Make a Card Monday!

Hello Stampers!  A second post for today!!!  It's Make a Card Monday so I couldn't wait to post my video for this week!  

Here is the card that we will be making this week:

Celebrate You Thinlits, Inkin With Dik

Can you tell that I LOVE the Picture Perfect Party designer series paper???  This was a pretty fast and simple card.  I needed that today!  After being gone for four days, I have a list a million miles long to do today!  Who can relate???

So, without further ado, here is the video:

 

I'm taking a poll to see if you prefer the card with the flower or with out the flower!  So when you are finished watching, leave me a comment and let me know which you prefer!  That will also enter you into the drawing for a free card!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Stamp-a-versary to me!!

Hello Stampers!  It's my stamp-a-versary!  That's right!  I became a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator 14 years ago today!!!  Hands down the best decision I ever made!

I have made soooo many new friends over the 14 years, I have built a fabulous team that are like my family, and I have traveled all over the world!  So special!  And the best thing about it, is that anybody can do this too!  

And how special is it that on my stamp-a-versary that I was traveling home from a stamping event!  It was a a super event and we all had such a good time!  I took pages and pages of notes and plan to start implementing some changes in the upcoming weeks to my business!  I even got to do a presentation!!

Inkin With Dink

The first change that I'm going to be making has to do with my blog!  I'm going to commit to blogging every day for a year, starting today!  It won't be an earth shattering post every day.  Some days may be showing swaps I received, a card I got in the mail, a video that Stampin' Up! put out, etc.  And every morning I am going to do a drawing to give away a hand stamped card!  All you have to do to enter is leave me a comment on my blog!  You can even say something like "Hi Dina!"  I just want to know you are there!  

So if you are reading this, don't just read it and move on, let me know you are here and if I draw your name you will be receiving a card in the mail from me!  And who doesn't like to get cards in the mail???

I will be telling about more changes coming up, so don't go too far away!  Thanks for stopping by!

Pizza Box gifts

Hello Stampers!  As you know, I'm currently at a stamping Leadership event in Michigan.  And one thing that we tend to do as stampers, is to make gifts for our roommates when we attend these events.  I am rooming with a gal named Renee, who I actually met on the Thailand incentive trip last year.  I'm so excited to get to spend time with her and pick her brain about her business!

Anyway, I did make her and my friend Ronda gifts.  And of course, I had to make one for myself!!!

IMG_0488I'm so excited that the mini pizza boxes have been carried over from the Holiday catalog!  They are so fun to play with!

And here is the inside:

IMG_0489 of course it has to have chocolate!!!

For the apron, I used the Apron Builder Framelits.  I have to say, the Apron of Love bundle is my absolute FAVORITE in the Occasions catalog!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Celebrate You thinlits card

Hello Stampers!  Well, today I'm off to Michigan for a Stamping Leadership event.  The only part I'm not excited about, is how cold it is supposed to be there!  And they have several inches of snow on the ground!  Oh well!  The things I will go through to get to stamp with some fabulous people!

I am hoping to post some photos and updates over on my Inkin With Dink Stampers Facebook page while I am away.  If you aren't already a member, join the page and you can keep up with my trip!  

One thing that we will be doing, is swapping!  Of course we  will be!  We love to make cards and trade them with others!  Here is one of the swap cards that I am taking:

  Amazing You stamp set, Celebrate You Thinlits, Inkin With Dink I used the Watercolor Wash background stamp for the background.  The flower is stamped with the Amazing You Sale-a-bration stamp set and the celebrate you is cut out using the Celebrate You thinlits which is also a Sale-a-bration item!  

Thanks for stopping by, and don't forget to join my Inkin With Dink Stampers Facebook group!

Valentine sampler

Hello Stampers!  My team recently decided that we were going to start swapping 2 X 2's in addition to our monthly cards.  What is a 2 X 2 you ask?  It is simply a 2" X 2" square that you decorate according to set guidelines such as colors and themes.  Our theme for our January swap was Valentine's and the colors needed to be Real Red, Pink Pirouette, and White.  Then we can take our squares that we receive and do whatever we want with them!  Some are making these samplers, some are using them on cards, etc.  Here is the sampler that I created with mine:

Valentine sampler, Inkin With Dink

I simply mounted them on a 12 X 12 sheet of Whisper White cardstock with an 8 1/2" X 11" piece of Pink Pirouette cardstock on top.  

Here are who made each square starting on the top row:

Top - Sheila, Debbie N., Pat V., Pat B.

2nd - I added the Bloomin' Heart thinlit, Lynn, Deb G.

3rd - Linda, Debbie H.

4th - Diane, Ann, mine

5th - Joan, Julie, Kathy, Sandy

Some of the products that were used are retired, so if you see something old, that is why.

Thanks for stopping by!  If you make your own sampler, I'd love to see it!

Picture Perfect Party birthday cards

Hello Stampers!  I saw the cutest card on Facebook over the weekend, and I knew I had to recreate the card and see if I could make some similar cards!  

The sample that I saw was made by Selene and was actually a card for her new team members.  I decide to remake it and make it a birthday card.  Here is what I made:
