Autumn Days and Fun Weekend~

I had such a fun weekend!! Started out Friday night stamping and laughing the night away with my awesome friend Melissa! She came over to keep me company while I stamped my samples for the next days demonstration on the baby wipe techinique and I even talked her in to doing some swap cards for me! Thanks a bunch Melissa, we had a great time! On to Saturday...woke up early and hurried over to our demonstrator get together where we learned 10 new techinques and got to try them all! I presented the baby wipe techinique and the others were oh so much fun to do! Plus, I got to catch up and have a good time with my Stampin Up! Family of demos! Nothing bettter than, learning new techniques, getting new ideas, chatting with friends and STAMPING all at the same time! I have some samples for you from that day...first up are two of my baby wipe technique samples from Saturday.......

The stamp set is Autumn Days and it is new in the Idea Book and Catalog. I used Chocolate Chip and a new incolor, dusty durango ink & paper. I also used some of the fabulous dusty durango polka dotted ribbon! I just can't get enough of that stuff!!! Don't forget I am offering samplers of this over in my here for info!
Next up is a sample from my fellow demonstrator and a member of my downline, Sandi Dailey. She made this beautiful sample as part of her presentation on the dry debossing technique. Very cool and easy technique..I would have never guessed! Check out her blog at for more of her beautiful work! She is amazing! I just loved this card!

Stay tuned I will share more of my baby wipe technique later this week along with a tutorial on it!

Circle Circus Fun!

Circle Circus is one of my favorite sets from the new catalog...I love circles and polka dots and anything in between! A circus feels like where I have been over the weekend! Started 5:30 am Saturday getting ready and heading out to the local Pancake breakfast to do a bake sale with my cheerleaders and then my daughter Taylor signed up for the entertainment portion. She loves to sing and has been taking vocal lessons since early spring. She sang, You Belong with Me by Taylor Swift in front of probably the entire town..I was a proud mama and still is a link to her...Keep in mind she is only 10...the courage she has...she had NO nerves! LOL

after that we headed to a birthday party, then to get Shelby's blood draw then finally home! Shew! Sunday was no lighter...started out with a family reunion then the ladies come over for scrapbook club! Then again for a Monday session!! See what I am saying? Crazy like a Circus! I love it though...I don't' know what I would do if I wasn't busy!

On to the samples....Circle Circus!!
This card was totally cased from another demonstrator..Which then gave me inspiration for my scrapbook pages!

These were the scrapbook pages the ladies made at the Scrapbooking Club this month! Moms do the 12x12 pages and the girls do a matching 6x6 page. These are real simple pages....all they have to do is go home and drop their pictures in! I can't wait to go through my pics and fill this page in!WE used new In Colors..Bermuda Bay and Crushed Curry along with an old stand by, Chocolate Chip!

Last but not least...we made this at my New Catalog Open house last week! This uses Bermuda Bay and Basic Black...topped off with a Rhinestone brad!
Til next time..have a great day!

Hello! I have been MIA for a bit....but I did want to let you know I am still around....we have had a family emergency. My youngest Shelby was admitted to the hospital on Thursday...They have diagnosed her with ITP, which is a blood disorder where her body basically kills of her platelet cells in her blood. Her Platelet count was down to 9000 so it was really dangerous. We didn't know what was wrong with her...she had been brusing easily and alot over the past month or so which concerned me so I took her in and they did blood test to check her out. This is what they found and let me tell you I was freaking when the dr called me and told me I need to take her to the ER asap but doing better now that I understand what it is and she has had a sucessful treatment for needless to say we have been at the hospital til today which didn't leave much time for stamping or thinking really...I am exausted but will be back later this week after I catch up on everything else! Here is a cute picture of my sweet Shelby from the hospital...she has to wear a helment til her platelets come up so there is no chance of a brain bleed if she hits her head! She actually likes it! So I will be back with some more ideas and such soon! to those who were planing on attending the 5 for $5 last Friday that I had to cancel on...I will be rescheduling it...

Last Chance Samples!

Well as I suspected I was not able to stay up last night and today was not very productive either! I can't remember a day I layed around and did just about nothing! I think I am on the mend though but I couldn't muster up energy to do much of anything today! I did however find some samples to share with you of some of my favorite stamps that are on the Last Chance list you can find here. Enjoy and don't let these get away...after June 30th they are gone forever!
This one uses Great Grad...I love this set and made many of these gift card holders for upcoming open houses because all graduates want cash of course! I will also be using this set for some scrapbooking of my sons Kindergarten Graduation and my nephews album! Don't let this one get away...I am told there is no new Graduation Set replacing this one in the new catalog! Defiantly a keeper! Click here to see the set.

This is the current Ronald McDonald Charity set that is on the list. I have to say this was the 1st one I LOVED. Why do you ask.....because it fit in the scalloped edged square punch perfect! Such great sayings too! Click here to see the set I will tell you that after I took this picture and put my info on it I noticed an "imperfection" if you will, in my stamping! GASP! Shocker I know, butI decided to share anyway, you may not even notice (now your looking right?) but if you do, you will know that I am not a perfect stamper even though I may have tricked you into thinking so! Oh, you were thinking that I was? How sweet! :) but I usually only post the ones that turned out here! Here is one of my favorites of all time! Perfect Princess! This was the invitation I made for my youngest 1st Birthday! The party information was on the back of the picture. This is another must have for girls of any age! Click here to see the rest of the set!
This card uses the Spot on Stamp Set...this too has been a favorite of mine. Such a simple set to use and the circles fit right in the punches which you know I LOVE! Click here to see the set.
This card was given to me by my dear sweet friend, Tricia for my birthday! It is a great card using Big Bold Birthday which is also on the Last Chance list! Click here to see the set!

All Oval Double Pocket Bags Galore!

That about sums it up! I was up late last Wed, way too late I might add, working on these gifts for teachers, bus drivers and aids at the kids school as an end of year thank you. But you know, that this how I roll.. LOL I had a ton of fun making these and using all the designer paper. You can see my origianl post here along with some additional pictures of the inside. All the bags included (4) 3x3 note cards & envelopes and the other pocket held some candy, chocolate of course! I used the All Ovals set along with the Lg Oval and Scalloped Oval punch on all the bags and cards. This set and the designer paper made it sooo easy to whip these up! I really love the set, it can be found in the Occasions Mini catalog along with the scalloped Oval Punch. I really think it is a must have set...I took a picture of all the designs I made to share with you.... I hope to be able to stamp tonight if I can stay up. My stamping time is after everyone goes to bed but unfortunately I have a bad cold and might not make it. I know...who gets a cold in June right? Lucky me.... You will probably have to click on the pictures for a bigger one or to see detail...I made them small so they wouldn't take up so much space! Enjoy!

The two above feature the Bella Rose Designer Series paper.This one features the Sweet Always Designer Series paper. One of my favorites!

This set uses the Pink Pirouette DSP along with the Daisy Big Shot die with a ch chip corduroy button in the middletwith some pink grosgrain ribbon !

A close up of the turned out so pretty!
This one also features the Sweet Always DSP paper. I was experimenting with some different toppers besides a purse handle but have deiced that the handles look the best!

That's it for now, it was hard to pic a favorite on and which one to give to who!
....stay tuned for some samples of some last chance items as I go though my sample bin!

Remember this page that was featured on the post for my last scrapbook class? I couldn't remember where I found the inspiration for it and I am sooooo glad Rochelle at let me know today she was where I found my inspiration! I loved this page and did it from memory, but it looks like I came pretty close to her original you can see here! I always want to give credit where credit is due! You should pop over and check out the rest of her creations, she is an amazing stamper! I changed a few things from hers but you can see from hers why I loved it! I so LOVE scrapbooking and looking and drawing inspiration from other scrapbookers! Not only did it inspire my scrapbook page it inspired 6x6 pages and a card! I love it!

For the card I used a summer sun corduroy button but for the scrapbook pages I punched out a circle in summer sun and added crystal effects to the circle and then covered in micro beads for the center of my flower! so many possibilities with this Big Shot die!
Thanks again Rochelle and to all those out there who share their creations!

All Ovals, All Holidays and Designer Series paper organizer

Before I head off for my day of doctors appointments and hair cuts and girls scout trip (wonderful day off right?)...I thought I would start the day with these cards! These were really easy cards made simple by our beautiful Designer Series Paper! It takes all the guess work out of it!
First up is this awesome fathers day card. I always struggle with masculine cards, I have a hard time with them...I decided to go check out what was in my Designer Paper bin and found some scraps of Urban Garden so I used that, then stamped the Happy Fathers Day from the All Holidays set I got FREE as my reward during Sale-A-Bration this year! Yep I said I got it FREE! Actually this year I was able to choose 5 stamp sets of any price for FREE! It is GOOD to be a demonstrator! :) I finished up this with a scrap of Kiwi kiss ribbon! The designer series paper sampler is PERFECT for cards like these! Don't miss out on getting one for endless possiblities for your projects!

This one uses the Bella Rose Designer Series Paper. It is so beautiful and one of my favorites. I used a 4x4 piece of the paper and cut a strip of Kiwi Kiss cardstock for the top and used my Eyelet Border punch along the bottom of that piece. Tied some Riding Hood Red taffeta ribbon around the top and finished off with the All Ovals Stamp set along with my Lg Oval and new Scalloped Oval punch!
Here is a close up of the All Ovals Stamp set. I stamped it in Riding Hood Red and punched it out with the Lg Oval then put some crystal effects over the butterfly and words. You may have to click on the picture to get the full effect

Last but not least I wanted to share with you something I did last weekend when I was cleaning up my office and work area. I had a mess of Designer Series paper on my table. I have paper keepers like this one all over but I am always in a hurry and just leave them when I am done. So I came up with this! I am so excited..Ia m not claiming this is my original I prob ally seen it somewhere and stored it in the back of my brain somewhere for future use! Who knows! But anyway I felt like a genius!

Here is what I did. I took the cardboard insert that comes with the designer series paper and punched our the information on the back with my 1 3/4 in circle punch. then I took some sticky strip and adhered it to the top! Hopefully the the picture gives you a good idea...if not let me know and I can explain more!

Have a blessed day!

Have a wonderful weekend! I am looking forward to mine! I will be joining my oldest daughter Taylor on a weekend getaway with her girls scout troop. It is a mystery trip so the girls have no idea where we are going or what we are going to do! I am going to take some Designer Series paper along to make some more of those purses I posted last week for year end teacher gifts! I can't wait to give them to them!


Well I appoligise for my abscense.. I was on a role. The school year is coming to an end and I just have been soooo busy! Memorial weekend was very productive though! We did not go anywhere really so one night I spent scrapbooking and cleaning my office (not in that order!) I was really productive! I got 6 pages done...I know your impressed right? Well I have to confess they were not f rom scratch....I went through my pages I created for my scrapbooking club and put picutres on them! It felt so good to just sort through the pics and adhere on the page...felt very productive. I even went back and jouraled on some pages I had not done yet. I use to alwasy leave that becuase I didn't like my handwriting but have decided that in itself is an heirloom! My aunt found some things my grandma wrote and I loved seeing her handwriting! So here are some pages

This is one of my sweet baby Shelby at 9 months. I used some Sweet Always designer paper(DSP) to make it all work. I covered a piece of chipboard with some of the same paper. I love how it all goes together! You can't go wrong with DSP!

Here is a great page that I just added pictures to. This page was created by a fellow demonstrator Melissa Roberts. last year some fellow demonstrators did a scrapbooking swap and this is one of the spreads I received in the swap. Great itsnt' it? This is only one perk of being a demonstrator or purchasing the kit!
These were some pictures from a long time ago...I am guessing about 6 years ago..I still need to figure that part out. The page uses some Urban Garden Designer Series paper and then I did some journaling with a white gel pen (love those things!)on a top note cut from the Big Shot. I used a corduroy button from the 1st embellishment sampler I did. I love a having a few of each of the embellishments to try out, it has worked out perfect! Some I have went and bought full packs of because I love them so much (like the rhinestone brads and corduroy brads!)
There is still room for the accessory samplers and designer paper samplers which I am extending for orders til this Sunday the 31st! Click here to find out more about them! You also have until Sunday to take advantage of the buy 3 get 1 Free on packs of Designer Series paper and Textured Papers! Click here to read more about this special and then click Shop now to see all the beautiful papers to choose from!

Here is another one of Shelby. This one uses the Happy Heart Day stamp set. This was a page we did at a scrapbooking club last year. I love this set, it has a lot of possibilities!
