Stephanie and I at the end of the night

OK...so you've done all the other trendy birthday parties....WHAT NOW? I know!!! You can do a scrap attack birthday party!!! The set up for the birthday party I did in my craft room was for 8 young girls and we all made a little scrap book. I took a picture of the party group and printed out 8, one of each! They used that picture on the front cover of their book, and they loved it! I provided the basic book, decorative scissors, punches, all kinds of die cuts, ribbon, buttons, designer paper, sticky stuff and card stock (plus a bit more!!) Now I can no longer offer the parties in my studio as my husband and I are moving, but my daughter will still be in the Lehigh Valley, so we can bring the party to you in NJ or in PA. Call me for a fun and inexpensive way to celebrate!
Now this idea can actually be done for anyone celebrating any kind of milestone. Recipients LOVE getting a gift that shares remembrances of you all. So consider having this get together either with your loved one or with friends to prepare a wonderful gift. Anniversaries, special number birthdays, weddings, retirements, you name it - it can be documented and shared!! I have a ton of ideas, just call!!!

Here is a sample of one of the April Stamp-a-Stack cards from the April Girls' Night Out in my craft studio. We had so much fun...as always! I CASE-d from someone whose name is not attached to the file I saved, so if its you -let me know so I can give you credit. One of the many, many, many benefits of being a demonstrator is the ability to view card samples on our Stampin' Up! Demonstrator website. My sisters in stamping are very talented, and I thank them for sharing such beautiful work! Enjoy!

So this is Stephanie at our booth at the St. Luke's Craft Show last fall. I sold more than anyone, however, it wasn't very busy since the show was in many diffeent classrooms, rather than a large area. So it was difficult to see everyone and get around. I think the parking may have been difficult, but I don't know for sure. We had fun getting ready...my girlfriends came out to help finsih up projects and then to set up. Stephanie and I had a fun time regardless! I think I 'll look for some other craft shows...especially now that Bob is retired...hahaha!

On May 31st my mother, Regina Forsythe, nee Cowie, known to everyone as Jeannie, lost her long and arduous battel with Alzheimer's. I was with her when she passed, thank the good Lord. I miss her. She was my greatest fan, no matter what I ever did. She was creative, kind, and always smiling. Everyone loved her....
This picture was when Stephanie, now 25, was about 4 years old, and my mother, Jeannie, was just 60. Stef and I were in the musical Oklahoma.

I love it when I teach the family about different card styles and then they run with it....This gem was created this past fall by my soon to be son-in-law. Stephanie will let him know if they need special cards and if they both can't get to the craft room...Ryan will do it. He is fab and we love him! So enjoy his creation!!
It's all Stampin' Up! with the exception of the lil leaves which were punched out with a random punch I have from somewhere!

This was such a fun card to make for Ryan's birthday. He and Stephanie met when they were little while camping, so camping is a great thing at our house! And it is also a great theme for cards as well! Unfortunately the colors didn't come out true to life but you get the gist of the card. I love making pop-ups...and really they are easier than you'd think. Try one!!!

I know, I know...corny!! But I love this little owl punch! This card is the other twin's birthday card. I always make them similar, yet different. I used some favorite retired DSP, since I love the colors. Quick and easy! Gotta love those punches man! Enjoy!

Now, WHOOOO doesn't like a cupcake? LOL I know...sick humor, but had to do it!!! This is a card I made for one of my granddaughters last year for her October birthday. I love this punch and I love the cupcake set. Will post more details later, but wanted to share this creation with you. Fun, fun, fun! And very simple and easy to make. Give it a try!
