Some Projects I Made with Stampin’ Up! Products

I may have mentioned that I enjoy attending Terry Bolender‘s monthly Stamp Camp and Stamp Club meetings.  Terry sells Stampin’ Up! brand products and I started buying products from her last July after searching for a demonstrator in Kent, WA.  I found her online and saw that she hosted regular classes for card-making and when we met in person, I knew she was someone I wanted to spend time with.

At Stamp Camp, we make 6 – 7 cards for just $10.  Terry pre-cuts everything and gathers everything needed for a particular card into a small plastic bin that gets passed around and shared.  She shows us each beautiful card and demonstrates any tips or hints she’d like to share with us and she stays nearby to assist us.  At Stamp Club, we get to make a fun paper-craft project that she’s designed or purchased the rights to use.

I wasn’t able to attend Stamp Camp because we were celebrating my husband’s birthday, so she let me do the Stamp Camp & Stamp Club all in one very late night.  I didn’t even finish all my cards and I still need to get the materials from her for my seventh card.  I finally had a chance to use my new giant ATG 714 “laser gun” adhesive!  Terry supplies the glue and adhesive, but I wanted to take my new monster adhesive tape gun out for a spin.  I really like how well it holds paper together and it will take me some time to get used to.

Here are the beautiful cards and special project we made at her house, based on her designs:

I made the paper rose with the holiday ornament punch – what a great use for that paper punch!  I decided to order it so I could make more roses and spray them with Smooch Spritz.  It’s resting on a cool box I made from two pieces of paper.

Now, I’m not going to show you a close-up of every card because some of my blog readers may find one of these cards in their mailbox someday.  🙂  If you want to see a particular card close-up or have questions, please post a comment below and I’ll help.  Thanks for reading my blog!

    These are so adorable! I really love the bright colors and all the designs. I keep thinking about getting that tape gun, but I just think it’s too big and clunky. I’m thinking of getting the smaller version…I forget the brand but it’s green and pink and half the size. I saw it at a local scrapbook store. You’ll have to keep updating on how you like yours 🙂
