My first video!

 

Ok stampers, I finally got up the courage to make a video. Please don’t laugh. I could not get the video camera to be in the right place. I had it on a tripod and I wanted it to be kind of looking over me but that was impossible so I put it next to me and kind of filmed it from the side but the camera was sideways and when I edited it to rotate the picture, it came out like that so I will have to practice some more. I was too tired to do it over again. Anyway, I posted this card a couple of days ago and had several questions about it so I thought I would try the video.

Love the Medallion look

 


Here is a card I made with the Medallion background stamp. My friend Kimberly Van Diepen did one similar to this and I loved it so much I had to copy the idea.  I stamped it in black craft and then embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then I took a jumbo grommet and rubbed it in the black stazon pad to give it a little distressed look, and pushed that through the center of the medallion. For the center circle, I stamped the smallest image from Circle Circus and punched it out with the 1/2 inch punch and put a build a brad bubble on top. The sentiment is from A Rose is a Rose. I didn’t have much room down there and wanted a long stamp but this one didn’t show up quite dark enough for me.

Scenic Season

 

I love this set! You can find Scenic Season on pg 35 of the big catalog. The trees, words and bird are all on one stamp so it makes it so easy to whip out a bunch of cards in no time.  I punched out a 1 1/4 circle from a post it and used that for the moon and then sponged all around it. THen I removed it and you get that cool look. I have glitter on all of the trees but it is hard to see it in the photo.

Autumn splendor…what a gorgeous set!

 

 

Here is a card I did in all of my stamp clubs this month. I used the Autumn Splendor set from the holiday mini and then I did the baby wipe technique for the leaf. It is a super easy technique…just take a baby wipe, lay it on a small plate or tray and then drop about 12 drops of each refill color onto it. I used more mustard, really rust and chocolate chip. Then this is your ink pad to stamp on.

My Digital Studio is available in 3 days!

 

 

 

 

Ok stampers, this is my first digital scrapbook page! It only took me about 10 minutes. I was just messing around with the new "My Digital Studio" that Stampin Up just came out with and I am hooked. This is for all scrapbookers who have 5 million photos and no time to do them (like me) . You can whip out a whole book in about 2 hours. Then either print them yourself or have Stampin Up do it for you. You get a nice bound book ready to show your friends in about a week or so.  This 2 disc set contains over 3000 images to use on your scrapbook pages including cardstock, designer papers, stamps, brads, buttons, ribbons, and lots more! It is normally $79. 95 but you can get it for half price if you host a $400 class in Oct. or Nov. . You really can get it for free as part of your hostess benefits.

 


Here is my second attempt….added a little bow on this one…. 10 minutes total!

Ok, I am almost done posting Founder’s Circle stuff….

I just have so much fun stuff to share from Founder’s Circle….. I will post some of the swaps starting tomorrow.

 

Here is another pic from the pajama party. I stole this one off Kimberly’s blog since she hasn’t sent me the originals yet. She is my photographer. That is Dawn Rapsas, me, Christie Schroeger, and Dawn Griffith. We all helped Dawn R. with her swaps and we were covered in glitter from head to toe. We finished them with about 2 minutes to spare.  

 

 

This is Cori Hancock and Bonnie Thurber . They both work at Stampin Up and made our trip extra special. They are so much fun.

 

 


Here are BJ Peters, Cheryl Flynn, and Tami White. I had so much fun hanging out with them last week.

 

 

 

 

 

This was the gathering place where we did our make and takes and just hung out. It was so relaxing in there.

 

 

 

  

 

Stampin Up had a huge stash of candy in the gathering place for us. Everytime you went in there, there were tables of candy all around the room so you always had to stop and grab some. This is Tami and Leasa sneaking some…..

 

 

 

 This is our farewell dinner the last night. We went to a country club called The Ledges which was gorgeous. I am in the front row center wearing a black top. If you get a magnifying glass you can see me!

Day 3 of Founder’s Circle

 

My upline Jill Olsen invited everyone in her downline who earned Founder’s Circle to come to her house for a little get together. She showed us so many cool things including quilting with the Big Shot.

 

 

Here is one of the quilts Jill made. She put several of these quilts on display at our hotel so everyone could see them. This one was my favorite though. Any of you that know me, know that pink is my favorite color. This quilt was made with the flower folds die. You can punch out a bunch of these flowers with just one pass through the Big Shot. How easy is that?

 

 

 

 

 

Here are a couple of banners that Jill made using the pennant die in the Big Shot. I got to make one of these last year at Founder’s Circle too.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here is Jackie Bolhuis taking a break from our busy day. We saw so many great ideas, our heads were about to explode. We all couldn’t wait to go home and try some of these ideas.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here is my good friend Kimberly Van Diepen. I don’t think she ever takes a bad picture.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This last one is a quilt square that Jill showed us how to make. I can’t wait to try it. This uses the 5 point star die in the Big SHot.
