1am Birthday Card

Good "Morning" Everyone!

I'm SO sleepy but I really wanted to post this before I forget again. I made this birthday card for my Aunt last week. I couldn't figure out what to make so it was taking me forever to put together a card. I finally put a card together around 1am! Needless to say, I was a little sleepy, so don't look to closely because I don't think anything I put on this card is straight! lol I think I'll try this same layout again, but this time when I'm not so tired.
I used Whisper White for the card and ribbon. The card base is Pear Pizzaza. The top strip is Elegant Eggplant cardstock, and the one that runs perpendicular to it is from the DSP Lap of Luzury. The stamp is from the set called Engraved Greetings.
I'm so excited for my first workshop this Saturday. My upline will be doing a demonstration and a quick card. Then I'm going to take over with my own card. I'm so excited that I already got all my stuff prepped for my card :)

Anyway, tomorrow is going to be a busy day, so I better get some rest. Good night everyone! :)

Bright Colors

Good Evening Everyone!

On Friday I mailed out a card for my fiance's mom's birthday (her birthday was yesterday, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!). I had the hardest time making this card, though! I was on the phone with my fiance trying to get his input on what to make, but he fell asleep!!! All I got form him was that his mom likes bright colors. So I figured hot pink was safe! haha :) Here is the card I made for her:

I designed this card around the color Melon Mambo :) I LOVE this color!
This whole card is made from Stampin' Up! products, that's why everything coordinates. I used Whisper White for the card, it's a regular A2 size card. For the base I used paper from the Designer Series Ice Cream Parlor, I used Melon Mambo cardstock for the next level, then Whisper White again for the center piece. I used a stamp from the Valentine Defined stamp set on the Whisper White then sponged on some Pear Pizzazz ink on the bottom. Finally, I used the wish big stamp from the Short & Sweet stamp set, and some embossing powder and my heat gun to make it shine :)

If you haven't already done so, please leave a comment, become a follower, and RSVP for my FIRST workshop on April 23. Please check my Stampin' Up! website for more information :) regalcrafts.stampinup.net

I hope you all enjoyed the card!

Have a good night! :)

Great Weekend :)

What a great weekend! It all stared after work on Friday. I went straight to Big Shot club, hosted by my upline from Stampin' Up! we made some REALLY cute things with the new petal cone die (Click here to order). I love Big Shot club, because you get to make more than cards, you can make SO many other paper crafts and embellishments! Saturday I went to my VERY FIRST demonstrator meeting. We made some really cute bags made out of envelopes and a birthday card. We also did a card swap, demonstrations, and the learned about new promotions at Stampin' Up! (oh and, the clearance rack was just updated!!!!).

Sunday was SO busy and so fun! BBQ and crafting?! It was GREAT! I really loved how the envelope bags were so quick and simple. So, I brought all the material that I would need to the bbq so that everyone could make one. I think it went really well and everyone made such cute bags! After a little cleaning, the crafting was continued at my house with my sister and her best friend. My weekend started and ended with crafting and was filled with lots of friends and laughter :) It was great! Now, if only I could have a day to recuperate! lol

OH! In case you have noticed, my Stampin' Up! website is now up and running. I would LOVE to be your demonstrator. Please feel free to contact me for more information. Also, if you want to receive the "Preferred Price" on the Stampin' Up! website, just select me as your demonstrator and you will qualify to receive that discounted price:) Thanks for your continued support everyone!!!

I made little Thank You boxes for everyone that came to the BBQ :) This was before I put the candy in them, I had lots of fun trying to build things with boxes :)

I didn't use Stampin' Up! paper (eek!) because I didn't have enough to make them all, but I did use one of So Many Thanks stamp from Stampin' Up! It's one of my new favorites :)

YAY!!! They're all filled with candy!

Last but not least, my uncle had surgery today and I made him this card to let him know that we're thinking of him and keeping him in our prayers. I used the Lap of Luxury Designer Series Paper, Trendy Trees stamp set, and Concord Crush cardstock.
Have a great week everyone!
