Stampin’ For the Girls

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?

Gift notes Strength and Hope

  • 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
  • Pretty in Pink 1/4 inch grosgrain ribbon
  • 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 coaching at SFTG

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 with Addie and Emily

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.

Sue - aka George - the super-stamper

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 Mascot

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.

Happy Yvette

Yvette won the raffle and I have NEVER seen anyone so thrilled!  Her excitement was contagious and we were all so happy for her.

Maui Stampers

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!
