More Ideas

This is a very cute box that was made with the black and white striped ribbon and cute little flower stamp set.

Another cute tag made for the Sour Cream Container and using some more cool buttons! Great gift ideas! Remember, June 30th is the last day to order from the 2010-11 Catalog. You can begin ordering from the new catalog on July 1st. Last night I sent in my Photo Album on our Cruise, cards and some other small projects--gotta love that MDS! Thank you to Michelle Tech's video for helping me learn how to print a card at home! Thanks Michelle! Had a great night at MDS Class last night with printing and downloads! So much to learn!!! Have a great day as the sun is shining this morning..

Skagway Alaska

This is another page I made from my Alaskan Cruise (3 pages to go and I am done!) It has been a fun book to create! This book was easier after I got a few verbal tips from Heather Summers--she is fantastic! One great tip is to work from the bottom up and it made it so much easier. Also, check out the many layouts that have already been created for you in many different magazines or just layouts. Great tips!! I used Crumb Cake cs and then put a Vintage Overlay over it along with the Opacity Button. I also used the Chocolate Chip DSP, First Edition DSP, and Real Red and So Saffron DSP. The writing is Free Style Script and some of the images are from In A Word and the clock is from Timeless.
It is not raining today but there needs to be a lot of sunshine before I can mow again! So one more day inside to finish up my Book and some of my projects and to get ready for tonight's MDS Class. I learned how to print a card at home and will be sharing that tonight along with sending in a project to Stampin' Up! to be printed. Have a great day and do something fun!!

More MDS

This is a couple of pages I have been working on to put in my Alaskan Cruise Photobook. I hope to finish it this week and send it off to SU to print. I am on about page 20 so hopefully will get it sent off. I have enjoyed using the Travel Log Background DSP! What fun!!! Lots of cute little embellishments.
We got about an inch of rain again today so we are very wet and green! I thought I would get caught up on a lot of cards today as I couldnt work outside but ended up mending horse blankets, washing, and mending shirts! I also made some customers happy today as they got their new catalogs! So fun! Have a great evening and enjoy the green, green grass and country!!!

Button Buddies

Cute cards from the new stamp set Button Buddies that will be coming out in the new Idea Book on July 1st.

There are 8 different images that you will be able to use a Designer Button with! Just love the pig!!!! Yesterday was a busy day-I took my dad to visit his brother and we spent the day having lunch and looking at the beautiful countryside. I think we were both exhausted when we got home! Have a great day and this day seems to be filling up fast!!!

Trading Post Cards

Check out this Bookmark made with the new Timeless Portrait Designer Fabric! That was one of my favorite projects!

Another project-what could be yummier than an ice cream cone made with the new stamp set in July called "Pennant Parade" What a fun stamp set and then the new punch ! Wow! Stampin' Up outdid themselves in this year's catalog! We had a fantastic night last night at my MDS class and boy did we ever cover a lot of ground! So fun and the MDS is such a great program. If you would like to order the MDS just go to my ONLINE STORE (tab on the right sidebar)! It is a fantastic program if you like to scrapbook and make cards. Every Tuesday SU has been coming out with new downloads! Enjoy your day!

Dining on the Cruise

This is one of my table mates for our Cruise, Heather Summers! She is a fantastic person and so very positive! We really enjoyed having her and Mark at our table.

This is my husband, Bud, and I enjoying a meal at the Trellis Restaurant on our Cruise. The food was always so good and challenging to choose among so many items. Hope you have a great day! Now that the weedwacking is all done I may start in mowing again although we got another half inch last night. So much moisture!!! I am still working on my photo album of the Cruise. I hope to get it finished this week. I am having some MDS classes this month so be sure and check my SU website for all of my classes and also at the end of the month for my Stamp-A-Stack. Have fun!

Bliss Scrapbook Page & Quail

This is the scrapbook page our club did this month using the Fun Flowers Die and the Large Scallop Die along with Garden Green and Navy card stock. A fun page to make.

This is one of our menus from Cruise where I got brave and ordered Quail. Actually, it was very good and tasted much like chicken.

This is the awesome bag we received at Convention from Stampin' Up! I used it everyday on the Cruise-so light and nice! A very special gift! I'm off to tear out a fence and then to deliver SU and pick up prizes for our Futurities! Have a great day! Kind of dreary here as it cant decide to rain or not!

This is a picture of the Stealth Bomber that went over our house last Saturday as they were having the Air Show at Ellsworth Air Force Base. The first time it went over our house it seemed like it was right over our head and the second time it was further in the air! It was really neat to see so close!

This card we made at Erika's stamping stack class and then I made it one of my clubs this week. So cute but quick and easy with the new White Cord.

This card we used the clear embossing powder and the versa mark on the butterflies. I used the Neutrals Designer Buttons, Flower Fest stamp set, Rich Razzleberry, Crumb Cake, Basic Gray, and Foft Suede Card Stock. All of these supplies can be ordered on my Online Store. Just click the button on the sidebar and it will take you directly to the Online Store and then the products will be delivered directly to your door! How easy is that? Hope you have a great evening!!!

50th Anniversary Cards

This is a couple of 50th Anniversary Cards I made this last weekend for friends. I used the Fun Flower Die Cut with gold metallic card stock and put an antique brad in each one. On the top card I used gold cord and on the bottom card I used white ribbon.

I also embossed both of the cards using different embossing folders. I hope you are having a great day! I am actually having a very progressive day-got my weed wacking done in the tree patches and my flyers are ready for my MDS class and Stamp A Stack Class. Be watching for these!

Trading Post Cards

These are 3 more cards that were on display in the Trading Post on the Cruise!

The demonstrator used "Travel Log" stamp set on this card. The spiral punch is retiring the end of June.

This card would be great for Father's Day using the "Best Dad Ever" stamp set and neutral colors for the front of the card. I am having Club today so it has been a busy and hot day! Enjoy the sunshine!!!

Cards from the Cruise & Whale Watching

This picture I got one afternoon on the cruise when Bud & I were Whale Watching! I finally got a picture when it was spouting! They were way cool! That afternoon we got to see quite a few but was hard to watch and get pictures as it happens so fast!

This card was made with the stamp set "Sail Away" and was on the display board in the SU Trading Post.

This card used "The Open Sea" stamp set and was also on the display boards.

Hope you had a great day! A lot of activity going on at our house today! I did get all of my pictures edited tonight and ready for club tomorrow.

Beautiful Flowers in Victoria

This is another card that I took a picture of in the Stampin' Up! Trading Post--Love those punches!!!

After we landed in Victoria, Bud and I took off walking for about 3 miles and walked into a beautiful garden that Rhonda and her husband had told us about! The flowers were just gorgeous! It wasnt the main garden in Victoria but was a City Park!

Here is another bunch of flowers in the same park!

This picture was taken of a neighborhood yard! The yards were just full of beautiful flowers! We are on our way to two 50th Anniversary Parties tonight! Have a great evening!!

More Alaska Pictures

Here are a few more pictures from our Alaskan Cruise. I got this plane just as it was coming in for landing on the water.

This picture was taken up on the White Pass while we were on our train ride.

Spent most of the day outside again mowing, planting more trees, and pulling weeds. I did get to make a couple of graduation cards so now I am caught up on my cards except for a bunch of thank you cards to make. Last night I attended a Stamp-A-Stack from my downlines and they did a fabulous job especially for their very first class! Congratulations Erika and Kathleen!
