Hello and welcome to our May edition of our monthly Creative Circle Design Team’s blog hop! Every month I literally get so excited to see what these amazing ladies have to offer us all. They are all experts with their Silhouette Cameo (electric die-cutter machines) and I am still a novice. I had high hopes for using the machine more, and when I went to use it for this hop, to make an adorable baby cradle from the file our wonderful leader Liz Holloway sent us, I started having computer problems. Luckily I can still blog from my phone and tablet, I will have to get the computer in to the shop for a quick check-up and repair, wish me luck!
So forgive me, I’m going to share with you the projects I featured at my WTG (Way To Go) Day for my Top 4 downline (they accrue points on a quarterly basis for sales, recruiting, anniversary with SU, and for promotions). Unfortunately one of girls was unable to be here this time, but she will still get her goodies! These are some “sneak peeks” at some new product coming out in our 2017-18 Annual Catalog that launches on June 1st.
Gerber daisies from our local garden center, Hewitt’s, aren’t they pretty? All four are different colors.
These little embroidered Owl totes are from 31 Bags, I saw they were on clearance rack a few weeks ago, so I ordered them for this special day.
Fresh fruit, two homemade (and a little lopsided) quiches, blueberry/peach tart, sparkling juices and other beverages rounded out our menu for breakfast.
Elizabeth, Amye and Sharon were in my top 4 as was Lisa, but she couldn’t attend, we missed you Lisa!
A few weeks ago I found these cloth covered jewelry trays at one of the big box craft stores and I just knew they’d come in handy for some special project. Well, once I went to OnStage in Toronto last month, and saw the gorgeous new papers that would launch in the new catalog- I had my idea- a daisy themed WTG Day! The colored pieces are 3″ squares in Pool Party, Daffodil Delight and Whisper White.
This box stands by itself, but is lighter than a frame. I plan to make other inserts through the seasons so I can rotate and keep this in my craft room. Don’t you just LOVE the new daisies?? And the new punches?? This piece features 4 new stamp sets! (I received them at OnStage as prizes!)
I was pleased with how these projects came out, I can’t wait to hear what you think! Wondering if you would like to take a daisy making class?
The girls also made a new In-Color Stampin’ Tool- they punched, stamped and inked up this paper with the 5 new In Colors. Don’t you just love them together?? I don’t know how Stampin’ Up! manages to do it, but these colors are so on trend right now. Lemon Lime Twist is my favorite! What about you?
The supplies to make the vase of daisies was from my local Dollar General store (artificial flowers- just pluck the “heads” off and use the stems as your base) and a little candle holder worked perfectly.
We had a fabulous morning of stamping, laughing and crafting. So much fun!
Well, now I want to share a baby card, since that is our Theme after all… Rock a Bye Baby.
I used the stamp set “Little Cuties” which will retire this month, I think this is a versatile set- you can make a lot of projects with this one! I paired it with Cupcakes & Carousels DSP stack and colored my rocking horse with our awesome Watercolor Pencils! What do you think?
