Hello! I wanted to share some great projects shared at our Stampin' Smile group meeting last night. There were some great swaps and MaryAnn taught us how to make some really neat things that I will surely make again in the future! Thanks, Mary Ann!
Here's Heid's flip-flop card. I'm really not sure if that's the "official" name, but that's what it does, so that's what I'm calling it... :)
Reina made this card perfect for Father's Day using the spotlight technique. There's even a slot to put a gift card from Dad's favorite place!
Here's mine, I cased it from the new catalog...It uses the new "Petal Prints" stamp set that was part of our pillow gift while on the Caribbean Cruise! Stampin' Up! sure knows how to spoil us!
And here is a cute holder that MaryAnn taught us how to make. It can be used to hold note paper, cards, Post-Its...It's very versatile as it can be decorated for any theme. She also made a collection of cards to put in it using the Level I Hostess Set "It's the Thought". Receive this set FREE when you host a workshop of $150 or more. Here's the holder:
And here are close up photos of the cards...very simple and clean. These cards were colored with the Aqua Painter and re-inkers and dusted with a little bit of dazzling diamonds for that perfect touch!
We also used the watercolor technique to make pansies that we used as a focal point for our Fancy Favor Box and a beautiful flower to adorn a elegant card!
MaryAnn also taught us how to make this tea bag holder/dispenser made with the new Designer Series Paper Greenhouse Gala. As a demonstrator, we are able to order certain sneak peek items...It's wonderful! :) Do you know how much more onolicious ('ono' is yummy in Hawaiian) your tea will taste coming from such a beautiful dispenser? Unless you're like me and forever keep everything in tact as a "sample" in "The Collection". Hee, hee! Those of you who know what I'm talking about...Aren't we funny?! Oh, here's the photo... This box also uses our new Marina Mist 1/8" taffeta ribbon and Mini Vintage Tags.
I look forward to our monthly Stampin' Smile get-together where we swap, talk about Stampin' Up!, share a project--in this case several--and have a super time! If this sounds like something you would enjoy, we would love to have you in our Stampin' Smile group too! Now is a perfect time to join with the $99 special Stampin' Up is offering! Please contact me for details and/or visit my Stampin' Up! website.
If you would like to learn how to make any of the projects here, please let me know. If you would like to order any of the supplies to make these projects, I am happy to help you!
