Convention Make & Takes 3

Love this little bag.  I just think it is so cute.  It uses the Tag a Bag Bundle
& Tag It Stamp Set w 130300.
 This is the Ronald McDonald House Charities set.  For every set sold Stampin' Up! will donate $3 to the Ronald McDonald House Charities.  Ronald himself showed up at convention this year and I was very moved by stories that he shared.  Therefore I will be offering a
  Tag It Stamp Camp 
Wednesday August 7th at 7pm and Saturday August 10th at 10 am.  
The same class will be offered each day.
The cost for the class will be $30 and will include the Tag It stamp set and we will make several projects with it.  
If you would like to attend contact me today to save your spot.

Convention M&T 1

Convention was AMAZING!  Loved it!  I am still soaking everything in. Well Tiffani and I were having so much fun that we didn't get our make and takes done at convention.  So I took a little time to start putting them together.  With kids and all I am of course not finished.  HA!  That is so life.  

Here is the first make & take.  A card made using the Gorgeous Grunge w130514 (A must have)
 Both great sets with a lot of fun elements.  

I am working on some fun classes coming up.  I will have a birthday banner class in August and a Tag It stamp camp also.  

Thanks for looking and Happy Stampin'!

Medallion Notebook

This morning while I listed to a recording of the Stampin' Up Convention 2013 Webinar I made this cute little notebook to take notes in while at convention.

I somewhat CASEd this from the new catalog.  If you have not received one and don't have another demonstrator let me know and I will get you a catalog.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Daydream Medallions stamps set (w131976 c 126467).  It is so fun to layer.  I wish I would have bought it in wood though since I use it so much.  I also love the new in colors.  Here I used Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe and Baked Brown Sugar.  Check out the fun new Ruffle Stretch Trim in the new in colors also.  So fun!  LOVE IT!  If you would like to purchase a share of the new trim you get 5 yards.  One of each of the 5 new in colors: Baked Brown Sugar, Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding & Strawberry Slush it is only $5.25 per share.  That does not include shipping.

Thanks for looking and have a great weekend.

Convention Swap

I have the hardest time coming up with convention swap cards.  I usually made a full card, but noticed that most people just do the front.  So this year I got smart and just made card fronts.  I wanted to use the new in colors and this is what I came up with.
Double embossing is super fun and looks fabulous.  I inked my chevron texture embossing folder with versamark and then put my paper in and ran it through the big shot.  As soon as it was through I added a little Iridescent Ice Embossing Power and heat set it.  And there you have it a beautiful background.  

My little buttons are made with the new Simply Pressed Clay 130685 and the Buttons & Blooms Simply Pressed Clay Molds 131272.  If you pop them in the freezer for a second with the clay in the mold they come out so much easier.  Or if your mold has been in the freezer for a bit they are easier to get out in one piece also without ruining your image.
Thanks for lookin' and Happy Stampin'!

Happy Happy!

I love it when my kids get involved in stampin'.  It is always so fun.  We were looking for a little boy card but I didn't have any and I had this retired DSP so we decided to use it up.  My daughter and son helped me to whip out these cards.
With a real simple design mass production is easy.  I love always having a few cards on hand for when I am in a rush and need one right away.  

Thanks for looking and Happy Stampin'!

Miss you...

For todays Mojo Monday I decided to combine Chalk Talk w 130631 with Really Good Greeting w 130330 and a little Epic Day This & That DSP 130814.  This year at convention we are trying to send off the most cards from one location at one time.  This is the card I made for that.

As much as I love convention the one thing that is a downer is not having my hubby there each night with me.  Love ya, Adam!

Happy stampin'!
