Amazing You Stamp Set and Celebrate You Thinlits!


I know you saw my post the other day about Stampin'Up!'s product of the week (see that post HERE),  but were you able to watch my Facebook Live Video on Wednesday, January 10th? You can see the Facebook video HERE. The Amazing You Stamp Set, when paired with the Celebrate You Thinlits, is well... AMAZING!


I made my first card using BOTH of those wonderful Sale-A-Bration choices! And I had just received it Tuesday night.

These two combine so nicely and make such a quick and easy card!

Check it out!

Sale-A-Bration Product of the Week!

There are SO many wonderful choices in the Sale-A-Bration brochure this year; I want ALL of them!

So... here's one of the fabulous offerings - actually TWO of them! Read on!
Amazing You Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set

And coordination is key with this set!

While the stamps work well on their own... The thinlits are also a great stand-alone - BUT together is when they really make magic!

One of the benefits of coordination that I LOVE LOVE LOVE is that creativity becomes much easier when I don't have to hunt down items to pair. Instead, I can reach for what I already KNOW goes well together.

AND with a $150 order during Sale-A-Bration, BOTH the stamp set AND the thinlits can be earned - FOR FREE - and Stampin'Rewards are earned on top of that! WIN - WIN - SCORE!!

Want to see it in action? From a Stampin'Up! youtube video? Check it out!


And - SPOILER ALERT - those thinlits will be in the NEW 2018-2019 Catalog. And you can earn them for FREE now! DOUBLE SCORE!

You can order ONLINE and when you qualify, you can also earn YOUR spot to my Sale-A-Bration Celebration in April! This is only for those who place $150 / or THREE $50 orders with me (less than $150 - make sure you use the Host Code!). Order amounts are before shipping and taxes. The easiest way to think of it - earn THREE (3) Sale-A-Bration items when you place you orders with me.

Place your Online Order HERE. Use Host Code DNAXBTU3 and receive five free cards from me with your Thank You Note. *If you order is over $150, do not use the host code.

Remember - all amounts listed are BEFORE shipping and tax

How about a Technique Class offered once a month, with different techniques each month?

I'm calling it the 'Nique Geek (TechNique) and it will be offered the THIRD THURSDAY of each month.

You can always read more about it on my CLASSES page or view my CALENDAR for upcoming dates.

#imbringingbirthdaysback - FINAL MONTH!

Crafters -


Shannon West from Stampin'Up! started this about two years ago. Of course, I'm like everyone else and when I see that it is someone's birthday on Facebook, I just wish them a Happy Birthday there too!

But what about an actual birthday card, in the mail? Well...

I have been sending birthday cards each month to my customers (well, those who have given me their birthdates!). And this is the final month of birthday cards for 2017!

December's seems to be a little light, but there were months that had a LOT more than this!

I have really enjoyed sending these each month and I hope you have enjoyed receiving them!

Don't forget to register for January's classes! You can see them HERE. We will be concentrating on BIRTHDAY cards for 2018!

Onto preparing for THE birthday of the year! Don't know about you, but I'm really looking forward to Christmas and celebrating HIS birth in a couple of weeks.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Crafters -

I know we are all from different parts, but here in the United States, TODAY is Thanksgiving.

We are celebrating it with my mother-in-law. My mom is having, I think she said 13 people over. Over the summer, she gave me her china - doesn't use it much anymore and she knew I would like it.

Before she and my dad married, we lost my dad to cancer (#cancersucks) a couple years ago, she would purchase a place setting each week (paydays were weekly back then!). So while I will not be spending Thanksgiving with my mom, both she and dad will be part of our Thanksgiving dinner.

Mom actually flew up last week to surprise me. Well, she got a surprise too! I had two classes and Ronald McDonald House scheduled while she was here so she was able to craft with us!

Want to see what we made at Ronald McDonald House on Sunday? But first, I gotta tell you, the kids were so stinkin' cute! I know there was candy involved, but everyone smiled when they made these little turkeys - they were just so much fun!

The kids (and adults!) held the turkey for the photo. Some of the kids even shook the turkey to say "Gobble! Gobble" for the photo! I just LOVE that Stampin'Up! supports Ronald McDonald House Charities! If you are a local demo, please sign up to volunteer at the Ronald McDonald House - especially the Columbus one - you will not regret it. It's all about the kids and we have a LOT of fun!

Ok, so without further ado, here are the creations the kids and adults made. I know there is a story with each one of them and I pray they are enjoying family today as well...
Bottom right photo - the young man told me that his turkey treat was called Mr. Gobbles.
I liked that so much, I started using it throughout the day!

These were made by two brothers.
After they made the first one,
they EACH wanted to make another one - this time for their mom!The boys posed with BOTH of their turkeys.
The blurry one is saying "Gobble! Gobble!" for the camera.  :)

These just make me smile!

Top photo turkeys were made by three adults.
Bottom photo turkeys were made by three brothers, with dad's help!

I think these chocolate stuffed turkeys look DELICIOUS!

Kids at work on the top
Parents displaying their beautiful turkeys on the bottom!

This is what we started with.
So blessed to be a part of this!

The table when we began!
Made it easy to help each person make his or her own Mr. Gobbles!
Happy Thanksgiving!

Do not be anxious about anything,
but in every situation, by prayer and petition,
with thanksgiving,
present your requests to God.
And the peace of God,
which transcends all understanding,
will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:6-7 (KJV)

Mr. Gobbles - Ready for KIDS and Thanksgiving!

Crafters -

This past Sunday, I was at Ronald McDonald House in Columbus, Ohio. And since it was so close to Thanksgiving, I wanted to do a craft for the kids FOR Thanksgiving!

Check back on Thanksgiving Day to see the fun ones that the kids made! LOVED every single one of them! We had little kids all the way to Grandmas and Grandpas making these - they were THAT MUCH FUN!


On Wednesday, I do a Facebook Live at 11:30 am Eastern. Guess what I demonstrated today? You got it! GO! Check it out on my Facebook business page! You can find it at Here's MY Mr. Gobbles:

Columbus Ronald McDonald House

Crafters -

I know I'm preaching to the choir, but Saturday nights MAY have changed for some...

Back in the day, we may have enjoyed going out, having dinner, staying out late.

NOW, seems like staying up until 11pm on a Saturday night is a BIG night! (Can I get an AMEN?!)

Well, my mom (she's also part of my team) flew up for a surprise visit. She knew I had two card classes during her visit. BUT I also have Ronald McDonald House today as well. I've been putting her to work during this visit!  :)

While I try to prep a few days in advance, this past week has been a WHIRLWIND! Sunday, I returned home from Salt Lake City and #OnStage2017; Tuesday was my Latte Joy Team Meeting; Thursday was Christmas Card Class; and Saturday was Coffee and Cards. Busy, busy, busy!

So, mom and I were prepping for TODAY'S Ronald McDonald House. Did you know that Stampin'Up! is a sponsor for Ronald McDonald House Charities? Did you know that we craft ONCE A MONTH with the residents at the Columbus Ronald McDonald House? YUP! We craft each month on the THIRD SUNDAY and we have an absolute BLAST! The kids are SO MUCH FUN!

Now... I'm not gonna give away the surprise for our goofy turkey, stuffed with CHOCOLATE, but I think the kids will have an absolute BLAST! Want to see what supplies I'm taking with me today?
Different colored "leaves," googly eyes, and plenty of extra adhesives!

Mom must have punched out about 500 of those leaves in different (retired) colors! I had the MOST FUN placing those colored googly eyes onto the glue dots. And each time I look at my goofy turkey sample, I just smile and giggle; he's so silly looking!

Can't wait to "play" with our turkeys today at the Columbus Ronald McDonald House!

LOVE my Coffee! #OnStage2017

Crafters -

You know my team name is the Latte Joy Stampers. I just LOVE my coffee (seriously, I would take it intravenously if I could!)!

Tonight is my team meeting, and I always type our agenda and share it with my team on our team Facebook page. This is how I'm starting my morning and I'm so thankful and blessed!

AND check out what Stampin'Up! had in our #2017OnStage bag!

Of course, I absolutely loved the stamp sets, the training, the pens, the notebook, all the fun stuff we did, the swaps, THE PEOPLE, and the list could go on and on, but... small confession here... I really liked this coffee mug the best!

Not saying I would have given up a cool new stamp set to trade someone for this mug, but I really would have thought about it!

If you are looking for a Stampin'Up! demonstrator for your products and classes, I'd love to talk with you. My email address is on the sidebar (if on your desktop) and it's also in the header.

If you are looking to JOIN Stampin'Up! and become a Happy Stamper enjoying your own discount, I'd love to talk with you! OR you can just CLICK HERE to join online!

Looking forward to talking with you soon!

Crafters -

I am SO on Cloud 9 right now! So much so that I cannot even wrap my brain around this!

This is me right now!

Stampin'Up! has announced SEVERAL things today (I've been updating my Facebook page - feel free to check it out HERE),


I received a text from my FABULOUS team leader (she also offers wonderful training to us), but she texted me to tell me that I was #117 in the United States!


when I looked a little closer, found out that I was #229 GLOBALLY!

Seriously, my brain is not even understanding this very well yet. I had set out to earn the Alaskan cruise for me, my family, and our moms. And now this... WOW! Just WOW!

I am absolutely so humbled and blessed! I'll post more when words actually come to me. I know you understand my excitement!

Thank you so much for your support and encouragement with my business. I appreciate my customers, my team, my team leader, my teammates, more than words can express! Thank you so very much!
