Celebration Day!

Today is a day to celebrate!

It’s the first day of the new Stampin’ Up! 2020 – 2021 Annual Catalog. This means you can now place your orders.  If you need a catalog, please let me know and I would be happy to get one to you!  You may call me (651-260-6884) or email me (

The new catalog has 10 suites, new stamps, new designer series paper, new accessories, and new tools.

In addition, it’s my granddaughter, Sofia’s birthday which is always a reason to celebrate.  She may only be 6 today but she has the crafting bug and loves to spend time in my craft room and time with me creating.

Happy Stamping!

Introducing Suite Shares!

The New Catalog is coming soon (June 3) and that means new pretty products to play with. With all that has been going on the last two months I wanted to come up with a way to get you new products without overwhelming the budgets. So I have a Suite deal for you! Yes, Suite!

The catalogs are set up with suites of coordinating products which you can purchase with one code, you will always have this option.  However, my Suite Shares are not just paper shares (where you receive just the new Designer Series Papers) but will include a share of the coordinated products in a suite (excluding the stamps and dies).

I am going to offer a different Suite each month and included will pieces of the suite.  For example, 4 x 6 selection of the Designer Series Papers, coordinating cardstock cut for card bases, ribbon/trim, and embellishment samples.

The cost each month will be $30* and includes Priority Mail postage.  *If you want to add the stamp set and dies featured in the Suite, let me know, we can add those on and costs will vary for each suite.

How will it work?

  • I will post the Suite of the Month by the 26th of the month
  • Deadline for payment will be the 6th of the month
  • You may email me or comment on my post to let me know if you want the Suite Share.  I will need your email address so I can email you an invoice to pay via PayPal. No account is required for you to pay the invoice.
  • Open to US residents only

During the month look for posts from me using the selected Suite Share items.

Email me ( or give me a call (651-260-6884) if you have any questions.  I would be happy to help!

Happy Stamping!


A Bouquet of Petals


There is something graceful and beautiful about the petals of a flower. And if you look closely, it is the petals that make each flower unique and gorgeous in their own way. You’ll love the grace, beauty, and unique look that comes with the Pressed Petals Suite!

Did you know that Stampin’ Up! used photographs of real pressed petals to create the suite’s designer series paper? Even the texture of the paper is lightweight to give you the feel of a delicate flower petal.

There are so many unique aspects to the products in this suite; you’ll love every single bit of it! When buying this suite, you get the gorgeous coordination of stamps, ink, and paper, as well as the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder (with text from real love poems), washi tape made with beautiful adhesive petals you could use as accents or to create an entire flower.

A unique aspect of this suite is the Pressed Petals Journal, which is loaded with timeless citations about gratitude and encouragement. Try decorating the journal to your heart’s desire with everything in this gorgeous suite, just as we did in the sample above!  This suite gives you so many beautiful things to work with, your creativity will thank you for it later.

Let’s Continue The Creativity Amid COVID-19

I hope you all are doing well, staying home, and staying safe using social distancing.  Although we are learning new things like social distancing, we also have an opportunity to take time to be creative.  I am here to help you.  My online shop and I are available for you,

I am sorry that in-person contact is not available to us.  Please disregard the the post last Friday, March 27 about Craft Night.  As with other in-person crafting events it has been cancelled.  However, please look for future opportunities on my EVENTS page once our Stay-At-Home order has been removed.

Also, I wanted to share a message I received from Stampin’ Up! about their response to COVID-19.  I love working with a Company that thinks beyond the bottom line and cares for the people involved through their Company.

Together, we are facing unprecedented circumstances with a global pandemic impacting all aspects of how we live and work. Our greatest concern is for the Stampin’ Up! family around the world including our demonstrators, employees, customers, and suppliers. We want you to know that we are here for you. In times of uncertainty, connection is more important than ever. With that in mind, we want to share what we are doing to navigate this situation.

Supporting our demonstrators is at the heart of every decision we make.  We know that being able to manufacture and ship the products you and your customers order is mission critical. To that end, we have worked to ensure we are set up to maintain production and shipping. Our warehouses in all markets are open for business (at the time this email was sent). We are still manufacturing products to support our current and future catalogs.

Beyond the operational side of our business, our sales division has been working with demonstrator leaders around the world to identify the most crucial ways Stampin’ Up! can help demonstrators minimize impact to their businesses. In addition to providing support for running your demonstratorship in a world where most in-person contact is limited, we are also looking for ways to increase our connection and keep our community engaged and supported. You will see the results of this work in the coming weeks.

For our employees, we have implemented a global COVID-19 plan based on guidelines and recommendations from the World Health Organization, the Centers for Disease Control, and local governments. We are doing our part to stop the spread of the coronavirus:

    • Many employees are telecommuting, including many from Demonstrator Support
    • We are practicing social distancing in a few ways:
      • Employees whose jobs cannot be done outside of the office have been relocated to new workstations and are physically separated from others
      • Administrative employees have been assigned building entrances, restrooms, days they can come into the office, etc.
      • Our manufacturing and distribution employees are working alternating days and shifts, which allows them to work at safe distances from each other while fulfilling orders
    • Employees must stay home if they are not feeling well in any way
    • We have increased sanitization practices throughout our facilities and at all our workstations

Our goal is to keep you informed. We will continue to communicate primarily through weekly and current updates—so please check in often. We will also utilize other channels, such as email and Facebook, to connect with you. And, as always, if you have individual questions, please call or email our Demonstrator Support team. You can reach them by phone at 1-800-STAMP UP (1-800-782-6787), or email them at

These past few weeks are a reminder of just how closely we are all connected. Let’s continue to work together, encourage each other, and look for (and help others find) the positive in the world around us.
