Simple Birthday card with other half of paper

Cutting the specialty paper into a diagonal gave me many options.  Use 2 sides on 1 card, use 1 half of each on 2 cards.  Use the opposite side... Since I love the black and white and gold like a formal party I wanted to keep it simple - black tie'ish.  Sentiment was from the Balloon Celebration stamp set.

Using the specialty paper cut in a different way.  Mixing it up.  Of course love the gold cord and the rhinestone accents to give it the bling!

I created my challenge card today too, but don't want to post it until they are up on my uplines site for voting.  It was fun trying to piece together the paper parts I was given to work with and then pick a current stamp set to use!  It is great being part of an active stampin' up! group. I am looking forward to our fall fest and other workshops and techniques available to me as a demonstrator. Having fun with my decision to jump in as a demonstrator again. ... I may be ready for customers and workshops in the next month!

My Official Business Website

I officially have my Stampin' Up! business website!  It is coming together since I decided to become an Independent demonstrator again.  Social media was NOT a thing the 1st time around and I had such a great group of people who loved Stampin' Up! just as much as me back then.  How fun to have an overwhelming amount of other stampers and demonstrators to share with and get ideas from now.

I love the idea of the direct business website to share out current promotions from the company and access to current catalogs online.

Here it is...
