I received this from Maureen, who found it at the “Scrap Goddess” Fabulously Artsy site.  It is a quote from Alan Alda and worthy of passing along.

Be brave enough to live creatively.  The creative is the place where no one else has ever been.  You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition.  You can’t get there by bus, only by hard work, risking, and by not quite knowing what you’re doing.  What you’ll discover will be wonderful:  YOURSELF.



Got Scraps?

This stamping stuff is a challenge.  Smears, stamped image crooked, darker on one side and not much of an image in the center.  What to do with the stamp set after I have it home.  I tend to have a bit of “buyer’s remorse” after the set arrives.  So I’ve challenged myself to get with the program and stop whining!

I have a lot of old and discontinued Stampin’ Up! paper that I can’t use in any workshop or in my Clubs.  I absolutely HATE to waste paper.  What do the other Demo’s do with all their old papers?  I’ve got a stamp set with sentiments for nearly every occasion one could think of and I’ve only  used a couple of them.  Time to get that set out and get to work.

Word Play Stamp Set

Word Play Stamp Set

This is the Word Play stamp set and it comes in a set of two.  You can order this stamp set from my Stampin’ Up! Website.  The images can be used in scrapbook layouts, cards, gift items, and what ever else you can dream up.

I’ve created 3″x3″ cards with Whisper White and using my old out dated papers I’ve turned them into envelopes for these cards.  Some of the envelopes gave me fits but they all turned out pretty good.

Paper for envelope is 5-1/4″ x 5-1/4″.  Whisper White papers are 3″ x 6″ for the card base and 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″ for the sentiment piece.  The patterned paper that matches the envelope is 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″.
