Your Chance to Craft

Carving out time to be creative is the only way it’s going to happen in this busy world: If something is important to you, you’ll make time for it. Here are a few upcoming events you will want to put on the calendar so you can tell everyone else you are already booked!

Celebrations Card Class

Saturday, February 9th at 1 pm

Spanish Fork, UT

Create 8 greeting cards (2 each of 4 different designs) for everyday celebrations. Bring your scissors and adhesive (SNAIL adhesive and refills available for purchase at class) and all other products will be provided for you. Includes envelopes.

Cost: $16  Reserve your spot by February 5th via Paypal or Venmo to Loni-Spendlove

Also coming in February, Spring StampFest  in St. George, Utah on February 23rd! We only do this event twice a year, and it’s most enjoyable when you plan to come and spend the day crafting with a friend. Save $10 by registering before February 9th!

We offer the same event just a few weeks later in Spanish Fork…and hope you’ll be able to come to one or the other. It’s such a lovely day to escape and play with us!

Finally, Valentines Day is a perfect excuse to stamp a lovely card, and this one is a perfect chance to use the GORGEOUS Forever Lovely stamp set and All My Love Designer Series Paper…and it’s simple enough to complete quickly! Don’t forget to mail your parents or kids a Valentine, too:

Holiday Wreath Class

It’s important for me to recognize Thanksgiving BEFORE Christmas, so I’m owning that season in my home decor currently, but as there are not a lot of Thanksgiving songs, I do have the Christmas tunes playing on repeat.

Soon I’ll put up a tree and switch out my fall wreath, and I thought it would be fun to make a Holiday Hoop Wreath for my front door, so let’s make them together:

There is sparkle and shimmer, grazing deer and fir trees! You can choose “Happy Holidays” or “Merry Christmas” as your greeting, too:

You could certainly order all the supplies to create this yourself, or you can come to the class and make it for just $15!

Birthdays, Blooms and a Class for You!

Whenever I get a moment to create just for fun, it’s a special day. Today I wanted to play, but had work to do first. Once work was done, I rewarded myself with stamping time following the #tgifc155 sketch:

As I’m getting geared up for the Perennial Birthday Box & Cards Class next week in Utah County (have you registered?) I wanted to showcase the versatility of this simply lovely stamp set, Perennial Birthday:

145760g

I also wanted to use a few retiring Stampin’ Up! colors, so pulled out my Wisteria Wonder, Wild Wasabi and Peekaboo Peach (with a little Soft Saffron that isn’t retiring) and did an emboss resist card for the challenge:

Watermarked(2018-04-13-1400)

The Wisteria card is also embossed with the quilt top embossing folder…if you missed it at Christmas time, you’ll be happy to know you can order it again when the 2018-2019 catalog sales period starts on June 1st.

RSVP for the Perennial Birthday Box & Cards class by Monday, April 16th so I can get your supplies in time for the class. Meanwhile, create something pretty with rubber stamps, ink and paper and share it to make the world a lovelier place!

Preserve Precious Memories: Simply, Beautifully

Create a mini album in a snap: We did the work and saved the fun for you! We measured, cut, and gathered the paper and accents so you don't have to, but the pages aren't predesigned—you put it together however you want. Keep it for yourself or give it to someone else to enjoy: It's perfect for a mother, friend, grad or to collect memories of a special event! It's a simple, quick way to capture life's precious moments.


It’s more fun to craft with a friend and you can personalize this project with your bestie in Southern Utah on April 12th or in Spanish Fork on April 16th. Just check out my Events page and register early!  

Sale-A-Bration is all about great deals and rewards. You can get wonderful rewards by shopping, hosting, and joining Stampin’ Up! before March 31st!

Virtual Stamp TOGETHER!

Have you ever wished you could stamp with a bunch of like-minded girlfriends from the comfort of your own home? Your wish is granted–and your opportunity is March 26!

This is a live, streaming event where we will show you some fun projects. Simply choose your preferred device–computer, tablet, smart phone, or even hook up your computer to your TV*–and tune in to learn some fun new things to do with the bundle!

WHEN: March 26, 2014, at 5:30 PM, 7:30 PM, and 11:00 PM (all times Mountain Time). We’ll demonstrate the same projects each time, so choose the one that’s best for you.

WHERE: You don’t even have to leave home. Come to http://www.youtube.com/stampinupvideo at your chosen time, and be prepared to stamp! We’ll also award door prizes to random participants.

WHY: So many occasions are coming–Easter, Mother’s Day, graduations, and more–and we want to help you be ready.

Hope you can make it. We’d love to have you join us!

** All Wrapped Up Bundle **

We will be stamping with the All Wrapped Up Bundle on page 6 of the Sale-A-Bration brochure. Order the bundle in time to have it at the event. Our projects will also feature the Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper, so you may want to order that as the free Sale-A-Bration product.

Life Happened (& Card Class)

Sometimes life comes at you all at once! That happened to me last week: A death, a birth, a visit from my daughter, a trip to southern Utah, a card class, a shoebox swap, a stamp day, a funeral, an emergency family council and a red-eye flight to send my girl back to D.C. on the same night as Daylight Savings, followed by early morning church!

I should have snapped a pic at the funeral, but didn’t think of that 😦

All in all, it was a great adventure and one I won’t soon forget!

I’ve learned to stop saying, “When life slows down, I will _______” because life isn’t about to slow down anytime soon! Instead, I make time for the things that are important to me, including creativity. If you need a creative escape this weekend, come on over to my Stamp-a-Stack card class!
