It's been a while......

Hey!!! Sorry it's been so long since I've posted. We've had a lot going on around here. Eddie and I both got new jobs so it's been crazy trying to get back into the groove of working. And we are working on redoing our laundry room so that has kept us busy too.

But I thought I would attach some pics of the girls at Halloween!!

Here they are ready for a night on the town...or just some fun at the house passing out candy!

Hallie absolutely loved the costume. She just prissed around in it!!

I'll post soon...I promise!

I've been busy!!

I've been busy this week with lots of creations.

I made this mini pizza box:

It was simple and quick to make and can hold a variety of goodies!

I also made the following cards:

This card features the "Fresh Cuts" stamp set. I also used the new In Colors Kiwi Kiss and Tangerine Tango!

The card above features a Monogram 'B' stamped in Always Artichoke on River Rock. I mounted it on a piece of Bella Rose DSP. This was then mounted on Always Artichoke cardstock. I also used a piece of pink Taffeta ribbon.

World Card Making Day!!

Did you know that yesterday was World Card Making Day?? Were you able to find some time to stamp? I sure hope so!

Splitcoaststampers had challenges throughout the day that I was able to take part in. I had a great time!

The first card that I made was a sketch challenge. The person created a particular sketch for us to follow. This is my card:

The next challenge was to look at another member of SCS's gallery and choose one of their cards and make it our own. This is my card:

The next challenge was taken from the cover of the Coldwater Creek catalog. It was a beautiful picture with fall leaves. This is my take on the cover:

The next card that we were challenged to create was anything with a "tree" image. Of course this time of year Halloween and fall are on my mind so I chose to make this:

The next challenge was to create a card without using patterned paper or pastels. Kind of hard for me since I love SU! Designer Series Paper but I was able to come up with this:

And last but certainly not least, our last challenge of the day was to create a card using the following: A yellowy-orange cardstock, black, grey, lime green, and a neutral color. This is my creation:

I had a great time making all of these cards and I really appreciate SCS for hosting these challenges throughout the day!

Time for a change....

After a year and a half of being an active SU! demonstrator, I've decided to throw in the towel. I need to refocus on other areas of my life. So I will be more a hobby demo. But don't worry, if you still need to order, I'll be happy to take care of that for you but I will no longer have classes or stamp camps in my home. I'm also still available for workshops if you'd like to introduce others to the passion of rubber stamping.

I have lots of stuff going on right now. As many of you know, I am a wife to my wonderful husband, an active member of my wonderful Sunday School class, a member of my church choir, an aunt to two precious little boys, and a friend to many. I'm trying not to neglect any of these roles that I care so much about. I will also be attending school in the Spring and have recently started a new bible study. I just need some time to refocus my energy and also to get excited about stamping again and do it for fun and not feel like it is my job.

So, with that said, this blog will hopefully become a creative outlet for myself and a way for me to inspire many with more than just the specials that I'm offering or the items that my classes will offer. I plan to spend much more time in my stamp room learning new techniques and making gifts and cards for fun. And I'll be sure and share all of the creations with you!

God bless,

New Stamp Club is forming!

New Stamp Club Members Wanted!

This new club will begin in March. The day of the week and time is to be determined.

Answer the following questions and see if you are the person for a stamp club.
-Do you have stamps you've never opened?
-Do you want to learn more about stamping?
-Do you have trouble making time for yourself?
-Do you want to make new friends?
-Do you have trouble coming up with cute cards or Scrapbook pages?
-Do you need a creative outlet?
-Do you need a stress reliever?
-Do you want to get into stamping but can't put a lot of money into it at once.
-Do you want to host a party but can't think of anyone to invite?
-Would you like FREE stamps?

If you answered YES to any of the above questions then you NEED to join a Stamp Club!

What is a club?
It's a chance for you to meet new friends, get hostess benefits, learn new stampin' techniques, and get out of the house once a month! You’ll also do a make and take each time we meet!

How does it work?
You commit to meeting once a month and buy Stampin’ Up products. The amount is determined by the number of stampers in the club. The total must equal $150 to get hostess benefits so ....if there are 10 of you in a club you will commit to $15 a month (before tax & ship). Then one of those months you'll get hostess benefits!

Please respond if you have any questions and let me know if you are interested. It's such a fun time together!
