Hi Everyone, 
Today I have just a few updates...
First I'm sorry I haven't been around. It's been really busy around here and It didn't help that I had an allergic reaction to something I touched and ended up with two swollen eyes??? Yikes. I didn't do much crafting or spent too much time on the computer with two bum eyes. I'm finally getting back to normal and hope to get some crafty time in soon. 
I'm expecting my Stampin' Up! Project Life order today :) I'll be posting about it next week when it's available on May 1st to order. If you missed the info on SU! Project Life you can see it here
I'm still trying to figure out what is going on with some blog issues. I can tell you I have made up my mind to make some changes...It's in the works and will be happening soon.

New weekly deals are available from now until April 28th. You can check them out here. 

Don't forget about the retirement list...It's a great time to order while supplies are available and you can take advantage of the free shipping offer.

Thanks everyone for stopping by. 
See you back here soon.

Project Life and Stampin' Up!

Get ready for a scrapbooking revolution with Project Life! It helps busy people (so basically all of us) document life using photos and journaling in a quick, simple, and fabulous way. We've partnered with Becky Higgins, creator of Project Life, to offer a complete line of elite products.

Becky explains, "It's called Project LIFE because it's about YOUR LIFE. Whatever your life is. Whatever your stage of life. Whatever your family circumstances. Whatever your lifestyle. Project Life is designed to help anyone and everyone get their pictures into a book." In a nutshell, it's all about spending more time making memories and less time scrapbooking them.

You will be able to order a selection of Project Life products starting May 1. And with the launch of Stampin' Up!'s new annual catalog on June 2, you'll be able to buy from the complete line of Project Life products!
  • Coordination, coordination, coordination. You know Stampin' Up! does it best, and the Project Life line is no exception. 
  • Our products center on things that matter most-weddings, babies, kids, and the everyday moments of getting together with your favorite people-all things that need to be remembered.
  • Our card collections come without rounded corners so you can decide if you want to keep them that way (and match the corners of your photos as they come) or use our Project Life Corner Punch to round them out. 
  • Our card collections come packaged in an exclusive storage system that holds all your Project Life supplies on your desk: cards, journaling pens, photos, accessory packs, stamp sets, and more.

Stay Tuned for more details. I will share as they become available.

Color Caddy Video

Hi All,
Here is the video I promised a few weeks ago on how to put together the Color Caddy from Stampin' Up! It's a great tool and storage solution for your ink pads. Having it right on my desk makes it very convenient and easy to access.

Virtual Stamp Club (Again)...

Sorry for reposting this but I've been having technical problems this week. Email, Blogger, Forms ugh! 
I had a few emails that said they filled out the form I posted for club but didnt get a confirmation email grrrrr. I'm going to try google forms this time...If you already signed up using the form from earlier in the week. Please sign up again with the form below and also email me so I can confirm ( Sorry about all the tech problems this week. Not sure what is going on :(
On a stamping budget, but have a wish list?
Do you sometimes purchase craft products and then need ideas and inspiration?
Join the Virtual Stamp Club…
Here’s how it works…

  • At the beginning of each month you will receive an email with a hostess code that you will use for that month’s Virtual Stamp Club orders.
  • Included in the monthly email will be a suggested supply list of products totaling from $30-$40 (before shipping and tax).
  • You can choose to order the suggested supplies that will be used in exclusive virtual stamp club videos or make your own selections totaling $35 (before shipping and tax). (Note: supplies like ink, scissors, adhesive, and card stock etc will not be included in the supplies but as an add-on order list)
  • After your club order is placed (within 24-48 hours) you will receive an email with exclusive project videos, instruction sheets, and any templates you need. These projects will be made with the supplies from the suggested product list you received at the beginning of the month.

Benefits you will receive as a member of the virtual stamp club:

  • Receive a free catalog mailed to you (along with any mini catalogs that come out). Please note your first catalog will be sent to you when the new catalog is released June 1st.
  • Get the Virtual Stamp Club Projects free each month. You will receive a combination of video tutorials and printable directions that include all measurements and templates needed.
  • Receive a handmade Thank You card from me each month you place a club order.
  • Frequent Buyers rewards apply.
  • Monthly drawings will be held with a winner of the Hostess Rewards for that month.

There are two rules…

  • You agree to place a minimum online order of $35 (or the supplies from the suggested supply list) each month for a minimum of 6 months between the 1st and the 15th of the month. After the 6th months you can continue on a monthly basis to remain in the club.
  • You agree not to share the links to the exclusive online classes with anyone else.

Not interested in the Virtual Stamp Club, but would still like to get the Exclusive Virtual Stamp Club Project tutorials?

At the end of each month I will post a link for anyone to purchase the classes with no monthly commitment for only $9.95.
Fill out the form below to sign up.

Happy Friday

Hi All, 
So it seems my email subscriptions are not emailing out? Well at least yesterdays didn't go. I sub to my own blog so I can monitor the email subscription for problems and I didn't get mine yesterday? My IT guy (aka Scott) looked it over and did some investigating and it seems that if it didn't email out, it might not ever go out again????? I'm testing today with a week in review post.
So here we go...
This week we did a look at the For the Birds Stamp Set with a giveaway...
Click HERE to see Monday's video and post with the giveaway info.
Wednesday I had another video; Click HERE to watch :) 
and Thursday I announced the newest Stampin' Up! Club. Click here to learn about the new Virtual Stamp Club

I'll be back later with today's Stampin' on Friday video. Have a great day :)
