Swirls & Curls

More Summer Mini projects. I guess summer really is over if the summer mini is retiring. I am still not ready for Fall! This card is made with mostly the flirtatious suite in the catalog, but the greeting is from the Swirls & Curls hostess stamp set. I love the little bird :)

Did you notice that I embossed the card after I added the Lace Ribbon Border?

My swap that wasn't

I am so lucky to belong to an awesome group of demonstrators. We get together often and this is a card swap I made. I was excited to get tons of cute cards from my friends, but unfortunately a horrible migrane hit me and I didn't finish them. So alas this is my swap that wasn't :)

Teacher Gift

Don't you love this owl? This was the teacher gift we gave at the end of school this year. I forgot to take a picture of the outside, but here is the inside of the clear mount case we decorated. I wanted this to be something useful, hopefully she liked it!

I actually wrote her a thank you note on the top page of this notepad, and my son made a card for her and wrote her a note. I told him that it might be a good idea to thank her for specific things and he said "I already took care of it mom" and showed me that he wrote " thanks for all the fun stuff we did" :) I love 7 year olds!

Cheerful Treat

I have been having lots of fun playing with the Cheerful Treat DSP and the new colors! I almost didn't even use any stamps... just the greeting :) The colors on this card are Lucky Limeade, Concord Crush, and Melon Mambo.

Check out the Designer Printed Brad - they are new this year in the in-colors. I definitely love the polka dot theme on this card!

Strength & Hope Pages

Last Chance for Strength & Hope! There is only a few more days to order this stamp set, and for each set sold, Stampin' Up! donates $2 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation!!! I LOVE this cause and was more than happy to support it.

These are the pages we made back in May for stamp club.

School time

School is starting on Monday, which brings lots of change for us. This year I will have 2 kids going to school, (2nd grade and Kindergarten). They will be going to a brand spanking new school, and will be on a traditional schedule for the first time! I am definitely NOT ready for this yet! I LOVE LOVE LOVE summer. Definitely the best time of year in my mind. I still can't believe it is ending... I made this card to help me get excited for school time. I used the image from the Fruit & Flowers stamp set. The paper is from the Cheerful Treat DSP - it is the one that ONLY hostesses can get. I actually love it, especially this image.

School here we come!

Thank you Books

We recently had a few big changes in Primary and we had to thank the music leader and pianist for all they did! So I made them a book for all the kids to sign, I wish I would have thought to sign it! Each class got their own full page to sign and draw pictures. I think they turned out so cute!

This paper is an actual sheet of music! (yes I am not afraid to cut up music). My mom teaches piano lessons and she gives me all the sheet music that she doesn't like! Awesome huh?! oh and I just realized that the thank you stamp is retired... I love it though.

My color combo was Basic Black, Very Vanilla, and the new Pool Party.

I'm on Facebook - come check it out!

Hi everyone, I now have a page on facebook! Here is the link: Stamp with Kasia Make sure you click the "Like" button! I will update the page each time I post on this blog, and share class info there as well!

Button Buddies class

Tomorrow I am hosting a class with this fun button buddies stamp set and I thought I should share the cards we are making with you!

This stamp set is so fun. Each image coordinates with the buttons we sell. The images look cute without a button, the button just makes it pop!

I am loving the scallop polka dot ribbon! they put 2 of my favorite things together!

ok so I have to admit... I LOVE rainbows! so this card makes me happy. I stole the idea to have the snail trail the kindness stamp. I love the new site for demonstrators! they have tons of fun ideas.

Ok so my friend Melanie totally opened my eyes. I probably would have never thought of this... a sick green pig! love it. (thanks Melanie for letting me case this card!)

Anniversary party cards

You all can't wait to see the projects we made at the party right? Well here they are! Everyone who came to my house made these cards for free to celebrate my 7 years with Stampin' Up! Each card used one of the new in colors and every card had a new stamp set!

For this first card we used the Up, Up & Away stamp set and new Pool Party color! This card is a 4x4 card. Did you know that you can get 4 4x4 cards out of one 12x12 sheet? Try it sometime :)

I love those hot air balloons. I have some more balloon cards/pages to show you soon! This next card is made with the new Doily background stamp and the new Calypso Coral ink.

This Last card uses the Pennant Parade stamp set and the Lucky Limeade color. I LOVE that the pennant stamps match the new pennant punch!

Well this event was definitely a success! Keep a look out for my Anniversary party next year! (probably in July - I don't know the exact date I signed up but know it is at the end of July... I should call and find out :) Thanks to everyone who helped me celebrate! Enjoy all your free stuff!

You're Invited!

I have been a Demonstrator for 7 years now, WOW. I still can't believe it was that long ago, it seems like it was yesterday that I was picking out the stamps and ink pads that I got in my starter kit.

So to celebrate, I am throwing myself a party and you are all invited! It will be on Friday the 12th at my home, from 5:00 to 8:00 PM. (plan to stay for an hour or so)

At the yard sale I will have most of my retired stamps, paper, ink, punches, kits, big shot dies, stamped items, retired catalogs and anything else I can find! You will be able to purchase these items with "Kasia's kash" (everyone who attends will get some kash, and you will be able to earn some more kash!) you will be able to purchase with real money too if you like.

Anyone is invited (you will want to bring a friend to earn more kash).

Gift Bags

I am LOVING the new pennant die for the big shot, and the punch too of course. I used the smallest pennant on the die for this bag. and the medium sized pennant for this baby one. Here is a close up of the hair clip I put on the bag... I love this flirtatious fabric! It was pretty simple to decorate these bags, just paper and dimensionals! So Fun. Next time I want to try it with the punch, think of how many pennants we could add!
