Take a look at that adorable bunny face! Isn't he just BEGGING to be part of your stamp collection?! Today's project uses the Sweet Cups from the Occasions Catalog. They remind me of a little bit larger version of the ice cream cups with the little wooden spoons we used to get at the drive in as children. They have a wax coating, so they are perfect for any food related project you may be thinking of. Showers, Easter, Tea, Table Favors, Weddings, Parties, Graduation - so many ideas! … [Read more...] about Sweet Cups with Fable Friends – Shower or Easter Favors or Treat Cups!

This week I host one of my favorite stamping events - 3 times a year I do a new catalog stamp day with my demonstrators - just the ones that are "mine" There are other days that it is our whole group (and I love those too!). But these are smaller and more intimate - and I just love being with these ladies.There is also the added bonus that it always means that I have had NEW stuff to play with! I also try REALLY hard to stay off Pinterest and as much other social media as I can … [Read more...] about Country Lane – Kicking Off Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek Week!
I needed to pick a few of my most projects from the past year that represent my "best work" from the last year. Ug....how do you even do that, lol. So - I turned to Pinterest and just went with what seemed to be popular over there! It seemed easier to let other people choose for me.This card was one we just did the week at Camp - everyone who did it loved it. It is actually a 2 in one project. But my pick would be the second card that is created. You … [Read more...] about Picking Some of my Most Pinned Projects!
Today's project is SO MUCH FUN!I am not sure what to call it - I know there are others out there that have probably done something similar. I like to do original work, so I don't spend much time at all looking at tutorials (I know, I post them and I don't know that I have ever even watched an entire one on Youtube, lol) It is part of the reason I LOVE to get the Preorder. There is nothing I enjoy more than getting products that have not been used before - I pop open the box and … [Read more...] about Angels on Earth – Italian Old World Style Embossing Paste Card – How to Find Design Inspiration

All of the textures - new, old.I know not everywhere you … [Read more...] about Embossing Paste + Shimmer Cardstock + Blends = Holiday Catalog Magic! Angels on Earth

It seems like it has been a minute since I have posted a video using one of my most FAVORITE coloring mediums - the Stampin' Blends. But - it hasn't. I thought it had. But the delightful Mermaid has like a bajillion Pins over on Pinterest. Seriously - she may end of being my most popular Pin ever. She was colored with Blends and I filmed her. So I guess - it's just because I have been using the Pencils (my OG coloring love!) that it feel like it's been a … [Read more...] about Trick or Tweet Kitty Mummy Halloween Holiday 2018 Sneak Peek – Adorable and Fun Technique with the Stampin' Blends!
