Last call for Free SAB set

There is still time to get this cute chick set before it is gone forever!

Love the colors! 

I will be placing one more order before SAB is over. 
I will send that one in on the 30th of March.

More Stamp Along cards

Here are a few more cards that will be available at the Library on Monday.
This one uses the free set Avant Garden. 
The greeting is stamped too high (close to the image) but you can fix that when you stamp yours! 

The dragonfly with some of that free DSP.

These were made using the other free DSP. This is a technique for several quick cards.
You can choose the DSP design that you want. 
When you get your free pack you can cut it and make loads of quick and easy cards.

Hope to see you on Monday!

Thank you!

Stamp Along Cards for Monday

Here are a few of the cards that will be available on Monday at the Stamp Along. 

Easter is coming! Do you send cards at Easter? 

This one is of the "cute" variety. 


This one is just "Too darn cute!
A  little labor intense but so worth it if you like punch art! 


More tomorrow. 
I hope to see you on Monday! 

The hostess code is:

Thank you!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Do you send cards for St. Pat's Day?
They are very similar but quite different. 
How many differences can you find? 
Put it in the comments, please! 
You can pick either one or combine the elements that you like the best from each at the Stamp Along next Monday at the Library.

Thank you!

More Swap Cards

Thank you cards are always practical. This TY set for free with a $50 order during SAB is a great set!
The top left is by Patti Skiba and the bottom right is the one I did at my home workshops in January. 


These three have the debossed folders used on them. 
So pretty when you stamp over them. 
You may recognize the one in the back as it was at the last Stamp Along. 
The bottom left is by Rose Grunewald. The bottom right is one that I did to demo the backing for the hot air balloon. 

Then we have some using the dragonfly.
The one in front was my swap card. The top left is by Candy Michael.  

The Beautiful You set is one that I am beginning to like more and more as I use it. 
The one on the left is by Deb Aniol and the other one is one I did and was at the last SA.

Kathy Beck made this one.

The Taco Truck is another one of the free sets. 
So many ways to use this one. Carrie Schumacher and Robin Kenton did these two. 

Kim Bolzenthal used the Delicate Detail stamps to make the trim on a wedding cake! 

Another one of the Hey Chick. 
Another one without a name. I think I have lost some of the name slips that came with this swap.
So sorry. Love the use of the foil in the folder! 

These two are by Becky Falch and Christine Bertram.

I hope that you have gotten some good ideas for using your free sets. 
Or some ideas of which free set you need to have! 
Remember, you can get one for a $50 order AND get free shipping if you participate in the Stamp Along next Monday, March 13th, at the Lester Library. 
Next post will have some of the cards that will be there this time. 
Yes, there will be some Easter and St. Patrick's Day cards.

A few swap cards

Today I am sharing a few of the swap cards I received in my most recent swap. 
These all feature the Avant Garden set that you can get for free with a $50 order during SAB.
Do you like flowers? 
I didn't think I needed this set but after seeing these samples....
The one on the right is from Rose Grunewald. That one has a beautiful inside, as well. 
The one in the middle backs from Susan Legits. She has also used the Inside the Lines DSP which is another choice for a free item. 
The other two do not have names on them. 

This group uses that Hey Chick set. 
I think that one has been a favorite. 
Back left is the one I did for the swap. I stamped "her" right on that Inside the Lines DSP and colored with markers. 
The one on the right is one that has been to the Stamp Along that I saw on Pinterest, I think. 
The front left has no name and the front right is from Deb Aniol.
There is still time for you to get a free set. The sale a bration goes until the end of March. 
I would love to do a home workshop with you to help you get some free product besides. 
Give me a call if you would like to fit one in March. 

The hostess code for online orders this month is 
Thank you to all that order!

Thank You!!!

This is the card that I used for my hostesses during January.
I hope you can see the dragonflies in the background.
The large saying is from a free set that you can still get as long as SAB is going.
(March 31st)
I would like to say Thank You to each and every one of you that has ever placed an order with me.
In December, I reached a milestone in my career! I have sold 400K.
It is a far cry from the Million dollar sellers that you read about on the SU! site but both
Stampin' Up! and I are very happy with it! 

Stampin' Up! is a wonderful company and appreciates their demonstrators!
I received this hand stamped card from Rich Jutkins, President/COO of SU!
It had a very nice hand written note of congratulations inside.

About a week later, I received this letter and pin from Shelli and Sara.

Close up of the pin.

Then when I was just ready to leave for the Stamp Along, last week, I received a call from Stampin' Up! to congratulate me in person.
They sure do make you feel special just for doing what you love to do!
Thank YOU for the part that you have contributed to my success!
I appreciate each and every one of you!
Right now, during SAB (until the end of March) I am working on a goal of mine to better my sales and adding to my team than I did last year.
If you have ever thought of signing up to be a demo...
(you NEVER have to demo anything)
just to get the discount....please ask me about it!
You get $125 of product of your choice plus any two (the most expensive ones) stamp sets from the catalog if you sign up during SAB for only $99 with no shipping added!

If you need some product, please email me or use the hostess code below.
Thank you, again!
