For maybe the 3rd time in 4 years, I don't have a card for you today. I'm off to Urgent Care for a flu test. But before I go, I'm going to leave you with the 4 gorgeous project using the Painted Seasons Bundle. And when you watch the video, you'll see some exciting new coordination products coming March 1st.
Stay well...stay dry...stay stamping!
As you may know, my team is called the Stamping Bee and as soon as I saw the Bee Thankful Stamp Set, I just has to have it! I just love my team. When we get together, there's always laughter, friendship, and stamping. And truly, it's rare when I don't have at least one of them drop by during the week, either to help me, go to lunch, or just say hi. It's this kind of friendship I was hoping to achieve when I started building my team.
I once had someone tell me that stamping was for 'old ladies'. Well, I dare you to say that to my Stamping Bees. We have ladies of all ages. Some are retired and some are in the early stages of their career. Some have grandchildren and some are just starting their familes. Like the quilting bees of old, the Stamping Bee is a place for all of us, no matter the age, to come together to craft, learn, and share from each other.
I honor each and everyone of these talented women. They bring so much joy to my life and I'd love it if you could get to know them, too. Come give us a try on March 10th at our monthly team meeting. We'll have a little dinner, do a little stamping, and best of all, spend quality time with friends.

How adorable are these gift bags? And they'll hold a LOT of chocolates, gummy bears, or whatever you decide to put in them. They'll be perfect for my Kit Night treats tomorrow night, too. I originally saw this on Sam Hammond's Pootles blog and knew I needed to make it for my guests.
This Botanical Butterfly paper is probably my favorite out of the combined Sale-a-Bration and Occasions catalog. And it's FREE with a $50 purchase. Have you got yours yet?

Wow! It's Wednesday alright and I'm stepping it up a bit today. I've got not one but two cards for you using the Life is Grand Stamp Set and the Broadway Bound Designer Series Paper. I saw this great design on Mary Fish's blog on Saturday and knew I had to give it a try. So, come and craft along with me. This is a very quick and simple design that looks complicated and will be sure to Wow anyone who receives it!

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!
