15% OFF Stamp Sets

This discount is for a limited time.
Let me know if you want to take advantage of these savings today!

Clubs are starting. Sign up now!

I am getting ready to start up stamping clubs for this year.

You may be asking, What is a Stamp Club??
A stamp club is a great way to learn techniques, how to use different
products and get together with new and old friends.  Want to make your
own Christmas cards?  Make little gift items?  Sign up for club and learn how.

How it works:
A minimum of 4 people and max of 6 per club.

Each person in the club is committed to participating in each meeting
which is based on the amount of people in the club.  Usually it is
once a month.
     *For example:  if there are 4 people in the club, there will be 4
club meetings and each person is committed to purchasing a minimum of
$37.50 per meeting.
     *If there are 5 people in the club, there will be 5 club meetings
and each person is committed to purchasing a minimum of $30.00 per
     *And if there are 6 people in the club, there will be 6 meetings
and each person is committed to purchasing a minimum of $25.00 per

Each person will have an opportunity to receive hostess benefits during one
of the meetings.
     *That means you get to choose free stuff from the catalog and
benefit from promotions going on at the time of the meeting. (And
Stampin' Up has a lot of promotions!)
I will go over everything at the first meeting so don't worry.

Please let me know by Oct 20th.
I will send out an email by Oct 25th with a doodle poll to set up the
date of the first meeting.
I can't wait to get started.  I have list of ideas started for this
year's projects.  It is going to be a fun year.

I have been a little behind with my blog posts.
Hope you can bear with me, I will be getting caught up.
This Month (March) is the last month of Sale-A-Bration
There are 4 new items to choose from this month. 

Marti was the hostess and she has made a wonderful curry soup.  Yum!
The Bitterroot Stampers wanted to do a card swap

I will post the swaps on this blog after I take pictures of everyone's creation.
Below are the projects that we made at club this month.
This is a small notebook
The colors are crushed curry and blackberry bliss.
The Card Below uses the Chalkboard paper and the chalk ink.

Just perfect to hide some Easter treats

Stampin' Up Leadership

Today was the last day of Leadership.  I will be heading home tomorrow.  This will be the last leadership event that Stampin' Up will have.  They are making changes to the business and the events.
Stampin' Up will have a meeting every 6 mos. and it will be rotated to different countries.
So here is a short update of the trip.
First off, Leadership was held in Orlando Florida.  The weather was fabulous!  Sunny days and temps around 70ish. 
I met so many neat demonstrators this trip.
My shuttle buddy, Nancy below, we rode the trolley to convention from our hotels in the morning.  Nancy is from Maryland and, like me, this was her first Leadership event too.
 I met another demonstrator and we became seat buddies.  Julie and I both came to convention without a group and so whoever got to the auditorium first would save the other a seat. Julie is from Northwest part of Florida.  We had fun chatting and cheering during the presentations. 
I also met a couple demonstrators from Europe.  Michelle Last from the UK and Jenni Pauli from Germany. 
Tonight I went to dinner with a group of demonstrators from Montana, Texas and Alaska.  Some of these ladies I met when I went to the Unite and Excite event in Red Lodge, MT.
Below left to right: Betty, Rea, Diane, Lisa, Alesha, Sheila and Susan in front.

 I will add more about leadership later.  It was a blast and I am inspired to do some new fun things.
 I got lot's of swaps and pics of display boards!

Bitterroot Stampers Club (Season 4) Jan 15th (Judy L. is hostess)

Bitterroot Stampers club just got done.  I had sooo much fun tonight! 
Judy L. was the hostess this evening and she made some delicious green chili with chicken.  It was so good!  I was lucky enough to get the left overs!  But there wasn't a lot left over as it was so tasty.   She also made Mexican wedding cookies too!  Marti was the lucky one to take them home. 
Marti also brought our adult beverage for the night.  We all had "dirty girls"  Made with root beer and Orphan Girl liquor.  Orphan Girl liquor is a bourbon cream liquor that is made in Butte, MT.  They tasted like root beer floats.  Thanks Marti, they were awesome.

Everyone made 6 cards and went home with 7 tonight. 
The Bitterroot Stampers are going to do a card swap for their club night in March.  They wanted to have a couple months to design and make them.
Here is how this card swap will work:
Each person will make 6 cards (all the same).  The challenge will be to use the same card layout.
Here is an example of the layout:

I borrowed this layout pic from the Sunday stampers BlogSpot.
The shape on top of the banners can be any shape that you would like.
You can use any color scheme that you like.

In March, when the BS club meets we will give each person in the club one of our cards.  Since there will be 6 people everyone will go home with 6 different cards (one of each persons design).

The BS club would like to challenge the Sapphire Stampers club to a card swap too.  I don't know if they realize that everyone would have to make 12 cards.  It would be a lot of fun, and everyone would go home with 12 different cards!  Something to think about... Maybe we could do that for Customer appreciation day in May!!

I can't wait for next Tues Jan 20th when the Sapphire Stampers have their club.
