Just Two More Weeks to SALE-A-BRATE!!!!

Don't let the biggest Stampin' Up! event of the year slip by without taking advantage of FREE Sale-A-Bration items.  Stock up on your stamping and scrapping basics (glue sticks, designer paper, cardstock, tape runners, ribbon)- just $50 in product and you can choose from terrific stamps sets, ribbon, buttons, paper and digital images.  We only do this once a year.  I love the items I have already received for FREE and there are a couple more I must have before the order deadline of March 31, 2011.  Remember, you can order 24/7 on my Stampin;' Up! website.

Here's a sweet card I made from SAB stamps and items from the Occasions Mini.  I call it "Quilted Bliss" and it reminds me of the quilts my mother and grandmother (and great-grandmother) made when I was a child.  My mom, age 85, still makes beautiful handmade quilts.  I have played at it, but found that I just need to stick to stamping.....

This is a near CASE (Copy and Share Everywhere) of fellow stamper Maria Sanchez.  I think it is one of the prettiest cards I've ever made, even if I say so myself.

Busy week ahead- out of town for a day or so, then to Franklin to see sweet, precious Isabella.  I pray that you will have a wonderful and peaceful week.

Scripture Stampers: I have no greater joy….3 John 4




Shelli Gardner, Co-Founder and CEO of Stampin’ Up! challenged all demonstrators to add one Stampin’ Up! activity during 2011 during Leadership in January.  The campaign is called +ONE and encourages each of us to share what we love with those we love.

I have wanted to start a Stamp Club ever since I became a demonstrator, so I decided to move forward and invite some of my treasured friends to join me in creating Scripture Stampers, a monthly group of six meeting the last week of the month.  Each member will rotate hostess duties for the 6 month period and receive hostess benefits during that month.

Every meeting we will make a Scripture Card that showcases a Bible verse chosen by that month’s hostess.  The first meeting was a couple of weeks ago and we made a cute little box to hold the cards (courtesy of Sharon Johnson- No Time To Stamp).  Hostess Judy Bell chose one of my favorites:

I have no greater joy than to hear

that my children are walking in the truth. 

                                            3 John 4

My husband and I are so blessed to have two wonderful sons who are devoted to Christ.  They honor us each day with their love of God and their family.  So this verse is very special to me, as well as the other members of our group.

Each month our scripture card will include elements, colors and accessories from the Springtime Vintage Suite in the Occasions Mini.  I love everything about it- paper, fabric, ribbon, embellishments, etc.  Most of the items in the Mini will not be available after May 31, 2011, so it may be a good idea to stock up now.  I know I am.

Until next time….I hope that you have a wonderful day.
