Stampin Up Mega Meeting - This weekend!

About 4 times a year, my Upline Laura, holds the most fantastic Mega Meetings. These meetings are attended mostly Stampin Up Demonstrators, but if you are one of the lucky guests to attend - get ready for something great!
We make some great cards to take home, see some "Wow" presentations for ideas or techniques and have a great opportunity to swap cards with other Demos. Here are my cards ready for the swap

They are reasonably simple cards, but when you make 60 - you have to set limits! I hope the other Demos like them! I will be sure to bring Mega news to you soon.

Stampin Up Spinner Class

Hi all,

In case you had wanted to come, but just got busy, I wanted to share the cards that I prepared for the class today. I was very enthusiastic about the new spinner stamps and brads that Stampin Up put in the Occaisions catalogue. So, as I mentioned in my last newsletter, the focus on this class was the spinners. Here are all three together.

This first one, is what I call a peek-a-boo. I made it with a window, but it really should be left open so that you can spin the dial while the card is open or closed. It has a simple monochromatic colour scheme, and I used the punchie stamp kit from the Sale-a-bration catalogue to get the flowers, heart and bird stamped images. The theme of this spinner dial inside is about characteristics - kindness, thoughtful etc.

This next card is an easel card. The popularity of this style of card is going crazy!

The dial on the spinner stamp is about birthdays, but I themed this card in a more masculine gendre. There is space to write a greeting, you just can't see it as it is the uppper part of the inside of the card

This last card is a "Happy Everything" card. The dial turns revealing happy birthday, Happy Anniversary, Welcome baby - you get the idea.

I decorated the bottom with Balloons which are great for any occaisions. Another difference is that instead of using the arrow and brad, I cut another circle, layered it so that you can turn to open it to the greeting that you want.

Next class - Cards using the Vintage line offered in our catalogue. Please email me to sign up!
