Pink Impact

I just got home from Pink Impact 2012! It was the most amazing experience.  The speakers were God filled women that truly spoke to my heart.  I am leaving with so much to pray and think about. The words Arise and Courage will always mean more to me after this week and I pray that I will be able to put them into my daily life.

I never imagined being able to hear Beth Moore in person. It was such a gift to be able to experience her passion. She is such an inspiration! 

There were so many great speakers that I have a whole list of books to order. The first of which will be by Holly Wagner, the pastor of Oasis Church in California. God Chicks Awaken is a devotional that I must find.

Before even leaving the Gateway Church parking lot I was ordering tickets for the 2013 Pink Impact Conference.  Time to clear that schedule for next April.

All Things Stampin is my newest venture! I have been planning to scrapbook for years! Literally 14 years. I am so behind schedule.  In the last few months I have been introduced to the Stampin' Up line of products and become truely addicted!!  Just recently I signed up as a demonstrator. Here are a few of my sample cards for my upcoming show and Open House 

  Graduation cards for both Weatherford and the Aledo Schools. I really loved getting these together and playing with the different colors. For the Blue I used whisper white and pacific point Stampin Up papers.  For the Orange/ Black card is used pumpkin pie paper. The Graduation stamp came from the Tiny Wishes stamp set. Everyone that attends the Open House on May 3 will get to make one.

Below are a few cards I created while playing around with my new stamps and supplies.  The starter set came with so many goodies!

Now,  I have to say that if it were not for all the stampin bloggers out there that share their creations. As a new stamper, I don't know where I would start without their inspiration! 

The graduation cards were original found posted by Jill Coleman. I'm not sure where I saw them but her site is I was able to look at her design and change them to our school colors. I hope I did her design justice.

The butterfly card I have seen a couple of different ways, but I loved the one I saw by Jacque Craig. I have no idea where I say or her website. I will have to start noting that info when I find one I love.  Mine is not as detailed as hers. Another reason I need to purchase more Stampin Up supplies!! My list is growing and definately includes the Big Shot!
