The new catalog is amazing.  There is SO many GREAT sets and fresh fonts that I was seriously giddy.


Yes, I’m always giddy with a new catalog.  This catalog has TONS of new stamps.  New stamps that will appeal to everyone.  Even my daughter (13 years old) was over the moon.  LOVE THAT.

I had a blast in Salt Lake City.  Truly it’s not just about the convention itself but the time spent with my friends.  Many of which are best friends since joining this community almost 13 years ago.  I come back refreshed after spending time with them.  They make me laugh until I almost wet my drawers and I feel like I’ve exercised my cheeks for an entire year from laughing.  It’s SO SO good.

Days spent with this girl was amazing.  We ate, shopped, laughed, and acted like teenagers during the day… old ladies at night.  Isn’t that the best?


Ready, OnStage, Stampin' Up!

Here are a few of my team sitting together during the event.  I love them!!

Macy’s was our friend during our stay in Salt Lake City.  We enjoyed the shopping.  I hope Russ is still my friend.  Ha Ha Ha!

It’s tradition that we get together after the event for dinner.  Oh gosh.  I can’t tell you how much my cup is overflowing.  The picture says it all.  The laughing.  I love love love being with these women.  They crack me up and they are so so so talented.  Everyone has a story.  We listen. Everyone has a different style and we love it.  This is what it’s ALL about.  Just being together and enjoying the love of this company- Stampin’ Up!

Seriously, I’m not kidding.  I would love for YOU to be a part of it too.

Stampin' Up!, Be Inspired


This first card was created by my friend Amy Celona.  I love the Gorgeous Grunge paired with the Creative Elements stamp set.  Plus the colors are just beautiful.

This beautiful card was created by Rosemarrie Gonzalez. The Giggle Greetings stamp set is sure to make someone giggle with the quirky greetings.  I love the Linen Thread on the little clip and paired with the Gingham Garden DSP was perfect.  It looks like the image sits on a tablecloth.

I love this card Dawn Bourgette created using one of my favorite designer papers- Eastern Elegance.  I love how she layered all the elements and stamped on the Cotton Ribbon.  The elements are pefectly placed for a shabby chic look.

I believe this card was made from my friend Tiffany Bauer. ???  Washi Tape and the Flower Shop stamp set.  Oh I love his flower set. I'm not a big flower fan but I love this card because it coordinates with the Pansy Punch and makes stamping fast and fun.  NO cutting.  I love how bright and cheerful this card is.   The last detail on this card is what I just fell in love with… the random rhinestones. BEE-utiful!

Vicki Wu created this beauty with this FANTASTIC stamp set Beautifully Baroque.  She also used my favorite Designer Paper Eastern Elegance.  This card just jumps at me with it's elegance.

Lastly, Tracy Geisz made this card above.  Gorgeous watercoloring and I loved the colors she used.  She used the Secret Garden stamp set and this card is just stunning.  The beauty of this stamp set is the matching framelit (Secret Garden) that coordinates with it.  

Thank you to these ladies for swapping with me.  They are just beautiful! Be inspired & create.  I'd love to hear what you think about these cards too.  


Today  the big truck is loading all of our precious cargo.  We are almost ready to exit Virginia and head home to Flordia.  

Today was a rough day of goodbyes.  It's the hardest part of moving.  The hardest today was seeing Alexis say goodbye to her besties.  She handled it WAY better than I did. 

We have also been a little emotional today over one of our beloved pets.  My sweet kitty Shelby has not been well for awhile. We sat the kids down and talked about our options.  Shelby is 16 and her quality of life just isn't what it use to be.  We will take her to the vet to be put down today.  Not what we needed during this move, but I know she would not make the drive. Our hearts are broken as a part of our family leaves us.
