Tuesday's card class

 I had a great time at my 4 cards for $7 class on Tuesday. There were 4 participants, 2 of them were new. One of the new class members was an 11 year old girl, and she was great! She loved it, and was fast too. All of them did more than just make the cards I had prepared for them, they made them better! I love when they do that, I get to see how creative they are. The first four are the ones I planned for the class and the other six are their creations:

Clean Up!

  I was cleaning my craft room today and finally finished updating my display board. I went to a monthly demonstrator meeting Saturday and got some great swaps, so I had to finish fixing my board. Baby Rebekah sat with me and kept me company, while the other two played upstairs. Play time is the only time I get things done. I guess it's my play time too!
  Now to clean up my stamping desk......that can be quite the undertaking since I use it so often.

  I'm back! It took me while to get used to having the three kids, and my computer was having issues, so I would only check email and such. I'm sorry to leave you hanging for so long!
  Let's see, what have I been doing with my stamps lately? Oh, I made a large fold out card for my midwife,  my cousin's baby shower invitations, held two card classes and am now finishing up my swaps for a meeting tomorrow. So, in other words, I've been having fun!

I've learned some new techniques and am planning a big stamping event for November, so keep an eye on me! Happy Stamping!

New Stampin' Up! catalog!!!!

It is one of my favorite times of the year, new catalog time! And it is just as beautiful and exciting as can be! It's full of new stamp sets, accessories and ideas to inspire your creativity, and the 2012-2013 In-Colors are to die for. I'm still pouring over my catalog with stars in my eyes.

Last Chance List is here! Check it out!

Hi everyone! I'm still here! Our family welcomed our third child on May 29, so we've been kind of busy, and our laptop is quitting on us. So, I'll try to update you on what's been going on in the Stampin' Up! world.

As some of you know, we are coming to the end of this Stampin' Up! year, and that means some of the product is retiring. If you want to see what will be going away, check out the Last Chance List on my website. Stamp sets are available until June 30th and accessories are a limited availability, so get them while they are there! Because once these products are gone, they will never be available again! So, hurry while they are here!

In honor of the Last Chance List, I am having a stamping party at my house on June 25th at 3:00pm. We will be using retiring stamps and accessories, there will be snacks and a door prize! Let me know if you want to come, I'll have projects ready for you to stamp. I can't wait!

In July we will be welcoming a new catalog, and new products!!!! I've seen some of the new stamp sets, designer series paper, fabric, ribbon and In-Colors, and they are gorgeous! I can't wait to play with them. There is a new hostess plan coming with the new catalog and it will be so much fun for hostesses. If you want to host a party and receive these new benefits, let me know!

Well, that's all I can think of right now, so Happy Stamping!

Swaps from the monthly demonstrator meeting

Every month the demonstrator group I'm a part of, The Stamp Therapists, have a meeting where we go over the latest Stampin' Up! business and share ideas and tips with each other. We also swap card fronts so we can have plenty of samples using current product. Here are the one's I got (aren't they cute?!):

And here is the one I made for the meeting:

Craftroom Addition!

For my birthday yesterday, my husband picked up some paper storage for my craft room. Then I had to wait for him to get them out of the car, I thought I was going to explode! They are in my craft room now (I didn't explode) and I'm so excited I get to put them together! I can't wait get them mounted up on the wall and put my card stock in them. Everything will finally have a place and I'll be able to actually see all my card stock! Right now it's in accordion folders, tucked away so I can't look to it for inspiration, which my tired, pregnant mommy brain needs. And I never know when I need to re-order, that has been a problem. Once it's all together I'll put up a picture of it. There will be some empty spots for a while as I collect all 40 of Stampin' Up!'s beautiful, exclusive colors. I can't wait!

Last Night

I had my stamping night yesterday, and it was fun! My sister-in-law, mom and a neighbors came over. It was nice to finally meet one of my neighbors, and introduce her to stamping. We will have fun together in the future!

Forgot to add......

I mentioned I'm a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, but forgot to share my website with you! Silly me, here it is...
You can learn more about what it is I do or shop there. Go, explore, I'll be here!

The Maiden Voyage

Well, hello everybody! This is my first ever blog, so if it's weird or boring, forgive me. I'll get better with time.
I am a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I share what I love and love what I do. 
Our main topic in this blog will be:  STAMPING! I love stamping. Cards, scrapbook pages, gift packages and other things that will take ink from a stamp. I just finished my daughter's 4th birthday invitations, and I think I could have made them easier, but that's not how I roll. My husband had a few good ideas on simplifying the process, which I was very grateful for. Look out for a picture of the front soon! I'll start working on the party favors soon. My next project is a stamping night to meet my new neighbors, I'll let you know how that goes. Ah! Hubby needs me! So, until next time, keep on stamping!
