Countdown to Christmas - 1 month!

It's hard to believe that Christmas is just one month away.  I have been posting Christmas cards all year long on the 25th of each month.  AND I have taken my own advice and made several cards each month.  I have a nice collection of cards completed and I hope to find time over the long Thanksgiving weekend to address them and get them in the mail.

Below are the last set of Christmas cards for 2015.  These are SWAP cards from the Stampin' Up! OnStage event I attended last week in Baltimore.  Hope you have been inspired to make and send your Christmas cards this year!

CONTACT ME if you would like help creating these or any other cards.

Your First Sneak Peek!

These are the gifts I received at the Centre Stage event I attended last Friday night.  It was a special dinner and training event for about 80 demonstrators who achieved a certain level with Stampin' Up!

 This is a cute calendar/notebook. 

And this is an awesome bag filled with lots of Stampin' Up! embellishments.

Here is the swag I received at Friday's main event - OnStage.  A cute tote bag, water bottle, pens, and another calendar/notbook. Hmmm - I see another contest in the near future to give that away!

Below is what you have been waiting for!  The covers of the Occassions and Sale-A-Brations catalogs. 

I already placed my pre-order of select items from the Occasions catalog!
Below are the products that I received at the On Stage event.

Come to stamp class this weekend to see these products and the INSIDE of the catalogs!
But we can't forget about the Holiday catalog.

Oh, what fun!

I just got back from the first ever On Stage Stampin' Up! event!  Oh, my goodness!  We had such fun!  It started for me with a special dinner and training for leaders on Friday night.  Then Saturday was a full day of training with a sneak peek at the Spring/Summer Occasions catalog. IT IS AWESOME!!!! 

We had a chance to try out several stamp sets and new products.  I can't wait to show you some of the new stamp sets and tell you about the new products!  Check back early Tuesday morning if you want to see the goodies I received.  We are not allowed to show anything until then - which is why I am hiding the ADORABLE stamp set that I won from the Prize Patrol!

Attending these Stampin' Up! events are always fun because I get to reconnect with old friends and make lots of new one - including Jim in the photo above.  Good thing he was wearing an apron with lots of pockets.  He took a photo of all of us using everyone's phone plus two cameras.

CONTACT ME if you would like information about joining my team!

CLICK HERE to visit my Stampin' Up! website.  Shop 24/7 and see my calendar of events.  Classes are this weekend - so RSVP for your preferred time!

Veteran's Day 2015

Below is a card that I posted this summer - but I think it is also appropriate for today.  It is made using the Work of Art stamp set by Stampin' Up!  Substitute "Thank You" for "Celebrate" and you have a perfect card to give to any veteran.

Thanks for stopping by today!

30 Day Scripture Writing Plan

At my Stamper's Appreciation Breakfast in May, my stamp club members covered blank drawing pads to make Creative Journals.  I included some ideas to help them with their creativity.  BUT at my stamp club meetings last month, I discovered that most of the ladies have not been using their journals!

So I am sharing an idea that is another great use for using the journals - Writing the Scriptures.  Take about 10 minutes each day in November to copy the text out of the Bible and listen for God to speak to you.

You can click  HERE to see Shannon Long's original blog post and to download a copy of the writing plan.

Stampers - if you give this a try, bring your journals (with scripture writing) to our November meeting and receive an extra star on your chart!

Please CONTACT ME if you would like information about my stamp classes.  We make at least two cards and one 3D item at each class.  No long term obligations - and you can earn free Stampin' Up! merchandise.  Plus, it's a lot of fun!

Club dates are Friday November 20 - Sunday November 22.  As always, RSVP early to get your preferred spot.  I will add a Monday class if needed.

Thanks for stopping by!
