Scrap Layout

I had my scrap club on LAST Thursday and meant to post it WAY before this. There is so much going on right now it's not even funny! I wanted to post last Friday. Oh well.

This was a fun one to do. What I loved most about this layout is the fact that it can be used for ANY sort of event. I took a very elegant layout and used it for a VERY goofy purpose! This is my favorite thing to scrap about! My family and their "faces." Well, that's all this time. I will try and come back by Sunday for another project idea!

Convention 2009!

Wow! That's how I sum up this year's Stampin' Up! Convention. I was honored to earn the award of Rising Star. I placed #9 and I am on Cloud Nine!

I have so much to share it's not even funny. The bad thing is: I also have lots to do this week. I have Scrap Club on Thursday, Stamp Club on Saturday and a class in between! Yikes!

This was my 3D swap for Convention this year. This luminary actually works; I even gave a tealight candle to everyone too! This was super fun and super simple to do, thanks to the Big Shot. It's the new Fancy Favor Big Shot Die. I also used the new Snowflake Punch! A little versamark, a little vellum card stock, and a little Iridescent Ice... viola! I did add a tag to my swap in the lower right hand corner that said, Let it snow! *giggles*

There is an actual tealight candle in this luminary. The box doesn't even get warm! It works perfectly.

Vacation project

While I was on "vacation" from club, we each brought a project for all of us to do. We ended up with 4 different projects! It was great! I loved to see how these ladies handled the situation! I am thinking of doing this every month with them!

Here's mine: I adapted it from a project I made a month or so ago! Believe it or not, the colors are Summer Sun, Tempting Turquoise and Whisper White. The stamp set used was SUPPOSED to be Medallion but I left it home. I used Circle Circus instead during the demonstration :(

I, of course, covered it up by saying, "See you too can be a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator!" The funny thing was, they all were demonstrators! They all signed under me :) So then I quickly thought and said, "Oh... and you all are already! Fabulous!" This project is so quick and fun! The gift card fits perfectly! You can change the paper, colors and more! It's awesome! Can't wait to do one for Christmas!

Jumping up and down!

Woo Hoo! I am so excited! I have a picture to post that is not what I had promised yesterday! My car is now decorated! A friend has started her own business. I am always willing to help out entrepreneurs!

Check this out!! Now, the 6 little images to the "left" are Stampin' Up! rub ons. I am sooooooooooooooooooooooo in love with this! Thanks Elise!

Now the family on the left - you will notice that the cats are separated. I was going to put the cats together but... If I did, it would look like one was sniffing the other one in a place that.... well... while it's completely natural... *giggles*... I will leave it at that!
