HAP 2022 Card Contest

 

Happy Tuesday!!

 

One of the highlights of my Annual Hostess Appreciation Party is the Card Contest.

 

Participants had to use all current SU! product (from the Annual Catalog only).

Then everyone voted for their favorite design.

 

Here's the board of all of this year's wonderful entries:

My 20th Annual HAP

 

Thank you to everyone came to my Hostess Appreciation Party!!

 

We had a wonderful time celebrating!

I hadn't been able to have a HAP in 2 years.

So we had lots of reasons to celebrate.

 

Todd helped me make a whole bunch of yummy food!

But I was in charge of the stamping projects. ;)

Rojeana posed with her favorite fruit salad we make every year from all the fruit we pick in the summer. A couple years ago we had to double the size bin we make it in. :)

Tyler came with flowers and Walter for a little bit.

They both said hi to me, and then Walter saw Todd who was trying to take a pic of Tyler and I.

He was yanking the leash to get away to see his buddy--and then everyone else around. ;)

One of my favorite parts of the day was special recognition--& gifts....

 

These 3 ladies--Kathy Polderman, Elaine Brunink and Diane Field--have been my customers since the beginning! 20 whole years!!!

20220117_061359294_iOS

 

These 4 ladies--Georgianne Everhart, Sharon Kruse, Cindy Booth & Michelle Jager--are still in my first and longest running Stampers Club. (2 club members are missing.) We started meeting 17 years ago!! They've been stamping with me every other month since then!

20220117_061405284_iOS

 

 

And of course, I had to recognize and thank my Dazzling Demos team members that could make it, too! (Yes, I include my team. It started out because my team was too small to do something like this for them--lots of people is more fun! Now, it's just a thing!)

None of them have been team members even close to 20 years, but I still appreciate them all!

20220117_061411249_iOS

 

 

And then of course, there's My Love. I owe him so much! He's my ultimate support--and my He-man, too. He's been with me since the beginning, too! ;) actually...almost 35 years since we started dating.

20220117_061417302_iOS

 

 

 

I'll share more about our stamping projects and the Card Contest this week.

 

 

Have an amazing day!

 

ps: If you want to be included in the fun next year....

20 YEARS!!!!

 

I've now been a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator 20 YEARS!!!

Woohoo!!!!

I love my job!!

 

My Hostess Appreciation Party this Saturday will be a big celebration!

I'm so excited!!

 

Recently in my Dazzling Demos Facebook group, I shared this pic for a Throwback Thursday.

If ANY of this was SU! product, it's retired. ;) www.dazzledbystamping.com

It's the oldest pic of a card I could find that I made.

It was Liz's birth announcement.

So that means actually my sisters and I all worked on this. :)

 

That's how I started stamping.

Teresa and I "found" the hobby.

She bought all the stuff and played.

Then we ALL worked on assembly line projects like this and shower invitations.

 

It wasn't until she had a Stampin' Up! workshop for one of her friends that we found SU!

 

She gave me her catalog for shopping before her workshop.

That was it.

I was IN.

But it wasn't until I had my own workshop and my demo said, "hey--you'd be good at this" that I signed up (months later).

 

She planted a seed! :)

 

I'm so thankful for my Stampin' Up! business!!

All the friendships I've gained--and even confidence!

My business, my customers, my team members have been such a huge blessing in my life--OUR lives!

 

Thank you for 20 years!!

 

I have some giveaways in mind, but I decided not to stress myself out more this week, besides getting ready for my HAP.

 

So watch next week!

 

Speaking of HAP, I shared this pic yesterday on Facebook.

 

20220110_075638302_iOS.SU

Haha!

Yes, it's real--at "my" house. 

No, it's not current. (I might have convinced people if there was snow on the ground!)

And no, it wasn't MY orders being delivered.

I found out later our neighbors had a hot tub cover delivered.

But I HAD to take advantage of the photo op. ;)

 

 

 

Now for some current....

For now, here's a couple (SAB focused) swap ideas I was playing with.

I only used one idea....

Which design is YOUR preference???

Sweet Conversations

 

Good Morning!

Happy Friday!

 

Do you "celebrate" Valentine's Day?

 

Todd and I have never done anything huge--most commonly I would make a nice dinner for us.

 

But one particular year--many years ago--stands out in my mind....

 

Todd had recently mentioned he was in the mood for Franco American Spaghetti and hadn't had it in a really long time.

 

Totally goofy, right?

 

Well, even goofier is FOR VALENTINE'S DAY, I bought a case of the cans of spaghetti as a gift and made it as our Valentine's dinner.

 

Haha!

What a romantic I am!!!

I really don't think Todd was as impressed with the meal as I thought he might be. ;)

And I haven't bought it again. :D

 

 

So I'm here to share my Live! closeups with you.

 

As I mentioned in my Live!, I like going for non-traditional colors.

I often stick with colors that are included in DSP from a suite.

 

 

So here's my first project:

 

Sweet Conversations bundle, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

 

And here are both versions of my other card.

Which is your fave?
