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!

Yesterday, at our monthly team meeting, we were finally able to have our annual Stamping Bee Christmas party. Originally scheduled for the second Sunday in December, we were snowed out by an extremely early and unexpected snow storm. Then, it was going to be the New Year's Eve afternoon, but my son got sick while at home and I didn't want to expose everyone to something. Then, they were predicting ice and snow all weekend, but I kept an close eye on the weather; I did not want to have to cancel it again! Thankfully, the weather cooperated, and while cold and rainy, we did not have to cancel our plans.
Our Stamping Bee Team meetings always include dinner. Sometimes, we meet at a local pizza party, and sometimes I cook a main and everyone brings something to share. Last night, there was chicken pot pie, a lovely kale and brussel sprout salad, a delicious fruit salad, mini lemon cakes, and prosecco. The group was smaller than expected, but there are new grandbabies on the way, people in mourning, and a nasty virus going around. Still there was plenty to eat, lots to share, and of course a lot of stamping.
This time, we did a Shoebox Swap. We always swap cards. We design a card and bring enough for everyone in attendance. This time, instead of making them up in advance, we cut and prepped everything, and brought all the pieces for everyone to make them at the meeting. We put all the project boxes on a table, and each person took one box each, made their card, then returned the box to the table and got another one to make. It really was a lot of fun! There was lots of oohing and ahhing and a few new techniques thrown in for good measure. Everyone went home with 6 new cards share or keep for their own inspiration.
Stamping, swapping, enjoying a good meal, and getting together to support one another is what the Stamping Bee team is all about. Whenever we get together it's always a great time! And we're making plans to go to the local OnStage convention in Charlotte in April. Watch out! We'll be the ones having the most fun!
My Stamping Bee Team is made up of both hobbyists who enjoy getting a great discount on quality products and business minded demonstrators. I welcome both equally. Right now is really the best time of the year to join the Stamping Bee Team.

I'm "So Hoppy" to see two new Stamping Bee Team Members yesterday. Thankfully, I'd made a bunch of these "So Hoppy Together" cards in anticipation of our growing hive! I can't wait to get these out in the mail to them! and
Aren't these frogs just the cutest? I really can't believe this set is FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale-a-Bration. And with all this rain we've had this year, the frogs will be out in full force this spring. If you can't beat 'em, stamp them!
These hoppy little guys are so fun to color, too. I love using my Blends Markers to add subtle shading and they are perfect for No Line coloring! At Bingo last week, someone asked me how I store my Blends Markers . I found the pefect trays on Amazon,. There are 6 stackable racks and they hold 72 markers. They take up very little space and they fit on my shelves just perfectly. (Mine came in black, not clear).

It's the moment we've all been waiting for. It's time for the 2019 Occasions & Sale-a-Bration catalogs! In the Stamping World, Sale-a-bration is even better than Christmas since you earn FREE exclusive Sale-A-Bration products for every $50 or $100 (totals before shipping and tax) you spend.

We may be singing Deck the Halls, but these Spirited Snowmen are celebrating their love with the new Meant to Be Bundle. No matter what the season, love is what it's all about.
As I was designing my January Card Club last night with the new Meant to Be Bundle, I made an awesome discovery. The new Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies, cut out a solid heart as well as the stitched scalloped frame at the same time! And then I wondered...will that snowman couple fit on the heart? And you know what? They do! I just love it when a plan comes together, don't you?
