Convention Swap Card

I am not at the Stampin' Up! Convention right now, like many other demonstrators. But I did send a swap card there (thanks to Sherrill). I had limited supplies, so this is what I came up with. Here is my swap card recipe:
Stamps: Polka Dot BG, One of a Kind, All Holidays
Paper: White, Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink
Ink: Pretty in Pink, Close to Cocoa
Accessories: Boho Blossoms punch, Dimensionals, Silver brad
I am so excited to see the new idea book/catalog. I have plenty of the old idea book/catalog. If anyone would like a free one for some great inspiration, just let me know and I'll try to get it to you. Happy Stampin!

The pictures are what totally make this page look cute. You'll just have to imagine a pink and green outfit with polka dots. And the journaling will help it all come together as well.

Ginger Blossom Scrapbook Page

I think this page looks so pretty and it was so easy. I matched the page to the outfit my daughter was wearing in the pictures I took. That's usually how I come up with the color schemes for the pages I do. Here's what I used for this page(many of these are retiring soon):
Paper: White, Certainly Celery, Groovy Guava, Ginger Blossom DS Paper
Stamps: Lovely Labels, Big Flowers
Ink: Certainly Celery, Groovy Guava
Accessories: Scallop Punch, circle punch, 3 For You Punch, white ribbon

Summer Scrappin'

This was the first ever scrapbook page I made for a Stampin' Up workshop. I used the Life is a Breeze stamp set. Now I have more sets and more colors to choose from for my scrapbook pages. I'll post the new pages I'm working on soon. Happy Scrapbooking!

Scrapbook Page with Layers

This scrapbook page is Sherrill's design. It's hard to tell in this picture, but there are five separate 6x6 pages on this 12x12 page. This allows for many more pictures on one page as you can add pictures to both sides of the small pages and flip through them. There is so much that can be done with this page. I can't wait to start adding pictures and embellishments.

Happy Fourth of July

This card was created by Sherrill. Isn't it great?! I don't take any credit for it. I just assembled it. Happy Fourth of July!
