Channeling my Christmas Spirit

I didn’t have my usual Wednesday post yesterday because I’ve been busy preparing for my first Countdown to Christmas stamping event on Friday Night.  Because one of the products that I wanted to use (the Timeless Tidings Card kit) was out of stock, I  needed to plan something different. I was actually in the process… Continue reading Channeling my Christmas Spirit

Mix-It-Up Monday – Emboss Like a Boss

It’s another Mix-It-Up Monday.  Don’t know what that is?  It’s when I take an OLD (retired) Stampin’ Up Product and mix it up with a NEW (in the current catalog) product. Let’s face it - we spend money on buying things we love so why should we put them away when they aren’t current anymore?… Continue reading Mix-It-Up Monday – Emboss Like a Boss

Itty Bitty Quilt Pieces

What do you do with Itty Bitty Pieces that are left over when you are making a card?  Do you throw them away?  Use them for confetti?  Earlier this week I posted several cards using the Quilt Builder’s Framelits.  You can read about my card quilting adventures HERE.   I included this picture at the… Continue reading Itty Bitty Quilt Pieces

Pretty as a…Rusted Pitcher?

I’ve had a lot of fun the past two weeks....I’ve been making cards like a crazy woman. Every time I get a new stamp set and new Designer Series Paper, I just want to sit down and see how many combinations of stamps and paper I can come up with to make a different card.… Continue reading Pretty as a…Rusted Pitcher?

Mix-It-Up Monday – A Quilted Christmas

Yeah!  It’s Mix-it-Up Monday again!  Time to pick something that’s OLD (retired) and something that’s NEW (in the current catalog) and put them together and hopefully come up with something that’s worthy of posting about.  I was about to give up....my brain just wasn’t being creative, when I remembered that I had purchased this a… Continue reading Mix-It-Up Monday – A Quilted Christmas

Just A Note, Stampin' Up!, Thank You

Simply Thankful

As Hurricane Florence bears down on the east coast, it’s time step back and just take a moment to be thankful.  Thankful for a Hurricane?  Well, yes....thankful for those who are praying for the safety of people they don’t even know.  Thankful for family and friends who are taking in those fleeing from the storm.… Continue reading Simply Thankful

Down Home Country Charm

When I first saw the new Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog I knew that I would be getting the stamp set that I used on this card.  I shared more about this card HERE. Even though a lot of people were oohing and ahhhing over all the new Christmas stamps, my mind just wasn’t there yet.… Continue reading Down Home Country Charm

A Cup of Tea with a Side of Butterflies

After posting a few weeks ago about butterflies, you were probably glad that I moved on to something else.   And I did....I moved on to Teacups, then Birds, and Pandas eating leaves among other things.   But I'm back again with a combination of both butterflies and teacups! But did you look closely at… Continue reading A Cup of Tea with a Side of Butterflies

Mix-It-Up Monday – Buffalo Checks Anyone?

Welcome to another Mix-It-Up Monday! Today I am mixing up the NEW Country Home Stamp Set with the the OLD Year of Cheer Designer Series Paper. I'm not sure that this paper is technically OLD because it's still available but only in the Clearance Rack on the Stampin’ Up website, so it’s only available while… Continue reading Mix-It-Up Monday – Buffalo Checks Anyone?
