Creative Weekend

 

Captured My HeartHalloween 2013 Album

Baby Girl Mini AlbumDollar Card Kit

Don’t you just love having a weekend to create? This past weekend a group of ladies that I scrapbook with monthly had a crop that lasted all 3 days. It was a come and go kind of set up. But it was nice to be able to leave my things out and not have to worry about cleaning up.

I used Stampin’ Up! products as well as Non. I am trying to rid my stash of the things I had before I became a demo. I have come to the conclusion that I am a big time paper lover though and that won’t change any time soon. Hehe. Anyways, onwards to the pictures.

In the first picture Capture My Heart it was a paper kit that I had most likely picked up from Scrapbook Expo. I figured it was about time that I put this kit together. Since my anniversary is Valentine’s Day I am certain I will not have a problem finding pictures to complete this page.

I had a Halloween album that you could pick up from the Target dollar spot. I am not sure if they still do that as this was a few years back. I decided to use pictures from 2009 of my son participating in a school Harvest Festival. I used our newest Halloween Designer Series Paper. (Witches Brew DSP 132185 $10.95) And washi tape. (Witches Brew DSP Washi Tape 132156 $4.95)

I had a baby shower to go to so I made a baby girl mini album. A lot of the product I used was retired. It was a lot of fun to make and relaxing to me to make. I hope the Mom likes it! I think she did as the shower was last night and she seemed impressed with it.

Finally, I put some card kits together that I likely got from the dollar spot at Target or Michaels. Again, I don’t remember as it had been years since I had picked them up. In talking with the ladies in my group about these cards I thought of replicating them with Stampin’ Up! product. If I do I will be sure to share!

So what did you do this past weekend? Any Labor Day plans? If you’d like to go shopping right now for products you can do so here. Online Store Thank you for stopping by!

Luv 2 Stamp Quarterly Meeting

Yesterday we had our quarterly meeting and I thought I would share pictures of how our day went. We wanted to show Patty Bennett our up line how much we appreciated her and her recent promotion as Sr Executive. Wendy Cranford Katina Martinez and Cindee Wilkerson presented Patty with gift cards and a banner from all of us. Though the banner was done by Cindee. Its beautiful in person and she used one of the banner kits showcased in our Holiday catalog.

The next three pictures show the make and takes we did at the meeting. We made a Halloween treat bag. A Season Greeting card using the new chevron punch from the Holiday catalog. And the Joyful Tidings card is made with our new Thinlits.  You can get all these new products here. Online Store

The next set of pictures show the door prize I won yesterday as well as the immense talent our group has. The beautiful flowers you see done on the cards are by Lisa Rhine If you would love to be able to participate in a group like this I would love to tell you how! It is so much fun to converse with those that get you and your love for stamping and papercrafting.

Celebrations!

John's birthday cardTim and Nina's anniversary cardLuminary 2013

August has been a busy month for me! I had a nephew’s birthday, Relay for Life and my sister’s anniversary to celebrate. Along with end of the summer celebrating to do. As my kids will start school again this Wednesday the 21st.

Anyways, I wanted to share what I have been doing and creating even if I have not been posting.

My nephew just turned 17 and is a big Doctor Who fan so I wanted to do a element in that so hence the photobooth stamp I used from the set that we got in Salebration this year. It was from the Feeling Sentimental stamp set. Inside the little tag I had stamped Celebrate! which was also from the same stamp set. I had embossed his card with the Alphabet Press (130916) $7.95 I also used the Designer Series Paper Soho Subway (130140) $10.95

Before I became a Stampin’ Up! Demo I was a scrapbooker so I have a lot of paper stash and accessories.  For my sister’s anniversary card I used what I had and came up with a fast and simple card. Inside though the greeting was stamped with the Teeny Tiny Wishes Set (128748) W $36.95 (127802) C $26.95

For those of you familiar with Relay for Life you know it’s a big fundraiser and awareness relay that the American Cancer Association puts on. My family and I have been doing this for 2 years now. Unfortunaly, we had lost our Mom to Pancreatic Cancer on April 15, 2011. One of the things you can do is make a luminary bag that they will have lit during the luminary service around the track as that is where a relay usually takes place. I used a mix of Stampin’ Up! product and non. The flowers were punched with the Blossom punch. (125603) $16.95

I hope you enjoyed what I shared. I wanted you to encourage to use your stash whether its retired, non stampin’ up and the like. Better to make beautiful things than to hoard it for that special day that may never come. And the way I see it? You can always buy more! Hehe.

Thanks for stopping by! If you have any questions or in need of a catalog please let me know. I would love to help you out.
