Welcome our first Guest Designers!

Good Morning Everyone!

I hope you are all staying safe and warm in this crazy polar vortex weather we are having! And for our friends down under, I hope you are cooling off! Too bad we can't share each other's weather!

To start off this week, I have some exciting news! Today I am announcing our first three guest designers who will participate in our release coming next month!

I have to tell you that this was one of the hardest decision we had to make. I can't believe the amount of talented paper crafters we have at StampTV. Every single entry was just beautiful! I feel so blessed to have so many talented stampers sharing in our gallery. And I am so glad that we will  be able to feature many of those talented card makers in future guest designer spots.

This month, we welcome these three talented ladies!

Here is one of Allie's beautiful entries.


Here is one of Donna's beautiful entries.

Here is one of Leslie's beautiful entries

Congratulations to these three talented designers! Please give them a warm welcome. I am so excited to see what they make with our new release. :)

Thanks to everyone who entered. I know there are many more stars to come!

Make it a great day and happy stamping!

My card project features the Little Branches stamp set from the new kit. I was in the mood for some bring springtime colors so I grabbed some Turquoise Sea, Sweet Mango and Fresh Asparagus Ink and made a Slide Puzzle Card. (Click on the card for a larger view)

Welcome 2014.

So much has changed in just one year.

Alicia moved to New York for college.

She is so happy there in the middle of all the action! She is meeting people, making films and learning so much. I couldn't be more proud of her and excited for her future!

We moved to Milwaukee.

We love our new town, we love our new home. I love living in a big city. You can the girl out of the city but you can't take the city out of the girl. I've already started to discover amazing restaurants, shops and other unique places that only big cities can offer. I feel more alive!

Rina is at a new school.

She is doing so well in school. They have bumped her up to more advanced classes in both math and science. And she's making some really nice friends.

She is swimming with a new team.

Her new team mates have embraced her. :) Here she is getting a hug from a team mate.
She is learning so much with her new team. She knows it won't happen overnight because there are a TON of changes being made to her strokes and she is getting used to the new training schedule and style but she feels great and she loves her team mates so much. Her new coach is great and she really likes his coaching style.
And our business is growing and expanding into new product lines coming soon. With a few new pieces of equipment, the Gina K. Designs line will grow in some amazing directions over the next six months. We are really excited about all of this! I can't wait to share more with you.

SO much change.
And so much better...


Sometimes you get in a rut.

As Albert Einstein said, "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." The results were the same. Over and over again.

It was time.


My word for 2014 is Reclaim.

This year I will reclaim the parts of my life that began to die out in 2013. I will reclaim happiness. Reclaim peace. I'll reclaim friendships, trust, success, desire, creativity, fun, laughter, confidence, inclusion, respect, health... all of which were fading fast where I was.

I don't expect instant success. I know that it took some time to fall behind and it will take some time to gain it back. But in my new positive environment, I can already see so many of those changes taking shape. I already feel 100% happier. And so does my family. :)

I am thankful for the lessons of 2013. I learned a lot about people. I learned even more about myself.  And when the past comes to call, I think I will let it go to voicemail. It has nothing new to say.

Welcome 2014. Time to Reclaim me.
