Carols of Christmas Early Release-Weekend Video

I am back!  I have been prepping my supplies for school and also working on lots of sewing projects for family so my stamping was put on the back burner. 

I have my Holiday catalogs prepped and ready for distribution; they go live at the beginning of September!  I splurged and pre-ordered the Painted Harvest stamp set/bundle.  I also just got my backordered embossing paste so I am so ready to stamp a bunch now.  This morning was spent organizing my stamping area which was taken over by SU boxes of catalogs and extra school supplies.  I have a clean desk now and a bottle of Diet Dr. Pepper (and Sweetarts) so I am ready for Monday!  Hooray!

Enjoy the video!

Butterfly Card

My adaptation of Shirley's card
Shirley's instruction sheet and card
Yet again I am wowed by my friend and downline, Shirley.  Here is the second project that she had for her club.  I did change things up a bit at home because I do not have the same stamp sets that she does.  I hope that you enjoy!

Happy stamping!

Cards from my upline Suzanne

Sometimes my upline and I text pics back and forth and we share our club projects.  Suzanne gave me permission to share her sweet cards with you.  She does beautiful work!  I am so very jealous that my embossing paste is on backorder until the end of the month...sniff!  It should ship any day now.

Happy stamping,

Daisy Delight card for Club

Picture of Shirley's inspiration card

My card at the class

My adaptation for club
Wow!  I had so much fun the other day when we drove up to visit my downline, Shirley!  Initially I wanted to go be a blessing to her but she was such a blessing to me!  My daughter and I took up a light lunch to share and then I was able to participate in a bit of her club.  Before I left she loaded me up with a set of her other projects so that I could play with them at home.  What a sweetheart!  It was such a treat to stamp when I did not have to create them but could enjoy someone's creativity.  I will have more projects to post for later days and it triggered more creativity.  Love you, Shirley!

My take aways:
  1. Definitely make time to create an instruction sheet for club projects because those sheets are so handy.
  2. I am super glad that I just splurged on more of the auto collapsible trash bins for club/stamp camps.
  3. I should always bring the photo holder for my cards.
  4. Shirley is Ms. Organization and I could stand to reevaluate my stamping work space!  She even had someone recreate the storage units sold by a popular online storage store.
Happy stamping!
