Goodie bag and Service project card

Hello Stampers!  Just a couple more pictures from my weekend event that I attended last weekend!

IMG_7778 This is the Baker's Twine Trio Pack form the Holiday catalog.  Isn't it amazing what some cute packaging can do to a gift?

Vintage Leaves We also had a service project where we made a card to send to the troops for them to then use and send back home.  We used the Vintage Leaves stamp set from the Annual Catalog.  Love this stamp set!  Thanks for stopping by!

Make n' takes

Hello Stampers!  Alright!  It is time to get serious with this blog thing again!  I have been jumping around and only posting sporadically, so now things need to change!  However, I need your help!  I'm going to do my best to post on weekdays, but if I miss a day or two, you need to nudge me and remind me that I'm not being consistent!  Can you do that for me?  Great!  

I hope that you all have seen by now that I did meet my goal for this Stampin' Up! year!  Thanks to all of my loyal customers and team members, I earned the Thailand trip!  I'm so excited and it is going to be a really long 10 months waiting for our adventure!  My husband does not want to go with me, you know 6' 5" and an airplane for 20 hours is not a great combination!!!  So I am taking my youngest daughter Amie with me!  She is super excited!  Thank you to everyone who helped me make my goal possible!

Over the weekend I attended a fun stamping event put on by another demonstrator in my area.  We had demonstrations, make n' takes, and of course swapping!  I will share it all with you over the next few days!  Today I will show you the make n' takes that we made!  Super cute projects!


IMG_7823 This is a super cute candy holder.  So easy to make too!  I will be working on a video on making these!  Be watching!!!

IMG_7824  Isn't this a pretty card?  The Petals & Paisley suite in the Holiday is great!  Makes great fall or any occasion cards!  

IMG_7825 I just love this Detailed Santa thinlit!  So easy to use and a real WOW!  We will be making a card very simiar to this in my next Christmas card class on Thursday, October 6, at both 10:00 a.m. and 6:30 p.m.!

IMG_7826 This card uses the Frosted Medallions stamp set from the Holiday catalog.  We embossed the snowflake with white embossing powder.  Make it pop!

Thanks for stopping by!  I will be sending out my newsletter later this week with the information for my upcoming Christmas card classes.  Just e-mail me at if you would like to get on my subscriber list!

September technique class

Hello Stampers!  I wanted to share with you the cards that we will be making at this month's technique class.


Can you see the balloons on the birthday card?  They are puffed out and rounded like a real balloon!   The center of the pink card has been cut out and filled in with washi tape!  They are both really cool techniques that we will be learning!  Here is the details:

Thursday, September 15th   6:30 p.m.  First Baptist Church - Arnold

Please RSVP so that I will have enough supplies!
