Wow! I'm totally blown away with the lovely emails and messages I received after my last post. Thank you so much for the love and support and most of all friendship.
I think I'm more shocked than anybody that I've actually earned the Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip! If you're not sure what this is all about, this is how Stampin' Up! explains it…
Every year, Stampin' Up! rewards the achievements of qualifying demonstrators with an amazing trip to an extraordinary locale where attendees participate in fun activities, relax in luxury, and – of course – stamp!
When I joined as a demonstrator just on 2 1/2 years ago I really only planned to buy at a discount and make cards as a hobby. I had heard about the Incentive Trip and was in awe of the achievers when I attended my first Convention in Brisbane in 2008. It seemed a world away from where I was.
Well, fast forward 2 years and here I am, still pinching myself. It just goes to show that ANYone can do this!
I can only say how incredibly blessed and grateful I am to have an AMAZING team who are now very special friends, some of the most wonderful and creative customers (aka stamping friends) and an incredibly supportive family. And, I'm so grateful to be working for (can I really call it 'work'?) a company that is so generous.
On to today's project… I'm excited to share this box set of cards made using the 2U Card Elements & More set (p142 IB&C) which I was recently given as a gift.
I loved working with this kit. Everything is included to make the sample project (the carousel card at the top of this post) but you can still change things around to make unique projects by adding some extra cardstock for example. Isn't it great how everything co-ordinates? I used some extra Ruby Red cardstock and DSP to make the box to hold the cards, and textured Chocolate Chip and Tempting Turquoise cardstock for the square card below.
Don't forget we only have just over a week left of Sale-a-bration. We're in the final days of Stampin' Up!'s big FREE STAMPS giveaway, but it's not too late to claim your free set (or get another one!). And if you've been thinking about joining up, I'd love to have a chat with you about how it can fit in with your life. Until the end of March, you can choose an extra stamp set (to $79.95 value) with the already great value starter kit!
