Holiday Treats


Guess what? I got to see the NEW SPRING CATALOG AND THE SALE A BRATION catalogs last night at the catalog premiere!!!! You are in for a TREAT with these catalogs, I PROMISE!

Here is the treat I made for my team  members. The sentiment says: We “tissue” a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!” Inside is package of tissues. For this project, it doesn’t pay to give dimensions because there are so many different sizes of tissues, you just have to kind of measure the ones you have and make it fit. It’s super easy to make!

There were many of us who met for a quick bite to eat before it started. What a fun bonding time with my team! You could FEEL the excitement in the air! Then we met up with the others at the movie theater and enjoyed our time together at the event. MANY of my team won PRIZE PATROL and got new stamp sets from the new catalogs!

Today is the LAST DAY of the Holiday Extravaganza Sale! Order online HERE or email me if you would like me to order for you! Don’t miss out!

I think the biggest reason I LOVE Stampin’ Up so much is the friends I have met over the years. Last night was our team Christmas party! We did something totally different this year and played BUNCO for PRIZES! There were lots of laughs, fun, friends and BONDING moments, not to mention YUMMY FOOD and BEAUTIFUL PROJECTS during our gift exchange!

Here are some photos from our evening!

Artisan achiever Connie Collins came up with the candy cane idea, LOVE her ideas! I switched out the tag and used the current Ornamental Pines stamp set.


For the gift exchange I got  little more help from my Silhouette machine and cut out images from White Christmas. You can see the bag in this photo.DSCN4880Watermarked Photo

Here’s a tag I made – I  CASED  Ilina Crouse. I found the ornaments at Hobby Lobby.IMG_5119

weSTAMP Regionals

I LOVE my TEAM! In fact, I love them so much that I truly enjoy hosting “weSTAMP Regionals” just for them! It’s a full day spent making projects, training, demonstrations, PRIZE PATROL, games, and enjoying a lot of displays! I host these about every quarter and they are for everyone who is on my team. Even the out of towners can participate, and receive the GOODIE BAG containing products and projects to be completed that day.

I’ll be sharing some of our projects that we made that day. Here is one of the favorites, Frankie out of the French Fry box! I’m sure you’ve seen many of these on Pinterest. That’s where I got the idea. I added a cello bag (actually it’s a cello envelope with the top cut off!) with some Hershey kisses inside along with some plastic bugs. The tag says “Bugs and Kisses” for a play on words.

weSTAMP Card Swap Winners!

One of the highlights of my month includes spending time with my team weSTAMP! We had such a fun evening this week!!

The theme of our swap this month was making a card or 3-D item using products from the Sale a Bration or Spring Catalogs. We displayed everyone’s swaps and then voted on our favorites. There was a TIE! Here are the two winners, complete with the diva crown and sash that they proudly got to wear. The sash says BEST weSTAMP Swap, and it has a crown with jewels on it.

Here is Jennie Portonova’s darling winning swap:


Here is a photo of Kathy Mobley and her beautiful winning swap as well! (Kathy is the gal who made the sash, too!)



You can be a part of this fun group as well! We welcome hobbyists, business builders and everyone in between!

Reindeer Noses

Here are some treats we gave our downline at the weSTAMP Christmas party! I saw the idea on Zoe’s blog last year HERE.

Have you ever checked out Miss Tina’s Fonts? You can find her website HERE. I LOVELOVELOVE her fonts! I used the font “Skinny Jeans” on the words: Rudolph Noses.
I have uploaded the “Reindeer Noses” pdf that I made. Feel free to use this! Just click HERE. I printed this on Crumb Cake paper, and then stamped white snowflakes on it. Just eyeball it when you put it in the top note die. (I first printed it on computer paper to figure out where to set the cardstock on the Big shot, then used the real cardstock).Here are some photos of our weSTAMP Christmas party from earlier this week.

weSTAMP Gift Exchange

Here’s a photo of the gift I made for our weSTAMP gift exchange. The letters are cut out of wood, and then covered in Holly Berry Bouquet DSP. The letters are about 8″ tall. I found the oversized jingle bell at a local “Big Box” store.
I found the letters on Etsy HERE.

weSTAMP Christmas Party

Last night was our weSTAMP Christmas party!! Here’s a group photo of us! We had such a wonderful evening filled with FUN, FOOD, and FRIENDSHIP! Stamping was involved, OF COURSE!
Here’s a photo of what everyone made. It is an 8×10 Christmas shadow box. Our own Nancy Riley designed this and got everything ready for the evening. Isn’t it beautiful?? THANK YOU NANCY!!! (The largest squares in the box are 2″ x 2″)
Check back, more photos of our party will follow!!

weSTAMP Swaps

What a fun gathering we had this month for weSTAMP! We have quite a few new gals joining our group, that is SO EXCITING!

We always start the evening off with a make and take. Stephanie came up with this fun little Halloween project! It features a medallion and would make a cute wine bottle tag or fun to hang on a cabinet knob or door! THANKS STEPHANIE! The theme for our swap was to use something from the new Holiday Mini Catalog. Here are this month’s swaps!

We have swaps that are open to anyone who is in weSTAMP!

I joined Stampin’ Up about 5 1/2 years ago. My biggest fear was how I was going to make the $300 minimum every quarter! My deciding factor was that I knew I was going to purchase things whether I bought wholesale or retail. So why not get the starter kit and get a jump start on awesome products at a discounted price? I signed up and even 5 1/2 years into it, I am just as excited about Stampin’ Up as the day I signed up! I hope you will consider this opportunity, but time is running out! The deadline is Monday, Oct. 31st. You can sign up on my online demonstrator site HERE.
Feel free to email me if you have ANY questions, or just want to chat about what is involved with being a demonstrator. Remember, you don’t have to hold workshops or classes! You can sign up just for the discount and be a hobbyist demonstrator! Also, minimums aren’t due until March 31st, 2010, if you decide to continue your demonstratorship.
