Good morning friends!
It was a busy weekend here in my household. I had an excellent trip to Denver and managed to get myself and my friends safely there and back even in the snow. My friends even gave me the Golden Wheel award for my driving efforts. I think they white nuckled it all the way to Denver but we did get there safely for the Stamposium and had a great time. We did leave a little early because the weather was going to get worse which was a big FAT bummer. We were wide awake with THREE stops to Starbucks! I'm surprised I could drive.
I want to share with you some of the projects I shared at the Stamposium. Tara Bazata and her amazing downline put on a wonderful gig. We really enjoyed ourselves and met a bunch of GREAT demonstrators. My favorite part of these events is meeting other demonstrators. You become instant friends. SO FUN!
Here is a picture of my friend Christy and I.
I was presenting projects with the Big Shot. How can you not love this fantabulous tool???? It has made my stamping life so much GREATER. I worked with the Top Note Die, Lattice Die and the Circle #2 Die. Here are the projects I made:
This layout uses the Circles #2 Die Cut. It's perfect for all kinds of circles, but makes the prettiest posies. Well, that is the flower I am calling it. LOL! Love how buttons just add so much to a layout. I added felt flowers and a few fun brads for embellisments. This is an 8.5 x 8.5 layout.
This layout used two die cuts: Hearts & Brackets and Lattice Die Cut. Both are exclusive to Stampin' Up! and PERFECT for a scrapbooker. The Hearts were cut out using Stampin' Up!'s Long Board Chipboard and Felt. ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I love cutting felt. The Lattice Die was cut and you can see I made it twice it's normal size. So fun. I hope to make a video on how to do this as soon as Russ (camera dude) can free his travel schedule. 🙂 These are really simple layouts, but FUN!
Now, let me share with you some fun Birthday cards that were sent to me. They are so pretty and I am so thankful for my friends.
I have many more to share. I have to shoot more pics. It's time for me to get back to work for a little bit. So many things to do… not enough time.
