SU Stars Fall & Halloween Blog Hop

Hi and welcome to my post for this weekends Stampin'Up! Stars Fall & Halloween Blog Hop 2012! If you are arriving here from Krafting with Karen then you are at the second stop on the hop! If you missed her beautiful creations, then click the above link and head back.  Please take a few minutes to leave comments on everyone's blogs.  We really do appreciate your kind words!
I have been hard at work during this year's busy craft fair season.  Below are a few of the projects I have completed and sold at local craft fairs.
First up I have a really festive gift you can take your hostess when you come over for a delightful holiday visit.  I really love this thick striped ribbon that Stampin'Up! no longer carries, boo, but I have a ton of it for my own person use! I simply cut a long strip of the ribbon and threaded my wine glass charms that I made with the Gently Falling stamp set and our Watercolor Pencils on Shrinky Dink paper. I used Stampin'Up! circle punch, paper piercer and heat gun.  The wine glass charms are quick and make a very thoughful gift that is also easy to personalize with initials or anything else that you want to stamp on them!
Here is a closer picture of the wine glass charms.

I made a few more goodies for the local craft fairs including the Double Pouch Tea Bag Holder, Halloween candy sticks, and Mummy Gum Wrapper.

Last but certainly not least are the adorable witches broom sticks I made! I found chocolate licorice  and put it in our skinny bags and tied it up pretty for a quick little Halloween treat for the kids.  I hope you have enjoyed seeing what I have been up to. 
Please take a few minutes to leave a comment and I will give away one set of my Wine Glass Charms along with some beautiful ribbon to tie on your own wine bottle! I will give you until Monday morning to leave a comment, then I will randomly have the computer select a winner. Good Luck!
Thanks so much for stopping by and keep on the Blog Hop going to Stamping with Janice
Have a great weekend!

Rainbow Splash Butterfly Cards

Video now live on YouTube!
Hi everyone! I hope you are having a great weekend!  Friday night was Stamp Club and these are two examples of one of the cards we made.  I made about 6 of these cards before I started making ones I really liked.  Coloring with reinkers is a harder technique to master than I thought!

Thanks for stopping by!  Please leave me feedback and I will mail one of these cards to a lucky person who leaves me a comment!

P.S. I saw a card similar to this in Stampin'Up!'s Stampin' Success Magazine for August 2012 by Aimee Cretsinger.  Her beautiful card gave me the inspiration to make these cards to share with you.

Stampin'Up! Convention 2012 ~ Riverton Tour

Me, my mom Cindy, Donna & Sam at "the Rock" in front of corporate.

Wow, I have had such an amazing time at the Stampin'Up! Convention this year!  I haven't made it to the last 2 conventions, so this was really special for me to see the other girls on our team and spend time with them.  On Tuesday we headed out to the Riverton Campus where the Stampin'Up! corporate headquarters is located.  We toured the facilities and they are truely amazing!
One of the fabulous rooms decorated with all Stampin'Up! products.

I love the seam binding ribbon they used across the top of the wall!

Amazing is all I can keep saying about our In Colors this year!  I love the Gumball Green, Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple, Summer Starfruit and Midnight Muse! If you have not seen these in person, then you are really missing out!

Talk about a dream work space!  It is very bright and organized! Love it!
I hope you have enjoyed a little peek inside my trip out to Riverton ;)  I hope to share more with you very soon!  If you are not already following my blog, then please put your email in the subscribe box to the right and you will automatically receive an email when I make a new post!

You're Amazing Up, Up & Away!

Hey all,
I am really loving the new 2012 In Colors!  I used the You're Amazing and Up, Up & Away stamp sets for this card.  I cut out a scalloped strip of each In Color with the Tasteful Trim Die and used the New Essentials Paper Piercing Pack (below is 1 of 3 templates).

What I really love about the New Essentials paper piercing pack is that they are 6 x 6 templates.  Stampin'Up! has made it so much easier to make a straight pierced line across your cards and the new Stampin' Pierce Mat is awesomely huge!

Stampin'Up! Stars ~ Stampin' Spaces Blog Hop

Hi, and welcome to my blog! Today I am joining the Stampin' Up! Stars Stampin' Spaces Blog Hop!  I am very excited that you have made it here from Jayne's blog: she has a really wonderful set up for creating beautiful handstamped projects. 

I have to tell you that I shot a video of me walking around telling you about my stampin' area.  It turned out pretty long, so I thought I would do pictures for now to get my post ready to share, but I promise I am going to edit that video down so I can post it for you to see as well. 

In this corner is where I store alot of my Stampin' Up! supplies! I have my ink shelf, organized by family, ribbon dowels in the middle and reinkers at the top along with VersaInk and Stazon pads. To the right are my towel rods from IKEA that are overflowing with punches! I do need to pick up a few more next time I am close to one.  In the boxes below my inkpad shelf are embellishments, adhesives, markers, embossing powders, and more.  I really love these little drawers because you can organize alot into them without taking up alot of space.  That pile of paper on my desk are scraps that I need to file away, but haven't gotten around to yet ;)

So moving clockwise around the room you will see several paper racks.  The first one holds my In Color papers, the next one holds all my 12 x 12 cardstock, the third holds odds and ends of pieces I need to clean out!  On the black shelf I have buttons in jars, items to alter and decorate, my stampin' wheels, unfinished projects and the bottom shelf is full of paper kits that need to be put together into scrapbook pages.  The shorter black shelf holds most of my clear mount stamp sets and some current wood mounted ones that I haven't put back into my storage cabinet.

Next I have my cabinet that holds stamps, more stuff to alter, scrapbooks, photos, and whatever else I am forgetting about.  On top of it I have my extra Clear Mount stamp cases.  I found that awesome 12 x 12 paper rack on Craigslist and have all of my current Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper on it! On the white shelf to the right I have photos of friends, family, projects I have made this past year for classes, craft fairs and teacher gifts.  I also keep my old catalogs on the bottom shelf, because you never know when you might want to look something up.

The next photo shows the middle area of the room where I have two tables set up that I do most of my work on. I have two other tables that I can set up to fit 12 - 14 people total in for classes and workshops.  My Big Shot sets on a rolling utility cart that I found at Sam's Club.  Underneath I have my Big Shot Dies, Textured Embossing folders, Sizzlits and Embosslits stored.  It has big wheels that make it easy to push around on the carpeted floors.

On this wall I have a big wood frame that a friend's husband built with chicken wire on it.  I bought a bunch of small clothes pins at one of those big box craft stores and pin my card up on it.  Right now I have mostly Sale A Bration swaps, and Occasion Mini swap cards on it.  I also have a bathroom down here so no one has to climb the stairs to use the restroom.  I also keep some of the newest products on a table displayed for customers to look at.  I was trying to get everything cleaned up so my Stampin' Space would be somewhat presentable ;)

I hope you have enjoyed checking out where I stamp!  I have been stamping for 10 years now and have been a demonstrator for almost 4 years.  I really enjoy the creativity that I get from stamping in my room.  ~Charlotte

Thanks for stopping by!

I have been busy this weekend working on new projects.  This adorable new stamp set from Stampin'Up! is called Somebunny and it is so stinkin' cute!  I stamped this cute little bunny girl with Chocolate Chip Classic ink and colored her in using Blender pens.  I used Lucky Limeade ink & cardstock, Blushing Bride ink & pleated ribbon, More Mustard ink and Bashful Blue ink. I gave the Crumb Cake 3 x 3 card base a spritz with Blushing Bride Spritz Spray.  The flower accent is made with the Newsprint DSP and an Antique Brad.  I L-O-V-E how beautifully this all came together.  I hope you enjoy and have a great day!

SU Stars Blog Hop: Ebony & Ivory

Hi and welcome to the SU Stars Ebony & Ivory Blog Hop for January 2012!  If you want to start at the beginning of the Hop then please click here: OR you may have just arrived here from Karen's blog where she lays out a great tutorial on how to make her beautiful card!

Today I want to share with you a special Valentine I made for my husband, who is currently deployed.  This is not our first Valentine's Day apart, and probably not the last, but we make work ;)  So I wanted to do something different with the Paper Doily Large Sizzlit.  I started out by cutting out 5 doilies and folded them and adheared them down to a white circle I punched out. Then I used the large scallop circle punch with Basic Black cardstock and added another layer with the Delicate Doilies stamp set and punched it out with another circle punch.  Next I took the tiniest of Stampin'Up's pearls and put one on each scallop.  I cut my Basic Black card base at 5 x 10 and folded it to make a 5x5 square card to accomodate the larger "flower" I made with the folded doilies. I added a 4 3/4"square layer of Whisper White cardstock and then a 4 1/2" square of Mocha Morning Designer Series paper.  This paper is flocked and so luxurious! I added Black Satin ribbon before I put the doily flower down.  Finally I added the little heart cut from Red Glitter paper with the small heart punch and put a pearl down on each corner, I colored them red with a Sharpie marker.

I really love how nicely this card came together!  I enjoyed sharing it with you today! 

Please continue on the Blog Hop to Monica Weaver's blog and see what fun projects she has to share with you today!

Happy Hoppin'!
