Tickled pink that tomorrow is finally here... well, it WILL be here... tomorrow... you know what I mean. Today is all about getting packed up and putting the finishing touches on my massive preparations for the 2013 Birthday Bash stamp camp. It is going to be so fun! And the weather is supposed to be nice, even. Can't think of a better way to spend a COLD January morning than making all the birthday cards we need for the whole year. Think of how awesome it will feel to be that organized and on top of things each month!
This guy card is one of my favorites for this event. I've always loved the Tool Shed background stamp (#123688) but I wasn't sure if it would look good paired with the more formal-looking Memorable Moments stamp set (#126682) and the coordinating Framelets for the Big Shot. But I like how it turned out, especially the tone-on-tone Sahara Sand contrasting with the dark Cherry Cobbler and Basic Gray colors.
Memorable Moments is such a cool stamp set. It has a complete set of numbers and numerical suffixes to make any birthday or anniversary date you can think up. Wouldn't it be fun to send newlyweds a first anniversary card? Or a 99th birthday card?
So that's one of the Birthday Bash options for men...
...here's one of the options for women! This one looks nice but is so easy, my stampers tomorrow will be able to crank out several at once to keep on hand for random birthdays that pop up during the year. I just keep finding fun new layouts for that Blooming with Kindness stamp set (#126422). Seriously one of the best stamp purchases I made in 2012!
Lots of layers... and they're all pre-cut for you! Lucky Ducks! Did you know that's one of the biggest reasons people tell me they don't want to be a demonstrator-- because they'll have to start from scratch? I have two answers to that! First, you can still attend my events once you sign up. In fact, I encourage it! You'll get samples you can use and learn lots of tips for your own business, should you decide to go for it.
And secondly, being a demo means you will LEARN, LEARN, LEARN all the cool cutting tricks I know! I've learned tons of things over the years that make prepping for events easier and "magic" measurements to get the most from a sheet of cardstock. And with the Tabletop Paper Cutter and the new personal Stampin' Trimmer, it's easier than ever. So don't let the thought of having to start from scratch hold you back from being a demo.
Got other questions about what life as a Song of My Heart team demonstrator for Stampin' Up might look like? Shoot me an email! I'm a busy girl, yes, but I'll make time for YOU. Let's chat!
Beautiful cards, Lyssa. I love the simplicity of your style...very duplicatable. ;-)

LOL! Isn't it funny when we in WI say 30 degrees and sunny is "good weather"! The designs all look awesome! Have fun!
