My First Workshop Cards

Ok I'm holding 3 workshops in 3 days - YIKES!
SO if you live in Saratoga Springs, go to Marla's house on Thursday April 10th at 7 pm (she'll send out invitations next week :)

If you live in West Jordan - go to my mother in law's house on Friday April 11th at 7 pm -

If you live in MAGNA - Go to Sheri's house :) on Saturday April 12th at 1:00 pm -

You're not getting address from me :) BUT if you know who they are - they'll be sending out their invitations next week :) YEAH!!

SO what are we making? Here's a picture -

A WAY CUTE Tart and Tangy 3x3 note card and box set :) Making 3 of the note cards and the box to put them in - Then if there is time we'll make another matching card - and POSSIBLY a scrapbook page to match - Sorry no pictures there :(

I REALLY wanted to use the Heartfelt Thanks set that I got in the starter kit - I hated that set at first but once I got it down with the stamp a ma jig - I LOVE that set!

If anyone wants to host a workshop - I have a way cute scrapbook page and 4 cards using that set :)
Here's the sample of the scrapbook page :)

Pretty huh! I LOVE this flower! It's so pretty! And I have a wheel that goes really nicely with with - in fact I made 2 cards using it! And of course my 2 little girls are the perfect picture for that set :) LOVE IT!

I'm also working on some boy scrapbook pages to demo - I just can't find any pictures of my boys that work with the stamp set - I KNOW I have some - just can't find them yet :) I have too many disks to go through :)

Anyways - so that's what I"ve been working on - I have samples from Heartfelt Thanks - Greeting's Galore - 3 for you Punch box and Tart and Tangy -

Coming up soon will have Loads of Love and Define your Life - and still playing with so many scallops even though Sell-a-bration is over - and they're retired -I still love that set :)

Thanks for looking!

Prizes :)

Ok well since becoming a Demo - I've been waiting oh so patiently on getting my kit (It was Mailed TODAY!!!!!)

I've been working on some raffle drawing prizes - So if you book a workshop with me - you can win something out of this basket ok basket wont load but here are some pictures of what's IN the basket :)

Ok FIrst picture is a mini post it's holder/key chain -
I made a bunch of these in different colors - Green - turquoise - pink and yellow :)
- also giving some to my neices for Easter :)
Retired set Basic Backgrounds with LSBS DP for the centers and ribbons :)

NEXT I have This little note book - while I was at Walmart I found a bunch of them for like 37 cents each - so I grabbed a handful :)

Next is a bigger Post it's holder like I made for my kid's teachers for Christmas -
I used Close to Cocoa , and Tempting Turquoise DP from SU!

and Finally I have this cute little nugget card box - I used some Easter candy even though my workshop wont be until AFTER Easter - but it matched :)
I used the Happy heart day set and colored it with my pastels and blender pens - I don't recommend using the blender pens on regular card stock - SU! Whisper WHite is Awesome! Regular card stock tears easily and makes a big mess - blach -

The hostess will get first pick out of the basket before the workshop starts - then I'll draw names for other's to win something :) FUN HUH!

I made a few of the same things to go in for a raffle for another workshop - still don't have one booked but thinking about holding an open house - or trying to coax my friend into having one at her house - we'll see though :)

That's it for tonight - I'll be working on a few other things tomorrow :)

Thanks for looking!

I'm a DEMO!!!!! and After Valentine's Day Stuff

Today I went over to Jamie's house to sign up to be an official Stampin' Up Demonstrator!
I'm SO excited! I've been saving my money for almost a year now - with school clothes shopping - Christmas - and a few little odd's and Ends - My money that I was saving started dissapearing! I was so sad! BUT with the special they're having for the Sell-A-Bration month - I was able to save up !! WHOO HOO!!! So it's official now :) I'm the newest Independant Demonstrator in Utah :) Wanna book a workshop :)
Send me an email -

Ok After Valentine's Day stuff -
I can offically let people know that I'm Pregnant again! Yes AGAIN! Baby #6 - She's coming a little earlier then we thought she would - we wanted to wait until Collin was a little closer to 2 before we got pregnant - but - he'll be about 19 weeks when she's born - Oh well - life happens :) She'll be here in September - not sure the due date yet - My first dr's appt is Monday - so check back later if you're interested :)

It's been pretty hectic around here though - we all got sick for awhile and I haven't had much time to do anything - but I did get a few things done -

This was my neices' birthday card - I totally Cased it but I don't know WHO I cased it from - SORRY!!!! But I love it :) Isn't she cute??

Next is a get well card - When I said we've been sick - I didn't mean just my family here - My Mother in law and my Sister in law's WHOLE family got it (funny - we weren't around eachother for a month and we all got sick on the same week!)
I CASED this card from Dawn's Stampin Thoughts - She did a cute job making it and I've been looking for more ideas to use this set with - So I cased it :)

THEN..... I made this Yesterday using a template that Rachelle sent me - WAY CUTE! and way easy to make - I made 9 of them in less then an hour - lots of scoring - but worth it :)

WELL That's about all I have time for today - Time to get the kiddie's in bed and check out some new SU! Demo stuff :)

Thanks for looking!
