Valentine’s Goodie Bags

Hi, Guys,
Happy Sunday!!!  I hope you all are enjoying your day.  It is snowing and expected to snow all day here.  Here is the view from my craft room window.

It’s such a cold wintery day here.  It’s a perfect day to stay in my craft room all day.  I need to just get this room of mine organized.  I am spending the day working on this.  I have too much stuff and it’s so hard to get any work done when you’re not organized and you can not find stuff you know you have.  They say less is more so I am going to put that saying to the test.  I have way too much paper so that’s the first that is going.
I love that I have decided to venture into going into business and working for Stampin Up.  It has really made me craft more and come outside my comfort zone.  I am loving doing what I am doing right now.  I was craving something more and I found it.  I love being a stay at home mom and that was always what I wanted.  I am so lucky to have the choice to be a stay at home mom/wife.  I decided that I do not want this to be work but to be fun so that’s how I am treating it.  I will have in home parties if people want them but I would much prefer doing everything online.  I want to build up my customers and build up a team.  I have so many ideas.  There are Demonstrators in my area, I have actually reached out to one that I found on the Stampin Up website and she never reached back to me.  The only thing I ever heard from her was I received a mini Stampin Up catalog and that was it.  No letter, no reach out at all.  I don’t want that. I was following a Demonstrator online for many years.  She was not a Stampin Up demonstrator at the time I started following her.  She was doing a lot of Cricut Crafts and then started her own line of stamps and eventually went to Stampin Up.  I chose her because I felt like I had more of a connection with her over 2,000 miles away then with any Demonstrators in my area.  She always reached out with any order I would make with her.  Any questions I had she always answered.  So that is what I want to give to my customers, and team members.  I want that personal connection so I can help in any crafting needs they may have.
So here are some of the cards I have made in the last few days.

I love how these all turned out.  The Coordinating papers, inks, dies, ribbons, and stamps all make a huge difference in the outcome of your crafts.    I also made my son’s goodie bags.  I always make goodie bags for my boys for their classmates and friends for most holidays.  My oldest is in 7th grade and he still wants them, all his friends and kids in class ask if his mom will be making them.  I love this so much.  My little guy love elephants so I try to incorporate some elephant in his goodie bags.  Here is what I came up with for his.

Not all stuff used was Stampin Up products.  The kids only really care about the candy in the bag so I try not to go too crazy with the design.  I try to keep it simple and the paper I use is the lower quality paper at the craft store.  I will save Stampin Up card stock for family, friends, customers, etc…  I made a video on my process on how I make the goodie bags which I will link at the end of this post.  I still need to make bags for my oldest and a little something for their teachers and bus drivers.  Don’t forget guys about my Card Club.  It is something I will be doing every month with different card designs.  I am pretty excited about it.  I hope you guys take advantage of it.  Don’t forget that Sale-A-Bration is still going on right now through March 31, 2017.  When you spend $50.00 pre-tax, pre-shipping you will earn a free product from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  If you want any of the current catalogs shipped out to you just let me know and I will send you them free anywhere in the US.  There is also a copy of the catalogs at the top right-hand side of my website.  Happy Wednesday!!!
