Celebrating Stampin' Milestones + June Special Offer

It has been a crazy couple months with trying to sell our house and keeping up with travel for family events and all of the kids' sports. We're getting ready for another big trip -- the Stampin' Up! Thailand incentive trip and will be leaving in 10 days! I feel like I have so much to do before we go!

And in the middle of all this craziness, I am celebrating two big milestones with my business. Next week will mark 15 years that I have been a demonstrator! And a few weeks ago, I surpassed my $500,000 career sales milestone! WOW! That is a lot of stamps!!

My son asked me last week if I liked designing cards. And I hesitated to answer him. Yes, of course, I like designing cards! But it *is* work. And there are days when I would rather be playing games with the kids or relaxing by the pool instead of designing cards. It's a struggle, but I think I have a good balance going. The truth is that being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator is a job. It's a fun job, but it's a job. I make income that supports my family and pays for many of our household bills. We are buying a new house, in part, because of the income I earn as a demonstrator.

When you support my business, you are supporting my family. You are making it possible for me to continue to work from home. To be here when they get sick, to feed them lunch all summer, to take them to the pool, to run them to all of their games and practices (with four kids...that's pretty much EVERY night!!), to snuggle on the couch, to volunteer in their classrooms, and to be an example of what hard work can accomplish.

From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU for being part of my Stampin' family. Whether you have been a team member, a customer, a blog fan, supporter, and/or friend -- I would not be where I am today without all of you!

Hello Friend Wreath Card + Stamp of the Month Club Reveal

I am excited about this month's Stamp of the Month Club card kit. I picked a stamp set that I think it probably off everyone's radar, but I think it has a lot of potential. The Hello Friend stamp set coordinates with a new Heat Embossing Technique project kit, but the stamp set stands alone well! Here's the first card I designed for my Stamp of the Month Club.

Oh So Eclectic Masculine Card

I won the Oh So Eclectic stamp set as a door prize at On Stage in April. The coordinating die set is super fun with detailed images and framelits to coordinate with the stamped images. I designed this clean and simple card for a swap before I could get the framelits. I wanted to create a masculine design. This would have been perfect for Father's Day!

Eastern Palace Die Cut Medallion Card

If you had your eye on the Eastern Palace Bundle that was offered in May, but didn't get it, now you can get all of the products individually! You can pick and choose which goodies you want from this new suite. But if you ask me, I think you'll still want them all! I love the way the Eastern Medallion Thinlit dies coordinate with the Eastern Beauty stamp set and Eastern Gold Vinyl stickers. And the new In Colors featured in the designer paper and mini tassels complete the regal look and feel! Check out my video below for even more samples during these new products!

This is one of my favorite cards with the Eastern Palace Bundle. I love the pop of color under the die cut medallion. I used a 2" circle of Tranquil Tide behind the Very Vanilla cardstock.

Birthday Memories Die Cut Fox Card

At Stampin' Up! On Stage events, demonstrators get to see and play with new products before anyone else. This card was one of the make and takes that we made at the April On Stage event when they previewed the new Annual Catalog. I love the way the coordinating framelits die cut not only the stamped images, but also the designer paper! I don't like to watercolor, so to be able to easily out a fully colored image to use on a card is very appealing to me! If you like to color your own, you can use the stamp set image and use the other side of the designer paper on your project! Save 10% when you buy the bundle and get all three products together!

This Little Piggy Makes Me Happy

I am obsessed with This Little Piggy! He's just so darn cute! I used the paper-piecing technique again for this card. I really like how sharp the color looks. Just stamp it twice -- once on white and once on Powder Pink and then fussy cut the pig from the pink and glue him over the one on white. Easy peasy! Another great new In Color combination: Berry Burst, Powder Pink, and Lemon Lime Twist.
