2010 Christmas Stamp-A-Stack II

December 10th 6-8 pm and December 11th 2-4pm

Christmas has just snuck up on us! Are you ready with all your Christmas Greetings? 

I've scheduled my second Stamp-A-Stack event :)  For $20 you get to bring home 12 cards, 3 each of 4 designs, this also includes Stampin' Up! high quality envelopes.  All you need to do is bring your own adhesive, everything else is provided for you.

All supplies will be pre-cut, so you will only need to stamp, punch, sponge and assemble, easy-peasy. If you are new to stamping, it's not a problem, I will be there to assist and full instructions will be provided.

Register by emailing me - or by registering through my Meetup Group.

Here are the designs for this event:

Design #1 - Contempo Christmas
Design #2 - Christmas Postcard

Design #3 - Classic Christmas

Design 4 - Bells & Boughs

Why I would love to have Stampin' Up! My Digital Studio

My Digital Studio is a Digital Papercrafting program for your computer offered by Stampin' Up! .. It contains thousands of digital representations of authentic Stampin' Up! stamps, accessories (punches), designer series paper and embellishments.

The reason I would love to own a tool like this is two-fold.

1) I live far away from my family, so it's easier to share my creative projects digitally, also digital is a great way to send cards!

2) I spend hours upon hours debating my scrapbook layouts.  I would use this tool as a planning tool to save me countless hours sorting, finding, mixing and matching ink colors, cardstock, designer series paper, ribbon, embellishments and stamps.  All of this product will be available to me on my computer through this program to plan out my "physical" projects without the hassle of pulling out all of my stuff.  Plus with my laptop, I can plan my projects in more places, not just in my scrapbooking space.

My Digital Studio is now 1/2 off in the Online Spectacular Promotion - check out this promotion and others on my Stampin' Up! website :)

Artistic Etchings Sunset

As part of the Columbus Scrappers First Blog Hop we were challenged to create a card or layout using the following:
  • 3 Fall Colors
  • 2 Ribbons
  • 1 Word Title
Here is the creation that I came up with :)  I sponged the sunset and stamped the images using the Artistic Etchings stamp set.
