Stampin’ Up! Holiday Shares 2016

It’s Time for my 2016 Holiday Catalog Product Shares

Holiday catalog 2016

Why participate in shares? Shares are a way to sample the new Designer Series Papers, Ribbons, and Embellishments at a fraction of what it would cost you to purchase all of them yourself.  And the nice thing is I do all the ordering, cutting, counting and re-packaging for you!

How Shares Work

  • Simply  EMAIL ME ( to reserve your spot in a share.  When your share fills, I will bill you via PayPal, or you may send a check. Per Stampin’ Up! guidelines I cannot send out invoices before August 25th.
  • On September 1st, I will place the orders for all filled shares.  Once I receive the products, I will cut, count, measure and package up your goodies pronto!
  • Your papers will be lovingly wrapped and identified to protect them; ribbons will be rolled; and embellishments will be placed into small plastic bags.  Once this task is completed, your shares will be sent out via the US Postal Service.
  • Please note my paper shares are 6″ x 12″.  A lot of people do 6″ x 6″, so you are getting twice as much paper with my shares.

StampinUp 3x3 card made with Cookie-Cutter Christmas, designed by demo Beth McCullough. Please see more card and gift ideas at #StampingMom

We had a wonderful week at our Family Bible camp in Okoboji!  I love spending a week away from daily life and have time to focus on God, our marriage family.  The best part is, I got to bring my kids home with me!  We are a family of five again until college starts in another week.  It also means my design assistant Abby, and very sweet daughter, is on the job again!

Okoboji 2016

The picture above is Abby, Superman and Keegan tubing in Okoboji. Can you guess who is standing up with this arms out on the back of the tube? Yep, it’s Keegan.  Ryan was the lifeguard on the boat and he wasn’t happy about his little brother breaking the rules.  Keegan kind of looks like he should be on the front of the Titanic.

When I got home, there was a box of goodies from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog waiting for me.  If you don’t have a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator already, I would love to be your demo.  I have a stack of Holiday catalogs waiting to be sent out to my customers, so please let me know if I can send you one.

I am one of the September designers for Craft Project Central so I’ve been stamping all weekend, but it’s all things I can’t show you yet.  Here’s my quick 3″x 3″ warm up card I made today.  Do you do warm up cards?  Sometimes I need to start small and get the stamping mojo flowing again.

Olson Reunion windmills-1

We recently had our Olson family reunion and I thought some of you might enjoy seeing what the beautiful Iowa country side looked like on our way to the reunion.  You can tell from this picture that Iowa is windy and we don’t always have a ton of cars on the road.

Olson Reunion-danish windmill

This is the Danish Windmill in Elk Horn, Iowa.  My Grandma was Danish and I remember coming here many times as a kid. This is the only authentic (built in Denmark), working windmill in the USA.

Here’s some of the cousins getting John Deere Gator rides around the farm.  As you can tell, there is a big age difference between the cousins!  It was a really fun day seeing all my Dad’s siblings, and their kids and grandkids.

Hope you’re having a good week!
