Father's Day

We are Sailing Home!

After visiting Rome and then enjoying the 2019 Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip Cruise to the Greek Isles, we are sailing back to Rome and will be heading home to Ohio tomorrow. What an adventure this trip was! I'm grateful Andrea and I could spend a couple extra days vacationing as Andrea had never been to Rome. I'm grateful to Stampin' Up! for the many opportunities I am given to work hard at doing what I love, to earn free products, to meet new people and build countless friendships, and to earn such wonderful trips. I am very grateful to my stamping family, customers and team members alike, who encourage and motivate me everyday to keep learning and growing and supporting me on my Stampin' Up! journey and life's ventures. I could not accomplish all of this without you. Special thanks to my daughters Andrea and Emily whose own drive and determination and love of life drive me to be the best me I can be...which includes living in the moment while going after my dreams. 

As Andrea and I sail the big sea and then fly home, I hope you are inspired to create and share with another card I created. The Sailing Home Suite is so very popular. It makes great cards for everyone who loves life on the water and it's great for making masculine cards too. 

The card reminds me of the many sailboats I see on the Hoover Reservoir in the Westerville suburb of Columbus, Ohio, where I live. 

I hope you'll use and enjoy this downloadable PDF to create fun sailing cards!

Relax your way!

So often I hear people say they have a hard time making masculine cards. I received the following card featuring A Good Man Stamp Set from my Stampin' Up! demonstrator friend Jamie Albanese. Isn't it great? Such a simple card to give to that special man who deserves to be celebrated! 

I don't yet own this stamp set, but like it so much I wanted to share Jamie's card with all of you. You can download a free PDF Project Sheet to help you recreate it yourself. I should also point out that the striped paper is from the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper.
