One of the things I have enjoyed the most about being with Stampin’ Up! over the years has been being apart of the most wonderful group of demonstrators and making friendships I could never imagined. The biggest and best of these friendships is in my very own Craft-T-Crew team of demonstrators. I am so excited when a new team member joins … even if it is just to get discounted Stampin’ Up! products (I mean that is why I started!).
So I can hardly tell you how excited I am that one of my ‘Crew’ has just celebrated five years with Stampin’ Up! as part of the Craft-T-Crew and I simply could not let this milestone pass without a Stampin’ Up! card and gift.
The card was inspired but something I saw on Nikki Spencer’s blog a little while ago and decided it would make the perfect layout for Sam’s achievement card. I decided to use Flirty Flamingo, Tranquil Tide and Sahara Sand as my colour combination and finally used my Daisy Delight Bundle. It is a little hard to see but the front Tranquil Tide panel is raised up on dimensionals so that the “5” is inlaid. I couldn’t seem to find the greeting I wanted to use, congratulations or happy anniversary just didn’t seem right, so I used my Labeler Alphabet to stamp my “wow” and “years” to complete the card.
I have a very special little gift inside of this pizza box that I picked out for Sam to celebrate and symbolise our stamping time together. These pizza boxes are so cute and just a breeze to decorate. I used the exact same layout as my card and using the Labeler Alphabet stamp set meant I could also personalise the gift box and have everything seamlessly coordinated.
I love my Craft-T-Crew gals and have a few more about to hit the big 5 year celebration mark so look out for even more blog post very soon. It is going to be a busy few months but the most fun.
If you are a crafter and have been thinking about joining Stampin’ Up! but just not sure I would be more than happy to have a chat with you and of course love for you to join our wonderful team of stampers.
