I am married and have children and grandchildren. My grandfather bought me my first pony when I was 10 years old. I now have 6 horses, and I am a riding instructor. I got into stamping because I wanted my riding students to make day camp t-shirts. I became hooked on stamping, and became a Stampin'Up demonstrator in 2003.
Just wanted to show off my nails. I don't usually do anything with them & I know I'm not the best polisher, but I did them for a Christmas party. I used rub ons & then put a top coat over them. I could not believe how easy it was!!
Here are a couple pictures of Rose's projects from stamping last night. She loves her owl punch. I think she has made every kind of animal except an owl. The small box holds 4 Hershey nuggets, and the other candy bar is a gift card holder.
Here is one of the cards we made at my stamp-a-stack.
Serene Snowflakes stamp set
xlg oval punch
white embossing powder
Whisper White Organza Ribbon
Not Quite Navy CS
Baja Breeze CS
The greeting is from Bells & Boughs-Not Quite Navy ink-can you see I sponged around the white cs and used Dimensionals to attach it to the card front
I saw the idea for this card on the Demonstrator Web Site. This is a great place for demonstrators to talk and get ideas from each other and SU ideas and info. If you are interested in becoming a demo let me know.
I just thought of something else to add. If anyone is thinking about becoming a demonstrator remember SU if offering the 1/2 price demo starter kit thru Nov 30. Okay with that said--you could order the My Digital Studio thru the Online Spectacular (at half price) then order the standard starter kit (at half price). What a great deal!! Just a thought. If anyone has any questions just let me know. Cindy

This is a picture of one of the gifts we will be making at my gift class tomorrow. I probably should have set it up, but I would have gotten to much glare. It will set up on a desk. It is one of those plastic picture frames. The paper can be changed for the season. Of course I found some horse paper.

Well, Rose & I had alot of fun playing with the owl punch. Yes, the owl punch was the main punch. I did a close up of the reindeer, but the first picture has all the animals that were made. The punches used were--owl punch, bird punch, circle & oval punches. I think the google eyes made a nice touch-don't you? I am planning my calendar now. Be sure to check back for class dates thru Christmas.
If anyone would like to have a workshop let me know. SU has the special going & Christmas is a great time to make cards.
Here are a couple views of my latest project. One of my lesson student's mom is having a baby next month & I am going to the shower today. I had alot of trouble finding a horse for a topper. I found the topper at Tractor Supply (one of my favorite shopping spots). I think it is supposed to be a mule. It had a cute sweatshirt that said TSC on it. I will just give that to them, but can you see the year on the hoof. I thought that was cute. I made my own lace with a 1 inch strip of card stock and punch. Then I put it though the crimper 2 times to make it really flexible. It is hard to see, but I stamped the cardboard tray to match the paper, birth announcements...
We all had a fun time at the mystery hostess classes. Jan W. won the free hostess set & Sandy K. won the free merchandise. We also started filling the awards board--What is it??? I have 35 envelopes on a board. For every $35.00 in merchandise you buy you get to put your name in one of the envelopes. When they are all full a winner is picked and that person will win a $35.00 gift certificate from me for there next order. If you order on line I will contact you to find out what number you want, but you can not redeem it on line it is only available thur me. I hope that makes sense. Happy Stamping
Well, this is one of the cards that we will be making for our mystery hostess class on Friday, August 6. There is a morning class from 10am -1pm or the evening class from 7pm - 10pm. Sorry that the picture is not right. I'm not sure how to turn it (everything I tried didn't work). This card idea came from Lorri Heiling. It was featured in my monthly stamping magazine from SU. Isn't it cute!!! Once again sorry that I couldn't get it pictured the right way.
Okay, I was able to upload the first card I did--it is the top card that is facing the right way, but the picture is not as good. I will figure out how to post this stuff right one of these days. Please R.S.V.P. if you are coming.
Just wanted to let everyone know about the special that Stampin'Up is offering. You get an extra $25.00 in free merchandise when you have a $350.00 workshop. This is in addition to your normal hostess benefits. What a great deal! If anyone would like to host a workshop to qualify for this special let me know. The special is available till August 31. Please check out this link for all the details. http://www.stampinup.net/esuite/home/stampwithcbrown/promotions
Just a quick note to let everyone know that there is a change in the open house date. It is changed to Friday, July 23 from 7-10pm. I hope this will be a better time for everyone. Sorry about the late notice. Happy Stamping Cindy
Wow, I finally got things updated. Notice I put a link to my SU website. This will be a quick link for anyone who wants to shop on line. My NEW CATALOG OPEN HOUSE is on Friday, July 16. I am going to have 2 sessions --10am -1pm & 7pm-10pm. I plan on tons of fun...door prizes, make & takes, and new things to see. I am going to have a "horsie" board. Yes, I know what a name!?-- and what is it? I will have 35 envelopes on a board. For every $35.00 in merchandise you spend you will get to put your name in an envelope. This is for on line orders also. When all 35 envelopes have a name in them one will be drawn for a $35.00 gift certificate from me for your next SU order. I hope this makes sense to everyone. Your gift certificate can only be redeemed thru me (sorry it can't be used for an on line order).
I hope to see you at the open house. Please R.S.V.P. so that I know how many make & takes to prepare. Bring a friend new to me and you will both receive a free gift. Happy Stampin Cindy
Hi Stampers Just wanted to let my "horsie friends" out there know---Did you notice that the horse set WANTED is on the last chance list?? If you don't have it andwant it make sure you order before June 30. Now the good news!! Ihave heard that there is a new western set in the catalog. I'm not sure what it looks like, but at least there is one there!!! I get my new catalog on Friday with the last order I placed I can't wait!!!!! Happy Stampin
Here are the new colors that will be coming out in July 2010. This was a tuff one to figure out how to get here. Please notice that it has the new colors--the returning in colors--& the colors that we now have and will carry over.
Wow!! I can't believe I figured this out!! This is a picture of the outside of the scrapbook purse we are going to be making. This is an old one I had. It was done with old in-colors. OH remember some of the in-colors are coming back!!! I will try and post a picture of the inside, but I didn't think that it was the best picture. Please remember it looks better than the picture. Okay the pictures are in the wrong order. I guess I didn't figure it completely out. I'm not sure if you can tell, but there are pull outs for pictures. Anyway we will be making one of the purses. Some of the colors will be different. I hope this gives you a pretty good idea of our project.
Hi Stampers Wow, I need to play catch up. I want everyone to know about the special SU is having right now.

SU is also going to change some colors when the new catalog comes out in July. I am trying to figure out how to post the color charts. If I can't post them here maybe I can get them on the side. I sure hope one day I will figure this thing out.
I am going to list the colors that will be leaving. Remember if you want any paper, ink, markers, ribbon in any of these colors PLEASE order it in April or May. Any and all orders will be filled, but if you wait till the last chance list comes out SU may run out of your favorite before you get what you want. Here is the list-pink passion, pixie pink, pale plum, orchid opulence, lovely lilac, lavender lace, almost amethyst, bordering blue, brocade blue, ballet blue, brilliant blue, taken with teal, glorious green, handsome hunter, sage shadow, mellow moss, green galore, gable green, barely banana, yoyo yellow, summer sun, apricot appeal, only orange, really rust, ruby red, cameo coral, blush blossom, creamy caramel, close to cocoa, & going gray.
Some of the colors that will be new are really returning in colors-melon mambo, pacific point, tangerine tango, river rock, soft suede, riding hood red, rich razzleberry, wild wasabi, pink pirouette, baja breeze. The real new colors are daffodil delight, cajun craze, early espresso, cherry cobbler & marina mist. We will also get new in colors in July. I hope that this info will help everyone. If you have any questions or want to place an order just let me know. Remember if I can figure out how to put a chart on here I will. Happy Stamping Cindy
