Gifts for downline and friends

I made these tins for my downline and a few friends for convention. I bought the tins at a craft store and inside I put a Starbuck's gift card. They are pretty easy to decorate. I basically just copied a card I made for my July clubs. It is posted back on July 18th if you want to go check it out. I stamped the Elements of Style onto the Big shot die cut butterflies and then colored them with pretty in pink and certainly celery markers.

Stamping fun at my friend Cindy’s house!


Here is my awesome friend Cindy Petersen. She was so kind to invite us to her house to stamp right after we arrived in Salt Lake but first she took us to lunch at Cafe Rio's (yummmm!). She had the cutest stamp room!

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is all of us who went!  (Susan, me, Mary Jo, Christie, Cindy, Angie and Sharon)We had such a great time! I miss everyone already.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cindy had 4 really cute projects for us to make and I think I could have stayed there all day just checking out all of the cool things in her stamp room.

 

 

 

 

 

This is my good friend Sharon Armstrong.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The theme of the day! If you look closely you can see my reflection in the picture.

Wow! Look at all this free stuff!

 

Most of you know that I just returned from the Stampin' Up convention in Salt Lake City. It was such a blast to spend a week with so many great friends and learn lots of wonderful new ideas. My head was exploding from all of the cool projects I saw there. But, one of the best things about convention (besides seeing all of my friends of course) is all the FREE stuff you get! This is just part of my freebie pile. I still got lots of swaps and gifts from friends too.  The pink and orange bag is the one that everyone got as a convention bag and it was filled with lots of goodies and stamp sets. Then the other bag with the flowers on it is my Founder's Circle bag. I got that one for being in the top 100 demos in the country. I earned spot  #23 this year. I couldn't have done it without all of my wonderful customers and downline. They are super duper fantastic!!! Then on the last day of convention, Shelli surprised us all with a packet of goodies from the new Holiday mini coming out in about a month! The crowd went wild when she announced it and the Stampin Up employees brought them all out for everyone. It was one crazy day! Convention is such a fantastic time for everyone who goes. It is like a giant slumber party with all of your girlfriends for the week. No cooking, cleaning, kids, laundry at all!!! Just FUN! I encourage all demonstrators to go next year if you have never been to experience the excitement of it all.

Artistic Etchings



This gorgeous card was made by my friend Deb Valder for a swap I hosted last month. I love the Artistic Etchings set on pg 125 in our big Stampin Up idea book and catalog. It is so great for doing all different types of cards. She also added some texture to the card by using the square lattice embossing folder to the background piece. I just love it!

Elements of Style Butterfly

 


This is a card I did in all of my July classes.  I saw a similar card on the front of the Stampin' Up summer mini catalog and I just changed it up a little bit. I love pink and brown so I changed it to my favorite colors. I punched out the butterflies using the Big Shot butterfly die and then I stamped the Elements of Style on it and colored it with pretty in pink and celery markers. I tried to make it vintage looking so I distressed and sponged the edges.

 

 

 


Here is a close up of the ribbon. I just kind of accordion folded it but I didn't really try to make it uniform.

Homemade and to die for!

 

Doesn't this look yummy? My friend and downline Tiffany Thompson brought these for everyone at my downline meeting this month. This is a homemade chocolate truffle and it is packaged so nicely in this cello bag and then in one of our fancy favor boxes made with the Big Shot die cutting machine. The Homemade stamp is on pg 18 in our big catalog and idea book. It is great for any homemade item but will be especially perfect around the holidays and it is only $8.95!

Cute little tin gift idea


I was organizing my stamp room a couple weeks ago and found a couple boxes full of these cute little tins that I bought several years back….amazing what you find when you start cleaning, huh? Anyway, my open house was coming up last week so I decided to use them as one of the make and take projects. I gave everyone a Peppermint Patty for inside and then on the top, we punched out some flowers with the flower punch and then stamped on the white ones with the Elements of Style set from the Stampin' Up summer mini. Then we colored it in with markers ( celery and pretty in pink) and sponged it a little to give it that aged look. This is a super quick and easy idea and I am sure these tins are at any arts and craft store in the wedding section probably.
