Project Life by Stampin' Up!

What an exciting day!  Not only did the sun shine for an hour or so (it's been raining all week) my Project Life stuff arrived from Stampin' Up!  AND the new catalogue was released to demonstrators!  WOOHOO!  Granted, I saw the new catalogue about a month ago (a perk of being on an advisory panel) but it was still very exciting : )

My Project Life stuff arrived JUST before I started teaching piano....argh!  So I had to wait until after the kids were in bed to really take a look at it.  I'm loving what I'm seeing!

Confession:  I have a TERRIBLE time scrapbooking!  I tend towards perfectionism when scrapbooking.  Add to that the fact that digital photography means that instead of 24 photos needing to being catalogued I have hundreds!  I'm sure that many of you can relate.  So I vowed to myself this morning that I would just find what photos I had printed and would make a page with my new Project Life by Stampin' Up! stuff when it arrived.

I had so much fun with it!  Here's what I came up with:


And this isn't even embellished!  I'm so pleased with the result!

Here's what I'm loving about Project Life by Stampin' Up! so far:

1.  There are 100 DIFFERENT cards in the card collection (#135298, $19.95).  It makes filling the spaces SO EASY!  I simply swapped out different cards until I found the one I liked.  No cutting!  No waste!  Beautiful!

2.  I can use the Cards and Labels Project Life framelits to crop my photos perfectly!  No guessing where to cut....I simply place the framelit around the part of the photo I want and run it through the Big Shot!  Wow!


3.  All of the colours coordinate with Stampin' Up! colours....of course!  So I'm able to stamp what I want and it will match perfectly!  Nice!

I could go on and on and on......and I've only done one page so far!  I can't wait to share more with you!  Click here to see what is currently available from Project Life by Stampin' Up!  And then contact me to order your own Project Life by Stampin' Up! product!

P.S. There are many more Project Life by Stampin' Up! themes in the annual catalogue.....woohoo!

Day 10: That's shiny ;)

So, I got side-tracked off my Twelve Days of Christmas Cards postings.   I got distracted on Friday by taking one kid to the doctor because of an endless cough and a little bout of stomach flu.  No worries, I'd have the weekend to catch up, right?

I was SO excited to have a weekend with "nothing" going on.  No parties, no places to go, no big errands to run.  I had a breakfast date with my son and then my lovely father-in-law arrived.  He not only brought us winter tires and put them on the car (THANK YOU, THANK YOU!), he took the kids away for a few hours!

Yay!

That's shiny!

Okay, so put aside stamping for a bit...let's go Christmas shopping for the kids and out for lunch.  It was great, we went to our favourite Indian place, then across the street to our favourite toy store and topped it off with a yummy holiday drink before heading home.

I fully planned on capping off my wonderful day by spending the late afternoon and evening stamping and watching a movie …

CAS Christmas

Here it is....my first Christmas card of the year!  I'm really liking Stampin' Up's new Winter Frost Speciality DSP.  I figure that I can use some of it for Christmas cards and whatever is left will be great for winter birthday, thank you and other cards.  Gotta love versatility!

I used the  CAS -Colours and Sketches Challenge #42 sketch for this card.  I really like the simplicity of the clean lines in this sketch. 



Here's what I did with it:

Love, LOVE, LOVE, Island Indigo and Pool Party together!  I'm so happy that Stampin' Up kept those two colours and used them in this DSP.  So great! I used one of my favourite, easy techniques -- "thumping" -- to create the look on the ornament.  The "Ornament Keepsakes" stamp set is still available by the way.  Here is a close up of the ornament:
While you can't see it here, I also stamped it again using the Illuminate ink to give it a bit of a shimmer.  To finish it off I used a little bit of S…

Thanks Grandma!

So here I am again apologizing for my absence from the blogging world.   And yet again I'll say something about "trying to do better"....especially for those of you, my faithful friends, who have expressed that you miss stamping with me and seeing what I'm up to.   I will do my best.

I have been absent because, honestly, I haven't been stamping!   The winter and spring were crazy busy...my husband, who is head of Music at his school, was helping to run a musical....my kids were busy....I was busy....

Excuses.  I know!

In any case, after months away from stamping I started again this week.  A lot of the stuff I've made, I've already passed along to others before taking a picture.  But I captured today's card before it gets put in the mail.

My daughter and I just spent a lovely day with my mother-in-law while the boys were away doing their thing.  A neighbour of ours was selling a little pink bike and, very generously, "grandma" bought the bik…
