Dryer Sheet Technique - Christmas

This Christmas card was made using the dryer sheet technique. Tami White has a great tutorial on her blog on how to make this card using this technique.  I was trying to capture the glitter but the camera did it no justice if you see this card in person it would definitely WOW you. I used the Lovely as a Tree stamp set. I love that it has all that glitter. Happy Stamping!



So I was hanging out with my friend and downline Catalina "Cathy" Stafford and we started to create. This card is what I came up with. I used one the Jolee's embellishments to off set the card, but everything else is Stampin' Up!. I think it makes a good friendship card. Happy Stamping!

Birthday Balloons


So I was digging thru some of the retired stamp sets I have and look what I found. I decided to take a blast to the past and make this birthday card. This retired stamp set is called Birthday Balloons (2001)… This will definitely make good Mickey Mouse cards LOL! Happy Stamping!

Star burst Technique

Made this card using the starburst (or sunburst) technique. Dawn Olchefske has an awesome tutorial on how to make this card using this technique. So far her instructions have been the simplest I've seen. These are pretty easy to make.  Happy Stamping!

The Best of Snow

Made these 3x3 cards using the Best of Snow stamp set by Stampin' Up!. These make really good cards for Christmas gifts. I love how they turned out and I think this is probably my favorite stamp set from the Best of collection. 

Happy Stamping!!

Sara Douglas and Me

This is Sara Douglas, she is Shelli Gardner' daughter, she is the sweetest person ever, very approachable and of course I had to ask her for a picture, so happy she said yes and what company do you know where you can actually interact with these wonderful people. I think that she is doing an awesome job being so involved in Stampin' up! and she has some cool projects too. Here we were helping make bags of donated Stampin' Up! products that will go to some of the teachers in FL who can use these products with their students and in their classrooms. Once again Stampin' Up! making a difference, I am happy to be part of this company. 

Ramping up Your Social Media Presence - Andrea Withers at Leadership 2013

Ramping Up your Social Media Presence - this class was presented by Andrea Withers who had, Diane Dimich, Catherine Pooler and Becky Roberts. This class touched on startegies for using social media and mobile technologies to find new customers, draw attention to your Stampin' Up! business and staying in touch with current customers. I learned a lot in this class, especially things that pertained to Facebook. And what was good about the class was that it was real people with real experiences, things that they have tried out and it has been good for them. So glad I attended Leadership.

Meet New People, Find New Faces - Shannon West at Leadership 2013

Meet New People, Find New Faces with Shannon West at Leadership 2013

This class was very informative. Shannon gave us 10 proven ways to generate leads. She also touched on how to build your customer base and increase profitability. I liked the fact that Stampin' Up! recognizes that finding new customers can be a challenge but with these 10 tips, it should be easier. And I must say Shannon taught this class very well. I am so motivated to apply these tools to my business because my resolution is to make it this year.

Creating a Blueprint for Success - Brandi Barnard at Leadership 2013

Creating a Blueprint for Success with Brandi Barnard at Leadership 2013

This class was one of my favorites, Brandi & Meg Daves showed us how to make our business profitable and successful. Until I took this class I didnt know that I was spending more money than I was making when it came to my classes and groups. They provided us with a spreadsheet where you can calculate how much you are profiting, that was especially helpful. This class was very beneficial.
