Updates are on the way!

Some many things are going on right now! Family events, school is back in session for me and Austin starts next week. There are great new products and I have some new catalogs to post. A new look for my website is on the way and I am looking forward to a huge scrapbook and papercraft sale in Septemeber. More information will be posted as to the exact day and time. Until then, here is the babyshower card I made for our cousins Tim and Jen, who look forward to their arrival of Reese in September! We also had a couple birthdays over the summer, so I hope you enjoy the all-star card I created! Be back soon!

Good Friend Mini Album

This month I decided to try a mini album using the cutest SU stamp set called, "Good Friend." Here is the cover and the papers behind are a sample of the color palette throughout this little album. Just email me if you would like to see the inside. I made up a couple extra kits if you would like to purchase one for your own pictures. We will be gathering for a workshop this Sunday at my house and you are welcome to join the fun! Talk to you soon and happy scrapping!

Simply Garden Note Cards

Okay, I already posted a layout I made with the Simply Garden Kit pieces I gave at the May workshop, so now I decided to use the remaining pieces to make 8 note cards. Between the 12x12 layout below and the 8 cards here, all I added to the items I gave in the kits were 2 pieces of 12x12 barely banana card stock and 8 note cards. I still have some left over scraps so I can make additional flowers or add embellishments to my layout when I add the pictures. I hope you like them and I am still waiting to see what some of you who attended the workshop created with your kit. Happy Scrapping!!!

May Workshop Layout Idea

Those who attended the National Scrapbook workshop received a layout kit from the Simply Scrapin' Garden Kit, as well as an idea sheet from Stampin'Up! and a page of sample layouts. This is one of the layouts and I just added a couple of personal touches. I still have plenty of paper and die cuts left to make additional pages or cards. I used Barely Banana paper. The hand doodles were done with Always Artichoke and I stamped the title with the Time Well Spent stamp set. I also stamped on the paper, but it is a little light in the photo. Also, I usually doodle a little more after my pictures are added and our sticky die cuts can be moved around as well. Keep in mind though,glue dots and other adhesives are not as forgiving.

I hope you enjoy it and please make sure to send me pictures of your layouts as well. (More to come with the leftovers....)

Cute Card for BABY

I was working on a couple layouts for a baby shower card and saw a cute design on Hana Stamps. I thought I would give it a try with some of our stampin'Up! products. I just love this stripped paper and the color family. I hope you like the card too. With this paper the color combinations are endless!! (This was a quick sample so please excuse my lack of perfectionism!!!

Baby Shower for Grandpa

On Thursday we had a little baby shower celebration for one of my office co-workers. He is going to be a first time grandpa and is excited to be expecting his first granddaughter, Parker Alanis. We thought it would be fun to have a little party for him and because he lives and breathes soccer in his spare time we decided to make everything with a soccer theme. He loved the cards and I hope you do too! I had fun using the new Stampin'Up texture plates to and I liked making the soccer balls in 3D as well. We will be using the new texture plates at my workshop on Saturday, February 28. Just email me for more details or to RSVP your spot! Thanks for looking!

This is only the beginning!

Hello, I am new to blogging and looking forward to creating a site with fun ideas for stamping, scrap booking and paper crafting. I hope you will share with me too!

I am currently a Stampin'Up Consultant, but I have been scrapping and stamping for years. I guess I should have started with a company back when my husband and I married in 1991, because I probably would have turned my business into a profitable fortune by now. Either way, I still love what I do and would love to share with you.

I will be back soon to post my artwork here, because I loving creating many things such as cards, scrapbook pages and framed art. I love paper crafting! Don't get me wrong, digital is fun too, but after looking at a computer screen all day, I enjoy sitting with friends and family while we create fun and simple paper craft projects.

I will be back to share more about my love of stamping, scrapping and paper crafting and I hope you will be back to see more as well.

Take care!!
