Featured Demo of the Month (part 2)





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.


Featured Demo of the Month!(part 1)



I would like to introduce you to my March demo of the month, Rachelle Escalanti. Rachelle is one of my incredibly talented downline and she volunteered to be the featured demo this month.

Rachelle has been a demo for less than a year but she is already creating some fabulous projects!

This one is a gorgeous candle that she wrapped in our designer papers and then made a tag for the front using the Bliss stamp set from the sale-a-bration mini. How cute is that?





Here is a close up of that tag on the front of the candle.




Here is a cute tea bag holder that she made out of the scalloped envelope die in the big shot.







This is an adorable calendar made out of a wooden clipboard you can find at a craft store. She covered it in our designer papers and then printed a calendar from the computer.



This is a coaster calendar made out of chipboard coasters and covered with the designer papers.





This last one is a 3×3 notecard made with the Love Letter designer papers. That is one of my favorites. I will post more of Rachelle's projects later this week!


Featured Demonstrator of the Month (Part 2)


Last week I posted an article about this month's featured demo, Kelly Hogge. Kelly is one of my fabulous downline and I love to brag about them so each month I pick one of them and share some of their creations. I can never fit them all in one post so here is part 2 of Kelly's. I love this first card. It is so elegant looking to me. I love the red and black combo.

This one is an adorable paperclip. It is one of those giant ones that teachers often use to hold papers. What a great teacher's gift a set of these would make!






This adorable pouch reminds me of a carrot gift box that you might see around Easter time. I love it in the Greenhouse Gala designer paper.







This card would make a great thank you card for someone to give for a baby gift or a baby shower. New moms always need thank you cards too!






This last one is so simple but really cute. I love, love, love the new Word Play set and this card uses that for the sentiment.  Really quick and easy.


Featured Demonstrator of the Month! (part 1)


It is time for me to show off another one of my fabulous downline again! This month I am featuring Kelly Hogge. Kelly has been a demonstrator for many years and is so talented. She has a full time job at a local school during the day and is a stamper at night.


Here is a picture of Kelly.

And, here are a few of her wonderful projects…..






This card is just gorgeous. She used the new Elegant Lines embossing folder for the background and then stamped the top part with the Always Elegant stamp set on pg. 67. I just love this one.






For this one, Kelly used the Word Play stamp set for the sentiment and then decorated with the Greenhouse Gala designer paper. I love the striped ribbon accent on this one too.









This one is a cute notepad holder made from our new Play Date file folders found on pg 180.











Here is a view of the inside….





This last card is so cute. Kelly used the new owl punch to design this one. I love how she did the pear ribbon also. More samples to come in a few days!


Featured demo of the month (part 2)


Here is part 2 of my Featured Demonstrator of the Month post. This month I am spotlighting Debbie Keane, a wonderful demonstrator in my downline. Here is another fabulous project she made. This one is the Fancy Favor bag made using the big shot die. It is decorated with the Artistic Etchings stamp set on pg 125 in the Stampin Up catalog. I love this stamp set!




This one is a 6×6 recipe page. I love this because I have a whole 6×6 scrapbook to put these recipes in. They make great gifts, especially at Christmas!




I think this is my favorite thing that she made because it was so creative! She used the eyelet border punch and then hung mini cards from it and it says " Lisa's Cards" on the top. This is Totally Tess instead of me…..that waist is definitely too small to be mine! LOL! It kind of reminds me of Barbie's figure.







Here is a cute tropical card made with the Tropical Party stamp set in the summer mini catalog.





This is a really cute box with little mini note cards and envelopes inside. This would also be a great gift idea.






Here is a view of the inside of the box.  Debbie used the same Tropical Party stamp set for this project too.


July Demonstrator of the Month! (part 1)


If you follow my blog, then you know each month I pick one of my fabulous downline to be featured as the demo of the month! It is exciting for them to be showcased and I get a chance to brag about how awesome they are! This month, I am happy to present Debbie Keane as the featured demo of the month. Debbie has been a stamper for longer than I have!  Now she is hooked on Stampin' Up and I am proud to have her in my downline. She created a whole pile of cool things for me to post this month. You can also check out more of Debbie's samples on her blog here. I have to post this on 2 separate days because there are so many wonderful projects to show you.






This first project is a 12×12 scrapbook page using the travel journal designer paper featured in the Stampin Up summer mini. This is an awesome page for any trip you want to take!



Debbie also likes to knit so she made these cute dishcloths and then wrapped them in the Island Oasis designer papers (also in the Stampin Up summer mini). These would make a great gift!




Here is a close up of the tag which is from the Hand Knit stamp set on pg 65 in the Stampin Up catalog.



This is an adorable journal Debbie made for me that has an L on the front for Lisa! She used more of the Island Oasis paper for the front of this.








For this card, Debbie used the Apple Blossoms level 2 hostess set on pg 12 in the Stampin Up catalog.  Very cute and pretty quick and easy.





This is another card showing the Apple Blossoms stamp set. You can get this set for FREE by hosting a Stampin Up party! A set of these would be great for teacher's gifts.


Featured Demo of the Month part 2




Here is part 2 of my featured demo of the month post. This month I am showcasing my downline  Liz Velazquez . She made so many cute things I wanted to show them all. This first project opens up and holds a gift card inside…..really adorable!



This card is so cool. I didn't know how she did it so she had to explain it to me. She used melted crayons (touch the tip of the crayon to a hot iron) and then rubbed it on the glossy cardstock. Here is a tutorial if you want to see how it is done.  I will have to try that one sometime! Use a craft iron though so you don't mess up your good one!



This is one of our adorable mini file envelopes. I LOVE these and I am so bummed they are retiring! Liz decorated it with a tropical look and more Thoroughly Modern designer paper. This is the front view.




This is the back view. More flowers and paper….





Here is what it looks like inside with all the dividers….






This last project is a 2-for 1 special. You get a cute box, then when you open it up……





There is a beautiful butterfly pin inside. How cool is that?






Here is a close up of the pretty pin. She made it by layering several sheets of paper together and then gluing them with modge podge to make it extra thick and sturdy. I love it! Thanks Liz for making such awesome projects! You did a great job! To see more of Liz's projects, scroll back a few days to part 1.


May Featured Demo of the month part 2



Last week I featured Melissa Riker as this month's demo of the month. Here is part 2 of that post….





These are some more of Melissa's cute projects.







This one is a cute gift card holder. She used the Bloomin Beautiful set and watercolored it.









Here is an adorable little scrapbook that she made for me for the Caribbean cruise I just took thanks to Stampin UP.



Featured demo of the month part 2

Here is part 2 of my featured demonstrator of the month (Melissa Carr).



This first project is a tea tin…..how cute is that! It is filled with tea bags and she even decorated the spoon with butterflies.





Here is a view from the top….







Melissa made this card with the Spring Song set from pg 102 in the big Stampin Up idea book and catalog.







This is a triangle box she made using the scallop envelope die in the Big Shot.  The flowers are also from a big shot embosslit die.







Here is a view from the top.







This card was made with the Fifth Avenue Floral set. Melissa embossed these flowers and then colored them using the aquapainter and refill technique. It came out so pretty.







This last one is a scrapbook page of Melissa's son. I love the colors in this one.


Featured Demonstrator of the month! (Part 1)


Each month I am showcasing one of my talented downline as a "featured demo of the month" and this month it is Melissa Carr!

She has only been a demonstrator for a short while but already she is doing some fantastic things including those quilt bags. She has made some unbelievable bags that I have already shown on my blog.  Here are a few of her other creative projects….





She brought all of these to our meeting last night and this was definitely my favorite one! I just loved these coasters and the box she made to put them in. She has made a ton of them for gifts and I told her she needs to sell them at craft shows.




She stamped the coasters in black stazon and then colored them using a blender pen and the craft inks. THen she baked them at 350 for 20 minutes and sprayed them with acrylic sealer.  I think they came out fantastic! Here are directions for the box

This is for a set of 4×4 inch coasters with felt feet.  

Cut CS 7 ½ x 8 ¾

With 8 ¾ in. side against the top of score pad, score 3 ½ in. from each side.

With 7 ½ in. side against the top of score pad, score 1 ¾ in. from each side.

Melissa has also provided a tutorial on her own brand new blog! Check it out here!







This is a card made out of the clear window sheets that are in our catalog. I loved this card too.







THis card reminded me of the string art projects my daughter used to make all the time. I thought it was so cool looking. That is the sweet pea designer paper in the back.



I thought this card was just gorgeous and very manly looking. It looks like cracked glass but she made it using scotch tape! If you look closely at the clock, you can see the little pieces of tape all over it and then you sponge it with creamy caramel on top. How cool is that. I will post the rest of Melissa's projects in a couple days. Please leave a comment and let Melissa know what you think.
