 Once I got started, I couldn’t stop until I completed 6 of these cute little memory albums for my special Salt Lake City convention roomies. Inside there are cute little pockets where notes, autographs, convention pictures, and other memorabilia can be kept.  With each little album  I’ve included a bag of Jelly Belly Flops (because the Jelly Belly factory is near our home), I also included a little lollipop flower.  The coils are from Zutter and I used the Bind it All. 

Epic Day This and That DSP and Designer Stickers were used for this project.

I fell in love with these cute snowmen.  I embossed white cardstock with the swiss dot embossing folder, the flowers were punched with the trip punch pack, tiny pearls were blackened with a Sharpie for the mouth and eyes.  There is a roll of Rolos chocolate/caramel candy inside each one.  The hats were created by cutting the fingers off white cotton gloves.  So cute!

At Stampin’ UP! convention I enjoy participating in the Gift Exchange (Sudsol) where everyone brings one gift and receives one gift. For my gift this year I made a Birthday reminder/card holder book bound with the Bind it All. Here is the book. The inside of the front cover holds a 2013 calendar and embossed pocket with postage stamps.  The bottom of each page is a pocket to hold Birthday cards.   I wanted to use Everything Eleanor stamp set for each month,with added embellishments from other current stamps in our 2013-2014 catalog.  I am very pleased with the finished book.

With Olive Barne’s permission I case’d her beautiful card for Stampin’ UP convention this year. I’m participating in Sudsol’s 45 card fronts swap and here are 55 of them completed, ready for their trip to Salt Lake City.

A big thank you to Sandra Sinosky for hosting Stamp Camp for June, 2013.  She served the most delicious Chinese Chicken Salad along with strawberry/blueberry fruit salad to go along with the red/white/blue theme for the evening.  What a wonderful meal for the hot summer weather. Perfect evening.  Here are the 3 projects everyone loved and completed. 

This card started out as my Birthday card for Sandra,but I loved it so much the group made it.  The new Beautifully Baroque embossing folder could easily substitute for the newly retired one we used to achieve the same effect. 

Oh, my goodness.  I love everything about our new Gingham Garden DSP which was used for the background of this card.  Clean lines, simple styling which was copied from a card I recently received from Anne Marie Hile.  Anne always does such beautiful work. 

Cute little candy 3D project which uses 2 mini Hershey bars covered with DSP, add a covered clothes pin embellished with a matching butterfly.  Quick, easy, delicious treat.

A big thank you to my friend Phyllis Strickland for providing the template to SUDSOL to make this new color chart.  I made 9 to give to the ladies last night and they loved having the ink/cardstock samples to refer to while they completed their orders.  Note:  It took me 4 hours to stamp, punch and color 9 of these for the ladies.  A fun project, but they took alot more time than I thought they would to make.

Last, but not least I made a dozen of the paper clip bows as shown on page 152 for the ladies to use as bookmarks in their new catalogs. The bows are even cuter in person than they appear in the catalog. 

Thank you for visiting my blog and a big thank you to all the ladies last night for attending the event.
