Manly birthday card

Here's a card I made for my Godson's birthday. I needed a more manly card than my usually pinks and stuff. I used SU's happy birthday wheel, SU kraft paper, Basic Gray patterned paper and the "birthday" stamp is from SU as well. I just can't remember the name of the set right now. I'll add that in later. Enjoy!

Upcoming events with me:

Hi everyone. Here are a few Stampin' Up updates for you.


Don't forget yourself for the holidays. I will be placing numerous orders during the holidays so you will be guaranteed to receive your goodies by Christmas. Just email me or call me and let me know what you would like ordered. (Or if you don't want to know what you are getting for Christmas you can have your significant other email or call me as well). Stamps make great gifts too!! Kids and teacher's love them as much as we do.


November 30th from 1pm-3pm. This is to help us get started in our Christmas card making. You will be making 2 cards (5 of each card). The cards will be easy to reproduce, using minimal supplies so you can get them done quickly. Please sign up by either email or give me a call. Space is limited for this one so sign up quick!! The cost for this is $30.00. Light refreshments and Christmas music will be provided.


I am going to start a ribbon club in December (this is not a club that you need to attend, we would just be placing an order monthly to get our ribbons). I wanted to email everyone and see who all might be interested in getting some of Stampin' Up's beautiful ribbons. You wouldn't be buying the entire roll (some have 10 yards and you might not need that much of each color). This club will enable you to get each color of ribbon in the different families (1/4" grosgrain, 5/8" grosgrain, 5/8" striped grosgrain, 1" double stitched grosgrain and taffeta). Depending on the number of people who are interested in doing this will depend on how much we would have to spend and how much ribbon we would get. If there is enough interest, I would break it into 2 ribbon clubs (I'm thinking 5 per club at the most). We would do this monthly for each group, so it would run for 5 months. Please email me with your interest in this club by then end of November.


This works a lot like the ribbon club. This club is for those of you who are interested in obtaining all of Stampin' Up's markers but don't want to pay the $125.00 up front. It's kind of like a lay-a-way plan. By the end of 4 months, you will have received all of Stampin' Up's markers and the case that they come in. If you are interested in this club just email me or give me a call (I can explain it further if you are not sure how it will work). This will be starting in December as well. I need at least 4 per club for this one.


I had also told some of you that I am starting a hostess appreciation for those of you who will host a workshop with me. For each workshop that you host, I will give you coupons that will be good for the entire year following your workshop. Some examples of the coupons include: December: 10% off any stamp set in the Holiday Mini Catalog w/ any purchase, February: Free ink pad when you earn a Sale-A-Bration set and Birthday Coupon: You may pick out ANYTHING $5 or less to receive FREE!! (one time use only). These are just a few examples of the great savings you can earn when you host a workshop with me. I promise that you will have a great time at your workshop too. All you need to supply would be friends and light refreshments. I'll do the rest!! Just give me a call or an email if you would like to schedule with me. Also, if you hold a $150.00 workshop with me in the month of January you can pick a stamp set in the catalog for free!! ($15 and under).

Spring Summer mini catalog

I'm so excited to see what Stampin' Up has in their new catalog coming out in January. I just placed an order for the Spring/Summer mini's which will hopefully ship at the end of November (that I'm not 100% sure of though).

There are also some really great promotions going on right now. Check them out over on the right of the blog!! There's another one coming up in December as well. I've just added that to the sidebar.

Don't forget the holiday's are coming up so if you guys need anything or are interested in some stamping goodies for Christams, just let your significant others know and they can contact me directly. You will never know it happened!! I'll be placing orders all throughout the month so that the merchandise will be received on time for Christmas!!

I also have a new Hostess Appreciation coupon page that is going to be happening. More details to follow on this one. This is for those of you who host a workshop with me (outside of clubs). There are some pretty great deals with the coupons too!! Be on the lookout for this. This will be starting in December!!

Fruity Chesse Ball recipe

Some of you had asked me for the recipe for the fruity cheese ball that I made for Saturday's workshop. It is so easy and so yummy. Here's the recipe:

2 packages of cream cheese (sofetened)
1 can of fruit coctail (large can) drained
1/4 Cup of orange juice
1 small packet of french vanilla pudding

Mix all ingredients together well and refrigerate. Shape into a ball and serve with wheat thins (I got the cinnamon flavored ones).

Mommy and Me

I had SO MUCH FUN at my Mommy and Me workshop on Saturday. I hope that you all had as good of a time as I did. I know it was really hectic so if you had any questions that didn't get answered or wanted to know about the catalog please don't hesitate to call me or shoot me an email. I will be happy to help you out. I am placing the orders that I got from club hopefully in the next few days (I'm waiting to see if I get any more orders before placing it). I will let you know when I've placed the orders and I will also update you (probably on the blog and email) when they are due into me. Thank you all again for attending. I hope to do another Mommy and Me in the near future.
