Stamping Friends…..


Stamping friends are the best and these girls are super fun. This is an 8 1/2 x 11 scrapbook page that I made for one of my convention displays when I was demonstrating the distressing kit.  I distressed the top piece of designer paper using the sanding block. I used the Tickets and Tags Scrappin' Kit found on pg189 for this layout.  The pics are from Leadership this past January in Nashville. We had such a great time.


More from Leadership….


Here are a few pictures of the display boards that I really liked. THe first one is a gorgeous scrapbook page of Shelli (founder of Stampin Up) and her husband Sterling. It uses my new favorite stamp set Nature's Walk from the Occasions mini. I think anything Shelli makes is simply gorgeous. She does a lot of vintage type stamping which is my favorite.



This one is the American flag made out of our new vintage flower adornments also found in the Stampin Up occasions mini on pg 15. You get 24 of them for only $5.95 and they come in rose red, baja breeze and vanilla. They totally make a card extra special.




This one I thought was so clever. They used our butterfly embosslit from the big catalog and punched them out of all different papers and made a shadow box type display with them. No actual  butterflies were harmed in making this project even though they do look real!




This is a cute card that my friend Cindy got as a swap. I am not sure who made it. I was just taking pics of my favorite cards in her stash. This one was made using the new cupcake set and punch in the Occasions mini. The swaps this year were super. I was very happy with the ones I received and I will be posting some of them soon.



Here are me and my roommate (and downline) Debbie. This was at the Irish Pub on our last night. We had a great time but it just went by so fast. The best part of all these Stampin Up events is spending time with all my friends. I miss them all so much when we have to go home. 


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.

Just Beachy scrapbook page


 Here is a quick and easy scrapbook page that my wonderful downline, Sandy Alexander created. For those of you that know me well, I do not really scrapbook very often, so I am always glad when some of my downline have scrappin’ classes so I can go make them or I would never get them done. This page was done using the Just Beachy set from the Occasions mini. This set would be perfect for all of your summer vacation scrapbook pages.
