A New Year's Resolution

SO, I know this is about 26 days late to be finally come up with a gonna-stick-to-it resolution for the year, but here goes. I am going to write on my blog more. That's it, easy peasy. Is it too simple? I think not. If it were any more difficult, it would be four more months before I wrote again. So, instead of any more boring rattling, I'll get on with the projects I've created over the months. Hope you enjoy!

Wish big was for my sister's 38th birthday! I love the colors!!! I love the template that I used for this card more. SO easy!! (I'll update with a picture of it) It is surely a no-fail card!
 LOVE the Christmas Cards that I made. I cased these from the 2010 SU! Holiday Mini catalog.
  A baby shower invitation for a friend. The back has a stamped image of a carriage. (Its hard to see)
 First time using pastels above, I think it went alright. The flower card couldve been darker, but I didn't want the black to over power the coloring.
 A favorite Non-SU! image. This one is Close to My Heart.
 This baby card was for the gift of the baby shower we threw. I LOVE how it came out, and matched her son's nursery!
 This butterfly card was cased out of the 2009-2010 catalog. This was for another friends baby shower with her gift.
This Journey card was cased with a slight change. I cased this from Sandy Laidlaw (

  Hope you all enjoyed today's post. I'll add some more as soon as I know what is already here! I have to get my swap cards started for tomorrow's club meeting at Kathy's house. I'll also post those beauties up (I've been waiting SO LONG to get in on her club, so I'm beyond myself!!)

Have a scrap-tastic day!!

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.


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…

Earning Alaska First Purchase!

Twice in one day?!

I know, how lucky are you!! Lol!

This afternoon, I am excited to be taking part in the Earning Alaska 2018 blog hop again!! This is a group of demonstrators who are working together to reach their fullest potential and earn the Stampin' Up 2018 incentive trip, which is an Alaskan cruise through the southeastern islands! Exciting right! It's an area that since moving to Alaska I've never been, with the exception of Juneau for a roller derby trip a few years back.

This hop is chalked full of talented demonstrators! They inspire me daily!!

The theme of this hop is "First Occasions Catalog Purchase!" Which is exciting because have you seen the thing! It was page after page of awesome! I have an obsession with birthday stamps. A girl can never have too many!! That said, the first item on my list was the Party Animal suite! I had to have it all. The best part is that SU and Sizzix did a great job of making sure the existing balloon punch coordinated…

Pleated Easter Fun!

Good morning! 
As you know, I'm party of a monthly swap group with 9 fabulous ladies in San Antonio and this month's theme was Easter or birthday. Since I already have a TON of birthday cards (they're just SO easy to make) and a stamp set that hadn't been touched yet, I chose to do Easter!
It's more spring, than Easter I found, but......that's fine. Growing up in Wisconsin, (and not from a religious background) easter was the gateway to spring! Green grass, a crisp warming of the air, puddles and bike rides. In Alaska, its snow. That's it. Just snow. Even though it has been really mild this winter. :)
Because of all this snow, I've been in the springtime mood. I've been gravitating to a lot of bright colors and flowers! I just can't get enough of them right now!
After a little pinterest and Stampin' Connection (a service only available to Stampin' Up! Demonstrators) I stumbled upon a pleat card and the rest of my project fell right into…
