You Inspire Me

I am fortunate to work with the 2012 Teacher of the Year.  Becky teaches Comm Arts, Leadership and coaches several sports.  Becky is an amazing teacher, I have first had knowledge of her love for teaching as she taught my oldest daughter.   I could not have thought of a more deserving person to be named as Teacher of the Year.  Becky – you inspire me.

I have to tell you though, this card was completely CASE’d from Shelli Gardner, co-founder and CEO of Stampin’ Up!  CASE is when you completely copy a card from another creative person.  I love the simplicity and the profound impact this card has – just like Becky.  I used a technique I have never done before.  I splattered ink using the Color Spritzer Tool.  *TIP* practice on a scrap piece of paper to see how hard to squeeze or how close to hold the tool for the spray pattern you want.

A note from my heart

With a renewed energy and spirit, I am so excited to be writing this post.  For the first time in five years, I have a plan, a goal, and oh my goodness is it within reach!  Six years have passed since I joined the Stampin’ Up! family to purchase the product, for myself as a hobby demonstrator at a discount (who does not love a discount?) never thinking of making a career.

Over the last six months, I have begun to set a plan in motion – sharing what I love to do.  My plan is really more a mission; a mission to share what I love, by creating handmade gifts from the heart to be shared by others.  I have already begun this first step by holding monthly stamping clubs where we come together and create at least three projects.   If you have not joined us before, you really are missing out!  We laugh, share, eat, create and laugh some more.

Inkyfingrsstamping.com has also been created as a place for me to share ideas, tips, tricks, and other news or information.  Inky Fingers Stamping team meetings have been planned and will be a place for us to meet share business tips, learn a new techniques to share with our customers and friends, to laugh, share, create and laugh some more.  These gatherings will be open to anyone on my Inky Fingers Stamping team whether you are a hobby demonstrator or if you are wanting build a solid business.

In order to see my mission succeed, your assistance is needed.  Although, I have the total support of my family – I cannot do this without you.  YOU are the crucial piece of my plan needed to succeed.  I specially choose the month of February to publicly launch and share my plan of success due to the fantastic opportunities Stampin’ Up! has extended over the next 60  days.

In order to reach my goal, I am asking you to take a look at your calendar for the month of February and see if you have a date we can get together with a few of your friends to laugh, share, and create.  As a bonus to you and your friends, for every $50 purchases (before tax and S/H) you will be able to choose a FREE item from the Sale-A-Brations catalog.   As a hostess (or a single ordered) at $150 you can earn hostess benefits of additional FREE product, the CUTEST dang shopping bag and a special gift from me.

I have also implemented an Inky Fingers Stamping reward program.  After earning ten tokens, you will receive a FREE stamp set of ANY value as a way for me to say thank you for your continued support.  Earning reward tokens is easy; earn one token for every $50.  To say thank you for helping me to a solid start to success, I will give you TWO tokens for any order you place between January 29th and February 15th.

As my friend, I appreciate the continued support you have given to me over the years and the support you will continue to give me.  It is because of you, I am able to take this next step and know I will be successful in my path.

Happy Creating!
