Downline Meeting

Yesterday I had my first downline meeting and I had such a good time with Phyllis, Jenny and Dorinda. It is so nice to talk shop with people who think the same way you do. We made a cute treat box using the Mover and Shaper Die for the Big Shot. That die isn't just for cards anymore. Found this idea on Dawn Olchefske's blog and redid it a little. Dawn did a presentation at Leadership and I really learned some wonderful things from it.

I made the boxes above to give to two people who helped me tremendously going to Leadership, not knowing a soul. Thanks Jan and Lyssa, I really appreciate both of you.

The boxes we made at the Big Shot Club and at our downline meeting were similar but used the heart die and had a Valentine look to it. We stamped with the set I (Heart) Hearts and used the woodgrain heart to make it more masculine.

Pompom Trim Share

I have been asked to have a Pompom Trim Share and I am more than willing to oblige! On page 35 in the Occasions Mini is the cutest trim I have ever laid eyes on. It comes in three colors, Melon Mambo, Tangerine Tango and Daffodil Delight, three very happy NON WINTER colors. Yes, I am sick of winter, not of snow, just of winter, and yes I am weird. So for $4.75 per share you can have one yard of each of these three colors. Again if you aren't close to me I will charge 50 cents more for postage. So sign up today, spaces are going fast!

1/2" Seam Binding Ribbon Share

1/2" Seam Binding Ribbon is my new favorite accessory and I have just decided I need each color. That got me to thinking, what if you, my favorite stampin' friends, needed every color too? So I got out my trusty calculator and figured out a Seam Binding Ribbon Share.

For a mere $11.50, you will get 2 yards of each of 7 colors, Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke, Baja Breeze, Crumb Cake, Pear Pizzazz and Rose Red. That is 14 yards of beautiful Seam Binding Ribbon, so easy to tie and fray and all sorts of other fun things.

There are 5 spots in each share and the first one already has two people signed up so contact me today to get your spot! I will order each share as it is filled and get it right out to you. If you don't live close enough to me to meet up for delivery please add another 50 cents for postage. I can't wait to get my Seam Binding Ribbon in all of those colors!!!

SWAP card for the Organized SWAP

I promised I would show you my SWAPs and the first one is for an organized WOW SWAP that I participated in with other demos. I was in the Latecomers Group and I am sure that won't surprise anyone but still came away with some incredible cards. I also came away with a stomach virus but we won't go into that, trust me you don't want to know.

This card uses Rich Razzleberry as the base and More Mustard and the Designer Series Paper Botanical Gazette. I also used the new embossing folder from the Occasions Mini, Framed Tulips. Stamps used are the Medallion stamp and the for you is from the new set, Say it Simply. I don't feel good enough to go into details but if you are interested let me know and I will list directions next post.

Wondering where I went?

If you are wondering where I went I can't answer that question. I do not know where the time goes. I have been incredibly busy and with what I'm not sure either. So can you all grant me a do over and let me start again? I promise to try harder to post on a more frequent basis.

I just got back from Nashville, Tennessee where I attended my first SU! Leadership Event and it will definitely not be my last. It was non stop fun at Opryland which is absolutely beautiful. I met a bunch of demos that I "talk" to on SCS and they could not have been nicer people. I won a free stamp set of my choice, did some totally awesome Make and Takes, swapped for some gorgeous cards and 3D projects and was given a bunch of product from the Occasions Mini. To top things off I came back with a million and one ideas for fun stampin' projects for all of us to enjoy.

I participated in one organized SWAP and I will post my card in my next post.
