Milwaukee Regional

Here are a few shots from our Milwaukee regional last March, two months ago today!  Yes, March, a long time ago it seems.  Everyone had a great time stamping away.  They even stamped their make and takes!  The picture above was shows off a stunning display of quilted items that we all plan to try.  Hee Hee, or have Angie try for us, hee hee!  It was a great time with the sistas!  Sera

Paper Doily

Both of these cards were a part of the samples that were shared at our sista retreat last month.  Each card has a different/creative use for the paper doily (a large sizzlit die, 125592).  The top card is the negative image and the bottom card is the actual "punched" piece of cardstock.  My favorite use for this die is a tone on tone card that has just enough pattern, yet it still stands out.  Here are a few tips when using this die.  First I put a piece of cardstock shim on the outside of my "sandwhich" that seems to help "cut" the image better.  Second, once the doily is punched, use your bone folder and curl the doily with it (as though you were curling ribbon) and the pieces will fall out a lot easier.  Both of these tips came from some awesome sistas, thank you!  Sera

Awesome Blossoms!

I am super excited that this awesome blossom punch is in the next catalog!  If you've enjoyed using this punch and stamp set, Mixed Bunch, tell your stampin' friends all about it!  Woot Woot!

The two samples above are from the Milwaukee regional.  Love them both!  Sera

Great to be back!

This is a great picture from our 7th annual stamp sista retreat. We spent the day stamping, sharing and laughing... and eating of course. It was a tremendous day, especially after a very long winter. Thanks to all of the sistas for their awesome inspiration!  Enjoy our retreat photos... and we are back to regular scheduled postings!  Woot!  Woot!  Sera
