Customers---for every $50 that you order, you receive one FREE stamp set or the new set of Rub-ons from the Sale-A-Bration brochure.
Hostesses---for every $300 in your show sales, you receive one FREE stamp set or the new set of Rub-ons from the SAB brochure.
Sign up to become a Demonstrator---and you get to choose ANY stamp set in the catalog for FREE!!!! Yes, that includes even the most expensive set, which I believe is $47.95! There are lots of other benefits when you are a demonstrator, too. Ask me about those and I'll be happy to share with you.
Now, one of the most important pieces of information is the dates for SAB. It begins tomorrow, FEB 1st and goes through MARCH 17th. I know that you will definitely want to place an order, probably some of you will want to do shows and I bet there are even a couple of you that have thought about becoming a demo! I look forward to hearing from all of you. :0)

What do you think of them? We thought they were yummy!
Now, I have received some BEAUTIFUL cards in the mail in the last couple of weeks, and I wanted to share those with you. First, the winner of my blog candy sent me this beautiful card! She also sent me some bright fun fur to use on my cards! Thank you so much, bluemoon!!! I love all the sparkle on your card. I wish it showed up better in the picture.
The other card was from my friend, Kathryn. I just love her card! She used a Stampin' Up! set called Abundant Joy which just retired in December. I love how she used the premade card that was so decorative and then stamped, and I think colored with pencils. (Is that right, Kathryn?) Anyway, however she did it, she made a beautiful and special card for me. Thank you so much!
Lastly, here is a thank you card that I made. I used the Baroque Motifs stamp set. My color choices were Ruby Red, Old Olive, Cameo Coral, and Confetti White. The accessories that I used were the Scallop Circle Punch, the 5 Petal Punch and one of the Antique Brass jumbo eyelets. I think this card turned out well. I think that the Baroque Motifs stamp set is so versatile. This is definitely a "go to" set when I need an elegant card! Do you have this set yet?
The last fun thing that happened so far this week was that I found out that I won a prize in my Stampin' Up! upline group. I don't know what it is yet, but I should be receiving it in the mail later this week!! I can't wait to see what it is. Anything free is always FUN!! I'll make sure to show you when I get it.
Have a great day! I can't wait to see some of your creations!

Here are some cards that I have been working on recently. This is my "Elizabeth" card. Why do I call it that? you ask. Well my good friend, Elizabeth, created this card at one of my camps. I had designed a card using this set and these colors, but she did her own thing at camp and came up with this beauty! Thanks for the inspiration, Elizabeth. This card uses the Doodle This stamp set. The colors are Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery and So Saffron. Then lots of Dazzling Diamonds glitter is add to make the card beautiful!!

Now, I wanted to share one quick card. I sent the BLOG CANDY to my winner, Bluemoon, in Canada. It just arrived this past Friday. I had included a card made using the set that she won (since I had another set just like that). I also wanted to use the same colors of cardstock, ink and ribbon so she started with one card example using those items. Here is a picture of the card that I sent her. (All items used in this card are Stampin' Up!.)
Once again, Bluemoon, I hope that you are enjoying your new stuff!! Have a great day, everyone. It is a holiday for lots of folks so maybe you will have time to stamp at least a little today. :0)

I have lots more cards that I made today, but I really want to share this beautiful card made for me by my talented downline, Connie D. I was so excited to get this wonderful card in the mail. You may be seeing something like this coming up at one of my stamp camps soon! :0) Thanks, Connie! I just love how she made this look just like a piece of paper in a clipboard by using the Spiral Punch and the Round Tab Punch, plus those brads.
I am going to sign off for tonight and try to show you some more pictures tomorrow. Have a great day!

The third prize was a set with a notebook and a candle. I used the new Infinite Goodness stamp set. It is such a beautiful stamp set!! I think that you might need this one. :0) Anyway, I also used some hodgepodge hardware and ribbon on the notebook. The picture of the candle isn't the best, but I used the pear and the words on it also. Jackie D. won this prize. Enjoy writing in your journal with your candle flickering beside you.
And lastly was the Grand Prize!! It was a retired stamp set called Flower Garden, plus 1 sheet of each of the Soft Subtles cardstock, 3 sheets of Whisper White cardstock, 3 sheets of Confetti White cardstock, a glue stick, a 2 way glue pen, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, and a bag with all sorts of fun accessories, like ribbon, buttons, hodgepodge, and rhinestone brads. The winner of this great prize was Jan D.!!! I hope that you have fun with your new Stampin' Up! toys!!
I hope that those of you who were able to come to the Open House had a great time. I look forward to seeing you at upcoming stamp camps and other events. Maybe you would like to do a Stampin' Up! show. I'd be happy to do that for you; just give me a call.

For these Valentine's I used two different Stampin' Up! stamp sets: Happy Heart Day and Time Well Spent. Time Well Spent is a Level 3 Hostess Set, so you can only earn that by having a show with a certain amount of sales. But the really cool thing is that ALL current Stampin' Up! Demos received this set for FREE as a gift from Shelli (the owner of SU!)!! Now are you interested in hearing more about being a demo? Just let me know and I can give you all the details! :0)
Have a great day! Make a little time for stamping if you can.

Here are two projects that I've done---one recently and one this past summer. The letter "A" was done last summer. I bought the letter at Michael's and it is about 10" tall. I used the Stampin' Up! set called Bugs and Kisses to stamp all the cute little critters on it with all different colors in the Bold Brights family. Then I tied some coordinating bright colored grosgrain ribbons on and my project was done in 10 minutes!!! I entered it in a local fair and won a blue ribbon for it! :0)
The other project is the one I did just a few days ago. I am loving these great new Rub-Ons that Stampin' Up! has in the new Spring/Summer catalog! I have never worked with Rub-Ons before although I had heard of them. I'm so glad that Stampin' Up! came out with their own. This flower is from the Rub-On set called Eastern Elegance. These are just beautiful! I found the little bottle at Michael's also (and it only cost $.99) and I loved that it was kind of heart shaped---just in time for Valentine's Day. Then I did the Rub-Ons on the front and back and added some pretty purple bath salts. To decorate the top, I used some black grosgrain ribbon and one of the little flowers from the Pretties Kit. This, too, was a super easy and quick project that people think you spent lots of time creating. You are definitely going to need some of these Rub-Ons!
I have lots of other things that I have been working on, but I'm getting tired. We started back to school today---and since I homeschool that doesn't mean sending them out to the bus stop. :0) So I am a little tired and need to check some of their work from today before I can go to bed. I'll be posting more stuff soon.
Have a great day! I hope you can make some time for stamping today!
