Wonderful Watercolor Crayons

Last night I held my watercolor class and we had a blast. I just love watercoloring. It is very relaxing and a great technique to just sit in front of the TV and color. The watercolor crayons from Stampin' Up! are just fantastic. They are high quality crayons in all 48 of our beautiful colors. We also carry the neutral crayons which I believe are a must have. They are perfect for shading!!

Here are a few cards we made last night!
Not sure what the weather is like in your area, but here I am flat FREEZING. It snowed a wee bit tonight. Just enough for me not to drive. It really is safe for all of us if I stay off the roads with snow. :)
Well, this is all I have to share for now. Hope you are having a great week!

Feeling a little happy!!!

Howdy folks! This little card is so FUN! We did this in club this month! I love how you open it and it just says WOW! I used the Valentines Bundle for this. What a GREAT deal. You can still catch this Valentine deal for a few more days. You get the Happy Heart Day stamp set along with the medium cello bags and two rolls of ribbon (5/8" Regal Rose and Real Red Grosgrain). If you have valentine treats to make, this is a great stamp set to use. I love the little mouse, which I nicknamed Phil. Do ya like??
Anyhoo, have a fabulous day!!!!

A big Sale is coming SOON!

Oh boy! Sale-a-bration is just around the corner. Starting February 1st those beautiful stamps will be available. Who thought we could get so excited about these beautiful stamps??? Here is a little card to get you excited. It uses a few of my favorite things and went to a sweet friend of mine here! She had a birthday, and I thought this suited her perfectly.

I love Ginger Blossom paper and it went great with this Sale-a-bration set!!! I just love it.

Hope you had a great weekend. Lots of stamping going on here. :)

It's been busy in the stamp room. After getting back from Palm Springs, Ca

I have been catching up on all kinds of stamping projects for classes this month and next. Leadership was amazing. The best part is seeing friends I haven't seen in a while and catching up with them. All my roomies were a blast and we shared many laughs over the 4 days. I loved seeing all the beautiful palm trees there. It was warm and just GREEN!!!! Much different than what I am seeing here... SNOW!

To the right you will see my swap card I had at Leadership. I just love this little bird set. I love to watercolor so this is a great set to watercolor.

Lastly, this little tin was a project at my stamp camp this past Wednesday. Very fun camp and we all had a few laughs. I love that Ginger Blossom paper! It is so delicate looking and made this tin just beautiful. I stamped on the front of the tin using White Stazon and the Embrace Life set. Oh my, another fabulous stamp set. It is wonderful to watercolor with. I love it. My little tin is filled with 12 delicious chocolate nuggets wrapped in the beautiful Ginger Blossom paper. Love it.

Hope you have a great week. Happy stampin'!

A scrappin' good time!

Many of you know I just love scrapbooking. I want to share a few layouts I have done in the past I think you might enjoy. Most of these layouts are 8.5x11. I will really miss the 8.5x11 albums, however it will push me to get back in the 12x12 mode. Here is a layout that is fun, and NO my kids are NOT naked. It is a cute one though. :)

Enjoy your day!!!!!!!

January Already?

I think I go down in the history books for worst blogger. Really, not on purpose. Just no time. I found these last couple of weeks refreshing as I spent great time with my family. I was also able to get caught up on my class schedule and work on projects that have been pinging my little brain for some time. I have now turned what once looked like a winter wonderland/North Pole stamp room into a Valentines Haven. It feels so good. The kids are happy as clams playing with new Christmas toys and I am happy playing in my stamp room.

I have been creating some fun projects for upcoming January classes and getting ready for a GREAT time in Palm Springs with my Stampin' sista's for Leadership Confrence. There just seems to be such excitement in the air right now. We have a fabulous new catalog out. If you haven't seen it, OH MY! You are missin' the boat. It is just beyond fabulous. Call me to get yours today. You really NEED it. Beautiful samples. Then there is the excitment of Leadership coming up. Getting swaps ready, little gifties for my girlfriends, and the impending bladder control from all the laughter we share at these events. It was a wonder I survived Convention. Truly one of the best times I have EVER had. So many great laughs. Then lastly, there is the excitment of Sale-a-bration. Wowser. Really some great things getting ready to happen. Yippie.

Well, now that I babbled a little longer than expected, here are a few sneek peeks of some things I have been working on.
Just a few projects. A little scrapbook page I thought went well in my Valentines room. Hope you like. I will share more tomorrow.
Yes, really... I hope to be a better bloggin' chic this year. Actually, it has been 1 year now that I started this little gig. CRAZY!
