PPA 26 Anything but a card and Megan's 13th Birthday

O.k. It looks like I am not wanting to do the card challenges, but I just haven't had a chance. I started this blog to post (at least) weekly....I am NOT doing a good job. Today starts a new week and I am going to do better! This item was a fun thing for me to do, Megan, my oldest turned 13!!! Yikes! I made two party favors for her party. The first thing I did was a little party bag with a Bath and Body works lotion. I used the Big Shot, the Big Shot top note, the medium cello bag, the scalloped punch, Baroque Motifs Stamp set and Regal Rose Ink pad. I love this, the girls did too. This is actually something that I am going to do for friends every once in a while. It's a neat little gift. The second thing that I made was a little candy bag. I used the Big Shot, the Big XL die Bag w/scallops, Scalloped punch, Regal Rose and Kiwi Kiss (last season In color) Ink Pad, Baroque Motifs and the Itty Bitty Buds stamp set. The Itty Bitty Buds was one of last years SAB sets that I earned free by purchasing $50.00....Love me a deal! I used it to make my own printed paper. I hope that you like it, I loved making them. Stayed tuned for my next post...

PPA 23-Anything but a card!

This is my first time doing ANY challenge. I need to work on my photo skills, but hey it will come with time. This is a layout that I did of some of our Disney Pics. I used SU Old Olive and Chocolate Chip Paper and ink. The SU Polka Dot Punches Set (which I love b/c it matches up so good with the punches) and the Scalloped Punch. I also used a chocolate chip corduroy brad and two die cuts from The Write Stuff Specialty DSP. I am excited, this is my first of MANY challenges. Thanks for looking!

First Post and the NEW catalogs....

Yea! I have finally done it....I have a blog!!! This blog is for me, I guess you could say it was/is a resolution. I have been a scrapbooker for MANY MANY years and I am starting to incorporate Stamping into it. Almost a year ago, I joined Stampin Up as a Hobby Demo and I love it. Even though I am a "Hobby Demo", I do have a few customers and that's great, so if anyone else out there needs anything, please let me know. To the right you will see the NEW 2010 Occaions Mini Catalog and the SAB Catalog. ***Please note: These do not start until January 5th. Stampin Up has released early due to a delay in them being mailed. To my peeps out there that I always give one too...I will let you know as soon as I have them. I started this blog to be able to keep a history of my projects. I want to participate in some contest and challenges and I think this will be just right. I hope that you enjoy checking out my projects as much as I enjoy making them.
