25 February 2014 – Is it a box or is it a card?

Now that is the question!! I’ve seen lots of Card in a Boxes on Pinterest and Facebook and it was time I jumped on the band wagon!!

I found a great tutorial by Tanya Bell, check out her blog here, and I was on my way. Once you get the cutting and scoring done, it’s up to you how you decorate it.

I love the Sale-a-bration paper, Sweet Sorbet (well all of it except the black print, yucko!!) so it was perfect for this card. I also used the matching SAB stamp set, Petal Parade.

We made this at Stamp club this weekend and the ladies loved it, except for cutting out the petals!! Not my favourite part, either!! Especially when I made up the extras and had to cut out 12 petals!!

I’m sending one of these to my grandmother who is unwell, so hopefully it will cheer her up!

9 November 2011 – Brisbane Regional event

Last Saturday I attended the Stampin’ Up! Brisbane Regional training event with some of the girls in my team and a few of my customers.  My upline, Tracy was also able to attend.  It was a great day of catching up, swapping, sharing, learning and laughs!!!  This is why I love Stampin’ Up!  They are such a generous business!!  They had door prizes during the day (I didn’t win one but one of my team members did, Yay Carolyn!!) and gave everyone who attended a container of Champagne glitter glass. Gorgeous stuff!!!

Some of the girls in my team, Carolyn G and Mary R.

 

Here are my guests, Me, Jan S, Lynn W and Sandra (aka Super Mum!!)

One of the best parts of any Stampin’ Up! event, is the swapping!!!  Generally, you make a card front, include a project recipe and make lots of them.  I don’t enjoy making 50 of the same thing, so I usually do a couple of different cards.  This year, I did two card fronts and a bookmark.

I cased this one from another SU demonstrator, Elizabeth Dyson.

Now when I saw this on Splitcoaststampers, I just knew that I had to make it as a swap.  It’s by Snowteach.  I have to admit that I am addicted to Angry Birds!!!  These were very popular!!
