FALL in Love with Stamping!

I am so excited for my upcoming workshop! I'm calling it Thanksgiving Table. Why? Because my customers and friends will get to make 3 quick, easy, gorgeous projects to enhance their upcoming Thanksgiving table setting. They'll get to make a place card, a napkin ring and a treat dish for just $10 using exclusive Stampin' Up! products. Take a look at the pic above--these are two of the projects! I just know that you will FALL in love with stamping if you come and join us!!! I'll post project instructions after my workshop. Happy stamping!

Branching Out

As I've said in my profile, I love crafting of many types. One particular thing that is 2nd to my stamping is jewelry making. It's just cheaper to make it yourself and then when you give a gift of something you've made, it gives an extra WOW factor. The jewelry pictured above was made for my sister's birthday. The whole set cost me about $15 to make! But you know what, if you went to a store, that set would cost upwards of $50! So, here's my challenge to you: FIND A NEW CRAFT AND TRY IT! I promise it's easy and you will find it really rewarding! Let me know if you want to go make jewelry with me--I'm up for it!!!

Double Take

I love spur of the moment projects! When my mom called me up and asked if I could make her a birthday card to give to a good friend, of course I jumped at the chance! She came over and when she saw one of my cards, she really wanted one exactly like it but with a different color scheme. It was so fun to be able to make a copy of something I already created--and I got to share the layout with someone else and made it just for them! I hope you take the chance to make this card--but make it your own so you can have your own double take! Happy stamping!!!!!

Happy Birthday to....

YOU! Everyday can be a birthday when you create new cards--because you're creating new things that have never existed! That's part of why I do what I do. I love the feeling I get when I create a card that NO ONE has ever made! I recently made these birthday cards for people that are dear to my heart. I hope you take the opportunity to create for those you love daily! Happy Stamping!

A Boo-tiful Thing

Well, it's that time again. FALL!!! I love fall because we have awesome holidays during this season. First up is Labor Day (blessed day of no work!) then comes Columbus Day and then....HALLOWEEN! I just love Halloween! It's so much fun to have kids come to your door and see everyone's costumes. I also love snitching candy from the candy bowl. :) But I really adore the wonderful stamps that Stampin' Up! has come out with this season. The projects above are for this year's Trick-or-Treat workshop. Have a boo-tiful day, and as always, happy stamping!
