Founder's Circle 2012

Highlighted Saran Wrap Technique Video


HAPPY SATURDAY!!!  It's a gorgeous day here in Wisconsin so I'm getting my video loaded early so I can spend my day outside!!!

Here's a super easy technique that produces a super cool wow!!!  I'm calling it Highlighted Saran Wrap...I'm using saran wrap to create a background and then going back with a little bolder color to highlight my stamped images.  This card is a lot more spectacular in real life - REALLY - the photos just don't do it.

This card uses the new BLOOM WITH HOPE stamp set - an exclusive hostess set in the new catalog!!!  You can have the chance to get this stamp set FREE when you place your order by tomorrow night (Sunday, June 29th) in my $1000 WORKSHOP GIVEAWAY - see the details below by the hilarious PARTY image! 


Sit back and watch how fun and easy it is....

I didn't abandon you!!!


Here's one of the pages that was available to make at the CARD:SCRAP BUFFET last month.  I just love the Everything Eleanor stamp set - it has a very "vintage" feel to it!


I chose a 5" x 7" photo of Hailey and her friends on prom night - the colors in my photo were perfect for this page.


Stamps:  Everything Eleanor  Ink:  Real Red Classic & Craft  Accessories:  Scallop Punch; Clear Embossing Powder; Real Red Satin Ribbon; Vintage Brads; Dimensionals

I'm so sorry that it's been so long since I've shared with you!!!  I was crazy trying to get ready for my Founder's Circle trip and on top of that - I caught a cold the Saturday before I was leaving on Wednesday. Being sick is never good - especially when you have soooo much to do before you can leave.  I was feeling a little better the day before I things were looking up.  My cold turned into a sinus infection that continued to drain me while in Utah...until I finally went to a walk in clinic on Saturday of my trip...sheesh!  I got a prescription for very strong antibiotics...but they didn't make me feel any better until TODAY!!!!  So I'm back in the "land of the living" and ready to share some photos from my fabulous trip!

Here's what we were greeted with when we arrived at the hotel in St. George, Utah!



Stampin' Up! is known for spoiling us....REALLY SPOILING US!  Here's the gathering place where we can come and relax and laugh with our friends...and eat tons of candy and ice cream!!!  The candy bowls are overflowing all the time and this year, with the nautical theme, there was a cooler full of ice cream all the time!!!!  This worked out really good for me...I went from being chilled to very hot the entire time.  Nothing a drumstick can't take care of!  I ate a lot of them.


This was our welcome dinner when we arrived on was a meal you would get at a fish shack on the East Coast - complete with crab legs, shrimp, clams, potatoes and corn on the cob - DELICIOUS!!!


I'll share more photos in the next few days!
