Every 6 months Stampin' Up! has an On Stage event. These events take the place of the yearly convention that they used to have. The main event rotates among the US, Europe, and the Pacific and they have "local" events in the areas where the main event is not. This year the main event is in Australia (oh, how I wish I could go there!). Last year our local event was in Tampa and this year it is in Atlanta! It's actually just down the road from where I grew up and where one of my sons currently lives. I can go visit grandkids while getting to do some Stampin' Up! stuff! At this event we will get to see the new Occasions catalog that will be coming out in January! YAY! So excited to see new product!
At these events swapping of cards and 3-D projects is the norm. I thought and thought about what I wanted to make. Unless a holiday card is specified, I prefer to make cards that can be used year-round. And this is what I created
You can find all the details and instructions on how to make this card here
This stamp set (Vertical Greetings) really is versatile with various sentiments (Happy Birthday, For You, Congrats, Thank You, I Love You, and Just Because). I often need something that doesn't take up a lot of space on a card and these vertical sentiments easily fit on cards.
I now need to make about 100 of these cards! Although if I get tired and bored doing that many, I'll just create another card so I'll have two (or maybe 3) cards to swap!
