BIG NEWS!!! Stampin’ Up! is so excited to let you know they’ve partnered with the amazing Becky Higgins to bring you the real deal-authentic Project Life products, now in exclusive Stampin’ Up! colors and designs. If you’ve somehow missed the Project Life craze and are wondering what it’s all about, I’ll fill you in: it’s a super simple, totally affordable way to get your photos into albums: you just slip your photos into Photo Pocket Pages and add designed cards. It’s a back-to-basics approach to documenting your life. In a nutshell, it’s all about spending more time making memories and less time scrapbooking them. More information when the products are available will be coming soon.

Just Say Hello

By | April 1, 2014

Have you seen Oprah’s “Just Say Hello” campaign?

There’s no better and easier way to say hello to someone than to send them a card. It’s rare to receive a nice card in the mail these days, and it is certain to brighten their day. A hand-made card will put an even bigger smile on their face. photo We will be making this particular card at my upcoming Stamp Camp on April 27, 2-5pm.
