{October 29, 2008}   One sheet wonders

Well, that’s nice.

I was so focused on stamps that for a while all I wanted to do was stamp like Asian style with Kodomonokao or kodomonoinc:


Their stamps look like this: http://www.kodomonokao.com/marche/marche.html

Well, moving on to paper… hope you have fun with One Sheet Wonders:

Got hooked with Diane’s:


Stephanie has a really neat tutorial and template: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?p=5548430#post5548430

And I’m sure splitcoaststampers has more in their gallery when you search ;osw’.

{October 28, 2008}   Impress-ed

I was very happy with my Take 10 by the Sea with Carla over the summer.

Here is the link to new classes for the last quarter of the year: http://www.impressrubberstamps.com/classes/class_list_09_2.pdf

Hope you have as much fun as moi!

I’m thinking of putting together a Take 3 or Take 5 at the local craft store or in the comforts of my home.

I have enough supplies and need help getting it down so I can go to the craft stores without feeling guilty.  lol  Honestly, I need some creative time, but in the mean time, I head over to Olga’s, Amanda’s, Erika’s, Janet’s or Diane’s.  I’m also at JustCards and HeartsInTouch HIT.  Of course everyone’s all time favorite is www.Splitcoaststampers.com

Happy creations!

{October 16, 2008}   Who is going to win?

Toniann has candy for you.

Neat design.

Hope you win!

ps: deadline is coming up on the 20th.

{August 20, 2008}   So Shelli, …?

Neat that the Stampin Up (SU) boss has a blog.


Check it out.  She just started.

Be sure to check out Heidi’s other cool links.  I found this one there =)

{June 5, 2008}   Good deals!

I’ve always enjoyed stamp-a-stacks.

You can’t beat this 10 for $10 deal by Megan Wheeler:


I don’t know how much or if she’s willing to do class by mail kits though but most demonstrators are willing to send you the paper class starters everyone receives at the class in person for $5 shipping.  For additional $5 they may even stamp for you.  You’ll need to have the stamps, inks and punches at home though since most do come with embellishments.

Another one my pal Teresa has purchased for me is by Michelle’s:


She hostesses these 30 for $40 or 60 for $70 events quarterly.  Pictures are available in her creative projects page using the packets Tie the Knot or Summer Days Simply Scrappin’ for this round. =)

Have fun!

How neat is this???

…a program to encourage stamping – I’m in!

Summer Stamping Program – Win prizes for doing what you love.

Do you ever participate in your library’s Summer Reading program?  I sure do and  I love the fact that in the summer I can win prizes just for doing something I love doing anyway.  Well, I can recognize a good idea when I see one, so this summer I’m instituting a Summer Stamping Program where you can win prizes just for stamping!

How does it work?
1.  You have to e-mail me to register — you can’t win if you don’t let me know you want to play.   Just send an e-mail to stampwithdiane@comcast.net [mailto:stampwithdiane@comcast.net] with “I want to Play” in the subject line and your name and phone number in thebody of the e-mail.

2.  Each time you meet one of the raffle ticket criteria you must e-mail me to tell me about it. If you do not tell me you did something to earn a ticket, no ticket will be awarded.


Here are the ways you can earn raffle tickets:
A.  Stamp 3 cards or 2 scrapbook pages outside of one of my classes, workshops or kits and either show them to me in person or e-mail me pictures — 1 ticket (plus a bonus ticket if all items use only Stampin’ Up! products).
B.  Come to one of my classes or purchase a class kit by mail – 1 ticket per class
C.  Place an order of $25 or more outside of a club or a hostessed event (1 ticket for each $25 in purchases.)
D.  Refer a friend I have not met or dealt with in the past to take a class (1 ticket) or host a workshop (2 tickets).  You also get the stamps for these activities for free merchandise through my referral program.
E.  Host a workshop (3 tickets)

Tickets will be awarded starting now through the end of August.  At the end of August I will have a drawing for some fun Stampin’ Up! prizes.

So come on, you have nothing to lose.  Just register and remember to let me know each time you’ve earned a raffle ticket!

NOTE:  This program is open to anyone who has ever purchased Stampin’ Up! products or class kits from me or attended any of my stamping events.

Good Luck and happy stamping!”

Let the stampin’ fun began!

{May 8, 2008}   Book of Me by Diane

A while back, I searched online for a demonstrators near me but I went with a few who lived not so close to me.  They were offering classes that were interesting and at the right price:

I was confident that I had enough creative juices to adapt whatever project that they had going at their places at home by myself.  I certainly had enough stamp sets at home to easily replace whichever they had chosen.  That was the easy part.  I also liked the convenience of predesigned cards and embellishments.  All I needed to do is stamp, color and assemble.

The next few entries will detail my relationships with these awesome ladies.

Let’s start with Diane.

I thought scrapping was really neat so I signed up for Diane’s 12 month Book of Me:
