Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

I have had a busy couple of weeks and I haven't been able to blog much, but today is a great day to catch up on a few things. Because I've been busy with family, it's been hard to write down my thoughts and share things with you.

One of the things I'm doing is talking to my Granddaughter, Abby, each day via Face Time. What a blessing technology can be! It's nice to just chat and see what she and Josh are doing during the summer months. Abby started the process of calling me, and it has been almost a daily thing...I think she's bored. We have had fun reading and reviewing Nancy Drew books, and sharing craft and art ideas. Today, I was able to show her how I cut my paper packs for Stamp Camp on Saturday and also the cards we made. She wants to make all of them when she visits in August, but of course, she wants to make cookies, slime, art, go to the beach, play with Annie and a sundry other things that we talked about. Yikes, I hope I have enough energy to accomplish all of this!

So, these are the cards we made at Stamp Camp on Saturday:



This beautiful card was done with the Garden Impressions DS paper #146289 $11.00, the Label Me Pretty Stamp Set #143861, and the punch Pretty Label #143715.


I love this summery card done with the Tropical Escape DS paper #146916 and some retired framelit dies that I had on hand, but I can't wait to get the new Tropical Chic Stamp Set and Framelit Bundle #148399 for $44.00 that will work better with my design. 


I love this stamp set! It is modern and would be a great set for celebrations and birthdays; it's called Bubble Over #145868, $17.00, and to match, Bottles and Bubbles Framelits Dies #145663, $28.00.


Isn't this card elegant? It's done with the Darling Label Punch Box set #146855, $45.00. It includes a 6 piece Darling Label stamps, the Darling Label punch, 2 Stampin' Ink Spots, and a clear stamp block! Along with all of this, a beautiful box to keep all of the items in, which is shown in the picture.

Well, next time I blog, I think I'm going to give a card recipe or two!

Take care,
Gloria
