I love snow. That’s really my only complaint about living in Arkansas—not enough snow! So even a small amount brings joy. It is snowing like crazy at my house right now 🙂 I just had to go out and get a picture. This is when the snow had just started. Hopefully we’ll get a sizeable amount, or at least enough to make snow cream!
After I took my pic, I decided to share it with you on a page I made using My Digital Studio. It is such an easy scrapbooking tool! Pages come together much quicker for me digitally than otherwise. I know some of you really want that Scrapbook to hold in your hand…and I like that too for some projects. But I find creating digital scrapbooks allows my pictures to find a home faster. I can always print or have them printed and if I want I can embellish them further after I print.
I hope you get a chance to enjoy the gift of snow that God has given us today. And if not, just be sure to thank Him for the other multitude of blessings you have recieved!
I know it is August, but I fell in love with this card the moment I saw it in the 2010-2011 idea book & catalog. Our demonstrators group had already planned on doing a swap with a card CASEd from the new catty. I just had to duplicate this one. It took me a long time to mass produce it…so many details! But I am very pleased with the end result. Maybe its not too early to start listening to Christmas music after all…
My husband needed a gift for a coworker’s baby shower today. I made the cutest little card for this baby boy….and forgot to get a pic before he left. Ugh. Anyway, here’s a card for a little girl that is very similar. It is made with the Fast & Fun Notes stamp set. I haven’t used this set much since I got it over a year ago, but it is growing on me. I should probably challenge myself to make a card with each stamp in the set and see how creative I can be….hmmm. I’ll post what I come up with if I take myself up on that challenge. Hope you have a chance to stamp today!
I wanted to share this card that I made today. I love how the cute little plaid flowers turned out. Come to my next workshop & I’ll show you how to do this technique. Its been very hot this week and I have gotten to spend a lot of time in my craft room. Yay! Creating always makes me happy. It also means that I have a lot more cards to post. I’ll share more with you tomorrow.
Last month I had to have surgery on my right shoulder. For 4 weeks I wasn’t even allowed to move it. That sort of put a halt on my stamping for a while. I am pleased to announce that surgery went better than expected & I am on the road to recovery. I still have 2 months before I can start any strengthening exercises, and my range of motion is still limited, but I am having less pain and increased movement every day.
Needless to say, I am anxious to be stamping again. I have already scheduled 2 classes for June and I am so excited. I hope you’ll be able to join me for one or both of them!
I am also excited about the changes that are happening at Stampin’ Up these days. We are saying goodbye to the retiring items in June and preparing for the new catalog that will be available July 1st. There are exciting changes taking place in the Stampin’ Up color palettes, and of course its always exciting to see what the new stamp sets will include.
I will be posting pictures of scrapbook pages and recent cards in the next few days so check back soon.
Finally a Saturday at home! We travel so much this time of year with Andrew’s gymnastic competitions. It’s nice to relax at the house for a change. Next week we’re off again to Dallas. I’m not complaining, I love to watch him compete!
I am preparing for an upcoming workshop. Thought things were pretty well lined out already, but some shipping issues (ugh!) have caused me to rethink some things. Wanted to share some of my projects with you 🙂
This is the top note box which uses the top note die & the Big Shot. They are so cute and not difficult to make.
I can’t tell you what’s inside though—it’s a surprise. Come to the workshop Thursday and you may have a chance to see 🙂
I also made this Valentine card…
If you like what you see & you want to join me Thursday for some crafty fun you can go here to view my calendar and get the details.
What a great weekend we had just relaxing with family. Our friend Joel from Missouri stopped by to visit too. Now it is back to the work/school week. I have been working many hours in my craft room the last several days to prepare swap items for the Stampin Up conference this Friday! So excited about going & about getting to see my family in Indiana. Excited about my craft room too. It is almost done. Now the challenge is organizing & rearranging all my stuff! That will take me a while I’m afraid. I promised my family I would have the ping pong table cleared off by Christmas 🙂 I seriously hope it doesn’t take that long! I’ll try to post some more pics of the room & my projects soon.
