I just love this owl. I am trying to convince my 2 year old that it is just a decoration and not candy but I thought I better get a picture before he decides to check out for himself. This Owl was a gift from my upline Jill Olson. She made one for everyone who went to her downline meeting. I am not a big owl fan but I fell in love with this one.
We made some cards using the Scallop Envelope Bigz Die. They each have a little card tucked inside that we stamped with the Say it with Scallops Stamp set, thank you UPS!!
One of my favorite cards we made in St George is this last one, we used the Top Note Bigz Die (the same one on the owl's head). The Kindred Spirits stamp set is so fun to use.

We left the meeting a little early so I caught the earlier flight home. I had the perfect moment to take a picture but I didn't know anyone around me and I was creating a little too much attention already but this is what I did. The St George Airport is Tiny and I mean Tiny they have free parking and security is only open a part of the day. They have only 2 small rooms to wait in. one for arrivals and one for departures. I was in the arrivals section because security was closed. They only have 5 benches to sit on and in the middle of them they have the only table, I had a bunch of cards I didn't put together so I pulled the table over to my bench and layed out my supplies to put the cards together. It was fun to watch everyone stare at me like I am some crazy stamper!!

Stampin' Up! often spoils us demonstrators and this next picture is proof of one of those occasions. They sent every demonstrator a free decor elements flower and I put this on another magnet board. I changed the ribbon on the top to chocolate to match the flower.
Yes the walls in my stamp room are grey it was grey when we bought the house a few months ago and I am seriously putting off painting. I am not ready for that big of a project yet and I can't decide which Stampin' Up! color to paint it yet do you have any ideas?

I also made a pirate card that would be really cute for a pirate party invitation (Kristi are you reading this???) After I colored it using my trusty Aqua painters I added crystal effects to the sword and eye patch for a little shine.

I was really proud of myself that I figured out how to make the ridinghood red circles all by myself. I used the scallop edge punch, after I punched one side I just turned the paper around and punched the other side.
I love this punch and so does my two year old. My kids are really really really good at not getting into my supplies especially since I turned my family room into my stamping room. The one thing I don't mind if they play with is my punches. My 5 year old uses them by punching paper, my 2 year old goes straight to the scallop edge punch and flies it around the room like an airplane :)

I also entered this page at the state fair. I took this picture myself so sorry for all the glare. I was pleased to win second place for this page. In the comments they mentioned that they wish I used some Printed paper, we stamped on the red paper with the red ink but it was really hard to see. My favorite part of the page is the chunky glitter. We used both tombow and sticky strip to adhere it to the page. The chipboard stars and rub-ons were fun too.

My 4 year old told me today that I should make the muffin card in red. I guess he doesn't know what cupcakes are :)

The tin I used is the one that the flowers come in. As you can see it is big enough to hold all five note cards even with the flowers as big as they are.
The orange paper I used is from the Summer Picnic DSP, I love that paper. I stamped the Rose Red paper with the flower from the Eastern Blooms stamp set. I thought it went nicely with the other flowers.
I had a lot of fun making this scrapbook page for my stamp club. I used a stamp set that we were all given at convention, thank you SU! They also gave us the rub-ons that match, (see the rub-on under the word family?) My page looks a little different than the one my girls made, I gave my page to one of my girls who couldn't make it and made one for me later. I had more horizontal pictures so I just rotated almost everything on the right page. The stamp set I used was Eastern Blooms, this is 15% off this month! Contact me if you would like to order it. I used the new In Colors Tangerine Tango and Pacific Point.
I entered a few of my scrapbook pages in the Utah State Fair this month and I was awarded second place for this entry, (I didn't add enough journaling for first place). I was thrilled, there were so many entries.
