1/16 Best Of 25 Years of Stamp Sets and updates from Leadership

Good Morning Friends!

I have so much information from leadership to share with you.  This is one that really caught my eye.  Check back here daily, I'm going to be sharing LOTS of information with you!  Stampin' Up is really rolling out the red carpet for their 25th Anniversary and they did just that for managers and above at the Harry Potter Attraction in Orlando! 

Here's a picture of my friend Marilyn (in the back), my brother Paul (front left) and his sweet girlfriend Michele (front right) sampling some of the British Cuisine at the event. 
My nickel's worth of free advice if you're planning on riding the rides in this park?  Eat after you go on the rides.  Many demonstrators had a little trouble after riding and wish they hadn't eaten first!  just sayin'  We all did fine.  :)

So, getting back to the "Best Of" Stamp sets!    Here are the details from the home office:

As part of our 25-year anniversary celebration, we're bringing back some of our favorite stamp images from the last quarter century and combining them into 12 sets, which will release-one set per month-during 2013. Even better, along with some great classic images, each "Best of" set will also include a never-before-seen image!
  • All Best of stamp sets will include 3-5 images, including a never-before seen image, and will be priced at $14.95.
  • While we are releasing just one Best of stamp set per month (with a new theme each month), all of the Best of sets will be available until March 31, 2014.
  • A new flyer will be released every month for each new Best of set.
  • All Best of stamp sets are available in Clear-Mount only.
While we are releasing just one Best of stamp set per month, all of the Best of sets will be available until March 31, 2014. 

As a special incentive to collect the Best of stamps, starting in February we're including a collector's card and 25-year proof of purchase sticker with every Best of set. Collect six stickers, and send it in to redeem a FREE set of your choice valued up to $14.95! Free sets must be redeemed no later than April 30, 2014.

So ~  Here is January's stamp set, Best of Birthdays!
Oh my gosh, isn't it cute??  You can get the full information, by looking at this flier.  Then, don't forget to download your collectors card.  Purchase 6 of these beauties, and get a stamp set of your choice free (retail value $14.95 or less). 

I am putting in an order for mine today.  Let me know if there's something you need or would like one too! 

Here's a few projects made with the "happy birthday to you" never seen before stamp!  These photos were taken at leadership and are the work of the very talented Pam Morgan of the home office. 

Finally, it always takes my breath away when I am at a Stampin' Up! Event.  After coming into the the main room (where they had product displays and where we eat lunch) the first day was completely underway.  There was swapping and and product demonstrations.  The buzz is unbelievably cool. 

Here is a photo I snapped to remember "that" moment when I first walked into the main gathering area. 
I take this photo every event, because I want to hold onto that feeling, the excitement of walking through the door of an event like this.  It is like nothing on earth!  :)

Until tomorrow, big stampin hugs! 
I need to go do some work!  Scrappin' here on Friday!
