Over the Top Cards


I'm BACK!!!!!  OMGosh - we had such a fabulous time....just incredible!!!!!  I can't wait to share all the beautiful photos of the insane projects and ideas!!!!

This is Dawn Olchefske, Gloria Helmbrecht and me - waiting to go to the Managers Reception at the Stampin' Up! Leadership Conference in Phoenix!


Here are some table decorations at Barbara Jackson's "Over the Top Swap" that I participated in on Wednesday night.  Barbara made this event so spectacular - it was incredible!


She also provided 8 projects for everyone to make - all 40 of us!


Everyone received a bag to put their 40 - YES 40 - over the top swaps in.


And another bag with everyone's initials on it, loaded with our make-n-take projects.  All the projects used NEW Occasions Mini Catalog stamps and embellishments.


Here's a few of the projects we were able to make.  These are the Love Bots Boy & Girl die-cut valentine boxes.  They're on page 17 of the Occasions Mini Catalog - how adorable are they???


And another fabulous project - this is one of the On Board Heart Book panels (featured on page 34), made of chipboard.  We covered it with Sending Love Specialty Designer Paper (featured on page 13) and embellished with the Pretty in Pink
Epoxy Brads (page 13) and punched hearts.  I'm in love with the Satin Ribbon on page 27 too.  This mini is just incredible and it was so much fun to get to play with all these NEW products!


Here's a card that features the NEW Something Sweet stamp set (page 20).


And how about this beauty???  We have some new Embosslits - I love the raised image and the fact that it cuts out the heart at the same time.  The Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslit is on page 15.  What a beautiful addition to any card!


Barbara pays attention to the inside of her cards too - I LOVE that!


This is one of the favorite sets in the mini -Vintage Vogue (page 26) and I LOVE the matching jumbo wheel - Very Vintage.


This Chocolate Bunny (page 43) makes me smile - it's just too stinkin' cute!  And the Sweet Pea Stitched Felt (page 32) and Chocolate Chip Epoxy Brads (page 13) are the perfect embellishment for this card!  The polka dots in the background are actually stamped in Pretty in Pink ink - the photo didn't show up very good....with the Solids Stripes a la carte stamps on page 42 of the mini.


Here's the inside - it features the NEW Scallop Trim Corner punch (page 11) and Well Scripted stamp set (page 19). There's a matching Scallop Trim Border punch in the Sale-A-Bration brochure that you can get FREE with a $50 order!

  That's enough for now....I'll be sharing a ton of photos with you over the next several days!

Thanks for stopping by....
