Happy Friday

Hello and Happy Friday my sweet dumplings. I have a lovely Thank You card to share today. I have two very special friends that I made matching Thank You cards for because they supported a new endeavor that Miss Hammie has. My card base is Powder Pink. I layered a piece Garden Green cardstock and a piece of the Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper, found in the Occasions catalog, onto the card base. I used a sentiment from the Heartfelt Blooms stamp set (a Sale-a-Bration item, free with a $50.00 order) and stamped it on Whisper White cardstock. Using the Big Shot and  one of the ovals from the Stitched Shapes Framelits dies set, found in the Annual catalog, I cut out the sentiment then using the next largest die I cut out an oval of Garden Green and layered the sentiment onto it.  Since both my friends are stampers, and team mates of mine I really wanted them to be extra special. I used mini glue dots to adhere the dsp to the Garden Green layer and Tombow Multi-Purpose glue to adhere the Whisper White oval with the sentiment to the Garden Green oval. The ovals were adhered to the dsp with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I also used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the Garden Green to the card base. I absolutely love the Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series paper, its so Springy. I’m really pleased with these cards and I am sure that you, my sweet dumplings, will like them as well.


Now it’s Business Time

Sale-a-Bration ends on March 31st. New items were added and some of them might just surprise you since they were in the Occasions catalog, but TAKE NOTE for Sale-a-Bration the item numbers are different and if you use the wrong one well your order is going to be more than you thought. You can see all the Sale-a-Bration item via my Online store and by now you know that I’ll put a link below. Very soon that link is going to find a permanent home on my blog. Here is something that I wanted to share with you.


The opportunity to play with these little guys is going to be gone on March 31st.


I explained that due to popular demand the March Paper Pumpkin sold out and so new subscribers who didn’t sign up in time to get it were still going to get something special and here it is. Sign up by May 10th and get your first two kits at 50% off. I would suggest signing up by April 10th to be safe and not miss the April kit. Remember you have to be a new subscriber to get this deal (if you didn’t Miss Hammie would be signing up for an additional kit). If you sign up by April 10th I’ve promised that I will to a FB Live and we can put the April and May kits together. In Fact I shared the contents of the March kit on my FB page Robbye Stamps and tomorrow, Saturday March 17th, on that page I’m doing a FB Live to let you watch me put it together. That way you’ll see just how easy it really is, so stop by so you can watch me.


Finally, I’ve told you my story and lets just be honest if you follow me you most likely follow other Stampin’ Up demonstrators too. If so you’ve read their stories about why they joined. Most of us joined for the discount, I mean who doesn’t like to get a quality product for a little less? I know I do and I’ll bet that you do as well. If you follow me you like to craft. Some of you like to sew or crochet or knit. Here’s an opportunity to try paper crafting, but you’re thinking along with that comes selling. I’ve already told you that over 90% of all demonstrators don’t do workshops or sell except to perhaps their friends with whom they craft. You get $125.00 worth of products, that you select, for $99.00.  Plus if you join during Sale-a-Bration you can choose two additional stamp sets and the whole thing comes to you with no shipping and handling charge. Demonstrators get a 20% discount on Stampin’ Up products, they see and can order all new products firstand can work toward great incentives like trips. Being part of Stampin’ Up works for all types of paper crafters. For the scrapbookers we have beautiful 12 X 12 designer series paper and cardstock that’s perfect for scrapbooking. Most importantly if you join and its not working for you or you just don’t like it you send an email to Stampin’ Up and simply say that. No one is going to try to pressure you into staying. So why not take a “Test Drive” by signing up. If you decide to quit you still have $125.00 worth of products to craft with. I would love for you to join in the fun of Stampin’ Up and I would love for you to join my team. There will be a link for you to join my team below. This link will soon have a permanent home here on my blog.

Well that’s it for me dumplings, have a fun-filled weekend,  Happy Saint Patrick’s Day tomorrow. Don’t forget my FB Live tomorrow at 1:00PM see how easy Paper Pumpkin is and then come back here and use the link to subscribe.

Blogging Fun – damentals

I had said or rather told myself that this blog would be devoted solely to my crafting, but WordPress has a couple of different ideas. To help me learn how to put together a blog they have given me little “tasks” .  Today’s , well not really today’s, task is to write a post based on the prompt found in the Daily Post.  The prompt was “Notorious”.  Several things and people come to mind when I hear or see the word Notorious. For example Duran Duran singing, “No, no, Notorious notorious” , The Notorious BIG dressed in a bespoke suit wearing a fedora. Recently however it brings to mind a tiny, almost frail looking, woman in black robes wearing glasses and a lace collar. None other than Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, affectionately known to her legion of fans as The Notorious RBG.


What makes Justice Ginsburg notorious? Her detractors would say falling asleep at what most would consider inopportune times. Lets get real people, if you’re bored you’re bored and it really doesn’t matter who is speaking.  I want to meet that rare individual that can say they have never dozed off for a minute or two while listening to someone drone on and on about something they cared absolutely nothing about. If you can find them I will personally draft, sign and circulate a petition to Pope Francis to start the sainthood procedures.  So forget the whining about her taking a little nap.  If you want to know the real deal ask those that look up to her, the little girls that say I want to be a Supreme Court Justice when I grow up because of her. The young female lawyers that think “RBG has a point, why can’t there be a nine female justices Supreme Court, no one ever complain about there being a nine male justices Supreme Court.” Google Ruth Bader Ginsburg quotes and prepare to be blown away by her intelligence and candor.  Justice Ginsburg is a straight shooter and if you don’t like it , too bad. She is the definition of Notorious and long may she reign. And you know what? I’m even willing to bet that when she’s not too busy trying to apply the words of the framers of the Constitution to today’s issues she probably likes to craft.
