A Bronze Elite Star Celebration!

Bronze-eliteIt's celebration time as one of my Stampin' Up! Stars Team Members has promoted to Bronze Elite!

Based on the orders she has placed, Carol Peterson now holds the Bronze Elite title and I recently sent her a little gift!

Bronze-elite-starCarol is a hobby demonstrator on my team and makes some beautiful cards to send to her family and friends. 

Carol and I met online as she was a frequent visitor to my LIVE videos on Facebook.  It was a blessing when she decided to purchase the Starter Kit through me and join my team.  We have gotten to know each other better through our virtual team meetings and crafting sessions and have lots of fun visiting, talking about our families, sharing book ideas, and of course, stamping and crafting ideas!

If you'd ever like to join our community, we'd welcome you with open arms!  You can read more about it here.

Thanks for tuning in as we celebrate Stars Team Member, Carol Peterson, Bronze Elite.

Fluttering Into March!


We are fluttering into March longing for sunshine, flowers, and butterflies, and what better way to do that than to craft with beautiful butterflies! 

Stampin' Up! will introduce a new bundle as an early release from the 2021-2022 annual catalog. It will be available to you beginning tomorrow, March 2, 2021 in the Butterfly Bouquet promotion! 


Look at this beautiful Butterfly Brilliance Bundle!  That stamp set is ONE, SINGLE, Background stamp!  And, the big butterflies have a die that cuts them all at once!  Plus, look at those fun texture dies and those mini butterflies!


10% bundled savings.

Includes the Butterfly Brilliance cling stamp set and brilliant wings dies (see details above); early-release bundle from 2021 Annual Catalog available during the Butterfly Bouquet promotion.

There are two packages of paper that are exclusive to this promotion.  While the stamp and die bundle will be available in the new annual catalog in MAY 2021, the papers will not be in the catalog and are only available in this promotion while supplies last!



Exclusive Designer Series Paper; available only during the Butterfly Bouquet promotion and while supplies last.

Some people call a group of butterflies a kaleidoscope, and that's what you'll get with the Butterfly Bijou 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper. Choose from glorious butterfly patterns in shades of aqua, pink, and yellow or watercolored patterns that coordinate beautifully. You can't go wrong with these unforgettable patterns.

  • 2 sheets
  • 12" x 12"

Get it all!

Stars Team Member Testimonial

Why I Continue to Be Member of the Stars Team
Kristen Martin

It’s never been a question for me. I have the best supporting team any crafter would need. I’ve been a hobby demonstrator for most of my time, but I’ve also learned that when the time is right my business will blossom.

Lisa has supported me no matter what my status is. Any questions I’ve had, she's always guided me to solve it. Lisa has given me lots of opportunities to SHINE as a crafter and share many projects. Over the 10 years we have grown close and I consider her a friend. I’m super grateful for the friendships I’ve made being a STAR!

It's Get & Go time with Stampin' Up!  Join us!
