Party Pants!

Last post for a demonstrator challenge - another great reason to become a demonstrator.  You are never on your own but part of a team which helps each other and encourages each other!  Let me know if you would like to join!  Here is a card I made with my latest free Sale-a-bration stamp set and paper!

Demonstrator Delight

Just like I mentioned yesterday this is the best time of year to join my team.  Anyone who joins my team will get even MORE free product credit in your starter kit.  Contact me to join!   I have been able to go to a few Stampin' Up Conventions and you get to meet other great demonstrators whose work you can see on their websites. I have often cased Dawn Griffith's fabulous ideas and now subscribe to her videos.  I got the idea for this little box which holds four 5X3 1/2" cards and envelopes.  It uses one sheet of 12X12 DSP.   Isn't it a great set!

Becoming a Demonstrator

As I mentioned yesterday it is great fun to be a demonstrator for Stampin' Up.  I thought I would post a picture today of what it would look like when you order for your starter kit.   As you can see you can order many things to get you started and you can choose from the catalogue.  You don't have to order the things in the picture but it just gives you an idea of what you could have.  Leave me a comment if you would love to join our awesome team.   There is lots of support!

Best time of year to become a Demonstrator

There are a lot of perks when you are a demonstrator.  Stampin' Up is a great company to work for.  Besides all the fun of getting together with friends to make cards or do scrapbooking, you have the chance to order new items ahead of when they come out in the catalogue and you will receive a magazine with great ideas for making new things and helpful tips from other demonstrators.

Another Sale-a-bration Card

I have almost used my free paper!   I wasn't sure about this pattern but as a demonstrator we get weekly emails and this idea was in there so I thought I would try it!

More Paper Pumpkin

I decided to try punching little balloons out of the adhesive backed flower and leaf pages.  It worked and I could just peel them off and add them to my cards. I hate to waste anything.

Still on my quest to use my Sale-a-bration paper.   It matches so many colours.  I think my favourite bundle in the new catalogue is the Rose Garden Bundle.  The roses are pretty and there a lot of good sayings.

Same design - new colours!

I needed a birthday card for a friend and pulled out a Crumb Cake card I had posted once but decided I could not give a friend who loved purple a beige card.  I just used the same design but used Blackberry Bliss and voila!

More Sale-a-ration Paper

Not sure you can see the bow clearly but I am having fun designing cards using the paper you get for free during Sale-a-ration!  It is such pretty paper.  I felt I didn't need to add too much to this card.

Punch Art Fun

Thanks to Sandra Shimiza for the idea to make this little doll for my friends birthday.   Punches are so versatile.  I used the new Cupa and Kettle thinlits to make the little loops on the cape.

I have seen several of these types of cards on Pinterest and decided to try one of my own.  I used the Sweetheart punch and the heart thinlit from the Mini Treat bag set.  Then I used the little heart from the Baker's box and it fits over the heart on the Happy Heart embossing folder!

More Paper Pumpkin

I am having fun designing cards with all the paper from my Paper Pumpkin kit.   I used the Sweetheart punch to cut out smaller hearts from the paper in the kit and it adds a nice touch I think.  I stamped the sentiment using the Bloomin' Love stamp set.

Bloomin' Love and Paper Pumpkin

I might have to try more combinations of the Bloomin' Heart thinlit and my January Paper Pumpkin Kit.   I also used the Bloomin' Love stamp set and love the effect of the little flowers stamped with Watermelon Wonder on the heart.
