Hip Hop Hooray, for the First Technique Class 9 Came to Play!

Andrea, Pat, Lois, Arlene, Deborah, Carmen, Diane, Kelly, and Amelia all had a great time stamping at my first Technique Class of the year.

This Technique Class was mainly about inspiration. Inspiration is all around us and I found this cute Hedgehog which inspired me to make this card.

I can’t help but browse the card section when I’m in a store and I saw this cute heartbeat card that inspired me to make my own.

I didn’t need much inspiration to make a card using the newest Stampin’ Up! tool the Stamparatus and how could I resist making this adorable Bunny card!

I recorded a video for this card and will post as soon as I’m done editing.

Sometimes we spend a lot of time trying to come up with an idea for a card and we forget to just look around us and get inspired.

I Gave at Ronald McDonald Home Charities, Find Out How You Can Too!


Helping a sick child fight a serious illness or injury places a huge emotional strain on a family. Add worries about finances and a family can become overwhelmed. Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) help families stay near their hospitalized child at little or no cost, allowing them to focus on helping their child heal, not on where they will stay or get their next meal. Learn more about RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE CHARITIES.

Since 2003, Stampin’ Up! has partnered with RMHC to help families stay close to their hospitalized children. Their commitment to RMHC is four-fold:

  • Each year, Stampin’ Up! has contributed $100,000 to RMHC. To date, they have contributed $1.5 million to RMHC and their network of local RMHC Chapters.
  • Each year, they design an exclusive stamp set and donate a portion of the proceeds to RMHC.
  • Stampin’ Up! donates cards and other crafting projects created at Stampin’ Up! events to local Houses.
  • Stampin’ Up! helps organize teams of demonstrators to conduct activities in local Houses. I have been honored (along with other demonstrators) to volunteer my time at one of the local homes here in Central Florida.

These are the happy faces of a few RMHC residents who participated in a class I gave on Monday evening. Their delight in doing something fun is infectious!

This is the current Stampin’ UP! has designed for the 2018-2019 annual catalog.

It’s called Sharing Sweet Thoughts and Stampin’ Up! donates $3 when you buy this stamp set which you can purchase at my online store.

Here’s a Mini Gift Bag project using the Sharing Sweet Thoughts stamp set. Below you can find a list of the products used and a PDF with instructions.

1st Class of the Year, One of Many Firsts!

Today was my very first class of the year. This year will have many firsts,

  • the first week without a corporate job
  • the first week of my full-time Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator career
  • the first time I’ll be scheduling daytime classes
  • the first time I will hold Mommy & Me or Grown Up & Me, classes (I’m still working on the name since I do not want to exclude Dads and Grandparents, suggestions welcome!)
  • the first time I’ll be recording a FaceBook live class
  • the first time I will be recording virtual classes
  • the first time I have more time to create and record videos
  • the first time I will be traveling to Europe!!

I’m so excited for all these firsts! Of course, they will involve a lot of work, but as Confucius says;  “Find a job you love and you’ll never work a day in your life”.

My friend Debra LaFountaine and I held our first monthly Central Florida Stampers class and thank goodness she remembered to take photos right after the setup!
