Box in a Bag

Tangerine Tango is one of the great new "In Colors" from Stampin' Up!, and I used it along with the Hawaii Papaya Designer Series decorative paper to create this Box in a Bag. The website with the tutorial of how to make it is at Stampin With Di I used the new scallop punch as well as the rhinestone brads and Boho Blossoms punch for the flower. This little box will be a great way to package those small little gifts we often give.

Heard From the Heart and Bloomin Beautiful

I've been visualizing this card in my head for a while and have finally had a chance to stamp it. I'm using Chocolate Chip and Barely Banana. I was so glad to see Bloomin Beautiful made it into the new catalog, and I love the new Heard from the Heart set.

It's Time to Start a Blog!

Welcome to my stamping blog! I have been a Stampin' Up! demonstrator for almost eight years, and I finally decided it was time to start my own blog. One of the goals of this blog is to update my Stampin' Up! customers on news, specials, and incentives available through Stampin' Up! Secondly, I hope to post at least three creative items each week which will inspire you to take out your stamping supplies and be creative. Finally, by having a blog I will take time to stamp on a regular basis so I can maintain an up-to-date, useful tool for all of you. Be patient with me as I figure all of this out and feel free to provide suggestions for improving this blog.
