FIFTH AVENUE FLORAL BOX CLASS!

On Tuesday, April 28, 2009 from 10:00 a.m. to Noon and from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. I will be having a Fifth Avenue Floral Box Class. Below are samples of the box and all four cards that fit into the box. There are lots of embellishments (corduroy buttons, ribbon, linnen thread, Designer Series Paper...) that make each card a little different and really dress up the whole package. This is a perfect gift for Mother's Day, or a birthday, or thank you...

Class fee is $25, no RSVPs will be accepted after April 10, 2009, and class sizes will be limited. Want to save a little green? RSVP by April 1st, and the class fee is only $20. When you RSVP, be sure to let me know which time session you will be attending.

FIFTH AVENUE FLORAL BOX!


This box will hold four cards and envelopes, and it makes a very elegant presentation for your cards. The front of the box is a window sheet, and it protects your cards, but lets you see what's inside at the same time!

FIFTH AVENUE FLORAL BOX CARD NUMBER ONE!


This is my favorite card in the box. I like watercoloring and cutting, so this one was right up my alley. AND, yes, that's why it is number one in my box!

FIFTH AVENUE FLORAL BOX CARD NUMBER TWO!


This is card number two for your box. This is the easiest of all the cards to make, but the addition of the patterned paper and the taffeta ribbon make it look like it took lots of time and work to put it together.

FIFTH AVENUE FLORAL BOX CARD THREE!


This is the third card for your box. The watercoloring makes this flower look so soft. WARNING: This card involves "cutting".

FIFTH AVENUE FLORAL BOX CARD FOUR!


This is the last card for Your box. I love the corduroy buttons! They are all so neat, I can't even decide which color I like best.

SO LONG LONDON!!

Below are the last of my London Regional swaps that I photographed to share with you here. I have the rest of them on display in the Rubber Room if you want stop by and check them out! I hope you have enjoyed seeing my swaps as much as I enjoyed receiving them.

MANHATTAN FLOWER FOR THE BIG SHOT!


Cindy Custers made this great swap card. She used the new Textured Impressions Manhattan Flower folder for the Big Shot. I can't wait to share this technique with my clubs next month!

THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS


This is one of my favorite stamp sets from the new catalog. I got so many swaps made with it, that I actually broke down and purchased it!! Now, I can't wait to start playing! This swap didn't have a name on it; but if it's yours, please let me know so I can give you credit!

TIME FOR MORE SWAPS!

Below are even more of the great swaps I got at the London Regionals last weekend! I can't decide which techniques to do with my customers first!

SCALLOP BORDER PUNCH!


This is the card my downline, Michelle, swapped at Regionals. I love the scallop border punch for the frame.

SWAP CARD!


This is another swap card without a name. I love the way she used the punch and sponged the edges. It looks so cool in real life! Who doesn't like the bling? The rhinestone brads are the perfect bling for this flower.

PARISIAN BREEZE!


This is my "current favorite" Designer Series Paper! I love the texture. I received this card in the card swap at the London Regionals, but there was no name on it!

MORE GREAT SWAPS!

Here are some more of the awesome swaps I received at the London, ON Regionals. Stampin' Up! events are one of the things I like best about being a demonstrator. I always get to meet lots of wonderful and creative demonstrators, and we all have fun!

GLITTER GALORE!


I received this swap card from Pam Duguay, and I love all the glitter she used!!

A GOOD EGG!


This is a swap card I got in London, ON, but there was no name on it. I'm sad I can't give credit to the person who created this great Easter card, but I'm glad you swapped with me! I think this is the cutest little Easter set.

ELEGANT EASTERN BLOOMS!


This is a swap I received from Ronda Wade at the London, ON regional event. She used the Eastern Blooms set with the new satin ribbon!

Be sure to check back over the next few days, as I will be sharing more of the awesome swaps I received from other Stampin' Up! demonstrators at this event!

FIFTH AVENUE FLORAL FOR EASTER!


I love the lily in the Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set. This is a swap card from Lisa Rouillier. It is difficult to see in the photo, but she used glitter on the lilly, and it is truly beautiful!

SHE GOT PUNCHY!


Amy Brown swapped this card with me. This is a great way to use up all those scraps of paper we have to save!

CRAZY FOR CUPCAKES!


This is a swap card I received from Alison Fereday. Thanks for swapping with me, Alison!

HOW ABOUT SOME SWAPS?

I am heading off to a Regional Seminar event, and I have been way busy making swaps to take along. I have a total of 125 of them, and can't wait to see what everyone else is swapping! I thought you might want to see what I've been up to, and I've posted all my swaps below. I hope you like! I think I went a little punch crazy. Hey, a girl's gotta love her punches!

MY HAPPY CHOCOLATE BUNNY HOLDER!


This guy is my 3D WOW swap for Friday evening's event! I love the way the bunny turned out, and he's all punches! Probably should have added a bow to make him a her bunny, but that thought just now popped into my head, and it is way too late to start adding things at this point. I think everyone will enjoy the little candy holder, though. If they don't, I know they'll enjoy the chocolate eggs, so I'm covered either way!

LOADS OF LOVE LABOR OF LOVE!


This is my WOW card swap! It has tons and tons of layers on it. I am not sure what I was thinking when I decided to cut out the door handle; cut out the windshield and add some crystal effects, cut out the tires and the hubcaps...... I think I owe some of the blame to my good friend "Bud Lite"!! I must say, however, that I do love the way this truck looks. It may turn me into a truckin' gal in the future. Unfortunately, I don't suspect any of my customers are going to want to do this at a workshop.

SILLY SESAME STREET!



I have been seeing these cute little Sesame Street characters on blogs, so I decided they might be a unique item to swap. I made Big Bird, Cookie Monster (my personal favorite), Elmo and Oscar. Cookie Monster used the Big Shot Scallop Frame Die and the other guys are all made from the Big Shot Scallop Circle Die. I think they are too stinkin' cute!
