Poinsettia Burst

Hello everyone, I hope today finds you safe. The people of Florida have been on my mind for a couple days now.. I hope everyone is in a safe place.

It is feeling a little fall like here, so I decided to stay in today and play with my Fun Stampers Journey kit.  

I did not think I would really be interested in getting any die bundles, because I have a Cricut machine and I can cut most anything, but when I started playing with the Poinsettia Burst (# BD-0295) stamp and die bundle I fell in love. I used clear pigment ink and stamped the poinsettias and then used white embossing powder to heat emboss and I LOVED them..

I think I am going to have to get some more of these bundles!
You can see this bundle as well as many more on my website.  There is soo many wonderful, fun products carried by Fun Stampers Journey.. check them out in the link below

enjoy the rest of your day..

Fun STtampers Journey promo

Hi paper crafters!! Cathy here to share a promo with you!!
Have you ever thought about becoming a Fun Stampers Journey Coach??

Well, this is a perfect time to consider it. We are having an awesome  promotion this month only for anyone who signs up to be a Journey Coach.

 What is a Journey Coach?   Well, Journey Coach is someone who signs up to be an independent distributor of Fun Stampers Journey products.  But, wait.  You do not have to sell a thing!  That is right!  Not one thing.  All you are required to do is purchase or sell $150.00 of products each quarter.  That is right only $50.00 a month!   Who doesn't spend at least that much on craft supplies a month?  That is the lowest requirement in the industry!  That's it.  That is all you have to do.  Of course, if you want to turn it into a business that is fine too, but it is not a requirement.  You would be considered a hobbyist and would receive all the benefits and discounts any other coach would receive! 

Sound good??? I recently signed up and have been a grand time playing with their products.. I will be posting a video soon of some products and projects..

For more info, head to my website. or message me, would be happy to help out.

have a great day
