I’m still broadcasting from sunny Destin, FL!  For some reason, I’m having a hard time making new projects.  The beach keeps calling my name!  I guess that’s what vacation is for – so here are a few more swaps from this month’s meeting all using the new set Circle Circus.

The first one was the most popular one at our meeting – and I can’t remember the name of the lady who made it!  Hopefully someone will tell me so I can put her name on here.  She really did a great job with this one.

This one was done by Mona and also uses our top note die.

This one was done by Heather – it’s got a great fall feel to it.

Well, back to the sun and surf!  More on Friday!

Last night was our local demonstrators meeting.  Between the holiday, and having company, and getting ready to be out of town again, I was a little pressed for time to create my swaps.   Luckily, my first order from the new catalog arrived just in time!

I ended up playing with the new embossing folder – Elegant Bouquet – It is so easy to use and makes a great starting point.

I used some of our new In colors – Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo and Crushed Curry and random sentiments from the new set Teeny Tiny wishes.  I sanded the image after embossing, and used the white gel pen to  color the centers of the flowers.   The sentiments are layered using the small oval, large oval, and scalloped oval punches.

Here’s a close up of the card to show more of the embossing detail.

I’ve been looking for inspiration for my convention swaps that I absolutely must get started on soon!  Convention is just a few weeks away!   One of my favorite places to look for inspiration is on my fellow demo’s blogs.   I was looking through Paula’s blog  and found this absolutely cute peaks and valley card.  I think I will definitely have to try this for one of my convention swaps!

And here’s some other projects Paula’s done that use our new products!  These are so cute, I just had to share them!

Time to get off of here and get stampin’!

Welcome to Port of Call #12 on Stampin’ Addicts 2009 Bon Voyage Blog Hop!

Here we explore Stampin’ Up!’s really fun set Big Bold Birthday .

The first attraction at Port 12 is this wonderful scrapbook page.  The pictures are from my nephew’s 4th birthday party at a firehouse.  He and all the boys were dressed in their firemen jackets and hats.  It was sooo cute.    This page shows him blowing out the candles on his cake which is perfect for the set Big Bold Bithday!

Below is a quick run down of what I used in making this page.  Be sure to check back on Wednesday when I’ll post the facing page that coordinates with this one  and share more details on some of the little touches on the page.

Cardstock:  Barely Banana Textured cs, Ballet Blue cs, Real Red cs, Certainly Celery cs; Stamp set:  Big Bold Birthday; Ink:  Ballet Blue, Certainly Celery, Real Red,  Barely Banana, Basic Black.  Accessories:  Scalloped Oval Punch, Large Oval Punch.

Our second attraction is a favor box for some lucky kid’s birthday party!   This was a lot of fun to make.  I can just imagine it filled with candy and small toys.   The card in the back has space to right each child’s name so that you can use it as a placecard as well.   On Thursday I’ll be posting the details on how to make this lovely box!

Our next attractions are a couple of cards using this set – It seems obvious that you can make a birthday card with the set, so I thought it would be fun to do something a little  different.  The first card is a get well card.
