---------------------

Mixed bunch flowers 2When I was making my Stampin' Up! Leadership Swap cards last January, I came across a tip that helped speed up my card making process AND made it easier too!!!!

FIRST: I stamped a sheet of flower centers from the Mixed Bunch set and then placed it on my mat and poked a hole in the center of each one with my paper piercer:

Mixed bunch holes

And then I punched out each flower center with the circle punch:

Mixed bunch punch

and then added the Designer Printed brads:

Mixed bunch centers
That was so much faster than punching them all out and then poking the holes in each little circle .... it may not seem like a huge time saving tip, but it was so much less frustrating to do it this way when stamping a lot of swaps!

Mixed bunch flowers

I love the Mixed Bunch set.. I especially love that I can punch out the stamped flowers with the matching Blossom Punch.. whohoo!

Dresden Designs Big Shot Die from Stampin' Up!

125597 dresden die

I know.. at first glance you may be thinking... what do I do with this new Dresden Designs Die from Stampin' Up!? (haven't seen it yet? check out page 12 of the Occasions mini catalog)  Well, it's meant to die cut fabric (and you know, when it's Stampin' Up! fabric you have a dynomite duo!)... it cuts out 2 different sized "petals".  The Dresden Plate quilt pattern was one of the most popular quilts made in the 1920's and 1930's.  It was most often used with the floral prints of the period, so sometimes it goes by the name of Grandmother's Sunburst, Dahlia, or Sunflower.

Check out these WONDERFUL projects using the Stampin' Up! Dresden Designs die .. these were on display at the Stampin' Up! Leadership conference in San Antonio last month.

Tower of the Americas, San Antonio, TX

 

Tower of america

On our visit to San Antonio for the Stampin' Up! Leadership Conference, I wanted to go up the 750 foot tall Tower of the Americas.  Gloria and I went to the top in the super fast elevator and enjoyed taking photos of the surrounding area. What a fun experience!

 

I know one thing is for sure... San Antonio is VERY FLAT...
