Look what I just bought!

Hello Friends,
Look what I just bought!  My friend Mary Fish sent me an Amazon gift certificate.  Seriously is there a better gift? Apart from Stampin' Up! goodies of course.. :)

I am wanting to make the most of the fabric that Stampin' Up! sells and so I used the gift certificate for a beginner sewing machine.  I am almost too intimidated to take it out of the box.....:)  I see so many cute things made with our fabric and I so want to make them. 

If any of my 'close by' customers/friends would like to give me a couple of lessons LIKE HOW YOU EVEN BEGIN to use this (smiles), I sure would appreciate it.

Thank you Mary for being so kind.  I appreciate you :)

Congratulations to Beth Nemenz

Hello Friends,

I am so excited - I can barely stand it!  One of my Stamp to the MAX team members, Beth Nemenz from Erie, PA earned the Incentive Trip to Disneyworld.  I called her from work this morning with Rett and ReNee (Demonstrator Business Developers) in the background to congratulate her.    She thought it was the TODAY show as her family are there and we were all so happy and excited and apparently we must have made a great noise cheering her for her awesome accomplishment.

Beth is a Rising Star this Stampin' Up! year which basically means she had an awesome first year as a Demonstrator and was in the top 15 Demonstrators of that category.  I was able to meet her for the first time during her Founders Circle Trip in St George, UT.

Beth is sooooooooo excited to tell her children Max and Ruby that they are going to Disneyworld.  I reminded her to take lots of pictures and even a video of their reaction when they find out.

Edie Bunting of Erie, PA recruited Beth. Edie is my direct downline and was a Rising Star herself, just the year before Beth.  Edie has struggled with cancer and has had surgeries and is doing much better.  I am so proud of her! She is such an inspriration.  Despite her battle with breast cancer, she kept going, became a Rising Star and has worked amazingly with her downline as shown in Beth's accomplishments.

CONGRATULATIONS BETH!! I am so very proud of you!  I am so very excited for you and I wish you all the very best as you continue on this delightful path with Stampin' Up!

If you are interested in joining our fabulous team - contact me at for more information.  If you live in the Erie, PA area I would love to give you Edie's or Beth's information.  What a great legacy you will have :)

Southern Caribbean Catch Up!

Hello Friends,
I was asked to be a guest over at
If you haven't joined yet - it is FREE and you will get a plethora of new ideas and fun tips and suggestions.

My Southern Caribbean album is LONG over due so now I have 2 pages taken care of :)  I am thrilled with how they turned out.  Just look at the beautiful color of the ocean.

This trip was truly a piece of heaven.  The food, the weather, the sun, the ocean, and of course friends make any vacation heaven.  My father passed away in 2009 when I earned the trip and I asked my mom if she would like to be my guest on the cruise.  Of course she needed some nudging! Tee hee.
I started this project by choosing a color combination. I love how you can try out colors by adding them to a page just to see what looks good, and decide from there. I decided to go with Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise, Pear Pizzazz, and a little touch of Old Olive. I was planning on also using Pacific Point but didn’t need to as this color combo was already perfect.

The base of my project is Pink Pirouette. I added hints of Melon Mambo for depth, like on the Vintage Overlays background. I am loving the Downtown Grunge download and used it quite a lot for this particular layout. I used the frames from the download. The “Notes” and the crumpled paper also came from the Downtown Grunge download. I used the Torn Edges Stamp Brush Set for the Pear Pizzazz and Tempting Turquoise parts of the layout, and then another Vintage Overlays piece for the Old Olive accents on top of the Pear Pizzazz. The picture on the first page is layered over the Top Note Die download.

Creating these pages has made me so excited to finally create an album full of wonderful memories.

If you haven't purchased the "My Digital Studio" software yet, I would really recommend it.

Summer Frenzy Swaps

Hello Friends,

I always love to receive good swaps.  Last week at our Summer Frenzy Event, we received awesome swaps.  I plan on sharing them all with you over the next week.  My friend Lisa made this card (In fact, she made 25).  The three flowers were stamped on Whisper White Card Stock and then cut out. Imagine cutting these out for 25 cards?  :) 

Lisa used the "Growing Green" Stamp Set.  It is a very 'delicate' set. 
Cultivate some graceful flora with the fine lines and ethereal petals in our Growing Green set. Reminiscent of a cool, breezy spring evening, they’ll make the perfect embellishment as a background or focal point for all your spring- and summertime projects—like wedding shower invitations or a Mother’s Day card. Combine them with our coordinating Woodland Walk Designer Series paper for an extra elegant look. Available both in wood-mount and clear-mount.

MDS - Me and my girls

Hello Friends,

It has been a while since I have had a chance to play with MY DIGITAL STUDIO.  I created this page in just under 10 minutes.  I am loving the color combo used here - Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive.
The "I love you sentiment" is a photo and I added it to the page.

One of my favorite stamp sets "Medallion" is very popular.  Love it :)

The picture of Natalie, Kayleigh and I was taken in 1998.
