For you, Love.

Good morning, friends!

Valentines Day is right around the corner and that means love is in the air ;)

That means its time to whip up some quick Valentine's projects! Quick because its now less than a month away.

EEEK!

On top of it just being Valentines day, it's also my son's GOLDEN birthday. How in the heck did he get so old. 14!

While I have a mini crisis, lets talk Try Stampin' on Tuesday's new Tic Tac Toe Challenge!




I decided to go diagonal on the tic tac toe board:

Have you ever made an eclipse card? They can be as easy or hard as you want to make them. I chose the easy route, trying to stay as simplistic as I could and really like how it turned out. My original plan was to have a banner on the bottom but didn't have a sentiment suitable for what I had in mind. 
The sentiment is from the old trusty "Thoughtful Branches" which was a limited supply stamp available a few years ago. 
I'm still sad it never made it into a catalog. Le sighhhhh.

Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Year!!!

I hope you all had an amazing Christmas and a fun New Year's day so far! For Christmas we decided to drive to Arkansas to visit my sister in-law's family! One of the perks to being back in the lower 48 is ease of travel! We left Grand Forks in time to miss some ugly negative temps (which was nice for the first time in 6 years!) We came home and rang in the New Year with the neighbors and had a blast!

I don't make many resolutions anymore. I feel like it personally sets us up for failure, so instead I *try* to be better day to day and make my resolutions into goals and have them be attainable. One of my goals is to blog better by making a plan and not just going at it all willy-nilly. Once we moved I really threw my blog onto the back burner and started using my Facebook page more because its muuuuccchhh easier. I love easy. I do most of my FB page from my phone, so it doesn't require downloading and saving, etc. We'll see.

With the blogging better…

Online Extravaganza Week!

Good evening, Friends!

A late post today, but I just wanted to share a reminder about the Online Extravaganza happening all this week! What better time to save on goodies for yourself or other crafty friends?

I wanted to make a card showcasing Milestone Moments, once of the sets on the 20% off sale (Monday only). I LOVE this set. When it came out in last years (well, I guess it was earlier this year) Occasions catalog (the Jan 2017 catalog) I KNEW I needed to have it. It has gorgeous eye-catching fonts and can be left very simple or can be stepped up into something more amazing.


I cased this beauty out of the 2017-18 Annual Catalog! It was so easy to make and took less than 20 minutes! I purposely kept it very simple because you don't need a ton of stuff to start paper crafting! 

I hope you get some good deals at this year's Online Extravaganza! Drop me a comment, let me know what you scored!!
Have a stamptastic day!!

'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…
