Only 3 Days Left!

WHOA! It's really happening.  The Spring Mini is coming to an END!


Do you have all of your favorites from this great Mini Catalog?  I thought I would share some of my favorite projects from the Spring Mini this year.  

Kimberly Van Diepen, Stampin' Up!

I am in love with anything Doily! They are delicate and add so much to any project! 

See all the products used on this project and more HERE




I ADORE the delicate boxes, even better… the Kraft Bakers Twine. *AWESOME!* Kimberly Van Diepen Stampin' Up!

One of my favorite things about the Spring Mini has been the kits.  I have definitely used them and enjoyed them.  The delicate Boutique Boxes kit is FANTASTIC!  You can see all the details on this kit HERE.

The Secret Garden Bundle has been a HUGE hit during this mini catalog.  The best thing is creating flowers and then using the framelits to cut them out.  Perfection.  You can see the details for this project HERE! 


What has been your favorite stamp or product this Spring season? 

Remember, you can find all of your favorite products in my Online Store.  There are not many days left to to grab your favorite products. May 31st is the LAST day for the Spring Mini!!  


Now for something simple and new.  

Kimberly Van Diepen, Stampin' Up!



I used the Hexagon Textured Embossing Folder on the Smoky Slate Cardstock.  I have to say I'm falling in love with this color.

To create the background with the Washi Tape, I simply ran them across the cardstock diagonally and trimmed any excess that was hanging.  I love the Epic Day Washi tape and especially love how it coordinates with the Smoky Slate Cardstock.

While I was on the road NEW Digital Downloads appeared! Even better… A FREE Digital Download.  *LOVE* FREE!  

Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, My Digital Studio


I'm in love with this new Digital Download.  

All the geometrical lines are SO trendy and who doesn't love a snowflake?

I prefer snowflakes on paper just like these! <smirk>

While Russ was driving our Chariot back home I kept myself busy by creating with My Digital Studio.  

It made the time go by so quickly.  

Here is a layout I created….

Happy Day! 


On the Road Again…

It's like the old Willie Nelson song… "On the Road Again… !"  We drove about 10 hours today in rain, rain, and more rain.  The rain wasn't so bad until the fog set in. Oh my. What a dreary traveling day.  It was bad enough trying to see through teary eyes leaving my family.  We are settled in for the night and have about 6 hours left tomorrow.  I will be happy to get home, unpack and get back to reality.  

I have another quick post for today and sharing more from the Spring Mini.

I'm in love with the new Pool Party Embossing Powder. I love to emboss.  I think it adds SO much to any project.  Do you love that Chevron heart? It makes my heart sing. 

I hope you are just as excited about the Spring Mini as I am.  SO many great products.  

Here is another Quick MDS layout too.

Lastly, my Mom and I went antique shopping on Monday.  I like to call this "Junkin'!"  Boy did we have a GREAT time.  

Here are a few pics of things I wanted but needed to rent a U-Haul to bring it home.

Amazing junkin' sites in Pensacola.  I can't wait to go back and do it again.  

I should be back tomorrow on my normal schedule.  

Of course you know how it is when you come back home after being gone 10 days.

I'm sure a trip to the grocery store is in order.  

I feel a "list" brewing…
