Nora's Home Party Projects

This weekend a great customer, Nora, had a home party with me!  I wanted to share the projects we made.

At a home party everyone gets to make two free projects and you, the host, get free stuff from Stampin' Up! based on the party sales!  How cool is that!  And, hostesses can choose to apply their free host dollars to our $99 Starter Kit, too!  (That's what Nora did!!)

Here are the two cards we made.  Nora requested birthday and bunnies!



Here are the supplies used:

A New Video for You!

Hey everyone,

These two techniques are a different way to use the Aqua Painter and Watercolor Paper!  I think they are really fun and easy!

At my monthly Memory Keeping Class (#monthlycraftclass) this month we made the page inserts below.  On two of them we used 3 x 4 Watercolor Paper to do the two techniques in the video.  I hope you like the techniques and will give them a try!  I was inspired by a card Brian King made from Pinterest!

Anyone can attend Memory Keeping (or any of the other 3 classes I offer) each month!  The details are under the Events Tab.  April's classes are April 21/22, and the RSVP links will be posted soon.

We used Stampin' Up!'s Watercolor Paper and Aqua Painter to do both techniques.  On one we also used the Watercolor Pencils. 

Let me know if you have any questions!!

Aim for Alaska Blog Hop - Inspired by Alaska



I was honored to be asked to be a guest speaker on Kylie Bertucci's Aim for Alaska Facebook Training Group.  This is my very first Blog Hop that I'm participating in thanks to Kylie.  Her group is to help Stampin' Up! demonstrators get tips to earn the free incentive trip we can earn from Stampin' Up! - it's a cruise to Alaska this year!

I have been on an Alaskan cruise with Stampin' Up! twice before and it's AWESOME!!  My very first incentive trip I earned was an Alaskan cruise.  Only my husband and I went on that trip, but my daughter got to go the second time.  We all love it!  When I told my daughter about this Alaska themed Blog Hop, she said her favorite thing about Alaska was the train ride we took, so I should use a train stamp.  So, here goes!


Currently you're viewing my blog (Jennifer Cotton), and check out the list to see who's next!


Here are the supplies used in my card:






Have a GREAT week!
