Fairy Celebration

Hello stampers!

We had a very soggy Saturday here in Southwestern PA.  More than 3 inches of rain fell!  Yikes!  We have a volunteer fire department here and they have an annual "Riverfest" celebration as a fundraiser.  Yep, you guess it - Riverfest was this weekend as well!  The resilient fire department and flexible members of the community made it all work - and a great time was had by all!

In between Christmas cards last week, I worked on some non holiday projects as well.  Today's card is one of those  projects.  I love the Fairy Celebration set in the annual catalog, so I took the opportunity to get out my aqua painters to color the main image for this card.  Then, I stamped and water-colored another of the big flower and snipped it out.  It is attached with a Stampin' Dimensional.  I added Wink of Stella accents to the flowers, the fairy wings, and the fairy's hair.

Christmas in July - Holly Christmas

Hello stampers!

I got to view another short video of some of the new products Wednesday morning.  Good stuff is coming, I promise!  You won't be disappointed!

But first, I have a new card from my Christmas in July series for you.  This one evolved while I was making it.  The finished product is not what I envisioned, but I really like it.  Hope you do, too!

Before I share my card, just a reminder to stop back tomorrow,  When my very talented sister saw the theme for this week, she sent me a special card to share with you.  I don't want you to miss it!!!

Now, my card:

Christmas in July - Tags

Hello stampers!

I got my first glimpse at a few of the products coming in this year's holiday catalog.  You are going to love them!!!  I can't wait until I get some of the products in my hands next week and can start sharing with you!  One of the biggest perks of being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator is the ability to see and order from the new catalog before the general public.  It's truly one of my favorite perks!

If you like the idea of getting your hands on the new products early too, then why not consider becoming a Stampin' Up! demo?  I would love to welcome you to my team!  Message me for additional details!

I have a another Christmas in July project for you today.  But first, an update.  Last night I kept looking at the horizontal and vertical cards I posted.  They didn't look right.  Something from my design was off.  But what was it?  Finally it hit me!  I forgot to add the bows!   Doh!  So, here is a new picture of those same cards - with the bow.  Much better, I think.  Do you agree?



And now today's project.  I've been working on some Christmas tags for a future class.  Typically I don't share class projects here, but these are prototypes, and after what I've seen from the new catalog, I'm pretty sure they will change.  So, here they are.
