Star Trek Birthday Card Video

Have you ever needed to make a birthday card for a Trekkie?  Even in the 24th century it’s Stampin’ Up! to the rescue.  Check out this cute video spoof of Star Trek the Next Generation (ie. Card Trek).

Handmade is ALWAYS better than store bought.  I can’t wait to make one of these birthday cards for my husband’s Trekkie boss.

Are you a Trekkie?  Do you live with one?  What do you think of this Star Trek Birthday Card?  I would love to know.  Leave a comment below.

Stampin’ Up! Leadership 2013 Swaps

Remember  the swap I made  for Stampin’ Up!’s 2013 Leadership Conference?

Well . . . it was a lot of work to make them.  But sooooo worth it!  Look at all the wonderful goodies I got in return 🙂

Stampin' Up! Leadership 2012 Swaps


My only regret is that I didn’t make more so that I would have had more to trade.  It was so much fun!  Like being a kid again.

Do you like to swap (make multiples of one card and trade them for all different cards)?  If I organized a swap, how many cards would you want to trade?  Five? Ten?  Let me know in the comment section below.

Dude, You’re Welcome!

Oh My Goodness!  Stampin’ Up! has DONE it!!  This stamp set is just for men!  Although, don’t think that’s gonna’ stop me from ordering and using it 🙂  Can’t wait to get my hands on this great set!!

Need to order one for your man 🙂

Leadership Swaps are DONE!! :-)

Yippee!!  My Leadership Swaps are COMPLETE!

Swaps are one of my favorite parts of Stampin’ Up! events.  I created these cute little St. Patrick’s Day Leprechaun feet for Leadership 2013.  Can’t wait to trade them!!!

Leadership Swaps

I’m thinking about doing this as one of my February Card Buffet choices. Leave a comment below and let me know what you think 🙂

Leadership Swap Card

My Leprechauns are Looking Better Than Notre Dame’s

I’m sitting here “watching” the BCS Championship game between Alabama and Notre Dame, and working on swaps for Stampin’ Up!’s Leadership Conference.

Translation . . . I am listening to the Fighting Irish get STOMPED while I tie teeny tiny bows for little leprechaun shoes 🙂

Can’t wait to show you my creation.  Hint: If you want a small preview, check out the elf shoes from this post
