher to think I set him up to the task as a business marketing ploy.  I found a cute post it note holder that I had made and suggested he give that to her with the card if he didn't feel the card was enough. 

He thought it would be great to give the post it note holder...AND the free class pass.  He really felt the free class pass was the most valuable gift.  

I didn't want to discourage him so the card, the post it note holder and the free class pass all went into a cellophane bag to school. 

Before my son left for school I told him I'm sure the teacher would appreciate the card and the work he put into it.  He very seriously explained to me that it was actually thanks to me since if it weren't for me, he wouldn't know how to make such nice cards.  My heart melted.  In the next breath he then said "but if you didn't do Stampin' Up! you would be able to play with me more"  
LOL.  Out of the mouth of babes!  I wish I could bring the joy of stamping to people AND still have endless play time with my children.  I guess we can't have it all but I"m thankful for the balance I have and my beautiful family. 

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Stitched with Cheer by Stampin’ Up!


Thanks for dropping in!  Have you studied the sale items on the Extravaganza sale?  If you haven't, what are you waiting for?
Visit my website or view a pdf of everything that's on sale!

Today I wanted to highlight the Stitched with Cheer stamp set that is 10% off.  You may have thought that the Stitched with cheer stamp set is only useful if you are also purchasing the project kit but that's not true!

The stamp set can also be used to create your own one of a kind cards and tags like the ones I've made here.
In fact I've done whole private classes just using the stitched with cheer stamp set.
It's a great set because it's got images and sentiments all in one set!  It can be used for tags and cards!






Hope these projects inspire you today!

In case you are not familiar with the co-ordinating project kit, I've shared the video for you below.  It's a great way to get some pretty Christmas cards without having to come up with a design or cut the pieces.  Kits are really fabulous time savers!

Happy Wednesday!
