Glittern Gals Swaps

Here's Cole, age 6months. (No he is not part of the swap, he's a keeper!)He came to stay last week while I was getting ready for my stamp club and sideline meeting. Even though he was sick with a cough, I was able to get lots of smiles from him. He has the biggest brightest eyes and is a real sweetheart! Love ya, Cole!
Karen is a brand new demonstrator and member of our group. Here she used the Crystal effect and re-inkers technique to make this stunning butterfly.
I don't know hoo did this card. Maybe Vicki?
This is by Delia. She used the new in color, Pool Party, and the Established Elegance set. She also used the Designer Frames embossing folder. The frame stamp fit it perfectly!
Luana took a trip to Napa with her lovely grapes.
Collete got "flirty" with this outstanding card!
Terry went for simple but elegant with Fabulous Florets.
Chris had an Elebration with this card! hahaha
I went vintage for my BFF
Karen brought this stunning sample to share with us!
I am a member of a great group of stampers who all share the same upline, sideline, and downlines. We have been together over eight years and when our upline retired from SU, we banded together and continued our great group. We met yesterday for our first planning meeting for our annual Customer Appreciation Open House which will be on Sept. 10th at Windsor Hills in Conroe, TX. If you live in the area and want to attend be sure to contact me in advance. We always swap at our meeting. I hope you liked what was posted today.

Stamp Club projects

Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry are one of my favorite color combinations and it worked beautifully with this card using the single Hello stamp from the summer mini.
I just love the Faith in Nature exclusive hostess set. Here I used Chocolate chip, Pear Pizzazz, and More Mustard. The cardstock was cut 4 1/4 x 9 and scored at 3 1/2".
Here is a closed up of one of the new embossing folders called Designer Frames. It comes with two embossing folders, one oval and one rectagular.
I love the vintage look. I cased this layout from Diana Gibbs. I added the doily background, the ruffled Pool Party ribbon, and trinkets.

It is filled with fun, swaps,ideas, prizes, free stamps,swaps, demonstrations, ideas, swaps, more ideas......get the picture!
