Softbound Sophomore Album

For Christmas I made Karisa a scrapbook using My Digital Studio. Her freshman album was a little chipboard book that we did with black and white photos. The sophomore one is the softbound book - the actual first full book that I had made with the software and I am really pleased with the results. I picked a few pages to show you here.
Junior Scrapbook work has begun - the plans for this one are the larger hardbound book. Her senior year will be a hybrid 12x12 project. That way it will have room for added momentos - and we can work on the pages each month. For those of you who may be unfamiliar with the term 'hybrid' - it simply means that you mix digital with tradtional scrappin' elements. We will have the pages printed and mailed and then have the chance to add ribbon, accessories, envelopes, etc and then will put them in the page protectors and into an album.
If you would like to try your hand at digitial or hybrid crafting - now is a great time! You can earn a SAB freebie with Stampin' Up right now with a $50 purchase - there is a digital freebie that you can pick with ALL of the images that are available traditionally!

The Stairway Project

We have accumulated scads of frames over the years and they were just stacking up. I have started hanging them in the hallway. Each Stampin' Up! order I put in I add a Definately Decorative item, eventually it will be filled with art AND pictures!
Til then - it remains a project!!

I told you!

I had valentine samples!! These two cards (made by Tonya and Teresa) feature the new glimmer paper. The sewn card uses the paper 'as is' - the top one uses some ink to add some vintage hue to the heart.
Coming to camp next week? We will be making the glitter card above - but with a twist!!
Email will be out later this afternoon.

Vintage Valentine

This is a camp card from January camp. It features my favorite stamp set from the current Stampin' Up! catalog. We have used the Greeting Card Kids at every camp since I got it last summer.
As you think about your wish list for upcoming Sale-A-Bration purchases I am sure you will find some most haves in the current Occasions Mini - but don't forget the items that have been on your list for a while. This card uses the Big Shot to make a lovely scallop circle card and my most used Designer Paper from the current catalog. It even makes use of plain ole' grosgrain ribbon. Hard to see in the photo, but it has shimmer spray too!

It's almost time to Sale-A-Brate!

I have lots of fun samples to show you for the next few weeks! Sale-A-Bration kicks off this week, which means Stampin' Up! gives you a freebie (and a fabulous one at that!). I will have more freebies, prizes, inspiration and more.

Watch your in box, my facebook page and here - different things will be at the different spots - so check them all often!

Today's sample is a fun little candy holder we made at my friend's Susan's last week. It is her design - easy and a cute way to make a little sweet that much sweeter!

January Camp - sample one!

Guess what came right along with January Camp - snow! Every year, without fail - I set my calendar MONTHS before - then when it comes - with it is snow! This year finds us hardy, since we have had so much already - what is a few more inches here and there???
I will get the samples up over the next couple of days. This first one uses the new cupcake set and the new cupcake punch!! too fun ;^)
I have just a couple of spots left in the January one time purchase Try It club. I also have a PRE-Sale-A-Bration special. Details for both will be back on this site AND in my next email -so watch for details!!
