Little Somethings of Convention

This was my first year going to Convention with my team. I have an awesome bunch of gals under me & we have a great time when we are together. We did a special 12x12 scrapbook page this year for a make & take. We have had a lot of fun this year. Below are the little somethings that I made for my 3 gals that got to go with me this year. I covered the composition books with Darling Doodles Designer papers & put the Personal Earnings & Title charts on the back flap of the book so my girls can have it at their finger tips.

5 years of Stampin'.....

For all the many things I have been involved in (besides being a wife & a mom), Stampin'Up! has been the longest running. I was able to walk across the stage today at Convention to celebrate 5 years with this fabulous company.

Punchy Punches

These are the samples of what we made at my Punchy Punches Class last night. I wanted to find a way to use some our new punches. I was also able to work in new IN Colors & rhinestone brads. It was alot of fun!

I found this layout on Stampin' Up! stampers showcase. I tweaked the colors & the layout a bit & really like it. I use Purely Pomegranite, Wild Wasabi, & Groovy Guava CS along with good ol' Chocolate Chip CS & ink. The squares are 3/4 in sqaure punched from Linen Prints patterned papers. I also used the sprial punch to make the notebook paper look.

This is a 12x12 scrapbook page using Baroque Motifs, the new scallop punch & rhinestone brads. I used Bashful Blue CS to back the cirlce punches. I gave everyone the option of using Real Red, Tempting Turqoise, Pretty in Pink or Bashful Blue. I love the way it turned out.

This card uses the Linen Prints designer papers along with the small & large oval punches & chocolate taffeta ribbon. I attached the ribbon by cutting a piece that is only larger by an inch on the front (ex: patterned paper is 5 1/4 x 4 so the ribbon is cut at 5in). Then I cut another 2 inch piece of ribbon & ties a half knot to make it appear as if it went all the way around. Great way to save on ribbon!

This was an easy card using a stamp set that comes with the starter kit, Much Appreciated. Using River Rock, Wild Wasabi, & Purely Pomegratnite CS & Purely Pomegranite double stiched ribbon & rhinestone brads, this was a quick & simple card to make. I think I might use this as a swap at convention next week.

Playin' with New Stamps....

Here are a few samples that I made last night while hanging with a friend. Enjoy!

This card uses the new in-colors: River Rock, Blue Bayou, & Purely Pomegranate & the level 2 hostess stamp set, PERFECT PRESENTATION. I also used the River Rock double stitched ribbon. Man, do I love these new colors!!!

This card is made using Old Olive, Purely Pomegranate, River Rock & Very Vanilla CS. I stamped the tree image in black in & used the blender pens to create the water-colored look. The stamp set is BIG CELEBRATIONS & PERFECT PRESENTATION.

Okay, this is just 3 circles punched (1 3/8 in, 1 1/4in, & 1" circle punches) & using the accents from COLD PLAY to finish off the snowman. Happy Holidays is from SNOWFALL used Not Quite Navy, River Rock,Purely Pomegranate & Very Vanilla CS. The corner "bling" is made of the extra left over from the photo corner punch & the 3/4 in square & a jumbo eyelet. I got to use my crop-a-dile for the first time & I absolutely LOVE it!
