Hawaii Vacation, Part 3

The final installment on the trip of a lifetime.  To recap, 20 years ago, my sister, Mary, introduced me to Stampin’ Up! and I have earned the incentive trip almost every year.  On this, my 20th anniversary as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I invited Mary as my guest to a wonderful week on Oahu.

When her kids asked her what she wanted for her birthday this year, Mary said that she wanted cash so that she could sign us up for a helicopter ride on our trip.  An amazing ride, and another check off my bucket list!  Thanks, sis!!

I had the best seat in the helicopter, left side on the outside front, but most of the photos I took from there reflected back the black and white top I was wearing, so these shots were taken from the front windshield, some by me and some by Mary.  And I will close with a very short montage video.








Friendly Wishes

May Top 20

Each month, I send hand-stamped cards to my top sellers for the previous month.  I am actually a month behind, so these are the cards for April.  But with a brand new catalog and lots of fun new stamps to play with, I’ll get caught up really fast!

These cards use the new Friendly Wishes stamp set with wonderful sentiments when you want to reach out.  They also use my favorite new Designer Paper, Bohemian, that has all my favorite colors.  One of the colors is the new Delightful Dijon.  But I have to admit that I LOVE the Banner Triple Punch!!  One punch to trim a perfect banner shape in 3 different sizes!!

Tabs for Your 2015-2016 Stampin’ Up! Catalog

I like to add tabs to my catalog so that I can find what I am looking for quickly. So many of my friends like them that I decided to make a video that shows just how I do it.

You can make your own tabs, or, if you would rather, you can get a pdf file ready for printing on a full-size label sheet. You could even print them on card stock and use glue to attach them, but the labels make it really easy. If you want to make it even easier, I will print and punch your tabs for you and you can add them to your catalog. The choice is yours!

To order the pdf file for $1.25, use this button. Look on the Thank You page for the dowloadable file.

To order the tabs, printed, punched, and mailed to you for $5.00 (US addresses only, please):
