First Birthday's

One of Aubrey's first friends celebrated her First Birthday yesterday and we were so excited that we couldn't wait until her party. We made this card especially for her and it just had to have cupcakes on it because it matched the theme to her gift!

The colors used for the card are Pool Party, Summer Starfruit and Rich Razzleberry! I have retired ribbon that I refuse to get rid of because I love it so much and I use it all the time. This ribbon is from the 2009 catalogue...I don't normally hold onto things so long if they are not being used often, but when it comes to craft supplies, I always feel I can use it for something.

I used the International Bazzar Designer Paper and Create-A-Cupcake stamp set and Punch (another coordinating stamp set and punch)!! The scallop circle was cut out using the Big shot and the Scallop Circle Duo Bigz (which I just noticed is retired as well.)

For all the products on the card, please check out my online store. You can also join us on August 28th for out next class.

We had so much fun watching Zoey open her gift and can't wait to party with her on Saturday!

First of all, I want to thank some wonderful girls who persuaded me to start up with Stampin' Up again! The girls in my life are AWESOME. They are all very creative and I can't wait to see where this takes us all in our creativity!

I also want to thank my upline for giving me the confidence that I can do this! I have so many ideas for future classes and how to share what I love!

And another huge thank you to my husband, for taking good care of our beautiful baby boy while I had a great night Stampin'.

Class started last night with some fun conversation and WINE and ended with everyone excited for the August Class... which BTW is on August 28th at 7pm if anyone out there feels like joining! I like to call the cards we made the 4 B's: Baby, Birthday, Beer & Butterfly.

As you can see, I was well prepared and very excited/ nervous to host my first class (even Aubrey was excited).

A lot of the cards were embossed using the big shot and I think I got everyone comfortable using it. I love all the embossing folders that Stampin' Up offers. They add great tecture to any card. I have to say they are probably my favorite thing in the catalogue! We also used some punches! Especially on the beer card. It is so easy to create a card like that with the different circle punches. 

I don't want to forget to mention that the Holiday Catalogue is available to order from as of August 1, 2012. The holiday catalogue runs from August 1 - Jan 2, 2013 and it has a variety of great coordinating products! I will have a link to the holiday catalogue on August 1st. I'm also going to be creating a Christmas Card & Tag class in the near future.

Don't be afraid to click on the pictures. They will become larger and you can see more of the detail if you do!

I'm Back!

My blog is finally back up and running! So sorry I've been away for awhile, but life got pretty hectic after my last post!
I'm now a new mom to a happy 5 month old baby boy named Aubrey. Just before my last post, I found out we were pregnant with our first child. He makes our whole world!
Anyways, back to what I came on here to write about.
I became a demonstrator again and I'm very happy and nervous to be hosting my first class next week! Some great girls asked me to host a class for them and I was happy to oblige. So, stay tuned in the future for more pics and tips on cards I will be making!
