My Blog is Moving!

I know it’s been quiet over here lately.  Well I have news….my blog is moving!  I finally got my own domain name and I’m moving my blog over to the new site. Now you will be able to find me here – atmonikasplace.com

So I won’t be posting on this blog site any more.  If you are subscribed by email you should automatically start receiving the updates from the new blog once I start posting over there.  I’m still working on getting everything cleaned up and looking pretty on the new site so there will still be some “construction” going on.  But I wanted to let you know that I won’t be posting here anymore.

I hope you will come join me At Monika’s Place …..

Welcome

Hi everyone!  Welcome to my blog!

welcome-card

I’d love to be able to send you a card like this to say Welcome to the Stampin’ Up! Family!

I just mailed one out to one of my new team members last week.  I made this cute card using the Flying Home stamp set in the Occasions Catalog and the Banners for You stamp set from the Annual Catalog.  I used an aquapainter and my ink pads to watercolor the images.

It is a great time to join my Stampin’ Up! Team.  My team is the PAWS team.  And PAWS stands for Play A lot With Stamps.  We meet monthly in my classroom, go on a retreat in the summer, and we are already planning our trip to the Stampin’ Up! OnStage event in Orlando, Florida for November.  2018 is going to be a fun year!

During Sale-a-Bration you can purchase the Stampin’ Up! Starter Kit for $99 – Free shipping – but you do have to add tax.  And do you know what you can get for that?

  • You’ll choose $125 worth of Stampin’ Up! products
  • TWO Free additional stamp sets (of any value – choose the most expensive one if you want that’s another $100)
  • you get business supplies
  • a past Paper Pumpkin kit ($20)
  • Free Shipping (yay!)

You’ll only pay $99! Want an even better deal? Ask me about using Stampin’ Rewards to reduce the cost of your Starter Kit so you can join for less, or even FREE! You’ll love what this opportunity brings into your life, and trust me: seeing a customer’s face when they stamp for the first time is priceless. Visit my website and click JOIN THE FUN!

Mini Bags

Sometimes when I’m out shopping I come across little bags and think I have to have those because they would be cute for something.  I don’t know exactly what I’m going to do with them but figure at some point in time I will find a good use for them.  A few months back I found these little silver mini bags and bought a stack of them.,  I ended up using them for my Demo Getaway Retreat at the end of July.

in-colors-bags

I decided to use the new In-Colors to decorate them.  I used the 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon and tied it in a bow around the handle.  Then made a tag in the same color to hang on the handle.

craft-bag

I used two new punches – Starbust punch and the Pretty Label punch.  I stamped on the Pretty Label – “we are cut out to be friends” – from the stamp set Crafting Forever.  I also stamped the paper snips on Smoky Slate card stock and cut those out to add on the tag.  I finished each tag with a little silver enamel heart and tied it on the bag with Whisper White Baker’s Twine.  I thought they turned out so cute.

Inside each bag was a ruler, a pencil sharpener, an eraser, a sheet of dimensionals and mini dimensionals and a Stampin’ Sponge.  A few little crafting essentials that I like to always have near by.

It was a really fun weekend event and I can’t wait to do it again.

Thanks for visiting today.

Happy Anniversary!

Today is my 10 year anniversary with Stampin’ Up!  I can’t believe it has been 10 years since I bought my starter kit.  I have met tons of dear friends from all over the world!  Not one time did I ever think why did I do this.  Most of the time I think why didn’t I do it sooner!  I had been stamping about 10 years before i ever considered joining.

I decided to go back through my photos and see if I could find something I made when I first started.  I found a photo from a Hands-On class in April 2006.  We made these little candles and a matching card.  It used the Lovely as a Tree stamp set and guess what it is still in our catalog today!
