Anniversary Time Celebration!

HOORAY!!! It's time to CELEBRATE...my One Year Anniversary as a Stampin Up Demonstrator (click here for a little blast from the past from kool and the gang)! I love having an excuse to celebrate and give a little something away = )! I appreciate all of my blog friends who stop by and leave me kind and encouraging comments and it's not much...but I would LOVE to share a few of my favorite things (hey, wasn't that a song too?) with one lucky winner! Here's what I've selected for the BLOG CANDY:
(8) Sheets of DP: a variety of 6 x 6 sheets from my very favorite ~ Flowers For You
(6) Pieces of coordinating Ribbons....3 grosgrain & 3 polka dots (1 yard each)
(4) Sheets of coordinating colored cardstock (not pictured)

(1) Sheet of Shimmery White cardstock (not pictured)
(1) Container of my favorite glitter...Dazzling Diamonds!
(1) Cute little Heart/Hanger Stamp
(1) Little Tin for you to decorate


So...how do you get your name in the drawing? That's easy. Just leave me a comment under this post and tell me about one of YOUR favorite SU item from the Spring/Summer Collection or the upcoming Occasions Mini Catalog.
Everyone's welcome to enter. One entry per person please and I'll randomly draw one lucky winner on Monday morning!
Several of you have asked about how long I've been stamping...that's kind of a long story, but here's the condensed version. I was introduced to stamping about 20 years ago and it was love at first site. But life was busy and I didn't have the time or energy to invest in a hobby, so my projects were very simple and limited. Years later, my friends at work who took the time to attend SU workshops raved about what they were learning and I was astonished when I saw the projects they brought into work. Nancy Littrell worked in the office next to mine and she attended Leslie Miller's SU workshops. Another friend, Lyn, attended Cami Turnbow's SU workshops. Talk about inspiration...those girls are AMAZING. I never really made the connection about the difference between going to a "party" and going to a "workshop". I thought they were just going to buy stuff. So I skipped the workshops and just bought stuff. I ended up with this really random shelf full of supplies and no time to use them or clue what to do with them. A few years later, I resigned from my job, my youngest went off to college & found myself with the unexpected blessing of having the gift of time! I attended a SU workshop at my sweet friend Kim Miller's home last February and she introduced me to my dream job! I began stamping on a regular basis and investing in quality SU products. In August, with Nancy Littrell's help and encouragement, I started my gallery at SCS and began doing some of the challenges. She was right (she always is)...SCS is a great place to learn and grow. And in October, after Kim (Miller) insisted I was "ready"...she sat me down and showed me how to start a blog! People will tell you...the more time you spend stamping, the better you'll get...and I think that's really true. I've done more stamping this past year than I did the previous 19 years combined. I've learned a lot...and still have a lot more to learn. That's the best...waking up everyday and having something new to learn and a new way to express my creativity! So that's my story....and I'm stickin with it *wink* = )

I have some fun cards to show you ...but this post is already a mile long, so I'll do that a little later. Have a great day & I look forward to hearing about YOUR favorite SU products!!

Hi Nancy,
This is my first blog, so here goes! First let me start by telling you how wonderful I think you are. I really look forward to seeing your cards every day. You have been such an inspiration to me. Your cards give me such great ideas to "want" to do my own. What's even better, is going to one of your workshops and learning that I can! My favorite stamp set from the SU mini is: Full of Life. I love all of the cute sayings. I also love DP: Summer Picnic. It's perfect for summer. Well, thanks again...I would love to win you blog candy :)

Congratulations on your one year anniversary as a SU demo!! What fun goodies! The Occassions mini is really growing on me. I have been loving the She's All That samples on SCS. I know some people do not like it, but I love how different and modern that set is!

sgc said...

My favorite in the occasions catalog is the set "She's All That" because it is so different from most Stampin Up merchandise. I love to see something new and fresh! I do, however, like everything Stampin Up. Love, love, love their cardstock and inks and markers and stamp sets and embellishments--you see the pattern!

Regina Cornelius said...

oh wowzers! what a great blog candy! my favorite from the occasions mini is the ducky wheel. my daughter has loved rubber ducks for at least 2 years and she is only 2 1/2 yrs. that wheel is just kind of sentimental for me...for her love of ducks! as a matter of fact her words learned were 1st-dada, 2nd-mama, 3rd-"guck" for duck! gotta love it!

LorieR said...

Beautiful candy! It's hard to narrow it down! I love the BoHo Backgrounds set and the Berry Bliss DP.

Janet said...

Gosh that is a hard question! I have lots of favorites in the new catalogs, but the thing I ordered the most of is the new Soft Sky limited time color. I ordered the ink pad, refill and cardstock. I love that shade of pale blue/green.

Cat said...

hi Nancy! you are too sweet with the candy :) i'm just loving the Spring Picnic paper in the occasions mini! but since i'm a bit of a paper hog, that's no surprise!

Have only recently discovered SU from here in the UK and it's really difficult to choose one thing as I want it all!! I particularly love the ribbons but it's the fact that the paper, c.s., ribbons, stamps, ink, etc all mix and match that makes me want to buy it all!!

Wow! One Year! Congrads! Personally, I love, love the all in the family set & can't wait to get my hands on it. I have posted lots of sets on ebay today hoping to buy everything on my wish list soon without DH finding out. Hee Hee! Your blog candy is phenominal! Hope Monday is my lucky day!

You have a great blog and just lovely work. Congratulations on your 1-year anniversary - next milestone...your 5-year walk! (I'm having mine this year!)

Favorite? There is not enough room to list them all....but I really do love Flower Fusion! (May I mention our Level 3 hostess set - Time Well Spent? It's a very close second!)

Hmmm...that's a tough one. I'd have to say Embrace Life which pairs nicely with the Ginger Blossoms dp. You simply can't go wrong with that combination. Then again Time well spent (one that I don't have) is fantastic.

Congratulations, Nancy on your 1st year anniversary with Stampin' Up! I have been admiring that new set, Tart and Tangy. It is going to be a "must have" for me. Thanks for sharing all your awesome ideas with us.

Congratulations on your one year anniversary! I check your blog every day and love,love,love your work. I think my favorite new item is the silver hodgepodge hardware. I am a silver girl from way back. It's coming tomorrow and I'm so excited! Keep up the good work!

Congratulations, Nancy, on your one year anniversary. Thanks for all the great ideas and your wonderful blog. The next item I need from the catalog will be the large star punch. There are so many things you can do with it:)

Congrats on your anniversary! Great blog too! My favorites from the Spring/Summer catalog right now are the Jersey Shore DSP and Pumpkin Pie striped ribbon. I can't seem to put them away!

Thanks for the link back to this post :) Happy Anniversary!!! You wanna know what I like from the new catalog?? Well...I don't have this set yet but really want it. It's called Smarty Pants - on page 151. It has several cute sayings that will go with a TON of stamps I already have! I'm always looking for cute fun sayings. This set is on my wish list :)

Happy First Birthday! Thanks for the chance to win some great goodies! My favorite new item from the catalog is the Always Set. That heart is so beautiful to work with!

Tracy said...

Happy anniversary! I've been loving your blog for the longest time. I'm not too into SU, I only have one stamp set. But I have been eyeing up that butterfly you've been using lately. It's gorgeous!

Heather F said...

I think the set I love the most is Embrace Life! I can't stop using it! Thanks for the chance!

I am loving the silver hodgpodge hardware but I am most excited about By ones and twos. Friends of our are anxiously awaiting for the child they are adopting from China. I am so glad to see a set for adoptive parents. I love your samples with Merci and can't wait to play with that set later this week. Thanks for offering such great blog candy! Retta

I didn't get the Merci SAB but now I have to have it and I only have 3 days to get in an order. Thank you for sharing all your lovely creations and celebrating with us.

I love your style! Your cards are so professional looking. I'll be casing a lot from here. What great inspiration I've found here!

Right now my favorite is the Cutie Pie Paper matched with Bashful Blue and Apricot Appeal with a touch of Rose Red cardstock. I can do so much with it and it's summery.
