A Special Birthday Card

It has been a fabulous week celebrating with friends and family. First with Christmas and followed by my Mother's Birthday. Last night just her 4 children and spouses along with her sister & husband and my Dad went out to dinner. Tomorrow we are having a party including the rest of the family. It is one of those birthdays ending with a 0 so we are doing it up right! 

This is the card I made for her. The picture is a little dark but it is the best I could do before giving it away. Can you spot some new products?
I am in love with the Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper! See the tag? That fancy top was made with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and the textured was added with the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder! The pretty flowers were stamped with the Petite Petals stamp set and there is a coordinating Punch!

The Decorative Dots Embossing Folder is one of the upcoming Sale-a-bration items you will be able to earn for FREE with purchase. The rest will be available beginning January 3rd in the Occasions Catalog. Have you received a complimentary copy of the Occasions Catalog in the mail? If you haven't and would like one please contact me. 

25 New items were added to the Clearance Rack today...

and you don't want to miss out on the Weekly Deals...

I am off to make more things with my new box of goodies! 

Happy Stamping!

It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas!

How are your Christmas preparations coming along? I have to confess I have a few more cards to mail and a few more gifts to buy but I am relaxed about it. Last week's Kindergarten Christmas Program was a great way to start the celebration of the birth of our Lord, Jesus Christ.

If you are not quite ready, maybe these Weekly Deals will help you out. The Seasonal Stripes 8" x 8" Designer Album & Season of Style Designer Journaling Tags will help you get your photos off of your phone & computer after the holidays and on display where you can enjoy them!

Merry Christmas!

Women's Retreat 2013

I have just returned home from the most wonderful weekend Women's Retreat. Not only were we motivated and challenged to live a life worthy of our calling in Christ Jesus, I got to spend concentrated time with long-time girlfriends and new friends.
I am on the retreat planning team and once the theme, logo and colors are chosen I get to "work" designing the favors and gifts the attendees will receive throughout the weekend. This year, each of the 96 ladies were given a pen (not shown) on Friday evening. On Saturday morning the Elegant Eggplant favor box was at their place setting when they arrived for breakfast.
The little boxes were filled with candy and personalized so that once the candy was removed they could become a Hope Chest. We like to encourage one another with notes of encouragement (and some teasing) so there was also a box of Hope Notes at each table.

The bookmark I designed in My Digital Studio was our Saturday evening gift. I pulled words out of our key verse, Ephesians 1:18-20 to create the subway art style bookmark.

The final gift on Sunday morning was a devotional book so I used the Scallop Edge Border Punch on the white lunch bags and topped them with 1/2 of the Scallop Circle Bigz die decorated with 1/2 of a Tea Lace Paper Doily, Little Leaves Sizzlits, 1-1/4" and 7/8" Scallop Circle Punches, Large Rhinestone Basic Jewels and 5/8" Organza Ribbon. Our colors were Elegant Eggplant and Pear Pizzazz. But wait! The 5/8" Organza Ribbon only comes in Whisper White you say? Well, I can tell you that it dyes beautifully...
I placed an entire roll on some scrap paper, placed 18-20 drops of Elegant Eggplant re-inker into a Spritzer Bottle, filled it the rest of the way with 70% rubbing alcohol and spritzed away. It actually took 3 fillings to complete one spool of ribbon.

It dried quickly and although the color looks a little uneven in the picture the final pieces were beautiful.

As you can see, my job on the retreat planning team is prep work so at the actual event, while I am available to help as needed, I get to attend and enjoy all that we have planned. This weekend went so smoothly and was awesome all-around I can truthfully say I am ready to start planning for next year!

I love how the coordinated colors, stamps & punches and embellishments from Stampin' Up! make it so easy to create these added touches to our events! Thank you Stampin' Up!

I got the cute little favor box pattern from my fabulous upline Becky Roberts. Do you know what just one of the many perks of joining my team, Friends, Ink. is?
