Making a difference

There are many reasons why I am a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. Of course the main reason I joined was to get a discount on all my crafting needs. However I did check out the company before I joined as I am a bit of a greenie and also like to think a company I am associated with has more than making money on their agenda. Well I was happy to find that Stampin' Up! is "green" they recycle their paper and donate their rubber off cuts to playgrounds. Not only that they donate to all our charity events as well as donate $3.00 to Ronald McDonald Charities with every RMH stamp sold. 

This video is a little late now as it was pre-Christmas, but I just wanted to show you all, how they make a BIG difference in peoples lives and this is something that resonates with me.

A wonderful husband

I am so lucky. My husband is such a support of my crafting. He made me my first craft room many years ago by splitting the back of our garage. Then later he built me my own special studio. Now the latest is my ribbon holder.

I mentioned to him that by sawing a plastic pipe in half it would hold my ribbons. No problem, off he goes and this is what it looks like.

I was so happy with these, that I thought I had better sort out my card and paper. For some reason I seem to be on a cleaning spree at the moment, so my cupboard that stores my card and paper had a huge clean up.

I even managed to make an acetate box for my notecards and envelopes, that fitted perfectly in between the 12x12 stacks of Glimmer paper and DSP stacks

It is so good to have everything organised and easily accessible. I give thanks to my husband everyday that I walk into my studio. He is such a treasure.

January is flying by and that means a month of Sale-A-Bration is nearly gone. I do hope you have your wish lists filled as there is no better time than in January, February and March. Spend $90 and you get a free Sale-A-Bration item.

This month is also the start back to my classes. The first of these classes is going to be a little special, as I want to showcase some of the Occasions Catalogue stamp sets and the free, Sale-a-brations stamps sets. This class is going to be broken up over 2 sessions to allow everyone to attend. We shall be making 6 gift cards and envelopes and then making a decorated box with the Envelope Punch Board to hold all your projects. This would make the perfect gift.

Can you believe it? Stampin’ Up! is entering its 30th year of stamping fun and the celebrations are beginning. In 1988, Shelli and her sister started crafting in her living room, dreaming of being able to express their creativity while establishing meaningful relationships. Stampin’ Up! is the culmination of that dream.

I have been lucky to have been a demonstrator for 5 years and in that time I have made so many fabulous friends and have shared my joy of crafting with many people. 
Stampin' Up! will be celebrating for the whole year, so that will mean 12 months of specials. I also want to celebrate and after discussing with other demonstrators in my team, I have come up with a few new years resolutions.
  • make a card, send a card, that is what I will strive for. Hopefully 30 of them.
  • I am going to try to post 30 new projects/videos on my blog. 
So now all I need to do is clear the decks and start. Make sure you check up on me and see what I am up to. Leave a comment or two and I hope I can inspire you to be a little creative every day. .
Love it. Live it. Share it.

Sale-A-Bration 2018...Are you Ready?

Just when you think the holiday season can’t get any better, the start of Sale-A-Bration sneaks up on you and makes the season more wonderful.

The new occasions catalogue is out now and for us as demonstrators meant that we could  preorder from those products and start pre-earning our free Sale-A-Bration items!

This year Stampin' Up! have some amazing products available for you. So I have done my preordering and received my FREE products. Now I can't wait to show them all off.

Did you know that if you had joined as a demonstrator, you too could get to see all the products ahead of time and during Sale-A-Bration there is an incentive of 2 FREE stamp sets.

Jump into the new catalogue and brochure to discover all your soon-to-be favorite items! Take a look at the catalogue for yourself and see what exciting things it has to offer.

Love it, Live it, Share it...

At our last On Stage function, we were encouraged to Love it, Live it, Share it. I have no problem doing that as I do all 3 every day. Have a look at the video and you will see why it is so easy to Love it, Live it Share it!

2018 is here...

Well what happened to 2017?

It was a huge year for me and to tell the truth I have enjoyed having the last few weeks resting up with my close friends and family. My granddaughter and I had a creative time pre Christmas making Christmas Bon bons and cutlery holders for our table for Christmas day.

While we created at one end of my craft table my husband and grandson sat at the other end creating a board game for us to play on the day.

You may recognise a few stamps, my grandson was amazed at how many I came up with each time he wanted something for a square. There are even some new ones from the Occasionals Catalogue, see if you can spot them!
