Maui Big Shots! Homework

Every 2 months the Maui Big Shots! (my downline) get together to share ideas, do some stamping, and eat!  They had some homework from last time and I couldn’t wait to see what they did with it!

Their assignment was to make something with the supplies they were given:

  • Lost Lagoon Card Base
  • Mint Macaron Card Stock
  • Real Red Card Stock
  • Real Red Satin Ribbon
  • Metal Rimmed Pearl

They didn’t have to use all supplies and could add things of their own.  Here’s the results:

Maui Big Shot Homework Oct 2015 (2)

Marylou made this beautiful card using a stamp set that I can’t remember…  Marylou, comment & tell us what that is!  I love the dazzling diamond sparkles and the gorgeous lace at the bottom!  Marylou just couldn’t make the red work!  That was definitely the biggest challenge!

Francine made this striking card!  And she says she doesn’t do cards well…  Hmmm…

  • Flurry of Wishes
  • Snow Flurry Punch
  • Scalloped Tag Topper Punch

Free Make & Take for Thanksgiving!

Last night we had our first Thanksgiving Make & Take and I want to show you the wonderful projects we made!

Francine's tissue holder

Project #1 was created by Francine and I just love it! It’s a small tissue holder and it’s really simple to make.  She’s used Into the Woods DSP from the holiday catalog for the pretty paper.

Francine is selling kits so that you can make these at home.  Just $10 for a kit that makes 5 holders (tissue not included).

Marylou's Curvy Box Turkey

Project #2 was created by Marylou.  Isn’t it adorable?!!  She’s used the Curvy Keepsake Box to make them, along with lots of punches.  Just add candy…

She has kits available for sale, also!  For just $10, you’ll be able to make 6 of these cute little turkeys.  I forgot to take a picture of his “back-side”.  That will be a surprise for you!

Thanksgiving pocket boxes

Project #3 was created by me.  You can choose to make either a candy box or a place-setting to decorate your Thanksgiving table.  I used the Pillow Box Framelit that is in the holiday catalog.

I also have kits available for $10 & you’ll have supplies to make 6.

We’re doing this same event again this Sunday, October 18th.

173 Hoohana #101 in Kahului behind Safeway.

Don’t miss it!!  Did I mention…IT’S FREE!

Please RSVP so that we have everything prepped!  Leave a comment to order kits to make at home.

Thanks for stopping by & hope to see you soon!

Special Card for New Downline!

I’m very excited to add a new person to my team… Deni Kawauchi!  She’s been a SU Demo in the past and just wanted to get back into stamping!  She found me on line and I’m so glad she did!

Here’s a special card I made to welcome her to the team:

Special Card for Downline

Card in a Box is my favorite card to make when I want to “WOW” someone!  This one is filled with flowers from Flower Patch Stamp Set and cut out using Flower Fair Framelits.  See those new pearls?  Those are Metal Rimmed Pearls in the new Holiday Catalog.

Special Card for Downline (2)

Let me know if you’re interested in becoming a demonstrator!  Some do it to have their own business, but most sign up just to get that wonderful 20 – 25% discount on all their Stampin’ Up! products!  We get together every 2 months to swap, share ideas, make something new or learn a new technique, & always eat!

By the way, I’ll be having a CARD IN A BOX CLASS after the holidays!  Who’s interested?  If you are, please post a comment!  CLICK HERE to see some of the ones I’ve made in the past.

Thanks for stopping by…

Christmas Cards Already?!

I always have the best of intentions when it comes to sending out my Christmas Cards!  I mean, I make cards almost every day!  But December always catches up with me and then there’s just too much to do to send out a bunch of cards.

Not this year!  Monday I gathered with some other determined stampers and we spent the very hot day stamping, eating, and listening to Christmas music (and having a fun, fun time!).  It was a “shoebox swap” so everyone came up with their own designs and did the prepping for everyone else.  The cards were so completely different and beautiful!!

Shoebox Swap for Christmas 2015

Wonderous Wreath

Here’s my card, using Wonderous Wreath, and cased from Elaine Schader. Thanks, Elaine!  I couldn’t change a thing!

Francine's Snow Place Card

This adorable card was created by Francine, one of my downline girls, using Snow Place and that beautiful Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

Marylou's Star Card

Marylou, also one of my downline, came up with this pretty card.  Using the Star Framelits, this is a perfect way to use up some DSP!

Louella's Snowflake Card

Louella came up with this beautiful card!  Love the colors!!  Louella used a retired set and the Festival of Trees.  And we all appreciated how simple it was!  Especially after making Yvette’s amazing card!!

Yvette's Slider Card

 

 

Yvette's Slider Card (2)

Isn’t that the coolest card?!!  It was a little bit involved, especially since Yvette (also my Downline Girl) is the Embellishment Queen!!  Good thing we each made 4 cards because I’m definitely keeping one for myself!

Ramona's Wonderland Card

Last, but not least, it’s Ramona’s elegant card using Wonderland and the new, pretty Cording Trim.

That was such a fun day!  Thanks, everyone, for stopping by…
