Thank you to everyone
(customers, demonstrators, etc) I won a trip to the Caribbean next May!! This has been a goal of mine since I started Stampin' Up! 17 years ago. I just completed my 17 years with Stampin' Up! on June 17th. What a great trip! I had won a cruise to Alaska with a drawing but this one I made with sales, downlines, etc.!!!! Thank you to everyone who helped me with this trip! I am so excited!!!!

Painted Ribbon Rack

Where do the days go?
The month of June is almost gone and I am wondering what I got accomplished during this month. Looking back at some pictures I decided I did get some things done. I repainted my ribbon bars from black to white as I just painted my craft room and cleaned carpet. Now I am in the middle of filling my paper racks back up. I love these racks! I have all of the card stock in and now just need to get the Designer Series Paper in the racks. It just takes a lot of time to sort through everything! Hopefully, the furniture will arrive soon and I will get this room back together again. Hope you have a great day! We are in hayfield so I am spending lots of time playing the gopher.

Just finished
with shares of ribbon, dsp, and embellishments. What fun to see all of the new items in our new catalog. All of the shares are sent off but was fun to see everything! Just finished with our recipe books and they turned out great! That was a huge project but fun! Stampin' Up! worked with us so much as it was a huge order and kept me informed of progress!!! Great company to be in! Now I am off and running to get my stamp room in order! The furniture hasn't arrived yet but painting is done and rugs are cleaned. Now the worst part is sorting through things! Yikes!!! Items accumulate so fast! I will try and post some pictures as it progresses!

Gift Holder

We made
this gift card holder at our June club with Tempting Turquoise and Daffodil card stock. The bow was made with 2 oval framelits (I think it was the second smallest one) and then run through the big shot with the Honeycomb impression folder.  Score on the lines and adhesive together. I also used the large (2 of them) for the main card.

Wildflower Meadow

We had fun making this at our June club with the Wildflower Meadow Embossing Folder and the new Vintage Buttons. I cut a piece of white card stock in half and then cut 3 pieces of card stock 1 1/4 x 5 and layered it on a piece of white card stock 3 3/4 x 5. Add some ribbon, button, and Bakers Twine. You can also add a saying with a flower and brad. Easy to make!!

Embossed Butterfly

These are 2 of the cards we made at club with the Swallowtail stamp. We stamped the butterfly with embossing pad and then added embossing powder. We put white powder on the pool party card stock and pool party embossing powder on the white card stock. Heat with the heat gun and then cut each piece of 4 x 5 1/4 piece of card stock in half in center of butterfly. Then put a 2 x 4 piece of card stock in back in middle to hold butterfly together. Add to card with dimensions or adhesive. Be sure to get a lot of dimensions in the middle so butterfly will stick good to card stock. I tried this in other colors and it is beautiful!!! I cased this idea from Dawn's stamping thoughts!!!
