Stampin' Up! Presents: Fancy Friends Project Kit


Fancy Friends Kit

Stampin' Up! never ceases to amaze me with all that we offer!

They have come up with yet another brilliant idea! Kits that come with almost everything needed to complete the project! This is the first one that is available, and it is amazing!

If you are lucky enough to live in the Northern Colorado/Denver area, think about having a class with me and several friends in your home! We can set up a date, and everyone that you invite can order a kit and bring it with them and we can have a Kit Class!

They have not informed us how long these kits will be available, so hurry and set up a date soon so we can get the festivities on the books and get these amazing kits ordered!

Even if you're not in the Northern Colorado/Denver area, order one anyway and get to making simple cards in your own home! You could even run your own little class without me if you live too far away from me. They are very simple kits and the project is very very self explanatory! Have all of your friends order one and have a fun and crazy stamping party!

Baby Shower!

Hi all!

I have a friend who is pregnant with her 3rd child and is due in 2-1/2 short weeks! Her best friend threw a small baby shower for her this past Sunday night at Mimi's Cafe.

Here is the gift that I took with me! I stamped the outside of a bag that I had purchased at a craft store, for some one-0f-a-kind wrapping!

She is having a boy and I found the cutest little outfit, complete with this adorable jacket!

To stick with the T-Rex dinosaur theme from the outfit I used the Dinoroar stamp set from the 2012-2013 Catalog to create this card for her!

Everyone thought the outfit and card were so cute! I thought so too! We all had a blast that night, and it’s always nice to see my Holly!

Stamp Sets:

Dinoroar (Clear: $15.95 122537/Wood: $24.95 122535)

Baby Bundle (Clear: $19.95 120576/Wood: $27.95  118525)

Thanks for peeking in!

And remember! You can contact me at any time to purchase the items for anything on this blog, or to purchase any merchandise at all by heading to my store HERE!

My Convention Swaps!

Hey there!

It’s Stampin’ Time! (For those of you who went to Convention, you know that I was giggling to myself as I wrote that)

One of the most fun parts of going to the Stampin’ Up! Convention, is the swapping!

Everyone who desires to do so, makes a whole bunch of cards to ‘swap’ at convention! It is a great way to get ideas that you never would have thought of all by yourself!

Being a stay at home mom, you would think that I have a bunch of time to design, and work on swaps, but that just isn’t the case! I have a 6 year old and a 1 year old and my days are devoted to them!

The only time I really had time to work on them was at night, and I procrastinated probably a little too long, so the last 4 nights before Convention, I was up way too late trying to get them done.

They aren’t the most gorgeous cards ever, but everyone that I swapped with, seemed to like them. =) I seemed to take a more masculine road for my swaps this year, and it seems to have been a hit!

Here they are!

Convention Swaps 2012


Cardstock: Baja Breeze, Midnight Muse, Whisper White

DSP: Patio Party

Ink: Midnight Muse

Accessories & tools: Top Note Die (Big Shot), Silver Brads, 1-1/4” square punch


Cardstock: Summer Starfruit, Primrose Petals, Baja Breeze and Whisper White

DSP: Patio Party

Ink: Summer Starfruit (marker), Primrose Petals (marker), Baja Breeze (ink pad)

Accessories & Tools: Primrose Petals 3/8” Stitched Satin Ribbon, 1-1/4” square punch

Hope you like what you have seen here! If you have, and you live in the Northern Colorado area, hit me up to set up a party at your home!

Always feel free to head to my website, http://www.stampinup.net/esuite/home/melissajobuss/ and hit the Shop Now button, for some fun and exciting retail therapy!

Thanks for checking in! =)

My Convention 2012 Experience!!

One of the best things about being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is the opportunity to go to the annual Convention in Salt Lake City, UT!

I just got back from said Convention on Sunday night. The Convention was from Thursday to Saturday. We flew in on Wednesday so we could check-in to our hotel and get our convention goodies from the Convention Center!

This was the view from our hotel room on the 9th floor of the Marriot City Center, gorgeous view of the mountains!:


While we were picking up our gorgeous Summer Starfruit bags: SummerStarfruit_Convention2012Bag

(They held our stamp sets for Make & Takes, a glue stick, a lanyard for our nametag, a beautiful pen, amazing workbook, and a free Catalog and Holiday Catalog!)

we decided to go on the Home Office tour in Riverton, UT. We hopped on a bus with a bunch of other demonstrators and endured the seemingly forever ride to Riverton. When we got there, there was lots to see! Including this:

Convention 2012 Banners Home Office

Thursday, Friday and Saturday were full of classes, swapping (I’ll have a swap post here on Saturday!), absolutely adorable Make & Takes, good food and even better company!

I had a blast at this year’s convention, and learned lots and lots and lots about myself, and how to further my business!

See ya back here soon to check out my swaps!

Back From Convention 2012!

Hey everyone!

Just a couple of days ago, I got back from one of the most amazing trips I have ever taken!

I traveled to Salt Lake City with a couple of friends and fellow demonstrators to attend the Stampin' Up! Convention from July 18-21!

Had a fabulous time, ate marvelous food and learned a TON that I can incorporate into my Stampin' Up! business. A good time was definitely had by all!

I made some swaps to take with me to trade with other demonstrators, and as soon as I have a few moments of quiet (they are few and far between with a 6 year old and a 1 year old at home with me all day), I will have 2 brand new blog posts about the 2 different swaps that I took with me to Convention this year.

Be sure to check back by the end of the week to see what I have in store for all of you!
