Sweet Stuff with Stamping & Blogging

Hi Everyone!

It’s been a whirlwind since getting back from the Stampin’ Up! Convention in Salt Lake City last week. It was so much fun…glad I got this little card done before I left as I’m still tired! Go figure! I think I walked at least 100 miles! lol

This little card is done featuring the “Sweet Stuff” Stamp Set. I fell it love with it as my granddaughter did Ballet and even though she is growing up I still think of her in her little costumes.

I stamped the image in Momento Black and colored in with the new Calypso Coral Blendies available to you August 1st!

Here is a close up of the little Ballerina. Isn’t she cute? I doubled matted the oval using my Ovals Framelits and touched off her little belt with a single Rhinestone. Wouldn’t this be perfect for your little Ballerina?

Here is a the sketch we have from Sandi this week. Simple and cute and just perfect for this little card I think.

Have you ever used a sketch before? If not give it a try and see what you come up with. Look at the image piece and then your stamp sets and see what you have that fits….then build around it. It’s that easy!


Did you know that the Designer Series Paper on pages 186 and 187 are buy 3 get one free until the end of the month? They are and that’s a great deal!!! So hurry! If you need a catalog let me know. They are so fun to go to sleep to! lol


Supplies needed:

Are you ready to see the Design Team? I can’t wait to check it out myself!

Thanks for stopping in today. I hope to see you back soon.

Happy Stamping!!!

Stampin' Up! Convention Highlights

Hi Everyone!

Just got back yesterday from the Stampin’ Up! Convention. Can I just say: “WOW”!!! I am overwhelmed with all of it.  It was so awesome.

I’d like to share a part of it with you but first I want to thank all of you…my Friends/Customers and Downline for making this such a memorable year! You’re the best!!! Love ya all!!! Let’s not forget my sweet Hubby either he supports me 100% with this.

First here is one of my swap cards…..hope you enjoy it. It’s using the Hostess Stamp Set Bloom With Hope and Gorgeous Grunge. Love the combo. Hope you do too!image

I am honored to announce that I made it into the Top 100 Demonstrators in the Country. I am so thrilled to be amongst these fabulous Ladies (and Gents-Brian)! I think this was supposed to be the funny shot but most of us are just beaming from ear to ear! (I’m 3rd row 5th from the left) Next to Tami White!


Here I was surprised and thrilled to receive a spot (#10) in the top ten Demonstrators for Recruit Promotions to Supervisor and above!! Holy Moly!! Got some Fabulous company on stage with me there including our founder Shelli Gardner!


Check out the VIP/Recognition Room that Stampin’ Up! had for us. If you achieved this year you got to hang out there. Couldn’t help but put my feet up! hehe

Did you see who made it into the room with me? Susan Best from Staming Inferno. I am so proud of her accomplishments this year!! She earned her first Incentive Trip to Washington DC this coming September. Whoo Hoo for Susan!image

This was part of the Recognition Room as well. We got to do these fun shots…..


It’s Official….Susan got her Get-a-way Ribbon! Whoo Hoo! I think she’s happy don’t you?


Susan just finished her walk across stage and so did I for our earned trips!


Not all… but more of my team at Convention. Some I had met for the very first time. A big shout out to Amanda, Sabrina, Priscilla, Zarogina, Rose Ann, Linda and Beka!



This was taken at the Morman Tabernacle…we had fun touring but was it Hot!


Susan fooling around in Harmon’s …just the best Grocery Store/Restaurant in Salt Lake. Bottom right with me and Mark Consuelos (just kidding)! He looked just like him in person. Kelly Rippa you’ve got a Mark double out there! lol


It was great fun meeting some of these team members from all over the country and getting to know them better. I love that part!

That’s it for today. Thanks for stopping by and I’ll see you back here soon.

Happy Stamping!!!
