Kinda, fun and scrappy!

So this card uses a Project Life Card. I did what we call collage stamping with the different stamps in this set. I love the sentiment "A little Kindness goes a long way" I really do believe this.

As part of the requirements for the display samples, we needed to create a few scrapbook pages. I love how this one turned out. It's always amazing to see all the different ways you can use things. I really like how I used the starburst and punched it out with a scallop circle. The creativity never ends!!!

Ahoy, it's Amazing Birthday!!!

It's time for some more Amazing Birthday. This stamp set is so versatile. I really, really like how this card turned out. The color scheme is fresh, but different.

Next we have the same stamp set used on a scrapbook page. Once again, the versatility of this stamp set is awesome. This isn't a birthday page at all, but the saying, "Make Today Ridiculously Amazing" still works!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stamping!!

Seasonally Scattered

Seasonally Scattered was a stamp featured in the Holiday Catalog. I found this stamp set to be extremely difficult to work with. It was hard for me to "think outside the box" with this one.

I am pleased with what I came up with however.

The Stamp set had a "thanks", "Merry" and "Love" in it. This one is probably my favorite by far. Once again, I also used the 2014-2016 In Colors. I love how they lend themselves towards fall.

Kinda Ecletic!!

Today's featured stamp set is Kinda Eclectic!

So I have to admit, I was afraid of this stamp set when I first saw it. It's not my style, but I decided to jump in and see what I could create. This card turned out to be one of my favorite.

I decided I really like the butterfly images in this stamp set. I also love the rainbow look. It just shouts happy and cheerful!!

Happy Stamping!

Convention 2014 Display Stamper!!

So as I've been going through things, I realized that I've never posted my display samples from Convention 2014 last year. I thought over the next few days, I would show you my samples. It was a such a fun opportunity to create with product that was brand new and never before viewed. Most of it is retired product now, but you'll still get the viewing pleasure.

We were given three different stamp sets to use. 

Today's stamp set is Amazing Birthday

When I saw this stamp set and how well it coordinated with the banner framelits, I just knew I had to make a birthday banner.

Up close detail of the different parts.

The colors are the 2014-2016 In Colors. Those little paper clips were my favorite. So sad they're gone.:(

Very Fun!!

Project Life 12x12

Good Afternoon! I apologize for my absence. I got very sick last week and couldn't quite get my ducks in a row. Anyway, I'm doing much better and hope to get back into the swing of things.

Today's post is showcasing the 12x12 project life.

As you can see, it's a very simple thing to get your pictures into a format where they can be viewed by all. I mostly used pictures with a couple of journaling cards in there.

This one is of my daughter playing at a children's museum with her brothers. Once again very simple, yet fun to look at.

There are many different layouts to choose from. If you purchase the Variety Pack, it gives you lots of different options.

This picture is to show you that even though you may be someone who loves to do regular scrapbook layouts, you can easily incorporate your 12x12 PL into the regular book. 

Project Life is perfect for those random pictures that you have sometimes. They don't quite have a home because there may be only one or two. 

I would recommend you give it a try. You just might find you really like it.

Thanks for stopping by and

Happy Stamping!!!

It's a catalog open house!!

One of my most favorite times of the year is when we have a new catalog come out! I love to look through a brand new catalog. I don't know how you do it, but I first look at all the stamp sets. Then I go back through it again and look at the accessories. Then it's through a third time for all of the beautiful samples and so on and so on.

Today was my catalog open house. Of course, we handed out catalogs and drooled over them. We also had two make n takes that I provided to showcase new product.

To introduce the new 2015-2017 In Colors, we made this book mark. It was cased from Carrie Cudney who is a Stampin' Up Home office big wig. It features the new In colors as well as a new stamp set and some beautiful lace ribbon. 
SPOILER ALERT: The "flag" at the end of the bookmark is PERFECT!!!! It really gives a nice PUNCH don't you think?

Our second project was a card. When I saw this stamp set, I was in LOVE!!! It is such a cute stamp set and I'm sure there are so many things you can do with it. This card also shows us some new Washi Tape and some new DSP.

Have a great day!
Happy Stamping!
