Spring is in the Air

Since my February Stamp Camp got canceled I thought I would give you a little taste of spring.  Indiana has had unusually spring like weather in January and it has inspired me to get out into the yard, do some spring cleaning, create with flowers and little animals…  Therefore, my March Stamp Camp will be spring themed.  As many of you know, I have a BIG event planned.  You will not want to miss it.  It is called a “Round Robin” event and it is right around the corner!  Here are the details:

Travel around to different tables to create 6 spring themed projects, receive the NEW 2012 A Muse Studio catalog and a scrapbook kit. 

Enjoy drinks and a dessert bar with other stamping friends!

 I need 6 table hostesses!!!  If you fill a table of eight with yourself and 7 friends your admission will be FREE and you will also receive an additional FREE hostess gift.

Early registration is $35 if paid before March 12thLate registration is $40.00.

Take advantage of the EARLY BIRD registration.  Before you know it March 12th will be here.  🙂  Call or email to register or for more information.


Anne’s Baby Bird Mini Scrapbook

Bird's Scrapbook Cover

I changed the banner today in honor of all the snow we’ve gotten here in Indiana.  Brrr… I love snow if I can enjoy it from inside my house. 🙂  But if I have to get out in it, like today, it makes me long for spring.  So… I thought I would showcase this scrapbook I made for my daughter.  She loves nature.  Birds, critters, bugs, reptiles, etc.  She’s been that way from the beginning.  When she was 16 months old we had a robin’s nest full of babies in our dinning room window and she absolutely fell in love with them.  She would beg to go out and see them.  I took pictures every couple of days as they grew all the while trying not to disturb the mother too much.  Anne loves to take the pictures out to look at them after the birds had long flown away.  So I finally sat down and put them in this little scrapbook for her.

Bird Scrapbook p.1

I used the Pemberley Bay Matchbook Kit from The Angel Company.  It is super easy to put together.  It is 100 pound premium, double-sided cardstock.   It is very sturdy for all the handling that mini scrapbooks get.  And, all the pieces are perforated so it is a snap to put together.  It includes all the tags, journaling labels and cardstock accents that you see here plus plenty more that I didn’t use and can save for another project.  It has a total of 7 insert pages.  I only used 4.  The only thing I added was the scrapper’s floss, ribbon, brads and buttons.

It has a very versatile color palette.  It can be used for masculine or feminine themed projects.  But it was perfect for this robin’s nest and beautiful eggs.

And as I said, it was a snap to put together.  I got the full project done in under 2 hours.  Most of that time was spent on picture placement.  If you would like one to put together just email me (kandy@kandyskeepsakes.com) and I can get one {or two, or three 🙂 } out to you.  If you don’t have the time to get it done, check out My Etsy Store.  I have some all ready assembled for you.  All you have to do is add your own pictures.

April Stamp Camp




I am so ready for spring.  This picture is of me back in January shoveling snow.  Snow is beautiful in its own right, but I want the green grass and flowers. 🙂  Since spring is now officially here my April Stamp Camp projects will be full of flowers and “spring things”. 

You still have time to register.  It is scheduled for…

Free Downloads from The Angel Co


The Angel Company has done it again!! 

They have come up with these cute little free downloads that you could print straight from your computer.  These little ducks are originally table place cards.  But, I trimmed mine down and stamped “Happy Easter” where you would put the name.  Then I mounted it to a layered card front.  I used the scrapbook paper “Gentle Blessings” that is now being offered in the Fresh Spring Things March promotion.  Very easy and very quick.  The Angel Company makes it so easy to make Simple, Smart and Sophisiticated projects.
