Strength and Hope Campaign

 On May 1st, Stampin' UP! started the Strength and Hope Campaign.   Alot of demonstrators are using this campaign to spread awareness about Breast Cancer.  I know in the Savannah area, there have been alot of walks for the Susan B. Komen foundation that honors those women and men who have suffered with this deadly disease.  There have been lots of stories from people exhibiting their strength, hope and courage fighting and for the most part overcoming this disease. 

Stampin' UP! has always taken an interest raising money for various non-profit organizations by giving part of the proceeds of stamp sales to them.  One organization is the Ronald McDonald House which helps house families near the hospitals when their child is being treated for an extended illness or disease. 

Now the company has started a new venture.....Breast Cancer Awareness Foundation.   For every sale of the strength and hope stamp set, SU! will give $2 to the BCAF. 

I will be holding a class on the evening of May 9th to showcase this stamp set.  Those who come that evening will be making 4 cards and 2 3D projects.  I have had the stamp set for over a month, one of the perks of being a demonstrator is that you can receive the products before they are offered to the customer, and I have thoroughly enjoyed playing with it.  I apologize for this horrible picture but this is one of the cards we will be making that evening.  I will be showcasing how to incorporate two colors on one stamp with a technique called....thumping. 

The card on the right is another card we will be making using the quilting technique....great for scrap paper lying around. 
During the workshop I will have door prizes and I will showcase some of the stamps from the summer mini catalog that is now on the catalog on the right to download it and see what's new for the summer. 
If you are in the Savannah area and would like to come to the event, please email me or call me to RSVP.....doors open at 6pm......hope to see you all there!!!!!
