Fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators, are you having trouble keeping up with all the product offerings not in a current catalog?? Here is what has been working for me. I have a binder with all the flyers in page protectors. I print out all the "extra offerings" in black and white only. (Color prints are much more expensive.) Highlight the expiration dates. I have this with me at all events and available to guests. It's a life saver!! Try it!

Leadership 2014 Swap

I'm in Houston, Texas at Stampin' Up! Leadership Conference! This is my swap for the event. I have really enjoyed using the NEW Occasions Catalog stamp set called "Happy Watercolor!" The watercolor mark is actually a stamp that looks like a watercolor brush technique!

2012-11-27 002 005

I used Crisp Cantaloupe, So Saffron, and Soft Sky ink pads. This is an easy card and appropriate for many occasions! Next week I'll be posting some of my favorite swaps - so check back often!

A "Special" 70th Birthday

2012-11-27 002 003

This is the inside of a special Birthday card for my Brother-in-Law, Gary. I made plenty of space for hubby, and daughters to write their messages. Gary had a Liver transplant 3+ years ago...a huge physical struggle. Now Gary is healthy with TWO additional granddaughters - SMILE!

2012-11-27 002 002

I combined the versatile LOVELY AS A TREE Stamp Set with BRAND NEW items from the Occasions Catalog: Hardwood Background Stamp, Natural 5/8" Chevron Ribbon, and Basic Metal Buttons.

The perfect card for a guy who loves the "woods!"
