Stamping & Scrapbooking, Stamping & Card Making

Eastern Bloom Card

Stamping & Card making, Stamping & Scrapbooking, what's your hot button?  Which came first card making or scrapbooking?  As you can see cards and scrapbooks have similar elements: Title (Greeting), Pictures or focal point, accessories or embellishments, journaling or verse.

The handsome color combination of Night of Navy, Marina Mist and Whisper White along with the Eastern Bloom stamp set (retiring June 30) make both a great card and a great scrapbook page.

My dear and Wonderful Friend is from the Retiring stamp set All Holidays.  The Print was colored with a Night of Navy marker and the script was color with a Marina Mist Marker. Huff, then stamp.

Eastern Bloom Scrapbook
Doesn't the stamped area look like Designer Paper?  The "film strip band was created By stamping a band of flowers, then layering with a darker strip of card stock punched with the Spiral Punch (Retiring, while supplies last).

Love the coordinating Satin Ribbon.  My dear Kind & Wonderful friend card has a touch of Marina Mist Satin Ribbon and the Time Scrapbook Page ruffles a length of Night of Navy Satin Ribbon.

Robin's Stamping Tip

  • When random stamping also start with the largest image first (in the sample the largest image is the large Night of Navy flower) and then fill in with the smaller images.
  • Be sure to stamp off the edge of your paper leaving partial images.  Stamping just whole images inside the edges looks contrived.

Alaska Cruise

Joe & HunterHi Friends,  Just wanted to share with you our Alaska Cruise.  Yes, it was everything we thought it would be and more.  Our trip started with a delightful visit with our Son, Grandson and Daughter-in-Law, who just happen to live near Seattle, our taking off point.

SkagwayOf all the ports, Skagway was our  favorite.  We stepped back into time aboard the historic White Pass & Yukon Route Railway.  The beauty of it took our breath away.

  Joe at SkagwayJoe and I enjoyed a bit of an adventure  breathing clean mountain air on a wilderness trek to the Laughton Glacier through an old growth rain forest.

Giddy with ExcitementGiddy with excitement the first day aboard the ship,  we took pictures of everything.  Our room was a lovely balcony room on the 9th deck.

Tracy Arm FjordNothing could prepare us for the majestic  beauty of Tracy Arm Fjord.  And, yes, the ice chunks really are that blue!

Waiters Celebrity InfinityWe were treated like royalty aboard the Celebrity Infinity.  The last night aboard ship we expressed appreciation to our waiters, Freddie & Parwouta and then they presented us with flaming Baked Alaska.

Pillow GiftsEach evening after a fine dinner a "pillow gift" from Stampin' Up! awaited us.  My personal favorite was this softer than soft blanket.

  Ketchican
Ketchikan's Creek Street has a colorful past and is still beautiful today.  It was once known as the "Red Light District".

Dream a Little

When I started with Stampin' Up! 5-1/2 years ago I never dreamed that taking such an amazing trip was on our horizon.  I just wanted to receive the discount on my stamping supplies and earn little extra spending money.

Imagine waking up each day with a smile on your face and a spring in your walk, because you are actually enjoy your work.  Imagine working from your home and setting your own hours.  Imagine earning free stamping products and dream vacations doing what you love, (stamping and paper crafting).  Imagine working with other ladies that are as passionate about paper crafting as you are.  Imagine paying off that bill that's nagging you. That's just some of the benefits you can enjoy as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and a member of The Ink-spirations.

Perfect Timing

June's Retirement list marks the end of our business year which makes it a perfect time to join the Stampin' Up! Team.  

  • All demonstrators who sign up in June will receive four 2010-2011 Idea Books & Catalogs and eight 2011-2012 Idea Books & Catalogs.  
  • Your first official Stampin' Up! quarter would begin with July, the beginning of a new Stampin' Up! year and just in time for the launching of the new Catalog.  Starting in June gives you time to plot and plan for July.
  • And....An all new Wow Stampin' Start Program also launches in July!

Have You Thought about what it would be like to turn your hobby into a business?  Let's get together to chat either by phone or in person.

Have a fabulous day,
