Customer Showcase

My friend Julie is so talented! We met in massage school and after she graduated I learned that she has been scrapbooking for a long time- some of her pages reflecting our school experience were great! She has recently started working on cards and I wanted to show some here. This first card is for Mom's day...

This second card is a birth announcement. I have to brag here because this sweet girl is MY DAUGHTER! :) :)

Julie does such a nice job! Check her out on Etsy-
She just had a workshop at her house and got over $100 in FREE STUFF! Go Jules! So I think you will be see some new stuff with some of her fun new Stampin' Up! products.

To join: Four individuals sign up for the club. We will meet monthly or every other month, whichever the club decides.

Here’s how it works: Club members take turns “hostessing” and receiving benefits. Each person receives one set of markers (12 colors) and one pack of cardstock each month, and the person “hosting” the workshop receives the hostess benefits and the marker carrying case. At the end of 4 months, everyone has a complete set of markers (48), a carrying case, cardstock to match, a hostess-only stamp set, $15 in FREE merchandise, and 4 new techniques using your markers.

In Love

Did I mention how in love with my family I am? I love this scrapbook page. I made this using Stampin' Up! simply scrapin kit, it was so easy. Look how fun and lovely they are! Ahhh....


This project was great fun. You can get these tiles and then use your stamps with StazOn ink pads. StazOn can be used on all types of nonpourus surfaces.

Wild About You!

I love this stamp set, it is so much fun; I enjoyed making this card. :)

Two by Two

Now that my feet are wet I am ready to dive in head first. Here are some of my recent creations, don't they say good things come in twos?

This stamp set is the current Ronald McDonald House set at Stampin' Up! $2 dollars from every purchase of this set goes to benefit the Ronald McDonald House.

You could say this set is "Unfrogettable," I definitely think so!

Spring Fling

So I am a newbie at all this Stampin' Up! stuff and not sure how to navigate the system, so just trying to figure it out when my upline tells me about Spring Fling. All the SB Stampers (Seattle Based) get together and have demos, training, meet friends and do some make and takes. So fun, here is what we made:

this super cute photo holder (have a pic of my baby in mine!) and finally...

fun scrapbook page!
