New Feature!

I've added a button for using PayPal to purchase class registration.  This allows you to use a credit card to pay for classes and class packets since I can only take credit through SU!  It's taken me a while to decide to do this because since my PayPal is business related I will end up paying a fee to them.  However, I felt it was more important to make it easier for you guys to get signed up!  Having said that, the option is always there to just email me with your request at, and mail me a check to 2517 E. Indigo Brush Rd., Phoenix, AZ  85048.

I have the New Catalog 10/10 listed, and both Christmas 10/10's, as well as a NEW class!  I've decided, due to many recent requests, to do a Halloween Handouts class!  This will be on Friday night, Oct. 26 from 6:30 - 9:30.  It's $20, and we'll make a BUNCH of great give-aways for your friends, relatives, and co-workers for Halloween.  Here's a sample of one project - many more in the days to come!  The only difference between this sample and mine will be the ribbon, as she used something I don't have!

Don't miss out!

I'm back!

It's been over a year since I posted, and what a hard year it was.  But, things are better now, I'm on the road to much better health, and I'm happily stamping again!  We had a wonderful Open House this weekend!  Lots of lovely guests, fun stamping, good talk...  One of the cards we made was this one, using the Four Seasons hostess set:

I had put in the leaf stamp from the set, and suggested that people could use it on their envelopes.  However, several creative guests used it instead of the bird in the middle and it was so cute!  I was browsing on our Stampin' Up! blog/showcase for demonstrators Stampin' Connection (one of the MANY perks of being a demonstrator!) and found this adorable card by Deborah Hedstrom-Page, using that same leaf stamp:
Isn't it gorgeous!  And so simple!  Now I have this terrible craving for the new Sizzix Bigz die of leaves.... And don't you love the new Howlstooth and Scaringbone Designer Series Paper?!  We'll be using that in our fun Halloween get-together on Friday, October 27.  More about that in a day or two after I get some samples together. 

We are going to have SO much fun this year!!!

Oh, I'm so bad...

It has been SO long since I've posted - the first thing I had to do is get that snowy background off of the page!  Winter is never good for me, due to health stuff.  Now it's spring, almost summer, and I'm back in the groove! 

Upcoming classes: 
Friday Fun Five "Boys n' Girls"  this Friday, May 20, from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.  We'll focus on masculine cards, with one or two girl cards.  $12
Birthday 10/10  this Sunday, May 22 from 2:00 - 5:00  Get your bday card stash filled to the brim!  $20

Here's some temptation for you.  The first two are from the Friday class, the other two for Sunday.  And, yes, I DO love that sailing set!!!

Awesome Workshop!

Many thanks go out to Tracie R. and her family and friends for such a WONDERFUL workshop tonight!  Such a lovely group of gals!  I especially love it when people say, "I can NOT do this!" and then when they're done they can't believe what they did.  It's also fantastic to see the younger stampers learning early - we had a 14 yr old and a 7 yr old and they were SO creative.

Don't miss out on YOUR opportunity to hold a Sale-a-Bration workshop!  My calendar is filling up, and March has spring break to work around, so call or email me today to set up your own fun get-together.  I don't do a big sell - I just show you how stamping and SU! work, I demo one card, and then we make two cards together.  We're usually done in under three hours.  And you don't have to have a ton of people, either!  There were just nine of us tonight, but we rocked the house!

Here's the card I demonstrated:

 Here are the two cards we made - simple but WOW, the best kind.

Now it's definitely YOUR turn!

There are also some classes coming up:  Punch Pizzazz is MOVING to Sunday, March 6, and I'm changing the format a bit.  We'll make seven fantastic cards using the Sizzix and our many cool punches.  These are a little challenging but are definitely worth the time! The cost is $20 PLUS you get 25% off any punch or Sizzix item (except the Big Shot).  Also coming up is the All Thru the Year 10/10 on Sunday, Feb. 27 from 2:00 - 5:00 OR Thursday, March 3 from 9:30 - 12:30.  Ten quick and easy cards for those special occasions that come up - birthday, new baby, wedding, sympathy, and so on.  Just $20!  Remember - I have lots of different sayings stamps, so if you want to change the saying, I'll work with you to make it happen.

Here are some samples:

The first three pictures are from the Punch Pizzazz class.

And these two are from the All Thru the Year 10/10.  Remember that you can make each card say whatever you want!

Happy New Year!

Hope the holidays were wonderful for all of you.  We loved having the girls home from their first year in college...for a whole month!  Which is one of the reasons I've been SO bad about my posts!  Anyway, they're back in Flagstaff, and I'm back here and ready to kick off a new semester of my own.  I've changed the upcoming class list a bit, so if you were interested in a particular class, make sure to check my event calendar at to make sure the class is still scheduled.

We had a great time here on Sunday with the Love You Much 10/10.  Here's most of the cards we did!

This sayings set has over 25 choices!

This is a size I don't do very often but it's a lot of fun!

This set is from the Sale-a-Bration free items!

Can you tell I really like this hydrangea set?!

Pretty amazing bunch of cards for just $20!  Join us next Sunday, January 30, from 2:00 - 5:00 if you'd like to get in on the fun - make sure to RSVP first!!!  Also, I may be holding a class on Thursday, Feb. 3, from 9:30 - 12:30.  Check back to see!
