On Sunday, I held my March downline meeting and invited a couple of customers from the crop to attend.  Here we are working on the projects.

Stampin' Up! Maine stampers Dwnline Meeting Jeannine Tarrio, Manager


Stampin' Up! Maine Stampers Downline Meeting 2014 Jeannine Tarrio

Since quite a few did not know a lot of techniques, we made two cards I created using the Bleach Technique. I used a two step stamp, Stippled Blossoms, and stamped the solid image with bleach. After heating the image to make sure it was dry, I stamped the second image on top:

And I used the Rolling Marbles technique to create the background for the card below:

The next project was created by Carrie Arsenault and Carrie showed us how to make this cute little Scalloped Tag Topper box/bag. The 2,4,6,8,Box was one of the first 3-D projects I learned to make as a new demonstrator almost nine years ago, so below is an updated version using the Scalloped Tag Topper punch.

Thanks, Carrie, everyone loved this project.

Next, Linda H. brought a shoebox swap card for everyone to make.  Isn't it gorgeous?  I love all the details.

Thanks, Linda, a great shoebox swap. I love the Hexagon Hive, remember to use a piece of wax paper between the Thinlit and your cardstock.


There were lots of  items for Show N Tell, wished I took more pictures, isn't that always the way?  Anywho, below are a couple I did get pictures of:
