Shoe Box SWAP

I made this card in preperation of a ShoeBox SWAP I am in at Claire Lawrence's house this Saturday. I used Real Red Cardstock, and the Naturals White, and Glorious Green. The stamp is from "Give Thanks". I used the Stampin' Up! watercolor pencils to color the image, and the Real Red cardstock is sponged using Certain Celery stamp pad.

Sentiment reads:
Give thanks for
the simple things
in life.

Card Front SWAP

I went to my first meeting at Kristin Fuller's house for Stampin Up on Monday July 21st. I was invited to bring a SWAP along. It had to use only Stampin Up product, which was currently avalable. So I used his stamp from the "For Father" set. The Card stock used was Real Red and Naturals White. I used the Stampin Up water color pencils to color the image. I don't currently have any embelishments from Stampin Up, so I couldn't add them. But The recievr could always add ribbon, or some brads/eyelets.

Sentiment reads:
May HAPPINESS touch your LIFE
today as you have so often
TOUCHED the lives of OTHERS.

My Fiscal year resolutions

My upline asked me to come up with some resolutions for this Fiscal year, and this is what I have come up with.

Here’s my resolutions (I’ll start small this year) for Stampin‘ Up:

1 Organize (and keep it organized) my craft room. For those who have never seen my craft room, this is a BIG job for me!!!

2. Create 1,000 cards with my Stampin Up sets, and donate them to Cards for St Jude’s, and Cards for Soldiers. (these are two Charity groups I belong to at Cricut.com)

3. Sell $1,200.00 worth of product. I know this is what the quota is, but selling it and not buying it all myself is the challenge!

4 Create more original cards, not just “scraplift” the ideas from others


Hello and welcome to my blog for my Stampin' Up!!! I will share different Stampin Up creations I have made here. Feel free to look around, and post a comment if you wish!!

I am new to the Stampin Up family, but I am very eager to get started! My Kit is scheduled to arrive on July 16th, and I can't wait!!
