Wow! When I signed up to be a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator 17 years ago to get a discount on my loooooong wishlist of stamping supplies, I never imagined that this is where I would be 17 years later. Stampin’ Up! not only supplied me with fabulous stamping supplies over the years, they also encouraged my love of travel through conventions around the US and incentive trips around the world.

Yesterday we received our travel packet for the upcoming Mediterranean cruise next month. My husband has never expressed an interest in traveling to Europe so I’m super excited that this free trip from Stampin’ Up! was the key to getting him there!! It’s the first time in 10+ years that we’ll have a full week together without the kids. Yippee!!

Speaking of the kids, I love the flexibility of being a demonstrator. Over the years it’s allowed me to be a full time demonstrator, a stay-at-home mom, a work-at-home mom and now a homeschooling mom! It’s also allowed me to earn extra money when we needed it, get out of the house and have adult conversation when I needed it and generally fit my work in around my family. What a blessing!

So today I would like to say THANK YOU to everyone who makes this dream job a reality for me. Today I’ve got a giveaway and some specials just for you. Thank you for being part of my Stampin’ Up! adventure. You’re the best!

17th Anniversary Giveaway

“I am not creative.” Have you ever said that? I know I sure have! Especially when I was first getting started with stamping and card making. I had NO idea what I was doing. What drew me to Stampin’ Up! was how all of their products coordinated. I was frustrated by trying to match ink and paper colors at the local craft stores and loved that Stampin’ Up! did it for me. It’s one of the things I still love most about their products so for my anniversary I’m giving away one of my favorite coordinating products: the Number of Years stamp set & Large Numbers Framelits Dies.  Congratulations to our winner: Marcia McCullough!

Anniversary Specials

One of my favorite things now is to help others get started as a demonstrator with Stampin’ Up! (Last year I was #8 in the US for helping new demonstrators get started!)

Whether you just want a discount on your stamping supplies or you want to build a business to help with your family finances, I’m here to help and encourage you. Order your starter kit by April 30th & I’ll gift you with a Number of Years stamp set & Large Numbers Framelits Dies bundle when you become a qualifying demonstrator.

Surprise! Here’s a sneak peek at the NEW 2016-2017 Annual Catalog from Stampin’ Up! Many of you have been asking about it so I wanted to answer your questions about how you can get one. As a thank you to my customers I believe in sending catalogs to you for free. If you place a Stampin’ Up! order through me in April you will be the FIRST to get the new catalog because I’m sending one with your thank you card. 

Shop Now to get your catalog first!

NOTE: If you checked the “No” box next to “Allow my demonstrator to contact me with order updates and other important information”, then I don’t know that you placed an order and I don’t have your mailing information to send you one. If you’re not sure, log in to your account at and click on “My Account” at the top and then click on the My Demonstrator tab. Change that no to YES! so that you get a thank you card from me when you place an order!! If you have “No” checked and you already placed an order in April, please contact me here.

I will begin taking requests for the NEW catalog mid-May. If you would like a copy of the current 2015-2016 annual catalog or the smaller Occasions catalog, you can request one here. 

I have done a lot of card making over the years and my favorite technique to use is the One Sheet Wonder. If you’ve never taken one of my online classes, now is the time. I’d love to show you how to take ONE sheet of paper, cut it up according to a template and make it into a bunch of cards.

Through Monday, May 2nd you can register for the Valentine Edition One Sheet Wonder Class for ONLY $17!!! (This class is usually $77!) Don’t let the “Valentine” part fool you. The templates and techniques in this class can be used for ANY Occasion as demonstrated by the cards my sister made using the “Valentine” templates (see photos above).

REGISTER NOW FOR ONLY $17 and take the class whenever you have the time. You’ll get instant access so you can start right away or the class templates & videos will be there when you are ready for them. There’s no time limit on this class so now is the time to grab it!

Once again, THANK YOU and don’t forget to leave a comment below this post for a chance to win the Number of Years Bundle!!
