I am so excited to be able to finally share this wonderful new stamp set with you!! Today I am sharing the Ribbon of Courage set that I designed with designer Kathy Pitt when I visited Stampin' Up! in Dec. 2015 for my Million Dollar Achiever trip!! (see more about that trip HERE). If you are a demonstrator, you have access to the catalog already and can find it on page 96 of the upcoming 2017-2018 Annual Catalog with the million dollar achiever symbol, and my name below the set.
This stamp set has a story, and I will be sharing it with you in more detail soon in a video. I was honored to be asked to present the set and my samples at the Stampin' UP! San Diego OnStage event last weekend, but only had 8 minutes to share… and I truly wanted to share so much more with the audience, so I will redo my presentation with all the samples and share the extra backstory and more in my video. Watch for it here soon on my blog!
For all of you expecting that I would have designed a flower set… the explanation of why it's not flowers will also be in my video. This set is dedicated to my mom and grandma who both fought the battle against breast cancer. They are both angels in Heaven now, and I know they are smiling down on me and so happy and amazed at how my business has grown over the nearly 22 years I've been a demonstrator!
I wanted to share a few photos with you from our time at the Stampin' UP! OnStage event in San Diego! I hope you enjoy these!

Below: some of us went to San Diego a few days early to visit, network, and basically solve all the problems of the universe (well, not really, but we tried)… L to R: me, Ruth, Cindee, Stella and Lisa.
Below: THIS was an amazing experience.. at the end of the OnStage event, Stampin' Up! announced they were giving away the Ribbon of Courage stamp set to ALL ATTENDEES!!!!! Oh my gosh.. everyone seemed SO excited! Immediately a long line formed at our table and everyone asked me to sign their set!! Never in a million years did I expect that.. it was thrilling and crazy all at the same time! I was honored, humbled and feel so blessed over the amazing reaction to my Ribbon of Courage set!! So many demonstrators shared their cancer survivor stories with me that day. I know this set will be a huge encouragement to so many people!!
Below: I totally invited myself to be part of Lisa and Rich's photo.. .sorry Lisa! :) (Rich is the president of Stampin' Up!)
Below: I started my trip at the Oakland airport with my new Brighton Poppy rolling bag and new Brighton heart purse.. doesn't it look just like my heart logo!? whohoo! So much fun right from the very first moment of the trip!
And last but not least, I must share this special photo with you… My sister-in-law Tami (on the right) drove down to San Diego from Orange County just to see my presentation! My brother was tied up with a tax appointment.. I missed him, but it was GREAT to have Tami there! This photo of my upline, Sandy, with Tami and I is very special, because it was Tami who attended a Stampin' UP! party hosted by Sandy about 25 years ago, then mailed me the Stampin' Up! catalog and said, "you might be interested in this!" :) OH MY>>> that was the start of a 25 year relationship with Sandy and Stampin' Up! I was a customer for about 3 years before joining as a demonstrator in 1995!! Thank goodness Sandy had her contact info on the back of the catalog!!!
Hope you enjoyed that little (ok long) story with the sneak peek of the Ribbon of Courage set!! I promise to share all the samples and a video very soon!!!
