July has been a month of working hard to get back in the groove! I’m slowly finding more time to do the things I love….and that includes trying to find little snippets of time to stamp! With the introduction of the new catalog this summer, I was even more motivated to get busy stamping with new colors, new stamps, and new accessories! I’ve had alot of fun creating, and even more fun having some classes with some of my most favorite friends!!!
I’d like to let you know that Stampin’ Up! will be offering an exclusive stamp bundle during the month of August. This exclusive stamp bundle features 22 images and 9 framelits! Whoa! You won’t even believe all the possibilities — including NINE sentiments for all sorts of occasions! As a demonstrator perk, I was able to pre-order this bundle and get busy creating! I’m having a blast working on samples for my class on August 15th. This is a “WHILE SUPPLIES LAST” deal from Stampin’ Up!, so if you want this bundle, you should let me know right away. I’ll order it for you on August 2nd when it first becomes available. Here’s one of my first samples, inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest, with some subtle changes to incorporate some new accessories that I was itchin’ to use!
So much has happened since I last posted. I had several things in life vying for my undivided attention this spring, but I think things are settling down and I’m getting back in the groove. Maybe. I’m trying to I’m trying to get back to my creativity and juggle all of my hats. As many of you know, I focused on my daughter’s wedding in Alabama this spring, and it was a gorgeous weekend of celebrating! The same daughter and son-in-law graduated from Samford University in May, so we have done quite a bit of traveling. I traveled to Tennessee in April for one of her wedding showers, Alabama graduation in May, Alabama Wedding in June, Colorado girlfriends trip in July……and that doesn’t include 4 other weddings we have attended! God has blessed us with LOTS of traveling mercies, and strength to make it through all the crazy-ness! We’ve shared so many special memories and have taken thousands of photos to capture the moments! I’ll try to share a few from time to time — for those who haven’t seen them on Facebook! It seems like summer is starting to wind down, yet we have just barely started getting into the 100 degree weather here in Texas……so not sure I can really say that summer is winding down. I’m not ready for school, so I’ll try to enjoy the next 3 weeks with less structure and play as much as I can with my little one. I’m going to attempt to get back to my Blog Posting, so wish me luck!
