About to reach new title of Silver!

WooHoo! I am only $1800.00 away of reaching the Silver status! If you are new to Stampin' Up! or even have heard about Stampin' Up! you will find that the demonstrators receive certain things for reaching a new title.
When you first join Stampin' Up! you are automatically at the Bronze level with a regular commission of 20%. The next level is Bronze Elite, where you receive an increase in your commission to 25% after reaching $1800.00 in sales.  At Silver, you receive a lovely silver necklace (or a silver money clip, your choice) after $3600.00 in sales and 1 new demonstrator ; and it goes up from there all the way to Platinum Elite.
So I have a deal for you! I need one recruit and at least 12 customers to place an order 0f 150.00 or more AND you will receive the "I Want It All" deal from the new Holiday Catalog for helping me reach my goal. Not sure what that is?
Here is what you will get:
54 sheets of DSP (6x6), 11 Yard of new ribbon/trim and 63 embellishments!
That is a $40.00 value free and you will also get 10% in Stampin Rewards to spend also.
This deal is only good until the goal of $1800.00 is reached after that no deal!
But wait...There is more. The person who gets me to the $1800.00 and the person who joins my team will also get a FREE Stamp Set from the Holiday Catalog from ME!
You will choose from these sets:

Season Like Christmas

Feeling of Christmas

Santa's Suit
Christmas Happiness
Brightly Lit Christmas
Smitten Mittens
Hug in a Mug
Merry Café
Painted Harvest
Spooky Cat

So grab a pen and paper, download the catalogs ( both on the sidebar) and start shopping, call your friends to call their friends and a friend of a friend and well your get the point.
 Have fun and get this deal while it lasts!

I will monitor daily to see who gets me there and if you want to be sure I know you have placed an order...email me at:
and put in the subject line "SILVER" or "RECRUIT"

    First Craft Fair is a SUCCESS!!

    My step-daughter and I attended our first craft fair. It was hot 87 degrees, luckily we breezes on and off through out the day. This being our first craft fair, we were not sure if things would sell. Where we were located was at a library off the beaten path of the main street. We thought for sure this was not going to be good. We actually made money, we were surprised at how many people did find the area. Here are some pictures of our items:
    My step daughters table:

    My table:

    We met a lot of nice people and a woman who had done craft shows for years and had retired so she could become the shopper :) gave us advice and pointers. All help is appreciated.

    No Winners for my contests:(

    I am not understanding what I could be doing wrong that no one wants to enter my contests. For those of you who do follow me is there any advice you can give to help me boosts more feed on blog. Any and all advice will be greatly appreciated. I know I am fairly new at creating cards, but not to crafting. Hopefully when I post pictures of my display at the craft fair it will help boost my blog. So until then I will just keep blogging away with what I have.
    Please leave me a comment on what you think or feel I should do to boost more productivity.

    Autumn/Fall the season of fireworks and bonfires...

     digging out your scarves to feel the crisp cool breezes, the scents of apple and pumpkin pies, hot apple cider to drink by the fire. Friday night football games. To play hide and seek in the leaves (we played ghost in the graveyard). Run through the leaf piles, hayrides, cooking pies and eating marshmallows over the fire, making smore's, telling ghost stories, oh the days of being a kid.
    That is okay though now being an adult can be fun to especially with Stampin' Up!
    If you are like me you have been checking out all the other demonstrators emails and blogs to see what they have created with the Holiday catalog. Wow! There is some very inspiring demonstrators out there and I hope I am one of them that you look forward to receiving an email from.
    I LOVE the Coffee Café bundle. I have made several cards with it. I did not realize they would come out with one for the Holiday's called the Merry Café.
    So before I know this I created some Holiday cards with the Coffee Café.

    Here is what I created with the Merry Café for fall.
     From left to right front to back, the first one is an easel post it note/calendar card and I used "Hello Fall Its pumpkin spice latte season," I die cut 3 of the Perk Up cups, the second one is a matchbook post it note and I used the Apple Cider stamp. The back one is a gate fold card with a belly band and I used the Wood Words stamp " Thanks a bunch" and the next one is a note pad and I die cut a perk up cup, a gold mini cup and used the "Par-Tea! in a cup stamp. 
     Here they all are opened up. The card inside I stamped Apple Cider and from Wood Words I used " A note for you" , the circle (also on the belly band) from wood words and stamped Farmers Market. I then cut a crate with the framlit adhered it and added an apple keychain. This would be excellent for a teacher!
    Close up of the Easel card and Gatefold card. The DSP is from Stampin' Up! Petals & Paisleys(retired)
    I hope I have inspired you and if you would like to order these products just go to the Shop with me Online on the side bar.
