Madyson Patricia

Did you think I fell off the face of the earth? Well, I have been sooooo busy stamping lately I can't even tell you. But the good news is, I have gotten a lot stampes. Most of which I can't show you until after convention but, I have been preparing for some classes and doing these baby shower invitations for my cousin who is expecting in September or October. I made 40 of the above card with stamped envies for Jessica (Hiya Jess)

This picture does not do this card justice, but tell me what you think

Have a blessed Stampin' Up! Day

It's A Party

"It's a Party" Kit

Let's have a party! Why purchase party supplies over and over again when you can recreate these great party decorations with your stamping inventory?

This class is designed to demonstrate a few ways you can create complementing cards and 3-D projects for many occasions using coordinating products from Stampin’ Up! You will be able to use these instructions to recreate versatile projects in many themes and color palettes. Birthday parties, summer BBQ’s, wedding and baby showers and celebrations of many kinds are just waiting for your creative touch.

Why wait for a party? Create the star box, matching card and a few of the treats and give as a gift to teachers, co-workers or friends. What a thoughtful (and easy) gift. Make several to have on hand.

One of the great things about the Stampin’ Up! is the great way they plan coordinating products with broad appeal. The Star punches coordinate nicely with everything from baby to western to all occasion stamps…talk about versatile!

The Star Punches are a great tool for card-makers and scrapbookers alike. The stars make great layers and they work well for kids (boys and girls), sports, birthdays, graduations, showers and many more occasions!
