Note Card Swap at Quarterly

Another Quarterly meeting for the NC SU Demos is in the books and I think it was a success!  Marianne, Debbie and I met at the Wingate Hotel about noon on Friday and after making numerous trips back and forth from our car to the meeting room, we got everything set up and arranged the way we wanted it.  We were surprised that we were done by 2:00!!  The room was just perfect for our needs.  We ended up with 33 people so we weren't too crowded and were able to leave a large table in the center of the room where we based our demonstrations from.  There was a large closet in the room so we could store our excess in it and pull them out as needed.  After setting up, we headed over to Joe Fish to relax for a bit and have lunch before the crowd started coming.  And then the fun began!  We got everyone signed in and gave out goodie bags and started working on our shoebox cards.  We headed to bed a little after midnight, leaving a few still working on their projects.  Saturday was filled with more fun projects.  I started out the morning with a box card which everyone seemed to enjoy.  Here are a few samples that I had made to show everyone.  The ones that everyone made were kept simple.  The idea was to get the basic idea of how to make the box card and then your imagination can take over when you get home.

If you would like to make a Box Card, let me know and I will email the instructions to you.

One of the swaps that we did on Saturday was a Note Card Swap.  We only had 14 participants but I think it was a great swap!  Now I have several Christmas presents ready to go!!  Here is one of mine:

When it opens, there are two clear pockets on either side to slide the note cards in.  I used the clear envelopes and cut one side open to slide the cards and envelopes in.

More Occasion samples for you!

I am fighting a cold so a short post today.  These are a few more cards that I snapped a picture of from the display board at Quarterly.  Hope these are giving you some ideas for using the stamps in the Occasions catalog.

I have stamp club this week and will be sharing our cards from it using the Occasions catalog also.

Birthday Blooms (pg 9)  If you like to color or watercolor, this is a great set!

Isn't this paper gorgeous?  It is the Birthday Bouquet DSP on pg. 9

Birthday Blooms again - this time in a color resist technique.

Time to start on your Valentines! This beautiful Bloomin' Heart Thinlit Die makes it easy!!  (pg 16-17_

This valentine uses the stamp set, Bloomin' Love (pg 17)

Love this use of the Botanical Gardens DSP (pg 27)  You can get the DSP, framelits AND stamp set as a bundle and save 15%!!  What a deal!

This beautiful card was made by JoAnne Hewlins.  She won the WOW card contest with this beauty!  I can just guess at how long it took her to put this all together.  It will have to go to someone really special!  She used the Botanical Blooms stamp set and framelits.  Also, check out the pretty ribbon - you can find it in the Annual Catalog on pg 159.

Another beauty using Botanical Blooms.  I just love that leaf framelit!!

Quarterly Swaps

It's about time I shared some of the things I made for the Wilmington SU Quarterly.

First off, here is my 3D item.  I love the old fashion Christmas Designer Paper in the holiday catalog (Home for Christmas - pg. 9).  If you don't mind "fussy cutting," this paper is great.  On the Square Pillow Box below, I stamped snowflakes on the Wild Wasabi box and then wrapped a piece of the DSP (I tore the edge) around the box.  Next I stamped the circle with Real Red ink using the Among the Branches stamp set (pg 39).  I cut out the little deer from the DSP and adhered him under the red circle.  Next was the wooden Snowflake (pg 23).  I tied a piece of Linen Thread and adhered it over the snowflake.  Don't see it?  Well, I forgot to do it on this box so just use your imagination!  Inside of each pillow box was a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup!

I just love the Christmas Cuties stamp set (pg 19) and such fun coloring him on this tag.  I used the Lost Lagoon Striped Cotton Ribbon (in annual catalog) and stapled it with the sentiment from Holly Jolly Greetings (pg 34) onto my tag.  I used the great Lots of Labels Framelits to cut the Lost Lagoon, Pear Pizazz and Whisper White card stock.  The added touch is the metallic doily!

I did two tags for the swap, volunteering to be a Swap Angel for the tag swap.  I should have plenty of tags this Christmas!  For this tag, I layered the Cucumber Crush cardstock over the Real Red.  I punched both of them with the Banner Triple Punch.  The sentiment is cut out using the Lots of Labels Framelits. I punched out a snowflake for the top and tied the Real Red Pom Pom Trim through the hole.

This card is my favorite!  But I won't do this many layers again on a swap card!!  The ballerina was hand cut from the Sparkly Seasons stamp set (pg 40).  I cut out about 30 of them!  (Gave me something to do while watching tv at night!)  You can't tell it but there is a clear transparency on top of the ballerina and the Silver Glimmer Paper.

I'll be spending the day tomorrow at the hospital.  Sonny is having his other hip replaced tomorrow.  Hope everything goes as well as the first one did.  We have to be at the hospital at 5:45 AM!  Who gets up at that time of day????  Anyway, I better hit the sack!

Quarterly Projects

We arrived in Orlando safely although it did rain on us the whole way!  Hope that rain is going away this week!  We had a little trouble finding a hotel room for the night.  Not knowing how far we would get, we didn't make reservations for tonight.  My cell phone quit working on the way down.  I only have a month left on my contract so I am hoping I can revive it tomorrow.  Sonny and I are joining Ashley in Orlando this week for our first time at Disney!  Ashley has been before but not Sonny and I.  I am looking forward to seeing what all the hype is about Disney World and I hope I have comfortable enough shoes because I understand a LOT of walking is involved!

I will be posting some of the Quarterly projects this week while I am gone.  Hope you enjoy them.

These are the projects we made at Quarterly.  This little birds nest is made using the Envelope Punch Board.  Luckily I took this picture when I first came home with it but I noticed Sunday night that there is only one chocolate egg left in the nest!  Hmmmm - wonder who????

And isn't this mushroom adorable??  It was made using the Curvy Box Template.  I haven't gotten that template and this cute project almost is putting me over the edge!  I have seen so many cute boxes made with the template.

3x3 Quarterly Swaps

Marianne and I traveled to Raleigh this weekend for the NC Demos Quarterly Get-together.  It is so much fun to see old friends there and meet new ones.  I can't wait till our next one in September in Wilmington!  We did several swaps and although I told myself in advance I would only do one swap, I ended up doing all three - 3D swap, 3x3 card swap and full card swap.

Here are the 3x3 cards I received in the swap:  (Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture of my own swap!)

I think these make cute little gift enclosure cards.

Happy Birthday to my little sister, Marianne.  Today (Monday) is her birthday!  She is catching up with me!!
Marianne getting started with her stampin'!

This was the "voting" table.  We voted on the best "WOW" card and the card that was the most demonstratable.  Can you guess which ones won?

If you guessed the purple flower card for a WOW!, you are correct.  Isn't it gorgeous?!  It was made by Denise James.

My card was voted as the most demonstratable (is that a word?).  It was also my swap card.  Here it is close up:

I love the colors in this card.  I used the Flower Patch stamp set along with the Feels Good sentiment.  I masked the center of the card while I stamped the flowers and when I finished with that stamping, I removed the mask and stamped the sentiment.
