Christmas card

Today I’m going to share one of my Christmas cards for this year. Every year I make my own cards. I make them through out the year so that I’m not crazy trying to get them done after Thanksgiving. I usually make 4 of the same cards and try to make 2 different designs a month. I’m behind this year, but that is another story LOL. Will hopefully catch up soon.

Creating… Birthday cards

On Wednesdays I meet with a GREAT group of Ladies. We meet for a couple of hours in the morning and share card and paper crafting ideas. There are 10 of us and it is amazing to see the stuff we share.

On the first Wednesday of the month we try to have a mini lesson of some sort. Usually we take turns and come up with something for the others to create. Well this month we did things a little different and had a Birthday Card Take- N- Make. Everyone was to create a CAS (clean and simple) card and then make kits for the others to make one for themselves.

It was so much fun and the cards were awesome. Now my stock of birthday cards is re-stocked. Yeah!


This is the card I came up with. I got the idea off Pintrest from here. I kept most everything the same.

I will post the other cards we made in the next day or two. Still can’t find the adapter for the camera so am having to take pictures with the IPad.

I’m almost finished with my craft room so will be posting that as well.



3D Bunny

I have mentioned before that I am a Stampin Up demonstrator. Well once a month we get together to share ideas and connect.

Every month we do a swap. The theme changes each month. This month’s  was any 3D item with a Spring, Easter or Mother Day theme.

Mine started off with these container from Target’s dollar bins.

This is what my desk looked like during the creative process!

And this is what I came up with.

I got the idea for the wheelbarrow here : Kim Score

The idea for the Bunny from here: Kim Score

I made 14 of them! Was a lot of fun.

Will show you what I got in return later.


Last Week

So I’ve been a little busy this last week. Today we leave to go to Denver. Will spend the night with some friends and then I fly out to Salt Lake City. I’m going to Convention!!!! I’m a Stampin’ Up  Demonstrator, and for the last 3 out of 4 years I’ve gone to our convention. It is a lot of fun. Get to see what is planned for the coming year. See examples of what can be done with our products. Do make and takes. Have workshops. And hang out with some great ladies.(Will give a full report when I get back.)

One of the fun things we do at Convention is swap. It is great fun. You make card fronts and then swap them with anyone else who has made cards. They also do 3D items. This year I made 100 card fronts to swap.

Yes that’s right 100. Some ladies do a lot more. I know a lady who has done over 300.  Now for my sanity I only do 100. I do 20 cards of 5 designs. (Would be too boring to do all 100 the same.)

This year I did 2 male cards. It seems like we mostly do card for women, so I decided to try something different. Besides how could I pass up using this stamp. (My husband rides dirt bikes, for those of you don’t know.)

Second male card

I love the bird in this one.


Fun doing these flowers.

Last design.

I also made a bag to carry my swaps around in. It was fun to make,  haven’t done much sewing for a while.

We also do want we call giftables for those who go to convention that are in our Downline. (Downlines are hard to explain, so just go with me here. :-))  This year we had to do 9!

This is what I made this year. I wanted to make something they could use. It is a birthday  reminder calendar.

Here is a view up close. each one used different paper, but had the same design.

and this is what it looks like inside.

So as you can see I had a very busy week,

and I haven’t even told you about making sure DH didn’t fall off the roof,

or the bread making I did. Maybe next time.LOL

Well off to pack. See you after Conference.
