Sunshine SU Demo August Blog Hop- Fall Theme

Welcome to our August Sunshine SU Demo Blog Hop! We are all Stampin' UP! demonstrators that live in Florida either part time or full time.  We gather together to share ideas with one another on a regular basis.  This is another way of sharing what we love with others.  You may have just hopped over from Kari's blog to see what fun things she had for you. We are glad you are here.  

Even though I live in Florida I still love fall and have fond memories for raking leaves with our kids, carving pumpkins and the crisp fall air.  

Today I am sharing a scrapbook page with you using Alphabest stamp set and the new Leaf Label pack from the August-December catalog.  Our family had just finished raking leaves and this is Eric on his tire swing and if I remember correctly he jumped right in the middle of those leaves.  You could just see the joy on his face.  This photo was taken in 1985 and next week Eric will be celebrating his and Chrissy's 20th wedding anniversary. 

If you follow my blog at all you may notice I have been sharing scrapbook pages lately.  Today I decided to add photos.  I have a million (don't we all) I am trying to make scapbooks for the boys to give them one day.  When every ONE DAY is!  Right? 



 Thank you for stopping by and I hope you will join the rest of our hop.   Make sure you hop on over to Renee's blog to see what she has for Fall!

WagStamper Team August Blog Hop - Fall Fun

 Welcome to our August WagStampers Blog Hop. My name is Frances Wagner and team leader of the WagStampers team.  We love sharing with you, this month is all about fall. Fall is one of my favorite times of the year.  I need to scapbook some of my photos of my boys playing in a pile of leaves we just raked. 

When I saw this Hello Harvest bundle I knew I wanted to make something fun with it.  Have you noticed the Kraft Note Cards and Envelopes that come with this cute box?  I love boxes too.  I like to give little hostess gifts in them.   

On my box topper I stamped the pumpkin on the stripped dsp and used the blend markers to shade in.  I colored in pearls to make the bling work for me. 




 Thanks for stopping by and make sure you go to the others on the hop:

NC SU Demo July 2022 Blog Hop - The Great Outdoors

Welcome to our NC SU Demo July Blog Hop. My name is Frances Wagner from Vero Beach Fl. I am privileged to be part of the NC SU DEMO FB GROUP. This month was a fun theme. The Great Outdoors. When I saw the theme I knew exactly what I wanted to create.  When our kids were young we would go to the Chickahominy River in Williamsburg, VA. each Friday.  We would come home from school and work; pack the car and off we would go for a fun weekend.  We had a pop-up camper not like this adorable one that is in the SAB catalog, but we were happy campers (so to speak)  The kids loved it and so did we. Our campsite was right on the river and my husband Rich cut in steps from the bank down the river.  We even had a small beach for the kids to play on under a huge tree.  Those were the most happy times in life for us.  I added the little dog that reminds me of our sweet Dixie that we got in March. 

Meet Dixie (who is full of energy)

Below is a card I started to make for my customer group but did not add a sentiment yet. 

   Thank you for stopping by and I know you will love the rest of the blog hop.  I can't wait to see what they came up with. Be sure to hop on over to what Tonya Bowers - has for you.

Wagstampers Team Sale-a-Bration July-Blog Hop

Welcome to our first WagStampers Team blog hop.  My name is Frances Wagner, the team leader for WagStampers Stampin' UP! Team and I am blessed to have such a wonderful team that want to share what we do.  This month we are featuring products from the July-August Sale A Bration Catalog. You may have hopped over from Laura McGinnis' blog make sure to check my other team members blogs for great ideas. 

I am featuring the adorable Hippo Dies and Hippest Hippos matching stamp set that you can get FREE from SAB CATALOG.   When you spend  $50 you earn one or spend $100 and earn both!  

I was trying to work on a card when the idea of a beach a scrapbook page would be so cute.  This is a 6x8 size to fit the photo pocket pages style that we carry on page 135 of our annual catalog  I love this style because a blank 12x12 size intimidates me!  I’m trying to get back into scrapbooking because my goal is to make a scrapbook for my boys this year.  We will see if that happens!

Welcome to our NC JUNE BLOG HOP- My name is Frances Wagner and I have been blessed to be with the NC SU DEMO group for many many years from the beginning of their existence and it is amazing how we have kept in touch over the years.  That is one of the reasons I love being a SU demonstrator, "the relationships"

My projects came from my March Hello Ladybug Stamp Camp.   You may have just come from Toni's blog with her fabulous BUG IDEAS, if not don't forget to go back check her out. 

I like a faux center step fun fold card. I believe I got this idea from my friend Allison Barber.  I love that other demos share there ideas with each other.

Even though this stamp set was created to make Ladybugs I saw numerous things made with it. This for instance is this dang cute butterfly. Just punch two sets of wings change direction and color and voila you have a butterfly. The dsp has been retired now. 

I always like to include a 3-d project in my stamp camps that includes a treat. I just colored on this black and white stripped dsp (daffodil delight) and it turns into a bee. I punch out vellum wings. This is a retired box (I miss them) and the dsp is from the daffodil SAB Designer Paper. I was sad to see both go. 

One of my favorite color combinations is real red, basic black, and a touch of daffodil delight and this time I added granny apple green. 

Another fun fold card, just fold your card stock in half and the top piece half again. I also need to say I LOVE, LOVE gingham ribbon with this set and these colors. 

For added fun I used Melon Mambo as my accent color.

Thank you for stopping by and don’t forget to check out the rest of the group for a few more bugs.
