I have hinted a couple times about something fun and new in my life, namely that I have started a new job. I love paper crafting. That is no secret, right? About six months ago I started doing contract work for Spellbinders and their brother company Journey Blooms. You are certainly familiar with Spellbinders, gorgeous intricate dies galore. Now, this new partner has just launched an exciting new opportunity called Fun Stampers Journey.
It might seem a little confusing, but essentially Fun Stampers Journey is business opportunity about sharing your creativity in a home party setting, with Journey Coaches demonstrating, stamping and die cutting. See? That is the tie in, gorgeous stamps with unique coordinating dies (enter Spellbinders). It all fits together. And, much to my delight, the Fun Stampers Journey collection is more Kesti style, with bright happy colors, fun cute stamps and amazing dies.
Here is one card I created for the website (follow that link for more info) using the signature Journey Bloom Flower. Just fun, bright and happy. The site is brand new, you can see a good variety of products there, but the full catalog launch is not until September.
Speaking of September, guess where I will be the 4th-6th? In California at The Grand Event. You really need to check it out HERE. This is the first big debut of Fun Stampers Journey, and let me tell you, Richard Garay (the founder) does NOTHING half way. He is a delight (he is my boss over there at Spellbinders/Journey Blooms). A very creative, generous and energetic guy. The Grand Event will be three days of classes, demonstrations, giveaways, meals and MORE. All for $300! (I mean, seriously. The giveaways alone will be worth at least half of that, or more knowing Richard). You all need to check it out. I will be teaching and chatting and having a ball there.
If you want a sneak peek and see a glimpse into the personality driving this business, check out THIS video! (Oh, and like them on Facebook HERE).
Okay, enough chatting your ear off. Long story short, after trying on the fit for six months, I have taken the plunge to join the Spellbinders/Journey Blooms family on a permanent basis. They are based just a few minutes from my home here in Phoenix, Eloise is staring first grade, and the opportunity to help launch Fun Stampers Journey, it all became the Perfect Storm. Ha, ha.
Of course, I will still be blogging and creating. My term with Pebbles was up July 31st, so I did let them go. (Their new team is amazing). Life will be different, but all in a good way.
Thanks for your support!
