Here is a wonderful little project from January 2008, Palm Springs, California...Leadership Trip. This is an annual Stampin' Up! Training Event. It is smaller and more business focused than Regional Seminars and Convention. It is by far one of the highlights of my year...I thought I would make a newer version of this lantern they presented. Here is my creation...
Goodies Used: Raspberry Tart Designer Paper (Sneak-Peak 2009 Spring/Summer Catalog), Flower Fusion Too, Basics Brads, Flower Trio, 1" & 1/16" Circle Punches, Paper Trimmer (Cutter & Score Blades), Bone Folder, Crafters Tool Kit, Sticky Strip.
Here is the lantern they showed us how to make.
Roomies 2008: Sarah G., Me, & Paula C.
Posing and talking to Shelli Gardner, Co-founder of SU with Paula.
Sara & I, learning and updating our NEW SU Websites.
The crazy scramble of demonstrators taking pictures of the amazing displays of new product...

The palm trees and 90 degrees in JANUARY! So great...they had snow, cold and ice back in Missouri. Lucky girls where we!
I will post a step-by-step to make the Lantern tomorrow. So stay tuned. Have great day. Thanks for visiting. Diana

Have a wonderful Monday. Thought we should have something "springy" today. Thanks for checking it out. Diana
Do you ever feel like you want to make a card, but don't have a lot of time or are not feeling very "creative"? Well let me show you what a template can do for you. Here is a simple template.
Here are two cards with even the same stamp set...
Here is a detail of the first card. Used the uni-ball Signo White Gel Pen inside the word love. Used a gold brad and the Trio Flower Punch on both cards for a fun accent. I used Encore Gold Ink embossed with Gold Embossing Powder on both cards with Brushed Gold paper.
I hope you have a great day. Thanks for stopping by. Diana
Today was such a wonderful treat. A whole day scrapin' with my cousin Jessica. (She lives in Dallas and I only get to see her maybe once a year.) It was great to just hang out all day, pretty much just the two of us. (I was nervous of the weather, but I made it home with no ice or snow on the roads. We only ended the day with lots of rain and an inch or so of snow.) So here is the page for today, tonight...are mom and dad too cute or what?
Here is the Scrap Map for this week...
Goodies used: Love You Much Bundle (Love You Much Stamp Set, Candy Lane Designer Paper, Heart Trio Punch), Big Deal Alphabet, Textured Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip Papers, Pink Pirouette and Close to Cocoa Paper, Chocolate Chip Craft Ink, Pink Pirouette Striped Ribbon, Gold Embossing Powder, Encore Gold Ink.
Have a wonderful evening! Check back for more creations made with this great new stamp set! Thanks for stopping by. Diana
In the last few days we have had, snow, ice, rain, lightening, straight-line winds and freezing rain is on the way...due to weather issues...I may or may not be able to get the Saturday Scrap Challenge up today...so be safe and I will post as soon as possible. Thanks for stopping by...Have a GREAT day. Go scrap and stamp! Diana
Hope you like my Mini-Trio of Love You Much Cards. Are you loving this stamp set or what? And at 20% Off who wouldn't? Did some embossing. Not so sure you can see all the detail so there are some close-up shots too. I used all parts of the Bundle and few extras.
Here is a close-up of each card in the trio.
I used the VersaMarker inside the word and leaf for this one...cute? I also added and extra layer behind the punched small heart. Yes, cut free-hand. The punched little heart was just not quite big enough to cover the little flower in the stamped image.
Scallop Circle Punch and 1 1/4" Circle Punch with uni-ball Signo White Gel Pen. The center heart is cut out with Paper Snips and popped-up with a Stampin' Dimensional. I stamped the image three time and embossed Encore Gold Ink with Gold Embossing Powder and punched and cut to get the layers.
Other supplies and colors. Pretty in Pink, Close to Cocoa, Real Red, Chocolate Chip, and Brushed Gold Papers. Other Punches include Small and Large Ovals.
Hope you have time to stamp today...order your bundle soon! Thanks for stopping by. Happy Stamping. Diana
Enjoy this project and how-to pictures. Merry Christmas to you and yours. (This is another fun reason to join my team, this was one of the Make & Take Projects from our November get together.)
Hope the pictures help. I used 12 x12 paper cut down to 6 x 8, then make your handle from the scrap. I LOVE Craft ink as many of you know. This is Chocolate Chip paper with Chocolate Chip Craft Ink. I cut the little birds out of Designer Series paper. Ribbon is Riding Hood Red Taffeta. Land-O-Lakes is my favorite Cocoa. I have seen many cocoa holder cards but none fit my favorite, so I just had to come up with this solution. Add coffee and Bailey's instead of water and you have a real "grown-up" sweet treat.
May your day be sweet! Spread some smiles today. Diana
I have more creations for you with the new stamp set on preview and special now.
Is he too cute or what...a few years older now. Used Real Red, Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink and Whisper White.
Here is the detail of the Stamp, Embossed Real Red Craft Ink with Iridescent Ice Ebossing Powder and colored with Pretty in Pink Marker. Cut out the center heart and raised up with Stampin' Dimensional.
