    Inky Whisper Sisters photos from past meetings.

    Inky Whisper Sisters photos Today was team meeting day. One of my favorite days of the month!! My team is called the Inky Whisper Sisters photos are older, but these ladies are amazing. Each has a different reason to be a demonstrator. Each brings so much to our stamping family. We even have a couple of “adopted” sisters. Some want to run a business. Some want to be happier shoppers, think discount. To me I love them all. I sure hope that they know how much they mean to me! I have a small sign that says… Friends become our chosen Family This is so true in this case. These…

    New Inky Whisper Sisters and a peek at things.

    New Inky Whisper Sisters I want to give a huge welcome to our New Inky Whisper Sisters. Yes, Bonnie and Clyde decided to be co-demonstrators. I will say that the first item on their wish list was the Cat punch. Second only to the Notes of Cheer Kit Collection items with the butterflies. They have several cards to make, I took down the list… Mooch – because he does not hiss at them. Penelope – because she smells so nice Mr. B because is really needs to like them. Logan because he is always nice and gives good pets. Cuddles because they were not big enough for Mother’s Day cards…

    February Team Meeting Swap – My fancy fold

    February Team Meeting Swap Yes, I had fun with the February Team Meeting Swap. The theme was using your favorite bundle/suite of product from the Jan-June Mini catalog. They all were slightly different in that some had Snails and some had Mushrooms. All the coloring was slightly different too. The background is the Snail Mail DSP. You know it was difficult picking just one. Which is your favorite?? The Snail or the Mushrooms (below)?? For this snail, I used the Petal Pink, Calypso Coral, and Magenta Madness Stampin’ Blends. The Mushrooms turned out super cute. I did however use a lot of Stampin’ Blend colors for these. Here is the…

    From February’s Team Meeting – Make n Take

    From February’s Team Meeting This card from February’s Team meeting was inspired by the card in the middle. I do love butterflies, shocker. However, that middle card is from a bazillion years ago. Okay, maybe not but close, really!! All of that product is sadly retired. Here is a question for you, do you keep cards to “C.A.S.E.” at a later date? I be you are wondering what CASE means, Copy And Selectively Edit. This fold was fun to figure out the first time. The second time was a piece of cake. No, it did not matter that it had been a bazillion years. It was all about the measurements…

    The third Thursday, my favorite Thursday.

    The Third Thursday I bet you are wondering why the third Thursday is my favorite!! That is Inky Whisper Sisters team meeting day!! Yup, we meet the third Thursday of every month. Both, in person and via video too! Wondering what happens at these team meetings?? I will share a little bit. We have dinner together (in-person). We talk about “things” that are going on with us since last we met. I strongly encourage everyone to bring at least one question each month. Why so that we can ALL learn things. In addition, it is always fun to hear others answer the questions. My idea, Paula’s and Julie’s ideas are…

    Inky Whisper Sisters Swap Sketch card.

    Inky Whisper Sisters Swap Sketch Have you ever tried creating a card from a sketch?? I love sketches, why?? Well, you can use the layout or design that the sketch provides. However, you can change the shapes, or the orientation of the card. Because a sketch is just to get you thinking. It sure was fun to see what the Inky Whisper Sisters swap sketch cards turned out to be!! Take a look at the things that I choose to “C.A.S.E.” (copy and selectively edit). I liked the way the twine was added, because everything should have some sort of ribbon, right?? But I used circles instead of a square…

Paula and I … plus a few new members, Tammi, Kaitlyn and Sharon. Know that I am grateful for you…. And look forward to all our travels and shenanigans together!! You know the bestest part?? Yup, bestest…. we are all different but we all love what we do…
