Cupcake card

This cupcake image is from a new hostess set in the 2009-10 Stampin' Up! Catalog & Idea Book called: "The More the Merrier". Stamp the row of cupcakes a few times to fill up your cardstock piece with lots of cupcakes, YUM! Of course you need a little Dazzling Diamond Glitter to finish it off!
This card shows the new inline colors for this catalog year, and these inline colors also come in the markers now too and they match the Razzleberry Lemonade designer paper used for the quilt block square type of design. The polka dotted ribbon is also a coordinating product in the Rich Razzleberry color.

"Girly" card and favor

The big shot die: large Scallop circle is used to make this adorable dress cut out. Once you have the fun dress you can make a card or a party favor. I used the Box #2 die for the party favor by making the box but leaving the flap up.

SO Sweet scrapbook page

Here is a fun sample using the Circle Circus (new Stampin' Up! stamp set)and the Big Flower Sizzix die for a scrapbook page layout. The word "so" is a "s" from the Serif Die in the Big Shot machine. The "o" is the large circle design from "Circle Circus" embossed with VersaMark and Clear embossing powder and punched out with the 1 3/4 circle punch from Stampin' Up!. The center of the flowers are also embossed images from the "Circle Circus" set and punched out with the 1 3/8 inch circle punch. This layout shows the new in-line colors for 2009-10 in the Stampin' Up! Catalog & Idea Book. Designer paper is: Razzleberry Lemonade.

Bag full of swap goodies!

Swapping at convention is always fun and I seem to get the best swaps when swapping with friends and having a planned and organized swap. This year we will be meeting in our hotel room again with 25 swappers consisting of my roomies from Nebraska and Colorado and downline groups of stamp friends Deb Valder, New York and Sue Hyer of Virginia. Here is a sneak peak of their swapping bags. All bags are set up in a circle and one of each item is placed into each swappers bag, once everyone has had a chance to place their items in the bags then each gal has a wonderful bag full of goodies to take home with them.....well that is after we eat pizza! :-) This is a fun way to get great quality swaps and have fun meeting stampers from around the country. Once I get home I'll share my pics of the swaps I received.

It's Time for Stamp CONVENTION!!!

Here are some pics from past convention. I can honestly say that I signed up to be a Stampin' Up! Demo in the fall of 1996 knowing that the convention was held in Las Vegas that coming summer. Since then I have been to every convention and have traveled to San Diego, Minneapolis, Orlando, Kansas City and Las Vegas and Salt Lake City both numerous times. Convention is always so much fun. 4-5 days of stampin' fun with other stamp crazed ladies (and a few men demostrators). Here's a few pics from past conventions in Salt Lake.

The top photo I am with Jennifer Thomas, another stamp demo with the same name! The other photos are my roommates and I either hanging out in our hotel suite or eating out!

Convention this summer is in Salt Lake City Aug. 5-8.
I'll post pictures of my swap cards later this week.
Have a great rest of the summer!
