It's Thursday blogger friends- more Open House pics.

This was one of the cards and envelope that Tammy made at my New Catalog Open House.  Do you recognize that this was from My Paper Pumpkin?  Tammy was the first of my customers to sign up for it.  I'm still trying to be able to post one more picture but my computer isn't letting me so I'll just say Happy Stamping!

It's Thursday, blogger friends

Hooray!!  The inside of the house is pretty much finished with what we've planned for this summer.
Carpet was put in the end of last week and I've been preparing(finally) for my new StampinUp catalog OPEN HOUSE.  I can't wait to show the new and exciting products that SU has to offer.
Here's the SPOOKY BANNER LOVE the way it turned out.  Will post more pics after the event.  Have some great classes planned for the fall and upcoming Holidays.  Check back. . . Happy Stamping!

This is the second half the the Celebrate banner.  Doesn't it look GREAT? More conventions shares to follow. Be sure to check back!  Happy Stamping!

Build A Banner Kits

Half of a Celebrate Banner that was shown at Convention.  I'm still having some problems with my computer so I will have to show the other half later-  No, I'm not doing this to keep you in suspense(lol)  More later- please bear with me and check back.  This kit can be found in the new Holiday Catalog  on pages 30 and 31.  The larger kit (133507) comes with image stencils which can be reused- Awesome.   I ordered the kit with the stencils first and wondered why I did that-  so ordered the complete kit the second time.  - Gives me extra pennants to use.

More "mini" book

Last page of the "mini" book done for convention friends.  Used a med envelope and cut it off just a "smidge" Used the 1/2" circle punch and made an opening in the middle of the top part of the envelope.  Makes a Nice little "pocket" for Convention receipts.  Used the wonderful Epic Washi Tape.  Love that stuff! I used the Modern Medley designer series paper for the front and back covers.   Hope you like it!   Happy Stamping!

Another week coming up.

This was the front of the little book I made for Blythe Klipple.  She always done a fantastic job organizing the SUDSOL swaps and this year was GREAT. There were 6 groups of 45 or so swappers.  Just wanted to give her a litle something.
I've been having some problem with the pictures I have downloaded and will have to see if I can figure out what is happening so this is the only one that I can show you at this time.  Must be those pesky" computer gremlins" again.  In the meantime, Happy Stamping!
Re downloaded my pictures and whola- got it to work. I'm not exactly sure what happened the first time but glad it is resolved.  This is the inside of the little book.  I used whisper white cardstock for the "Notes" page and then cut regular copy paper for 10 pages.  More to follow. . . hope you will check back.  Happy Stamping!

Happy Wednesday, blogger friends

Here are the "booklets" that I did for some of my friends at Convention.  They have a place for friends calling cards- I took a med. envelope and cut off one end and made a "notch" at the top .  An area for "Notes"  with just regular copy paper and a back "envelope pocket for receipts.  Used some Gumball Green, black and cobbler bias tape for the ribbon tied on the "jump rings. I used the Modern Medley designer paper and really liked the look of that DSP.  The Big
Shot was used to cut out the apothecary accents framelits for the "name tag".  Hope you like it.  Happy Stamping!

"Pop 'N' Cuts Card- seen at Convention

In between washing and painting walls and ceilings, I managed to put together a few cards and some of the "take & makes" from the fabulous 2013 SU Convention.  This card used the Pop 'n' Cuts die with the label insert.  After cutting the insert upside down I finally realized that maybe I should turn it around.  The die was cutting the "shelf" on the back of the pop up.   The inside of the card I saw when Karen Burniston was demonstrating and just loved it. I have encountered a technical problem but will get it solved(I hope) so that you will be able to see the inside of this card. After much  unloading and reloading the pictures, I finally got it to come through.  I used thin strips of green(Wasabi) I think CS and some sage burlap material that I had for the "grass" behind the moose.  Tore a strip of the same green for the front of the moose.  Used the Happy Birthday from the Perfectly Penned Stamp Set.  Sponged around the label pop-up with Soft Suede ink. The Happy Birthday is stamped on the label from the Apothecary Accent framelit.  Will try and get more posting done this week since I am just about finished with the painting.  Happy Stamping!
