Hi Everyone,

Well I'm all ready for a fun day tomorrow with many stamping friends. I have a Spring off those winter blues stamp-a-stack Sunday afternoon. I'm so thrilled with all of the wonderful products in the Occasions catalog as well as the Sale-a-Bration catalog well of course who doesn't love free products. I'm giving a sneak peek at the five projects for tomorrow. I love all of them. I can't decide which I love most. Vote for yours and let me know. If you want to come but live to far away, just let me know. I'm happy to make a set of the stamp-a-stack cards and send them to you. I would charge $15.00 since I have to ship them to you.

Crisp Cantaloupe is a striking with the black cardstock.
The Sheer Perfection Designer Series Vellum Stack.
New free product during Sale-a-Bration

Who wouldn't love this cute bunny. This is from the
Happy Easter stamp. The flower Wreath
was omitted so I could have the fun bunny and Happy Day.

The Painted Petal DSP is so great!
The bird is from A Happy Thing from Sale-a-Bration.

A Sheltering Tree stamp set is so popular. I really like
using the little pennants to add more flare to the card.

This card is simply beautiful. I used the Painted Petals stamp set and
the Spring Flowers Textured impressions embossing folder. So beautiful.

 
The weeks are counting down to the end of Sale-A-Bration. If you haven't gotten all the free things you wanted, don't wait. There is still time. I know you love these projects I'm sharing, so don't hesitate to contact me for how to get these products to make them on your own.
 
Happy Stampin'

Hi Everyone,

What a fun night with my Tuesday night stamping class. We focused on the wonderful Butterfly Basics Stamp set from the Occasions Catalog. We also used the Butterflies Thinlits Dies to coordinate with our projects. I wanted to share our last project with all of you because it was a "let's make up" a new project using the Artisan Embellishment kit and our Butterfly stamp set and dies. Here are some pictures of the cards my stamping ladies came up with as well as my stamping cat.



Wow, what happened?




Jessica's cards have a clean line style.
 I like how she doubled
 her butterfly on the yellow base.

Bunny did a great job with the Blackberry
Bliss shading.

 As you know creative minds are seldom neat, so you can see my stamping spot is quite messy after that creative session on an additional project. So the Artisan Embellishment Kit is a neat product, but you only get 2 rose cut outs. So I decided to use the cut outs as a template. We used Blackberry Bliss and Hello Honey card stock colors as well as matching ribbons. We then used sponge daubers to add the color. I love the different layout and styles of each of the gals. We surely fed off each other and gave ideas too. Which do you like? I bet several!
 
This was my Hello Honey flower stencil. I really like the Happy Birthday
 stamp from the Butterfly Basics stamp set.
This design was created by getting my fingerprints on the white cardstock so I had to trim it down. Christi called it a "happy mistake". I couldn't agree more.



This is Kaycah. This was a perfect time for a picture.
 She is ready to stamp.
 
 I wanted to share a video by Stampin' Up! featuring the Butterfly Basics stamp set and thinlits.

 
I hope you like the wax paper trick. I've been using dryer sheets as well. I guess that's it for now, but be sure to get in touch to host a party or place an order. This is the last month for free Sale-a-Bration products. Take a look at the benefits of hosting a party of your own. It's the perfect time to get people together to share and create fun projects. Remember during Sale-a-Bration for every $50.00 you choose one free Sale-a-Bration product.
 
 


I hope you enjoyed the samples from our creative last project from class. It was really fun to share ideas and make such beautiful cards. Check out my demonstrator website for more information.

Happy Stampin'

Hi Everyone,

It's hard to believe that March is upon us. The weather has been great, and I'm getting excited for springtime stamping. Stampin' Up! has surprised us with 4 new Sale-a-Bration products for the month of March. You can earn any item for free with a $50.00 purchase. Take a look at the newest items.

 
 
I have to tell you that my daughter Julianne has been accepted into several colleges she has applied for. She has done Running Start for 2 years and will have an associate's degree in June. I think Running Start is so great for kids who don't quite think high school is so great. She has some decisions to make. I love these couple of photos that her friend took of her for senior pictures. Which do you like best?
 
This would definitely get cropped. She loves this car.

This one to me is so great! I love her smile.
I can't believe that she is graduating and soon to be off to college. Her sister, Sam, will certainly miss getting rides from Julianne. They are also great friends. Samantha is still dancing. This is her 11th year of dance at Irene's School of Dance and DAT. She keeps me busy with all that dancing.
 
I finished my video of the Balloon Bash stamp set and the Irresistibly Yours DSP. I hope you enjoy it.
 
 
Happy Stampin'
Mary
