Happy Weekend! I hope you are all having a great one! I’m excited to spend the day with my daughter in law Jacky! She is one of my favorite people and one of the sweetest, kindest people you could ever meet! This is a picture of Jacky and my daughter Caitlyn from this past fall. Two of the most beautiful women I know!
Anyway….see what happens when I start talking about our kids? lol.
Today I am going to share with you a card I made using the Shark Frenzy stamp set! This adorable set is new in the January to June mini catalog! Now if you have small children in your life you are sure to know this song! I paired it up with a few items from the Whale of a Time Suite in the Annual Catalog! As always, just click the links below to be directed to my online store!
I should note, there are dies that coordinate with the stamp set..but I actually do not have them yet. And my fussy cutting needs work! LOL.
Today I want to share with you the New Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine! You all know how much I love the big boss machine! But you guys this one is sooo cute and compact! It’s so nice to have it right on my workspace ready to use within an arm’s reach….without taking up a huge amount of space! It’s going to be fabulous to take when I go to my retreats or crafting with friends! It comes with all of the same plates as the standard size machine (just smaller) and you will see in the catalogs now a little symbol that tells you what embossing folders are made for it!
I posted my recent Facebook live to my YouTube Channel so you can see it up close and how it compares size wise to the larger counterpart.
Cost is $60 and if you order it before February 28th you would be entitled to a stamp set or DSP from the Sale-A-Bration catalog!! Better yet…add it to a Starter kit and get Free Shipping on it!
My family LOVES ice cream! We have a favorite locally owned shop (Yay for ICKI STICKI!!) that we walk to often. Walking burns off all the calories right? lol. When I saw the Sweet Ice Cream Suite I knew I had to have it all! And Surprise…I won the stamp set at our anuual OnStage event in November!
Check out all of the items in this suite! For $56 you get all of it!! AND…remember it’s Sale-A-Bration so you can also then choose a FREE stamp set or Designer Series Paper pack on top of it!
Today I am sharing the first card I made with the bundle, pairing it up with a sheet from the Fine Art Floral DSP pack. Watch in coming weeks (or likely days!) for more projects!
I love how pretty the DSP is in the January to June Catalog. I know you will as well!
The happiest time of the year for Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators and Customers is Sale-A-Bration! From now until February 28th every time you order $50 or more (before tax and shipping) you can choose a FREE stamp set or Designer Series Paper Pack! Order $100 choose 2 items! AND it’s the best time to join the SU family because there are even more FREE items in your new Starter Kit!
I’ll be sharing Sale-A-Bration projects for the next two months here as well as on my Facebook Page so definitely keep an eye out for those!
Today’s card features the Free Paper Blooms Designer Series paper on page 3 of the SAB catalog. It is 12 sheets of 12 x 12 paper (2 each of 6 designs) and it is absolutely stunning!

I am soo excited to share this with you guys! You all have heard me talk about how supportive my husband John has been. Whether it’s helping run the Stamp and Emboss machine for swaps, or video taping my lives, or traveling across the country and attending my Stampin Up! ® events with me…he’s been my biggest cheerleader. Today I was finishing up our family Christmas cards and talking about how i wanted to share it on my FB live tonight, but because I was using a retired die (gasp) I didn’t want to. It’s not that there are rules or anything, but I like to share with you products you can actually purchase – or at least that there is something similar available.
He sat down at the table and starting playing around with the scraps and pieces I had lying there. Then started looking at dies and had me cut out a few things…and he came up with this! I’m going to have to get him his own watermark!
The supplies are listed below: Remember the Nativity and Joy dies are retiring on Jan 5th so if you love them as much as I do you will want to order them now! http://www.jena.stampinup.net
Join me tonight at 8:30pm CST for a Facebook live where we will create this card! I have about 9 hours to convince HIM to do the live! Wish me luck!

I’m so excited today Friends! Today is the start of the 2020 Stampin Up! OnStage Event! Slightly bittersweet, true…as we were supposed to be in Salt Lake City with 2500 of my closest demonstrator friends…but we will make do! Tonight I will be virtually recognized for my hard work in sales, leadership and team building. Tomorrow and Saturday I’ll be hanging out with a couple of local friends to watch the entire event online. We will still have make and takes and fellowship and learn new business tips and stampin techniques…and SEE THE JANUARY TO JUNE AND SALE-A-BRATION CATALOGS!!! Who wouldn’t be excited for that? So..make sure you are on my mailing list! email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are not and want to be!
I’ll be offering and ordering special starting today and ending Sunday at midnight. Everyone who places an order will receive from me, a set of the Holiday Basic Rhinestones! And November’s ordering special is 5 free handcrafted holiday cards to keep for yourself..or send this season! Order between now and midnight and get both!
Okay…Finally on to today’s Christmas Card! Today I am sharing a sweet and easy card using the super pretty Snowflake Splendor DSP. It’s a super easy layout and would be perfect for mass producing. You can change out the DSP and the ribbon even.
We have made it half way through the week! This week is dragging so badly for me! Before Covid…I was scheduled to be in Salt Lake City this week! Stampin Up! holds an annual convention each year at a different location. Typically there is one large event that lasts 3-4 days and then multiple single days spread out across the country. Historically they alternate every other year the large event is in the US. Two years ago I traveled to Orlando for the large event with a great group of friends. Last year some of those same friends..and my husband traveled with me to Lansing MI for the single day event.
This year it was to be held in SLC, which is where the SU! headquarters are located. Because my other passion is family history…we were flying out a few days early to spend some time at the Family History Library there as well.
Like so many other amazing events this year, Stampin Up moved our convention to the virtual platform. While we are all disappointed, my friends and I decided to make the best of it and 4 of us will be getting together this weekend to enjoy the virtual festivities together! So…I’m looking forward to the weekend! 🙂
But first…today I want to share with you a quick and easy project using a limited edition stamp set! The Curvy Celebrations bundle was released yesterday! It is a super trendy and cute stamp set and dies bundle that will be available in the January to June catalog. For Christmas however…they have also released a second stamp set and set of Designer Series papers! These will only be available November and December so if you love them order them now!
For this project i used the Curvy Dies and the Curvy Christmas stamp set! I love how the gold foil looks after being run through the Stampin Cut and Emboss machine with these dies! I started with a sheet of thick Whisper White cardstock for my base. I mounted the gold foil on whisper white and then on a 5.25 x 4 sheet of Basic Black card stock. I used my Stamparatus to line up the greeting just right. I also used the Stitched Stars dies for the tiny stars by my greeting. Topped it off with a piece of the Trimming the Town ribbon pack and you have a super elegant..but super easy holiday card!
I live in Mount Horeb Wi which claims to be the Troll Capitol of the World! Although there is definitely a difference between Gnomes and Trolls, I knew I had to have this set as soon as I saw it! Here I paired it up with the Trimming the Town DSP and I love how it turned out!
Today I am sharing a very simple card that I made for a recent demonstrator swap. I absolutely love the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Papers! This card really shows just how beautiful they are and it would be a simple card to reproduce in mass quantities!
