Try It You Might Like It!!

                           Want a New Adventure?  Why not look and try it!
                           Have you ever stepped out of the box to try something new?  Give stamping a trial time to see if you might be interested in learning a new activity as a hobbyist or even earning an income to help support your hobby or supplement your household income while you enjoy some private time .  I enjoy making items I can give to others and hearing their reaction to know I took my time to think of them and created a paper craft project, such as a greeting card, for them is a delight.  It makes me feel good, and saves me time and money to use my materials at home to complete a gift.  You can join my team and earn an extra kit if you sign up.  I will work with you, to help you get started.  It only takes a short time to go online and fill the application to get your started kit.                                                  

Offer: New recruits get to pick one of four project kits for free in addition to their starter kit when they join Stampin' Up!
Dates: July 15-August 31, 2013

I have some more cards I made for convention to share with you .

Here are some pictures of my friends and I having fun at convention.




Convention has so much to offer.  One of the best things for me, is meeting so many new demonstrators and sharing what we love.
Hope you have a great week.  Remember the good things in your life and give thanks, for what you have.
Hugs and blessings to you.

We had fun shopping for matching outfits to wear  at     convention.

Sherry was a angel friend helper for me during the swaps.
Thanks Sherry!

Pearl was another angel helper for me during the swaps.  I  needed to give her a break.
Thanks Pearl!

Nichole was waiting for her next swap! Like me, she signed up for lots of great swaps.

Celebrating 25 Years with Stampin Up!!!



6000 Demonstrators gathered in Utah, to celebrate 25 years of Stampin Up! 
The StampinUp Convention memories will be enjoyed and remembered throughout the year.

Ryan Innes

The theme of the convention was BE the DIFFERENCE.
We heard the theme song and enjoyed the fireworks, which set the scene of the celebration.
During convention, we learned about the new products, business hints, swapped cards with fellow demonstrators to get ideas for future classes in making cards, holiday banners, treat favors and other paper craft  projects.  It is always amazing how new ideas keep developing! 
Below are two cards I made to swap at convention.  It is always fun to exchange swaps and meet other great fellow demonstrators.  If you want to join me next year, you can join my team and share the excitement of discovering your talents and creativity in the stamping world, along with enjoying the fun get away time at convention and meeting new friends.

These cards were made for two organized swaps.
The left one is a Monochromatic card using a returning stamp set:  Mixed Bunch.
The card on the right was made for a Make N Take class, featuring a new stamp set:  Polka-Dot-Pieces, in the SU 2013-2014 catalog.
Below on the left is a card featuring a new stamp set:  Gifts of Kindness.  The card on the right was for a Spanish swap, also featuring a new stamp set:  The Flower Shop.
