Complete Distraction- New Stamps!

Complete Distraction- Stamps!

All was fine until UPS showed up at my door with the ginormous box of new Stampin’ Up! goodies.  It caused a complete Distraction!  

You know that moment when things are piled up all around you and you have a list a mile long to complete but there is something sparkly and shiny sitting in front of your face.  

I couldn’t help it.  I had to leave the family sitting without mama tonight. The box was too tempting and the bright and shiny had to be unleashed from the box.  

Helllllloooooo new stamps.  

I let out a big squeal and I think I might of scared the kids.  

Once everything was out of the box I had to play.  

A Happy Thing

A Happy Thing, Sale a Bration, Stampin' Up! This chubby little bird was created using a new Sale-a-Bration stamp set that is sure to be a big hit this year.  Honestly, get ready for an incredible Spring season of new beautiful products coming your way.  

I colored this birdie using my new Blendabilities Soft Sky.  Love the softness of this color with the Blendabilities.  

The new twine (White used above), is divine.  Very soft.  I am in love.  

You can see the products I used below.  

Today is a perfectly busy day.  Christmas Shopping, Hair appointment, Christmas party, and sometime I might fit more stamping in. Oh… I’m still trying to finish my Christmas cards too. YIKES.  

Have a BEAUTIFUL weekend.  Enjoy Christmas traditions and if you don’t have any, make some this year.

This year Stampin’ Up! has a fantastic Banner kit that SCREAMS Spring.  I decided to take that Banner Kit and create a few cards with it.  I hope this inspires you in case you are not a “Banner” girl! These are quick and easy!

As you can see below these are some of the layers of Pennants for the banner. I loved layering them onto my card.  I sewed a quick straight stitch to keep the banner pieces together.  BAM! That easy!

Sale-a-Bration- Don’t Miss It!

 Sale-a-Bration- Don’t miss it! Holy Cow!!  It’s the LAST day!!


I’ve been creating like a mad woman all weekend.  I pulled out every Sale-a-Bration item I’ve earned and started creating.  I’ve got ideas that are just dying to get out of my brain and put to work.  It felt Ah-mazing to let them loose.  Are you ready to see what I did? 


Wait…. go ahead and grab a drink and maybe a piece of paper. I’ve really have some fun ideas for you.  


Okay… NOW let’s get rollin’!


Let me add that you will be able to find ALL the supplies that I used on these cards below with clickable links to find them. I’ll give brief descriptions under the photos.   

Sale-a-Bration... Don't Miss it!, Stampin' Up!

Have you ever started creating a card and just felt goosebumps when it was completed? Uh-huh! That’s what happened once I finished this one.  I love taking the twine and twirling it around. Then I started adding the Cork Flowers from the Sweet Sorbet Accessories it just brought it all together.  

The sentiment from this card is from the Hip Hip Hooray Card Kit.  Fantastic Kit by the way for only $19.95! I use the stamps on other cards ALL-THE-TIME!

Another favorite on this card, Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.  Just add’s enough texture to a card.

I can’t deny my love for everything Gold lately.  It’s such a hot trendy thing in the paper craft community.  I love that Stampin’ Up! has so many GOLD products for me to use on my cards.  Especially when I need to go Gold Cray Cray like I did on this card.  YIKES. Look how that Gold Foil looks using the Secret Garden Framelits.  WOWSA!  


You could also venture to say I’m on a Vellum kick too.  I can’t help it.  It’s SO gorgeous. I used Gold embossing powder over my stamped  flowers on the Vellum and then cut them out.  Easy Peasy to cut because our Vellum is nice and thick.  I love it.  There is a F.U.N trick on this card.  

  • Place a strip of your washi tape across a piece of Vellum.  Now punch out anything you want.  I used the Circle Punch from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack.  Love how this accented this card.  

The sentiment for this card comes from the You’re Lovely stamp set.  GREAT set.

I used all kinds of great Sale-a-Bration products for this card.  It shows you can really put all the products together to coordinate.  Just on this card I have the Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper, Banner Blast stamp set, Banner Punch, Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack and the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder.  The best part about this card, it was quick and easy.  


  • Remember that the Hexagon punch is the perfect way to make your banners.

Sale-a-Bration Ends Soon!

It’s amazing how quickly Sale-a-Bration ends SOON!! 


I guess it’s flown by even faster for me since I really missed the beginning while I was helping Russ recover.  Despite that I came in on the tail end I will say that I have thoroughly enjoyed all of my Sale-a-Bration products and they have all been used.  That’s a feat in itself.  


Last night around 1030pm I had a kick of energy and decided to pull my Sale-a-Bration stamp sets out and start playing.  I had an idea in mind and I started stamping.  I wanted quick and simple but elegant.  I’m excited to show you what I created.  

All of these cards below are created using our White Note Cards.  I love these because the canvas size is small enough yet you can still put them in the mail.  20 come in each package with the envelopes.  These are perfect for invitations, or a quick note for your friend.  

Below you will see links to all the products I used for these quick and easy note cards.

Creative Weekend!

Happy Monday!  Boy did I have a creative weekend.  


It started on Thursday night when I stayed up WAY past my bedtime- 2 am!  I did pay for it the next day but could feel the energy that creating gave me.  That energy literally carried me through the entire weekend.  


I did have a mission to achieve over the weekend.  I have to say this strategy was smart on my part.  After not creating in for a bit I decided to pull out all of my Paper Pumpkins that I have stored away since last August (pathetic really) and put all of them together.  Then any kits I had laying around I wanted to work on.  It was a success.  I have all my Paper Pumpkin kits complete!!

I did change up the projects a bit but overall what this provided me was the ability to create and get my creative juices flowing again.  I love the stamp images in our Paper Pumpkin kits.  Keep in mind that our Paper Pumpkin kits are EASY stamping.  It was the perfect projects for me to work on to jump start my creativity and these are perfect for crafters who do not have a lot of times on their hands.  


Once my Paper Pumpkin kits were complete I started working on a few Valentine projects.  


I found this project on Instagram.  Oh how I love this social network.  I see some of the cutest crafting projects on Instagram.  This project was inspired by the Crafted Sparrow.  I downloaded the printable and used my 2 1/2" circle punch to punch the images.  SO simple and so cute.  Inside are the coke bottle gummies.  I created these for my kids teachers and Sunday School teachers.  


Next to tackle was my overflowing basket of project kits.  

Valentines Card

Both of these kits below are part of our Sale-a-Bration.  The banner is ADORABLE and the card kit is quick and easy!!

One of the best parts about my creative weekend was creating with my mom.  Sadly, we have not had the chance to create together since I moved back to Florida.  WOW! We created all day long and Alexis joined in to create her Valentines for her class too.  What a GREAT weekend!
