What Happened Here?

Wow!! This is my basement after the Halloween class/card class/scrapbook class last night. It was a lot of fun....and very busy. I was pretty exhausted afterward and didn't clean up. So here is my mess, and for those of you who know me, this is pretty typical.

These are the cards we made in the "man-pack" card class. My favorite is the owls. The "celebrate You" card was designed by Maralee Babcock. My version is a little more manly than hers was.

I will post more later about the new Big Shot club!!

Big Shot Sample

Sorry it's been so long since I've posted. Just the same as everyone else, I have been very busy. Someday I will find a good balance in my life where I can get everything done....this is not the day.

This sample is using our new Sizzix Big Shot. I love this machine. It die cuts not only paper, but many other materials. You can use any die on this machine no matter what system it uses.

The card uses Ruby Red and Naturals Ivory Cardstock. The stamp set is Season of Friendship from our new Holiday Mini catalog. I used chocolate chip, ruby red, and pumpkin pie ink. I also used pumpkin pie ribbon. The last thing....a horizontal slot punch. Of course I had to use a punch.

Have a great day!

New Christmas Paper

Here are some projects that I made for my designer series paper class at the upcoming Getaway Weekend. The projects are using the Holiday Treasures paper out of the new catalog. The first project is a gift card holder. It also uses the baja breeze striped grosgrain. The second project is a cd holder. This makes an awesome little gift. I usually make a cool Christmas cd and give it to friends as a small gift. This project also uses the baja breeze ribbon and the "Deer Friends" stamp set. I stamped in baja breeze and punched the image with a 1 3/8 circle punch, then punched out a scallop circle in old olive. I punched a small hole at the top of the scallop with a 1/16th hole punch and then thread a piece of hemp twine through.

The last project is a card using the "Big on Christmas" stamp set. I think this is still my favorite Christmas set. First I stamped the image using black staz on ink. I used the real red marker, old olive marker, pumpkin pie marker, and a blender pen with baja breeze to color in the image. The card base is using the baja breeze card stock.

A Little Monkey for You

Who doesn't love a cute little sock monkey? This little guy is one of the many new sets in the catalog. I stamped him in Black Staz On ink on a piece of vellum cardstock. When the image was dry I colored him in on the reverse side with my close to cocoa, creamy caramel, pretty in pink and barely banana markers. I backed the vellum piece with white card stock and then close to cocoa. Finally, my card base is pink pirouette card stock. This is one of our new In Colors and I absolutely love it! It's such a soft, feminine color. I painted my daughter's room in this color a few weeks ago. It's easy to pick out colors when I can just take a scrap of card stock in to color match. Yes.....I am obsessed.

Happy Friday!

My Very First Post!!

This is my very first post to my new blog. I'm pretty excited!! My name is Melissa Roberts and I have been a Stampin' Up demonstrator for just over 2 years. I really wanted to start a blog so that I could share Stampin' Up news, my creations, class information and "how-to's" for all of my customers, friends and demonstrators.

Thanks for looking, I will post more soon.
