Technology is a beautiful thing!

That’s what they say, but I must admit I’ve never been real comfortable with it. That is hurting me and I need to make a change. I’m still a bit old school. I have classes at my home for small groups, which is not a bad thing. The problem is it us difficult for me to help everyone. Some customers need more time and help. Some have more experience. No one reads directions!

I would really like to begin weekly tutorials online in 2023. It really is a more effective way to help more people. The ones who need more time can stop the video or reverse and replay. I must take the plunge no matter how nervous it makes me!

Class last Saturday was successful with nine participants. We made four cards. Some designs were CASed (copy and shared) and all turned out nicely. Here are the four:

My next class is early October where we will make two Halloween and two Fall cards. It’s a learning experience for me each time, just like the participants.

There’s one more day to get your September Weekly Deal for this week. Tomorrow new ones will be posted for the next week and then September Weekly Deals ends. Go HERE to see what’s being discounted!

Happy September Promotions!

It’s a new month. Time is flying, isn’t it? Stampin’ Up has many new promotions or discounts for the month. First, is Perfect Partners.

Some things are great on their own but become epic when they are paired with something else: cereal and milk, toast and butter, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. We may be biased, but our favorite combo is our stamp sets and dies—and that’s what the Perfect Partners promotion is all about! 

We created six new dies that coordinate with stamp sets in the 2022–2023 Annual Catalog and the July–December 2022 Mini Catalog. These coordinating dies will only be available during this promotion and will not be offered in any catalog.  

These stamp sets and dies are available separately or as a bundle. By buying the bundle, you and will save 10% off the retail price. 

Put these wonderful stamp sets and dies together for more paper crafting fun! Order now! You can only get these dies during September or while supplies last so don’t wait. Purchase HERE!

Another exciting promotion offered during this month only are September discounts. Every week in September new products will be discounted. Go HERE to see what products were discounted today. Be sure to check back each week in September for new discounts!

A new month also means a new Thank You Gift for a $75 to $149.99 order through my online store. The Host Code for this month is


Be sure and use this Host Code when ordering so I can send your free gift. The gift comes from me directly, not from Stampin’ Up! This month’s Thank You Gift is:

Happy September! Happy Savings!

Classes Coming!

I have been a busy girl! Since I decided to sell retired products, I have been preparing, posting, invoicing and shipping. This has been very successful! I am selling in three Facebook groups, but you can contact me at if you would like to know what is still left. I have stamps sets, dies, punches, paper, designer series paper, and more. I will do this every new catalog cycle! All products are retired, no longer in catalogs, in great condition or new! I would like to include some other sites away from Facebook, but am not there yet.

Some people have requested Classes so I am getting some together. These are for local people right now. I’ve yet to get comfortable with online tutorials, but will! Classes currently scheduled:

General Make and Take with Niecy, Saturday, September 17th, at 10:30. The cost is $15 for four cards. (Regular customers who spend $40 before tax and shipping from the catalog are free.) All supplies are provided along with refreshments. I must cap my classes at my home at eight, so if others are interested, I will add more and/or evening classes.

Halloween/Fall Card Fest with Niecy, Saturdays, October 1st and 22nd, Thursday, October 6th at 6:00 pm, and Tuesday, October 22nd at 6:00pm.

Christmas Card Fest with Niecy, dates and times to be announced. If you are interested, please send an email or comment here and I can give you updated information as it comes available.

Don’t forget Sale-A-Bration is still running through August 31st or when supplies run out! Go HERE to see what you can order FREE after your $50 or $100 catalog purchase before tax and shipping. Look around at products and shop at!

Health – I’m getting better. I still have a lingering cough since having Covid in June and stitches are coming out of my finger tomorrow, so the hand surgery is almost behind me. I haven’t had a lot of energy (being retired is helpful) and really need to get back to activity. It’s hot here in Arizona, so outside activities right now are almost impossible. I look forward to some cooler weather! Finally, I will be having another oral surgery, but that hasn’t been scheduled yet. Oh, the fun!

Life Happens and Retired Items on Sale

What a rough few weeks it’s been for me. I decided to schedule classes, do some online tutorials, and work a bit harder. I was excited about creativity!

Then, Covid hit for the second time this year. I made it through that with minor symptoms, but spent a week in bed, for the most part. While this was happening, I began to have trouble with one finger. A chronic infection started on my right hand. After three rounds of antibiotics, my surgeon at Mayo Clinic said I may lose my finger if he did not operate. So, I was in the hospital the next day! I am now recovering and able to use my hand a bit more, although it will be a couple weeks more until the stitches are out. I am on the mend!

I do plan to move forward with scheduling now. I hesitate making videos due to the state of my hands. They look arthritic and I sometimes have a bit trouble manipulating small materials when creating. Others tell me to not let it stop me. It is another way to show anyone can make cards and some will relate. I am going to listen to that advice.

I also sell my retired Stampin’ Up! supplies second hand. I do this to purchase newer sets and products. I am attaching a spreadsheet showing what I still have available to sell. You my reach me at with any questions. I take PayPal and Zelle. Thank you!
