Card Inspiration From Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog

Look who's back! After my computer died (again), I decided it was time to quit messing around with repairs and just get a whole new computer. So I now have a shiny new piece of equipment and I'm sloooowly getting programs loaded, downloaded, tweaked, and reinstated. It's amazing how much I depend on all the little shortcuts and links I use each day.

Anyhoo ... sorry for being MIA for so long. I'll try to make up for lost time with a boatload of fun ideas for you to enjoy. Last month, our team attended the Stampin' Up! Leadership Conference in Orlando. Naturally, we learned lots of business tips, cool stamping ideas and tips, and even got sneak peeks of upcoming Paper Pumpkin kits!

In addition, our group + a few far flung demonstrator friends got together for make & take swap sessions. Would you like to see what we made? I'll be sharing the projects with you all week long, so be sure to check in often.
