Christmas Money Holder

I got the pattern for this great money holder at Convention. It is super easy to make. I used the Wish Scrappin' kit for the paper and die cut elements. This will come in real handy around the Holidays!

Have a great day! XO, Mimi

More Clearance Cards!

Love these little owls. They are more of the Michaels clearance dimensional stickers. Aren't they a HOOT!? I paired them up with some Kim Hughes stamps.

Have a great day! XOX, Mimi

A Clearance Card

Boy, working at Michaels sure has it's perks! As soon as I go in each morning, I go straight to the clearance racks. It's like little clearance elves have been working all night to make me some new items. LOL!
My latest find are all of Michaels cute little dimensional stickers. They are made by Sandylion and are every bit as cute as those expensive Jolees. So, I bought a bag full of them and started cranking out these cute little goodies.
Of course, this one is for Father's Day but there were many more and I will show you some each day.
I made the toolbox from Cocoa paper that I stamped with a Kim Hughes tree stamp to give it the wood grain. I also got to use those tiny little eyelets that I have had for a century or more. I am tickled with how it came out.
Have a great day! XO, Mimi

You Rock!

More Just Jawing and I paired it up with the new DSP Ghostly Greetings and lots of yummy glitter! I love the inside with the Pop Rocks. Remember those things? They're great!

Have an awesome day! XO, Mimi

Cupcakes Make Everything Better!

And these cupcakes from SU! are the best! I started drooling over this set the moment I saw it at Convention and knew I had to have it. I colored it with Copics and paired it with more of the Georgia Peach. The colors in the picture are a little off.

Well, enjoy your day! XO, Mimi

A Fun Sketch Challenge to Try!

I love this Just Jawing set from SU! Way too cute! The sketch I used is from SCS weekly card sketch challenge. I love to do the sketches, when I have time.
I am using the new DSP Georgia Peach. I love the Regal Rose and Pink Pirouette paired up with So Saffron. The hearts are chipboard that I colored with ink and added glitter. I also added glitter to the bones and eyes.
Have a great weekend and thanks for checking in! XO, Mimi

What a FUN night!

Well, Friday night was the first Ladies Night Out at The Paper Rose Studio. It was a packed house and everyone seemed to have a wonderful time. I think everyone even got some work done on their stamping or scrapbooking or whatever they were working on. I can hardly wait for the next one!
I am trying to plan them for every 3rd Friday night. That makes it easy for everyone to keep it on their calender.
This Thursday is my first Mom's Play Day from 10 till 4. While the kiddies are back in school, Mom can come and get some more scrapping done.
If you are local, and want to join us, drop me an email so I can save a seat for you. I have enough room for 8 people to be comfortable and spread out.
Oh yeah, and my BIG Stampin' Up! order will be here on Wednesday! Yippee! I am so excited, I can hardly contain myself. You can be sure that I will be stalking Mr. Brown after I get off work! LOL!
Well, that's all that's new. I have to go get ready for work. Have a Fabulous "Back to School" Monday! XO, Mimi

P.S. This is a card I made a while ago and forgot to post. I used My Favorite Things stamps, Basic Grey paper and Copic markers.

I did it. I took the plunge!

After going to Convention, I decided to try having a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator web site again. I had one a while ago and shut it down to have my blog. But, now that Stampin' Up offers on line ordering, I thought I should give it another try. Go check it out by using to link to the left, above my picture.
I will be tweaking it a little at a time so be sure to check back often.

XO, Mimi

I've been a bad blogger!

I am so sorry I have been so bad since coming home from Utah. I think I am finally back in the swing of things. I have had a couple classes since being home and they seem to have gone well. Here are the items we made in class. The class fee also included lunch and the new Idea book and Catalog.
I am off work tomorrow and Friday and hope to show off something new to you. Meanwhile, have a nice night. XO, Mimi

Happy to be HOME!

I am home from Convention. Actually, I got home Sunday evening but it has taken me this long to get caught up enough to post something.

Stampin' Up! outdid itself yet again. Everything was amazing. The classes were very informative and the demonstrations ROCKED!!!

And look who I got to meet! Yes, that's one of my favorite bloggers, Kristina Werner.
I just had to ask her to pose for a photo.

I am sorry I don't have more for you right now but I promise to get back in the swing of things very soon!

Have a fabulous day! XO, Mimi
