I'm such a proud mama!  My dear friend, and 1st downline member of the INKY-BABE'S, Rhonda just got her 1st Stampin Up promotion!!  Rhonda joined my team last November and is really getting her business off to an amazing start!!  Not only did she join just before the holidays (the craziest time of the year) but she was also in the midst of the finishing work on her newly built home.  Talk about a trooper!! 
 Rhonda knew that despite all the craziness surrounding her it was the "right time" for her to join.  Is it the right time for you to join us?

  When you become a member of the Inky-Babe's during Sale-a-Bration here's what's in it for you:

1. An awesome up-line! I'm always here to help you by answering questions, offering advice, giving inspiration, and being a friend!
2. An awesome side-line!  An amazing group of girls to help inspire you and to offer business tips on how to grow your business.
3. A discount!!!  Join now for just $125!!  (Normal cost is $175.00) AND for every month you place an order you can choose either a FREE digital download for your "My Digital Studio" program, or a FREE package of Designer Series Paper (that's the 12x12 pretty ones! value $10.95+)
4.  It's Sale-a-Bration time, that means a GREAT start to your business!!  Stampers and paper-crafters who are familiar with SAB are jumping to have their workshops during this time.  Hostesses know they get more for FREE and customers know thier order will earn them a special FREE gift that they get to select!
5.  Our new IBC (Idea Book and Catalog) will be out in June.  This means 2 things: as a demonstrator you get to see it all first (and order some of it) AND your new customers will have brand new products to keep them stampin just a few month's from now!

Could it be the right time for you??  I'd love to have YOU on our team.  If you'd like to find out more, please contact me!

Happy Stampin~

A Big Shot owners DREAM!!  (Don't have a Big Shot? Book a workshop and let me help you save 50% on yours!)
This card has one of my favorite color combinations; Calypso Coral, Very Vanilla, Soft Suede and a splash of Pool Party!  The stamp set is from our upcoming Sale-a-Bration catalog (01/24/12, can't wait!!) called "Fresh Vintage", isn't is beautiful?  The coordinating DSP paper is also from the SAB catalog.  "Everyday Enchantment" DSP blends perfectly with our "IN-Colors".

A HUGE thank you to T&J Panzenhagen!!!

I have been trying for weeks to give you all a "Shop Now" button on this blog and a way for you to see the new catalogs etc but if you know me you also know I'm no computer genius by any means.  But as you can see...there they are just on the right hand side of this page...aren't they pretty??  Go ahead and click on's really cool, besides you know you want to!!
One of the things I love most about being a Stampin Up demonstrator is all the support you receive through them.  I have access to our Stampin Connection, a demonstrator only page.  I posted that I needed help with this new adventure and low and behold, I got responses almost instantly.  I didn't "get" what they meant (that whole non-genius thing again) and asked for clarification...and I got it from a fellow demonstrator  Telania and her hubby, John... I think they might be a husband and wife team (how cool) or he's an amazing and supportive hubby that answered my pleas for help...either way...a million thanks for their help!!
I've been in direct sales with two other companies over the past 15 years, and I have NEVER seen such an amazing supportive group of people!!  Stampin Up ROCKS!!!!
Until next time~
Happy Stampin and keep those fingers inky!

Mouthwatering fun!

Are your fingers inky? Mine are!!!

Have I told you how in love with the new Occasions Mini Catalog I am??  I really wish you had a scratch-n-sniff screen so you could really appreciate this card!  I used our new Mouthwatering Stamp Set along with the new Sweet Shop DSP.  This paper is so adorable, and some of the pages are already embossed!  The popsicles are stamped in 2011-2012 In Color inks, Calypso Coral, Island Indigo and Wisteria Wonder.  I  colored over the top with my Versa Mark Marker so I could use the new Melon scented embossing powder.  It smells heavenly!! A nice simple knot of Wisteria Wonder Ruffled Ribbon finishes it off!
 Wouldn't this be a great card or invitation for a kids party?

New Occasions Mini Catalog is LIVE!!

...and I've been very busy working on some great projects!!  There are so many amazing new products that you have to get your hands on too!!  Why not get the girls together for a fun-filled "Girls Night Out"??  This first creation is a combination of a layout I saw on Splitcoast Stampers for a modified gate fold card and some of our newest products, let me know what you think?
The background card stocks are two of the new in-color papers, Pool party and Calypso Coral.  Aren't they just beautiful together?  The background DSP (designer series paper) is Twitterpated, gorgeous isn't it?
I used our new Framelits with the Fresh Vintage Stamp and an adorable new brad from our Sale-a-Bration Catalog (choose one FREE with your $50 purchase starting 1/24!!!) 
Here's the inside of the card.  I used a very old stamp set that I just can't part with for the inside sentiment.
Hope you enjoy!
