Girl's Spring Fling crafting weekend at the Embassy!

The group of us!  We had so much fun this past weekend--stamping, crafting, eating, drinking, laughing!  None of us wanted to go home to the "real world" when it was over!  This was our 2nd Annual Spring Fling...
Peggy and Jenny taking a break from crafting...

Sharon and the CUTE tags she made for her sister!

Elaine in front of our room showing off our display of things we were making during the "Ironing Board Parade."  Everyone put their ironing board out and displayed what they'd made so far--it was so fun go go around and see!  I wish I'd taken more pics!

Fabric Flowers

Hello Stamping Friends!
While I was at Leadership, my downline Dina (InkinwithDink) and I decided to have a challenge...it was to make a bunch of these fabric flowers to use as hostess gifts or door prizes.  We have to post a pic of them on our blog!  So here are SOME of mine!  The ones with the ribbon are to tie around a gift--Or as my friend, Diana, suggested--a bracelet!  The others are great as pins, barrettes or on cards...
I used the Bigz flower die and sprayed starch on them first and crumpled to make them a little more 3-d.  Also, some have a layer of net in them.   I'm really liking playing with Stampin' Up's fabric without sewing!!
Off to get ready for my Make & take here in an hour!
Thanks for stopping by!

Thomas the Train

Hello stamping friends!
Isn't this cute?  It's a birthday party favor bag for my friend's grandson's 2nd b'day party--we made 20 of them and once they were stuffed with favors and tissue and tied with a bow, they were adorable!  What we did, was look at a picture of Thomas the Train and copied it using Stampin' Up punches and cardstock!  It's alot easier than you think to create something this way!

"Bliss" card

Hello stamping friends!
This stamp set, "Bliss", is one that you can get FREE during Sale-A-Bration with a $50 order (until the end of March).  Ya know, when I first saw this set, I thought it was nice-but couldn't picture how I would use it...
Then, I saw some cards made with it and fell in love!  I will post another card using it next (we did it at the last make & take here) and it became a favorite of my friends (so of course, they wanted to get it free, also!)
The Desinger paper used here is "Newsprint" and it goes so well with the Vintage sets that are so popular now.       By the way, I didn't make this card, I took a pic of it at Regionals....
Thanks for stopping by!

Fabric Flowers on cards

Hello stamping friends!
Aren't these beautiful?  They were prizes at a meeting with Amy Johnson at Leadership.  She had organized a special dinner for those of us in her downline while we were at Leadership in Nashville (January).  SADLY, I didn't win one!!!  But I took this picture so that I can remember how to make them!  She used the Big Shot and Bigz Flower die with Springtime Vintage Fabric from Stampin' Up (of course!)
Thanks for stopping by!
