Do you love this.. I had this little fabric tote and I added a fabric flower from Cindee to my tote... this was perfect for my cell phone, snail, camera and essentials while staying at the hotel.

How about this for a fun teaser... I'll show you how to make these flowers another time.. Cherry Cobbler Tulle gathered and heated with the Stampin' Up! Heat tool! (these were on Selma's apron)

Sounds and looks like you had a great time; thanks for sharing it with us. Stampin Up is a class act!


Oh what fun...and those thermal totes are really cute! I'll have to use that stamp & framelit to make a tag for the lunch tote I buy my daughter ea. year at Christmas.

Joy Hannabass

You had just too much fun Patti. I've really enjoyed your pictures of the fun things you got to do on your trip...and getting to know how things work at Stampin Up a little better.

Now to see how to make some of the fun things you learned!


Thanks for sharing this trip and other trips. My upline goes on various trips including this one and doesn't share. Always nice to see

Beth B

Great pics! Love the tulle flower!


Hi Patty. It looks like you all had a wonderful time. The Colorado River trip must have been amazing. If I had gotten into card making when I was younger, I would have become a demonstrator. At least I can enjoy it now and share with my friends and neighbors. Keep on enjoying!

Dawn Bullock

I can only dream of achieving this someday. Looks totally amazing and so glad you were rewarded for all your hard work!

Mary Roberson

Thanks for taking and sharing your photos, Patty. It makes me feel like I'm a part of whats going on...It sure looks like you ladies have really felt pampered and have enjoyed your trip. I think its great that Stampin Up! appreciates their employees. I know you have worked hard along the way, to get where you are now, congrats on your success! Its much deserved.
