Day of Service


Join Stampin’ Up! in Supporting Five.12:

You’re  invited to join us in supporting Five.12. Five.12 provides bags of food to students in need through a program called “Weekend Backpacks.” We are currently planning to pack more than 2,500 backpacks, but we think we can do even more. If you’d like to make an impact with the Stampin’ Up! community, you can donate a backpack by going to  and clicking the “Donate” button at the top of the page. For every $5 USD donated, Stampin’ Up! employees will pack another backpack for a student in need. Donations will be accepted towards this project through 6 September 2022.


Stampin' Up! is promoting a year long campaign ~ #ShareYourMoment ~ to share what's best about crafting ~ friends crafting together.  This video includes 3 generations ~ Shelli, Sara and Sydney (Sara's daughter)................



Shoe Box Swap

Last Saturday several of my team members got together for a shoe box swap in the Cat/Art Studio.  Shoe box swap?  Yes, each of us created a card and then added all the supplies used into our 'shoe box' so each of us could make the same card.  I think you'll enjoy the cards below and my fellow stampers ~ nice job ladies!!!


Karen Benton ~ she used blending brushes & masking on the card above.


Marie Shaughnessy used the HELLO LADYBUG BUNDLE to create her card.


Cindy Black used the GARDEN GREENHOUSE BUNDLE for her card. She used vellum to create the glass in her greenhouse.

Join us in Making A Difference for Ukraine! I’m excited to get together with some friends here at Stampin’ Up! for a live cardmaking fundraiser on Facebook. All donations will go to Lifting Hands International to support those affected by the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine. We’ll be sharing 6 different cards and a special sneak peek of a new DSP from the 2022 Annual Catalog.  From Sara Douglas, Stampin' Up! CEO

Last Saturday in Park City

Snowshoeing Adventure in Park City with guides from All Seasons Adventures.  I always wanted to go snowshoeing and it really was an adventure!  We walked about 2 miles into the forest ~ up & down hills ~ and 2 miles back out.  It was not snowing but it was a beautiful snowy day, 12 degrees, 7,000 feet up.  

The forest was quiet except for the noisy little snowshoes!
Snowshoes have changed a little. I expected 'tennis racket ' snowshoes!
I dressed in layers and felt nice and cozy in my winter gear.
I made it! So proud!
Natalie White, my snowshoeing companion, and Stampin' Up! staff. A lovely lady!!!

Mystery at the Misty Moonlight

This email arrived on Friday and I am still smiling (actually, laughing).  I had to share...

You are cordially invited to the Mystery at the Misty Moonlight!

Anyone who's anyone from the Westside Brights and Eastside Regals criminal

downlines will be there ~ so watch your back at all times.

The 'Backstory' starts "It's the height of prohibition in 1920s Riverton and stamping has been outlawed.  With creativity made illegal, crafters are forced to slip into the dark corners of society.  Although tension runs high between the stampers, they rely on one another to follow one simple, unwritten rule ~ don't see, don't tell.  They find artistic relief in secret underground stamp clubs that have been popping up around the city, a place where stampers abandon inhibition at the door.  They're free to stamp while jazz music lulls them into a sense of temporary tranquility.

It goes on from there ~ a very clever description of an event that I am looking forward to next month.  My niece, Katherine is Ms. Merlot (Former Top Demonstrator, Beginner Pilot/Eastside Regals) and I am Ms. Spruce (Stamp Boss/Eastside Regals)!!!

So excited!

A box from Stampin' Up! arrived today.  I am so excited!  This is the first-ever Million Sales Retreat!  Alan was invited to attend also but he decided that he did not want to travel so I invited my niece, Katherine.  She and I will fly to Utah on Wednesday, March 9, and fly back on Sunday, March 13.
