Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator
I'm prepping for my Monthly Card Club this week and since it's using the Meant to Be Stamp Set, I thought I'd go ahead and use that for my blog this week as well. I've never been a big fan of Valentine's Day - ok, I probably was when I was a little girl because my dad would bring all 3 of us flowers and a box of chocolates - but as an adult, I guess I became jaded when I saw how expensive flowers and restaurants became . Tell me you love me everyday not just on the most expensive day of the year. And that's I like the Meant to Be Stamp Set. It's versatile enough to be used all year long, not just on Valentine's day.
Today's card is the perfect example of #SimpleStamping with just a few basic layers and a single stamp.

A sweet & simple blog post today as I have to run and finish last minute preparation for today's Beat the Winter Blues Mini Stamping Retreat. Leave me a comment below to be entered into this week's Prize Patrol. Measurements for the Simple Card can be found on yesterday's Blog Post, along with the list of materials used.
My son, aka 'The Lad', called me last night and of course, that just made my day. He was making tacos at 10 pm for dinner, and telling me all about how much he loves his new job. I'm just so incredibly proud of him. So in the midst of making videos, finishing tutorials, packing up card kits, and just the general flurry of last minute preparations for tomorrow's mini retreat, I decided to make a card for him. The crafter in me is screaming, "ADD A BOW OR TIE A KNOT! DO SOMETHING!" But knowing my boy, he's going to love the masculine simplicity of this. And...I used his favorite color, too!
Wishing you all a 'Crafty Weekend'. Come join me tomorrow morning at 9 am for my Crafty Saturday Facebook Live. I think I'll take this card and see what we can do to 'jazz it up' a little. What do you think?

As I mentioned yesterday, I'm showcasing some amazing guest stampers from my Stamping Bee team this week. Today's Forever Lovely Card was designed by Amy, who was chosen to be one of two display stampers for the Occasions catalog release. Amy's work is stunning. She has two little boys and uses her crafting time as her 'me' time.
Would you like to be one of my Display Stampers for the annual catalog in June? When you join my Stamping Bee team, you'll have access to new catalogs a whole month before the general public, giving you plenty of time to play and prepare your displays. It's just one more way to have fun as a Stamping Bee!

This week and next are super duper crazy here at Making Memories. Saturday is my one-day mini retreat and I'm busy as a bee (a Stamping Bee that is!) getting ready for that! And my Paper Share and Club go out next week, too! With all that, I thought I'd share some gorgeous cards that two of my Stamping Bees made for my new product display boards.
Each time there's a new catalog, I ask for help from my Stamping Bee Team to see if any would like to do some display stamping for me. This time Anthea and Amy took on my challenge and I was blown away at how beautiful their work is. Anthea chose the Beauty Abounds and Butterfly Gala Bundles with all the beautiful butterflies and Amy used the pretty floral Forever Lovely bundle. They both have very different styles than I do and that makes it even more special. I love seeing how they envision how these bundles look through someone else's eyes. I always find myself thinking, 'Why didn't I think of that?"
Being a display stamper is just one of many opportunities available to my Stamping Bees. Come learn more and find out why being a Stamping Bee is so much fun!
