FSJ's August Promotion and August Bloom Box

Aloha Crafters!!!!! FSJ's August Promotion of the month is 20% off ink pads. Now is your chance to grab those ink pad colors that you wanna add to your collection.  A little info about FSJ's ink pads: The FSJ ink pads, which are a hybrid ink pad, a marriage of dye and pigment ink – the True Color Fusion ink pad. With our True Color Fusion Inks you have the best of the two worlds. Our ink pads have the vibrant ink and archival features of pigment and the ease of use and fast drying characteristics of dye inks. True Color Fusion Inks are fade resistant and acid-free. This combination makes our ink pads the best on the market today.
True Fusion Color Inks will become permanent when stamped on glass, fabric, wood, plastic, metal and clay when heat set.
Please note, Ink Pad Bundles, Gold, Silver and Clear Pigment Ink not included. Thank You!!!!! 
See attached flyers below.... 

As of today, you can also able to order from the Holiday Catalog!!! Oh what FUN!!!! If you are planning on placing an order, please do so from my website at Click on Shop and then when you are ready to check out - click on your cart, and proceed to checkout. There will be a part where you will be prompt to find a Hostess Party. Do a search under "Jen Young" and my open party will come up. Please do this as it will enter you into a drawing that I am having at the end of the month to win this prize: 

It's stamp set called "Planner Elements" and has 24 stamps in this set. Great for a Planner Princess!!! FSJ has an entire section of planner yummies, so be sure to check out my website, and see what there is to offer. :)

OK, one more thing.... Bloom Box. Bloom Box for August is available for purchase. If you've subscribed, then awesome, if not, then you can still order them individually. The good thing about the subscription is that our Qualifying Value or QV is $24.95. For me, as a Coach, this means keeping my quota of $150 per quarter, will break down to $50 per month, and with the Bloom Box subscription, that knocks my $50 down to having to only spend $25.05 in other FSJ products per month. Now, granted that I'll be stuck to this budget. But it's something that's worth not having to worry about making my quota. $150 is SO AWESOME compared to the $300 quarterly quota I had to make with SU!. So, I'm thrilled about that!!!!

Thanks for reading this post. I'll be sharing a card tomorrow with a video tutorial. :) Have a blessed evening!!!

Colossians 3:2

Another post today!!  Please be sure to check out my previous post, it is my Little C's Aloha Friday Challenge post. I'm feeling crafty and wanna get as much play in before I head off to my hair appointment. :)  Created this card using Fun Stampers Journey products. The stamped sentiment is one of the stamps that I received in my Platinum Starter Kit. This is called an "ATS" or Artist Trading Stamp. Which is smaller is size compared to the regular sized stamp sets, however, quality is JUST AS GOOD!!!! Love that they have this and many other ATS on hand. In fact, so neat, because when the more you spend, you can earn Journey Dollars AND ATSs.  I'll post the Hostess Level Chart below (after my project).

So, this project, I created following this Sweet Sketch Wednesday's Sketch:

There is still some time to play to get your crafty fun on and play along!!!!

Here is how mines turned out. This challenge was pretty simple, and fun, and when I saw it, I immediately KNEW what FSJ products I wanted to use.

So here is what I used:

  • DSPs - Confectionary Prints #PP-0028
  • Cardstock - Watermelon Fusion #CS-0039
  • Cardstock - Whip Cream #CS-0040
  • Cardstock - Deep Lilac #CS-0096
  • Bloom Stars #AC-0287 (Bloom Benefits)
  • Journey Twine Natural #AC-0005
  • Set Your Mind Stamp #AT-0199 (I choose this to be a part of my Starter Kit)
I also wanted to submit this project to the following challenges:
Here is the Hostess Level Chart I promised:

Sharing FSJ's Journey Girl Section

Aloha Gang!!!!

Hope all is well!!! So I am sharing with you today, a charmed necklace that I put together using the charm elements found in Fun Stampers Journey's Journey Girl section. I just love adorable charms, don't you?? So, you need to purchase the pieces all separate, but I was able to earn these items, because my order went to a Hostess Level of $250, and I used the Journey Dollars towards these items....  Ok, so after you check out my pictures, be sure to check out the catalog below... it's an old catalog,  but shows the diversity of these charms, and what is needed to put them together. :)

You can check out my website at for more info on these.

So here's how I started mines off... I purchased the Large Sparkled Round Locket #JW-0001 and the Large Locket Kit #JW-0027, also the 27" Diamond Cut Link #JW-0003.  I arranged the charms that I got: Pink Ribbon #JW-0071; Coffee Cup #JW-0018; Cross #JW-0020 and Love #JW-0021....

Added some i Hearts Hearts #JW-0037....

Close the locket, and then it's ready to wear!!!!!  Here it is dangling from my neck....

And now a look at a catalog to give you an idea of the different type of charms and lockets that FSJ carries. 

So, if you're interested in hosting a party (I can do online (virtual parties) too!!! Do not hesitate to contact me. I would love to help you to earn Journey Dollars!!! Be sure to visit my website today!!!
