Welcome to the blog of Jane Hignite, Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator


Dog Days of Summer Punch Art Card

Welcome to the third 2011 VC Rocks Blog Hop…you've most likely arrived here from the Nichole's website  http://www.scrappystampsandink.blogspot.com/

 If you ever get lost along the way during the blog hop, you can go back to the main page – www.vcrocks.blogspot.com .

The theme of this blog hop is Punches Galore!

At least once a year, I host a Just Punchy Stamp Camp.  This event is a customer favorite – so much so I am now hosting 2-3 Just Punchy events each year.  I love teaching my customers how to create projects using Stampin' Up! punches in traditional and out-of-the-box ways.  This Tuesday August 16th is my next one – if you are local to West Bend, WI and would like to attend – send me an email to register!

Today's card was from one of my previous Just Punchy Stamp Camps – and is definitely an all-time favorite.  Throughout the entire United States, it has been a hot and humid summer, so I am now calling this card my Dog Days of Summer Punch Art Card!  I will also be offering this card as a card kit through the end of September.  The background color is actually Cherry Cobbler – my camera didn't seem to capture that correctly!

What is VC Rocks…and why do I love it?? VC Rocks is an online community where members share their love of stamping before, during, and after the Stampin' Up! convention. If you can't go (or even if you can) to convention, you can get your "stampin' mojo fix" with challenges, swaps, and discussions! I have "met' many fabulous stamping demos and nondemos through this group.

Little Chef Punched Art Scrapbook Page

Welcome to the first 2010 VC Rocks Bloghop.. you’ve most likely arrived here from www.stampinldyglfr62.blogspot.com, but if not, you can return to the start of our Blog Hop at www.vcrocks.blogspot.com .

I had the extreme pleasure of creating scrapbooks with a group of Brownie Scouts.  As a mother of three boys, this was a dramatic change from my usual environment!  It was lots of fun, and I think they really enjoyed creating a memory scrapbook from this year’s activities.  One of their activities we scrapbooked included baking together…I knew I had to create a little chef using my Stampin’ Up! punches!!!!

Since May is National Scrapbooking Month, I thought I would share this page for the first-ever VC Rocks Blog Hop!  For this month’s Blog Hop, we are featuring retiring colors and new Summer Occasions stamp sets.  I used both:  Close to Cocoa is featured on the page and is on the retiring color list (thankfully, more brown hues are coming), and I used one of the phrases from Go, Graduate from the Summer Mini Catalog on the page.  Here is the page:
