More Punch Art

I love this gymnast!  It is a little goodie bag that was created with punches.  There is no Demo name on the bag, but she has given credit to more punch art to:

Punch Art

I received this swap from Jean Anderson at the Seattle Regionals.  I like how she used punched to create this lamb--too cute!

Card Swap

I received this card at the Seattle Regionals with no name.  I like how she used the oval punch and created vases for the flowers--too cute!

Trendy Trees

This card was done by my fellow SU Demo; Sandi Lindsay.  These trees are so much fun!

Seattle Regional Swaps

This is a card that was done by my Stampin' Sister, Rhonda.  To get the gold flowers, she used the bleaching technique on the basic gray cardstock.

Under the Stars

I got this idea from fellow SU Demo; Elaine Paget.  She is known as our 3D Queen of our group.  To make this, you use 3 x 4 inch squares.  I used the Good Morning Sunshine DSP with Under the Stars stamp set.

Stampin' Up Seattle Regionals

We sat with fellow demo; Heather Leech at Regionals.

Stampin' Up Seattle Regionals

Here are a couple of pictures at the entrance of the Seattle Regionals.  My Stampin' Sister had to have her birthday present with her for her picture.  Can you tell that her favourite color is PURPLE?

Banner and buttons

My Banner and matching buttons is the fabulous work of Michelle Laycock.  If you are considering a banner for your blog, Michele is the go to Creative Director!  I love how she did my siggie and watermark for my pictures as it is similar to my actual signature!  I am looking forward to working with Michelle again.  Thanks so much Michelle!

Seattle Regionals

I am off to the Seattle Regionals with my Stampin' Sister, Rhonda.  This picture was taken of us last time we traveled together to the 2005 Portland Regionals.  We are with Co-Founder and CEO of Stampin' Up! Shelli Gardner and our local Demonstrator Friend; Eleonor.  Looking forward to having a good time!  Before we actually go to Regionals, we will be doing some power shopping.  Gotta love shopping in the US...

Here is another fun picture from the 2005 Portland Regionals.  This is taken with Jaron Winder who was part of Stampin' Up's training team.  He will be greatly missed from all of the Stampin' Up! Events!

Here is a perfect card for that "Special Someone".

So Tweet Chip Board

Here is another piece from the So Tweet Chip Board.  I covered the bird with DSP and used the Chit Chat rub ons.  I made the scalloped circle with the Big Shot die.

So Tweet Chip Board

This is one of the many pieces that you get in the "So Tweet" Chip Board.  The owl is covered in DSP and the other pieces are inked with craft ink.  I used the Chit Chat rub ons for the salutation

Walk in the Park with Beautiful Butterflies

Ali Edwards is another favorite Scrapbook Guru I find inspiring.  I recall seeing this post a while ago and thought it would be a nice project to make.  When Stampin' Up came out with this butterfly die, I knew it would be the perfect project to make.  I used the new Walk in the Park DSP along with the half pearls from the Pretties Kit.  Hope you like my version.

Sizzix Pop Up Cake

I made this Sizzix Pop-Up Cake card for my Stampin' Sister's birthday.  It is her last birthday in her 40's.  She doesn't turn 49 for another couple of weeks, but since we are going away next weekend to the Stampin' Up! Seattle Regionals, I wanted to give her her birthday gift for the trip.  As soon as I saw it, I knew it was her because it in was her favourite colour-- purple.  I am always good at "feeding her habit"!  Another good reason for this gift is that she is a Fitness Guru...

Heidi Swapp

I am so excited, I will be attending "All Day with Heidi Swapp" in Edmonton.  I will be attending with my cousin, Christina.  

Heidi Swap is on my list of Scrapbooking Gurus.  This past year, she and her family lived in Beijing.  I enjoyed reading her blog entries as it was neat to see it from another person's perspective as I travelled to Beijing two years ago.
