A Great Friend

Another card using stamps and paper from the soon to be out Spring mini catalogue. One of the great things about being a demo is that I can preorder items before they come out and have a play with them.
Materials: Great Friend stamp set, circle scallop, and scallop edge
Colour cardstock: vanilla, pacific point (in colour), regal rose, Walk in the park DSP,
Ink: regal rose and not quite navy

What a butterfly means to me

Now that I have submitted my 3rd assignment, I have treated myself to some 'playing and creating' with my SU goodies. Since the much awaited Spring catalogue will be out in 1 August, I thought of making some samples from this delightful catalogue (watch this space). I chose the butterfly because of its versatility to be matched with many things.
Materials: butterfly from Great Friend, Always in Bloom
Colours: Kiwi Kiss and pink pirouette(in colour), choc chip

Thank YouTreat box

I have been planning for my workshop and thought of making this THANK YOU treat box for my host. I hope she likes it. I like it a lot as I used the new scallop oval punch (still from the new spring mini) and crimped the red strip which I inserted on the side using my slit punch.
Materials: stamp sets (Circle circus, Great Friend), markers (not quite navy, ruby red, choc chip). Cardstock: kraft, riding hood red & baja breeze (in colour), dimensionals

Guylian Chocolate Box

I must admit that after all the studying this morning, I decided to reward myself with a creative project. And where else will I get the idea, from WE STAMP! Yes, I really couldnt resist, so I made one up, (and I don't have any excuse, as I have some wonderful DSP in my starter kit.

Matrials: Simply Scrappin' kit (Sweet Nothings), used riding hood red, pink pirouette, kiwi kiss, and whisper white cardstock

Stamp set: Always

Colors: ruby red

My Stampin' Up Oppotunity Begins

I received my starter kit last Friday, but since I have been so busy studying, I haven't even had the time to play (whaaah!). Hopefully, I'll have my reward SOON as I'm targetting Wednesday to be the latest. Anyway, I am excited with all the goods I got, though the lettering stamp is a backorder, so I'll have to wait. In the meantime, I will be posting some creations as soon as assignment is finished, and you will see some cards, gift ideas, scrapbook pages using SU goods from the current catalogue and the spring mini catalogue as well (I nearly ordered everything from the catalogue!).

And the lucky number is. . .

Eversince I lodged my application to be a Stampin Up demonstrator this week, it felt like the longest week ever. And finally, yesterday I got my demonstrator number, YAAY! I felt like winning the Lotto. I'm overwhelmed with the wealth of information and ideas that stampin up website provides for its demonstartors. Now, can't wait till I get my starter kit. Till next post.
