Meet The 1st ever KinderStampO Design Team Plus 1st DT Blog Hop!!!!

Design Team Member Button

Good morning to all of you!  Today is a very Special day, and I have been dying to share this wonderful news with you all!  As you might have figured out by now I am now part of the KinderStampO Design Team!!!!!!  Still doing my HAPPY DANCE!!!!!  When I got the email, inviting me to be a part of this DT!, I about fell off my chair!  I have been so in love with KinderStampO's stamps and Charms and have alway wanted to do more with them.  Now I have that chance. Being that, this is the First DT for KinderStampO, we have a lot to learn and get right, but so far, it's been great, meeting all the other members and learning more about them.  I know that this Team is going to Shine and set the Bar for other Design Teams to come.  So with out further chitt chat, I have put together some projects featuring the KinderStampO products, and a little something for you to get to know me better.  Enjoy! and remember if you are interested in purchasing any of these wonderful stamp sets or charms just go to .

This first project, I created for my daughter, she is a 22 year olf college student, who can't ever have enough accessories!!....  I used one of KinderStampO's charms from the Vintage Findings.  let me just say, these charms are Wonderful!!!  Love the old feeling and they are durable as well.  Great for embellishments on cards and Layouts.

Here is my daughter wearing her new necklace.... ;)

After finding out I made the Team, I made a card to send to Mrs. Jess.  Simple and fast, took me under 5 minutes to make.
used some papaer from The Old world 4x6 paper stack from DCWV, them I die cut it using a QuicKutz die, I used some Tim Holtz distress ink and added my handmade flower plus a charm from the Vintage Findings from KinderStampO.them some bling a pin and ribbon.  The sentiment is from the Friendship stamp set.

My last project, was way too much fun making!!!  I made this bi-fold card with a scalloped window, I embossed a clear recycled packaging for the front of the card

This little guy here, does something special.....

Yup!!!  He glows in the Dark!!!!  

The sentiment is from KinderStampO's New release Stam Set Vintage Halloween.

I am a fulltime mom and have my own jewelry business. I have 4 children; a 22 year old- Destiny, 20- Mario, 12- Ricardo, and an 8 year old - Lourdes (lulu). I live in a very small "city" outside of Round Rock,TX. I have been married for 17 years. I am also a Scrapbook Instructor at our LSS. I run 10+ miles every morning and am also a Beachbody Coach. I do P90X and Insanity to stay fit and healthy. I love scary movies and have a problem with bugs.

I have been scrapbooking for over 12 years. I started in a hospital room and have just been in love with it since. I do just about anything and everything from painting, drawing, altered projects, home decor, card making and I even crochet. I love to make mini albums and use recycle products in my creations. I like to tell people when they get stuck with a project, to just relax and have fun with it. My style is very Vintage/Chic. I have no rules and love to create "outside" the box. I often lay on the floor in the middle of my craft room, facing the cieling and waiting for ideas to come...hehehe  I never plan my projects, I just start and go with whatever comes to my mind.

I am inspired by my children, husband and just everyday events. i love taking pictures of "everything"! I love to teach others what I know and makes me happy. I always say "this is not just a "craft" or a "hobby". What we do here is our way of preserving our past, present and future for our children and future generations. My scrapbooking is my Legacy to my children ... I hope that I will be able to inspire others to enjoy and have fun preserving their families history.

So there you have it, I hope this gives you an idea of who I am and what I hope to accomplish here.
