My Goals

Event tags 001

As you can see, I've been to TONS of Stampin' Up! Events: annual conventions, regional seminars, achievement cruises, and sr. executive meetings!! I'm publicly validating my 2014-15 Stampin' Up! GOALS because they are SUPER IMPORTANT to me this year!

    * Reach Half Million $ Career Sales

    * Achieve the Mediterranean Cruise Trip - Spain, France, Italy

These are HUGE goals for me at 64 years old and new to Florida 3 years ago!! When my hubby and I were newlyweds, we lived in SPAIN for 2-1/2 years while he was station at the US Naval Base in Rota, Spain! We have never returned to Spain, but this is our chance!!! I want to take my hubby back to where we started our life together over 42 years ago! I'm very willing to work hard to do it!

Can YOU help me?

    *Give or request a gift certificate from me for special ocassions

    *Book a home party

    *Join my classes, clubs, and online clubs

    *Bring friends to my events

    *Give me referrals of friends who would make good demonstrators OR enjoy "discount purchasing"

    *Share my BLOG with your friends

    *If you are in my North Star Stamper family, your title promotions will be       especially appreciated this year

Color Coach

2012-11-27 001 001

Are you color challenged? We all are, at times. I needed a snappy color to pair with the NEW "Hello Honey" for a class project. Stampin' Up!'s Color Coach suggested Calypso Coral and it's perfect!

2012-11-27 001 002

The Color Coach contains Stampin' Up!'s current colors and has updates for the rotating In Colors. It's handy and just the size of a deck of playing cards.

Color Coach #130118 - $14.95

In Color additions sold separately.

Work of Art

Can't stop playing with this unique stamp set, Work of Art!! Look how easy this layout is, yet it has IMPACT by using the vibrant colors of Tangelo Twist and Bermuda Bay!


Tip: I started at the bottom and stamp one set of zig-zags. Then I flipped the stamp 180 degrees to stamp the middle row, and then back 180 degrees for the top row. Simple! Try it.
