Convention Gift

Stamps: Jumbo Outline ABC 109278, Defining Alphabet 109423, Everyday Flexible Phrases 104383 Inks: various Papers: Chocolate Chip, Bella Rose Accessories: Crystal Effects, brads, ribbons, Pretties Kit, ticket corner punch, scallop edge punch, tag corner punch, etc... Made entirely of Stampin' Up! products.   This darling little fold out album was made for me by my Manager, Sue. It was her custom gift to each of her downline attending Convention, and upline. So cute, so fun, and wow, the work that went into them. Sue, you rock.   Now wouldn't this be a great gift for a co-worker, or friend, just to say - I am thinking about you. I do.

UDI Friendship Swap

Stamps: Wonderful You 111181 Inks: Lovely Lilac Papers: Lovely Lilac, Lavender Lace, Old Olive, White Accessories: silver brad, scallop circle punch, circle punches, Old Olive ribbon, marker, dimensionals Only Stampin' Up! products were used in this card. This card was made for a UDI ( Utah Divas International ) dinner one evening during the 2008 SU! Convention. The card swap theme was Friendship using purple and white. This is the card I made for the swap (20+ gals, 1 guy). They are amazing ladies. So creative and fun and friendly. Check out their website sometime. Oh - sorry about the kitty paw in the picture. That is our one year old Matza. She thought it was her time to be photographed. Spoiled rotten furball!!! This card utilizes many layers. It was easy to cut and stamp. Adhering all the layers, well, um, I may have had to finish the card in the hotel room. um.... If you felt this card, it actually has some heft.

Seriously Now...

Stamps: Seriously Sassy 111056 (on Dormant list), Paisley Inks: Brocade Blue, Rose Red or Lovely Lilac Papers: White, Black, Only Orange, Regal Rose or Orchid Opulence Accessories: sponges, 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, Rhinestone Brads (not pictured well), ticket corner punch, piercing tool OK, ignoring the commentary from my daughter in the first picture (everyone is a critic!), this was one of my 2008 SU! Convention Swaps. Having trouble deciding which card base I liked better (purple or pink?) it was fairly fun and fast to do, not to mention mass produce. I made a total of 300 swaps for Convention this year. In return, I have tons of samples to now work with and choose from. 50 of these, 25 with each color base, came with me to Convention. Got to say, I am a little sad to see this stamp set on the Dormant list. You can still purchase it, and it's male conterpart, So Cool, for the duration of the catalog. Such fun stamp sets. So perfect for the tween / early teen crowd!
