July 21st Stamp-A-Stack


Here are pictures from my July 21st Stamp-A-Stack.  That night some of my friends attending the SAS surprised me with a little pre-birthday dinner and gifts!  I’ve included a couple pictures of those too!

This card uses the For All You Do new stamp set, Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie card stock and inks,
and I also used the Movers and Shapers Curly Label Big Shot die.


This card also uses the For All You Do stamp set, Cottage Wall Designer Series Paper, and the new Modern Label punch.


This card uses the new Greenhouse Garden and Paradise stamp sets,
and Melon Mambo and Soft Suede card stock.


I’m always struggling to make kids cards, so when I saw this cute new set Look Who’s Turning, I knew I had to have it. 
Also used Melon Mambo and Pretty in Pink card stock and ink.  By the way, my little niece Jacie is
turning six in September, so now I have a birthday card for her!


This card uses the set Very Thankful.  This set is this years Ronald McDonald set.  Stampin’ Up! is a national sponser of the Ronald McDonald House Charities.  Two dollars from the sale of this set goes to the Ronald McDonald House all year long!

And last but not least, here are a couple pictures of my gifts!

iTunes cards (the gals know I love to download audio books to my iPod!  Also a pair of beautiful earrings!  We also had a yummy dinner of chili, rice, cornbread and a birthday cake for dessert.  Thank you Shelby, Shawna, Kehau, Renee, Jayne, and Karen!!


Shawna also made me a beautiful card and gave me another iTunes gift card!  I’ve already checked out what I want to download!

Thanks again Shawna!!

July 8th Stamp-A-Stack

I can’t believe July is almost over!  It’s been a busy and fun month for me.  First my niece from California was here on vacation for three weeks, so I got to play with her, and then my sister and her husband went to California for four days and left me with their three kids, so I’ve gotten in some good play time this month!  So I’m sure you’ll understand why I’m posting some of my classes so late this month. 

Here are the cards that we made at my July 8th Stamp-A-Stack.  I used new sets and In Colors from the new catalog (which I love!).  If you haven’t received your new catalog yet, and would like one, just let me know!


This card uses the new Razzle Dazzle stamp set, Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Series Paper, In Color Markers and Rich Razzleberry card stock and polka dot ribbon.  I love the new Rich Razzleberry color!


This card uses the new Animal Stories stamp set, Tall Tales Designer Series Paper,
and the new Crushed Curry ink and ribbon.


This card uses the new Level 2 hostess set Asian Artistry. 
Let me know if you’d like to get this set free!


This card uses the new Circle Circus stamp set and the new Bermuda Bay ink, ribbon,
and card stock.


This card uses the new Level 3 hostess stamp set, Kind & Caring Thoughts, Melon Mambo card stock and ink,
and Soft Suede card stock and ink.  I can’t decide which I like best, Rich Razzleberry or Melon Mambo!

Summer Stamp Camp

Happy July!  Sorry for not posting for so long.  I’ve had my 12 year old niece from California, Cassandra in town for the last two weeks, and life has been fun and busy!

Here are some pictures from our recent Summer Stamp Camp!  Our next camp will be a New Catalog Stamp Camp on Saturday, September 12th.  Let me know if you would like information on registering!

Welcome to Stamp Camp!  Brenda Ballesteros always makes a fabulour welcome sign for us as well as darling favors.  This time was no exception.  The little welcome train was a hit with everyone as were the little backpack favors!


Each customer had a cute bag with all of their project materials waiting form them when they arrived. 
Shelby Nakama made the darling bags for us this camp!


Brenda and Jenn Sunada helped everyone get checked in, get their favors and a door prize ticket!


Stamp Camp just wouldn’t be the same without some great door and card contest prizes!!


Not to mention a yummy lunch, drinks and snacks!  Stampers need their energy!


Lorinne Nakahata did an embossing demonstration.  She demonstrated some great dry embossing techniques!


Camp also wouldn’t be the same without our very talented and hard working Pacific Stampers demonstrators. 
Here are Jane Nishiguchi and Traci Tomomitsu.  Both were project coordinators at this
camp and designed great projects and helped everyone make them!


Happy stampers, left around to the right, Blanche, Gayle, Renee, Arlene, Cheryl, and Faith!


More happy stampers, Brenda and Edna!

Michelle Ueligetoni another demonstrator who designed a fabulous project and helped everyone make it!

 And last, but not least…the projects that everyone loved making!

Traci designed this cute card, envelope and card drawer.  A great gift or one to keep for yourself!


Michelle designed this neat little gift box made with the Movers & Shapers Curly Label Big Shot die. 


Jane designed this great gift card holder.  When you take off the belly band and open up the flap, the gift card slides up into view.
