October weSTAMP Meeting

Sorry for this being posted so late, I have had trouble with wordpress. I have lots ready to be posted, but for some reason I wasn’t able to add my pictures for a while…Today it worked!!


weSTAMP was really fun AGAIN! I just love these meetings. We have such a fun talented group! The best part is that it just keeps growing! It is always fun to meet new people!

Here are the swaps! They are BEAUTIFUL!! We have a new lady to our group, Cheryl. She did an AMAZING job for her first time! Lucky to have her!



This is my card. I used the Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder. I love that it was easy! I added stickles to the snowflakes, you can’t really see them in the picture, but it really is a very blingy card. I also added a rhinestone to the word Season.

Be back with more to post soon! ūüôā



September weSTAMP

I know I always say this, but WHAT A GREAT MEETING! I have been a part of a few other sales type companies, and we always got together for meetings….but NONE were as FUN as weSTAMP!! I LOVE these Ladies. They are so fun and talented and just plain GREAT to be around. I always get home so late because¬†it is just hard to leave!! Nancy and Lorri put so much effort into these meetings. I think it is also great that everyone chips in to make it a success!

The Make and Take was really neat because we got to try out the new Big Shot that Stampin’ Up sells! WOW! It can go EVERYTHING!!! This baby cut everything we put in it!¬† Coke cans, Vinal, Cork, Denim…you name it! Ginny put together this cute little book so we could show our customers some samples. It was pretty fun to mess around with!

Here are the Swaps. The theme this month was a Halloween or Fall 3d item. WOW!! I LOVE THEM ALL!!


Can’t wait till next month!!

weSTAMP July Meeting

¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† I started stamping a million years ago by taking some classes in a little store in Downtown Glendale. I went to my first Stampin’ Up! class when my daughter was¬† 5 months old (she is now 6) and I fell in love with it! I went to only two Stampin’ Up classes before my friend Wendy signed up to be a Demonstrator. I am so glad she did! She was the best teacher! I loved her style and she made such beautiful cards! I joined her club and attended her workshops until she said she was moving to Virginia…I was so sad that I decided to become a Demonstrator. I signed up¬†on the first of July last year, and I believe she moved a¬†week or so later. I never really got to work with her in person.¬† I¬†have talked to her on the phone often and she is always so willing to help me. I am so thankful!¬†

¬†¬†¬†¬† This week I was so¬†excited that¬†Wendy came for a visit!¬†She and I went to our weSTAMP meeting at Nancy Riley’s house. It was so much fun.¬† Nancy and Lorri did a wonderful job with the meeting!

 Nancy did the make and take and it was cute and fun! We made these little Bag Boxes. Everyone did such a good job!

They we got to tour Nancy’s craft space….I have already talked about my envy there….I was glad that I wasn’t the only one saying wow every time she opened a cabinet! It was fun and very educational. I felt like we were on a little field trip!

We did the Door Prize. I made it this time, so no chance of having to make it next month! I forgot to take a picture of it, but you can see it on Lorri’s Blog here.

Then, we swapped. Every month these get better and better. There¬† is so much pressure for me when I am making mine. I am so worried it won’t be pretty enough! I like mine this time. Our theme was to use a background stamp or roller. Thanks to Ginny I was able to use a background stamp. I don’t own any that are current.

Here is my card! I kind of used last weeks sketch challenge for my start.

Recipe: STAMPS: Pick a Petal, Happy Everything, Sanded,  INK:Versamark, Jet Black Stazon, PAPER:Glossy Paper, Basic Black, Summer Sun, EMBELLISHMENTS:Black Button, Black Gingham Ribbon, White Embossing Powder.

I embossed the background stamp to give it more texture.

Wendy’s Card.¬† I love that she used the hole punch to make the little black circles. I they look like little brads. Clever!

Lorri’sCard. WOW! Her’s are the cards that my husband say’s WOW over! Thanks to her I may be getting a cuttlebug for my birthday! I’ll let you know!

Nancy’s Card. Nancy musy have known that my daughter would be turing 6 in a couple of weeks!! So cute!

Adriana’s Card. I love the cards for little kids. I have over 20 nieces and nephews and I ALWAYS need a¬† card for one of them! So Cute!

Diana’s Card. I haven’t used the pretties kit yet.¬† I love that she died the flower purple. I am glad she told us how to do it. I may have to try this!

Terri’s Card. Beautiful choice of colors! It is pretty on the inside too.

Ginny’s Card.¬† Very Blingy! I got a lot of comments from friends on Ginny’s card. They love all the glitter. I do too.

Well thanks for looking!

We started out with this fun make n take. It is a CASE of this card here. It is using the chalkboard technique from Splitcoaststampers . Click here to check it out! I love this technique and I have been looking for an idea to use it with. This was perfect.


My favorite part of the night is always the swap. This is such a talented group of ladies! I love seeing what they come up with. I am always feeling a little pressured when I am designing my cards because I am worried I will disappoint! I hope I didn’t!
