Carousel Notes Tote

These are the 2 prizes I won. Patty made the clip with the note holder and the Carousel Purse was made by Lene’e Pearson. She also did a presentation and showed us how easy these purses are to make. I’m seeing another class……..

Patty also had some great tips for taking photos.  I am happy to say that I did get out the book for my camera (I’ve only had my camera for almost 2 years) and with what Patty mentioned I am using the macro  & portrait settings on my camera and getting much closer shots now.
I am truly thankful that because of my stampin’ buddy Lynne M. I was able to attend Patty’s meeting. She is awesome.  Her meeting was full of info about convention (crossing my fingers and toes hoping I will be attending), business tips, great projects and so much more. I know these meetings require a lot of prep time and I do appreciate all her hard work. 

Carousel Notes Card

OK, so I lied. This is the last make n take we did. We used the Carousel Notes, Afternoon Tea DSP, Chocolate Chip Poly Twill Ribbon, & the Live Your Dream stamp set all found in the Occasions Mini Catalog. Did you know that the brass template, Pick A Petal, found on page 187 coordinates perfect with the Carousel Note Cards. You can use the template to do the paper piercing. So you get perfect circles every time. I am really loving these. Just wish Stampin’ Up would extend the Occasions Mini Catalog for at least another month. Maybe if we all send SU a email asking them to they might consider it…….

Pop Up Card with Swing Greeting

This is the final project we did thanks to Jana Mays. She did the presentation for this card. We also saw this card made at the Regional Seminar in Oakland.
