Here's what we made in my Blendabilities Class

Just a quick post to show what we did in my last class. The main project featured the Blended Bloom stamp and was a journal. I think they turned out quite nicely. 

Then we made a card in case someone wanted to gift their journal. It is inspired by my swap from the Unite and Excite event. 

The Blendabilities feature on this card is that we colored the rhinestone green. That's one of the awesome things these markers can do.

Unite and Excite Event

A couple of weekends ago I had the chance to attend my first Stampin' Up! event. It was just a small one but still loads of fun! Demonstrators from all over New Mexico came to share ideas and stamp together. I got to go with my awesome upline Amber.


When we got there they had some little paper crafted treats waiting for us.These would be fun and simple Halloween treats to make for someone. 

We made this super cute project with some of the products from the holiday catalog. I have seen this die cut used before, but never for a pumpkin. How cute is that?

Then something super exciting happened. I won something!!! I won a stamp set from the holiday catalog. Stampin' Up! gives away so many prizes at their events. 

Next I did some swapping. Swaps are when you make the front of a card and trade with other demonstrators to get ideas. Here were the swaps I made. 

Then just when I thought it couldn't get any better, they did an all attendee give away. We all received the Everyday Occasions kit from the annual catalog. How awesome is that?
