There are many facets to Creative Inspiration. First of all, I am an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. Please join me in the world of paper crafting and rubber stamping. Secondly, I offer classes in creative home-keeping including sewing, cooking and home decor. I also offer beautiful rental items for events, such as table-cloths, mercury glass votives, vases and centerpieces, silver candelabras, crystal chandelier and Opulent Treasures serving pieces. I have a wonderful Creative Inspiration Studio for classes or I can do workshops in your home. I welcome you as a customer.

Fab Friday Challenge

In the past, I have not entered very many challenges.  However, I am determined to do better.....

I used the DSP Quatrefancy as my inspiration.  I CASE'd a 3d framed art from Mary Brown at Stamper Camper, using all things Mosiac Madness - punch, embossing folder and stamp.  This is for the Fab Friday 21 Challenge

Cards from June classes

These are the card projects that were CASE'd for my June classes.  There are so many talented Stampin Up Demonstrators who provide ideas for me to copy.
Sparkle from Irridescent Diamonds.  Stamps are Swallowtail and Serene Silhouettes and Pappillon Potpouri 

Window sheet from Quatrefancy DSP

Mosiac Madness stamp

The rose is made from the new SU clay and molds.  

Starting a Paper Crafting Swap Group

After a visit from a friend and retired extension agent, I have the motivation to start a paper-crafting swap group. Is anyone interested? We would meet once a month and exchange projects based on a theme....color, stamp, technique, etc. I would like to start in September, so that allows enough time to recruit folks and get our first swap done. Please share this with other paper crafters you know. If we have six people, then we could host the swap twice during the year. It would be at least a 6 month commitment. Let me know of your interest and available times.

This would be in addition to my hostess clubs and classes, but there would be no fees.  The costs would be the supplies for the exchange projects and refreshments when you host.

She Thought She Could...So She Did

I was hired as an event planner for a high school graduation party....Here are some of the shots, where Stampin' Up Products were used.

Note the banner that says graduate made with the pennant punch and some retired letter stamps.

The Designer Rosette Bigs XL die cuts on the wall. 

The pennant punch banner tops the Stampin' Up! Feels Good stamp cut in vinyl 
using MDS and an electronic cutter.
