To love what we do and share what we love

Stampin’ UP!’s Statement of the Heart states, “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.”

Creativity is anything that you want it to be.   Everyone has it, you just have to believe in yourself.  We are not all perfect, but that is what is so much fun — most of my cards are a little crooked, but that is just me.   No matter how hard I try to line up my sentiments straight, they always out of alignment.

For those of us that prefer to shop online, the Stampin’ UP! Catalogs are just what you are looking for.  Some people like looking at clothes catalogs, but I have always enjoyed going to a hardware store — I know, Stampin’ UP! is not a hardware store, but it has everything you can imagine inside it.  Why would you want to purchase a “flat” card at the grocery store, the post office, or a box store, when you can make it yourself.   The surprise and delight the recipient will see when they open that envelope.

I love looking through the Stampin’ UP! Annual catalog at all the coordinating products is so exciting.  The color choices are endless — Cardstock, Designer Series Paper (DSP), Ink Pads, Refill Ink Bottles, Ribbons, Markers, Embellishments, and more.   Wait until you see the Stamp Sets, Punches, the Framelits and Thinlits that require the Big Shot to Die Cut all the beautiful shapes.   Even looking at the adhesive will get you excited because there are different types for different projects.

If you have never heard of Stampin’ UP! and would like to receive a copy of the 2016-2017 Annual Catalog, please leave a message with your email address so I can contact you.  This offer is only available within the USA.

Thank you for stopping by.

 

 

 

 

Scrapbook Pages – A Tease

Thought I would post a “tease” showing three scrapbook pages I have created for classes on March 17 & 18, 2017, at the Williamsburg, Virginia, Scrapbook Retreat during hosted by the Virginia Scrapbook Retreats.

This is only a sample of what I will bringing for classes.  Looking forward to another 4-day Crop.

Happy Anniversary!

A Day at the Amusement Park!

A View from the Garden!

 

Red at Night, Sailor’s Delight

Red at Night, Sailor’s Delight indicates that the sky has a hue of bright reds beaming across the sky and that good weather will follow.

During sunrise and sunset the sun is low in the sky, and it transmits light through the thickest part of the atmosphere. A red sky suggests an atmosphere loaded with dust and moisture particles. We see the red, because red wavelengths are breaking through the atmosphere.

A Watchful View

Starfish

Living at the beach, you see a lot of Starfish, also known as Sea Stars, in windows and in stores, but you hardly see them washed up on the beaches.   With a life span up to 35 years and ranging in size from 4.7 inches to 9.4 inches, the Starfish live on the floor of the ocean.  They have no brain and no blood, but they do have a skeleton.  They eat mussels, clams, and bivalves.   Occasionally, they catch small fish.

Such a Beauty
