Gifts from Creative Kids!

Hello Stampers!  Well, Saturday I shared with you the projects that we made at the September kid's class, so today I thought I would share with you a couple of gifts that I received from my kids!

IMG_1719 I received this beautiful handmade card from Emily, and a candy bar from Abi & Emma!  They are all so sweet! 

IMG_1720 And this is what was inside of my card from Emily!  Can you tell that the kid's all know that Miss Dina LOVES chocolate???

And notice what color my card from Emily is...PURPLE!

Be sure to check out my Inkin With Dink Facebook page this week!  I'm going to be featuring the Curvy Keepsake Thinlit Die!  I have been making all sorts of super cute boxes with this die, and I just wanted to share them with you!

Also, don't forget that today is the last day to take advantage of this week's Weekly Deals!

September Kid's class

Hello Stampers!  I've still been super busy making items for my upcoming craft fairs, so I thought this would be the perfect time to show older projects that I haven't shown yet!

Every month I hold a Kid's card class for kid's ages 8 years old and older.  We always make two cards and one 3D item.  I have so much fun with the kids!  Here are the projects that we made in September:

IMG_1716 I am so in love with the Kind Koala stamp!  Plus it is a single stamp, so it is so reasonable!  It does only come in wood mount.

IMG_1717 The polka dots are from the Work of Art stamp set!  Don't you love the use of the Decorative Dots embossing folder on the Daffodil Delight and Blackberry Bliss strips?

IMG_1718 This is actually a roll of Rolos!  We scored the Daffodil Delight cardstock every 1/4" so that it had the ridges like a pencil.  This was super simple for the kids to do using the Simply Score tool!  The Hershey kiss is stuck on the end with a glue dot!  We wrapped a strip of Blushing Bride around the top to look like the eraser.  The kid's loved these!

My October kid's class will be on Thursday, October 9th!  Let me know if you have someone who would love to attend, or if you would be interested in purchasing  a kit for them to complete at home in their own time!

Hello Stampers!  My team recently held a swap and the theme was Halloween or Fall cards.  Want to see what we made?

IMG_1806 Pat V. made this card.  The inside pulls out for the card!  Love it!

IMG_1807 Karen made this card!  Love that she used the Project Life Holiday Cheer stamp set for her card!  It shows the versatility of this fun set!

IMG_1808 Laura made this great card!  We can always count on Laura to use washi tape on her cards!  She also used the Project Life Holiday Cheer stamp set.

IMG_1809 Not sure who made this card, but I love the fall colors!

IMG_1810 Lisa's card is an invitation for a Halloween party!  Don't you love the rhinestones in the eyes!

IMG_1811 Don't know who made this card.  I love the use of the Holiday Home stamp set as haunted hauses!

IMG_1805 This is the card that I made.  I used the Seasonally Scattered stamp set with the Baby Wipe technique.  I took a baby wipe and put on drops of inker to make my own stamp pad.  If you would like a video on this technique, just let me know and I'll see what I can do!

Thanks for stopping by to look at my swaps!  I love swapping with my team!

Hello Stampers!  Just cleaning off my memory card in my camera today, and realized I hadn't shown you the make n' takes that we made at Convention this year!

IMG_1654 Love this journal using our Kraft Grid Journals

IMG_1655 This is a fun pouch that holds note cards!  The pouch is made out of the Gift Card Enclosures!

IMG_1656 These are the cards that were inside!

IMG_1657 This is our final project.  It is a page from the Seasonal Snapshot Project Life Card Collection

IMG_1658 This is the back side of the page.

If these projects excited you a little bit, you have got to join us and go to Convention next year!  You have several months to start saving your money, or better year, earn it through your Stampin' Up! business!  Contact me today and I'll tell you how!!!  We'd love to have you join us next year!

Stampin' Up! Unite & Excite

Hello Stampers!  Over the weekend I was lucky enough to get to attend a Stampin' Up! event!  They hosted several of these events all over the US that they called Unite & Excite.  A demonstrator was picked in several different areas and was in charge of the event.

It was a fun afternoon filled with stamping, swapping, socializing, and eating! 

Want to see some pictures?  Here is the make n' take that we did that day:

IMG_1881 We used the great Seasonally Scattered stamp set.

Here is the swap that I made and brought:

IMG_1882 I used the Festival of Trees stamp set with the coordinating Tree Punch.  The best thing is you can get these two products as a bundle and save 15%!  I used the Lucky Stars Embossing Folder for the stars on the background.

Here are a few more swaps that I received:

IMG_1883 Made by Denise Wisdom.

IMG_1884 Made by Joan Eckert

IMG_1885 

IMG_1886 Made by Pat Baum (love the little kleenex box!)

IMG_1887 Made by Rebecca Schuder

That's it for today!  Wouldn't you love to attend the next Stampin' Up! event with me?  We have such a good time just getting together to stamp and socialize!  Contact me and I can give you some information on how to join my team!

Baseball thank you card

Hello Stampers!  I recently needed a thank you card for some friends who gave us some St. Louis Cardinal baseball tickets.  Of course, the tickets were for a day when I ended up being sick and couldn't even go, but my hubby and kids went and really enjoyed them! 

Here is the card I came up with:

IMG_1829 I thought it turned out pretty cute!  It was made using the Circle Card thinlit and the Big Shot Die-Cut Machine and the Chevron  Border punch.  Don't you love the way the work thx comes with the circle card thinlit set!!!

Wouldn't this card also make a super cute birthday card for a boy?  Or even a fabulous birth announcement for a bouncing baby boy???

Head over to my Inkin With Dink online store and place your order today so you can start making your own super cute baseball cards soon too!
