Good Morning and Happy Tuesday! I just have a short post today, as my hand is still healing. I’m seriously counting down the days until I can remove this bandage:) I want to start stamping again sooooo bad!!!
Stampin’ Up announced new weekly deals today. There are some awesome items here that every stamper could use, including the handheld circle punches. I just recently upgraded to these two punches, and I can attest to their great quality. Another favorite of mine is the Gold Baker’s Twine. I use it all the time, as well as the seam binding ribbon. Both are great for adding that extra something to cards without making them bulky so they require extra postage.
Remember too that many retiring items are on sale through June 2, 2015, while supplies last. Also, all the digital downloads and digital printing are 30% off until June 2, 2015, when the Stampin’ Up! digital store will close for good. You can shop for all these items at my online store. Don’t let these great opportunities pass by.

For inspiration today, I’m sharing a couple projects created by my talented sister Jill. She’s not only an amazing photographer, she’s great at pulling together her great photos into beautiful, heartfelt displays. For this first project, she used the Epic Day This and That Journal to create a keepsake for her son for his 21st birthday. On the cover, she included photos depicting each year of his life (with a few extras.) Then on the inside, she created more in-depth pages for each year. I loved paging through this album, remembering my nephew as a little boy, looking at his accomplishments, and seeing how he’s matured into such an amazing young man! This is a priceless memory.
For Jill’s next project, she created a 3-D Hello Life display for her craft room. Isn’t this cute? I love all the great sayings she found from different stamp sets. I see Really Good Greetings (Live the Life you’ve Imagined), Perfect Pennants (Life Doesn’t Have to be Perfect to be Wonderful), and Lovely Amazing You (you make my heart happy). For her title, I’m guessing that she either used the Little Letters Thinlits Dies or printed them from My Digital Studio. This just goes to show how you can customize this great kit to fit your needs. I just love the way this turned out.

I had fun sharing my sister’s great projects. Maybe I should do this more often!!!
