When you look up the definition of the word "nabbed" in the dictionary, you see words like: catch, capture, seize, grab... those are the perfect words, in my humble opinion, to describe becoming a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and "nabbing" the awesome Starter Kit. During SAB you can "capture" the savings of the kit, plus "grab" two additional stamp sets for FREE. The entire kit is customized to your Stampin' Up! needs and wants. Just pull out your Wish List, then start adding goodies to your Starter Kit and crossing them off your Wish List. Simple, simple, simple! Spoil yourself this year by becoming a "Kit Nabber" today.
AND I am giving away a FREE BIG SHOT during Sale-a-Bration. When join my team before March 31, 2017, I will put your name on three tickets and put them in the Big Shot Bucket; April 1, 2017 you may be the proud owner of a brand new, FREE BIG SHOT!
Visit my website 24/7 to join my team for only $99 (and the Starter Kit ships for FREE). www.rubberroom.stampinup.net

The 2017 club to be in!
If you only join one club this year, this is the one to join!

We live in a time where you can get anything and everything delivered right to your door.   Why not have your cards delivered too?  Well, now there is no reason not to have them delivered each and every month.  AND what could be more exciting than receiving three gorgeous, one-of-a-kind handmade cards in the mail each month?  NOTHING! Nothing could be more exciting than that!  We all love happy mail and this is a super convenient and inexpensive way to be able to send happy mail all year long.
This club is perfect for everyone, including those who fancy themselves as card connoisseurs who want to send that very special handmade card that is sure to put a smile on the recipient’s face.  And those who want their very own card stash.  No more running out at the last minute to pick up a card.  Simply open your card drawer, pull out a gorgeous creation and be on your way.  Don’t forget about those fellow crafters looking for new ideas delivered to their mailboxes every month.  Or those other Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators who love to get awesome, trendy cards made with all of the wonderful products Stampin’ Up! offers.  What about those who just love handmade cards and getting mail? It is perfect for them too.   Are you one of those people who have a hard time getting out to pick a card up, but love to send cards?  Well, now you can get beautiful handmade cards delivered right to your mailbox. 
How does it work?  It is super simple:  You sign up, I make and send you three cards every month.  The cards will vary each month, and you will receive one birthday card every month.  I will mail your cards on the 15th of the month.

The monthly cost is $10 (which includes mailing to you).  You can sign up for 3 months, 6 months or a year, and I will simply charge your credit card each month.  If you prefer to pay all at once and save some money, the three-month subscription is $25; the six-month subscription is $50 and the one year subscription is $100. 


Join me in the Rubber Room on Monday, January 30, 2017 from 10:00 to noon OR from 7:00-9:00 p.m. and be one of the first to see the new products released in the 2017 Occasions and FREE Sale-A-Bration products exclusively created to coordinate with the many new products available. There will be door prizes, two Make & Takes, and a SPECIAL PRIZE WHEEL for all who place an order and/or sign up for a class.  Cost to attend is $5 and you want to bring along your favorite adhesive.  I will supply everything else you need for this magical Premiere in the Rubber Room.  RSVP before midnight on January 20, 2017 in order to save your seat.

Have you had a terrific but busy holiday season and now you are looking to treat yourself? Well, I think I may know just what you need. Why not treat yourself to a full day of scrapbooking, card making or just crafting with friends? I will be participating in two different fundraising crops the end of this month. Below is the information for both of them and there are still spots available if you want to schedule some relaxing time for yourself.
AND, if you want to go but don't want to worry about what to take and packing, I will have kits available for sale. Just bring some adhesive, and I will help you with the rest.

 had a play date over the holiday break and we made these frames using the Beautiful You Stamp Set, the new (and oh-so-awesome) watercolor pencils and the By The Shore Designer Series Paper. Creative credit goes to "littlecraftycorner.com". We copied her idea and just switched up a few colors. Her creation had a white frame, but after some discussion, Caroline Luongo Morgan, and I decided we might like a black frame.

Please leave comment and let me know which frame you prefer.
