Who doesn't love butterflies?!  I absolutely LOVE this stunning card with the black butterfly and newspaper print....I was inspired by someone who made a card with these supplies and I knew I had to share it in our Stamp Club!

*Basic Black, Crumb Cake Yardstick

Yep, another card with a butterfly!  Don't you love it?!  This idea was from a swap card I received at Stampin' Up! Convention 2015!  It has quickly become one of my FAVORITE stamp sets in the catalog!

Stampin' Up! Convention 2015

I absolutely LOVE Stampin' Up! Annual Convention and 2015 was every bit of fun, friendships and stamping!  It was especially fun to share this year's Convention with my mom; her first trip to Utah and her first Stampin' Up! event.

My mom, Jan, and I getting ready for the Opening General Session to kick-start the weekend!

I love meeting up with my Stampin' Up! demo friends!  Brandy Cox, and my NEW Instagram friend that I finally got to meet in person, Dana Leigh Lewis!

Our 2015 Convention bag is the Stampin' Up! color Basic Grey and is a wool material with lots of room inside for stamps, ink, markers, ribbon, etc, etc, etc 

I received this lovely decorated gift box from my Stampin' Up! demonstrator upline, Jan Reid!

Prize Patrol is a highlight of Convention; receiving FREE gifts according to the color of your wristband!  Marcia and I had Marina Mist and were winners of a NEW Project Life Stamp Set and Grid Cards!

Stamping is a fun part of Convention; here Jan and I are making a tag with some new products that will be featured in the 2015 HOLIDAY CATALOG! 

Meeting up with more of my Demo friends!  Jennifer Blomquist, Marcia Swanson, and Marianne Stuard

Thanks for stopping by today!
Happy Stamping!

Inspire Create Share 2015

I am so excited to be attending the annual Stampin' Up! Convention in Salt Lake City, Utah! The event is called Inspire Create Share. It is a chance to meet up with Stampin' Up! Demonstrator friends, see new product, learn stamping techniques, and have tons of fun!

A fun part of the convention is swapping cards; a great way to meet new friends and get cute card ideas! My swap this year of course had to pull in my love of Disney!

I used two circle punches (1 1/4" for the head and 3/4" for the ears) and I used the Owl Builder punch for the heart on Minnie's bow.

The greeting "Happy Birthday" is from the Tin of Cards stamp set; don't you love that font?!

Also, it's fun swapping in an organized group.  This is my second year participating in the Swap In Your Jammies held at the Marriott City Creek.  I made 52 of these cards below and received 52 beautiful cards in return!

Happy Stamping!
