DVD Photo Album

I made this gift for a friend. It is the metal DVD case covered in the Sweet Pea DSP and the clear envelopes hold the photos. Satin ribbon and buttons and brads always make a finishing touch.

Leadership 2010 Highlights

This was the stage and theme for Leadership...."love what you do", do that in all you do and life will be pretty darn good, don't you think!

This is Dawn, she is Stampin Up's Demonstrator of the Year. You can find her at Ustamp. And what a fun lady with lots of energy she is.....find her link on BFF's blog.

Leadership 2010

Dale shared a wonderful message with everyone. This company truly loves its demonstrators and puts them first in so many areas. We do love what we do! But Stampin Up makes it easy.

Shelli's demonstrations on stage are so inspiring and creative, its no wonder she is a success.

We were given quilt squares to use in our demonstrations, so Shelli shared ways to use them. The company made these for us and if you haven't noticed, we don't have sewing machines in the catalog....BUT the Big Shot is such a great tool for quilters, it cuts 8 pieces of fabric shapes at one time....

Coffee Chocolates

I covered this box of chocolates for Becky. They are in the shapes of coffee cups, so I just wanted one of them to show. So I punched the paper to line up with one. This is the NEW paper in the NEW mini catalog for Valentines.

Leadership Gifts

Ok when we go to Convention or Leadership as we did this past week, we do gifts for friends and swaps. So this is one of my gifts to BFF and all of you who know her, it can't be something "ok" ! I used one of the new stamps sets and made 3X3 cards to fit in the magnet boxes.

Using the Scraps

Terri and I talked and she was thinking she wanted a gift for this person and that, but time was running out....so....while she finished up her gum wrappers, I put together 2 scrapbook boxes for her to add photos to and give as those extra gifts. They turned out so cute. I wish I would have done more and much sooner. Tessa was not into leaving us alone....

More Office Gifts

Begin this post at the bottom...

We didn't get done before she went to work, so she came back to play way into the evening...but we had a bottle of wine and help from Tessa kitty...

Terri heard what Jackie was doing so she came over before work to do similar gum wrappers....She used the Simply Scrapbook Kit to make hers and they turned out very cute and her co workers loved them.

Gift Cards with Gum

Jackie needed gifts for her office, so she asked if I would help her put something together. We designed a gum wrapper that would also hold a gift card. They turned out very cute. I meant to post this sooner, just didn't get the pictures loaded....so not to late to share, right!
