Who is the New Stamper?

This amazing lady, Sylvia, came to a stamping class a few years ago as the result of an article that she read about me in a local newspaper.  Since that time not only did I get to introduce her to my love of paper crafting and Stampin' Up!, but she has fast become to a very special friend to me!

She is a dedicated friend, customer, and a member of the Stamp-Patty's team!  She has become a convention addict just like me too!

More importantly than me, she is the most favorite person to our dog, Scooby Doo!  There is something about when Sylvia arrives that Scooby just has to be with her!
Recently Scooby decided that being at Sylvia's feet was just not good enough!  The seat next to her was available so Scooby took full advantage and decided to stamp right along with her!

Thought I would also share one of the scrapbook layouts that we recently did at our all day scrapping event!  This was one of the favorites of the day!  It is amazing how when you think outside of the box you can create sand castles using our framelits!  Take a close look at the 2nd page.  Can you tell which framelits were used?

How about the birds?  Can you tell how those were created?  I'd LOVE to see your comments on the blog!  How about a prize for the person who points out the largest number of correct answers??????  Leave a comment on the blog!!

Spring Banner

I thought that I had finally escaped the winter of 2014....to my horror, I woke to snow on the ground on Wednesday morning!!  Last weekend I was riding my motorcycle in a sweathshirt (70 degrees) and Wednesday snow!!!  I can't stand it!!!

To help ease the pain of the cold returning, I thought I would share my Spring Banner with you all to help cheer me up!

It is not too late for you to create one of these for your very own!  I used the Burlap Floral Kit from our Occasions catalog for all of the embellishments on the banner.  The only exception to this are the beautiful butterflies!  I used one of the Sizzix dies for those! I would be MORE than happy to cut butterflies for you to use on a banner of your own!  Message me ASAP if you would like to create one of these beauties for your very own!

I hope that you all had a Blessed Easter and enjoyed the bit of sunshine that surrounded you and your loved ones!  I know we did!  Here's to more spring days and hopefully the arrival of summer sooner than later!!

Congrats Blog Hop

Welcome back to our fabulous Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop!!!  This month our theme is a bit broader which means many fantastic ways to say congratulations or con"grad"ulations!  If you were one of the viewers that showed me some "LOVE" last month, be sure to scroll down to the bottom of this post to see if you are the lucky winner of a stamp set!!!

For my first card it just doesn't get any easier than this!  Using whisper white card stock I created the card and the top layers.  On the top layer I used my Simply Scored tool to create the "creases".  A scrap piece of white paper rolled up is the diploma!
For the second card, I just had to create a wedding card!  I have a friend at work that will be getting married in June and I thought it would be perfect time to get a jump on things!  This project is created with the Flower Shop stamp set and the Label Love stamp set.  The colors are crumb cake, crisp cantaloupe, and pistachio pudding.  For added affects, I used our white paper lace doilies and the little leaves sizzlit.  For my final touch I used the mini butterfly punch with some mini pearls.

I couldn't decide which project to share with you all for this hop, so I chose both of them!  lol

AND THE WINNER IS...... Joan Smith!!  You left me a fabulous comment on my blog on March 15 @ 11:32 am.  Please email me at stampthis2004@yahoo.com so I can arrange to get your FREE stamp set to you!!!!
