2021 stampin’ up! artisan design team…

11.08.2020…..Hi everyone!  Yesterday, approximately 10,000 Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world, wrapped up the three-day Onstage at Home (#onstageathome) virtual event! And….what a fabulous event it was!!! It was jam-packed with stamping presentations, demonstrator recognitions, and break-out classes full of tips, tricks, and lots of info to help us “better our best” with our Stampin’ Up! businesses!

With all of that being said, this is a much different post than my usual weekly posts, but it’s beyond exciting, to say the least! I was selected to be one of the 21 members of the 2021 Stampin’ Up Artisan Design Team, from around the world!

Above is the gorgeous, personalized memento box that all the Artisan Design Team Members were awarded…which included a Welcome letter, a beautiful engraved bracelet from Tiffany’s, and a personalized Artisan Design Team stamp!

Back on the evening of September 28th , I received a call from Natalie Wallick White (Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Development Manager for the West Coast Region), letting me know that I had been selected for the Stampin’ Up! 2021 Artisan Design Team! Along with my happy tears and speechlessness, I was sooooooo ecstatic!!!  However…..I had to keep it a secret until it was announced at Onstage at Home (…that was the hard part!). I feel so blessed to be a member of Stampin’ Up! 2020 Artisan Design team, and…to be selected for the second year in a row is beyond what I could ever imagine!!!

Starting in January 2021, I will be participating with the rest of the Stampin’ Up! 2021 Artisan Design Team members, via the Stampin’ Up! corporate Facebook page and Instagram as well, and…..we will be showcasing projects created with the all wonderful products from our Stampin’ Up catalogs!  

With all of that being said, I am incredibly humbled and honored to be a part of this amazingly talented team, and am looking forward to sharing this journey with all of you during the coming year.  Thank you to Stampin’ Up! for giving me such an absolutely amazing opportunity!!!  I’m over the moon!

Wishing you creativity always,

#tgifc288 – going in circles…

10.30.20…..Happy Friday, everyone! It’s already time for another TGIF Challenge! I always have sooooo much fun with our TGIF Challenges! However…this week, I’m super excited because it’s a “Designer Takeover” Challenge, and…I’m the designer! On our last “Designer Takeover”, the amazingly talented Tami Hewlett was the designer, and I can’t wait to see what our other designers have in store for us the near future!

For my challenge, I chose “Going in Circles”, because I always seem to be adding some type of circle(s) to my projects. So…why not fill an entire project with circles…right? I hope you have a chance to play along with us this week, over at TGIF Challenges. We would love to see what you create!
