Who’s That Girl?

The latest issue of Stampin' Success, Stampin' Up!'s demonstrator magazine, was released on-line today.  I'm incredibly excited to share that I was featured this month.  Four summer projects (never featured on my blog–very hush hush until now) are highlighted with the article and photos below.

The colors I used were Summer Sun, Not Quite Navy and Bordering Blue. Please leave me a comment at the end of this post if you have questions on the products used (or otherwise).

Big smile 🙂

  11. Wendie Waldman

    It was great seeing you and your talent in the July SS. I haven’t been receiving your blog updates and I just tried to re-subscribe, and it says I already am. Can you help me with this? Thanks for your help and your inspiration.

    Hi Wendie:

    Thanks for your kind sentiments 🙂

    Regarding the updates–This sometimes happens with Feedblitz and Feedburner (I use Feedburner). I just checked and your email is listed as an active subscription. Have you checked your spam box? Or it’s possible that you need to put [email protected] on your email allowed list. A spam filter is the mostly likely culprit since the subscription seems in order.

    If the suggestions above don’t work, let me know. I’ll delete you and you can resubscribe!.


  12. This is wonderful. I think you need a reality show. Keep on doing what you do because you do it so, so well!

  13. Mary, “CONGRATS”,,,,woo…hooo…!

    And you thought you signed up with SU! to be a hobby demo!!!! There’s a quote by Steve Martin that comes to mind here:
    “I want to be a shooting star! I want to leave a trail of light so BRIGHT that even after people shut their eyes it still burns.”
    You are BLAZING Mary! The article and honor is so well deserved! And it couldn’t have happened to a nicer person! I’M SO PROUD OF YOU! {{{big hugs}}}

  57. Congratulations, Mary!!! The article is fantastic and very well-written. I’m honored to be one of the friendships you’ve developed through your blog. Your blog always provides me with inspiration every time I read it. If only inspiration would turn into actual tangible results with cards, life would be gravy! 🙂 Hopefully when things calm down here, I can devote more time to cardmaking and not have my mind going ten different ways which is probably part of my problem. LOL
