Joyful Heart Breakfast Gathering---Recap

I’m finally back—wow, the last 2 weeks of my life have been extremely hectic and the last month has been a roller-coaster ride—I’m sorry I haven’t gotten anything posted.

We are right in the middle of Sale A Bration so I hope that you’ve had a chance to update your stamping supplies And earn some free SAB items!

The following are our projects at the meeting as well as some of the things that were shared:


This stamp is from the packed for birthday stamp from the mini as well as the Party the Way stamp set that is free with a $50 purchase.  Saw this idea at Leadership and loved how simple it was to do!







Shelli, the company owner, showed this card on stage and I loved it!


  • the feathers are made with the blossom builder punch—just one of the leaves.
  • I scored the paper, then cut it so that the score line was down the center of the ‘feather’. Then you just make small slits,  slanted downward on each side and cut out a few to make it look like irregular feathers. 
  • To make the speckles: I just take one of my empty brad containers and spray some water in, put a drop of ink color then take my aqua painter and get the tip wet with the inky mixture, then just hold it over my paper and tap with scissors or something heavy, to make the color splat onto the card. 
  • I used Early Espresso, Island Indigo and Crumb Cake for my ink colors too.  Hope you enjoy!

IMG_8051 I did this page to give the gals a sample of a bunch of our embellishments!  First, you have shimmer brads, then buttons, then flower brads, then regular brads and not to mention, pearls.  I did want to put our clear buttons on but the page looked a little full. The picture is of my daughter, Briana on the left and her friend, Briawna on the right.



We did these cases for the framelit dies---you attach our magnetic sheets inside to easily hold the dies in one place!


It’s just one of our empty stamp cases.













This card  was a swap that I saw at Leadership.  What an amazing idea!

Uses the punches: postage stamp, blossom punch, eyelet border, and 1” circle punch.

Tip: there is a piece of island indigo cardstock that the postage stamp punched pieces (takes 5-6 of each design) are glued to, then the edges are punched by the eyelet border punch.

Some of the swaps and demos:

I have pics of Debbie’s cause she left them so everyone could look at.

Jody Demo’d how to do a spirograph with the Baker’s Twine and scallop circle punch out.  Jody, can you send me a pic to post here?”

Mandy demo’d how to do crayon and wax art with an iron and did some adorable ideas—once again, I have no pics…can anyone share?

Lynne showed some great ways to use our empty stamp cases for storage or creative uses.  Does anyone have photos?
