Hello, 2024! Happy New Year. Can you believe we are jumping into 2024?
Honestly, 2023 went by way too fast, and the last two months of the year were a little bit rough. Our household dealt with a full two months of sickness of some sort.
I took a good 2 and a half weeks off and I’m ready to get back to sharing.
We had a pretty great year last year, and we are looking forward to all things ahead.
It always feels like we hit the ground running in January and February. Things won’t tend to slow down until the middle of the year when kids wrap up the school year.
Last year I started making some major shifts here for my online business and I thought I would start the new year off by sharing what things will look like moving forward.
Rebrand / Refresh
With some of the changes that have been taking place, I wanted to do a minor refresh here on my website, YouTube, and Facebook business page.
These are minor changes, and won’t affect what I’m sharing, only the way it looks. It is really as simple as some fresh paint on the walls.
What you will notice is that I am shifting away from card-making. There will be less of that here.
I am going back to my first love of memory-keeping. Memory-Keeping is where my heart is and I will be leaning into that much more this year. You will also be able to find much more of my memory-keeping content within my Membership Community.
Stampin Up Details
As I mentioned I am moving away from card-making, and with that change comes moving away from being a full-time Stampin Up Demonstrator.
For 12 years I have been a full-time demonstrator. This means it has been my main focus. I’ve done in-person classes, hosted online clubs, and invited all to join me in the Blessed2Stamp Community.
While I’m currently still a Stampin Up Demonstrator and you are welcome to purchase any Stampin Up Product from me in my online store HERE, I will not be pursuing Stampin Up in a Full-Time manner any longer.
While all other clubs, and classes have been discontinued I will still be sharing my Color Club projects through April, I will still be sharing catalogs, and products that are launched, and you can still join my Blessed2Stamp Exclusive Community where you will enjoy the benefits of what Stampin Up Offers.
I shared a video today of creating this card and chatting about the new year, and the things I’m most excited about.
All of the products I used in today’s video that are from the January – April catalog will be available on January 4th.
Design Team Work
I’m excited to be joining my first Creative Design Team with Pixels to Pages.
As I make the move to be involved with Stampin Up less I’m looking forward to meeting, and working with other crafty people and companies.
Join me this Friday as I share my first projects using the product, and hear my thoughts on this new adventure.
Amazon Store Front
I have an Amazon Storefront where I mainly started to be able to share products that I’m using and asked about regularly. The Amazon Storefront allows me to organize these things in a way that is easy for you to access them.
You can access that storefront HERE. Please note that I make a small commission on items that you purchase through me. This is one of several income streams that I have that support not only my family but my ability to offer so much content for free.
I appreciate your support when you use my links.
Other Brands I’m Using This Year
While I don’t have any plans currently to stop using Stampin Up Products all altogether, I will be adding other products to my lineup. I’m a crafter at heart. and believe that there is room for all crafty things and companies.
Let me also add as a side note here that even as a Stampin Up Demonstrator there is no policy, or rules against using other products. As long as I’m a demonstrator for Stampin Up I will always make sure to stay within compliance.
The main reason for remaining a Stampin Up Demonstrator is to enjoy the 25% discount I receive on all products. With that said I will be sharing two other companies regularly.
I have started purchasing Stamp Pads recently from Concord & 9th, and I enjoy some of their stamps and dies. If you haven’t checked this company out make sure you do this year.
I have decided to start purchasing all of my 12×12 Cardstock from Close To My Heart and I will be supporting Crafty Concepts With Erin! Erin and I have connected through Youtube and I adore what she does with Memory-Keeping.
As always Thank You for being here, and I’m looking forward to a wonderful, Crafty Year!
