My Stampin' Story & Blog Candy!!!

Good morning blog friends!

I thought it would be nice to share my Stampin' Story, since I promised to share my very first cards with you today. It all started when a friend I met on eBay sent me a handmade card. We met through collecting Snoopy Jewelry and she sent me this adorable card!

Isn't it just too cute? The thing that really caught my eye was the main image was embossed. I've always been a crafter and when I saw the card, I knew I wanted to learn how to do it. I wrote to my friend to thank her for the card and asked her some questions. She told me to check out the Stampin' Up! website to see if I liked their images and if I did, to find a demonstrator in my area. I then found Becky and I went to her house. (I think it was the next day:) The first thing she showed me was how to emboss. I was hooked! I wound up ordering my first stamp set, which was "Trick or Treat". Here are the first two cards I made with the set. I also used the set "Bitty Boos", which I had bought on eBay, since it was retired at that point. 

I stamped with Becky for 3 years and finally decided to become a demonstrator on October 1st, 2009, so I'm coming up on my 2nd Anniversary.

In celebration of my 2nd Anniversary, I'm going to do some Blog Candy! I have a brand new Birthday Bakery stamp set.

All you have to do to win is leave a comment telling me what your first Stampin' Up! Stamp set was. I will pick a winner on Saturday morning using Random.org and announce the winner then.

Thanks so much for coming by and I hope you have a great day!!!


  1. Yikes! I have no clue what my first set was. I know when I was introduced to SU, I went nuts over the catty, and just about bought everything in it! Ha! I still have some of those earlier sets!

  2. "Define Your Life" was my first stamp set...and I still have it.
    Congratulations on your milestone anniversary... Love your blog!

  3. First of all Congratulations on your anniversary. I really don't remember the name of my first SU set. It was a very long time ago but if I do remember anything it had snowmen in it. Sorry not to be more specific.

  4. Happy anniversary! Although I just became a demonstrator in July 2011, I see my first stamp set was dated 1995. I'm not sure what the name of the set is, but it's a very cute snowman holding a bird.


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment. Have a great day!
