When one of my dear friends in Australia asked if I could make her a card for her for the arrival of triplets into the family - I wanted the card to be special - because...well triplets don't come along that often! And WOW - that mum is going to need a lot of special!My first instinct was to use the Kangaroo/Koala set - but there really wasn't a 3rd animal option - and so I nixed that. There are a couple of NEW baby sets I am dying to get my hands on in the new catalog....but they … [Read more...] about Triplets Baby Card with Lined Alphabet Bundle and A Little Wild!
In the midst of a super crazy busy week in our family - we will say goodbye to what was one of my favorite catalogs from Stampin' Up! What better what than with this set that from the day it came out was my favorite bundle! This time I have gone with a fun "Tiffany Inspired" blue and silver combination of colors.I love so many elements of this stamp set and die bundle - but that little bow - for that alone -you SO need this in your collection if you don't yet have it! It was … [Read more...] about Farewell To 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! Catalog with One Last Tiffany Inspired Celebration Card
Here is another card that I had for the girls at our recent Shoebox Swap. You may recognize it as something I did with a similar card in March. This time it uses the same Brusho and a new die - but when paired with the returning favorite color Poppy Parade - it gives it a whole new Bright and Cheery Summer feeling!!The dies are called Springtime Impression and are part of a Bundle that is going to be super popular - the stamps are called Abstract Impression. The dies … [Read more...] about Springtime Impressions Cheery Masked Brusho Thinking of You Card
Another Sneak Peek today - although the days are getting so close that it feels like it's time for the catalog to be live!

One of my favorite dies that will be leaving at the end of this month when the current 2017-2018 Catalog retires are the Celebration Thinlits. Earlier this year they were part of my Artistry Inspired series, so I thought I would take this chance to pull the videos and photos back out....especially since they are ON SALE....so you won't miss all that can be done with them.So - here we go!This was one of my favorite cards. That bow is so super fun. I love the double tag and the … [Read more...] about Celebration Thinlits Last Chance to Get This Fabulous Die Set!
This is another Sneak Peek bundle from the upcoming June release of the Stampin' Up! 2018-2019 Catalog! Reminds me a little of Beauty and the Beast... a little of the cathedrals in Italy, Slovenia and Scotland that we have visited on recent trips - and even of my very first days of stamping - when coloring on the back of vellum was ALL the rage!This suite has lots of fun things. You have seen me sneak a peek of the cord before on the Animal Outing card - this time around I used the … [Read more...] about Graceful Glass Long Stained Vellum Card
This is the second in a series of cards using the Apron of Love bundle. This time I took it a whole new direction - no Bridal Shower look, lol. Although you COULD use it for another Couples Shower card if you want - how cute for the guy's gift?!I did use the Dad stamp for a Father's Day or Dad's Birthday card - but you could switch the background up with a wood emboss or wood paper background for a generic male card.Here is your Short and Simple video! Head directly to YouTube … [Read more...] about BBQ, Father's Day or Masculine Birthday Apron of Love Card
Hello from Atlanta! I am busy in the hotel room trying to get this posted before the big party (Like it's 1988!) starts in just over an hour.... I got back from Ireland after nearly 2 fun filled (and totally exhausting weeks) LAST Friday.... with Easter and Jet Lag and just trying to get everything in order home wise and work wise this past week has been rough. Even the party theme *1988* was melancholy. That time of my life was a transition from living in Scotland to moving to … [Read more...] about Cute Bridal Shower or New Home Card with the Apron of Love Bundle

Goodbye February! We have had some lovely glimpses of spring here in the midwest. Although...I must say it makes me a little nervous seeing the winter blast spreading through Europe at the moment. Crazy those shots of Italy in the snow! We leave for Ireland soon and I want the snow very far away by then. I made the mistake of looking at the app on my phone for Dublin's weather this morning. Far too many snowflakes for my liking!Today's card is inspired by … [Read more...] about Farmhouse Style Eucalyptus Card with Lots of Lavender
