Free Stamps!!!

I'm so excited because this is the first year that I'm close enough to earn the incentive trip. As a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator I'm able to earn free stamps and make money but I'm also able to earn points towards an incentive trip each year. This year the trip is to Hilton Head, SC. Wow! That would be such a nice trip and I hear there are pillow gifts every night of your stay. I so want to get those!

So in order to reach my goal I need a little bit more in sales. Since I don't want to just ask people for orders without giving them something I've decided to give away FREE STAMPS!

Here's how it works: You order from me from the new Catalog by June 30th. Your total before tax and shipping is what you can use to get stamps from the list below. If you order $100 you can pick $100 in Free stamps. Easy! If you are far away I can mail your free stamps to you for free as well.

Girl Scout Camp

Last week was a milestone. My two girls went away to camp without me. Of course I had to make them cute little packages, cards and a journal to write all their adventures in.



I used Stampin' Up! Crumb Cake envelopes and cut some cardstock to make these journals. The envelopes provided pockets for fun things they collected. I also provided them some ideas for using the journal.




I used packing paper to make little "cards" to insert into the envelopes. They could do leaf rubbings on them or draw a picture. I was sure they would be able to do this in their free time. LOL.



I also left some pages for them to write about their horse since it was a horse riding camp. Notice that I'm using my retired stamp sets. I know that's not fair to you all who want to get these stamps but I have to say that even as a demonstrator I do use my favorite stamps for fun projects for my girls, scrapbooks, etc. Never get rid of your favorites.

So I spent some time making this journal but I also made cute packages with toilet paper tubes. Here's the ones for Amanda:


Close up of Jessica's.


I had stamps made with their names on them because I knew it would be good for doing stuff like this.

Inside the tubes are charms for their bracelet. They had so much fun trying to guess what charm would be next.


Here's a picture of the girls with Dad on the first day of camp. We checked in at the front of the camp then hiked to the cabins. We helped them find their beds and set up their sleeping bags.


Leila and Amanda checking out the cabin.


Numa was their Camp Leader. She was super nice.




After getting the girls in their swimsuits Steve and I said goodbye and left. I don't know why but I cried and cried when I got home. I am not like this normally. In fact anytime I send the girls off I usually am, "woo hoo!" But this time I was just crying my eyes out and missed them so much! Luckily the next day Steve arranged for us to go on a nice relaxing trip. That took my mind off of the girls and I was able to relax and read my book and get a tan. I'll tell you more about that trip tomorrow.

I will also show you pictures of the cute cards I made the girls too. I made sure to send them three cards each. Can you imagine writing three letters to each girl and trying to make each one unique and different than the others. LOL. Not easy.

Well that's it for today.

God bless!

New Promotion!

Hello stampers! Here's a great new promotion just for hostesses! Earn an extra $50 when your party reaches $450. With the new catalog coming out it's sure to be at least that much! Let me know when you want to do a party or you can have a catalog party. I can bring you a stack of catties to hand out to your friends and then you can go shopping for free!


What can you get for hosting? You can get $115 of free product plus any item 50% off! (when you reach $450 in sales). But the free products start at $150 order. Earn $25 of free bonus bucks. No need to have a party. I give hostess benefits to all orders of $150 or more.

Another great promotion that is coming up is the stamp set Reason to Smile. Normally this set would cost $16.95 but you can get it for only $5 when you spend $50 or more next month.

Click Here for the flyer and image of stamp set.


It's only available for the month of July! As a demonstrator I can pre order the set. It's great to have those perks! I also got in the mail yesterday the New Holiday Mini Catalog. I don't think the word Mini should be in it since it's so BIG! I can't wait to get the new goodies to show you.

That's it for today. Stop by again tomorrow.
