Stampin'Up! with VanGogh


It says, "The Way to Know life is to love Many things."
This is the first card that I was totally happy with that is all my own! All images and materials are Stampin'Up! except the main paper which I got at Paper Poet on Columbia Street,New Westminster. Pat went behind my back last fall and ordered this set from Lillian for me as a surprise. I love this chocolate chip brown color with everything. If you can't eat chocolate everyday...

Stampin'Fun for Everyone

Check out this set! It is so retro looking! Reminds me of Patterns of Friendship too, one of my favorites.
Rubber stamping is an amazing outlet for creativity from novice to advanced and everywhere in betwee! I am continually challenged, learning and inspired by the creativity I see shared by other papercrafters. I was out of touch with my creative side for a long time after I started having my children until I discovered Stampin'Up. Lately I have seen just how much I am touching those around me. It is such an honor to receive cards handmade by friends who have been inspired to do some stamping because I took the time to share with them the techniques getting me excited. It is very good to know that I have helped them be able to bless everyone in their circle with cards that they made just because I made time to share my talents. The joy just keeps growing in so many different ways! I would have to say that scrapbooking or cardmaking isn't only for the "crafty and creative" types. It's for anyone who needs a creative outlet or therapy! Lower your bloodpressure, start stamping. It is so therapeutic to get together with friends and make cards and scrap together. I also learn so much sharing ideas with others. No one should stamp alone!

Christmas Card


Look at this beautiful Christmas card I recieved from Alison last week. I love those designer papers. They're double sided as well. What a simple design. I love it! One stamp, some papers and a piece of ribbon. I'll bet she stamped a stack of them. All images are Stampin'Up!

Carte Postale





I just made this beautiful blue card with Alison. I love this set. The versatility is amazing. If you combine it with the wheel and handle or the matching papers you would be eligible for the 50% off promotion and the number of sets you can order with this promo is not limited to only one. No this set does not come in English. I love the Night of Navy and the Bordering Blue combination she used. How often do you come across a card this elegant and simple that doesn't have any embellishments. Also the only tools you need are the wheel and the punches! Wow, she's done it again. Impressive. All images are Stampin'Up Copyright.

Isn't this cute?


I made this at one of Alison's Christmas stampcamp's a while back. I think it was Eleanor's design. This is a great way of many to use the Holiday Tag Team set isn't it! This card is so simple and could be done with so many sets actually

Lilstamper's been at it again!

All images are copyright Stampin'Up! Wow this is a beautiful window box. I recently made something similar without the window in and it was fun! It looks like she used her initials but you could put pictures there too.
I love what she's done with the domino. It looks so shiny and bright. Do you think Santa has time to juggle snowballs? Well, not at this time of year. My son just filled out his letter to Santa. It says simply, "I saw an ad on T.V. for you and Canada Post." Wow children are amazing. I thought it would be all gimme, gimme, gimme. Marvin is really excited especially each and every time we drive by Moody Park or Herbert Spencer because they both have huge lit up trees. He yells, "Look Mommy! A Christmas Tree!" and I mean yells. His Christmas concert is this Wednesday night. I am working(groan). I hope there's a dress rehearsal. I'm going to dress him up like Jesus or maybe a white shirt will do. Wouldn't want to offend anyone. Don't forget about the stamps! It's not too late to make Tags and Christmas thank-you notes or even New Years cards if you were too busy in December and didn't get around to it.

Beautiful Christmas Papercrafts




The snow flurries card was made with Alison Solven and her friend Eleanor at a fabulous stamp camp last month. You can check out Alison's blog here: All images are Stampin'Up!

Stampin'Up! Promotion

It probably hasn't escaped your attention that I enjoy papercrafts. Most of my supplies come from a home party based company called Stampin' Up. They are well known in the industry and sell good quality stamping and paper products. In fact, one of my good friends is a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. I've been buying their products almost exclusively and it makes more sense for me to also represent this company. I am giving it a shot! If anyone wants to learn more about these products, host a party or become a demonstrator or just play with stamps and paper let me know! You can email me at meatballsspaghetti@hotmail.com or leave a comment.
