Chocolate Bunny Stamp

Love the Chocolate Bunny Stamp.  It is only $7.95 and OH sooo cute!
We made this bunny box at my last workshop and we embossed the bunny onto close to cocoa paper.

Love the Sweet Pea Designer Paper!

We used this great Designer Paper called Sweet Pea at my Workshop on Saturday.  I just love it!  It comes in a pack of 48 sheets.  We made this magnetic board.  We covered a piece of magnetic sheets that I got in the roofing department at our local hardware store.  They were 8x8 in size.  Then we made these cute little magnets to go on them.  We finished by punching two holes with my crop-a-dile and put some great pretty coordinating ribbon on.

I just love this Swap I received.  It is so simple, but great color combinations.  This is using a stamp set in the main catalog called Priceless.  The flower images are embossed in white.  The background white has been run through the bigshot with a texture plate to get those dots.  Love It!

Lemonade Gathering

My Upline and a couple of great ladies in my Stampin Up Group decided to still have a get-together and use some of our showbox swaps we had prepared.  What is a shoebox swap?  Well it was my first experience doing an actual shoe box swap.  Everyone brought enough supplies to make a full card or 3D item and put all their supplies in a box or basket and we had two tables of 10.  Each had enough for 10 makentakes.  We passed out baskets around and then we all went home with 10 different items!  How Fun.  This week I will be showing some of the fun things we made along with some other swaps I received.

I'm Back!!!

I have gotten a few emails wondering if I was ok as I have not posted in awhile.  I have been so busy getting swaps done and getting so excited for the Syracuse Stampin Up Regional.  It was supposed to take place last Saturday Feb. 27th.  Well Upstate NY was taken over by a huge snow storm and numerous roads and business were closed.  The Regional was cancelled and boy was I bummed.  I made a large amount of swaps and prepared for a fun shoebox we were going to be doing the night before.  It was going to be such a fun roadtrip.  My group is hoping Stampin Up will again try to get back to our area at some point soon.  Above is just one of the many swaps I made.  This is using one of my fav sets, Trendy Trees.
I used The New Designer Paper from the Occasions Mini called Sweet Pea.
