Love My Job--I get paid to stamp all day!!!

I really do love my job as a SU! Demonstrator, but I really don't stamp all day--one can dream, though!!! One perk as a demonstrator is we can earn FREE stamps!!!  And, that includes during Salabration!  As demonstrators, we can earn free stamps for our sales and recruiting efforts.  And,   I was eligible for some extra freebies for promoting to "manager" from my upline this spring.  What an exciting box I received!!!!!

The set with the bird is called Choose Happiness.  It has been my go to stamp set since getting it--very versatile!!!  

How about you?  Would you like a discount on ALL your rubber stamping and paper crafting purchases all the time?  No need to wait for a sale or a coupon!!!  I would love to have you on my team!  Join the fun here.  Happy Creating!  Bye for now, Maria

April Stamp Club: Tag a Bag Book

For our April's Stamp Club project we made a baggie book, which is literally a few bags folded in half, layered, and tied together with some pretty ribbon.  These aren't just any ordinary lunch sacks or brown paper bags.  They are super cute and come pre-printed with a chevron pattern.  The catalog description says they are "food safe", and that the chevron pattern is an "ombre print"--not seeing the ombre--it just looks like it's been stamped with white paint or white craft ink.  These are actually called "tag a bag gift bags."  That's a long name!

To create a pocket, cut off the sealed end of your bags.    

We've added some sentiments, and left room to add a personal note.  The pocket would fit a gift card or small photograph.

Add some stamped images and punches.  You can stamp directly on the bag, but give it a few minutes to dry so you don't smear the ink.  

These little books would make a really cute mini scrapbook, or gift card holder.  

The Tag a Bag Gift Bags have been carried over from the 2013/2014 catalog into the 2014/2015 catalog.  Check back next month for another great project.  Happy Stamping!  Bye for now, Maria
