Happy 8th Anniversary!

Saturday, March 19, 2011

I can’t believe it!  I have been a demonstrator for 8 years already!  Time sure flies when you are having fun!  I mailed in my paperwork to Stampin’ Up! on March 18, 2003!  I can’t believe it has been that long ago; to be honest with you I have loved every minute of it.  I look back thru the years at the catalogs and each new catalog is my favorite; they just keep getting better and better.  Not only do the catalogs keep getting better and better but the products in the catalogs keep getting better and better.  I would say my favorite item(s) in the catalog are the accessories; I have to have them all! 

To celebrate my Anniversary milestone I have some blog candy to giveaway. 

Level 3 hostess set Occasional Quotes, Level 1 In Color Paper Pack, and 3 spools of ribbon.

I will be giving away this lovely bundle of goodies on Monday, March 28.  To be entered into the drawing to receive the Blog Candy all you have to do is email me your answer to this question:
What is your favorite item(s) from the current Idea Book & Catalog?

Wait, I have more!

Place a $50.00 order with me (before shipping and tax) on my website HERE and receive a FREE Sale-a-bration item of your choice from the Sale-a-bration brochure PLUS an additional stamp set from me!  Here is your stamp set choices:
When you have placed your order email me with your choice of stamp set(s) you want (1 set for every $50.00 ordered).  I only have one of each except for the punch potpourri I have 2 of those sets both wood mount.  This deal will also end on Monday, March 28.

    Wow! COngratulations Glenda on 8 years! That’s awesome! I truly enjoy your blog and all of your awesome creations! Thank you for all you do! I learn so much from you! You’re such an inspiration and your creations make me smile!
    As far as my favorite from the catalog, that is a very hard question! Because I have so many favorites its hard to pick just one! Its like potato chips you can’t eat just one! LOL! I guess if I had to pick something I guess I would say their stamps- the quality is like nowhere else that I know of! And not just the quality of them but all the different catagories- there is something for EVERYONE! BUT like you I am an embellishmnt girl! Love those too! See, I told you I CAN’T pick just one!
    Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Again, thank you for all you do and for the chance to win an awesome giveaway! You’re so generous!
    Huge HUGS!

    Congratulations on your eight years with SU! I am a SU! girl, love all their products and tend to stay with their products. I love it all but have to say I am a punch fan. I own most of them and always want the newest ones as soon as they come out. Thanks for sharing your creations with us and for a chance at some wonderful blog candy. jmniffer at comcast dot net

    Congratulations on 8 years, that’s awesome. My favourites right now are the punches, especially the 5 petal fower punch. I am new to card making but am so addicted to it already 🙂

  6. Linda Zaworski says:

    CONGRATULATIONS!! YEAHH!!! 8 years is a great accomplishment!!! Here’s to 8 more!

    WoW…what is in the current catty…. besides the amazing punches, the OWL punch, the bird punch, the ribbon punch, all absolutely FABULOUS!!!! But the one thing I absolutely love are the clear sets and Clear Block set!!! How ingenious!!! LOVE IT!

  7. Debby McGillivray says:

    Congrats Glenda! I used to be a demo to, I was a demo for 6 years but couldn’t afford to be my best customer no more.
    I am in hog heaven over the punches in the big catty, I have many of SU punches and would never part with them. Love the owl punch I have seen so many things you can do with that punch besides the norm. I love the bat punch to, someone had done a border with that and it looked fantastic, needless to say I had to get that one to as if it has more than one use I can’t live with out it. I would say I own pretty close to half of the punches in the new book and still a couple more I want.
    Thanks for the chance Glenda, I love the paper packs & SU ribbons to, I would love to win this.

  9. Kathy Brown says:

    Congratulations on 8 years! That’s fantastic!!

    I can’t pick just one thing either. I’m a serious SU customer and have so much of it. I love ribbon and the half pearls and I especially love the stamps—the whole reason I love SU! Nobody seems to compare!

    Happy 8th blogaversary!! I have to say that my favorite items in the catty are the dies & punches. I am trying to collect them all!!The DSP’s are hard to resist, too!!!

  11. Bonnie S says:

    Congrats on your anniversary. Good job! I really like your easel card. Oh, and in the catalog, I seem drawn to the Big shot and all of the dies, but then punches always get me too. But then at least I am a preschool teacher, and we seem to use my punches all of the time–world’s easiest eyes and noses, etc. for our projects. We save soooo much time that way.
    Thanks and God bless,
    Bonnie S

  13. Bea says:

  14. Karen T says:

    Besides the “whole” catalog I’d have to say the ribbon. I need all the colors. It doesn’t matter which type but I need all of them! Congratulations on your 8 years! And thanks for the candy!!

  15. Judy says:

    Happy 8th Anniversary! I love the punches and coordinating stamp sets and am trying to collect them all.

    Congratulations on creative crafting & your 8 years as a Stampin Up Demonstrator! I have enjoyed your blog site and would like to enter your Blog Candy Giveaway. My favorite
    item(s) from the current Idea Book & Catalog would have to be the “Punches”. I am a “Punch Freak” I love any set that they coordinate with. Stampin Up is so great because they take the quess work out of coordinating crafts, no matter if it is the inks, paper, stamp sets, punches or accessories (Oh la la…..ribbons, buttons, and dies, Oh My!) No other company does that like they do!!! Well again…Congratulations…Hers’s to hoping I win!!! Blessings while crafting to you, Toni

  17. Toni J says:

    Yeah, What a great celebration for you. I also love the punches and their versatilityand the fact they are coming out with so many that match the stamps. Congratulatios

  18. Gay Ferland says:

Thanks for the opportunity for some blog candy… My favorite item in this years catalog is the MDS. I own it but have yet to use it….hahaha!! Someday I will play with it and add some digital downloads.

  19. Jennifer Augustin says:

    Congrats on 8 years!!! My favorite is Cherry Cobbler. I love the color and most of cards reflect it!! I also love the punches!!!

  20. Sandy says:

    Happy 8th AnniversaryGlenda! I agree with others-it’s SO tough to pick just one thing-but I am going to go with what I am using the most right now & that would be punches.

  21. Dawn Hoffman says:

    Congrats on 8 years Glenda! I just became a demonstrator recently and hope I’m still going strong in 8 years! =-) Although it’s hard to decide since I love it all….my favorite thing in this year’s catty would have to be all of the Big Shot dies and embossing folders–they make it so easy to create beautiful cards!
