Christmas theme for the Glimmer and Glam Girls

It is so hard to believe that it is already November. Do you know what else is hard to believe? It is time again for our monthly blog hop! This month the theme we are hopping to is Christmas.We are 51 days until the big dance! This morning on my local news, one of the anchors was toying with the idea of decorating her home for Christmas. Her co-anchor was certainly not a fan of the idea, I am not going to lie, I want to start too. With all of the kids living on their own, it is a much bigger task to decorate the house all by myself. I put up three trees, and have to contemplate whether or not to put one up out in my barn. Sigh.

Speaking of the barn, a lot of time was spent in the barn this weekend. Cleaning and organizing. It is craft show season, as well as the Christmas season, so there has been a lot of crafting. My house was really in a state, so I spent a few days cleaning and organizing, getting things back in order because I have my team meeting tomorrow night.  Lots of classes coming up as well. Christmas cards are in demand along with tags, gifts and so much more. I have designed several classes to cover all of these needs, and today I will share a card with you that was in one of these classes.

The card I want to share with you is part of the product suite, "Night Before Christmas" which is found on page 25 of the Occasions Catalog. The suite consists of stamps, dies, ribbon and memories and more cards as well coordinating cards and envelopes. I will be sharing more cards from this suite in the coming weeks.

This card was super simple to make, the DSP made the card. I cut the DSP down to 4 and 5 1/4 inches. It was layered on a night of navy card stock base,  cut to 4 1/4  X 11 and scored at 5 1/2. I stamped the sentiment on very vanilla card stock, which was punched out with the tailored tag punch. I punched the tailor tag punch on the gold foil and cut it in half. I layered the sentiment on the gold foil. The Santa die was cut out of early espresso card stock and I covered it in Wink of Stella give it a little shine!It does not photograph well but it is a great way to bling a card with out much work!

 I also colored the lights on the Designer Series Paper with Wink of Stella to add a little shimmer. To finish it off, make a quite knot and add it above the sentiment and finish it off with a gold designer element. Don't forget to add a nice red jewel to Rudolph, to complete the card! 

This card is a simple, but beautiful card.

Love and Gratitude

I have been blessed with some great customers in my time as a demonstrator. Along the way, I have managed to cultivate so many great relationships as a result of this business. These relationships extended to downline, sidelines, customers, other demonstrators and their families even the UPS folks. I don't take these relationships lightly. I try to answer every text, email and phone call immediately. I appreciate each person that takes the time to be a part of my stamping journey, in whatever way they come. Sometimes, you even have to be grateful for the bad apples. They help you appreciate the good ones.

I have had people ask me why I do this or that for my team. Why do I drive out of my way to drop something off to someone. There is no part of my business, where I am not thinking about what I can do better, or how I might better serve or reach someone that needs something. This business is a vehicle for service. It is my job, but it allows me to touch people's lives in ways that I might not ever have the opportunity otherwise.  Most of this I choose to do behind the scenes, because I am not a limelight person.

I realized today, as I received 20 emails from other demonstrators telling me about the Stampin' Up! sale that ends in a few hours, that for each customer that placed an order with me, that I am very blessed. Each order is representative of a life that I have touched and that has touched mine. I may be different than other demonstrators in what I offer or how I offer. My heart is mine and this business is an extension of my heart for people, for being a blessing to others. I appreciate each and every one of you that placed an extra order with me today. I realize it is a sale, but it is also a choice. Thanks for choosing me as your demonstrator. <3

Lots of Cheers on Sale

Stampin' Up! is certainly not the only stamp company around. What makes Stampin' Up! so special in my opinion, is the coordination they provide with stamps, ink and paper. I will share more about these products, as I start a new series of showcasing a product of the week. This week, I will share some of my favorite stamp sets.
I will be showcasing some cards made with several stamp sets including "Lots of Cheer" which you will find on page 69 of our annual catalog. There are only a few sets in the annual catalog for Christmas, because our holiday catalog was released in September, and is full of all kinds of winter and Christmas images and papers as well other Holiday must haves! If you do not have an annual catalog or a holiday catalog, please email me or text me and I will get you one so you don't miss out!

"Lots of Cheer" has several different fonts used for the greetings and three main images to stamp.
This week, I will share a few cards made with this set and a few other Christmas sets. I chose these because they will be ON SALE!! Stampin' Up! is having a 24 hour sale, and this stamp set is one of the sets that will be 15% off! You can get this set for only $17.00 versus the listed price of $20. On to a few samples.
If you are interested in purchasing this set, or any of the other sets that are on sale, let me share a picture grouping of all the stamp sets that will be included in the flash sale this Wednesday. Check these out, and as always I thank you for supporting my business. Any online purchases in my store of $35  or more, I will send a free embellishment to you!
