Letterpress plates

December 4, 2010

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the letterpress plates that Stampin Up has for the big shot!

Here are two pictures of  things I have done with them.  First I found a nice 8X8 shadow box frame at a craft store and made the Halloween design.  Then once that one was done the light bulb went on and I realized I could just swap out paper in the frame for all the different holidays.  I know….DUH!  But it really wasn’t the original plan.  So then I made the next one for Christmas and LOVE it even more than the Halloween one.  I can’t wait to play with the design for Valentines day!











Some recent projects

December 4, 2010

Here is a card I made for a swap with my fellow “Dazzling Diamonds”, our stampin up demonstrator group.  We are having a Christmas party this afternoon and this is my swap.  When I get back I will show you some of the things I receive in the swap.  These ladies make such cute cards!


This card uses the  treat cup, Sweet Snowglobe Stamp, basic gray ink, very vanilla and old olive card stock, old olive 5/8 in grosgrain ribbon, Jolly Holiday DSP, and lots of dazzling diamonds glitter!


two new cards

May 21, 2010

I made two new cards today, one is a thank you card with the Elements of Style stamp set and the other is a fun card I made for a swap its made with the Tropical Party stamp set.  The tropical card is a copy of one I saw in this months Stampin Success with a few changes.

National Scrapbooking Month Travel Album

May 9, 2010

Here are pictures of a 6X6 album that I made as an example for my Scrapbooking event next weekend.   Those of you who are registered for the event but chose to used the Island Oasis DSP you will used the same layouts but with your DSP and cardstock.  Is gonna look great no matter what you went with!

In this picture the bottom left is the title page to the album and bottom right is the end page.

Here are some other pages in random order.  You canfo course put them in an album in whatever order you want.  I noticed that I forgot to ink the edges of all the pages.  Its something that can be skipped but I like the look on the Kraft paper so I will go back and do that.  Also once the pictures get put into this I am sure there will be some new embelishments added.

Island Oasis Scrapbook page

May 4, 2010

A quick picture of a scrapbook page I made for our demonstrator meeting.  It was a short demonstration on progressive scrapbook pages.  It started as a 6X6 page, then turned into the 8.5X11 page and then ended up as a 12X12.  There are a couple of stamps from the new summer mini on the page as well.  I used Tropical Party, In a Word, and letters from the Jumble alphabet.  The paper flowers are made with the new Stampin Up Island Floral Bigz Die for the sizzix.

Here are the cards we made today……..The first one uses the Chocolate Bunny Stamp, the Tiny Tag Punch as well as the new Border punch from Sale-a-bration.  I cased this one from the stampin up demo website

This next one was cased from one of the blog I read every day!  Chic N Scratch I love her ideas and cute projects!  So did the ladies today 🙂 This card is made with the sale-a-bration stamp set Picnic Parade and the word window punch.

This last card was demonstrated at our SU demonstrator meeting a couple weeks ago by Heather and her card was adorble!  This is my version of her card.  We used the Very Vintage wheel, scalloped circle punch, small ovale and scalloped oval punch, and LOTS of shimmer paint!!
