Kids back to school day!

Good Afternoon! The kids went back to school today so I got a chance to craft! I was able to complete three different challenges...this is a rare occasion!

Never mind the list of other things that need to be done. Anywho.

First, Create with Connie and Mary CCMC 284. I found inspiration here:

Strawberry Slush, Bermuda Bay, Basic Black color challenge. Blue Ribbon stamp and a really old BB DSP.

Try Stampin' on Tuesday 150:
Summer Starfruit, Basic Black, Pistachio Pudding, Pleasant Poppy Stamp Set, Sweet Sorbet DSP
 Finally,  Friday Mashup:

Baby Bundle Stamp, Sweet Sorbet DSP, Crisp Cantaloupe and Summer Starfruit paper, Basic Grey, Summer Starfruit inks. I am itching to add more to this card.

Oh, and this tragedy happened that I'm trying to ignore. I didn't lock the drawer and a certain lady(who likes anything with a screw lid) got into it. At least she said "uh oh"  and I caught her before she made too big of a mess. Sigh...
Yep, that's embossing powder...a whole container of it. Don't worry, the Tangerine Tango was all over the carpet.
 Have a stamptastic day!


  1. Jayme, Poppies and the way you colored them yellow. I always do mine red, but I'm thrilled to see how great they look in a different color. I also love the contrast of the chicken wire embossing and the DP. Thanks for joining us at TSOT. Kathy (DT)

  2. Beautiful cards! Love all the banners on the first card! What a great way to use the challenge colors! Thanks for playing the challenge at Create with Connie and Mary!

  3. 3 lovely cards! I love how you used an "old set" and made a fresh and trendy card. Wonderful use of the colors. So glad you joined us this week at Create with Connie and Mary.

  4. Thanks ladies! I was happy to play along!

  5. Awesome cards! Love our mix of DSP and the great images. And your little photo at the bottom made me laugh! I actually made a huge mess with embossing powder this week myself...couldn't even blame it on my kids. :) Thanks for joining us at Try Stampin' on Tuesday. Hope to see you again soon!

  6. Great selection of cards. I love your yellow poppies, would never have thought to do them yellow they look gorgeous!

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…
