Wacky Watercooler Blog Hop Part Deux!

Hey there! Didn't you just love Marsha's projects!! She's so talented.

Any who, it's been cooooooold here lately! We hit -50F (you read that correctly) in North Pole, Alaska yesterday and I'm glad I didn't have to venture farther than the end of the road for the bus stop! Today it's hovering around -40, so its warming back up. LOL!

For the hop! We were to make 2 projects for this to showcase the new Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-bration! I just loooooooovvvveeee the new catalogs. Actually, the whole year of Stampin' Up! catalogs have been probably the best BY FAR. Seriously. Love em. And hopefully will too after this hop! ;)

For my first project, I CASED (copy and selectively edit, share everything, you get the picture) the annual catalog! I used the Balloon adventures set and made this fun and very simple balloon card. Its simple because the stamps are photopolymer, so they are completely see through. That makes it easy to line them up without using a …

Let's Celebrater!

Good morning!

It's been a busy week ever here, wrestling tournaments, meetings, snow, oh my! Now, a deep freeze--apparently colder than -40F (which is the same as -40C if you didn't know) is coming starting tomorrow night. Brr...

Glad to finally relax a little this week. Until it gets all booked up! haha.

Today at Try Stampin' On Tuesday we have a great challenge for you to play along with! By great I mean it'll make you want to bust out 4 or more cards using the sketch! Neat-o right?

Here's the sketch!

Here's my take(s!):
Take 1: Celebrater

If you look closely, you'll see what I mean about 'celebrater' haha. I thought I would stamp off the image, but forgot this embossing folder debosses, and well not it looks like I added an 'r' on the end. I think it's funny, so it's staying! Isn't this embossing folder amazing? 

Take 2: Because scraps! I already had the half sheet of Peekaboo Peach, so why not make another card? Flipped the p…

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…
