my first Magnolia / mon premier Magnolia

I forgot the name of this little cutie pie, but here's my first card with a Magnolia stamp. Isn't she adorable? She's skipping rope, one of my favorite activities growing up.

J'ai oublié le nom de cette gamine, mais voici la première carte réalisée avec les estampes de la compagnie Magnolia. N'est-elle pas jolie? J'adore cette petite coquine. Elle joue à la corde à danser, un de mes passe-temps lorsqu'étais jeune fille.

I colored her in with Stampin' Up!'s Classic inks in Riding Hood Red, Pink Pirouette, Kiwi Kiss, Blush Blossom, Groovy Guava, Close to Cocoa and Chocolate Chip. I stamped with Black StazOn on watercolor paper and used my Aqua Painter. The beautiful background paper is the new Bella Rose from Stampin' Up! and the background textured cardstock is the new Kiwi Kiss. I hope you enjoy it! For those of you who do not visit my Stampin' Up! blog regularly, please check it out as I have put together a video tutorial. My first... you can check it out here.

Après avoir estampé l'image avec de l'encre StazOn noir jais sur du papier aquarelle, j'ai colorié avec les encres de Stampin' Up! en Rouge Capulet, Petite pirouette, Bizou kiwi, Bouton de rose, Goyave parfaite, Presque cacao et Pépite de chocolat. Le papier en arrière-plan est le nouveau Bella Rose de Stampin' Up! et le carton texturé pour la base de la carte est de couleur Bizou kiwi. J'espère que aimez! Pour celles qui ne visitent pas régulièrement mon site Stampin' Up!, allez y jeter un p'tit coup d'oeil. J'ai compilé mon premier vidéo instructif... Vous n'avez qu'à

À bientôt!

so long, SLC ! *** ce n'est qu'un aurevoir SLC !

I'm back and boy what a trip and half!!! First of all, I'd like to thank my friend and travelling companion Carolynn for putting up with me and my "slowness". It was hot down there and my big body could not match her walking speed. But she was a good sport about it. Lova ya, my SU daughter!

I am trying to upload pictures, but for some reason Blogger does not let me. You'll have to turn to my Typepad blog here to see some pictures. Hopefully, the problem gets resolved soon.


Je suis revenue, mes amies, et quel magnifique voyage!!! Premièrement, j'aimerais remercier Carolynn, mon amies et compagne de voyage. Elle a sû s'accomoder de ma lenteur et mes plaintes de la chaleur avec tact. Ch't'aime, ma p'tite fille SU :-)

J'aimerais bien vous montrer des photos mais eBlogger ne me laisse pas télécharge ce soir alors vous devez vous tourner du côté de mon blog Typepag. Cliquez ici pour y accéder. J'espère que le problème sera résolu bientôt!

convention... day 3

Let me tell ya: this is not the last SU convention I will attend.I am so amazed. The people are fun and friendly. The SU Home Office team are so pleasant to deal with. I am totally under their spell. Shelli is a wonderful human being and it shows. This morning, we were treated with a fun performance by the SU band before our morning session. AND... here is the most amazing news:

That's right! Stampin' Up! is partnering with Sizzix to bring you the Big Shot die-cutting tool with exclusive dies. We're all excited here and I can't wait to give you more details.

Shelli showed some beautiful projects that were made with the wonderful exclusive dies, like this one:

And last but not least, my SU daughter Carolynn has walked the stage because she has reached the 20K sales. Congrats, Carolynn!

Can't wait to be able to manipulate my photos properly so I can show you bits and pieces of the catalogue. OK, off to bed now. We have another long day tomorrow.

a warm hello from convention!!!

Woohoo! It's hot... it's fun.... and I'm lovin' it!!! Let's just say that I am amazed at how this convention is organized. We are 5700+ demos here in beautiful Salt Lake City, Utah, gather for this amazing event. I am posting from my friend Carolynn's laptop so I apologize if the photos are not cropped properly or if my sentences are not so eloquent.

We went to the Momento Mall yesterday and guess who was at one of the cashier counter?!.... Yeah, none other than the infamous Kristina Werner. Here's my picture with her.

We are getting ready to go to the gala and there's still lots of to do and see. I just wanted to give you a little preview of the new products that are coming up in the new catalogue. I don't have a picture of the cover but I promise you that I will have it as soon as I return home.
Here are some of the rub-ons and new ribbons. The pictures are small but if you click on them, you'll get better definition.

The new Designer Series Papers, which are to die for!!!

Alright, I mucking up all the photos here, so I'm gonna let you go and hopefully I'll have time to do more blogging tomorrow. In the meantime, keep well!!!

Je m'en vais chercher le nouveau catalogue alors j'essaierai de vous donnner des aperçus et nouvelles fraîches mais ne peux rien vous promettre.

tangerine dreams *** rêves mandarines

I'm sorry I haven't been posting much and I apologize for that. Time files and daily dramas are a-plenty. But I have some encouraging news from my brother. He had his 4th surgery yesterday and it went well. We are keeping a positive attitude that he recuperates well and quickly.

On a different note, I've prepared a little card that showcases some of the new colors and products from Stampin' Up!. Click here to see the whole card. Talk to you soon!!!

Je suis un peu sauvage ces derniers jours et je m'en excuse. Le temps file et les drames quotidiens s'accument (hahah), mais j'ai quand même de nouvelles encourageantes. Pour celles qui sont au courant des débats de santé de mon frère, il a subit une autre intervention chirurgicale (la 4e) hier et tout s'est bien déroulé. Nous gardons bon espoir que c'est la dernière intervention et qu'il pourra récupérer très rapidement.

Voici un petit aperçu des nouvelles couleurs et produits de Stampin' Up!. Cliquez ici pour voir la carte. À bientôt!!!
