Hello again to all my lovely readers. It’s been a while since I’ve last picked up the metaphorical pen and written to you. What has been going on?
Now that July has ended I wanted to look back on some of my favorite products this past month. Whether it was colors, Designer Series Paper, or stamp sets; I wanted to share with you guys what I’ve been loving. I tried to be more adventurous with my stamping and I think I’ve branched out a ton from when I had started. I know I have a long way to go before I’ve really gotten far away from my comfort zone, but I think starting with different things I’ve loved will help me as well as you into pushing your own limits!
Today is Mother’s Day and for some it’s a time to celebrate the women in our lives. This week I wanted to tackle some card designs for Mother’s Day but I wanted to make sure to include everyone in this post! I know I’m grateful to have a great relationship with my mother (who also happens to be a Stampin’ Up! demo herself) and so today’s post is dedicated to her; for showing me the world of Stampin’ Up! and for being my own personal cheerleader.
With the snow melting at last and spring peeking around the corner, I finally get inspired to stamp. This is the time of the year when we find out which of our favorite products will be retiring and to say goodbye some fun colors. When I got my sneak peek at the new 2018-19 Annual Catalog and I had only three words; I can’t wait! I am so excited for all the new goodies coming your way!
Well this week has been quite hectic so I decided to show you guys my little sanctuary! I love having a space to escape from the world and get to stamping. I’m still working out how I prefer to have things organized and even recently updated my desk to have lots of room to get messy while stamping! I love seeing every stamp room that’s out there and I wanted to share mine with you.
The day is finally here; the 2018 Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration have arrived and I feel like I could be dancing all around my stamp room! When I got to sneak a peek at these amazing products back in November I was in love. There are so many versatile and amazing sets, I wanted to buy the whole catalog right then and there. Not to mention the innovation that has gone into some of my favorite products. Today starts some of my favorite months in the Stampin’ Up! year. Sale-A-Bration lasts until March 31, 2018 and the Occasions Catalog goes all the way until May 31, 2018!
To kick off these next few months I wanted to challenge myself to create a group of cards around 1 color scheme. My go-to was black and white with a pop of color and some gold thrown in. Instead of going for one of my usual colors I decided to switch things up and use a color I almost never do. It even became one of my favorite colors I’ve ever used!
I can’t believe that 2017 has come to a close and it’s time for a new year already. These past 12 months have been nothing short of amazing for me as a Stampin’ Up! independent demonstrator. What have I accomplished in this year that seems to have flown by?
