So what is one of the best decisions you have ever made?? I can say without reservations that becoming a Stampin’ Up demonstrator was one of mine. Why? The people! Ok, the products are amazing, the company is extraordinary, customer service is an example others should follow but the people…. That is where this decision has impacted me the most. When my dear upline Brandi planted the seed for me to become a demo, I could have never predicted where the journey would take me. My husband got me my demonstratorship as a birthday present. Yep….pretty awesome present!! If someone had told me then that I would even enter the Artisan Design Team competition, I would have laughed. That fact that I actually BECAME one of those team members is beyond anything I could have dreamed. The friendships that I have developed with other members of my upline, with my FMS team mates, with the Stampin’ Addicts, with the Artisan Design Team, and with so many other amazing stampers are precious to me in a way that defies explanation. My life is more blessed because I took that step to become a demonstrator!
So when we got this stamp set called Best Decision Ever for the Leadership Display Boards, I fell in love. I fell in love with everything behind that stamp! I wanted to created a really cute card that reflects the fun in stamping with friends and I hope I did it here. This one meant a lot to me!
Using this fun paper from Kaleidescope DSP I created a square 4-1/4″ card (use Whisper White as the base underneath). Then stamp this fun sentiment in Strawberry Slush. I cut it by hand before the Word Bubbles Framelits were available but those would make the card even faster. Tie on a button with some White Baker’s Twine and done. But really, this needed a special envelope don’t you think? Yeah, me too. So I made one with the same DSP using the Envelope Punch Board. The rounded corners on the card are from the Punch Board too.
This set is an incentive set available as a demonstrator. This card is fun to use if you already are a demo (and you already know what I mean about becoming a demo). If you are not, consider it. Really. It is a decision that might be one of your best ever too!
