It's a beautiful summer day here in south-western Ontario and although I have noting stamp related to show you today I do have something inspirational (which might inkspire you to stamp).

Wisdom is often presented in simple yet beautiful ways ... enjoy

While I wait for the New Catalogue

This week has been somewhat over whelming and busy with the quarterly business meeting on Monday night, my super upline meeting last night, along with trying to figure out how to set up my own blog and the launch of the new Fall Winter Catalogue from Stampin' Up! I have not had time to do much stamping.
My 12year old daughter Nicole has caught the stamping bug and so I wanted to show you a card she stamped for her brothers' birthday. She enjoys making her own cards with her own creative style. Well done Nicole.

So much enthusiasm and excitement

Last night I attended my first quarterly meeting with Alicia and her team - "Stamps R Us" and let me just say Alicia puts on a fabulous meeting complete with a demonstrator theater, awards, prizes, make and take and we heard from every demonstrator who attended Convention '08 recently in Utah.
I can only imagine what convention is like (times by one hundred)because there was a lot of excitement and enthusiasm in the room last night with the 80 ladies. Meeting so many ladies who share the same passion for Stamping is so much fun.
I have been stamping for three years and have recently became a demonstrator with the mind set to purchase my stamps at a discount and maybe a few items and in this short time I have developed a love for paper crafting and wnt to turn it into a business that allows me to be at home and do what I love.
I cannot imagine my life without Stampin' Up! and would like to share the opportunity with those around me. If you have ever thought about getting some free product, or product at a discount, or making some extra income or wondered what Stampin' Up! has to offer this opportunity could be for you! Worst case scenario you get lots of great stamping stuff at a very discounted price in the starter kit! Best case scenario you establish relationships and friendships that will last a life time and maybe some free stamps! With the release of the new catalogue on August 11th, there is a new starter kit that you can totally customize yourself PLUS Stampin' Up! is offering a FREE stamp set of your choice.
If you live in the London area, I invite you attend my upline's quarterly meeting in October 2008 with me to check out what Stampin' Up! has to offer or my upline (Heather is sweet, fun and so talented). If you are a Canadian and think that this may be an opportunity you would enjoy I encourage you to email me privately at inkspiredwithdale@gmail.com as I would love to talk with you to see if you think Stampin' Up! would be right for you or check out the Stampin Up! webpage at http://www.stampinup.com/
OK, I can't believe how GREAT Stampin' Up! truly is! Stampin' Up! is having a sign up deal starting August 11th!!! HOW AMAZING!!! If Stampin' Up! is something you've ever thought about, if you want cheaper stamping supplies or you just spend lots (I know a bunch of you that fit this category!) this could be for you!!! Here are the details:
