Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up!

Can you say GORGEOUS?

I love this paper!  Currently during Saleabration you can get if FREE for a $50 order.

I think we should all contact Stampin' Up! and request they carry it in the next catalog!!!

It is elegant and has so many coloring options!

I choose to use a Brayer for these cards because I was making 50 of them to send out to my customers this month.

The brayer made it fast and easy to make!

Here is the card 

This satin ribbon screams elegant!

I used the Decorative Label Punch for my sentiment.

Here is the video I made

Where in the world are your pictures?

I use my phone for photos.
I use my camera.
Where do they go?
Into my computer hard drive.

Or do you have photos in a box somewhere?

Can I share them with others there?
Well maybe.

But the best way is to print them and put them in an album.

I am not talking scrapbooking.  

I am talking a memory keeping system called Project Life.
If you don't know what that is, don't worry about that.

What I want you to think about is getting your photos into a system.  And that system is Project Life.

These cute little boxes that are available in different themes store so easy!  Here is how I store mine.

This is a shoe organizer from Target!

Trust me to say that popping your photos into an album, add a few cute cards to add color to your album, jot down a few thoughts on the pages and you are done!

Oh, you can get even more creative if you have time.

But that is usually the challenge...NO TIME!

If you can give 6-8 hours a month you can get a lot done!


Print your photos.  Either at home (costly) or upload them to a print service such as Target, Walgreens, CVS, etc.

Organize the photos in a box.  Buy one at a local craft store.

Order an album.  Two sizes to choose from.
Page inserts.  Several to choose from to fit your album.  You will need about 5 packs to fill up an album
A card Collection and a coordinating Accessory kit.  Several designs available.

  1. Grab those photos 
  2. Pop them into the page protector sheets.
  3. Add the card collections that you want.  Choose by colors that you like!  Don't go by the names of the card collections.
  4. Go back and accessorize with the matching Accessory kits if you want
  5. Do any journaling (notes) on those pages.
  6. DONE!

Simple, quick, easy.

I have listed below the supplies below that you need to get started.

If you don't have a paper trimmer you may need one of those too.

You ready?  Do you have questions?  Email me those!

I have a tip sheet to help you if you place an order for any Project Life products from me

St. Patrick's Day Inspiration

Pinterest Inspired
I was asked to donate a basket for an auction.
The theme was St. Patrick's Day
So off to Pinterest I went to find a cute inspiration for the basket tag.

I found this card 

and I made this for my basket!

So cute!
I used mostly punches to make the little Leprechaun!

Stampin' Up! has new Saleabration Items!

Stampin' Up! Saleabration is still in full swing!
It ends March 31, 2015.

Since moving to Arizona most of my stamp business has been Online Card kits to all of my stamping friends back in Texas.

But I recently offered a Card Class in my new town.

As I begin meeting new friends I am starting to offer in home classes.

At the card class and one of the attendees handed me her order of $79.

So that she could enjoy the Salebration goodies (choose one of the SAB items for FREE when you shop for more than $50)

I asked her if she had ever considered becoming a demonstrator?

I knew she has loved the products for several years.
She shared how she makes simple cards and sells them for a nominal fee at her church.

She then takes the profits and buys food for the church food pantry.  What a wonderful mission!

She said no.  No one has really asked her.  Plus, she doesn't want to sell.

I told her that 90% of the demonstrators simply enjoy the benefits of being a demonstrator to support their hobby!

Most don't have classes or build it as a business.

The Starter Kit is $99.
Totally customizable.
You choose what you want in the kit!

I asked my class attendee to take her $79 order home and consider if she was interested in upping that to $99 and get the benefits!

A few days later she decided that it would be a good thing for her to join!

FREE SHIPPING on Starter Kit
30% OFF first order of $150 (placed in first 45 days after joining)
FREE GIFT for joining
Here are the FREE Options

So, how about you?
Are you ready to support your hobby?
Let's chat!

Still in Hawaii

As a demonstrator I am blessed to have stamping friends all over!

Yesterday I spent the day again with fellow demonstrator Cindy Baughman.

She is such an amazing host!

We went to a flea market, had shave ice with ice cream and went to her house to stamp!

Plus had lunch at Disney Hawaii Hotel and we saw Mickey and Minnie!

Today I am meeting up with one of my stamping customers from Texas who is passing thru Hawaii today!

Sure helps me pass the day as my husband is working!

I hate to leave here on Friday!
Makes me sad.
But back to work I must go!
