Apothecary Art Stamp Set

Apothecary Art Stamp Set has matching dies for the Big Shot and can be found in Stampin' Up!'s new Occasion Mini Catalog.  Did you receive a copy of the mini in the mail?  If not, and you would like a copy, let me know and I will get a copy out to you.  Lisa Brown a downline member created this beautiful Christmas Card using this beautiful new set.


Christmas Lodge Stamp Set

Sure is going to be hard to say goodbye to the Christmas Lodge stamp set in Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Mini.  Sure hope it appears in the new catalog next year.  This beautiful card was done by Jenny Watson a downline member.  This card is so stunning.  She used a dryer sheet and then dazzling diamonds on top.


Tasteful Trim Bigs XL Die

So love this card created by a downline member Amanda Mascia.  She used the Tasteful Trim Die for the Big Shot for the side scallops.  I took her idea and created a card that my customers will be making at my upcoming Mystery Hostess on Jan. 28th.  Watch in the next couple days and I will show you the sample I came up with using Sale-a-Bration and Occassion Mini products.  THANKS Amanda for the inspiration.


Northern Flurry Embossing Folder

I so love when I get a card from a customer and they used a technique that I taught them.  This card was done by Emmalu McIlwain and she used the brayer on her embossing folder.  I also love the Rich Razzleberry color, as it is normally not a color you think about at Chrsitmas.


Comfort & Joy

Thought I would share some of the beautiful Christmas Cards I am receiving from customers and downline.  This card was done by a dear customer Lori Slimmer.  She was part of my Christmas Card Club this past six month.  Blue is my favorite color and this card scream blue.  LOVE IT Thanks Lori.


Creative Keepsake's Convention

I love this time of the year.  My business slows down with classes and workshops and it allows me to be in my stamp room and be creative all day for the upcoming months of stamping.  In Ma,y I will have a booth at the Creative Keepsake's Convention in Buffalo, NY.  I had a booth there last year but didn't teach any classes.  This year I am going to do a couple classes.  Here is a sample of the flip album I will be doing. 


The Flip Album is made from a 12" x 12" piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock.  Each student at my class will accent there album in one of the 2011-2013 In-Colors.  If you won't be at the Creative Keepsake's Convnetion, but would like to do this album watch for details in late April, as I will be doing these album as a Scrapbook Class in my home and as a Scrapbook-in-the-Mail.


DVD Scrapbook

If you attended my Stamping Retreat, Stamping in the Woods this fall, you made a Christmas Album out of a clear DVD case that Stampin' Up! sells.  This was a huge hit in the woods, as it allows you to take your scrapbook with you where ever you go.  So I have designed another DVD Scrapbook using Party Animal Simply Scrappin' Kit, found on page 189 on the Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog, for Creative Keepsake's Convention in Buffalo, NY in May.  Again, watch as I will be offering this as a Scrapbook-in-the-Mail or Class in May at my home.
