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!

Oh my sweet Lisa, you have made this quite difficult. There so many that I am crazy about. I can narrow it down to two Basket of Wishes can be used all year as for the seasonal sets I suppose it would have to be Jar of Cheer!

Love the cookie cutters .. Christmas and Halloween. Congrats on 18 years

Jody Stewart

Congratulations on 18 yrs as a demonstrator! My favorite is the Christmas Cookie Cutter bundle because it is so versatile. I like using punches more than framelets because they are quicker😄

Mary in Iowa

Wow, 18 years. What a milestone. My favorite Holiday Catalog item is the Star of Light bundle. It suits my Christmas card making style. I love the different ways the stars can fit together.


Congrats, Lisa! 18 years is a great achievement! Tomorrow my #3 kiddo will be 18. 😀
I think the star light bundle would be my favorite

Congratulations again! Love checking out all your crafts!

Lisa, congratulations on 18 years with Stampin' Up!! I am brand new to stamping so I love reading your blogs and watching your videos...unfortunately, NJ is not big on stamping, so there is no one local to me.... anyway, I LOVE baking, so my favorite piece is the Candy cane Christmas stamps.... I can use them to personalize the goodies I give as gifts.

Kathy VanAntwerp

Lisa, my favorite is the Cookie Cutter Christmas. It is so cute and perfect for kids to stamp and create with!

Hi, Lisa! Congratulations on 18 years with Stampin' Up! I've actually been a long-time subscriber of yours on YouTube, and you've given me some awesome tips and incredible project ideas, so thank you so much for that! I've got a few favorites in the Holiday catalog (it's so hard to narrow down, am I right?). First, I know it's a popular choice, but that cookie cutter set with the matching punch is awesome, especially because of all the awesome tutorials and images online that utilize that set. My other favorite, which I would love to see more of, is the Merry Mice stamp set! Congrats again, Lisa, you deserve it!
