Goulish Googlie Treats


Today I am off to a mini convention with some of my fellow SU demo pals. We are each bringing a project for everyone to make. This is my little treat bag. There will be treats of some sort in there, but I just hadn't figured it out yet when I scheduled this post. Hopefully no one checks out my blog this morning. Don't want to ruin the surprise!

What Goes Around Comes Around

You know how fashions come and go and then come back again? That is kind of like me with SU! I decided to sign up to be a demo again. I missed it for the year and a couple of months I was not a demo and with the sign up special they have going, I couldn't resist any longer.

If you are going to order $100 of Stampin' Up! products, why not just order the fully customizable starter kit and get $125 worth of product and free shipping? I have a link in my sidebar to the demo agreement where you can take advantage of this like I did. What have you got to lose?

Balloon Scene


This card was inspired by Lynn Weiss's beautiful card HERE.  I think I had a few too many layers of hills so the center didn't emboss as well as I would've liked. But it is still cute!

Elegant Wedding


My sister in law got married this weekend. This was the card I made for them.

Pretty Little Bow


I came across these beautiful bows that Penney Smiley used in her tutorial found HERE. I had to figure out how to make a bow like that. Well, my bow isn't quite the same, but I like it. I'll have to get her tutorial on payday so I can see how she really does it.

I used the Extra-Large Oval Punch from SU! and here's how I made my bow.

 Take a piece of patterned paper that is twice as wide as your punch and fold it in half.

 Line up your punch so that you are on the fold,
but leave a little gap there so the ovals will be connected.

 See here we have two ovals connected on the fold.

 Take one side and glue it down in the middle.

Now glue the other side down in the middle.

 
I flipped it over and ta-da! Now just add a button or some
other embelishment in the middle and glue some tails on the back.

Over the Hill

One of my coworkers just turned 70! How crazy is that? We had a little lunch for him with cake and I just had to make this card.

Here is a close up of the hills. See the dimension? Each layer is up on dimensionals. I love making hills.

You Can Never Have Too Many Birthday Cards

Uh-oh! This the last of the cards I made on the recent days I spent stamping. I had better get inky again soon!

I've got new goodies coming this week so that is the perfect excuse.
