I love what I do and one of my favorite things is to plan projects for Stampin' Up! Parties and classes.  There are so many ideas it is hard to narrow it down.   In July I featured the stamp set Friends are Forever.  Just imagine being able to enjoy sitting down and stamping a card for your good friend.  Think how special she will feel when she opens it and knows that in your busy life you took time to stamp her a card, just for her.  No matter if you are an expert stamper or new to stamping a Stampin' Up! party attending a party and making a hand stamped card is always fun.  Be sure and check out my calendar of events to attend an upcoming class or book your own party today, your friends will thank you for years to come!

My downline The Definitely Diva Stampers are amazing!  We had our quarterly Stamp &

At Stampin’ Up!®, color is an important part of our identity.   It’s fundamental to your ability to create and be creative. That also means that it’s important for you to be able to stay up-to-date with the trends in color to keep your artwork fresh and exciting.   That’s why Stampin' Up! has worked so hard to present you with the Color Renovation— a refreshing, updated color palette!

I just can't pull myself away from my computer and stop creating with My Digital Studio.   I not only have a great collection of new scrapbooks and calendars but a few dust bunnies too!  The dust bunnies can wait for I know they won't go anywhere. 

I noticed a benefit this week that I hadn't expected, after using My Digital Studio I feel more confident while creating  traditional scrap books.  I made two traditional 6 x 6 wedding albums this week.  I hope to share one tomorrow since the shower is today so I won't be spoiling the surprise for the bride (oh I think I am a poet too!)

Watch this great video by Stampin' Up! to be inspired to get you copy ASAP!   If you enjoy your computer you will love this great way to create and cherish memories for many years to come.



Here is a page from one of my Calendars I created…
Can you guess what month it is?

When the Stampin' Up! wall decor came out I knew right away I needed the Tree Thoughts and Prayers.  I had a date already set to have everyone come over and watch me apply the Decor Element to my wall, when I noticed I had ordered the black instead of the chocolate.  The chocolate tree arrived and time seemed to slip by I kept asking myself do I want it here or here?

You know how one thing leads to another… a new wall decor, new area rug, new furniture you know how it goes.  So one Saturday evening my hubby and I along with the directions of our daughter decided to put up the new decor elements.   I have been anxious to share it with you all.  

What do you think?
