Stamp Club Gift

August saw the end of our Stamp club, though another one is starting in September.  For the final meeting in August I made all the girls a little handbag and put some bits and pieces & chocolates inside.  These bags are so cute, I think we will make these at the next technique class. I saw this idea made by Tina White a fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator.

Here's the side view.

This is how i looks when you open it up.  I used velcro to fasten it.

I have been outside taking some photos, but when I came in to upload them my camera battery went flat.   So now I have to wait for that to recharge. I'll be back, but maybe not today, we will see.  I am suposed to be designing cards for the next stamp a stack!

Bye for now.

New IB&C Launch Nights

Hi everyone,

For those of you who didn't make it to one of my Launch Nights here are some pictures of what we made.

I really wish I took some photos of everyones bagalopes.  This is mine below, but everyone's looked different.  We all used the new DSP Just Add Cake'. There are so many different colours in this set they all ended up being very varied. The flowers were made with the "Blossom Party" originals die.  I love them, don't you?

This card below was made with Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla and a little bit of Peach Parfaitt card stock.  The ribbon is the new Scallop Dots Ribbon, the stamps are the butterfly from 'Summer Solstice' and the sentiment is from 'Happiest Birthday Wishes' (hostess set). The embossed border is the Tulip Border embossing folder and the bottom edge is decorated using the Eyelet Border Punch. A simple yet stunning card.

Finally this card I saw on SCS and thought it was a great way to not only show off the new stamp set Pennant Parade and the matching Petite Pennants Builder Punch, but also the gorgeous new In Colours.

I think everyone who came along had a good time and liked all the projects we made.  They also loved their new Idea Book and Catalogue.  It is a lovely catalogue and full of gorgeous things.  Thanks to everyone who did come along and to everyone who placed an order. I appreciate your support.

The card below is another card made using the 'Summer Solstice' set. I made this following a tutorial by Michelle Zindorf who is a fabulous artist, cardmaker & SU Demo in the USA. The card stock I used are Baja Breeze, Whisper White and Island Indigo. the DSP is the retired 'Newsprint'. This card makes me think I really need to do more colouring in.  It really is very satisfying and theraputic (sp?)  Especially when you have a master like Michelle Zindorf leading you every step of the way.

It's a beautiful afternoon here, I should get outside and take some more photos of sample cards I made using the pre order products I got from the new catalogue.  More goodies should be arriving next week, I can't wait for that, and I'm already working on another order.  I'm sooooo bad!!!

Hope you enjoyed seeing these things.  Leave a comment and let me know what you think. I might be back a little later with more photos.
