 I had an event this weekend for my PEEPS who Have been my core group of stampers since when I started as a Demonstrator 9 1/2 years ago-We missed our friend JoAnne and amother  stamper, Debbie has moved out of Texas.
I sent out an invitation the asked
Do You Trust Me?
Linda, Lorraine, Marcia and Melinda were able to accept and attend. I am posting this as one of my 6monthstampingoals#

We had the best time as I gave them a Paper Pumpkin Party and we did a make n take.

 The food was fabulous and the Champagne was cold! They really loved the card we did with the in Free gift in the April PP - such a cute set!

 These are a few photos from convention at the Paper Pumpkin area. Never be upset with what is in the kit..Always check out all the alternative ideas all the faulous Demonstrators make and post on the internet and Pintrest and Face Book.

 The Lovely Wreath turns into a cute Holiday wreath

Here are two other ideas if you arent in love with the Wreath-
cut off all the leaves and you can make cute cactus note cards or start your Holiday card making and turn them into a cute card to mail-

Finally, here is the card we made with the All About Everything FREE stamp set that was in the April Kit. I wanted them to all experience the fun and surprise I get every month.
It was a fun way to say thank you all for your support and love.

Thanks for stopping by today and letting me share with you -
I hope you are stamping and being creative.
See you again soon- 
thanks so much

Where has the Month gone? June, Already?

I can not believe I have not posted since May 9th! It's been a busy month both at work and with a few extra trips up to OKC to see my Mother. She had a little tumble, nothing broken that goodness and then this last week a little episode breathing and she panicked and called 911.
All is good now, and we will be back up in OKC next weekend to celebrate her 91st Birthday.

I am drawing my design to make her a special card for the occasion. Havent started it yet, but I have about 5 days to get it done.
My sister sent me the card she has made-

Look familiar? This was the Dec  Paper Pumpkin calendar kit. How nice to create it as a card front and circle the special day for someone's Special event. Wouldn't this even be a great Wedding Card?
How special would that be for the new bride and groom.

Here is a swap card I made for a group I joined, who are from all over the USA.
There are 11 of us and every month we send our cards in and get some really nice
Over The Top samples.
We have to do 4-5 layers and embellishments etc. Its so fun to really go all out
May was for Wedding, Sympathy or Anniversary.
Ready-stamp all your elements

 Set-Figure how how you want to place them-
(how about that coral nail polish!!!)

Go- The final outcome. It i s a Z-fold card.
4 1/4 x 11
score at 5 1/2
then score the front at 2 3/4 and you band it backwards.


Well... I dont want to ramble on but think I better give you a break!
Hope you are enjoying the New catalog. If you need a copy, just let me know.
My Wish list is large- bet yours will be too!
Thanks for stopping by today!

Some samples for you-

So, my class I taught at ON STAGE LIVE was about the ALL-INCLUSIVE kits Stampin UP sells.
These come with an exclusive photoPolymer stamp set and a clear block to use with the stamps. There are adorable die cuts and embellishments also. The OH HAPPY DAY kit has 20 cards and some are "fun-folds" We have not had cards like these in kits before! There are regular sized cards, note cards, fun-folds and some cute 3x3 cards. This kit will be available June when the new catalog is

My task was to show you that the kit lives on after all your cards are done and made up- You still have an adorable stamp set to use with all your other stampin up products. Let me share the new 
In - colors with you and the two exclusive stamp sets from the two kits and a new Hostess set coming out.

 These are the new In Colors-
 Sweet Sugar Plum, Emerald Envy, Peek a boo Peach,  Dapper Denim  and Flirty Flamingo

These cute 3x3s were made with new in colors and the stamp set in


 This one below is Vellum that is embossed in white and markers colored on the back sidc. The stamp is from the Water Color Wishes kit. It s a regular sized card.
Try out these ALL INCLUSIVE kits- they contain every thing you need but the adhesive and scissors you need to put the kit together- 
I cant wait for you to see all the new  things coming in the catalog June 1st!

Thanks for stopping by today, I will share more of the samples in a couple days for you-
Need to download some more of the ON STAGE photos for you-

A Successful class!

The Endless Birthday Wishes card class was a lot of FUN! I have done the class three times so far-

Peggy C was at the class in OKC along with My sister and Mother

Then I did the class April 30th with my stampin Peeps Melinda, Marcia  and Lorraine-
I cant not believe we got no photos!!!#imbringingbirthdaysback#6monthstampingoals

Third class was with My stampin Peep JoAnne W.

I mailed out two classes in the mail and the third one will go out this week-
This has been one of the fastest and fun classes we have done in a long time.
Seems like I should do more Classes by Mail????

 Here is another really cute card to so with this Endless BD Wishes set-

Isnt this cute? It is from the new Catalog boards that were up at the ON STAGE Live event in SLC a few weeks ago.

Hope you are stampin a lot and if your a demonstrator, place your pre-order so you can enjoy making samples and using your new projects to share with customers and friends when the catalog
 goes live in June-

Thanks for stopping by today and I will start to send you photos of my samples from the class I thought

A few more samples I did for the board at ONSTAGE LIVE

It was so funny trying to use my brain and be creative to make my own samples! I was to do 12-15 of them to display.
I work outside the home and rely on CASING from the fabulous ladies who post on the internet. But, not this time. I was on my own. YIKES!
I used the curvey box thinlit and the botanical blooms thinlits to decorate the box. The "HI" is from the OH HAPPY DAY kit. The flowers are Flirty Flamingo on emerald envy box. I cut that top flower in half so when you open it, you dont tear up the box.

I am making myself get used to the  Emeral Envy in color-

I used the confetti emboss folder and made my own DSP paper that is under the Lable.
Have you ever shredded your white jute ribbon? I did and colored it Emerald Envy also.
The Label framelit is the largest one. Then I used the metal framlit as pattern and
 traced it on a piece of Flirty Flamingo for the bottom layer you see.
Cool huh?

so this one-

I love the Sweet SugarPlum in color! This is the Birthday Celebrations.... i think-.
I made soft sky clouds and Tip Top Taupe Flying thingies and clear Whink of Stella .
Its amazing that after your kit is gone, the stamp set lives on!!!!

n a couple days, I will have the last part of the samples.
Thank you for stopping bu my site today!
There is more to come-
Soon the new catalog will be out and I cant wait for you to see it!

Happy stampin!

Swap card

We had a demonstrator group swap a couple month ago for the Go Stamp It Sisters- I think  my friend
Vicki had done this card, I changed only the ribbon in the know from Lace to the cotton ribbon and I added some rhinestones just to step it up a bit-
It's a wonderful card - just so feminine -

This framelit is on sale until midnight Monday 4-11- 16
It is beautiful and works so well with the Rose Wonder stamp set. Its a must have!

Thanks for stopping by today!
Happy Stamping!

Easter Carrot Banner

Happy Easter! We seem to be on the Spring time roller coaster here in Texas lately.
One week it is 80 degrees and the next the nights are back down to 38 and 40 degrees.I planted a few things and they are mixed up as the weather keeps changing.
So last weekend I had seen some cute carrots people were making on the internet.
I thought they would make a  nice banner.

I made mine using tangerine tango and cucumber crush. The strip for the carrot is 3/4 x 6 1/2

scored at 1/2 then 3 1/4 then at the 6" mark down into the center.

The cucumber crush is 3/4 x 6 1/4
scored at 1/2, 1 1/4, 2, 3 1/8, 4 1/4, 5,5 3/4.
I did the same thing-folded in half on the 3 1/8 mark first. Then you can see how to bend back and forth so the last 1/2 is going to insert down into the center of the carrot, I used Mono Glue to hold it all together-
I want to show the back how I attached to the gold baker twine.

I punched a 1/4 circle punch and put some glue on the back of the carrot then placed the circle on top of the bakers twine.

Then I decided I needed some banners-

I used the Little Numbers Framelits and the scallop oval

I had so much fun making it!It is on the front of my cubicle at work for this week-
Then I will bring it home and put on my mantel at home for the weekend.
It got a lot of comments!
I hope you are having fun making some Easter Cards. I will share some later this week that helped my Mother make  to mail out.
Thanks for stopping by!

Metallics Glitter Tape by Stampin’ Up!

Check out one of the new SAB items!

EUREKA! I fixed it-

I figured it out what I did wrong.
My idea of saving some battery life was where I went wrong.
Dont ever turn off your Photo "SHARE"
So, to get caught up, I want to show you a few of my Cards from Valentines and the treat bags I took to work.
Here is the card I made for my Husband-

I love this beautiful, intricate heart thinlit die.
You must get it! Spoil your self and get the Big Shot Die brush and pad.
 It makes it so easy to get all the tiny parts out and helps to release it from the thinlit with out using wax paper!
Here is a card  I made for my Mother-

Again, used that Bloomin Heart Thinlit die
and added some of the Blushing Bride sequins.

Here are the treat bags.

I used the kraft gift bags.
Cut each side down 2 1/5 inches them folded it down. Remember a while back when Stampin Up showed these done by decorating with the Tag A Bag kit? It was so simple and easy!
I but boxes of conversation hearts in each one.
They were a big hit.

Well, that's all my Valentine share for you today.
Thank you for your patience and understanding,
Have a great day and do some stamping!
