 This past weekend's SAB Stamp-a-Stack was a huge hit. Two ladies even braved the wicked weather Friday night to come out and stamp. Thanks Sandy and Ginny for keeping me company. Saturday was a very busy stamping day with eight ladies. As promised, here is one of the cards we made. It has a little story. During Leadership General Session, I discovered that I was sitting next to Stamper Dog's mom, Ann Clemmer!! I was so excited, Ann is a Who's Who with SU. So I couldn't resist asking if she had a swap card? She unfortunately didn't BUT  I gave her my swap anyway. She said she would post on her blog, and to my surprise she did. SO excited!!! And not only is it on her blog, I have seen it pinned and re-pinned in Pinterest. It is a very easy card to make, it features the Sycamore Street paper and if you visit back tomorrow, I will have a tutorial on how to make the 3-D butterfly. Until then, keep on stampin'!

Inky hugs,

Leadership 2013 Orlando

Today was check-in day here in Orlando at Stampin' UPs! annual leadership conference. It's so great to meet-up with old friends. Had a blast stuffing bags with retired SU products to give to local school teachers. With a huge help from my stamping sister Mary Trautner we stuffed 33 bags. SU's go was to make 2,000 bags. My first class at Leadership 2013 was How To Get To Manager's Reception Next Year with Brian Pilling. I am so excited to try his tips to achieve Manager by October 2013.

Happy New Year!

Hello 2013! I am sitting here wondering where 2012 went.
2013 is a special year for Stampin' Up! it is their 25th Anniversary and January is an exciting month. Spring Catalog makes it debut, not one but two Valentine Specials and Leadership Conference in Orlando. I am heading there next week to meet up  with my stamping sorority sisters and learn new business builders. I love SU's new tag line "make something that means something". My goal this year is to blog more and share the fun we are having in my classes.So stay tuned and visit often.
