Shelli & Sterling Visit Maui

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.

SSINK Paper Pumpkin Showcase

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!

Today the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Team will be showcasing TAGS!  I’m showing off a tag that I stuck on top of some cute Mason Jars that I sold at our Maui Big Shots! Craft Fair this last weekend.  The sentiment is from Oh What Fun.  I think I’ve used that set 100 times in the past 2 months…  Along with the Layering Circles Framelits Dies!

You can see I just fussy cut the banner & popped it up using Dimensionals.

Downline to the Rescue!

create-with-cheryl-scarecrow

I’ll tell you the story behind this bag…

A couple of weeks ago I got over my head with a Stamping Class!  It was immediately following a Downline Meeting with my group, The Maui Big Shots!  I was basically prepped for my Christmas Gift Class, but had some texts & emails on Friday when I was at work.  I knew I would have to prep for a few more, but I figured I could do it during class time.

I ended up having 15 – 16 people at class!!  I still don’t even know!  Great problem to have, huh?!  I had no time at all to cut more things out.  I’m so grateful to several of my downline who stayed to help!!

I learned 2 important things from this class, actually 3:

  • Always prep a little more than you need!!  The more organized the better!!!
  • Don’t use the same supplies for different projects (unless you have duplicates).  I was using Real Red Ink Pads in 2 of the projects (with 1 ink pad) & had to constantly look around for the ink pad!
  • Third thing…I can count on my friends!! 🙂

I just realized I should have made a pitchfork, not a broom.  Oh, well.  I know they’ll enjoy the little gifts they find inside!  Thanks again, gals!!
