Andrea Walford

I am so disappointed! One of my most favorite stampers and Stampin Up demonstrator, Andrea Walford is no longer working with Stampin Up! I guess it is not allowed to be a SU employee and publicly use other companies products. Because of this she made a heartfelt decision to walk away and continue using products not limited to SU. I applaud her decision. I know in my own SB room I have dozens of different brands that I love and enjoy using. Stampin Up has a wonderful selection and is a great product, but there are so many other companies dealing with the same compliance issues that are handled in a more appropiate manner. I love SU, but love and admire Andrea more!

My Honey's 2011 Valentine Card



This is my husband's Valentine card. It started off being a very simple card using tone on tone colors, a verse, and a ribbon. Shortly after working on it I started pulling papers from two new paper lines I recently bought and before I knew it, I was adding flowers, floral papers, and pearls. My Mom would have loved it, but this was for my sweet husband. He loved it too and didn't mind it not being a masculine card.

CHAW11 - NEW Hello Luscious Collection

Oh dear....It keeps getting better and better! I just love the new Hello Luscious Collection. I have never been a great fan with Basic Grey, but with Kristina Werner joining their team and the wonderful new paper and digital lines, it is rapidly becoming one of my favorites!
