Before I get to the 2008 Holiday Mini Catalog Samples...
About a year ago, I was fortunate enough to meet some wonderful fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators here in MN. When I attended my first MN Leader Stamp & Share meeting (for Sr Supervisors and above), organized by Terri G - I felt like I found a group of women that I felt at home with! They welcomed me into their group with open arms and I so appreciated that! Thank you so much!
Every 6 months - I make it a point to attend this awesome meeting, which was just a couple of weeks ago. I enjoyed fabulous displays, inspiring and creative presentations and just plain fun visiting with my newfound girlfriends! In addition, I was invited to share a creative idea (I shared my September Stamp Camp "Cross the Border") as well as talk about my Founder's Circle experience with Georgia (who is Demonstrator of the Year #16). It was kind of nice to "revisit" my FC trip - it was such a fabulous experience.
Of course you can't have an SU get-together without swapping. So here are some of the swaps that I received. Actually - the three I'm sharing today are the ones that were voted the "most favorite" by our group. All cards feature stamp sets or accessories from the new 2008 Holiday Mini Catalog.
This card uses the "Cardinal Christmas" stamp set. I don't know who the creator was - there wasn't any name with the card. The white "holly" has glitter on it.
This card was created by Lisa S. She used the Winter Post stamp set and the fabulous Alpine Ribbon (I love both of these new products!)
This card was created by Georgia G. It uses the Deck the Halls stamp set and the Serif Essentials Alphabet Dies for the Big Shot.
I have a few more swaps that I'll be sharing, so check back soon!
