FESTIVE FLURRY ORNAMENT CLASS!

At the Creative Convention Kim Vogel shared a beautiful ornament in a box gift idea with us.  Of course, I had to make a few changes to accomodate the products I had.  This is what Keri and Beth and I put together this past week.  This is the snowflake ornament:

This is the box to put the ornament in.  We made our bow with oval punches.
 This is the ornament all tucked inside it's decorative box.

I will be giving several of these as holiday gifts to some family and friends.  I think they are so beautiful, and an ornament is always a wonderful gift to receive. 

I will also offer this as a Private Class.  The Private Class will be held twice on September 24th, 2013; once in the morning, from 10 a.m. until noon and in the evening September 24th, 2013 from 7 - 9 p.m. At class you will make two ornaments and decorate two boxes (one for each ornament). Your class fee will include one bolt of the Silver 1/8" Ribbon, a package of Frosted Finishes Embellishments (these are absolutely gorgeous); One Sheet of Dimensionals; One Package of Decorative Window Gift Boxes and 1/2 Pack of Winter Frost Designer Series Paper (all of these items can be found in the Holiday Mini Catalog).  You will need to bring your favorite adhesive along with you.  The cost to attend the Private Class is $30; and I will refund $5 of your class fee if you place a minimum $25 order the night of the Private Class.  You must RSVP prior to September 10th and full payment is do when you RSVP.

FESTIVE FLURRY FUN!

Last weekend at the Creative Convention fellow demonstrator, Kim Vogel, had a wonderful display full of beautiful things made with the Festive Flurry Bundle (stamp set and coordinating framelits).  I loved this frame she had on display.  Yesterday Nancy (another demonstrator friend) and I made a frame inspired by the one Kim had displayed.  Check it out!

Print Friendly and PDF
I did not have some of the goodies Kim used, so Nancy and I substituted with Lovely As A Tree (an oldy that's certainly not moldy), the sentiment comes from Greetings of the Season.  Kim used the Special Season Stamp Set from the Holiday Mini Catalog.  Other items from the Holiday Mini Catalog are the Festive Flurry Stamp Set and Framelits, the Silver 1/8" Ribbon and the Frosted Finishes Embellishments.  This is another one of those things I saw at the Creative Convention that I think will make a great gift this holiday season.

CHRISTMAS COLLECTABLES FRAME!

It SERIOUSLY is going to take me a very, very, very long time to clear my head and get "ungeeked" (for sure a real word) from last weekend.  I absolutely loved Ronda Wade's Creative Convention, and, yes, I would marry it if I could!  In addition to all of the great make and takes and swaps and business building tips and ideas, Ronda offered extra classes.  Did I mention Ronda is awesome?  I did not sign up for any extra classes, since I knew I would already be on overload.  BUT when I saw this frame was going to be an extra class...  well, I had to wrangle my way in.  I am so lucky Ronda could make room for myself and my two friends.  Did I mention Ronda is awesome?  This is the frame I made~~I am so impressed with me!!

Print Friendly and PDF
AND to make it even better, Ronda offered this class as a framed piece of art; OR a set of 3x3 cards; OR note cards.  A little something for everyone's needs.  Did I mention Ronda is awesome?

We used lots of fun items from the Holiday Mini Catalog including the Christmas Collectibles Bundle (the Christmas Collectibles stamp set and the coordinating Christmas Ornament Punch), the Winter Frost Designer Series Paper, Silver 1/8" Ribbon and Frosted Finishes Embellishments (these are so cool!)   Thanks so much, Ronda~~your are AWESOME!

Are you wondering yet????  Yes, I will be giving some of these as holiday gifts this year AND I will also be offering this as a class to my customers.  Be sure to check back and see when the class will be as I am positive you won't want to miss it!  The Rubber Room 3D Thursday classes will be starting soon!

Do you want to get my class schedule delivered right to your door (well, technically, your email box)?  You can subscribe to my newsletter by using the link at the top of my left sidebar.  The Newsletter will include all Rubber Room activities and specials as well as Stampin' Up!

STAMP STORAGE CASES!

This past weekend at Ronda's Creative Convention we decorated and embellished one of Stampin' Up's! Wood-Mount Stamp Storage Cases, and I love it!


Print Friendly and PDF
For this Storage Case we used More Merry Messages, the Festive Flurry Bundle (stamp set with coordinating framelits), a Pearl Jewel, some Linnen Thread, the Season of Style Designer Series Paper from the Holiday Mini Catalog and the Ovals Collection Framelits for the Big Shot.

This makes a wonderful "package" to put handmade cards in.  I will be doing a version of this (along with handmade cards to tuck inside) at an upcoming 3D Thursday in the Rubber Room.  Watch my calendar and newsletter for dates!

WITCHES' BREW HALLOWEEN TREAT CUP!



Print Friendly and PDF 
This is one of the cute little Halloween treats we made at the Creative Convention this past weekend.  It was sooooo much fun, and we did tons of make-and-take products, which I will be sharing over the next couple weeks, along with some awesome swaps.  It is going to take me a while to unwind, because there were just tons and tons of great ideas and samples!  I know you will love all of them as much as I do.  Now I need to purchase even more Stampin' Up! products to play with!!  One can never have too many new toys, though.

WHAT A WHIRLWIND AT THE CREATIVE CONVENTION!

My dear friends and fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrators, Keri and Beth attended the Creative Convention in Okemos this weekend, which was held by Ronda Wade.  What in incredible experience!  This is a table full of make-and-take items; swaps; seat treats.... 

Ronda always puts out the red carpet for her events and makes everyone feel so special.  We had lots of training and saw wonderful, creative demonstrations from Stampin' Up! demonstrators. 

Be sure to check my blog this coming week for lots of details about this event, up close photos and even dates for upcoming classes, where I will be sharing some of what I learned with all of you.

FLOWER SHOP SWAP CARD!

This is the third card Terri shared with us for our swap.
Print Friendly and PDF
I really like all the different flowers in this stamp set.  For this card Terri used lots of punches!  The little circle at the top is from the A Round Array stamp set, and it coordinates with the little round scallop punch.

IMPORTANT DECISION TO MAKE!

I am going to a Mini Convention next week, and I have joined a shoebox swap the first evening of the convention.  I am trying to decide which card to use for my shoebox swap.  Below are the two cards I am deciding between (these are also cards we will be making at the Rubber Room Holiday Stamp-A-Stack next week~so it may be a little sneak peek for some of you).

This first card is from the Calm Christmas stamp set in the Holiday Mini Catalog.
Print Friendly and PDF

This second card is from the Joyful Christmas stamp set, also available in the Holiday Mini Catalog.
The picture is sort of dark, but the sentiment is embossed in gold and says "Peace On Earth).

Please leave me a comment and let me know which one you think I should use for my shoebox swap.

TERRI IS NEXT!

Next up on our Demonstrator New Card Swap show is Terri.  Be sure to stop back tomorrow to see what great ideas she shared!

ONE MORE WILDFLOWER MEADOW!

This is "That Michelle's" last swap card.

Print Friendly and PDF
I love the color combination here.  I think it looks very bright and cheery!

WILDFLOWER MEADOW!

Here is one more card from "That Michelle" for our new catalog swap.
Print Friendly and PDF
"That Michelle" made cute little roses from the Simply Pressed Clay and coordinating molds.  And she used them for the center of the flowers on these cards!  "That Michelle" gets her name because she always fancies everything up and tackles those cards that take 3-4 hours to make....  I am very envious of her talents and patience!
