Build a Bear Samples!


Hey everyone,

If you haven’t heard, the Stampin Up- Build a Bear promotion starts in just a few hours! Now you can have your very own Build a Bear stamp sets and die cuts. THese are great for scrapbooking, card making or for creating adorable items for your kids and grandkids. Here are a couple of sample cards using the Build a Bear die cuts and stamps….. 


This one was made by my good friend Lorrie Reid. I hosted a Holiday Mini swap with a bunch of other demos and another one with my downline so I got some awesome samples. I just thought this card was so adorable.  It is almost totally made with the Big Shot machine and Stampin UP dies.






This one was made by one of my FABULOUS downline, Debbie Keane. I think this card is just so cute.  This is a perfect card to give to a little girl for her birthday. She used the Build a Bear stamp set " Beary Best Friends" for this one.

Simple Friendship card


This is a quick and easy card that I did for one of my convention swaps. I thought I had already posted it but I went back and didn’t see it. I got the idea from my downline Niccole Marshall and just had to copy it. It uses the set Simple Friendship and the razzleberry lemonade designer paper.  It is a great make and take card.

Just a few more 6×6 recipe swaps!


 I just had to share a couple more of the recipe swaps. They were so good it was really hard to pick which ones to post. This one was made by my friend Missy Andrews. She is not a demonstrator yet but she should be! SHe is so creative and talented. I love how she made the lattice top on the pie.  I think she would make a great Stampin Up demonstrator. 


This one was made by my downline Niccole Marshall. She did a great job on this one too. The Tart and Tangy set is perfect for any kind of fruit recipe.







 This recipe was done by my friend and customer Jean Baynor. She didn't have time to do the swap but made me one so I could have the recipe. She is so sweet and another one of my very talented customers. I thought this one was just gorgeous.  If you like all of these swaps, please leave some comments and let the girls know what you think.

Check out my recipe swap!


I hosted another recipe swap with my downline and customers and they did a GREAT job so I wanted to share some of them.



This one was made by my friend Christina Luthy. I just loved how she made it look so rustic and western.  She used the Wanted set.










This one was made by one of my talented downline, Sue Bjorgaard. I love how she used the lattice die from the Big Shot to make the oriental look.










This one was made by my downline, Rebecca Weil. I love the little beer mug on here.









This one is mine! I used the Tart and Tangy set to accent the recipe and I punched out the Simple Letter Alphabet with the Big Shot.  I can’t wait to try some of these great recipes.  I will be posting more of the swaps in the next few days so make sure you stop back by.

Number Eight is Really Great!


At my stamp club last night, Carol made cupcakes and stuck a little sign in there that said "Number Eight is Really Great".  That is because I was #8 for demo of the year this year! I was so surprised. SHe had brought them in and set it up in the kitchen and I didn’t even know it until I went in there and saw the sign. Too bad I didn’t get the picture before half of them were eaten! Here is a picture of Carol holding the tray. Thanks Carol for being such a sweetie!
