What is a card stock share?
A Card Stock Share is a sampling of card stock from Stampin’ Up!  It allows you to see, feel and use the card stock before buying the full packs of your favorites!  When you reserve a card stock share with me, I will order all of card stock, cut it up, package it, label it, and ship it to you so that you have a sampling of all of the card stock listed above!

The clock is ticking on THREE Stampin’ Up! opportunities

Around this time, for years, Stampin’ Up! has its biggest annual promotion and it is called Sale-A-Bration or SAB. SAB has three parts which, to my ears, sounds like “something for everyone.” It ends March 31. Here are the three parts with a brief description:

  1. For every $50 in product you put in your shopping cart, you may choose 1 absolutely FREE item out of a specially designed set of products and, just announced, a few regular products out of a current catalog. Some items are earned free with a minimum $100 order. You choose. All you have to do to get something free is make sure you have $50 of product in your cart.
  2. If you go for the gusto and fill your cart with $250 or more, then you get a bonus $25 in more free product that is 100% your choice. That is a bonus to the host rewards you’d already qualify for. For example, a $250 order earns 10% more free ($25) so when you add the bonus that ends March 31, that’d be $50!
  3. Instead of being a shopper, the 3rd option is to be a happier shopper by buying the Starter Kit and the 20% product discount that begins after you buy it. The Starter Kit is $99+ tax. It ships FREE. You put $125 (not a penny more) of absolutely anything you want in your cart PLUS, through March 31, you add ANY 2 stamp sets of your choice. Those sets could be to about a $101 value. No risk. No parties. No strings.

Welcome to my new and improved Stampin’ Up! blog!

I am absolutely thrilled to be blogging again thanks to the genius of husband-wife web designer team Brian and Nicole Watt of Integrant Services. They are so amazingly popular that I was on a 6-month waiting list then I had to postpone while we were doing a bunch of work inside our house (which is winding down this week for now). Brian and Nicole are masters and I highly recommend them for your web design services particularly if you are a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.

We worked on my new logo design a lot. What does a tree have to do with stamping? Well, not sure but it is a symbol that I have always gravitated towards as a symbol of family, life, growth and stability. It weathers storms and blossoms with leaves when it’s warm. It’s such an amazing image for so many reasons.

“Stella” means star so there’s no getting around integrating some stars here or there. Don’t you love what Nicole did for me for a logo?

I plan to do my best to build a fresh routine of blogging. If you want to take this ride with me, feel free to subscribe (right column) and you’ll know when I’ve posted. I guesstimate that my blog will be over 90% Stampin’ Up! with 10% of life and humanity thrown in. No politics or religion. Just Stampin’ Up! and maybe some snippets of my world.

If you are reading this whether you are a Demonstrator on my team, not on my team, a customer or prospective customer, please know that I love what I do and I vow to share as much as I can to keep us both motivated to just stamp!

Stampin’ Up! introduces new product “This and That” AND is giving away free trips to San Diego!

Start with this ONE-MINUTE video so you can visualize what I'm about to talk about


  • We're introducing the line with these five products, but we'll be adding more This and That stuff as time goes on.
  • Bundle Dates : March 23-April 30  (note: the items that come in the bundle will be available in the new catalog June 1, but we're only offering the discounted bundled until April 30).
  • You can get as many This and That products or bundles as you want.
  • You can buy the This and That products separately. But why would you do that when you can get all five together and save 15 percent? 
  • Did your spidey eyes see that two of our In Colors (Calypso Coral and Pool Party) are included in the products? Your eyes were right. You'll just have to check out the catalog in June to see what that's all about.
