Stampin' Retreat Pictures

DSCN4578Hi Everyone! Oh what fun we had last weekend!!! My upline Dawn Griffith invited us to her home for a weekend retreat. We laughed, stamped and ate our way through the weekend. What was extra special for me was that Davette one of my Designer Paper Dolls (pictured above with me) got to attend as well!

Below: Stacey, THE Dawn Griffith!, Davette photo bombing, Bonnie. These were the awesome women at the retreat. It was great to meet Stacey and Bonnie and I left the weekend with 2 new friends!


Dawn had pillow gifts and prize patrols for us! Below are some of our goodies.
Saturday night out for dinner! By this time we had plenty of inside jokes to keep us giggling and Dawn's hubby Richard shaking his head.

RetreatdinnerDuring the retreat, we shared shoebox swaps with each other, had a stamping "chopped" challenge - a certain number of supplies and challenged to make a card, got to make a Blendabilities chart and a video!

As you all know {big smile}, I so enjoy the friendships I've made being part of the Stampin' UP! family. If you think we have're right!

Tag for Drink Cup - Pillow Gift!

DrinkglasspillowHi Everyone! At my stampin' retreat last weekend, I made my fellow stampers this pillow gift. A pillow gift is a name for a little treat you leave someone each day on their bed. A fun surprize to look forward to! I found the cups at our local Dollar Tree. And they coordinated perfectly with my upline's (Dawn Griffith) decor!

I think it shows how tags don't have to be complicated to be cute! I'll share more retreat photos tomorrow.

Attendees' names were printed on Whisper White card stock then punched out.

Team Mini Swap Cards - Anything Goes!

DSCN4506Hi Everyone! The Designer Paper Dolls mini swap cards for August are so great! Theme was a mini card with at least 3 layers and whatever you wanted to make.

Joni's swap card - Welcome Joni! She's the newest Designer Paper Doll! She made this last blast of summer card. So cute! Bright colors and a pop up cloud! The Circle Framelits made layering the elements a summer breeze.

DSCN4511Next is Davette's. She made a very clever closure. If you look closely at the bottom, she used the Scallop Topper Tag punch and a slot to close the card. Great idea! and I like the subtle woodgrain stamp background on the tags.

DSCN4512Summer's swap is seriously awesome! She used the exclusive Paper Pumpkin Kit stamps to create this great, masculine card. Love the Mustache Framelit die accent!

DSCN4513Linda's swap card uses the new Flower Frenzy Bigz Die. We all got right away she was going for a sunflower look! I'm a sucker for those Antique Brads too!

DSCN4509Lisa's card was all about using up scraps! How clever to let the Designer Paper do all the work and a few Rhinestone blings set off the flowers!


Come swap with us next month! I welcome stampers from all over the country to join my team, the Desinger Paper Dolls! We have an active Facebook Group, I occationally have team challenges with prizes, and of course the everyday discount on Stampin' UP! goodies and the business opportunity.
