Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, New Jersey
I'm a stay at home Mom and a stamping fool. My husband, the love of my life, and I have four wonderful children aged 7, 5, 2 and 6 months. I spend most of my days taking care of the kids and the house, with very little stamping time. I have only been stamping for about 1 1/2 years, but I have a real passion for it and can't wait to have more time to stamp. For now I get most of my ideas from the great people from Split Coast Stampers and some awesome blogs that I visit on a daily basis. There are so many terrific ideas out there, I just can't get enough. So please join me on my journey to find my creative side, I'm sure we'll have lots of fun along the way. Thanks for stopping by and remember to "Keep On Stampin".

Riley's 7th Birthday

Yesterday was my oldest daughter, Riley, 7th birthday and we had such a great day. Chris, my husband, took the day off from work to make it extra special for her. He also wanted to make sure she got to enjoy one of her presents, her new electric scooter. I think she was happy, what do you think?

We had some family and friends over for ice cream cake after dinner. She received so many wonderful gifts, birthday wishes and best of all - memories that will last a lifetime! For all of you that came to her party or gave a shout out by phone, Thank You so very much for making Riley's day extra special.

The following are cards that Dana, Joseph and I made for our Miss Riley. I used the Party Hearty stamp set, Dana used The Flight of the Butterfly and Joseph used Inspired by Nature and Springtime Stems. Dana and Joe's cards also used Happy Birthday sentiments from a Close To My Heart stamp set.

Dana did such a great job on her card, I only helped her a little bit - mostly just telling her where to stamp. She picked all stamps and colors. Joseph on the other hand, he didn't do very much on his own. He just told me what stamps he wanted me to use and then proceeded to hang all over me while I was trying to stamp - bumping me every time I put the stamp to the paper. I hope you enjoyed seeing the cards. Hope you all have a great day!

Ladybug Card

Hi friends! I know it's been a while since I posted anything, but I hope things change soon. Only 1 1/2 weeks till school starts, then it's just me and my boys - I can't wait!

I just received my Stampin' Up! starter kit, which included some great stamp sets- Flight of the Butterfly, Inspired By Nature, Defining Alphabet, Heard From the Heart, Party Hearty and a Snowflake wheel. Yes I said Snowflake wheel. I could have ordered any wheel but I chose that one because I already have my Christmas card designed picked out and wanted snowflakes in the background. My other Stampin' Up! order will be here on Tuesday, with several more new stamp sets - I can't wait to start using them.

I'm currently working on two different swap cards, some thank you cards and baby cards, as soon as there all complete I will post them right away. For now I'm posting a card that I made for a swap several months ago - I thinks it's sooooo cute! Let me know what you think.

High Point Monument

Hi friends - Glad you stopped by for a visit. Sorry there hasn't been any stamping going on. But I promise there will be soon. I just signed on as a Stampin' Up demonstrator and will soon be receiving my starter kit and my 1st order from the new Fall/Winter Catalog. I have lots of great stuff coming, I can't wait for it to get here!

The reason for the title is that my family and I took an afternoon hike at High Point State Park. At the park there is a 220-foot monument, which we climbed to the top - all 291 steps. I have to say that the kids, including Joe, did better than Chris and I. We were both sweating by the time we made it to the top. We had such a great time and now I like to share some of pictures with you - pictures are good but you have to be there to see how beautiful the scenery really is. Hope you enjoy the photos.

Thanks for stopping by and "Keep on Stampin'".

Meg's Stamping Class

Meg, my friend and Stampin' Up demonstrator held her monthly Stamp Class this past Thursday. I always love to go to classes, we always learn a new technique and make the most adorable cards/projects. This class we made a bookmark card, a birthday with a coupon in it, a word search birthday card and a little envelope gift bag. Take a look at the completed projects to see how cute they are.
Hope you enjoyed your visit. I hope to get some stamping time in soon, I have a couple of great cards lined up to do, I can't wait to share them with you. Thanks for stopping by and Keep On Stampin'.

Card Swap Cards

Hi fellow stampers and friends. Hope you all had a great weekend. I personal feel that the weekend went way to fast. I can't believe tomorrow is Monday already. Another crazy week with the kids. I'm also hoping to get some school clothes shopping done this week. Especially for my Dana, it seems that when I take her shopping for clothes or shoes, they never have her size. So I'm hoping that if we go early in August we will find everything we want/need.
My friend Jenn hosted another great card swap last week, the following are the cards I received - their all so cute. I love these swaps, I like getting new ideas from the cards I receive.
I also posted the card I made for the swap. I made it using my new Nesties - I just love them. Spellbinders just released some new ones, and of course I had to place an order for some more (I haven't even used all of the ones I have).

Enjoy the rest of your day. Thanks for stopping by and Keep On Stampin'.
