Stamp your Heart Out Class

My upline Kim and I will be hosting a Stamp Camp together every month at her home in Palmer Township. (If you are interested contact me for more info and directions)
This month we are going to focus on your SWEETHEARTS and we have a Valentine Theme going on to give you a few ideas on little Valentine treats you can duplicate very easily or just give away the ones you make at class. I tried uploading the photo, but for some reason it isn't working. I will try later when I get home, since I am doing today's post from work. SSSSSHHHHHHH don't tell my boss.

We will be using the I (heart) Hearts Stamp set and the same colors on all projects. Real Red, Pretty in Pink, Basic Black, Very Vanilla and Whisper White. Also, the NEW Pretty in Pink Satin Ribbon, Sending Love Specialty Paper, and Epoxy Brads from the New Occasion Mini Catalog. If you haven't gotten yours - email and I will get one out to you. Now is the BEST time of year to be ordering or hosting a class or workshop. With every $50 in merchandise before tax & Shipping you get to pick a FREE Sale-A-Bration item out of that mini. You can also check out my website for further details.

So you want to come to this class? Well, it will be Saturday, January 30th from 9AM-12PM and the cost will be $20.00 for 4 projects. (1- an acetate candy box, 2- a tent card, 3- ghiradelli candy holder and 4- conversation heart candy pull out) You will need to bring your favorite adhesive, bone folder and scissors. I hope to see you there.

Home from Phoenix Leadership

It was so nice to meet up with Chris, Pam and Kim at the Make & Takes. I usually only get to see them at these events which make it extra special. We were the makers and they were the takers. We completed ours and they are taking theirs to do at home. They were great projects. I will post pictures later of them.
Here is Susan, Kim and I with a cup of Starbucks before we head up to the Final General Session of Leadership. It had been a very eventful 3 days by this point and we just needed a little pick up. Not to mention there wasn't a line. The day before I think I missed almost a whole class waiting in line, but I just really needed the caffeine. Learning and trying to soak in all of this info is exhausting.

This photo is of the 3 of us in our Hotel Lobby. Phoenix is very Retro/Modern. I love it! The decor was absolutely BEAUTIFUL!
I asked John if he'd mind if I decorated my Mini Van like this. He said ummm... you're not doing that. So he settled for the little SU! Decor Element that I bought. Just like the one on the window. I think I need to take my car to the car wash first. So be sure to check it out next time you see me passing you by on the road.

So there are a few highlights of my trip. I Love What I Do! John told me last night that as soon as Jonathan graduates and the kids are all settled with college, I can quit my job and focus on Stampin' Up! SERIOUSLY???? I LOVE my husband so much and he is so supportive and that means so much to me too! Right now we need my income from my job to help pay for College of 3 kids. I see the light though! woo hoo!!!! Jonathan is in 11th grade!

The message from Dale (SU! CEO) was "The Main Thing, is to keep the Main Thing, the Main Thing." and that is my motto for this year. His message was very goodand I plan to follow it. Also to reach out and tell as many people as I can "My Story" and why "I Love What I Do!"

Now I really need to unpack and enjoy the day with my husband (even if it's sitting next to him watching NFL playoffs today.

Enjoy your day.
