Love and Support

Such a great way to say thank you – and boy do I need to send a bunch of thanks to many people for their constant love and support over the last few weeks.  Our family is going through a season.  This is a story for another time, but I’ve been humbled by the love and support.


I love have just a few little Basic Pearls and touch of Bakers Twine just added a touch of class.  Who would have thought that Powder Pink and Old Olive would be the perfect match?

Missing You

So much texture – so much love – just the perfect reminder that I’m  missing you!   Home to Roost was not on the top of my list of SAB sets to get.  I didn’t feel the rooster – but the sentiments – oh my goodness.

I just love the Smoky Slate and Blackberry Bliss together.  Oh, and we can’t forget the Pearlized Doily, Basic Rhinestones, Gingham Gala Sequins, Whisper White Bakers Twine, and Layered Leaves Embossing Folder  It just makes the card stand out.  As simple as it is – just stands out with all the extra detail.

Celebrate Your Day!

Oh goodness – who doesn’t love a good cupcake?  Well, Hello Cupcake is just the perfect set to add to your collection.  Guess, what if you grab this set now you’ll be able to sang a coordinating product soon!

It’s so fun to make cards that are gender neutral.  I’ve got a stack of cards, that if one of my kiddos need one they can easily just grab and go.  No needs to find a boy card or a girl card.  Just grab the card and go with it.

Our Thoughts are With You

Lasting Lily is going to be a hit, and I don’t think it will be around much long!  So don’t delay in getting this stamp set.   This set is a level two set which means it is FREE with a $100 purchase. I hear something really great is going to be coming out soon to coordinate with this stamp set.

The one thing that was pretty amazing to me about Lasting Lily is that the sentiments are amazing.  There are several sympathy sayings.  Using them with this beautiful image makes the card so much warmer.

Here’s to Those who Inspire Us!

I’m blessed to work with some great people in the youth groups that I am involved with.  What I have learned over the years is that I don’t give much to these young women who I work with.  These young women give me far more than they will ever know.  They inspire me every day to be a better version of myself.


This really is such a simple card that can be easily reproduced to have several on hand.  I love all the spring colors in this card.  The Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper and Part of My Story stamp set is only available through March 31st.  So don’t wait and get them now – Sale-A-Bration items are available while supplies last!

Happy Sale-A-Bration

It’s the most wonderful time of year – so glad you could not hear me sing those words!  I’m an awful singer.   Today starts Sale-A-Bration.  That means for every $50 you earn specialty FREE product.  There is two levels of product to choose from – level 1 or level 2.  This is where I usually stock up on all my essential items.

Today’s card is a little out of my comfort zone.  This is a stamp set that I didn’t like at first – really just not my style.  However, after seeing some amazing cards from my fellow demonstrators it’s hard not to like.

Tin Tile Congratulations

Okay – I am in love with this card.  We made this at my monthly card class and everyone just loved it too.  I love the Tin Tile look mixed with the subtle shimmer of the Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I can’t forget the Tranquil Tide and Blackberry Bliss color combination – its such an elegant look.


One of the fun things of this card is the different card elements – the die cut leaves and flowers, the sentiment label, the velvet ribbon, to the epoxy shapes.  It all just comes together in an amazing fashion.  The other great thing about this card is that you are literally using the small scrapes of DSP that you have laying around.  This card is a great example of being able to use this layout with multiple different embossing folders, DSP and colors.

Hello Baby

I was recently asked to make some baby shower cards for a little boy using an elephant.  I can’t remember how long it has been since I last made a baby card.  I loved using Balmy Blue for the base and Gray Granite together.  You would have never guess how long it took me to figure out which gray was the perfect gray for our baby elephant.

Baby 1

As I created a had a stack of little behinds on my desk and I couldn’t bring my self to just throw them away.  You see the baby elephant is part of a tag 🙂  How great is that!

So after I had made all my cards and looking at all the little behinds I knew I just couldn’t throw them away and had to use them!  So – here we go – the behind of the card!

Congratulations First Frost

Sometimes we need a little card to say congratulations to a friend.  I’ve used First Frost again to make this clean and simple congratulations card.  I’ve really come to appreciate the simplicity and how easy it is to make a card using our quality notecards and today isn’t any different.

I’ve used the Foil Edged Cards and Envelopes in gold which is not one of my go to colors.  But it’s just the perfect amount of gold on this card – especially with the shimmer on the specialty designer series paper.

IMG_20180923_162004One of the fun accents of this card is the textile elements to it.  Just behind the flagged banner is a piece of Tranquil Tide Velvet Ribbon.  What is fun about using the ribbon is it adds a subtle touch of a little something – if you know what I mean.
