My Coffee Fix

This week has flown by.  I started another quilt and I am preoccupied with the task.  Last week I had a vendor event at The Rock's again.  It was so much fun.  I had a make and take Father's Day card for them.  Its another great way to get my name out there.  Todays post is a project I found on pinterest with someone using retired products.  I have updated it with my new products.  I hope you like it cause I love this Coffee Suite that came out in the new catalog.  If you want to get a few friends together and make this project let me know.  Have a great upcoming weekend.

Scrapbooking the Mediterranean Cruise

It's been an entire year this week that I had the opportunity to be a guest with Stampin' Up! on the annual achievers grand vacation.  I have been with Stampin' Up! for many many years and always strive to earn their annual vacation and my dear friend Martha asked me to be her guest.  I am blessed to be able to travel the world and when Martha asked how could I refuse? I couldn't.  I recently made two scrapbooks one for her and one for me they are exactly alike so making this scrapbook was a labor of love.  Love for what I do and Love for my dearest friend.  I have been a scrapbooker since the early 2000's and when I discovered Stampin' Up! and their amazing scrapbooking products I was able to take my scrapbooking to a new level and incorporate rubber stamping onto my pages.  These pictures are just a 4 pages of about 30 pages.  I wish I could show you the entire scrapbook.

Happy Memorial Weekend.
On these pages I used retired designer paper, retired alphabet stamps. 

This page was pretty easy.  It was done using Stampin' Up! Project Life picture dividers.  The Night of Navy card are from our upcoming annual catalog Color Theory Memories and More Card Pack item number 144210 $10.00

This page I used the Memories and More Color Theory cards and the woman is from stamp set Beautiful You (clear mount) item number 143637 $28.00 they are available now.  I used my big shot for the hot air balloon, the thinlets are available now item number 142748 $30.00.

Don't forget you can order all these items from my online store
