Stampin Up! Regionals

All I can think to say is WOWZA! An entire day of nothing but Stampin'! Does it get any better? Thought I'd let the pictures speak for themselves, some of the pictures aren't the best I think you'll get the idea though.

The promotions being offered thru Stampin' Up! right now makes this the best time to host a party. Take a look!

Keep checking back with over 150 pictures from Regionals I'll be posting lots of Stampin' Eye Candy.

A Few Cards

The rain this weekend gave me the opportunity to make a couple of cards. I used the Christmas Punch set with Night of Navy and white paper and white ink. I used Texturz Backgrounds on the top of the card, it's hard to see.

Here is another rainy day card, I used Eastern Bloom stamp set. My new favorite colors crushed curry, melon manbo ink and paper. I like this card.

Finally A Card!

Due to a lack of sunshine this weekend I found some MoJo and made a card. I actually like it, I am my worst critic and usually do not like my cards unless I CASE them from someone else.
I used-
  • Paper-Kraft, Crushed Curry and Melon Mambo
  • Ink-Chocolate Chip, Crushed Curry and Melon Mambo
  • Stamp Sets-Fundamental Phrases and Circle Circus
  • Accessories-Grosgrain Polka Dot Ribbon and Silver Brad

I love love love the new stamp set Circle Circus.

National Craft Month!

Not that I need any excuse to get my "craft on", but I love how there is a month dedicated to crafting. I often wonder what folks do that don't craft. I've been doing some type of crafting since I was a young child, I've tried a lot of things and I've not mastered any of them.

Here is a great site for craft ideas.

If you are looking for cards ideas to celebrate March you need Split Coast Stampers, save it to your favorites it changes daily.

How about some Creative Therapy to celebrate March?

Check out my new Stampin' Up site. Lots of great ideas for March.

While Stalking I Mean Reading

I decided to participate in MoJo Monday this week. I'm not crazy about the card, but here it is. I've used mostly Stampin' Up products.

I found this great tutorial for a page, using Stampin Up products. Thought I would share. Who doesn't love Ali Edwards and her magic?

New Room

I have started my new room and I love it. I have so much to still do. The curtains are from Old Time Pottery (they have polka dots not sure if you can tell that). I haven't found a desk yet, I will though. I have a vision of an old red door, Mr. Wonderful does not have the same vision. I love the color of the room. I finally got the cricut out of the box and I can't wait to use it. I am still trying to decide on a quote for the wall. I have so much stuff that still needs to be unpacked. We are going to add shelves three high all the way across the wall above the cricut counter. I am going to get new picture boxes, I think I am going to do red and white. I saw some with a pattern at JoAnn's this weekend I might mix it up I'm not sure.

Stop by Paper Glue Etc. for more updates on the room.

A Couple Cards

Kelly is having a paper crafting party, please join her!

I was able to get out today and have some "me time", I hung out with Blaise and made cards. She gave me some really fun stuff for future workshops and classes (I'll share in another post).

I made a couple of cards.

First card was made with Simply Said and the second card was made with Baroque Motifs. I love how they both turned out.

Craft Room

Ok, I have carried around a magazine for two years because I fell in love with the room. I want this room. I know I can't have it exactly, but I'm going to use the colors. Who would have thought of putting turquoise, crimson red, and chartreuss together. I love every bit of it. Mr. Wonderful is not eager to help in any way shape or form, he is in the dog house. Feel free to check out the article and more pictures. I have a chair and step stool, now to find the fabric to cover them in and yeah get Betsy to do the work for me...hmmmm.

Speaking of color do you like the blog? I saw Simply Chic Blogs over at my very pregnant friend's blog and decided to give it a try.

Stampin Up!

Happy New Year! I have decided to finally take the plunge and become a Stampin Up demonstrator. Mr. Wonderful says its just an excuse to hang out with Blaise (he is a smart man!), get a new craft room, buy lots of stamps, and get out of the house (did I mention he is pretty smart). I will be signing up 2/1/09 (they have a great special starting that date...). I will be spending the next month getting things ready, my new room, new checking account, new blog (I'm having a header and button made....Mr. Wonderful doesn't know that cost

Join this great cause and send a blessing to a sick child.

So stop by I'll be updating daily.
