Banner Day!

If you’ve been following my blog, you know I love banners!  Colorful…inspiring sayings…fun art!

I recently made an Aloha Banner.  I chose the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper basically because I wanted to use that beautiful shiny pattern for the pineapple!

Isn’t that fun?!!  Instead of the Banners Framelits I usually use, I tried this with the Lots of Labels Framelits.  I’ll show you a few photos from the ends:

I recently had a few of my downline ladies over to make banners of their choice.

Helen, Linda, & Destryee worked all day on their banners!!  I didn’t get pictures of all of them, but here’s Destryee’s Easter Banner:

Isn’t that beautiful?!  We all have a new appreciation for banners!!  It’s like making 20 different cards!  But the results are so great!

Here’s one I started on that day:

I’m pretty happy to have a Christmas Banner done!  It gets way too busy once we hit October…

I’d love to hear any comments you have!  Have any of you made a banner?

Thanks for stopping by…

Sparkle and Shine Tiffany Bag!

Today the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Team is featuring “Sparkle and Shine!”

Look at what you can make with the Window Box Thinlits Dies!!  A Tiffany Purse!

Don’t you just love it?!!  We made these at my downline meeting last weekend.  Got this cute idea from Connie Babbert… thanks, Connie!

It gets even better when you open it!

Told you!

Go check out what the other SSINK girls have made that sparkles and shines!

 

Maui Big Shots! Fun Challenge

Just for fun, I sent out a few things to my downline, the Maui Big Shots!  Their assignment was to make something using these supplies:

The paper was from Serene Scenery DSP Stack.  They also used White Perfect Accents, Mini Paper Clips Combo Pack, & a circle from Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  It’s amazing how different all the cards turned out!!

I have a very creative & fun team & we love getting together to stamp & share ideas!  I wish I would have taken a photo of the inside of Helen’s card…a huge bug-eating spider!  Beth should get extra credit because it looks like she’s the only one to use her paper clip!

Here’s what I came up with:

I paired Crumb Cake with Dapper Denim & added Crushed Curry & Cajun Craze.  The sentiment is from Layering Love.

Anyone interested in joining my team & becoming a “Maui Big Shot!” let me know!  If you sign up before this month ends, you’ll receive 2 FREE STAMP SETS OF YOUR CHOICE!  Most sign up to get the 20 – 25% discount.  But there are so many more benefits!  Friends, fun, & getting creative!

Leave us a comment about our cards!  I think they did a great job & love how different they all are!

Special Card for Global Design Project #GDP074

I’ve seen lots of exciting changes to my team, the Maui Big Shots, this last month!!  We’ve added several new demos and some of my demonstrators have stepped out of their comfort zone & hosted a Make ‘N Take!  I’m so proud of them & love all the fun & motivation I’m seeing!

I needed to make a special card for a new downline & went to the Global Design Project for inspiration!  Here’s their challenge for this week:  #GDP074.

Here’s the card I came up with:

Such a fun card & I never would have come up with it except that I followed this fun challenge!  And take a look at the inside!!

Wait for it…

Downline to the Rescue!

create-with-cheryl-scarecrow

I’ll tell you the story behind this bag…

A couple of weeks ago I got over my head with a Stamping Class!  It was immediately following a Downline Meeting with my group, The Maui Big Shots!  I was basically prepped for my Christmas Gift Class, but had some texts & emails on Friday when I was at work.  I knew I would have to prep for a few more, but I figured I could do it during class time.

I ended up having 15 – 16 people at class!!  I still don’t even know!  Great problem to have, huh?!  I had no time at all to cut more things out.  I’m so grateful to several of my downline who stayed to help!!

I learned 2 important things from this class, actually 3:

  • Always prep a little more than you need!!  The more organized the better!!!
  • Don’t use the same supplies for different projects (unless you have duplicates).  I was using Real Red Ink Pads in 2 of the projects (with 1 ink pad) & had to constantly look around for the ink pad!
  • Third thing…I can count on my friends!! 🙂

I just realized I should have made a pitchfork, not a broom.  Oh, well.  I know they’ll enjoy the little gifts they find inside!  Thanks again, gals!!
