Here is what the Easter Bunny (aka me) was busy doing at my house yesterday. Making millions and millions of little egg cartons with chicks on the outside (see the bunny came and made the chicks...Oh, jokes aren't funny if you have to explain them?? Darn it all!). Really, there weren't millions of cartons, but I cut out so many chicks and eggs I sure felt like it! I made these fun little festive egg cartons to sell at my local (and favorite-est ever!) coffee stand- Cuppa Jo on the Go. I filled some with grass and chocolates and some with jellybeans- yum! They are so cute and they looked great with all the pastel colors in the basket. :)

You might be reading this, but maybe you are just a blurfer (surf the blogs & look at pics but don't read). Admittedly, I do that much of the time, but I do like to stop sometimes, especially at those peoples blogs I like, and read a bit. I have found a few times with the blogs I frequent I have made some friends or blogging buddies. That has been fun as some of the folks I really enjoy are in different parts of the Country- Texas, NY, IL, etc- so I get to hear about their different lives and different weather and different inspiration and what not. I encourage you to go out and read one or two entries (if you are even reading this! wink!) and see who is out there. Ha! That just reminded me of the Elmo video my daughter loves about making friends, they have a song about meeting people, "Stick out your hand and say hello!" Good lord, I am at work and all I can think about is stamping and muppets (or muffets as Sophie calls them)! Ah well, I am using the old noggin' just maybe not in the preferred way at this time. :)
Meanwhile, I should get back to work, but just wanted to put this little ditty up, the card we made at Berni's workshop last weekend. Again, REALLY crappy picture, but you get the idea right?! I love this set Happy Moments from the Sale-a-bration catalog, it is really fun to do paper piecing with it.
Thank you so much for stopping by, it really means a lot to me that people look and leave comments. Have an ever so lovely Wednesday!

Happy St. Patrick's day all, may the luck of the Irish be with you. This card I made at Tracy's house for her Stampin' Up! Party, this was the make n' take. We used the heart from the Hello Again Stamp set to make the 4 leaf clover. So Easy, so fun!
Anyway, gotta run to a stamp event, but thanks for stopping by! :)

Obviously, February has come and gone and I didn't get my newsletter out, sorry. February was fun filled though, I enjoyed making valentines for the kiddos in Sophie's class with Berni (my friend and Mom of Sophie's friend Ashley) and some for my family as well. You can see those cards and other projects on my blog- http://www.kbstamps.blogspot.com/. Unfortunately, I didn't even get to look at the Feb. newsletter to see what fabo projects were on there, oh well. This one is great though, did you see the cards ala carte set- great for those who like to host formal dinner parties or potentially for a wedding dinner menu or the like.
Meanwhile, you probably noticed that Sale-a-bration (SAB) is still going on, but only through the end of March. I have two workshops planned and a class, if you are interested in attending one of these, let me know. However, if you want to do something on your own, with your friends, there is still time, so contact me to sign up. I can earn SAB benefits too and I am happy to say that thus far, I have earned 4 stamp sets, 1 paper pack and a punch- go me! Don't miss out on this easy opportunity for free stuff!
March is all about St. Patrick' Day right!?! Well here are a few tips for you to make some easy special cards or other project embelishments. #1 - Take 4 hearts, any style or size, punch or cut out stamped image and put the points together to make a four leaf clover! So easy, so cute! (I have a sample I hope to post tonight) #2- if you have the Cheers to You stamp set (or anything with a beer mug in it) simply color it green for some green beer- yum! Great idea for a more masculine card or if you are planning on throwing a party.
Thursday, I am heading to Canon Beach for a 4 day weekend with my family, my Mom and her Hubby. I am so looking forward to a break from "reality". Hoping to take lots of pictures of the kiddo and fam for scrapbook pages and hoping to find lots of Ocean inspriation! I hope I have enough room in the suitcase for all my SU! supplies! ;)
Happy March Y'all!

I joined Stampin' Up! with out thinking twice. Someone in my office was a demo, and although I hadn't done a lot of stamping before, I always loved to craft and be creative. It was during SAB and I the discount and extra stamp set were an easy sell to me. In fact, the demonstrator didn't ask me to sign up, I asked her! :)
I had recently had my lovely little daughter and she was precious and perfect, I wanted to get in to scrapbooking and stamping to preserve those memories. I later realized, I also wanted to do it to get a little part of "me" back, a little time for myself to decompress or focus on something I wanted to focus on. I found that the more I stamped and scrapped the more I loved it. It was/is addicting to create, especially cards, you can have a finished product in a short amount of time with limited supplies, how wonderful it felt to have acomplished something. Even better I began to share my new love with family & friends, mostly I just give away the cards and books I make, or brag and show off the scrapbook pages of my Sophie (my daughter), but I also enjoy offering classes and showing others how much fun it can be so if they find this experience empowering as I did, they can do it too.
I have found that there is always more and more product I want- thank goodness for the demo discount! I am lucky to have signed up with Stampin' Up! who has such high quality product. I love learning to use each product and am finding that the possiblities of what can be done are endless. I feel that becoming a Stampin' Up! demonstrator has helped give me a sense of self and helps me to feel more confident in my life.
Thanks for stopping by today, hope you enjoyed!
