I wanted to say THANK YOU again to all who helped make this past year so awesome!…
Being named to the Stampin Up Founder’s Circle for 2014 is truly an honor. Founder’s Circle represents the top 100 demonstrators in the U.S. and as you can see, It’s a totally amazing group of ladies. I’m still doing the happy dance over this announcement last weekend. thank you thank you thank you!…who knew that signing up as a hobby Demonstrator 6 years ago would lead to this!…I’m still blown away every day.
I was also recognized for recruiting for the past year and I am so thankful for my team, they are just a super group, you met some of them on Tuesday and I shared our latest group ATC project with you last week also – see below. We have a private facebook group where we gab and get to know each other as we are spread across the country…
All in all, a pretty exciting week – and we had some time to share some stamping too:
Last Friday I shared this little guy with you - details here:
Then on Monday I shared the finished Group ATC Project - see it here
Tuesday was our Happy Stampers Team Blog Hop a total of 10 great projects shared on this hop, all using stamp sets from the new catalog - see it here
and the blog candy winner from this blog hop, is Patricia Owens – congratulations Patricia, I’ll be shipping your gift in the next couple of days.
Wednesday was the Stamping and Blogging Design Team Hop – 9 great card ideas all from one sketch – view it here:
Stamping and Blogging had a great week too:
On the Stamping Side:
We loaded a tutorial for the Traveler Card from last week’s sketch challenge
Next was a tutorial and video on a fun curved Poly Stamp Technique with the Boutique Borders Stamp Set
Then a cute (and Bright) little guy combining the Sweet Stuff and Boutique Borders Stamp sets in a One Sheet Wonder page
and another One Sheet Wonder for this cute little BEE Happy card again with the Sweet Stuff Stamp Set
What’s a One Sheet Wonder? has a picture, product list, cutting instructions and bullet points for completing the projects – usually quite simple, and usually 10 minutes or less…the members who are Demonstrators use these as class projects and hand out the sheets to their customers and they are great if you need a card in a hurry (you don’t have to be a demonstrator to be a member of our community).
On sketch day, (Wednesdays) we always add a project sheet with the basic instructions for the sketch – and then the Design Team projects are loaded to share 9 different ideas for the sketch – woo hoo – LOVE our Design Team (and I am now linking all the cards under the sketch so they are super easy for you to find).
and I followed it up with a full picture tutorial and video on how I created this card for the challenge using the An Open Heart Stamp Set from Stampin Up
and detailed instructions on how I water colored the bird.
And Heather was super busy on the Blogging side:
She has been working on a series: Online Event Registration….how to set it up on your blog, you could use it for a class, a catalog share, etc.
using the Mail Chimp Program she did lessons on:
- Step 1: Creating the “Sign Up” Form
- Step 2: – Add sign Up Form to Blog Sidebar
- Step 3: – Setting Up the AutoResponders
I’m so glad she did this, LOL….I have wanted to learn this forever!~…..
then, she did a COOL TOOL video on the Stampin Buddy – how to use it and how to add it to your blog posts – members are all over this, and can’t believe how easy it is!…
She has a total of 87 videos in the Blogging Side now, and she has totally finished the series
HOW TO SET UP A BLOG – (and run it).
It’s so cool, you just work your way through the Index page, one step at a time, it’s all in order for you and linked, so you don’t have to go looking for the videos.
She covered all three platforms – Blogger, Typepad and WordPress….so if you have been thinking about starting a blog – here is all the info you need!…all in one place
she also creates blog sidebar buttons for all the specials and events, and yes we have a video to show you how to install them!…
ok, that’s the round up for this week…I’ve got a super cute 10 minute or less card for you tomorrow, and I’m spending the next couple of days putting the finishing touches on the next Online Stamping Class….my sister in law is arriving today from Toronto Canada to Spend a week with us, and we are sneaking in a little trip to the beach, I’ll share that with you on facebook, you know I LOVE the beach!…
Anyway, thanks again, for the past super amazing week, I am so blessed to be able to share what I love with all of you.
Hugs and Happy Stamping
