Winter Weekend Retreat & More

This past weekend I held my Annual Winter Weekend retreat for my team – a fun weekend of fun, fellowship and stamping, of course. Today I thought I’d share some pictures we took during the 3 day event.

This first one is our team name tags for the tables and an extra special little goodie bag.

The bag contained these wonderful Team Aprons.

Here is our team photo from the retreat. I feel so blessed – they are the best team members!

We always have a Shoe box Swap on Saturday and so today I thought I’d share with you some of the wonderful cards everyone designed for the swap.

This first card is Cindy’s – I just love the way that she used the Urban Underground Designer Series Paper. A great  use of this paper since it is so masculine at first glance.

And how about this card Mary made using the Oh So Succulent stamp set (142992) and coordinating Framelits Dies (142757).

And this soft and lovely card that Deborah brought was made using the Avant Garden stamp set (143272) from the Sale-a-bration Catalog. This set is is just one of the FREE items you earn a Sale-a-bration item with a minimum $50 purchase.

Melanie designed this fun Valentine card using the Sealed with Love stamp set (142815) and coordinating Love Notes Framelits Dies (142752).

I love sparkle – So this fun card from Marni using the Balloon Adventures stamp set (14823) and Balloon Pop-up Thinlits Dies (142753) fills the bill and is so classic too with it’s color choice.

And this final card that Anna made is bright and cheerful – It used the really cool Celebrations Duo Embossing Folder (142760).

It’s so quick and easy to create this card with the debossed impression folders – just add some ink and voila!

If you have ever thought about joining Stampin’ Up! now is a great time to do so! You can check out this chart to see all the advantages join has during Sale-a-bration

Want to see some wonderful cards made using Sale-a-bration items? Well, your in luck I’ve got 7 wonderful cards here for you today!

This first card uses the very popular stamp set Hey, Chick (143328/143331) that Kitty gave me. I’m including the supply list below for you.

And how about this cute little card that Sandy made using the Tasty Trucks stamp set (143300). And the bright colors are so much fun. Sandy used the  Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack (142733) and Brights Collection Designer Series Paper Stack (138434) along with the Lucky Stars Embossing Folder (135817) to add some texture.

I’m not sure what it is about this little truck, but I fell in love with it immediately! And isn’t the Mini Paper Clip (1427666) too cute?

And this soft and lovely card uses the Avant Garden stamp set (143272) in addition to our yummy Very Vanilla 1/4″ Satin Ribbon (142794) found in the Occasions Catalog and the Petal Burst Embossing Folder (141493).

And here is a fun card made with the Any Occasion stamp set (143348) from Lianna.

And who can resist this fun card made with the Designer Tee stamp set (143356/143359) and Sunburst Thinlits (140617) that Gina made?

Thank you cards are always a great item to have on hand and the So Very Much stamp set (143340/143343) found on page 8 of the Sale-a-bration catalog makes these cards quick and easy!

And finally another card that Lianna gave me uses the soft elegant Delicate Details stamp set (143314) I really like the way she used out In Colors to create this simply background for the card.

The sentiment is from our Tin of Cards stamp set (138946) which is one of my favorites since it covers all kinds of occasions! And did you notice our Stitched Shapes Framelits Die (145372)? Great news these will be available again soon so if you have been waiting you won’t have to wait much longer.

Sealed with Love

Swaps and more! One of the fun things about being a stamper and a demonstrator is sharing what I love. And doing swaps are a of lot of fun since you can see different styles of stamping with the same stamp set. Sounds fun right?

I just finished my latest swap with my fellow demonstrators and was blown away with all the wonderful creativity. I can’t wait to share them with you, so over the next few weeks I’ll be sharing some along with some other projects too.

Today I’m sharing swaps with you made with the Sending Love Suite of products found on pages 14 & 15 in the 2017 Occasions Catalog. With Valentines Day just around the corner I thought it would be a good place to start.

This first card uses our Real Red Glitter Embossing Powder and Glimmer Paper – so it just sparkles!

Did you know that the Real Red Glitter Embossing Powder has carried over from our Holiday Catalog and that you can still get it if you missed out earlier? I was so excited that it did

Here is Lisa’s swap she also used the Love Notes Die set and the really cool border die – I love the way these little hearts pop out at you.

And this last card is from my team mate, Deborah. Deborah fell in love with these little envelopes immediately when she saw them at our Stampin’ Up! event, On Stage in November so it’s no surprise that they are the focal point of her card.

And finally some little love notes that I made – I really love all the cool pieces the Love Notes Framelits Dies include. As you can see the combination is endless with this great Bundle (144705).


Stamp Set: Sealed with Love (142815)

Inks: VersaMark (102283)
