Merry Christmas!!!


Well, it's Christmas Eve and we have lots of snow outside! It is so pretty! (I got irritated at someone earlier who drove down our street and made tire tracks!) Fortunately, I live in West Texas and it will probably all be gone by noon!! I can enjoy it this morning and still finish up last minute shopping this afternoon!

:) Gotta love the weather here!

I wanted to share the card I've created using the My Digital Studio software. I've ordered some online and will pick them up locally later today to send out (can you tell that I'm running late!!). I'll be putting these in the mail and hoping that everyone enjoys them. I loved doing this card with all of our family members on it. I've tried doing the Christmas letter, but it always seems that those don't go out until January (if I'm lucky). Hope you like it too.


I want to wish all of you a Very Merry, Blessed Christmas!!! I hope that you all enjoy this time with your family. May the Lord bless your time together as you celebrate His birth!

Christmas Card Class























Well, I'm finally having my Christmas Card class. This is one of the cards that we are going to make on Saturday. Hope you like it.

Saturday, October 24, 2009


Well the holidays are here and I like to make holiday cards. I made this one for a swap on SCS. Hope you like it.

The background is sponged. I used Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Barely Banana, Apricot Appeal, Pumpkin Pie, Regal Rose, Pink Passion, Pale Plum, Perfect Plum, and Elegant Eggplant. I rolled the wheel on a window sheet. It was a little tricky getting the brown for the path in just the right spot. I think it turned out pretty cute.

I'm working on Christmas cards now for a class during the week of Thanksgiving (yes I know - I'm crazy!). I'll post those when I get them figured out.

I'm having fun!!

Well, I've been playing with the new My Digital Studio and let me tell you ---- it's fun! I'm working on cards and scrapbooks. I even turned one card into a "movie" that I could e-mail to my GrandDaughter for her birthday today. Tell me how you like it.

I'm hoping that this will help improve my creativity and expand my horizons in design. Since I don't have to mess up a lot of cardstock and designer paper to get just the right look, it should be better. Cause you know that I hate wasting a lot of paper. And those of you that have seen me struggle to put together a simple scrapbook page, ought to know that this is going to be wonderful for me to design BEFORE I cut! I'm really excited about it.

Well - t wouldn't upload the video. I'll have to try again sometime. Here are the individual pages though.

Thanks shadowbox


This is one of the Definitely Decorative items. I took the saying and put it on the glass of a shadowbox. It took me three tries to get the insides the way I liked it so that you could read the writing on the glass. I finally got it right. I put Pumpkin Pie cardstock in the background which helped to make the writing stand out too. I hope you like it.

Plans for the Fall

WOW - it seems like a really LONG time (and it really has been) since I've had any sort of class or workshop. So I'm making up for it soon. I'll be doing an Open House on the Sept. 19 and a Stamp Camp on Oct. 3rd. I'm also planning a Christmas card class and hopefully a Christmas scrapbook class for Nov & Dec. I don't have anything firm on those yet. I'll try to post some pictures as soon as I get some of these prototypes done. Keep watching.

Swap Cards

Well, I finally got a chance to do some stamping. These are cards that I did for a new catalog swap on SCS. I hope you like them. As I look at these side by side, I realize that I'm "Layout Challenged" and I need to branch out in my layout designs. Even though they are all different, I think that there are two basic layouts here. I didn't set out for it to be that way, but......... (guess I need to spend more time looking through the SCS galleries? :o) )

When I made this one, I was thinking of my three beautiful Granddaughters - Princess Haylee, Princess Isabelle, and (coming soon) Princess Jadyn. This new stamp set is "Princess Time"


This one made me realize that Fall is just around the corner. I normally do "bright" colors so this was different for me to work with. It shows three of the new In-Colors: Dusty Druango, Crushed Curry and Soft Suede. This new stamp set used here is "Razzle Dazzle". This one also uses the new "Modern Label" punch and the new Sizzix magnetic mover and shaper.


This one is just a simple, elegant anytime card. This has the new in-color Bermuda Bay cardstock and polka dot ribbon. This new stamp set is "Of the Earth" which is a Hostess set.



This one is to honor those that are serving our country and to remind them they are in our prayers. The new stamp sets used are "Courage" and "Service and Sacrifice". The center image piece was done using the Sizzix Top Note die - cut once, turned 90 degrees and cut again. I really like the final cut.

I hope you like these cards.

Have a wonderful day!!!

New Cards


Oh WOW! How long has it been since I posted - much less stamped!! Well - THAT'S too long! I am so excited about what I've seen in the new catty. I love the new In-Colors. Here are a couple of cards that I did this week. One of them is for my SCS Secret Sister's birthday and the other is for a monthly SCS swap. I love how you can use the same colors, papers and stamp sets, but have the cards come out differently. The yellow color is the new Crushed Curry and the designer paper is Razzleberry Lemonade.

The stamp set is also a new one. It's called "Circle Circus". I really like it. There are several circle patterns that are really cute in it. The "Thinking of You" card also uses the new "Teeny Tiny Wishes" stamp set and the new "Modern Label" punch and matching Stampin' Up! exclusive Sissix Mover and Shaper die.

Thanks for looking. I hope you like it.

Wednesday, July 1, 2009

Well - It's time.......

Time to bring in a new SU catalog!!! Along with it come lots of new stamp sets, new Definitely Decorative items (formerly called Decor Elements), new Sissix dies, new Designer Series Papers, new In-Colors and on and on. I'll introduce you to some of these things in the next few days.

This summer is "Summer Fun" time. Every week during the month of July, Stampin' Up! will offer one discounted product as a "Deal of the Week." There are no limits and no minimum purchase required to get the discount. This week, July 1 - 6, is the Scalloped Edge Punch for $ 10.99. I love this punch! Don't miss out on getting it at the sale price. The deadline for this offering -- it's Monday, July 6th at 9:50 AM (mountain time). Since I work full time, I will not be placing an order on Monday morning so please be sure if you want to take advantage of this special that you let me know before Sunday night (July 5th). Or you can check out the sidebar for a link that will take you directly to the special on my demonstrator website if you would like to place your order online.

Been Away

I've been away for a few days having a good time with my hubby. Wish I'd thought to use the sunscreen a little more though. I'll update the retiring accessories list in the morning. Hopefully this week I can play some with some new stuff!


Ok --- the list has been updated now.

Friday, June 12, 2009

Finally tried it....

I've seen these onesie cards on SCS and have been wanting to try one. I embossed the sailboat after I had pieced it together. I wasn't real sure if it would work or not, but it turned out great! It really made the pastel colors pop out.

Lastest card for swap


Well, I finally had time to get the next card in my monthly swap done. I wasn't too happy with it at first, but when it was all said and done, I really like it. I wish that I had found the "Tea Party" paper before the end of the catalog. I hope you like it. I don't think you can see it very well, but there is dazzling diamonds on the pink petals of the flower.

Retiring Accessories

Well - as usual I'm always late getting things posted. The "Last Chance" lists for retiring stamp sets and accessories from the current Spring 2009 catalog were announced on Monday. Unfortunately - I'm just now getting them posted for you.

The link to the retiring stamp sets and the retiring Decor Elements in the on-line SU "store" are in the left hand column. I couldn't figure a way to post the actual list where it could be read easily. You will be asked to choose a demonstrator. If you don't have one already - please choose me (Pam Gardner). If I can figure out how to do that I will in the next day or so. I am posting the retired accessories and wheels list here so that I can update it for you each day. The stamp sets and the Decor Elements are available until June 30, but the retiring accessories and wheels are only available while supplies last.

So look over all of these lists and let me know as soon as possible what you can't live without. Remember - once they have retired, they are gone for good.

Last Chance List - Accessories
This list will be updated each business day by 4:00 PM (MDT) with availability information. Keep in mind that last-chance accessories are available while supplies last. For this reason, the accessories list is offered for informational purposes only rather than as a promotional tool.

Flower Card


I like this card so much that I have done it for several things - a swap, my secret sisters and even my Mother-in-law for her birthday. She liked it too.

I got the idea for the card from the tutorial on SCS for a Flower Pot Card. That one the flowers pull out a card from the inside. It's really cute, but I changed it to just be the front of a regular card.

I'm sorry for the poor quality of the picture. I used the Big Shot Daisy die, the lace scallop punch, the paper crimper, rose gingham ribbon, and pink & purple rhinestone brads (don't remember is they are Fire or Ice sets). The papers are Pretty in Pink, Pink Passion, YoYo Yellow, Barely Banana, Kiwi Kiss and Pacific Point Designer Series print.

Enjoy!

New Card


This is a new card that I did this week for a swap and to send to my secret sister. I really like the way it turned out. I used the shaving cream technique on the butterfly, which is an exclusive Stampin Up Sissix die.

Sometimes I get a little frustrated with the shaving cream technique because I want all of the cardstock pieces to look the same after I'm done, but just like all butterflies don't look alike neither do all pieces of shaving cream cardstock. I did about 20 pieces for this project and none of them were even close to being alike. I did figure out this time though that if I don't have all the color on the second piece that I wanted - well, I just fixed a new mound of shaving cream with just the colors I want to add and dip it again. That really worked good and I was pleased with the results.

Hope you enjoy this card. I will probably be using this for a class sometime soon (no I don't have it scheduled yet).

One Week to go!!!!

Just want to remind you that there is only one week left for Sale-A-Bration 2009. That's right, March 31st is the last day to get these special stamp sets, designer series papers and ribbon. After that they will be gone forever. Just remember, for every $ 50.00 that you spend in product (before shipping & handling) will earn you one of these special items of your choice. Call me quick so that you don't miss out. You can also click on the picture below of the Sale-A-Bration catalog and go directly to my demonstrator website. Once there click on "Shop Now" and place your order at your convenience. Did I mention that you will receive a free Spring/Summer catalog when you order on-line? Hope to hear from you soon.

Another card for my Big Sis!


I sent this one to my SCS Big Sis in February. Believe it or not - it's made from an envelope! That's right a regular envelope that you send your greeting cards in. Just cut off 1 1/4" from one end, stamp your main image(s) on the big end of the envelope, run it through the crimper (note: your images might be a little distorted now, but that's ok!) - don't crimp the small piece you cut off, finish it out with ribbons and other embelishments as desired. The part that you cut off makes the top of the card. You just slide it over the top of the crimped part.


You can make a pull out card with card stock starting with a base of 4" X 4 1/4 (I'll have to double check this size - will edit later). I didn't do much embellishing on my inside card as I didn't want it to poke out too much. I hope you enjoy this card. It's fun to make and really easy!

How do you like this card. I sent this one to my SCS Big Sis in January. I love the new Raspberry Tart Designer paper.

Secret Sister #1 card


Look what my SCS Big Sis sent me in February! I just love the look of dry embossing and this one has two different designs on the front of the card. I'm still trying to figure out how she did this!! Enjoy!

Monthly Card swap - February


I'm in a monthly card swap and this is the card that I made for February. I really had a mental block (not that unusual) when I was designing this card. In fact I was even changing it up as I was making the final product just before they went in the mail. I actually like what the final product was. It may seem pretty plain and not special until you open it up. Hope you like it.

Breaking News!!!

Well, I just got home from a 4 day trip to Arizona and was greeted with breaking news from Stampin' Up!

First up is that beginning in July 2009 - SU will return to an annual catalog instead of the current bi-annual catalog system. They made this decision based on the current economic times and feedback from the demonstrators. There will be 3 mini's per year - each lasting 4 months. There will be additional hostess sets in the minis each time so that you can have additional choices when you hostess a workshop during that time period. The Decor Elements will be a separate catalog and will be published twice a year. The mini's will be used to introduce new products throughout the year.

Also, based on demo and customer feedback, they will be discontinuing double mounted sets in the future (with a couple of exceptions). Those sets that are currently double mounted will remain that way until they retire. Also the larger alpha sets and those sets in the kits will continue to be double mounted. They had originally double mounted them in an effort to reduce costs for these larger sets, but felt this was now the right thing to do. They are continuing to analyse what can be done to help with the price of the larger sets. I'll keep you posted.

There has also been an announcement that sometime later in the year, we will be offering some sort of Digital scrapbooking software. This was announced at the Leadership conference and I don't have any details yet about it. I'll keep you posted!

Well that's it for breaking news! Check out the next post for Sale-A-Bration and March special information.

Happy Scrappin!

Scrapbook Class

Well, we had our scrapbook class today and it was a lot of fun. Here's the pages that we made.



This is the one that I made as the sample


This is a close up of page 2 (see previous post for page 1)




Kerri did this one as a year long page for Isabelle from birth to 1 year old.



DJ did this one.


Didn't everyone do a great job? For once they kind of sort of followed my example. :)

Finally


Finally a sneak peek at a page for the scrapbook class on January 31!! It's midnight and I'm headed to bed otherwise I'd finish out the second page. That's for tomorrow This page uses some of the new Raspberry Tart Designer Series paper, as well as the Kiwi Kiss Designer Series prints. This stamp set is new too. It's called Petal Pizzazz. For class, you'll be able to choose your own papers and colors from what I have available. As always, you are free to interpret the sketch however you want. You can bet your last dollar that this is nowhere near the original sketch that I was using.

Well, good night. I'll post more for the class later.

New Catalog!!!!

Well I have it in my hot little hands and it's GREAT!!! I'm so excited to show you all the new things that are there this Spring. New stamps, new papers, a new circle cutter, new decor elements, new Sissix dies and more!!! WOOHOO!! I'll be setting up a time that you can come check it out for yourself.

I apologize for not getting the information up about the scrapbook class that I'll be holding on the 29th. I had way to much scheduled for last weekend and not enough weekend to do it all. Well.....I have an extra day this weekend and that is top on my priority list. I will have a picture up on the blog of what we'll be doing and the information to you by Monday evening.

I hope that everyone has a WONDERFUL weekend.

New stuff..............

Oh wow!!! I've started seeing pics of the new catalog and I'm getting excited!!!

Some of the new stuff coming on January 19th is:

new Stamp Sets - lots of cute ones
new Designer Series papers - really pretty
new Simply Scrapping Kits - yep, like them too
new punches
new circle cutter
new Sissix dies
new Decor Element designs
and LOTS more !!

Well, needless to say, I can't wait to get my hands on the new catalog and see them for myself! I'm planning to have a New Catalog Open House sometime soon - maybe in February. I'll keep you updated on that.

Check back later this weekend - I'm going to try to have information on the Scrapbook class that will be on January 29th, posted by Sunday night.

Don't forget about the retiring stamp sets and accessories. I'm keeping the accessories updated with things that have already sold out. Check out the inventory blowout list too!

Thanks for stopping by!

These are select items from the Fall/Winter 2008 catalog, retired items from the Spring/Summer 2008 catalog and select items that will be in the upcoming 2009 Spring/Summer catalog. These items will be available while supplies last or until January 18th - whichever comes first. Check out the flier below. Click on the picture to see it full screen.

Retiring Accessories

Well - it's time for the new catalog to come out. January 19th is the first day for the Spring/Summer one. In preparation for it, SU announced the retiring accessories list today. These items are only available while supplies last or until January 18th. Run, don't walk, to find your Fall/Winter catalog and see what you need to order before it's gone forever. Here are the items that are on the retiring list. Items in red are no longer available. I will update the list each evening with the items that have gone away during the day. Retiring wheels have been announced since I sent out the e-mail today, so check out the bottom of this list to see which ones are leaving us.
