All of a sudden I had some more responsibilities at home and in my community that something had to give. Of course, making cards was and has been a big part of my life. Sending cards for birthdays and special … [Read more...] about It’s Fall – Where Have I Been All Summer???
Hi, There, Stampers! Not much stamping in my first card of July 2023! But I had so much fun making it. This is actually a CASE (Copy and Share) of a card from 2019 that I found on Instagram. That card had nothing to do with Stampin' Up! But I could immediately see how products from the Stampin' Up! Inked Botanicals Suite would work in this design. The key was one of the two punches in that … [Read more...] about Fun With a Suite!

Hi, There, Stampers! This month marks my 15th Year as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. And what a 15 years it has been! As I think about this time period, I realize that there are so many times that just being involved with the Stampin' Up! community has added some life experiences that I'd never have had otherwise. Meeting People I'm not that much of a "people person." I'm somewhat introverted and … [Read more...] about Fifteen Years With Stampin’ Up!

Hi There, Stampers! I was just thinking that, right now, I don't really "need" any more Stampin' Up! products because I've not even scratched the surface of using all the new products I bought last month before I became ill (pretty much better now).
