Tender Moments

New Year’s Eve 2014 brought with it a complete change for one member of the Stampin’ Up! family. Natalie has been an employee of Stampin’ Up! for over 13 years and currently works with our international markets. She and her husband have four girls.

On New Year’s Eve, they learned that their five-year-old, Hazel, has cancer. The first day of 2015 not only brought a new year, but also the first day of chemotherapy treatment—the first of many treatments and hospital stays to come.

As a Stampin’ Up! family we wanted to try and show our support for this sweet family in some small way. Our concept artists put an album together, documenting Natalie’s family’s journey through this rough time. Natalie has graciously allowed us to share this album with you. Below you’ll see Hazel’s journey. These have been some of her moments over the past six months.
