Hi all,

I have figured out the new Stampin Up format so you can now click on the catalog buttons and it will take you to my page where you can shop with me.

I have been busy doing classes and working on items for my craft fair that is this coming Saturday at Westland Baptist Church between Highland Knolls and Kingsland Blvd. off Grand Parkway also know as 99.  It starts at 10 – 4.  Would love to see you all there.  Come take advantage of some new items and retired stamp sale of some new and also gently used stamps.

I will be sharing the cards we made at the classes later and hopefully this week, but if not for sure next week.  Need to concentrate on getting things done for the craft fair.



Stampin Up website

Hi All,

Stampin Up has changed their format and until I can figure out how to get it to work with wordpress clicking on the catalog picture won’t take you to my Stampin’ Up site!  Please bear with me while I transition to their new site.

You can still shop with me b y going to Stampin’ Up site and putting my name in as the demonstrator and it will take you to my shopping page.

I will let you know as soon as I have it ready.
