More Downline Meeting Samples

Here are the remaining samples of our projects from Susan's downline meeting. 

Oh, I forgot to mention, I won the prize...yes in addition to the great stamping projects, yummy snacks, CHOCOLATE there was a prize...and I WON!  Yes, I know, I win things all the time....I'm so lucky!  It was a cute little candy dish that had the same design as our designer paper!  How cool is that?!  So when Stampin' Up says they are up on all the new trends out there...they are!  So cute. 

Have a great day...hope you get to stamp today.

Happy Easter Basket

Happy Easter!  Aren't these cute little baskets?  I found these on Barb M. website...too cute for words!

Downline Meeting

Aren't these cute?  My upline, Susan had a meeting last week.  These are a few of the stamping projects Susan had for us to stamp. 

I'm thinking one of these might just be a stamp club project this month.  Can you guess which one?

Susan also gave us 1/2 package of the new Scrappin' Kit from the Summer Mini and challenged us to all to create.  Hummmm, haven't started that yet. 

More samples from the meeting tomorrow.

Happy Easter Everyone!

Stampin' Up Meeting Tonight

My upline is having a business meeting this evening.  Can't wait to attend.  Even though I normally qualify to attend her meetings, most of the time I am unable to attend.  This will be the first this year.  I think last year, I was only able to attend one.  Can't wait! 

Hope to have samples to share.  I already have my camera ready to go!

Have a wonderful day! 

PS Don't forget your tax returns are due today if in the US.  I'm so happy, mine was filed last week and no extension for me this year!  Yipee!

PSS This week ends the Occassions Mini so if there are items you want, now is the time to order.  Visit our 24/7 store today

Take a close look at the puppy's face...Carrie is so cleaver.  Do you see the heart punch?  Ears are the one inch cirle punch, cut in half.  This is 'dog gone' cute!

Convention 2011!

What is Convention?

Where can you experience good times with stamping friends and also get creative new ideas for workshops and projects? At our annual convention!

Each year, Stampin' Up! demonstrators from across the US and Canada gather for three days of education, celebration, and motivation. Convention always includes time to swap cards, attend business classes and new-product demonstrations, participate in Make & Takes, and enjoy time with the best stampers in the world!

Convention dates: July 13-16, 2011

We were able to register for Convention last week.  I'm starting to get excited!  Oh my, swaps!  I need to think about preparing swaps... so much fun, so little time!!!! 

Want to go too?  Contact me to see how!

No stamping Card?

This is a cute little card.  I cannot remember where I found it but it seems like you could re-create this without using any stamps.  What do you think?

Simply Adorned 2

 As promised, here are two other inserts I created for the Simply Adorn line.  This is the smaller option, a square.  I used the Cute by the inch, Level 2 hostess (CASED from Brenda Hugar.) to make these little works of art to wear.

So much little time!

Simply Adorn

When this line came out, I wasn't as keen on it as some were.  However, at this year's Leadership Conference in Nashville TN, Stampin' Up gave us a longer version of this chain and a few of the bobbles. (I already had this chain and it fits me better.)  

As part of our special Make-n-takes, we created this insert.  The other side has another initital.  So easy to make and it was really fun. Surprised me how much I like it! 

Now I tend to wear as often as I can.  Tomorrow, I'll show you a couple of the other inserts I made for the smaller insert. 

Hope you enjoy!
