Moon Baby Meets Mr Froggy

Thursday, April 27, 2017
I am going to miss this cute little froggy.  He is in one of the Hostess Exclusive Stamp Sets. The moon is from the set called MOON BABY and I am thrilled that it is carried over to the NEW Annual Catalog. The splashes are from the April Paper Pumpkin, but any splashes will work and there are several out there. Check out all the links below. I inked up the moon and hanging star with the Archival Black (omitting the baby image) then stamped the froggy in place.  After I was all done water coloring I just connected the moon to the frog with my Black Stampin' Write Marker using the fine tip side.
STAMPS: Love You Lots, Moon Baby, Good Greetings
Card Stock: Daffodil Delight, Basic Black, Shimmer White
INK: Archival Black, Soft Sky
FUN Stuff: Stampin' Write Marker (black - from the Neutrals pack), Watercolor Pencils in Daffodil Delight and Old Olive), Enamel Shapes, Sponge 
If you want to get your hands on Hostess Exclusive Stamp Sets you can book an in-home party (my home or yours) and once your sales reach $150 you can use your hostess dollars to purchase an exclusive stamp set.  
Another way to get a Hostess Exclusive Stamp Set is by gathering up orders from friends for a 'virtual' party - or perhaps you have enough items that you want for your self.  You can purchase whatever you need at my on line store 24/7, and if your total is $150 or more instead of putting in the Hostess Code you will be your own hostess and can purchase a Hostess Exclusive set with your Hostess Dollars.  Check out all the links below...

Nailed It!

Wednesday, April 26, 2017
Love this stamp set! My hubby is a Jack-of-all-trades (and master of most) so when this set came out in the Occasions Catalog I knew I needed to get it.
 It really pairs up well with the Hexagons Dynamic Embossing Folder.


 The Urban Underground Designer Paper and the embellishments are also in the 'Suite'.

Tasty Treats Meets Mr Raccoon

Tuesday, April 25, 2017
The TASTY TREATS Designer Paper is so refreshingly cool that it makes me want to take a trip to the ice cream shop! But this cute little raccoon has stolen my heart.  He is made with the FOX BUILDER PUNCH and FOXY FRIENDS Stamp Set.
 This card is called a GATE FOLD with a Belly Band.
Your card base (Crumb Cake) is 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" scored at 2 1/8" from each side. What a fun card - it just makes me smile.  Thank you Natalie for your inspiration.  The ice cream treat that the raccoon is holding was cut from TASTY TREATS DESIGNER PAPER.

Layout Switch + Sneak Peek

Monday, April 24, 2017
The FLORAL BOUTIQUE Designer Paper is totally amazing in NIGHT OF NAVY and WHITE. This layout was fun, but after I did the monochromatic one...
 I colored in a second one...
 I can't decide which one I like the best.  How about you? Which one do you like best?
 Here they are side by side
So I wanted to try changing it up a bit, and did the same layout (minus the Whisper White) with one of the images from THIS LITTLE PIGGY.  This time I used the Designer Paper POP OF PINK.  You are going to be so excited to see the NEW Catalog when it goes live on June 1st.  If you do not have a demonstrator I would love to earn your business. Everyone who has placed an order with me in the past 6 months will receive a FREE copy of the new catalog. Place an online order HERE to be assured of getting a FREE CATALOG from me.

Sentimental Sunday

Sunday, April 23, 2017
More cards and treats from friends this week:
 Cute little Easter treat from Brenda
This was a treat that Inez had for all her guests at their 50th wedding anniversary celebration.
 Yummy brownies from Pauline
They are very delicious plain, but also super yummy with a scoop of ice cream and some homemade raspberry sauce.
I have said it before and I will say it again...the best part of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator has been the people that I have met and made friends with.

Sneak Peek: This Little Piggy

Saturday, April 22, 2017
My Pre-pre-order arrived this week!! So excited to hold it all in my hands and to get a close up look.
 The NEW Stamp Set THIS LITTLE PIGGY was given to everyone who attended the ONSTAGE events in April.  The entire room squealed (*pun intended) with delight!!  I thought I would give you a color comparison of our NEW In-Color POWDER PINK.
The piggys were stamped with ARCHIVAL BLACK INK onto SHIMMERY WHITE Card Stock.
The first little Piggy was watercolored using BLUSHING BRIDE, the second little Piggy was watercolored using PINK PIROUETTE and the third little Piggy was watercolored using the NEW In-Color, POWDER PINK. It is a very soft and pretty pink.  I think it is the perfect color.  Sort of the middle color between Blushing Bride and Pink Pirouette.

Tasty Treats

Thursday, April 20, 2017
The stamp set TASTY TREATS is such a fun set and I absolutely love my ice cream!!
You can purchase the stamp set in a bundle with the coordinating framelits BUT - you want to act fast because they are retiring the bundle (10% discount).  You will still be able to get the stamp set and the framelits in the new catalog, but you will miss out on the bundle pricing.
Isn't this next card so much fun?  I remember when computer games first came out and the kids would play Pac-Man.  The little creatures are made from the ice cream framelit in this set.  I love it when you can take something and use it for something totally out of the box.

A Special Team Meeting

Wednesday, April 19, 2017
Our monthly team meeting was extra special this month!
At our January Team meeting we set a goal for the Sale a bration period (January through March) of $10,000.00.  My team is small, but I knew that $10,000.00 was an achievable goal.  I am so proud of these gals because they reached this goal by the end of February!!
We decided that a night out at Olive Garden was in order.  (a nice break from our traditional team meetings)
I wanted to reward the girls according to their achievements.
Everyone who met their quarterly minimum received this fun Easel Treat Box (inspired by Elaine)
 The Drawer holds 3 Ghiradelli Chocolates
I broke up the sales into 6 levels so that the girls were appropriately rewarded so each level got one extra item added to their gift bag.  Congratulations to Sue who was our top seller for the first quarter of 2017!!   
I arrived early to set up the area we reserved...


 We celebrated 4 birthdays in April, 5 new recruits and one promotion!
Our team loves to share: Lynda shared this beautiful card using a lot of copper and the SPECIAL REASON stamp set and STYLISH STEMS DIES
Inez shared this cute card using the new stamp set  POCKETFUL OF SUNSHINE that she won at a Prize Patrol at ONSTAGE.
 She also shared this cute CIRCLE OF SPRING card celebrating Spring
And she shared this darling bumblebee card using the DRAGONFLY DREAMS Stamp Set. She colored the bees wings with GOLD WINK OF STELLA.
Carla brought a card front to show everyone the THIS LITTLE PIGGY stamp set that we all won at ON STAGE.  I cannot wait to play with this cute little Piggy!!
I wanted to focus their Thank you note and table gift using the Sale a bration products.

Another Card Make-Over

Tuesday, April 18, 2017
Several weeks ago I had this first card out for the ladies to stamp at my COME STAMP WITH ME TUESDAY CLASS.
Unfortunately It was not a big seller so I knew I would need to revamp it.  My friend, Donne, popped in towards the end of that day, and we started bouncing ideas off one another.  this is what we came up with... I hope you like it!
The stamp set on card #1 is Me=Grateful and it is on the retiring list
The stamp set on card #2 is Weather Together and is carried over to the NEW Catalog, but if you want to save 10% on the bundle you need to get that NOW because the stamp set and framelits will not be bundled in the NEW catalog.  Check it all out below.
Here are the Stampin' Up! supplies that I used on both of these cards:

Easter Dinner Treats

Monday, April 17, 2017
I trust you all had a wonderful Easter Celebration yesterday!
Today I wanted to share with you the treat that I made for our family to have at each place setting that was inspired by Brenda Quintana

I think that I keep the Hershey Candy Company in business with all the Hershey Nuggets I use for treats!!
I used a retired stamp set called ALL HOLIDAYS for my Easter Wishes.
Here are the Easter Baskets that I made for Tyler and Gracie:
This was Sawyers Easter "Basket": He loved pushing the truck around.
And then, silly daddy thought Lily needed a ride
We also had a little Easter Egg Hunt for Sawyer.  The little eggs were filled with coins because he likes to put coins in his piggy bank and Mommy & Daddy don't want him to have all the candy
Lily didn't have a basket - she is just too little to understand, but Gramma couldn't resist buying her a soft cuddly bunny and a darling outfit for when the weather warms up.
After planning all the gifts for the kids, I never expected to get an Easter treat for Dale and I...
Joey and Melissa came bearing gifts.
 This basket was jam packed with all sorts of treats.  Even a couple gift cards!!
 Sawyer was having so much fun checking out what was inside...
He loved the easter eggs because when he shook them they made noise.  I would say "What's inside?" and then open it up to find Hershey Kisses, so I gave Sawyer fun kisses.  By the time we did this a few times he started giving me the kisses and ginormous hug.  What fun!!
Joey and Melissa also made a super yummy cheesecake for out dessert, and some punch.
Melissa's love language is giving of gifts and it was almost like Christmas at our house because they were handing out gifts to everyone!
Jeff and Jess, With Sawyer and Lily.
Both of our granddaughters were so pretty wearing their yellow dresses
We are so extremely blessed! Thank you, Jesus, for my wonderful family!!
