While I am sailing the Med here are some Project Ideas for you!

I am sailing in the Mediterranean!  Whooo Hooo!  And it's because of you!

I love what I do and I love that you support me!  Thank you for making this trip possible for me.  The year they announced this incentive trip was the year I moved from Texas to Arizona and the idea of Online Stamp Clubs and Classes was born!  And because you love this concept too it helped me earn this dream trip!

Enjoy these ideas while I am gone!  For those of you that are friends with me on Facebook I am sure there will be some photos of me on the cruise! I know I will be limited by being International but surely I can get some posted!  If not there will be a ton when I return!

And for those of you that received your catalog from me I hope you are enjoying that too!

Remember some of these ideas are using New Stamp Sets and Accessories from the 2016-2017 Stampin' Up! Catalog!

Would you like a gift from Sharon?

When I return from my Mediterranean Cruise I have to clean out all of the retired items from my craft room!  

Every year I never know what to do with them!  Since they are retired I can't use them in my business.  So here is my idea!  Until May 31, 2016 EVERYONE that places a minimum $30 order on my website will receive a GRAB BAG of retired items!

May I recommend some gift giving shopping for you?  Take a look at the retired Card Kits! Stash them now to give to someone for their Birthday, Christmas or just because!  I sent my daughter Kayla the Watercolor Wishes Card kit.  She said, "This changes my life!  Now I don't have to pay $5 per card and everything is included for me to make 20 cards!"  Ever since you moved away I don't have your stash to shop from!

If you place a $50 order I WILL SEND MORE GOODIES!
If you place a $100 order EVEN MORE WILL COME YOUR WAY!  I think you get the message!

You never know what all it will be!  I have a ton of Designer Series Papers, Buttons, RIBBON!, Oh the list goes on and on!

I feel this will be a great way to Thank you  all for being my loyal customers!

Cards for Guy's are easy with this set!

I hear it all the time how hard it is to stamp a card for the man in your life.  Well not when you use Guy Greetings Stamp set!
I just love this set and have used it a ton of times!

Thank goodness it will be in the new catalog!
