Have a Seat


Hi Stamping Friends.  Today's card is a very simple card that could be used for sending love, thinking of you, Valentine's day.  It's very versatile.  Just switch out the hearts with flowers, and it can even be more versatile.

The cardstock is naturals ivory and riding hood red.  The cool paper is the Sale-A-Bration paper that you can get FREE for placing a $50 order.  The stamp set is Have A Seat. 

The perfect time to hold a class or workshop is during Sale-A-Bration.  Email me or call to schedule yours today.

The winners were placed on clotheslines separated from the others.


And here is the winning card.  This card was on my blog a few weeks ago.  Below are a couple of my other entries.





So did they choose well?  What's your favorite?

Leadership Excitement

Hi Stamping Friends.  I had a wonderful time at Leadership in San Antonio.  Being with all the other demonstrators is so fun and rewarding.

Here are a few highlights ...

I was blessed to share a room with my good friend, Joan.  We were on the 30th floor (top floor).  Here is the view of the Riverwalk (click on the picture for a larger view ... you can see a red boat right in the middle).


Right when we got there, we went right to "work" doing Make and Takes.  Joan was chosen as one of the helpers.  Made some great projects!


I had to take my friend Lilly with.  She's sitting in the new bag we got, and is surrounded by some of the free goodies we got on prize patrol.


One night we dined at a restaurant right along the river.  The weather was perfect ... especially coming from below zero temperatures.


While we were eating, there were a few ducks that joined us.  We thought we would feed them bits of tortilla chips ... BIG mistake!  They wouldn't leave us alone, and one came up to me from behind and nipped me in my butt!  Didn't hurt me, but it was pretty funny.  To get rid of them so we could eat in peace we had to take drops of water from our straws and squirt them.  They really hated the water ... go figure.


We enjoyed the beautiful flowers along the sidewalk.  Don't have a clue what kind of flower this is, but it sure was pretty.


The theme of the conference was "My Way".  Here is Joan with Myrtle (her friend) and Lilly and me.

 
I hope you enjoyed my very brief diary of my trip.  I'm excited to share some of the new products coming up in the very near future.  I'll do that when we're "allowed" to share.

Want to join in the fun as a demonstrator?  Come back on Tuesday for the beginning of Sale-A-Bration and find out how you can do so with great incentives!

Hi everyone.  Gee, time sure seems to be flying by ... and I'm actually thinking ahead!  Here is a Valentine's card that features some of the new items in the Occasions Mini.  The card is black and blushing bride.  The top of the blushing bride piece was embossed using the Adorning Accents Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  If you look closely, you'll be able to see that they are actually little hearts.  The designer paper print in the middle is from one of the sheets of the Twitterpated Designer paper.  The stamp set is Take is to Heart, stamped and embossed with black embossing powder.  Then I ran it through the Hearts Collection framelits.  It was so easy to line up!  The black heart was also cut with the framelit.  The small hearts are punched using the small heart punch, and the ribbon is the polka dot 5/8" ribbon.

New Mini Catalog


It's here!  The new 2012 Occasions Catalog is packed with lots of really cool stuff.  One of my favorite new items are the framelits.


I just started playing with my new toys, and here is one of my very simple creations.  The background is soft suede, and the riding hood red layer is a remnant of the labels collection framelit frame punched in the card in the previous post.  Rather than discard the frame, I embossed it using the square lattice folder and popped it up using stampin' dimensionals over natural ivory that was stamped using the Rue Des Fleurs stamp set.  The riding hood red pleated ribbon adds a nice accent to the bottom of the card, with a final touch of a flower punched out of newsprint designer paper using the boho blossom punch, topped with a hemp twine bow and jumbo pearl.  (All the red items are from the new catalog).

If you would like a catalog please feel free to email me with your name and address.  To place an order, click here.

Mojo Monday

Happy New Year!  It's been a really long time since I've done any sketches.  So today I thought I would jump start my mojo by using the Mojo Monday sketch.  Love the way it turned out.  I just realized I can't tell you a whole lot of details for another 2 days, but I can tell you that the colors are soft suede, crumb cake, pink pirouette, and very vanilla.  The stamp set and pleated ribbon are new, but the others are not. 

Don't forget, only two more days to until the Holiday Mini will no longer be available. Also the wonderful clearance deals will end as well.  Click here to place an order or email me with your order, and I'll take care of it for you.
