Time For Another Creative Fold Card

#appleofmyeye Linda Bauwin

Today's Creative Fold Video features the Apple of My Eye Stamp Set that is found in the Occasions Catalog.  When I head out to Salt Lake City next month for Stampin' Up!'s OnStage Event, I have teamed up with the talented Cindy Baughman from Hawaii and Kim Williams of Butler, PA to do a kick-off party for our TEAMS.  Our theme is "Apple of My Eye" and this is the card I have designed to swap.

Today's creative fold is called a V-Fold Card and I used a 4 1/4" x 11" and it is scored at the 2 3/4" and the 8 1/4" mark.  Then I made a pencil mark an inch and a half from the bottom along the 4 1/4" inch side of the card stock. I then scored from that pencil mark to the score line on each side of the card stock.  By adhere these flaps down and across the bottom it forms a pocket and that is where the card goes.  The card itself measures 3 5/8" x 5 1/4" for the black card stock and 3 3/8" x 5" for the whisper white.

Gift From Shelli & Sara

Beautiful Flowers Linda Bauwn

Aren't these flowers so beautiful?  They arrived on Saturday from Shelli Gardener, Cofounder of Stampin' Up! and her daughter Sara Douglass, CEO of the company.  The pictures doesn't do them justice.  

When I reached my Milestone, I was contacted by the company asking me my favorite, flower, color, favorite Stampin' Up! Color, favorite designer series paper, and stamp set.  From there my flower arrangement and a special card was designed.  Just for me.  I feel so honored.  And what a wonderful job they did capturing my favorites in the flower arrangement and card.

The card ran into a little mishap with the flowers, which at first I was so crushed by, as it was so wet and I felt ruined.  But instead it took on a whole new watercolor look once it dried.

#shelligardner Linda Bauwin

I just feel totally blessed with this special gift.  Now I am even more excited as I approach my trip out there next month.  So many questions were asked about what I wanted to do.  If this much detail was done for my flower arrangement and card, I can't wait to see what is in store for Jodie and I in Salt Lake City.

I was also so blessed this weekend with so many Facebook and e-mail messages, phone calls, cards, and flowers.  Look at my kitchen counter.  Truly blessed.  Thank you to everyone.

To Unbelieavebale For Words

Invitations Linda Bauwin

This arrived in the mail yesterday and there are no words to express all the gratitude I have for each of you.  I praise God for bringing so many wonderful ladies in to my life to make my trip with my Assistant Jodie to Salt Lake City a reality.  The first part of our trip will be for OnStage a Stampin' Up! Convention.  It will broadcast around the world to all Stampin' Up! demonstrators in other countries.

The invitation is for a formal event called CentreStage Live at the Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake City. This is for the leaders of the company.   It will include a pre-dinner reception, a lovely, four-course meal and entertainment.  This will be our preview of this beautiful hotel.  On Sunday after OnStage, Stampin' Up! will be taking Jodie and I here for 3 nights, as they pamper us during my Million Dollar Acknowledgement.

#lindabauwin

Part of the celebration is so fitting "The Sky Is The Limit".  Jodie and I will be taking a hot air balloon ride over Park City Utah. Too unbelievable.  We will also be going to cooperate office, no big fanfare my choice, but a chance to met with cooperate TEAM and see home office.

The best part is we will have a photographer with us.  So we will be able to capture all the fun and share it with you.  I will be sharing some on Stamping with Linda Facebook page while I am out there, so if you have not liked my page you need to so you can see what we are up too.  But I will share more when we return.  Again I thank God and each of you for this amazing adventure.

Artisan TEAM Shares

Easter is in the area, so early this year, I didn't get as many projects done as I wanted.  So thought I would share some Easter Cards that were share by the Artisan TEAM at Stampin' Up!  Each year the company picked demonstrators to be part of the Artisan TEAM from application that are submitted.   They are sure recitative as you will see by the following cards.

Artisian Happy Easter Linda Bauwin

All I can say is WOW.  Look at the detail in this card, so many cool embellishment with little stamping.

Artisian Easter Linda Bauwin

Oh my I am so in love with the Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper and the matching Birthday Blooms Stamp Set and these cards use these products so well.

Artisian Inspiration Linda Bauwin

There is the beautiful Birthday Blooms Stamp Set again plus the adorable Easter Lamb.  Don't forget this lamb is also perfect for baby cards.

Artisian Team Birthday Linda Bauwin

Masculine Cards For Club

Masculine Club Class  Linda Bauwin

Where does time go?  It is time for Occasions Card Club again next week.  This month we are going to focus on masculine cards.  I personally find masculine cards the hardest to make, but am pleased with the cards I came up with.

If you live in the Jefferson, Ohio area I would love to have you join us.  You will make the 4 masculine cards for $8 or free with a $25 purchase.  All you need to do is RSVP and bring your our adhesive.  Classes this month will be this Saturday from 10 until noon.  Or this Tuesday is open house style and you can come anytime from 1 p.m. until 6 p.m.

The first two cards are made with the Bear Hugs Bundle and are just cute little cards that could also be used for a child, also.

Bears Linda Bauwin

Fish Card Linda Bauwin

Masculine Leaf Card Linda Bauwin

The third card uses the Leaflets Framelits and the Sheltering Tree stamp set.  Need to tell you an interesting thing.  When Stampin' Up! interviewed me for my acknowledgement of achieving the million dollars in personal sales, they asked what stamp set best describes me.  It was like what?  And out of my mouth popped Sheltering Tree.  Have you ever said something and then wondered why in the world did I say that?  Well I have thought about it, and it's like I am a sheltering tree, as I love to give shelter to those that are in need of support and encouragement.  So what is the stamp set that best describes you?

Star Fish Card Linda Bauwin

This card was created by inspiration from a card I received from Janet Wakeland.  So love happy mail.  Thanks Janet.

Just want to express my gratitude once again for all that helped achieve my goal of becoming the First Million Dollar Linda with Stampin' Up!  

Long Achieved Linda



THANK YOU - MISSION ACCOMPLISHED

Long Achieved Linda

There are not enough words to express my gratitude for the support you have shown me over the last month, for that matter for the last 19 years.  Your kind words of encouragement and orders have been so deeply appreciated.  

I did became the First Million Dollar Linda with Stampin' Up, at about 4:30 on Friday.   I am only the 11th million dollar achiever in the whole company.    This is a goal I have had for a long time.  That is so unbelievable coming from a rural farm town.  Only by God's Grace and amazing ladies like you was I able to accomplish it.

Plans are under way for Jodie, my assistant, and I to fly to Salt Lake City in April to attend OnStage, a conference at Stampin' Up!.  That is where I will be acknowledged in front of my peers.  

We will stay after for three days as the company pampers us. My trip will be a low-key, as that is my wishes.  No huge celebration just a quiet stay in Utah enjoying the beautiful country.

There will be a trip to the home office no fanfare, but to work with a concept artist to create my own stamp set.  I can't wait to share this set with you in the future.  This stamp set has been a dream of mine for a long time.

Stampin' Up! is providing us a photographer to capture our trip.  So you know I will sharing lots of pictures in the future.
