Stampin' Studio Revealed!

I am soooo excited about the new Stampin' Studio classroom that I wanted you all to see pictures. You can now attend classes at my home, and if I forget an item or if someone wants to see something not already in the classroom, it's no problem to go grab it for you!

For those of you that have attended my classes at the museum & church, you know how much stuff I bring! Wow, it was a chore preparing, making sure I brought everything needed, packing, setting up, then packing back up, loading the car, etc...

So, here are the pictures. I have more work to do, but so far, it is working out great!

The 1st photo is my 3-D project display. There are many projects displayed, and some of them have retired product. But, the display is for your inspiration to show you how versitile Stampin' Up! products are.

Here is a picture of the work area :)

The next photo is my greeting card display! Many of the cards displayed were received from demonstrator swaps, and additional cards of mine. And, oops...I need to update this display with current mini catalog products :)

And, I love this corner of the room...the Big Shot Station!

Dies are stored below in baskets, and everything within reach!!!

Still need to decorate the walls... I have some Stampin' Up! Decor Elements to adhere, and more ... but off to a great start.

Hope you will join me for the next class, check out the schedule and contact me at if you are interested. Space is really limited now, so register early!

Thanks for stopping by!

Spooktacular Stamp Class!

Last Thursday we had our Spooktacular Halloween Class, and there was no shortage of candy! I always buy too much, and having all that candy around is scarry in itself :)

This is a picture of the group of 6 projects. We created 2 cards, & 4 treat projects! The candy sleeve is a great, easy project for trick or treats. We used a 5 1/2 inch x 5 1/2 inch sheet of designer paper. Slipped treat inside & wrapped & adhered sides (assuring not too tight to slide out) and glued the bottom & sides together. Then crimp bottom with paper crimper & decorate! Designer paper was from the Wicked Cool designer paper pack, & stamp set was Wicked Cool!

See the tags with witch's feet sticking up? That cute project was CASED from fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Kimberly Van Diepen! Her creation was so adorable, I copied it just as hers'! Also, used the Wicked Cool stamp set for the witch's feet colored with markers & cut out. Two Tags Sizzix die cut, is the sleeve for the candies. Just adhere 2 tags on bottom crease, cover chocolates with designer paper, & decorate the front!

Autumn Harvest pumpkins were stamped on designer paper, cut out, and adhered to front of card base. Also used the awsome polk a dot Sizzix embossing folder. Sentiment is from Tiny Tags (it's a great set with a sentiment for just about every occasion). Next project is the treat cup lolipop. Just love the treat cups, and this one designed to open in the back for easy removal of candies :)

See the image of the adorable little girl sitting on top of a pumpkin? She is from Greeting Card Kids! It is a great new stamp set!!! We used watercolor paper & the Aqua pen to color her. Then layered on the new Spider Web embossing folder, and added designer paper and border punch.

How about that little milk carton Sizzix die cut, with coordinating stamp set!

Hope you enjoy the peak of the projects we created, and I really hope you will join me for the next card class... Christmas Cards!!!

Thanks for dropping by!

My first pennant! What a cute Halloween Decoration this makes!

Last Christmas one of my awsome downlines, Sarah, gave me a Christmas pennant. I absolutely loved it! But I had never made one I CASED some of here ideas, and added a little of my own!

Of course, I began with the Stampin' Up! exclusive Bigz die cut. I chose to use the small pennant for this project & the Naturally Serif Sizzlits Decorative Strip Die for the alphabet. For each piece of the banner, I used 2 of the scallop circles included in the die cut. I folded them between the scallops, adhered them together to get the accordian fanned circle. Then I used Tombow glue on the edges & sprinkled the new Silver Glass Glitter on the edges. The new Glass Glitter is in the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog. Love this chunky glitter, with tons of shimmer!!! Finishing touches, Jumbo Eyelets adhered with the Crop-a-Dile, tied together with one of my favorite ribbons, the 1 1/4 Striped Grosgrain!

Now, where to place my cute little Boo Banner???

Thanks for dropping by!

Stampin' Up! Class Schedule Updated, & more...

The new Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini catalog is here!!! If you haven't gotten your copy, & would like to receive one, e-mail me at!!!

So many occasions are just around the corner, & the new Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini catalog has so many awsome new products, from Halloween, Fall-Thanksgiving, Christmas, & Valentines Day! Maybe you just need some designer paper to freshen up your stampin' stash, or a new Big Shot embossing folder, or die cut... The only problem is, you may have problems choosing which products to purchase!

You could always book a workshop, & get some the new products FREE!!! Hmmm, now there's a thought!!!

Or, better yet, now is a great time to sign up as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator!!! check out my website at to peak at the awsome new Greenhouse Gala tote ($39.95 retail value) that you can receive FREE when you purchase the Stampin' Up! Demo kit for only $175! It is a great value, and NO OBLIGATION TO HOLD WORKSHOPS!!!

And, check out my Stampin' Up! class schedule...I have added Scrappin' Saturdays each month, and a card class each month. contact me soon to reserve your spot!!!

I am working on designs for the Spooktacular Halloween Class, and here is a fun little punch art card I came up with. Now, I cannot claim the idea of the punch art bat & ghost created with the XL Owl punch. But, I created the tombstone with the new Extra Large Decorative label punch (from the new mini). I thought it worked well...what do you think? And, the sentiment is from the Wicked Cool stamp set. (I love this one, just too cute with the witches feet!)

Don't know if this one will make the cut, but it is quite simple, & fun to create!

Thanks for stopping by :)
