Here is a photo of me sitting at one of the reserved demonstrator tables at Stampin' Up!'s home office in Riverton. I felt special because I've never been any where and found a reserved table for me! Stampin' Up! really treats its demonstrators like members of the family. Of all the direct sales companies I've ever worked for, I've never had one make me feel like I really matter, until I found Stampin' Up! It is nice to know that they aren't only concerned with what I can do for them. They are genuinely concerned with what they can do for me as a demonstrator too.

Card Stock You Will Need:
2 Pieces @ 6” x 6 5/8” – both scored at 1” and 5 5/8” (6 5/8” side). This will be the part the drawer slides into.
1 Piece @ 9 7/8” x 8 ½” – scored at 1”, 2”, 6 ½”,& 7 ½” (8 ½” side) - scored at 1”, 6 7/8” & 7 7/8” (9 7/8” side) This is the drawer
1. Score all your Card Stock as directed above. To orient you, the drawer is the 9 7/8” x 8 ½” piece. The box consists of the two 6 x 6 5/8” pieces. A half circle punch is used at one end of the drawer to add a small opening to pull out the drawer.
2. On the opposite side of the “half-circle”, you are going to punch the eyelet border using the eyelet border punch along the ENTIRE side! This will end up being the fold over part of the drawer. Using this punch upside right gives you the best punches possible and enables an easy clean up. Move the paper along until the scallops line up – the silver will show through.

I had a lot of help with the invites and response cards towards the end. Both my daughter Jennifer AND her fiance Landon helped a great deal. We even had the best man here doing a little sponging as well. I knew there was a reason why I liked this guy Jennifer brought home almost 3 years ago. He was the first one that ever truly made a good impression.
Then last week was spring break at school so my sweet and wonderful husband took me to Hawaii for the week. We went to Oahu and Waikiki Beach. It was awesome and the weather was gorgeous. But my favorite part of Oahu was the north shore and snorkeling at Ma--HAMANA--HAMANA Bay(I don't remember the name...you know those Hawaiian names are hard to pronounce let alone remember). I'd never been snorkeling before and you know we are never too old to try new things. Sometimes the old body doesn't want to cooperate...you know how that goes. But we had an awesome time.
So, I guess I should post some pics of the trip and I will as soon as they are downloaded. To be honest, I'm surprised I'm even posting; it seems like I can't get enough sleep since returning. But I will post photos of the wedding invites. I am really pleased with how they turned out.

ACCESSORIES: Ivory colored taffeta ribbon from Michael's, Scallop Circle Punch, Scallop Edge Punch, 1 3/8 " Circle Punch and 1/16" Circle Punch

I've been hanging on to this photo for awhile and I don't know why. This is one of my favorite birthday stamp sets. We made it a few weeks ago at one of my workshops, and the ladies loved it.
This is what I used.
STAMP: Crazy for Cupcakes
INK: Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Pink Passion
PAPER: Chocolate Chip, Pink Passion, Whisper White, and Bella Rose DSP
ACCESSORIES: 5/8" chocolate chip grosgrain ribbon, blender pens, dazzling diamonds glitter, horizontal slot punch.
Since chocolate chip is a very dark card stock, I used a piece of whisper white on the inside too. I just used the slit punch on the back half of the card and slid the white paper in so there would be a place to write.
Thanks for stopping by.

I also used the Sale-A-Bration Yummy stamp set. This would make an excellent Easter gift card holder, or even a cute holder for a springtime birthday gift.
If you need to know the exact dimensions, feel free to email me.
Have a wonderful day!

It has been a couple of weeks since my last post and that's because I've been busy. I finally, after being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator for 2 years, had my first workshop this past Saturday. This is a photo of my workshop door prize. It is a Kit Kat Bar wrapped in the Regal Rose DSP that is in the current Patterns Pack II that is a Level I hostess gift in the current catalog. I have to admit that I got this idea from my friend and trainer Kim . I went to one of her workshops in December and we did this with Christmas paper and stamp. So I thought, "Why not?" I also demonstrated this at my workshop. Of course I used the Yummy stamp set that is in the current Sale-A-Bration catalog, Regal Rose ink, Regal Rose Card Stock, 5/8" Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon, and Stampin' Dimensionals. Oh...and don't forget the glitter; Dazzling Diamonds. I feel like I'm forgetting something, but I can't remember what it is. I'm sure I'll remember as soon as I close out this post.
Until next time...
