I have created my first Calendar!

Take a peek!  It was fun and easy.  Can't wait to see it in person.
18x12 with a full 12x12 sheet to enjoy after the month is done. 
Just tear it off and put it in your album. 
If you would create a calendar of 2009 you
have just created your 2009 album as well.
It doesn't get much easier!

What are you thankful for?

Take a moment to jot down some reasons you are thankful! 
Then create a great looking page like this one.
Hang it on your everyday display board this month.
We have so much to be thankful for!!! 
I am thankful for all of you.  It is such a great job to be able to
work with each of you.

First Ever Vitual Open House

For 1 week take part in my vitual open house. 
This is a fun and innovative way to get a jump start on your shopping.
I hope you will join in.

I'm excited to announce the Black and Whiter Overnighter!

You have been patiently waiting for this! 
Take the time to fill this out and mail in your registration
before you get busy with the holidays! 
Can't wait to see you all in January.
You can also find this under my files on my website.

Rubber Stamping isn't just for card makers!

I have been enjoying so many of the new
features of StoryBook 3.0. 
Rubber Stamping wasn't one of those. 
I didn't quite understand why I would ever need that in scrapbooking. 
I thought it was just for card makers.
Until one day I was just messing around and figured out why
Rubber Stamping is great for Digital Scrapbookers too.

Here is a sample page that is not using rubber stamping. 
I have used the great papers from the
and then used the flowers from the jewel power palette and the camera from the gazebo pack. 
It doesn't all coordinate together, does it?  Well...rubber stamping would be the solution.

You right click on any item and can choose rubber stamping. 
You then can choose a color or a paper to fill it. 
Now I like this page much better because it all coordinates together. 
How fun!  Enjoy this great tool.

Poster Possibilities

This is a 20x30 created in StoryBook and ordered through!
My plan is to cut it apart and frame it or mount it on foam board.  How fun!! 
I think I just got 3 Christmas presents done.

Get your StoryBook Creator 3.0 Upgrade Now!

I have to say -- I LOVE all the upgrades in Storybook Creator 3.0! Here is a sample page showing some of the new things you can do. (It's not a pretty looking page, but shows lots of the new features.) Some of my favorite new features are the "rubber stamp" technique, the "glow" feature, and the cool new things you do with text!  The new auto populate feature creates the whole book for you.  Nothing could get better than this.

Save $10 on the upgrade to 3.0 if you upgrade before Nov. 1st!  Don't forget to upgrade now before the price increase.

Some fun things to inspire you!

This is one of my favorite things to serve at my fall workshops. 
All the ladies love it too. 
So here is a recipe card for you to enjoy. 
This card was made with the Trick or Treat Digital Addition.
To see all the newest products click here.

Ladies that attended this Friday's workshop were able to get my custom made journaling boxes.
They are perfect for your picfolio album!
Always some fun goodies for those who attend.
Below are my journaling boxes that I made in StoryBook Plus 3.0
to slip into my picfolio album.  I love how easy the Picfolio albums are!

October Calendar Girls Rock

Just wanted to thank everyone who came out yesterday to our October Calendar Girls Crop.  We had 19 ladies come through out the day.  Thanks so much Tammy for hosting this fun event.  We had a great time together.  I think everyone learned something new. 

I shared how amazing the new content manager is and demonstrated how organized you can be because of it.  I can now find things based on keywords such as "flowers, fall, christmas, family".  It is wonderful.

Now when you are in a project in Storybook you can click on Keywords...

...then I can click on any of my keywords.  Here I chose Fall from the list and all my fall items come up (no matter what collections they are in!)  I love it.  Now I don't have to search through each digital kit to find the right fall embellishment or paper.

If you right click on any embellishment it allows you to preview it which zooms in on it. 
It makes it much easier to read. 
Don't forget to upgrade to StoryBook 3.0 if you have 2.0.  It is $9.95 this month only.

Having a Blog makes me SMILE!

Well this is it, my first post on my blog.  How exciting! 
I love capturing moments with my camera that are very everyday. 

As many of you know our family has moved to our little cottage.  We are busy making memories of our new adventure.  Life is more simple here and I am enjoying being away from the busy life for a bit.  I hope you will be encouraged to grab your camera today and capture moments that tell about your everyday life.
