Demo of the month
Here are some more of the awesome projects that Rachelle created. This first one is a framed art piece using a frame you can pick up almost anywhere. I love how she cut out the opening and put the words kind of set back. Isn't it gorgeous?
This is a really sweet card she made for Valentine's Day. She used the Tiny Tags set and the jewelry punch to create the "LOVE" hanging there.
This one is made with the Greenhouse Gala designer papers that are featured in our big catalog. I love this ribbon technique. It is a favorite of mine.
I think this is my favorite project of all…..another framed art with the Fun Flowers die and more of the Greenhouse Gala papers. She also stamped the background using Elements of Style and then colored in the flowers. It is so vintage looking. I just love it.
Here is a close up of the flower part inside the frame. This Flower die is so popular, it has already sold out and we are waiting for another shipment to come in. Stampin Up can't keep them in stock because they are selling so fast.
Here is another Valentine's card but it really could also be for an anniversary or wedding. It is so simple but also elegant. The background is the En Francais set.
Here is a composition notebook that Rachelle covered in the Elegant Soiree designer papers found on pg 175 in the big Stampin Up idea book. Then she decorated it with the paper daisies and build a brad. THese would make great gifts for teachers or friends.
Here is a close up of the flowers and the brad and the punched edging. Very nice details that add so much.
Each month I feature one of my fantastic downline to showcase. This month I am featuring Niccole Marshall. Niccole was one of my very first customers after I became a demonstrator 9 years ago. She signed up several years ago and has been going strong ever since. Here are a few of the projects that Niccole submitted to me this month……
This first one is a little cork board she found at the dollar store and decorated. How cute is that?
This one is a great back to school gift for the classroom. What child wouldn't want to get something like this?
This is a card folder with notecards inside. The paper is retired but can easily be switched out with current papers.
Here is a view of the inside of the folder with the notecards shown.
This one is a gum holder. This is a great little gift to carry around with you and give to a friend.
Here is the gum that fits perfectly inside.
Each month I feature one of my fabulous downline as the demo of the month. It is a way for me to show off their hard work and get them to go out of the box with their stamping ideas too.
This month I am showcasing Liz Velazquez. Liz is a super talented demonstrator and I can't wait to show you some of the cool projects she made for me!
This first project is a cute box she covered with our designer paper and then decorated with flowers.
Inside she put a couple of teabags wrapped in cello and a belly band with another flower. How cute is that?
This card uses one of my favorite sets, Elements of Style. Liz colored in all of the flowers in gorgeous spring colors. I love the white satin ribbon on this one too.
Then she went tropical and made several cute things using the Tropical Party stamp set and the Island Oasis designer paper. This first project is framed art which I am sure my daughter is going to steal and put in her bedroom. She has a giant surfboard to match on the wall in there.
Here is a cute card using the same stamp set and paper. It is so versatile you can use it for almost anything.
Next she did a 2 page tropical scrapbook layout. These would be perfect to use for my recent Stampin Up Caribbean vacation! Thanks Liz! Stay tuned for more projects from Liz coming later in the week. To see more samples from Liz, you can also check out her blog here.
I am starting a new thing this month. I wanted to encourage my downline to spread their wings a little so I am going to be featuring one of my downline each month as a demo of the month. They have to make several projects and submit them to me to be featured. I am very proud to present my first featured demo of the month. Her name is Sandy Alexander and she is a fabulous stamper. I am so excited to have her as part of my downline. Here is her picture. You might have seen her a few days ago on my blog showing off the quilt purse she made at my house.
Here are a few of the awesome projects she has made lately….the first one is a Valentine treat bag made with the Big shot and the Top note die. I love the shabby chic look of this one. I will be showing more of her projects later in the week too.
The next one is a cute owl card that shows off our new polka dot embossing folder from the Occasions mini.
Here is a cute birthday card….sweet and simple.
I love this birdhouse card made with the new bird punch. She also used the pinking hearts border punch for the roof line.
