Simply Spring

Yes, it is Spring and I would like to show you what a friend of mine, Joan, showed me how to do.  Look at this beautiful spring flower, using the double sided DSP.  It was very simple and I could see me making a whole garden full of these because I do not have a green thumb.  I used a pencil to make the flower sotht the colored eraser looked like the center of the flower. I am going to try and do my first video of how to make this spring flower this weekend.  So come back soon to check it out.

Thank you for visiting.  Let me know what you think of this post with your comments below.

Read more about my favorite reasons to join Stampin' Up!

Why should you join Stampin' Up!?
Here are some of my favorite reasons why you should join Stampin' Up!
First and foremost is the discounted Starter Kit opportunity during Sale a Bration.  It's just $125 and you can choose between the Standard Starter kit or the Digital starter kit .
  • Fill your Wish List!  Save 30% on your first product order of $150 or more (placed within 45 days), plus earn hostess rewards & receive a minimum of three Sale-A-Bration gifts (1 for every $50 in product purchased during Sale a Bration). Yes, the demonstrators get the same perks as the hostesses, plus more!
  • Try it out!  Enjoy Stampin' Up! and the Demonstrator discounts plus benefits for a full calendar quarter (depending on when you sign up, this could be up to 5-1/2 months!) with NO further need to sell or purchase any products beyond the starter kit.  No pressure - just a whole lot of stamping and FUN!
  • There's no penalty if you drop!  If you wish to renew your demonstrator status for the following quarter (for example April - June) you would be required to have $300 in product sales (including your own orders).
  • Starter Kit ships FREE!  Yes, I said FREE shipping - another savings!
If those haven't convinced you, here are a few more!
  1. Value - if you are just getting into stamping, this is the smart way to go! We always say that if you want it all, join Stampin' Up!  And even if you have some of SU's product, or addicted like me, and you would like lots more why not get it at a 20% discount?  It's silly not to!
  2. Fun - what could be better than to be a part of SU and the friendships you could make with all the other friendly stampers!
  3. Opportunity – you could make some money at what you love to do.  A little bit or a lot of it; it's up to you. What could be better than earning money while having fun?!  It's the best job you’ll ever have.
  4. Convention, Regionals & other events - you can join me at our fabulous Convention this summer. July 18th – 22nd we will meet in Salt Lake City, Utah for the best fun you’ll ever have. Honestly, it's an event you will remember always. SU really knows how to do it up right.
  5. Flexibility - you can make your own schedule.  You can join just for the discount or make it a business. You can do it Your Way!
  6. Support - Besides support from me you also get tons from Stampin' Up!  They love their demonstrators and it shows through the demonstrator support materials. Workshop ideas and audio and video trainings on all kinds of topics that are available at your fingertips on the demonstrator website. Plus, you'll have access to Stampin' Connection - a wonderful website just for Demonstrators full of samples and forums we share in.  And of course you'll receive our monthly magazine just for demonstrators, Stampin Success, which is full of informative tips and beautiful samples.
  7. Pre-orders - what is more fun than getting new stuff!?  Not much - we usually get new product a month before it is available to everyone else.   It gives you time to play and be ready to demo it.

Hippity Hoppity


Easter is almost upon us and I had a request to make a card from a basket idea someone gave me and this is what I came up with.  I demonstrated it at my Girls After Work group.  They LOVED it and I hope that you do too. 

I used the Delightful Dozen Stamp set on the inside.

Here is another card that we also did for Easter.

Look closely at the shimmer on the whisper white.

Thanks for looking,

Good morning Ladies!

I'm sorry I haven't posted in a while.  My daughter, her husband and two children are living with us, while they look for a house or apartment for rent/buy.  Been a little busy enjoying the grandchildren.

Wanted to share this awesome new product with you.  I realized at my workshop that I hadn't told EVERYONE about it!

Thanks for stopping by!  Email me at if you have any questions!

Happy Monday!
