March 29

Once again I have been working on swaps:)  I have an event coming up with three different shoe box swaps.  I am showing a picture of my first swap for the swap-a-thon.  I embossed the DSP first then cut the flowers in the Big Shot with the Fancy Flowers die.  I think it came out great!  But yet it is very simple and quick to put together.

Sorry I haven't posted sooner, things have been busy and with six kids you can imagine how things really get insane.  Trying to find time to stamp is very difficult:)  But I make sure I do it because I love it so much!!!  I have also had workshops - woohoo!!  They went really well and we had alot of fun at them.

I also saw a stamp set that my upline had so I thought I would share it with you, it is the "Statement of the Heart".  I absolutely love it and if you love stamping, creating and stamping up as much as I do, you will love it too.

"To LOVE what we do and SHARE what we love, as we help others enjoy CREATIVITY and worthwhile this we make a DIFFERNCE.    -Stampin' Up

I just love that.  It reminds me that through all the craziness in my life I have my stamping and that makes me happy!  And I love to share stamping and creating with others that makes me happy too:)

Happy Stamping and Creating!!!

Well regionals in Hartford were awesome.  Even though Shelli did not attend the event we all had a blast and learned so much....from new techniques, to workshop presentations, the +ONE goals , using the new three way punches and going over the new summer mini:)  Swaps were amazing.  There were so many wonderful cards that people made..I was so happy with everything about the event.  And let me tell you how awesome the make and takes were to make!!!!  I am posting picture of the ones I have finished so far.  They really are nice.  So who is going to Convention?  Want to go so bad....still saving up for the trup:)  Hope you are all stamping and having a wonderful time!!!!

Hope you enjoy looking at all the regional make and takes!!!  I really need to get a better

Happy Stamping!!!!

Ok so who loves SWAPS????  I certainly do.  As a matter of fact I think I am totally addicted.  But there are two parts to this addiction: First I love to create new things, this gives me a reason to stamp!  Second who doesn't love receiving other cards, or for that matter anything in the mail:)  I love to see other people's creations.  It inspires me and gives me some great ideas for my own cards.  I check out Stampin' Connection all the time to see what kind of SWAPS are out there.  I love it!!!  Here is a little 3x3 Easter card I made for a SWAP I am sending out today.  Hooray for SWAPS!  If anyone knows about anymore SWAPS let me know.  This is my new addiction:)
