Busy planning

It's been a busy few weeks planning my friends bridal shower that takes place today.  Thankfully, I'm co-hosting the event so I didn't have all of the items to plan for.

I did take advantage of My Digital Studio in order to make a few things.

I wanted to have pretty water bottles for those who didn't want to drink punch.  I was able to design labels that matched the colors we are using, and print out 4 to a sheet of paper.

Since I'm responsible for the games, I decided upon bridal bingo.  And, yes, I could have purchased the game somewhere (and it might have been cheaper).  However, this one is personalized, professional and matches the colors!  It was the project that took ALOT of time (there are 18 different ones), but it was fun!

Once today is over, I can start working on Convention swaps!

June Projects

This past weekend I enjoyed some time away, camping with my husband and our dogs.  Some would say we don't "really" camp, since we don't rough-it.  Been there, done that!

Anyway, it's taken me longer to post the projects from this months classes and club.  They all focused on the new stamp set, Mosaic Madness.  The more I use this set, the more it grows on me.

This card was a case from Deb Currier.  I changed the color of card stock and the greeting image (Sassy Salutations, which happens to be on sale @ 25% off through June 30th!) to fit with what I had on hand.  

This card is also a direct case, this time from Tamara Bertram.  The only thing I changed was the greeting.  Sometimes there just isn't anything to change and someone else has come up with the perfect solution for what you are looking for.

This last project was inspired by a 3-D swap that I received this past year at Convention.  Why it didn't stand out to me before now, I don't know.  But it was a huge hit with my customers.  

It uses just over one sheet of card stock to make plus additional to decorate.  
Here are the measurements:
Cover:  2-3/4"x9" (score at 3, 3-1/2, 6-1/2 & 7-inches), 2-3/4"x2"
Pages: 3 pieces that measure 2-3/4"x11" (score each at 2, 5 & 8-inches)
Colored card stock: 2-3/4"x3", 2"x2-3/4"
Designer Series Paper (or more colored card stock): 2-3/4"x3"
Stamps, punches as desired to decorate.

This is how you will fold the pages.  Two will be shaped like the above photo, the 3rd will get turned upside down.  Attach all 3 so that the short (2" flap) is hidden on the underside.

Here is how I decorated the insides of mine.  Just photos and strips of designer series paper.  The cover page was done in MDS (My Digital Studio).

Finally, here is a card that I took inspiration from Stampin' Success, a bi-monthly magazine available to Demonstrators.  Just another perk of being a demonstrator!  

Thanks for stopping by.

More My Paper Pumpkin

I finally got around to playing with the very first My Paper Pumpkin kit that I received.  It's also the first  kit you will receive when you sign-up, no matter when that is.  Click on the link above to sign-up now.  It's a cute and quick card with the instructions that are with the kit, but I'm loving it "stepped-up"!

Hope you're inspired to create something beautiful too.
Thanks for stopping by.

Team Meeting Swaps

Today was my team meeting with my downline.  It's always a great time getting together with these wonderful ladies.  They give me inspiration all the time!

Here are the swaps from today.  Somehow I managed to give mine away without taking photos of them.  Oops!

These swaps were done by Michele.  I love the use of the new In-colors!

This one was done by Jen.  So bright and cheery!

Wish you could join us?  You can, just click the link above to sign-up and join my team.  I'd love to have you be a part.

Another Mosaic Madness

This card was inspired by a Pinterest post.  I liked the layout and thought the Mosaic Madness stamp set worked well with it.  The "happy birthday" saying is from Petite Pairs (which happens to be on sale for 25% off this month).

The colors are not my usual pairing, but I kinda like them.

Finally, some inspiration!

From time to time, the creativity just doesn't come.  That happened for me this past week.  I had the new catalog, new stamps and accessories to play with, and yet no creativity!  Finally, last night it happened.

It's a simple card, but I like it.  You can't really tell from the photo, but there is a coordinating punch that goes with the stamp set and the textured impressions folder.  

Stamp set:  Mosaic Madness
Ink Colors:  Island Indigo & Strawberry Slush (one of the new In-Colors)

Thanks for stopping by.

Oh the good 'Ol Summertime

This past weekend I was away with family camping and enjoying the outdoors.  I should have been home since the new catalog was released on Friday, but I wasn't.  And, I didn't have connection to the rest of the world with all the electronic means that we've come accustomed to either.  I did enjoy camping though!

Watch the next few days for some stamping inspiration.  Now off to complete more laundry!
