Birthday Butterflies!

Do you ever buy a stamp set with an idea in mind and then forget later on what that idea was? This happens to me all the time.  I'll see an idea then get the stamp only to put away the stamp and then that's it.

That is why I love the internet. Especially those that are like one-stop shopping. Split Coast Stampers and now Pinterest are making it ever so easy to search a particular stamp and give a ton of ideas!

This card I found on Pinterest, but here is the link to the original blog that the card was posted on. I'm all about giving credit where it is due, so I'm hating that I say, 'Oh, found this on Pinterest.' Ugh. I'm going to change that mindset. It is a great site though. 

Here is my version. I, for some odd reason and a few years overdue, have really taken to the 2010-2011(I think?)  In Colors. Partly because I have a 6x6 stack and a few remaining solid sheets hanging around. I've made a goal to work through those stacks and make a bunch of cards with them (instead of being on an episode of Hoarders). When I find the time of course!

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…
