Celebrating Milestones

I love celebrating special milestones with my team! Stampin’ Up! offers new demonstrators a wonderful incentive program called Quick Start. If you hit certain goals within your first three and six months, you earn terrific rewards. I am overjoyed (though not terribly surprised) that both my new team members hit their six-month targets within their first three months! So at our most recent team meeting, I got to present each of them with a celebratory gift!

I just love this adorable little piggy and her charming, self-assured smile. This will make a great decoration for the craft room, don’t you think? The colouring on the piggy is actually my first try with the new Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers. I bought just the one pair so far, but I’m planning to get the whole set as a half-price item when I get to be club hostess next month.

I got to celebrate a milestone too! And what’s almost as good as a milestone celebrated with a handmade craft? A milestone celebrated with jewelry!! First, here’s the beautiful 30th anniversary pin that all demonstrators will receive this year. It’s amazing to think that Stampin’ Up! has been around for thirty years – it’s also their 15th anniversary in Canada this year!

And I was even more excited about this one – my Silver title necklace! I got this necklace absolutely free in recognition of my recent title advancement. I can’t wait to wear it to my next cardmaking workshop and show it off to everyone! It is so pretty in person!!

Here are the swap cards from our meeting. First, my square sampler card using Whole Lot of Lovely designer series paper and the Lovely Words thinlit dies. I just posted a tutorial for this card on my monthly email newsletter – if you’re not subscribed yet, send me an email and I’ll add you to the list!
Christina’s card uses the charming and funny Half Full stamp set and the Pinewood Planks embossing folder, which I have added to my wishlist after seeing so many great uses of this folder!

Claire wowed us with her decorated notecard box and narrow notecards, both decorated with the stunning Springtime Foils designer series paper. Can you see the shimmer of the copper foil?

This paper is available FREE with qualifying purchase, but only until the end of March! Contact me now to place your order, or shop online and use the hostess code below to get a free gift from me.

Have you ever thought about becoming a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator? I’d love to chat with you! Claire and Christina can tell you that our team meetings are fun, supportive, and informative. Sale-a-Bration is a great time to become a demo, as you will get two extra stamp kits in your starter kit! That’s up to a $297 value for just $135! Hurry as this bonus is only available until the end of March!

Team Meeting Swap Card

I got to host my first business meeting last week! I have two new teammates, and it was so fun to get together and share strategies and advice as a group. I also invited each member to make two swap cards using one or more products from the Occasions or Sale-a-Bration catalogues. Swap cards are a great way to get inspired, and it’s wonderful to be able to display products that you may not have yourself, at your classes.

Here’s the swap card I created, using the Waterfront stamp set. This was my first time playing with this set, and I can tell that I am going to get a lot of use out of it! I’m already thinking ahead to creating some masculine birthday cards, as well as friendship/support cards, and maybe some sympathy cards …. I think this set will even make good Christmas cards!

I love the sentiments in this set as well. “Friends make the good times better” definitely describes how I feel about my team. I’m excited to see what we will accomplish together!






Christina wowed us with her Barn Door Slider card. There are so many beautiful details on this card, and sliding out the “door” to reveal the hidden sentiment really adds an element of fun! I love the way she used the Balloon Celebration stamp set to create the dandelion puff!


Claire used the beautiful Amazing You stamp set and Celebrate You thinlits to create this breathtaking card in a colour combination I just love! Both these products are available free with a qualifying purchase during Sale-a-Bration, which runs until March 31st. She also decorated the inside of the card and the envelope, just to add that extra touch!

Wondering how she created that “JOY” at the bottom left of the card? It’s the “YOU” from the thinlit set, flipped back-to-front, and with part of the ‘u’ trimmed to create a J! How clever!
