Barb used the PENGUIN PLACE BUNDLE (page 33, Holiday Catalog) to create the cards below the little picture shown here with the Penguin Builder Punch.  She is a very creative lady and I am so happy to have her on my team of demonstrators ~ we are Southern Stars!  She joined Stampin' Up! to use her creativity and to save money and loves getting all of her crafting products at a 20% discount!  YOU can do this too ~ check out the information on joining on page 18 in your Sale-A-Bration brochure.  YOU select $125 of product for $99 PLUS, during SAB you will receive a FREE BUNDLE of your choice!!!

Radiate! Sparkle! Glow!

This lovely lady is LISA NICHOLS who gave the keynote address at the General Session of BACKSTAGE@HOME last night.  She gave an inspirational speech that I wish all of you could have heard!  She told about her beginnings, about being a young mother in Los Angeles who went to an ATM to get money to buy diapers for her baby son.  The balance on her account was $11.42.  She explained her depression and her journey to overcome personal problems.  She now has her own international company, MOTIVATING THE MASSES, has written at least six books and speaks all over the world.  She is easy to find on google ~ look her up ~ I know that we can all gain from her inspirational message!  Happy Sunday!




240699093_4499950070026571_38851463500649843_nStampin' Up! knows how to spoil their demonstrators!  We are all spending the weekend online participating in our virtual 'convention' ~ ONSTAGE@HOME.  A brightly striped box full of goodies arrived earlier in the week and the WELCOME RECEPTION was Thursday evening.  Yesterday the General Session started at two and continued with Networking Session, Breakout Sessions, General Sessions and (beginning at 9:30 PM) a Stampin' Game Show (I didn't make that one!).  I am loving the Breakout Sessions ~ I have talked to demonstrators from Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Canada and all over the US!  The whole agenda is very well organized and very focused using STAMPIN' UP! VALUES or PEOPLE FIRST; BETTER YOUR BEST; COURAGE AND WE OWN IT!  So excited for today ~ only an hour and a half from now!!!

PS:  Yesterday's key note speaker was Carey Lohrenz ~ the Navy's FIRST female F-14 FIGHTER PILOT ~ fascinating!!!

Stampin' Up!'s ribbons are ravishing just the way they are—but, a little spunk and spritz can add a lot of glamour and glitz!
Fill a Stampin’ Spritzer with a mix of water or rubbing alcohol and any of the Classic Stampin’ Ink Refills for a stunning spray of color. Or, simply slide the  Stampin’ Blends markers atop a thin ribbon for a beautiful change of hue!

FREE Sale-A-Bration stamp set & dies

These cute sheep are having so much fun dancing at a birthday party!  Do you remember creating a 'mirror image' with stamps?  It was a little tricky.  It's much easier now ~ all you need is your wonderful SILICONE  CRAFT SHEET (page 167 in Stampin' Up!'s annual catalog).  I love my silicone sheets and use them all the time.  Create your projects ON the silicone sheet to protect them from wayward adhesive.  In the card above you stamp one of the sheep ON the silicone sheet and lay your cardstock on top to pick up the image (the sheep on the left was stamped on the silicone).  Here is the PROJECT SHEET and if you have questions be sure and EMAIL ME!

Feels Like Home

IMG_6661You can find the FEELS LIKE HOME stamp set in the SALE-a-bration brochure.  There are seven stamps in the set that includes 4 different sentiments.  This is a swap card made by Tamie Ackerson and the sentiment says "I'm always & forever here for you."  

IMG_6662This swap card is by Julie Davison and the sentiment is "Missing You".  The Designer Series Paper, Beautifully Penned, is also included as one of the special products FREE during SAB.

IMG_6658And, this is my favorite use of this stamp set, a card I found on a demonstrator website.  I don't know Angela but I love her card!  In addition this is my favorite sentiment in the stamp set ~ "Your friendship feels like home to me."
