Lacey Beautiful You

Hope you are having a Great start to your week.  I thought I would show you one of the cards I made in my workshop a week  ago, I will make the other one next week.   I just the the stamp set Beautiful You.  It is so Elegant.  You can use the stamps that come with it for a water color feel, or you can water color it your self, you can use markers, pencils.  There is such a wide variety of options for using these images.  I really love this little design I came up with and I am sure you will too, it was a huge hit.  So enjoy!

My 20th Anniversary Card with Stampin Up Falling Flowers

They say time flies.  Really seems like it when it smacks you in the face.  I cant believe my husband and I have been married for 20 years.  We met on a blind date,  I told him it was the last blind date he would ever go on, and it was.   We have raised 3 great kids and have 2 grandboys, so life has been really good to us.  He is a photographer, so he isn't minding the up coming trips I told him I want to take to the Stampin Up conventions planned for Minneapolis in April and then the Big One in November to Salt Lake.  We currently live in Kansas so he looks forward to change of scenerory, and National Parks along the way.  My anniversary card might be a touch feminine, but he doesn't mind.  He actually likes flowers so it works.  I really like the colors peach and pear together, they are so soft.  You can layer the flowers in this set also.  I just bought the dazzling diamonds glitter paper, oh my it is a must have!  It just shines, my daughter just fell in love with it too.    So I hope you will enjoy the video and details below.

Swapping with Inside the Lines

So I have found one of the GREAT things about joining Stampin Up in the community of people.  I have a wonderful team, that I am a part of.  But also Stampin Up themselves has forums for outreach to talk to each other for help, socialization, friendship.  So I joined in one of the groups for a swap, It was so easy all we had to do was make 6 cards to mail by the 6th of the month for 6 months.  I thought I can do this.  I had seen something similar to this design on Pinterest with the Inside the Lines paper where you cut out the circle and only color the circle, not to time consuming because you don't color all the paper.  The person and placed a slightly larger circle as a shadow around it.  But I wanted to change it up.  I really like the Falling flower bundle and love that large detailed flower and thought it would be perfect because you can still see threw most of it.  I love the leaf spray going up the side too.  So I realize Im probably biased but really was happy with the turn out.  Hope you all are too.  Here is the video below.  And all the supplies also.   Don't forget the store.
