Project Life Framelits

Sorry for the blogging break — life took over and I'm playing catch up.  I'll do my best to post regularly again.

Have you heard all about Project Life yet?  It's a quick & easy way to get your memories captured into a scrapbook.  Stampin' Up! has teamed up with Becky Higgins, the creator of Project Life and is now carry exclusive Project Life items.  This month I held a class featuring the Project Life Card & Labels Framelits Dies.  These framelits are for so much more than scrapbooking. 

Here is one of the cards that we made at class. 
Project Life Framelits CandlesThis card uses the Cycle Celebration stamp set (I've had this for a while but never used it — and now I'm loving it).  I stamped the "Happy Birthday to You" and then used the framelits to cut it out.

Don't forget, the new Stampin' Up! catalog begins next Monday, June 2nd.  The full line of Project Life is in the catalog.  If you don't have a catalog yet send me an email and I'll let you know how you can get one.



Lantern Birthday Wishes

  Birthday LanternsThis is another card we made at my Anniversary Party Sunday.  I love these lanterns — it really reminds me of summer camping.  Yes, we use to hang the lights around the screen room at night.  The designer paper is the Fresh Prints from the Occasions Catalog — this paper is so much fun to work with — I love the color combinations.

Check out this week's "WEEKLY DEALS".  Remember you can shop for these items from my Online Store or send me an email.

Anniversary Party

Sunday I celebrated my 10th Anniversary as an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator – WOW, how time flies.  I have loved every minute of it.

I had an anniversary party to celebrate the day — 22 stampers attended (21 ladies and my first gentleman).  We had a great day — look at all the fun everyone had.

Don't they look like they are having fun.  My husband even came along with his new sharpening system and sharpened everyone's Stampin' Up! Paper Snips.      Tony SharpeningWe raised $500 to be donated to "Kids with Autism Can".

Here's one of the cards everyone made. Simple Stem MonstersI saw many samples of these fun guys on Pinterest and other sites and I couldn't resist — I just LOVE this card and so did the rest of the stampers.  Many ordered the Simple Stems and Yippee Skippee stamp set so they can make more of these — the inside of the card says "I FREAKIN' LOVE YOU".  So much fun — come back tomorrow for more of the cards we made.
