Friends 24-7 set

More convention swaps!

 Here are some more swaps from our Stampin Up convention. These were some of my favorites that my roomie Terri got. I still haven’t even taken pictures of the ones that I got! Life is just too hectic sometimes. Trying to catch up after being gone for a week is hard. Hopefully I will get some stamping time in later this week.

Beautiful Butterflies!


This is one of the cards I am doing in my clubs this month. I am soooooo going to miss this Parisian Breeze DSP. It is my FAVORITE one! It has my favorite color combos all rolled into one. I hope one day they bring this baja breeze back.  It goes so well with chocolate chip.  This is a super easy card I made with our exclusive Stampin Up Beautiful Butterflies big shot die. It is so easy to add that extra touch with these butterflies (and no cutting is needed!).

More samples from display boards

Here are a few more samples from the display boards in Hawaii….I got lots of ideas from all the great cards! Hope you enjoy these….


This is made with the Fifth Avenue Floral set and the Great Friend set from the Occasions mini.













Here is a beautiful Easter card made with the Thoughts and Prayers set.









Love this card! It is made with the Friends 24-7 set, Parisian Breeze paper and our new corduroy buttons.


One more gift….


Here is one more of Melissa’s gifts.This one was made by my friend Colleen. It is basically a larger card and she put in a swirly frame….very pretty.  The set on here is one of my new favorites…Friends 24-7.


March stamp camp projects!


Hey everyone,

Here are pics of what we are doing this month at stamp camp. We are making the bird house box and 4 beautiful cards to go inside (I tried to fit all 4 in the picture but it was too crowded). Classes are Sunday the 15th at 1 and 3:30 and Monday the 16th at 7pm. If you sign up by this Friday you will get $5 off the stamp camp fee of $25. That includes all of your supplies, door prizes and refreshments. Please email me at  if you would like to come.





Pretty butterfly card


This is a card I am doing in all of my March classes. My friend Colleen gave this to me and I just loved it. The background is Bella Toile, the butterfly is from Simple Friendship and the saying is from Thoughts and Prayers but many other sayings will work with this punch. Elegant Cheer is a great one to use. I love the vanilla hodgepodge hardware too.


Pocket Silhouettes


I saw this flower pot idea somewhere a couple of weeks ago. I can’t remember where though. It is so cool…you just take the round tab punch, cut it in half and then trim the rounded edge so it is straight. It looks just like a flower pot. I used the stem silhouettes set and Friends 24-7 for the saying. The paper is baja breeze, pink pirouette, not quite navy and urban garden dsp. The ribbon is our new organza/satin mix. It is luscious! This is one of the cards I am doing in my clubs all month.


Another surprise in the mail


I just love getting cards in the mail. THis one is from my upline Jill Olsen. She sends out cards each month to the top girls in her downline and I am always so excited when I get one of them. This wheel is from my very favorite new set Friends 24-7. Thanks Jill! You made my day!


DCBD challenge #13


This week was a design challenge…. I like those much better than the color challenges so hopefully you will like what I came up with.

Here is our challenge sketch…..










and here is what I came up with….

For this week’s challenge, I decided to use a set I just got a couple of days ago. It is one of my new favorite sets! It is called Friends 24-7. I used the new circle cutter (and thanks to whoever suggested putting the rubber feet on it…it works like a charm now). I stamped everything in chocolate chip and I used the new Bella Bleu DSP paper. Isn’t it gorgeous? Anything in our catalog that has the word Bella in it is automatically on my wish list. I also used our new eyelet border punch.  I hope you like it as much as I do. Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think! Also, don’t forget to check out all of the other diva’s designs by clicking on their names under the coffee cups in my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by.
