North Carolina Demonstrator Quarterly in Wilmington

My downline Kaye Owenby and I traveled across North Carolina to Wilmington this past weekend.  Our destination was the NC Stampin' Up! Demonstrator  Quarterly.  Oh what fun!  A weekend of stamping, socializing, eating, and learning!  That's my idea of a perfect weekend. Wilmington waterfront

Quarterly people

Stampers hard at work.

The Wilmington ladies put on a great Quarterly.  On Friday night we had a shoe box swap.  Each person brought a card with everything needed to make it in a box.  We made 22 cards that night.  Here is a picture of the card that I brought.  Pinterest saves the day again!

We had great projects on Saturday.  I want to share a few of them today.

Quarterly plastic box with matching card

Look at this great card holder made from the full Wide Stamp Cases.  We also made a matching card.  I feel a class might come in the future using this idea!  What do you think?

We also made a pop up card.  I'll share pictures of the front and the inside of the card.

Aren't these great projects!  I'll be sharing more about our Quarterly in upcoming posts.  Have a great day!

Framed Embellished Ornaments

Embellished Ornament Frame

I've been working on items for a craft fair coming up in the Conover, NC area.  I love to make frames!  This frame uses the snowflake paper from the Holidays Fancy Foil Designer Series Paper for the background placed on top of Whisper White Card Stock.  The ornaments are cut from Silver Foil using the new Precision Plate and the Delicate Ornaments Thinlit Dies.  The ornaments are backed with Lost Lagoon Card Stock.  Silver Cording was used for the bows on each ornament.  The frame I used is from Ikea and measures 5 X 7.

A Cute, Quick Halloween Treat

Need a quick and easy treat for Halloween?  Here's just what you need.  I adapted this treat holder from one that I saw on Pinterest.

Matchbox #2

And when you open it ....


Matchbox #1

I started with a piece of Basic Black Card Stock cut at 5 X 2 1/2.  I scored at 2, 2 1/4, and 4 1/2.  Use a bone folder to crease your folds.  I used the Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper cut at 2 3/8 X 1 7/8 for the front.  The Happy Halloween sentiment came from the And Many More stamp set and punched out with the Washi Label Punch.  I used Pumpkin Pie Card Stock.  The spider was stamped with the Howl-o-ween Treat stamp set and cut out with the Boo to You framelits.  Pop up the sentiment and spider using Dimentionals.  On the inside use some snail and place your two Lifesavers.  You can then fold up the half inch and secure it using the Handheld Stapler.  Don't you just love that stapler!  The eye balls use the 1/2 inch circle punch.  Use the White Stampin' Chalk Marker to put that spark in the eyes.  The top has another spider and the Boo! from the Boo to You framelits  in Pumpkin Pie.  And there you have it, all ready to give.  Who wouldn't want to get this cute little Boo!
