Have you ever thought...

about starting your own business?  About how great it would be to get all your Stampin' and Scrappin' supplies at a discount?  Well, you're in luck!  Through the end of July you can join Stampin' Up! for only $99.  That's right!  It's less than $100!  AND you get a bonus project as a gift!

If you already own a lot of stamps, cardstock, or ink pads, it's OK.  You can customize your kit to suit your needs and/or personality.  Here's a preview of the items in the $99 kit (but remember you can substitute most of the items).

Home Again, Home Again

Good morning Stampers!  I have to tell you that last week was AWESOME!!  I attended the Stampin' Up! Convention in Salt Lake City and I had a BLAST!!!  We had classes, fun demonstrations, beautiful make-n-takes, swapping with other demos, yummy food, and the list goes on!

I shared a room with a demo from Colorado.  Hi, Kimberley!  She was so sweet.  I made her a little gift and now that she has it, I wanted to share it with you.

Here it is closed.  It is a "rolling tote" but I forgot to take a picture of the back.  It has a cute ribbon handle and marbles for "wheels."  Here's a picture of it open and packed with some treats.
I thought it turned out so cute.  I know I will have to make another one.  If I can find the pattern again.  I found it somewhere out in Blogland.  I hope you all like it, too.

I have to say that I really did have a great time at convention.  I have so many great project ideas swimming around in my head it isn't even funny! 

Well, I guess that's it for today.  I'm still recuperating from the busy-ness that is convention.  All the walking and standing in line.  But it was worth every step and every line I stood in.  Remember, if I can stamp, you can, too!

I'm SOOOO excited!

I am leaving on Tuesday for the Stampin' Up! convention in Salt Lake City, UT!  I am so excited I can hardly stand it.  I hope I can sleep between now and then!  I'm going to get to meet a bunch of other demonstrators that I've gotten to know online, learn a bunch of neat new stuff, and make some awesome projects!  Any demonstrator can go to convention, and right now it's easier than ever.  Right now you can sign up to be a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator for only $99! 

I bet you really came to see some picture of projects.  I actually have some to share with you today.  These are swaps I'm taking to convention.  I will trade mine with someone for one of theirs.  Doesn't that sound like a lot of fun?  When we are all done, everyone has a BUNCH of great samples and ideas to take home.

Here are mine.  Let me know if you like them.

IT'S HERE!!!!!

 Those of you who know Stampin' Up! know what I'm talking about.  That's right!  The new 2011-2012 Idea Book and Catalog!  They are here in my house looking for good homes.  LOL   If you want to look at the new catalog NOW you can find it on the left hand side of my blog.  See it over there?  

I know I haven't shared any pics lately, but boy have I been busy!  I'm leaving in 9 days for Salt Lake City and my firs Stampin' Up! Convention!  I'm so excited!  I promise to share something before I leave.  And I promise to bring back a BUNCH of great new ideas to share with you!

Remember, if I can stamp, you can, too!
