Donna's Visit

I shared last week that Donna Griffith from the Stampin' Up! Home Office was kind enough to attend my events a couple weekends ago.  I was honored to have her attend!  She attended not only my class on Saturday morning but a team meeting with myself and some of my team on Friday evening.  We had so much fun visiting with her and learning from her.  I love my team! They're all amazing and full of creativity and I learn so much from all of them!  If you want to be part of this amazing group it's always a great time to join!
I shared lots from our meeting and my class already but I have lots more to share with you too.  Watch for that coming next week!  In the meantime I do have fun projects to share this week.  I've been behind on life for a few days. I think I'm finally catching up!

Thanks for looking, see you soon!!!

Rococo Rose Tree

I have a really fun card for you today!  I love this card!  I love non traditional Christmas colors for Christmas cards so of course Coastal Cabana and Rococo Rose make perfect sense to me!!!  I used the Perfectly Plaid bundle for my tree and the Buffalo Check background for my Stitched Nested Label. The greeting is from the Itty Bitty Christmas set, another new must have in the Holiday Catalog.  I finished the card with some Rhinestones that I colored with Rococo Rose Blends and some Glitter Enamel Dots.  Finally a big bow with the Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.  I love it!!!

Gold Tipped Feathers

I guess I can't help it this week I'm on a Gather Together Suite posting marathon I guess.  All unplanned but you can see why I LOVE these products so much!  Today's card is an over the top kind of card I love it!!!  I mailed this card to Donna thanking her for coming to see me, my team and my customers.  I started of course with the Come To Gather DSP.  I love this DSP!!!  I love those checks but I wanted to tone them down a little so I used a little Vellum to tone the DSP pattern back a little.  The greeting is White Heat Embossed and I used the 'thanks' from the Here's A Card set.  One of my favorite greeting sets!  I added some Scalloped Pretty Peacock Ribbon under the greeting to add a little more pop to this card.
The feathers are from the Tags and Feathers Elements, again in the Gather Together Suite.  I love these wood elements, you can do so much with them and they come with awesome wood circles too!  I love those!!! I brushed the bottom half of my leaves with some VersaMark and dipped them in Gold Embossing Powder.  I heated them up and I LOVE LOVE LOVE that gold dipped look!!!  I finished the card with some Noble Peacock Rhinestones, White Bakers Twine and a splattering of Dark Pretty Peacock Stampin' Blend.  I love the final result of this card!

Pretty Peacock Pumpkins Facebook Live

Remember yesterday when I told you I loved this bundle?  Well I have another fun and simple card to share using it.  I used the Gather Together Bundle and if you love fall this is the bundle for you.  But even if you don't love fall the versatile leaves can be used year round and there are fun greetings in here you can use all the time too!

I shared this card in my Facebook Live this week, for all the details check out my video.  I kept it simple with only one ink pad, Pretty Peacock.  The pumpkins are colored using the Pretty Peacock Blends.  I finished the card with some Come To Gather DSP and a Linen Thread bow.

Come To Gather Birthday

The new Gather Together Bundle is one of my favorite bundles right now.  I love the images and the dies that come with it are pretty amazing!  Don't you love those leaves!?!  You definitely need this bundle!  I paired up this bundle with the Come to Gather DSP, it's a match made in heaven! I wanted to make this a fun birthday card so I grabbed my trusty Itty Bitty Birthdays Set.  Finally I finished it off with a bow using our Scalloped Trim Ribbon in Pretty Peacock.  The ribbon is pretty thick and I wanted a more delicate bow so I cut the ribbon in half and just used one side.  I love the rough edges it leaves.

September Class

What a weekend!  It's been a whirlwind of the last few days and I've had trouble keeping up with all the festivities.  My birthday was Thursday and other then a few things here and there I didn't work too hard.  My husband had the day off and we went to lunch while the kids were in school.  Friday I had an incredible team meeting with our special guest Donna Griffith from the Stampin' Up! home office, Donna took some pictures and as soon as she sends them to me I'll share them.  Then Saturday I had my annual Birthday Card Stamp a Stack in honor of my birthday, again with special guest Donna attending that as well.  There was so much going on that I didn't get a single picture, not a one!  UGH!  I could kick myself for that.  But when things get super busy it's so hard to stop and grab your phone.  I had a great time and I hope all my guests did too.  We made some pretty amazing cards that I LOVE!  Check them out!  This first one uses the Ride With Me Bundle, it's such a cute bundle I want to play with it more.  How sweet is this card for any guy in your life or anyone really!
This card is so pretty and you could easily substitute ANY DSP that you love.  I love the Magnolia Lane DSP, especially this pattern.  Don't forget some of our DSP's are on sale this month, Buy 3 Get 1 Free.  Shop the sale now!  
This card might be my favorite.  I love Gorgeous Grape but seriously this pocket card, EEEEEEKKKKK!!!  So cute!!!!  You could also add a gift card to the pocket too!
Don't forget to decorate your card in the pocket too.  Extra love for all!!!  But seriously those purples!  LOVE!!!
Finally, the sweet walrus.  If you don't have the We'll Walrus Be Friends Set yet.  YOU NEED IT!!! Cutest images! Cutest greetings, seriously what else could you ask for!?!  Watch for a post soon sharing more about Donna's visit.  I have LOTS to share this week so don't miss anything!
