About Me  

My hometown is Calgary, AB but I was born and raised in Vancouver, BC. We moved to Calgary in 1997. I am a Stay at Home Mom to a 7 1/2 year old daughter and a 4 year old son. I have been a Stampin' Up! demonstrator for 3 1/2 years now. My husband Bill and I have been married for 9 years. Like most people we lead a very busy life!

Stampin' Up! is a wonderful company to be a part of. Cardmaking, Scrapbooking and Papercrafts is a hobby that I have become very passionate about. Each morning when I sit at my computer and visit my favorite websites and blogs I can't help but become very excited and passionate about what people are creating all over the World, it's a great way to start my day and think about the projects I will be creating today!

What's New?

Happy New Year's Day!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Year's with family and friends. My family and I had a great Christmas with family and friends and too much food! For me 2008 is going to be about becoming a healthier individual mentally and physically and of course I can't forget about all the scrapbooking I need to get done! I hope that you all had a little bit of time to papercraft and scrapbook over the holidays - I personally was busy creating right up until Christmas Day - I managed to get so much stuff done and I really accomplished alot from my "to do list". The kid's are on Winter Break so it's been a little crazy here, but, I'm really enjoying the time off.

On to Stampin' Up! stuff - the Spring/ Summer Catalogue is now available, you can start ordering from it January 2nd - it is a beautiful catalogue - if you would like to pick up a copy just send me an email or give me a call! Catalogues are $7 each.

I still have some of the Fall/Winter Catalogues left, I am selling these for $4 each. If you didn't purchase one yet now is the time, for $4 you can't lose, they are so full of ideas and inspiration.

Some exciting news Stampin' Up! prices have gone down an additional 7% starting with the Spring/Summer Collection 2008 catalogue, Stampin' Up! did not have time to adjust their prices in the catalogue before printing so look to the left in the Stampin' Up!

Scrapbook Wonderland

by Erin Kilmer

Shakers rattle, are you listenin'?
In the aisle, beads are glistenin'!
A beautiful sight, we're happy tonight!
Walking in a scrapbook wonderland!

Gone away is my money
Here to stay's my croppin' buddy!
We're singing a song as we shop along
Walking in a scrapbook wonderland!

In the workroom we can build a layout
Using diecuts, punches, fibers too!
We'll have lots of fun making our layout
And they have just the right shade of Bazzill blue!

Later on, we'll conspire
As we crop by the fire
To bring all our pics and our Hermafix
Walking in a scrapbook wonderland

In the workroom we can build a layout
With our eyelets, stickers, tags and brads.
We'll have lots of fun making a layout!
All those patterned papers make me glad!

When we crop, ain't it thrillin',
Though the shop's makin' a killin'?
We'll frolic and play the scrapbooking way
Walking in a scrapbook wonderland.

Walking in a scrapbook wonderland.

Walking in a scrapbook wonderland!!!!!!
