Last day of Sale a bration

Stampin’ Up! Sale a bration

 franswapb

Today is the last day of Sale a bration … and I’m not ready for it to be over!   

I arrived home safely from the stamping retreat last night.  It was a blast and I’ll definitely be planning one for Overland Park, Kansas.  I’m thinking early October but it will totally depend on the hotel.  I’m excited and extremely nervous!! 

I don’t have any stamping projects of my own to share with you … so I’ll show you several Sale a bration ideas from the swaps I’ve received.  I was going to post these over the weekend but I have a hard time playing when I’m working and working when I’m playing … you know what I mean?

The first card at the top of my blog is a card from Fran and used several Sale a bration items.  They include the Banner Blast stamp set, Banner Punch, Decorative Dots Embossing Folder.

Sale a bration ends Monday night

 Sale a bration ends at midnight on Monday.

And …. I’ll be out of town the rest of the week ….. so ….. I’m going to share some swaps I received from some other Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators.

Today I’ll share two real quick and the first one is from one of my downline girls .. Leslie.

Isn’t her card super cute?

leslieswapb

She used the Banner Blast Stamp Set  (133551 wood – 133554 clear) along with the Banner Punch (133519) .. both are on page 13 of the Sale a bration Catalog.

The next card is from Denise and she also used the Banner Blast Stamp Set with the See ya Later Stamp Set (133533 wood – 133536 clear) on page 16.

She told me that to make the line at the top .. she used a CD.  Good idea!!

Thanks for all the well wishes for my mother!!  It’s really hard because I’m 600 miles away and I could cancel my trip to the stamp retreat … but then I’d lose the money.  So, I’m headed to the stamping retreat and my sisters will keep me updated.  Decisions like this are always difficult.   If it were life or death I would head to Tennessee but the doctors think that they can do the other surgeries once she recovers.

Thanks & have a wonderful weekend!!

I’m sorry I don’t have a project to share with you today!! We were at the lake house during Spring Break and once I got home my mom was rushed to the hospital for emergency surgery (lots of phone calls and texts right now).  I really hope I have a project to share tomorrow!

Thanks & have a wonderful day!!

Chic  n  Clique 

Two weeks ago today Chic n Clique was launched … it has been everything I’ve dreamt & more!  I’m still learning the ropes and I really appreciate everything!  

One  Sheet  Wonder  Easter  Class

I’m happy to say my next Online Class is almost ready.  The theme is staying One Sheet Wonder and this time it’s Easter themed … I figure I’m on a roll so I’ll just keep going. (I’m already thinking Halloween and Christmas.)

I have to say the first One Sheet Wonder Class came to me a little easier.  The Easter one was a little more challenging because I wanted a box, a bag, something else 3d and a couple cards.  I finally did it … and as soon as I’m done with this blog post I’m going to silence my phones and film the videos.

Don’t forget Chic n Clique Premium Members will receive all my Online Classes Free.

Thanks & have a wonderful day!

Simple Easter Card

 babywevegrowneasterb

My project today is a simple easter card using the Baby We’ve Grown Stamp Set along with the Delightful Dozen Stamp Set

You can find the Baby We’ve Grown set in the Occasions Catalog and Delightful Dozen in the main Stampin’ Up! Catalog on page 27.

If you’re on my mailing list  … I sent you an Easter Card tutorial last week and this was my warm up card. I decided against using this one because it looks more like a baby card than an Easter Card.  So, if you’re looking for a welcome new baby card .. here ya go!  Just switch out Happy Easter with Congratulations (that greeting is also in the Delightful Dozen stamp set).

babywevegrowneasterc

Stampin’ Up! supplies I used on my Simple Easter card:

  • Stamps:  Baby We’ve Grown 133086(w) 133089(c), Delightful Dozen 128547(w) 122652(c)
  • Ink:  Black Stazon, Pink Pirouette Marker
  • Card Stock: Pink Pirouette, 100730 Whisper White

Sale  a  bration 

You’ve got 7 days left of Sale a bration ….. can you believe it’s almost over?

Thank  YOU

We had a wonderful break at the lake and I’m so happy that there weren’t any emergencies while I was away.  I rested and watched movies for two days straight and every time someone ask me to do something I said “I’m on vacation” …they’re sure glad I’m not saying that anymore (I said it more than I should have).

It will take me a few days to get back into the swing of things and guess what …. I’m headed out of town again on Friday.   This time it’s for educational purposes … Now that I’ve started Chic n Clique I’ve decided to also hold a retreat and the best way for me to learn is to actually see one … so I’m headed to a stamping retreat.  I’m super excited!!

Thanks & have a wonderful day!

Easter Hexagon Box

 easterhexagonboxb

My project today is the Easter Hexagon Box and we made it last week during my live stream on UStream.

We took the Hexagon Box I made previously .. and shortened it.  I LOVE the smaller size.

On the original box we used the Eggstra Spectacular stamp set and on the video I used the Baby We’ve Grown stamp set.

The first box is Pistachio Pudding and other one is Baked Brown Sugar.

Here’s the video on how to make the Easter Hexagon Box:

Easter Treat Holder and Card

 easterbagandcardb

My project today is a Easter Treat Holder and a matching Easter Card.

Here’s a look at the side of the Treat Holder .. you could use Easter grass instead of the crinkle paper.

easterbasketside

It will hold two of the Cadbury Cream Eggs or several small pieces of candy.

I used the Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper along with the Eggstra Spectacular Stamp Set … both can be found in the Occasions Catalog.

Since this pattern of DSP comes in two colors .. I made one set with Island Indigo and one set with Pear Pizzaz.  Which is your favorite?

I’ve got an Easter Candy Box for you today  … inside it holds two nice size pieces of candy .. or several little ones.  I should have taken a picture of it open … sorry about that!  You can see it in the video.  Or maybe next week I’ll share with a different design.

I used the Polka Dot Parade Stamp Set with Old Olive and the stamp set is Eggstra Spectacular.  It’s in the Occasions Catalog and it’s one of two sets that I’ll be using for my Easter crafts.
