Try Stampin' on Tuesday Blog Hippity Hop for 295!

Good morning!!

It's feeling a little more like winter up here in Alaska! Not much snow yet, but hopefully soon? The masses are worried about the lack of ground insulation for buried pipes and whatnot, and I'm over here like "But I like not using a coat and snow boots"


So for this blog hop, we have a TON of talent in store! We had a great layout to use and it's the last of our Christmas showcase.

 Fun, right?

Here I go again with the Simply Scrappin' kits! I'm kind of in the mood to use all my old retired stuff. It's kind of a personal goal to get a lot of it all used up. Baby steps. Because I am a hoarder. Don't judge, we're all in the same boat. ;)

I used some old and a touch of new with the Thankful Banners stamp paired with the Sparkly Seasons sentiment.

NEXT on the hop, Vicki's Blog!

  1. Adorable! I love the striped paper and I actually own the reindeer stamp. :)

  2. No judgement here for sure! We are all in the same boat. I have stuff that is years old - good grief! I love using up old stuff too - more room for new stuff. LOL Your card is beautiful! I love how you have made the bottom box larger, and that banner is perfect!! Great job!!
    Hugs, Sarah T

  3. I really like this card! I have a tendency to always stick exactly to the sketch, so it was so refreshing to see your circle instead of a square :) Love that deer, too - isn't it just so beautifully festive? Thank you!

  4. Love that deer! You did a wonderful job! TFS, Carole

  5. Thanks!! I have Dasher as well! He's an all time favorite!! This center part was actually part of the kit! It was a big 'ol sticker!

  6. Everything I own is old and I'm retired! this is a lovely card that is timeless.

  7. I love the whimsical reindeer and the holiday paper! so pretty :)

  8. Love this card! Very pretty!

  9. Lovely. This is a card anyone would be happy to receive.

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…
