Fabulous Florets - Potential Swap

Hi Stampers!

Whenever I get ready to go an event like a Regional, I sit down at my craft table and create a bunch of potential swaps.  Sometimes I reproduce them all, sometimes I just choose one.  For the Baltimore regional that I attended a couple of weeks ago, I had designed 4 potential swaps, but I only had the time to mass produce one of them.  To see which swap made the final cut, click HERE.

This was one of my potential swaps using my favorite flower set - Fabulous Florets!

It's a very simple design but has a lot of collage stamping!

Stampin' Supplies:
Card Stock: Whisper White, Calypso Coral
Designer Series Paper: Brights Collection DSP Stack
Stamps: Made for You, Fabulous Florets
Ink: Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral
Punches: Curly Label
Other: Sponge Dauber

Another Round Array

Hi Stampers!

While I'm off filling my face with delicious gelato, I'm leaving you a little bit of stamping goodness to enjoy.  This is another card featuring the A Round Array stamp set.  I love this image from the set which reminds me of both a doily and a snowflake....hmmmm... keep that in mind for the winter season cards!

I'm going to miss the More Amore Designer Series Paper.  Don't forget the Spring Catalog Sales Period ends on May 31st, so if you have had your eye on a product in the catalog don't wait too long to order it!

Stampin' Up! Baltimore Regional

Hi Stampers!

I spent Friday night and all day Saturday down in Baltimore, MD for the Stampin' Up! East Coast Spring Regional.  These events are always a ton of fun.  And the swapping!  Oh, the swapping!  So much fun.  I didn't have a whole lot of free time to create tons of swaps.  I only made 24, but that was enough for me.  I received such beautiful work in return.  I also had one lady tell me that she was hoping she could find me to swap with because she liked my design.  I was so happy about that because my design aesthetic tends to be on the clean and simple side and I always think that others like very heavily embellished cards.  Anyway, it made me so happy!  I also got to meet Shannon West, who I love, and Brian Pilling.  I was very starstruck.  My fellow demos would understand!

I also got a peek at a bunch of new products from the upcoming catalog and I got to see all of the new In Colors for 2013-2015.  You are not going to be disappointed!  The new catalog goes live on June 1st!

I stayed right in the Inner Harbor and here is the view from the top floor of my hotel.

Pretty, huh?

Here is the swap I made for the event:

Because it is Stampin' Up!'s 25th birthday, we had an afternoon cupcake break!

Yum!  I chose vanilla cake with vanilla frosting.  Obviously, I had no self control and began eating the icing on my way back to my seat.

Here is my swap on the swap display board.  So exciting!
