New Project Life

New and Upcoming in the 2014 - 2015 Catalog  - Project Life!

We are so so so excited to let you know we’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, we’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.
You’ll be able to order a selection of Project Life products starting May 1! And with the launch of our new annual catalog on June 2, you’ll be able to buy from our complete line of Project Life products.
Can’t wait that long? Stampin’ Up! demonstrators will be able to order the limited selection starting April 21. So if you’re a demonstrator make sure to check the demonstrator website that day; if you’re not a demonstrator, sign up and you can order the products early too!
Here are the items you’ll be able to purchase on May 1:

If you like what you see, please let me know and I will assist you in getting started.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Mother's Day Mom!

To My Mother,

My entire life, you have had this incredible presence of what I choose to do. You have been there to help celebrate all my successes and accept my defeats. You taught me the value of hard work, good judgment, courage and pure honesty. You have shared laughter, smiles and quiet time too.  If I have ever forgot to say thank you I would like to say it today, for your care, your love, and so much more, Thank You and Happy Mother's Day!

Here is the card that I made for my mom, because she is 1 in a million, even though I could not be with her today, because I have a terrible cold and did not want share that with her.

Secret Garden -129144 and Framelits - 129372

My Mother - 133083

Well since I was sick today and could not visit my mother or anyone else, I played in my craft room for a short time today in between naps or coughing.  I made this card using the same basis as above, but turned it into a birthday card.
Petite Petals - 133155 and Punch - 133322
or Bundle it and save 15% - 134822

Another Great Year - 133041
Hope everyone had a glorious day today?  I may have a cold and was home and in bed most of the day, it was still a good day.  The sun was shining, the weather was warm, my husband made me mozzarella with fresh basil, olive oil and balsamic vinegar on toasted begets, (took me back to Italy for a moment), I spoke to my children and I thanked my mom for all she does.  I also got to play in my craft room, what more could I have asked for?

If you need anything, please feel free to contact me or leave me a comment on how you liked the cards.

Thanks so much for stopping by....
