How cute is this little guy?! I wanted to make a card of the bear only but when I ran the card stock through the Big Shot, I realized that he's just a little too small to be considered a "full card". I didn't want to abandon my idea so I got the bright idea to put a base layer down and adhere my "bear card" to it. Since you wouldn't be able to open the card if it were a full 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 (because of the pumpkin top), I cut the card stock down to 4 1/2 x 4. I stamped "Happy Halloween" on the inside of the card (the bear's belly).
Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes
Card stock: Creamy Caramel, Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Orange, Summer Sun, Ballet Blue, Certainly Celery
Accessories: Big Shot, 1 3/4" circle punch, Build-A-Bear Bigz Bear die, Build-A-Bear Originals Kooky Spooky die

I'm excited to bring you this sweet deal for hostesses September through November:
- Host a workshop totaling $250 or more and choose any one item* from the 2009 Holiday Mini Catalog for only $10! *Offer excludes hostess sets and My Digital Studio.
On October 1, when My Digital Studio is released to customers, this offer will become even sweeter:
- Host a workshop of at least $400 and get My Digital Studio for 50% off the retail price (retail price: $79.95; promotional price: $39.97)!
Things to Remember:
- This promotion applies to workshop orders and is intended to reward hostesses for the act of doing a workshop. Online orders are not eligible for this promotion.
- Hostesses who hold a workshop of $250 can choose any one item from the Holiday Mini catalog for just $10.
- Items include stamp sets, accessories, Sizzix dies, etc.
- This includes any products featured in the Holiday Mini Catalog, even if they are also shown in the Idea Book & Catalog (Movers and Shapers Die, Christmas Jingle Simply Scrappin', etc.)
- Items exclude Holiday Mini hostess sets and My Digital Studio.
- This promotion is not incremental. For example, a $500 workshop is not eligible for two $10 items, and an $800 workshop is not eligible for two copies of My Digital Studio at 50% off.
- After My Digital Studio is released to customers on October 1, hostesses who hold a $400 workshop will be eligible for both a $10 Holiday Mini item and 50% off My Digital Studio.
If you have not received a mini catalog from me but you would like to be able to "play", just send an email to StampinWithAngie@yahoo.com with your name, address and phone number. I will get a mini in the mail immediately and add you to my mailing list so that you can play again in the future.
*Discount applies to workshop, email & phone orders immediately; online orders placed from my Stampin' Up! website will receive a refund in the mail from me once your order has shipped.

I woke up before the alarm and was in such a good mood! I had in mind what I would do today and it was going to be a very productive day for me. I hopped in the shower then got dressed and started downstairs to chat with my hubby before he left for work.....then I remembered it! Umm, hello!.....it's Monday....workout day....in like, 30 minutes! No problem, I have plenty of time to change and get to the gym, so off I go. I'm warming up on the treadmill and one of the other trainers informs me that my trainer will not be there today......after I've worked up a slight sweat! Well, this can be a positive thing.....quick workout, get home, shower (again!), get dressed and get busy on my "productive" day!
I make my "to do" list for today and get to work.....1st on the list - my Stamp-A-Stack reminder invite. I finally get it finished after calling Demo Support for a problem then I send it out to my mailing list. One down, 50 to go. ;o) I go to my Meetup group to add my events to that calendar and can't find where it can be a "recurring" event.....fine, I'll just enter them individually. Then I see it......I put the wrong date on my S-a-S reminder that I sent out to my mailing list! GREAT!! Now I go back to the SU! site & send my mailing list a corrected invite with an apology for giving them the wrong date & having to send two messages back-to-back! Geeze! #2, and now #3 off the list.....day is looking a little better. :o)
I get a text from a friend, "Can you print off a form for me....I'm out of ink." Ummm, sure. I have to meet Brittany in town & can meet this afternoon. I'm then informed that she's NOT WORKING TODAY! Well hello, go buy ink & print out the form yourself!! Of course I don't learn this little tidbit until after I've printed the form (using up my ink!) and am heading out the door. She tells me she'll be there in a bit....she's in the shower!!! O-M-G!! What in the world did I just get "suckered" into?!
Because I messed up the date for my S-a-S, that frees up a LOT of time for me so that worked to my advantage. I've updated a group website that I "own", replied to some messages and completed tasks that were not on my list but definitely needed to be taken care of! My day is on the up-swing (don't read that out loud....I don't want anything "jinxing" me!)! Now to get a few projects photographed, complete some others and get my step-daughter's pictures onto a disc. I have a full plate for today but doggone it, I'm up for the challenge! ;oD
I had actually typed up some posts for y'all while I was out of town last week.....they didn't post (could ya tell?!). I'll fix those so that they'll post over the next few days & you can see what I was up to along with posting pictures from my quick trip to DC with my wonderful hubby! I hope you have a fantastic day and very few of "those" days! :o)

I couldn't resist giving this little girly skull a "grill" (isn't that what they call the silver accessories put in your mouth?) and a shimmery bow! I think Brittany is really going to get a kick out of this card since we have the same sense of humor. The inside of the card says, "YOU ROCK!"
The DSP I used on the front of the card is from the new "Cast A Spell" DSP and I just can't wait to use it on other things. The scallop circle is not a Sizzix Die.....it's a circle that I scalloped with my slit punch! That is so easy it should be illegal - LOL. All you do is cut a circle - cut a circle out of the inside of that circle, then punch "slits" all the way around the outside of your circle with the slit punch. If that is not clear, leave me a comment and I'll see if I can post a tutorial on how to do it.
Speaking of comments, leave me one telling me how you like this card - I would love to hear from you!

This is one of the stamp sets I received when I picked up my bag at Convention. Yes, I said "one of"....we got 4 sets and a wheel this year! I LOVE Convention! You could too and this month is the perfect time to join my team with the $85 Mini Starter Kit AND the welcome gift from me....1/2 the cost of the new "My Digital Studio" when it's released! That is an almost $200 value for only $85!
This card sentiment shows you exactly why I like to use the Stamp-a-ma-jig when stamping sentiments...notice the slight downhill slant. I had already adhered everything to the card before stamping the sentiment so I left it alone and I'm not really freaking out about it because I know Brittany will get a chuckle out of it not only being crooked but also because she knows I LOVE shoes!
I hope you enjoyed today's card and I would love to hear any comments you have!

Now, my question to you is…..when would you like to discuss joining my team? Seriously! With the Mini-Starter kit special ($85.00!!!!) going on right now (promotion ends August 31st), there is no better time! The great thing is that you decide how much or how little you work YOUR business! You could be someone that only wants to purchase the Standard Starter Kit because of the value (you pay $199 and get over $335 in product!). You could be a “Hobby Demo” that wants to receive the 30% discount on your first $150 order then the normal 20% discount as well as have the occasional purchase from your family and friends. You could be a “Hybrid Demo” that loves the 20% discount, getting together with family & friends for workshops and earning extra money to help out with the bills or to have some “fun money”. Finally, you could be a “Career Demo” that not only loves to receive the 20% discount, but also loves to teach classes, host workshops and receive recognition for your hard work. You look at this opportunity as a way to do what you love, share what you do and inspire others to join you in this journey.
You decide how active you want to be. Once you purchase the Starter Kit, you have no obligation to make another purchase and there is no penalty if you should decide to drop. The minimum to stay an active demonstrator is $300….quarterly! Yes, you read that right – only $300 every 3 months to stay active & keep getting that 20% discount!
Whether you want the discount on your personal purchases, you want to earn enough money to cover your quarterly minimums, you want a part-time job to get you out of the house or you’re looking for a full-time career where YOU’RE in charge, I would love to have you on my team!

The next project uses the squirrel image. He instantly reminded me of my dad! Not because my dad is "squirrely" or has a big, bushy tail but because my dad LOVES peanuts!! I used the Sizzix Matchbox Bigx XL Die to create a box and its cover. The "belly band" is also cut from a piece of DSP and the tag is one of the tags on the Matchbox Bigx XL Die. As you can see by the second view of this project, the matchbox is filled with peanuts! :o)
Ink: Basic Black & Going Grey Classic Ink

The stamp set I used is the new set "Great Grad". The base card stock is Basic Black and I made the invite a top fold card. I used Whisper White for both the outside layer and the inside sentiment layer. I stamped the "Graduate G" twice - once in Basic Black and once in Brilliant Blue. I punched out the Basic Black one with the 1 3/4" circle punch and sponged the edges with Brilliant Blue. I then punched the Brilliant Blue one with the 1 3/8" circle punch and adhered the blue 'G' over the black 'G'. I used Dimensionals to pop this up. The outside Whisper White layer was run through my Big Shot with the Texturz Flourish plate to give it something extra....it looks great! The ribbon is a royal blue organdy ribbon that I bought at a local craft store....it matches perfectly! What do you think?
Before they were punched.....
after they were punched and put together....
after the Dimensionals were added.
They look like "poker chips" in this view to me. LOL!
I hope the wait was worth it for y'all! I had fun putting everything together and look forward to working on my Mother's Day stuff tomorrow! Hopefully I'll have those cards completed and posted for you to see....at least I know my mom, mother-in-law and grandmother won't see them here! ;o)

I was able to get the card stock cut for Brittany's birthday/graduation invitations before I got a call and had to run out the door. Tomorrow I'm hoping to actually get one invitation put together, scanned and posted for you all to see! If I'm really lucky I'll get all of them done and in the mail...but I'm not holding my breath! ;o)
I hope you all have a great night....and remember to hug the ones you love....and be good to them!

All this within days of each other....She turns 18 on a Friday, we'll have her birthday/graduation party on Saturday and she graduates the following Tuesday! Where did my little preschooler go? I can't believe she'll be going off to college in a few short months....even if she is going to school nearby! ;o) I am SO very proud of Brittany and super excited about this next phase of her life...and mine!
Be sure to check back Sunday evening to see the invitation that will be sent out for Brittany's celebration and tell me what you think about it!

I know that Becky needs some pampering so I made a very simple gift bag to hold the bath gel, body scrub and lotion I got her and a faux alligator skin purse to hold the bath beads. Does the card look familiar? ;o) After I made the card that you can find in the post below this one, I thought, "That card screams BECKY! I need to make one for her!" so I did! LOL! I didn't want to post these projects until after I had given them to her....just in case she visited. I would hate for her to see her gift before she got it so I waited until after we visited tonight. ;o)

I embossed the vellum and cut it down to 5 1/4" x 4". I stamped "Happy Birthday" on the same size Whisper White card stock and then adhered the vellum to the card stock using mini glue dots on the two upper corners (you couldn't see them through the vellum either!). After I did that, I wanted just a tad bit of color so I gently went over the raised edges of the vellum with my pastels and a sponge dauber. It doesn't really show up, but I used blue to give the rose some color...I didn't want a lot so I barely did it.
I wanted something more than the sentiment on the inside of her card so I stamped the big rose on the inside bottom corner. I *really* liked the way this card turned out!
Now that you saw the card that I created especially for Melissa....this is the card she'll get in the mail! Why? Because when I gave Gary the card to sign I didn't specifically say, "This is Melissa's card." and he signed "Gary" instead of "Love, Dad". I didn't because I told him earlier that I was making cards to get into the mail along with Melissa's birthday card that we would send her and another that we'll give her when we take her to dinner Sunday night.....I thought he would remember that his daughter was the only birthday card I would be making. Yeah, I know what you're thinking...."Are you kidding?! He's a man! Men don't remember things like that!" Oy! It was late last night and I was not going to make another card to get in the mail this morning so I went to my box of cards and grabbed this one. I'll most likely re-make the one above to give her Sunday night because I liked it so much but this is the one she'll be getting in the mail. :o( Oh well, at least she'll be getting one!
He hid in Kehley's apartment - she came home from class early (she's attending UGA) and he almost got caught! He asked her if she had made her bed that morning. She went in to check and found a rose & a note. The note told her to go to a friend's apartment....where he had a rose & note waiting to give her. That note told her to go to another friend's apartment....where she had a rose & note waiting to give her. That note told her to go to the balcony....where she found another rose & note. That note told her to look down....where CJ was standing with a rose. She ran down to him and he proposed! How sweet is that?!!
I made the card below using UGA's colors since I have no idea what colors they will use (they're thinking next year) and I don't know what Kehley's favorite colors are. I used the Manhattan Flower Embossing Folder and cut out the dress. I saw this idea on a blog one day and knew I had to try it for myself! I really like how it turned out! What do you think?
