Clear Stamp Case Photo Album

When I sat down to work on a project from my up line Kim VanDiepen the other day, I decided to skip the project and come up with my own using one of the items that went with hers.  I used one of the clear stamp cases to create this mini photo album.  I just love the way it turned out, and I soooooo impressed myself with my creativity. :)  I used the Springtime Vintage DSP from the upcoming Occasions Mini along with the Build a Blossom stamp set, Blossom Petals Punch and Frame Tulips Impressions Folder from the same catalog.  I just love, love, love, all three of these things from this catalog.  I am going to have to order more of the DSP as soon as the catty goes online because I've used all of it!  I hope you enjoy looking at these photos as much as I enjoyed creating the project.
Until next time...
Happy Stamping!

Occasions Mini Sneak Peak/Valentine

The Occasions Mini from Stampin' Up! is about to launch on January 4th and I almost wet myself when I saw the beautiful designer series paper and stamp sets that are in it.  I couldn't wait to get my hands on the things I ordered.  I've had my stuff for a few weeks, but just this week got the opportunity to start playing.  I used the XOXO stamp set and Love Impressions dsp in the catalog to make today's Valentine Card.  Today I am posting only one of the things I've been working on.  I'll spread the rest out over the next few days. Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas Ornaments

Hello Everyone! Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. It has been a few weeks since my last post and I thought before the Christmas season is actually over (it ends on Jan. 6th) I'd post a few photos of some ornaments I made this year for myself and a few friends. They were really easy to do, including coloring the insides of the ornaments. But, they look like they took forever. That's what I like about some of the fun things you can do with Stampin' Up! products. I like the red ornament the best, but I think the other two are pretty too! I used stamp sets from the Holiday Mini. The sets I used are Peaceful Season and Tags til Christmas. I also used the Northern Frost Decorative Strip for the Big Shot. I hope you like them as much as I do. Until my next post...Thanks for stopping by!

P.S. Don't forget! The Holiday Mini Catalog is going to expire soon, so if there is something you've been is the time to order!
