Here are more things I made using the ideas that I got from the SBStampers Spring Fling Event. I got so many ideas from those talented women... I think I'm set for a while!
The box and the flowers were made using Stampin' Up! dies. It didn't take very long at all.
This card is made using the 5 petal punch and the Top Note die. I also used the new Stampin' Up! texture plates.
I have lots more ideas churning!

Hello Kitty Purse

I made a Hello Kitty purse using the instructions I got from the SBStampers' Spring Fling Event. It kind of creases when I have it latched, but I think overall it came out okay.
Close-up of the ribbon I used. I got the ribbon from Joanns.
And I used a Build-a-Brad from Stampin' Up! and cut out the Hello Kitty face from some scrap paper I had.
I used the Hello Kitty Sizzlit.
The bag itself is made using Stampin' Up! DSP and card stock. And I used some Velcro that I got from Joanns.
I used different punches to attach the clasp and the handles, but I think they worked out fine. I also used my new Eyelet boarder punch that I got from Stampin' Up!
I think I just have to make a few more to get the hang of it and work out the kinks.

Samples - part 1

Here are some of the samples that I took pictures of at the SBStampers' Spring Fling Event I went to last weekend. A lot of the cards are using new products - embellishments, tools, stamps. Some are from the new mini catalog that starts on April 1st. There's so many cute things, I already have an order ready from that catalog.

I was invited to attend the SBStampers' Spring Fling Event. They're a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators here in the Puget Sound area and I got to attend as the guest of Kristin. I met a bunch of really nice, fun and talented women there. They're so creative! I got a ton of great ideas and we made these purses and matching cards as the make-and-take.

If I'm brave, I might try to make another one of these... they pre-cut and scored pretty much everything for you, and there were women walking around helping us so we didn't mess up. Even with all that I made some mistakes and it took some time to make.
I'll post some pictures I took of their samples tomorrow. These are some seriously talented women!
