Finally back ... and Circle Circus

I'm back from the Stampin' Up! Convention in Salt Lake City; I had a wonderful time seeing and making friends from all over the U.S. and Canada, learning lots of great ideas at the convention, swapping, and shopping Memento Mall (!) My friends and I from the greater Oklahoma City area participated in lots of pre-convention and during convention activities which were great learning experiences as well as fun! Hi Jann, Connie, Leslie and Gayle! :)

The convention is for SU Demonstrators only. I'd love for you to join me next year as a demonstrator; Stampin' Up! has a great offer right now through August 31 to join this great company and start your very own business for only a small investment! What are you waiting for? Have fun helping friends and family create exciting projects, while earning free products and also extra cash! Contact me via my SU website here for more information. The password to sign up through my website is ellagrace.

Circle Circus is one of the great new sets in the 2009-2010 Catalog and Idea Book! It is amazingly versatile for creating so many different looks and projects! I saw quite a number of wonderful cards using this set at convention!

Here's a birthday card (aren't we always needing these!) I made using Circle Circus and three of Stampin' Up!'s new In Colors for the 2009-2010 year. This is an easy card to make; it is kicked up a little by stamping one of the circles onto Crushed Curry then punching it out with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch and adhering it to the stamped layer. This give a solid dash of color to the composition. The Dusty Durango grosgrain ribbon is polka dot on one side and solid on the other to make it more versatile also. A Soft Suede stamped image is punched out with the 3/4" Circle punch and added to the ribbon for interest. This card could be used for a male or a female recipient.
