Star of Light for #tttc024

Today I played along with the Tic Tac Toe Challenge #024.  Make sure to head over and play along!  For this challenge, the board was created by Design Team Member Jeanie Stark.  Take some inspiration from the challenge board below, using three elements in a row of your choice. Whatever row inspires you is what you are challenged to create! 
I chose the three squares diagonal from the left bottom to the right top of the center of the board using Greeting, Elegant and Circle!  I also added a little heat embossing for the greeting as well.
I used the Year of Cheer Design Series Paper along with the Star of Light Bundle for some added elegance. Here are the Stampin' Up! products I used for today's project...

IF YOU MISSED IT . . . the reservation window for the Stamparatus stamp positioning tool was filled (approximately 27000 of them) in about 10 minutes. 
I am so sorry if you missed out.  Be ready!  
The next window to reserve begins Dec. 5.  More details here.

Christmas Quilt for #GDP113

Today I played along with the Global Design Project Challenge #GDP113.  This week is a fabulous color challenge.  Whether your project is Christmas-themed or showcases these colors in some other way, it is so much fun to play along.
I used the Christmas Quilt Bundle for this card.  I love how much fun it is to build you own creation with the beautiful framelits.  I also used the Quilt Top Embossing Folder for added texture.  I found it was pretty easy to make a beautiful card with this bundle and you will too :)  Here are all of the Stampin' UP! products I used on this project:

On Stage Highlights!

I had a fabulous time with friends, fellow demonstrators and Stampin’ Up! staff at the On-Stage event in Salt Lake City this past week.  Highlights included rewards and recognition, new product reveals (including the new Stamparatus) and a chance to pre-order from the Occasions Catalog (as well as earn Sale-A-Bration freebies).  The customer sale period for both begins Jan. 3, 2018.  
Stampin’ Up! did a wonderful job honoring demonstrators with recognition and rewards.  I’m so grateful to my customers, team and stamping friends.  I ended up being #73 overall globally (that’s the whole wide world of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators) and #37 overall in the United States!
I also get to celebrate with three members of my Stampin’ Pretty Pals Community being in the Stampin’ Up! Global Top 100, too!  Congrats to Mary Fish #6Brian King #24 and Susan Itell #100.
