A little old and new from TSOT

Good morning everyone! 

I have a fun challenge to share as part of the Try Stampin' On Tuesday design team! 

This one was an easy one for my brain! Don't you just love those? The optional challenge for this was to use 'old and new'. I think I used more old than new, honestly haha!

I took it waaaaaaaay back with this Real Red polka dot paper, from a christmas Simply Scrappin' kit from,  if I had to guess, 2008/09? So old, check! 

I haven't invested in the new Hexagon Textured impressions folder, so I used my old Honeycomb folder. I still love the impression that this one makes. I also used the retired "Best of Shelli" 25 year celebration stamp set. I keep this set around because the textures are pretty great. I love Shelli's stamping style and go back to her blog every now and again just to see what she's been up to.

So what's new? I'm pretty sure the only new thing on this card is the Stitched Framelets dies and burlap ribbon! (and the paper, obviously- but that could be iffy as well since I have a hoard of scraps) Also, not pictured, I used the sentiment from Watercolor Wishes kit 'You're amazing' for the inside with the little hearts. I also traced the heart with the fine tip glue pen to accent it a little more.

Thanks for stopping in today! I hope you have a stamptasic day!!

If you aren't following me on social media, your'e missing a good time! (haha!) But, here's my shameless plug to checkout my facebook page! I post there more in real time, so check it out!

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…
