Stampin' Up! Perfect Blend & More Convention 2013

Ok, I'll have to admit, I wasn't sure if this stamp set, Perfect Blend, was for me.  It just didn't make me go, I GOTTA HAVE THAT!

But two of my best peeps made cards with it and its now on my list!

This first one is made by Donna Marcil, it was one of her convention swaps.

#131392 Perfect Blend Stamp Set, #126848 Gumball Green Ribbon, #130933 Subtles Candy Dots, #132293 Candy Dots Brad Bases, #127749 Chevron Embossing Folder.

Donna is one of my downline and as one of my friends called her, she's my fun and inappropriate friend!
Here's a picture of some of "The Craft Pots" after awards night at convention.  I'm still tired thinking about it!
Left to right: Vicki Ott (in my 4th level), ME :0), Kris Thomas, Teri Voss and Donna Marcil.
These ladies had me laughing so hard and rolling my eyes at the same time!  I'm so glad they were able to come and experience Stampin' Up!'s 25th Anniversary with me.  It was our big adventure!  I'm hoping more of my Craft Pots can make it next year!

There's just so much to share.  So some highlights:
My friend and inspiration, LeeAnn Gref, not only sold 70K in sales, but once again was in the top 100 of demonstators AND was chosen to be on Stampin' Up!'s Advisory Board.  This is one of the top honors you can have as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.  I was so happy for her!!!  OH MY, I'm getting goosebumps just thinking about it!!!  What an amazing and gracious lady she is.  You might recognize some of her work from Flowerbug's Inkspot.

I'm honored to call her my friend!

Besides going to convention, you can also go visit the home office.  I think this year will be my last going to see it, as I've now seen it about 5 times.  Its beautiful and you for sure should go see it at least once while there, but 5 times is enough for me.

This was the inside of the atruim when you walk in the front door.  Its 3 stories high and just gorgeous!

And here's The Craft Pots, outside the entrance.  Teri moaned and groaned about getting this picture taken, so she hide behind the sign
see her gofer head?

I KNOW that after seeing all the fun we had, and all the loot we got, you too want to go next year.  So now's the perfect time to join The Craft Pots!

 Purchase the Stampin' Up! $99 Starter Kit by August 31 and you'll become part of the Stampin' Up! family (demonstrator discounts and perks) and my group The Craft Pots PLUS get a FREE bonus project kit!  Hobby stampers are welcome! Just go to and join now.
You will NOT regret it!

OK, so this is the other card I promised with Perfect Blend.  My friend, Natalie Bauman made it and I thinks its stinking cute!  I want to go get a cup of coffee!

My camera is not doing it justice!  Trust me, way cute.  I did a challenge with the rope I brought back from Fiji.  Its coconut rope, and I gave all my club girls a piece and challenged them to use it on their next card.
Now go create your own Perfect Blend! Yes, pun intended!

WOW is all I can say.  There were close to 6000 people at convention and you could tell!  We got lots and lots of goodies and here's my picture to make you want to come next year!

We got that super cool backpack which I love!  I'm not a big backpack fan, but this one is comfy with tons of pockets.  And look at all the loot!  Doesn't it make you want to come next year.  Just adding up the product I received for free it totaled over $167!  Now that doesn't include the backpack or make and take supplies or lunch.

Is this the cutest or what???  My roomie received this in an organized swap, I'm sorry I don't know the person who made it but STINKING CUTE!!!

Here's a picture of a treat swap I did for an organized swap during convention.  Aren't they cute?! Stuffed with Reese's Peanut Butter cups!

Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper Stacks

Hello All!
I'm off to Stampin' Up!'s 25th Anniversary Convention and wanted to post a quick picture of this super easy bag to make.  It just takes 2  12x12 pieces of DSP and a few score lines.  SUPER simple!!  I got the great idea from Dee Slater (and my friend Natalie who directed me there!)
I just love this idea, so I made it for a swap I'm in with my upline's group.  We had to make a gift with coordinating bag and card. 

Supplies used:
#130024 Coastal Cabana Ribbon for the handles and for the bag itself ##1300136 2013-2015 In color DSP Stacks.  Same for the card but I used the stamp set Chalk Talk #130634.

Now go be inspired and play in your craft room!

Stampin' Up! Ribbon Share!

With all the wonderful new products Stampin' Up! has come out with in the new catty, you want it all but just can't afford it all!  Boo Hoo!
Well, this will help with the budget!

I'll be doing a few ribbons shares this month.

1.  3/4" Chevron Ribbon.  Cut it in half and you've just doubled your supply!
Only $26.00 a share, that's 2 yards of 12 colors of Chevron Ribbon!  If you  had to buy each one it would cost you over $124!

2.  3/8" and 1/8" Taffetta Ribbon.  Only $19 a share!  Again, that's 12 different
colors of ribbon at 2 yards each!  If you had to buy these separately it would cost over $88!

3.  3/8" and 1/4" Stitched Ribbon.  Only $23 a share!  This is 15 different ribbons at 2 yards a piece!
Buying these by themselves would empty your wallet of over $109!

This is a super duper awesome way to get a little of each, play with them and fall in love!
Each of these shares are 2 yards of each color of the type of  ribbon offered. Prices are pick up prices only.  If you would like it mailed to you add $3.95 for shipping.

This offer can not be combined with any club orders or workshop orders.  Offer ends, July 31, 2013 and is only good through me, Robyn Scherzer.  Email me if you are interested!

Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July!
 We are so blessed to live in a free country!  Our little town will have the fireworks display tomorrow, so today, we are enjoying each other as a family.

We were cleaning up the backyard and I hadn't gone in the back corner in a while and I noticed our raspberries were starting to ripen, so Sage and I started picking.  They are sooooo good!

 These were so yummy in vanilla yogurt!  I love the "freshness" of summer!

Had to end my post with this super card that Juli Henrie made.  It just made me smile when I got it!  

Have a safe and happy 4th of July.  And God Bless America!!!
