new cards swaps

So I spent most of yesterday afternoon (thank goodness it was very very humid here at my house.) at my local scrapbook store PG SCRAPBOOK ZONE working on two more card swaps. One was a sympathy card the other a halloween type card. I have one more "fall" type card to make. These are due in by sometime in September. I have also signed up to do a secret sisters swap (halloween themed) due later.

new friends

So Im like reading my email today and I noticed that I got a message on a post that I replied to. There is this new Demo who signed up about the same time as I did. Shes having some problems with her upline. I hope that I gave her enough advice on what to do. I even volunteered to send swaps to her!!

feeling the excitement!

Just came home from my meeting with my Upline... saw how creative my fellow demo's can be. Had a really good chat and now Im ready to step ahead and get ready to do... Do what you may ask? Perhaps sign up for a regional type training, (would love to go to Convention) maybe next year!

new card sample

Ok so I spent most of yesterday afternoon, and most of the morning finishing off my card!! ( ok so its not completly finished waiting for embellisments!)But I have finished all the stamping part and card folding.... have some paper cutting left and sticking it all down onto the card base. It does already look very impressive... I hope the swappers like it! : )

new technique

Well today I was busy trying to finish off my 5/6 card swap. This technique is called "spotlighting" OMG this is very trying. I do much better with a sample to copy in my hand!! Oh well... paper is cheap and it was a NVR so I could use any supplies I wanted to use! I will post the finish product when I receive my next order as I need to add embellishments to it and I do not have any that are not SU (however I guess I could use any type)

I have been busy looking at samples published from many SU Demo's across Canada, and the US. I have to say you are all very crafty people. I have recently signed up for a few swaps so I hope to have a good selection of "demos" to offer at classes this fall.

I have already made two projects that I am going to do as classes, and hope that the participants enjoy them as much as I do!

I am Leanna. I started scrapbooking about 16 years ago (wow thats when I got married; not married anymore). That is so scary!! Anyways, I started stamping about 5 years ago (not as scary!) I have to say that both hobbies are addictive, time consuming and can get expensive!! This is the main reason why I recently signed up with Stampin’ Up! You can too! When you sign up you get to choose your kit, (worth much more than what you pay for it!) and you get to make purchases at a discout!!

Moving on more about me….

I live in Northern BC Canada, with my wonderful boyfriend (who supports my habit) oops he supports my Stampin’ Up! business, my four-legged companions: PJ (who is at least 18 yrs old) my cat, and Digger (12 yrs old) golden red toy poodle. I guess I would consider them my “children”.
My “day” job (although its not really as I work casual) is as a Care Aide for Northern Health. Ok you have no idea on what a Care Aide does right? So I take care of elderly people in care homes. I assist/provide care for the resident and make sure that they are being taken cared of. No I am not a Nurse!!

Hello world!
Well, here I am. I have to say that I have never enjoyed journaling (maybe I would lose more weight if I did) however I believe that this is a new “medium” for people to get noticed. So here goes….
I signed up with Stampin’ Up! one month ago today! Wow! I have been busy trying out the supplies that came with my kit. I had signed up with a $99 deal to Stampin’ Up! and thought this was a good way for me to support my crafting habit. I have been able to secure a place in the fall to start my classes so look out community here I come!!
I would like to Inspire people to Create on their own, and to Share their designs. On that note, I would love to have you on my team, to join go to and click on the Join button. You can email me as well to order your new 2009-2010 Stampin’ Up! catalog. All I can say is wow! My new wish list is huge.
Did you know that papercrafting, scrapbooking and cardmaking especially (lucky for us) is in a market that is recession proof? With all the companies going broke, and people being laid off ( I was one of you 2 years ago) that home base businesses are taking off? If you find that you need that little bit of extra income go ahead and click on the join button.

I have been working with Andrea who is the contact person for the Vanway Community Association. They have volunteers set up different classes during the week. We have found a place (yahoo) and times/date to be held. The Comm. Ass. charges a small fee, and then I have a class fee that is also need to pay for the costs of supplies.
I have set up that classes will run from September 15th and run until December 10 2009. The time for these classes is 6:30 pm to 8: 30pm. All particapants are then encouraged to create the class “project”. After we are finished with the class, the students are able to order the items used in the day’s project.
There will be some classes that include a pre made kit. Some kits may have an additional charge and will need to be preordered. Class schedule will be ready soon. Come and check it out!
