You probably have been wondering where I have been for the last two weeks. Well, I have been to Onstage and visiting the Orthopaedic doctor. Below is a picture of the splints I have for my hands for de Quervains Tenosynovitis.
Here is a card I made last month with the retiring Sweet Little Something.
I love this stamp set and can’t believe it is being retired so soon. Great for baby cards and also for Easter.
Have pictures from Stampin’ Up! 2018 Onstage, swaps and new products to show you. Will post more soon.
Something for Baby Gift Card Holder
I have lots of cards to catch up and put on my blog. Today is a quick and cute card I made and have on my card buffet.

3. Glue DSP to right side of base card leaving about 1/8” border.
4. Stamp inside saying in black ink.

I wanted to show the versatility of Stampin' Up!'s Label Love stamp set so I created a pre-buy card class for my customers. I paired the Label Love stamp set with the Artisan Label punch to create an all occasion card sampler. Below are the cards samples:
If you weren't able to attend the class in June, I have an option for you! I have created a document with, pictures, supply list including card stock sizes, and directions for all 6 cards made at my June class. There are 6 pages in all – one per card.
"How can I get the directions?" you ask. Easy, two ways:
1. Purchase the Label Love Bundle (page 32 of the big catalog #132723 (wood) $34.75 or #132722 (clear) $28.75) from my online store and then send me an e-mail telling me you made the purchase. I will confirm your purchase within 24 hours and e-mail the document to you. Click on the order now button near the top of the right hand side bar to place your order.
2. If you already have a demo or already have purchased the bundle then you can buy just the directions for only $2.95 using my Buy Now PayPal button below.

Today I participated in 3 organized swaps. Some of you may wonder what are the differences between organized swaps and general swaps. Organized swaps are hosted by a demonstrator who sets the requirements for the swap, such as:
–Type: card front, full card, 3-D, scrapbook page, mini album, etc
–Quantity: 5, 10, 20, 75, number of Groups, etc.
–Restrictions: minimum 2 layers and an embellishment, WOW only, fancy fold, technique, punch art, etc. (you may do more just not less than the requirements)
–Date and Time
Whereas, general swaps can be anything you want! You can do any of the above for your general swaps, which generallly are either card fronts, 3-D or scrapbooking. You have fun swapping with everyone, everywhere, it is either more relaxed or stressful depending on your personal preference and what you want to do with your swaps.
Personally, I like both and each has it own merits. In organized swaps there a lot of people swapping in a scheduled manner not much time to get to know your fellow swappers as you are part of a schedule. In the general swaps you ask or are asked to swap and you get to look at the swaps and ask questions about the swap or demonstrator, a more personal experience.
So now you know what swaps are about! Here is the first of three organized swapsI participated in today:
12:30pm Card Candy Swap hosted by Jennifer Blank Group 3 Label Love:
Below is the recipe for the By the Tide Card Candy. I am not posting the Label Love recipe as it is pretty self explanatory.

Ink: Midnight Muse, Baked Brown Sugar, Real Red, Crumb Cake, Calypso Coral, Cantalope Crisp; Markers: Island Indigo, Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake
Accs: Sponges, Basic Jewels Pearls, Mini Silver brads, Apothecary Accents and Oval Collection framelets, Paper Snips; Punches: Decorative Label, Artisan Label, 1 ¼” Scallop Circle, Scallop Oval, Large Oval, Wide Oval, 1” Circle
Note: Stamped coral piece is hand cut. Stamp image on 3 3/8” x 3” Very Vanilla CS, then using paper snips, cut a wavy line from one corner to the other. Turn 90 degrees and repeatuntil all sides are wavy. Glue onto 3 5/8” x 3 ¼” Crumb Cake CS. Again start in one corner and cut wavy lines parallel to Very Vanilla.
As I want the posts live after the swappers get their swaps, I will post again after each swap. See you soon!
