Celebrating 100!

Our neighbor recently celebrated his 100th birthday. Yes 100! He is the longest residing resident in our neighborhood and oldest neighbor too. When the neighborhood first began he was the oldest neighbor then, in 1964, and I was the youngest, being the first birth in the neighborhood. While I would graduate high school, and move on, eventually I did come back, as you, a regular follower, might know. 

His daughters were kind enough to invite a few select neighbors to celebrate the occasion. And of course, I had to make a handmade card for him. I decided a birthday such as this required something extra special. 

I chose to do a shaker card with gold and silver because he deserves all the glitz. I used our large letters framelits, our glitter that is in the current Occasions catalog and I cannot remember where I got the greeting that is stamped underneath the shaker card part. The inside of the card is from the Number of Years stamp set. 

His wife only passed away about 4 years ago. His wit and memory remain sharp as ever. 

It was an honor to celebrate this bright man who spent most of his working life owning a hearing aide company in Hopkins MN.

Why I love Being A Demonstrator

Join my team before March 31st and get two any value (up to $101) stamp sets included in your kit! I think it is safe to say the five ladies that were able to come to our Diva Day in March see why I have been a demonstrator consistently for almost 13 years! I love my Divas. We are more than teammates, we are genuine friends who support one another inside and outside our business. These ladies are the real deal. And expand that to include our Inking of You group! I am only 5 levels from the top of SU!, which is rare. Even more rare is finding that these ladies have been consistently involved since the day the day they joined. It is really rare to find that consistency in any business, especially with a DM Direct Market company.

So, you want to get a discount on products and not build a business? Not a problem with Stampin’ Up! Most of us Demonstrators are in it for the discount.

Can’t stick around forever, or even a year? Drop and come back! We are open to that, no penalty. But I hate to seem team members go...

I love what I do, for so many reasons. I don’t push the recruiting message often, but I recommend you try it. You don’t like it, you can drop anytime.

Thank you for stopping by today!

I Know You're Hungry Card Buffet


Make 12 cards, 2 each of 6 styles, class fee listed below

It will be like a Stamp-A-Stack of cards but you get more choice in which cards you make. Cards will be simple and quick to stamp and assemble.

How this event will work: I will have boxes for each card, around 10 card styles. In each box will be packets with the supplies for each card, you will make two of that card. You will take that box to your spot and work on those cards. When you are done you will bring that box back and choose another box to work on. You can choose up to 6 boxes. In other words, if you want to make 4 of a particular card, you will only get 5 boxes then. Card boxes are first come first serve. I will make sure that there is supplies for everyone to make 2 of each card in a box. Whatever cards are left at the end of the event will be offered as extra at the next event. So if you didn’t get to make it this time, and there are packets leftover, you can make it next time if you attend. And I will continue the previous buffet cards until they are depleted. This first buffet I will make sure to include seasonal cards for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Graduation, and Wedding.

If you sign up for this class, I do expect that is a commitment to attend the class. I am not asking for pre-payment due to having the option to place an order and receive the class for FREE. I am kindly asking that if you commit to come that you do so. Payment for the class will be due at the end, pending amount and if order is placed.

My downline may attend class for $12, a dollar a card. It is a perk of being in my downline! You will be expected to bring your own adhesive and provide your own envelopes.

I am trying something new to save you some money, I will have 4 pricing structures – just cards, cards and envelopes, cards and glue, cards envelopes and adhesive (glue, no tape).

Class Fee Structure:
Basic: 2 cards, no envelopes or adhesive, 2 each of 6 styles of cards                       
$25 or FREE with a $50 order* that night
Basic Plus: 12 cards and envelopes, 2 each of 6 styles of cards and coordinating envelopes
            $27.50 or FREE with a $55 order *that night
Sticky: 12 cards, 2 each of 6 styles of cards, and adhesive (Green Tombo Glue)
            $30 or FREE with a $60 order* that night
Enchilada: 12 cards and envelopes, 2 each of 6 styles of cards, adhesive, and envelopes (name as in the Whole Enchilada)
            $32.50 or FREE with a $65 order* that night

*order is for merchandise total before shipping, handling and tax. If you forget adhesive, you can purchase that night for $5 from me. Please try to remember, I only offer glue, I know some of you prefer tape runners or other types of adhesives.

Registration will be due by April 22nd for any of the dates! Please let me know by email or text or online registration which fee structure and section you desire.


If you are unable to attend any of these sessions but would like to participate, ask me about holding your own card buffet at a location of your choosing with your friends!
