Holland Happenings Booth

I had a fabulous time this past weekend at Holland Happening Street Fair. The mornings were a bit cold but eventually the sun came out and warmed us up (I even got sunburned, a miracle in Washington). There was good entertainment, carnival food, and people watching. I met lots of people who were so excited to see a Stampin' Up! booth at the fair. I handed out nifty bookmarks with all of my information to over a hundred potential stampers too.

Here are some pictures of our booth...

Upcoming class information and catalogs...

Our Prize Table!! We gave away a card kit and basket both full of goodies. We had our customer information sheets available for people to fill out to enter our drawing.

Our product display...yes, that is my Circle Scissors still in the package. Unbelievable I know!! It will be out of the box this weekend for sure!

Here are some of our product samples...

Here are the card display boards we made. We had cards that Becca and I have made. We also took some of our favorite swaps received at Regionals and put them on the boards to share. We had a few ladies come through with cameras (diehard stampers to be sure) so they could take home some new ideas.

It was a wonderful weekend! I can't wait for all the other events we were invited to have a booth at over the summer. I am so excited to have my downline join me at these events!!


Manhatten Rose Class

If you wanted to take this class last Thursday and couldn't, don't worry!! I had to cancel the class due to the three county-wide power outage. It is kind of hard to stamp when you don't have any power!!

So I have rescheduled this class for May 7th at 6:00PM. If you want to make this class but are unable to attend, please let me know and we can set up a new time. The fee for the class is $25 ($20 for Stamp Club members) and we will be making the adorable gift box and eight cards (two cards of each design). You will also receive the instructions so you can make this project again later. So call me today to reserve your kit and place at my stamping table!

If you don't live here you can purchase a card kit, e-mail me to learn how!!!


Holland Happenings!!

This weekend, Saturday and Sunday, I will be at the Holland Happening Festival in downtown Oak Harbor, WA. I will have a booth at the street fair with my upline, Becca. So stop by and see what incredible deals we have going on this weekend. We will have cards, memory cans, and so much more for sale. You can also enter a drawing for Stampin' Up! Goodies (who doesn't love that!). You can sign up for classes and stamp club. We also have a fabulous deal if you have ever thought about becoming a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator so be sure to ask about that.

Also if you stop in and say "hi!" and mention my blog you will get a special little gift!

See You at Holland Happening!!!


Make N' Takes Part 3!

Here is the last Make N' Take from Regionals I have to share with you. (I actually have one more MnT but I haven't started it yet!) This is an adorable Love Note Holder using the scallop notes. Way too cute!


Make N' Takes Part 2!

Here are two more cards I made at Regionals. Both cards use the Mini Occasions "Soft Summer" stamp set. I must admit that this stamp set caught my attention but "Fifth Avenue Florals" won out. But after using this set it is back on my "must have" list. =)

Regional Make n' Takes!

Today I am going to share with you some of the incredible Make n' Takes we made at Regionals. We had so much fun! I love the projects that Stampin' Up! comes up with for their events (plus it is one of the rare times that I don't have to prep anything, I can just stamp!). I am not going to post the recipes but if you want to know about a certain project or product leave a comment and I will answer your questions.

This project got me hooked onto our chipboard letters. They were so much fun to work with and they look fabulous on this scrapbook page. Now I just have to find the perfect picture!

This is a little treat pouch. The flower is embossed, using the Big Shot, and I sanded the embossed parts of the flower to turn them white. So sweet!

Look for some more pictures tomorrow and the next day!!


Seattle Regionals

(Jane, Becca, Barb, Debby, Lynette & Michelle)

Saturday, myself and five other ladies went to the Stampin' Up! Regionals in Seattle. We had a fabulous time!! We laughed, stamped, learned some incredible techniques, joked around, stamped, learned more, ate and laughed some more. We all left with so many new ideas and concepts that I am sure it will take the rest of April go figure out how we are going to implement all these great new techniques into our businesses (be watching Stamp Club, awesome new techniques are coming your way!!).

If you are a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and have never been to a SU! event, I highly recommend it. You will leave feeling very blessed. SU! makes a point of taking care of their demos and the training we receive from the company is incredible. Also, if you have ever thought about joining SU! talk to me! You can receive $50 off of your starter kit if you sign up with me by May 1st!! I am looking for people to join the Blissful Stampers team and would love to have you join us!!

So here are some pictures of us hanging out at Regionals:
Rebecca--My awesome upline & fellow stamping addict!!

Lynette--My mom & newest member of the Blissful Stampers Team!

Here is the presentation stage:

Here is the mass entrance of over 500 SU! demos and their guests trying to find the perfect seats. (We ran and got a table right up front)!!

Here we are all getting settled at our table. We couldn't wait to mount our new stamp set and get started!

Here's Barb and Debby going through their packets so they could see the fabulous projects we would be making that day (pictures of those projects tomorrow).

Here is my mom filling out her Demonstrator paperwork!

Becca and her guest Jane!!

Here is Shellie Gardner, the CEO and co-founder of Stampin' Up!, talking with us and presenting.

Here we are stamping our little hearts out!

Here is the table at the end of the day!

Here is my mom, Shellie and myself...

Becca, Jane, Shellie, me and my mom!

As you can see we all had a fabulous time. Here is the swap I made to share at Regionals. I received some wonderful cards in exchange and can't wait to share a few of my favorites with you!

RECIPE: Stamps-Fifth Avenue Floral; Ink-Mellow Moss, Pale Plum, & Perfect Plum; CS-Chocolate Chip, Pale Plum, Perfect Plum & Whisper White; and Ribbon-Mellow Moss Grosgrain.



No, I haven't dropped off the face of the earth. =) Unfortunately the day after we returned from our family vacation we all came down with the stomach flu, one after the other. So it has taken us longer to get back into the swing of things than I expected. But I haven't forgotten all of you out there in blog land!! I have also been busy creating and putting all the ideas floating around on my head on paper. So I will have some great pictures to post this weekend of my upcoming Mother's Day Class, other projects, my swaps for Seattle Regionals and all the great make n' takes I will make at Regionals. Right now I need to get busy stamping so I will be ready for Saturday. Have a great Friday!!
