Simply Sunday: Sneak Peek Butterflies!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

My apologies for the “patchy” posts … Today I’m giving you a sneak peek into the Occasions catalog that we saw at our Stampin’ Up! OnStage event in Orlando!!

I’m hoping to be back to my normal posting as I am on my way to Marshfield (3-1/2 hr drive) to get my camera back!! Won’t let that out of my site again … lol, I’ve got to much to share with you yet.

Let’s start with the “Beautiful Abounds” stamp set and coordinating dies …

For those of you who cannot resist butterflies, you will fall in love with the delicate dies and the beautiful coordinating stamp set … so elegant.

Here is a sweet and simple card that they showed us during her demonstration …

Those cute little wooden butterfly elements will be found in the upcoming Sale-a-bration Catalog … oh yes, you can get these for FREE!

I am so impressed with all the wonderful items in the Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogs … I can’t wait to send them to you!!  Make sure you are on my mailing list. If you’ve purchased from me in the past, you are on my list.

If you are in need of a demonstrator, I’d be honored to help you and send you both the Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogs.

Let’s take a look at a cute project next …

I am just in love with the new Gingham Designer Paper … don’t you think it’s so cute!! That is in the Occasions Catalog.  And the coordinating ribbon … in the Sale-a-bration Catalog.

I encourage you to be one of the first to host a Stampin’ Party during Sale-a-bration … I’m working on filling my calendar now, so message me below or email me at: lindaluvs2stamp@aol.com

Now … I also want to share the OnStage highlight video that starts with Shelli (Co-founder) 15 years ago talking about her vision of Stampin’ Up! When you have a goal … dreams come true!

I had a wonderful time at ONSTAGE this November. It’s so exciting to see the upcoming catalogs, to celebrate our stampin’ sisters (and brothers) for their achievements, and best of all … see all my stampin’ friends from all over the country!

We’re having our Spring OnStage this coming April … Will you join me?

Thank you so much for spending part of your Sunday with me, it is greatly appreciated.

Have a wonderful day ~

Let’s Talk Sale-A-Bration

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Whew … we made it to the end of the week! I hope yours was good week and you have something planned this weekend, even if it’s to relax!

I’ve had a few people as me “What exactly IS Sale-a-bration”? Well, I could say that it’s Stampin’ Up!s most anticipated event of the year, but that still would not explain it very good, so let’s try this …

How fun is FREE stuff? Our Sale-a-bration Catalogs are filled with wonderful products that YOU and your friends (anyone) can get for FREE with qualifying purchases.  With each $50 purchase (before shipping & handling) you can choose a free item, the more you purchase, you more you can get for free!!

Here is one of the awesome stamp sets …. great for boys, or girls! Anyone who likes to ROCK!!  Check out all the amazing coloring options you can try with the Epic Celebrations stamp set!

The Epic Celebrations stamp set can be selected as your FREE GIFT with a qualifying order before March 31… that is when our Sale-a-bration ends 😦

Stop back tomorrow, I’ll be sharing “My Epic Creation” with you… lol  This really is a fun stamp set to work with.

But … that’s not all! There is more, let me just put this out there for you ~ If your ready for a change, want to try something new … need a little extra cash, I would like to invite you check out our starter kit … for $99 — You get to choose $125 worth of goodies (anything you want) PLUS 2 additional stamp sets of your choice.

I celebrate 18 years with Stampin’ Up! this coming Saturday and I’m in it for many reasons, here are a few …

#1 for sure are the friendships I’ve built, it’s a wonderful sisterhood and an amazing support system.

#2 is the confidence and self-esteem I’ve gained since I’ve started.

#3 is the recognition for a job well done … don’t we all like to hear when we’ve done a good job! As with anything, the more you put into it, the more you get out … Stampin’ Up! has sent me on 7 incentive trips – From Alaska to Hawaii, and Fiji to the Panama Canal. I would have never gotten to go on these fabulous vacations if not for you and Stampin’ Up!. 

#4 Which brings me to flexibility – you can work this business “around your life” and …

#5 the extra income is pretty nice too (I have to admit it)!!

I would feel terrible if I did not share this wonderful opportunity with you. Run it as a business or run away with the discount on all your goodies! It’s yours to do as you choose.

If you have questions, just shoot me an e-mail or message me. I’d be happy to answer any you may have. Let’s talk… that’s it!

I hope this post answers any questions you may have about Sale-a-bration, it’s a great time to build up your stamp collection for FREE!

Thank you for joining me today, and don’t forget, I’ll be back tomorrow with a fun card from the Epic Celebrations stamp set.

Have an awesome day ~

 

 

 

Watercolor Lifting technique

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

No … not me, Stampin’ Up! will celebrate their 30th Anniversary this year! Me? I’ll be celebrating 18 years … can you believe it!

This is the time of year when we reflect on our lives and as I reflect on mine, I look at the time I’ve spent with family and friends and found these are my most treasured memories … and the little stampin’ thing that I started 18 years ago have truly complimented both!!

I would like to you join me for some fun, a trip back in time … let’s travel through time with Stampin’ Up! from the beginning to present day! You’ll experience our demonstrator conventions and hear our theme songs …

My journey as a demonstrator began in 2000 with the “Share your Passion” Convention … I was only a demonstrator for a few months, and knew I was in for an amazing ride!  I enjoy attending these events with my downline and Eileen, and we always meet new people, see old friends, and make new ones!! This brings back such fond memories ❤ It’s truly a party!!

If you have ever considered joining our Stampin’ Up! family … I would tell you “Just do It” … this is going to be such an exciting year to be part of this amazing group of women and men… worldwide! I wouldn’t be doing this for 18 years if I didn’t enjoy it … Let me answer your questions & concerns.

Now, Let me leave you with our 2017 OnStage celebration this past November …

We have another event coming in April 2018 right here in Milwaukee! You must be a demonstrator soon … registration begins January 16th  …. Did I mention OnStage falls on my birthday – April 7th!! Time to party!!
