Stampin Fun At the Lowell Folk Festival

I've heard from many of you that you couldn't find me over the weekend. The folk festival was HUGE, wasn't it? It basically takes over the whole city of Lowell. I'm off to convention tomorrow and this will be my last check-in until next week.

Here is a photo of my husband and I in front of my booth. Isn't he cute? He's even sporting his Stampin' Up! shirt from Bermuda!

I thought it would be fun to share a photo of my display. The projects behind me were all chipboard frames. Very fun to make and even MORE fun to display!

Talk to you when I return!

Dual Purpose Chipboard Frames

Well, you've probably wondered where I've been!

I've been preparing for a major craft fair, not to far from where I live, called the Lowell folk festival. I have been making my DUAL PURPOSE CHIPBOARD FRAMES and I have over 800 made today! If you live in the area, I hope you'll come by to visit.
  1. Use it once by placing a photo in it and hanging it up!

  2. When the photo becomes outdated, simply snip the ribbon off, and mount to a 12 x 12, to slide it in your scrapbook!

I'll be at the dutton street stage area. Anyway, I thought I'd share a sneak peek of the items I'll be selling!

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

How to color your decor elements - A tutorial.

Before I left, I posted an album to my blog using the individual home decor letters on the front of SU!'s linen albums.
Stampin' Up! asked me for more info on how I did it, if the letters lifted and more. So, I decided to do a tutorial on How to use the decor elements, and more exciting how to COLOR them AND make them SPARKLE!!!

Home from Vacation

It's SO hard coming home from vacation. We had a VERY fun time up at Old Orchard Beach, Maine this weekend. Isn't she cute with that ponytail? That was the first ponytail she didnt rip out! She's growing up so fast! I cant wait to scrapbook some of these great photos!

Here's a Happy Belated 4th wish for you and your family!
