Playing Along With Paper Players-PPA82

 I have been so out of touch with my blogging lately....ever since I broke my leg and had to have surgery in January, I just haven't been able to get into the groove of things.  I have been working on several of them designing for UStamp with Dawn and Friends.  I will also be designing for her next round which is all about using the Big Shot!!!!!  It should be very exciting.  Click on the icon on the right for the "Oh My Word" website and join.  The projects are fabulous and many of the designers are using the products found in the Occassionals Mini and the Sale-A-Bration catalogs. 

Today, I received my weekly email from Paper Players and they have a new challenge this week....using scallops.  Some of my favorite demonstrators are designers on this blog here to see their is my submission for this week
I have fallen in love with this stamp set called "Bliss".  It is very versatile...especially the big background can see how nice the background looks by just stamping it in crumb cake onto crumb cake cardstock.  I didn't think I would like using pearls but they are my new best friend.  I also ordered all of the seam binding colors in the mini.....they definitely need to keep this ribbon as a core ribbon in the catalog.
Hope you enjoy and go onto Paper Players to join in the fun!!!!

Two Minutes To Learn About Stampin' Up!

I wanted to share this video with you from the Co-Founder and CEO of Stampin' UP! Shelli Gardner.  Her 2 minute video sums it all up about why this company is so wonderful.  This is the company's best time of year.....Sale-A-Bration.   For every $50 you spend in product, you will be able to pick a free stamp set!!!!

I love being able to create and share my passion and with my involvement with this company I have been able to accomplish my goals and earn a little money along the way. 

If you are a crafter, scrapbooker, designer and you want to keep your creative juices flowing.....come and see what we are all about!!!!!!  Since my involvement with SU! I have seen lots of wonderful changes.....the company is forever expanding their products and concepts and we as demonstrators (or for me a hobbyist) are in on all the happenings. 

I challenge you to watch the video and then look onto the SU! website to see what all the buzz is about....there is something for everyone!!!!!!

Designing Once Again!!!!

I am so excited that Dawn Rapsas has asked me to be a guest designer for the next UStamp with Dawn and Friends...Oh My Word!! Edition.  I had so much fun making my project for the Year End Blow Out and am extremely priviledged to create for this next round.  My mind was a little slow coming out of the gate and had to become really creative with the color combo I am working with.  The newest edition will be launched in a week and it is definitely worth checking out.  With your membership you have access to over 40 projects and templates.  Every project this time will be focusing on the new Occassions Mini and the Sale-A-Bration catalogs.  I am loving everything in both and have decided I needed to buy all of it.....typical!!!!!

The other great idea that Dawn had was to find someone to get a FREE pass.  I belong to alot of blog sites and love getting new ideas.  One blogsite that really caught my eye is Lori Heiling's site called Confessions of  a Stamping Addict.  She has created some unbelievable cards and projects and she really inspires me. 

If you would like to join the next round of UStamp with Dawn and Friends just click on the widget in the right and check it out!!!!!  Once my project has been posted on the sight I will post it on my blog!!!!
