Stampin’ Sunday 2-1-09

Last weekend we had a fun day of Stamping at Janice’s down-line meeting.  Here are the rest of the fun projects that we got to make.

This is a fun pillow box.  I know you can’t see it but we used the new textured plates on it and it looks really cool.  The flower is the new Simple Flower embosslit die .  I love that it embosses it and cuts it out with just one quick turn through the big shot.   We used a half pearl from the pretties kit for the center.  The tag is made by stamping in VersaMark pad and embossing with white embossing powder.  I love that we got to use the new organza ribbon.  I think it is so pretty.

Swapping Saturday 1-17-09

Time for swaps again and I’m still wishing I knew who it was.  I forgot to say one other thing as to why a lot of these cards don’t have names.  When we go to the local meetings we usually do full cards instead of card fronts like at convention.  This way we can actually use the card.  However because of this we often don’t put our name directly on the card.  Some will include a business card or the card might have a sticky note with the name, but they often get lost or removed.  That’s why I don’t know who to give the proper credit to.

s-split-treesI really love this card and the way that she stamped the trees and then cut them apart.  I just think it is a really neat look.  I also really liked how she put on the ribbon.  It’s unique and different than the traditional knot that most people do (including myself).  I think it’s a beautiful card.

Awesome Meeting

I’ve spent the weekend at a meeting my up-line Brandi Barnard put on.  It was so much fun.  If you are in my down-line and didn’t make it you really missed out.  If your not in my down-line yet there’s always a quick easy way to join in all the fun.  We had a great time swapping and made a fabulous project as well as visiting with friends and learning great tips to build our business.  There were also lots of great displays and I came back with so many fun project ideas that I can’t wait to show you.  Hopefully I will be able to get some of them posted here soon.
