Fun Stuff!

It's hard to believe it's been a week but, well, it has! I haven't posted in a while and I'm sorry! I've been crafting though and have some pictures of some fun stuff to share with you! I hope it makes up for my absence! LOL!
First things to share with you are from my totally fun weekend event here in Ohio! We did what is called a "Shoebox Swap" - while I would love to swap shoes with one lady I met there (loved those leopard print shoes.....) it was really all about making enough stuff for 19 other ladies to make a card I designed! It needed to be all SU stuff since most of them were demos and it's a great way to build your sample base to show your customers! I am not a demo anymore but that's okay as it doesn't mean I'm not an SU junky! LOL! Okay, so what did I do to share?! I made a simple card that I really liked (not a biased comment at all huh?!! LOL) it used "Sahara Sand", "Shimmery White" and "Pink Pirouette". I also used the pink ink to match the paper, Versamark ink and a white gel pen! The ribbon is the same pink too! Here's a picture;



The SU sets I used above are "Bloomin Beautiful" and "Wonderful Words" - still available if you want them!

Another part of the fun was a separate event for those who signed up! It was a 3D swap. You were to make something other then a card, hence the 3D part, to swap out with the other ladies. Let me tell you, if you have the opportunities - don't pass it up! There are some awesome ideas out there that these ladies did! I now have some great gifts - only if I can part with them though! LOL! So, what did I make to swap?! Well, in honor of October being Breast Cancer Awareness month I chose to go with something pink! I had seen on the Scor Pal website a really neat pizza box that you could put practically anything in and decided I would do that! I used SU's new "Pink Pirouette" (again) for this project along with the same pink ribbon, Whisper White cardstock and their new scallop punch. The rhinestone isn't SU but you can get them at Michael's! Here are a few pictures of them;

Group shot with some of the items I used to create them

The inside! I included a little print out from my computer using the color codes to make the ink "Pink Pirouette" to match (no I'm not anal about matching at all....! LOL!) and, of course I had to include some of the Breast Cancer Hershey Kisses too! I've heard chocolate is a staple of a crafter's diet - right?! LOL!



Well that, and a class, eye doctor appointment, work, grocery shopping took up my week! What did you do for fun?! I'd love to hear about it!!

Until next time....
