Petal Palette Birthday Card

I made a card!  If you think that's nothing extraordinary, well, usually that would be the case.  BUT I have been feeling pretty wretched since the middle of November and just haven't felt like doing anything--simply lost my mojo!  But I am feeling better so I got my act together and made this card for an Occasions catalog swap.  This card uses the Petal Palette stamp set and matching dies as well as the Perennial Birthday stamp set.

                                                     

                                                       

And here is the inside

                                                         

Having a deadline to get swaps done certainly helped me get myself in gear but just feeling better made this possible!

Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-Bration Live NOW!

The new Occasions catalog is now live and available for you to order!  AND it is Sale-a-Bration time!  Shop 24/7 at http://bit.ly/ShoppingwithBeckyTaylor

                                         

Wonder what Sale-a-Bration is all about??? It's all about FREE--free stamps, paper, kits, dies!  For every $50 in product that you order, you get to choose 1 free Sale-a-Bration (SAB) item.  And this year Stampin' Up! is changing things up a bit--now there are two levels of items!  Level 1 is available for that $50 order and Level 2 is available when your order reaches $100.  There are word dies (which will carryover) and a huge stamp set!  Have an even larger order?  You can mix up what you want!  When you place your order, there will be a box below where you order your items which will tell you how many SAB items you can choose.  Put what you want in that box!  And on February 16, Stampin' Up! will add new SAB items!  YAY!

During this time of Sale-a-Bration (Jan 3 - Mar 31), there are even more rewards!

* Host Rewards are even bigger!  With a $250 order, you'll receive 10% in rewards PLUS an extra $25!  So your rewards are doubled!  Have a party (either in person or online), get your friends together to place a large order, or just order for yourself!  If you'd like to have your own host code so that your friends can order with you and you earn those rewards, I can create a host code just for you!  Just let me know!

                                    

*  Starter Kit is bigger and better!  Purchase a starter kit for just $99 and you can choose $125 worth of products (your choice of what you want!) PLUS 2 additional stamp sets (value up to $101).  That raises the value of your starter kit to ~$250!  Stampin' Up! will also add a Paper Pumpkin kit, business supplies, and an exclusive 30th-anniversary pin available only to demonstrators.  You cannot add SAB items to your starter kit, BUT you can then place another order to get your SAB items and save 20% on that order plus every additional order!  Join just for the discount, to start a business you can do from home, to meet and make new friends, whatever you choose!  Have questions?  I'll be happy to answer any questions!  You can click on the "Starter Kit" tab above or click here to join!  Yes, there are minimums to be met to remain a demonstrator ($300 retail per quarter --that's $240 with your discount if you are the only purchasing) but you will have until the end of June to meet those minimums.  And if you decide after that to leave, there are no further obligations.  You don't have to hold classes, hold events, or do anything that you don't want to!  You'll belong to a wonderful group of ladies who are having fun with Stampin' Up! and we communicate through Facebook and email.  I hope you'll find you love it as much as me and I would love to have you join my team!  As a perk of being a demonstrator, you get the opportunity to attend exclusive Stampin' Up! events and get the new catalogs a month or more before everyone else and SU! offers incentive trips (the trip for 2018 is an all-expense paid trip for two to cruise the Greek Isles!--I'm hoping to earn that trip myself)  Email me at beckysstampingspot@comcast.net or give me a call at 256-852-0603 and I'll be happy to answer any of your questions!

Birthday Delivery Birthday Card

My grandson turned 5 on New Year's Eve and he had requested a game called "Catch the Fox".  As a good Nana, I, of course, bought him that game.  Needing a card to go with his presents I thought the fox from the Birthday Delivery set would be perfect.  He also has a turtle so I needed to add that to the card.  The Birthday Memories Designer Paper and the Birthday Friends dies make making this card so easy!  All of the dies in the set cut out stamped images as well as images on the Designer Paper!

                                                       

The turtle, bear, and squirrel had to be fussy cut but that's not too hard to do.  I neglected to photograph the inside of the card but it uses the "Happy Birthday" from the Birthday Delivery stamp set, a sentiment from Number of Years and a 5 cut out of glimmer paper using the Large Number dies.  All the details and instructions are available here

Christmas Stamp-a-Stack cards

With all the hubbub of getting my Christmas cards made, I just realized that I never shared the cards we made at my Christmas Stamp-a-Stack.  I haven't done the project list for each of them but will try to get that done!

Here are the cards we made:

 

    

 

    

A lot of the items used on these cards are available in the Year-end Clearance Sale.  And don't forget about the Clearance Rack

I'll be closing out my December Host code by the 29th.  Use it and you'll be entered into a drawing for host prizes.  Becky and Donna won last month!

 

Time is running out...

As the year comes to a close, time is running out for several things:

The Year-end clearance ends on January 2.

The last day to order from the Holiday catalog is January 2.

AND the last chance to reserve your Stamparatus (wonderful, amazing stamping tool!) is December 31.  If you don't reserve yours by then, you'll have to wait until the new annual catalog comes out in June!  To reserve your copy, you will need a credit card (just to hold your reservation--you won't be charged until your Stamparatus comes into the warehouse (you will be sent an email telling you to add yours to an order and then you will be charged). It will be sometime next spring before it arrives though so you'll have to be patient.  Don't delay in reserving yours if you want to greatly improve your ability to stamp!

   

I'm so looking forward to getting mine sometime in February!  Once I get it, I'll share some cards made with it to show you its great versatility!

Peach Oh So Eclectic Card

This month I decided to shake things up as a "thank you" for my customers who have ordered from me.  Using an idea from my upline Jessica Taylor, I decided to mail all the components for a card to them and let them assemble them any way they choose.  They could stamp whatever sentiment they liked, or needed, for cards to mail for themselves.  I decided to make mine a birthday card!

Here is the card as I created it:

I hope they all enjoyed making their very own card to use as they please!
