50 YEARS AND NEW CATALOG

I am having a hard time writing a title to my blog today. I am over excited about 2 things, first it is Rich and my 50th wedding anniversary. It seems like yesterday! I will post more about our celebration with our children and their wives in April.

Now on to the catalog, it goes live today!!! We can all order at 2pm EST June 1st.

I have been pre-ordering lots of new stamps, ink and paper lately and can't wait to share with my customers this Sunday at our NEW CATALOG STAMP CAMP. I will post our projects after our event. Tonight I have been working on cute name tags and will show you those later too.

Here is the new catalog and I know  you are going to love it as much as I do.

NC Demos May Blog Hop - How Do You Organize?


Wow what a challenge.  This month our hop theme is how do we organize our space and Stampin' UP! products.  I don't think I do to much different than anyone else but thought I would give it a try.  I have been working on swaps, stamp camp for June 3rd and a Sunshine SU Demo group meeting that will be in Vero Beach on June 9th.  So I have needed to work on my space anyway and did a little organizing since I  to need to change new products for the retired ones.

For my first photo was of some of my elements I was working on this week for a swap I am in. 



I saw recently on a fb group that another demo puts those strips  of card stock in a jar- you know the ones we are always cutting off card stock when we are making cards that are perfect for smaller sentiments.   So for the this is the 1/2 inch wide stripe I had saved and used for my thank you on my card.

On a second look at the photo below you will notice I have an aqua tin with my clear blocks in them at my finger tips. I have to clear block storage caddy but I like to use that when I am going to an event and wanted something open on my desk for daily usage

The aqua basket on my desk holds cleaning mist and adhesive.  (again at my finger tips)  My desk is a table with no drawers so I have to use what I have.  :)



This is my space which is where my dinning room used to be.  It works for us anyway!  The Ikea bookcase holds most of my stuff.  You will see my stamp sets on the top shelf but I have my new 2018-19 stamp sets on my desk on a small wooden bookcase type organizer.  I have the retiring Stampin' UP! ink pad carousel for my ink pads right now but we have more ink pads with the new catalog and I am sure how I am going to do something different soon.


Below I have my punches from Stamp n Storage and I do love that they have a slot for each of them, I use to have them on a shelf and every time I wanted one I would have to lift off the one above to pull the one I wanted.  NOTE TO SELF, PAINT THESE WHITE!

These 3 drawer pieces are from Walmart and I have had them forever. Sometimes I store card stock in them and in the past I have stored my ink pads in them by color family before I had to carousel. In these I have office supplies and order forms etc.  I have 2 more with card stock scraps to use on future cards. 

 For my card stock I store in these organizers from Michaels. I forgot the name of them.  You can use 8.5x11 or 12x12 in them I turn my 8.5 sideways so I can just slip out what I need without pulling the whole thing out. I also keep the plastic on the card stock so I can keep them all together.  I have sorted them in group order before but right now there is no order except for whisper white and very vanilla are pretty much in the same area. I have several of these.

I use the IKEA Raskog Utility Cart for my big shot.  I store the platforms and plates and dies underneath.  I turned the top piece upside down so I could use the big shot on top. I just wheel it where ever I need it.  I love this piece for sure.  Have you noticed I have an aqua theme here?  :) 


Before you go make sure to check to see if you are getting low on card stock and other items that there will be a price increase starting Friday June 1st.

Florida WagStampers Team Retreat

The first weekend in November some of my team members from Florida and one from Pennsylvania  gathered in Daytona Beach for a retreat. What a blast we had getting to know each other and creating together.


Here we are seated Karen Patterson and Me; standing left to right is Joan, Queralt, Jess




 We missed Joan because she had gone back in.

 This is our all for one, one for all photo.  :)


 We were playing around on the beach and taking photos of fun things.

This was a sharing our business time we later covered the composition books after they took notes.  We  laughed a lot and created a lot.  Fun times.

I could not resist having these sweet cookies made at a local bakery for the girls.  


 This was a wet bar area that was perfect with shelves and cabinets for us to store our stamping supplies.  It was like having our own stamp studio.


 The ocean views were wonderful!


This was only for 3 of us so you can imagine how much stuff we had for 5 of us.  :)

Join my team today and let the fun begin!  We play together and work together with stamp camps and play days etc.  JOIN NOW AT:   www.franceswagner.stampinup.net

April NC SU Demo Blog Hop- Mom's the Word

This month we are celebrating Mother's Day by sharing projects that celebrate our mothers, sisters, daughters, grandmothers, aunts and/or any of the other special women who have made an impact on our lives. Nothing says MOM like an apron.

This was one of my cards at our April Stamp Camp.  Everyone loved it. 




I got this cute idea for aprons from Jennifer Hill, an over the top creative Stampin' UP! demonstrator from Gainesville, FL.  I used these adorable aprons for name tags for stamp camp earlier this month. 




The banner below has aprons on it too.


These are my team members that live in the area along with Linda from Virginia that was visiting.
From Left to right: Karen Patterson, Joan Hartshorn, Faith Epp, ME, Linda Pierce, Bonnie Hughes

Below is my friend June Sullivan working on her projects. 

Carolyn Pollmeier and Betty Sicard making cards.  We always have a great time together.


Check out the rest of the NC SU Demo Blog Hop for fabulous samples.
