The first Thursday of each month customers can enjoy a mini card class.  It is a time for me to pamper them with having all the projects ready to stamp and go.  Hopefully it inspires them to go home create some cards of their own or reproduce the cards we made.  Most often my inspiration comes from other stampers and this class was no exception. 

Here are the projects from the September Mini Card Class, be sure and mark October 7, 6:30 PM on you calendar and join me for the next one.  Remember you must RSVP.  Contact me for more information.

About 13 years ago I saw an invitation sitting on my Mom’s kitchen table to a Stampin’ Up! Party.  The invitation was sent by a long time family friend.  I asked my mom if I could go as her guest in hopes of seeing the hostess’s daughter, a friend whom I had not seen for a long time.

When we arrived it turned out the friend was the demonstrator.  The entire time I knew that stamping was not for me, but I did have daughter who was very creative, so to help my friend out I purchased a Basic Black in pad, pastels and a stamp set for our daughter.  To further help her get started in her new business venture I booked a workshop.  It wasn’t long before our daughter wanted me to stamp with her and the next thing you know I was hooked.  I am not talking about liking it a little I mean I could not get enough of it.

One day my husband said, I think if you sell that they give you a discount.   I started to think of all the money I could save making my own cards, so I purchased the starter kit.  I planned to hold a party or two each month for fun and extra money to purchase more stamps.  My calendar started to fill up with parties and I was having so much fun sharing my passion for Stampin’ Up!  I continue to Love what I do and Share what I love and now my income does more than purchase extra stamps.

I love what I do and one of my favorite things is to plan projects for Stampin' Up! Parties and classes.  There are so many ideas it is hard to narrow it down.   In July I featured the stamp set Friends are Forever.  Just imagine being able to enjoy sitting down and stamping a card for your good friend.  Think how special she will feel when she opens it and knows that in your busy life you took time to stamp her a card, just for her.  No matter if you are an expert stamper or new to stamping a Stampin' Up! party attending a party and making a hand stamped card is always fun.  Be sure and check out my calendar of events to attend an upcoming class or book your own party today, your friends will thank you for years to come!
