Retiring List

The Stampin' Up! Retired Accessories List was revealed last week with many items leaving the scene. Make sure you place your order for these products before they are gone for good. Some items have been greatly reduced in price and are quite a steal while others are already sold out. All these retiring products are creating quite a stir. Retiring products mean lots of new and fresh items are to come in the new Idea Book and Catalog.

SAB Class - I totally CASED it.

The wonderful thing about being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator is all the amazing resources available to us. I have been pressed for time lately with the kid's sports activities, auction commitments and everyday life. When it came time for my Sale-A-Bration class, I turned to Stampin' Connection ( a SU website that allows demonstrators to share projects, discussions and support each other in many ways) for project ideas. I found two that were perfect for what I had in mind and CASEd ( Copy And Share Everything) both projects.

The first card is an almost complete copy of a card created by Elizabeth Price, you can see her fabulous  work here. She is so talented! I didn't put any bling on the card as she did, but added an extra element with the green medallion flower. I really liked her fresh, clean design and application of ribbons on this card. 

The set of 3x3 mini cards was inspired by Robin Boyer. Her cards featured the Elementary Elegance frame embossed in white on colored card stock. I decided to mix it up a bit and stamp the frame on Newsprint Designer Series Paper and added a Fancy Favor Box carrier for the cards.

Tilt Card for UStampwithDawnandFriends

This is another series of cards that I created for UStampwithDawnandFriends ( I have 3 sets). Here I combined the Up Up and Away stamp set with Attic Boutique Designer Series Paper. The "Cool Moves" this card make is the image of the balloon "tilts" or rocks back and forth. Join us for more Cool Moves by clicking the blinkie below
