Heeeere's Stacy!

Happy Monday Everyone!

Valentine's Day was my Wedding Anniversary and we went to Las Vegas. Enough about that as "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas!" :) Hope you had a great Valentine's too!

I am very happy to introduce you to "Stacy Palmer" Here is a pic of Stacy and her husband, Brian.

Stacy was my very first Stampin' Sister on UDI. This is an awesome program where we get paired up for 3 months and send packages and use the time to get to know each other. I was lucky to know Stacy on another stampin' group we belonged to, but this gave us the opportunity to become really good friends. It was a pleasure to share a room with Stacy at the Marriott for the SLC Regionals in 2007.

Stacy is one of the most creative stampers I know and has to be the most organized! Here is what Stacy wrote:

I have been married to Brian for 12 years and have 4 daughters ... 2 step-daughters from a previous marriage that I still keep in contact with (Erin, 32 and Trisha, 29) and 2 daughters (Hailey, 8-3/4 - her birthday is next month, so that 3/4 is VERY important to her - and McKenna, 6). We live in Boise, ID. We have lived here for 1-1/2 years. We moved from Huntington Beach, CA. I have been a SU Demonstrator for 5 years (YEA, I get to walk the stage at convention this year!) and am creating my business all over again when I moved to Boise. Business is slowly picking up and I keep plugging away at it. I also own Great Occasions Event Services, which was developed 24 years ago. I coordinate weddings, birthday parties, fund raisers and anything else that needs to be coordinated. I am also a stay-at-home mom that keeps me busy with volunteer work at my daughters school.

Here are the supplies and directions for Stacy's cute cute project:

Adhere each end of Bashful Blue card stock to one piece of Pomegranate card stock to create card. Vertical slots should be on back side of card. Ensure that ribbon can still slide easily through vertical slots. Be careful not to pull ribbon all the way through.
Attach Bashful Blue polka dot heart to ribbon. Pop up Groovy Guava flower to heart. Attach Love Old Olive heart below ribbon onto card.
Flatten folds and tie ribbon to close card.

Cute card! I'm sure the recipient would love having those hearts pop up when they open the card :) I also like how thorough you are with the instructions and materials used, Stacy. You make it much easier to duplicate your project, thanks!

Gorgeous project and love the colour combo of that blue with the earthier tones - really set each other off. Great work
