Global Stamping Friends August Hop - Celebrating Kids!

Hello to everyone reading from the USA and all around the Globe!  Today I'm joining a new monthly hop for the first time with other Stampin' Up Demonstrators from around the world! After living in Europe the past four years and now living back in the USA, it will be nice to feel connected to those overseas again!

While I don't have any human kids, I have two fur babies that I treat like children! They are a big part of our lives!

For my project this month, I highlighted the No Bones About It stamp set! This is a two step stamping set where you stamp the outline of the dino first then add the bones! With this option, you can stamp them together or separate.  Its a great set that's very versatile and perfect for kids creations!

This card is perfect for any kids birthday or great for any adult too that you think is GRRRREAT! On this card I did use the two step stamping and showcased all three dinos!  This would be a simple card to showcase during a stamping class, technique class, or to pass along to your favorite birthday kiddo!

ICS Blog Hop - Knotty Ways

The first Wednesday of the month is here and it's time for another edition of the Inspire, Create, and Share blog hop! This month's theme is "Knotty Ways" highlighting ribbon from our annual catalog as well as highlighting Holiday stamp sets!  
For this month's project, I am using the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set!  When this set first debuted in the Holiday Catalog last year, it was one of the first items that I ordered.  I was so happy that this set carried over to the annual catalog and I get to use it another year!

This month I wanted to highlight a project that weren't cards.  I hosted a Christmas in July class where we created these tags and tag holder box.  I used Lemon Lime Twist 1/2 inch Finely Woven Ribbon around the card box.  For the knots on the top of the tags, I used the Linen Thread to tie the bows and pull the project together.  

Aren't the little guys cute?  I love that this set has a coordinating punch so I don't have to hand cut these cuties out!

A HUGE Thank You!

Happy Monday readers!  I received a great piece of mail today, my certificate of promotion to the title of Silver with Stampin' Up!  

I want to give a BIG thank you to all of my team, hostesses, customers, and new friends I have met along the way that has helped me to achieve this accomplishment.  Without your support, I wouldn't have been able to achieve this!

This promotion is a big milestone for me as this was the title I held before we moved to Italy.  When we were there, I lost all of my titles and all of my team due to a military rule stating I could not run my home base business there.  When we returned, I attacked my business, networked my booty off, and promoted to where I was prior to moving, less than a year after our return to the States!

I look forward to seeing where my business takes me in the upcoming months and year.  Once again thank you to everyone and I can't wait to share my love of Stampin' Up and my creations with each and every one of you!

Southwest Stampers July Gathering

Happy Sunday!  This past week I attended the Southwest Stampers July gathering and had a great time!  We are a group of Stampin' Up Demonstrators located in and around Tucson.  It's always a blast when we get together as we swap projects, discuss business, and celebrate each others accomplishments.  

This was my swap card I made for our gathering.  I used the Bike Ride stamp set.  I love the bold colors of the Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist, and Bermuda Bay when they are paired together.  I used the Berry Burst Stampin' Write marker to color in the stamp for the dogs bandanna and stamped in in Crumb Cake ink.
