November Page of the Month

Sneak Peak - Chirstmas Card Class & Color Throwdown

There is a card on the cover of Stampin' Success that caught my eye - it's so simple yet elegant with white on white.  When creating cards for my Christmas class I knew I wanted to put my own spin on the card layout and here's what I created.  It also uses this week's color throwdown colors too.

Fabulous Resource - 2010 Idea Book & Catalog

If you’re having troubles getting your creative juices flowing  a few great places to seek inspiration are blogs, social networking, and publications – the Stampin’ Up Idea Book & Catalog for example is a great place for inspiration. I have been guilty of thinking of my catalog as strictly that – a catalog that houses all the fabulous paper, tools and supplies on my wishlist but that’s not all - it’s a great creative resource! Open any page and you’ll see project ideas that you may want to duplicate or seek inspiration from. I have tried to incorporate this into my activities and workshops so that those in attendance can see why the catalog is a must have tool!

If you’re still finding it difficult and are more of a co-dependent stamper (no worries I’m a co-dependent sewer). I host a month class that you can attend or you can host a workshop in your own home. I bring all the supplies you need – all you have to do is loosely follow my instructions.

Stampin’ should be fun and like anything else we do in life the more we practice the better we become! Remember to have fun and even the best stampers have do-overs.

Time to Give Thanks

Fall is my favorite time of year and it has my favorite holiday - Thanksgiving!  I've always loved Thanksgiving but as an adult I've really come to enjoy it and look forward to hosting my family in my home.  In honor of this month of Thanksgiving.  I thought it would be fun to list something I'm thankful for everyday.  So to catch up here are two things I'm thankful for:
1. A large, loving and supportive family
2. My wonderful husband
