You’re in for a Treat!!

3 cards, 1 fancy fold, 1 Christmas Beach & 1 Slim Line

Hey Guys! You’re in for a Treat! I went to NOLA last week and came back basically ready to share with you! Consequently today I am sharing 3 cards, 1 fancy fold, 1 Christmas Beach & 1 Slim Line! Chiefly I LOVE all these so much I can’t stop looking at them! Of course that says a lot since I have been a Demo with Stampin’ Up! for over 19 years, besides I am thrilled when I make something that even I LOVE! I hope you will watch my YouTube video where I particularly show how to make all 3 cards. Indeed I have to thank Lavonne Schwendeman on the Template, you will find it below, regardless I changed up some of the measurements so it is a little different than hers. Likewise, I would like to thank Elaine Harding for the Slim Line card idea. Therefore I love sharing ideas!

Here’s my first card:

Surprises continue this month at SU!

Specifically I am talking about a sale that SU! is doing surprisingly for each week this month.

You're in for a treat all Month long!
Presently you’re in for a treat all month!!

For one thing, each week starting today until the 7th, there are sales! Of course starting the next week on the 8th – 14th and so on. Emphatically I urge you to check back each week, click on my website to see what is happening each week!! Undoubtedly for orders each month equaling $35 or more I will be sending you one of my handmade cards! Likewise you will get a PDF with 16 projects with step by step instructions plus color photos! Consequently I am trying to spoil you! At the same time, you are spoiling me by choosing me! Of course, if there is something you would like to see, just let me know!

Can you see why I said you’re in for a treat!?

Having gone to Backstage in New Orleans, overall I would love it if you could join me next year! Moreover, you will join us (my Stampin’ Up! Team: LET’s Stamp!) while we do monthly cards in our team meeting! As a result of my team meetings those who attend learn great ways to stamp and bond with each other! Also I pick a downline each month to buy a stamp set for where they use the stamps to make a few cards to share. Of course, if you’d rather now share that is ok! By all means go at your own pace, but if you by chance, want to learn how to be a Happy Shopper and get your supplies with a DISCOUNT let me know, above all I will set you up!

Thank you for stopping by, it especially means the WORLD to me!! Undeniably I would love it if you could join one of my LIVES on YouTube on Thursday’s at 4:00 (eastern). For each person who comments during my Live, in particular there’s a drawing to win one of the cards I made that day! Of course, I would love to mail you one! Above all, I hope to see you next week!

Going to the Beach

Tired of the Cold

Hey guys, I’m going to the beach. I’m tired of the cold! Generally I am ALWAYS tired of cold, I am a girl who is not happy when it’s cold. I am sharing with you today two cards, of course, where I will be going to the beach! Of course I adore the ocean, growing up in Southern California I went to the beach all the time. Because I live in North Carolina I don’t get to go as often.

First thing to remember is every week I make cards for you that I also do a video on, indeed you can see the video for these two cards here. Moreover if you missed my other videos but would like to catch up, of course you can, just click here. Download my cards with a PDF and follow along if you desire!

I absolutely LOVE that fence!

I love sunrises and sunsets at the Beach!

Become a Happy Shopper

Why did I join Stampin’ Up! almost 19 years ago? Of course it is because I wanted the Discount! Not to mention that I also wanted to get Color Coordination. Compared to trying to scrapbook and coordinate the colors on my page, SU! made it simple! Undeniably their products match each other, the ribbons, inks, papers embellishments ALL color coordinate. That takes away all the guess work for me! After all once you pick the color that best goes with your photo, the rest is easy! Join my team and you too can be a Happy Shopper! Coupled with getting a discount, my team get’s together every month and we stamp and swap cards! I also teach you how to do watermarks and make pdf’s along with other teaching tools.

Get a PDF with a Qualifying order!

Every month I work with 16 other Demonstrators where we each make a project, write down the instructions and include pictures. How can you get this PDF you ask? Of course it is super simple….with a Qualifying order ($35 or more) you will receive in your email a PDF with directions on how to make each one! As can be seen below there is a sneak peek!

This month it's all double scrapbook pages!
Love scrapbooking!

Stampin’ Besties Club!

Undeniably my favorite part of being a SU! demo is being able to do classes with my Besties! Carol, Hetty and I get together virtually moreover we plan 6 cards using the same stamps/suites! It’s amazing how the three of us identically use the same product and be totally different! Rarely do we get to come together in person, so we have so much fun in our Besties Club! Not only do you get 3 Designers, but you get so much more! Check out this page to find out more then let me know you want to be a Bestie too!


Notwithstanding, I am finishing my post today, I would also like you to know that I appreciate you! After all, The fact that you are reading this has made my day! I work hard to make my posts interesting and particularly hope you find them so. Also, below my sign off are the pictures that you can click on of the product used in today’s cards. Click on any of them, after that you will be taken to my Online Store! My hope is that you love the cards today and will of course want to try them out yourselves! Until next Thursday!

Who doesn’t love the beach!?

Hey Guys!,

Who Doesn’t love the beach!? Today I am sharing with you a couple of cards featuring the Stamp set Friends Are Like Seashells from Stampin’ Up! As soon as I saw this set in the catalog, I knew I had to get it! I absolutely love the beach, sand, sea shells and listening to the waves! Sitting in a chair with an umbrella with a book is my favorite thing! Of course, if there were a man bringing me drinks I would be in heaven! LOL

Now I will share with you the card I started my YouTube Live video with:

Who Doesn’t love the beach!?

Inspiration for this card comes from Jan Clothier in NZ! I changed it up a little, but her design was so good I decided to keep most of it! Thanks Jan!
