Convention Board Samples-Daydream Medallions

I really like the idea of this set, but I had trouble making it the focal point of a project.  To me this is a great set for "behind" and image, or for a background.  
 Daydream Medallions and Fabulous Florets Set
 Daydream Medallions and Loving Thoughts
Daydream medallions and Curly Cute

Convention Board Samples-Make A Cake

Such a fun bright and cheery set!  It takes me a bit out of my element because I tend to not go for my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line thins up...but it really bugs me when things aren't lined up!  
 So here you are two easy cards!  Paired with the Patio Party DSP and the Made For You set.

Convention Board Samples- Daydream Medallions

Sometimes less is more, and in the case of this box, I felt that was the case.  I stamped the second smallest medallion all over the base of the box in crumb cake then added the next size up on the top.  Added a few punches and bakers twine and that's it!  
Here is the scrapbook page I did of Kamili...  sorry the picture is a bit blurry.

Convention Board Samples-You're Amazing

This set is very versatile if you ask me.  I love the framed words and on these two samples that's what I used.  I paired the set You're Amazing with the butterfly punch and Comfort Cafe' DSP
 The Elephants just screamed Circus Peanuts to me!  Although I admit they are probably in my top ten worst tasting candies, I grew up with them and just love the idea of them!

Artisan Design Team!

So at convention I was told to stop by the awards booth.  I had been informed that I had won an award for recruit promotions and for the Hilton head trip I would receive a pin as well.  I had no idea what I was in store for!  I went up to the booth and gave them my demonstrator #.  They put it in and started gathering many things...
They handed my my pins for the promotion achievement, Hilton Head trip, a ribbon that says "getaway" for the trip, Two envelopes and a big pink flower that said "artisan" in the center...which I figure was what they gave all the finalist since we were informed we would find out at awards night if we won or not.  But to my surprise I opened the first envelope to this beautiful card that was inviting me to the Artisan Design Team dinner.  It was very exciting news!!!  

Here is the crew of design team members.  We will be receiving a box in the mail from stampin' Up! each month and required to make projects with them,  You will see all of my projects on my blog each month so be sure to stop in and check them out!  

This is Amy Swartz and I at the dinner, and a picture of my place setting.

 Me in front of my projects and just my projects!

and on stage at awards night:)

Convention Swaps

I am not much of a swapper...but you would never know that by the amount I am making this year for convention.  I had signed up for an organized swap a little while back, and then a few more fell into place, so I ended up being a part of 3 organized swaps, a roommate gift swap, and a shoe box swap...o'well that is what convention is for, right:)  
 Here is my swap with storybook friends.  This is one of my favorite combos of color.  and I love this little kitten!  I know it doesn't look that fancy, but it has a lot of steps!  Thanks for stopping in!

Life Shared

I got this single stamp, Life Shared because I LOVE the Story Time DSP that coordinates with it!  So I Decided to pull it out the other day and watercolor the image.  But I never put it on a card, so I was sitting at my work desk and saw it sitting there and decided to use different pieces that were cut and make it a card finally.  Nothing fancy, pretty basic, but here it is!
See you tomorrow!
