Dawn's Shoebox Swap inspired Stamp Club Cards

My good friend and member of my downline Shannon Briglia and I went to NJ for my upline Dawn Raspas' Shoebox Swap event April 15-17 and had a fantastic 3 days of creating. We had to bring 2 different card designs and a 3-D project with all of the materials for 30 people to create. Shannon and I had some left overs of the cards and 3-D project we designed so I used them for my Vienna stamp club. Here are 2 of the 3 cards we made and a little box using the Scallop Circle bigz die and the Daisies #2 bigz die for the Big Shot.

My second project for UStamp Classes, Clubs and Camps

My second UStamp project posted today. This was a really fun one designed to be a class -- I designed 18 charm inserts to fit the 1 1/4" x 1" Simply Adorned Charm and a little folder attached to the box the charm comes in to keep the charm inserts organized.

My UStamp Project featured today on Big Shot Brilliance

The second project I designed for UStamp with Dawn & Friends Big Shot Brilliance is featured on the online class today. I decorated the Decor blocks and spelled out EASTER and SPRING. I used a huge variety of my Big Shot die cuts and embossing folders. I decorated five sides of the 6 blocks so it took awhile but it was lots of fun. There's a tutorial with lots of pictures available on the UStamp class site along with my Springtime Vintage wreath and 40+ super projects from other talented UStamp designers. Check it out at

UStamp Designer Swap Cards

The designers for UStamp with Dawn and Friends! participate in a designer swap each round of UStamp. Dawn pairs us up and we send each other a card and also send two cards to Dawn. Dawn then randomly chooses one designer and one member of UStamp to give a set of all the designer cards she receives. I haven't won yet but I've got my fingers crossed for this round.

I was paired up with Paula Dobson this time. This card came all the way from New Zealand to my mailbox in Virginia. Love that! Isn't it the cutest card?! I still haven't used this great stamp set "Eat Chocolate" but Paula has totally motivated me. I eat Hershey kisses when I create so this is a perfect card for me. I can already check off "eat chocolate" on today's check list (and it's only 10 am)! :) How about you??
