Fun Envelope Card

I have found a new kind of card that I LOVE!!!  It is an envelope card!  It is made from one sheet of 12x12 Botanical Gazette Designer Series Paper, some sticky tape and the embellishments of your choice! I modified the directions that I found on this great blog  When it calls for sewing the envelope, I did not do that.  My sewing skills are sadly minimal!  I used double sided sticky tape instead. I finished it off with Night of Navy ribbon and a label using the Elizabeth stamp. Had to then add some self adhesive pearls! It was really fun to make and really easy too! I also made one using a 6x6 sheet of DSP.  It is the perfect size for a gift card!

Why don't you give an envelope card a chance and send back a link with your creation!

What Kind of Demonstrator Would You Be?

What Kind of Demonstrator Would You Be?
Whether you want to purchase your own stamping supplies at a discount, earn some extra money from your hobby, or build a business, Stampin' Up! provides you with the opportunity to reach your goals.
There are all kinds of demonstrators, and Stampin' Up! needs each of them! What kind of demonstrator would you be?

Discount Demonstrator
You like the idea of buying stamps and supplies for your personal use at a 20% discount and occasionally selling to neighbors, relatives, friends, etc.

Seasonal Demonstrator:
You work hard for a short period of time or season to earn a specific amount of money or to achieve a specific goal, and then you maintain minimum orders and sales during the balance of the year.

Hobby Demonstrator:
You love doing workshops and earning extra money when it is convenient. You work a lot some months and very little other months. You will do workshops if they are easy to book, and maybe have a regular group that meets together once a month. You enjoy the rewards that being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator brings, but you don't plan to make Stampin' Up! a career.

Career Demonstrator:
You view Stampin' Up! as a viable business with long-term career potential. You pursue a management role and you want to continue moving forward with your Stampin' Up! career. You love attending Stampin' Up! events and have close relationships with other demonstrators. You work at your business in a consistent and outgoing manner.

As you can see, this is a fun, flexible business you can build to suit your individual needs and goals. Currently, Stampin' Up! is running a special to become a demonstrator.  Until March 31, you can get 15% off of the Starter Kit + a free bundle of products ($50 value).  This is a great time to join the SU! family.

Breast Cancer Tealights

Unfortunately, I have many family and friends that have been affected by breast cancer.  As I had mentioned before, I am very active in the Pottstown Relay for Life.  These are candles that I created to raise funds for our team.  They are so simple and quick to create, but I think that they make a great little gift.  I will be giving these to two of my friends as a Valentine's gift.  Enjoy!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day to everyone!  What a fun day this will be for lots of people.  I wanted to share the cards that my nine year old daughter designed and created for her classmates and teachers!  She made the tye dye butterflies for the girls and the monsters for the boys.  The only thing that I did to help her was to cut the paper!  She did the rest all by herself!  I was in awe of her determination and spirit while she worked!!!  I hope that her friends appreciate the handmade cards!  Have a fabulous day today !!!

More Valentine's Bling!

These are the projects that my Friday night hostess club made last week.  We started off with the box at the top and then created each of the cards.  I really do love the red glimmer paper.  It just brightens up the cards! I borrowed the box and the snowman card from my December team meeting and my talented RemARKable teammates and leader! Thanks!  I really do love my Friday night group too!  They are all a great group of ladies!  We have a great time together eating, laughing, and creating!  I hope that you enjoy looking at them as much as we enjoyed creating them!

Tin Mini Album

Look what you can do with some retired paper and a tin that I have had in the cabinet for over a year! A cute little mini album.  I am not sure what pictures I will put in it yet though.  I have lots of retired paper and the tins are on sale in the SU! Clearance Shop, so I think I will add this idea to my spring class schedule and make a few for gifts too!
