I had a great time at convention this year.  It was so much fun seeing old friends and meet new ones.  For the first time, I was able to go to all the convention activities and still have time to sit, and visit with old friends.
My swaps were terrific!  I came home ready to start a new year and work on expanding my horizons.
I can't wait to work on setting up a schedule for classes, as well as offering online classes.

We received this great red purse with 3 stamp sets and 3 mini make and takes.

Crazy Fun Demonstrators!!!!

The stage is always decorated with the theme, bright lights and colors.

A fun night with friends from around the country, after a long and busy day.

A suitcase full of swaps to take home and enjoy!!!

Paper Pumpkin News & Weekly Deals

Hello and Good Day to You,
I joined the Paper Pumpkin Boot Camp 7 weeks ago  and have been given a great deal of information about the Stampin' Up program.  Each week we are given challenges.  One of the requirements is to set goals in building  my customer base.  I have listed them below to share.   The goals are:  1. Share the Paper Pumpkin Program, with my customers and people I talk to throughout the day.    2.  Invite four subscribers to sign up for a month to try the program (this is a  boot camp challenge).  3. Start a Paper Pumpkin Club (great sharing time).    4. Share the  different ways to use past kit's, especially the stamps and ink spots, for other creative  projects.

Inspire - Create - Share- Blog Hop

Red White and Blue is the theme for this month's blog.  We are in July and the 4th of July is a big event, but I decided to do a card  that will cover many different events this month.  Hope you enjoy visiting all the blogs on this hop.

I used two stamp sets for this card.  One is the new stamp set 'Sea Street" (wood #133985 / clear #133988) and the other is a carry over from the Spring catalog 'Just Sayin' (wood # 133200 / clear # 133203), which I die cut, using the Big Shot.  For the water, I used the tearing technique and stamped on the middle and bottom layers.  The octopus was  stamped on the same color card stock used for the waves and so it made it easy to cut around the octopus and add it to the ocean scene.  If you wish to order online, please click HERE to shop.

I want to let you know 'Paper Pumpkin' is a popular kit that you can have sent to your home each month, and have a surprise project to work on in a short period of time.  All you need  is your own adhesive and everything else is supplied in the box!  You will always get a stamp and an ink spot, which can be added to your collection for future projects.  Click here to learn more and give it a trial month for a small fee. I really hope you check into this fun kit.

By clicking on the button below 'Inspire-Create & Share', you can visit 'Darla and Sister's' blog and see their  inspiring creations.

Happy 4th of July!!  This picture is from the Paper Pumpkin June kit!
Heart to You,
Olivia Studley
