New Year, New Adventures, New Dreams!

Lots of you have noticed that I have been a little quiet lately and haven’t posted much on my blog or Facebook for over a month.  Well here’s the reason… I ruptured a blood vessel in one eye which has caused me to have double vision, not fun but it could have been worse. After an MRI, blood work and many other tests, it seems to be a waiting game. My handsome Neuro-Ophthalmologist (that part of my vision is still good!)  let me know that this condition is self-healing and can take anywhere between 4-8 weeks. I’m at the end of week 5 with no progress but I have faith that the next few weeks will be much better!

I’ve been very limited on my computer use since it gives me a headache after just 15-20 minutes. Designing and creating is not much better, it’s hard when I’m seeing 2 of everything or have no depth perception when I patch one eye to avoid the double-vision. I was very fortunate to have help from my son, daughter and Rita for my first class in December.

It’s time to work on my upcoming class next Saturday, my great-niece Riena is here to help and I’ll be counting my son and daughter too. Enough of my woos, I am very blessed with an amazing family, friends and so much more!

There are two new catalogs coming up with lots of new exciting products. There are also plenty of opportunities when you join my team. If you’re not on my mailing list contact me to get your catalogs. I’ll post more of this on another post, it’s getting hard to concentrate right now.

Take a look at the Stampin’ Up! video below that lets you know how I feel about doing what I love and sharing what I do!

I’m looking forward to creating, designing and sharing a lot with all of you!
Feeling Blessed!

Christmas Shadowbox, Oh What Fun!

It was a pleasure having 12 lovely ladies at my house for another Shadowbox Class. This time they made Christmas Shadowboxes my friend Debra and I designed.

We had fun designing this project, we even used one of last year’s thinlits for the Detailed Santa, which was a favorite. All products used will be listed below. Now let’s take a look at my stampers in class and with their finished projects!

Most of them were worried about aligning the letters correctly but my dear friend Michele scattered the alignment and most followed her idea. I love when my stampers get creative!

Let’s Cling!

Looking for rubber stamps that cling like crazy?

I have had a stamp or two that would not stick to a clear block. I had to add multipurpose glue to the stamp label and let it dry so that it would become sticker yet not permanently stuck on the clear block. I even know a few demonstrators who would simply not attach the labels because of this. By not attaching the labels you didn’t have an image on the block for placement.

Now Stampin’ Up!’s new cling stamps attach to clear blocks and make stamping simple and fun. Take a look at this fun video.

Cling stamps available beginning January 2019

Look for them in the new Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs! Get on my mailing list to receive your catalogs as soon as they are available.

Celebrating 30 Years!

This is what thousands and thousands of demonstrators look like at the recent OnStage event in Orlando. We all congregated to celebrate 30 years of Stampin’ Up!

I had a terrific time learning new ideas seeing new products and sharing this adventure with my fellow demonstrators, friends and team members.

Carmen and Marilyn both won the Wonderful Romance stamp set

This year we are able to share what we saw at the event. Wonderful Romance was one of the many stamping demonstrations. Enjoy the following samples stamped with this set.

I just love the Designer Series Paper from this Floral Romance Suite and the Floral Romance Seals. I can’t wait to get my hands on them and start creating!

Patti and JoAnn won one of the best stamp sets. The Well Said stamp set has 51 stamps!

I was exhausted when I got home Saturday night! It was a long 4 days and I can’t wait to share all the stamp sets, papers, punches and dies I will be ordering from the pre-order. This is one of the perks of being a demonstrator, I get to see them before they are available to purchase. You can join my team and have the same advantage as well. Contact me for additional information!

I was one of the 200 Top Performers in the US. I was so thrilled to achieve this! I would be honored to have you as one of my team members.
