We had a great time raising money for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation! Our efforts resulted in a donation of exactly $354 towards the cause, and every Strength and Hope stamp set sold generated another $2. Raising money and having a good time stamping with friends – what more could you ask?
- Strength and Hope stamp set
- Whisper White, Pirouette Pink, Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose card stock
- Pretty in Pink Patterns Designer Series Paper
- Crumb Cake, Regal Rose, and Chocolate Chip classic ink pads

- Stampin’ Sponge, Pearl Jewels
- Stampin’ Dimensionals, Small open-end envelope
This is a prototype project so it’s a little different than the project we did. I discovered that all of those little pearls on the butterflies on the front of the gift cards made it almost impossible to close the gift envelope, so it was back to the drawing board. Sometimes you have to sacrifice embellishments for function.
Peggy was a teaching wonder, guiding the brand new stampers through all of the stations. She did a great job – no one could tell their projects were first-timer projects!
Kellie – in her fabulous pink-ribbon tee – brought her mom and her daughter along. Her family knows personally the impact of breast cancer, and they were all very generous donors and supporters of our fund-raising effort.
I’ve known Sue since Girl Scout days waaayy back, and she is a regular at my classes. She’s also a wonderful and generous teacher, and offered lots of encouragement to our new stampers.
Our Maui Stampers Mascot…the cutest, happiest boy around. How could he not be? He was surrounded by a house full of loving women all taking turns playing with him and swooping him up and giving him smooches. This one happens to be his mama, Crystal.
Yvette won the raffle and I have NEVER seen anyone so thrilled! Her excitement was contagious and we were all so happy for her.
And here we are, just before we did the raffle drawing. Kellie, Crystal, Robbie, Anne and Peggy – our two Cheryl’s couldn’t be there – and what a hard-working team we were! Thanks to everyone who attended and made this first fundraiser such a success!
