Mojo Monday #101

It's been awhile since I participated in Mojo Monday, so I put together this quick card. Had to try out a new stamp set, C is for Cat, and the P is for Paw wheel. Just too cute, reminds me of my two kitties. I added a little bling around the cats neck using dazzling diamonds glitter (another one of my favorites :o) and a rhinestone brad for the center of the button (designer button sherbet). Thanks for looking!

August Stamp Camp

Hi! Sorry for the delay between posts. We just got back from spending a week in Idaho visiting my parents. I just love it out there, it's so peaceful and relaxing...can you tell they're out in the boonies, LOL. I have some cool pictures to show you from the trip which I'll post later. But, right now I thought I'd post the cards from my August stamp camp. The hostess requested doing birthday cards and I used several ideas from swaps I got at convention and just changed them up a little. Thanks to all you swappers!

SU! Convention 2009

Hello! Well I'm back from another fabulous trip to Salt Lake City for the Stampin' Up! convention. Like always it's so much fun to hang out with your friends and meet new ones. Also, to recognize and meet some of the demos you see on your favorite blogs. The excitement was in full force like usual and the swapping non-stop. I'm still amazed every year as to how much time some of those ladies put into swapping. Looks like some of them come with several hundreds. I'm lucky to get about 100 done :o).

SU! has some exciting new products coming out soon. First is the My Digital Studio, OMG! I have a feeling this is going to be a big seller, more to come on this later. Or, how about Build-A-Bear, yep, that's right, SU! has teamed up with Build-A-Bear -Stamps, Dies, DSP and while there we got to buy our own SU! exclusive Build-A-Bear, see picture below, isn't she adorable? And, one more item from Shelly's collection, Simply Adorned Charms where you can insert your own custom artwork. They can be worn on a chain or used as ornaments. I can't wait to get one.

Here's a picture of one Shelly showed during one of the sessions. As you can see it was taken off the big screen. But aren't those just too cool? :o)

Well, I know I said I was going to post pictures of my swaps before I left but as you can see that didn't happen, so here they are.

This is one of my new favorite stamp sets, Happy Together and Circle Circus. I just love those cute little quail. Doesn't it totally remind you of the Partridge Family? I think I just aged myself with that. :o)

As some of you know, snowman are my favorite during the holiday season. So, this one is made using one of the new hostess sets, The More The Merrier, and the Oval and Snowflake die for the Big Shot.

This one is using some of the new DSP, Cottage Wall and the new Butterfly punch. I used crystal effects and green micro beads on the butterfly.
I have lots more to share about convention, so stay tuned. :o)
