Gratitude for Nacho Challenge!

This morning when I logged into Facebook, I noticed a new challenge blog that Tammy Fite participated in and posted about. So, went over and checked it out and decided to play along!!

Here is what I came up with.  Fall is definitely in the mood today! It was the first day of 3rd grade for Evan and a balmy 55 here in North Pole, AK! So, it'll only be a matter of weeks before the leaves start falling and snow makes its way to the ground.

 I love this Days of Gratitude set and chose to emboss them into the paper for a stunning look!

I need to sharpen my border punch, it is fraying my paper :(

Thanks for stopping by! Have a (warmer) stamp-tastic day!


  1. I'm so glad you decided to join us!! I love your card--the embossing looks so good with your leaves!

  2. You used the same technique as I did!!! Love your card!!! Thanks for playing!!!

  3. These colors are definitely growing on me! Love your use of the leaves with a great technique. TFS-

  4. Is your blog supposed to be orange with white harlequin pattern running through it!! I've tried to view in Firefox and Chrome and it's the same!! Just a heads up cause with your grey lettering its hard on the eyes!!! !

  5. You live in North Pole, Alaska? How "cool" is that! Love the colors with the white space. It looks so crisp. Thanks for playing along with the Nachos!

  6. Hi Jeni, no it is supposed to be white where the writing is. I've notice mine is loading slow and it still shows the pattern running through the text. Once it loads it is fine.

    Thanks everyone, glad I got to play along! The colors grew on me after this challenge as well!

  7. Wow, great minds think alike!! Such a pretty card Jayme, and I love the ribbon across the bottom!

    BTW, I too am seeing the orange with the pattern throughout the entire blog, it doesnt change to white for me at all in the text areas :(

  8. Jayme, I love the clean lines of your card! It's simply beautiful! The stamping and embossing, looks so 'home-y', in a warm and cozy way. YOu have done a wonderful job with our color challenge! Thank you for playing along with us @ NAC this week. I do hope we see more of your beautiful work! I just love this card!

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…
