I goofed out! lol! I did my post so early today that I didn't notice that today is Wednesday! so the challenge for this week is to do ANYTHING SCRAPBOOKING!! you can create a Scrapbook Layout in any size, any shape it can be square, rectangle, circle, oval! you name it!! the thing is that you do some scrapbooking today in honor of the NSD! (National Scrapbooking Day) that is this Saturday, May 2.

Here is the Layout I did for today's challenge at Paper Wings! thanks God the challenge was to do a 20 minutes layout! I used the Lily Anna collection, Bold Flourishes and Punctuation (both soon to be discontinued and with 25% off) and the Alpha set, is discontinued!

Love,
Diana

NO Square Scrapbooking Layout!

Yeah!! I am doing scrapbooking! Since this Saturday is NSD! Paper Wings (an Angels Only forum) is having the NSD week event!! I am loving the Challenges! so I am trying to do them all!! wohoooooooooo!! Yesterday Challenge was to create a NO square layout! Here is my take!! is a 6 X 9 page (because we carry a 6 X 9 album so I have a place for it!) Last year's Online Seminar I designed a complete 6 X 9 album at the Paper Wings Forum, so it was funny to get to this size again!! Hope you like it! I used the Love and Laughter and the Punctuation set (this one is going to be discontinued so you can get it now before is to late with a 25% off!!, what a sweet deal!).

Don't forget to go shopping with me, ONLY two days to take advantage of April's promos. here. Remember that during this month and only during this month you can get the Mabelle Favorites set at a special price and with your $30 order you can buy the Floral Vine SOTM and one of each of the Spring into April sets.

National Scrapbooking Week!

This week at Paper Wings (an Angels Only Forum) we are celebrating NSD week!! and yesterday challenge was to do a Progressive Page!! here is my take! You can visit the gallery here and is open to everyone!

I started using a 6 X 6 white cardstock where I add the picture and stamp a sentiment from Lineart Sentiment, then I add this to a 8 X 8 green cardstock from Mimi. I also stamp and cut some flowers from Graphic Blooms and two strips of Catelynne! I add the scalloped cardstock and mount it on a 12 X 12 Kraft cardstock where I stamp some Flourishes from Playful Parenthesis and a line of dots from Linear Sentiment!

Hope you enjoy it! It was a real challenge for me because I like better the 8 X 8, so at that point I thought my layout was complete!! then to mount it on a 12 X 12, was a real challenge! and I need to point out that I started this journey as a 12 X 12 scrapbooker! can you tell?

Don't forget to go shopping with me here. Remember that during this month and only during this month you can get the Mabelle Favorites set at a special price and with your $30 order you can buy the Floral Vine SOTM and one of each of the Spring into April sets.

Did you forget something?

Oh, well!! I did and I feel terrible. I tried to remember everything, and I used to do so, but I guess I can't do that anymore! What do I forget? To send a card!! I will love to have all dates in my mind and that something sound whenever I need to send a card (about 3 days before?). But that's not happening! I need to be more organized. What system do you use? What works for you? I really need something! I am going to try to add everything to my Palm and that way I can get an alert! That sounds cool; the problem now is to get everything together to add it there, lol! Should I put an announcement here, on Twitter, Facebook and my yahoo groups asking for birthday’s date to all my friends? That way I can add them right away, right? Please give me some advice! I need to work this out so I don’t miss anyone’s important dates!

Here is the card I did in NO time, since the mailman was around the corner and I didn’t want to loose any more time to send a card to my friend! Hope she likes it! I used Catelynne papers and Ordinary Greetings!

Another bunny?

Oh well, I think I am having bunny time! lol! Here is the card I did using the kit Jany sent to me! I love this paper and this bunny was easier to color, comparing to the one I did last week, lol!

The images I got from Jany are from the Some bunny set featured in our Magalogue! I am loving so much this Magalogue, aren't you? If you haven't see it, go here to check it out!! and here to buy from it!

The paper collection is Willoughby, is rich and yummy! right?

I am ready to get some stuff done, but be sure to check back later! and if you need to buy this products, be sure to check my online store!

Happy Crafty Weekend!

Some bunnies want to see you!

WOW! what a week, at least tomorrow is Friday! (talking about Friday don't forget to come an see what I do with the Kit Jany sent me! check last Friday post here). Anyway, I have to tell you that I forgot to charge the camera so no picture for the Wednesday of Challenge yet! I am sorry!

At least, I have this card that I made about a month ago and I haven't share it with you, so here it is! I love this set so much! is so cool that you can create with it for every ocassion! Is the Celebrate the Seasons set. I cut the bunnies faces and then punch circles to create the boddy. I use Catelynne papers and the blossoms and buttons are from the Embelishment jars.

Scrapbook with the FREE download

As you may know I host a scrapbook challenge once a month on Paper Wings Angels Only Forum, so yesterday was my day and my challenge was to use our FREE download paper to do a Scrapbook page! you should also use our amazing stamps to get that pop that we always want on our pages, but keep it simple and fun! Most time people are scare to scrapbook because they think is a lot of work or you need to embelish every inch of your page! and is not true! I want to preserve the treasures of my heart in a fun and simple way! The main goal is just to preserve your legacy, your memories, not to do fancy pages that you can pay more atention to the embelishments than to the photo! so here is my sample! I love those three sets and together with the FREE download paper that TAC is offering us! these are awesome!!

About the picture! yes, that was a Fantastical Fun moment, it was at Seminar 2008 when Mischelle and Cathy was giving me my crown for Star Recruiter! We laugh so much! but I can't tell you what was about, what happened at Wichita stay in Wichita, so if you are an angel and have the opportunity to go to Seminar this year, I will say go for it! Is so much fun! Can't wait to see you there!

Go here to get your Free paper and go shopping with me to get this gorgeous stamps, that I am sure you will use over and over: Edge Designs, Graphic Blooms and Booko Blessings! and don't forget to get your TAC Grab bag!

Love,
Diana

Wednesday of Challenge!

Wohoooooo! I am posting early, yes, I decide that I am going to post the challenge during the morning even without my sample that way you have all day to post and share with us! I am planning to create a banner so you can add it to your blog as well. I hope this helps you to get here and create something for the challenge. Who doesn't love challenges?

Todays challenge is to create with CARDSTOCK only! is a really easy peasy challenge! with cardstock (that usually we have lots of it) we can stamp on it and create our own designs and we also can leave it as is and work with the cutest image we have so that imagae can pop on our creations! I LOVE to create with cardstock only! it looks simple, smart and sophisticated! Don't get me wrong, I LOVE pattern paper, but sometimes mixing different cardstock colors give that pop that we are looking for our creations! Have fun and get back here to add your link!

Love,

I have something to share!! "Estoy Celebrando"

WOW!! I am sooo happy!! I just became Executive with TAC! Is a goal that I had since I became Manager after a year of becoming a Demo with TAC. I just want to share a little bit about me with all of you.

First, I felt in love with TAC since the very first moment I get the catalog on my hands! I didn't signed up inmediately because I didn't get the correct information right away! BUT, after looking around over the net I found Jackie! (my dear upline) she was sooooooooo nice with me! She gave me all the information I need and I signed under her on June - July, 2006. I did it just to get the discount on my personal supplies, so I just gave away the first box of catalogs the starter kit came with! (to some friends I have that do scrapbooking and stamping and haven't see TAC yet). A couple of days later, I got a call from one of them ordering $250 in products! I was soooooo happy! and excited, I told DH: "honey I think this is something else! I am going to give it a try and see what happen". I keep sharing with my friends about it and I did the Perfect Start Program completely! YEAH!! I received $500 in stamps I was the happiest girl on earth! So I keep the good work sharing my passion for TAC and in no time I became Team Leader and by Seminar 2007 (a year later) I became Manager and thanks to DH I went to Seminar that same year and I make it to the Club Med (a luncheon for Managers and above). It was soooo cool! meeting your fellow angels and TAC staff! Seminar was the must exciting thing that happened to me since I married and have my two precious daughters. It was incredibly fun! and that wasn't everything, on Seminar Banquet, I was having so much fun and having a good time when TAC start the Awards Ceremony (I didn't have an idea on what was that) when they called my name for START Recruiter award! and then for Rising Star award, ohhhhh, I was WOW! I cried, I laugh, it was just the BEST time ever! When I came from Seminar I was really excited and want to share it with everyone. I keep sharing with others my passion, recruiting, teaching, just having FUN! times flies and Seminar again! I won the STAR Recruiter award again and I was featured as Catalogue DESIGNER! it was Awesome!! (My goal was to made Executive by that year but I didn't made it because of my sales, I recruit all my customers because I am so passionate about the opportunity that is contagious, lol). But here I am April, 2009 just 2 years and 9 months since I became an angel and I am Executie, lol!! Can you tell I am really excited? I hope you can celebrate with me! Here I share a little bit of what happened in this two years with TAC! This pictures said so much!! I will love to add more pictures later for this year! I haven't been so active with classes and such, but I keep working through my blog, my newsletter and phone calls. The best part of having your own business is that you work as you can, and do what is best for God, your family and you!

I also want to take the time to say THANKS! GRACIAS! to all of you! Without your support and your friendship, I wouldn't make it! Thanks to my downlines, my customers, my fellow angels, my friends, TAC staff and all of you that leave comments here for me! YOU are my inspiration!

Love,
Diana

Yes, if you know me you know that I love every kind of minis, I have been working with minis for a while (I have some projects that I haven't share with you yet, but are on my table *wink*). While I was looking for scraps for the Wednesday of Challenge this week (check here); I found a bunch of the tags that came with our paper collections! and I was trying to figure out another way to use them! So far I have use them for Scrapbooking layouts and cards. What about using them for my mini cards? and this was what I came with! I love them! and I plan to do more and more of this babies! They can be a great way to show appreciation and to embelish a little gift or a gift bag, and since I use Ordinary Greetings and Trendy Greetings the possibilities are endless with a lot of greetings to add on.If you have any other tip to use this precious babies (I can tell you that I have LOTS!!) please share with us!
