Spotlight Saturday - Karel Standish

Today I am spotlighting Karel Standish who has been on my team since November 2011 and lives in Garner, NC. When I first met Karel she was the bookkeeper at South East Raleigh High School and worked at her Stampin' UP! business too.  Karel has now retired and is a full time Stampin' UP! demonstrator.  Karel also has team members under her and is active with the NC SU Demo group that meets and shares ideas throughout North Carolina.

Karel is a creative stamper and loves to teach new techniques in her classes at her Sassy Stamper's Meetup Group and her stamp clubs that she has each month.  I always look forward to see what new ideas Karel comes up with. She always inspires me.  If you want to check out Karel's samples you can check your FB page here

Meet Karel Standish!

This is a card that Karel shared with me recently and I thought I would share it with you too.

Weekly Deals & Card Class

Great products this week!  The "Crazy About You" set is so versatile. 

Today I had my monthly card class at Rockridge Clubhouse and we had such a fun time.  We made 3 cards that everyone loved.

Carol (standing) was my helper today. She didn't know she was going to be when she came she just stepped up to the plate to help me.  Carol is in my stamp club and is very creative.  In the picture above are 2 new stamping friends sitting on the left is Carole  and on the right is Millie.  Millie had a party last weekend and two of her friends came to my class to find out more about stamping. 

Judy on the left is also a new stamper and she loved it too. Bunny on the right is an experienced and creative stamper and a great helper to Judy, I think we all found new friends.  That is one of the things I love about being a Stampin' Up demonstrator when you meet new people that have that spark to find their creative side, you end up with a new friend. :)

These are my sweet friends Bonnie and Susan collaborating on their projects. They are both in my stamp club and need very little help in making whatever project I present to them.

This is one of our projects we made today. Remember after February 15th you will not be able to get this FREE stamp set.  So if you LOVE it make sure you get a $50 order in and get it free from now through 2/15/16.  Contact me for more information.  Don't forget to use the February Hostess Code for a surprise from me.

Thanks for stopping by.

I am privileged to be able to blog hop with some awesome North Carolina Demos!  Our group will using Sale-a-bration sets.

I choose to use the adorable Honeycomb Happiness set.  Such cuteness.   I used the paper piecing technique to create this little chick, you stamp the image on Whisper White and then again on Daffodil Delight and cut out the Daffodil Delight chick and mount on top so you don't have to cut those tiny little feet, they show through underneath.  I love this technique. I used it with several cards I have made recently. This is one of the cards we will be making in my 1st Thursday card class at Rockridge Clubhouse at 10am this coming week 2/4/16. Let me know if you want to sign up for the class. (I got my idea of using the Timeless Textures background for this card from Erica Cerwin.)

Sale a Bration ~ Come on and have a good time.

This is a card we made recently with my stamp club, we could make it at your party too! The sweet paper (Wildflower Fields designer paper) #141022 was FREE from the SAB catalog.  The flower is from another one of my favorite Big Shot dies: Botanical Builder Framelits Dies #140625

 I love the new Party Pop-Up Thinlits Dies #140620 on the inside of the card.

Every time I say Sale a Bration each year  during SAB, I want to dance to that song "Celebration" by Kool and the Gang from the 1980's spelled different of course. Are you dancing yet?  So as I am writing this blog post I am listening to it on my computer and bopping around in my chair. Great visual right. Sooooooooooo what are you waiting for, Celebrate with me and have a SAB party in February.  I may even download the Celebration Song and play it while we stamp. 

Remember when you gather your friends and stamp together at your Stampin' UP! Party everyone will want to have these sweet products (and some for FREE) When you and your friends order $50 from either our annual catalog or the NEW Occasions you get any item in the NEW SAB catalog. Plus we make a fabulous card together.  NOTE: The links are on the right side of my blog if you don't have a catalog check it out. 

On another note if you don't have time to meet but want to have an on line Face Book Party, I can arrange that too. I will have samples to show you and I will have the link to the catalog for you for your on line party and the beauty of it is that your friends and family don't have to live in your town or state. They can order from here, there, everywhere in the US. Contact me to get on my calendar to book your party.

 Gift with purchase using this code! 

Thanks for stopping by!
