Oh my, these Adorable Owls live up to their name…and may be the first stamps you choose FREE for a $50 order during Sale-a-Bration, starting today!
Demonstrators have the opportunity to pre-order from the January-April mini catalog a month early (AND earn Sale-a-Bration products first, too!), so I’ve been playing with these sweet things in preparation for the launch of this favorite event. If you like being the first to party with new products, you will want to take advantage of the special Starter Kit offer for Sale-a-Bration because how cute is the exclusive BOHO BLUE Mini Cut & Emboss Machine? PLAY this video to peek…
With that mini – but mighty – machine (or the classic white option), you’ll be ready to cut the Framed Florets oval dies to create this Adorable Owl card, and have less fussy cutting in the future!
The contrasting Designer Series Paper really makes this simple fun-fold feel fancy, and there is plenty of room to write a message, slip in a gift card or cash into this greeting card:
Do you say “I’m sorry” too much? Women are the worst at apologizing, even when we haven’t done anything wrong!
I’m working on replacing “Sorry” with “Thank You” and had the opportunity to practice on Sunday when my husband was waiting for to go to church while I finished handouts for my primary class. When I was done (we weren’t late), I said “Thank You for your patience!” instead of ”Sorry to make you wait” and he was more gracious about the wait.
Of course, an apology when I HAVE done something wrong is appropriate, but when I can use THANK YOU instead, it feels more validating for both parties: “Thank you for listening” rather than “I’m sorry I’ve been talking so much”!
My card today is one I can use when someone has sacrificed their time to help me (and I have a friend in mind)…so instead of saying “Sorry I took your time” I can express my appreciation for their assistance!
Speaking of my team…there are just a few days left to take advantage of the Starter Kit+ promotion…just in time to buy your Christmas gifts from yourself as a demonstrator, or jump start a business to earn extra during the holidays 🎁

Whenever a new catalog debuted, my demonstrator friends participate in a card swap. I’ve been a part of many swaps, and I think our group (the Stitched Stampers~ a society of stampers including my Sprinkled Ink team and other demonstrator friends) has the BEST crafters! Even new stampers expand their creativity and abilities by exchanging cards and seeing how to improve.
Each person designs one card and makes multiples of the same card to trade. These were the fabulous creations from our last swap:
(My swap was the 🍑 Peach card I shared in this post)
It’s a nice perk that demonstrators get to order before a catalog goes live, and our stamping friends truly enjoy exchanging ideas! There is always room for you: Would you like to join us?
In September 1992 I was a young mother with two children under 2 and while I loved being a mom and adored my babies, I also craved a creative outlet (aside from fixing endless meals) and adult conversation.
One Sunday at church, my husband took our fussy baby out to the foyer where he ran into a classmate from High School. As they visited, LaVonne told him that she and her sister had started a direct sales company selling rubber stamps. Cody knew of my love for all things paper and my scrapbooking habit, so he introduced us after the service. Once she handed me a Stampin’ Up! catalog from her Suburban, I was hooked.
The experiences I’ve had as a demonstrator in the ensuing 29 years have added so much value to my life! There is a joy to making and mailing cards and crafting something permanent, together with the relationships I’ve forged with some of the kindest and most creative people around the globe that is glorious!
If you love crafting and are looking for more connection, being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is a great way to do both. and now is a fabulous time to join my stamping family: Through May 31st you’ll get a bonus of even MORE FREE products in you customizable Starter Kit!

When a member of my team promotes to a new title, it’s time to make a fuss over their accomplishment, and I needed a special card for my promoting demonstrators. I’ve also been mulling over the #tgifc282 inspiration challenge:
I pulled out my Stitched Stars dies along with the Strong & Beautiful stamp set to create a circle of STARS:
I can’t wait to pair this card with a little gift to celebrate my team promotions and hope it will remind them that they are making a difference by sharing their creativity. I’m always welcoming new team members who want a discount, need a delightful way to make extra income or crave adult connection…and you could even choose a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine ($120) in your starter kit ($99)! What a great discount!
Have you ever looked at a color combination and have a stamp set jump into your mind? It happened to me today when I saw the #TGIF280 Color Palette:
So Much Love is a delicate and feminine cling stamp set, and in my imagination, this card appeared…I think it turned out even more lovely than I had hoped:
I wanted it to be a #simplestamping card with just stamps, ink and paper. It always astounds me that with just 3 ingredients, you can make such beautiful things!
GOOD NEWS: The So Much Love set is actually one of 2 FREE sets that are included in the Get & Go Starter Kit promotion this month (September 2020)! Along with the free stamp sets come 2 packages of ready-to-go card kits that can be used for your first party!
It’s a wonderful opportunity to get the best deal AND start off strong for the holiday season!
Now you have another SIMPLE card idea to create with your new supples:
And it didn’t take long to make the card: Maybe 8 minutes? 4 of those minutes were fussy-cutting out the flower! This is a card ANYONE can make in a moment…and you’ll get one from me in your welcome package when you join my Stampin’ Family in September,.
Stampers worldwide agree that free stamps stamp the best!
