Fruit and Flowers

I couldn't resist sharing two photos of one of my fave product suites, Berry Blossoms.  The stamp set shown above is Fruit and Flowers, page 99 of the IB&C.  I have always enjoyed the fruit sets... remember Citrus and Such, or Fruit Medley, loved them both... and the classic Tart and Tangy.  I have no idea why that is, but here we go again with another!  I do not have the set as of yet, but the DSP, Berry Blossoms just arrived and I love it!  The best part is that the DSP includes a bunch of the In Colors so I can use them together right away!  Did I mention the matching brads?  Sera

Some time to stamp

I had some time to play around today as I ran back and forth to the various activities of the day.  This card was made with the stamp, GROW, the convention theme this year.  I used the Hostess DSP, Cheerful Treat.  With this particular piece of DSP, the pattern is striped and plenty busy, but it makes simple cards a snap!  I still have a few melon mambo buttons that I love, so since it matches... couldn't resist.  Sera

Easy Events

I made some quick tags with the new In Colors and the stamp set Easy Events.  Demonstrators, if you went to convention, this is part of the workshop in a bag.  It rocks.  I gave a bunch of these tags to my hostess, Mary and she loved them as well as the new In Colors.  I have been working with the set Easy Events... so cute and quick, more to come!  Sera

 The Flirtatious Product suite is an awesome group of Stampin' Up product that coordinates together wonderfully!  Below are some pictures from convention using that suite as well as a card at the bottom.  That card is also pictures in the new Idea Book and Catalog on page 126.  The colors shown here are mainly melon mambo, wisteria wonder (new) and pretty in pink.  Check it out!  Sera

Convention Memories 2010 (three)

This was one of my favorite things at convention last year.  All of the new product was put together as a one huge candy shop.  The display was to show off the colors, but there were so many cute ideas that we oooed and aaahed for hours! SU! always does a wonderful job "showing off" their product.  The ideas are awesome and so valuable to the demonstrators, love it! This year at convention, our number has grown to eight!  We have three newcomers joining us this year and we are all soooo excited for them!  Can't wait.... now about those swaps... better get to it!  Sera

Convention Memories 2010 (two)

Last year was the debut of fabric!  SU! came up with their own line, and as you can see, there was plenty of interest!  They had terrific samples to share and we were all wowed with the product.  Fabric has been a great addition and if you peel in the new catalog... you will see plenty of it!  Above, Angie and Carmen are ready to spin the wheel for a free prize.  We each won something that day... great fun!  PSST!  By the way, welcome Amy and Becky M. to the sistas.  Both Lee Ann and Becky W. have added recruits and here they are officially welcomed!  Congratulations to all!  Sera
