Leadership and Regional in Phoenix, AZ

I'm back from Leadership and I'm so excited to share everything with you. Unfortunately I had to wait a little bit because my laptop is STILL in for repair. UGH!!! I borrowed this laptop (thanks Shannon!) and downloaded my photos and I'm hoping the post works out (reminder: I'm new at this so I'll be proud if I can get the photos posted at all ! If someone can tell me the trick of how to get photos placed int he right place on the page that would be huge!! If they look good now, it is just luck.)

While I was at Leadership I was in two organized swaps. One was using product from the Occasions Mini and one used products from the SAB catalog. Here are my two submissions for that. For the first one I went to the Occasions Mini and used Something Sweet (#118589) which is one of our new clear mount stamp sets. You can also get it in the regular wood mount (#117688). Stampin' Up! didn't want to compromise quality so we are still using the same red rubber and foam that gives the wonderful impressions that you associate with Stampin' Up! We've added a different mounting option and now you can mount these stamps to any one of our 9 sizes of acrylic blocks (page 6 of the mini). All four sides of the acrylic blocks are grooved with finger grips and you won't believe how easy it is to stamp with them.

For the second card I used the Sale-A-Bration set called Vintage Labels (wood mount # 118392; clear mount #119122) and I added in the Very Vintage wheel (#117693) and a touch of our whisper white organza ribbon (#114319).

This next one (with the tiger) is a swap from my fantastic up-up-up-up-upline Carol Bartle. Whenever I see her she is happy and smiling. She is so enthusiastic and its contagious. She's also very caring and happy to share tips. She's a wonderful lady!

For this card she used the top note die (#113463) in the Big Shot machine (#113439), Fox and Friends (wood mount #117002 or clear mount #118565).

Hopefully I'll get some more photos downloaded and posted later on. I saw a bunch of cute Valentine cards in my swap bag so I'll work on those.

I'm also swamped with the Pajama-Scrap-A-Rama that I've got on the calendar for this weekend. We'll be in Dunn Loring scrapping, creating and papercrafting for 20 straight hours. Want to join us? Let me know and I can send you all the details. Until later....
