Hello Stampers!  I'm so excited for my Card Buffet Class tomorrow!  I have been busy getting all of the kits together this week, and I have over 100 kits for my customers to choose from!  If you are free in the morning, come on out and make some cards!

Card Buffet Class

Hobby Lobby - Arnold

Saturday, April 18th

10:00 a.m.

$2.50 per card or $1.50 per card with a $35 order


I also wanted to share with you the gift baskets that I gave to my customers who earned a spot at my Sale-a-bration Celebration this past week.



Every person received a berry basket that I made using the Berry Basket Die from the Occasions catalog.  I love that basket!  I lined the baskets with designer series paper from the Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper pack.  Everyone also received a SNAIL refill, some samples of our thick baker's twine, a stamp, and a gift card from Panera Bread!  I placed the gift card in a gift card holder that I made using the Gift Card Envelope & Trims Die that has carried over from the Holiday catalog.

Did you notice the name tag that was in the basket?  It says HELLO my name is ___________ and I'm addicted to stamping!  Isn't that fun????

Thanks for stopping by!

SAB Celebration

Hello Stampers!  Tonight was one of my daughter's last choir concerts!  I just love to hear these kids perform and I'm really going to miss that next year!


I also wanted to share with you some pictures from this week's Sale-a-bration Celebration that I hosted!  There were three ways you could earn an invitation:  1 - place at least $150 in orders during Sale-a-bration  2 - Host a private class during Sale-a-bration   3 - Being a part of my team and promoting during Sale-a-bration.  There were 16 people who earned an invitation to this event!

Unfortunately, not everyone was able to attend, but those that did had a great time!



There were lots of snacks, games, and of course stamping!  Would you like to see the cards that they got to make?



Sorry, I forgot to take the date stamp off of my camera! 

All of my qualifiers will also receive a treat basket full of goodies, even if they weren't able to attend!  I'll show a picture of those later!

Thanks for stopping by and checking things out!
