Convention

Today I am off to my very first Stampin’ Up! convention! It’s a three day creativity filled event jam packed with new products, new ideas, new techniques, and I’ve heard it’s so much fun! I’m looking forward to taking a tour of the Home Office and seeing all the new and exciting stuff that is coming our way over the next few months!

If you want to get in on the fun I am having follow me on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter! I can guarantee you wont want to miss some of the sneak peeks that will be coming your way! I’ll put up come blog posts too, but the others are more instant gratification!

Happy Birthday Day You Two

My Boyfriend Jordan and one of our good friends Pia have the same Birthday! We knew Pia for about 2 years before we really put two and two together to realize that they celebrate the same day!

For the past three years we have celebrated Jordan’s birthday at the Faster Horses Festival in Brooklyn, MI. It’s a three day country music festival! This year we split our time between the festival, my company picnic, and a surprise party downtown Detroit for Pia!

I made them nearly identical cards but I used different DSP and different cardstock to give one a more masculine feel. I wont lie, making masculine cards is difficult sometimes without making a dark card. I am loving the Cherry on Top DSP stack and all the coordinating items that go with it!

I CASEd a card from Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team Inge Groot. I love the Artisan Design Team for all of the ideas and inspiration they provide! I used the exact same stamp set and layout and colors for Pia’s card (the second card), but I changed the colors for Jordan’s card (the first card). I also think I made my card a smaller size.

All supplies are Stampin’ Up! including Sprinkles of Life (Ronald McDonald House Charities) stamp set, Tree Builder Punch, Watermelon Wonder cardstock, Pool Party cardstock, Crumb Cake cardstock, Whisper White cardstock, Bermuda Bay cardstock, Crushed Curry cardstock, Triple Banner Punch, and  handheld stapler.

Congratulations on Your Engagement

I made this card for Scotty and Amanda to congratulate them on their engagement! I didn’t want to give them two cards at their housewarming party so I send this one in the mail!

I like this layout (I believe it was a sketch) so you will see it throughout the blog! I used all Stampin’ Up! products including Timeless Love stamp set, Crumb Cake cardstock, Buckeroo Blue cardstokc (R), Vellum cardstock, English Garden DSP, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Sahara Sand Lace Trim, VersaMark ink, and Gold embossing powder.

Housewarming

Last Saturday we celebrated my Brother and his Fiances new house! I made them this cute little card and ordered them a return address stamp that they will be able to use for many years to come! Congratulations Scotty and Amanda!
