Touch of Kindness


This card features the Touch of Kindness set from the Summer mini catalog along with a couple of the latest products from the new Idea Book & Catalog.  The Wild Wasabi card base was embossed using the stripes folder for the Big Shot, and the background paper is from the Just Add Cake Designer Series Paper pack.  The images were colored using classic ink pads with blender pens.

This is a card that we made in our hotel room with an exclusive stamp that was available with the Convention theme!  We loved the saying, "Don't go through life, grow through life." - Eric Butterworth
We'll most likely be sharing other pictures from our wonderful Convention 2011 experience!

Summer Mini Album



While we were in Salt Lake City in early July for the 2011 Stampin' Up! Convention, we had the priveledge of attending a mini album class, designed by our great friend and fellow demonstrator, Wendy Knowles.  We used the Playful Polka Dots Simply Scrappin' Kit.  We're hosting a class on Sunday, 8/6. Please e-mail if you're interested in attending the class or purchasing a kit.

Introducing the 2011-12 Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog!


We happily welcome back the Bring on the Cake stamp set to the 2011-12 IB&C!  It was featured in the Occasions mini catalog earlier in the year, and it was a customer favorite, so we are glad that it is once again available for all of you who didn't have the opportunity to get it!  This is a telescope card that was inspired by an idea from fellow demonstrator Dawn Olchefske.  The card is made from a variety of circle die cuts from the Big Shot, as well as different punches, including Build-a-Cupcake.  We hope you are as thrilled with the new products as we are!  If you would like to request a catalog or have any questions, please e-mail us at smjlstrehlow@cox.net  

Happy Birthday to Us!

The Stampin' Siblings both celebrated birthdays this week, Scot on 6/12, and Kira today, 6/16, so here's a card for the occasion!...
