Petal Palette and New Monthly Hostess Code

Hi everyone, as most of you are aware I was down with a yuck flu for the past week!  But yesterday I forced myself up and took a long hot shower so that I could make myself feel better.  It definitely worked.  I missed chatting with everyone, but I sure appreciate the messages and prayers that I received they absolutely were a blessing!

Yesterday I decided to work on my favorite bundle and that is the Petal Palette with the Petal Passion Designer Paper.  Omigosh I love all of the black and white, it’s classic, however add that pop of color and it’s so much more.  I even played with my Stampin’ Up Blends!  If you have not got those, it’s a must.  You can start small and purchase 1 set at a time or buy the whole kit at once.  I promise you will not regret it!

I did a video that really takes much longer than what the card actually takes, but gives you a couple of ideas to try!

 

I hope you enjoyed the video and I know you can tell I’m still got a cold going on but definitely getting better!

The New Hostess Code this month is B4W3TGD6.  Don’t Forget for every $50 spent you get to pick a free item from Sale-A-Bration Catalog!  Also if you spend $150 please let me know so I can give you a personal code for more free goodies!

Join a Great Team

Have you thought about joining a team of crafters?  To earn extra monies for things or to just get discounts on high quality crafting supplies for your own creativity?  Or taking another direction in your career?

Let me share the reason I joined.  I joined to find others to share my craft with.  Living in a small town coming from a large city where supplies were in abundance, crafting retreats and late night scraps were gone.  I’ve been a customer of Stampin’ Up! for many years, but just for my own hobby.  When I moved to T or C, NM, I started thinking about why not share what I love doing.  Opportunity to meet new people and believe me did I ever.  I literally have met people from all over the world that I have gotten to know online and then met at conferences.  Yes I have to admit I love going to our OnStage conferences.

Stampin’ Up! recognizes not everyone wants to start a business and that they would like to invite them to be involved as well to get insider tips on new items and trending projects.

Well hold on because Stampin’ Up! is offering a wonderful opportunity this month!  Not only can you get $125 worth of supplies in your starter kit for only $99, they are also offering for you to pick out two (2) extra stamp sets for free. You cannot beat that!  One more kicker, the price of the stamp sets does not matter you can pick out the two most expensive ones to get for free.

If you are interested or have questions on how it works, please send me an email at awest@craftydreams.com or click the link below

Flu in New Mexico and a change to schedule.

So sorry it’s been awhile since I posted, preparing for my class last Sunday (which was awesome) and then by evening I felt something coming on and by morning down for the count.  Today is my first day being able to sit up, lots of steroids, shots and antibiotics and I will survive.  My goodness it just knocked me for a loop.

So let’s update you with things so far.   Love Today Planner class was wonderful, by now all online class members have received their goodies and their private link for their video.  I hope you enjoy the video I was definitely in a jolly mood.  Here is a couple of pics from my set up and some of the items we were using.

One thing I thought was really great with this class was several brought photos and matted them to the front of their months tabs and it looked so adorable!  I will grab pictures for everyone to see.  This was not just a planner for them it was memories, journaling and keepsakes!  Guaranteed to keep forever.  Some products we used with the class and is so great to have on hand!

If you are still interested in taking the online version please send me a message and I will get you hooked up!  I promise you wont regret journaling at the same time as planning.

Now the change to my schedule, I was having a big open house this Sunday, but unfortunately I will have to reschedule until January 21st due to this illness I’ve gotten way behind.  I hope everyone understands and realizes it gives me more time to make it even better, yay us!

Sale-A-Bration and the Occasions Catalog

Woo Hoo, my favorite time of the year at Stampin’ Up!  The Occasions Catalog came out today, and it is simply awesome.  Each year we have a great catalog for the spring and you will love it.  One of the great parts is the fact that for every $50 you spend you get to pick a free item from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  How great is that and the catalog helps you to match up with items that you have ordered.

Each day I want to share some great items, I’m not going to lie I have some hands down favorites in both of the catalogs.  I can’t wait to share each suite of products for easy and fun to create projects.

If you would like me to send you both of the catalogs just send me a message with your address and I will get one out to you right away.  If you would like get in on it right away here is a link for ordering with the Occasions Catalog.  Click Here!!  Take a look at some of the products coming your way!

Let’s start celebration off right!  If you would like to get a handmade card made to give to a friend post a comment, if you would like to get a second one guess what my favorite item might be in the new Occasions Catalog.  There might even be a hint somewhere on this page!

New Year! New Beginnings!

As everyone can see I have a new website which is awesome but in transition somehow lost most of my year!  The positive is that it is set up the way I like and easier to find the things you would like to see!  I will be posting all of my new posts and special on Monday, the New Year.  I’m so excited about this year and can’t wait to share everything coming your way. So many new things that I am all atwitter (my word for the year lol). If you have things you would like to see don’t hesitate let me know I’m happy to try anything crafty even if it becomes one of those Pinterest Fails!  Due to losing a lot of my projects I will be uploading photos in the gallery this weekend.  Make sure you follow me and please sign up for the newsletter you never know what might be in it.

This year has been a great year!  Personally and professionally!  Meaning my crafty business, I did more online than usual and I’m glad that I can reach more people.   I also got to travel and not only meet new people but become part of a new family.  Stampin’ Up!  has been  a blessing, in 2018 I was able to attend both OnStages, San Diego and Salt Lake City!  I love the fact my husband loves to come with me, he also has met some great friends from around the country.  One Daughter graduated from NMSU and got engaged, another daughter started her junior year at Willamette University and my oldest is finishing up her degree in Software engineering!  Take a look at some of the fun we had this year!!

NEW YEAR NEW TOOLS!

Have I mentioned how excited I am about the new year! This year is going to be unlike any I have had. I am actually earning money doing my favorite thing in the world (besides spending time with my awesome daughters of course, especially my favorite daughter, Cassie) and that is crafting! Last fall I knew this is what I wanted to do and it’s really happening. I love the people I’m meeting in my classes online and in-person. Never a dull moment for sure. At the time I made the decision that I really wanted to go into this business there are some things I knew I needed, better lighting, organization and really cool business cards. Ok I may be biased, my daughter designed them!

So I got those three things and feel so empowered, ok there’s more to it and I will share bits at a time. I love being excited about the new year, just what I needed too!

Of course let’s talk about what’s new? Sale-a-Bration starts Tomorrow and I will be doing online tutorials with all of my favorite products each week. To be honest there are a few that will blow you away!

If you are thinking about going into the crafting business as a hobbyist or demonstrator, this could not be a more perfect opportunity. Starting the 4th, not only can you get your kit worth $125 for only $99, but you also get to pick 2 sets of stamp sets FREE! As a member of the Pink Stamper Team we will be holding an online Opportunity night on January 4th. If you are interested please send me a message and I will send you an invite.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

What a great year even with it’s ups and downs. Having all of my girls spending time with me this year was so awesome! I decided no resolutions for the New Years but very happy to have set goals for myself. I want to share a few of my goals with you:

1. Post a minimum of three (3) posts a week.
2. At least one (1) video tutorial a week.
3. Create and research new techniques once a weekend, then share it.
4. Update Crafty Dreams Facebook daily
5. Make lots of new friends

One of the exciting things I do want to share is for every tutorial I do, one of my viewers will receive the card(s) we complete during the tutorial. Also I will be offering specials and giveaways weekly. But most of all we are going to have fun, whether a beginner or a long time crafter! I hope you are as excited as I am.

One more HUGE Announcement!! It’s Sale-A-Bration Time for Stampin’ Up starting January 4th. I will be posting some of the most fabulous products everyday this week. Get ready for some awesome deals and even greater projects!

Check out some of the Awesome Projects you will see coming up!!
