June team meeting show n' tell

Hello Stampers!  As I was posting the pictures from my recent team meeting, I realized that I hadn't ever posted pictures from the June meeting!  So here are some samples of projects that my team has been working on from the June meeting:

IMG_0866 This is one of those fun cards where the middle circles are attached with either bakers twine or dental floss.  You spin the circle around several times before putting it in the envelope.  Then, when the recipient takes it out of the envelope and opens the card, it spins around!  Too fun!

IMG_0867 I love the gold sparkels on this card!

IMG_0869 A great Father's Day card.  Love punch art!

IMG_0870 More masculine punch art!

IMG_0871 Doesn't this card look refreshing!!!

IMG_0872 Beautiful piece of framed art!


IMG_0875 Love the polka dots using the Work of Art stamp set!

IMG_0876 Another Work of Art card!



Thanks for stopping by to look at all of the projects my very talented team has been working on!  Let me know if you have any questions about what it means to be a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator!  My team consists of everyone from hobbyists, who are their own best customer, to those trying to run a business and make an income!

July team meeting show n' tells

Hello Stampers!  Sunday was our July team meeting.  At every meeting, everyone is encouraged to bring with them some projects that they have been working on.  Everyone loves to see what everybody else is up to, and it gives us some great ideas!  Here are some of this month's projects:

  IMG_1510 This is a super cute little washcloth cupcake that Laura made as a wedding shower gift!  Super cute!




IMG_1512 This is a fun card that Lisa made.  She used the Work of Art stamp set.  Have I mentioned before how much I love this stamp set???  I think I'm going to have to CASE this card!

IMG_1516 This is a fun card that Karen made using the Word Bubble Framelits.  I think I'm going to have to CASE this card too! 

Laura brought a scrapbook album that she has been working on using some of the Project Life products!  I thought I had taken a photo of it, but I guess I didn't.  I'm definitely going to have to give this a try!

Everyone who attended Convention brought their swap cards!  We had hundreds of cards there for everybody to look at, take pictures of, and get inspired by!  We hold these meetings in a local restaurant, and some of the employees were coming back to look at some of our samples!  What better way to get the word out about what we do and love!!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Soccer birthday card

Hello Stampers!  I hope that you all had a fabulous 4th of July!  We had several great days to play, eat, and get together with family and friends!

Today  I wanted to show you the birthday card that I made for my daughter's boyfriend.  His birthday is the week before hers, so it was fairly recently.  He loves to watch the World Cup, so I thought a soccer card would be appropriate! 

Here is what I came up with:

IMG_0887-001 Thanks to the Honeycomb embossing folder, this card was pretty easy to make!  I just ran my white cardstock through the Big Shot using the folder, and then repeated with the black cardstock.  Then I used the embossed lines to cut out the black hexagons and simply adhere them to the white cardstock!  That's it!  Super cute! 

I have made these same type of cards before and cut the cardstock into a circle so that it was actually in the shape of a soccer ball too!

So, if you have any soccer lovers on your card list, you have got to try this technique out!  It is super easy and super fun!

Spring 2014-002

Wedding gifts

Hello Stampers!  Remember a few days ago, I was telling you about the wedding that I went to of a friend of mine's daughter?  Well, I want to show you some of the gifts that I made for her!

IMG_0587-002 This is an ornament that I made using their wedding invitation!  I simply cut the invitation into strips, curled them using my bone folder, and then put them into a clear glass ornament.  Then I simply tied a piece of daffodil delight ribbon around the top!  Super cute and what a great keepsake!

IMG_0595-003 This is a frame that I made in My Digital Studio using the Meant To Be downloads.  It was super easy to use and there are several wedding downloads available.  I printed it out in black ink on a Crumb Cake piece of cardstock. 

Thanks for stopping by!

More July swap cards

Hello Stampers!  Are you ready to see some more Patriotic swap cards from my recent swap with my team?  Well, here you go:

IMG_0593-001 This fun card was made by Julie.  I LOVE the way she took the flower image from the Too Kind stamp set, turned it upside down, and stamped it to make fireworks!  Cute idea Julie!

IMG_0594-001 This card was made by Lynn.  Just another great showing of what the Work of Art stamp set can do!  Yes, she colored the stamp every time with a marker, huffed, then stamped, then did it all over again!  Good thing we didn't have a huge number of swappers this month!

IMG_0588-001 This was my swap card.  I used the Petite Pennants Builder punch for the star, and the Large Oval punch for the tail of the star. 

Hope these cards have given you some great ideas when you want to make some Patriotic cards in the future!
