I just returned from the Stampin' Up! Convention in Salt Lake City. I had a marvelous time hanging out with my Stampin' Pretty Pals, learning amazing new ideas and seeing future products that will dazzle you in the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog starting Sept. 1.
A BIG THANK YOU to my wonderful customers, my Pals, fellow demonstrators and Stampin' Pretty readers for your support over the last year (and beyond)! I had a fabulous Awards Night while in SLC. Photos coming soon. I was named one of the Top 10 U.S. Demonstrators of the Year (#6 based on a combination of sales, recruiting and leadership), #4 for most promotions in my direct downline to Supervisor and up and #1 in the company for most promotions in my direct downline to Senior Associate. This final achievement is extra special because it honors my deep commitment to my downline, the Stampin' Pretty Pals. Not a bad showing overall considering there are over 40,000 demonstrators in the U.S. The reality is still sinking in.
This week's Mojo Monday card (MOJO200) went together in a snap–especially good news since my flight yesterday was cancelled and I got home much later than expected to create today's card. I relied on a "cooperative" mojo sketch, pretty designer series paper and simple elements to put a "look" together pronto.
STAMPIN' PRETTY TIPS:
- Mocha Morning Specialty Designer Series Paper is a luscious blend of Soft Suede, Basic Black, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla. It landed without any second guessing on My Favorite Stampin' Up! Accessories List (Stampin' Up! 2011-2012 Idea Book and Catalog).
- A bold circle of polka dots (2 3/4") is matted on a circle of Crumb Cake (3"). Producing circles in the perfect size is easy with the Circle Scissor Plus. Here's a helpful video tutorial with tips for successful circle making!
- Pursuit of Happiness stamp set is part of My Favorite New Stampin' Up! Stamps List. I love the versatility of messages and fonts. See stamp set images at the end of this post.
- A patterned trio of hearts plays on the sentiment and keeps the look clean.
