I'm so glad that we were able to go to the Briar Patch Marketplace yesterday. I was able to talk to the lady in charge and she's going to add me to her vendor list so that I can have a booth in the Fall! I'm so excited! There were only a couple people who had paper crafts, so I'm really excited to be part of it. I have some many ideas and can't wait to get crafting!

I came across this card template from Dawn, she calls it the Paper Frame Card. I absolutely love it. It's simple and but it comes out SO pretty and you can do so much with it. I've already made a couple, but I was able to each one special in their own way :)

This one was for my co-worker on her last day. She's a great friend and I hope that we can keep in touch :)

This one is for my cousin's birthday :) I'm so super excited for her, this year will be filled with all the fun and excitement of planning her wedding!!! love you!! :)

Briar Patch Marketplace

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. Things have been SO busy!  Here are some updates:

I'm totally LOVING my Stampin' Up! stuff :) I really love how all the paper, ink, and ribbon all coordinate :) I'm going to my first demonstrators meeting in a couple weeks so I'm trying to figure out what card I'm going to make for everyone. I got the Big Shot and I love it! :)

I'm going to check out Briar Patch Marketplace today. This will be my first Arts and Crafts fair. One of my coworkers told me about it and I'm so excited! I spoke with one of the people in charge there and she's bringing a contract for me to look over. Hopefully this will bring me closer to achieving my goal of being able to sell my projects! :)

I've made some cards lately, but here's the one that's uploaded. It's for my coworker's birthday last week :) can you tell he likes Apple?

I have been waiting all week and I finally got it! My Stampin' Up starter kit arrived today and I can't wait to play with all the new supplies I got. I was so excited that I took pictures of all the stuff. I even put all my new stamps together and labeled all of the stamps, ink pads, and all the other tools I got too :) ... if you would like to place a Stampin' Up order and receive the preferred pricing, please let me know so that I can get that for you :)

I'll post up the pictures another time (I haven't uploaded them yet).

Oh another note, here is a birthday card that I put together for my co-worker, Sarah :) For a short period of time we shared an office, and for a short period of time she was even my "boss" lol. I hope you had a wonderful birthday Sarah, you deserve it! :)

I used tweezers to try and hold the cad shut so that you would be able to see the contrast :)
 Have a good night everyone!

Happy Crafting :)

Stampin' Up Birthday Cards

Hi Everyone!

I'm finally posting the cards that I made at the first workshop I ever went to! Yes, it was a Stampin' Up workshop :) It was a Make and Take workshop so you make two cards of each, the theme this time was Birthday Cards. Don't be surprised if some people will actually get these lol. Here you go!

The samples were much prettier, but I couldn't follow directions! I'm still happy with the way they turned out. Also, just like I mentioned in my previous post, I've become a Stampin' Up demonstrator, so please contact me if you would like to order anything! They have so much stuff and you'll definitely have so much fun with them all. in order to get the preferred pricing you MUST order through a demonstrator, and I would love help you out! :)

Stampin' Up!

I know I said I would post pictures from the workshop I went to a couple weeks ago, but it's late and I just wanted to give a little update.

I went to another workshop tonight and I officially became a Stampin' Up Demonstrator! I'm so excited and can't wait for this new and exciting time. If anyone needs any craft supplies or anything from Stampin' Up please let me know and I'll put in the order for you with the preferred pricing :)

Happy Crafting Everyone! :)

My Pink Stamper Challenge

My Pink Stamper is on a the Cricut cruise right now but she still posted a challenge :) Here it is...

Challenge:  Any project using a feathered friend.  LOL!! 

I decided to post an owl I made before. I'm not sure it's supposed to be a project made just for this challenge so I thought I would submit a card I made a while ago for Rocio. She used to volunteer where I work and we shared an office :) I made this for her birthday. 

I think this was the first round card I made. It was a little challenging, but still fun :)

Enjoy! :)

The Big Apple

HAPPY NATIONAL CRAFT MONTH! :) I hope everyone has at least one craft project this month :)

I was supposed to post this over an hour ago but I lost track of time. These two cards were for my sister's co-workers who leaving. I thought of the Good Luck one while she came up with the design for the Big Apple one.

This one was SO simple, but I really like the design. I just used some clear stamps that I bought at Micheal's then punched it out using a scalloped square :)
I'm so excited that my sister designed this one. I got the sky line from the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge, and I don't remember where I got the apple from.

On to other news, I posted a comment on My Pink Stamper and I got an email from someone named Grace. However, it went to my spam folder and as I was clicking "Delete Forever" I noticed that it wasn't actually spam and that I should probably read it... but it was TOO LATE! I was so upset that I deleted it, I even looked it up to see if it could be recovered, no luck :( So, if the person that emailed me from my comment on My Pink Stamper is reading this, please email me again.

For my next post I'll show you all the cards I made at the workshop I went to last week. I have a new love for Stampin' Up products :) I can't wait to attend more workshops!

Oh and CONGRATULATIONS to the new parents to a beautiful baby boy, Reanne and Aaron!!

Have a great night everyone!
