I am truly blessed to have received emails, texts, posts about my return. I've been questioning myself for a while now as to where I wanted to go with my stamping? So many things have changed in the last 4 years. I've learned my lesson: no matter how hard things are regardless of the situation, we should not give up on our dreams, on the things we love, no matter what the circumstances might be. I guess it's easier to say this now as I'm not on " survival mode". I loved hearing your stories and how some of you were able to bounce right back into things. I loved seeing the friends that I have made through out the years with the best paper crafting paper company, Stampin'up! I loved attending convention and meeting people like Catherine. She said to me, "you should get back into it, I've sold so many products because of your ideas and creations, you have a unique style of stamping." To me this meant a lot and Catherine, those few words at Convention really made me think things through. We create and post on our personal blogs, facebook business page, instagram…. And sometimes, I've questioned myself, is someone reading my posts lol… Chris got home after yesterday's creation and he said to me: "your creations are even better in person than the pic you sent me, you're pretty talented" See, he doesn't know this side of me yet…:) He doesn't know what I mean when I talk about passion of the demonstrator friends that I have made over the years, the clients, the downline, the incentive trips and how spoil and appreciated we are and best of all, the staff at Stampin'up! I am going to push hard at finding myself in the creative world. There are a few hiccups but I'm going to get through them.. I guess I'm doing well cause I stamped again!!!
There is something about this set that makes me want to squeal!!! I just think there are so many possibilities. And the best part is: it doesn't need to be a Halloween Project! I love monochromatic themes. Layering a card creates dimension, texture. I also think that decorating my envelop with the matching designer paper makes the recipient feel special. Nothing like a hand stamped card. Most of the items are from the Holiday Catalogue. Even the Halloween Haunting designer paper series from page 47. It's Halloween paper but since it's double sided, the genius who created it made it one side Halloweenish and the other not so much. So we can use the designer paper all year long.
Instead of inking If the broom fits stamp set, I embossed it with the black embossing powder. I love how it creates that dept in the card.
The little star was made with the boo to you framelits dies. It's so cute. Check item list below.
I also thought it would be a great idea that you see an updated picture of the girls since it has been 4 years… This picture was taken on the first day of school. Megan is in grade 10, Lauren grade 9 and Jordan grade 5. I have 2 girls in High school already!!! I love them dearly and can't wait for them to come home tonight. My week is starting today:) The joys of shared custody…
Enjoy your weekend. I already have something posted for tomorrow. If you would like to see cute packages, you might want to stop by on my blog… You can also follow me on instagram @simply_kim3k.
