Putting Your Own Spin on These

As I am waiting for the Williamsburg Scrapbook Retreat to begin, I am sharing with you the four Scrapbook designs I have created – You will be able to put your own spin on these as they are just samples.   You have the choice to make it your own design by choosing the Designer Series Paper (aka DSP), Photo placers, and the embellishments.

There will be signup sheets for each set of scrapbook pages.

In addition, I will have some retired Stampin’ UP! products available with a special deal — Buy New ~ Get Retired Free!  Or 50% off original price.

I look forward to meeting you and answering any questions you might have.

See you tomorrow!

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!

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.

Watercoloring using the Aqua Painter

Watercoloring using the Aqua Painter was used today to create this Get Well Card for a class on Tuesday.  “Beautiful You” is the featured the Stampin’ UP! Stamp Set.   The stamp set is a set of two cases of stamps featuring three women in different poses, 8 sentiments, and two scribbles that you can use to fill in the dresses.

What I like about this set is that the images are created for the “pen & ink” style of artwork.   Stampin’ UP! out did themselves this year.  This stamp set is one of the many in the 2017 Occasions Catalog.

Walking down Restaurant Row

This scene reminds me of walking down the many side streets going toward the Grand Place in Brussels or going toward Restaurant Row as you head toward Chez Leon.  It brings back many fond memories of our life overseas.  Anyone that has traveled overseas would enjoy creating with this stamp set.

The set is called Mediterranean Moments created by Susan Nygaard one of the Million Dollar Sales Achievers.   Thank You Susan for your beautiful creation!

Stampin’ UP! OnStage

Stampin’ UP! Onstage was held in Atlanta, Georgia on Friday, November 4 and Saturday, November 5.   At my level within Stampin’ UP!, I attended the main event on Saturday only.

The OnStage events whether they be Local or Live, are so exciting to attend.  Swapping cards with other demonstrators happens as you stand in line waiting for the doors to open into a “Room filled with Excitement”.

Stampin’ UP! out did themselves again.  The demonstrators that presented at the event presented some unique ideas spotlighting the new products within the Occasions Catalog.

I had a fantastic time networking with my friends and meeting new friends too.   It is so nice being with other Crafty people as we all have the same interests.

Below are the products I received while at OnStage.   The only thing not pictured was the cute cloth bag which had pictures of new product on them.
