Inspired by Project Life

Hey everyone!  Welcome back for another incredibly talented group of Grand Vacation Achievers sharing their creativity with you!!!  Our projects this month will be inspired by our fabulous product line - Project Life by Stampin' Up!

I couldn't help but share more than one project with you!  I used the Seasonal Snapshot 2015 card collection to create three VERY quick and easy Christmas cards for you!

 This first project was created using the Seasonal Snapshot Project Life 2015 cards and a greeting from the Versatile Christmas stamp set featured in our Holiday Catalog!  I used a bit of Cherry Cobbler ink and baker's twine to embellish the card...and that is all!  A beautiful card in less than 30 seconds!
The two remaining cards were also done using the Seasonal Snapshot cards!  The one on the right, I used a pre-cut and pre-scored crumb cake note card and some of the 1/4" cotton real red ribbon to embellish it.

Literally, these three cards took me less than 2 minutes to create!  With the number of Christmas cards we all create, don't you want to be able to get them done quickly?  Here is your chance!

If you are not a memory keeper / scrapbooker do NOT overlook the Project Life by Stampin' Up! product line!!! You can make awesome cards in a flash!

Hey friends!

Welcome to the home of the Stamp-Patty's!!  I am excited to be sharing the October 2015 Stamper's Dozen Blog hop with you all!  Not only is it our Happy Fall edition....but I am celebrating my 50th Birthday!!!  October 15, 1965  - I can't believe 50 years of my life has passed!  What an amazing journey it has been!!!

Remember, I am celebrating ALL month!  For every $50 you spend through my website or direct with me, I will send you a $5.00 off your next order!!  I already have 10 of you to send certificates too!  I'd like it to be 50 more...in honor of my 50th birthday of course!!

Today I am sharing a few projects with you!  While they are not all mine, I love sharing the work of my downline and/or customers!

This first project is one of mine.  It is one that my monthly club members is making this month!  Using the pre-cut/pre-scored note cards and our beautiful designer paper called "Into the Woods".

I used the 2-1/2" circle punch to punch out a piece of the beautiful flower bouquet from one of the sheets.  Using the "Acorny Thank You" stamp set I did the greeting and the acorn! I finished it off with a piece of our Pumpkin Pie cotton ribbon!

I am thrilled to share two additional samples made by members of my downline, Rachel Bolte and Judy LaLima!

Happy October! Happy 50!

Hey friends!

Wishing you a very Happy October and a wonderful fall season!

As you all know, I NEVER want to give up summer
but October is a great time of year.  The leaves are turning, days are getting cooler, and it is the month of my birth!  This year is a special birthday -- the big 5-0!!  Yup, 50 already!

I spent some time this week going through old photos of my small family.  Those of you that know me well know that my family members have all passed and the few memories that I do have and all of the incredible friends that I have made through Stamping' Up! are very important to me.  I thought I'd like to share some of my favorites with you!  This one is of my mom and me.

To celebrate my 50th birthday, I would like to offer a small gift to all of you!  For every $50 in orders placed with me, I will give or send you a $5.00 off your next order with me!  Woo Hoo!

Sure wish I knew how old I was here.... I'm thinking under a year?  What do you think?

I guess I know why I don't sleep much now...must have gotten all I needed way back when! lol

So help me celebrate my 50th birthday and you will receive the gift!  Spend $50 and get back $5!!
