Another Pay It Forward with a Twist

Ok... so I was the first to post over on Sussann's Blog for her Pay it Forward, so now it's MY turn to offer up some goodies.

I'm a proliffic card maker/swapper and have WAY more than my share of them stored for future

For the first 5, yes FIVE, posters to my PIF, I will send 10 thank you cards to each of you... The only criteria.... you have to post your blog address in the comment here and you have to post a Pay It Forward on your blog to redeem the cards...

Can't wait to see who posts!!

P.S. I did this cool signature at My Live Signature after seeing it on Heather's Blog! Check it out and make your own cool signature (or two or three)...

Birthday Book

Here is a photo of the Birthday Book that I taught at the Scrapnook on Monday night. It is made from bound 6 x 9 envelopes and Heidi Grace Birthday Paper. I used my silhouette and quickutz squeeze tool to cut the names of the months, titles and the cute candle on the front. I'm teaching this class again at the Scrapnook on April 22nd, and will upload more detailed instructions after that class is over.

Pay It Forward

Sorry for the hiatus... after the new year, I was feeling life overload... I finally picked up paper and adhesive again a few weeks ago and am feeling quite renewed. I've also joined the design team at the Scrapnook scrapbooking store in Fargo ND! I've been having a blast playing with all the new products!

I also purchased a Silhouette and am LOVING it! I've been creating some files of my own as well as finding some designers that I just love as well. If you have a cutting machine of your own, you should check out Visual Designs by Chris and The Latest By Mary for some cool designs. I also love Sticky Stuff for supplies and tutorials. I joined this amazing yahoo group called Silhouetteusers that has the most amazing people, ideas, and help!

On another note... I absolutely LOVE this idea that Chris posted on her blog yesterday and am going to give it a try here.

Here is MY Pay it forward... Chris offered 3 of her cutter designs for the first person to post a comment on her post if they offered a pay it forward reward on their own blog. I was second, but since I thought it was an incredible idea I'm going to post the challange here any ways... I will send a Close To My Heart retired stamp set called "Rustic Flowers" (see photo below- it is a $22.95 value and is brand new) to the first person to post a comment on this post. The only criteria.... you have to post your blog address in the comment here and you have to post a Pay It Forward on your blog to redeem the stamp set. If this goes well I might try to make it a monthly installment on my blog. Can't wait to see who posts and what their PIF is... Have fun and Scrap Happy!!
