2011 Stampin' Up! Manager's Reception

Managers As usual Stampin' Up! really outdid themselves this year at the Manager's reception at the Stampin' Up! Leadership Conference!  This year we were taken to the Wild Horse Saloon in Nashville for an evening of great food, music and line dancing, yes, I tried my hand at line dancing!  It was really fun!  

It was great to catch up with my stampin' friends from all over the US and Canada and as you can see from my pictures I even made some new friends!  :)  Thanks for stopping by to visit!

Valentine Defined

Valentine Defined

If you are looking for a cute Valentine's stamp set then look no further than Valentine Defined (121941).  This card was inspired by a card that I made at a Stampin' Up! regional seminar back in October.  That card was a different layout but also had individual images stamped on small pieces of cardstock and then assembled together like a collage.  

I love how the Glimmer Paper (121790) really sets this whole card off and adds that extra wow factor without having to go over the top on accessories!  My one big tip is that our SNAIL adhesive doesn't stick very well to the Glimmer Paper so I used Dimensionals on all the little pieces, that's fine by me because I love the look of some dimension on a card!  You can order the supplies for this project by clicking the Order Online link at the top of the page.  Thanks for stopping by!

Become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator for FREE!

This week I have one Stampin' Up! demonstrator kit to give away for free!  There are no strings attached and no catch but of course my preference is to give it to someone looking to use it as a part-time job to earn some extra money or at the very least someone who will stay active and contribute to the Stampin' Up! family.  Please email me at if you're interested!
