Pals Swap for Leadership 2014

Hello from Houston!  It has been a while but I am re-energized and you will be hearing from me regularly in the coming days.  I am spending a few days with my friend, Rhonda, before returning to the cold weather in Kansas.

I had a great time at Stampin' Up Leadership 2014.  I am so proud to be associated with Stampin' Up.  They strive to be innovative, are responsive to the needs of their customers, and their products are the best! 

Check out my picture!

Wednesday evening the Pals got together for a Sip and Swap at a venue in downtown Houston.  There was a lot of conversation, delicious food, gifts, and a swap with the Pals.  What could be better?  We were encouraged to use new product from the Occasions Catalog and the Sale-a-bration brochure. Here are pictures of my cards for swap.

The Modern Medley Designer Series Paper is the perfect background for the new products.  I used a card base of Basic Black.  The next layer was the 4" X 5 1/4" piece of Modern Medley.  Very Vanilla was layered over Real Red.  The row of little banners were made with the Banner Blast Stamp set or Banner punch from the Sale-a-brations brochure.  The sentiments from See You Later(Sale-a-brations) or Perfect Pennants(Occasions Catalog were stamped in Staz'On Black Ink..  Accents of Real Red ink, Red Glimmer paper, and Gold Baker's Twine(Occasions Catalog) were added. Do you have a favorite?
