I LOVE this wheel from the Occasions Mini.  It's simply gorgeous and I wanted to share a sample that was swapped at our last group meeting.  This was a card done by one of my very talented downline, Cheryl Lentz.  Our meeting was held in Waukesha on Monday night and we get together to swap cards, (say I make 6 of one design and then trade them with others so that I go home with 6 different cards), stamp some make and takes, and have a business share.

I wanted to share another sample.  This is one of the Make and Takes that I provided for the group.  If you've considered becoming a demonstrator but were worried about having enough ideas to work with, let me assure you that I can help you!  We have MANY opportunities in our group for idea shares.  In fact, we have a ShoeBox swap coming up on Jan 30th and I would invite you to check out our group.  I'd love to talk with you or send you additional information about becoming a demonstrator.

  • No, I did not stitch the felt flowers.  They come like that!  Love the assortment.  52 pieces total, 8 three petal flowers, 20 French-knot circles, 16 leaves, 8 six petal flowers, all for only $7.95.
  • They coordinate nicely with the Sweet Pea DSP paper.  Did you notice it said 48 sheets.  Fo those of us with paper issues, this is just fueling the flames!!!
  • I adhered the felt flowers with Glue Dots – the superglue of the scrapbooking world.

Phyllis Nufer, another very talented stamper in my group shared her stationary portfolio that she stamped as part of her Vernon Park and Rec Gifts class.  (I'll save those photos for another day)
