It's almost Thanksgiving!

Here are some fun table decorations using the big shot die. Love the fun things you can do with the rosette!

Ornament Punch

I never got the coordinating stamp set - but this punch works wonderfully well on it's own. Brayering the bridal papers is a great way to get any color of paper that you like!

Quick, Cute and Easy

Here's a card we did at Stamp a Stack - totally inspired by one of the Stampin Up Regional projects. Celery and Red are actually quite a stunning Christmas color combo!

Autumn Trees

This was a card we did at Extra*Ordinary cards earlier this month. It was inspired by something I saw online. Gotta love stampin' spots - they are so versatile.

Thanks Theresa!

Isn't that the sweetest thing?? After a long week of work and getting home later than normal on Friday this was waiting for me in my mailbox. I love my stampin' friends......

My birthday is this weekend and I have a HUGE special going on for anyone interested in becoming a demonstrator, simply email for details!

More punch art

Here is a fun card we made at camp in November. It is quite remarkable how much you can do with punches.............and many more new punches are on the horizon!

Nov Big Shot, Dec classes and last call for punch racks!

Tonight is November Big Shot class - here is one of the projects that we will be making. I will try to get the remaining samples (as well as Nov camp and Stamp a Stack!) up over the next few days.

There are hardly any classes left for 2009 - the year has flown by! Here is what there is left to attend:
December Camp – Thursday Dec 3 – 2:00pm or Fri Dec 4 7pm
December Split Class – Dec 10th 7pm
Choose between Big Shot ($15) or Mini Stamp a Stack (20 fabulous tags/notecards 4 designs, 5 each) - $15
You can do one class and take the materials home to finish the second for $25 for both

In addition, I am taking the final orders EVER for punch racks for the current style. If you would like one they are $40 and will require that you pick them up. They should be ready in early December. Email if you would like more details.

Extra*Ordinary Cards - Oct

Here is another card from last week's class - it includes several shimmery bits that get lost in the photography, it is much prettier in person!

Finally Finished!

Over the weekend I worked on watching all the training videos and taking all the quizes for becoming certified on My Digital Studio. I passed all the quizzes (took lots of notes!), but I learn best by doing. We were required to submit one finished project as the final step. I wanted to do a page as well, so I could retain some of what I learned. Here they are - I am certain that I will look back on these like we do our first stamping projects and wonder "What the heck was I trying to achieve?" Not too sold on either of them, but sure had fun playing with the software!
The top one is a 6x6 card, I have ordered it, so those of you who attend my classes will get to see the real thing. The second is a 12x12 page (individual, not part of a book).
In the next few weeks I will be setting up a website for those of you who purchase the software from me where I can add tips and tricks that I learn along the way. Watch for it!

catching up!

Early fall was a blur to me - started my new job at the same time we were in the thick of golf season! Most days were spent at the office til 3 and then at the golf course til 8 - home to dinner and homework to get up at 5am and do it all again. Now that I am slowly getting caught back up, I see that there are a lot of projects we made that never made their way to here! So, while they may a bit out of season - I will put them on - hope you enjoy!
