Simply Scrappin' Class and a little RAK!

So yesterday was my "I Wish" Simply Scrappin' Xmas Card Class....here is a glance at the pile of cards that the ladies got to make. I had a full table of ladies and they ended up making 16 4"x4" cards that can be mailed in a regular sized envelope or attached to Christmas gifts. This kit is so versatile as you can make cards, scrapbook pages, home decor items....the list is just endless. The great thing about our Simply Scrappin' Kits is that everything in the Kit is perfectly coordinated: textured cardstock, exclusive designer series paper and 6 sheets of self-adhesive die cut borders and stickers. Just add a little ribbon, brads or buttons and you are on your way to creating fabulous projects!

I want to give a special thanks to my stamp buddy/customer/student, Anita. She made a special Holiday gift for each one of the ladies that attended class and they were so cute. I took a photo of the one that she made for me (along with the adorable little card). She used the Big Shot Top Note Die and the retured SU! stamp set, "Cold Play" for this project and I am always so happy to see my stamping friends use what they buy!

She put some hot cocoa packets and chocolates in our bags and I also received some really cute card candy in mine. Thanks again, Anita, you are such a sweet lady. I enjoyed having your daughter, Katie as a student yesterday as well. You can check out Anita's blog here:

So very busy!

Hello blog readers! Sorry I have been lagging in the posting department. I am taking part in a stamp camp this weekend with 3 other demos and I am using all my spare time to prep my projects for that event. I have so much to share! Last weekend I went on a stampin' retreat up in the mountains with a super awesome group of demos and had such a fabulous time. I will share the cards I made, my shoebox projects as well as the cool gifts that I received from my very talented upline ladies! I haven't had any good outdoor light to snap photos yet, but I will share after stamp camp! Enjoy the rest of the week and to all of you stamp camper customers of mine: see you on Saturday!

I am finally back! (With Stamp Club Projects)

Hello my friends (do I sound like Senator McCain)? I am finally feeling better and hope you are doing well. Try to stay away from the nasty cold virus bug thing that is being passed around.
I finally worked up the energy and took some pics of last Saturday's Stamp Tramp Projects. The 2 Christmas cards were done in no time, but the 4 little tags took a while longer. Must have been all of the punches that were used! These little tags were the idea of a fellow demonstrator (except for the star tag, that was my design). They are a great way to use your punches and scraps and if you are making them on your own, they take no time at all. My fave is the little penguin. We used too many punches to list, but if you would like instructions, just email me. If you are a customer of mine and don't have all of the necessary punches, but would like to make the tags, just let me know. I am thinking of have a class to make them for just $5.00. No set date or anything, just whenever we can get together!



We used the "Winter Post" Stamp Set,"Ski Slope DSP" and the new small "Felt Flurries" Snowflakes (all available in the Holiday Mini Catalog) to make the card above. We also used the Designer Label and Large Circle Punches as well.
To make the card below, we used "Felt Flurries" again, as well as "Season of Friendship" Stamp Set, Curly Label Punch and Stamp Set, Baja Breeze CS and Ribbon, Chunky Glitter, Dazzling Diamonds, Not Quite Navy CS and Urban Garden DSP. I think it makes a gorgeous winter wonderland card, don't you? The "Season of Friendship" Stamp set is so versatile, you can use it for so many seasons and holidays. If you would like to know how to get these products or make these projects just email me at: lexyjulz1@aol.com. I would be happy to share how!
The Stamp Tramps were very happy with their projects and we even had a few guests attend! Thanks to Kindra and a very special guest, Patrice, a visitor from Canada! Yes, she came all the way to attend a Stamp Club meeting. Not really, she is Tia's mom and I have to say she is quite the talented little stamper for a beginner!


That's all for now. I have to get my projects ready and pack for our Stamper's Retreat this weekend! A bunch of us are heading up to a cabin in Arnold for a weekend of nothin' but stampin' and hangin' out with the girls. I will post more on that when I get back on Sunday! Enjoy the rest of your week!

Still MIA

Sorry, I am still MIA. I came down with a horrible cold virus on Saturday and I think it has turned into a sinus infection. Yuck! I squeezed Stamp Club in just time but I haven't had the energy to snap photos or make anything, so please be patient with me. I am headed back to the couch now, for more movie watching, snoozing and nose-blowing.

MIA>>>>again!

Aaargh! I just cannot seem to get it together this past week! I have been a very bad blogger, but I promise I will post tomorrow's stamp club projects after our meeting. I have designed 2 very cute Christmas cards and we will be making some holiday gift tags as well! Gotta go, my house looks like a tornado hit and I have to clean it for club tomorrow. Nighty-Night!
