Mega Stamp Camp Full!

Wow! I have had an overwhelming response to this camp! All the spots I had available are full...yippee! Thank you to everyone who registered. I look forward to seeing (and meeting) you all!

For those of you that missed out, I am going to host another one in my home the following Saturday. We will complete the same projects just on a different day and at a different place.

Be sure to let me know by March 15th if you are interested in session 2!

Until next time, happy stamping!

Scrapping Page

My upline had a business team meeting this week and after all the business was over with we got to make this cool scrapbook page.

It is 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 and the picture is to go somewhere in the middle. I haven't found the perfect one for it yet, but I'm sure I will.

Ingredients: Stamp Set - Friendship Blooms (from the SAB mini), Cardstock - Wild Wasabi, Whisper White, Cutie Pie DP, Ink - Purely Pomegranate, Summer Sun, Old Olive.

The middle flower was stamped on a separate paper, cut out and then pasted on.

I think this would look awesome in a picture frame! Thanks for looking and until next time, happy stamping!

Scrapbook Fun!

First off, thanks to everyone for their well wishes on my previous post. My son is adapting awesome, and so are we. I was even able to leave him for a couple hours on Saturday. My upline held her quarterly 'fun' team meeting where all lines of her downline get together and stamp...for fun! We learned two things:
First, this card was demonstrated to us by Andrea Walford. She learned it from Leadership. Ingredients: East Coast Prep DP, More Mustard cardstock, Wild Wasabi double stiched ribbon, brad, jumbo eyelet and the stamp set So Many Scallops from the Sale-a-Bration brochure.

Second we learned how to make a scrapbook out of cardstock and chipboard! It was so cool! The instructions are to detailed to list here but I am thinking this would make an awesome class! This is the outside. I made it with Wild Wasabi textured cardstock and on the inside I used Looks Like Spring DP (retired paper...sorry!)
All I need to add now is 6 x 6 page protectors and some pictures!

Until next time, happy stamping!

Life is like a box of chocolates...

Forrest Gump really knew what he was talking about!

I apologize for not posting in a while, but life threw us a curve ball last week. One of my sons was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes and immediately admitted to the hospital for a week. Of course I stayed with him the whole time, except to go home and take a shower and have a really good cry! He is home now and back at school (which he didn't miss much of due to all the snow days!) which is hard for me as I am not there to watch his every move! LOL

I am still going to host my card party this coming Monday, so if you are in the neighborhood, make sure to stop by and make some cards!

Until next time, happy stamping!

Snow Day!

It was a snow day today, not only for the kids but for me too! How cool is that? So I finished preparing for my open house tomorrow, cleaned up my stamping area, shoveled about four times and notice that I need to shovel again! Okay, the snow can stop any time now! LOL! I also had to fight for the computer! Oh well, it was a great day overall.

Sale-a-bration starts today! Yippee! If you place an order of $70 or more, you will receive a FREE stamp set from the Sale-a-bration brochure! You can see these great sets on-line by clicking the Stampin'Up! link to the right of this post. Let me know if there is anything you would like to order as this sale ends March 17!

I still don't have any pictures to post. That darn snow stopped me from going out and getting a battery for my camera! Tomorrow it is supposed to be nice, so I will rush out before the open house!

Until next time, happy stamping!
