Sweet Friend

This was one of our Charlotte, NC regional make and takes.  I LOVE it.  This is a sneak peek using a new stamp set from the Holiday Mini Catalog.  I also love the grid.  This is a stamp that I have never looked twice at before but now I LOVE it.  The best part is it is only $9.95.

Be sure to check back tomorrow for the other make and take we made using the same set to create a completely different card.

Parkinson's Walk in Washington D.C.

A year ago one of my uncles was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease.  This year some family and friends have made a team to walk in the Moving Day Walk for Parkinson's on October 16th in Washington D.C.  They are raising money for a great cause and I volunteered to do the thank you notes for everyone who was kind enough to give a little.  This is now the ribbon color for Parkinson's.  It is so cheerful.  I made these cards very simple since I will be making a lot of them.  I used Stampin' Ups! ready made note card with envelope set (comes with 20 in a set) and stamped my images in Tempting Turquoise.

Charlotte, NC Stampin' Up! Regional

We had a challenge to make our creative journal and then they gave us the journal!  We also got some supplies to make some other things they showed us.  I can't wait to create.

 This is a picture of me and three of my Creative Escape Artist Girls.  We got shirts made with our logo and we wanted to show them off. 

Here are 9 out of our 11 with Shelli!  Something said was obviously very funny seeing as I am catching LOTS of flies.  Hopefully someone else in our group got a better picture.

Our group again!

This was a great event as all Stampin' Up! events are!  We had a great time, stamped and learned some new things to do with products as well as new project ideas.  It was a FUN time.

Happy Birthday with a Fold

This is a card we made at my group meeting a little while back.  The square of DSP is 4"x4".  I showed pictures how to fold it.  This card was inspired by a similar swap card I received a while back from another demonstrator.  I used Island Indigo and Real Red.

Wedding Invitation Swap

This is a wedding invitation I made for a wedding invitation swap.  I used Calypso Coral and Blushing Bride. I realized later that I did not get a picture of the inside but it is a layer of Blushing Bride with invitation on top.  The band is a belly band that just slides off.  I used these colors because my brother is getting married next summer and he and his bride to be have picked these colors for their wedding.  We will be making their wedding invitations and this will also be a sample to show them.  I can't wait to receive my swap back so I can share them with you.

Mini Milk Carton with a Twist

I needed little favors for an up coming workshop and I saw the Mini Milk Carton die and decided to make a favor box!  This is actually original!  I don't do that very often but I have not seen it done anywhere. I cut the card stock and then wheeled it with one of my jumbo wheels.   I glued one side, added candy and then just folded the other side in and added ribbon to close it.  This way, once you take the ribbon off, one side will open.

Check back this afternoon

Be sure to check back this afternoon.  I will be posting pictures of the Scrapbooking Luau where I will be a vendor today.  It is a fundraiser for our local MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) group.  There will be 85 ladies in attendance this year and they are in for a full day of stamping, scrapping or anything else they may want to work on!  I am looking forward to it.

Pony Party Birthday

This is Lorin's stamping again.  She did these during our stamping time the other day.  She made these for her Great Grandmothers.  Both of them have birthdays in August.  She told me what to stamp and she had a ball coloring them in.  We made the clouds using the Cupcake punch and the Crimper tool.

Pool Party Meets Nature Walk

This was another card we did at our group meeting last Saturday.  I love the combination of Pool Party and Crumb Cake.  I love the addition of the ruffled ribbon.  This is my favorite ribbon right now.  We made these to put in the pass out packets we put together.

Wheeled Birthday

This is a card that I was thinking of doing at a workshop but I changed my mind.  It is a wheeled birthday card.  I used Chocolate Chip and Calypso Coral.  I colored in some of the wheel with my Calypso Coral marker.  I also used my Art Air gun to splatter some Chocolate Chip on the top of the card.
