A Sample(r) of Spring

I put out the Spring Decor last week and though the Utah weather is fickle, I'm feeling cheerful! This is the lastest sampler I've created using squares from a swap my stampin' family held:


And this is one from one of my stamp clubs. I'm always so proud of them when they get crafty!

Finally (though I know it's past St. Patrick's Day) I had to share this one by my friend Sue Stratton because it's so adorable:

If you need a little spring-in-your-step (or in your home) and you don't want to make your own, I have an extra one from last year that I have for sale for $15 plus shipping! E-mail me if you want it!

Preserve Precious Memories: Simply, Beautifully

Create a mini album in a snap: We did the work and saved the fun for you! We measured, cut, and gathered the paper and accents so you don't have to, but the pages aren't predesigned—you put it together however you want. Keep it for yourself or give it to someone else to enjoy: It's perfect for a mother, friend, grad or to collect memories of a special event! It's a simple, quick way to capture life's precious moments.
It's more fun to craft with a friend and you can personalize this project with your bestie in Southern Utah on April 12th or in Spanish Fork on April 16th. Just check out my Events page and register early!  



Sale-A-Bration is all about great deals and rewards. You can get wonderful rewards by shopping, hosting, and joining Stampin’ Up! before March 31st!

Life Happened (& Card Class)

Sometimes life comes at you all at once! That happened to me last week: A death, a birth, a visit from my daughter, a trip to southern Utah, a card class, a shoebox swap, a stamp day, a funeral, an emergency family council and a red-eye flight to send my girl back to D.C. on the same night as Daylight Savings, followed by early morning church!

I should have snapped a pic at the funeral, but didn't think of that :(
All in all, it was a great adventure and one I won't soon forget!

I've learned to stop saying, "When life slows down, I will _______" because life isn't about to slow down anytime soon! Instead, I make time for the things that are important to me, including creativity. If you need a creative escape this weekend, come on over to my Stamp-a-Stack card class!
