Stampin' Up! has fabric in the new Holiday Mini!

Shelli and her daughter showed us how great our new fabric is and how well it works with the big shot.
I love these curtains and I love how the big shot helped to make them. This is the new Candy Cane striped fabric we will carry in the Holidy Mini Catalog that comes out in September. Notice the cute bows at the top? They are made with the scallop square die from the big shot. The ruffle is made with the Perfect Place Sittings cup cake thingy. HOW cool is that? More coming but I have to go and clean my carpets. Happy Stamping!

Scary Ideas for Stamps and Paper

My favorite demonstration of all at convention was Brent Steele's. He is the art director for SU. I think. He showed lots of great ideas of what to do for Halloween to make your house spooky. He painted our house from the Holiday Mini and sprinkled glitter on it!--IF you don't have the holiday mini catalog yet--it is coming! Let me know if you are interested in a class on these projects.

I like Stampin' Up!

And apparently so do a lot of other people. This is a picture of some of the 2800 other people who were there. We stamped, we laughed, we cried, we ate chocolate, and we got a lot of really amazing cards and ideas that I will be sharing with you!

The people I stamp with almost every month at stamp club are really a lot better stampers than I am, and I get a lot of good ideas from them Check out their takes on some of these purses. I found the template at

New Papers from the Catalog.

Our Green House Gala Designer paper goes really well with "Friends Never Fade" Stamp Set on page 99 of the new catalog. I had fun making these cards.
