Welcome to Nichole's Stampin' Craze!!

This has been an exciting week! I got the keys to my new location and had my first class on Tuesday night! There's so much to do and so many opportunities that I'm having trouble sleeping, but it's a great feeling!

Here are some pictures of my new space:

The next class will be on Saturday, May 10th at 10am. It's our Mother's Day Stamp A Stack, but oh so much more than your typical stamp a stack. You'll make 10 cards that have been pre-designed  and are ready for you to assemble. They are 5 designs, 2 of each one, and are a mixture of sentiments including Mother's Day, birthday, congrats/graduation, and thank you. In addition to the cards, you'll be pampered with special gifts to celebrate a special day! You don't want to miss it!!

Sign up today to reserve your spot at the following link:

There are multiple options including a finished packet that comes complete with the cards and giveaways!

Project Life is available for order today!!   Contact me to place your order or visit my online store at

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter!

This is a quick post featuring a card I made for our Ladybug Ink card swap.

I used the new fringe scissors and I CASED (Copy and Share Everything) the bunny from Mary Fish, my SU idol.  I don't really buy seasonal stamp sets or word stamp sets, so I used MDS (My Digital Studio) to create the Happy Easter!  I printed it out and punched it with the Oval punch.  

To get your supplies today, check out my online store at

Products Used:
Card Stock: Crumb Cake, Gumball Green, Crisp Cantaloupe and Whisper White
Ribbon: Daffodil Delight 1/4" Stiched Grosgrain 
Accessories: Big Shot, SAB Polka dots embossing folder, fringe scissors, basic pearls, 1-1/4" circle punch, Extra large oval punch, large oval punch, scallop oval punch, Boho blossoms punch

Stampin'Up! News - April Edition

Good Morning,

There's lots of news coming from Stampin'Up! and something I'm extremely excited about!  Stampin'Up! has teamed with Becky Higgins of Project Life!!! I love it!  When I explain to people that I'm a Stampin'Up! demonstrator and what exactly that means, I always struggle when they ask me about scrapbooking.  It's just not something I'm passionate about.  I think that traditional scrapbooking takes too much time, it's hard to come up with layouts, and at the end of the day, I really care about is the pictures and the short story about the picture.  Lately, I've started using Stampin'Up's This and That line and I love it.

Now that SU has partnered with Project Life, I know I will LOVE to scrapbook again!! And to add to my happy week, Stampin'Up! announced this morning, FREE SHIPPING from 4/21 - 4/25!!! The retired list comes out on Monday, 4/21, so check back and get ready to place your orders!! 

You can shop online at 24/7 or contact me at to place your order!
