Wacky Wednesday 3-18-09

OK I decided to put these in Wacky Wednesday because I’m a day late for St. Patrick’s Day. 

leprechaunI made this cute little guy for my “Discover the Green Night” for decorations.  I had a bunch spread out on the table.  They also a fun treat because they are on a peppermint patty.  I got the idea Samantha Parisi.  She has some amazing punch art on her blog  www.rubberstampingdiva.com.  You can check out her blog for all the details on how to make them.

pot-of-goldWhat is a Leprachaun with out his trusty pot of gold.  Samantha is just so clever.  It’s this just so cute.

lucky-me-heartsAt the event we had the chance to make this fun card.  It was designed by a member of our group.  My up-line has a wonderful blog that is available to our group only.  This is just one of the many benefits for joining our group as a Stampin’ Up!® demonstrator.  If you want to learn more you can check out my “Join me” section or give me a call at 435-245-5321.  I love to talk to you more about this wonderful opportunity.

So you are probably wondering why these fun cards are featured under Wacky Wednesday.  Well it’s really pretty simple.  When I was looking at these cards and trying to decide where to put them I realized that I had forgotten to post my projects of the month.

good-friend-cardThese cute cards match the projects perfectly.  I will hopefully get them posted later today.  So I figured I was a little Wacky and running behind as usual. 

Since I leave on the 20th and I’m getting a late start on getting out my monthly projects I decided two things.  First I’m going to extend the deadline for this month (see more info with the projects) and 2nd I’m going to give the products to make these to cards with any kit that is ordered before the end of the month.  You can email me at andersoncandice@hotmail.com or call me at 435-245-5321.  Click here to see the projects.

good-friend-circle-cardBoth of these cards were ones we made at our shoebox swap a few weeks ago.  I’m not sure who designed the one with the rectangle but I know the circle one was by my awesome up-line Janice Barlow.  I think they are both really cute.  I love that they both used a different color of yellow and it works great with the DSP.

hawaii-packageI like Wacky Wednesday because it gives me a chance to share some other fun stuff.  I received this in the mail and I was so excited to get it.  I love that Stampin’ Up! sends our travel documents in such a fun packaging.  I’m so excited to leave for Hawaii next week.  My kids are so sad that they are not going with us. 

hawaii-package-insideIsn’t this bag so cute.  I love the luggage tags.  I can’t wait to see what other fun surprises they have in store for us when we get there.  The hotel we are staying in is so nice.  If you want to see how Stampin’ Up! spoils us you can check out the hotel at www.HiltonWaikoloaVillage.com.  This place is 62 acres and has canal boats and swiss made trams to get around it.  How cool is that.  There is even a Dolphin Learning Center where you can swim with the dolphins (I wish that was paid for).  I will definitely be sharing pictures and more fun info when I get back.

incentive09_hawaii_190wI want to send out a big “THANK YOU” to all my wonderful hostess, customers and down-line that helped me to achieve this fabulous vacation.  I would love for you to join me in the future for other wonderful opportunities like this.  Please check out my JOIN ME section to learn more.   I would love to have you on my team.

hellow-there-cardI received this through a mail in swap with my up-line Brandi Barnard.  The Card was created by Kasia Jackson.  I think this is a really fun card and I love how it pops open. 

hello-there-card-opening1The card is a 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ when it is closed.  One of the fun techniques on this card is she put clear micro beads in the wing of the bird and the cute little leaf is cut out of textured card-stock.

Wacky Wednesday 2-18-09

So this is a little different for the Wacky Wednesday.  However I think it qualifies because I was a little wacky in not mentioning it sooner.  If you haven’t heard already then you will love this news.  At leadership Stampin’ Up!© announced that later this year (we don’t know when) they will be releasing a digital scrapbooking program.  Now for those you like me who love traditional scrapbooking this may not be a big deal.  For those of you who are already using digital scrapbooking (or want to) you may be wondering why you would want ours.  So let me tell you five of the reasons I’m so excited about this new product:

ds-kona1- I think the bigest thing as that it’s Stampin’ Up!  This means that it will have all of Stampin’ Up! exclusive colors as well as punches, designs and accessories.  That to me is just awesome.

ds-dear-lizzie-page2- Next is they talked about printing companies.   They will offer places that you can get your pages printed in true color and in 12×12.

ds-dear-lizzie-hybrid3- Hybrid Scrapbooking.  For those of you who don’t know what that is let me explain.  This is were you combine some of the awesome digital effects of digital scrabooking with the wonderful dimensional effects of traditional.  For example.  Using the digital scrapbook to enhance your picture and add some journaling.  Maybe even print it out on a 8×8 page.  Then add it to a 12×12 page along with some embellishments like chipboard and brads to give your project a real wow.  This is what I am so excited about.

ds-happiness-is4- Layout idea.  Have you ever wondered what something would look like and tried to picture it in your head, but it didn’t quite come out that way on paper.  I think this program would be great just to help me plan my pages.  I could figure out what size I want to print my pictures and how I want it to look.   Then I can recreate it with all the fun Stampin’ Up! products.  Plus they told us they would have some templates to start with so it’s a great way to get new ideas or start and idea.

5- If you are like me you probably have way more pictures that you can handle when it comes to scrapbooking.  I usually scrapbook my favorites and then the rest are just put in picture sheet protectors or worse just shoved in a box somewhere.  However  lot of them are really great pictures.  I love the idea of scrabooking my favorites and then putting the rest in to a few digital scrapbook pages that match.  This way you still get to see them in a cute fun way, but it saves me the time of scrapbooking them all.

I’m really excited about this new product and hope you are too.  I will keep you posted when I know more information.  For now make a note and put it on your wish list, because weather you are traditional or digital this is definitely something you will want for your collection.
