Eastern Palace Suite!

Hi friends!

Do you ever fall in love with a product and then have a really hard time using it?

That is me with the new Eastern Palace suite that I was able to pre-order as a demonstrator. (Don't worry, you'll be able to get your hot little hands on them soon!) This set is SO beautiful and has so many intricate details that can be added its mind-blowing!

After some trial and error, and a little CASING (Copy and selectively edit, copy and share, you get the idea) I made this little beauty! This is cased from StampinBJ. (check it out, I'll wait!)

Aren't these colors GORGEOUS?! They are 3 of the 5 new In-Colors; Fresh Fig, Lemon Lime Twist, and Emerald Envy. Ahhh......

I also used "contriband" (LOL, I love that term for non-SU items) Delicata Gold Ink because I discovered them on Jennifer McGuire Ink's page and had to add them to my arsenal. And because GOLD. This set has 2 pages with foiled gold details and they are so pretty! 

A few metallic gold enamel shapes and gold thread and this baby is done. The lace details in the background are from the Sale-a-bration set Delicate Details and I just can't stop using this stamp set.  It was a late purchase of mine because I'm not a lacy-frilly kind of gal, but after I saw it used as a background on Pinterest, it was game on! 

Lets talk retirement! Y'all. Stuff is FLYING off the shelves. If there is something that is retiring and you want it-- GO GET IT. Ask for forgivness later. If you missed something, don't fret! The new catalog is going to knock your socks off,  and I'm willing to bet there is something there you'll love even more. Promise. :)

Can't wait until June 1 to order? Join my team! We're a small and mighty bunch and I love helping people get started and find a new hobby! 

As always, be sure to check me out on Facebook, I post a lot more "real time" on there. I thought for a while about ditching the blog, but not everyone is on Facebook, so I'll stay here a while as well. It just might be a little slower. 

Hope you had a relaxing Easter weekend 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…
