Getting caught up after convention!

Gosh, I feel like my feet are finally touching the ground once again after convention! We had so much fun and learned so much! It really gave us a ton of energy to focus and expand our business! Which means totally awesome workshops and classes for all you guys!
I feel the biggest announcement at convention was their partnership with Sizzix and the Big Shot. SU! will have ten exclusive dies! And of course the dies will match our great stamp sets and decor! So look forward to seeing our examples of new projects and upcoming classes using the Sizzix!
They also announced on-line ordering. So now if you're up in the night and just can't wait to order something, you can go right ahead and do it! We will give details and instructions on how to do that when the on-line ordering is up and running.
They also announced at Phase 2 for the Decor Elements. As soon as we get information and pictures for that, we will be posting them!
Also, there's a great promotion for 15% off ten stamp sets from the NEW catalog! The promotion runs from August 11 to September 30. Look for the list on the left-hand side of our blog!
We also will be posting a Starter Kit promotion for $199. Be looking for that to be added to our blog!
Thanks for looking and have a fun day!

Thank You! Our Open House was a huge success!

Thank you so much to all of you who came out to our open house! We had a house full all day long and it was great!
We had club last night and the girls were awesome! We had so much fun!
I'm hoping Tiff took some pictures because I just realized I didn't even take a picture of the projects we made! Oh, well! I will post them later!
Of course you all want to know who won the basket! Well, I don't even know yet! We were so tired after our day, that we decided to wait until this morning to pick the winner! So stay tuned, it will be posted shortly!

Here are the two cards that we are making for our class on Tuesday night, the 10 for $15. These two stamp sets I love! They are from the sneak peek that we got for the new catalog coming out on August 11th! WooHoo! I can't wait! The one on the right is Dream du Jour and then of course the Sock Monkey! So come and be the first ones to make cards from these sets! It will be a riot!

I made this card for a swap for convention. The technique I was to use is the gel technique. You put hair gel in a little baggie and it appears to be like a window or water. This is another brand new never seen before stamp set! This is the Window Dressings set. I was a little disappointed that the "so thankful for you" didn't show up as much as I wanted. I should have embossed! But other than that, I thought it turned out pretty cute!

I am so in love with the little Sock Monkey! I made this baby shower card out of him!

I made these thank you cards as part of her gift. I love the banana!
Thanks for stopping by!
Have fun!

Sunday night, time to get caught up!

Gosh, I have been so busy I haven't had time to update! it is!

I really like designing and making cards, so I've been joining a lot of swaps on our Stampin'Up! forum.

I did this card for a 10 + 1 swap:

It was so much fun to make, but very labor intensive! I had to cut most of the apron out by hand. And then since I loved the rick rack - reminded me of my grandma's aprons! - I sewed all that on too!

I love this card though cuz you can use it for so many events!

Especially thank you when somebody gives me something very yummy!

This card I did for a 25 + 1 swap. Wow, that's a lot of cards to make!

I made my own designer paper for the backgound piece (the very vanilla with the really rust flower stamped on it) and that was tons of fun! I have never done that before. I think it turned out pretty cool, huh?

My niece, who is a twin, is having twins, so we went to a baby shower for her. I saw this card on Stampers' Showcase and knew that I had to make it for somebody. Well, she was the lucky one! I altered the card from the one I originally saw by changing a few of the colors, adding the wire for the hangers, and then of course making two onesies because of twins, one boy and one girl!
For part of her gift, I made these thank you cards for her. I did five in the pink and five in the blue.

I love this flower with the Build A Brad in the middle! For the flowers on the bottom, I dry embossed and then lightly sanded the raised portion. I think it turned out pretty cool looking! The picture doesn't do it justice. Of course I had
to use a pink paper out of the Berry Bliss DSP so that I could get the white to show through. If I had used a regular piece of Pretty In Pink cardstock, it wouldn't have had the same effect since the cardstock is colored all the way through.

This card was a little tricky to get a good picture of since it's a pull-out card.

It was super easy to make.

I used a B out of SU's chipboard and covered it with DSP.

For the heart in the center of the star, I used a chipboard star from SU and covered it with Real Red and then embossed it with Glassy Glaze a couple of times to get it all shiney and thick.

Hope you enjoyed my cards tonight.
Thanks for looking!
Don't forget to enter our contest for the retired accessory list!

I made these cute cans for my cousin that is having twins ; )
