Don't you just love to color?? Reminds me of being a kid again. Well I did a lot of coloring on this layout. I didn't realize how many images I stamped until I started coloring them all in. BUT, I did have a blast. I stamped the images with the level 3 set, Time Well Spent, using black stazon ink. I used markers as well as the pencils with the blender pens to color the images. The 2 flowers that are somewhat on top of the pic were cut out and stuck on with dimensionals.

One huge stamp!!

Wow!! I picked From the Garden as my free hostess set with my order and wow, is it big. The card base is the standard size 4.25 x 5.5 and it's sticking over. But it's soooo beautiful!! I attempted watercoloring here. (still learning)
This one turned out really pretty if I may so myself. And it was super simple. Although I wish I had a mother's day stamp, that would have been better. Here's a quick layout I did to hang on my S6 wall. Love those scrappin' kits.

Well, off to do some more scrappin'. Hopefully I'll update this thing in another day or two.

Got some new goodies today

The UPS man showed up a day early, yeah! Got some new stuff in this order. Love that!
Nothing new on this first layout, just playing with my 'old' stuff. lol Base cs is Sage Shadow and I used the Outlaw pattern paper that is now retired. Used my scallop punch for the corner thingie. And I used my smaller corner rounder for the scallops on the bottom. The swirl stamp is from the Priceless set. This is where I used a few new goodies. LOVE LOVE LOVE the rubons!! They look great, go on sooooooooooooooooooo smooth, and you get a sheet of both white and black in the package.
I also used my build a brad today. I think I'll be using a lot more of them, it turned out great.
The base CS is textured Brocade Blue (I think) and the pp is from the Brocade Backgrounds. The bottom Night of Navy cs was too bland but I didn't want anything stamped on there so I just rubbed my ink pad on there in all different directions. Cool look. The chipboard is from the Ginormous assortment, painted Ivory then stamped. Hope you like

Guess who??

Yep, it's me. I'm so embarrased at how long it's been since I've last posted. Sorry.

I do have a lot of exciting news to share though, so hopefully that will make up for it.

First of all, the new catalog is out with new product and stamp sets!! You gotta check it out! and click on 'Get our products' then 'Our current catalogues' then 'Can-English'. Start flipping through the catti. Or if you'd like a paper copy, you can purchase them for $12.04 or earn one for free by hosting a workshop. You'll also notice the prices have come down, but those prices are all wrong, THEY'VE DROPPED THEM ANOTHER 7%!!!! Excellent prices now I tell ya! AND, a qualifing show is now $200 instead of $225 so you'll earn hostess benefits faster.

Sale-A-Bration is also just around the corner. Feb. 1st to March 17th. Spend $70 and you can pick from 5 exclusive stamp sets or a set of rubon's. Also as a hostess, for every $400 in sales you also get to pick a stamp set or rubons. My calendar is starting to fill up so if you want to book a workshop, call or email me ASAP.

Some other good news SU! told us about is it that soon, as demo's, we'll be able to accept Credit card as a payment option. Woohoo, that will be so good!!

Alright, now on to the fun stuff. I spent most of my day today making this mini album. I used CD envelopes for the base and added CS and 'stuff'. I used up some of my old scrappin' kits and only 2 sheets of pp. I didn't use very many 3D embellishments as the book would get too thick, plus I wanted to keep it simple and focus on the pictures.

This album was really hard for me to scrap for 2 reasons. One, those of you that know me as a scrapper, know I have to scrap in chronological order. These are not 'next on my list', but I did them anyway. Also, I never thought I would NOT put pictures in my scrapbooks. This is my first mini album and it's of a day of hiking with my sister and her family. It would have been hard to get these all onto just a layout or two. I definately see more in my future.
