I really don't know if anyone ever visits me here but I do know that it has been a very long time since I have. I am hoping to change my on again off again ways with this blog and make a commitment to visit at least once a week. I have lots of things to share, and those things, mainly my love of papercrafting and Stampin' Up! are not doing any good to myself or anyone else stuck up in my head. I am learning things about social media and I really want to start using the tools that are available to me to share what I love and what I am passionate about...PAPER and INK, well there are lots of other things also but this blog was created to share what you can do with a piece of paper and some ink so without babbling on further here is what I worked on last week:

My Birthday week is officially over and as all good intentions go, I had intended to post this card on my Birthday last Wednesday but the time just kept ticking away and I never got it posted. I did get my card made though and that was an accomplishment. As the saying goes better late than never...right? The week was so busy as we have 3 Birthdays in a row starting from August 21st to the 23rd. Mine is in the middle right before my son's and well I spent my birthday getting ready for his as it has been since the day he was born. So let me show you my card I really think it turned out quite lovely. I CASEd the elements and colors from Joanna Munster here I really loved her card, I just changed it to use the layout for Paper Craft Crew Challenge #4

I'm so excited about my new venture as Design Team for Paper Craft Crew . I am getting a late start though. I had a little learning curve with the postings but now I think I have it all down. Here is my second card for PCC. I still don't have the picture thing down but I will get there. I love how my card turned out. I used the stamp set from Stampin' Up! You're Amazing along with the Fanfair DSP. The base is Island Indigo with a layer of Crumb Cake the sentiment is stamped on Very Vanilla.

Who knows I might get hooked and want to enter all the challenges...haha probably not. But I am going to give this one o go for now.
Here's the sketch:

Ok so it's been 3 weeks since convention and I am just getting around to posting about it. This was my second Stampin' Up! Convention and I was not dissapointed in the least. Again this year I rented a house and invited 7 strangers and one returnee to share the cost. It was a great time and I met some great friends from Oregon to Florida and a few states in between. This year's experience was all I had expected it to be. We stamped the night away, every night...well mostly because I didn't finish my swaps and the girls pitched in to help me out. I was so grateful for my new friends help I was able to finish all 120 of them on time, and got to swap to my hearts content. Here is one of the swap cards that I created for convention. I wish I could take better pictures of them though...
This card was made using Fabulous You. The card base is Basic Black. The shoe is stamped on the yellow paper from Floral District DSP and layered on Whisper White with scalloped layers of So Saffron, Daffodil Delight, Basic Grey, and Basic Black. I cut the sentiment in half and used the first part for the outside and the rest for the inside. I faux bowed it with Whisper Whit satin organza ribbon and blinged up the shoe with some jewels. I love how the card turned out.

I love this stamp set Frame It from the 2011-2012 Idea Book and Catalog. I am sorry to say good bye since it was new last year. I purchased it on my first order of the catalog last year. I LOVED it! Well as happens alot with me as soon as I got it in my hot hands I put it on the shelf and never looked at it again until it hit the Retiring List in March. So I started playing with it and here is what I came up with.
So I'm officially counting down to the new catalog! The release date for the 2012-2013 Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalog is June 1st. Demonstrators get to see it early and I have thumbed through it and made an enormous wish list already. I have to say there are some great changes to this years product line up and to the new catalog. The first and best improvement is that the catalog is full of great new designs and some new tools that I can't wait for all of you to see and use. This year Stampin' Up! has introduced some new ink pads that give your stamping a crisp very spectacular image. I LOVE the new pads! I didn't want, to want to ( I know that is too many wants, but "sigh") replace my old ink pads but eventually I will replace them all! So for now just letting you know that there are only 10 more days to purchase any of the retiring items from the current 2011-2012 selection. Here is a link to where you can order. And that's what it's all about...
