World Spectacular

I was playing around with the items in the World spectacular product suite and came up with a few birthday cards.  The stamp set is You're Amazing, found in the current catalog and I've been going to that set lately for a bunch of different things!   I found some similar ideas and decided to stamp a few with CASEd ideas already in mind.  I haven't been able to stamp too much as of late so this was a real treat!  Thanks for stopping by!  Sarah

It's time to freshen up!  Stampin' Up! is having a color make over and I think you will be pleased with the results!  As you look at the list above, you will see plenty of familiar colors, and a new color, smoky slate.  I am very excited about these new addtions and am thrilled to see Crushed Curry again!  Of course, when new colors arrive, a few must go.  Click here for a list of those colors.  Plenty of more information to come!  Sarah

Photopolymer Stamp Sets

Stampin' Up! has searched long and hard for just the right material to be able to introduce completely clear stamping. And they have found it. We are super excited to announce that we now have wood-mount, clear-mount AND photopolymer stamps! The new photopolymer will be an addition to our stamp line and will appeal to all types of stampers. Our top-quality photopolymer has just enough give to create a perfectly stamped image every time and with the introduction of our firm-foam pads, let's just say they're meant for each other! Photopolymer stamps will also be unique, fun designs that will inspire you and provide more versatile options you may not see in our traditional wood- and clear-mount stamp options.
What makes them so great?
They're entirely transparent for perfect placement every time!
They are durable. The photopolymer material is designed to last.
Can you say sticky? These stamps stick amazingly well to our clear blocks.
They're age tested. They won't yellow or cloud up over time.

Think Spring!

Hello everyone!  Here is an attempt at Spring.  I don't mind this weather all that much since it makes the school year go by faster and it's always a great time to bake and stamp, which I haven't done in months!  Although I stamped a few things for my downline today on the big snow day!  The pictures above are a few shots taken from convention 2011.  I was cruising through a few of my SD cards for some inspiration (actually I was trying to find that one picture on a memory card of 3567 photos, but found it)!  So, I came across a few of these, and thought I would share.  I could use another snow day and make it a stamp day!  Thanks for the visit!  Sarah

Leadership, Day 3

Carmen and I are hanging out after a very eventful day.  We are drinking some pumpkin juice, enjoying some chocolate and watching some football.  Carmen is letting me get my sport fix for a few minutes, hee hee.  As you can see we are having a great time!  Plenty of great ideas all around.  We noticed the Stampin' Up! Semi on the way to our hotel today, isn't it great?  NOTE:  Obviously, it is not January.  I found this post and archived it, oops!  Well I have dug out from winter now and thought I would dust off the blog for a bit.  We'll see where it goes from here!  Sarah

Leadership Highlights, Day 2

What a great day!  Leadership was full of excitement with announcements galore!  Everything from a Dude set to Paper Pumpkin!  My goodness!   Above, you will see a picture of the stage.  It was very beautiful and Shelliesque.  Carmen is pictured with the new Paper Pumpkin kits, the "try it" kit and the "welcome kit."  Those kits are going to be a hit.  Bonnie Thurber introduced this new product and she was so fired up about it.  I'm excited to bring it home and share with all of the sistas!  Classes were great and our organized swap was a hit as well!  Enjoy my flower obsession photo!  Sarah

Leadership Highlights

We had a super opportunity yesterday as we packed bags and bags of product!  These sacks of product will be dontated to teachers in schools around the central Florida area.  Demonstrators stuffed plenty of bags today and we had a great time doing it!  We were able to write a quick note on the tag of each bag we packed.  I loved that!  Sarah

Leadership, Day One

Hello friends!  If anyone kmows what kind of flower/plant this is, let me know.  It's part of the 2004 flower obession.  This flower was a big deal at the time, I just had to take another shot.  Sure is unique!
Leadership is underway and we were able to check out product boards, swap and check out all of then items and product suites.  SU does such a nice job showcasing everything!  The card above was located at one of the product shares.  So cute!
One of the highlights of the day was our time spent at managers reception.  I met Marti there and we hung out at the event together.  We had a great time riding on rollercoasters and simulations rides in the Harry Potter themed park.  That simulation ride was amazing!  We were spoiled the entire evening with great food, some fun drinks (I brought some pumpkin juice back for Carmen, great bottle souvenir) and plenty of awesome stamping friends.  It was great to get to know Marti as we cruised around the park.  Thanks to Stampin' Up for this great experience.  Sarah

Hello from Leadership!

Hello everyone!  I am back!  The pictures above are from Leadership 2013!  We arrived today and are having a great time!  We walked all over the city in 80 degree weather which was awesome!  We went through the convention center, which is huge, and checked things out.  We ran into Shelli (but kept our cool).  We walked 5 miles and we could be tour guides, kid you not!  Tonight was low key as I played with my new camera.  Carmen and I went down memory lane as the last time we were here (in 2004) was Angie's first convention.  Boy has it changed!  It also dawned on me that this (bottom picture) area was where the flower photo obsession began!  My first flower photos were right here!  Too funny! It is so great to bring up the blog again.  It's been too long.  Tomorrow we begin in the morning but the main event is at noon.  So we may not blog until later in the evening.  We have swaps to get done too, shocker!  Check back often!  Great to be back!  Sarah

Happy SU! Anniversary, Kristine!

Sista Kristine is celebrating eight years as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator today!  I can hardly believe that!  She is pictured above on the left.  Notice her summer starfruit bag?  She is an awesome demonstrator, sister, sista and friend.  She has had some awesome workshops as of late and she has given me a bunch of Halloween cards to share with all of you!  Congratulations to her and we are thrilled that she is in our group!  She has been very dedicated considering she is a few hours away from our group, but she keeps that inspiration going in all of us!  Yeah for you, Kristine!  Sarah

Time to start thinking about Fall!

When the calendar turns to September, it is all about Fall decorating at our house.  It is heart of my busiest time of year, but I love everything about it!  Sista Kristine and I have been stamping this weekend and she created this awesome 3x3 love note for Halloween.  It's adorable!  Check it out in the new Holiday Mini Catalog.  There is a link to the right.  You will find all sorts of awesome products in this Howlstooth and Scaringbone Suite!  Thanks, Kristine!  Sarah
