Pastor's Retreat Make and Take

We had the privilege these past few days to get away to a pastor's retreat in Camp Kalaqua Florida.  We had a wonderful time.  We re-connected with some college friends and met a lot of new people.  However, the highlight of my week was the business expo.  All the pastor's wives had the opportunity to set up a display of any home business that we may be involved in.  So, I brought all new product form the Stampin' Up! fall/winter mini catalog and a make and take project using all the beautiful produts from the 2012 - 2013 catalog.  There were approximately 50 ladies.  Julie, my sister-in-law was a huge help!  Everyone had a great time and I had the opportunity to make some new friends.

Here are a couple of pictures of the make and take card.

I hope you enjoy it!

Sailing By on Your Birthday!

Here is the fourth project I designed for the current session of UStamp.  I love this cute little stamp set.  Whenever you purchase the "Moving Forward" stamp set a portion of the proceeds gets donated to the Ronald McDonald House of Charities to help support families with children who have serious illnesses.  To learn more about ways to help, please visit the Stampin' Up website.  

This project was inspired by the little sailing boat in the Moving Forward stamp set.  I hope you like it.  It's perfect for putting some candy or a gift card for a little boy or even just to decorate a little boy's room or a nursery.  You can always adjust the sizes to make it even bigger or smaller. I hope you have fun recreating this cute little project.

Keep Calm and Stamp On!

Hello Everyone!

It's time for a new session of UStamp and you will not want to miss it.  I designed 4 different projects with complete step by step PDF tutorials for this session that I hope you'll love and will want to re-create.

All these projects are created with 100% Stampin' Up products with the exception of a few items that they do not carry such as permanent markers and such.

Here is my first project - Baby Buggy Favor Box

Pictures for project # 2 - Dress Favor Box

Project # 3 - Friendship Watering Can

Welcome! My blog is currently in the process of being set up. So please be sure to come back for more fun and beautiful inspirations.

I'm very excited to welcome you to the UStamp with Dawn and Friends!! 3rd Anniversary Celebration Edition 2012 World Showcase Blog Hop.
Even though I have been designing for UStamp for about 2 years, this is the first blog hop I have ever participated in and I'm very excited about it. If you have been following the Blog Hop from the beginning, you have just been wowed by Kirsten Brown's Matchbook mini scrapbook. Kirsten is an amazing designer full of fun and creative ideas. I love How she used the My Digital Studio (MDS) software from Stampin' Up to create the cover of her mini book.
If you are just joining the Blog Hop, no problem, as you can start at any point. All the Designer's Blogs are linked together so you will be able to see ALL the FANTASTIC projects we have for you.
I love creating things that are stamped, current and trendy. This is why I created this 2 page layout using a clean and simple approach by using clouds, banners with 3D embellishments.
As a Special Thank You for stopping by my blog I am giving away BLOG CANDY!!

Please leave a comment about my project to be entered for a chance to win a dynomite prize of 12 inches of ALL the BRAND NEW Stampin' Up! RIBBONS!!
