Magic Moments Event Calendar

An event calendar is a nifty calendar that celebrates events year after year! All you do is write a special day in one time and use it year after year! It's an awesome gift! Sheila Wilkerson originally designed this workshop, I altered it a tiny bit! Love my calendar!!

Bahamas Cruise from Close To My Heart

I made these fun layouts of a cruise that I earned FREE from Close to My Heart These are my kids in the Bahamas having a blast. This is one of my all time favorite layouts. I crinkled the paper by balling it up over and over and then sponging over it to make the white/brown background. The page on the right is a 4 photo storage page from Close to My Heart. I simple made one of the photo storage pockets into a trifold accordian so that I could get more pictures on the page. I LOVE putting a ton of pictures on a page instead of making five or six layouts! Call me lazy! :)

Team Photo Scavenger Hunt

DISCLAIMER--It was RAINING, and it was the last day of stamp camp, many previous nights of NO SLEEP, so everyone was mad that we took so many pictures on this day--we definitely DO NOT look our best! But boy did we have fun!


Stamp Camp 2008

Team Photo Scavenger Hunt

Rules: Get as many of these photo op’s as you can in 15 minutes. A different person must take each picture, bonus points for getting the whole team in the picture (a stranger takes the picture). Earn points for creativity, the most photos from the list, being the quickest, most in focus (can I recognize everyone!). Have fun and Good Luck!


1. The whole team on one bed

2. The whole team with the person working the front desk.

3. The whole team “in” the pool

4. The whole team in/on a car

5. The whole team on a piece of workout equipment (same piece, same time)

6. The whole team wearing hats (may be borrowed from others or handmade)

7. The whole team eating (bonus, everyone is eating chocolate)

8. The whole team stamping

9. The whole team with a stranger wearing stamp camp colors

10. The whole team standing in front of the Embassy Suite Sign

Your done! Hurry back!


Guess what--OUR TEAM WON! ! YIPPEE!! I'm not sure we have recovered yet and the maid looks really scared of us, doesn't she? LOL!!

I don't have the photos of the other teams!

Mandy's Banana/Golf Ball Game

Mandy created a game to play during her movement break to get back at us for the spoon game three stamp camps ago. You hit a golf ball by swinging a banana. It's hard! Shawna was so excited to go home and teach her kids all the games she learned at Stamp Camp for Family Home Evening! LOL!!

Stamp Camp Gifts

Every consultant attending stamp camp brings three wrapped, stamping-related gifts. Everyone takes home three gifts. For each gift you bring you get to put your name in a drawing. We draw the tickets throughout stamp camp. The prizes are awesome and creative and there were more, but somehow I didn't get pictures of all of them! One of my favorite parts of stamp camp is to see all the fun gifts!

Display Album class by Trish & Sue

Here are the display album class taught by Trish and Sue. Buffie pimped hers out to be a Prom album, pictured also is her finished album! Both albums use the Game On Level 2 Paper Packet and our new My Creations Display Albums!

Mandy's Interactive Scrapbook Pages

Mandy made an entire album full of interactive scrapbook pages that flip, turn, slide, and pull. These layouts use the Good Times Level 2 Paper Packet. It was awesome! We got to make two of her interactive pages at stamp camp. Shawna was scared to "dismember" a page protector, but by the time we were done, she was weilding her cutting knife like a pro and ready to slice away at her page protectors! It is so fun, once you get past it! Cutting page protectors makes your album able to hold MORE photos! :)

She signed up in January and already has 7 first line team members! Rachel also taught the memory box class--got to love those boxes! They are so fun, Rachel went with a pirate theme! She also made a cool display using a 9x9 accordian showcase album featuring our new notebook papers! THANKS Rachel!

Awesome Scrapbooking Bag





One of my team members gave me this AWESOME, incredible bag at convention! It is very large and roomie and has LOTS Of fun pockets! THANKS Cheryl Wallin!

Bigger than life paper clips


Here are some fun paper clips! Office Max gave these to Teachers in our back to school bags, I had to decorate them to match my file folders with cardstock from the Level 2 Good Times paper pack, Just Blooms flowers, and Bigger brads!

Back to School


An idea for back to school, customize your folders to match your office or classroom! Here are my file folders using Good Times Paper pack! I love them!

Fun chocolate nugget idea




Michelle Loader shared this idea with me when she gave me the Giggles and Grins Nugget box at convention, isn't it cute? It uses the Giggles and Grins Paper and bulk cranberry ribbon.

Ryan wanted me to take a picture of ALL of the boxes he helped me with.... He put the labels on 72 nuggets, put them in the boxes, and cut the bulk cocoa grosgrain ribbon for me to tie on top. I also used the mini medley flowers and chocolate brads.

One bag of nuggets makes about 8 nugget boxes (four in each box). Each box needs 14" of ribon.

More Village People


This is my second grader (school starts tomorrow), he is hard at work helping me get ready for stamp camp. Of course, he is, it involves CHOCOLATE!! :)

Fun gifts



These are very fun pampering gifts for a friend!

Jars $1.00 at Michael's
I used buttercup ink to color the dimensional flower elements by Close To My Heart. Then I added sweet leaf organdy ribbon and sweet leaf designer ribbon round gingham ribbon to the center of a brown button and used a glue dot to attach the flower onto the glass and the button to the center of the flower.

Then I added white tea body soak salts (Village Naturals Bath Shoppe) (albertsons, $3.99, two bottles filled 7 of these jars) and topped the salt off with these fun flowers, they were a little pricey but they were the perfect color so I had to have them to top off the salt and what a fun addition to your bath! (Organic Bath Company, Buttle Bath Petals, Honey Chai, $9.99, I topped off all 7 jars and had some left over!)

It takes a village



Have you ever heard the saying, it takes a village to raise a child? Well, it takes a village to get Kim ready for Stamp Camp! Here is part of my village! LOL!! No one can walk into my office without being drafted to help!
