Poppy Parade Card

Peaceful poppies

The Peaceful Poppies Suite is new to the Stampin' Up 2020 Mini Catalogue. This was a fairly quick and easy card as the Designer Paper is the Background. I added a couple of single 'popped up" poppies to the picture and have a quick and easy card! Enjoy!

March Is National Craft Month!


Hi Stamping Friends!

so...It's National Craft Month...What are you going to create!  I will post some new designs this week so be on the lookout!  Nothing is more fun than to take time to leasurely create & then craft.  More fun when you have a group of family & friends to share it with!  

I have been really pushing myself to do more and spread the word on how ferric the products are with Stampin' Up. 

As mentioned-- tomorrow I'll post some new designs--I also have been re vamping--decluttering my craft room and I'd like to share some picks later this week so stay tuned.   Hope you have a great week.  Be good to yourself and those you love.  And have fun!



Putting A Little Fun In Your Life!

Hi Stamping Friends!
 Hope you all are having a great week!  Over the years, I have had many people ask me why I still work--I am well over Retirememt age and manage to continue to work Part Time in my career as a Nurse.  The simplest answer is I LOVE my job--I have the BEST co workers and most of all despite all the stress it can bring, we manage to have lots of FUN  every time!   No better way to work, right??  I used to tell my kids when they were young--it doesn't matter what chosen path you take in the work force, make sure you love what you do and have fun every day.  
I apply the same thinking to my Stamping Business--I was introduced to Stampin Up and I instantly fell in love with their products!  I love the high quality & color coordination.  Anyone can do this!  I cannot tell you how much I've learned & improved my skill & creativity over the years!  My first card took me 5 days to complete!! How funny.   You will see how you wimpress yourself & others by what you do!!  Best of all you will make great new friends!  Have opportunities galore to continue creating!  I would love to share more info with you!  Join my email list on this page below!  I am happy to answer any & all your questions!   I guarantee FUN for sure!   
Get a free catalogue & the opportunity to learn more.  I guess I am on my soapbox--but I believe in Stampin' Up and what we offer.  

"To love what we do and share what we love as we help others enjoy creativity and worthwhile accomplishments...in this we make a difference."

Stampin' Up - Statement Of The Heart

Successful Class!

Hi Stampers!

We all had such a great time yesterday at my 2020 Mini Catalogue and SAB showcase class!    Met again with some great friends and made 2 more new friends.   What a special time in my life where I have more time to spend on things that I enjoy doing.   What things do you all enjoy doing?   I actually consider myself "retired" but I do still work part time---it's actually more a part timeer part time job.   It is good for my soul!   It stimulates my mind---and allows me still to enjoy my rafting too!   Do you all have hobbies in your life?   Do you take time for you?   I have always been guilty of not taking time for me----but it is good for your physical as well as mental well being.    Being able to do things your enjoy gives you peace in your heart and mind and body.   It helps you be able to work and live better.    At least that is how I look at it.   Let me know your thoughts!   I'l love to hear from you!

So sorry for being so lax---the Holidays have gotten the best of me---plus my OTHER job, has been a little bit too demanding!   How dare they!!  Well I hope you all had a wonderful Holiday with your loved ones.   I know I did, but as much as I love Christmas, I am always so happy when it is over with!!

We are well under way into Sale A Bration and the New 2020 Mini Catalogue (formally called Occasions Catalogue)   there are some WONDERFUL choices you can see.   I have already had 2 classes in January---then 2 different events scheduled for February---Last weekend---I had a class on EMBOSSING.   I love doing various techniques and the guests do too!   It is always nice to make the cards---but when you become a more avid Stamper, you want to learn and create new ways of doing things.   We did Heat embossing with embossing powder as well as creations with the embossing folders---using a brayer to add ink to an embossing folder and Stamping on an emobssing folder---lots of fun for everyone!   We really do have loads of fun---so if you are local to the Buckeye area, I encourage you to contact me----check my calendar of events here and see what is coming up!!   I also like to offer 1:1 classes for anyone who would like a little Stampin 101 class----no fees attached---just you and me sitting down and looking at all the equipment used and learning just the basic skill.  You would be so surprised how easy all of this is.   Just call, text, email or send a message---I am happy to arrange some time with you!  

I hope you all have a very Happy Valentines Day this week!    Don't forget to send a Valentine to your favorite Sweetie Pie----How do you like these Valentines made with the Heartfelt Stamp Set that is in the 2020 Mini Catalogue!   Too Cute Right!!??    

Hope to hear from you soon!    

Keep Stampin'
