Sweet Bella Shaker Card (Shannon)

I used some of my new products to make my first shaker card tonight....

It's not perfect, but the micro beads actually stayed inside the shaker!!! Miracle! :) The close-up below shows the beads a little better....I don't think I used enough but of course by the time I figured that out, it was too late.

Don't you just love the Sweet Bella designer series paper????

Stamps: Flower Fancy & Fresh Cuts

Ink: Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss

Paper: Kiwi Kiss card stock

Accessories: Sweet Bella DSP, Kiwi Kiss taffeta ribbon, dimensionals, cello bag, micro beads

More Convention + a bonus project (Shannon)

So here is the 3rd Convention make & take I got to do. I just love the color scheme (Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss & Tangerine Tango):
Then tonight I made a little card for my little sis....actually I was making a bunch of Diet Coke cards just to see what I could come up with and this one was definitely my fave....

Diet Coke + bling = happiness! :)

Convention Make & Takes (Shannon)

Today we had a department celebration for Convention--and we went to Donna's cabin and had lunch, relaxed and.....did the Convention Make & Takes (read more about that here)!!! I was so excited because 1) I never get to do these projects it seems like and 2) I hadn't even seen some of them until this afternoon!

Unfortunately I only finished 3 of them...this first one was the one I started off with because when I saw my Mom's finished version, I knew I had to make it....

I think I am really going to love using Pink Pirouette this year. Plus the bling! Isn't it fabulous!! I Vegas'd mine up a little...but I'm sure that doesn't surprise you....

This next one is a book mark....Pacific Point ribbon, Filigree brads and Eastern Blooms stamp set.
And an effort at a close up.....which is pretty bad b/c my photog is not the best....and I took these pics at night (never a good thing).

Anyway I'll post the other one I made soon. Plus the new catalog goes live on Monday and I simply am soooooooo excited!!!
