We had plenty of snacks to keep us nourished!


Sharlie and Suzanna are ready to get started!


Linda and Rebecca are pleased to be here! YAY!


Jennie is glad to be able to get away and stamp!


Gerene loves to stamp! Michele came all the way from Baltimore, Maryland to stamp wtih us! We're so glad she did!

Come back tomorrow to see more of our wonderful retreat! 

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!

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.






Come back tomorrow for more pictures from this wonderful event!

1.  Who is the TEA designed for?

We designed this event for those who love to stamp, and those who have not stamped much before.  It is perfect for you to bring your mom, daughter, sister, dear friend~whoever you might want to include for a great "girl's day out."  It will be a fun time of relaxing, crafting, eating, talking, giggling... all the things we girls love to do together!  This will be a wonderful "early Mother's day" celebration day for you, and those you love!


2.  Can you explain a little about the cost? 

Sure!  The cost of the event is determined by the cost of the stamp set we'll be using, TEA SHOPPE, the cost of the delicious catered tea/lunch, all the supplies, prepared for you, for all the projects, and your own personal tea cup and saucer.  There will also be some fun surprises, and door prizes!  

3.  I don't have an Occasions Mini catalog. Can you show a picture of the TEA SHOPPE stamp set?

Of course!  There are 10 stamps in the set. 



4. Where is the Yorba Linda Community Center?

It is on Imperial Highway, at the corner of Casa Loma;  about 3 miles east of the 57 Freeway. The address is 4501 Casa Loma in Yorba Linda.


5.   What if I already have the Tea Shoppe stamp set?

If you already have the set, you may order different product that totals the value of the clear mount TEA SHOPPE stamp set, $27.95.  Your substitution order needs to accompany your admission fee for the TEA.



6.  What clear blocks will I need if I chose clear mount Tea Shoppe set?

You will need blocks A, C, G, and H.  If you have Block B, bring it, but you don't need to order it for the day.  You can place the order for your blocks when you make your reservation. 

7.  What if we want to come with a friend and we want to share a stamp set?   Can we substitute some other products? 

Yes, if you would like to share a stamp set you are welcome to.  Just like in #5 above, you may substitute other product that is equal in value to the clear mount Tea Shoppe stamp set ($27.95).  Your order of the substitute product needs to accompany your your admission fee.  We ask that you share one stamp set with no more than two people, so that the projects can be finished in a timely manner. 


8.  What projects will we be making?

Well.. without giving away all the surprises of the day.. we will be making 5 cards with matching envelopes, a set of 3 x 3 gift card enclosure cards, a darling mini composition notebook "purse", a set of four coaster/tiles~ and a few more surprises!


9.  Is it possible to get an extension of the Early Bird deadline?

Yes, of course. If you are working to get your group together and just won't quite make it by Monday, let your demonstrator know by Monday the names of those  planning on attending, and submit your admission as soon as possible. 

10.   Who do I make my check out to for the Tea?

Make your check out to your Stampin' Up! demonstrator. 


11.  Is there a minimum number of people needed to make this event a "GO"?  

We would like to have 50 people at the Tea... so invite your friends!


12.  I can't wait to sign up!   What do I do next?

If you are planning on attending the tea, the first thing you should do is let your demonstrator know! Then, get your information to her, along with your fees, to  your demonstrator as soon as you can!  If you are hoping to get in on the Early Bird Discount, your demonstrator needs to know of your plans.




Two weeks ago I had a fabulous group of women come to my home for my first ever HOLIDAY EXTRAVAGANZA.  I served a continental breakfast, and lunch, and they enjoyed stamping several projects!

We all had a great time!  Here are just a few of the projects they got to make, and take home!


A pumpkin favor for their Thanksgiving table, made with the Big Shot.


Framed art

Snowman Mints!


A decorated gift bag



Notepad and matching pen

These are just a few of the very fun things we made!  In addition, they made a Christmas abum in a tin, and 8 beautfiul cards!  

Would you like to be part of a big stamping day like this?  I have one in the planning stages for the spring of 2012.  Be sure you are signed up for my newsletter (see the link on the left sidebar) so you can receive all the information!
