No more Olympics, boo hoo

My family and I have really enjoyed having the Olympics on the last couple of weeks. We have enjoyed seeing the athletic ability of all the athletes that work so hard for what they do. I really admire there dedication and sacrifice. So to commemorate all there achievement this is a card my 10 year old made using scraps she got out of my garbage.

Who says you need a half piece of cardstock to make a card. All you need is enough scraps and scotch tape. Nice card Courtney!

My card won our group meeting swap!

We had our group meeting for Stampin' Up! demonstrators under Margo Kelly. She does a great meeting and is a great upline. Anyways we almost always do a card swap and vote for the card we like the best. My card was the winner! I was so suprised and so excited! The card I used was the cupcake card from the previous post. I won the word happiness in our new line called Decor Elements that Stampin' Up! sells now. It's a line of vinyl for walls, and a bunch of other things. When I put it up I'll post a picture here.

Stamp-a-stack registration date extended

I'm having a Stamp-a-stack on August 27 from 6:30-8:30. We will be making a total of 12 cards, 3 cards each of 4 different designs. This is a great way to start your card collection or add to it. I've extended the registration deadline to August 19. The cost is $15.00. If you can't make it and you would like the cards I can ship them to you for an additional $4.00. I will stamp the cards and make one of each of the designs so that you can assemble the other one's.

Here is a sample of one of the cards we will be making. It uses the brand new set Crazy for Cupcakes. (Sorry about the bad picture, I just couldn't get a good one.) I received this stamp set for FREE from convention a couple of weeks ago for having the winning wrist band. I was so excited because I just love this stamp set. I got the card layout from a swap I received from convention. I change the colors and the stamp set, but it really is as easy as that. Find a layout you like and change a few things and now it's your cards.

Card we will be making at my Stamp-a-stack

Card I got the idea from.

Just email me if you would like to attend, or if you can't come and you still want to have the cards I can mail them to you for an additional $4.00. I will stamp them and you can assemble them. If you have any questions just let me know.

Happy Stamping,

Stampin' Up! NEW Idea book & Catalog now available

Wow is the only word to describe the new Stampin' Up! idea book and catalog! There are so many great stamp sets and new ribbon that is so yummy, along with new "In Colors" that are to die for. I have catalogs available just let me know if you want one and I'll get one to you. The cost is only $5.00. I've included a picture of the cover of it. I just love the new scalloped edge!

I'm in a card swap with some fellow demonstrators so I've been working on one of my 2 cards I have to do. I made it using the new Bella Rose Designer Series Paper along with 3 new colors Pink Piroutte, Riding Hood Red and Kiwi Kiss all from the "In Colors" and a new stamp set called Eastern Blooms. The card is a pocket card so the message is written on the Whisper White CS that has the flower part on it. If you would like to know how to make this card just let me know!

Now blogging

I keep seeing all these blogs that are so inspiring to me so I decided to start blogging myself. On my blog I'll have samples using Stampin' Up! products. I love Stampin' Up! and I just came back from the yearly convention in Salt Lake City, Utah. What a great time we had with our group of local demonstrators and also talking to new demonstrators. I learned sooooo much there and I hope to share some new things with you in the near future. For now here are some cards that I made to bring to convention to swap. Enjoy and have a great day!!!
