Special Announcement



About three weeks ago, Stampin' Up! announced that they were going to have a new and creative way to introduce the new, upcoming annual catalog to the demonstrators! As you can imagine, we all were quite curious to see what they had in mind!  


Then, they let us know that they were going to hold a LIVE EVENT to share the catalog, and that that event would be broadcast to 40 different movie theaters in 40 different cities throughout the USA and Canada.  Demonstrators will be able to go to their nearest city and theater and see the live presentation!  




WOO HOO!!!   


It is right here in our own back yard!  YAY!

And here's even more good news!  If you sign up to become a demonstrator, you can go with us!  

How fabulous is that? 


Guess what else you get if you become a demonstrator?  

You get FREE registration for Stampin' Up's! annual convention in Salt Lake City! That is a $275 value!  

And of course, you get your Starter Kit:  

$150 worth of product (you pick it!) for $99!   

THAT is a great deal!   

But you only have till today, Monday, March 31,  

to get in on that deal!

WOW!  All this fun stuff going on!  You can see why I am so excited!!!

Tea Shoppe Event

What a fabulous time we had at our Tea Shoppe event on March 24! Forty women stamping, eating, laughing, and enjoying each other!  Did you miss it?  Here are some pictures that tell the story of a great day!

When everyone arrived, they got to pick their own teacup and saucer.  When they got to their table, there was a bag with their initial on it for them to put their projects in throughout the day. 


These ladies are having a great time working on their projects.
