If you do not have a demonstrator or are looking for a change, I would love to have the honor. I am an active YouTuber and blogger, here are some other Stampin' Up! web activities I have for you to check...

Bird Window Frame Thanks Card | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

I cut two 3D frames and thought they would make a perfect shaker card. This is the first finished project. Using a Terracotta Tile Scripty embossed piece of cardstock leftover from a different project, I attached that to the back of the frame. The foam adhesive strips made the perfect container for iridescent sequins. After trying different colors and dsp for the mat around the frame I settled...

This is a simple stamping card that I made on the Whispe White thick card base. I like to make my simple cards on a regular Whisper White card front, but I felt like challenging myself!. This stamp set makes every card look beautiful, it is so easy to work with. I may dress it up with some sequins or rhinestones when it comes time to send it. 

I am entering the following challenge:...

With our rental work schedule stretching on longer than we'd planned, I did not get my final 4th of July cards posted when I would have liked. But better late than never right? Here's a quick video showing the final creations that I mailed out well before the 4th.

I enjoyed two days of crafting at my mom's. This is one of my later projects, I had this in mind as a #simplestamping project. Each month Stampin' Up! publishes a simple stamping card style for demonstrators to make. I like to stretch myself to make a few of them. For me, the more elaborate cards are easier. They tend to be busy with many layers of ink and cardstock so many mistakes can be...

I finally had the opportunity to go visit my mom. I was SOOOO ready to craft with her after almost a month of constant work on our rental. Though I can appreciate flexing very rusty home repair and maintenance skills periodically, I really missed crafting! This is the first project I worked on. I started out creating two busy backgrounds and this one was the better of the two.
