Just over a week ago, I went down to Portland for a Stampin' up! Regional seminar. I really enjoyed myself even though I went absolutely alone. Usually I go with other demonstrators that I know, but this time, I knew not a soul. I found a table with 5 or 6 other demonstrators, 2 of whom were also alone... It was great to meet them. Part of the fun of seminars is when we trade cards or items. I have a few items to show you, but first I will show the card front I made.

I used the French Foliage set from the Holiday Mini, and watercolor crayons. I did all this the night before and actually put them together while we were driving down to Portland (actually Salem, where we stayed with family)
I will show a few more samples made with this set, they are absolutely gorgeous, and show such a variety of uses. Call me if you are interested in getting this set, I know someone who can hook you up! LOL
Happy Stamping!

Late Happy Thanksgiving!

As we have just finished Thanksgiving celebrations here in Canada, I want to still wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving. I hope your celebrations were as great as ours!
Here's a beautiful Stampin' Up! card to help inspire you! I wish I stamped as well as the designers they have working for them!

The gorgeous flower and leaf designs from the Day Of Gratitude set are stamped in rich autumn colours, making this card a picture perfect Thanksgiving greeting.

Tone-on-tone leaves stamped in the background on a print from our Autumn Spice Specialty Designer Series paper give it wonderfully-worn look that complements the rustic floral focal piece splendidly.
These items are available in the Holiday Mini Catalogue

Colour combo used: Cajun Craze, Old Olive, Naturals Ivory and More Mustard.

WOW - I've been MIA! New Catalog has arrived!

I feel so bad! But I also havent been stamping. It has just been too hectic. I have to say, with so many people asking, I am planning some classes again for the Fall.

The new catalog is also very inspiring! Want one??? I have them at my place, Just $12 each. If you are still looking for last year's copy, I am selling them for $7each and I only have a few left.
Over the next couple of weeks (and I can't promise that it will be daily) whenever I have a few minutes, I will feature some of the new products here. Many of you may have heard by now, the 48 colors have been re-vamped. This will be my first feature, so watch for it soon!
Happy Stamping!
