Leadership Gifts

One of the traditions of going to a Stampin' Up! event is taking small handmade gifts for your roommates, downline, upline, etc. This year I had picked up some small items that had cupcakes on them so decided to use the Build a Cupcake punch. I crimped some Chocolate Chip card stock for the paper cups and coordinated the colors of the circles and the "sparkles" on the cupcake icing with the colors of the gifts inside the bag. And of course, put some chocolate truffles in as well

Leadership was absolutely fantastic! I can't wait to share with you! Make sure to check back in throughout the week!

Love this idea!

We made this Valentine card at Hostess Club this week. To make this project, seal up a medium envelope and punch one end with the Scallop Edge Border punch. Stamp and embellish as desired. It's hard to see in the photo but for the inside piece, I used a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of card stock, adhered some hearts punched with the Heart to Heart punch on the left side, then ran the piece through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice embossing folder. It looks like the hearts are part of the card stock.

Happy New Year!!

My New Year's resolution is to . . . post more often!! Another episode of Where's Susan? has ended!
I hope all of you have had a wonderful memory filled Christmas and New Year with your family and friends! Another year has begun and with it, a new Occasions Mini catalog, filled with absolutely fabulous stamps and accessories! I have been playing with some of the new items, including this new Sizzix Petal Cone Bigz die.

After die cutting the Very Vanilla card stock, I ran the pieces through the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder to give it some texture. The scalloped pieces were die cut using the Springtime Vintage designer series paper.

If you have not received our copy of the Occasions Mini catalog, please let me know and I will get one out to you!
