Computer Crash

Just a note to let you know that my hard drive crashed and not sure if we can save anything or not! Of course, it was my laptop that had all my pictures and MDS projects on it. I did have most of my pictures backed up on my external hard drive and my MDS downloads are all on another computer so thinking and hoping we can transfer them but not sure--I wont lose my downloads but may have to download each one again individually. Oh, the fun of computers!!! As soon as Dennis brings the computer back I will be up and running again.
In the meantime I have been scrapbooking which is good!!! I am almost finished with a Family Wedding Album and now will work on my Convention/Leadership Album which has not been added onto since the Orlando Convention!!! Then I am going to take all of my pictures out of albums and boxes and begin sorting. I had my albums all caught up to date and then through the years we have taken this picture out and that picture out for a school project and now have a mess again!!! Hopefully, by Spring my albums will be nice and neat again!!!! Have a great Sunday!!!

More Sympathy Cards

These are 2 more sympathy cards that we did in our Stamp A Stack. This card was cased from Stamping Pretty with Mary Fish.

This is another card we made with Wild Wasabi and Early Expresso, and Early Expresso Ribbon. It is fun to sometimes pull out the older stamp sets and make cards with them.

Sympathy Card Class

This is two of the four sympathy cards we made today at the Stamp A Stack Sympathy Card Class. We had such a great time as was so relaxing and everyone was so creative. The top card I used the stamp set "Field Flowers" with Rose Red and the newspaper DSP.

You just have to love Soft Suede and Baja Breeze. On this card we also used the Labels Framelits and Baja Breeze seam binding. On one of the cards I changed it by using all 3 of the smallest Label Framelits instead of the punch! We had a great day! Tomorrow I will show you the other 2 that we made!!

Valentine Card

This is a fun valentine card but Oh the ideas you could create from this simple basic card Dawn has a video on her blog on how to make this card. You could also add ribbon or a belly band around the middle--make it into a Wedding, Baby Card. The ideas are endless!
This is one of my favorite days as we will be having a Downline Meeting this afternoon and so many items to share with such a great group! If you would like to be apart of this group just contact myself or one of my downline and you can join us for lots of laughs and fun!!!! It only costs $125 to join plus you get either a package of DSP each month or a Free Digital Download. So much fun!! Just email me or give me a quick phone call! Have a great day as I know I will!!!

Club Cards

This is one of the cards we did at club this month! The technique was to match the scallops on the top and bottom. We used the new stamp set from the Occasions mini catalog and added 3 large pearls.

This scrapbook page was made with the square scallop die, Real Red card stock for the base and then added some DSP and a punch and some brads! Fun and fast page.

We have had a busy last 2 days! 2 clubs and also a class at the Assisted Living which has kept me busy but fun! Had a lot of fun at both clubs this month! Enjoy the post and have a great evening!

CD Organization

This is the way I have organized my framelits, dimensionals, bakers twine, rhinestones, pearls, etc. Stampin' Up! has these CD cases that are 4 for $5.95 #119104 and I decorated with DSP and then added the label on the side. So much easier and when you want to have a class you just grab the case. I got this idea from Patty Bennett-- and she has a video how to do this. I also put my framelits in here with a piece of the Big Shot magnet. So fun and organized!!! Thanks a bunch, Patty! I hope you all have a great day-I know I will as I am having a Valentine Card Class today!

Valentine Cards and Sympathy Class

These are some valentine cards that were on display at Leadership in San Antonio. Don't you just love this little bug!

So many cards on display.

Another card from the new Occasions Mini stamp set--love the red glitter. You just have to work with this glitter paper-so nice and no mess with loose glitter, etc. Cuts so nice!#121970 for 2 sheets of Red for 4.95 or you can also get Silver #124005( it is a carry over from the Holiday Mini Catalog) I hope they will come out with more colors.

I will be having a Stamp A Stack Sympathy Card Class on February 11th. All of the details are on the side bar. We will be making 12 cards. Come and join us!! It has been a busy week with the Stock Show, taxes and all of the prep for club and classes. Join me tomorrow and I will show you a new organizational tip! Fun! Have a great day as it is a little nippy here!
