OnStage Gifts

Su gnome #lolasgnomes

The girls that went to OnStage got a little goodie from me for attending.  I found this cute Love What You Do. Do What You Love sign. ( I always by stuff with this saying on it) and I had my friend Lola's Gnomes make them each a little SU! gnome. Thanks Lola! #lolasgnomes We all did not go to the same event, so I will have to see if I can get them to take their pictures with theirs.

I am $823.00 away from a sales milestone of $800K, every day I go and see how close I am. I just missed it to be recognized at the April OnStage.  So if you need anything let me know.

Pre-order Your 2019-2020 Catalog Now

2019-2020 annual catalog

I can not believe it is that time of year again, the new catalog is around the corner. As a Demonstrator one of the perks is getting it early, (look how beautiful that cover is) and I also got to pre-order some fun new things from OnStage last week!
May 1, Demonstrators will be able to order even more! Since I have been pulling retired stuff my cupboards are getting bare...time to fill them up with new stuff!
I would love to have you join my team and you too can do like I did and get your hands on yummy goodness early.

Did you know that you can pick brand new stuff in your starter kit?  Yep you can pick pre-order it!!  For $99.00 and tax (Stampin' Up! pays the shipping...more savings for you), you can pick $125.00 worth of goodies.

Ok but you say "I don't really want to be a Demonstrator right now, I prefer to just order from you and get that amazing customer service you always give, I just want the catalog."

No worries...if you are one of my Virtual Stamp Club Members, one of my Paper Pumpkin Pals or one of my regular customers and you have ordered at least $50.00 since November 2018 (there is still time!) I will send you a catalog free. Please make sure to log into your account and correct your mailing address if necessary. If you have checked the no contact box in the past this is the perfect time to uncheck that so that I can send you a catalog if you earned one...otherwise I don't know who you are. If you are not sure, log in and double check ok? I have a bunch of no contact one of them you?

If you are not a regular customer and you do not have a Demonstrator but you would like a catalog, please let me know by April 28 (any later and the postage will go up to $7.35).  The cost of mailing the catalog is $5.00 when I get them ordered by April 28, the catalog is free and my gift to you, I just need to recoop the postage.  I will send you a paypal link for the $5.00, and I will also send you a coupon for $5.00 off your first order of $50.00 or more so you will get your postage money back. Cool eh? 

(Please note I can only mail catalogs within the US, thanks for understanding.)

Catalogs will be mailed around the middle of May.  You can begin ordering from it on June 4.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at or 602-339-2776.

Bonnie & Clyde

Storage by stampin up ink pads

So we got back last night from San Antonio and we had so much fun at OnStage, I will share some pics another day, but today I had some errands and I wanted to get my ink pads on the counter and off the table, this is where my punches sat so Jeff will hang up my punches now. Don't they look so amazing there?

Storage by stampin up watercolor pencils

I put my watercolor pencils beside the Stampin' Write marker beside the pad...eek! Love!!

So on the way home from San Antonio we went to McDonalds, it took forever to get to order and get our food (note to self: don't go to McDonalds attached to a gas station). Anyway we finally got the food and then Jeff asked about the hash browns, so the girl gave them. So then we were eating and I said oh they gave two hash browns and Jeff was like didn't you order one? and I said no. Then I looked at the receipt and they did not charge for meals so neither of us should have got one...I said we should take them back and pay and Jeff said we waited long enough, we earned them, so we didn't. I felt like Bonnie and Clyde as we ate our hash browns.

So here is a TMI post...I have to get a hysterectomy on the 6th so today I started pulling retired stuff out cause I won't be able to be lifting stuff for 6 weeks after. This time of year is always fun as I get excited for the new stuff and sad at the same time as some of my faves are leaving. My shelf always looks so bare...but then my new stuff comes and fills it back up! At least with the new cling stamps I will have more room on the shelf.

One thing that I check for every year when we get a new catalog is if Lovely as a Tree is still around...and...are you sitting down? It is retiring...OMG! Now in case you are one of the people that don't have this set, please order it right away.

While I am gone I always have double eggs so you can earn stamps faster!! Have fun shopping!!

Here's the details:

I hope you are enjoying my Country Dozen Rewards.  I want to thank everyone who has participated so far and I hope you are enjoying your free stamps, make sure to keep track of your orders as well as the order dates, so your eggs don't expire.

After you have earned a Dozen (12) eggs you can pick product valued up to $35.00 as a Thank You from me.
I will verify the dates when you turn your reward sheet in so make sure to mark your sheet accordingly and write double points with the dates!
Here is the flyer so you can print it out and keep track.  It also explains all the other details about the rewards program.

The ordering system will ask you for your choices before you close the order.
Here is the link to make it easier:

Love this part!!Did you know that you can apply your Stampin' Rewards to the starter kit?
