Happy Friday! Boy do the weeks fly by. So much has been going on with me lately that I can't believe its Friday already. Of course I'm not complaining. I love the weekends. Weekends give me a chance to relax and the opportunity to catch-up on tasks that I may not have completed during the week.
Tomorrow I will be attending the inspection for the new home I am planning to purchase. I am so excited to have made it to the point in the home buying process. I am a first time home buyer so I have no idea what to expect, but I am praying for a good review. God has been so good to me thus far, so who am I to doubt him at this point. I'm sure everything will go according to his plan. I am just so thankful for all that he has provided me. God is so good.
Well on with today's card. Today I've decided to showcase a card I made awhile back but just forgot to post. This card features Stampin' Up!'s SU's Elegant Soiree designer series paper, and the Elegant Lines embossing folder. Although the hostess stamp set and the patterened paper that make up this card have since retired, I still thought this would be a beautiful card design to highlight today.
If you still have the Elegant Soiree designer series paper and the stamp set in your collection you can certainly recreate this design. I am a bit of a hoarder when it comes to my designer series paper so if you are anything like me, I am sure you too laying in your craftroom somewhere. Well that's all for now. I wish all you a happy and blessed weekend.
Until next time, Happy Stamping!

Today I decided to show you all a card design I made several weeks back using Stampin' Up!'s Artistic Etchings stamp set. This beautiful yet versatile stamp set is great for any occasion. I am extremely happy Stampin' Up continued this stamp for the 2011-2012 Idea Book and Catalog.
Tonight is my monthly Stampin' Up! card party. I can't wait to join the girls with a night full of good food, good friends, good chatter and of course lots of stamping. I will try and show you the cards that we make tonight in my upcoming blog posts.
Have a great weekend everyone!!

Continuing with the the Just Believe stamp set, today's card design is another Crafting Elegance original highlighting the beautiful images in this adorable stamp set. Don't you just love the color combination of pear pizzaz, poppy parade and whisper white? I think these three colors compliment each other just wonderfully. When I started out making this card, I was at a lost for ideas. But I simply started layering the colors on top of each other and viola... an instant creation. All the layers in this card just really seem to make a statement. Don't you just love it when you when you let your creativity flow and come up with a card design that is so beautiful!
Hope you all enjoyed today's card design.
Until next time....happy stamping!

Well it is officially here. The 2011-2012 Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalog that is, and it is absolutely gorgeous. Stampin' Up has out done themselves once again. The new catalog has tons of new stamps, designer series papers, a brand new set of In-colors for 2011 and an array of embellishments, ribbons, and accessories to make your next crafting project coordinated and complete.
One of the newest features to the Catalog this year are the hostess rewards. As a hostess you no longer are restricted to purchasing hostess stamp sets and designer papers based on the level of sales you party achieves. Instead Stampin' Up! now allows you to earn hostess dollars from the sale of your home party that can be used on dedicated hostess items or any item within the catalog. This new concept of hostess rewards program is so much better than the previous program and the flexibility to purchase what you want with your hostess dollars no longer limits your buying selection.
Another new addition to this year's Idea Book and Catalog is the fact that the Decor Elements are no longer in a separate catalog. Instead SU has placed the Decor Elements products right inside of the IBC. No longer do demonstrators like myself need to carry two catalogs to workshops for crafters to view.
If you would like to receive your own free copy of the 2011-2012 Idea Book and Catalog simply purchase $100 in Stampin' Up products from my website, and I will ship one to you for free.
If you would like to browse the catalog, simply click on the Catalog picture on the left hand side bar to view all the new pretties, Stampin' Up! has to offer.
Until next time, Happy Stamping!!
