A Fitting Occasion

Hello Stampers!  WOW what a busy weekend I have had!  Friday evening and Saturday was my crop at First Baptist Church.  I am amazed at how much I can get accomplished when I craft away from home!  Do you agree?  Then you should come join us for our next crop!  We hold it once a month on a Friday and Saturday.  Friday is 6 - 11 and Saturday is 9 - 2.  The cost is $5 per day, plus a snack to share with the group.  Everyone gets their own table, and you can even leave your stuff out overnight if you want to.  We even have people who come for just one of the days if you can't do both!

Contact me if you are interested in joining us on June 12th and 13th!

Today I had my monthly team meeting and my daughter's Baccalaureate.  Now I'm tired!

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!

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_1511

IMG_1513

IMG_1514

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!

Swap cards

Hello Stampers!  Man what a busy weekend this has been!  I had another craft fair all weekend at the YMCA.  It was fun because my daughter has started crafting and bringing her items to sell at the craft fair too, so I have some great company for the weekend!  Plus it is great to see the look on her face when she sells items!  Yes, the crafting bug has hit her hard too!

Today I wanted to show you some of the swaps from my recent Spring Into Stamping event that I attended.

IMG_0328 This card is from Naveen Manchanda

IMG_0329 This swap didn't have a name.

IMG_0330 This swap was made by Mary Ellen.

IMG_0331 This pretty swap was made by Cheryl Sorensen.

IMG_0332 Finally, this pretty card was made by Cheryl Camp.

I just love swapping with others!  It is so great to see other's styles and tastes.  What a great way to get ideas!  When you become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, there are lots of opportunities to swap!  Join us today!
