Starter Kit Deal!

While I was at the Stampin' Up seminar in Seatlle, we were offered a special, only available to those who attended the event!

I am allowed to offer $60 off the Demonstrator Starter Kit for the next 7 days! The starter kit contains over $400 worth of supplies, and if you purchase from me now, it is only $189.00! If you have spent more than $250 in Stampin' Up product in the past, this is the smartest way to go. You will get 30% off your first order, and 20% off subsequent orders for a minimum of 6 months, even if you hold no classes.

I am also offering to purchase the business supplies (for $30) from anyone who isn't interested in running a business, and just wants the stamping products. You will also get the Stampin' Up magazines for 6 months or more. Contact me by April 28th to get in on this savings!

Inspired in Seattle!

I am just recently back from Stampin' Up's seminar in Seattle, where I spent all day Saturday learning new stamping techniques, class ideas, and project ideas. I am so excited to share all these things with you!

It was an early start, getting up at 4am to drive to Seattle for a 7:30 start!

Here are Barb and Tracy, as we waited in line to get in. There was alot of swapping going on!

(Below) Here I am with my upline, and good friend, Kristina Koch. Kristina has an amazing group of over 200 Stampin' Up Demonstrators in the lower mainland! Her group is called Colorful Impressions, and Kristina is an inspiration to me, who leads a helpful, positive, inspiring and creative group of ladies, and I am proud to be associated with them. We were having such a great time!

Below are the attending ladies from my own Whimsical Impressions Demonstrator Team. We got a chance to chat with Shelli Gardner, the founder and CEO of Stampin' Up. (You can see a pic of Shelli's family in the front of each Stampin' Up catalogue) It is always an honor to hear Shelli speak, and see her show us her hand-stamped projects on stage. She is a very easy to approach, down to earth person, with an amazing business now in 7 countries around the world, and yet she is so humble.

I look forward to sharing some of the fabulous things I learned with you, in the coming days, weeks and months! You are going to LOVE them as much as I do!!

Have a fabulous day!

Happy Easter!

Hope you are finishing off the wonderful Easter weekend with a great day! We've had some great family gatherings, with lots of food, chocolates and laughter. We've got one more gathering tonite, but in the meantime, I wanted to send you this Easter project.

2009 - Feb 011 

This is a "Diaper Fold" gift pouch, and it uses no adhesive to hold it together.

2009 - Feb 013 

We made a similar one for Valentines Day in Stamp Club....shown below.

2009 - Feb 012

It's very easy to do. If you'd like to learn how to make this, feel free to contact me at and we can set up a time for me to show you! 

Happy Easter!
