Lovely Day

Hello friends.

If you are a regular reader of my blog, you already know I'm a fan of the monthly project kit in a box from Stampin' Up!, Paper Pumplin.  February's  Paper Pumpkin kit is called "Lovely Day".  Not only does it contain all the supplies to make 9 full sized cards with coordinating envelopes; the stamp set in the kit also coordinates with the Sale-a-bration stamp set, Happy Birthday to You!  Bonus!


The highlighted script on each card is rose gold foil on dimensionals so they really pop!  And the pink sequins add just the right touch!

Or, you can make the project at my in home studio in Elizabeth (by Lock 3).  All materials (except frame) are provided.  The available dates are:


Tuesday, March 2  7:00 PM

Do the Impossible

Hello stampers,

Are you an active person?  I like to walk - and I like to swim - and I like to bike, but moderately.  Not like an athlete, but just to keep moving.  However, I'm inspired by those that are active.  

The stamp set, Do the Impossible is perfect for encouraging and cheering on the active people in your life.  



I made this card to celebrate some of the active people in my life.

Bonanza Buddies

Hello stampers,

The Birthday Bonanza product suite is great for crafting birthday cards for those of all ages.  Today we'll take a look at a card more suited for a younger recipient.


I used the dies in the bundle to cut out the fun little animals from the Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper Pack.  The banners are from the reverse side of a couple of papers.  What a fun card!

Honey Bee

Hello crafty people,

From time to time I read comments about Stampin' Up! as a company.  And inevitably, people comment overwhelmingly about how well Stampin' Up! products coordinate.  Today's card is a great example of that.  This card uses items from the Jan-June 2020 Mini Catalog, Sale-a-bration, the annual catalog, and the Christmastime Is Here product suite (still available).  Take a look!

Magnolia Birthday

Hello stampers,

I have one more card for you using products from the Stampin' Up! 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  The magnolia products are beautiful.  If you haven't added these products to your collection, they are worth another look.




The sentiment and flower on this card are from the Magnolia Blooms stamp set.  This stamp set is found in the 2019-2020 Beginner Brochure.  I stamped the flower in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored the image with Stampin' Blends.  I cut out the image with my Paper Snips and attached it to the card with Dimensionals. 

The Petal Pink card stock background is embossed with the beautiful Tufted 3D Embossing Folder.  The sentiment was stamped on a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock and cut out with the Story Label punch.
