Stampin' Up! is 30 - #GDP163

 


This week, Stampin' Up! demonstrators from all over the globe are heading to Orlando for the Stampin' Up!'s 30th anniversary conference. If you have been a Stampin' Dolce follower for a while, you will know that I am always the first to attend these amazing events.

Sadly, this year, I will be staying home. I am already seeing social media posts from my demonstrator friends that they have arrived early and are taking in the theme parks. There is a huge level of FOMO happening (fear of missing out), but it just wasn't in the plans this year.

After heading back to work a year and a half ago, I need to be careful with my vacation days as I only get two weeks a year. I am a believer in work/ life/ family balance and I want to save those vacation days for when I can take a trip with my family. So, I will be sitting this one out and watching over the internet this week! (There may be chocolate involved while I watch and eat my feelings).

To celebrate this milestone at Stampin' Up!, my designer friends and I at the Global Design Project are sharing projects with the 30 anniversary theme!

Christmas-y Challenge - Fancy Friday blog hop


Hello everyone! We are running a week late with the October edition of the Fancy Friday blog hop, but we are still here! And this week, we are sharing Christmas-y projects!

For this challenge I was inspired to create a few Christmas ornaments. Take a peek!


The new Dashing Deer Bundle was perfect for this Popsicle sled ornament that I created.


The garland here was created with the Sprig Punch (holiday catalogue) and Pretty Pines Thinlits (annual catalogue).


I can not take credit for this adorable tree. Shelli Gardner, the co-founder of Stampin' Up!, created and shared this on the Alaskan Cruise this past summer. I loved it so much I just had to CASE it and create my own.

I am excited to announce that you can create these adorable ornaments at my upcoming Stampin' Dolce day long stamping event on November 17, 2018!






Continue hopping with the Fancy Friday design team! Up next is the talented 
 have had a sneak peek of her project and it is fantastic!


Thank-you for following the Fancy Friday Blog Hop! We are back on November 29th for our next showcase! Be sure to come back and visit!

Have a creative day!
