2017 Occasions Catalog!

Whew!  The beginning of January was all about events that show off the new occasions catalogue!  Have you taken time to enjoy the spring catalogue yet with all its goodies?

Today's watch it wednesday video is a cute video that showcases some of the fun suites in the occasions catalogue.

Go ahead and watch the video and then scroll down so you can see what I've created using the fun Sending Love Suite on page 14 of the Occasions catalogue.

This weekend I will be heading off to a conference for Canadian Stampin' Up! demonstrators.  Since I am on the Canadian Strategy Team, I know this conference has been in the works for a very long time.  I am thrilled it is actually becoming reality and I spent this week rehearsing my presentations and getting swaps ready.

Although this conference will be completely different from any other Stampin' Up! conference I have been to, I know it can never be a bad idea to come prepared with little gifts and treats for my demonstrator friends that I don't see very often.

Here's what I made.  Some wonderful Team S.T.I.C girls came over tonight and helped me mass produce these so that I have a bag full to share!

I love how the thinlits create a cut out that allows yo to slip and arrow through the heart or in my case just let the heart look like it's fluttering a bit.

The supply list is just below?  Have you started your Valentines crafting yet?  Make sure you have everything you need by heading over to my online store.
Don't forget, every $60 order will get you a free sale-a-bration gift!

Creating for Christ

If you've been following my blog you'll know that I have been on a journey exploring the concept and practice of Sabbath.  It has been wonderful and I know I have a lot more to enjoy and learn.
As Marianne and I talked about doing another Creating for Christ event, the Sabbath theme is what came to mind for this year's event.

We are excited to offer an opportunity for women to come and enjoy an event where the atmosphere is encouraging and restful and where you can have space for spiritual contemplation and growth.  There will also be stamping projects that support the theme and will be an encouragement to create and take home!.

Marianne and I look forward to welcoming you!  Please RSVP today.  The registration deadline is fast coming up near the end of this month on January 28th!

Here's some photos from last year's event.  I know many women shared how blessed and encouraged they felt after the event. I know life can be challenging at times so an event like this can give a moment of pause and perspective and refreshment!

Exciting Travel

So many exciting travel experiences to look forward to.  I'm just so excited so I thought I would share so you can enjoy the excitement with me!

This past week I was contacted by the travel company that Stampin' Up! uses to book the incentive trips.  The flights to Thailand for my husband and I have been booked and confirmed for July!  We are super excited!  I can't believe that Stampin' Up! rewards my hard work in my Stampin' business with an all expense paid trip for two to Thailand.  Isn't that incredible? I can't wait because incentive trips are such an amazing experience.

You can read about my experience on past incentive trips HERE and HERE

Also, this past week my Stampin' Up! points finalized in my demonstrator account to show that I can earn/redeem for the 2018 incentive trip to Alaska.  It's an Alaskan Cruise!  
To tell you the truth I never cruised before Stampin' Up! because I am prone to vertigo and motion sickness so I never wanted to take the chance to buy an expensive cruise and risk being sick the whole time.  
However, after I experienced my first cruise with Stampin' Up! I discovered that I can cruise AND I can enjoy it too! 
So I am thrilled to cruise to Alaska because I have never been and to go with my husband will be wonderful! 

As if Thailand and Alaska are not enough, registration for the next Stampin' Up! On Stage event was this week.  The main live event will be in Amsterdam.  I considered going there because I love the energy of a live event but I already have plans to go to Scotland in May with a girlfriend so it seemed silly to fly to Europe, come home just to turn around and fly back in another few weeks. 
I looked at all the satellite local locations.  There was an event in Toronto and I initially assumed I would attend the Toronto location since it would save on travel and I would be with the majority of the Team S.T.I.C girls.  However, when registration day approached, I couldn't get out of my mind my desire to travel.  My thoughts kept wandering to Calgary.  I've been wanting to go to Calgary to visit the Stampin' Up! Canadian office and I have some wonderful demonstrator friends out there...well you can guess what happened.  I decided to go to Calgary for the April On stage event.  I will miss the Team S.T.I.C girls incredibly...I will of course wear my purple Team S.T.I.C shirt...but I'm excited for the upcoming adventure. 

I love my Stampin' Up! journey!  Thank you so much for being a part of that journey and thanks for dropping in and letting me share my excitement with you!
