WAIT!! It's NEVER too late for a Valentine!

What TIME is it?  It's Valentine's time!

Well... maybe a couple of days late... lol

I created this cute Angled Gatefold Valentine for one of my workshops
BEFORE Valentine's Day, but thought you might like to try it.

I've created a video tutorial here: Country Floral Bouquet Gatefold

I've also created a PDF here:  Country Floral Angled Gatefold
(Thank you Catherine Carroll for all your tutorial help!)
I thought adding a couple of screen shots might be helpful too.
Hope you give it a try!

FREE! While Supplies LAST!

What TIME is it?  It's Sale-A-Bration Time!

I don't know about you, but my friends and I get SO excited when the Sale-A-Bration catalog comes out!  Can you say FREE!!  That's my favorite price!!

What's even better is it comes out at the SAME time as the NEW Mini Catalog!  So we can ear FREE Stampin' UP! products while getting our hands on amazing new products! 

It's a WIN.. WIN!!

There were several examples in the Stampin' UP! Sale-A-Bration catalog that are so sweet and cute using the Thanks A Bunch SAB stamp set..  but I thought I'd take a darker, more 'earthy' tone on a THANK YOU card using the FREE with $50 purchase

 'Thanks a Bunch' stamp set!

Love this fold... simply pull down to see the
inside sentiment!

This stamp set is FREE with any $50 purchase... 
So hop on over and take a creative journey watching my

Sneak Peek!!

 Here's a sneak peek of what we will be creating at my next Stampin' UP! workshop!  I cased this idea from a fellow demonstrator Susan Ashby!  She is SO creative.  Networking with other Stampin' UP! demonstrators is so inspiring!

A bunch of demonstrators in my area meet and swap cards once a month... we garner new ideas from each other every time!  If you're one of the gang please comment below and let us know what YOU think about being a Stampin' UP! demonstrator and if you agree how fun it is to network!

I will be creating a video soon!  But wanted to hop in and give some  of you a little SNEAK PEEK!  If you've ever thought about becoming a Stampin' UP! demonstrators, this is another perk... networking with fellow demonstrators can be just as fun as Pinterest!!

Prayers for all of you in Florida... our hearts are with you!
