Occasions & Sale-A-Bration 2017 Swaps #3

Welcome to my Team Swap Monday Series.  Today's card is made by Shari Taufer.  

She used the Sending Love Designer Series Paper stack for these adorable mini envelopes.  The Sealed with Love bundle has the cute coordinating stamps and framelits.  Happy Hearts embossing folder makes a sweet background on Pool Party to complement the Real Red and Whisper White combo.  I love her tiny Valentine cards!  It is so fun to relish in the designs that my team shares.  I love sharing them with you each Monday, so be ready for next week's swap design!




Sale-A-Bration is the BEST time to get a Starter Kit because you get two FREE stamp sets of your choice!  You can read about the options of being a demonstrator HERE and joining my team HERE.  As you can see my team is really fun, great at collaborating and loves to stamp!

Let me know if you have any questions about the Starter Kit or Sale-A-Bration.  It's always a great time to stamp!  Be sure to shop with me online or in person, I am happy to help you get set with the right selections for your projects.

Occasions & Sale-A-Bration 2017 Swaps #2

Welcome to my Monday Team Swap series.  I am so glad to share these lovely creations with you each week!  

Today's card was designed by Jen Guarino.  She used the "Lift Me Up" bundle to make this card.  You can see the bundle products here.



The background paper is from the "Sending Love" Designer Series Paper stack.  She used the "Happy Heart" embossing folder to create fun texture on the card base.  Isn't Real Red and Whisper White a stunning combo?



Thank you for joining me to see today's design!

Hey Chick

Hey Chick is one of my favorite stamp sets in Sale-A-Bration this year.  I wasn't sure if I really liked it.  Then I started using the watercolor pencils and the personality developed into a lovable, snazzy hen.

This card is featured in my birthday card buffet class this weekend.

She is such a cute, curious girl! You can get this set of stamps free when you purchase $50 of product from the Occasions or Annual catalogs.


The new water color pencils are so smooth and color really pretty.  I am really pleased with the color coordination to all of our products.  



This is a definite must have item for all crafters!  I can't wait to show you all of the other cards I have made with this flock and the watercolor pencils.

Leave me a comment to say hello from your part of the world.  Have a great day!

Occasions & Sale-A-Bration 2017 Swaps #1

Welcome to my Monday series to share card front designs that my team swaps with each new catalog.  Our Occasions and Sale-A-Brations products have several somethings for everyone.  There are so many very fun and delightful ideas and themes to create with that you will surely stay busy. 

This is my card front, using the "Sealed with Love: bundle.  You can see the product bundle here.  I really like the cutout hearts edge.  The next photo showcases them as a card.  



Now it is mounted on a card base so you can see the actual card.  I layered it on a whisper white card base so that the real red heart cut outs and the focal point tag would POP with contrast.  You will also notice the "Sending Love" Designer Series Paper Stack as the background layer.  The "Suite Sentiments" stamps coordinate perfectly on the mini note card which perfectly fit the adorable mini envelopes.


Wouldn't you like to use these to make your Valentine's cards this year?  The coordination options make for easy combinations and there are so many ways to create with the ribbon, stamps, embellishments, paper and framelits.

One extra day to register for the Birthday Card Buffet Class:

You choose which cards you want to make and how many of each card. I cut everything for you and when you come to class you stamp and cut out everything for each card and assemble ONE of each at class.

Inking Idaho on the Road - 2017

Guess what?!?  It is time to start thinking about the BEST stamp event in the Treasure Valley: Inking Idaho on the Road!  March 10-11 is the weekend, so mark you calendar and get ready to register.
Here's the secret: you get the option for early registration (pssst, Friday, January 13th) before it is announced to the public at large.  This event always sells out so my customers are getting their foot in the door early, before it is too late.  Go here to catch up on all the details.  Please, when you register, be sure to put my name down as your demonstrator for the event - I would love to prepare to greet you when you register.  Do not delay, it will sell out!



I hope you will be joining me, please also send me a quick text or email to let me know when you register.  It is exciting to spend time stamping together on fun projects.  There are many beautiful displays - you will be so impressed!

I am very sorry to have been missing in action on the blog this week.  If you have been on my Facebook or Instagram pages you have seen the SNOWPOCALYPSE that overwhelmed our area.  We are safe and sane.  But it has been arduous to keep up with the breakage and 16" accumulation of snow and ice.  Being adults is HARD work!


It was so peaceful and beautiful, until it began nearly flooding us.



We are now moving on beyond, survival of the storm.  I'm going to tidy up my stamp studio and get ready for the upcoming classes and more blogging!

I cut everything for you and when you come to class you stamp and cut out everything for each card and assemble ONE of each at class. The rest is homework, but you have everything you need all ready, you just glue it together. I will have a max of 20 cards you can choose and I charge $35 for the class.  I hope this sounds fun and efficient to get stocked up for 2017!

2017 Sale-A-Bration and Occasions Excitement

NOTICE: January 7th open house is CANCELLED: be safe, stay home and off the streets.  I'm hoping to reschedule - TBD.

What an exciting week this has been.  We have had:
1.  to shut down our internet to find malware in our network
2.  record breaking snow
3. two three snow days off from school
4. a global system failure at Stampin' Up! for over 15 hours on Wednesday.


Meanwhile BIG things started! The Occasions catalog (see here) started with the Sale-A-Bration (see here) catalog!  Sale-A-Bration gives you a selection of exclusive free products.  You can select one free item with each $50 of product ordered from the annual catalog or the Occasions catalog.



Need another excuse to get together with friends? Just host a qualifying order or party with at least $250 in sales during Sale-A-Bration and you’ll earn $25 more in Stampin’ Rewards! You can even apply your Stampin’ Rewards toward a Starter Kit and become a demonstrator yourself!

It’s the best time of year to join Stampin’ Up! During Sale-A-Bration, you can become a demonstrator for just $99 and choose TWO additional stamp sets for your Starter Kit—any stamp set, any price! (Excludes Sale-A-Bration sets and bundles.) Plus, the kit ships for free!  I have an awesome team that is fun and so creative!  You would love to get to know the amazing demonstrators I work and collaborate with - and they have become such sweet friendships.


Both catalogs have lots of wonderful products, ideas, projects and more to explore for stamping and creating with ink and paper.  I have really enjoyed fun with my new stamping products.  I hope you will join me for classes and making beautiful projects at your home.  

Do you need a catalog? What are your favorite new stamps and supplies?  What do you plan to order first?

January's code for ordering online is CBD4BQM7.  Please enter it in the host code box on the Shopping Bag page.  http://bit.ly/shopwithJaney
