June 26 - Special $99 Mini-Starter Kit

I can tell you from experience, being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator is one of the BEST ways to meet new friends, love your job, and work your own hours. I've never regretted joining the Stampin' Up! team since I purchased my starter kit 3 years ago.

Until the end of June you have the chance to join my Funky Stampers team for only $99! You can learn more about the June mini-kit and more about my team here -

Please contact me with any questions you may have - I would be happy to give you all the information I can! Just remember - this coming Wednesday is the last day you can take advantage of the $99 mini-kit so be sure to contact me by then if you are interested!

June 24 - Always Card

Just wanted to share one of my favorite cards we did at Card Day last weekend. It uses one of my absolutely favorite sets, Always. All of the products used to make this card will NOT be retiring this month so it will all still be available July 1 once the new catalog comes out.


  • Always stamp set
  • Rose Red card stock and classic ink
  • Pretty in Pink card stock
  • Whisper White cardstock
  • Certainly Celery classic ink
  • Old Olive classic ink
  • Chocolate Chip classic ink
  • Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder
  • Certainly Celery 1/4" grosgrain ribbon
  • Stampin' dimensionals
When making it just assemble and stamp the whole bottom part of the card, then run it through the Sizzix with the Polka Dots embossing folder. Then add the top heart with the dimensionals in top (will not be embossed).

Enjoy your day and stamp away! :)

June 8 - Card Day Information!

Just in case you missed the memo last month - Card Night is now CARD DAY! The event has moved from Thursday evenings to Saturdays and will offer more that one card day event that day.

In June CARD DAY will be on Saturday, June 19th at the following times:

11:00am - 1pm
1pm - 3pm
3pm - 5pm

I will have 8 openings for each time slot so when RSVP'ing please let me know which time slot you would like to sign up for. All 3 event times will make the same cards and everything else about the card event will be the same as before.

Many of the cards made during May's Card Day will be using all new products from the NEW Summer Mini Catalog! If you haven't gotten one in the mail I will have extras here during the event. You will also be able to sneak a peek at the NEW 2010/2011 General Catalog and Idea Book and see samples with some of the new items in it!!!!

To sign up for Card Day on June 19th please send me an email at or leave a comment here to RSVP.

What: Make 6 pre-designed and pre-cut cards, each card includes a matching envelope. Snacks and drinks are provided during the event.

Where: My house, directions are provided when you sign up.
How Much: $8 OR a $25 Stampin' Up! order (yes! you can now come without placing an order, you'll just have to pay for the supplies to make your cards - or if you place an order over $25 you DO NOT have to pay a supply fee)

Extra Bonus: I combine all orders and use the hostess benefits earned that night to get goodies that I split up with everyone who placed an order. So with your order you will receive a FREE goodie bag with a variety of Stampin' Up! embellishments, stamps, paper, etc. - the goodies are different every month. And if you did not place an order the night of the event you can pay an additional $4 if you would like to receive the same goodie bag that the people that placed an order will be getting.

To Sign Up: Leave a comment here or email me at to reserve your spot (don't forget to tell me what time you'd like to come). Hope to see you there - contact me if you have any questions at all!

June 7 - Serene Page

It has been SUCH a long time since my last blog post! This first year of teaching/working at school has been amazing and I'm both sad and extremely happy to have a summer vacation that started TODAY! The good news is that I have 3 entire months to create new goodies to post and as of this weekend I'm already ahead of the game!

I got the new Stampin' Up! catalog late last week and HOLY CANOLY I am in love with so many things! My poor wish list will need an entire notebook. I have some NEW items from it that I was able to pre-order and I have been having fun with them all weekend! Can't wait to show you some of the things I've created when the new catty goes into effect on July 1.

As for today's post I created this page with quite a few Stampin' Up! goodies. The Trio Flower punch is my absolute FAVORITE (it makes the little flowers) and it is retiring this month, so I'm a little sad, but they do have new small punches that are a good replacement. But if you love the trio flowers as much as I do be sure to get your order in before the end of June! You can see all of the retiring products on my online store here. Have a fantastic Monday and see you back here tomorrow for another project!
