Open House was a huge success


Yesterday I had my open house for the Sale-A-Bration and Occasions catalog.  It was so much fun and a huge success!!!  I had my friend Theresa sign up to be a demonstrator with me as her upline!  I am so excited to have her on my team, the Joyful Butterflies.   

I didn't get any pictures when everyone was here, because I totally forgot and really didn't have the time.  I was so blessed to have a lot of people attend and drool over the new products.   It was wonderful to see all my wonderful friends who are also my customers.  I have the best people in my life.  They have been so supportive of me and my journey with Stampin' Up!

Here are more pictures of my craft studio and displays.  In this picture I am standing at the bottom of the stairs looking to my left.  


This is my corner where I do all of my stamping, computer work and store most of my supplies.  


This is a picture of the items on the same wall as my big shot, paper, inks and punches. 


I am standing behind my desk looking out into the craft area. 


Here are pictures of my displays.

Mr. Wonderful was so kind and helped make the delicious food for today.


I made thank you gifts for everyone who attended my open house.  There was candy and a stamp inside each of the jars.

I can't thank everyone enough that took time out of their day to come and support me in my Stampin' Up! business.  All of you are the best! I am so blessed to have each of you in my life.  All of my love to each and everyone of you.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope everyone has a blessed week!

Happy Anniversary Blog Candy


Happy Anniversary to me!!!  One year ago today I posted my first blog post.  I can't believe it has already been a year.  I have had so much fun making projects, sharing them with you and reading your comments.  I love hearing from all of you!  

To celebrate my anniversary and to say thank you for all your support over the last year I am having a blog candy!  Just comment below for your chance to win this stamp set, rhinestones and Wisteria Wonder ribbon.  For some reason the ribbon is showing up real dark.  The color of Wisteria Wonder is a light purple.  

Make sure you comment before the end of Wednesday, January 11th to be entered in the drawing.  Don't forget to put your email address so I can let you know that you have won.

You will want to put your email address where it shows on the picture below so it isn't seen by everyone.  Don't worry, I will be the only one who sees your email address if you put it on the line below your name.  


Thank you for stopping by today!  I am so appreciative of all of you and your support.  It means more to me than I can ever say.  Thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart.  I love all of you!

Happy Stampin



Happy New Year!



Happy New Year Everyone!!!  I hope you have a fabulous 2017!  I wish everyone great health, love of family and friends and a lot of joy this year.  

Are you a person that makes New Year's Resolutions?  I sometimes do.  I know one thing I want to do this year is take more pictures.  Lately I have been real bad at doing this.   We were talking last night and realized we have hardly any pictures of our family while Emily was home. We have this one from Christmas, but that really is it.  I am definitely going to be changing that!  


Aren't my girls beautiful?  And Mr. Wonderful handsome? I think I might be a little biased.  I am so blessed to have such a wonderful family.  

I am excited for 2017 and can't wait to see what God has in store for me.

Have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping by today.

Happy Stampin!

My good friends Stacy, Theresa, Lisa and I get together every year at Christmas time and have a gift exchange.  One year I  made the photo on the bottom and then the next year I made them the top photo.  I had so much fun creating them.  

The products I used on them have retired, but you could use any paper and stamp sets that you have on hand.  

I am officially on vacation until January 2nd!!  We are going to have a girls day today with getting our nails and toes nice and pretty for Christmas and then lunch.  I love spending time with my daughters, Emily and Erica! 

Thank you for stopping by today!

Happy Stampin!


Stocking Stuffer Ideas


Now that Black Friday and Cyber Monday is over, now it is time to think about stocking stuffers.  Wait, did you forget about stocking stuffers?  No worry, I have you covered!  You are going to love all the items you can get to put in your loved ones stockings or if you need a little gift for someone.  These are perfect. 

I have them broken down to $5, $8 and $10 items.  You can pick your price point and then go shopping!  Check out the following products for you to pick from.  




Thank you Lyssa for creating these wonderful graphics and your willingness to share with everyone.  Aren't these perfect!  

If you would like to place an order click HERE and don't forget to use the hostess code C2MSE7NS

One of the perks of being a demonstrator is getting to see the new catalogs early and being able to order the new products ahead of time.  This gives us time to really learn how to use them and create projects for all of you.   I love this time of year!!  I can't wait until Thursday when I can place my order.  I have been trying to figure out what to order first, there is so much in this catalog that is FABULOUS!!!!

Thank you for stopping by today!  Have a wonderful day!

Happy Stampin!

Small Business Saturday


Small Business Saturday is today!!!!  

Did you know the first Shop Small Business was on Saturday, November 27, 2010.  In 2015 95 million people went out and supported small businesses!!  I think this is so awesome!!!  

Today is a sad day in our home; Emily is flying back to Texas.  :(  We had such a wonderful time while she was here.  I am thankful that she will be able to come home for Christmas this year too. 

Have a wonderful weekend and don't forget about all the local independently owned shops and direct sale businesses this holiday season.  

Happy Stampin!



Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving, stampinscrapper.com

Happy Thanksgiving!!!  This year I am thankful that my family is together this year.   Emily is home from Texas and Erica has moved back home with Mark and I.  I am cherishing every moment we have together.  I am also very thankful for all of my wonderful customers or I should say friends!  I could not do what I do without all of you supporting and encouraging me. I am eternally grateful for this journey I am on with Stampin' Up!  I absolutely love this job, which really isn't a job, because I get to play with crafting toys.  Then I get to share all of them with you.  It doesn't get any better than that!  

I hope all of you have a blessed day and you are able to spend your day with loved ones.  

Lots of Love!
