I made this keep sake box for my mom. As you saw yesterday I make her pages each year of my kids, this year I decided to gift wrap it in a decorated tin that she could keep the old pages in. I used a new set from the upcoming Holiday Catalog called Affection Collection! This will be available starting August 1st to everyone.

So every year I give my mom a shadow box page of my kiddos for Mother's Day. This year I was a little late(well I was late last year to, but that is besides the point) Anyways with the artisan entry and convention board samples I had a lot of creating to do, so I think she understood! Here is what I came up with for her card...

I have started up another round of Parks and Rec classes! It is great I have a full house. I really enjoy teaching these classes, and since I have a ton of return visitors, I am guessing they like it as well! I try to keep my cards for these classes a little more basic then club or my Cards and Cocktails class (which is coming up on the 13th of July-if you are interested be sure to email me) I want everyone to feel successful and since there is a variety of stampers I try to not over complicate things. Here are the cards we did for last class.
I cased the card above...you can see the inspiration here.
These two I just came up with:)
Thanks for stopping in!

Happy Saturday! It has been a long and busy week, but due to an exciting phone call I got Thursday, it has been a good week:) Stampin' Up! called to let me know I was selected as one of the 20 finalist for next years artisan design team!!! (I just had to share the screen shot of the list)
This is pretty exciting news considering I thought I had to take an entire year off to enter. In the past Stampin' Up! had rules that you could not win two years in a row, but late in the game they put an announcement out that they were changing this years rules and anyone including 2011 winners could enter. It has been such a wonderful and exciting experience to be a part of the Artisan Team this year. I have been a part of a great team of very talented women! I look forward to the chance of being a part of this years team, especially with the honor of being on the "design team" We will find out who is on the design team at awards night at convention. Keep your fingers crossed for me! Congrats to everyone else on this list as well!

Do you want to win your choice of
$100.00* of FREE merchandise out

Here is how to do it!
Simply place an order through me of a minimum $50.00 in merchandise (before tax and shipping) or more between June 14-21,2012 and be entered in a drawing to win $100.00 of your choice of product out of the current Stampin' Up! catalog. It gets even better.....everyone who orders at least $50 as stated above, gets a free pack of Stampin’ Dimensionals - $100 order – gets 2 packs, etc.
Then for every ten qualifying orders I receive there will be a new drawing to win! That’s like a one and ten chance of winning the $100’s of free merchandise! All orders will be shipped to me and available for local pick up. Out of area orders will be charged the additional shipping fee required to send your order to you. There is no limit to the amount of entries you can make, for EVERY $50.00 you order you will be entered! All orders must be placed and received by me via email no later then 12:00 midnight (PST) June 21, 2012.
* The Fine Print: Other offers and incentives such as free classes/clubs or shares may not be combined with this special. No shipping and tax will be charged on the Free Merchandise if you win as long as you are in the area and can pick up. If you are out of the area you will be charged the additional shipping fee required to send your merchandise to you. All orders must be emailed to me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org . Online orders are not eligible for drawing or free dimensionals. If I receive under 10 initial orders, one name will still be drawn from those qualifying orders received, and the prize will be prorated – so if I get 5 orders only the prize will be $50; 7 orders - $70; up to the $100. Have FUN shopping!!

This months challenge at my upline's meeting was do your best patriotic card. That was a bit challenging since everything needs to be correct and there is not much in this current catalog that is patriotic. So I came up with a flag!
In person it is pretty dimensioned! All the stripes are popped up and the banner and star are as well. Thanks for stopping in!

So for my downline and my upline meetings we are doing a creative journal. For those of you who attended leadership they had handed out journals to all of us, so I decided to do the same for my downline. Here is what I came up with fr the cover. I didn't have a ton of time, but I still was happy with it. Thanks for stopping by!
