Jar of Flowers = Jar of Sunshine!

The new 2020-21 Annual Catalog went live yesterday! As a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, I’ve been able to order select products from the catalog since the beginning of May. But I wanted to keep using some of my favorite stamps that were retiring. So today is the first day that I am sharing a card made… Continue reading Jar of Flowers = Jar of Sunshine!

I’m sure there… Continue reading Peaceful Poppies – Flying by the Seat of Your Pants

Simple Stamping with Thoughtful Blooms (Almost)

S.I.P.  No, it does not stand for Still In Pajamas.  It stands for Stamps, Ink, Paper.  Nothing else on your card....no ribbon, no bling, no embossing, just pure and simple stamping.  If you want to make cards in a hurry, S.I.P. is the way to go.  But that doesn’t mean that your cards have to… Continue reading Simple Stamping with Thoughtful Blooms (Almost)

Under My Umbrella….on a Rainy Monday Night

As long as I can remember, my Mom has sung with Sweet Adelines....and at 90 years of age, she is still up on the risers singing away as the oldest member of the Scottsdale Chorus chapter.  Early on, my Dad in his infinite wisdom decided that she needed something to help her practice, so in… Continue reading Under My Umbrella….on a Rainy Monday Night
