ISO Senior Living Sponsors

2 19bh2-001

Hello Super Awesome Stampers!

I visit senior living communities during the first and second weeks of the month. Residents gather in the activity room. I distribute greeting card making kits along with punched shapes and bows already attached to glue dots. We chat while assembling the cards. Sometimes we use the glitter glimmer sheets which is always a hit!

Sessions are more like art therapy. I talk about the fun color names and punches used.  The gorgeous ribbons provide visual and touch sensory experiences. I travel with assorted greetings and an ink pad so we can customize all occasion cards to the sentiment the resident wishes. The butterflies shown in the photo above will be featured in the May sessions. Bunnies are on the April designs.

I visit all care levels: independent, assisted and memory care communities. If I am able to speak to an activity director on the phone and secure a session commitment, I am usually booked for return sessions. Not everyone that is interested in a session is able to book one due to limited budget. Would you like to sponsor a session at a community in your area or where a family member or friend lives? Just let me know where you would like me to visit. I’ll call the activity director to offer a sponsored session. Sponsorship is easy with one simple cash or check donation from you.

I visit communities in the Durand, Eau Claire and Menomonie areas during the first week of the month. I’ll be criss crossing the Madison area and surrounding burbs during the second week of the month. I travel within an hour’s time from these areas and also visit communities along the interstate heading north of Madison on my trip up to Durand.

The residents really appreciate me visiting and I enjoy visiting the residents. The senior living sessions have been a part of my business for over 5 years. So I am experienced with leading the sessions and working with resident abilities or limitations.

Thank you for considering to sponsor a session. Please contact me if you or your company would like to sponsor a session. Have a super awesome day!

Upcoming life event to prepare paper crafts for?

Hello Super Awesome Stampers!

Birthdays, anniversaries, retirements, baby showers and bridal parties need a little extra something that paper crafting provides to make the celebration extra special and memorable. A party favor wrap or tag, invitations and thank you notes hand stamped with the perfect coordinating color and image and party decor are all items that can be created using on trend Stampin’ Up! products.

Whether you have a lot to create or just a few, you can enjoy a stamping discount on all your purchases when you are a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator on my team. What defines you as a demonstrator may change over time and as your interests shift. That’s ok. I’ll be here to help you along your stamp journey as your needs change whether you just want to add to your stamping stash or want to share stamping with others.

If buying at a discount appeals to you, then Sale-a-bration season is the best time to sign up! You pick up to $175 of products which will only cost you $99 plus tax! The shipping is free on the starter kit for an additional $17.50 in savings! The second welcome kit option includes a Craft and Carry tote with enough space and pockets to pack for an afternoon of crafting away from your home hub. The second option is $129 with free shipping too!

Here is the tote…

I am looking for at least one person to join my team by February 28th which will help me maintain my title. So if you are considering the opportunity to purchase at a discount, please do so by February 28th! Sign up is processed online through this link.

Ink, Stamp and Share Sale-a-bration 2019

Welcome to our Ink and Share Blog Hop featuring projects designed by fellow Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators and me. This month, we are featuring projects created using Sale-a-bration 2019 products. If you are hopping around, you have arrived from     Tricia Butt’s blog and her fabulous project.

I decided to do a custom fold over revealing the sentiment and sequin. Just fold back once, bone fold along the edge, then fold back to create a flap for the bow. See the piece hanging off the end along the left side? Fold that around the card and secure with a glue dot.

All the supplies used…interchange the flower adhesive backed sequins with the circle sequins. They are an easy embellishment to use! Use the paper piercing tool to position the sequins on your project.

Stamping on a budget solution for you

Hello Super Awesome Stampers!

Long time ago my Mom and my sister Tricia were introduced to stamping and Stampin’ Up! We quickly joined the followers because of the coordinating papers, inks and embellishments delivered right to our front door. We collected stamp sets along the way too. I still have many of my favorites waiting to be used on scrapbook pages.

We supported other demonstrators in the beginning. Eventually I decided to start enjoying a discount on my purchases (so I could buy more stamps with the same amount of cash!) and signed up to be a demonstrator 15 years ago. Tricia signed up to be a demonstrator a few years ago. Our cousin signed up during this Sale-a-bration season. How exciting!

Now as you are looking at your stamping shopping list, would you like to buy more items for the same amount of cash? You can! Sale-a-bration season is the best time to sign up! You pick up to $175 of products which will only cost you $99 plus tax! The shipping is free on the starter kit for an additional $17.50 in savings! The second welcome kit option includes a Craft and Carry tote with enough space and pockets to pack for an afternoon of crafting away from your home hub. The second option is $129 with free shipping too!

Here is the tote…

I am looking for at least one person to join my team by February 28th which will help me maintain my title. So if you are considering the opportunity to purchase at a discount, please do so by February 28th! Sign up is processed online through this link. Make sure my name is in the upper right hand corner so you are signing up to be on my team.

If you have been on my team before or someone else’s team and are no longer an active demonstrator, you are welcome to sign up again with me. We are happy to have you back!

I look forward to sharing all things stamping with you!

Life’s too short to say No to Cake!

Life’s too short to say No to Cake! I agree! A slice from Carl’s Cakes makes the day better. I love the mocha flavor. Mom and I get a cake at every chance. I’ll be bringing apricot hazelnut to celebrate her birthday the next time I visit.

I designed the flirty flamingo greeting card version above to share at the February Card Buffet. My sister baked a cake for her husband so I designed the balmy blue and silver foil version and got it in the mail quick!

Would you like to stamp a few of these cards at the Card Buffet? The session is Thursday, February 21st, 9:30am. Full details are in this blog post.

Please click the contact button to RSVP so I will prepare kits for you. I’ll reply back with confirmation that I received your RSVP with a few more details.

Hope to stamp with you on Thursday!
