September sampler

Hello Stampers!  I can't believe that tomorrow is September already!  Where did the summer go?  Today I want to share with you the September sampler that we put together as a swap at our team meeting.

IMG_1631 The way we have always done this swap, is everybody comes up with a 2" X 2" design and makes enough of them for everyone in the swap to have one.  Then we all come home with several different squares to make our sampler!  These have been really fun to make, and we have been doing this swap for over a year. 

We have decided to stop this swap though and start some other types of swaps, so keep coming back to look for posts showcasing the different swaps my team will be doing!

Button tree

Hello Stampers!  Today I was cleaning off my camera, and I came across the picture of a door prize that one of my team members made for our team meeting a couple of months ago.  I just love it!

IMG_0873 Sorry, but I can't seem to remember which one of my talented team members made it!  To make one of these, it is just our Stampin' Up! buttons hot glued to a styrofoam cone.  I love the three little flags in the top with our tag line!

I'm so thankful I have such a talented team who loves to share their creativity!  Would you like to join us at a meeting sometime?  We have monthly meetings where we share, socialize, eat, and stamp!  Let me know if you are interested in joining us for our next one!  We'ld love to have you there!

Hello Stampers!  I had a special class this last weekend where I showcased new products from the upcoming Holiday catalog!  Want to see the cards we made???

Here they are:


The card in the top left was made using the new For All Things stamp set and the beautiful Color Me Autumn designer series paper.

The card in the top right was made using the new Bright & Beautiful stamp set and the Stars Framelits.  Remember that this is a bundle special now through the end of this month!  You get 15% off as a bundle!

The card in the bottom right was made using the Christmas Bauble stamp.  It makes beautiful cards!  We embossed it in gold!

The card in the bottom left was made using the Seasonally Scattered stamp set.  This has to be one of my favorite stamp sets from this catalog!  Love it!

Hopefully this gets you excited to start making some Christmas cards!  I will be holding several Christmas card classes in the upcoming months!  Be watching for the dates!

Throwback Thursday

Hello Stampers!  I'm going to start a new thing on my blog.  On some Thursdays, I will be showing retired stamp sets that I have for sale, and some card fronts that were made using that stamp set.  If you are intersted in purchasing the stamp set, you will not only receive the stamp set, but also the card fronts that are shown. 

In addition to the stamp set and card fronts, you will also get to pick out an equal amount of product from the current catalogs for FREE!  You will need to pay shipping and tax on this FREE merchandise. 

If you have any questions, please let me know!

If you are local, you can come pick up the stamp set, if you are long distance, I will let you know the price for shipping the items to you. 

Here are this week's stamp sets and card fronts:

IMG_1712  This first stamp set is called Autumn Splendor and is priced at $20.95.  Here are the card fronts that you will receive:

IMG_1711 Remember that these are typically card fronts only and will need to be adhered to a half sheet of cardstock to make them a full card.

Here is the other stamp set:

IMG_1713  This stamp set is called Animal Stories and is priced at $15.95.  Here are the card fronts that you will receive with this stamp set:

IMG_1714 Remember that these are typically card fronts and will need to be adhered to a half sheet of card stock to make a full card.

Keep in mind that I only have one of each of these stamp sets, so when it is gone, it is gone.  It will go to the first interested person!  Simply e-mail me at

I will be adding a tab at the top of this blog to feature the available stamp sets.

Show n' tell and Door prizes

Hello Stampers!  Yesterday was our team meeting so I wanted to share with you some of the show n' tell items that the gals brought to share and the door prize that was given away.

This month we had our extended Quarterly Stamping Day, so that means we meet at someone's house.  This month we were at Karen's place.  I just love these days because it is more laid back than our usual meetings in that we spend more time together talking and sharing.  We all bring appetizers to share for our lunch.

Here are some of the show n' tell items that the gals brought this month:

IMG_1707 I love this baseball card!  It is made using the Circle Card Thinlit.  Love how it is made into a baseball!  Super cute!  I believe Pat made this card.


IMG_1709 This cute card was made using the Endless Wishes stamp set.  This set came out in photopolymer late last year and immediately sold out.  Now it will come back in the Holiday catalog!  I'm so excited!!!

IMG_1710 This is a super cute little basket.  I don't know who made this, but it is super cute!  See the little window in the front that is covered with a window sheet?  So fun!

IMG_1705 Finally, this was the door prize for this month!  Karen made this super cute cork board!  I love the banner across the top with the Little Letters thinlit letters on the tags and all of the flowers on the bottom made using the Flower Shop stamp set and the Pansy punch.

I can't wait to show you the fabulous swaps we received this month too!  Keep watching, I'll post them soon!

Kid's Class

Hello Stampers!  I have been busy today with my scrapbook class and kid's class.  I hold my kid's class once a month at a local church.  I love holding these classes!  The kids are so fun!  Today I had 6 girls in my class!  Here are the projects that we made:

IMG_1038 I just love the colors in this card,
Pool Party and Daffodil Delight!  They got to choose which flower they wanted from the Flower Shop stamp set.  The kid's really like to use washi tape on their cards, and this tape was from the Beach House pack.

IMG_1039 This fun birthday card that they made could be cusotmized!  They got to choose which pattern and which colors from the In Color Paper Stack they wanted to use.  The stamp set that we used was Big News.

IMG_1040 This little dress box was fun too!  The kids got to choose which color they wanted to make their box, whether they wanted the dress sleeveless or short sleeved, and which embossing folder they wanted to decorate their dress.  They could add pearls and rhinestones to their boxes too.  It was really fun to see all of the creations that the girls made!

Swap cards

Hello Stampers!  I spent some time today going through my pictures from Convention!  It is so much fun to go back through all of my pictures and get re-energized and excited all over again!  I just love Convention!

Today I decided to share with you some pictures of some of the swaps that my team received.





Every year at Convention, my team will sit down together on one of the last two evenings, and we will take pictures of each others swaps.  It is just a great way to get even more ideas for projects than with all of our own swap cards. 

We try to be sure that when we are swapping, we spread out so that we don't all end up with the same cards.  This is such a great way to get inspiration!

Because these are cards that others received, I don't have the information about who made these cards.  If you happen to be reading this, and you know who I should give credit to, please let me know! 

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog!  I will be showing some other pictures in the upcoming weeks, so keep watching and prepare to be inspired!

Wedding car gift card holder

Hello Stampers!  Do you remember the wedding I was talking back back in May?  It was a really good friend of mine's daughter.  I wanted to make her some super cute gifts because she is crafty also, and I knew that she would appreciate all of the time and energy put into her gifts!  I have to show you this super cute Wedding gift card holder that I recently made!  It is a convertible wedding car!  Super cute!

IMG_0580 This is a picture of the side of the car.

IMG_0581 This is the front of the car.

IMG_0582 This is the back of the car with the cans hanging off!  If you pull open the trunk holding on to the trailer hitch, it opens up and the gift card fits snuggly inside!  The cans were made using our silver foil paper.  Perfect!

IMG_0583 This is the inside of the car!  Don't you just love it!!! 

I made the car in the wedding colors which were yellow and gray.  I got the tutorial for this from Lorri's site!  I can't wait for another wedding to come up so that I can make another one of these fun projects!  It did take me quite awhile to do, but Lorri's directions were very clear and easy to follow!
