Super Sale-a-Bration Marker Club Forming now!

I thought during Sale-a-Bration (SAB) it would be a wonderful opportunity to purchase the markers if you don’t already own them. I love the markers... and I’ll bet if you’ve used them, you do too! But at $125.95, I know that they can be an expensive purchase! So, to help with that during SAB, I’m starting a Super marker’s how it will work! Three people join the club... I will order the markers plus 3 packs of Assorted 12 x 12 card stock (you choose what color family of paper you would like each month). Because the total of the order over $150, each Club member will get to take a turn being host and collect a level 1 host set and $15 in free merchandise plus you will each receive a SAB item of your choice each month. I will split the box of markers and you will receive 16 markers each month. Sounds a little confusing I know. I will break it down for you.

Each month you will receive: 16 markers, a pack of 12x12 assorted cardstock, and a SAB item (could be a free stamp set, pack of paper or a punch it’s your choice)

You will each have a turn to collect host benefits (to be determined by the order you sign up)

At the end of 3 months you will have: 48 markers plus the nice box to store them in, 3 packs of 12x12 assorted cardstock, 3 SAB items, a level one host set, and your choice of $15 in free merchandise.

Sound good? The cost will be $61.50 per month (this includes taxes and shipping for pickup only, contact me if you will need me to ship yours to you). Your payment, choice of paper and SAB item will be due no later than the 15th of each month. Contact me today if you want a spot in the club! The order you sign-up will determine what month you receive the host benefits. The deadline to sign up is January 5, 2010.  Club will start January 15th.

P.S. If you don’t want to be part of the club you can order the markers plus $25 in merchandise and collect all the same benefits and I will ship them directly to you!

P.S.S.  Know 2 others that want to be part of the club in your area?  Your orders could be shipped to you!

New Kit

I'm back!! I want to share the project my Stampers Club did this month instead of cards or a Scrap layout.  It is a Mini Scrapbook Album made with the Stampin' Up! Scallop Square Die and Big Shot.  And I am pretty proud of how it turned out.  I used the Just Beclause Stamp set (available until January 4, 2010)

from the Holiday Mini Catalog for the front and back.  As you can see I have hung mine on my Christmas Tree.  I am going to include some pictures from this Christmas inside.  I have a tin that I did last year with pictures of the girls... I can't believe how much they have grown!  I have a few extra kits if anyone is interested.  I am asking $15 for pickup or $20 with postage for this kit.  You will receive instructions, pictures of each page, plus all the materials, including Scallop Squares, Ribbon, jumbo eyelets, buttons, designer brad, Designer paper and extra cardstock for photo mats all cut and ready to assemble.  You supply the Stamps, ink, adhesive, and Crop-a-Dile or other eyelet setter.

If you have any questions let me know, and if you are enjoying reading my blog leave me a comment.

Have a great night!

Christmas Tags

The project I am sharing today was inspired from the catalog. I wanted to use all the stamps in the level 2 host set, Christmas Punch, so I came up with my own 6 compartment box.
If you would like to add a personal touch to your gifts this year then join us for class at my house on Tuesday, December 8, 2009. 11am-1pm or 5pm-7pm. We will make 30 tags (6 designs, 5 of each) and the box to store them in. I will supply everything you need except basic adhesive. Extra tools that my want to bring: scissors and Paper cutter with scoring blade (mine will be available, you will just have to wait your turn). Please let me know that you are coming by Monday Dec 7, so I will have enough supplies prepared. Bring a friend that hasn't stamped with me before and you both will make a bonus top note Tag! Class fee is $10. Hope to see you!

Giving Thanks

I created this Top Note Mini Album to hold wallet sized pictures of my girls. I plan on painting their little hands and have them stamp on a top note to include in my book. (I'll post a picture of them later, unless it's a disaster :) I have been selling these kits and I only have 2 left. If you are interested let me know. Today the girls and I made Turkey hats out of construction paper. I couldn't get a good picture for all the gobbling LOL!

Stampin' Up! has an awesome Online sale going on right now. Click on the Huge Sale Link on the right side of my Blog to check it out. The Sale ends Monday November 30, 2009, 11:50 PM (MT). You can order online through my website or I can place your order for you.


Welcome to my Blog!! I have been wanting a new way to share my thoughts and ideas about stamping so I thought I would give blogging a try. It will take me a bit to learn the ins and outs, but stick with me. I have big things planned!!
