I'm back....and the LIQUIDATION CONTINUES!

I had a FABULOUS time in Las Vegas! It was my first time EVER to visit there! It was also my first time in a private plane, my first limo ride, and my first time to attend a live musical production! I won't bore you with a lot of details, but I do want to say that if you have half a chance to see one of the Cirque de Soleil shows, DO NOT pass up the opportunity! We saw The Beatles Love , Viva Elvis and "O" . Honestly, I couldn't pick a favorite! They were all absolutely awesome!

I am going to share just one picture. I took it with my cell phone camera inside Caesar's Palace. The architecture was amazing everywhere we went!!! But enough of that!

Stamper's Dream is having a SALE!

I'm Leaving on a jet plane....

don't know when I'll be back again...♪♪♫♪♫♪

Actually, I think I will be back Monday afternoon!

I was invited to go with friends on their private plane to Las Vegas for a long weekend, and after much thought I couldn't think of a real reason NOT to go! I've never been there...or much of anywhere, for that matter. So I'm getting on that airplane early tomorrow morning headed for Nevada. New adventures...the new me! Haha! I'll let you know how it went when I get back!

In the meantime, all your orders have been packaged and shipped. All orders from now through Monday will ship when I return on Tuesday. In the meantime, check out the sale at Stamper's Dream . For 30% OFF your total purchase, enter SDClosing30 as the coupon code on the checkout page.

Wish me luck...I'm not the gamblin' kind. :)

Until I return...

It is with a heavy heart that I announce I've decided to close Stamper's Dream ! After many tears and much prayer, I just know it's the right thing for me to do. My grandchildren are growing up so quickly! I just feel the need to reclaim my life and spend more time with family and friends. As much as I love my store, my fabulous design team, and my faithful customers, I know it's time for other things to take priority in my life. No one can do it all. Well, not forever, anyway.

Stamper's Dream is having a SALE!

So...my loss is your gain! Everything in the store is 20% off with the coupon code Farewell2U. Just enter it on the checkout page in the coupon section and it will take 20% off the lowest marked price of the items in your shopping cart! There is a $20 minimum to activate the coupon. Sorry, but there will be no free shipping during the liquidation. All sales are final. Also, please be aware that there may be a delay in shipping due the volume.

And did you know we're having our very last Stamper's Dream blog hop??? I invited some of my most special friends to hop with us as well! Here's the lineup:

Michelle Rodgers
Becca Feeken
Tosha Leyendekker
Denise Marzec

My undying thanks to members of The Dream Team both past and present! I have communicated with them privately...and I hope they know how much they mean to me. Always have. Always will!

Thanks so much for stopping by...

Geaux Tigers!

So sorry that I don't have anything creative for you today. I left town Friday afternoon headed for Tiger Stadium aka Death Valley! On Saturday the Tigers beat the Florida Gators 41-11, and I was among 93,000 other fans sitting in the stadium watching it happen. It was my first LSU game, and it was awesome, I tell ya!

We had a fabulous time at the game. But the tailgaiting, both before and after the game, made for the perfect day! Great friends, great food, great entertainment! Thanks to our hosts, Scott and Joanna! Here is Joanna with her son Clinton.
I hope your weekend was a wonderful as mine! I will be back as soon as I can with something crafty. Until then...

Winter Wishes Altered Notebook

Hi everyone! This is a notebook that I make each and every year. These make such wonderful gifts for a teacher or co-worker. You can find the tutorial HERE from several years ago. A different version of the notebook can be found HERE and another HERE .

If you follow the instructions in the tutorial you shouldn't have any trouble, so I'm going to skip the directions for making it. The stamp set for the ornament is JustRite Stampers Deck The Halls cling mounted set. I stamped it with Fired Brick Distress Ink , then cut it out. The teal layer, and red ornament layer behind the stamped image were cut using Spellbinders 2011 Ornament Nestabilities . The tag was stamped with JustRite's Christmas Mini Sentiments .

This picture is so you can see the focal image in a little greater detail. All designer paper used on the notebook is from the Prima Marketing North Country 6 x 6 paper pad . The ribbon is May Arts , and the flower in the center is from the North Country Avon Rose flower collection.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by today. I hope you have a wonderful week! Until the next time...

Winter Birdhouse

Hi everyone! I'm so excited about my card today, because it was a pure joy to make.
The stamp I used is Stampavie's Winter Birdhouse by Tina Wenke! Isn't that the sweetest image? And I just LOVED coloring it with my Tombow Markers! I used White Opal Liquid Pearls for the snow, and sprinkled Ultrafine Transparent Glitter on it while it was still wet.

The image was cut with Spellbinders Labels Eighteen . The designer paper is from the Prima Marketing North Country 6 x 6 Paper Pad . The bow was made with May Arts 1" Teal Sheer ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you have a fantastic week!

Share The Warmth

Hello from the soggy south! Not complaining...we desperately needed the rain, and it makes for a perfect day to stay inside to stamp! As if we need an excuse...right?

I absolutely adore this gorgeous stamp from Stampendous . It's called Forest Cottage Scene , and it certainly makes a warm and cozy holiday card!

I stamped the image on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine Ink then colored with Tombow Markers using a damp paint brush to blend.

To add sparkle I used my Quickie Glue Pen as an adhesive, then sprinkled on Crystal Ultrafine Glitter .

The sentiment is from Stampavie's Holiday Wishes clear stamp set. So many nice sentiments in that one!

As promised, here are the Tombow Markers I used to color the image. The cardstock is two different shades from the Prismatics Baby Blue Trio.

Thanks for stopping by today. Until the next time...

Deck the Halls!

What a great weekend! I even managed to sneak in a little creative time! It seems that doesn't happen often enough these days.

This card was a lot of fun to make! Since the new Spellbinders 2011 Heirloom Ornaments dies arrived earlier this week, I was anxious to use the matching JustRite Deck the Halls cling stamp set! The ornament on the left was cut and embossed using Spellbinders 2010 Heirloom Ornaments .

That beautiful designer paper is from the Bo Bunny Blitzen 6 x 6 paper pad. Such a beautiful colors...every single page!

The images were stamped on white cardstock, then colored with the Tombow Markers as shown. Since I didn't stamp on watercolor paper I used the N00 Blender Pen to add the color to the paper.

Short and sweet, I know. But this card is pretty straightforward so I'm sparing you all the extra babble.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today!

Autumn Fun!

I hope you're all having a great holiday weekend! Mine has been awesome so far...and I have one more day off tomorrow! Gotta LOVE those days off...KWIM?

My card today features Stampavie's new Autumn Fun clear stamp by Laurence Designs. Since I think it's pretty self explanatory I'm just going to hit the high spots! But as always, if you have questions please feel free to email me.

The designer paper is from the new Prima Marketing Londonerry 6 x 6 paper pad . The bow was made with May Arts Brown Burlap String . The green flower is from the Prima Reflections Sugar Blooms collection.

The image was watercolored using the Tombow Markers pictured above. Yes, I got a little carried away with all those colors! LOL!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a fabulous Labor Day holiday!
