Been busy? Let's catch up!!

 Hi there it's been forever! I know I've had a pretty busy summer, but it's already October and here I am just now getting back to you!    I've had some pretty fabulous trips, and one of them was thanks to you! My entire family went to Thailand through Stampin' Up! on an incentive trip! It was seriously one of the best times of our lives.    So thank you so much for all you have done for me!    I hope to get that and more back to you by teaching you everything that I know. (And I'm pretty crafty!)



 I'll start today by showing you one of my most recent videos. If you didn't know that I have a YouTube channel, we definitely should get you acquainted with that! That way, when you're up in the middle of the night, and you need to craft, you can just start up YouTube and craft right along with me!    I am starting to post videos pretty regularly, and you should be looking for them every Monday and Thursday.

 Here is a Fun card that I made using one of our great new stamp sets - Half Full!   Pull out your paper and craft along! In the meantime check back with me frequently or better yet subscribe to my YouTube channel and follow this blog by email and you never will miss a thing!


Here are some of the awesome products i used to make this card:

Thursday Focus! My favorite NEW color...

Welcome to the Thursday focus.  Today we are focusing on our favorite NEW color from the brand new catalog... need one?  Email me here...  In any case, each year Stampin' Up! adds five brand new colors, and retires 5 past colors... This year, the new colors are: Berry Burst, Fresh Fig, Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink, and Tranquil Tide.

Actually, I really like all of these new colors, but when I opened my box, I was completely drawn to the unlikely Lemon Lime Twist!  I know, right??  You are going to love this fresh pop of color!  I have made a card for you today using this new color and one of the retiring colors, Watermelon Wonder...  and a few other new items!
I have used a Lemon Lime Twist designer series paper here, that is in the paper pack that is now available in the new Eastern Palace Suite pack.  I have also used the new Lemon Lime Twist ribbon, a new stamp set called Happy Birthday Gorgeous, a brand new punch that makes a great daisy, and some fun new embellishments called Clear Faceted Gems!  Here's a close up:


Here's what I used:


Be sure to go check out Robbie's website and see what color she chose as her new favorite!

Thursday Focus - Stitched Shapes Framelits!

Hi there!  Small "hop" today - just Robbie and I...  Some of the challenges we are running into with our focus is that several of the products we wanted to highlight for you are completely sold out.  We don't want to tempt you with items you can't even get if you fall in love with our projects (which I hope you do!)  😏.

So, Robbie and I changed the "focus" for the week to something you may have seen, but not in any catalogs yet (they are featured in the upcoming catalog! - need a new catalog?  Email me here!)  I love these shapes, and there are plenty of them in the set.  You get a full set of stitched circles, squares, and ovals - perfect for everything!

Since I am a quilter too (did you know this about me), I love to make "quilted cards".  You stick the designers series paper to a cardstock panel, then emboss the whole thing - voila!  It looks quilted!  Check this out:

I will list everything I used below - some is staying, some is retiring (if you love it - you should act fast- you can just click on the photo of the item you like and it will take you directly to my store!)

Here is a close up of the stitched shape framelits - since you get the nesting set, I just used two consecutive sizes- the larger in navy, the smaller in white...


Here is what I used to make this card:



Now be sure to hop over to Robbie to see what she has for you today!

Coloring Down the Lines - Mother's day (and Paper Pumpkin alternate)

Good morning!  Today is Wednesday, so we are going to Color Down the Lines!  Today's challenge was to make a Mother's Day card using no flowers... Well, my intentions were good!  I immediately thought - butterflies!  I pulled out one of my old favorite stamp sets, Papillon Potpourri, and thought I would use it before it retires!  I also remembered that the most recent Paper Pumpkin kit had a good sentiment that could be adapted for many different occasions - to include Mother's Day!

Okay, so here is where I failed... Sure I was just stamping butterflies... but when I finished my card I realized that two of the butterflies actually contain flowers...  sorry gang!  (also, when I finished the card I dragged my inky thumb across the front by accident - what a mess I am!!

Here is what I have for you:

eek!  and here is the close up of the "flowers"...


I have used several things that are retiring here, some available while supplies last (elegant butterfly punch), and some will be available (guaranteed) until May 22...  and pne of these stamp sets is ONLY available through Paper Pumpkin...  This month's kit was amazing - and I happen to have a full spare kit available and can get it to you!!  The kit is $20, (plus shipping if you don't live in this area), and included everything you need to make a bunch of fun cards - here's the video that shows how they go together!

Here is what I used (besides the Paper Pumpkin stamp set)

Now be sure to hop over to Liz and see what she has for you!

Thursday Focus - Dragonfly Dreams

Hello!  It has been forever, right?  Well, actually, not so much - it just seems that way... I have had several posts scheduled to run for you while I have been crazy running... but I did it wrong!  Be prepared to get a few "back up" posts, as I want to show you all of the stuff I had made for you!

Right now I want to show you a card I made for a teammate's birthday recently...  I used the Dragonfly Dreams bundle, some watercolor pencils, and a whole lot of Wink of Stella!!  I love that stuff!

And here is a closer-up of the dragonflies... I will record a quick video for you for Monday to show you a fun watercoloring speed-hack!


I also stamped the dots using So Saffron to make them soft... and colored several of the dots with Wink of Stella to make them sparkle like morning...  Impossible to see from the still photos, but I also made a few Wink of Stella dots on the vanilla to make it sparkle too!

Be sure to hop over to Robbie to see what she made using this great CARRYING OVER set!!

Movie Monday - Avant Garden

So last week my Wednesday gang did a fun challenge - we copied a card one of our friends made...  So Fun!  I loved this card made by my friend, Helen, so I copied and posted it for you.
But I don't think you can tell just how easy it really was... You could make stacks in minutes!  So I thought it may help you if I did a quick video to show you how easy it really is...  Here you go!


If you see any supplies you really need, then please click on the photo below and it will take you straight to my store!  Thanks for stopping by!

Thursday Focus - Wait, What?? New Saleabration stuff??

Yep, you heard right!  Stampin' Up! has added a few new items to our Saleabration offerings for the last week of the special.  My friends and I over at the Thursday focus have decided to hop through a bunch of ideas for you, using the newer Saleabration stull!  Don't delay - if you see something you NEED, you need to jump on it right away - all Saleabration items are "while supplies last", and you only have until March 31 to snap them up!

Here is what I have for you today:

There are actually two of the new Saleabration items in this card - do you see them?  One of them is the Seaside embossing folder, and the other is the Tasty Treats designer series paper!

When I first saw that paper, I thought the images may be too child like for anything that I would need in an entire pack of paper, but did you know our papers are all double-sided?  Usually, if one side has a larger bold print, then the back side has a softer, more subtle effect... I am using the "B" side here (only you old people like me know what a B side is...).
Here is what I used to make this card:

and here are the rest of the new Saleabration offerings:


Now be sure to hop over to Robbie and see what she has for you!  Please stop back on Monday for Movie Monday, where I will be showing you the quick and dirty (not so dirty) way I made yesterday's card!  Thanks for hopping along!
