Welcome to the Team – Thoughtful Blooms Card

Welcome back to my corner of the world

A couple of weeks ago I had one of my lovely customers decide to join my team as a hobby demo – so she could take advantage of the discount when buying her goodies – I wanted to give her a personal thank you for making that decision and gave her a package of goodies along with a hand-made card!

Sale-a-bration is the perfect time to join Stampin’ UP! as a demonstrator, there are extra goodies offered as well as the usual great deal of choosing $125 worth of any goodies in the the catalogs for just $99.  When I joined around 9 1/2 years ago it was one of the best decisions I have ever  made (after marrying my husband, of course 🙂 )  If you scroll down the post a little further there is a link that will take you straight to more details.

Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop ~ Artistic Licence

Welcome to the  Ink & Share Scrapbook blog hop,  we are  group of international Stampin’ UP! demonstrators sharing our ideas and creativity with you.

You will have either arrived from  Jo’s post or starting here ~ either way WELCOME.  This month we have  Artistic Licence to use any of the products in the Annual Catalog or the new 2020 Mini Catalog ~ I think this page could be used to keep memories from just about any occasion, birthday, graduation, engagement, anniversary!

Once again I have chosen to use a 12 x 12 page – mainly because Stampin’ UP! has 12 x 12 card stock in all its colors which gives me a fantastic choice but also because they have the 12 x 12 Page Protectors and Albums.

Pressed Petals Easel Card with Sticky Notes

Welcome back to my corner of the world

Today’s card is all about my 200th video!  I chose an Easel card fun fold that has a calendar and a pad of sticky notes, so this will sit on your desk for a whole year!

I also used one of the 2020 Sale-a-bration items, the Small Bloom Punch and Here’s a Card Stamp set, that is in the 2020 Mini Catalog as well.  The Pressed Petal Specialty Designer Paper is so very pretty and I have added to the prettines with flowers, leaves, pearls and the very delicate Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.  If you love the fold but don’t want to add the calendar and sticky notes I have included an idea for just making the card.   So enjoy………………………………

Welcome back to my corner of the world

The 2020 Mini Catalog went live on January 4th as well as Sale-a-bration.

So what is Sale-a-bration??    It is a great way to get FREE stuff ~ for every $50 you spend on Stampin’ UP! goodies (exc shipping and tax)  – either from the Annual Catalog or the 2020 Mini  Catalog or even the Clearance Rack; you can choose a  Sale-a-bration catalog item and there are 12 different items to choose from ~ you can collect as many in one order as you want.

As a demonstrator I was able to place my order in December so I was able to get my hands on some of the free products ahead of time.  There are a couple of links to the right to get to both the new catalogs, if would like your own copies, click here  and I will send you them for FREE!

I made today’s card with one of those sets…..The Gang’s All Meer ~ the cutest set with Meerkats!!

Fantastic Stampin’ UP! Joining offer

Welcome back to my corner of the world

I have been a crafter all my life, my Dad taught me to knit, my grandmother taught me to crotchet, my Mum taught me embroidery and I took myself off to classes to learn to make bobbin lace.  All of these are wonderful outlets for my creativity but all of them take time to come up with a completed project…………  SO that is when I added card crafting to my life – I can create and finish a project in as little as 10 minutes or maybe as long as 30 or 40 mins depending on the complexity especially if it is a scrapbook page.
