The prize table...and this is only about 3/4 of the gifts! We had over 50 prizes for our attendees! Many, many thanks to all of our super generous sponsors!! (You can check out the list on the Stamp NE blog) We love you guys!!
Our full class on Saturday morning...notice how everyone is paying very close attention to what Lauren is saying...She's just about to reveal that Papertreyink gave EVERYONE in the class a FREE stamp set! The class went wild when they heard the news!
These fabulous girls, Jodi and Ann, are both from Long Island! They made the drive up from to NH for our event and we couldn't have been happier! Being from Long Island, I was super excited to meet them and they are both about as hysterical as people can be...Far too much fun! They're both also amazing card makers...check out their blogs!
This is at the end of our event and I think it's such a cute picture of Molly and Joanne... just had to share! Poor Molly was just getting over pneumonia...what a trooper to make it out to the event! And Joanne taught a fantastic class as well as did a tremendous amount of work planning the event!I've said it before but it bears repeating...we had a blast! LOL! We're already working on planning our next event, just trying to determine where it will be. Feel free to drop me a note if you'd like to see a Stamping Around event hosted in your city... :-) Tomorrow, I'll share our beautiful projects we created in our classes!!

These cards took mere minutes to create since the cardstock was already cut for me but even if I had to cut my own cardstock these are still very simple cards that could be easily recreated for any occasion! Enjoy! PS - Forgive the weirdness of my blog...I'm having some spacing issues this week, will try to get it fixed. Am hoping to be ready to unveil a brand new design in the coming weeks...Stay tuned...And don't forget to check in at the SNR site for their two week Spring Fling Event!!

This next video demonstrates a very quick and simple technique; adding color with an ink pad and sponge along with a stamped image.
Next, I'll demonstrate one of my favorite chipboard covering options...using rubons! It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of rubons and combining them with my second love, chipboard, is a perfect marriage. :-)
Now we move onto my last video, which is showing three other options for covering chipboard, using embossing power, glassy glaze, and glitter.
That's it for the videos...Now for my project!! Our wedding anniversary is on January 9th...just a few weeks after Christmas so there's typically a lack of funds in our household come early January. :-) That being the case again this year I wondered what I could do for my husband to celebrate our 10th anniversary. I decided to create a mini album for him to have on his desk. Each page of the album included a picture from each year we've been married along with a few lines of text on the highlights from that particular year. I've used chipboard on almost every page (hey, the album was made out of chipboard!!), mostly covering the chipboard with patterned paper and using rubons. The good news it that my husband was so happy with the album...he was teary (you know you've done a good job when they get teary!). One day I'll share the hysterics of trying to create this in secret with him sitting next door. It made for some comical moments! Please click on any of the pictures to enlarge them.
Thanks for hanging in there with today's long post. I had a wonderful time creating the videos for SNR. Be sure to head on over to see all the fantastic things going on at their site..Anne has set up an amazing faith-based site and magazine for scrapbookers and card-makers who have a desire to integrate their creativity and faith at A Faith Perspective.
Have a wonderful Friday!

All of the products used to make my KISS card are from Stampin' Up! and I hope my SIL likes it! She should be happy that she's finally receiveing her Christmas present just in time for St. Patty's Day! LOL!
