Making Cupcakes - and Tags with My Digital Studio

I've been a My Digital Studio monster lately! Maureen and I made these cute tags for her sports-themed cupcakes as an entry to the Cub Scouts cake auction. Don't you think they will get a higher price for the ribbons and tags? We do!

Another Snow Day!

We did it! 13 Valentines are ready to go for preschool. Only took 2 hours...ugh! Well, it's another snow day here in Leawood...which means that I don't have to feel bad that David and I didn't get to his Valentines yesterday...we are doing them today. I'll take pics as we create them this morning. I made a cute little insert for the cards...and I'm attaching it to this post so you can check it out!

Have I mentioned how much I love My Digital Studio recently? I created this in the time it took David to brush his teeth this won't talk about how it takes him 25 minutes to do that get the idea! You can buy MDS here! Make sure I'm selected as your demo to get preferred pricing!!

Snow Day Stampin!

Here is Julie Coker and her daughter, Emma's lovely My Digital Studio thank you notes - aren't they sweet? Love the fill in the blank design!!

Here is Laura, my downline demo, stampin' it up in her craft room - her daughter and grandson are snowed in with her in OP! Lucky duck!

Snow Day Challenge!

Okay everyone - today is a snow day in our school district so I've got a little boy here with plenty of time on his hands. I think we will make his Valentines for school today. I'll post a picture of our progress. Wish us luck!

As an incentive to get your creative juices flowing today, anyone who sends me a picture of either themselves or their kids crafting something today (using at least one Stampin' Up! product) will get a certificate for $5 off their next merchandise order. Local gals, get the snow in the background if you can so that we can populate the blog with pictures of winter - who knows when we'll get our next snowstorm, right? The deadline for submissions is 8pm, central time. Can't wait to see if people are crafting!!

Sew Suite is SO SWEET!

What do you think about this cute little button jar? Lifted the idea from our Occasions Mini Catalog and love it! What a great way to store our new buttons. I'm trying to decide if I want to do this project at our Stamp Camp on Saturday instead of another Valentine's Day 3-D project I had in mind. I'll post it tomorrow and then we'll see...

Today is the last day to sign up for Stamp Camp - next Saturday from 10am to 1pm. 10 projects for $20. Lots of snacks and fun.

Valentine Matchbox

This next idea is a simple and cute one for class valentines (or office valentines). We will be making this at our Stamp Camp as well! I found dark chocolate Bliss candies to put inside (matchbox fits four nicely). And the wrapper is Poppy Parade in color - hooray!

Congrats to my downline, Laura, as she becomes a grandma for a second time today - and welcome baby Berkley George!!

On another note, I will be headed to La Bodega tonight for some much needed time with the MOPS Steering group - and I'm definitely already hungry having prepared dinner and cleaned up for the guys. Mmmmm...

Springtime Smiles Card & Insert

Here is a cute card that we will be making for our Stamp Camp on January 15th as well...I'm also going to swap it for the demo shoebox swap at Shelley May's house on January 8th. What do you think of the insert? I thought it was fun to change things up a bit. I'll be papercrafting all afternoon after the Chiefs game ends. On tap: a Valentine's Day 3D item and a cute card to match, prepping David's Valentines for school so that he can assemble them and cutting the materials for all of the cards for the shoebox swap.

Make sure to check out my Downline Member's Blogs..I've started a new list on the left hand side of the blog. If you are a downline member and you would like your site listed, just shoot me a note.
