Pillow Gifts

.....I said, its the little things that mean so much....so here are a couple of BFF's pillow gifts

This cute idea is from Natasha (inkingoutofthebox) in Canada, and she will not be at convention with us....sad!  I met her at Leadership this year and what a lady she is!

Gum, yes please.....

I didnt show you everything in this little box, gotta keep the surprises alive for Becky in case she sneeks a peek, but if you are at convention, you can come to our room and see them in real life and touch them and everything....

And BFF is that....a true friend who shared Stampin' Up with me one day....

Pretty Postage Presentation

Becky has planned a down line meeting with a gift and card swap

So for my gift swap I designed a pizza box that holds a couple 3x3 cards and envelopes.  The stamp set is Pretty Postage on page 66 in the NEW catalog.  I didn't look at this set, or even consider buying it until after the cruise and I got these adorable mini card ideas.  This set also corridnates with the Postage Stamp Punch on page 212 in the NEW catalog.

The box opens to tissue wrapped cards and my business card information...

It IS all about the presentation....so wrapped pretty postage is how I will give these to all the gals attending....

I am big with the details, so the Convention 2011 tag is added to give it that extra touch....
You can have these same little gifts from me for being one of my team members, join my Stampin' Up team for $99 in July and start playing with us!

Making wonderful friends....

One of my many favorite parts about being in the Stampin' Up family is the friendships and creative people you meet.  So I am sharing a card with you from the Summer Mini Catalog.  On the Grow page 14 $11.95C and $15.95W  Marlene sent me this card in a group swap.  We share ideas with other demonstrators and learn techniques from each other....

Love this one too!  especially when Convention is right around the corner and I get to see Rhonda, who is the demonstrator that made this card.  So cute huh!  This is also from the Summer Mini Catalog, page 12, Travel Log   $29.95W and $21.95C....What a fun scrapbook set this would make for your summer vacation.

Do you want to be a part of a great family of creative people, join my Stampin' Up team today for $99!
