I'm also sharing a few pictures of card making on Stampin' Up!'s May 21st Day of Service in my Stampin' Peace Studio. We had a great time and now have lots of cards to give and send as we do our part to #sharesunshine during this pandemic. Thanks, my daughter Andrea, nieces Alison and Avery Benner, and my sister Joan Benner for participating in SU!'s Day of Service with me! You are SU! Difference Makers!
Joan learned how to color on stamps with Stampin' Write Markers when wanting to have more than one ink color on one stamped image. She was quite impressed with herself and excited about how her palm trees turned out.
Be a Difference Maker. Make a card. Send a card. You'll be sharing sunshine and happiness!

Songs are really just another way of storytelling. This song - Love, Live & Share It Today - tells a bit about Stampin' Up!'s 30 year history and why we at Stampin' Up! do what we do. It's about so much more than stamps, ink, and paper, and it's not just a card.
Listen and enjoy!

Last week I hosted a Leap Day Super Saturday Event for my Merry Stampers Team at my Stampin' Peace Studio. What fun we all had! Each attendee received a Stampin' Up! swag bag filled with lots of Stampin' Up! products and themed project packets. We enjoyed Prize Patrol and All-Attendee Giveaways just like Stampin' Up! events. Lunch of a baked potato bar, salad, and cookies was served. Team members enjoy stamping, creating, and learning together as they completed loads of creative projects I designed for them including Witty-cisms cards, Best Dressed Fun Fold
cards, and Tropical Oasis cards, collage, welcome pineapple home decor, and a travel journal/mini memory book. The BEST part of the day, though, was all of us enjoying friendships new and old, the laughter (there was lots), and the sharing. I can't wait to host another event like this!

While this was my first Merry Stampers Team Event in my new Stampin' Peace Studio, it is just one of many events I have hosted for my team in my 11 1/2 years as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. I began my business in Cincinnati, Ohio, so have many team members in that area but many in other cities and states as well. In summer 2018, I moved to Columbus, Ohio, to be closer to family. I've been able to maintain and grow my team and my own business with this move and looking forward to expanding both even more as I am now have made my Stampin' Up! business a full-time career.
I'd love to have you join my Merry Stampers Team, and now during Sale-A-Bration is THE BEST TIME to join. In addition to the already awesome Starter Kit Deal of $125 worth of SU! product of your choice for just $99 & free shipping, you'll also receive FREE a Mini Paper Trimmer, 48 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper Sampler, and a Stamp Set of your choice - any price - when you join my team by March 31st. Now that is a savings. From then on there is no further obligation, but if you choose to remain a demonstrator, you'll enjoy discounts of at least 20% on all your purchases, commissions on customer orders if you choose to start a business. No matter your reason for joining, I'll help you make the most of your Stampin' Up! demonstratorship. Contact me to discuss the opportunity or to sign up or visit my website maryknabe.stampinup.net.

I don' t know about you, but I just can't get enough of Christmas...the most wonderful time of the year in my opinion. I love the decorating, baking, and, of course, the stamping and crafting. Stampin' Up! now has even more wonderful products for us to create with. The Christmas Time is Here Suite is so beautiful with its rich colors, elegant gold accents, and stunning detailed imagery. The Christmas Rose Stamp Set and Dies can be used throughout the year as well for various occasions such as Mother's Day, birthdays, thank you notes, and more. Who doesn't love beautiful roses any time of year? We also have a beautiful and trendy bracelet - a gift for yourself or a Stampin' Up! friend!
I'll be hosting a special Christmas Time is Here virtual event via Facebook Live for everyone who purchases the Christmas Time is Here Suite, Christmas Rose Bundle, Christmas Time is Here Designer Series Paper, or any part of the Suite from me this month. This event will take place in a private Facebook Group on Monday, December 2nd at 7pm EST and will be able to be viewed by participants for weeks and months to come. We'll craft and stamp together, and I'll be giving away prizes throughout the event that evening.
The Christmas Time is Here Suite products are available for a limited time only- just through November 30th! Order yours before they are gone! Then join me for an exclusive Facebook Live Party celebrating 'Christmas Time Is Here" on Monday, December 2nd.
Below are photos of just 2 of the MANY project tutorials you will receive FREE for purchasing the Christmas Time is Here Suite, Christmas Rose Bundle, or Christmas Time is Here Designer Series Paper from me by November 30th. PLUS, you'll receive an invitation to my Christmas Time is Here Virtual Party on December 2nd. Can't make it to the party? No worries, you can view the video for weeks and months to come in the private Facebook group.
If you missed my November 7th Facebook Live on my Stampin' Peace VIP Group demonstrating how to make a Vertical Joy Fold Card and my No-Fold Note Card, you can see it here now.
Christmas Time is Here Products and coordinating SU! products used include:
Mosaic Tile Designs have been around for ages. Andrea and I saw several mosaic works of art in Rome, our favorite being the inside of the dome in St. Peter's Basilica. I've never seen something so beautiful made of mosaic tiles, very tiny mosaic tiles of so many different colors and finishes. I was in awe. These photos don't do it justice, but the art in the entire inside of the dome is all mosaic tiles.
Stampin' Up! has gotten in on the mosaic style of arts and crafts with its Mosaic Mood Suite. I recently did a Facebook Live featuring the Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper and several coordinating products. I hope you are inspired by my demonstrations and hope you'll join me in future Facebook Lives for more creative inspiration.
My Facebook Live Schedule:
Tuesdays, 7pm EST on Stamp 'n Scrap with Mary Knabe. *Please LIKE my page.

What a wonderful couple days I had this weekend. It started waking up on Friday morning to blue skies and bright sunshine, something we haven't seen much of in Ohio this spring. Such a beautiful way to welcome in summer. Saturday was just as beautiful, today, Sunday is our third straight day of sunshine and blue skies!
This weekend was also made wonderful with the visit of my friends Susi Brunk and Sherrie Parker, my Stampin' Up! upline and second upline. We shared dinner, wine, friendship, and laughs. They spent the night at my house Friday, then we all attended the Stampin' Up! Ohio Leadership and Business Gathering on Saturday hosted by Jessica Werner, Demonstrator Development Manager of USA Northeast Area and Cori Hancock of Stampin' Up! who oversees all of the DDM's in the East Region. How wonderful it is that they were able to bring together so many Ohio demonstrators. O-H-I-O!
Highlights of the event included leadership activities and business demonstrations by several fabulous Ohio demonstrators on topics such as increasing sales, finding new customers, building and growing a team, increasing retention of team members, and using social media in our businesses. I'm grateful for the many informative and motivating presentations, and am spending some time today working on plans to implement some of these new practices. Of course, the best part of any Stampin' Up! event is reuniting with demonstrators I don't see too often and meeting new people in my Stampin' Up! family. Making connections, building relationships, and learning and growing together is such a big part of what I enjoy as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator.
