Episode #497~ Stampin' Up! 4th of July Scrapbook/ Combo Layout

Hello Crafty Friends,

  Can you believe it's 4th of July weekend already? Yippee!!! I love the 4th and it's also our daughter's birthday weekend too ~ Lots of celebrating will be going on in the Meyer household!

  With that comes plenty of photo opportunities and loads of pictures that will go into our annual family scrapbook. Since I am a traditional scrapbooker at heart, I usually create 12 x 12 double page spreads in order to get as many photos on my layout as possible without looking to crowded. Project Life though has become a staple in my everyday scrapbooking as I enjoy combining the two styles into one layout!

  Making my own designed paper and pocket cards is really fun and a great way to personalize my layout and make them my own. It's also a great way to use up scrap pieces of cardstock and any extra die cuts I may have laying around from card projects like these that I used here.

  My personal challenge for this summer is to get caught up on my albums, I am only up to March of 2015 and it really drives me crazy. I've got a lot to get done but I am determined to make it happen! Why don't you join me? If you are behind and need an extra push - I am challenging YOU to set your mind to it and lets do this together!

Happy Scrapping,

Episode #497~ Clay Charm Share and Surprise Box

Hi Everyone,

  I hope your week is off to s great start ~ This is my week to clean the house as well as grocery shop and do all the ironing. I am slowly getting back into my routine and scrubby has offered to go to the grocery store for me since I can't lift anything heavier then 10 pounds for the next four weeks.

  Check out these adorable clay charms that I order a couple of weeks ago! They are super, duper cute and I can't wait to attach them to my planner that I am using for my Stampin' Up! business. My planner is really more of a place to plan upcoming videos and write measurements down, that kind of stuff. I don't know how much decorating I am going to do it, I will probably keep it pretty simple. I did pick up some really cute washi tape to use and several stamps sets that will work really well with it.

  I want to say a HUGE thank you to my very generous friend Maureen M. from Texas who was kind enough to send this surprise package of scrappy goodness and well as lots of sparkly icicles!!! They were know where to be found last year and I looked high and low for them everywhere. I think they are so pretty on our christmas tree.

Have a great rest of your week, I've got some really cute projects coming up!

Big Hugs,

Episode #495 ~ Stampin' Up! Gift Card Box Set

Happy Friday Crafty Friends,

  I made this really cute card set and gift box holder today and it would make a wonderful Teacher's Gift or for anyone who enjoys writing little notes.

  For this fun project, I used the 2015-2016 In-Color Designer Series Paper and our Whisper white card stock for the envelopes. The stamp set Rose Wonder is just stunning and has lots of fabulous sentiments that can be used for many different occasions. I am thinking about doing a class with this awesome bundle...

  A must-have for me is the Envelope Punch Board! I use mine all the time and makes a big variety of envelops in many sizes.

  The storage case that I decorated is the Half Wide Size box, perfect for these types of projects. If you have any questions - just let me know.

Episode # 495 ~ Stampin' Up! Love you Lots Girlfriend Card!

Happy Friday Everyone,
  I made it down to my down to my craft room today to make a special thank you card for my sweet friend Maribeth that brought dinner over to my family and I yesterday. It was a massive lasagna dinner complete with meatballs, sausage and two kinds of garlic cheese bread - yum!
  I knew right away I wanted to use the two ladybugs from the adorable Hostess Set called "Love You Lots". I also grabbed for one of my favorite sets "Kinda Eclectic" as I usually do!
  My wish is that she knows how much I truely appreciate her help and know how much I cherish our friendship. Makes me think I might make some Thinking of You cards for some other friends in my life that might just need a little "Hello" from me.

You can shop for all your stamping needs at my Stampin' Up! online store 24/7 from the comfort of home.

Happy Stamping,

Episode 47 I am Bustin' a Move on "LIVE" w/Regis & Kelly!

Wowza! Has it been six years already since my dancing debut on "LIVE" with Regis and Kelly??? My how time flies. Here we are six years later, living back in Chicago and I am recovering from Appendix Surgery. How crazy is that? 
This little gem popped up on my Facebook Memories and I thought it was fun and wanted to repost it so you could enjoy a giggle! I miss New Jersey and all my really good, good friends - I believe everyone comes into our lives for a certain reason at a certain time. Those gals were like family to me and I will forever be grateful.

Happy Friday friends and enjoy a little giggle ~

Episode #494 ~ Stampin' Up! Kinda Eclectic 4th of July Card!

Happy June 1st Everyone,

  Well, you know what that means - the *NEW* Stampin' Up! Catalog is here, yippee! I have mailed all those that qualified for a Free catalog from me for placing a $50 or more with me in the last six months. If you haven't recieved yours, please let me know.

  As many of you know with my daughter's posting on FB, I had emergency Appendix surgery this past Sunday evening. Not what we had planned for the Memorial Day weekend - blah!

  Hopefully the upcoming 4th of July will prove to be MUCH more fun and hopefully it will be spent out on our pontoon boat. Until then, I am recovering slowly but should be back to normal in about two weeks.

  I was so happy that this beautiful stamp set, Kinda Eclectic carried over to our new catalog! It's an amazing set and I have seen so many different uses with it from Easter to Christmas and everything in-between.

  Have a great rest of your week -
