This is one of the swap cards I created for swapping at Leadership.  It’s really a very simple card to create or recreate if you so choose!

While it takes on a Valentine’s appearance, I think it can be used for all kinds of occasions of celebration.

Sharing Favorite Displays from Stampin’ Up! Leadership Conference

14 Jan

I got so many good ideas from attending Stampin’ Up!s Leadership Conference this past week in Orlando.  Thought it was about time that I shared some of my favorite displays with you!  All of the samples feature sets and products from the new Spring Catalog!

Having a Blast at Stampin’ Up! Leadership!

11 Jan

I just couldn’t wait until I got home from Orlando to share my experience at the Manager’s Reception last night. Check out this picture, can you guess where I was?

I was at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Stamp in’ Up! Had rented it out just for us! The food was incredible. Check out the size of this turkey leg. I swear it was 10 pounds!

We had access to all the rides too! I avoided those just because I didn’t think the motion would mix with the food! By the way did I say I really enjoyed the butter beer? Not sure if I was on #2 or 3 in this one!

To top off the night I was chosen to be the wizard and had a wand choose me! Here’s my little beauty complete with a Phoenix hair!

So look out, I’m now armed!
