Mini Album Update, plus some super exciting news.....

A warm welcome to my Craft Room. I have been MIA, as you know due to Pneumonia that led into some serious complications. I am delighted to be able to do this video for you today. It is my second day up from complete bed rest, which feels great. As you must already know, I entered a Design Team Call, for the wonderfully talented Sherri Baldy Design Team, over on My Besties Stamps, which you can view here . I was watching a video one evening last week, when the wonderfully talented Jen Evers was sending out an invite to join the My Besties Design Team Call. I thought, "why not", I love to design, and colour, so around midnight I sent some photo's of my work to Jen's channel, which you can quickly go, and watch some of her creative video's here at Jen's You Tube Channel. I seriously didn't expect to hear from her, not because I did'nt have confidence in my work, but I sure had very little experience in the Design Team Work, and how to manage my computer. I am technically computer illiterate. lol  I found Sherri Baldy Stamps, when a dear friend of mine sent one to me months ago. I remember thinking how absolutely gorgeous they were, and I became instantly hooked on any Blogs that were designing with Sherri's Stamps. That is how I found this remarkable young lady Jen Evers,  pronounced EEEEver's, heavy on the EEEE. LOL I can say this now, because over the last few weeks I have become friends with Jen, and think the world of her already. Jen emailed me to express she had chosen the Design Team for this term, but would I be interested in being a Guest Designer for the month of April? Would I?????? I was so excited when she asked me to think about it, I actually gave her ONE MINUTE before I responded. hahaha I would be delighted to join in with such a remarkable group of designer's, and get the work with them. Please join with me to check out Jen's Video's, and get familiar with Sherri Baldy, and her remarkable, adorable, exquisite stamps, and Digi's. A new line of 6x6 Vintage Papers are on the way to my home, because just looking at them I ordered 2 of each. Sherri has a sale going on right now, and if you put the CODE "yourespecial50" when you order, you will receive 50 percent off your entire order. I will post some pictures of Sherri at the CHA Convention, after I get this uploaded. Her booth was one of the most adorable sights to behold. Everyone that watches my video's, or is on my Blog, knows that this is the first time I have linked anything on my Blog. I never knew how to bring my Blog up to speed, which meant I had to learn fast how to LINK products, and whatever else I wanted you to instantly have connection to, and give you a more informative Blog experience, which all my Subscriber's deserve. Thank you, and I look forward to learning more, as I am feeling better. Huge Smiles Thank you to Sherri Baldy, and her amazing team. List of Supplies Below              http://www.lindystampgang.com
I thought I would mention a product I love on my Blog each time I post a video. This is the machine of choice for me. I have the Big Shot as a back up, but you can't beat an electric machine. Use your Michael's Coupon, and really save.

Thank you to my special deaf friends who watch my video's. You asked me to post this for your friends to see at your Stamp Class. You are all very special to me, and I will post a new video for you soon. My other Sign Language card video's can be found on YouTube if you're interested. Here is the video you asked me to place here on my Blog! I was overjoyed to get your email today! God Bless you my friends!

Looking back in time!

Thank you, and welcome to my Blog. I thought I'd place one of my first cards, with a pull up tag to show you today. Unfortunately, I'm down with this Pneumonia bug, but will be back as soon as I'm feeling well. Thank you as always, for taking time out of your day to join me in my Craft Room.

A Mini Vintage Suitcase by Sixxix

Welcome to my Craft Room. I am so pleased you have joined me today! Although making a Mini Album Step by Step, may seem tedious at times, the finished outcome brings such an overwhelming accomplishment to the one creating it! I want to thank you for joining me throughout this process. I wanted to add some new, yet old elements to my Album, so I went shopping right here in my very own Craft Room, and found some amazing supplies....smiles! Have you ever done that! I mean, shopped in your own Craft Room? It's so much fun! LOL I went to the section where I house all my large dies. It was like a child in a candy shop! I am amazed how much we set aside, thinking one day we will use it, but sadly it gets overlooked. I am going to make a conscious effort, to start using the terrific supplies I already own, and share the projects with you. I hope you enjoy this little embellishment I picked out to add to my Album.
