Leadership Display 2014 #1 ~ Geometrical Valentine

Stampin' Up! Leadership Display 2014

Display Boards are one of the highlights of each Stampin’ Up! event!  It is an honor and also pretty exciting to be asked as members of the Artisan Design Team, to create samples to be put on display boards to be shared with the Demonstrators who attend this event.  While I was unable to go this year, I was thrilled to be able to contribute by creating samples to (hopefully) inspire those who got to see the creations of ALL of the Artisans first hand.. boy, do I wish I had been able to see them up close! I just know what the other girls created would have left me wanting to make at least one of each project! .. imagine that, my own set of Display Boards?!  .. Since that is a little impossible, I’ll settle for taking a peak at each of their projects here on the web by visiting their blogs at the links displayed below.  In case you’re like me and you couldn’t make it to Leadership, or if you were there and want to see how something was done or you want to leave a little love by sharing a comment, please follow the links by each Artisans name below to hop on through to their blogs to see everyone’s work.   Enjoy what you see!

In case you’ve never been to a Stampin’ Up! event, this is how much fun display boards are! Erica Cerwin snapped this photo of the display boards and was kind enough to share it for those of us who weren’t there.

Before we get into my projects, I have a little confession.. I somehow lost track of my progress and went on to create 2 more samples than the 24 that were required.  In all, I’ll have 26 projects to share and hope that they provide a source of inspiration.   Again, be sure to visit each of the Artisans for a variety of inspiration, there’s plenty of variety of styles and inspiration is sure to be found.  They are an inspiration to me too and their works may even have been inspiration for some of my projects along with the help of Pinterest and a whole variety of pins from there! I’ll try to make note along the way of which projects were Pinterest inspired.. I’m sure I have many!

Now, on with the projects.  The first project I chose to share is one of my Scrapbook Pages.  I used the Geometrical stamp set along with a variety of other products to create this Valentine themed page.

This page actually has quite a few products showcased.  The little stamped hearts here are from Banner Blast (an exclusive Sale a Bration stamp set for 2014).  The stamped triangles are from Geometrical and then I cut triangles from cardstock to co-ordinate with the stamped images.  The shapes and cut outs here and in the next photo are cut with both the Circle Card and Label Card Thinlit dies (flip card dies).  There are so many fun elements in those sets of dies!

Have you used the new Ampersand embossing folder yet?!  It’s great embossed on a layer to fill up a card front or cut out of your carstock.  Here, I embossed it and then hand cut it once each out of Basic Black and Real Red coredinations cardstock.  I also stamped a little scattering of images from Perfect Pennants and Geometrical through the page and in some of the corners.  I also outlined the circle that I stamped the triangles on with a Real Red marker to help give them some definition.
