NC Demos November 2021 Blog Hop – More than Christmas

 Good evening my name is Frances Wagner, I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving?  Welcome to the November  NC SU Demo Blog Hop! This month we are featuring stamp sets that are typically holiday sets and we are going to show you other ideas of how you can use them at other times of the year.  You may have hopped over from Amanda Howard's blog if not be sure to go back during your hop and check our what fun ideas Amanda has for you.

I chose to use the Joyful Life on page 63 of the July-Dec Mini Catalog.   I love that little bear for Christmas but when I saw our theme I remembered that he had a rabbit in his basket.  I thought I would share some new ideas with you. 

The Christmas card I made earlier in the season.

Spring Bear with  Rabbit- so for this one I just changed my color scheme to spring colors.  Easy Peasy....  Also you could use it for an Easter card.


 I can also see that same bear and rabbit and the basket filled with hearts for Valentines day.  I love it when I come up with something on my own.  I am usually a caser.  :)

Also some of you may know I had heel surgery recently and a lot of my stamping supplies are upstairs and it is hard to go up and down stairs.  So the accessories may not be the best color to go with the card stock and ink...  I love blog hopping with my NC Demo friends so I had to use what I had.  Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to hop over to Sue Root's blog for more fabulous ideas. 

Don't forget this is the last week through November 30th to take advantage of the FABULOUS KIT SALE $75 FOR $125 IN PRODUCT OF YOUR CHOICE.  CLICK HERE TO JOIN MY TEAM. I would love to have you on my WagStampers team.  You can join from anywhere in the US.  You do not have to live next door.  I bring 22 years of experience as a demonstrator and would help you along the way. Contact me if you have any questions

Greetings from Maui DAY 1-

 We are excited to be going to Maui on our first incentive trip! 

I can't believe after 21 years with Stampin' UP! I finally earned an incentive trip.  WOW IS ALL I CAN SAY!  I actually never tried to earn the trips, I thought there were not attainable for me. However I was wrong. We would not be here if it was not for my wonderful team WagStampers, my customers and family and friends support. Thank you so much.

A few pics from our first day!

On board of American Airlines from West Palm Beach to Dallas then to Maui.

Just landed in Maui.  (yes it is windy) :)


In Maui I found another Florida Sunshine SU Demonstrator, Bethany Barnard we arrived in the same plane from Dallas.


Look what we found on our door!  What a welcome!


Our first "Pillow Gift" on our bed.  We were greeted with this cute Maui beach hat and a round beach towel that has pineapples and the SU logo on it.  Next time I go to the beach I will take a photo of it spread out and show you. I love that we get "Pillow Gift" surprises each night.


Our first sunset this view is from our balcony.

This was the first night at the Meet and Greet Aloha Carnival.  Jennifer Hill (left) found  Bethany Barnard and I.  What a fun night and yummy desserts.



They had such pretty table decorations.


This was a pineapple dessert cooked in a coconut shell. Yummy!

 Stay tuned for more Maui photos.

Merry Christmas & Sneak Peek ~Sweet Strawberry Bundle

Merry Christmas to each of you that come to my blog.  I appreciate your interest and support.   I have a sample below using the new Sweet Strawberry Bundle to share with you. 

What is your inspiration for your stamping projects? Last week my friend Penny Whittington stopped by to pick up her stamp order and she brought me some delicious fudge in this adorable cloth bag. When I saw the strawberries on front, I knew I had to pull out my new stamp set Sweet Strawberry plus new punch to coordinate. Sweet Strawberry Bundle #156214 $32.25

Below is the cloth bag with the fudge in it.  I love that she tied some of our ribbon around it for a festive touch. 



 I pulled out the colors that were in the bag to use for stamping. Night of Navy, Real Red, Garden Green, Very Vanilla

I added the small strawberry flowers and stamped those in Memento Black ink and colored in with the Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends Markers. The bottom strawberry I stamped on Very Vanilla card stock with Real Red ink and the top strawberry I stamped on Real Red card stock using Real Red ink. (to show the difference)

So what do you think?  I love how it came together.
