There is so much you can do with this image...it could be appropriate for Weddings to Sympathy just by changing up the color.
Here is another version. I did this one at a Private Class over the weekend (Hi Christine!). My hostess Christine had seen some samples at my home with this set and asked if we could make a card with it.

Notice the cute personalized tag with their initals on it! I had cut out the scallop circle with the
Large Oval die cut for the Big Shot and then personalized it with their inital, Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Paper and some fun ribbon.
Beyond any challenge though, I just adore these gals. They are wonderful, dear friends and I love them for all they bring to our wonderful group of Demonstrators. Thanks for all you do, gals! Congratulations on completing your challenge!

The card base is Very Vanilla, and the layer is the new In Color, Soft Suede. I ran the top layer of Vanilla through the Big Shot using the embossing folder. I then used a piece of the Polka Dot Soft Suede ribbon (the reverse side of the polka dot ribbons is plain). I used the Oval All greeting set, stamped in Soft Suede, and layered it with an oval scallop punch. Easy peasy, done in less than 5 minutes!
These folders work beautifully with our new Wedding Collection. We have beautiful new papers, stamps and die cuts to make everything you need for your special day and it all coordinates perfectly. :)
Thanks for stopping by!

This is Nate, my former SAM (Service Account Manager). He is so awesome! He is sort of like a business coach, helping me with all aspects of my business. You Rock, Nate!
This is my Convention Roomie, Lisa Freeman from Virginia. You might remember that I went to her house last Fall for a girls weekend and Stampin' Up! Regional Seminar. Lisa is a Stampin' Up! Star! She placed #8 in the Country this year! WOW! Congratulations, Lisa!
This is the Opening Session on Day 1. Stampin Up! always does it up BIG! We always have performers and a huge Celebration to kick off convention! These gymnists are going to the Olympics in 2012! They were awesome!

While I was taking the picture of this project to share with you, Bella grabbed the card Kimberly made me. I had to take a picture because she looked so cute!

Aren't they sooo cute? I have loads of many other ideas headed your way! Just be sure to stay tuned!
And if that weren't enough...Build a Bear partnered with Stampin' Up! to make us our very own exclusive Bear! Each demonstrator was allowed to buy one at Convention. The bear is soooo adorable, and comes with her own Stampin' Up! Apron, and of course, her own bear stamp!
Being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator is so much fun and so rewarding on so many levels. Joining this amazing company is one of the best decisions of my life. I know what it's done for me and my family, and I know it could do the same for you. :)

I have been so busy this week in Salt Lake City for the Stampin' Up! Convention! I have been having a great time with thousands of other crazy stampers from around the US and Canada. I have gotten some great new ideas that I can't wait to share with you! We also have seen our new digital scrapbooking program, My Digital Studio, and it is amazing! I am so excited about this new product and can't wait to get my hands on it! It's important to note that this is not a replacement for traditional scrapbooking...just an additional offering for those who prefer to do everything digitally.
I hope you are all having a wonderful week! I get home late Sunday, so I will be sure to catch up with you all next week!

I used the BigZ Baskets and Bloom Die. All you really do it use the handle parts from the die and add additional cardstock to make the front/back and bottom. You could make this in any size you wanted..but I used it as a hostess gift for a recent workshop, and wanted it to hold a set of cards.
I used the new Bermuda Bay and Melon Mambo cardstock and a strip of Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Series Paper. I finished it off with some coordinating Melon Mambo polka dot double stitched ribbon.
Here is the set of cards that I put inside:
I used the Hostess Set, Kind and Caring Thoughts. It's a great set! I love the script on the phrases in this set. I used only In Color inks, ribbon and cardstock on this set of cards. I love that we have In Color in Markers now! It made making this set of cards a snap!
Hope you are all having a great week!
