First Occasions Mini Set Card

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! Ours was a good one. With Christmas over, I finally got to do some stamping. It was so good to stamp again!

I got to play with some of my new clear-mounted stamps from the upcoming Occasions Mini. I've been dying to try them out! This set, Love Bandit, is such a cute set. I know I'm going to have a lot of fun with it. I used the SC246 sketch from Splitcoaststampers. I really like how it turned out.

My Digital Studio Christmas Page

This is my latest creation using My Digital Studio. This page is included with one of the newest downloads for My Digital Studio, Christmas Cocoa II Digital Kit (#120880). This page is one of the templates that come in the kit. All I did was add my pictures, move a couple ornaments, enlarge the pictures a little bit, and add some journaling. That's it! This new download comes with papers, embellishments, and other project templates. You get all of this for only $9.95. I got this download free by completing the certification program Stampin' Up! offered to demonstrators. Not only did I get certified for My Digital Studio, I also got some free stuff! Can't beat that!

Remember when I said that My Digital Studio isn't just for scrapbooking? Well, I have used it for something else last week, and you've been looking at it for a few days now. I made my blog header above, and the background border on each side of my blog using My Digital Studio. It was so much fun, and I'm really happy with the way it turned out! I hope you like it, too.

Dormant Stamp Sets Retiring!

Stampin' Up! has announced that it's retiring almost all of the sets that are on the dormant list. The sets on the dormant list are no longer in the current catalog, but can still be purchased. I just checked, and all but 2 of the dormant sets are retiring. One of the sets that's retiring is one of my favorites, Branch Out. The pictures on the left are two cards that I've made using this set. It's a perfect sets for all seasons! I just love it.

If you would like to purchase any of these stamp sets, you only have until JANUARY 4, 2010 to do so. After that, they're gone forever!

To see the list of the sets that are retiring, just CLICK HERE. You can see pictures of the sets by going to my website and clicking "Shop Now." You'll have to do a search for each stamp set to see them. The best way to do this is to put the item # in the search box.

2010 Calendar Class

I'm SO sorry that I haven't posted for over a week! You've probably been wondering if I was still alive! I had Thanksgiving at our new house, and I had A LOT to do to get this house in good enough shape to have people over. The last couple of days I've been sick. I'm still a little weak, but I'm feeling better.

I was getting bored just sitting around, so I decided to make this calendar this afternoon. This is the calendar that will be made at my 2010 Calendar class on January 9. To find out more about this class, please go to my EVENTS CALENDAR.

I got this idea from the Stampin' Up! Regionals I attended back in September. I still can't believe all of the ideas I've used from that Regional, and there are still more I want to use. I love being a demonstrator! Yes, I can come up with my own stuff, but it helps out so much to have Stampin' Up! help me with ideas. I've learned so much since becoming a demonstrator! With all of the ideas I've learned, it helps me broaden my creativity when coming up with my own creations. If you think this sounds good to you, you may want to become a demonstrator, too! If so, please CONTACT ME. I'd be happy to help you in any way I can!
