Tandra's Don--I mean Llama

So for a long time--more than a year!--there has been a joke that SU needed a llama image--a freakin' llama, to be exact. My friend Tandra was so excited to find this "llama" in the new Spanish supplement catalog. Then someone had to burst her bubble and tell her what it really was. :-) So here, for Tandra, is the freakin' llama. Along with one of the Convention make-n-takes for those who are looking for real stamping stuff. Sorry it's so blurry--the llama wouldn't hold still!

Shelli's Die Cut Projects

If you weren't at Convention, I'm not sure you can fathom the wild cheering that took place when Shelli announced a partnership with Sizzix. Sah-weet!

Here are some of the projects she demonstrated using the new Stampin Up dies. Sorry some of the photos aren't that great! You had to shoot and move along!

These are the projects she did for her grandson's birthday party. I wonder if she'd adopt me???? Masks use the new SU SIzzix Pennant die. The basket is from the SU Basket and Blooms die.

These are quiet book pages she made for her grandchildren. I {heart} quiet books, so it was fun to imagine making more with my fancy schmancy new Big Shot and dies. :-) Probably be a few years, though. Not really in the market till there are grandchildren for me!

So beautiful! One of Shelli's daughters is expecting her first girl, and these are the shower decorations/favors and the nursery decor. The flowers are made of fabric and lace, all cut with dies in the Big Shot. To the left you can see part of the ruffled apron Shelli sewed *from the Baskets and Blooms dies* if you can even imagine! I would never have thought of such a thing! Along the right side, you can see some of the Christmas decorations made from the Pennant die.
