Some make & take projects

These are 2 more of the things we made last weekend...at the top, I used the Owl Punch (LOVE IT!) and we made a post-it note holder and 2 extra owls from the punchings (is that a word?). 
Underneath is a beautiful white on white card that has dry embossing, scallop and circle punch, new adhesive pearl and is highlighted with some shimmer Smooch paint.  I used my new Score-Buddy to make the lines at the bottom of the card.
Thanks for stopping by!

Diaper Cake

I took this picture from a display at convention because I thought it was a quick way to do a diaper cake!  I love the ones that have all of the stuff like toys and washcloths etc., but they can be pretty pricey and alot of work.  This one looks easy!  And what a great centerpiece at a Baby Shower!  Here, they've wrapped Designer paper around the rolled dipes and added buttons here and there.  The festive top part is just curled stips of matching cardstock!  I know what I'm going to do at the next baby shower!  And at the bottom right, there is a "diaper" favor and paper shoes--cute!

Which Witch is Which?

This is a variation of a card they demoed at convention...I added the lace at the bottom and the new glitter brad. (and of course, glitter on the hats and stockings!)  I LOVE this set!  It's called "Wicked Cool".  And I think the card turned out kinda "wickedly cool", too...don't you?
If you want to make a card like this, come to my Make & take Aug 20th or 22nd (email me for details).

Sweet Pea baby card

Hello stampers!
This adorable card was a swap from convention--and I don't know who to credit because one of my roomies got it and I took a picture of it..If you are out there and see this, tell us who you are so I can give you credit for such a cute card!
She used the oval and 3/4" circle punch (I'm guessing) for the baby.  Highlights were added with the white gel pen.   Isn't it amazing what you can create with punches?
Thanks for stopping by!  I'm going to go play with my new stuff from the mini!

Vintage is IN

Here is a pic of a display board at convention showing some Vintage card samples.  Vintage is really in right now and Stampin' Up has everything you need to make Vintage items--like: designer paper, Distressing kit, stamps, lace, stick-on pearls, etc.  Aren't they beautiful?  I'm excited to "go outside of the box" for myself and try some Vintage cards!

More from convention

Happy Hour at the Monaco!  We came back from  a fun filled day each day and got free wine and hors-dourves at the hotel!  Here Dana, Peggy and I met up with a great friend, Bonnie--who we'd met at Happy hour 3 years ago!  We have met so many great demos here!  And we share ideas and plan where to go for dinner!
