Stampin' Up is Celebrating 25 Years!

1988:  25 years ago, in 1988, Stampin' Up! was born... Shelli and her sister LaVonne started Stampin' Up! in their living room, and WOW HOW IT HAS GROWN!!

1994:  I was introduced to Stampin' Up in 1994.  I was invited to a party and right away I saw the potential of saving money and making my own cards.   I have come a long way since back then but I thought they were masterpieces! I got together with other friends to create cards for upcoming events on a regular basis while the kids played together.  I even started my very first card swap group.  We would exchange cards on a monthly basis.  Some people were even in a different state.  

2005:  In 2005, I decided to sign up as a Demonstrator.  I had only attended a handful of workshops.  I always managed to get my hands on a catalog and would make up my lists of what I wanted to continue to create my scrapbook pages or cards.  I remember my very first workshop!  Since I hadn't been to too many workshops I wasn't even sure how to go about doing one.  But with some help and coaching and thank heavens a small group, it went fine and we had a lot of fun! 

Today:  I am still sharing what I LOVE TO DO and HELPING others achieve their goals and desires.  I can't believe it will 7 years in October with Stampin' Up!  Join me in celebrating ALL YEAR LONG as Stampin' Up celebrates 25 years of making a difference!

"Best of 25 Years" Stamps

 One of the VERY FUN ways Stampin' UP! will be celebrating all year long is a new "BEST OF" stamp set to be released each month!

Quick Card with the Postage Stamp Punch

I decided to make some Thank You cards for some friends as a little gift.  I got the brilliant idea if I used my Postage Stamp punch, 1" square punch, small heart punch, and some of my scraps I could whip something up quickly.  I even used retired ribbon!  I am very happy with how it turned out.  I used the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder along with the Curly Cute stamp set.

Now is a great time to order merchandise because it is Sale-A-Bration!  For every $50 you can receive FREE MERCHANDISE!  If you are interested in ordering any of these items or anything else, feel free to shop in my online store.

Have a great day!

Samples From Leadership

I was in an organized swap and this is the card I chose to do for my swap using the Clockworks stamp set and Pretty Petites from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  I also used the new Petite curly label punch from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  I absolutely love the colors and got my jumping off point from Marie Shaughnessy who made note cards & envelopes.  I added some layering to it and a little embellishment. 
This card was done by Karla Stroh from Arizona.  I have to confess I think the Honeycomb Embossing Folder is becoming one of my new favorites!  This uses the Feel Goods, Everything Eleanor and Papillon Potpourri stamp sets.  The added touch of the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper finishes the card perfectly.
This card was done by Lorrie Skinner from Michigan.  I love the creative way she used the two tags Bigz die.  She used the Secret Garden stamp set and Parker's Patterns designer series paper.
This last card was done by Tara Johnson.  This is a simple card but very cute using the Happy Hour stamp set! I like how she used the jewels as bubbles from the drink and Parker's Patterns designer series paper for color and finishing the card.

The Sale-A-Bration catalog becomes available tomorrow the 22nd and goes through March 22nd.  If you are interested in purchasing any of these items just click here and go to my online store.  Hope you have a great day!!
