stampin up quilting

A Day with Susan!

Every year when I go to Founder's Circle I get to spend a day with my friend Susan Adams and several other girls. It is always such a treat because Susan is such an amazing stamper and quilter. She has her own quilting machine! Her stamp room is incredible. I wish I could just move in with her. You can literally stay all day and not see everything. 



This is one of the many displays she has out. I loved this Christmas stocking banner. She made it with the Big Shot stocking die and felt material. You can either sew the edges or use a hot glue gun. Then hang it from a piece of our striped grosgrain ribbon.



Here is a close up of one of the stockings. The alphabet is also a set of Big Shot dies. Sprinkle a little glitter on top to make it sparkle.




This version is made out of cardstock. Same basic concept just with paper instead of the fabric. No sewing involved! These are attached to the ribbon using twist ties. How clever!





This one is a placemat that Susan decorated using our Stampin Up Holly Berry Bouquet fabric found on pg  22 in the Holiday mini.


Founder’s Circle

I just returned from Founder’s Circle and it was sooooo much fun! I love seeing all of my friends from all over the US and Canada. We had a nice relaxing week. I spent a lot of time stamping at my friend Susan Adam’s house (she lives in St. George) so I thought I would share some of those pictures first. Susan has this awesome stamping cottage next to her house. We were all drooling over how nice it would be to have one ourselves. I did take pictures of our gifts and things but many of them are top secret and cannot be shared until the Occasions mini comes out so I will share some other things now.

Here are my friends Cindy Peterson, Kimberly Van Diepen and Jackie Bolhuis. We were all making some really cool projects which I will be sharing in the next several days.




Here are Cindy, Cheryl Flynn, and Leasa Williams










This is Christie Daugherty and April Roycroft. April’s sweet little baby slept the whole day! She has a different little headband to go with every outfit. They were so cute.








This is my friend Georgia Giguere holding some of the flower pins we made at Susan’s house using the Big Shot. I learned so many cool things to do with fabric and the Big Shot, it was amazing.







Here is a close-up of the flower pins. They are just gorgeous.








This is one of the quilts that Susan made using the Big Shot. You can punch out so many cool shapes and then just sew them on.












Here is another quilt that is just gorgeous. This one used the scalloped oval die to frame all of her pictures and the Decorative Accents and Decorative Accent #2 for the swirls. How cool is that??? I think I might have to take up quilting now!
