Now that’s a beautiful bunch of items on sale this week.

I have to share with you that I recently got to see the new Holiday Catalog. WOW. Ok WOW!! Seriously-You will want/NEED these items from this New catalog that will go Live in September. I am so excited since there is so much Christmas/Holiday items. Of course there is Autumn/Halloween/Thanksgiving too but Far more items this year for the Holidays. There is One particular Autumn set that holds a place in my creative little heart. It involves Acorns. You know from past Blog posts about my sales of Acorns. Oh so cute. Do I have you interested?

Here is what I would do Right now:

1. Contact me soon for a Stampin’ Up Workshop. You will want to be a Hostess. It’s time to plan a fun workshop with your family and friends. I do travel up to 3 hrs from Lake Geneva, WI in any direction for a Workshop- so Contact me soon.

2. If you can’t meet with me-have a Catalog party with me instead. I will include some fun samples for you to pass around to your friends to see first hand the cute! Plus-You, the Hostess will be able to keep them as a little thank you.

3. You can certainly purchase ONLINE with me 24-7. Be your own Hostess with an order of $150.00 or more. Or maybe you would like to shop just a little with a $25.00 order. No Problem I appreciate all your orders.

4. Perhaps it’s time to be a Demonstrator. Maybe the reason is getting items at a discount, or seeing items, catalogs, sets, papers, creative tools before any of your customers do. How about getting income just for being your own Hostess. Maybe you would like to have a Team under you. Perhaps earning the Global Trip to Phuket, Thailand 2017. Now that should get you excited.

I would Love to have you join my team-The Dairy Best Stampers. Today is as good as any. You will get the New Current Catalog and a pack of them to share along with The Holiday Catalog as well as an amazing kit of stamps and supplies YOU pick out.

No matter what You choose,

I am Grateful and Blessed that you picked Me-Laura H. H. Zaraza as your Demonstrator. You can always contact me anytime if you have questions.



Basket Card


It’s good to acknowledge that someone did make your day. Why not do it in style.


Once again, a very useful die and what a great card it makes. This was not my idea but when I originally got this particular die, I cut up pieces to see what else could be made with it. It’s much more than creating a basket.

The best part I used in this-Our New Whisper White Thick Card Stock. It is a perfect base for cards. You know it will be just what you need for your Holiday cards. Here’s my sales pitch-“YOU WILL NEED” this Whisper White Thick Card Stock for your present and future cards! Just saying!!


It’s all about the placement of the scoring and folds.

Here are the supplies I used:

Dragonfly Love

A little know fact. I love Dragonflies. I like butterflies, but I love Dragonflies. They make me happy.

About 15 years ago, I was at Leadership in Florida in February. Managers galore, we were all ready to take our seats for an outdoor lunch when all of a sudden a HUGE, I am talking, over 5″-6″ dragonfly, landed on my shoulder. I was not scared. That was THE biggest bug I have ever seen but I knew it was harmless. Looking back, How I wish we all had camera phones back then. I could have had someone text me it so that years later I could show my kids the picture. It’s possible my kids might have been grossed out or impressed, hard to say at their age!

Little know facts about Dragonflies:

They eat mosquitoes and other icky pests like wasps. That alone is important to me.

They are fast fliers.

They live long lives, some even recorded up to 5 years.

They have selective attention span- stay focused on their prey.

They come in many sizes and colors.

And they are just cool looking!

You can attract them through having a pond, or other water feature. Just be aware that Mosquitoes like these water features too.

Now, on to Dragonfly cards:

Thank-You-Dragonfly card

How easy is this card. Simple and clean. Just two colors, Daffodil Delight and Blackberry Bliss.

Now, lets step up this card with layers and Bling.


I stamped another Dahlia on scrap white C.S. and then cut out the center.


I layered with dimensionals and added Bling.


Love it! Love it so much-it’s already has ink all over it. This particular stamp set (Awesomely Artistic) is my new Favorite.

Ice Cream, Ice Cream!

I will admit, I hear someone yell “Ice Cream”, and I immediately hear-Eddie Murphy Scream it in my head. Always!!! (Thanks Eddie!!!!)

Do you remember that Ice Cream bit? Loved listening to his early comedic days right out of Saturday Night Live. But, I digress, back to Ice Cream.

This New stamp set Sprinkles of Life will have you making Ice Cream Cones, dip upon dip, card after card. But there is sooo much more than that in this set. Think Project Life ideas too. But an ice cream themed card-it tops my list of the first thing I made with it.

I made this fun Mini Treat Bag for my Open House to show the versatility of the punch that coordinates with this set.

Mini Treat Bag-with Ice Cream cone

Layers of paper for Ice Cream

Oh, you just have to have the punch. It makes a great tree, and of course the ice cream can be a cloud.

Here are just a few things you can do with this set.

Dots and Ice Cream card
