Let’s say goodbye to #Hello

I really hated to see this stamp set, #Hello (134237/134240) on the Retirement List was it came out. I love the fact that the images can be used for all kinds of occasions and the hash tags are right on trend. The good news is that right now the #Hello is still available and it is 25% Off! Which makes it a great deal.

Here are just some of the cards that I’ve created using this set and the Lullaby Designer Series Paper (133695).

#Hello (3)#Hello (2)

And Flowerpot Designer Series Paper (133698) and did you notice the retiring Scallop Edge Border Punch (119872)?

#Hello (4)

And how about these two cards using our Embossing Folders. Quick and Easy – This first one uses the Happy Heart Embossing Folder (137364) and Bushing Bride 3/4″ Chevron Ribbon (130013) available for 50% Off since it is part of the Retirement List.

# Hello Coffee & Cards January 2015 (1)

And this second one I made using our 2014 In Color Blackberry Bliss along with the Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder (132174) and the yummy Blackberry Bliss 3/8″ Satin Stitched Ribbon (133668) which is also 50% off! Woo hoo!

# Hello Coffee & Cards October 2014 (1)

And this last card was made using the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper (137779) from the Occasions Catalog? So which is your favorite? Why not leave me a comment and let me know.

Leadership Survival Kit

Part of the fun of going to a Stampin’ Up! event is the fellowship with your friends and fellow demonstrators. Who’s kidding that’s a big part of it! And I love creating up a little gift for my roomie.

Here is what I came up with….. or at least the gift bag!

Leadership 2015 Survival  gift bag

I call it my Leadership Survival Kit – you know how when you travel, it’s always the little things that you forget or are a blessing to have on hand. Want to know what is inside?

First a name tag for our bag. With 1,500 of the same Stampin’ Up! Leadership bag at the Orlando Convention Center it is always good to be able to tell which one is yours!!!

Leadership 2015 name tags

I used this stamp set Feel Goods (131916/130538) since I thought the sentiment was perfect for this occasion. It’s my roomie’s first time qualifying for  Manager’s Reception – which is a big deal since Stampin’ Up! is taking over the Disney’s Hollywood Studios for the evening. What fun, right?

Leadership 2015 Survival  kit - wet wipes

A little package of mini wet wipes. I found them at Target a while back and thought they’d be great for inky fingers – or anything else we get into!

mini wet wipes

And a little pack of Kleenex for her new Leadership bag –

A little note pad –

Leadership 2015 Survival  kit - purse notepad

Don’t you love the button? It’s part of the Artisan Embellishment Kit (137909) found on page 27 of the Occasions Catalog. The photo doesn’t show just how beautiful it is!

Leadership 2015 Survival kit post it, pen and binder clip

And of course you need a pen and post it notes – I couldn’t resist adding this little binder clip for keeping the paperwork we get together.

Leadership 2015 Survival kit tic tacs and lip gloss

Never hurts to have a package of tic tacs and chap stick on hand. The Convention Center air gets pretty dry. And of course, chocolate – just because she might need a bit of energy.  Kathleen and I tend to be night owls! LOL

Here is the set

Leadership 2015 Survival  kit

Of course I’m sure you recognized the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper (137779) that I’ve used for the little purse and other projects. Isn’t it great that the one side is a neutral all occasions pattern?

And since I was having so much fun making this Survival Kit – I made this little note pad for my self too. I love the soft colors in the Sale-a-bration Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper – I love that you can earn the coordinating ribbon and button pack too.  I’ve used a bit of the ribbon here along with the Hello Life photopolymer stamp set (137136).

Leadership 2015 note pad and pen

Can you tell I embossed the sentiment using our Calypso Coral Embossing Powder (133752)? And isn’t the Pompom Trim (137898) fun? I’ll be taking notes in style LOL!

Hey, Valentine

Here is a card that I made during my weekend retreat using this set. I just love the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack (137779) for card making since it gives you lots of choices and multiple sheets that are just the perfect size for cards or small treats!

During Sale-a-bration you can choose our Stampin’ Blendabilities as one of your FREE items (find the complete list in the Sale-a-bration Brochure or click HERE).

And today, I thought I’d share a personal photo of the view out my window, or lack there of! LOL  Believe it or not their is a beautiful hillside view the fog is hiding.


I don’t know what the weather is doing in your neck of the woods, but here in Clarkesville it’s like pea soup – Thankfully I didn’t need to go out today since visibility is awful – but I do have to say I miss the sunshine. One thing about living in Wisconsin growing up, it may have been very cold, but it seemed like it was always bright in the winter. I guess it was the snow reflecting the light, but then it’s been a long time so maybe it is just my childhood memory isn’t really that accurate. Anyhow – seems like a good day to stamp since I feel like cocooning!
