FREE My Digital Studio offer!

I will be giving away a free My Digital Studio (value $79.95+shipping and tax) to a very lucky lady the last week of November—totally free. No shipping, no tax, nothing. Just the MDS, FREE.

Simply place an order of $50 or more between now and November 14th at midnight. Every person’s name will go in the drawing once for every $50 they spent. I will draw the name and announce the winner(s) on Monday, November 23rd.

WINNERS—did I make a typo? NO.

This offer is contingent on at least 10 participants. I will be giving away TWO FREE MDS for every ten $50 increments ordered! That ups your chances considerably! I have never EVER run a sale like this before—I’m so excited to be able to offer it!


Why not place your Christmas card-supply order or holiday gift-making order, and possibly win this fabulous new software for free? Or tell your significant other that if he places that Christmas present order for you during that week, he could possibly additionally win and extra $80 worth of something you’ll love!

Each MDS (whether free or purchased) always comes with a personal one-on-one training session with me. You’ll be blown away at how easily and quickly you can put together fantastic gifts for friends and family, and make stunning scrapbook pages and calendars for yourself. It’s so easy to use, you don’t really need me, but I can show you some great tips and open your eyes to all the possibilities with this amazing new papercrafting solution.

Increase your chances of winning one of the two MDS by placing a $80 or $120 order or even more if you like (total before shipping and tax). This offer cannot be used in conjunction with other coupons, specials or offers. Please read all the fine print at the bottom of this email.

Now is the time, ladies…. I know many of you have been interested in this software but hesitant because of the initial expense. NOW is your chance to get the MDS for 100% free!

Contact me ASAP to place your order! I’m so excited for the two of you who are going to WIN!!! I love my job!!!

Call Vil: (407) 468-3395 or email:

Fine Print: The Free MDS offer is not to be combined with any other promotion, coupon, or sale. Offer is contingent on at least ten $50 increments having been ordered. If there are less than ten $50 increments ordered, the drawing will not be held. This is unlikely. Winners will be notified via email on Monday, November 23rd and posted to my blog the same day.

Hello stampers & scrappers. As most of you know, my father-in-law is in critical condition in the hospital. He was admitted with pneumonia and then ultimately diagnosed with swine flu. It has been an emotional roller coaster, but we believe that God works miracles and Joe will be one of them. For this reason, I haven't posted in a while and I probably won't be able to for a little bit. I will assure you that my next post will be really cute! Please pray for Joe as he battles this horrible illness and for our family.
thanks in advance for your prayers,

Back to reality!

So, I am back to reality (laundry, groceries, and playdates, etc.). The kids did amazing! The 7 hour car ride went one lost it (or even close) and my kids were entertaining the cars driving by @ the rest area while they sat on their potty chairs behind the van. It was quite the experience. Oh yes, and in case you were wondering....the Braves played the Yankees last week.....of course!
On to stamp talk. Here is a sample I made while in Atlanta (and yes, I did take my stamping stuff.....I know ....I have an obsession!). This card features the new Rich Razzleberry & Bermuda Bay In Colors. It also uses the party hearty stamp set. I love this set!

I finally gave in.....

I finally gave in to the temptation of having a scrap/stamp blog. I always want to show off what I am working on and upcoming stuff, but can't seem to upload to the website easily. So, here it is. The scrap shack blog. Most of you know that it will be my dream house one day!

So, here is a pic of the card purses I was working on this weekend. Aren't they adorable?! I will be teaching this class soon. The purse has 2 pockets and holds the cards and the envelopes. You can see more projects on my demo website:
