Sharing a Card and a Technique Video + Last Chance for Retired Products

I was given a beautiful card at the On Stage event in April. It was from a demonstrator who had watched my video on the Aqua Wash technique. Megan Herst had made her swap cards for the event using the aqua wash technique from my video and wanted to share her card with me. I will post the video below for those of you who may have missed it.

I was so pleasantly surprised by her thoughtfulness and her beautiful card. Here's is Megan's awesome card using the aqua wash technique.

Megan also used the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set and coordinating dies as I did in my video. I love how Megan added a splash of gold embossing to match her gold foil dragonflies.

For those of you who may have missed my video on the aqua wash technique, I will post it below. Scroll down past the product list and click to view.

Thanks again to Megan for thinking of me and presenting me with this fabulous, glimmery card.

Until the next time...

Sneak Peek- Stampin' Up! On Stage Event- Richmond, VA

This past weekend, I traveled to Richmond, VA with my bf, Raelene. We attended one of Stampin' Up's regional events for demonstrators only.

I have to say, we had so much fun- as we always do at these amazing training opportunities that Stampin' Up provides for us.

We received so many gifts! I attended a leaders event on Friday night, called Centre Stage. In addition to a fabulous dinner and guest speaker, we received a couple great gifts. This apron was one of them... If you're local, you'll see me sporting this darling smock very soon. Even though, my bff, Raelene wasn't able to attend, I didn't forget about her... I saved my double chocolate cake just for her!

Raelene made this adorable gift for me. She's got some mad skills and I love everything she creates. Isn't this darling gift box and post it note pad, gorgeous?

Stampin Up Sample Boards and More Peeks at the New Catalog

I know I said that I wrapped up my last post on the Stampin' Up! On Stage, Convention. But, this is all about the stamps, samples and creative ideas that were shared.

I have some cool scrapbook pages to share, that were made with Stampin' Up's Project Life kits and that were displayed on the many display boards at Convention. Plus, an adorable surprise at the end of my post.

I'll start with this cute spread...

IMG_8200

I love this one. Its so cheerful and bright.

IMG_8201

Don't you just love all the new Project Life cards and elements?

IMG_8153

Here's a little peek at some new designers series paper that will be in the Stampin Up Annual Catalog- 2016-2017. Stunning!

IMG_8174

Ok, so this is a teaser from the New Catalog... one of my favorite new sets, Baby Bear. I was able to give this set away, to some lucky demonstrators, as my prize patrol during my presentation. Too bad, I didn't get to keep one!

  IMG_8163

That's all for now, folks. I've got to work on my upcoming "Kim's Card Class" and also my Team Meeting and 2 workshops, coming up this week.... not to mention my son and my dads birthday parties!

Until the next time...

Keep on Stampin' and Come back again soon!
