New found love!

So, I have started experimenting with the SU! 'eyelet border' punch. It is too cute! I have never really been into punches, but I think I need to tap into that world a little more! There are so many things to create, I don't know where to start!
Since I am just starting out, it is nice having my mom around. She has been a demonstrator for 12 years, so she has everything under the sun! She has so many ideas!

Anyway- I am proud to say I thought of these two cards on my own! :D

As for Music...

I have been listening to more of the Ambient music recently. Its neat to listen to music with words you cant understand. It shows that music is more than words, its emotion and expression! Here is one from Sigur Ros. It is Icelandic/ Hopelandic music. Hopelandic (by definition) is *not an actual language people speak, as it lacks a consistent grammar structure, word meaning, or even distinct words*. Cool huh?

My First Entry

Hello everyone! This is my first post on here. My name is Keri and I am a Stampin' Up Demonstrator. The purpose for my site is to show off all of the neat cards I make, and maybe make a few friends who like to stamp (or are interested in stamping) too! First off, I am a mother of six month old twins. Their names are Maryjane and Audrey. It's pretty rough raising two at once, but when it's possible I like to do a little self indulgence and tap into my creative side! I am a new demonstrator who had just signed up for Stampin' Up, and I do not know many other people! I would like to gain experience and see other peoples ideas. So, if you have a stampin site full of ideas and come across mine, I would LOVE to see your page! Thanks!

Here is a recent picture of my girls


That is Audrey Lynne!


Here is Maryjane!

Sorry, I don't know how to make the pictures any smaller! I will check back with pictures of my cards I create!
