Swappin' in Orlando with Creation Station!

I had the privilege of swapping cards with my Creation Station cohorts that were in Orlando! And wow, this was a fabulous swap!!

Many of us went to dinner afterwards, which was so nice to get to chat a little more with some of the ladies! We ate awesome Cuban food (I had seafood paella - yum), tasty drinks and great company!

And here are the beautiful cards we traded -

Back from Stampin' Up!'s OnStage!

I'm back! Back from Orlando, where we were celebrating Stampin' Up!'s 30th!! What a great time it was! 

The trip started with my Stampin' Besties, Kaylene and Liz! And not only were we celebrating Stampin' Up!'s 30th, but we were also celebrating Kaylene's 60th!

We spent the day and evening at Epcot!! We rode a couple rides and enjoyed the Food and Wine event!

 We had a great dinner at the Italian restaurant in Epcot too! They even sang Happy Birthday to Kaylene!

Then Liz and I were off to the CentreStage celebration! It was a night of desserts and karaoke - lots of fun!

They fired up some donuts in Cinnamon Fireball ๐Ÿ˜ณ- And dropped in some vanilla ice cream and cherries - Wowzsa!! And not like we needed another dessert - 

But it was good!๐Ÿ˜œAnd they ended the evening with Fireworks (but I didn't get any pics) - what a day!!

I hope you'll stop by tomorrow, I'll be showing some of the swaps I made and received!

Creation Station Hop - In All Things Give Thanks!

Howdy, and Welcome to Just Julie B Stampin' - We are 'Giving Thanks' this month with Creation Station! So my take on the theme this month was Thanksgiving in the U.S. - but I decided to go a little alternative with my colors! I Love, Love, Love the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Papers - so I decided to create around them. - Plaids are SO in right now!!

I made a coordinating card and little Hershey Nugget Treat Holder! And I used the Country Home stamp set because I Love the sayings (well, I do like just about all of it really). 

For the card, I layered the plaid and it's backside on the Early Espresso card base. Then I tied the Mossy Meadow Cotton Twine around (love the softness to that twine!). And for for the focal point, I used the cotton bouquet from the Country Home set, but I didn't want to use a pail or pitcher for the base, so I added the saying below it! - And I did use Early Espresso ink for the stamping, even with Stampin' Blends coloring. I was just careful not to color to heavily! To my surprise, it worked great!

So for the Treat Holder - I used a fun little template I found from The Paper Pixie (from about a year ago)! She's awesome at little treat holders - Click HERE for the You Tube video on how she made this. My favorite thing about it is that you can make the holder (super easy, using the Envelope Punch Board) and cover three Hershey Nuggets - ALL with a 6" x 6" piece of Designer Series Paper! 

I hope you enjoyed your stop by, and thanks for hopping with us - and up next is the fun and fabulous Dena Rekow! Click on the link below to hop on over there!
