Reason to Smile Party

The Reason to Smile set is so fun to stamp with! I used that set to make the card, above!

I used a paper daisy on the card, above. Don't have paper daisies?? Punch out a scallop circle, snip in at each scallop, sponge on ink, and curl the edges with a bone folder. It makes a pretty flower, too!

This card, above, uses a technique called Triple Time Stamping. Layer all of the white pieces of card stock on top of each other, using a small amount of adhesive. Stamp the words and then the flowers. Separate the pieces of white card stock, and layer on the colored card stock. Quick, easy, and fun! I bet you have a flower set at home that you could do this technique with tonight!

This card was also a make-n-take. I'm loving the new Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack!

Happy Stamping!

Reason to Smile stamping party

Hello stampers!

You are invited to a Reason to Smile Stamping Party! You may have seen
the special for July. If you choose to order $50 in SU merchandise, you can get the
new Reason to Smile stamp set for just $5! At the party, we will do
some projects with that set, as well as some other fun projects. If you
are not able to attend but would like to place an order so you can get
the set, just send me your order on or before July 30th.

*I will demonstrate the card, above, and use a paper daisy.
What if you don't have a paper daisy? I'll show you another quick
and easy way to make a flower!

When: Monday, July 30th at 6:30pm
Where: Patrice's house
Cost: This is a free workshop!
RSVP by Sunday, July 29th
Hope to see you there!

You are also invited to find out more about being a SU demonstrator that
same night. At 5:45 on Monday, July 30th I will be sharing information
about being a SU demo: just to get the discount, as a way to make a
little extra money, or as a full-time career. There will be no pressure
to sign up if it turns out it's not right for you. But you'll leave
knowing why I LOVE being a SU demo! We'll do an extra make-n-take and
you will be able to ask any questions you may have. If you've ever
thought about it, this is a great opportunity to see if it's right for
you now, later, or never! Please RSVP by July 29th.

Happy stamping!

I am Creative class banner

I went to the I am Creative class at the Stampin' Up! convention. We made this fabulous banner. Each banner uses a different technique that a concept artist at SU showed during the class. I can't wait to make some more banners for Fall, Christmas, etc!

Happy Stamping!

Convention 2012

The Stampin' Up! Convention is fantastic again this year! I can't wait to show you the things I am learning!!! One of the classes I took at Convention 2012 is "I am Doing Business My Way". Bonnie Thurber from the home office lead the discussion between two SU demonstrators (Tami White and Ronda Wade) about different types of events they hold. I can't wait to try some of their ideas out and make stamping even more fun than ever!
Happy Stamping!
