I am so thankful for inspiration from God - He will bless us with ideas and answers to our prayers when we seek his council and follow his Spirit

A trip down memory lane

This post talks about my friend Beverly Penick and how she loves my contests.

It also talks about the pre-convention event we held in July of 2008.
We always have a Ronald McDonald house cards for the kids table where members can create items to be donated to our Las Vegas house.


I also pulled a few photos off my blog to show you where my real success with Stampin Up began.



One day I was in my craft room. I was listening to a talk on tape. I don't remember what the talk was about but I do remember the feeling that washed over me. The feeling gave me the desire to pray. My prayer was simple. I asked to be inspired to create something that would knock my customers socks off. I went back to my craft room and continued to listen to uplifting music while I worked.


This was one of the ideas we came up with. I say we because I did not come up with this all on 
my own. I believe I was blessed with Divine inspiration.

The 6X6 is in a page protector and has hinges made with the round tab punch. Then the hinges are attached to the outside of the 12X12 sheet protector creating an interactive scrapbook page!
That idea led to this one below.

The 6X6 and the 81/2 X 11 lift up 
This allows me to get 8 or more good size photos on one layout!

That idea led to this idea below.
This is five 6X6 sheet protectors attached to the front of this 12X12.

You can get 11 photos on this page. Then later on my husband suggested that I trim 1/4 inch off the sheet protectors so that I could get 2 rows of pages protectors all on this single 12X12!!!!!

I am so thankful for inspiration from God
I did end up knocking their socks off. 
I also sold 15 of these page kits in the first hour of my scrapbook crop.

I went on to teach this class over and over again over the next 2 years. It was so great to see how excited everyone was about this technique. I was also pleased to give the glory to God for the inspiration. He will bless us with ideas and answers to our prayers when we seek his council and follow his Spirit.

See how each page lifts up? How cool is that!




here are some other fun projects and pages I have been blessed to create







May God bless and inspire you
as you share what you love! 

May God bless you and your family,
