Have a Fairy Good Day & Fantastical Fun!

I love these Fairy images, they were given to me by my friend Jen. At the moment I am ADDICTED to swirl stamps! I have been putting them on everything! I have a few sets of swirl stamps and I am trying to resist the urge to buy more! I put glitter glue on their wings and on the star wand.

Here is the card we made at Claudia's last night using TAC products. TAC has some of the best papers I have seen in a long time. I have the horse stamp set that we used, it is a great set. Thanks for the great project Claudia! We MISSED you Jen!

Six of us from the Las Vegas Stamp Club are taking a day trip to Mesa a week from today to attend the Rubber Stamp Events convention! I am so excited!!! My mom will be going to the convention and I know that I will run into some of my stamping friends from the Huachuca Mountain Stamp Club! Did I mention that I was REALLY excited??? We are going to have a BLAST!!!

2009 Calendar- December

Here is the December calendar page I created for a calendar page swap with some friends in Arizona. I just love the hedgehogs from Stampin' Up. When I first started stamping I just had to have them, that was about 5 years ago and I am just using them for the first time, ha ha.

Happy Birthday Butterfly Card

This is the card that we made Friday night at Claudia's house. The stamps and paper are both from The Angel Company (TAC). On the butterfly we used Stickles, I added the brown swirls once I got home for a finishing touch. I absolutely love this card, it is nice and simple. Thanks for the great project Claudia!

2009 Calendar- January

Last year our LV Stamp Club put together a calendar decorated with stamped images and it turned out really cute. My mom and I have decided to do a calendar project with some of our stamping friends in AZ. There are 6 of us participating, so we will each complete 2 months. My months are January and December. This is what I came up with for my January pages. I LOVE Stamping Bella and just had to use these two for my January "Happy New Year" page.

Paisley Cat

Every Friday night a few of us get together at our friend Claudia's house. This is an open stamping time where we all bring a project to work on and chit chat. My friend Jen gave me a few of these paisley cat images. While my mom was visiting we bought some paisley paper. This is what I came up with and worked on while I was at Claudia's Friday night. I am really happy with how they turned out.

Monthly Stamp Club

Last night it was my turn to host the monthly stamp club that I belong to. We have twelve members and we each host club once a year. I am glad October was my month this year because I LOVE Halloween. Each month we exchange cards and the host provides snacks and a project. These are the cards that I used for the projects. The Halloween card I created with my friend Amy last year when we tried to start a student card making club at the middle school we taught at. The club did not have enough students sign up, but Amy and I made a few really cute cards. The purse card is a technique that I have seen on a few blogs, I LOVE purses, so I just knew that this would be a fun card to make. I really enjoyed hosting club, hopefully I am lucky enough to get October again next year!
