Convention 2009

Oh my goodness is about all I can say. I am back from Stampin Up! convention in Salt Lake City. I had an AWESOME time and I can't wait for next year. I am working on getting some posts ready with not only some of the items I swapped, but items I received in swaps. I will work on that in the next day or so and get them up here. By looking at the photo below you can tell I had a GREAT TIME! These are some of my Stampin Addicts Sisters....for more great pics of Convention, visit Stampin Addicts. If you are not already a member, join! It is a fun group of women (and men) and it is 100% Positive and Postively Stampin Up!
And here I am with Shelli Gardner, co-founder of Stampin Up! She is such a "real person" to talk to. She could tell I was nervous and just said to breathe!

In the meantime, if you are interested in hosting a workshop and receiving some extra hostess benefits, please contact me. There will be a special incentive for the first 2 people to book and hold the workshop! (Think free goodies!)

School starts next week so I am sure everyone is getting finished up with their summer plans. I will start the regular craft nights once I get back into the school groove!

Have a great week....check back soon for the updates!

Urban Oasis Card Fest

Have you ever bought a package of Designer Series Paper because you like one or two pieces of paper? I have! Then you have to wonder what you are going to do with the rest of it. Well, what you do is step out of your comfort zone and make some cards!

So here is what we have....these two cards are the same, only different. They use the same piece of paper, but from a different "section" of the page. I also had to step outside of my comfort zone and use some of the soon to retire Kiwi Kiss cardstock. This card is also a 5 inche square card. It is a size I like, but seldom make.

So here is another card, and I even decorated the inside! Like I said earlier, I was trying to use up all the scraps too! This one is made into a birthday card, but there is still a little bit of room on the inside to even write a hand-written note.

Kiwi Kiss is not one of my favorite colors, so I had to change up the color of the card! I used some of my beloved Baja Breeze, and this is using pieces of the same paper used above, but this time parts without the green leaves. I added some Baja double stitched ribbon and some of the Gray Tafetta ribbon as well. The card in front has the medallion embossed in clear.

This is the last card I made using the same paper. I needed a card to send to a friend just to let her know I was thinking of her, and I thought this was a cute and quick card to make. I matted the scrap of paper on Pink Pirouette and then again on Basic Gray, wrapped some Pink Pirouette ribbon around it, and wah-lah!!
