Sympathy Card

This is one of the cards that we made at my Stamp-a-stack class.  I saw a card very similar on Stampin Connection (a Stampin' Up only website).  This is the website with the card made in a different color and different sketch, but it's where I got the idea.  I loved how it turned out.  

Thanks Toni for letting me borrow your die to cut the 3" circle.  I have your card to give you!

New Paisley Print Paper and Four Frame Stamp Set

In a previous post here I posted how you can purchase this Paisley Print Paper now.  This is a piece of the paper and a stamp from the stamp set that will be in the new 2011-2012 IB&C.  For one month (April)  Stampin' Up! is letting customers pre-purchase this paper and stamp set (with a $20 qualifying order) before it comes out.  Isn't that great!!   The paper is absolutely gorgeous!!  I know I ordered several packs of this paper and am using it on everything!!  If you would like to purchase this paper, just send me an email and I will be able to help you out!

Photo Holder

I ordered some new items from the Stampin' Up! new mini catalog.  As demonstrators, we are able to pre-purchase items so that we can prepare classes and such for the mini catalog.  I used the new Simply Scrapping Kit to make this cute photo holder.  I am thinking about having a class on this project.  Not alot of embellishments so that I can show off the pictures.  

Here is a look at the inside of the photo holder.  These are old family photos, but it is what I had when making this.  I liked how it turned out. 

I also made this one for a friend of mine who is having a cowgirl theme birthday party for her daughter.  I don't have pictures in it because she will be taking pictures at the party and then putting the pictures on after the party to give as Thank You Notes to the guest.

Here is a look at the inside.  The Thank You note will be in the middle and she will be able to put 4 pictures inside.  She liked how it turned out.  Now I just need to make 11 more!!

Nature Walk Class

I am having a Nature Walk Pre-Purchase Class this weekend, April 23, and these are the cards that we are making.  Most of them were cased in one way or another.  I will take pictures of them individually after the class.

My husband was home this past week and I have not had time to prepare for the class, so I am off to cut cardstock and get ready.  I should be getting the stamp sets in today.  

I am also having a stamp a stack and I will post those pictures probably next week.  At least now I have something to take pictures of.  Lately I've been doing other things (non-stamping), so I have no new pictures to post.  Hope to do better with my postings now that we've done yard work (which really is a weekly thing) and have gotten the pool ready for the summer.  We left it open all year this time, but with the pollen and all the trees blooming we are getting a lot of junk in the pool.  We don't usually open it this early, but we took advantage of the warm weather this week.

Downline Swap

I had a downline meeting this month and a card swap.  A few of my girls participated and here is one of the cards.  I will be posting more of the cards throughout the week.  

This is a card that my downline, Toni Turbide, made.  Isn't it great!!  Love the colors and all the details!  Great job Toni!

Bunny Easter Box

Once again, I used this cute little bunny that is made out of punches.  I put him on a box that was made out of the scallop squares duo bigz sizzix die.  This is one of the projects that my clubs made this month.  We put candy inside the box.

Bunny Easter Wagon

I saw a bunny on Kay Sha's blog and just had to CASE it!!  It was so cute, so I decided to put it on a wagon that I CASE'd from Vicky B's blog.   This was my results and I think it turned out way cute.  

 Here is another view of the wagon and cute little bunny!  I put candy inside the wagon.

Floral Tri-fold Card

Here is yet another one of these Tri-Fold cards that I made.  This rose has dew drops on it.  I used Crystal Effects to make the dew drops just like Valita mentioned in her tutorial of the rose.  I liked the effect.  I made this cards outside just like my others but the inside is different.

 I used more flowers on this one.  I stamped these from the Fast & Fabulous Hostess Set in our Stampin' Up! IB&C.  I used several of the sizzix dies that Stampin' Up! carries and to make this card.  I know you make be getting tired of seeing these cards, but I'm having fun making them!!
