Convention Make'N Takes

Good Evening All!

I decided to take a short break and get these long-overdue pictures posted on my blog.  I have been keeping very busy the last couple of weeks getting ready for workshops, card classes, shoebox swap, out-of-state visitors coming in (yah, that means Spring cleaning again!), etc.  My grand-daughter has been here just about every day, so I decided this week to turn her into a Stampin' Up! demonstrator.  Wait until you see her projects she completed for an upcoming Definitely Decorative Workshop I have scheduled next week.  We worked on a few projects together, but then I told her today she was on her own with my leftover supplies.  She was in 7th heaven playing with the materials I gave her.  Anyway, more on that in my next post.

Today, I wanted to show you my Make'N Takes from Convention.  I know, there have been tons of pictures out there probably -- but these are mine, with my interpretations and boo-boos.  And you just know, all boo-boos end up being an "inspiration."  There are no "mistakes" when we stamp, just challenges to alter a CASE. 

This is a card that holds "mini cards," and uses the "Just Believe" stamp set.  It is so darn cute in person.

Here it is again, opened and showing the small cellophane bag with mini note cards (another stamp in the "Just Believe" set).  What a great little gift to give to someone.

And of course, here is my favorite using the "Just Believe" set again (so much you can do with this versatile stamp set).  We will be doing a version of this card at my card class Saturday.

This Thank You card uses the heart from the "Paisley Prints" stamp set and sentiment from "So Many Thanks" single stamp set (see below).

A cute little set of Thank You cards, using the "So Many Thanks" single stamp again.  The cards and envelopes fit in the envelope holder to give as a gift to someone special.

And finally, some more 3" x 3" note cards using the "Just Believe" stamps again.  This was also a favorite of mine from the Convention Make'N Takes.

Okay, it's time for me to go back to work.  I have to get my Studio cleaned so I can party tomorrow night at Ronda's Leadership Night event and be ready bright and early Saturday morning for my card class.  I can't wait for tomorrow night because this is the very first time I have ever participated in a Shoebox Swap.  I hope they like my Shoebox Swap card, because I know these ladies will have some gorgeous swap cards.

Happy stamping to everybody, and thank you all so much for leaving me comments when you visit.  I love hearing from all of you.



  1. How did you make the enevelope for the top card--"Just for you"?

  2. I've lost my make and takes. I know I came home with them, because I had a hard time packing everything and remember packing them. It just sucks, cause i really liked them this year.
