MONDAY MADNESS: A Touch of Sparkle

Hey everyone -

I must admit this was a find from Pinterest which of course is a great place to find ideas for just about anything.  If you aren't following my Pinterest boards yet please pop over there and follow Beachside Stampers and Jenn Van Wart. 

This is my version of a fun Snowflake wreath.  I think it gives a little bit of sparkle with a little bit of class and was very simple to make.

The supply list for this project is as follows:
Festive Flurry Framelits Item #132193 or get the bundle which includes the stamp set Item #133284 for the wood and Item #133285 for the clear stamp set
Big Shot Die Machine Item # 113439
Winter Frost Designer Series Paper Item #132341
Silver Glimmer Paper Item #124005
Pool Party Card Stock Item #122924
Large Rhinestone Basic Jewels Item #129324
White and Sparkle Tulle
Hot Glue Gun

You can really do this with any color you would like and make the tulle more fluffy by just adding more strips of tulle. 

Here is a different view of the wreath:

If you have any questions regarding this project or need any help please feel free to contact me at  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!

Do you Love What you do???

Hey everyone -

I just wanted to share a cute card using our GREAT Circle Card Thinlits.  This is such an easy die to use and the creativity is endless when it comes to either of the cute Card Thinlits.  Just another of many reasons why I Love Stampin' Up! and Love what I do.  Stampin' Up! truly out does themselves and never ceases to amaze me.  If you can't say you LOVE what you do, maybe it is time to think about working for yourself.  There is no better time to sign up with our $25 special still available until Monday October 21st.  If you are interested in becoming a part of my team feel free to contact me at

Also if you click this link you will get to see first hand how the Card Thinlits work.  Enjoy!!

~Halloween Wreath Tutorial~

Hey everyone.....

The following is a tutorial to help you create these great paper wreaths that have become so popular.

 We are going to start with the supplies you need.......
Wreath (Straw or Styrofoam)
Bone Folder
6- 12 x 12 Witches Brew Designer Series Paper
Halloween Banner Simply Created Accessory Kit
1 package of straight pins
Paper Cutter
Next you are going to cut all 6 sheets into 1/2' strips.  Once you have them all cut you are going to use your bone folder to curl your paper like you were curling ribbon.  Suggestion:  Curl only a hand full of strips at a time so if you have more then needed you will not have curled paper that you have to work with but 1/2' strips that can used for borders for scrapbook pages or cards.

This is what the curls will look like:

Now you will use a straight pin for each piece and put it in the center of the curl and attach it to your will start to look like this....
With my wreath being a straw wreath I left the plastic on which kept any lose straw from sticking out.  As you continue working your way around your wreath you will notice it will become more full as seen here:

You will continue this process all the way around the wreath until it looks like this:
You want to remember to continue to add curls until you get the desired fullness you are looking for.  Once you have completed this step you are ready to create your banner for the front.

Be creative with this step, as the kit has many different options to choose from.  Once you have completed your banner you will attach it and the end result will look something like this:

TADA!!  You now have a cute wreath to share in your home or give to someone as a gift.  I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.  Even though this has been offered as a FREE tutorial, please remember all photos and instructions are copyrighted to Beachside Stampers and should not be re-posted without approval. Thanks for you cooperation and thanks for your business.

Keep a look out for my Snowflake wreath which will be posting very soon!  Have a great day!

I have a special gift for the first from each state.

KEEP READING For more details.
$25 -Yes its true. You can give SU a try with no obligation for just $25. Based on questions received since I first announced it in my customer mailing I have put together these details.
I would be honored to sponsor you and help you explore the possibilities, discounts, opportunities that just $25 can open up!

The Offer is only good for TWO weeks – OCTOBER 7th – 21st

IF JOINING  STAMPIN’ UP! is not for you but you know someone who would love this $25 Special, please forward this information to them. I have awesome referral thank you gifts!! 

Offer: New recruits can join Stampin’ Up! for just $25! 
Dates: October 7-21, 2013
  • This offer is only good for two weeks, so take advantage of it right away!
  • During this offer, only the special $25 starter kit will be available; the regular $99  starter kit will not be available. The $25 Starter Kit includes
    • $26.95 worth of Stampin’ Up! product (it must be more than $25, but not more than $26.95 before tax)
    • Business pack which includes
      • A box of annual catalogs
      • A package of the current seasonal catalog
      • Getting Started DVD
      • Starter Kit Business Brick
      • Customer postcards
SUGGESTIONS FOR $25 – in addition to Digital Downloads are shown here:

Anyone over 18 or older with a US social security number.
Are you a previous demonstrator??
    a. If you have been inactive for 90 days or more you are eligible to rejoin immediately under anyone you choose. 
    b. If you have been inactive less than 90 days and the person you originally joined Stampin’ UP! is no longer a demonstrator you are eligible to rejoin immediately under anyone you choose.

WHY WOULD I WANT TO JOIN FOR JUST $25 and really no Product?
While there is not much in the kit – many customers and previous demonstrators already have many supplies AND all new recruits are given a one time 30% savings on an order. So instead of spending $99 on a full kit where the $99 doesn’t go towards quarterly minimum – you spend just $25.  Then you can hold an open house where you can share SU with family and friends and earn 30% or place a personal order where you save 30%.  Either way all orders count towards your quarterly minimum which is an amazing deal.

Build a team and a great stamp collection with our $25 Promotion. No experience to ask someone to join. No have-to’s as a sponsor.  Plus I am here to help!

    In truth nothing unless you want to remain active enjoying Demonstrator perks, discounts and opportunities.  
   If you wish to remain active, Stampin’ UP! asks that you submit $300 a quarter
This can be one large order, several medium orders, little orders, clearance items, digital downloads, hostess orders, personal purchases. Lots of ways to meet your minimums and I will be providing some great ideas to those who join on how to do that without spending your own money. 
THE BEST PART - Your First Official quarter will be January-March.   
AND any sales in October – December will count towards that first quarter!!! WOOHOO!!! 
OK – I’m on the FENCE can you entice me with a few more reasons?

1. I am a no pressure person. I welcome everyone to my team and encourage you to enjoy the benefits of being a demonstrator that fit your lifestyle and needs.  I am here to offer any help and encouragement needed.

I welcome everyone to my team. It is your choice whether you want to enjoy the demonstrator benefits of just the discount or more. My #1 goal is having you happy, my 2nd goal is to help you in ways that best meet your needs.
