Use up the old, to prepare for the new!

I was fortunate enough to purchase a large paper rack and decided to reorganize my paper. Wow, I really didn't think I had as much paper as I do. So, I decided to try to use some beautiful retired patterns up, before I left for Convention.
I love background stamps and I found this piece of retired Vineyard Berry cardstock already stamped with an image from retired stamp set, Intrinsic Backgrounds. I loved the patterned paper, since it was Sweet Leaf on one side and Twilight on the other. I apologize, I can not remember what paper package it came from....maybe you remember and can tell me?

I stamped with an image from, Perfect Fit Frames 2, on the coordinating Art Philosophy cut shape. The frame ink is Sweet Leaf and the sentiment, from Holiday Tags, is in Twilight. I embellished with retired Twilight buttons and Natural Hemp.

Trip Diary: Day Five - Leadership Day was wonderful. We received some new products to keep and were able to play with additional new products. I spend the day with my upline Pam, along with Denise and Jennifer. It was a great day, then met up with my family and we had dinner out at my daughter's choice...McDonalds!

Trip Diary: Day Six - I am going to make this short today! Today was started with our fantastic General Session at Convention where the laughter and new product launch abounds. Kristine & MOnica were contestants, with 2 other couples, on an Amazing Race knock off. It was hilarious! WE saw our new consultant bags and wonderful new products throughout the race that was most certainly won by the Scrap Moms...Kristine & Monica. We had a break for lunch, then back for a business session with Kristine. She shared market strategies and other great factual information about our new products and Idea Book changes.
I spent the day with my Tweeker CTMH Sisters, Jennifer and Barb. I met them at convention in Disneyland 3 years ago, then we roomed together with Jackie in Dallas 2 years ago. We are missing Jackie at convention this year.....but the 3 of us together today felt like we picked right up where we had last left off. Love my Tweeker Sisters!

  1. Sounds like you are having a fun time. Great way to use up those scraps. I think I still have a few tiny scraps of Emporium left, though I tried to use it up a few months ago. I'm currently in clean up mode, cleaning out some super old kits to send as a gift to a friend. :)


I love reading your comments, Thank You!
