Project Life by Stampin’ Up!

 Project-Life-by-Stampin-Up

Today I’m sharing Project Life by Stampin’ Up! and instead of pictures of pages I have a video.

The first picture you see is of a document I created, the Pocket Pages by Stampin’ Up! Guide … the video explains the reasoning behind it.

Click here to download the Project Life by Stampin Up Pocket Pages Guide – updated on July 30th  (Stampin’ Up! is using numbers to identify the pocket pages.)

The next picture is also of a document I created, Project Life by Stampin’ Up! Getting Started.  It’s a starting place and I will be adding to this document as I continue the journey!

Pictures of pages are not the easiest to show … so here’s my video …. 

Warning! Warning!  …. this post was going to be PERFECT .. but ….  I have the most awful headache today .. Please ignore my wording and revisit this post another day .. more than likely when I feel better I will fix all my mistakes!!

If you attended my live stream last night … you’ve already seen this.   For those of you that were not able to attend or had difficulty … click here to watch the live broadcast.   The Halloween project shown will be posted next week.

 

Thanks & have a great day!!

Live  Stream Tuesday

Tune in Tuesday at 7pm Central time for the next live stream on You Tube.  I have an internet connection and I figured out the settings to stream live using Google Hangouts. (I’m sorry if you heard me crying in the background on one of those tests … I was at my wits end ..but refused to give up.)

Project  Life  Pocket  Page  Guide

Project-Life-Pocket-Page-Guide

I’ve received several emails asking me for the Pocket Page Guide I posted on Facebook over the weekend.  I created the document myself and will be sharing it … after my live stream tomorrow.  I’m going to introduce it on the live stream and then on Wednesday I’ll share it free of charge …. with everyone.  Because I’ve become so obsessed with Project Life by Stampin’ Up! I have to get all my ducks in a row so that I can be very efficient with my time.  Organizing everything first … will allow me to continue to work and play … or at least I hope it will!  

My assistant

Just a heads up ….. I have one assistant and one assistant only and her name is Laura. Her email is [email protected] There was some confusion going on this weekend when I was having trouble with my internet connection and I thought it would best if I clarify that Laura is my only assistant and anyone else claiming to be is not. I appreciate anyone trying to help … but to protect myself I need to make it clear that if you have a question call my business line at 913.901.7551 or email me at [email protected]

Thanks & have a great day!

Live Stream on You Tube

 july29livestream

I’m happy to report that I’ve figured out how to stream live on You Tube.  

What an experience .. and I don’t mean a good one!  

I had two live events scheduled this week and both of them failed …. (insert sad face) 

I worked on the settings for over 15 hours and dealt with a poor internet signal for half of that time.   I did ask both of my children and they both referred me to another site that I also could not figure out.

If you tried to watch one of my live events …. I’m sorry it never worked and I appreciate your patience!! All of you were truly lovely and not a single bad word came my way … THANK YOU!

When I woke up this morning I almost said forget it …. I’ll figure it out another day …but then I remembered that I want to reach my One Million in sales by the end of the year.   I’m sharing this because I constantly tell anyone that will listen that goals keep me focused.  I truly believe that speaking about your goals and writing them down make them happen (I guess we’ll see about that in December).  I have a plan to involve all of you in reaching my one million by December  … and as soon as I can get my brain wrapped around the details I will share it.  I have some thoughts … but I need to decide which direction I want to go.  

Next week I’ll share all my Convention Swaps …. and I’m working on wrapping up those as soon as I’m done with this post.

Thanks and have a wonderful weekend!!

2015 Calendar

 2015calendarb

My project today is the Coaster Calendar 2015.

But before we talk about the Coaster Calendar I need to mention that if you are a member of Chic n Clique … you get the 2015 Calendar file free.  It was posted last night and can be found in the Instructions Forum (as well as the Videos forum).

Now back to the Calendar … I used the Brights Collection of the DSP Stacks and I choose Bermuda Bay this because I LOVE the Striped Grosgrain Ribbon!!  But now that I have my hands on some Holiday Catalog product .. I may have to make another one.

Stampin’ Up! supply list:

  • Ink:  Coastal Cabana Blendablilities 131000
  • Card Stock:  DSP Stacks (Brights) 130134, Bermuda Bay 131197
  • Accessories:  Rhinestones 119246, Brad Bases 132293, Bermuda Bay Striped Grosgrain Ribbon 134551, Glue Sticks 130654, Paper Piercer 126189, Crop a Dile, Sanding Block

Click here if you would like to purchase the 2015 Calendar File and Coasters.

Click here to watch a video on how to cut the calendar.  This year the instructions are not included in the pdf … but you can find them HERE.  (I had several people tell me they kept forgetting to not print the last page … so this year I made it easier.)

Chic  n  Scratch  Live!

Update 7:38pm ….. Event was unsuccessful … I tried to get an internet connection for over an hour and it’s not working.  I’m very sorry!
 

Tune in tonight at 7pm (central time) for a live stream on Google Hangouts … aka You Tube.  If I’m not able to get my camera to work … I’ll switch over to a webcam.  If all goes well you can either find the video here on my blog .. at the bottom of this post … or on my Chic n Scratch You Tube Channel.  We figured out the other night that leaving a comment (on the live video) is the chat box.    

Thanks & have a great day!

p.s. Coming next week … Project Life by Stampin’ Up!   If you a fan of my Chic n Scratch Facebook page I posted a picture of my Pocket Pages Guide this morning …. I will be sharing that template with all of you … for free!

Fabulous Four Card

 Fabulous-Four-Card

The card I’m sharing with you today was given to me at Convention on awards night….. from Stampin’ Up!   Don’t you love it?

The main image is from the Fabulous Four stamp set that can be found on page 13 of the new Catalog.

Before we talk about last night … I have to say … next year please remind me to just take off the week after Convention!! I’m not sure why but I’m so tired.  July has been a  crazy month and I want to do a million things … but my body isn’t listening. It’s mentally and physically exhausting to be behind on everything.  Next week I should be back to normal.  

Holiday  Catalog

The Holiday Catalog goes live on August 28th and as demonstrators we can start ordering the catalogs on August 1st.  Anyone that has ordered a minimum of $50 form me in the last 12 months will receive one automatically (I paid Stampin’ Up! to ship them) and I selected all the names yesterday.  This time I printed the report to have on hand when someone wants to know if they are getting one.   

Google  Hangout

I failed on the Google Hangouts last night.  I tried every Macbook every HD camera in this house … nothing worked.  I continued to research last night and it appears that I needed another piece of hardware to use with my laptop.  I’ve ordered it and it will be here tomorrow.

Now for some additional info …   I can continue using UStream … but … it’s costing me between $300 and $400 a month in overage fees.  Shocking I know!  I called them last month and ask if they had another option for me … they do not.  I have two choices, I can turn the ads back on (when annoys a ton of you) or find a cheaper alternative.  Enter Google Hangouts…. the quality may not be as great …. but it will be affordable.  And if it’s more affordable I can offer them more often.

The reason I failed at the live stream is because I’m trying to use a camera and not a webcam. I prefer that you see my hands … not my face 🙂

Click here if you’d like to see my test with the webcam.

We will try again tomorrow (with my new hardware), Friday July 25th …. and if it doesn’t work … I have a back up plan.  I have a webcam I can use (did two tests last night).  We’ll start at 7pm and if it doesn’t work …. I’ll have all of you just sit tight and I will switch out cameras.  I’m determined to master it … this week!

The other thing I realized after the fact is that leaving a comment (on You Tube) is the Chat Box …but I like using the other one because I can post it on my blog.  Not sure what we’ll do tomorrow … I’ll let ya know.

Stamp  Club  Online

Why am I trying Google Hangouts verses UStream?

The monthly fees and overage charges associated with UStream are pretty steep for a small business and I’ve tried to get a better price but truth be told they cater to large companies. I called them and tried ….I get it … I’m small potatoes compared to some.  If all goes well we’ll being doing live events on a regular basis (especially if it’s free & it works).

Thanks!!

p.s. this event will not be recorded due to the fact that it’s just a test.   I’ll announce the next event during the live stream tonight.

Other  Stuff

OMG I am seriously like a chicken with it’s head cut off … I have so many ideas running through my head and have so many things I need to share with you … and I have no clue where to start!  I need a few more days to gather my wits and decide where to start.

Google  Hangout

One of the things I’m seriously considering is doing a Google Hangout  … I’ve only used UStream for my live streams and the fee is soooo expensive.  So, I decided to try Google and I need a few people to volunteer to help me.  The trail run (oops I mean trial run) is basically just a test to see if everything works… I won’t be sharing Convention stuff or making a project … we’ll just be testing the system.  If you are available Wednesday at 7pm (central time) please email me and I’ll email you the invite.

Conventions  Swaps

I will do my best to get those videos loaded this week …. Sorry!!!  

Project  Life 

beckyhigginsangiejuda

I went to the Meet & Mingle with Becky Higgins while I was at our Stampin’ Up! Convention and I’m seriously obsessed.  

Many of you know my scrapbooking journey began in the mid 90’s with Creative Memories and when I joined Stampin’ Up! I completely stopped.  I have 17 completed albums  ….from way back when … and zero from the last 12 years.  This week I’m moving some stuff around my room so that I can dedicate one desk to Project Life … I can’t wait to get it all organized so I can show you.

Thanks & have a wonderful day!!
