'Fall' In Love With Stampin' Up! Open House

Last weekend, I held an Open House in Champaign, Illinois, where we have a huge, wonderful family. I wanted them to see what it is that I actually do, since I talk non-stop about Stampin' Up. It was a lot of hard work, but luckily for me, I had the help of four 'elves'. My brother-in-law, Jimmy, his wife, Beverly, my daughter, Megan, and my husband, Steve. I couldn't have done it without them. They made it fun for me, and I think the family members that dropped by enjoyed themselves too. I heard more than once, "I thought Stampin' Up! was just cards!"
The cards are a very big part, BUT, Stampin' Up! is so much MORE than cards!
We had so much room to move around, visit and talk 'stampin'!

The tables received lots of oohs and aahs, but that paper cake was a big hit!

Halloween and Thanksgiving cuteness.

Simply Adorned jewelry samples.

Loving the Christmas colors.

' Thank You for Coming' goody bags.

They loved the Make-n-Takes and Big Shot demonstration!

Three of my four 'elves'.
Left is my daughter, Megan, (aka Sweet Pea), my brother-in-law, Jimmy, (with that beard, wouldn't he make a great Santa?), and Steve, my husband, (probably checking football scores on his cell phone). Beav, my sister-in-law, is arranging the displays on the tables. She is AWESOME!
Thank you four so very much. I appreciate your help and love you for it.
By the way, what are you doing next spring...I want to do it again!!!!!!!!!!!!! = ^ )


  1. Wow! You're displays are awesome!! You were a very busy girl. Whew, the stuff you had to haul. Yikes!

  2. Pam what an awesome event. You never cease to amaze me. I know it's a lot of work but it's really exciting to see the end result. I hope you have great success in Champaign.

    PS: The Thanksgiving card is absolutely adorable. You can rest assured that I will be stealing this from ya.

  3. Pam, you are the most amazing, energetic woman I know! Just an awesome display of your wonderful creations. Well done!
