Happy Anniversary to Me!


On July 31, 2006, I signed up to become a Stampin' Up! demonstrator! I never intended to teach classes, have Open Houses, or retreats, or clubs.. I just signed up for the discount!  But I had seen a project that I really liked, and I wanted to share it with a few friends... so I did, and by the end of August I had sold $1200 worth of product, and put $240 in our joint checking account.  I was so surprised and delighted that I had been able to do that, and I was loving all the benefits of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator!  In April I called Stampin' Up!  and asked what I would need to do to earn the cruise to Bermuda... and I did!  I set a record with the company for earning it earlier than anyone before me.  What a great time we had when Mark and I cruised to Bermuda!  

So, on July 31, it will be my eleven year anniversary!  It's time to celebrate!

Would you like to win this blog candy?  Here's what you can win...a Christmas stamp set, "Pines and Poinsettias"; "Suite Sentiments" stamp set; "Serene Scenery" 6"x 6" Designer Series Paper Stack; Silver Satin Ribbon Spool; and Two Tone Natural and Old Olive Ribbon. 



Just leave a comment below, sharing how we met! 

On July 31, I'll draw a winner!  

So.. leave a comment!  Can't wait to hear from you!

Colorful Seasons Class

I'm loving the new annual catalog! There are so many new things to play with there, and I'm thinking that the new "Colorful Seasons" stamp set is my favorite!  I love that all four seasons are included in the stamp set! And I love that the "Seasonal Layers Thinlet Dies" match up with the stamp set, but also have a few thinlets that are special, and aren't included in the stamp set! 

Don't miss this opportunity to come and play with this amazing bundle!

Bonus Days

July Bonus Days are back!


What are Bonus Days?  For every $50 USD you spend July 1-31 (before shipping and tax), you'll get a $5 USD Bonus Days coupon that you can use August 1-31.

Last year was the first year Stampin' Up! tried this kind of promotion and it was wildly successful here we are again for some Summer fun (in addition to your fun at the beach).  It's a great way for you to build a nest egg in July for you to spend in August.  Visit my online store here to get started.
