The birthday party, part 2

This is the bulletin board that each girl made. Very simple,but lots of fun! The one thing I forgot was to give the girls push pins! I had intended to give each girl 3 pins that they could adhere buttons to :)

We used chipboard backings from DSP packages (I tried thicker,but it becamedifficult to set the eyelets!).
Here are the instructions:
  1. cover chipboard with designer series paper
  2. die cut butterflies, or other decor of your choice
  3. cut 12x12 piece of thick cork board (purchased at M's with a coupon) into 4 6x6 pieces and adhere with sticky strip
  4. stamp letters and cut out,then adhere
  5. embellish as you please with glitter
  6. using Crop-A-Dile punch holes in the top, set jumbo eyelets and thread with ribbon for hanging

Emily's Mom talked with me the other day, and the party was a hit!! The birthday girl said "it was the best birthday party I have ever had, Mom!" :)

You don't want to wait to purchase this fabulous new software. All of the exclusive Stampin' Up! Colors are included, including In Colors from the past two years!! I have seen some amazing samples done using this software, and I cannot wait to get my hands on it!! :)

* Dozens of the most popular stamp sets along with Simply Scrappin' Kits, ribbons, brads, hardware, punches, embellishments and more! If you were to purchase all the stamp sets separately that are included in this software package, you would spend more than $1000, and that's just for the stamped images!

What can you do with My Digital Software?

* Obviously, it makes scrapbooking so simple and quick. Whether you want to use the pages as you design them on the screen or print them out and add your own embellishments and layers (Hybrid projects), this software will have you plowing through your back-logged photographs and turning them into works-of-art in no time.

* You can also design cards and other projects with MDS, as well as print out your own designer papers and embellishments to use on traditional projects.

* Since all the colors perfectly match Stampin' Up! colors, the possibilities are endless!

The program is very user-friendly and easy to use. Within minutes of installing the software on your home computer, you can be creating beautiful projects like the scrapbook page pictured above.

Watch this blog for even more project ideas! Plus, when you purchase from me, I will help you with anything you may wish to learn, or have trouble getting started with (I willl earn right along with you!)

The month of October, there is a special offer to purchase at half price!

Sweet Rewards Hostess promotion: As you know, our Sweet Rewards Hostess promotion is well under way. Hostesses who hold a $330 workshop can choose any item from the Holiday Mini for just $14.
