New Monthly Clubs

Hello and welcome! Today I am excited to announce that I have two brand new monthly clubs to offer you!

Happy Hostess Club

I am super excited to be offering this club beginning in October.  The Happy Hostess club is a fantastic way to add some new products from your wishlist to your stamping supplies each month without blowing your budget!!

Here’s how Happy Hostess Club works:

This club requires 8 members and is an 8 month commitment (October 2020 through June 2021)

Each month you are required to place a minimum $25 order (before shipping and tax).  You can order from any current Stampin’ UP! catalogue or the Clearance Rack

Each member will take a turn at being the virtual hostess and will receive the Stampin’ Rewards for that month…. a minimum of $20 in free product (often this is much more)

When you are the hostess you are welcome to invite non-members to order as well, which will increase your Stampin’ Rewards value.

The Happy Hostess club is an online club.  

Each month I will provide you with supplies to make two beautiful cards.  This will not include adhesive, stamps, tools or the stamped images (as per Stampin’ Up! policy). 

I will provide a photo of the cards prior to the ordering deadline so you can see what we will be creating.

I will have a club group set up on Facebook for those members that have Facebook accounts to join.  This will be for club members only.  

Once a month I will host an optional Zoom meeting so we can virtually get together and make the cards. This will be held on the third Tuesday of each month.

Your orders will be placed within the first week of the month to ensure delivery before our Zoom meeting,   I will send out the exact date each month.

Club members can be from anywhere in Canada.  

I will send out a link each month to place your order through online.  If you live locally you can place your order through me and pick it up once it arrives.  If you do not live locally I will send your card supplies to you separately through Canada Post.

I am really looking forward to getting this club underway and stamping with you!!


As I mentioned before, Happy Hostess club requires 8 members in order for the club to proceed.  In the past this club has filled up very quickly so don’t delay…  Message me to reserve your spot today.   

Deadline to register will be Wednesday September 30th.


 Stamp of the Month Club


This is a fun new club that will have you adding a different stamp set to your collection each month starting in November.  Along with each stamp set you will receive precut project supplies to make THREE cards using the featured stamp set each month.


Here’s how it works:

  • Club cost will be $40 per month and will run for 6 months (November through April).  If you do not live locally or are unable to pick your kit up from me an additional shipping charge will be added.
  • Each month you will receive the stamp set of the month (retail value up to $31), precut materials to make THREE cards, and a PDF which will include a photo and supply list for each card along with basic instructions.
  • I will post a tutorial video to my YouTube channel for at least one of the cards each month for you to watch
  • Stamp sets may be substituted for one of equal value if you already own the featured set.
  • If there is a coordinating punch or die for the featured stamp set you may add that on to your kit at an additional cost.  This information will be sent out each month.

What’s great about this club?

  1. No meeting dates or times to take you away from your family or busy schedule
  2. You can create the projects from the comfort of your own home whenever it suits you
  3. Sit back, relax and look forward to a FUN package each month
  4. Receive a current Stampin’ UP! annual and holiday catalogue FREE
  5. Each month a fabulous new stamp set to add to your collection with a total of 6 at the end of the club

Deadline to register is Sunday October 31st.  First club payment will be due November 9th.

Thank you for stopping in. I hope you found something of interest today!

It’s Time for a Sketch Challenge

This lovely sketch jumped out at me as I was looking for something fun for this week’s challenge. I love when I can see a blank layout like this and the ideas just fill my mind. That is exactly what happened with this sketch and is why I chose this one for our challenge.

Creative Challenge #17

I ‘m going to switch things up for this week’s challenge. I have been seeing all kinds of ads for Pumpkin Spice lately and that gets me excited for Fall! So I decided that your challenge this week is to create a project (card, scrapbook layout etc.) that features a pumpkin. Because what says Fall better than a fat, plump pumpkin!!

These are just a few Stampin’ Up! products that came to my mind with this week’s challenge. Feel free to use any pumpkin that you have big or small, old or new!!

Happy crafting!! I can’t wait to see all the perfect pumpkin projects!!
