Directions To My Projects

I’m extremely flattered when people ask me for directions to my projects.  People wanting to make my projects is such a great compliment!  Unfortunately, doing tutorials is very difficult for me.  I work a full-time job, take care of a family (including elderly parents) and barely have enough time to do much of anything including stampin! For these reasons, I only have a list of supplies available at my workshops for the workshop attendees.  I try to answer comments on my posts most of the time, but tutorials are not in the cards at this time.  Plus, the tutorials I have done in the past take me an incredible amount of hours to do, it’s just not what I’m good at!  I’ll try to get better at listing the supplies on the posts in the coming year, this will be my New Year’s resolution to my blog subscribers! Hopefully, this will help you in re-creating my work.

Thanks for visiting my blog over the years and may all of you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Exciting News!!

Until now, clearance items have been limited to demonstrator and online orders to ensure that product was available at the time of purchase. When the Hostess Code was introduced, it became possible to add clearance items and to have them included on workshop orders. To make it even easier to add clearance items to any type of order, we have lifted the ban on placing clearance items on workshop orders.

We still strongly recommend that customers order clearance items on online orders or workshop orders via a hostess code to guarantee availability. Customers may add clearance items to her paper order (for a customer or workshop order), but because clearance items are only available while supplies last, it’s possible that the item will not be available with the order is submitted, making it necessary for you to contact her, find an alternate item and possibly affect hostess benefits.

Blog Changes

Ok, spent 3 hours last night with My Digital Studio, re-downloading all my purchases – did you know that when you purchase an MDS digital image, it stays on your SU account?  I was SO happy to see them all still there!  Well, in any case I made a very cute banner, but I couldn’t get it to fit in my header picture!!!  Uggh!!  But my Graphic Designer/Techie Guru husband said he would work on it for me so stay tuned for a better blog tomorrow!

Light Studio

Someone asked me to post a picture of my light studio, actually it’s a light tent. It’s very cool.  I came with other colored backgrounds as well so I can change them out if I want. Not sure if I will, but you never know.  It’s from Cowboy Studios, I got it on Amazon.com.

Here is a message directly from Stampin’ Up!


May 17, 2012As you know, the 2010-2012 In Colors will retire at the end of the month. It’s hard to believe that it’s already time to say goodbye to Blushing Bride, Concord Crush, Peach Parfait, Pear Pizzazz, and Poppy Parade!

We announced in 2010 during the last color renovation that we plan to refresh the Stampin’ Up! color collections every three to five years. With that in mind, you may want to hold onto your 2010-2012 In Colors supplies in case we add them to a color collection in the future.
