Leadership Conference, Friendships & Gifts


Leadership 2104 was fabulous!  I got to see some dear friends and meet new friends from across the states.  The weather was warmer than Nebraska...WOOT!! and, the daily buzz of creative inspiration from Stampin' Up!'s stage presentations to card swaps to the never ending walls of shared creations posted throughout the facility.  I can never get definitely go home with ants in your pants to stamp!

This year, I managed to actually get a few gifts made for a couple of special for my wonderful upline, Tami White....and, the other, my fun-loving roommate, Oksana, who has a contagious giggle.  I saw the idea for these cute M&M jars on Pinterest and thought it would be fun to create one using the new Perfect Pennants Stamp set and coordinating Banners Framelits Dies.  The stamp set and framelits are available for purchase as a bundle...a 15% savings for you!  I could not resist using the new (my favorite) paper from the Fresh Prints Designer Series stack, the Arrows Textured Embossing Folder, and the 1-1/4" Burlap Ribbon to help gussie up these jars.  Gorgeous, right?!!  LOVE it!

After exiting the stage, I felt so humbled...eagerly setting goals to do better and MORE of what I have accomplished during the last 5 years. Many, many thanks to everyone who has supported me with my beautiful family, my wonderful and talented customers who have chosen me to be their Stampin' Up! demonstrator...AND, for my AMAZING team members!
