Stampin Up! Convention-

Utah here I come! I am so ready and so excited! I have been working really hard this weekend trying to get my swaps ready. I have three 12 x 12 scrapbook page swaps with 20 pages in each swap- two of which Ms. Susan helped me out. Thank you so much Susan! I have a 3-D swap with 14 people and I have a card face swap with the SUDSOL group that has 75 folks. Then I have my general swaps. The construction world has been so slow the past year and it has given me time to work on my Stampin' Up business. God's blessings sometimes come in a place where you least expect it! I will post all of my wonderful swaps when I get the chance. You guys prayer for me if you will for a safe and fun trip. I will bring back lots of great ideas!!!

Puns from the Past

Good morning,
I just love Cherry Cobbler card stock. It seems like every time I go to pick out a color from my stash it is Cherry Cobbler. Love It!! I also love the retro feel of this card. I can remember my father and husband getting up every morning to drink a cup of coffee and read the morning paper before running off to work. My how times have changed with the internet.

Here is a card I have created using Stampin' Up! Cherry Cobbler card stock, DSP , Puns from the Past Stampset and embossing folding for the texture on the black card stock. This is for my upcoming basic card class on Thrusday. If you are interested in attending just send me an email.

Hi everyone!
Just wanted to say what a wonderful Open House I had today. I gave away 12 stampsets, we made a wonderful Christmas Card and everyone got their hands on the new catalog! WooHoo!!! We were in stamping heaven. Here is a  picture of the place before everyone arrived.

Here are some of the Awesome crafts which were on display-

This was done by one of my downline Susan.
Here is a wreath also brought in by Susan. Both of the above items are in our Decor Elements catalog.

I made this cute little mummy jar.

This cute little box was made using the Big Shot  and the Scallop Envelope Die. Cut out four of the envelopes and glue them together to make the box. Just add the note cards and the 3 x 3 envelopes from the catalog. How cute is that!!!

Finally look at this darling spider made with the corner punch and scallop circle punch! Cute!!!

Well this is all for now. I will show off the card we made for Make and Take tomorrow. Until then.....Happy Stamping.

Colors are Elegant Eggplant, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Rich Razzelberry. The stampset used are Circle Circus and Wonderful Favorites. If you need more information to recreat this great two page spread send me an email sandragrimes@tampabay.rr.com. Happy Scrapping!!!

July 1st is a great day. For Stampin' Up demonstrators, we start a whole new year, have a new Idea Book and catalog to create with and we look forward to our annual convention this month!

Speaking of NEW catalogs, have you seen it yet? Do you need one mailed to you? If you have ordered from me in the last 12 months, you get one free from me! They cost me $5 and $5 to mail them since they are 2 pounds, so just verify that you would like yours mailed to you by dropping me an email. Do me a favor and type in your mailing address so I can be sure I have it going to the right place!

If you haven't ordered from me in the last 12 months and would like a catalog, just fill out the contact form HERE to leave me your name and mailing info. I'll send you a Pay Pal invoice for $10 to cover my cost and mailing. Along with the Idea Book and Catalog, I'll send you a $10 coupon for a future purchase of $50. And where can you get a rubber stamping idea book with over 300 ideas for only $10?!
