Kathleen's Vintage Tools

Kathleen made this really cool masculine card for our December Stamp Share swap:

Colors: Basic Black, Basic Gray, Basic White, Balmy Blue, Crumb Cake
Kathleen fussy-cut the tools. She cut a "channel" out of the card stock and curled it so the planer can slide back and forth and it looks like the wood is curling! So cool!

Something Fancy For The Stamp Share For Leaders Swap

For the second day of my awesome stamping weekend, on Sunday Amy and I drove to Medina for the Stamp Share For Leaders annual training event. This is a group of Demonstrators in MN that are Leaders, meaning they have a certain number of downline and sales. This is the group that I do a lot of new catalog swaps with throughout the year. It is the most amazing group! There were many Million Dollar achievers there (they have sold over $1 Million!) and everyone is so willing to share ideas and talk about what has and hasn't worked for their business. I have so many new ideas that I can't wait to try! Shannon was our special guest for this event so we got to see her again! 

We did an in person swap while we were there. It's so fun going around and seeing everyone and the beautiful cards they made! Here's mine:


same layout, different color combinations to go with the Designer Series Papers

Colors: Calypso Coral, Fresh Freesia, gold, Orchid Oasis, Soft Sea Foam, Soft Succulent
Some pictures from the event:

Something Fancy For The Alexandria, MN Shoebox Swap

I just had an awesome stamping weekend! On Saturday I drove to Alexandria with my downline Amy and Sandy for an event that Shannon West, who works at Stampin' Up!' in Utah as a Demonstrator Manager, organized for us. This was for Demonstrators in MN, but not in the twin city metro area since that's where Stampin' Up! usually holds events. There was lots of sharing about projects, classes, and business stuff. 

Shannon had called me and asked if I would present something, so I made a display of ways to cut Designer Series Paper and had samples of each (I'll be sharing them later this month). I was really nervous getting up to talk in front of everyone (there was about 60 people there) but I did it and didn't screw up! 

After lunch we did a shoebox swap. We made our sample and then had all the supplies for 9 cards in a box. We set them up so there was a box at each end of a table and then we went around the room and picked 9 cards to make. It was so much fun stamping and meeting new friends! 

This is the card I made for the shoebox swap. It's CASE'd (Copy And Share Everything) from another demonstrator named Robin.


Colors: Basic White, Evening Evergreen, Soft Succulent
Here are some pictures from the event:


me and Amy - we're wearing our "Sunshine Stampers" shirts!




There were demonstrations of different techniques going on around the room
