Blog Candy to Celebrate 18 years!

  18 years

Today is a big day for me!  

I'm celebrating my 18th birthday as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator!  

If someone would have told me 18 years ago, that I would be blogging, posting videos and having LIVE events on Facebook I would have laughed in their face.  The truth is that I never wanted to be a demonstrator.  I was happy just stamping and living in my little creative world.  I reluctantly agreed after a friend persistently urged me.  BEST. DECISION. EVER!   Isn't it funny how life stretches us?!  

And, it's been wonderful!  

Blog Candy

I love to paper craft. I love to teach and I love Stampin' Up! products. Maybe it's that contagious joy that I get from these things that has taken me on the 18 year journey.  Regardless, I'm so glad you're here to celebrate with me today! 

In light of the occasion I'd like to give away some Blog Candy!

Hi, Lisa.
My favorite Holiday product, (wow, that is hard), would have to be Star of Light. I will love using those beautiful Spirit-filled sentiments on my Christmas cards this year.

Anna Arthur

Star of Light stamp set and dies are my favorite. It would be great to create from this set. Thanks very much for the chance to add these to my "stash"

Holly Pedersen

Hi Lisa happy anniversary! I like jar of Haunts because the mummy is so darn cute. Thanks for the inspiration you give on your blog.

Cindy Jo Milbrath

Good morning, Lisa! I have to cast my vote for the Star of Light stamp set bundle being my favorite pick from this Holiday Catalog. Together the stamp set and dies offer so much creative potential! I also chose it for the beautiful sentiments.
I think the mini pinecones are awfully darn cute, though!

Linda Snyder

My favorite stamp set is the Star of Light bundle. Can't wait to start on several Christmas card ideas that I have picked out to make. Love all the great sentiments this stamp set offers!

Cyndie S

Morning Lisa. It is so hard ro choose because I like most of the things in the catalog. But I manage to single it out to the Christmas Pines Bundle. I like anything woodsy and I love the pinecones cut with the copper foil. Congrats on your anniversary!

Dayle Schenk

Good morning and congratulations on 18 years! My favorite product(s) from the Holiday catalog is the Cookie Cutter Christmas Bundle and the copper paper. To me, this is one of the best holiday catalogs Stampin' Up! has ever put out!


Congrats on 18 years!! I'm so glad you are sharing your creative talent with us. My favorite holiday bundle is the Christmas Pines. Like Cyndie said I think the pinecones in copper foil are so, so pretty and I also love the pine boughs dies. Thanks for offering the blog candy today. Have a wonderful day.

Congratulations! How do I pick my favorite product from the Holiday catalog...I love it all! If I hand to pick one bundle I couldn't live withoUT it would be Star of Light.
