Hello Stampers! Thanks for coming back today to check out my fun projects that I made over the weekend! I got together with a good friend of mine that I actually met through Stampin' Up! She lives a couple of hours away and we used to get to see each other every year at Convention and again at Leadership. Now that Stampin' Up! has changed the way they hold Convention, and the locations, we don't get to see each other very often! So we decided we just needed to make an effort, and this weekend was it! We met in the middle on Sunday. Got a hotel room and stamped and talked for hours! We had so much fun! Here are the projects that we made:
Hello Stampers! Last night was my BINGO class! We really had a great time! I had 14 ladies come! We played six games of BINGO and the prizes were all new products from the upcoming catalog! We also made three cards using more new products! Here are the cards that they made:
This card uses another one of the new in-colors, Tranquil Tide. It also has the new Fresh Florals designer series paper stack for the circles and the greeting is from the new Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set!
This was also my catalog premier night! I decided to serve some snacks, but I wanted them to have a connection with the new In-colors! I had so much fun picking the perfect foods! Here is what I came up with:
Lemon Lime Twist - I had 7-up to drink!
Fresh Fig - Of course I had Fig Newtons!
Powder Pink - Pixie stix with pink powder inside!
Tranquil Tide - I was able to find Salted Carmel truffles with the perfect color of wrapping! Yum!
Berry Burst - I made strawberry cookies! Super easy to make and really yummy! Here is the recipe:
1 box cake mix
1/3 c vegetable oil
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Mix together all ingredients. Roll into golf ball sized balls and place on cookie sheet. Cook for 7 - 9 minutes until edges start to brown!
That's it! And they smell so yummy while they are baking!
Everybody left with the new catalog in their hands and a full tummy! Thanks ladies for such a fun evening!
Hello Stampers! At my team meeting last weekend, our swap theme was masculine cards. I love doing this theme because it seems like I am always in need of masculine cards and I never seem to have enough! Now I've got lots of ideas to make more! Here they are:
This is the card that I made! It is hard to see in this picture, but inside the word Happy has been embossed with the Celebrations Duo Textured Impressions embossing folder. And did you notice that I also used the new Tranquil Tide for my card base! It is a great color!
Thanks for stopping by!
Hello Stampers! Today I wanted to share with you the swaps that I received from my April team meeting. Our theme for the month was anything with a flower!

Hello Stampers! I had such a great time this weekend at my annual Sale-a-bration Celebration! I had about 25 - 30 people come to stamp, socialize, snack, and play games!
These are the cards that they all got to make:
And here are the ladies making their cards and playing games:
It was a fabulous day! Can't wait for the next one!!!
Hello Stampers! I have been super busy this week prepping for my Sale-a-bration Celebration tomorrow! I'm so excited for it! I have almost 30 ladies coming!! I will have pictures later. Today I wanted to share with you what I did yesterday morning. Every month, on the last Thursday of the month, I have a meetup at a local Bread Company for my Paper Pumpkin subscribers to bring their kits and work on them.
Here is what I did yesterday:
This is the April kit, and I think I have to say it is one of my favorites! As I was doing the watercoloring, I wasn't so sure, but when I added it to the black card bases, they really popped! Love them!

Hello Stampers! Have I ever told you how much I love to make cards??? I know it is probably pretty obvious, but I do love it! I take a class once a month where we make papercrafts using our Silhouette machines. Well this month's cards were so cute! Want to see them? Here they are:
They were so much fun! Don't forget about the Stampin' Up! retiring list! Items are selling out on a daily basis, so if there is something you want that is retiring, you better get it before it is gone!

Hello Stampers! It is a sad day here! Not only is Sale-a-bration about to end, but the 2015 - 2017 In-Colors are about to retire! That's right! These colors will be going away for good!
There are only 3 more days of Sale-a-bration! Here are some more samples using some of the FREE products!
Thanks for stopping by, taking a look, and for making me feel better!
Hello Stampers! Today I wanted to showcase a couple of the Sale-a-bration items. The first is the gorgeous Carried Away designer series paper! This is a package of 12 sheets of 12 X 12 designer series paper! It is gorgeous paper and is great for scrapbooking and card making. This was the paper we used at my Carried Away card class last month!
I also received this swap using the designer series paper:
And I used this designer series paper to decorate my free tin!
Unfortunately, if you didn't get this tin already, it is sold out! But if you did, you can decorate it like this!
Thanks for stopping by! Tomorrow I'll be showing my swaps from this month's meeting!
Hello Stampers! This week I want to showcase the Sale-a-bration stamp set Hey, Chick! At first I wasn't too wild about this stamp set, but like usual, once I start seeing all of the super cute samples that people are making, I start liking it more and more! Here are some of the samples:
