Craft Get-Away Weekend!

This weekend was our First My Star Stampers Craft Get-Away Weekend!

It was sooo much fun to be able to hang around all weekend long and just stamp, scrap book, craft, relax etc and not have to worry about anything at all, not even when or what to make for breakfast, lunch and dinner! Nope, before we knew it someone was telling us our breakfast was being served, then lunch and lastly dinner. And this happened all weekend long!!! How relaxing.

Here are a couple of pictures from the weekend. I'll be posting more in the couple days because there were also some special pillow treats and make n' takes throughout the weekend!

SAVE THE DATE: Our next Get A-way Weekend will be held September 10-12th!!! It is a weekend you don't want to miss! I promise!
Ooopps... Happy Belated Valentines Day!

Hope you all had a wonderful day yesterday, it is nice to be able to spend the whole day with some one you love.

With that said here is a Valentines Da
y card I received in a swap. The one thing I did want to point out is look how she used Stampin' Up!'s stencils in such a beautiful yet subtle way.

Now here is one complicated card. It uses a whole bunch of Stampin' Up! products and supplies from the Occasions Mini. I just hope I don't miss anything.

Ink: Real Red and Pretty in Pink
Card Stock: Real Red, Very Vanilla, Pretty in Pink, Sending Love Specialty DSP

If you have any questions regarding this card please let me know. Also, sorry I can't remember who the demonstrator is that I got this from. But thank you very much!

Occasions Mini

Hi Ladies,

I don't normally buy chip board but once I found out how large the chip board is in the Mini Catalog, I just had to try it. They are made to be little books with a hole in the corner and held together by a chain. If I remember correctly there are 7 pages and they only cost $4.95!!!

Now that I had these I had to figure out what to do with them.....hmmmmm. So I had a "Stampers Gone Wild" night and introduced them then! Check out the results. Everyone that attend got one page from the book that they decorated and got to keep. I hope you like the results!


Stamp Sets: Vintage Vogue (Occasions Mini)

Ink: Not Quite Navy, Versa Mark and Very Vanilla Craft ink

Card Stock: Bella Blue DSP, Not Quite Navy

Accessories: Beautiful Butterflies Big Shot Die, Very Vanilla 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, Kraft Corduroy Buttons and Color Spritzer Tool.

Thanks for looking....
