Congratulations to my Team Members – October 2011

A sincere "From the Heart Stampers" congratulations goes out to the top sales people on my team for the month of October!  We also had an AMAZING month with 12 new team members joining our group in October (and 4 more in November)!  You ladies rock!  And here's the special card I made them.

With the pretty prints in the Timeless Portrait Designer Series Paper, it's easy to create beautiful color combinations!  Here I've used River Rock, Cherry Cobbler and Not Quite Navy.  Although the suggested color for the designer paper is Island Indigo, the darker shade of blue gives this card a more vintage look.  I've also used a snip of Newsprint Designer Series Paper sponged with Crumb Cake Classic Ink.  Sentiment is from Perfectly Penned and includes some Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding Ribbon.  Don't forget a bit of bling with Rhinestones!

Item No. 122890 Perfectly Penned wood $16.95 OR
Item No. 122892 Perfectly Penned clear $12.95
Item No. 122352 Timeless Portrait Designer Series Paper $10.95
Item No. 121878 First Edition Specialty Designer Series Paper $12.95

Oktoberfest Retreat

Once a year, our team of Heartfelt Stampers holds a weekend retreat.  We rent a lodge on Canandaigua Lake in the Finger Lakes area of New York State and meet to relax, enjoy getting to know our team members better, eat wonderful food, laugh and of course stamp!  I took a few pictures, but once the fun begins, I seem to forget about my camera!

This year was a circus theme to take advantage of Stampin' Up!'s Big Top product suite.  We had a huge kitchen to work with, and everyone contributed food for the weekend.  Needless to say, we ate like queens!

We had an authentic carnival popcorn popper with popcorn available all weekend, plus snacks like animal crackers and peanuts.

One section of the lodge is reserved for eating.  Brightly colored tablecloths and cute pinwheel centerpieces fit right in!

Here's a close-up of the centerpieces using Stampin' Up! ribbon, designer paper, card stock and buttons!

I'll continue to show you Oktoberfest pillow gifts and projects in the days to come! 

Don't Forget!

How About a FREE Starter Kit!

How about a FREE Stampin' Up! Starter Kit to brighten your day!

I had the pleasure of attending Stampin' Up!'s Annual Leadership Conference in Nashville this past week and was given a HUGE blessing just for being there — the ability to give out ONE FREE Starter Kit to ONE of my customers!

I'm over the moon with this opportunity… it's just too cool! I believe in the Stampin' Up! opportunity SO much that I feel the Starter Kit is a gift all by itself – $349 worth of product for $175, a 20% discount, a 30% discount on your first order, an exclusive monthly magazine sent directly to your home, access to exclusive web sites, an invitation to attend exclusive events, the ability to make some extra money doing something you love…I could go on! The Stampin' Up! Starter Kit is an amazing gift at its $175 pricing.

BUT….. to be able to give one of these kits away for FREE? What an AMAZING gift this is going to be for one lucky individual!

I want EVERYONE to have the opportunity to be able to receive this fabulous gift – so I've decided to hold a drawing!

If you are willing to commit to holding 2 workshops within your first 90 days (that's less than 1 a month!) then e-mail me to let me know, and I will enter you into my drawing to win a FREE Stampin' Up! Starter Kit!

I will draw the name of the lucky person on Thursday at Noonthe Starter Kit order form must be mailed in and postmarked by Friday to qualify.

I hope you'll enter!  And best of luck!

Filled With Love card sample

We have such a good time at our monthly Heartfelt Stampers Team Times!  One especially fun part of the evening is when one of the girls on the team leads a "workshopable" make and take  card for us all to create.  Catherine Power led our card this month, and I just had to share it with you!  I loved how Catherine shows the fun technique of masking the hearts while keeping her card quick and easy for a workshop setting.  The stamp set we used is Filled with Love – part of the fabulous special bundle offer that is over on January 24th!  Click HERE to read more about this promotion.

Welcome to my new Team Members

I had the privilege of welcoming 12 new members to my From the Heart Stampers Team of Stampin' Up! demonstrators during the month of November!  Here's a special "welcome to the team" card I made each of them. I was going for a dressy look with the Basic Black and Sahara Sand color scheme, using the Neutrals Patterns Designer Series Paper Stack for the pretty background.  The stamp is the Statement of the Heart – wonderful words with which to begin your new business!  I added Raven 1/2" Lace Trim — it's definitely not just for Halloween — and three Jewels Basic Rhinestones to finish off the classic look.

Item No. 117157 Neutrals Patterns Designer Series Paper Stack $19.95
Item No. 120988 Raven 1/2" Lace Trim $5.95

Congrats to Judy

Here's a card to congratulate Judy on her first recruit!  I love the Fall color scheme but just a little on the softer side!  I've begun my card with Crumb Cake card stock (formerly known as Kraft) which has become my new favorite neutral!  I've been using it like crazy lately.  Some Peach Parfait Designer Series Paper and 1/2" Stitched-Poly Ribbon decorate the lower half of the card and Soft Suede Textured card stock the upper portion.  I punched the star from Pear Pizzazz card stock using the Extra Large Star Punch, then ran it through the Big Shot using the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  The sentiment is stamped in Early Espresso Classic Ink with Word Play – oh, what a great stamp set – and punched out using the 1-3/4" Circle Punch.  More In Color Designer Series Paper in Pear Pizzazz adds a backdrop for the sentiment.  Three Early Espresso Brads from the Neutrals Brads are perfectly lined up using the Mat Pack and Paper-Piercing Tool.

Item No. 119264 Peach Parfait 1/2" Stitched-Poly Ribbon $8.95
Item No. 121028 In Color Designer Series Paper Pack – Level 1 hostess gift
Item No. 119736 Neutrals Brads (120) $6.95
Item No. 119875 Extra Large Star Punch $16.95

Welcome, Margaret!

This card was created to welcome Margaret Cruz of Taneytown, MD to our From The Heart Stampers Team!   I love using the Statement of the Heart from Stampin' Up! to welcome each new team member.  But you could use this layout for any card making, too.  Simply place the image you want to work with on the Whisper White card stock.  Here I've used Crumb Cake to begin my card, then layered on Whisper White.  Create this fun scallop border by punching circles with any size Stampin' Up! circle punch.  Use Grid Paper to line them up evenly and adhere to the back of your card stock with only 1/2 the circle showing.  In this card, I used Early Espresso card stock with a layer of Peach Parfait Designer Series Paper on top.  A couple of tags using Pear Pizzazz 1/2" Stitched-Poly Ribbon adds interest, as well as three Gold Brads in the corner.  Line these brads up perfectly using the Mat Pack and Paper-Piercing Tool.

Item No. 102787 Grid Paper (100) $9.95
Item No. 104337 Gold Brads (200) $6.95
Item No. 105826 Mat Pack $9.95
Item No. 116631 Paper Piercing Tool $3.50
Item No. 119265 Pear Pizzazz 1/2" Stitched-Poly Ribbon $8.95
Item No. 121028 In Color Designer Series Paper Pack – Level 1 Hostess gift free with $150 order

Welcome, Judy!

A big From the Heart Stampers welcome to Judy Valentine from Westminster, Maryland, who joined our Stampin' Up! team this month!  Judy is already an avid stamper and brings over 6 years of experience to our team.  It's wonderful to have such a creative lady be a part of our Stampin' Up! family.  I created this card especially to welcome Judy.  I used a card base of Baja Breeze and paired it with Daffodil Delight and Poppy Parade.  The main image is the Stampin' Up! Statement of the Heart and the Eyelet Border Punch adds some nice interest to the bottom of the Poppy Parade border.  I decorated with some flowers from Eastern Blooms in Poppy Parade with Daffodil Delight accents.  A sliver of Chocolate Chip card stock acts as "thread" through the button from Brights Designer Buttons, and I've added a brad from the Brights Brads as well, then popped up the smaller flower with Dimensionals and curled the petals of the larger flower using a Bone Folder

Item No. 111626 Eastern Blooms $21.95
Item No. 119761 Daffodil Delight 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon $6.95
Item No. 119747 Brights Designer Buttons $8.95
Item No. 119740 Brights Brads $6.95
Item No. 119853 Eyelet Border Punch $15.95

We had our final Stampin' Summer Bash, and I sold lots of my retired stamp sets and accessories.  But there's still a great deal of wonderful discounted products available!
