Answers to your Questions.

For all who are asking where I got the Mini Clip boards for the post below...I found them at AC Moore's Dollar bins. They have 4 per package...but I got them quite awhile I hope they still have them if you are looking.
Now How I covered them...I inked the back and sides first. Then cut the first layer to fit in all 4 sides then Used Stampin UP's 3/16 corner rounder on all 4 corners. Then Layered and embellished as I saw fit. It was that easy!

A Huge Shoutout!

Welcome to the newly redone Blog , it's a three column. One side dedicated to Stampin UP, the middle for pics and such and the right to my blogging world. Up late at night making it with the help of Rachel a blogging sister. Such a talented stamper, making her cards with things from around the house, so beautiful, visit her blog and check them out. She's also very talented with the puter.
Now thanks for the awards from my fellow sisters Rachel and Carol visit their blogs, Such inspiration's to me. Also one of my sisters Janette is giving blog candy away for her first year of blogging, she should be receiving it, for a truly GREAT BLOG, so pop by her blog and wish her a Happy Blog Birthday. Tell her Sam sent you.
OK finally...NO the painting is not done, but I did get away to play with the new Bella Rose Designer paper, you will be able to order this Aug 11. I truly love the new in colors. You will see Red Riding Hood, Pink Pirouette , and Kiwi Kiss on the pic with this post. The new pink is truly a beautiful pink. These mini clip boards were easy to cover and I really didn't stamp anything, just sponged the back with ink. See you all soon.

Hi, have some great pictures to show everyone. Some are of the new Stampin UP stuff with a card we made but designed by Faith Clark, I made her a watermark to protect her creativity, some are of the Swallow Tail butterflies my friend and Upline Melissa got my family started on. They are starting to hatch and very beautiful.

This weekend I attended a Reaching for the Stars Red Carpet Gala, this was a special treat I won from my group of local Demos, Melissa Ellis and Faith Clark are matriarchs of this group. We are all 1st 2nd 3rd...downlines of these two ladies and they are the best. They put together an incentive plan for the group, of sales, workshops, meetings, online learning and more. We would get a star for each thing we did. The top 15 got to go automatically and 5 names were drawn and I won one of those spots. We were treated to our own glass of our choice and they filled it up with our choice of beverage;) a beautiful hand made bracelet, and the most scrumptious dinner. Then were to make 2 project designed by Melissa and Faith and all the give much fun!!! Wish everyone could have a GREAT! upline like I do.

Well back to painting!!!

Hi Everyone sorry I have not posted any cards lately. I am painting what feels like my whole house in prep for some events I'm having soon and I'm redoing a bathroom. To my sisters if your in the area come... they will be free for you. Only cause most of you need to fly over the pond. Ha that would be an expensive Stampin Up Event. Seriously I'll get to posting some cards soon. Love you All. SAM
