Farewell to the Occasions mini!

Today is the last day of the occasions mini catalog, and it just occurred to me that I haven’t posted many of the cards I’ve made lately, so here are a few cards featuring Occasions mini stamp sets that you’ll want to order by today if you like them!! Just contact me ASAP!  You can also shop online, just search for me as your demonstrator (Krissie in WA) so you can get preferred pricing on the website store!

This first one I call “Monkey Spinner” because its a spinner card created with pennies!  The monkey spins along the track, its really a cute card to see in action!  There are many tutorials out there, but this is the one I used, here (Youtube video).   The card features “Fox and Friends” stamp set which is available in Clear Mount and Wood Mount.  Today is the last day you can get this cutie stamp set full of animals.

Also included on this card are the following:

Paper: Sage Shadow, Whisper White, To The Nines Specialty DSP, Close to Cocoa

Ink: Close to Cocoa

Accessories: Scallop Circle Punch, 1-3/8″ Circle Punch, Word Window Punch, dimensionals

Stamp Sets: Fox & Friends, A Little Birthday Cheer

Here’s a Mother’s Day Flower Pot card, which are really fun!  It features the Well Scripted stamp set, that also will be unavailable after today!  Some of the accessories on this card are already sold out unfortunately but I did want to showcase this card style and a link for how to re-create it from Splitcoaststampers.  You can use any sort of flower, we have other felt flowers, and you can punch your own with big shot dies, our flower punches and more 🙂

Paper: Dusty Durango, Sweet Pea (Sold Out)

Accessories: Sweet Pea Felt Flowers (Sold Out)

Scaling Back, but still a Stampin’ Up demonstrator!

I want to thank you all for your support and participation in my classes and stamp camps!

I am discontinuing my subscription to my demonstrator business web site, which means that purchasing from me online won’t be available unless you do a search for me on (search for Krissie in WA, I’m the only one~). However I will keep my Strictly Stampin’ blog ( and my Facebook Fan page, so you can keep up with the projects I make and all Stampin’ Up specials.

I will also be discontinuing my hostess club after it finishes in May and monthly stamp camps and classes held in my home but would love to have them for you and your friends whenever you are interested in doing them. If you ever need anything, you’ll always be able to purchase. Just give me a call or email me. Current offerings will always be available online, but you can come visit and take a look at a catalog too. 🙂

This is just a small scaling back on a personal level so that I have more time for my full-time job, part-time schooling and family life, and can better focus on the part of Stampin’ Up that I enjoy most, the wonderful creative outlet and fun hobby it provides me.

Please don’t hesitate to gather the girls together though, I’m more than willing to teach you what I know about stamping and provide a relaxing creative afternoon. I’d just like to do it more on your terms than on mine. 🙂

My last official stamp camp in my home is May 15 (also the last hostess club meeting). I may have one here an there throughout the year but it will be a lot less of a regular basis.
