where have I been???

I apologize that I haven't been keeping up with blogging in the last week or two.  I have been busy with multiple birthday's in our house as well as looking at finals for school and completing projects, papers, etc.  I think within the next week I should be able to get back to it as most of my tests and papers are due by the 13th of December.

I'm itching to get back to my stamping desk that's for sure!

Check out Stampin' Success

Every other month I am at my mailbox waiting to get my fingers on a magazine that Stampin' UP! provides for its demonstrators called "Stampin' Success" because it is filled with project ideas, business ideas, advice, and recognition for demonstrators.

Stampin' UP! has decided to make a portion of this magazine available to our customers!  You have to check it out... here!

Do you like what you see?

This is just a small sampling of the magazine that demonstrators receive every other month.

If you want to see more ideas call me and we'll plan a party. You can gather your friends for a girls’ night out. And if you want to receive the full magazine in the mail every other month I can help you join. Just ask!

I love the support that I receive from Stampin' UP! as well as all of the ways that they educate us on new products or new techniques.  It is a great company to do business with!

At Stampin’ Up! we’re all about creativity. Try us out.

It's Mario Time

Our son is turning 7 in a couple weeks and originally asked for a Pirate Party, then it was Angry Birds (to which I thought GREAT because I have a bunch of ideas) and then he finally decided on a Mario birthday party.  I checked out our Stampin' UP! demonstrator website to see what others have created for a Mario birthday card or invitation and while some people had good ideas I just didn't love any of them.  So I scoured the web and pinterest and still didn't get much for ideas.  There were some pictures of the original Super Mario Bros game on Pinterest and that is where my inspiration came from.

It was a moderate amount of work, definitely not the hardest card I've ever made (I had to make 15 of them and needless to say my family is going to get an e-mail with a picture of the card as an invitation!) but it was worth it when he got home from school today and said "Mom, that's totally awesome."

And so without further ado...

I think it turned out really good.  Now I have to figure out how to make the cake!

Stamp sets:  Send Me Soaring, Lots of Thoughts, Retro Alphabet Upper
Paper:  Pool Party, Whisper White, Real Red, Garden Green, Soft Suede, Well Worn DSP
Ink:  Baja Breeze classic stampin' pad, So Saffron classic stampin' pad
Accessories:  Square Lattice textured impressions folder, Big Shot, 3/4 in circle punch, 1/4 in circle punch, 5 petal flower punch, scallop oval punch, slit punch

Thanks for checking back...

I had planned to post a picture of a card made with the "Blue Ribbon" set that is on sale until November 28th yesterday.  Well, when my husband got home from work he said he had to go help a friend skin his deer.  By the time I got the kids in bed I was so tired I decided to go to bed myself!  Here is the long awaited card...

Now, I know it is a more manly card but it is perfect for my husband's birthday which is coming up in a couple weeks.  I'll be sure to post a more "cute" card soon!  It's always nice to have a man card idea in your back pocket anyway!

You can purchase any of the items I used to create this card today in my online store.  The Blue Ribbon stamp set is currently 25% off.  If you're used to the wood mounted stamps the sale price is $21.71 and the clear mount set is $15.71. If you have any questions on today's project feel free to e-mail me!

stamp set:  Blue Ribbon (on sale right now through Nov 28th)
ink:  Soft Suede Classic Stamp Pad, Not Quite Navy Classic Stamp Pad
paper:  Not Quite Navy, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Well Worn DSP
accessories:  2 3/8 in scallop punch, 1 3/8 in circle punch, 1 1/4 in circle punch, 3/8 in twill tape
