Getting Impatient...

I've been feeling kind of bummed this week because I havn't been able to purchase my Stampin Up! demonstrator kit yet (stupid $320 bridesmaids dress and my rent killed my budget!) I realized that while I have TONS of craft supplies and papers and tons of Stampin Up! stamp sets none of it is featured in the current catalog and I have absolutely no SU! cardstock or designer paper. So all of the overflowing ideas I have for getting started on my Stampin Up! business...I can't begin yet. So I've avoided bunkering down at my stamp desk all week which is why I havn't posted anything new this week. However I was looking through the cards that I've made over the last few months and while they aren't made with 100% SU! stuff, some of them aren't half bad for a I decided to post some of them in a slideshow just for the hell of it. And hopefully I should be able to buy my kit next week...grrr but then I have to wait for it to come :(

I'm a blogger!

Well here goes my first blog post! I've recently gotten super hooked on all things stamping and card making. I solely blame it on my friend Elly because I saw her collection of hand made cards when I visited her in Michigan a few months ago. One thing lead to another and now I am about to become a demonstrator for Stampin Up! It's a good way for me to support my habit which has become quite costly...and maybe if all goes well I'll even make a lil profit. I'm hoping to start hosting Stampin Up! parties as soon as I get my starter kit, so if you're interested in supporting me in my new venture and making some pretty cards, drop me a line! Stamping has become a great way to keep me busy and entertain me when I would otherwise be really bored. I hope that by becoming a demonstrator I can get other people hooked on stamping and bring them the joy that it has brought me. The first picture I am posting is of the baby announcements I am making for my friend Cari who is expecting a baby in September.
The inside has a pocket so she can include a photo of the baby. You can't really tell from the picture, but the onsies are actually raised from the background of the card with a pop dot. I think they came out pretty stinkin cute. She doesn't know if the baby is a boy or girl yet, so I made a sample in both blue and pink and I'll just have to wait until the baby is born to finish the announcements. So there you have it, my first blog! Hopefully there is much more to come!
