From the looks of these photos from previous years events you wont want to miss the big ol' party going down with Sherrill Graff - I sure wish I was going to convention this year, but alas, a family vacation to the midwest to visit family was instead in my deck of lifes cards this year ---- I hate that I have to miss the fun - but if you are going be sure to check these out! And lemme know how much fun you had :)
Stamp something for me :)
The other day while looking for a parking spot at the grocery store I found a car advertising their business on the back window - then in the corner there was this little case with the ladies business cards in it and I thought HOW CLEVER I wonder what that thing is.... so I did what any girl would do - I messaged my "go to" gal for anything Party Plan business related - THE PARTY PLAN COACH - and asked if she knew what it was - the answer was a resounding - A CARD CADDIE!
And great news... she's got a givewaway going on RIGHT NOW to win TWO of these awesome things --- check out the details :
The Card Caddie is absolutely the best Marketing tool under $15! By adding aCard Caddie to your vehicle you can advertise your business wherever you are! Whether you are grocery shopping, going to a movie, or even going to a concert – your car is advertising for you, and even handing out your business cards! The Card Caddie keeps your Business Cards clean and protected from sun and rain, giving you a terrific first impression – even when you aren’t around! You simply place your business card in the front display window, fill the inside with as many cards as it can hold, attach the Card Caddie to your vehicle, and voila! You are ready to start advertising anywhere you go! Each Card Caddie comes with a Window Hanger to make it easy to remove or move from vehicle to vehicle if you have more than one family car.

Recently I was given the opportunity to "test drive" a new product. My friend Lynsey at the Party Plan Divas was contacted to do a review on this great product called the EZ Display - Lynsey asked if I'd be interested in having her come over with this great tool, have me set up a display and allow her to take a few photos to be used in her review. I had a GREAT time catching up for a few moments with her, but was IMMEDIATELY stopped in my tracks when I felt how LIGHT this product was and how quick and easy we got it all set up! No directions needed I just jumped right in and got it popped up!
According to the specs this product weighs in at a MEASLY 5 lbs (or less :) ) and folds up similar to an artists portfolio bag - an integrated handle and sturdy locking knobs make for an easy setup and takedown as well as transport. The EZ Display is made of lightweight and durable Coroplast material (like realtor or political signs).
Currently it's only produced in white, but I did give a suggestion of it being offered in a slate gray or even black in the future which I think would prove IMMENSELY useful for those of us in the papercrafting world to set off our projects. There is plenty of open space to add your company stickers or other "decor" to compliment your product display. The entire base of the EZDisplay is all in one piece – the shelves simply fold down and stick into little holes that securely lock into place to hold even heavy candles or children’s toys. Then the top just sits easily on top to add even more space to display your goodies.
The best part is the value of this product! Currently the "expo" model of the EZDisplay is being sold for a pocket pleasing $73!
So toss that heavy and cumbersome card table and head over to EZDisplay to make your purchase today!
Or better yet - check out the Party Plan Divas site and get in on the GREAT giveaway there :) Good luck - but not too much, because I sure am hoping I win :)

Welcome to the Dusty Durango Path of the Royal Blog Tour. You are currently located at Stop Number 2.
Hi - welcome to my blog! I'm so glad to be a stop on this great Blog Tour - I hope you enjoy what you've been seeing so far! I'm so happy to feature the stamp set Party Hearty with you on this stop!
I love making birthday cards and since we just recently had a birthday in our house it was sooo fun to play with this stamp set for the blog tour. My birthday girls favorite color is Pink so I started with that and then just let the creativity flow!
For my next work of heart I just HAD to use some glitter... I love love love Glitter in case you didnt know..... it's just such a great embellishment and is honestly pretty inexpensive! Besides, who doesn't like something shiny in their life right?!
I use Dazzling Diamonds glitter mixed in with Crystal Effects to "frost" my cupcakes on this one! They look so YUMMY in person! It's hard to tell in my photo (and I just couldn't get a good angle) but the cupcakes circles are raised up with Stampin Dimensionals too so they practically jump into your mouth!
Supplies used: Cardstock: Regal Rose, Real Red, Old Olive, Summer Sun, Whisper White; Inks: Summer Sun, Regal Rose, Olive Olive, Creamy Caramel; Accessories: Modern Label Punch, Scallop Circle Punch, Paper Piercer & Mat Set, Crystal Effects, Dazzling Diamonds, Stampin Dimensionals
And as a bonus - here is the PERFECT goody treat bag!
This great treat bag uses our Sizzix Curly Label Movers & Shapers Die for the Big Shot

On the Royal Blog Tour that is ...
As seen in previous postings I spent some time preparing gifts for two brides. Here is my FAVORITE card from the gift sets I recently created.
Isn't that dress lovely? To create the dress I ran Cardstock Vellum through my Big Shot with the Manhattan Flower embossing folder. Then I ran the embossed piece through the Big Shot with the Scallop Circle die. Then I cut away part of it to give our bride a nice figure.
I added a belt with Grosgrain Ribbon in Pretty in Pink, layered it onto a Chocolate Chip piece which I edged with the Eyelet Border punch and then mounted onto Pretty in Pink. I then stamped "Thank You" and punched with the Scallop Oval punch and layers onto the Large Oval punch piece in Pretty in pink I mounted onto card with Stampin Dimensionals. I did however use one product that is not stampin up. I didn't have enough half back pearls on hand (and of course in my usual procrastinating way of doing things didn't have time to order more) from Stampin UP! so I had to use some mini half backs of another brand that my mom had on hand. It is DEFINATELY much prettier with the Pretties Kit halfback pearls though!
I hope you enjoyed todays projects! To come stamp some beaitufl works of heart with me be sure to check out my events calendar @ www.elizabethsloman.stampinup.net/events
