Here’s to Another 20 Years!

 This month is my 20 year Anniversary with Stampin’ Up! and I am so grateful for the blessings that have come to my life because of it: Amazing, creative and caring friends (both customers and demonstrators), the discovery of my own inner artist, the confidence to speak in front of people, the opportunity to travel, and so much more, but I can see your eyes glazing over, so let’s move on…

To celebrate 20 years with SU!, I have a lot of fun things in store for September!

1. EVERY ORDER (online, customer or workshop order) in September will receive a free gift!
2. EVERYTHING I create and share on my blog will be mailed to someone who leaves a comment!
3. EXTRA STAMPS for hostesses this month only!
4. GIVEAWAYS on my Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/creativejuicebyloni

Go ahead, make my day and join my Stampin’ Up! family…because it’s always more fun to stamp with friends!! And the next 20 years would be delightful if I can share it with you 🙂

Everyone needs a little magic…

During convention my Stampin’ Family always has a little reunion and our awards dinner. While we wish more of our family could be there, it is such a fun night together! This July we ate at Tucano’s in Salt Lake City and I made “Magic Wands” for each of the guests (because everyone needs a little *magic* when they are creating…)
 I used the Razzleberry Splash Simply Scrappin’ Kit (Item #126930) which isn’t just for scrappin’, as you can see! Using the Big Shot (Item #113439) and the Designer Rosette Bigz Die (Item #125594), I made the rosettes. Add a little ribbon and some fairy dust (a.k.a. Iridescent Ice embossing powder) and you can make all your crafting dreams come true, with just a swish of your wand!

Here’s hoping you’ll spread a little magic today by sharing something you’ve created with others!

To Solve the "Bumpy" Mail Quandary

What is a beautiful card without a little embellishment? The problem: It costs more to mail a card with a bow or brad! I’ve been willing to pay the few extra cents to have my cards hand-cancelled at the post office, but if you are looking for an alternate way to add ribbon to a card without the extra postage, let me suggest a flat bow (or “mailing bow” as some call them). Here’s a quick tutorial for you today, using Stampin’ Up!s satin ribbon and some SNAIL adhesive:

5. my favorite Sale-a-Bration Stamp Set! 
One of my favorite thing about the taffeta ribbon (shown here in Rich Razzleberry) is that you can fray the end and pick a strand from the middle of the ribbon, then pull it to gather the ribbon! Isn’t that so feminine and pretty? PURE bliss, as far as I’m concerned 🙂

Did I mention you can get this stamp set FREE??
