Cupcake Party

Happy Memorial Day! I wanted to share one last retiring item before May 31st! This is is a envelope and card all-in-one craft! This was decorated with the Cupcake Party Stamp Set and Cupcake Builder Punch which will be retiring tomorrow!  You can also get them together in a Cupcake Party Bundle.   I used my envelope punch…

Build – A – Birthday

This card is one I recently did at a workshop. At each class or workshop (Paper Pumpkin excluded) I try to have a more technique driven card, a treat holder and then a card that is just fun! This was my fun card because working with washi tape is always fun to me! The base…

June Workshops / Paper Pumpkin

June is a GREAT month to host a party with me if you’ve been considering it! Stampin’ Up just announced they are offering an extra $35 reward for the host of any party with $350 worth of sales. That’s on top of the 10% or more of Stampin’ Rewards (FREE products) that you earn as…

Happy Mother’s Day

I wanted to share my two Mother’s Day cards I made this year for my very special Mom and Mother-In-Law! I tried a new technique called water stamping to create some of the flowers.  I haven’t quite perfected it so I’ll wait to give you the tutorial when I have a better system to share….

Do you want fries with that? Part II

As I promised on Wednesday, here are two more ideas using the Fry box and All About Sugar Bundle. When I was growing up it was popular to have little favors to send home with your birthday party attendees.  My mom always coordinated our favors to our birthday party’s theme.  This would be a fun and…

Do you want fries with that?

At the end of the month you can be sure I’ll move on from talking about the retiring products that will be gone on May 31st. But until then there are so many good ones I want to share with you before they are gone! The Fry Box and All About Sugar bundle is one…

No Bones About It

I had the best time helping host a baby shower yesterday for my college roommate.  She has been waiting years and years to have a baby and loved every minute of the shower! When I first found out they were going with a dinosaur theme in the nursery I quickly ordered the No Bones About…

Color Challenge

I am participating in my first Stampin’ Up! Color Challenge! A demonstrator in my upline set this up and has set the colors we’ll be using for each challenge! The goal is to expand our skill with combining various colors and to share ideas among our group.  The first challenge was to only use Garden…

52 Happy Days/Purse

The barn is always a happy place and these fuzzy ears never fail to make me smile. I also wanted to share a project today! This is a very easy paper purse that holds two chocolates (yum!).  I had leftovers chocolates from the class where we did this project and I think they lasted about…

“No Contact” Customer

I just received my first order where the customer selected the “no contact” option when checking out.  While I’m glad Stampin’ Up! takes privacy very seriously I wonder if a customer knows what it means when they select that option.  When a customer opts to have “no contact”, that means that I don’t even know…

Mosaic Punch

This is a punch that I ordered off of the clearance rack and have been getting a lot of use out of it.  It’s still on sale! As you already know, I love using Stampin Up punches for their original design and finding other designs to make with them too! This card is simple yet…

Paper Pumpkin Class

This is a picture from a Paper Pumpkin class held by a demonstrator in Huntsville last week.  I enjoyed meeting several other crafty ladies and it inspired me to start my own Paper Pumpkin Class! The first class will be June 12th from 3-5 and, yes, you can probably count on a Father’s Day card….
