Decorating Linen Albums

Stunning. Yes, that is exactly what this is! I bet you feel the same way.

I just never think about decorating the outside of the my linen albums, but I'm so anxious to try this I can't stand it. This album was created by Shelli Gardner, Stampin' Up!'s CEO. Don't let the title scare you because she is such an approachable and generous person! I've seen and spoken with her numerous times and she makes the Stampin' Up! demonstrators feel special and always makes time for us, no matter how many pressures and commitments she has. I urge you to visit her blog she recently started which is www.soshelli.com.

This album perfectly represents Shelli's style, which is elegant and vintage. Have you noticed the little hearts in the new 2009 Spring Summer IBC? That means they are part of the So Shelli Signature Collection which exemplifies her style!! She even showed us how to do this at our recent Leadership conference by using the new line of Stampin' Up! stencils found in the new Decor Elements catalog on the last inside page. If memory serves me correctly, I believe she used Craft ink and attached the hodgepodge hardware using Crystal Effects. Hopefully, my stencil will be here on Thursday so maybe I can find some time soon to play with this!!!! Oh, and check out how she incorporated the flowers from the Pretties Kit that she colored!!!

Well, I'm off to the legal world for another day! But I'll be home tonight and plan on completing the projects for Saturday's Stamp-A-Stamp. I can't wait because you know, I just love life when I stamp!

Enjoy your day!!!!
