I hope you are enjoying our winter holidays themed Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe are participating so we have a wide array of fun projects to share with you! You may have arrived from Annette McMillan’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

Well, you can see from my blog post description that I had planned to use Snowman Season products. But I had this stamp-a-stackable reindeer design ready. So here is the card you can stamp a lot of!

That is all for today.

Oh and I have crossed 3 items off my to do list today.

If you follow along my business facebook page, you would have seen the to do list this morning. Working on item number 4 and found the Get Creative+Have Fun+Repeat image on my desktop. Catch you tomorrow for some spooky Halloween fun!

My family helped me prepare greeting card making kits that were shared at 5 different senior living communities. Thrivent funded some of the supplies, we donated our time.

Cheryl got a lesson on using Tricia’s cutter which made cutting cardstock quick.


Mom used the Stamparatus to stamp all the images to kept them perfectly aligned on the paper. Helpful for the sentiment verses. Debbi used the scoring board to score all the cardstock while I cut the burlap ribbons.IMG_0015

We prepared about 150 kits in a few short hours! Thanks for your help reducing the kit prep time. Thanks to Thrivent for providing the action team grant!

Would you like to help on the next action team? Contact me for the next kit prep date or to coordinate your own paper crafting program.
