At the Stampin’ Up! annual convention every year, demonstrators are invited to a place called “Memento Mall”. The Home Office comes up with all sorts of merchandise unavailable in the catalog (or for that matter anyplace else) to entice us to spend our stamp money. You would think we would hold onto that stamp money pretty carefully, but then maybe you haven’t seen Memento Mall:
This photo is blurry because no one stands still in Memento Mall. Demonstrators rush in and pounce on every display, grabbing merchandise and trying to figure out how much it costs and whether or not there is a purchase limit. It’s a stampers’ feeding frenzy!
One of my favorite Memento Mall purchases is this stamp:
I’m not going to give you a recipe, because the stamp was only available at the Stampin’ Up! Convention and some of the papers are retired. These are little Post-It note holders (courtesy of the amazing Becky Roberts – I could CASE her all day) and they are gifts for workshop guests who bring a friend.
The heart of stamping – and Stampin’ Up! – is sharing and I hope you enjoy what I share with you.
