'Fall' for Foxy Friends!

Hey there!  Stampin' Up! big OnStage convention was this past weekend and oh man! Is there some cute stuff coming out...but..BUT.... Don’t let the new Occasions & Sale-a-bration catalog buzz make you forget about our AMAZING current catalogs we have right now!   Seriously! Theres OVER 250 pages of goodies to ooh and ahh about! #amiright It ‘stinks’ that those aren’t available to order from until JANUARY! ðŸ˜†We haven’t even got through Thanksgiving and Christmas yet! ðŸ˜¬ Speaking of OnStage- I cased this from one of the cards the demos got to make there! Just changed it up using this awesome Spooky Night DSP, Foxy Friends stamps and punch and the new Leaf Punch! The sentiment and tag come from Color Me Happy and Cupcake Cutout Framelets.  Need a catalog? Send me a message and I can either deliver in the Grand Forks, ND area or mail them to you!

Mark my words, I'll be at OnStage in Milwaukee in April. Unless there's roller derby. Or wrestling...Sigh.... Join my team and y…

I'm back!

Good morning, friends!

Grab a cup of your favorite warm beverage because winter has set in here in NoDak!

YAY!!!

I really enjoyed the longer fall we've had opposed to being in Alaska. It was just gorgeous and warm and everything that I've missed about fall while living up in Alaska. (there it's a solid 2 weeks and out!)

If you follow me on Facebook, you've seen I've been really getting back in the swing of posting pretty much daily once I got my room in a semi-useable state. I just love being back in the stamp room playing with my toys! Since I've last posted, I've acquired quite a bit of new Stampin' Up goodies and some "contraband" goodies that I've absolutely fallen in love with. (You've seen them on the Facebook page as well!)

I was going to do this long catch-up post, but I'll spare ya! Its a lot of uploading and frankly, I'm just not in the mood for it. Haha. I've also been debating keeping up my blog or updating it, …

Seeing Pink for TSOT

Good morning friends!

So turns up, today is NOT Monday. It is actually Tuesday and totally spaced posting this entry.

I hope you all had a relaxing Memorial Day. As a Veteran the day means a lot to me, as I've seen so many pass before me. Thank you to those who paid the ultimate price, it's because of them that we are able to enjoy so many freedoms today.


Before it's too late, here is my design team card for this week's Try Stampin' on Tuesday challenge! We had a fun sketch that also had the add-on of a monochromatic theme! It just so happened that I got fun new ombre papers from the NEW SU catalog!



I used the new Eastern Medallions suite and it is really as beautiful as all of the pictures show. I must admit, I jumped on the train to order when it first came out, but was intimidated to use the dies. Now I regret doing so! They are SO beautifully detailed and have TONS of combinations. I used them with the new Lovely Words Thinlets. 

I used NEW 2017-19 In Color Ber…

Tranquility in Tulips

Good morning friends!

Do you ever see a stamp set and not fall in love with it until someone else posts something awesome with it?

Not me. Never.

As a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, we are fortunate to be able to order select items early when a new catalog is about to be released. I LOVED a lot on the pre-order, but not enough to initially buy, ya know? That Tranquil Tulip set stood out to me, but I held off. Then I saw a video using the tulip set and a Label Me Pretty set, which I wasn't a fan of at all.

I. Fell. In. LOVE.

LOVE.

Fast forward to today when both packages are now here and I am in happy stamping bliss land.

Here's what I came up with:


For Mother's Day there were some beautiful purple tulips in my bouquet- which unfortunately made their way to the trash today. I memorialized them with this card. I also wish the Wood Textures DSP would be all in this one pattern, I just LOVE it. Its gorgeous and reminds me of one of our old barns growing up, which had tulips gr…

Wacky Watercooler's "Carry Over Celebration" Hop

Oh Hey! Good evening everyone!

I'm super excited to be a part of the Wacky Watercooler's blog hop again! These ladies are a blast and always have great conversation and projects! I feel like if we all met in person we'd be quite the gang!


My favorites are not the "oldest" sets per-say, but they have survived another annual catalog cycle which is a feat in itself!

The first card I made is one you probably saw on my Facebook in the demo or Stampin' Cafe groups. I love it. Simplicity is my game and this one came to me out of nowhere and I'm so glad it did!



I used a sheet of the gorgeous new Wood Textures DSP pack and stamped the sentiment from Big On Birthdays in Soft Suede to look like it was carved or burned into the wood. I then took the Seasonal Sentiments dies and cut the center out of the card and layered it onto soft suede to give it some dimension, and then tied some "contraband" $1 Target twine around it to complete the rustic look. (I did…

Feminine Sneak Peek!

Hey everyone!

I'm back from a whirlwind weekend of the United We Roll Alaska State Roller Derby Tournament and it was a blast!!

It's probably my favorite event of the year.

 I don't have much time today to chat, as I have 7 minutes to submit my card for the Watercooler Wednesday challenge!!

This week's theme was feminine!

Here goes!


I'll come back and edit once I submit!!
See you soon!

****Okay! Submit with 3 minutes to spare!

This gorgeous DSP is from the NEW Stampin' Up! catalog that will be released June 1! It's called Delightful Daisy and pairs with a pretty awesome punch. The colors are soft and feminine and I think you'll really love this pack. The sentiment, which is so sweet, is from the new Colorful Seasons bundle and I know for a fact you will love this one. It has TONS of stamps and matching dies to coordinate with the set.

I offset the paper and used the scallop circle from the layering circles thinlets, then stamped the sentiment in Versa M…

Teacher Appreciation week!

Good morning!

This week kicks off Teacher Appreciation week, which admittedly I completely spaced until a friend asked for a few cards.

Then I remembered I signed up to bring stuff for my son's school. So a quick Snicker's salad a a few cards later, I was back ahead of the game!

For today's cards, I needed something that I could make quickly, so I went to Pinterest looking for a little inspiration and found that Erica Cerwin made these lovely teacher cards! Great Scott- I was on a roll!

So, here is my cased version!



Anyone else think that Thoughtful Branches should have stuck around longer than a month? You'll have to pry this one from my cold dead hands. 

Adorable, right?! I changed a few things on the card. I didn't have the writing notes stamp, but I did have 1 single piece of some brand of stitched designer paper! I searched high and low and eventually found it. It had beautiful thread stitching around the border, but desperate times called for me to cut it.
