I'm a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

Back in July I decided to become a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. I am very excited about this new venture. I love paper crafting. I have to really thank my friend Alyce. She introduced me to scrapbooking about 5 years ago and I have taken it to a whole new level. I hope to share my love of paper crafting with some of you at some point. I find it a very calming activity. I can focus on this and forget the world around me for a time. I offer card making demonstrations twice a month. If you find yourself with a spare Sunday please RSVP one of my events and join me for an a couple hours of paper crafting. You will get to try out the latest in Stampin' Up! products, enjoy the company of those who also enjoy paper crafting, and spend a quiet afternoon of you time all for a small fee of $5. If you would like to earn money toward free products just host a demonstration. Ask me how.

A few months ago I took a Copic class to become certified. I love these markers! They are great for use with stamps. They come in a huge array of colors. I am officially a Copic Certified Designer now. They sent me this great little tag to add to my blog. If you ever have questions about Copic markers I am the person to come to as I know quite a lot about them now. I am still in the process of learning how to use them but have found them to be an invaluable tool for my crafting. I got the cool little logo to add to my blog so you will now see it off to the right side of this post.

Summer is almost over.

Yes summer is almost over and with it brings cooler weather, fall, and school is back in session. Tonight I am going back to school. I have been taking some business courses to better sharpen my skills in business. Tonight I start the second portion of my accounting class. Along with the accounting class I will be taking spreadsheet accounting, Quickbooks accounting, and an online Windows class. A full load to be sure! But I am up for the challenge. I'm looking forward to getting underway.

My son starts school next week. 1st! I can hardly believe it. He's grown up so quickly that it makes my head spin. Well he's been busy at the YMCA swimming every morning and playing the rest.
I posted some pictures of my recent work. I've been busily working all summer. Have a look and if you have questions on how to construct these cards please post a comment. I will be posting more creations as they come to me but I wanted to get these on my blog so that I had something on here finally.
Enjoy the rest of summer and the upcoming Labor day holiday!

I did it!

Okay so I finally figured out how to use this blog. It's been a huge learning curve and I still have much more to learn. I started this blog so that I could use it to post my craft creations. I recently became a Stampin' Up! demonstrator so I will no doubt use many of their products. Just for the record I feel like they have some of the best products in the market. I look forward to many years of happy crafting.
