Stampin in Phoenix!!!

Two days in a row!!! WATCH OUT! heeheee! This January I was lucky enough to be able to go to Phoenix, Arizona to attend the Stampin Up Regional. I was so excited to meet the people whose blogs I read everyday and to learn all kinds of new stuff and to see swaps and ideas!

You should have heard the screams when I saw these beautiful ladies! You would have thought we all won the lotto!!! Left is Dana , middle Me and right is Lydia . These girls are fun and outta control and I was lucky enough to spend the whole day with them!!!

This is the card I made and was passing out as my swap card. All supplies are Stampin UP!!! I had a blast! Since I've became a SU demo I have had the opportunity to meet the bestest, nicest people imaginable. If you want to have fun stamping and making friends and earning $$$ at the same time, contact me and let's talk about you selling SU and having a blast too!!!

Valentine's for Ronald McDonald House . . .

Hi and Happy 2010!!! I know it's been a long time, but I'm going to REALLY try to snap out of being a bad blogger!

I can't believe it's already nearing Valentine's Day, which means it's also time for more projects to donate to the Ronald McDonald House. These candy bag holders were super easy and I got the instructions to make them from Splitcoaststampers Resource section. I used the new cling stamps from Stampin Up, Love Bandit. If you haven't ordered yours, click on my sidebar and do it now!!! YOU SO WILL LOVE THESE CLING STAMPS!!!

Please come back tomorrow, I've been working in the stamp lab and I have new stuff to post!!! Have a great night!!!

Ronald McDonald House . . .

It's that time of the year again. . . . Time where we make crafty things and donate them to our local Ronald McDonald house for the families that are staying there during the holiday season.

This year I was inspired by the book, Twilight. I'm a major Twilight freak right now, so I thought these little vampire boxes were appropriate :D

I left the gummy lips in their plastic so that they can be ripped off and eaten (and they sure are yummy)! The back of the vampire is an origami box (directions from SCS) and it is perfect size for a YUMMY popcorn ball! Eyes and nose, various SU punches. I can not take credit for the idea. I cased it from the Sept. 24, 2009 post found here .

Have a great night! xoxoxo

Christmas Stamp a Stack #1

My Blog . . . I have been debating whether to break up with my blog or not. I spend SOOOO much time reading and enjoying other people's blogs that I get lazy when it comes to my own. I finally decided (with some nudging from my twitter friends) to give blogging one more try . . . so here we go . . .
This last Saturday I hosted a Christmas Stamp a Stack class. This is the first of two classes. Here are just some of the cards we worked on that day. We had a blast!!!

Welcome to the First Annual Bacon Blog

Good Morning and welcome to the First Annual Bacon Blog. How did this Bacon Blog come about you ask? Well, it all started on Twitter. A group of friends with the love of bacon (and other things) started talking and talking and waala! The First Annual Bacon Blog was born.
Have you ever tried Chocolate Covered Bacon? Just recently the County Fair was in town and they were serving . . .

Unfortunately, taking this picture was the closest I could come to eating chocolate covered bacon! YUCK!

In honor of bacon, here is my card for today . . .

Please hop on over to Dreena Guptil's blog for your next stop, and if you want to go to the top of the hop, start with Leslie at Crooked Stamper!

Happy Bacon Trails!

Hello Kitty Cute Box . . .

Hello Everybody!!! Today's project is a box that I learned how to make by reading Joy's blog. Her blog is AWESOME and has great ideas and tutorials :)

The Hello Kitty's on the belly band were made by Sizzix, and the punches used were by Marvy Uchida.
Today I took a class given by Lydia from Understand Blue, you can see her blog on my sidebar. This webinar was great and she taught me how to give my blog a face lift! I will be working on that this weekend :)

Hello Kitty Bookmarks . . .

One of the AWESOME benefits about being a demonstrator for Stampin Up, is that once a month we are sent a mini magazine called, Stampin Success. In there are great tips and inspirational stories to get us motivated. In July's issue they showed how to make these great and easy bookmarkers!!! I LOVE TO READ and I have a lot of friends that love to read also, so these are lil gifts for co-workers :)
The Hello Kitty is by Sizzix. To make this cute and easy bookmark cut a cardstock 5x5". Fold your square in half horizontally and once vertically so that you have 4 squares. Cut away one corner square. Fold the two remaining "arms" down and glue! Decorate as you wish!!! Just remember these are corner bookmarkers so when you go to decorate, decorate on the right side :) If anyone is interested in joining my Stampin Up team, please contact me, there is a special on the starter kit coming up July 15th!!!
Have a great night!

My 10 minute card . . .

Hope everybody had a great 4th of July holiday!
Today I needed a card for a dear friend and I only had 10 minutes to get it ready. So here it is. A little on the plain side, but I likie!!! The stamp set is called Love Your Face by Daisy Bucket Designs.
When it was time to color my lil monster, I was inspired by a few blogs to color it whatever color I WANTED. So instead of traditional grey for a monster, I picked pink, because I love pink and I love the way it came out!!!! :0) Enjoy the rest of your nite!!!
