Great Rub-On Card and More!

Friend_rubon_card "...dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria!"  That is part of one of my favorite lines from the classic movie Ghostbusters.  And, right now it's true!  Several people have emailed me recently to find out how things are going here in Colorado and I have to say that I absolutely love it here!  Aside from the dryness and needing to drink a ton more water, the weather is warm and sunny and the view is spectacular! 

I'm staying with my sister for the time being until I find a place here and that's where the above quote comes in.  My cats and her dog, so far everyone is afraid of each other, it's kind of funny actually.  Cats are naturally curious so they're checking out the dog who growls at them but we think he's a little afraid of them too.  I'm really hoping to get some cute pictures of them together at some point so I can scrap their introduction to each other.  So far though everyone is behaving well and just avoiding each other. 

To keep this somewhat stamping related, check out this great card that my friend Kim gave me at my going away party.  Isn't awesome!?!  I think I carried it around most of the night and showed it to everyone at the party!  It's super easy, and is just made using the Sale-A-Bration rub-ons, Flower Fusion and colored brads on a cardstock base.  Super easy and classy!  Thanks Kim for the awesome card!!

Why You Should Become a Demonstrator!

Img_4690Before I left on my roadtrip to move to Colorado, I had a little going away party out with some friends sharing a fun night since it will be awhile until I see them again.  What amazed me about that night was not only the number of people who showed up but all but one of my girlfriends there were into stamping!  Some are friends who come to my classes, others were downline members who have become friends and still others are demonstrators from other groups!  Even one of the guys there admitted to stamping!  This is not my going away party but several of the girls in my group at a Boot Camp party that we earned!


For me the best thing about being a demonstrator has been the positive influence that it's had on my life - many new friends, the opportunity to share what I love and a chance to give back to the community.

Colorado or Bust!

Colorado_or_bustWell, it was a very long drive but we made it to Colorado!  If you subscribe to my newsletter then you know that I moved very recently to the Denver area!  I'm now out in Colorado, a place that I've always wanted to live so now it's a dream come true to actually be here! 

I love stamping and have brought my stamping business with me out west and am offering $10 in product to anyone who refers a purchasing customer to me out in Colorado to help me get up and running out here.  If you know someone who is into scrapbooking and/or stamping in the Denver metro area then refer them to me and when they make a purchase, hostess a workshop or become a demonstrator then you benefit! 

And, no matter where in the US you live, you can still be a part of my AWESOME Way Out West Stampers group!  We have such fun stamping, swaping and sharing that no matter where you live there are great ways to get involved!  And, with the Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Starter Kit at such an awesome deal right now at just $159 plus tax for up to $316 in product, now is a great time for me to help you get your business or hobby started!  Just email me for more information!

Many Marvelous Marker Club Forming

Marker_cake_2Isn't this a great card?  The chocolate frosting on the cake is made with a Chocolate Chip Marker and crystal effects!  It's a very fun and easy technique and makes a cake that looks good enough to eat!

I love the Stampin' Up! markers and it's time for another Many Marvelous Marker club!!  Markers are one of the staples at my stamp table.  Each marker has a brush tip for coloring (both to color in areas and to color on the stamps) and a fine tip for journaling or addressing envelopes and of course they come in Stampin' Up's exclusive 48 colors!  Plus, there's hardly a Stampin' Project out there where you couldn't substitute a marker instead of an inkpad! 

You can purchase the markers individually for $3.25, a whole color family for $31.95 or the complete set of 48 for $125.95.  By buying them as a complete set you're only paying $2.62 per marker for a total savings of over $30!  Now, I know that a $125.95 price tag before shipping and tax is a bit steep to pay all at once so I offer Marker clubs to help you get the value of the full marker set but pay for them over a four month time frame.

In this club each month you get a full color family of markers and a matching pack of 8 1/2" x 11" Assorted card stock and during the last month you get:

  • The color caddy that holds all 48 markers

  • A Level 1 hostess set of your choice

  • A set of neutral markers

  • And, if you join the marker club by March 10th you'll also get a Sale-A-Bration stamp set of your choice!! 

With shipping and tax this adds up to over $200 plus the value of the two free stamp sets but when you join the club you can join for just $46.95 per month!  To join this great club and buy the marker set at a great value just email me to get started or with any questions!!  Sorry but this club cannot be combined with any other special.
