Sale-A-Bration is well Underway!

Did you know that if you JOIN MY TEAM during Sale-A-Bration you will get extra perks? 

As if the starter kit from Stampin Up wasn't generous enough. For only $99 you will get in your starter kit ANYTHING available in our catalog - yes even the Occasions catalog- worth up to $125. That is already getting a 25% discount on your starter kit!!

Next, Stampin Up sets you up with a free website and 24/7 shopping page for your use. This allows your customers to go online whenever they want without your assistance (those of you who are already customers know what I'm talking about!) and this service is FREE to you for the first 2 months. After that, if you choose to keep this perk (and I highly suggest that you do!) it is only $12.95 per month but it offers so much to you; a free blog site, a calendar of your stamping events, so much more!

You'll also get a free Paper Pumpkin complete kit to check out and see if you like it, also to help you promote these to your customers. They also send you about $50 worth of business supplies including a bunch of current catalogs, order forms, post cards to mail out, host folders, and so much more. Lastly, as part of the Sale-A-Bration promotion, you will get an ADDITIONAL two stamp sets (your choice) in any of our catalogs. While these are your choice there is a price limit of $102 for the two stamp sets, that means you can choose some of the more expensive stamp sets FOR FREE!!! I highly recommend you choose the more expensive sets in this promo!!

For many of you who aren't interested in ever selling Stampin' Up as a business, it is a wonderful alternative as a HOBBY. This means that YOU are going to use the demonstrator discount just for your own use and maybe your friends and family too, it is totally up to you. You still get ALL the perks awarded to any demonstrator in good standing and as a member of MY TEAM, I will NEVER push you to sell more product.

Did you know that I started out as a "hobby demonstrator?"  It's true!! Only after my close friends and family started to show a lot of interest in my new hobby did I decide to make it more of a business venture.

Think about it, getting a 20% discount off EVERYTHING plus all the other perks given to demonstrators. It is amazing and you won't be sorry!!  You will have up to six full months to get your first minimum in ($300) and then after that you will have a minimum sales due of $300 each quarter which is three months. Most of the hobby stampers I know have no trouble doing this type of minimum order. Most exceed it, but you don't have to.

So if you are ready to join my team of Fancy Stampers, please click on this link to the "Join The Fun" section of my demonstrator web page. Or call or text me (951-973-3270) if you have more questions first. I'd be so happy to have you be part of my happy little stamping team.

As a member of my team we have a Team Facebook page, do team events, have team giveaways, and I do team tutorials and mentorship. I truly love my team and I want to help them achieve all the goals they have for themselves, whether it is to gain more customers or just to master a certain stamping technique!!

Come join us at The Fancy Stamper!! You will be so happy you did!

Woohoo! It's finally here, we can now order from the Occasions catalog and get our awesome PERKS!!

Sale-A-Bration (SAB) is finally here.....WHAT is it?

Well, it's the "most wonderful time of the year" (besides Christmas, of course!) Stampin' Up has traditionally put on this special sale event yearly for both its customers and demonstrators.

HOW does it work?

Simple: for every $50 in retail order you make (before shipping) you can choose ONE free special original stamp set or product from the SAB brochure. For every $100 in retail orders you can choose from a separate category of free gifts that are "twice as nice!" but go well with the other free gifts!

When does it happen?

NOW! January 3rd till March 31st are going to be a whirlwind of activity due to the special Occasions catalog (think "SPRING" catalog but with TONS of surprises!!) being released. Your $50 minimum order can be either new items from the Occasions catalog or anything from the Annual catalog or even clearance rack items, it's YOUR choice!

Who can participate?

That is the great thing; its for everyone. Customers, family, friends, demonstrators. Speaking of DEMONSTRATORS....were you considering joining my team of Fancy Stampers? Well, did you know that RIGHT NOW during SAB is the perfect time to join me? The reason is you will get EXTRA goodies when you join from Stampin UP. That's right, besides getting $125 worth of YOUR CHOICE of stuff from any of our current catalogs (for only $99 which includes shipping to you) you will be able to choose any two free stamp sets you wish (worth up to $101!) Isn't that a GREAT deal??

Further, if you want to have your very own workshop and earn host rewards (typically about 10-15% of your order total) for every workshop over $250 you can choose an ADDITIONAL $25 in free product!!!  That is AMAZING!! More free stuff, what else could we ask for?

Just know that if you join my team of Fancy Stampers, you will be joining a fun group of stampers that range from hobby demonstrators to small business owners looking to expand their brand. We are a positive group of people who love to share ideas, our creative designs, and fully support each other in whatever we are pursuing!! You don't have to live in Los Angeles to be part of the fun, only one other team member lives near me. We are connected 24/7 online and manage to do lots of fun team activities such as card swaps, lots of free giveaways, and other fun team building things.

To join my team, just CLICK here and that will take you to my 24/7 shopping page. The link should read "Join The Fun" and walk you through the sign up process. By all means, if you would like help choosing your start up kit, please call or text me first and I can easily help suggest items for you to choose. (951) 973-3270 is my personal cell number and texts are always better as I may be driving or otherwise unable to immediately answer the phone.

New Stuff Happening Daily.....Christmas is Almost Upon Us!!

December 19th already and WHERE did the time go?

We've been having a blast this holiday season looking at holiday lights, having baking parties, attending get togethers, you stuff! Participated in a Secret Sister Santa group that was all sorts of fun and got some really cute goodies to boot!  Nothing like a Secret Sister Santa group to get your creative juices flowing.

So how is it that only six days before Christmas I'm still ordering stuff from Amazon? You guessed it, I got busy with stuff and put too much on my calendar. It happens, we all think we can go to that one party, meet up with those friends, babysit the grandkids one more day/hour/whatever. Then our own stuff doesn't get done. It's called life. Things happen and you move on and do the best with what you have in front of you. Luckily we are all good, just some gifts and no one will notice if those are missing, right??


Because of the new health program we've been on, we haven't done a ton of baking nor did we make any fudge or zucchini bread to give away as gifts this year. Hubby has lost a total of 42 pounds since September 7 of this year, and I've lost a whopping 70 pounds in the same time frame. Needless to say, we are feeling really good about our new healthier lifestyle at this point and don't intend on doing any thing silly to jeopardize it.

I really love how our house decorations came out this year, I'll post a few pictures of them so you guys can see, and also from our cookie decorating day with the grandkids. Lots of fun and so many sugar cookies!

 Kiera, my six year old granddaughter, lost her other top front tooth so now she can sing, "All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth" and mean it!!
Here she is surveying the cookie creations we collaborated on for the afternoon!
 Ok, so I cheated just a little and bought the pre-made dry dough that you add an egg and some butter to then roll out and cut and bake as normal. Saved me a ton of time and that day, time was at a premium!! I'm glad we did it, no one noticed!
 A batch of cookies going home with the grandkids. Their parents can fight off their own cravings for sugar. I don't want to!
 The stockings were hung by the chimney with care.....
And the little lit up Christmas village was decorating the antique sideboard. Such a cute little scene, I think next year I need to buy some fake snow to lay down first. I've seen it done like that and it's so pretty.

Ok, everyone. I have some interesting announcements but ran out of time and room  on this post. I'll post those first thing tomorrow so stay tuned!!!  Until then, enjoy the holidays because they are not here forever!
Merry Christmas!

Wow! Free shipping for the second day this year!!!

I am so excited to announce that Stampin' Up has so very generously given us not ONE, but TWO free shipping days this year. You have to understand, this NEVER happens. In this day of high shipping costs, it is one thing I hear about most often even though Stampin Up is so great about getting their stuff out to us in a timely manner and packaged up so well. Who doesn't want FREE SHIPPING??

Well, today's your day. Just grab that wish list (we all have one!) and start at the top. I like to concentrate on heavier stuff as well like paper! Remember, our End Of Year sale is also going on so it is a wonderful opportunity to take advantage of both and get some retiring product and maybe some paper you've had your eye on for awhile. Your Christmas list is also hanging around somewhere and there are fantastic card kits available or even a Paper Pumpkin subscription (just one month at $20 or up to a whole year!) that would make an awesome gift for friends or family.

 My shopping page is a great place to see all the newest stuff and also the retiring and end of year clearance as well. Just copy and paste this link into your browser or CLICK HERE to go there 24/7. If you order anything from my page please don't forget the current host code which is AKVGHSG3 so you can get some free goodies in your thank you packet from ME.

Remember, our new Occasions catalog is going live on January 3 and if you haven't yet received your new catalog from me please comment below to receive one. If you've ordered from me in the last 6 months to a year I'll automatically send you new catalogs but if its been awhile since your last order, you need to request one. Don't miss out!!

 The photos are selections of what you can be enjoying from our end of year sale as well. Head on over to my secure shopping page to see everything and get shopping today!!

Have a great Monday!

December to Remember!!

This December is chock-full of major perks offered by Stampin' UP! We have a new catalog approaching on January 4, 2018 along with our yearly SAB (Sale-A-Bration) celebration. This is a fantastic time to be a customer or a new demonstrator.

New demonstrators who JOIN MY TEAM this month have the option of getting ALL their goodies (or just part of them) out of the new Occasions catalog. Not only that but you can get a head start on the new items available from our SAB brochure. As a new demonstrator you will earn a 20% commission to start, and it only goes up from there. If you would rather take your commission as a discount, that is fine. That means every time you order supplies you get a huge discount!! The best part is you are using the best products out there, the finest card stock, best stamps, cutest embellishments. Click here to join my team NOW!!

That is Stampin' Up!

If you would like more information on how to join my team, just call or text me and I'll make sure I answer all your questions and we can sign you up over the phone if you like. (951) 973-3270 just be sure to leave a call back number if I don't answer because I may be driving but I will definitely return your call or text!!  My team is VERY important to me and I spend lots of time and energy making sure they are well-informed and get the training they desire to reach the level in Stampin' Up they want to reach!

Here are some cute Christmas cards you can check out. I have videos on my YouTube site that you can follow along and make adorable projects yourself!! Or you can sign up for one of my online classes where I send you ALL the supplies you need to make some gorgeous projects in the comfort of your own home and whenever you have time!
 These are the adorable little stockings that were made from the November Paper Pumpkin kit. If you subscribe to Paper Pumpkin, you will receive a complete project in the mail each month along with simple instructions and will be able to re-create a beautiful project by yourself! There is even a simple YouTube video to go along with it. For $20 per month (includes shipping!) that is a deal!  Order on my shopping page. Just click on Paper Pumpkin!
 Some pretty little gift tags using our new Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. With these blendable markers you can add lowlights, highlights, and shading like a pro! Use this type of tag for any sort of gift or gussy it up for a Christmas tag. There's so much you can do with the markers and this special stamp set, "Climbing Orchids." Buy the "Climbing Orchids" bundle and save an extra 10%.
Last but certainly not least, this is a "sneak peek" at a brand new set coming down the line. From our yet to be released Occasions catalog, this is "Fruit Basket" stamp set and the "Tutti Frutti" designer paper pack. Not only that but there are gorgeous new sequins available with this catalog that are self-adhering!! Talk about a game-changer! Here is just one suggestion of a project you could make with this new suite that will be available starting January 4. Remember, if you choose to join my team and become a demonstrator NOW you can get these great items early as part of your starter kit!!

Click on my Shopping Page to get more information and to see all of our "End of Year" sale items. You can also reserve your extra special new stamping tool, the Stamparatus! This is a new innovative tool that will allow you to place stamps perfectly the first time on your card stock without any mistakes. Stampin' Up is taking reservations so we can have a seamless ordering of this item which will be ready for shipment in March. Your credit card will be used to hold your reservation and will not be charged till the item ships! To reserve your Stamparatus simply go to my shopping page and click on "Reserve NOW" to enter your information. If you do not already have a customer account with me, no worries, you can do it then!!

That's a lot of information for now. I will go back to making little Christmas treats for my granddaughters' first grade class!! Have a wonderful Wednesday and I hope to hear from you all soon!!

Just got home from OnStage!!

Wow, what a week in Salt Lake City!!!  I've been to ONE OnStage local before (last April) but that was nothing like this week. The OnStage "live" version is such an amped up version of OnStage it is crazy.

2300 Stampin' Up demonstrators from all over the US, New Zealand, Canada, UK, Australia, and the South Pacific (as well as France and the Netherlands) were all there. You've NEVER seen this kind of stamping party before!!

We kicked off our crazy week with a "Stampin' Spectacular" that was held by our up line Robyn Cardon in Salt Lake City. She had spent almost a year planning this special event for our team and it was just lovely. She rented a venue and basically threw us a 'mini OnStage' type event. Her event started at noon on Wednesday though I got there early having the responsibility of setting up one of our display boards with new product ideas!That was a LOT of fun.

She even served us dinner, it was a great day and we got tons of free prizes and raffle goodies along with several make and takes. Tons of fun visiting with all the other team members as well as new friends from other teams!

Then, the main even started on Thursday morning. It was pretty overwhelming with all the people there at Salt Palace in Salt Lake City. Such a huge venue and so many people, just amazing and crazy. Then all the excitement of the opening ceremonies and seeing Sara Douglas and her mom Shelli in person. They are celebrating the 30th anniversary of the beginning of Stampin' Up (it started originally in Shelli's living room!) and we are having great things happening all year culminating in our HUGE celebration in Orlando at our OnStage Live in November.

Now THAT's gonna be a party!!

But before that we have another " local event' in April, and the closest one to us is in Vegas so that's probably where we will go.

Drove home a day early (Saturday) and spent most of Sunday just recuperating. Today was a day of laundry and clean up so that Rich can get ready to head back to work. Vacation just about over for him. First the NYC trip, then Halloween, then this convention. We've done a lot and now it's time to buckle back down and get busy with stuff we've been letting go for a bit.

So glad to be home and get back into our regular routines. Will have pictures and other details ready for you soon; lots of super great surprises coming up that I can't wait to share but must wait for now!!

October 2 Already!

It is officially the FALL season and I'm thrilled!!

Hope you all have been doing great, we are fine here. Just super busy and so much going on. Not only is it Fall, but the grandkids have gone back to school with all the flurry of new activities and we are getting ready for a couple of trips; one in October and one in November. Then of course, the HOLIDAYS!

My husband and I have started a new journey to health so we can get to feeling better and shed some of the pounds (hopefully ALL of the extra ones!) that we've put on over the many years of living too well. We started around 3 weeks ago and we both love this program, its simplicity, and its results (so far!) After day 21 on the program I've lost 35 pounds and he has lost 18!! We are both feeling lots better, lots of energy we didn't have before, and sleeping really well. We know our results are probably not typical but we both have a lot of weight to lose so we are happy to finally have something available that is both working for us and extremely simple!! I even became a health coach just mainly to help out my friends and family who saw our progress and wanted to get some better health as well.

In the crafting arena; I just attended my friend's second all day "stamp camp" on Saturday and it was FANTASTIC!! She is such a great host and it is a wonderful opportunity to hang out, stamp and create all day, and eat her yummy food. I basically ate what I brought for myself but I DID sample her creations and she outdid herself, as usual!! There were a total of five of us there and we had such a great time chatting, sharing stories, bonding, and of course, STAMPING all day. I can't wait for the next stamping event at her house!

Today is one of our "errands" days. We will be driving to Temecula for a couple of hours as I have a hair appointment. We also will be stopping by the feed store for chicken food and shavings for their bedding. Got to get them all comfy with the cooler weather coming.

After that it is back home to do some house re-organizing and figure out what to do with all the clothes that no longer fit us!!

Have a great Monday everyone!! :)
