CYCI #50 Designers Choice - Holiday Edition

Hello and happy weekend before Christmas!  This week at www.canyoucaseit.com it is Designers Choice, so (almost) anything goes! 

 

I'm excited about this project because is spans the Holiday Catalog, the Spring 2015 Occasions catalog (sneak peek) and my leftover items from the November Paper Pumpkin kit.  A trifecta of crafty goodness.

I made these invitations for a nice lady I met at my craft bazaar in November.  She's planning a surprise for her husband and these will play a part.  I made 11 of them, all different and really liked how they turned out. She liked them too!




For the invitations, I used the following Stampin' Up! products:

Real Red, Whisper White and Lost Lagoon Cardstock
Trim The Tree Designer Series Paper Stack
Holiday Invitation Stamp Set
Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad
Lost Lagoon Ink Pad
Pear Pizzazz Stampin' Write Marker
Real Red Candy Dots
Bow Builder Punch
Paper Pumpkin Leftovers
Dazzling Details

Last Minute (Not Quite) Christmas Tags

Hello!

Boxes are being mailed today and I am down to just 20 more cards to address and mail!  I love this time of December crafting, when the rush is almost over (to get everything done) and I can just play and use my leftovers.

I needed to make some tags, and got this idea (to use the Confetti Stars Punch) from Katina Martinez:  http://www.lovinglifeslittleblessings.com/2014/12/simple-star-christmas-tags.html

I used leftovers from the November 2014 Paper Pumpkin and the Many Merry Stars Simply Created kit.






Enjoy and thanks for stopping by!

Happy Holidays!

CYCI46 Project Life by Stampin' Up! Scrapbooking

Hello and welcome to CYCI46 Project Life by Stampin' Up!/Scrapbooking!

This week at www.canyoucaseit.com we are memory keeping.

 

Back in February of this year, we had a downline Sale-a-bration meeting at Andrea's house. We did a make and take, had dinner, talked some business, but most of all had great fun.  This is one page of a 3 page layout I did using the Project Life style of memory keeping, paired with the Everyday Adventure Project Life Card Collection by Stampin' Up!

























I downloaded copies of the pictures from Heidi Boos at http://stuckonstampin.blogspot.com/2014/02/2nd-annual-sale-brate-our-downline.html so that I could print them out and save the memory of a wonderful evening.


Heidi and Andrea are my upline demonstrators and I couldn't ask for better mentors.  They have become great friends!

Did you notice that the two bottom corner pictures are landscape 3" x 4" slots and I've taken a 4" x 6" photo and "split" it across the two spaces?  I love this trick to using your Project Life page protectors to their full extent.  Also, the card shown in the middle bottom is my swap for the event.

I used the following Stampin' Up! products on this layout:

Everyday Adventure Project Life Card Collection by Stampin' Up!
Project Life Photo Pocket Pages
Sweetheart Punch
Melon Mambo Cardstock
Jewel Rhinestone
Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities Marker
Soft Suede Ink Pad
Sponge Dauber

Come check us out at www.canyoucaseit.com and show us your memories!

Thanks!

CYCI41 Clean and Quick

Hello!

Welcome to CYCI41!

Our challenge this week at canyoucaseit.com is to create a Clean and Quick card. No more than two layers and one embellishment.





I spent last weekend at the beach crafting with 4 other Stampin' Up! demonstrators on my team and I had a leftover "stencil" from cutting leaves out with the Big Shot and the Fun Fall Framelits Dies.  Voila sponged leaves!  I'll admit though, it does have two embellishments if you count the staple and the ribbon.




I used the following Stampin' Up! products for this card:

Very Vanilla Cardstock
Merry Everything Stamp Set
Note Tag Punch
Fun Fall Framelits Dies
Stampin' Up! Handheld Stapler and Mini Staples
Pumpkin Pie 3/4" Chevron Ribbon

CYCI38 Designer's Choice

Good day crafters!

Welcome to CYCI38!  At canyoucaseit.com, we have Designer's Choice happening this next week.


I actually did this design for my stamp club last week, but I had used only Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral on my club card version.  The ladies at my club started using different colors and it just makes the neon effect that much better!


This technique is so quick and easy, but definitely lights up a room (he he).  Here's the link to Lisa Brown's youtube video demonstrating it. This is where I first found the idea (yep I double CASED it):


I used the following Stampin' Up! products for this card:

Calypso Coral, Whisper White and Basic Black Cardstock
Vivid Vases stamp set
Versamark Ink Pad
Jewel Rhinestones
Daffodil Delight, Coastal Cabana, Old Olive, Calypso Coral and Melon Mambo Stampin' Blendabilities

Have a great weekend and check us out at canyoucaseit.com!

Portland Area Stampin' Up! Unite & Excite Event

Happy Wednesday Friends!

Last evening, I had the pleasure of attending the Portland area Stampin' Up! Unite & Excite demonstrator event with about 75 very talented demonstrators.  It was a fun filled evening (starting with dinner at the Old Spaghetti Factory with 49 of my new friends)! 

There was swapping, display boards and lots of information sharing.  Oh, and the prize at the end was spectacular! 

Here is a group picture of a part of our group.  From left to right: Vicki Johnson, Kate Neely, Laura Howell, me and Heidi Boos (thanks Heidi for the picture!).


We were fortunate to have Andrea from Stampin' Up! join us.  We made cards for her and surprised her at the start of the event with a big basketful.  This was my card for Andrea:






Of course, there was swapping.  I came away with some very beautiful cards (and new ideas).  Here was my swap card:


Have a great rest of your week!
