Stamping Extreme Weekend Extravaganzas (SEWE)---or How lucky am I????

Hey friends!

I have to share how lucky I am....I was invited to travel to Ocean City, MD with my best stamping buddies for a long weekend of girls-only stamping. And another friend invited me back to the ocean the following weekend for another girls long stamping weekend. I feel like I must be the luckiest girl in the world!

I wanted to share some of the stamping projects I made and some my stamping pals made...I hang out with some awesomely creative stampers!

Chris made some beautiful vintage-y tags; love the bottle caps!
some of our supplies
a bunch of the cards we made

Susan made a pirate card for a special little guy who loves pirates 

Susan also designed these 3x3" cards using SAB stamps and DSP

my best stamping buds--Barb, Susan, and Chris

The next weekend I did it all over again but with different stamping friends at a different location; this time we were ocean view and it was beautiful! I enjoyed actually getting a glimpse of the ocean as the weekend before our place was on the bayside and I never even saw the ocean during that trip because we were too busy stamping to leave the condo!
A snowy ocean view

although chilly---still beautiful!
Again lots of stamping....
Lynn and Kim at our mad creativity table

Lynn's card--too cute!

Lynn's card for a little guy in her life---so adorable!

My latest video -- fantastic!

Hey friends!

I posted my newest video today and thought I would share it with you.

I needed a thank you note recently and wanted to use my current favorite designer series paper (DSP), First Edition. It all came together fabulously in this thank you card.

Stamping is fun---especially if you can stamp with FREE products and you can get FREE products during Sale-A-Bration (SAB). For every $50 Stampin Up order you can pick a FEEE item from the SAB catalog.

If you do not have a local demonstrator, I would love to have you select me for your Stampin Up demonstrator (& creative coach).

Want a sneak peek at the January club projects---and cool Stampin Up news? Of course, you do!

Hey friends!

I wanted to share a sneak peek at the January club projects. We will learn a new technique or two and get to play with a few new products from the spring catalog---lace tape, doilies, honeycomb embossing folder, etc.

There are just a couple of spots left, contact me today and I'll see you on Tuesday at 7pm. Don't miss the fun---and these beautiful cards!

Paper Pumpkin---or fairy godmother in a box???
Can't make a time commitment to this club? Interested in a 30 minute creativity escape? Then the Paper Pumpkin program may be for you. Stampin Up is launching a new, right-to-your-door kit program just for you! Each month you can receive a unique, surprise kit with a project--cards, journals, d├ęcor, and more! Everything is color-coordinated, measured, and cut for you and includes stamps, ink, paper, and accessories (everything, including instructions, but not adhesive). Each kit gives you a 30-minute creativity escape; think of it like a visit from your fairy godmother. Click here for more details. Not sure if this program is for you? Then the trial pumpkin may be for here to see the March trial project.

Dude, you should stamp! Check out this video

OMG! It's the easy button for us time-strapped folks!

Hey friends!

Once upon a time.....
There was a girl who needed a creative escape.
     She didn't have time to create,
         she didn't know what to create,
              she didn't want to buy a lot of stuff.

Luckily, her fairly god-mother waved her magic wand, turning a pumpkin into a carriage to whisk her away.

Today, instead of whisking you away in a carriage, your fairy god-mother sends a paper pumpkin, or creativity carriage, to your doorstep to give you a creative ball... Click here to find out what!

Want to be the girl in the story? Give Paper Pumpkin a try! You'll get a complete project with everything you need to create--stamps, ink, pre-measured supplies--no mess, no extras, and no craft-aftermath. And all you need is 30 minutes and, if you you enjoy pinterest sharing, you'll have a ready-to-pin project! Learn more about the paper pumpkin program at
