Well, I took the plunge and signed on with my friend Brian King to be an Independent Stampin'Up! Demonstrator. I am SO not a big salesman, so this should be interesting. I am a big fan of SU! colors; all the cardstocks and inks and embellies coordinate beautifully, and the quality of it all is just amazing. They also gather a really wonderful group of people to them, so I am in good hands, I think!
I had actually signed up a couple of years ago, and I was just overwhelmed with this KIT of stuff and all the paperwork, and this demand of sales. I quietly let the whole thing fade away, a sad and miserable death. I have a better idea of what I'd like this to be, this time. I hope. I look forward to working under Brian's wing, especially. We crafty men have to stick together!
The box with all my goodies came, and I immediately busted it all out and got to creating something. I got the blossom punch, and the Mixed Bunch stamp set, along with some Baja Breeze and Pumpkin Pie inks. I was ready!! I decided to do a quick, CAS card.
I made this--
So, time for the big fix. I hate to toss something that is this complete, especially when I haven't done my famous trick of smearing ink across the front at the last possible second. This could be fixed, and I went to it!
I did this--
I went back to the stamp set and pulled out the smaller stamps. A few scraps of cardstock from the layering pieces (which I could've punched out before making the layering pieces, had I thought of it),some extra bling, and some felt flowers from Michael's, along with MANY Stampin' Dimensionals, and I was set. Hard to even FIND the center of this floral madness, much less find the fault of it all!!
And, let's face it, three simple flowers doesn't say "Amazing, Awesome and Talented" anywhere NEAR what a riot of blooms can do!
I am liking the idea of a Fix-it Friday feature. I sure make enough stuff I don't "love" that could benefit from some improvements!
Please think of me when you are looking for your Stampin'Up! products. I would love to help you get creative with this great stuff! I will be setting up a webpage that you can go to to place your orders just as soon as I can figure out how to do it. In the meantime you can email me, and I will hook you up!
Thanks for stopping by!
All Best, and Happy Weekend!
