Endless Birthday Wishes

Good morning!

After a whirlwind weekend of being trapped inside a sports arena for the Alaska State Wrestling tournament, I'm happily back home and stamping!

I brought some paper pumpkin kits to work on, but never got around to stamping between checking brackets and the trackwrestling site for matches, and keeping my 5-year old entertained while big brother wrestled. Phew, my eyes were tired! My son did great and I'm betting he's happy that the season(s) are finally over.

I also received my SU package over the weekend while gone and was happy that my Endless Birthday Wishes set arrived! This set has been in the catalog for a few years now and I've always had it on my "wish list" but never ordered. (You know how that is!) But when I saw it on the retiring list, my heart sank and I finally ordered it.

I cased a card from the lovely Diana Gibbs, but will show you that one soon as it's for my mother-in-law's birthday!

But- here's a masculine version to hold you over!

I'm trying a new thing with my pictures, what do you think? I have a simple photo editing app on my phone, so its not as fancy as some, but it'll work. Maybe. Haha. 

Anyway! I'll be submitting this one to the Watercooler Wednesday Blog with the coolest ladies around. (har har.) They are having a "anything goes" masculine challenge this week! 

Alright, well this card making party needs to get her move on--housing inspector coming today so we can sell the place. (insert river of tears here) So it's back to the grind. 

Have you sold a home? My family is literally dying at keeping the place in inspection order. 

I'll see you soon! Have a stamptastic day!!

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…
