Helping Orlando Teachers

At Leadership in Orlando, demonstrators stuffed 2,000 bags of Stampin' Up! supplies for 135 different schools and gave them to each school teacher.

Making A Difference

How Stampin' Up! has progressed in 25 years!!!!! I joined Stampin' Up! in 1996 under my sister, Rhonda, and have met so many new friends since that time.This will be my 17th year completed in June, 2013! I have been to all but one convention and have attended 3 Leaderships! What a great way to spend time with family and friends and still be able to laugh and have a business!

Lacey Valentine Card

I finally got to stamp yesterday! I helped my husband tear down a fence in the morning and then it was quiet in the afternoon and evening so decided to be creative and stamp a little! It was so nice! I was experimenting with the new fabric #129307 (More Amore Designer Fabric) and created this card!
I also used the $5.95 stamp that we could buy earlier and the new Artisan embellishment kit (#129328 for $9.95) found in the new Spring Mini. The lace is so beautiful and fun to work with! I also used Real Red, Vanilla, and Basic Black card stock. The embossing folder that was used was the Fancy Fan Folder (#127751) and the Hearts Collection Framelits (#125599)--no cutting except for the fabric!!!
Plan to attend the Stock Show today and take in the Stallion Row and Horse Sale!It is suppose to be in the low 50's today so should be a great day!!

Whale & Valentine

Good morning everyone! We woke up to snow again this morning and cold but no wind so that is great! I have ladies coming this morning for a My Digital Studio Class so will be a good day! These cards are from the Leadership board and again cute as can be! The bottom card is a very simple card yet so nice with the added glitter and scallop punches.Also, the Hearts a Flutter framelits and stamp set were used. Hope you have a great day!

Whale Scrapbook Page

We made this scrapbook page in club this month using Sunshine & Sprinkles Designer Series Paper (#126922) Melon Mambo, Pacific Point, Whisper White and Daffodil Delight card stock. We also just had to use the cute Oh, Whale stamp set (#129132) along with the Clearlits Die (#129403) and the new embossing folder (Cloudy Day #127022). I did not adhesive these as they can then move the Melon Mambo card stock around for their pictures and can also move the whale around after pictures are on.
We made this card with the new Secret Garden Bundle (#131099) as it is more reasonable to buy the bundle than the stamp set and framelits separately. The framelits are such a time saving device-no more cutting around an object. "Thanks So Much" is from the Oh, Hello stamp set and also added some Starfruit ribbon and a dahlia. The Designer Paper is from the new Print Poetry DSP Stack where you can get 48 sheets of 4 1/2 x 6 1/2 papers for only $6.95 (#129312). We also paper pierced around the white card stock and added a little accent color with the scalloped edge.
I hope you are having a great weekend. My daughter is coming down to visit us today so looking forward to a great day! Last night we went out to eat and our great friends, Archie and Shirley, walked in so we had a great visit dining and visiting with them. Looking forward to another My Digital Studio class tomorrow!!!
