Happy Birthday Carolynn! | Stampin' Up! Display Stamper Blog Hop Day Seven

Happy Sunday!

Welcome back to Day 7, the final day of a week long blog hop bringing together 20 Display Stampers around the world.  A "Display Stamper" is a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator that is sent product from a future catalogue in order to create projects for large display boards to inspire those at a Stampin' Up! event.

Over the course of this week long blog hop, we will each show you projects that we created for those display boards in the respective regions for OnStage events around the globe.  My projects were displayed in the only North American event in Salt Lake City. Keep in mind that these projects showcase products that will not be available until January 3, 2018 in the Stampin' Up! Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogues.

If you'd like to see all of my projects that were on display at the Stampin' Up! OnStage event in Salt Lake City in November 2017 be sure to check out this link.

It's a birthday wand.
Something I make a lot of.
Today is my friend, Carolynn Sander's birthday.
And she's pretty special. I'll tell you why. It's because she has the kind of happy sparkle in her eyes. She loves her friends. And she loves Stampin' Up! She certainly has a way to make people feel special. And well. I like to surround myself with people like that.
So - "Happy Birthday" to Carolynn.
And yes, she's a Display Stamper too so here's my hint to send her some serious love - especially if she's ever made you feel special.
Happy Birthday sweet pea and thanks for the support over the past year! Mwah!

And every birthday wand should come complete with a gorgeous card.

Both of these projects are made of the new paper trim, as well as the foiled Painted with Love Designer Series Paper.

As you can see the products that will be released on January 3rd in the new Salebration and Occasions catalogues are amazing. I can't wait for you to get your hands on these items!

Thanks to everyone who took the time to hop along with us. Your time is pretty valuable so I can't tell you how much it means to me.  In the mean time - I hope you had an amazing weekend especially in the United States for their Thanksgiving weekend.

Keep hopping along to Diane Browning and be sure to check out all 20 of the display stampers!
Are you lost? 
Be sure to follow the hop from start to finish and anywhere in between!

The Stampeders might have lost the Grey Cup on my birthday (I was born on Grey Cup day you know... so they were supposed to win). But this just made my day! Thank you for being so great.💖 I am so so happy to call you my friend. AND.... I REALLY LOVE that WAND!💖 OXO
