Bootful Occasions Stamp Set

Okay I have to admit I am falling in love with this stamp set Bootiful Occasions.  Every year when a new catalog comes out I take part in a 100 card swap the Cricket Thompson heads up.  As I am making 100 of the same cards I get pretty bored, but then when I get the swap I am so thrilled I did it.  This gives me great samples to show at my workshops, fairs and conventions I do.  I would never have fun samples like this one made by Becky Brunton, had I not done the swap.  I so love the colors found in the designer series paper Floral District Designer Series Paper, and, the got to get yet, Chevron Embossing Folder, and one of my favorite Bigz XL Dies Tasteful Trim.

Another Fun Card Spotlighting Stampin' Up!'s Exclusive Designer Series Paper

It is surprising how much color you can add to a card with some pieces of Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper.  This card used the Color Collection in the Brights Paper StackHappy Hour Stamp Set also brings this card to life.  With just a small piece of Pool Party Cardstock Embossed with the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder this card has lots of character.


Stampin' Up! National Convention

I just returned home from an Amazing Stampin' Up! Convention.  Stampin' Up! Conventions are always over the top, and this year was no exception  I just want to thank all of my wonderful customers and downline members, who for the 11th year in a row, have helped me earn an exclusive retreat for being in the Top 100 demonstrators of the company.  Thank You.  This would not be possible without each of you.  This year's theme was "I AM...." and it focused on how each Stamping Up! Demonstrator is different, not only as a person but as a business owner.  Stampin' Up! allows each demonstrator to be what they want to be.  I wanted to share the theme song it keeps running through my head.  "I am... TOTALLY Changed" because of this amazing company.


Papillon Potpourri & My Friend Stamp Sets

Jenny Watson from South Russell, Ohio sent me this beautiful card using Papillon Potpourri & My Friend Stamp Sets.  She also used the beautiful embossing folder Argyle, Apothecary Accents Framelits, and the Elegant Butterfly Punch.  I will have to admit Summer Starfruit was not my favorite new Stampin Up ! In Color when I first seen them released.  But this color is sure growing on me.  Jenny used it with Crumb Cake and I also love it with Early Espresso and the new in color Midnight Muse.
