Okay so I love piercing to get the look of stitching so this looks amazing!  I love how stitches are now a classic trend, and they illustrate the quality, precision, and extra care taken when creating a piece!  Giving a stitched gift shows just how much you value that relationship.

Now Stampin' Up! is offering us a great opportunity to purchase Stitched Shapes Framelits ahead of their official release in the 2017-2018 annual catalog!!!!  And to save 25% off coordinating stamp sets until November 30th!!   With Stitched Shapes Framelits you can make paper stitches in seconds, turning any project into one that is stitched from the heart.

Don't you just love the look!

World Card Making Day

Yay!  I love getting cards in the mail, don't you?  Let's jump on board and send out a card today!  It's a celebration and what better way to celebrate than with a sale or two!!!  First we have a selection of card making supplies on sale for 5 days only to celebrate this event and then a paper sale for the month!  Oh me, oh my!  Also I have a card class that you may be interested in too!

I hear all the time that our favourite thing to do with Designer Series Paper, aka pattern paper, is to .....keep it!  Yes it seems collecting this paper since it is so beautiful and pretty seems to be the number one pasttime with it!  Okay, so I might be making fun of this a little, but don't you have a sheet or two, or maybe a dozen, or 100 sheets (don't tell on me) that you have tucked away and just can not bring yourself to use it.  I fully admit that I have a stash that I seem to thing I "must have" that I ponder once in a while as to what I am "saving" it for, but the thought is only there momentarily and then I carry on.  So all joking and teasing aside, I love Designer Series Pattern and I do actually use it regularly and you can ask my downline and friends as many times I am begging for more of a pattern as I have used it in class and need more!  So I figured I would share this month some of my cards that utilize our beautiful Designer Series Papers, as it actually is very easy to use it and make beautiful cards that make that beautiful paper turn into something even more incredible that you can share and admire!

Isn't the Foxy Friends stamp set incredible!  Are you finding yourself seeing fox merchandise everywhere?  I am!  Too cute!  This is a quick and easy card using Designer Series Paper as a background, yes my favourite way to use it, and then a quick stamp and more cardstock and viola, a card!  Fast foxy and fantastic!

So from October 1 through 31 , you can buy three packages of Designer Series Paper and get one free! This sale includes Designer Series Paper from both the annual catalog and the recently released holiday catalog (not including Specialty Designer Series Paper or Designer Series Paper Stacks)!

Now to celebrate with you, I want to offer you a deal on my upcoming card class Designer Tin of Cards Class.  If you sign up between Oct 1-5, I will offer you 25% off the class so it will be only $33!
Make sure to sign up today!

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about these specials.

2016 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue has arrived!

Have you heard the news?  Our new Holiday Catalogue is arriving to demonstrator's doorsteps!  This is one of the many perks of being a demonstrator, one that I love, that I can view and preorder goodies from the next catalogue!  I'm not saying that I have to be first, as this is not why I love it, I love it as this gives me time to design and create before the catalogue is officially launched but I will admit, it is sort of like Christmas when you get to be one of the first to try to new products!!  I am horrible at keeping secrets, especially when the secret is as exciting as this catalogue!  So my apologies that I might be a spoiler alert here for some of you, but I am sharing my preorder here with you in a video as I could keep all this excitement to myself and not share these awesome exciting and very merry holiday products with you!  So grab your coffee (or your preferred drink) and let's see what's new!

A Demonstrator Like Me – Sheri Pearson

I am without words to express how amazing it felt to have a story in the Stampin' Up! Canada Newsletter about me and my passion to this amazing company. Below is the excerpt written by my friend, Laurie LaRose, a demonstrator in Alberta

Sheri Pearson lives in Nanaimo on Vancouver Island, BC. Sheri grew up on the island and can imagine no better place to live. With great weather year round and so much nature just outside their door, her family takes advantage of all the beauty, getting outside and enjoying it. There are parks, playgrounds, trails to explore and a whole lot of ocean.
Sheri says being a Mom is first for her. Years ago, she started a bookkeeping business to be able to be at home and be that mom. Soon after, she became a single mom, raising her daughter and son and building that business to support her family. A few years ago, she met the man of her dreams and his daughter. They rounded out their family with the birth of their little boy.
 Sheri has been a demonstrator for just about 4 years. She is a Silver Elite and has personal career sales of over $100,000.
 Sheri had been first introduced to Stampin’Up! years ago, while she was single, by a friend who took her to a couple classes to get her out of the house, she enjoyed the classes but had little time to explore the hobby. She was invited out to classes again after she had the new baby, it was a lovely break. She loved making cards and the products. She didn’t own a single stamp, but her fiancĂ©, Jeff, saw how happy it made her, he told her she should go for it and sign up to become a demonstrator. She met up with a few friends to stamp together and share ideas. When they moved into a new home with a formal dining room, Jeff encouraged Sheri to turn it into a studio for a place to escape to for a bit of “me time”. An idea that she had given up on long ago. Seeing how happy it made her and believing she had real talent, Jeff encouraged her to begin teaching and doing classes in the studio.
 By nature, Sheri is a shy person. This was the hardest thing she’d ever done. She started a club and began teaching classes and sharing ideas and techniques. She used much of the same work ethic she had used to build her successful bookkeeping business, to build her Stampin’Up! business. She held more classes and made sales. Without knowing the business plan and with no upline help (her upline had quit shortly after she signed up) she had no idea she was on track for Rising Star. Stampin’Up! contacted her and assigned her a Business Advisor to help her make plans, set and reach the goal of Rising Star in those first 18 months. 
She does bookkeeping part time now with Stampin’Up! replacing much of that income. She does an average of 9 events a month. Her clubs and classes include; Monthly Hostess Club, Cardmaking classes, Technique Classes, Project Life classes, Holiday themed classes, All day events, Open house, home parties and Crop nights. She has a unique class called For Men Only Valentine's class.
 She has a busy family life. The kids play on basketball, volleyball and football teams. Sheri is active in sports herself and enjoys being on the sidelines cheering on the kids and being part of their sports. Jeff helps with coaching of many of the sports and is a headcoach for two age groups with the football club, along with running that association in a nearby town. There is lots of travel for practices and games. 
Sheri balances it and has continued to grow her SU business. She loves the person she is becoming by stretching her comfort zone and experiencing so many new things with Stampin’Up! She’s always been afraid of flying but has done it because she loves meeting up with SU demonstrators from so many different places at the events she has attended. She has earned two Getaway Vacations and needed to fly to them, too! She loves teaching and can’t imagine not doing it and meeting all the incredible people she is meeting. She has become a more confident person and she loves building confidence in others.
 She believes there is magic in stamping. It makes being creative easier with all the tools we have. She loves the WOW factor of the first time someone stamps a card when they didn’t think they could do it. She loves seeing people leaving her classes with happiness, enjoying a break from daily life and for some of them, being able to leave behind some woes and enjoy the therapy of creating! She gives her customers inspiration. She allows them to be themselves in a way they didn’t know existed, to build confidence in this area of their lives. She loves when they share with her the projects they created at home from the classes she taught. She loves inspiring her ladies to be as creative as they want to be.
Her success is defined by being able to show someone something they didn’t know before they walked in the door. She says the Titles and the money earned are perks and what makes it a viable job, but the success comes from inspiring others. She believes this so much that she incorporated the word into her business name: Inkspirations with Sheri.
She sums it up: “inspiration is the process of being mentally stimulated, to do or feel something, especially to do something creative" … my goal is to inspire others.....and in this process, I have truly inspired myself to be a better person and thrive to grow every day through my creativity and sharing.

Retiring Product

Yes it is true, in a few days we are having to say goodbye to some products that we like so much!  But don't fret, you still have time to order those goodies that you haven't yet or to stock up on your favourites!  I know I have been adding a few packages of Blackberry Bliss cardstock to my supplies as I love this colour, and don't forget the ink refill to that favourite In Colour that is retiring! 

 The deadline for the current catalogues is May 31st!  

I also wanted to let you know that if you are interested in purchasing one of our current bundles from the Occasions catalogue and the Annual catalogue, you will want to do so before this deadline too.  Why you might ask?  Well some of these products are retiring, and others are still in the new Stampin' Up annual catalogue, but they will no longer be "bundled" and discounted.  So if you shop before the deadline you will still save!  Bundles are not going away, there will be new bundles in the upcoming catalogue!   Talking about the new catalogue, do you have your copy of the new catalogue yet?  Let me know and I can send you one today if you aren't already enjoying one!  Warning is an awesome one!
