Hey Hey Gang!

Get ready because it’s sketch challenge time at Create with Connie and Mary! Isn’t this a fun one? Come join and get your craft on! Here is my take on the sketch:

Love You

I used the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set and heat embossed it in white and mounted it on the Real Red heart that I made using the new Sweetheart punch.  My cute little paper trio on the left side is from the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack. I can’t forget about the Happy Heart Textured Impressions folder. Oh my, I have so many favorites that I hope Stampin’ Up carry over!





Hello Again,

This time coming from a lazy Sunday. Oooooh so lazy. I’m literally in bed as I type. I decided this week to join a challange from CASology. It’s not too late for you to play too! The challange closes at noon tomorrow so go play while you can!

The challange this week is “Mini”. It just so happens that I recently made a cute little 3×3 for our wonderful mail carrier. It may look a little “Valentines-ie” because it is. I put this in our mailbox on Valentine’s day with a box of chocolates for our Mr. Ed. I’m getting a bit off here but bare with me… Mr. Ed is over 80 years old. He works five days a week delivering our mail. He leaves lollipops in the mailboxes for the kids in the neighborhood and on his day off you can find him and his wife volunteering at the VFW. Such a sweetheart!

Ok, back to the card! This is a simple little number that was fun and easy to make. I just layered the Basic Black card stock with Real Red and a 2.5″ x 2. 5″ sheet from the Stacked with Love DSP stack. These little cards are a great way to use up your scraps!

Anywho, I stamped the sentiment (Something to Say set) in craft white and heat embossed. I layered the hearts with some dimensionals and voila, C’est facile! 🙂

Happy Valentine’s Day

Well, Happy almost Valentines’s Day! I would post tomorrow in true celebration of the holiday but it also happens to be my wedding anniversary. So here is a “love” card I made with some of our new products.


Some products aren’t so new like the gold sequence trim and the chevron embossing folder. The ribbon is from the Sale-a-bration catalog and is a wee bit brighter than the Crisp Cantaloupe (it’s Calypso Coral) but I like the way it pops! I used the new “Stacked with Love DSP Stack” in the Occasions catalog that I loooove. In this picture one of the banners is from the same paper stack and the other is the fancy gold foil paper.

The stamp set is “Crazy About You” and I tell you, you can use this stamp set for any occasion. From “Happy Spring” to “Celebrating Father’s Day”. CUTE CUTE CUTE! And it also has a couple flowers. I used the coordinating Flower Medallion punch under the sentiment.

I think my next purchase is going to be the Bouquet Bigz L Die so be prepared for some flower projects to come! Ugh, I am ready for spring. Are you with me?
