PPA53 Purple Monochromatic

This week Pals Paper Arts is having a Purple Monochromatic challenge. I have so many things to do for my stamp camp tomorrow, I decided to make my card using My Digital Studio from Stampin' Up!

I absolutely love My Digital Studio! It is so easy to use and you can create almost anything with this software. From cards and scrapbook pages to dvds and photo albums, this program has almost everything. Stampin' Up! even offers downloads to expand your digital library. What more could you need, besides actual stamps and ink?

If you want more information on My Digital Studio or would like to order your own copy, visit my website at

Also remember that for the month of August if you hold a $350 workshop, you will get an extra $25 in hostess dollars FREE.

Thanks for visiting and see you next time.

Final Convention Post

Convention was so much fun! This was my first one and I will absolutely be going again. Here are some photos from the sweet shop. Everything is made out of paper and embellishments!

Don't they look good enough to eat? I only took a couple of photos from the sweet shop because I got hungrier the more I stood there. I also wanted to share a couple of photos from the game show. I made it to the game show!!! I didn't make it past round one but it was so much fun. (After I got over being nervous in front of almost 2800 fellow demonstrators, being on that big stage and seeing myself on the jumbotron.)

For the last of my Convention photos, the second photo I took with Shelli. This was during lunch on Thursday of Convention. I was actually late to my class because the line was so long. The next day, they cut the line short so that no one would be late for class.I got Shelli to sign my Convention booklet!! Like I said earlier, I will be going back to Convention because it was so much fun. We learned a lot of new and exciting techniques and information. If you would like to join us next year, send me a comment and I will be more than happy to share my love for what I do!

Thanks for visiting and see you next time.

Flower Power Party at Convention

On Wednesday (check-in day) Stampin' Up! hosted a Flower Power Party. Many of the demonstrators chose to go all out and dress up. I didn't go all out but I did wear a dress that looked like it could have been from the sixties.Here I am with the Singing Serenadors.
Even Shelli and Sterling got dressed up for the Party!

We were told that there would be a game show on Saturday during the Closing Session. Qualifications were held at the Flower Power Party. This is a list of the games we had a chance of playing if we made the cut. I will share more photos from the game show later. I will tell you that I had a blast!!!

The Party was so much fun! I think everyone there had a lot of fun! I will share more Convention photos and exciting news tomorrow.

Thanks for visiting and see you tomorrow,

You could be one of us lucky demonstrators who get to attend Convention next year! Check out my website here and use password CreativeSpace to sign up to be a demo.

Waiting in the airport & First day of Convention

I know I said I would try to post photos and information from Convention, but I was so tired every night. It was so exciting!

Wednesday was check-in day. We got a really cute messenger bag with our FREE stamp sets and Convention agenda. Right after check-in, I got in line for the Riverton Campus tour. While we were waiting on the bus, one of the staff members offered 6 of us a VIP tour of the campus as part of the You Crew. To my surprise, I got chosen!!!Here is a photo of the Riverton Campus from the bus as we pulled up.

Here we are on the pick line getting ready to fill some actual orders. How lucky were we?!

That is all for today. Be sure to come back tomorrow because I have more fun Convention photos to share!


P.S. If you want to have this much fun, contact me to find out how to become a demonstrator.

I forgot to tell you that my flight got delayed and now I have to wait a the airport for three hours! Oh well, now I get more time to look through the catalog and update my wish list!!!

My Stampin' Story

As part of Stampin' Up! new Recruit Crew, one of our first acts was to share our "My Stampin' Story". I have been playing with My Digital Studio trying to get this the way I wanted it. I first tried to do a vintage look, but I didn't like the way it was turning out. I then tried to use the medallion background stamp but didn't like the way that looked either. I started to play around with the new designer paper colors and this is what I came up with.

I didn't have any trouble with My Story because I have been thinking about it for awhile. I hope you like it.

I am leaving for Convention on Tuesday and will try to keep you updated with news and photos.

Thanks for visiting and see you next time.

My Why

As part of Stampin' Up!'s Recruit Crew, our first Act was to create our own My Why story. This story is to put in writing why we decided to join the Recruit Crew and drives us to succeed.

I have thought about it and decided that I want to recruit people who will eventually become good friends. Who couldn't use more friends? "It's good to dream!" Dream about what comes next in my Stampin' Up! business and make it happen. Dream about all the great product and put them to use. Finally, I want to be a part of a great team. I already am because I am a part of the Stampin' Up! team. I would also like to build my own team of great stampers.

There you have it. My Why story. After Convention, I am planning on putting this in a frame and putting it somewhere I can see it everyday. I intend to stick with it and one day create a new My Why story with all new goals.

Thanks for visiting and see you next time.

Greeting Card Christmas

I am in love with this new set. Greeting Card Kids is a new set in the new Stampin' Up! catalog. This set has four stamps; Christmas, Halloween, Valentine's Day, and Back to School. The little kids are precious and I strongly suggest that if you don't already have this set on your wish list, add it.

This card is one of the ones that we will be doing in our Second Annual Christmas Stamp Camp. We have three demonstrators each doing two different designs. This camp is for those who want to get a jump on their Christmas cards and also want to give handmade cards.

I don't remember where I first saw this technique, but I love it. You take your scallop oval die and run it through the big shot with a piece of chipboard. You can use the inside oval for another project. For this you only need the scallop piece and the outside piece. Take your card stock and place it inside your Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder. Layer your scallop oval on top of the folder and run it through the big shot with the two cutting plates on top and bottom. What you end up with is an embossed piece with the middle oval bare. I sponged over my piece with Real Red to get the petals to pop out. I colored this little girl with by blender pens and markers, then added glitter to her trimmings (you can't tell in the photo but she really shines!).

Thanks for visiting and see you next time. If you need any help with this technique, ask and I can send you step by step directions.

I am pleased at how this card turned out.

Thanks for visiting and see you next time.

Happy 4th of July!!

I decided since tomorrow is Independence Day that I should make a scrapbook page to save some memories. I love My Digital Studio because of how easy it is to use! I wanted the photo to be something different so I used the star punch and resized it. I used some snowflakes for the fireworks because I don't have the digital Fourth of July set. I think they work perfectly.

Happy 4th of July to all my fellow American's!! Be safe and have fun!

Thanks for visiting and see you next time!
