A Special Friend!

I wanted to show off the gift I made for a special friend and her husband. They had their wedding vows blessed after over 40 years together. It was also her Birthday. So, I wanted it to be special.

While walking through a local craft store, I saw these unfinished bird houses. They are made in such great shapes. Of course, the church is the one that spoke to me and I knew I had to get one and decorate it for her.
After giving it a good base coat of creamy vanilla paint, I covered the outside with some pretty papers. I even uses some SU shimmer paper for the roof. Then I added some washi tape, velvet and pom pom trim, leaves, vines, flowers and for the finishing touch, some shimmery "snow".

I think she was very happy with it. I really enjoyed making it. Thanks for stopping by! XO, Mimi

WCMD in Review!

Saturday was such a fun time her at The Paper Rose Studio. The mix of ladies that attended was such a nice blend of ages and personalities. Thank you, so much, to those that came!

Here are the photos of the cards we made.

 We also made these beautiful rosettes using the Designer Rosette Bigz die and the Birds of a Feather DSP.
We also added some of the silver shimmer paper and paper flowers, ribbon and leaves. They turned out so pretty and each one different.

Then we played around with clothes pins and added DSP, magnets, ribbon and anything else we could glue on. They look so pretty on the fridge, holding important papers.
 I also showed everyone how easy it is to make a wrapped fabric or ribbon rosette using SU's giant glue dots. It makes quick work of these fun accents. They took them home to add to a card or a pretty project.
In between all this fun, we had lots of free drawings for yummy products. We were all pretty well fed too with sweets and a nice lunch. I can't wait till next year to do it again! XO, Mimi

One Big HUGE Post!

Wow! There are so many important things going on with Stampin' Up! right now! I thought you might appreciate it all in one big HUGE post instead or a bunch of smaller ones. So, here it goes, and in no particular order.

Right now, through October, Stampin' Up! is offering the following "BUNDLES" at a great discount.

Also, Stampin' Up! is trying something new! They are offering us the chance to buy single pieces from these select stamp sets: Word Play, Perfectly Penned, and Seasonal Sayings.

I have been with Stampin' Up! for over 10 years and I have wished for this so many times with different sets. I love this company! We ask, they listen!
