This is a swap card that I got from Norma Artman at a recent quarterly downline demonstrator meeting in Janesville.  She used the pinwheel Sizzlit die on a Vaentine card.  Guess I better buy it too!

This was the valentine card that we did at my stamp club this weekend.  I cased it so it wasn't my own creation but I really liked how it turned out with a couple of modifications.  Now to finish my Valentine cards to send out!

    I received this framed art from my upline Norma Artman.  What a cute idea combining our stamps, punches, card stock and designer series papers into a home decor item!

    As part of Stampin Up's 25-year anniversary celebration, they're bringing back some of our favorite stamp images from the last quarter century and combining them into 12 sets, which will release-one set per month-during 2013. Even better, along with some great classic images, each "Best of" set will also include a never-before-seen image! Check back here every month to see a new Best of stamp set.

    Some things to remember:

     •All Best of stamp sets will include 3-5 images, including a never-before seen image, and will be priced at $14.95.

      •While we are releasing just one Best of stamp set per month (with a new theme each month), all of the Best of sets will be available until March 31, 2014.

    •A new flyer will be released every month for each new Best of set.

    •All Best of stamp sets are available in Clear-Mount only.

    As a special incentive to collect the Best of stamps, starting in February we're including a collector's card and 25-year proof of purchase sticker with every Best of set. Collect six stickers, and send it in to redeem a FREE set of your choice valued up to $14.95! Free sets must be redeemed no later than April 30, 2014.

    You wanted more? You got more! Stampin' Up! had a great response so far to their experiment with single stamps. So much so that they are making ten more never-before-seen images available as single stamps available through March 31, 2013.
    Check out the Single Stamps Page on my website for more details for these great new single stamps.

    This is a framed art present that I got from my upline Norma Artman with a picture of us at the Stampin' Up! National Convention in Salt Lake City.  This is just another way that you can use your stamping products to create home decor.

    This picture was taken in my stamping room closet that stores all my 8 1/2  x 11" card stock and 12 x 12" card stock and designer series papers.  I have each color or packet labeled for easy selection.

    This video is mostly for anyone that is not familiar with how to mount the clear
    stamps with the image or just as a refresher for those already using the clears stamps.

    I made this gift card for my granddaughter's birthday this month while I was making my Christmas gift cards.  I used the color coach for my card stock selections which are colors I wouldn't necessarily put together but I liked the finished product and it was very simple to make.
