NEW 2020-2022 In Color Card and a Brand New Product!

I recently shared this card kit with my customers who RSVP’d for my 2020-2021 Catalog Virtual Open House.  If they responded by a certain date they received the materials to make this card.  The card features our NEW 2020-2022 In Colors as well as a brand new product in the catalog, Adhesive Sheets.  I can not tell you how excited I am to have this product available in the catalog!  It is truly a game-changer for apply intricate dies cut images, or really any die cut image.

If you are not familiar with Adhesive Sheets, here’s how they work.  You measure your piece of cardstock (enough for the die you are cutting).  Then measure a piece of Adhesive Sheet (I usually measure slightly smaller than the cardstock piece), peel off the carrier sheet, and apply the sticky side down on your card stock.  Turn your cardstock over, place the die on top, and using the appropriate “sandwich” for your die-cutting machine, run it through the machine.

I hope you enjoyed my card and the introduction to our new Adhesive Sheets!  You honestly won’t know how you’ve lived without them all this time, lol!

 

If you would like to purchase a card kit for this card, just comment on this blog post and I’ll send one out to you.  The cost is $5 which includes postage.

Happy Stamping!

Toni

Staying Calm among the Chaos

The Sale-A-Bration Last Chance
Hello and Happy Monday!  I hope you are well and managing life through these very uncertain times right now.  We are definitely navigating some unknown territory with this virus and it has many people understandably concerned.  And while I look at social media fairly regularly, it can be a bit overwhelming right now with information that at times seems to be contradictory.  My personal recommendation is to follow the CDC website and use that as a source of information.  It is also good to keep up to date with your state and local county news to see what recommendations they are offering for where you live.  But above all else, I am remaining calm and practical in my day to day activities.  And I hope you are as well.

So, what can you do if you are practicing social distancing and limiting your outside activities?  Why you stamp of course!  My plan is to catch up on creating some cards for occasions I have coming up and playing with some of the new items I’ve recently purchased.  I also am planning to increase my videos so that people who are staying at home can watch and use them as inspiration for their own projects.  So stay tuned for more posts going on my YouTube channel.  I would LOVE it if you would subscribe!  Once I receive a specific number of followers, I can start doing LIVE YouTube videos 🙂  Below is the link to my channel:

Toni Mari’s Creations YouTube Channel

Now, on to some Stampin’ UP! updates.  Sale-a-Bration ends March 31st,  that’s just a little over 2 weeks away!  With so many Sale-a-Bration reward options and the addition of coordinating products I’m sure you still have a couple items on your wish list – I know I do!

Now is the perfect time to stock up on some basics like Whisper White cardstock, adhesives, envelops, and embellishments. It’s fun to get rewarded with free, fun stamping goodies while making sure you have a supply of your essentials.  And with many deciding to be homebound for a while, you don’t want to run out of supplies.

Order today and check off your Sale-a-Bration wish list before these fantastic freebies are gone for good!

Happy Stamping!!

New Coordination Items Released Today!

If you weren’t already excited about Sale-a-Bration and the new Mini Catalog, here’s some news that will add to the excitement!  Stampin’ UP! has released 6 brand new items that you can purchase to coordinate with products in both the SAB catalog and the Mini Catalog.  But here’s the catch, they are only available while supplies last!  Last year we sold out of some of the die sets very quickly, so I’m suggesting that if there’s something that catches your eye, don’t wait to purchase it!

I created my own document to show you what the new Coordination items match with, I think it’s a little easier visually for you to see it in that format.   You can click on the picture to go directly to my online store!


And don’t forget, Sale-A-Bration is a great time to join my team!  SU! already has a great kit deal, but if you join during SAB, you can get even MORE for the $99 fee!

Stampin’ Up!’s Starter Kit is completely customizable. Build it your way! For just $99 you get:

* Your choice of up to $125 worth of any current Stampin’ Up! products
* A business supply pack valued at $50

That’s a total value of $175 (USD)

 

And during Sale-A-Bration, you get even MORE with your kit!   You get special perks that you won’t see any other time of year. Sign up between now and March 31, and you will receive the mini paper cutter, 6″ x 6″ designer series paper sampler, and your choice of a stamp set*.

*Host stamp sets and SAB stamp sets not included.

 

Look at the great benefits of becoming a Demonstrator!

It’s a great opportunity if you want to pursue your own business, OR, if you are only interested in the discount you receive on our amazing products.  There’s NO obligation at all,  you can stop at any time.

  • Get 20%–25% off all Stampin’ Up! products.
  • Earn additional income based on your sales and recruiting–just how much extra income is up to you.  And recruiting is completely optional, it is NOT a requirement!
  • Set your own schedule and put in as much (or as little) time as you’d like.
  • Get support through online training resources, events, and a demonstrator-only online community with thousands of project ideas.
  • Access to regular promotions, giving you an opportunity to purchase new product before anyone else even sees it.
  • Opportunity to earn incentive trips.
  • Chance to learn creative tips and techniques, share ideas, and come into contact with new friends who love paper crafting as much as you do!

Top 5 Items from the Mini Catalog!

Do you ever wonder what our hottest items are when a new catalog is unveiled?  Well, I’m here today to share that news with you!  As you know, items appeal to people in so many different ways, we all have our likes and dislikes.  But I have to admit that I must have my finger on the pulse this time because I have already purchased all but one of the top 5 items, lol!  Have you purchased any of these items, or are they on your wishlist?  If you are interested in getting any of these sets, I’ve included the links on the photos so that you can get to them quickly in my online store 🙂

 

 

!.  Peaceful Poppies Suite – this is the whole shebang!  The suite comes with 2 stamp sets, dies, Designer Series Paper, White Crinkle Ribbon and a package of coordinating elements to help extend your creativity.  And here’s a tip you will want to save, you can take our SU! Blends and color the white ribbon any color you want!  This ribbon is a dream to work with, it ties so easily and doesn’t add a lot of bulk to your finished design.  You can click HERE to see a video of all the products in this awesome suite!

 

2.  Honeybee Bundle – If you are a lover of bees and beehives, this bundle is perfect for you!

And did you know, we have a coordinating SAB product for this bundle as well 🙂  The Designer Series Paper is not part of the bundle above.  But you can purchase the bundle and get the SAB items for free!

 

3.  Painted Poppies Bundle (just a segment of the Peaceful Poppies Suite)

 

4.  Heartfelt Bundle – While Valentines Day is very popular in the US, this set can certainly be used for many other occasions such as Weddings, anniversaries, or even just a “thinking of you” moment.  And I love the coordinating punches.  If you have scraps of designer series paper or cardstock lying around, use one of our many punches to create a stockpile of embellishments for upcoming projects!

 

5.  So Sentimental Bundle – I love having new sentiments to use, you can never have too many!  And having coordinating dies to go along with them makes it so easy to add them to your cards.  And don’t forget, sentiments aren’t just for cards, they can be used for so many things.  Take a look at the video so see how you can create adorable treats using some elements from the Heartfelt Bundle along with the So Sentimental Bundle.

 

So, were you surprised by the top 5?  I also have the top 5 Sale-a-Bration info that I will share with you on another post.  Remember, we still have 2 months of SAB left and we will also be revealing some new coordinating products on February 4th that you can pair up with both the 2020 Mini Catalog and SAB items!  Happy Stamping!

Cheers to the New Year!

 

Happy New Year’s Eve!!  I for one can not believe we are starting a new year.  It’s usually a time of reflection for a lot of people.  And it’s a time when we want to start new habits, such as eating healthier, getting in better shape, being a better person, travel more, or just vowing to do more things on our bucket list.  It seems like the idea of a fresh slate has so much appeal, that we can have a clearer purpose in life simply by flipping over a calendar page. We look back over the last year and assess  what we feel went right and what went wrong, and how to prevent those wrongs in the new year.

2019 was pretty emotional for me.  It was my first full year without my Mom.  She was diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic small cell lung cancer in May 2018 (Mother’s Day weekend) and it took her from us 6 months later on 11/6/18. Those 6 months and especially the last 2 months of that year I was just numb and the transition into 2019 was just a blur.  And to be honest, 2019 has had its share of personal pain, going through each “1st” without Mom, the various first holidays, first Mother’s Day (heartbreaking 😥), first birthday, etc.  And I’ve had to watch some family members experience some rough times as well, which made my heart ache.  Suffice it to say, I will be more than a little ready to close the door on 2019.

So what do I want for 2020?   I want to take every opportunity I can to spend quality time with family and friends.  Because those memories are more important than whether I get back to my “fighting” weight, or I’m more organized (it’s just never going to happen 😬).  And I want to make sure I am allowing myself to do things that bring a smile to my face, like crafting and card making and taking trips with my husband, because life is too short not to do the things that make you happy!  And I know Mom would want me to focus on being happy, it’s all she really every wanted for her kids ❤️

What do you resolve to do in 2020?  Leave me a comment on this post and I’ll send you a little gift for the New Year!

Oh, and here’s a couple of other views of my Cheers card.  The stamp set and dies will retire on 1/2.  So if it’s something you’d like to have, visit my online store and click on Year End Closeout!

I wish you a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!

Cheers!

Toni
