Roomie Gifts

Hello Stamper!  It is a tradition that when you attend a Stampin' Up! event, you make gifts for your roomies!  In our case, my team all made gifts for each other!  It is such a fun thing to do and you get some really cute gift ideas!

IMG_8173-001 This is a cute little carrier that Linda made us.  Look what is inside:

IMG_8174-001 Super cute huh???

IMG_8175-001 Karen made us these fun things!  The Just a Note is a covering for post it notes so we could mark up our new catalogs!  These were both inside a bag of candy!

IMG_8176-001 Julie covered these fun nuggets for us!  Gotta love all of the chocolate!

IMG_8177-001 Kathy made these darling calendars for us.

IMG_8178-001 Lisa made these great pouches for us.  There were tea bags inside and the test tube, from the October Paper Pumpkin kit, is filled with granulated honey!  Yum!

IMG_8179-001 These adorable coffee cups were made by Pat!  I love it!  And it is filled with chocolate too!  

I made tags for our bags.  You can see mine in this picture with my special bag from Center Stage!  


When we are a room full of women, all with the exact same bag, it is nice to have tags so you can tell your bag apart from others!  I used the Layering Oval Framelits for the base, the initials were cut using the Large Letters Framelits, and I spelled out each persons name and stamped with the Labeler Alphabet set!  

Thanks for stopping by!

Elephant birthday card

Hello Stampers!  This past weekend my baby turned 20 yeard old!  So hard to believe but I am so proud of her and all that she has accomplished so far!  Can't wait to see what her future holds for her!  

She absolutely loves elephants, so of course I made her an elephant card!


I found this cute card in the Silhouette store.  It was so easy to download, cut, and put together!  Amie even said "I can't believe you still have ideas for elephant cards!"  Little does she know, there are lots of elephants in the Silhouette store!

The designer series paper I put on the front of the card is from the A Little Foxy designer series paper stack!  So cute!  

Thanks for stopping by!  Today I'm going to play with my new Stitched Shapes Framelits!

Paper Pumpkin banner

Hello Stampers!  After the fabulous OnStage event over the weekend, I spend a couple of days with my mom.  I love it when we get together and craft!  This time I brought along my October paper pumpkin kit with the idea that we would make banners!  I saw this banner on a blog hop and knew I had to make a similar one for myself!  Here is a picture of my completed banner:
