Bubbling over with fun!

For those of you who have been following me for any length of time know that I love bright fun colors! I can just feel my mood lighten when I see anything in fun colors.  As I said on my facebook business page--if I lived alone I would have walls covered with bright and fun flowers, rainbows and happy designs!  I may have to do that in my new studio if it ever gets to a point that I can work on those types of details.  Maybe I will paint the floor too!

Anyway-today's card is one of those bright and fun ones! Just makes me happy to look at and I hope it will make the person who gets it feel good too!


Real Red--Bermuda Bay--Daffodil Delight
Such a fun color combo--do you agree???

I feel like those bubble are the most fun thing in the set.  I want to put them everywhere!   Oh and how about the sequins--love them too!  I will be using this set again really really soon.  And yes, it will be one of the card for my next class--cuz--it is fun!  

Below are the supplies I used to create today's card.  If you see anything you just HAVE to HAVE you can just click on the image and it will take you directly to my store!  Of course you could just browse the store at this link too.  Click HERE to SHOP my WEBSITE

Two for one--no scraps

Just playing around a bit today with the Flourish dies.  Today was the first time I used this die from the set and I loved both the negative and the die cut itself so of course I thought I would try to make two cards--one using each but keeping them both simple and the same colors and supplies.  I think they are both pretty cards.  Do you agree????


I really have to get out my photo taking supplies--I am not able to get good pictures by just setting them on my cutter 😒 I have one of those photo tents in one of these boxes with all the retired sets I have to go through and maybe sell?  I hate going through them though because once I see them again I love them again, lol.  No wonder there are literally hundreds of them!

Maybe you can get a better view of the cards in individual pictures......



This second card uses the retired diagonal scoring plate to make the old olive card stock match the first card.  I didn't realize it was retired  😕


Both cards look much better in person--I promise to look for my photo tent this week.  You can see all of the supplies used below and if you click on any of them it will bring you directly to my webpage where you can purchase any of the products you want/need! Or Click HERE to SHOP my WEBSITE And if you place an order for any of them be sure to use my hostess code for the monthHostess Code:    ANEDBKGKAll orders of any size using the hostess code above will get a special thank you gift directly from me and......Don't forget that order over $50 will also earn FREE items from our Sale-A-Bration Catalog

Mixing it up...sending love.

Good morning my friends! Just wanted to jump in quick and share my card for the day. This one may also be part of the class coming up, so I'm still sticking with the theme of easily mailable and quickly assembled.

I'm loving all the watercolor type backgrounds we've been seeing in the industry lately but wanted to use some of the things that I have on hand so I decided to make a subtle wash with a red watercolor pencil and an aqua pen. Super easy technique and it looks nice too!

I ended up using a mix of products and this card. The little flowers are from the Lots of Lavender set, the sentiment is from the Ribbon of Courage set and the deceptive strip on the card base is from the Floral Phrases set.  The deceptive strip in black is from the Flourish Thinlits die set.  Finally I used a die from the retired Deco Labels Thinlits set.

Today is a good day!

I always love that saying....

Today is a good day for a good day! 

It  just makes me smile--I actually have a sign right by my door that has that on it and I read it every day when I leave my home.

It is also a good day for crafting!  Actually they are all good days for THAT!  So that is what I did--I was aiming for an easy card that can be used for my next all occasion card class--the goal with these cards are that they are not too time consuming but still look nice--and more importantly that they can be mailed regular postage!


Pink lavender--I was so happy when I found some of this last year!  I was not even aware that it existed--and boy oh boy is it pretty.  I am really hoping that it will come back up this year.  Although I am sure I will be looking to buy a few more plants this year too.  Do you do any gardening?  I love to get my hands dirty and be outside.  Can't wait!

Looking for Creative Friends

Friends who are searching for something new--something fun--a way to help your family financially--a chance to spend time with other innovative people who understand YOU and encourage you at all times.

Join my tribe of fun loving creative people who love to share and encourage others to succeed in whatever it is THEY WANT to succeed at. Positive, motivated business minded women empowering each other in every way possible.
Let me answer a few of the most common questions that I always get when people consider joining my team–For me, building a downline (see below) is all about having a TEAM, a TRIBE, a group of people who become Demonstrators because they love the product, love stamping and just want more of it in their lives. Whether someone wants to become a Demonstrator because they want a discount, because they want to earn all the benefits that Stampin' Up! offers or whether they want to offer their own products (yes, see below for that, too!) using Stampin' Up! as their materials provider, there are a zillion ways being a “demo” can be an income producer and a blast!
Let's get started!
The first question I am most often asked is “How much does it cost?'. A Starter Kit, complete with $125.00 of merchandise  of your choice, catalogs, order forms and other business supplies, costs only $99 AND it has FREE shipping!  NOTE: During Sale-A-Bration, now through March 31, you will get to choose two additional stamp sets absolutely free with your kit! (That's an added value of up to $104 depending on what you choose!) You can also get your Starter Kit absolutely FREE with Stampin' Rewards!
If you decide to continue beyond your first full quarter, you will need to purchase a minimum of $300 a quarter – not a month – through your account. These can be orders customers place, order you place for your own stash, gift orders you place, Paper Pumpkin subscriptions – really anything other than business supplies. You can drop at any time with no penalty and if you try it and decide it's not for you, I guarantee we will stay stamping buddies!
The next question I get asked is “Can I really make money at this?”. The answer is YES! Absolutely. How much you make will, of course, depend on how much time you devote to it but you can have a burgeoning business like I do or you can make just enough to support your own purchases, and anything in between. You can earn money on commissions on your sales (the percentage increases as your sales grow), you can earn money on your volume rebates and downline performance, you can earn money by offering classes for fees and you can sell your finished products. Provided you follow the rules (which are fair), you can do whatever you want to earn money using Stampin' Up! products. In addition, through sales and recruiting (see below), you can earn Flex Points which you can use for all sorts of things like crafting products from the catalogs, fun branded items, all sorts of tech, gift cards AND the mac-daddy of them all, an AWESOME trip! Demonstrators have been treated to places like Fiji, the Mediterranean, Thailand, this year we are going on a luxurious cruise to Alaska…..and it's a FABULOUS experience! And those Flex Points are on TOP of your earnings!
Next people always want to know “Do I have to recruit?” Anyone you sign up under your name is considered your downline. Your downline will look to you for guidance and support and in turn, you can earn percentages of their sales every quarter. If you decide you want to have a traditional Stampin' Up! business at some time you will want to look at this part of the compensation program and start offering the opportunity to people. But it is NOT mandatory to recruit so if you decide that you aren't at all interested in that part of the program, it is absolutely OK with skipping it. I have to warn you, though; people LOVE Stampin' Up! so at some point someone is probably going to ask about it!
If I decide to hold events, how will I know what to do?” Well, first, you will have me as your awesome upline!  Our group loves to share ideas and work together as a team to help each other be successful! And Stampin' Up! provides TONS of inspiration and instruction. There's the six-times-a-year magazine Stampin' Success, filled with projects and ideas you can do right then and there. There's Stampin' Connection, a whole site of nothing but questions, answers, advice and ideas from other demos. There's the Demonstrator Only Facebook Group that has a constant stream of support. You will get a weekly email from Stampin' Up! with creative suggestions. And there's the Demonstrator Website where you can find anything and everything you need to know about being a demo. Trust me, you will be deciding what NOT to do instead of looking for WHAT to do.
Believe it or not, once we get this far into the conversation, they next thing people want to know is “Where can I sign up?!?!” It's super easy, you can do it online here and I would LOVE to welcome you to my team if this is something you would like to try.
Have questions that aren't covered in this FAQ about being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator?  Simply ask!  Email me, mj-mail@twc.com and let's get the conversation started.  You will rapidly learn on this call that I am not at all a high pressure person, this decision is 100% yours and I respect your time in calling me.  If it is right for you, great!  If it isn't, that’s ok too!
