Christmas in July!

My Christmas in July class was held on Sunday, and it was a huge success! We created 5 awesome Christmas cards with matching envelopes. Here is a photo of the cards we created.

I'm not sure which one is my favourite, but I am leaning toward the Noel card. It is the same technique used in my previous post.
Sorry you missed this class? no problem...I have many events coming up! Check out my schedule HERE.
Have a creative day!

Fun and Fabulous Friday...Hearts

I swapped a lot at convention. Swapping is a great way to get new ideas. This card was based on a swap, though I changed it up quite a bit. The main idea I got from the swap card was using the Hearts framelits to cut the heart shape, then add the strips of paper behind it, so it kind of looks quilted. COOL!

Here's how to make this card:
-Cut your Soft Suede card base 5 1/2" by 8 1/2" and score at 4 1/4"
-cut Midnight Muse mat piece 5 1/4" by 4"
-cut Very Vanilla piece 5" by 3 3/4"
-emboss Very Vanilla piece with the folder of your choice (I used Chevron)
-Use the Hearts framelits, 3rd size from the smallest, and place on your Very Vanilla piece and cut.
-cut 5 strips of Designer Series paper 1/2" by 3" and place them behind the heart.
-Adhere the Midnight Muse to the card base, then adhere the Very Vanilla piece to the Midnight Muse.
-Take the heart shape that you cut out and pop it up.
-Pop up sentiment over both hearts.

Also, my Fun and Fabulous card class is tonight at 7.00pm! Hope to see you!

Momento Mall means re-packing!

This is a fellow demonstrator, in the lobby of the hotel I was at, with all her stuff strewn about, trying to figure out what goes where. She was over by 2 pounds, so she is re-arranging all her stuff to fit AND be under the maximum weight allowance!
In my case, momento mall shopping shopping for my Stamper's Club and my upline and sideline, meant buying new luggage. Yes, you read that correctly...I actually had to go to Macy's and BUY a suitcase to bring home Momento Mall stuff. I was lucky though...Macy's had a sale. I got a 5 piece luggage set for 62.00 (that INCLUDES the tax!) I'm such a shopper. (and I couldn't blame Stamp Bear because he was at home)! So when Mike picked me up at the airport, not only did he forget I was blonde, he didn't recognize the luggage I was carrying! LOL!

This is Salt Lake City taken from the airport.

Here I am with my room mates...Lisa, Suzanne and Lisa.
Now for some random pics of me with fellow demonstrators:

OK, so remember, my Fun and Fabulous Friday night class is THIS Friday July 27 at 7:00pm and my Christmas in July class is THIS Sunday the 29 at 1:00pm...click HERE for details! Would love to see you at either class! (plus all my swap cards will be available for you to look through)!

Very pretty cards above. Below, a cool use of the Lacy and Lovely set. You could do the same with the Circle Circus set.

Perfect for Nurse Appreciation week, or as a get well soon card! I LOVE this!

A pic of some of my faves, notice the first card with the bicycle is upside down. I didn't get a whole lot of sleep at convention. :)

Lost count of what day this is.

What day is today? Friday? I've lost track.
While standing in line for general session this morning, I saw Ronda Wade. We look good!

 This is Kerry Waterman, on Kay's team from Newfoundland. She is stunning! and we agreed we are both going to San Diego next year! That is where the weekend getaway is.

A Hallowe'en swap...sorry if this is a repeat pic...I have lost track of everything! I even missed my WOW card swap yesterday :(

Tonight, I have a MDS class. I will try to take pics of swaps, and what I won from Prize Patrol! (I have won every convention I've been to). Also, I have exciting news to share!
Sorry I do not have a Fun and Fabulous to share this Friday...but these Hallowe'en treats are cute!

Convention...Awards Night

Awards Night is a convention highlight. We get to recognize those who earned milestones, and awards within the company. Cynthia Millan is a demo from Ottawa who, in her first year, has earned: Rising Star (only one in Canada this year!), Achiever's Bonus, Grand Vacation, and Founder's Circle. This is HUGE! Earlier today, she asked if I would be her guest for awards night, and sit with her in the reserved seating. Here she is having walked on stage for Achiever's.

This is the exclusive Founder's Circle bag.

 Here are 2 fellow demos from Ottawa, Melissa and her downline Alice, both looking GORGEOUS!

 Here I am with the MEN of SU! I am between KevinTheesen and Dennis Cochran, and I do not remember the third gentleman's name.

Kay Smith texting her daughter Marlayne to let her know ahe is #2 in CANADA!
I have uploaded TONS of photos on Facebook, so find me on facebook and friend me! Follow me on Facebook for tons of updates.

Momento Mall!

Momento Mall! One of the highlights of Convention. People actually line up for HOURS to get in first! I am not one of these ladies. Here are pics of some of the merchandise I purchassed at Momento Mall.

One of the tote bags...there are different designs this year.

More swag!
This is my favourite thing...it's a day planner (monthly also). It has magnetic closure.

This is it open.

OK, I will post more tomorrow...but you can also check out my facebook for more pics!

Salt Lake City (Day 2)

First, I apologize for the poor picture quality...the light was wrong in the Convention Centre. :)
Above, a pic of Kay Smith and her team from Newfoundland.
Below, a pic of me and Kay.

THE BAG! It is the one from the back of the Stampin' Success magazine!

This is the backdrop to where Shelli Gardner will be sitting for photo ops.

OK, so according to the sign, I AM Canada. Wow, that's a lot of responsibility!
I went to Momento Mall, but the line was at least an hour long. So I will go later. I am off to the Riverton Tour, and will post more later this afternoon, so check back!
