My heart truly is grateful for all of you. Thank you to anyone who has ever watched one of my Facebook Lives, read a Facebook post, visited my Stampin' Peace blog, watched one of my YouTube videos, or pinned one of my Pinterest entries. When the current Coronavirus pandemic forced me to cancel all in-person stamping events, I knew I needed to find new ways of doing business. In a way, the pandemic has been a blessing as I've learned so many more things about doing business and stretching outside my comfort zone in order to grow and thrive. It forced me to try many of the things I had been mulling over or dabbling in for a long time. I learned how to host Zoom Meetings for my team and stream them to our private Facebook Group. I improved my Classes to Go and have been working hard to offer more. And, while I've been doing Facebook Lives for quite some time, I went from hosting 1, sometimes 2, each week to offering at least 3 per week and often times 4. And through it all, I have learned that I love what I am doing even more than ever before. My love and passion for this job is greater than ever. I have more confidence in myself and my abilities than I have had in a long time. I now see my future a bit more clearly. And, all of this would not be possible without the support, encouragement, and love from my family and friends, customers and teammates, viewers and followers. For this, I am truly grateful. Please know that when I say I appreciate you, I really do. I say what I mean and mean what I say. I appreciate each and every one of you and am grateful you are part of my Stampin' Up! journey. I'm very blessed.
Today's card was featured in my August 3rd Make It with Mary Monday Facebook Live. (You can create along with me each Monday at 11am EST on Stampin' Peace VIP Group via Facebook Live.) I introduced a new card sketch along with the Gilded Autumn Suite. The Designer Series Paper, stamp set & punches, web embossing folder, and embellishments are all marvelous. They are wonderful for autumn and thanksgiving cards, scrapbook pages, and paper crafts. Many of the Gilded Autumn products can also be used for other occasions throughout the year, so don't go putting them away after Thanksgiving.
Please enjoy my video replay demonstration of this card sketch featuring the Gilded Autumn Suite. You'll find that this card sketch is easy to replicate and will work well with any Designer Series Papers and many of our stamp sets. Give it a try in both the vertical and horizontal position. All products featured in my demonstration can be purchased in my new online store.
If you haven't checked out the Gilded Autumn Suite from the new 2020 Holiday Catalog, I hope you will soon. It's full of beautiful fall-themed products. The color combination is outstanding and coordinating products are just as outstanding.
