Simple & Quick Ornament

A quick, simple and personalized ornament for you!  All you need is a circle cutter, round tab punch, hole punch, stamp, ink and a photo to complete the project.  I did put acetate over the photo, but that's optional.  Do you like it?

Christmas cards galore!

We made Christmas cards galore here!  It was lots of fun and I was busy every moment with stampin' sisters coming from 1 pm until 10 pm.  All together over 140 cards were created here!  Everyone is so sweet, creative and wonderful!

Artist? Me?

During the week of Oct. 15-Oct. 18, I was asked by 5 different people if I was an artist.  Earlier in the week, I decorated tables for our Relief Society dinner and fireside.  Later on in the week a lady saw me drawing out layouts for Christmas cards and asked me if I was a graphic artist.  I said I wasn't an artist, but that my dad is!   I told my Mom about the comments I got.  I thought if I were an artist I'd have to take classes, at least.  She said I could consider myself an artist just because I do artistic things.  She also said that lots of people don't take classes and consider themselves artists.  Hmm, that made me feel good.  Then I talked to my dad about the artist questions and the compliments I got.  My dad gave me the biggest compliment of all.  He said, "You can tell them you're more than a graphic artist, you're a graphic designer."!  I don't know if the head swell has gone down yet!  LOL!

Christmas Card Samples

I have been working madly drawing out layouts and making samples for you all!  So far I have 12 samples, we'll see which ones make "the cut" to the Card Clubs!  I love traditional Christmas colors, so that will be evident in the samples.  I just have to work out a couple of details before I can show you card samples.  I'll keep you posted!

Stampin' the night away!

Here we are stampin' the night away!  We had a great time just creating cards, laughing and enjoying the company of "sisters!"  A few of the girls already asked me which cards we'll be making for November!  I love this card club.  They fill my well.  Thanks so much, girls!
