new creation!

I made one of the little board books from Stampin Up into an address book for my daughter for graduation. I used instructions from another blogger...I'll have to publish the link later, because I forgot her name...Sorry!

It was really easy using her instructions...It turned out great! I added a little pocket on the inside cover for stamps. Also, she printed out the pages from the board book on her printer. I just used colored paper and printed pages on a copier and monoadhesived (is that a word? LOL!) to the pages in the book. It was fun to do this...I did one also for my younger daughter and may do more!

Simply Scrappin cards...

I love the simply scrappin kits to use for quick cards! I made some with the In Full Bloom kit, and they were so quick, yet they look so nice! All you need is one kit, and a few word stamps and a black ink pad and you're all set!

And speaking of In Full Bloom....the stamp set is being retired! I can't believe it! The Stampin Up retired list was just released. You can get it at their website, so you can decide what sets you absolutely have to have! As you probably know, they are coming out with a new catalog that will have the fall/winter stamps in it. So, it sounds like with all these retired sets, there will be a ton of new sets to choose from in the new catalog.

So, guess I'd better get my catalog marked with all the retired sets so I know what I HAVE to have before it's too late!

Great news!

Cambria Turnbow posted on her blog about Stampin Up's customer survey panel. She provided a link, and I applied, and was accepted! All you have to do is fill out a survey online about Stampin Up products a couple times a month, and quarterly they will send you a 'goodie box' for doing it! Free stuff from SU! who could pass that up?!
