Memories...

Stampin' Up!'s convention this year celebrated 25 years of FUN!  I've been a demonstrator since 1991, so I've been able to celebrate over 23 years with them.  And it's been FUN, FUN, FUN!

In my last post, I shared the beginnings of my SU journey with you - I still have more pix from my This & That "Stampin' Up! Journey" to share with you, but in today's posts I wanted to bring back memories that MANY of you can share with me - some of our STAMPS!

There was a display at convention that showed ALL the covers from our 25 catalogs, along with photos of Shelli & Family, AND, STAMPS!  I did not take the time to photo the covers, since I have most of them - but I WISH I'd photographed the first catalog - it's the only one I don't still have.  I threw it away!  NOOOOOOO --- yes.  Still kicking myself for that one!

So, here are the stamps that they had in the display. What do you think?  How many of these stamps do YOU remember?

Bow Wow - my favorite dog stamp EVER!

BUTTON BEAR!  We had him around for a very long time...


Don't remember the name of the set, but I do remember the gecko!

Another one I don't remember the name of, but I did love this stamp!

Think this one was called Prancer.  He was a very cool stamp to use on Christmas cards, since he was so simple!

We had three different sets in this style, and I still have all three of them! Most of the sets featured women.

Stella Stamper!  Still have her and her accompanying pieces and parts.  I have one DL who asks me EVERY YEAR if I'm going to sell her - NO WAY! She's going with me when I leave this earth! Ha ha.

This one's fairly recent, but I still love it!

This was Dee Greunig in caricature.  She demonstrated at our first conventions.  What a creative soul!  I learned a LOT about stamping from her.


The TRUCK!  I was amazed at how many of my customers purchased this, who I'd have NEVER thought would be interested in it.
Loved this gardening image - you could color or just leave as it is.

Another favorite Christmas image - but it was also good for later in the winter.

The HEDGEHOGS!  Always loved them - they were so cute!  We need them back, don't you think?

Another garden vignette - this one was fun to color!  I think it was one of our first single stamps after we went exclusive.

Our stained glass set.  This was my favorite from the set.  So pretty when stamped on vellum and colored on the reverse side, then added as a window to the card.

Another garden image.  I used this one quite a bit, as well.

So - what did you think of our trip down Memory Lane?  How many of these stamps did YOU have?  Leave me a comment and let me know!

Thanks for stopping by - come back soon!
