In my January 19th post,"Stampin' Up! Celebrates 25 Years…A Walk Back In Time!",  I referenced Stampin' Up! celebrating 25 years as a "creative" Company…

My way of congratulating Stampin' Up! and celebrating with them is to go back through my "special" cards and share them here, along with my personal stampin' walk back in time.

Each card has a story, and only the creator and the recipient will recall it. 

When you give a handmade and hand written card, the recipient will remember where they were, and who they were with when they opened it; and that card would never get thrown away…it would get tucked away with all their "special" memories. The creator has their own special story to tell about making the card. I truly believe this.

Okay, enough rambling again…here's Part 2 of my "Walk Back in Time". A look back into the 2001-2002 Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalog. I hope you enjoy…

The card below was made with a stamp set called "Watercolor Garden" I loved this set…I think I used this set with every Stampin' Up! color combination imaginable. We didn't have a Color Coach then…just a color wheel.



The card below was made with a stamp set called "Terrific Tulips". Tulips are my favorite flower. I was married in April and tulips were my wedding flower…so simple and clean.


Here's two stamp sets together, "Bunch of Bugs" and "Sun Ripened" I was at a Stamp Club at my then Demonstrator's home when I made this card. She had just gotten the set and we all got play! I always liked that dragonfly. By the way, this is Not Quite Navy card stock and ink.


The next two are from a Hostess Set called Tags & More. I got this free for hosting a Workshop. I still have the set and I use it often. Here's some organdy ribbon and a stamped envelope. 


My Mom stamped this card. She was such a beautiful woman, and she loved to stamp with me. I have a few cards she made when we stamped together. I will cherish them always.


The last one is called "Simply Seasonal". I remember doing a lot of paper tearing then. I made this at another workshop I attended. It was the make & take. 


I hope you enjoyed Part Two of "My Walk Back In Time". In a few weeks, I'll showcase some more.

Until then,
