Sooooo excited to be finally on my way to Utah on my Grand Vacation trip thanks to Stampin’ Up! Its going to be a trip of a lifetime!
First of all, my Sister and I will be heading to Disneyland for a few days ..Im so excited about this as growing up as a kid with Disney on a Sunday Night and the Mickey Mouse Club..you can bet that Ill be one big kid on the rides!
From there we head to Salt Lake City where we are seeing the sights, going to a baseball game, mormon tabernacle choir and shopping …oh and GOING TO THE 25TH US CONVENTION! ..Its going to be a blast! The mind boggles with being at a convention with 6000 other people all oohing and aahing over new products lol! (might need my earplugs hehehe). So a few full on days there before we head to Park City to the St Regis resort where SU are taking us on our grand vacation. We will be checking out the SU factory in Kanab, going to Riverton which is the headquarters of Stampin’ Up! and more shopping. Hope to see Shelli there or at St Regis as I have a little gift for her.
So thats me for the next two weeks. Meantime we have started calving on the farm so Hubby will be left behind to do that..I feel so mean for leaving him to fend for himself ..but oh well never mind ..cant say Im not pleased to get out of feeding 340 calves!
So heres the scoop. Check out my facebook page while Im away and you will see what I get up too! link is over to the right >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
In the meantime, I have posts scheduled for the next couple of weeks..my swaps and gifts Ive done and a JAI challenge in there too.
Heres a quick card I whipped up for my Catalogue Launch last weekend. I love this embossing folder! This card was using bits leftover from one of my swaps for grand vacation.

You are going to LOVE coming along and getting your Christmas gift packaging sorted!
Well this challenge at Just Add Ink was right up my alley this week as Ive been making lots of tags and bookmarks for a Christmas Show Im doing in a couple of weeks. It was too hard to choose but I settled on these Christmas tags.
These shipping type tags are easy to make and have plenty of room for writing lots of seasonal wishes on them.
Ive stamped with the snowflake from the Snow Swirled stamp set in Crumb cake and Early Expresso all over the Very Vanilla CS and adhered some Letters to Santa DSP to the bottom half. Added some chantilly Lace Crochet trim (love that stuff) and finished off with a stamped Deightful Decorations Ornament in Early Expresso and punched out with the corresponding ornament punch. The pearl just set it all off and I was pleased how this set turned out..
So hope you can play with us this week ..do check out the gorgeous Design Team work here for more inspiration.
Here is one of the Layouts I showed at convention as part of my presentation. It was to show what you can do with shimmer paint and the tasteful trim die. I had a little chat about composition for all of my LOs and tips on how to convert Scrapbookers into Card makers and vice versa.

Here was my name tag for Regionals yesterday. I made it a couple of weeks ago especially for regionals but I might reuse it and take it to convention!
Do you like my Bird? Shes making a nest up the top with the packing paper from my SU box. Ive used the new Tasteful trim die for that. Theres also a button and mini library clip up there too. She has a bit of bling on the end of one of the trims.
My name is cut out using the Bigz Alphabet die and Ive used the SU box my supplies came in for it. In the box was all my new goodies like the Clearly Yours stamp set, the Nature Walk stamp set, The Botanical Gazette paper and the Bevelled window pane. I used the scallop circle bigz die as my base and used the scallop from the tasteful trim die around it. Cherry Cobbler ink sponged here and there, bling, distressing and wet rolling and ‘Bobs your Uncle’ I was done. It took me a couple of hours of fun to make it.
