I need plenty of birthday cards and the Stampin’ Up! Bright and Beautiful Suite has all the components to make some birthday magic happen. I adore how the star pattern on the balloon coordinates with the Bright & Beautiful designer series paper (15% off thru June 30) tucked behind.
WHAT I LOVE! It’s the little things that often define a card. A touch of baker’s twine on the balloon and a little bling from the Tinsel Gems Four-Pack turn on the WOW! Factor!

HERE’S WHAT MEMBERS OF MY PALS COMMUNITY ARE SAYING ABOUT WHY THEY JOINED!
Cathy S.- “I joined so I could get a discount on my craft supplies. I’ve been a demonstrator for 11 years because I love paper crafting and get so much motivation, encouragement, support and inspiration from the Pals.“
Veronica M. –“The discount is wonderful. But my love of stamping and sharing with others has truly blessed me with new friends!“
Debbie T. – “Signing up under Mary (along with becoming a part of the Pals community) was a game changer for me. In spite of my being just a hobby demo, I get so much more out of paper crafting from all of the sharing and inspiration, but also from the friendships.“
Windy E. –“Joined in 2011. I love my customers/friends who come to class and the Pals community so I am still here!“
Michelle Q. – “I’ve stayed on for the friends and community.“
Elisha S. – “I fell in love with Mary’s style and decided to join for the discount. Soon after some church friends asked me to join them for card classes at HL. I soon realized I could do a better job (as a retired middle school teacher) for them right at home. They are all still with me 11 years later!“
Renee C. – “I joined because I have always loved to make homemade cards and loved the products and of course the discount was an added bonus. I have remained because I love the Pals! The inspiration and encouragement are priceless.”
Debra A. – “Paper crafters are encouraging, supportive and eager to share their talents and expertise with others.”
Bridget T. – “I was buying a lot, so getting the discount was a good idea! I have met new friends!”
