NC Demos August Blog Hop & Happy 21st (Stamp-aversary)

Welcome to the NC Demo Blog Hop for August.  

My name is Frances Wagner and I am from Vero Beach, FL but an original member of NC SU Demo group. I love doing this blog hop with my NC SU Demo friends, they are so talented.

If you are hopping along with us you just came from Jo Anne Hewins blog where I know you loved her project.  Our theme this month is "Scenic View!" projects.  I love the possibilities, I have used the Waterfront card before on my blog with a calendar easel card here but decided to step it up a bit. 

I used the Waterfront stamp set along with the Timeless Tropical stamp sets together.


Below is a peek on the inside.

Below a picture of the full inside. 

Do you ever open one of your stamp sets and find a stamp missing?  Well that is what happened to me today.  I can't find the sun stamp so I punched a circle with a retired punch an sponged the sun on the paper.  That worked, I bet the sun stamp is in another stamp set,  I may have used the last time I stamped with it.  At least it was a circle and easy to duplicate.  :) 

New sun image sponged on card stock.


Happy Stamp-aversary to ME!!
August 31, 1999 was the day I signed up to be a
Stampin’ UP! Demonstrator. I joined to get the discount and never thought about having a team and I have never looked back or never regretted it. It is so much more than selling stamps, it is the relationships and friendships between my customers and team members. I cherish both groups of women that have come into my life and I would have never known most of them if it wasn’t for this little business.
For a thank you in honor of my 21st Anniversary, between now and August 31, 2020 at midnight, I am rewarding all of my online orders ($50 or more) with free Stampin’ Blends!!!

Stamp'n Cut & Emboss Machine

Have you seen the New Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine? This is a photo of it and I have had mine for a month now and love it. Customers can purchase it September 1st. 

 There is more good news it cost $120 and if you want to get it for $99 with free shipping you can add it for your Stampin' UP! Demo kit and spend the extra $5 on a little something else. When you get your kit you get $125 in products from either catalog and Free shipping. In September Stampin' UP! is adding two extra stamp sets and 8 card kits and a package of rhinestones to make with your new stamps and kits. It is a great time to test drive the demo kit and get your discount every day. Let me know if you want more details.

I just participated in an on line #suleaderssummit for 2.5 days and it was amazing.  We had many many demonstrators across the globe particiWatrpating.  I saw many friends on line with me learning together.  I would love to have you on my team and join all the fun.


  1. Frances, your card makes me want to be on a beach somewhere, anywhere, lol! And congrats on your anniversary! I'm approaching my 23rd year and I've love every bit of it. And I hope you find your stamp!! I can't tell you how many times I've done the same thing.

    1. Thank you Toni, I am glad I am not alone with lost stamps. I can even think about not being a demonstrator.

  2. Love the use of the dies here to give it the lacy look. So pretty.

  3. Awesome card, Frances! I know that whoever gets it will be delighted! Thank you for sharing!

  5. Frances - First, congratulations on your 21st anniversary with SU!! And, also thank you for sharing your card. The beautiful scene makes me feel that I should have a very fruity, tropical drink in my hand poolside!

  6. Thank you Laurie, this was a fun card to make.

  7. Love it! I love the background stamping. It just all comes together perfectly. Wish I was there!
