Clearance Rack…What a Terrible Thing to Waste!

Some products currently on the Clearance Rack…

How many times have I missed the opportunity to purchase a product on Stampin’ Up!’s Clearance Rack! I went scanning the other day and found the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper (144610) for $4.40! These are 12 sheets, 2 each of 6 double-sided designs which include potions, pumpkins, witches’ hats, cats, and eerie trees; this Halloween-themed Designer Series Paper has it all!

I’m actually using this for my upcoming Halloween Shadowbox Class, how great is that! I’ll post a picture of the finished product later on with details.

Ignore the mess in the background, OMG!

Take a look at the Clearance Rack every so often to check out the latest products added at fantastic prices!

 

Orlando Science Center…Success!

I was so thrilled to be invited to participate in the Makers in Residence program at The Hive in the Orlando Science Center. Four of my team members (Tina, JoAnn, Maria and Sofia) were able to join me in this great opportunity to meet new people and share what we love! My niece Reina, also got in the action demonstrating a Make & Take for a friendship bracelet she designed.

Below are a few pictures of today’s event.

Reina and me after setting up my Make and Take table, I was very busy with lots of guests wanting to make bookmarks.

JoAnn and Tina ready and waiting for guests

Maria and Sofia just finished setting up here, also waiting for the guests to arrive

They started trickling in and we started demonstrating!

Reina was busy with a guest who in addition to making the friendship bracelet also made a friendship ring

Young, young at heart, male and females all enjoyed making our Make and Takes!

Most of the guest fathers waited patiently for their turn

We were all kept busy!

We had a great time and the Science Center was very pleased with the Make and Takes that they have us on the top of the list for future similar events!

Who Doesn’t Love Dandelion Wishes?

As I child I used to love picking dandelions and blowing on them while making a wish. Now as an adult I love making cards with the Dandelion Wishes stamp set!

See below for product list and a Free PDF print out.

I recently held a Stamp-A-Stack class and one of the cards my stampers made was using the Dandelion Wishes stamp set along with the Love What You Do stamp set. Using the same materials and dimensions you can change the look of a card slightly or give it a whole new look. Here are the samples of the cards they made with two different color cardstock. What I love about this card is that you can use any color and it will look great.

Vellum Cardstock Magic & Free PDF

Did you know that when you scratch Vellum Cardstock (101856) it turns white in addition to puffing up that area? Using this technique will give your projects and cards a very beautiful and unique look. I taught my stampers this technique during my recent technique class and they made 2 beautiful cards.

You can download a Free PDF of the Lilypad Lake Crane card below.

With the stylus, you can lightly scratch the back side of the stamped image. Doing this will raise/puff up that area while turning the vellum cardstock white.

You can leave the image as is when it’s done or color it in with Stampin’ Blends or Stampin’ Write Markers.

  White to Colored In

Family Fun and So Much More!

It’s Been A Busy Week!

My sister and brother-in-law flew in from Puerto Rico on Friday morning. My father missed the flight but was able to reschedule for a later flight and arrived early afternoon. My three sisters and I were able to enjoy our father’s company all day on Friday. On Saturday after my Oviedo class, I rushed home to greet 25 of my close family members to spend time with our family patriarch. My father Angel Luis Figueroa shared many family stories with the younger generation. There was one particular story that neither of my sisters nor I ever heard and I will share at a later time. On Sunday, just the adults celebrated my youngest sister’s birthday. Lots of family and lots of fun!

Brenda, Yolanda, Angel (Dad), Awilda & Me just goofing off downtown Winter Park.
