How cute is this card!  I'm not the biggest punch art fan but this guy really caught my eye.  We made this for card for Laurie's Line UP! and at a recent stamp camp.

My New Years Resolution

This is a New Years card I received as a swap from the talented Cindy Williams.  This inside is just as classy as the outside but difficult to photograph.  My resolution for 2015 is to post more frequently on my blog.  Wish me luck.

Happy New Year everyone!  May 2015 bring you good health and prosperity.

Happy New Year

2015 Calendars

We made these calendars at The Gathering Place Holiday Event last night.  The Gathering Place is a St. Louis area demonstrator group lead by Sally Nusbaum, one of my main peeps (I do have many).   We will be making these at my December class and I can't wait for my customers to experience the thrill of making these because one is cuter than the next.  I was honored and fortunate enough to be invited to be on the design team along with Sally and Kim Coulter.  I really enjoyed doing this and learned everything I need to know to pass the experience on to my customers.

Lauries Line-UP!

This past Saturday was our semi-annual event for Laurie’s Line-UP! was held at DeLeo’s Café & Deli in Florissant, MO.  This is a time my stamping peeps get together to make cards to donate to worthy causes.  The cards we made at this event will be donated to Card Care Connection, a local organization who sends cards to cancer victims to bring them hope and brighten their day. 

In this post are highlights from our day and some of the cards we made.  Deanna, Joetta, Mary T are not pictured.  Susan and Patti were not with us but donated cards.

Thanks to Jake and everyone at DeLeo’s for providing space for us.  Lunch was fantastic and those chocolate chip cookies….yummy!!!

Giving back to the community is something near & dear to my heart.  I am so blessed with a stamping family who has similar values.  The highlight of my day:  Laurie was able to be with us.

Thanks also to David, my 8 year old grandson who serves as my accounter.  We made 224 cards on Saturday and are expecting some more donations this weekend.  Very close to our 250 goal.

Third Annual Christmas Card Workshop

On October 26th, over 50 stampers gathered for our Third Annual Christmas Workshop.  The workshop was hosted by me & my peeps, Judy, Marla & Mary.  It was a great day and I believe everyone enjoyed their day.  Here are some highlights of our group and the cards that were made.  I was particularly thrilled that our Laurie was with us most of the day.  She is a treasure to us all.

Fall Regional Make & Take

 The Gathering Place is a group of Stampin’ UP! demonstrators who periodically gather for events to share ideas, learn new techniques, network and just have a good time.  We have product demonstrations, technique tutorials, make & takes and of course, swapping.  Our Fall Regional event was held this past Saturday.  We had 4 seasons of make & takes; Halloween, Fall, Christmas and Winter.  This is the make & take that I chose for the Winter theme.  The card design is by Cathy Parlitis and the Tag design is by Kim Coulter (my very own peep).  We had a great time and made lots of memories.  It was an absolute pleasure to work with the team of Sally Nusbaum (our fearless leader) Cheryl Renth and Kim Coulter to make this event a great success.  Oh What Fun!
