Let's Scrap! Gathering

Last Saturday morning I had my first gathering that was specifically geared toward scrap booking and it was GREAT! We had a small group but it was so much fun!  Here are the two projects that we created:


I chose the Designer Series Paper from Sale-a-bration 2012 because it went really well with my photos, it is just so beautiful AND it is on the Clearance Rack right now for just $2.19!!  I knew the girls would like it and they did....sold 3 packs of it!



Here are what the patterns look like and you get 12 double sided sheets for just $2.19!
Get it while it's still there! I have provided the link below!



I asked my scrappers to bring what they were working on and Janice shared her scrapbook with us...and it really motivated me to get busy on mine! She completed her 2012 book using pages like these:


These are our Divided Page Protectors and they make preserving your memories sooooo easy! I ordered mine and am so happy I did, because when I saw Janice's book, I knew I could get a lot done in a short amount of time.  Here is more on info:

Beautiful Butterfly!


Here is the card that I promised to share earlier this week.  I just LOVE the vellum butterfly heat embossed in silver.  These images are from Papillion Potpourri.  If you like butterflies as much as I do, you will love this set because it coordinates with our 2 butterfly punches!  The color combo for this card is Pink Pirouette, Brushed Silver and Very Vanilla.  Don't you just love the Pink Pirouette/Rose Red ribbon? It is so lunch and ties beautifully.  The DSP is from Fan Fair and the die cute window was made using the Apothecary Accents Framelits.

Spring Fling Projects/Gifts


Here are my projects from our Spring Fling class a couple of weeks ago.  All of them are my original designs except for the card directly below, which was a CASE from Chiaki Haverstick of Stampingpro.com.  I loved her layout but I changed the DSP to a current product.



These drink mix packets were my gift to our stampers.  I used the Petite Pocket and Fun Flower Dies for the Big Shot to create these.  They were inspired by some tags that I created a few weeks ago and that I will share in a later post.


This is a close up of the magnetic clothespin that I designed and our stampers loved!  I have made many clothespin magnets in the past few years for the shops thatI sell in and they have always been a hot item so I thought it was about time to show my stampers how to make one :)

Until next time ~

Best of.....Butterflies!


Here is our latest 25th Anniversary Stamp Set!  I love butterflies, as you all know!

Here are some great samples of what you can do with this set, courtesy of the Stampin' Up! blog:


LOVE the Gold Heat Embossing on the butterfly to the right! Later this week, I will share my own card with the same technique, using Silver!




Until next time ~

Pretty Paper Creations Class pics!


A few weeks ago I had my Pretty Paper Creations Class which featured 4 cards made with elements of the Artisan Embellishments Kit.  The top and bottom cards were cased from Pinterest and the 2 middle cards were my original designs.  



The kit makes it sooooo easy to come up with pretty, vintage cards! I love the resin flowers that are included in the kit and I am crossing my fingers that we see more of those in the next Annual Catalog!


Until next time ~

Another fun job!

Hello readers!
I just wanted to share some exciting news with you! I have another fun job!
In February I took the leap and signed up as a consultant with Thirty-one! I felt that this was a natural progression for my home based business line as I have purchases many Thirty-one products over the years to use for my Stampin' Up! and Origami Owl businesses as well as my personal life!  Crafty people love to be organized (or at least think we are...LOL) and look cute while doing it, so I thought this would be a nice service to offer to my crafty friends and family members!

Thirty-one offers so many beautiful, affordable and high quality products and the company is directed by the same philosophy as Stampin' Up! and Origami Owl which is why it was an easy choice for me.  Creativity, positivity, empowerment and encouragement for women to share their passion and to make a living while doing so.  And to offer really cute items!


I have started a private VIP Facebook group for anyone interested in the products, promotions, giveaways and cool organization and fashion ideas.  If you are on FB, you can find it HERE.  If you would like a catalog, just email me at bagsbyjules@aol.com.

Join me on my journey!

Until next time ~
♥Julie
