New way of life with Stampin' Up!

I was fortunate enough to be able to listen to the webinar last night with Shelly Gardner herself regarding the new IDE and I'm really glad I did. It cleared up a lot of questions and am glad to know that I can still be a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. The only change I've had to make to my blog site is removing many of my favorite inspirational blogsites. I've kept them in my personal favorites, but because they promote other products, I'm no longer able to share them with you. For anyone reading this that's not an SU! Demonstrator, this won't make sense so don't worry about it. For anyone that is a Demonstrator, before you get mad at SU!, read up on all the posted information at the Demonstrator web site (just not in Stampin! Discuss). There's an awful lot of mis-information out there. To make it short, this was done to help promote our business, not to tie our hands. We can still use product that isn't SU!, but we can't be specific about what it is or where to buy it.

Anyway, just had to get this off my chest. I've been on vacation (from work anyway) this week and am getting my stamping legs back under me this weekend. I should be posting again soon. Trying to get everything organized which has only taken me 51 darned years to do, lol. Take care everyone and make it a great day!!

Mojo Monday Week 83




Well, with less than 24 hours left, I finally made my Mojo Monday Week 83 creation. I've had a pretty busy week at work and had no time to play...sigh. So much to do...so little time :)
CS is Chocolate Chip, and Baja Breeze, Designer Paper Parisian Breeze, no ink whatsoever, Big Shot, and Big Shot die Flower Daisies 2 using Parisian Breeze again with a button in the middle and two Summer Love Rub on's from the Occasions Mini Catalog. I had actually started using plain CS and stamping and just couldn't get the look I wanted. Goes to show you, you don't always have to stamp to get an awesome look. Well, at least the look I like :) Happy day everyone

This is one of my favorite stamp sets from the current SU! catalog. I love Baja Blue and Chocolate Chip together and I LOVE Parisian Breeze DSP and the corduroy buttons. Yummy! Happy almost tax day

MojoMonday


Sorry, I goofed and posted Mojo Monday's link to my blog versus this spot in my blog. My apologies everyone.

I used no stamps this week, just the SU! Designer Paper Walk in the Park with rub ons from Summer Love in the Occasions Mini . Gotta love that Occassions Mini!!! I used Kiwi Kiss, Baja Blue and Basic Grey CS. Kiwi Kiss ribbon with the grey butterfly from the rub on's placed on Kiwi Kiss then cut out.

I hope all who celebrated Easter or Passover were able to spend time with those they love as I was fortunate enough to do. Just missing my girl who's in England serving in the U.S. Air Force. Miss my girl! But I was able to be with her sister, brother in law and brother. And that ham was amazing, yum, yum. Take care all!

Today's card

This is for a co-worker leaving to take some time and be with family. I thought this was appropriate. Have a great day all

Wow and thank you!

I am overwhelmed with the comments and emails received on my first card post. Thank you everyone for your very kind words. They inspire me to keep on stamping. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Now, I just need to find my "real" camera so I can take pictures more easily. Enjoy your evening everyone! :-)

MojoMonday






I'm so excited to submit my first MojoMonday project. I need to get a photo cube to take really awesome pictures, and I guess finding my darned camera would help as well, but using my webcam should work for now. Please let me know what you think and thanks for visiting my new blog!
