  • Just Saying Hello with the Howl-o-ween Owl

    When I splurged on this Howl-o-ween stamp set, I did it because I was just loving this super cutie pie owl.  Something about him made me smile and so I had to splurge and get the set.  Since then, I’ve done some Halloween themed projects, but when I was getting ready for a card class […]

  • Stampin’ Up! Leadership 2015- Day 1 Recap

    Stampin’ Up! Leadership 2015- Day 1 Recap

    So, after going to bed Wednesday night/Thursday morning at 3:30am and then getting up at 7:30, I told myself I was going to go to bed by midnight tonight.  (I couldn’t really go to bed earlier than that because I had an event that didn’t get me home until 11pm)…. so, it is now 12:45am […]

  • Finally Finished August’s Paper Pumpkin Kit!

    I know, I know… we are already in September and I”ve had my Paper Pumpkin kit for a few weeks; but I finally had some time to sit down with my August kit and start playing. I try each month to make one example following the pre-designed sample and then make the rest using only […]

  • Pair Up Those Punches!

    When they announced the Color Refresh and told us that 10 colors were going to be retiring, I looked at the list and was a little sad but overall thought that I didn’t use the colors that much and so I wasn’t going to miss them too much. Well, then I decide to pull out […]

  • Some Ideas For Your My Paper Pumpkin Welcome Kit

    This last week, I have been performing my civic duty by heading to the district courthouse each morning to report for jury duty.  Most people are not excited by being called for jury duty, but with two overly energetic toddlers in the house and a mom who offered to come help watch the kids, I […]

  • Convention 2012 Display Boards!

    One of the big reasons to go to convention is to see all the tons of amazing samples and displays.  They have huge boards that are organized by common colors (so you get a rainbow effect as you walk along the boards), by artisan award finalists, and boards full of samples using the stamp sets […]

  • It’s All in The Details

    Well, my adventures in California are coming to a close and I’m about to get back on the road to head back to Washington.  Its been a great chance to visit with friends, family, and my Stampin’ pals.  Thankfully, my nephew’s surgery went great and he seems to be recovering well (enough so that he […]

  • Fancy Florets Embossed Card

    Today I thought I’d share a card I got to make at an event this summer hosted by my way-upline, Julie Gunhus.  She is one of those demonstrators who have been around for over 10 years and now has a huge downline.  She is so sweet to put on big group get togethers a couple […]

  • Simple Is Beautiful Too

    When looking at card samples online and at events like the Stampin’ Up! convention, its easy to be drawn in to the “WOW!” cards.  You know, the ones that surely took someone multiple hours to make and look like they should be hung on a wall as art and you could never bear to throw […]

  • SU Convention Day 2: Display Boards and More!

    Sorry I got a little behind with my blogging but  I was planning on posting last night but ended up spending a couple hours trying to figure out how I was going to stuff all my goodies in my bags!  It was a full packed day and I loved every minute of it! We spent […]
