Happy Anniversary to me! Five years ago, on February 16th, I made one of the best decisions in my life. I became part of the Stampin' Up! family and have loved every minute of it. I have made so many new friends, life long friends, from all over the world.
I have worked in other direct sales companies before and I can say, I have never had so much support from other demonstrators. Everyone encourages each other, helps each other and are truly happy when you succeed. When I say Stampin' Up! family, I am telling you the truth, we are all like family. I am so blessed to be a part of it.
To celebrate my anniversary I am giving away 5 beautiful products to one lucky person. To be entered into the drawing, all you have to do is leave a comment at the end of this post. I will randomly pick a winner on Monday. I will announce the winner on my Tuesday blog post.
The 5 products in the bag are: Tutti Frutti Designer Series Paper Pack, Tutti Futti Stampin Spots, 1/8" Real Red Ribbon, Rhinestones and Pearls. I love all the products in the bag and I know you will too!
I am so excited about my classes in February and March! I have two special classes, one each month, planned for you along with my Stamp Camps. In February I will be having a Technique Class and in March I will be having a Perennial Birthday Project Kit Class. Along with those classes I will have Stamp Camps on the fourth Thursday and Friday of each month.
Here are the details for each class:
16th Technique Class at 6:30pm RSVP by February 9th
21st Team Meeting
22nd Stamp Camp at 6:30pm RSVP by February 18th
23rd Stamp Camp at 6:30pm RSVP by February 18th
We will be making 4 projects, one card with a stained glass look, one card using the Embossing Paste and two cards using the new Brusho Crystal Colours. The cost for this class is $35 prepaid, and will include supplies to make the above projects, plus your own Stampin' Paste, Palette Knives, Old Olive and your choice of either Daffodil Delight or Rich Razzleberry (dark) Stampin' Blends, which we will use in class. Please RSVP with payment by February 9th and let me know which Stampin' Blends you would like.
We will be making 6 cards (2 of 3 different designs) including envelopes for $15 or FREE with a qualifying purchase placed at class.

Perennial Birthday Project Kit Class:
In this class we will be using the Perennial Birthday Project Kit from the Occasions catalog. The cards and the box to store them in are so beautiful! I really like how sturdy the box is and that it will hold a lot of cards. To make life easier, there are dividers that you can write on, so you know who you need to send cards to that month. The cost for this class is $37 and that will include the kit along with a box of glue dots. This is a prepaid event, so I will need your RSVP along with payment by March 11th.
We will be making 6 cards (2 of 3 different designs) including envelopes for $15 or FREE with a qualifying purchase placed at class.
For all of my classes, please bring your adhesive, glue dotes, dimensionals and scissors. There will be thank you gifts for every attendee, a door prize and snacks.
For every $50 you spend on products before tax and shipping, you get to pick out a FREE product from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. I don't know about you, but I love to get FREE stuff.
As you are reading this I am in Michigan at a Leadership conference with other outstanding demonstrators. One of the best things I love about Stampin' Up! is that it truly is a family. Some of my best friends I have met through Stampin' Up! I am so excited to be creative, hang out with my friends, participate in swaps, have a pajama party and learn how to become a better leader.
Thank you for stopping in today. I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!
Happy New Year to each and everyone of you! I wish all of you love, peace and good health.
I am so excited about 2018! I can't thank each and everyone of you enough for all of your support for me and my Stampin Scrapper business. I could not have been it without you.
I am looking forward to spending time with you, my friends, making new friends, new ideas, new projects, new products, growing my business, getting healthy, getting closer to God and simply enjoying life.
I cant wait to see what God has in store for me and all of you. It is going to be awesome!
Have a great and blessed New Year's Day! Love to all of you!
Have you reserved your Stamparatus yet? I have to say, as I have been playing with mine, I absolutely love it!!! You can do so many wonderful things with it. You have until December 30th to register to get your own. They will be shipped out based on when you reserve yours. This fabulous product will also be in the new annual catalog that goes live in June.
Some of you have been asking how I already have one when they were not suppose to be shipped until sometime in February. A couple of years ago I was asked to be part of a group called L2L (leader 2 leader). The L2L group is a group of demonstrators who work with people from Stampin' Up! on designing and marketing new products. We have been involved with this product for over 2 years, which as gone by so fast. One of the most important things we had to do to be on this team was to sign a confidentiality clause. I have not been able to talk about the Stamparatus, which was killing me, until I was told it was okay. As a thank you for our work and to help with marketing we were able to order one this month and get it right away. We had to pay for it just like you will when you order yours. This gives us time to play, make projects and videos and send our feedback to the company.
If you would like to reserve one for yourself, click on the link below.
How to Reserve Your Stamparatus Tutorial for Customers (US l CA)
You will receive an email from Stampin' Up! when they are available for shipping. At that time log into your Stampin' Up! account and complete your order and then your credit card will be charged. The cost for it is $49 in the US. If you get yours during Sale-A-Bration (SAB), don't forget you will get a FREE product from the SAB flyer when you spend $50.
If you have any questions, please let me know and I will be happy to answer them for you.
Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you have a having a great week.

I am so excited today!!! Emily is coming home tonight! We have not seen her since July, which is too long! I can't wait to give her a great big hug! When she was going through Hurricane Harvey, she lives in Houston, all I wanted to do was hug her. As a mother I don't think you ever get over your love to hug your kids.
Tomorrow is Erica's birthday. This will be her first birthday away from us, so I know it is going to be hard for her. Thankfully she will be busy with work and my family is around her. I have a little surprise for her, I hope she likes it. Again, I just want to give her a birthday hug. If you haven't figured it out yet, I love to give hugs.
Maybe that is why I love doing daycare so much. I am giving out hugs all day long and they are wonderful!
Thank you for stopping by on the beautiful Friday. I hope you have an awesome day and a wonderful weekend!

Erica got the job!!!!! We are so excited for her! I can't believe my baby is leaving and moving to Michigan. I know she will do great and will be around my family, but this sure isn't easy! I am going to miss her a lot. Mark and I will become empty nesters next week. Yes, I said next week. She is moving next Thursday. Needless to say, our life is going to be a little busy the next few days.
We are not able to take all of her stuff up next week due to both my husbands and my schedule, so we are taking the majority of her things to her in September. This works out great because she will be staying with my mom and sister for a while. We didn't think she would be moving up this fast, but everything happens for a reason.
I have been having fun playing with the new Carols of Christmas stamp set. I worked on my Christmas cards for my classes on August 1st and 4th over the weekend. I can't believe it is time to be working on Christmas projects already.
Do any of you suffer from Migraines? I usually don't, but the last few days have been awful. It started on Wednesday with a slight headache, but on Thursday it became a full migraine. You know the ones that even make your eyes hurt. I usually don't go to bed before midnight, but on that day I was sleeping by 7:45pm. My headache has come and gone all weekend and I still have it today. I think it might be related to the weather. We have had thunder storms come through almost daily and they seem worse after the storm. I just want them to go away!
Stampin' Up! has two great promotions for the month of July! I am so excited about them, that I can't wait to share them with you. Here is all the information about them.
Bonus Days are back! For every $50 you spend from July 1–31 (before shipping and tax), you’ll get a $5 Bonus Days coupon that you can use from August 1–31.
There is no limit to the number of coupons participants can receive per order or throughout the duration of the promotion.
An email address is required to participate; Bonus Days coupon codes can only be delivered via email.
All orders qualify for this promotion excluding Starter Kits.

You will receive a FREE Essentials Gift Pack including Paper Snips, SNAIL Adhesive, Grid Paper, two D Blocks (one for you and one for a stamping friend!), and a Bone Folder. That’s an added value of $52! And to give you a taste of the perks of being a demonstrator, Stampin' Up! will also include the Carols of Christmas Stamp Set from the holiday catalog for FREE ($20 value)! With so many basic items provided for you, you will be able to get your brand, new business off to a fast start—and spend your Starter Kit dollars on things like your favorite stamp sets and accessories!
I have to say that 4 years ago I made the decision to become a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and it has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. The best part, all the friends I have made. I have friends from all over the world. How cool is that?! I have been a demonstrator for other companies and I have to say this is the first company where so many other demonstrators are willing to help each other. I feel very blessed to be a part of this amazing Stampin' Up! family.
I would love to have you as a member of my Joyful Butterflies Team! If you would like to join my team, have questions or just want to talk about the promotions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I hope everyone has a fabulous July and weekend. We are off to Texas to spend the week with Emily and help her move into her new apartment. I can't wait to see it and spend a relaxing week with my family.
