Stylin`Stampin` Blog Hop – Get Comfy & Join Us Today!


Hello there! Thanks for joining the Stylin` Stampin` Blog Hop! Today I wanted to share something that I finally took time to make. I think it was Leadership.. maybe?..Convention 2012, maybe?…. where I seen this first. I drooled and fell in love and told myself.. I HAVE to make that for my studio. If you visit Shelli Gardner’s Blog ( ) you will know exactly what I am talking about – that beautiful banner! I’ve had this on my “things to do” list for a LONG time.. and I finally got it done! Why? Because many of the stamp set I used on this, will be retiring. That makes me sad.. they are all beautiful sets, but I know what Stampin` Up! has in store for us in the NEW catalog and its beautiful – the new embellishments and stamps.. are to die for (as always!). To give these sets up, is a little hard.. but at least I can say, I showed them some love before parting with them.

Oh… before I forget.. ! Please say hi and let me know you stopped by! See that little thought bubble under the title? Click on that.. and leave a little note! Thank you so much! *hug*

The Create Banner!

I took a picture of each banner individually so you can see each close up. I’ll have to take a picture later of it hung up.. but right now I can’t.. because I do not want you to see my messy table – LOL!
