New Year - New Calendar!

So I've seen a lot of people posting their new calendars for 2018 and I thought I've better share mine before it's getting close to 2019 lol!  Below are examples of the easel calendars I made for my downline and club members.  They are pretty straight forward - easel cards with the calendar - and the pots of brushes.
But - I made over 60 of these, and let me tell you - fussy cutting those images, and then fussy cutting the DSP to go on the pot - that was some chore.  And I love to fussy cut.  But even for me - with the holidays - it was a little much.
Fortunately - I love how they turned out!
You can see below how the easel stands against the calendar frame.
Here's another color - had to switch the colors up to give me some change in what I was doing.
Hope you liked them!  If you want one next year  - just join my TEAM or one of my CLUBS.  Full details on each at the top of the page!  ~Maureen

2nd best Sale-a-bration deal - Paper Pumpkin

Paper Pumpkin is Stampin' Up!'s monthly craft kit that comes right to your mailbox.  Projects vary from cards, to home decor, to gift packaging.  Each month is a fun, creative surprise package!  Kits are complete (except for scissors) and each kit contains an exclusive photo-polymer stamp kit that cannot be purchased outside Paper Pumpkin.  Your first month will include an acrylic block.  If you are on vacation or just overwhelmed any given month, you can go online and bump your subscription package for the month and it will resume the next - this is really a nice perk.  If you are a current PP subscriber - this new subscription (once you activate) will just pick up at the end of your current one.  But see below why this is such a great deal right now!
During Sale-a-bration with a 12 month Paper Pumpkin subscription you are able to select up to 4 FREE gifts from the Sale-a-bration brochure (4 level 1’s or 2 level 2’s) and you receive $20 host dollars to use on product of your choice.  Be sure to put in your customer order through my website - - but, because the order will be over $150 and you want to get those host dollars - do NOT use a hostess code for this order.

BUT - it could be A LOT better – simply add $35 in product to the subscription and now you get up to 5 Sale-a-bration items (mix and match level 1 and 2) and you receive $45 host dollars. Those host dollars cover the additional $35.

Or - the BEST, remember I said this was the 2nd best deal – you save at least 20% on a paper pumpkin subscriptions as a demonstrator - while earning perks on the full retail value. In addition paper pumpkin subscriptions count towards sales minimums (at full retail value).   So - what are you waiting for - contact me to find out more about how to sign up as a Crazy Stamping Lady and get all the perks my TEAM gets!
So - here is one of the adorable kits I finished up just this week - it was 8 card - 4 each of two designs.  And you cannot see it here - but the white behind the layers is our beautiful Dazzling Diamonds glitter paper - making these cards SPARKLE!!!  So pretty!
Looking forward to hearing from you!!! ~Maureen

Let the Good Times Roll

Today I'm posting some information from Stampin' Up! on this bundle - Let the Good Times Roll.  It is really, really adorable - but from what I hear - a bit of a pain to make it work.  I had one customer so frustrated she wanted to send it all back.  But for great adorability - sometimes it's worth the extra effort.  Just look at what you can create!
If you'd like to get this bundle I suggest that you take a few minutes and check out the video from Stampin' Up!  It will show you how this can come together with some helpful tips. You can check it out  below -
If this is up  your alley - be sure to send me a picture of what you create -  would love to see it.  ~Maureen

Picture Perfect Birthday Class

So my first class of the New Year was to make these eight adorable birthday card notecards using the Picture Perfect Suite from the catalog.  This DSP and set make it so easy to put together a bunch of great cards in no time at all.  I have a template in my free inspiration sheet tab above - or just click HERE.
Below are each of the cards close up - each has a different accessory and different image from the DSP - but all are stinkin' cute!

This class was full - and I  have more interest - so thinking about doing an encore class.  In the meantime I'd challenge to get a package of notecards, some cardstock and dsp and a few embelishments and come up with a stack of cards of your own.  You'll feel so good having that stash ready to go.  See you soon!  ~Maureen

Lovely Wishes!

Today I'm sharing my December TEAM cards made with the new set Lovely Wishes from the Occasions catalog.  If you don't have your new Occasions catalog and Sale-a-bration catalog - let me know and I'll get one right out to you.   I was fortunate to get this set at our last Onstage Convention event in November - and I simply love it.   I'm a bit of a leaf, curves and flower gal - and this set fits the bill in all those categories - plus it has some delightful sentiments.
Here's the card close up - I just two step stamped the flowers and leaves - then added a couple little hearts to carry the design around the sentiment.  As you can see all my layers are offset to the left - just to give the card a bit of character.
Finally - and I know it's hard to see - I added three of the little glitter and clear epoxy shapes from the Occasions catty - they are just adorable  - round and raindrop shapes - 1/2 clear and 1/2 with glitter - they just reminded me of little dewdrops!
Congrats to my TEAM on all their great accomplishments - they are an amazing group of women!  If you'd like to join my TEAM of Crazy Stamping Ladies - you can see what it's all about HERE plus, right now during Sale-A-Bration you can get two additional sets of your choice in your starter kit!!!  Planning to order - please go to my website HERE choose SHOP NOW and be sure to enter the hostess code below before finalizing you order. It's Sale-a-bration time - so for every $50 you spend you can pick a FREE item from the current SAB catty -
