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
