Wow it’s been a while

So I know I’ve been MIA for a bit.  I actually just realized that it’s been even longer than I thought it was.  So first, I want to say I’m sorry and thanks to all of you who have stuck with me.  Next, YES I’m still a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.  That being said I wanted to let you know I’m back.  Things have been crazy in my life in the last few years, but I’m finally in a position that I feel I can work on my business again and I hope you will take this new journey with me.

What you can expect:

  • Lots of updates and changes on my Blog
  • More consistent posts
  • Fun new classes
  • Examples and projects
  • Videos
  • Contest and Challenges
  • Free stuff!

Be watching over the next little while for all the fun and exciting changes.

I look forward to you all taking this journey with me.

Thanks,

End of school year fun

I hope that all of you are enjoying your summer.  For me it’s already going by so fast.  Today I thought I would share just a couple of things from the end of the school year.

First I’m now the proud mother of a High School Graduate.  I’m so proud of my son and his accomplishment.  Thanks to Stampin’ Up! celebrating his accomplishment was easy to share with others.  This is the cute announcement I made to send out to our friends and family.   Using  “My Digital Studio”  made it super easy especially with the cute layout they had designed.  I just changed it a bit to fit my needs and pictures.  I used the Embark Graduate #133467 $12.95.  I of course changed the colors to my son’s school.  I also used it to make easy decorations for his graduation party.

Here’s a couple of quick pictures of the fun banner along with the cards he received from family and friends.

I also made this fun banner for to hang up at the party.  I supper excited to have these banners back.  I loved them in the holiday catalog and have had so much fun creating banners with them to celebrate all sorts of things.

Horray Banner

I also have to share the amazing cake my son made for him.  He may not be stamping (although he’s good at that too when he wants to) but he must get a little talent from Mom right.  He’s definitely got a knack for it that’s for sure.  I’m so glad he’s willing to help Mom out.

Here’s just a few pictures celebrating the big day.  I’m still not quite sure how he’s old enough to graduate because I’m not old enough, but we sure are proud of him.  I was luck enough to have my other son in the band so he was able to sit right down front and get pictures for me.

Me & Zack Graduation

While my older three boys are all in upper level schools with many teachers, my youngest is still in elementary so I wanted to make something special for his awesome teacher.

I thought that teachers can always use cards so I made this cute card holder and filled it with fun hand-stamped cards.

I think it roughly holds about 15 cards.  Here’s a little closer look at the tag.  I seriously love this tag punch and I’m so glad it’s in the new catalog.  You’ll also noticed that I used a bran new stamp set on this fun project.  One of the great parts of being a demonstrator is being able to pre-order new products including new stamp sets, accessories and even in-colors.  Plus we get the catalog a whole month early to enjoy looking through.

I also wanted a fun little gift for all the kids so I made them each a book-marker to help them remember to keep reading this summer.  Now I know this one used a retired stamp and I’m sad that these in-colors are gone (however I’m totally loving the new ones), but I thought he was just to cute not to use and the kids would love it.  I did use the hello from the new photoplymer set Endless Birthday Wishes.  This set has already sold out once so be sure to get yours before they are gone.

Here’s my cute little one with his teacher.  We are sad that she won’t be his teacher anymore she was awesome, but I’m sure he’ll have yet another great teacher as he moves into 2nd grade.

Thanks for letting me share a few proud moments with you.  I hope you all have a great summer with lots of Stampin’.  Be watching for all the fun summer events I have coming up.  Summer is also a great time to get together with your friends for a little stampin’ fun.  I’d love to help you out.  Just give me a call and we’ll set up a date.

PS.  I have new catalogs so be sure to come to one of my events and get yours.

Happy Mother’s Day!

I hope all of you are enjoyed your Mother’s Day.  I’m spent my Mother’s Day weekend with my husband and friends in Moab, Utah running the Red Rock Relay.  I did it last year and had so much fun.  Once again we had a great time.

Red Rock 2014

I wanted to share with you real quick the project we made last month for our monthly club.

Mother's Day Box

Each club member was able to make this adorable mother’s day gift box perfect for that special gift for mom.  The box was made using the envelope punch board.  Yes this board is great for so much more then just making envelopes.

Mother's Day Box Open

To make the box I started with an 8×8 piece of paper.  I used the punch board and lined my paper at the 5 then punched and scored.  Afterwards I moved it to the 3 and punched and scored again. I repeated this on each side of the paper.  Once I was done with that I used the corner rounder on the top to round all my edges.  Last you will want to flip the paper over and use your score board to score the center marks on each of the corners.  This is the part that you can see folded in.  This is also where I placed the glue to hold the box together.  You don’t need to do this only if you want the box to stay together withouth the belly band.  In the picture below I’ve drawn in the score lines so you can see them.

Envelope Punchboard Box instructions

I finished the box off with a fun belly band.  You’ll notice that our box matches the cute card that was available to make in the card buffet.

Mother's Day Flower Card

Here’s a close up of the cute belly band and the flowers that pop.  I finished the flowers off with a little pearl in the middle.  I love how they look.  Remember to use your bond folder to curl your flowers and give them more dimension.

I hope you had fun sharing projects with your mother this mother’s day.  I love sharing handcrafted projects with my Mom as well as family and friends.

Hooray for today!

Sorry I’ve been away for a bit, but if was for a great reason.  As I mentioned before my son competes in robotic competitions.  Not only did he win the state competition but it also qualified his team to compete in the World’s Competition.   We took the opportunity to go to California and support his team.  While we were there we stopped over at Disneyland for a few days since it was across the street.

I was excited to use my stampin’ talents to cheer his team on.

His team has a fun logo that they use for buttons, signs and their facebook page.  I used this logo as my inspiration for a couple of projects.

First I had to have cute nails to cheer them on.  I used “My Digital Studio” our digital paper crafting program to create my custom nail design which I was able to print through my Jamberry Nail company.  It was so easy to use all of our great punches and colors to create the same design that we used for the logo.

So first here’s the layout, all show you the finished ones in a minute.

Murphy Nail wraps

Next I wanted something special to let all of the boys on the team as well as his teacher how proud I was of all of them and how much I enjoyed cheering on their team this year.  Of course Stampin’ Up! came to the rescue again.  I made them these cute cards.  Once again I was able to use the great punches and stamps to create this fun card.  I used their logo as my inspiration.  I’ve included the button of their logo so you could see it.  All the boys loved them.  I wish that I would have thought to get a picture of all of them holding them.  I used the silver glimmer paper for the robot and I just love how it sparkles.  Who said you couldn’t have sparkle on a boys card 🙂

Hooray for today Murph-E Card

We also wanted to look unified at the event while we were cheering so we decided to have t-shirts made.  The boys would were black shirts and white ties with fedoras to all their competitions.  They felt that it was good luck as well as made them look more professional.  My husband came up with the idea to make T-shirts to match.  It think they turned out awesome, we got tons of great comments on them.  So this was the back:

Back of Murph-E shirt

I’m happy to say all of our hard work and cheering paid off as the boys were awarded the energy award for the team with the most spirit.  They went home with this awesome trophy.  There were only 5 trophy’s given in each division of 83 teams besides the winners so we were quite proud to be taking one home.  Here’s his team with the trophy in their “uniform.”  Their team was 4184E team Murph-E.

Team Murph-E

We were very excited that we were able to help cheer them on.  They did a great job and were were really proud of them.  Here we are in our matching t-shirts.  My son is the one holding the trophy.  My Mom was also able to come with us a cheer them on.

Our Family in Murph-E t-shi

I know I promised to show you the nail wraps after they were on.  So I thought what better way than to show them off with the trophy.  I also got lots of compliments on my cute nails.

Murph-E Nails

I hope you enjoyed learning a little about me and how I incoperate Stampin’ Up! into all aspects of my life.  If you would like to learn more about my son’s team Murph-E you can check out his Facebook page.   If you would like to know more about the Vex Robotics program just click here.

Once again I’m grateful for a job that allows me the opportunity to spend time with my children and to support them in their dreams.  Plus gives me a chance to treat my kids to a fun adventure.
