New Stamparatus - How can you get one?

Have you heard about the Stamparatus! 
Check out the video:

It is so amazing!  I can't wait to get one!

The MOST exciting announcement at On Stage Live was the upcoming release of the Stamparatus! It's a brand new, VERY different, stamp positioning tool that I've had the honor of helping to design over the past few years. 

YOU will be able to RESERVE yours on November 16th, 3:00pm Central

With the launch of this tool, we’re trying something different: testing a new reservation system. It acts like a true preorder: you reserve your spot and we guarantee shipment as soon as the product arrives in our warehouse. Demonstrators and customers will place reservations and receive their product at the same time. This system will allow us to get the product to market as soon as possible while avoiding backorders and efficiently managing inventory.
The global launch will feature three reservation windows. For each window, please note the following:
  • Reservation quantities are while supplies last.
  • Limit is 3 tools per demonstrator and 1 tool per customer per reservation window.
  • You may participate in multiple reservation windows.
  • In order to reserve your Stamparatus, you are required to provide your credit card information.
  • Credit cards will not be charged until the Stamparatus ships from our facility. When you close your order, be sure to verify that your credit card and shipping information is correct.
  • FAQ's Regarding Launch
            Reservation Windows                           Available to Ship
                    November 16-30, 2017                                Approx. February 1, 2018
                    December 5-30, 2017                                   Approx. March 19, 2018
                    January 15-30, 2018                                     Approx. April 15, 2018

Demonstrator:  Patience Holt, Maumelle, Arkansas  # 2149391

Happy Stamping!

On Stage Recap

Hey Everyone.  OnStage with Stampin’Up! Was just the best this year.  My Stampaversary will be in January and I plan to have a party.  Before that - I just want you to know that because of my customers, my UpLine –Kay Cogbill, my SideLines and my DownLines, I was able to attend CentreStage for the first time.  I got to walk across the stage and everyone cheered.  It was very exciting to go and be recognized, treated to a special dinner and lunch with entertainment, motivational speaker and training in different areas of the business.  

Below are some pictures of our group.  There was 7 of us in our group this year.  Kay Cogbill, Lana Dunn, Elizabeth Mayfield-Hart, Cindy Griffin, Virginia Porta, Crystal Clay and ME.

Thankful Harvest

Hello everyone.  Monthly card class was fun last night.  I have a group of 3 to 6 people that come on a monthly basis. I ask them to bring friends and they do!.  I have met some wonderful people and we have a great time.

We made 4 projects last night.  3 cards and 1 treat box.  It was based around Fall and Halloween theme.

Have a great day and I hope you like the pictures.

I added this card because I was working on it when the class started and I completed it after class.
I love all the textures and different colors.

Half Full? or Half empty?

Ever ask yourself if you are Half Full or Half Empty?   I think that I am a Half Full kind of person.  Recently, I could not sleep, so I strolled through the house to the craft studio and picked a stamp set to play with.  I came up with this card.

I like the way it turned out. Here is what I used
Stamp Set is Half Full
Card Base is Fresh Fig
Card addition is Crumb Cake
Inside writing surface is Crumb Cake
Card Topper is  Wood Textures Paper
Green Designer Series Paper - from Whole Lot of Lovely
Stickers are from Eastern Gold
Black Archival Ink
Stampin Write Markers - Old Olive, Perfect Plum & Daffodil Delight
I also used a Blender Pen for the variation of color on the grapes

Have a great day!

Love Today Planner

Good Afternoon.  I have just spent a few hours putting together my new planner for this next year.  I always impatiently wait for the beginning of the academic year calendar or at the end of the year trying to find a planner/calendar of the new year.  The wait is over.  I have found a planner that I can customize to start on any month of the year!  Just take a look at the gorgeous color of the binder - Size is 7-3/4 x 8-3/4 x 2 inches.  Perfect to put in my purse!

 This planner will help keep you o schedule and give you a creative outlet too.  It is included in an all-inclusive kit that has everything you need to create a customizable yearly planner.  There are no dates printed, so you can start when you want.
Small pocket folder
Monthly view Calendar Pages
You can see from the photos that the colors are beautiful and you have lots of things included in the kit.  The kit comes with 12 Divider pages, calendar pages, 4 photo protector pages, a 5x7 page lifter/bookmark, 3 pages each of printed and gold foil accent stickers/embellishments and 3 cute packages of coordinating sticky notes.   
Beautiful cover page for each month

Extra Folder that I made to hold anything extra that I might want to put into my binder.  We will be making 3 of these in the class to add to your binder.

One of the many different monthly divider pages.

Lots of room to add details.  I have found that I journal on some of my days!

5x7 Page lifter/bookmark that is included

2x2 photo squares! Fun for putting little photos of my kids or even regular size photos that I cute into squares!  These photo pockets also can hold the coordinating sticky notes.

printed stickers/embellishments
Notes section for the back of each month/ I have found that I put my To Do list there.  If I do not get them done, I just carry them over to the next month.

Foil stickers/embellishments
I would love to have a Planner Party for you any your friends.  The cost of the party would be $42.00 This would include everything you need for your planner plus a few extras.  You can contact me directly at
