Preparing for event tomorrow

Tomorrow I'm having a huge event at Eastern Shore Baptist Church. I'm expecting 40 ladies to come stamp. I've designed several different cards to show and also did prepare a cute project for each lady to make and take.

Luckily my downline and special customers are helping me out. I don't know what I would do without them. They'll be able to help the ladies stamp and answer questions if I'm busy with someone.

Wish me luck!

Here's a cute card from Leadership that I liked.

And a scrapbook page.

It's using the new stamp set Gnome Sweet Gnome. You can find this stamp set in the
Occasions Mini Catalog. Super cute!

Don't forget to check out my events page and see if you can come to any classes. I would love to set up a time to get together with you and your friends.

Happy Stamping!

Leadership was great!

Stampin' Up! did it again. They created a wonderful convention for the leaders of the company. Us demonstrators! Here's just a few photos of the event and the Make and Takes.

Here's some pictures of cards made by the Artisian Award Winners.

These are made with the kit in the Occasions mini that's only $9.95. Loved seeing new ideas for the die cut flowers and adding buttons and twine. I liked the kit just for the self adhesive jewels.

I had a last minute change to who I was rooming with at Leadership. My upline had to cancel her trip and so I was asking online who would like to stay with me. A lady with a baby answered my message. You might think I'm crazy to room with a baby. Just look at her though.

Arabella was such a sweet baby. So beautiful too. Jamie, her mom was fun to hang out with. She is from California (my home state). We had a lot in common. We shared a lot of ideas with each other too. I am looking forward to keeping up with her and seeing her again at Convention in Salt Lake City.

I guess that's it for now. I will post again soon.

I still believe

Even though the Broncos did not win I still believe. I know God has big plans for Tebow and he'll be back.

I do have some new things to show you but have not had a change to download the pictures yet. Perhaps today will be the day I do that. LOL.

I hope you are having a blessed weekend. I'm off to church.

Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos did it again! They beat the Steelers in Overtime! Here is the guy who believes in his team, in himself and in God. Love him!

I've been watching a lot of football lately. LOL. The Saints won too! I would love to see the Saints and Broncos in the Superbowl! Total dream come true. LOL.

I had a great day with my downline today. Laura and Diane came over and we made some really cute cards using the designer paper from the Sale-a-bration Catalog. You can only earn this paper by hosting a party or spending $50.

Check out the cards on my facebook page: Ink It Up

Thanks for looking and God bless!

Last chance for Clearance items

Some of the items are going to be removed from the Clearance Rack. Pleas email me your order today and I'll make sure to order what you need before it's gone.

Click here for the link.

Also today is the first day of the Occasions Mini Catalog. Here's another sample to show you.

I used the new White Waffle Paper. Love how it looks on the bottom of the card. Plus I used the stamp set Love Ones that I got for free for being a presenter at the Birmingham Regional.

If you are in the Gulf Shores area you may want to come make 10 of these cards:

Class is on Tuesday, January 17th at 10am at the Gulf Coast Scrapbooking store. Email me for directions if you need them. I actually smooched this card after I made it with the new Blushing Bride Smooch. May have been too much. LOL. I didn't take a picture of it but you can go look at it in person at the store starting today.

I am actually feeling sick today. Last night I had some aches in my joints and chills. I took two Nyquil and went to bed. This morning I could barely stand in the kitchen to make lunches for the girls. I felt so weak. I ask Jessica to finish making lunches for her and her sister and went to sit on the couch. I was able to brush their hair for them and then they went off to school. I took some alkaseltzer cold and now I'm feeling a little better. I hate not feeling well. Let's hope I get over this thing quickly.

New card, new product

I finally had a chance to create something with the new products in the Occasions mini catalog. Here's my card:

stamp sets: Bordering on Romance and Word Play.
Paper: Early Espresso Cardstock, Twitterpated DSP, Crumb Cake Cardstock, Luckly Limade Cardstock, Blushing Bride Cardstock
punch: 5 petal punch, itty bitty shapes
framelits: labels and edgelets
accessories: pearl accents, dimensionals, twitterpatted buttons, blushing bride pleated-satin ribbon.
ink: early espresso, sponging on edges.

I also did a card class in Gulf Shores a few weeks ago. Here's what I came up for it.

We did 5 boy cards and 5 girl cards. The technique I taught them was masking and watercoloring. I learned something new too. If you use our water color crayons to color on the paper first and than use a blender pen or aqua painter to smooth it out, it goes much faster.

I hope you all are having a great new year so far. I've been enjoying my family time. The girls and I slept in every morning. We stayed up late watching H2O, eating popcorn and cuddling. (Daddy was away hunting).

I also spent the day yesterday taking down the tree, Christmas decorations and putting it all away. I decided to go ahead and decorate for Mardi Gras. I'll take some pictures and show you tomorrow.

Tomorrow morning is going to be hard for me and my girls. We are used to waking up at 10am. Alarms are going off at 6:15am. UGH!!!! I can't seem to make myself go to bed yet though. Not tired yet. Maybe if I go lay down with my daughter who is standing over my shoulder right now I will get tired. Maybe she'll actually go to sleep if I do. LOL.

See you back here tomorrow. Good night.
