Last Saturday during our Maui Big Shots! Team Meeting I got a text from Shelli Gardner saying she & her family were on Maui & would like to meet with me & whoever else I wanted to invite. I read the text to my team & we all went a little crazy!! I decided to have them over to my house so that we could show them some Maui hospitality. Last night was the special night.
Me & Shelli. I’d met her about 5 years ago when I had to stand in line to get a photo with her… and here she is at my house for dinner!
Our family tree: Crystal (Anne’s Team Leader), Sterling, Shelli, Anne (my Team Leader), & me
Random photos. Everyone wanted their picture taken with these two celebrities! We should have gotten autographs, you guys! Shelli & Sterling were so gracious & down to earth. We’re so grateful that they shared their vacation time with us!
I have to just say, it was a team effort getting this event together & I appreciate all of you so much that cleaned my house!, brought over delicious food & flowers, helped fill up the gift bag for Shelli. And you should see my craft room!! I have to take a picture! It’s totally picked up! Kind of a shocker when I walk in here!
After dinner we gathered around the front room asked them random questions. Learned a bit of history about the journey of Stampin’ Up! and what’s coming up next (30th anniversary event in Orlando!)
Still glowing from the fun evening. I’m so grateful for all the friends (old & new) I’ve made through Stampin’ Up! Safe travels, Shelli & Sterling, until we meet again. A hui hou.

My favorite Suite from the Holiday Catalog is Quilted Christmas! The more I play around with it, the more ideas pop into my head!
This suite includes Christmas Quilt Stamp Set, Quilt Builder Framelits Dies, Quilted Christmas DSP, 1/4″ Ribbon and Stitched Felt Embellishments.
Recently I challenged my downline, the Maui Big Shots!, to start using their DBWS and to add an event to their blog. Ramona Corson and Mary Green met the challenge, so this is one of the gifts they’ll receive from me:
I just love the Pizza Boxes!! They’re sturdy and glossy white and simple to assemble. They are the perfect size to hold a set of 3 X 3 cards. And now there are 3 X 3 envelopes available for purchase!
Today the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Team will be showcasing favorite Stamp Sets from the Holiday Catalog! My favorite, hands down, is Count My Blessings! This set has beautiful artwork and can be used any time of year!
My team, the Maui Big Shots!, had a stampin’ retreat over Labor Day and this is one of the projects we made:
This is called a Vellum Luminary Card, and it’s very simple to make! You put a battery- candle in the middle & it lights up. So pretty!! The sentiment and leaves are from Count My Blessings and the Designer Series Paper on the left side is Painted Autumn DSP.
I used a technique called “Stained Glass” on the vellum. CLICK HERE to see directions from a previous card.
A Vellum Luminary would be really nice for Christmas! Maybe you’ll see another one here in a month or two.
Don’t you just love the Holiday Catalog?!! Be sure & go to the SSINK PAGE for more Holiday Favorites!
Last week I needed a couple of cards in a hurry. Paper Pumpkin to the rescue! I popped open my latest box and found all the products needed to make some cute Thank You cards.
Sometimes I add a little extra to the cards. Here’s the same card with a little bling:
These Thank You’s were for Beth & Mary, my helpers for our Maui Big Shots! Retreat that we had last weekend! 2 1/2 days of total creativity, fun, friendship (talking story- as we say in Hawaii) & great food!! 12 of my downline attended & we stayed at a condo on the beach in Napili. I’m so blessed to have these women in my life- & what a fabulous time we had!!
Mary & Beth have been helping me plan & prep for about 4 months! I made them these special Retreat Survival Kits!
Here we are after unpacking the van- finally relaxing.
Thanks, you guys!!! I’m sure you’re pretty tired of my infamous “delegating skills”!! Ha!
