A convention make and take!

While the top is a picture of us doing Convention Make and Takes, we actually weren't working on THIS piece....I grabbed Stephanie's since hers came out better! LOL Thank goodness there are two of us! This bookmark is made using new ribbon, new paper, new chipboard frames and new hardware! Totally love it! Thanks Stampin Up!

Bob's Fathers Day Card from Stephanie

Just wanted to show a quick pic of the card Steph made for my Bob on Father's Day...It came out cute - CASE'd from SCS or Yahoo Group of "Stampin With Beate"...

This was made at our Girl's Night Out which we have every las Friday of the month. Stephanie was making away at gifts and cards....this one is for ....guess? YUP! Wilson! And its his first birthday. Stef has a party to go to to celebrate and even though it said no gifts, she wanted a lil somethin' - and so she made a photo album and matching card...looks better IRL, but the pic is cute too!

A Peek into the Studio

These are just a few things that Stef made that I have hanging in the studio...we just put up the coffee pic using an older coffee SU set...cannot EVAH get rid of those bad boys!! LOL Stephanie did the baby onsie and the shorts too! My shorts were snow flakes and are under her "wanted" shorts!! Just wanted to share...I have a close up of the coffee pic SOMEWHERE on the computer - but I must have saved it to a weird place....typical! So enjoy!

EDITED: found the close-up!!!

Another beauty!

I did not post this before because of my blurry issue....but it is too pretty not to show you! We have been on a scallop thing lately....but it is soooo cool! One more time - the proud mama! I believe that this card was inspired by a Karen Barber card...an INK-y sister

My card from Steph

Stephanie made me this card - all by herself! She knows I love this set...and that I love watercolor - so she did it!! I thought she did a great job with the colors and everything! Unfortunately, I think I am getting some blurry pics these days....sorry! Don't know WHAT I am doing wrong...But anyway -I love this card!

For Her step-mother on Mother's Day

I think Steph took a much better shot of this card so I just posted this pic again....I was sure you all would not mind!! Its so beautiful! LOVE IT! That's my baby!

Using the rub-ons from the Sale-a-bration event - she decorated this lovely little flower pot from Michaels. She put gardening gloves in there, some seed pots, and four packs of seeds. I thought it came out great! Her step-mother is very classy and loves hand crafted things...she is crafty herself - I hope she loved it! I haven't heard yet from Steph what her reaction was...don't you think hand made is better than store bought any way?

Altering of a design...

So this is Stephanie's version of a card I posted before. She wanted to make a card for her clinical instructor for Nursing III for her and all her classmates in their clinical class. She made it a 5 X 5 so there was more room for peeps to sign it....WAY TO B STEPH!! LOL

OMG!! Look at this beauty!!!

Isn't this beautiful! Stephanie CASE'd a card and tweaked it here...using the set I love...This was her mother's day card for her Step-mother. The colors are so cool! I will need to find out what the recipe is so I can post - these are using current SU products....and I had to brag a bit....if I can get the pictures downloaded - she has some more fab-u cards for me to post....just not enough time in a day, man!!! KWIM?

we HAVE to call this WORK

These were 3 cards Stef made on the last visit during Easter. The Tart n Tangy card was altered but CASE-d from Lyn Puliafico (an INKredible sista). This was one of my favorites in a swap I did as well - but I CASE-d exactly - see the home page for mine!

The next picture is from when Stef was actually working on Aliviah's box while we were down in the stampin' studio. Isn't she cute? We LOVE to play down there! Don't you wanna come over, too?!?!?! LOL

Coaster Box

Steph made a coaster box which she copied from one my "up there, up-line" Tina Rosenkrans gave me as a thank you gift at one of our Fall Fest events. (I just LOVE that chick!) The letter A is embossed with clear after being colored with (I think) Purely Pomegranate ink...and she used the cutie pie DSP and wild wasabi ribbon. The whole box is held together with ribbon through the holes created by the magnificent Crop-a-dile. The photo corner and the lil heart are also chipboard, covered with DSP and sanded around the edges...Stephanie filled the basket with lil hair ties and WALLAH! Aliviah's present was created!
