New Blog for Stampin' Up

I am a new demonstrator for Stampin' Up.  Mostly I guess I am a hobby demo.  I am trying to see if I can actually make a go of it as a business.  I am offering Stamping Kits, a Frequent Purchase Reward Program and I am trying to get a virtual Stamp Club going.  My new blog address is  I plan on keeping this one for my non Stampin' Up crafting.  I have a few projects I need to get posted here.  With everything going on, it is hard to find the time.  Please check out my new site.  I am open to suggestions as to how to make it better.

All my pictures are missing

When I checked my blog last week, I found out all my pictures had disappeared.  I am working on tracking down which memory card has them.  I am so bad about moving them off the cards and onto my computer.  Hopefully I will have them reposted in a few days.

Finished the Outhouse Mini

I found the cutest mini album to make for my Dad for his birthday.  I wish I had the talent to make these patterns myself.  Since I don't have that kind of talent,  I am sure glad someone else does.  The pattern for this can be found at:

I had fun putting this together.  The "wooden boards" were a bit time consuming but they turned out wonderful.  The directions called for putting an additional color of distress in over the darker ink, but I didn't have the lighter color.  I still like the way it turned out.

 Front of the Outhouse.

 Back and sides of the Outhouse.

 The mini inside.
 I love the way she did the pattern for the inside.  It adds so much.

I only showed the full family pictures and the pages with my boys on them.  Since all the pages are basically the same, I didn't want to display my nephews without permission from my siblings.  All of the boys are either gamers or phone addicts or both so this paper is perfect.  One side has controllers from most of the game systems all the way back to Atari and the other has different cell phones on it.

Perfect for my Dad

Well, I did the huge mini for my Mom, but felt like I was leaving my Dad out.  While surfing the net, I found the perfect mini for my Dad.  I think he will get a kick out of it.  I found an outhouse mini tutorial.  You can check it out here  I can't wait to start on this one.  Hopefully when I get home this evening.
