A Better Picture of 3-D Flowers



Here is the actual project I will be teaching at my 3-D Flower Class in July. We will be embellishing a mini-paint can. Not SU, but fun anyway - realistically I just couldn't burn 8-10 Yankee Candles within the next few weeks anyway. But I will be raffling off the Embellished Candle Jar at the class!

Portfolio Class



Thank you to everyone who came to my Portfolio Class on Saturday. I had a great time meeting new people, and showing them how to create this awesome gusseted envelope with matching cards, checkbook cover, calendar and note pads. Hope you all enjoyed it as much as I did.

Today I will start creating samples for August's Halloween Big Shot Class...can you believe I'm thinking Halloween already??

More Preview


Preview of the new Idea Book and Catalog




My new catalog and pre-order arrived just in time for the weekend, and I couldn't wait to start playing with the new ink and stamps! These samples were made as teacher gifts for the end of the year (I can hardly believe tomorrow is Emma's last day in school!).

The new colors used were: Marina Mist and Cherry Cobbler. I think the Cherry Cobbler teamed up with Crumbcake (formerly Kraft) and Very Vanilla will be my new favorite color combination. Doesn't it look great?

The new stamps used are: Friends Never Fade, Because I Care, and Cute By the Inch!

Thanks for stopping by!

Big Shot Felt Bag



I recently got a new cell phone and wanted to protect the screen from scratches. Here is what I came up with. This uses the Top Note die, crochet thread, Bitty Buttons and Scallop Circle Die. I typically don't undertake projects that involve sewing of any kind, but this was easy peasy!

Cupcakes Class




Today we made cupcakes at Life's Memories and More. This was a version of the cupcake class I posted in April, but I added a 3-D cupcake - inspired by the Stampin' Success cover from last month.

I met some wonderful new people, a current SU Demonstrator and one retired Demo. I really enjoyed the morning-hope they did too!

I Cased the Mini




I used the cover of the current Stampin' Up! Mini-Catalog as inspiration for this card. I love the look of the flowers stamped on the butterflies, when I first saw it I wondered why I had never thought of doing that? Isn't it cute? I changed it up a bit to make it more mine, and of course made it into an easel. I love these easel cards!
