aah - here's the wonderful projects!

I've been eyeing up this card ever since Wini showed it to me. I think she CASE'd it from a great blog called Stamper Camper's Corner. This talented artist's name is Mary Brown and she has some wonderful ideas. Check out her blog. The stamped image is from a stamp set called and it's a level 2 hostess set. I actually didn't even give it a second thought when I was selecting level 2 sets - no reason, just that it didn't appeal to me til now! Also used are the flowers punched out from the Three for You punch box. The grosgrain ribbon was dyed using the Groovy Guava ink refill - so pretty!! Thanks Wini, for doing all of that extra work so that we can make this special card! I love it!
Here's another card that uses the Three for You punch box. This is a tri-fold card and that cute butterfly from the Garden Whimsy stamp set. Don't you just love the colors?? Although it took a while to make this card because of all the details, it is well worth it. Wini stamped and punched out all of the flowers for us! I love this women and of course, the card!
Here's that pop up card that we found over at Dawn's blog - Dawn's Stamping Thoughts. I love the reaction I get when people open up this card! Thank you Dawn for sharing this tutorial with all of us!

These two cards that used last year's level one hostess scrapbook kit called Friends and Flowers. I loved it so much, I kept ordering it, so now, I have a secret stash of these babies. Hmm, maybe I'll have to break them open in October. Thinking of throwing an Anniversary party for my being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator for five years! Sounds like a good idea! We'll see if there's enough time to do projects!

Now these next great projects are all courtesy from our angel, Jen. She did a TAC demo for us. She brought these three projects for us to make! Thanks sister!

I'm still not used to that "gorgeous" bathing beauty we used for that Joy fold card - haha! Jen said it reminds her of her grandma. I'd like to see grandma!!

One of my favorite holidays is Halloween, so I totally loved this tag! This was one of the projects Jen did at her open house, except I wasn't able to attend because I was working at the Made in Hawaii show. So, thanks for duplicating this cute tag!! I love it!
I love the background on this cute zebra card. We used the cuttlebug embossing folder and then a sanding block. Because the cardstock has a white core, when you sand it, the white shows through. How cool is that? Love the color combo!

Here's Jen doing the demo for us. She is always so entertaining! If you guys think you've got entertainment over the blogs, wait til you meet Jen in person! You are in for a treat! For you island girls, if you haven't been to a TAC demonstration or party, give Jen a call to schedule one. She'd love to do a party for you. The hostess rewards are pretty cool too. I'm glad that she shared with us!
Well, I made it home at about 1:00 AM, tired, but so happy with my beautiful projects, a full tummy, filled with lots of girl talk too! I didn't do so well waking up "early" (7:00 AM) to leave for Nolan's soccer game. Of course, he still cannot play, but we went to support his team members. Thanks for reading this long post!
