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.

Today is the official Sale-a-Bration Kick off Day and I’m excited to be a part of this huge Sale-a-Bration Blog Hop!  Sale-a-Bration seems to get better every year, and this year is no exception!!  They’ve even added a couple of amazing products that are free with any $100 order.

First I should explain what Sale-a-Bration is… from January 3 – March 31, 2018, you can earn FREE PRODUCTS for every $50 you spend from Stampin’ Up!  CLICK HERE and look for the Sale-a-Bration Catalog to see all the products you can get for FREE!

Finally, I’ve come up with a cute project you can make using $50 in supplies, which would earn you a FREE Sale-a-Bration item!  

I’ll list the items here to make this cute set of notecards:

  • Whisper White Narrow Note Cards & Envelopes  $8
  • Tutti-Frutti 6X6 Designer Series Paper  $10
  • Fruit Basket Stamp Set  $16
  • Tutti-Frutti Classic Stampin’ Spots  $9
  • Tutti-Frutti Washi Tape  $8

Total for this project = $51 = 1 FREE SALE-A-BRATION ITEM!

So, I was thinking about ways to make this into a DELUXE project using $100 in supplies & earning you a FREE DELUXE Sale-a-Bration item!

I’ll list the items here to make this cute DELUXE set of notecards:

  • Whisper White Narrow Note Cards & Envelopes  $8

  • Lemon Lime Twist 3/8″ Mini Striped Ribbon  $8

Total for this project = $103 = 2 FREE SALE-A-BRATION ITEMS OR 1 DELUXE ITEM!

Here’s a few close up’s:

Notice the sequins, the itty bitty punches!!!, the washi, & the lined envelopes!  These are just so darn cute!

If you’d like to make this cute set, all you need to do is attend my New Catalog & Sale-a-Bration Launch Party on Sunday, January 14th, noon – 3pm and bring a friend who hasn’t stamped with me in 6 months!  You both will get to make this Tutti-Frutti DELUXE notecard set for FREE!

I received a swap from Mary Alice Bellis recently that convinced me to get the Make a Medallion stamp set!  You can’t really “purchase” that set- but it’s available for just 2 more weeks through Sale-A-Bration.  FREE with any $50 purchase!

Look at this Fun Fold!!  I’d never seen one like this & it’s pretty special!  Thanks, Mary Alice, for such a great idea!  She’s got a Marvelous blog, by the way!

This is 3-step stamping!  Simple to do.  All the images fit inside each other to make this beautiful design.  You’ll find lots of layers in this Fun Fold Card, with plenty of room to write your message.

New In Colors!

I’ve only had time to make 2 cards since I opened my box of  items from the new Stampin’ Up! Catalog.  I’ve been working way too much & can’t wait until the weekend when I should have a little more time to play.

Playful Palette Create With Cheryl

Don’t you love these new In Colors?!!  This is Peekaboo Peach & Sweet Sugarplum.  I had a piece of Cherry Cobbler on my desk & added that.  Wasn’t sure if it would work, but I like it.

Playful Palette Create With Cheryl (2)

You’ll be seeing a lot of this pineapple!  It’s from a new stamp set called Pop of Paradise.  The new ribbon comes in all the new In Colors & is called Ruched Ribbon.  I had to look up ruched & it means “gathering or pleating”.  So now we know.  It’s kind of crinkly.

The Designer Series Paper is called Playful Palette & had beautiful colors & patterns!

Mark your calendars for the May Card Classes!

Saturday, May 28 at 2pm or Tuesday, May 31 at 3pm.

We’ll make 4 different cards with envelopes to match for $10 (or FREE with your $20 order placed that day).

Hope to see you there!

Christmas with my Club!
