Here are all the interchangeable monthly pieces to place in the “O” postition
This little tote holds all the monthly pieces we made. It is made from 1/2 an acetate box and is open at the top!
I host events exclusively for my team from time to time, and this past weekend we had one of these events! I love doing these events. There’s just something about gathering together like-minded people who love to paper craft! This warms my heart!
I think everyone’s favorite project we made was the HOME project! There are a lot of these ideas on Pinterest! It was new to me though, so I had fun coming up with the interchangeable “O” pieces. Each monthly piece has a Velcro dot, and then the opposite Velcro dot is placed in the framed piece, the between the H and the M.
I found my frame at Hobby Lobby. The inside dimension is 4″ x 6″.
I also made a little tote that will hold all the monthly pieces. I found a video tutorial on how to make this on the uber creative Kelley Acheson’s blog HERE. It is made from half of an acetate box that Stampin’ Up sells. You can purchase these items on my Stampin’ Up website HERE. Don’t forget, if you spend $50, you can choose a FREE SALE A BRATION ITEM!
I won’t list all the items I used, I used almost everything in my craft room! LOL It was fun and simple, just took some time to cut and punch for everyone.
Here are some photos of our event! We had demonstrations, make and takes, prize patrol, catered lunch, swaps, and fun fun fun!

This is one of the projects I created for our weSTAMP Regionals Make and Takes. It’s super simplistic, and the cut out heart gives it a pop.
The card is 4 1/4″ x 4 1/4″. Recipe at the end of the blog post.
After you have the bird image stamped and colored, place a heart framelit right on top of the Very Vanilla piece, centering the little bird in the middle of the heart. Die cut this out, then adhere to Calypso Coral piece using Dimensionals. The heart will stand out.
Don’t forget, with every $50 ordered, you can choose FREE product from the Sale a Bration catalog on the right hand side of my sidebar!
Our first presenter was my sweet friend, Rhonda Morgan! She shared projects using the Petal Passion Suite AND the Memories & More Card Pack! That is a sometimes overlooked item in the spring catalog, and look what she did with it! She is so creative, and it was an honor and pleasure to have her present at our event! Aren’t her projects beautiful? THANKS RHONDA!!!!!
Yesterday was such an amazing day, I just love hanging with my team. To top it off, we had 2 other teams as guests, so it was TRIPLE FUN!
I can’t wait to share photos with you, and ideas from our demonstrations. You will be amazed at their creativeness!
The them of our event was obviously picnic! You can get away with picnic parties in January when you live in AZ! LOL
Let’s start off with the table goodies! Juli Steward made the adorable water bottle labels that went so well with our picnic theme! What is a picnic with out trash cans? These little cuties were ordered from a company in China. We actually used them for our scraps, and each person received one at their table. The name tags were made by Kimberley McQueen, they have a cute little ant on them. The picnic baskets were headed up by Becca Matlock and her team helped assemble those. The pattern to the picnic basket can be found HERE on my blog under tutorials. I love Becca’s creative touch to coordinate with our theme. The cute little lady bug bubbles container with our Regional logo on it was created by Donna Kish!
Here is the table all set up. Robin Higgins made the beautiful sunflower centerpieces – they go so well with our picnic theme!
Brenda Marshall and Becca Matlock greet the guests as they arrive.
Linda Rodenberg made this darling banner to welcome the guests! I just love to see the creativity of our team!
Today has been in the works for a LONG TIME! I love hosting team events, and today is the BIG DAY! So sorry I haven’t posted a lot this week – this event has consumed my time.
Here’s a sneak peek of the swag bag everyone will be receiving. I will definitely have more photos, including the projects we made! We have 3 guest speakers and this time have invited members of two other teams as well.

Today is going to be an AWESOME DAY!!!!! CAN’T WAIT!
I’ve been waiting a long time to share these photos with you!! This past weekend I had my “Regionals” team event. I have been doing these for a couple years now! This day is set aside for a fun, creative day doing what we all love to do – stamp! We also have AMAZING demonstrations by presenters that I hand pick.
One of the fun things we do each month is have a FUN bag! Our theme was summer, so this bag was a hit with the gals. It was quite a bit smaller than the other sizes we have had, but we decidided this bag will be great for our monthly swaps! This bag came from Oriental Trading.
Sue Parker is such a big help to me when I do this event! She is so good at computers and graphics. She even helps other demonstrators design and build their website! She made the laminated bag tags and name tags. Of course, they always go with our theme!
I’ve been waiting to share these projects with you! One of our make and takes was using the stamp set “Pun Intended”. This is a photo card, which means the recipient is photo on the card. All the gals were to bring a photo to our event. This photo is my youngest grandchild, Claire!
The camera is adhered using Dimensionals. It’s hard to see, but the lens was stamped twice, and punched out with 1/2″ circle. It is attached with Dimensionals. Then I attached a Basic Jewel on the end of the lens.
It’s always fun to decorate the inside of the card as well!
Here’s a photo of the teammates who could make it to the event. LOVE these girls!!!!!
More photos to come! Be sure and let me know if you are interested in joining my team so you can take part, too! weSTAMPERS participate whether they are local or out of state!
Our first presenter was Rhonda Morgan! I just love this gal! She is such a busy gal, yet took time to put together a BEAUTIFUL ensemble of projects, not to mention all her fun tips and business ideas as well! THANK YOU RHONDA!!!
Here are some of her projects. She focused on the Balloon Celebration Suite and how “SWEET” it was!! Take a peek at these projects!
Here are some photos from my quarterly weSTAMP Regionals event that was held on Saturday. These amazing gals on my team make it all worthwhile! I really enjoy putting on this! It warms my heart to hear the chatter going on and the friendships that have formed over the years! I would love to have you join us at my next one! If you are interested in joining in on the fun (whether you are local here in AZ OR out of state, you can be involved!). The BEST TIME to sign up to become a demonstrator is during Sale a Bration! You get $155 worth of ANY PRODUCT YOU WANT from any current catalog for only $99!
I get a kick out of finding fun bags for the projects and products that go in them. I forgot to take a close up of the bags, but you can see them pretty well in the above photo (click on the photo to enlarge it). They are SUPER GLITTERY and that part didn’t show up in the photo.
I also like to have a party favor for them. One of my team members, Jackie Rossell, designed and made these cute little Valentine treat holders. The bags are cellophane with polka dots and are in our new Spring Occasions catalog! I made the microwave caramel corn that was stuffed in them. This recipe is a STAPLE in our house (and QUITE DANGEROUS!) You can find the recipe HERE. I drizzled white chocolate in red and white colors to make it tie in with the Valentine theme.
Another team member who is a HUGE help to me is Sue Parker. She is talented in so many areas. She is always so willing to help me with graphics, posters, name tags, ANYTHING computer related!!! Look at these darling name tags she made. Click on the photo so it is enlarged a bit and check out the words she put on the conversation hearts!!! They are stamping related sayings!!! We have a card swap and then vote on our favorite swap. Here was the WINNING SWAP, made by CJ Boyce. Isn’t it beautiful? She colored the flower with Stampin’ Up markers and used 3 different colors on them. BEAUTIFUL and so deserving of the BEST SWAP AWARD!!I will have more photos to show you so keep checking back!
Here’s a photo of my brand new grandbaby who was born YESTERDAY! Isn’t she adorable? Look at all that HAIR! (I had 3 bald babies!) I just want to hold and squeeze her all day long! Please meet Claire Elizabeth Heiling, our son and daughter in laws brand new baby! Here I am 24 hours later at a big event for my team. I host quarterly Regional events for us to get together as a team and just have some good old fashioned stamping fun! Lots of prizes, stamping, demonstrations, and training. Not to mention friendships made (old and NEW) and YUMMY FOOD! I will be sharing more about this event – lots of photos with ideas to come! Be sure and check back!This is what I love most about my job, and what is important to me.
God will always be number one in my life. He is the reason for EVERYTHING I do. My goal in life is to please him (even though I fail over and over….)
Family is second. I LOVE that I have a job where I can spend time with my family and create hours that work for me around my family’s schedule. It just plain works!
My friends and Stampin’ Up team are so integral to my life. The funny thing is, when I became a demonstrator, none of my friends were into this hobby. I have been blessed to have a unique friendship with each and every person on my team. In my book there are no coincidences, and every team member is so special to me.
The Stampin’ Up Statement of the Heart is
“To LOVE what we do and SHARE what we love, as we help others enjoy CREATIVITY and worthwhile accomplishments….in this we make a DIFFERENCE.”
Right now Stampin’ Up is having an incredible promotion going on. I would love to to join my team and become a member of a special community of like-minded paper crafters. You don’t have to have a lot of experience in paper crafting – that’s the beauty of this! You can learn right along with us!
For only $99 you can sign up to become a demonstrator, and choose $155 worth of products! Basically that means that you can start purchasing at wholesale prices! There is FREE SHIPPING on your Starter Kit!!! Your Starter Kit is ANY PRODUCTS that you choose from any current catalog!
I promise you will meet some pretty incredible gals on my team, and I think you are really going to enjoy this group! Please email me if you have any questions about this, or want to give Stampin’ Up a try – you have nothing to lose! That’s why I decided to give it a try, I figured if it didn’t work for me, at least I received some pretty great products at a discount. I thoroughly enjoy everything about Stampin’ Up, and am still here after 10 years. 🙂
If you know you want to give it a try, you can go to my Stampin’ Up business page and sign up HERE!
Check out the awesome weekly deals this week! Here are some photos from my weSTAMP Regionals last month! We had such a great day together, stamping and having fun!!!
I am a candy corn FANATIC, so you can imagine how much fun this candy corn colored bag was for me! All you do is use post it notes to mark off the lines and sponge with ink and your sponge! I inked both sides of the bag.
I then turned our flat bags into gusseted bags! Just score 3 sides (sides and bottom, not the top) at 3/4″ and fold on score lines to create bag!
The goody bags pictured below were filled with projects supplies and new products. I found the orange and black bags at Oriental Trading Company.
The bag tags were made by my creative downline, Sue Parker! LOVE that gal, she is so good to me!!! THANK YOU SUE! I forgot to take a photo of the darling name tags, which coordinated with the bag tags.
Last Saturday was our weSTAMP Regionals for my team, followed by a Stamp Camp for team and customers. We had a wonderful day filled with FRIENDS, stamping, demonstrations, training, food, prizes, and MORE! I really don’t know what I would do without these amazing ladies in my life!
Here are some photos to help recap the event. I will be sharing more projects soon!
