Grand Event

My diamond promotion pins - oh yeah!

Coaches Promotion
I am still so excited - Our first ever Fun Stampers Journey convention -  "Grand Event"  was held at the Pomona Fairplex on September 4th - 6th.  Everyone was invited including all existing Coaches, friends and  family, the Journey crew, our CEO Richard Garay  and the amazing Journey staff.  We rubbed shoulders with such talent we felt their energy transfer thru us.  The excitement was contagious and overwhelming.

It's a Busy, Busy World

I can hardly believe it is October already.  August and September just flew by and both months were filled with a whirlwind of activities. I have been inspired by my friends, the weather and the seasons to create, organize and blog.  So. . . here goes.

First I want to show you the fun cards made available to recreate from our Fun Stampers Journey crew in Arizona.  It is the August kit of the month (KTOM) and is using the stamp set XXXXXXX.

It is so easy to obtain.  Just go to  and click on Kit of the Month to sign up.  Or message me on facebook and I will walk you through it.  I love all the special creations produced exclusively for this club.  Members receive the stamp and inspiration cards 3 months before they are offered to the public.  Yay, how special!

Fancy Ladies Crafting

This month we wanted to design a graduation card and another multi-use card.  Using only Fun Stampers Journey card stock and ink pads & Spellbinders dies, Nancy Martin and I came up with 2 lovely cards.

I would love for you to join us at a class or event.  Please check out my facebook.
Hope to hear from you soon.  Until then:

Birthday Exploding Box

This week is my newest granddaughter's first birthday.  Mom wanted a pink polkadot theme so, the card I made for her had to have pink polkadots.  Oh yeah, and be extra girlie.  So this is what, after maaaany hours, I designed.
The hardest part of making this card was deciding what to put in it. Now that I've completed it - I love it and want to make one for every occasion I can think of.  Next is a wedding box with burlap, lace, purple & aqua.  Check back on that one
In the meantime - Be Blessed, Be Creative and Be Inspired.

Easter Trades

Easter came early this year and with it the "Trades".  Meaning a bunch of Journey Coaches & clients may choose to make up 3-4 cards all alike and then are assigned a list of traders who also design 3-4 cards. We are given addresses and a mailing date to send to the traders on our list.  We then wait breathlessly by the mailbox for our cards.  I was so fortunate to receive 4 beautiful creations.

Thank you ladies  They're beautiful!! 

I love 'em.  Soooo, let me also show you my Easter trade:
 So fun to create with my "Fun Stampers Journey stamp sets, card stock, ink pads, and supplies.  I would love to share this incredible product with you.  Contact me on Facebook.

New Year - Exciting stuff

The last few months have been wild. Going places, doing stuff, let me see if I can get us caught up.

Creative Cafe took a brief respite in December and I went to see my daughter and family in Texas.  We drove there and stopped all along the way to see unusual sights.  It was a blast.  I even gave a class in her hometown of Grapevine.  Nice people and fun time.  I was able to introduce many to Fun Stampers Journey items and our terrific Hostess / Party plan.  Many interested - YEA!

Made it home safely and got right back into the thick of things.  On January 4th the Journey Coaches came together for a Coach Meeting and a Coach trade. We were updated on the Kit of the Month Club and created some beautiful kits designed by our own Richard Garay who is the Designer and Owner of Fun Stampers Journey.

The Kit of the Month Club (KTOM) is a 6 month commitment which offers a choice of 4 cards or a 2 page scrapbook layout.  They are so fun and easy to assemble since all the ingredients are included, paper is cut, embossed and ready to complete.  The pictures and detailed instructions are also included.

Stay tuned for some photos.

These are some of the Valentine cards I sent this year.  Still trying to upload the KTOM cards - :(
