Start your Holiday Cards in August! Christmas Clubs forming Now!

Home Again, Home Again....

Well, after  GREAT week on Marco Island, we are home. Home Sweet Home. All that is missing is Bella. We will pick her up tomorrow from Canine Clubhouse. :) Can't wait to snuggle my girl.

So on the flight home tonight, I pulled out the laptop and worked on some pages. Here is one that I just love because it's got a lot of FUN elements on it.

I started with River Rock Cardstock in the background, and then added the Baroque Overlay Stamp on top of it. I changed the color of the stamp to white, and brought the opacity down quite a bit, so now it looks like it was stamped with Versamark. :)

Then I layered Bashful Blue Cardstock and some stitching, along with Soft Suede Cardstock with a Script Overlay. There is also more River Rock in there...which I added a Polka Dot Stamp on top of, and again, made it white. I love that I can create my own Designer Paper this way. Very cool! 
Then I added some tags and fun words...and of course the star of the show are the pictures. 

I will admit that I spent over an hour on this layout. But it was fun to do! That is what is so great about My Digital Studio. You can use the predesigned templates and just drop your photos in, and be done in 5 minutes...or you can create from scratch and build your page the way you want it! So much flexibility and fun! 

I am glad to be home though...I missed my stamps! And we are getting ready for our New Catalog Stamp Camp coming up this Saturday at 1:00 PM. Did you sign up yet? Don't miss a super fun day!

Hope to see you there!
Thanks for stopping by...

Two posts in the SAME day? WOW!

Well, I am sunburned, so I am taking a break from the beach today....
so while the family is out in the sun,  I am sitting in the A/C working on a couple scrapbook pages. :)

Yesterday, we went on this awesome Dolphin Excursion out of Marco Island Rose Marina. It was a 3 hour tour (sing along now...a three hour tour...). We saw over 20 dolphins! It was AMAZING.
The kids (and adults) had a great time! It was gorgeous being out on the boat. I could have spent all day out there. :)

Part of the excursion was stopping at one of the 10,000 islands surrounding Marco. It was called Barrier Island. It is secluded...and gorgeous! No buildings, just gorgeous SOFT sand, and TONS of shells and the water was incredible. It was stunning.

Emily and I collected a tons of shells...amazing shells. WOW! They are soaking in a bath right now to get the sand and smell out of them...and yes, we checked to make sure there is nothing living in them. :)

So, I wanted to make a page to show this beautiful place. It's simple...but I like my pages that way to keep the focus on the pictures.

On this page I used the Bella Bleu Designer Series Paper, along with some new ruffled polka dot ribbon. The elements (the postcard) is from the Beau Chateau Digital Embellishments's new with this catalog, and it's awesome. It has a great vintage feel/look to it. I find myself reaching for it a lot! 

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek! I love vacation, but I am ready to get home and hit the stamps! :))

Have a great day and weekend!

Scrapbooking on Vacation

I love MDS! 
I love that I can just grab my laptop and scrapbook my vacation while I am still ON vacation! 

How cool is that?

Here is a page I made today of the gorgeous beach we are staying on this week! 

I am one of those people who easily gets behind on my pages. I just never seem to have the time to get it done. But I do have 15 minutes a day to crank out a page. And that is all this took! I have my laptop, and that is all I need to scrapbook wherever I am! Love that! 

I will of course resume stamping projects next week when we return home. We are having a GREAT vacation and I am excited to share more pages with you! 

Thanks for stopping by!

All New, Better than Ever Hostess Benefits!

This is REALLY exciting! I'm sure most of you have heard by now that the Hostess Benefits have changed with the start of this brand new catalog! You have a lot more freedom now… check it out!

You might recall that the last catalogs hostess benefits equaled approximately 10% of your workshop totals.

For example, if you had a workshop that totaled $150, you were entitled to $15 in FREE merchandise.

With the NEW HOSTESS PROGRAM that amount has increased, BIG TIME! Now for that same $150 workshop you earn $25 in FREE MERCHANDISE! WOO HOO! More money to spend anyway YOU choose!

Yes there are still exclusive hostess only selections, but you can choose to get them, or spend your hostess dollars on other things.

In addition, there is the new 1/2 price option!
If you host a $400 workshop, not only will you get $65 in FREE product, you also get a 1/2 price item of your choice! Are you thinking the Big Shot, or some new dies? The wheels are turning!

I am really excited about this new plan because it puts great rewards in your hands!

To check out more of the NEW HOSTESS PLAN, click here!

Now is a great time to host a workshop! The NEW CATALOG is AMAZING! Let me help you get some of those items for FREE - all just by getting together to stamp!

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stampin'!

Another MDS Page

I think I need a 12 step program...I am truly ADDICTED to MDS! I am having SO much fun making all these pages!

Here is another one that I made this week!

These are pictures from our annual summer Cape Cod trip! I love all of the beachy (is that even a word?) colors on this page! I had a ton of fun creating it!

I made 15 pages this week! WOW! That is the most I have done in a year! I just ordered them using Stampin' Up!'s professional print service! The quality is outstanding and the prices are very reasonable ($2.50 for a 12x12 page).

I am getting a lot of questions and interest in MDS. Everyone wants a demo on how to use it! It's so great! So I will set something up in the very near future and hope that you can come check it out! I love that all I have to have is my laptop and I can scrapbook anywhere!

Happy 4th of July to you all! I hope you have a safe and happy weekend!

Thanks for stopping by!
