We Create Blog Hop--Tag, You're It!

This will be short and sweet, I've got to get some sleep tonight--tomorrow is Occasions catalog preorder and demonstrators will be calling all day to get their goodies from the new catalog! The call center will be hopping!

I was able to be a part of a couple of swaps, one at Stampin' Up! home office and one at OnStage--both were tag swaps. Using the Tons of Tags Framelits I made the birthday tag first for the home office swap and then decided to do a similar one for the OnStage swap. I did a simple winter/Christmas tag for fun, I may make a few of these for neighbor gifts.

I can't wait to see what my friends have come up with.  Go check them out.

Here's wishing you a very Merry Christmas and an amazing & prosperous new year!

We Create Blog Hop--Plaid!

The holidays are upon us again. I love seeing the change of the seasons (although, I don't really like the snow).  I love sweaters, scarves, boots and sitting by a fire.  Soon, the smell of fall will turn to the frost of winter...Christmas is just around the corner!  This is an amazing time of year where families gather and people are a little more kind. With the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, I love to take a few minutes and create something fun.

This card was made with the Cable Knit Dynamic Impressions folder and the Christmas Around the World DSP. I added some black shimmer ribbon with mini sequins for some bling and then our new Green Sprigs for some fun! The Watercolor Christmas stamp set is one of my favorite Christmas sets in the Holiday Catalog. Simple images, beautiful script and you can add a cool project kit that is designed for this set.

Today, the new Stampin' Blends are available!  These markers blend beautifully and if you love coloring, these are for you!

Enjoy the rest of the hop--these ladies have great projects to share.

I hope you have a wonderful holiday season and that you can spend as much time as possible with those you love.

We Create Blog Hop--Labels to Love

Sorry, my schedule has changed so much recently, that I have had to rethink they way I do so much of  my down time.  I remember thinking when my children were younger, "maybe when the kids are grown and gone, I'll have more time to things I love to do!"  What a laugh!!  Sometimes I feel more busy now than when they were little--can you imagine?

Anyway, even though I work at Stamping' Up! my time to stamp is very sporadic. Having the option to use any set I want can be even overwhelming at times, so I have to make a plan...which is still in progress. ;)

I have used the Labels to Love stamp set this time.  The stamps are very basic and you can see that there's not much to do to make one of these labels.  I decided to make a few stepped up labels so you can see that there's more to this set.

I also used the Everyday Label punch, but some of the stamps could be used with circle or oval Framelits or other punches.   Adding texture such as ribbon or embossing powder, can always add something special to any card, and tags and labels are just a smaller version of a card.  They can be added to a card front as well as on a package or bag.  I am loving all the options I find in the Holiday catalog for so many occassions, not just the typical fall/winter holidays.  I hope you can find something in the Holiday catalog that can help you share your passion for paper crafting and also create something with your own hands. That is one thing that I feel strongly about, and I want to create more and more the older I get.

Check out our great team of bloggers!  They love to create with their hands, you can tell by their fun projects.

I hope your holiday season is joyous and full of family and friends, but most importanly, love!

We Create Blog Hop-Lovely Inside & Out

I did a couple simple cards today. I used the Lovely Inside & Out bundle (it was the set I had to have when the annual catalog came out!) I love how versatile this bundle is and the fun inside out thinlits can be layered or even cut out.
I used Fresh Fig and Island Indigo for my color combo and both cards are using Crumb Cake, but the inside of the second card I added a piece of Wood Textures DSP to peek through the front cutout.
I've been given an amazing opportunity to work for Stampin' Up! I love this company and I really enjoy working there!  So, I hope all of you demonstrators will be extra patient if you call DS and get me on the phone--I'm still learning, be kind! ;)

Check out our bloggers--they all have wonderful projects to share!

We Create Blog Hop--You're Sweet!

Welcome to July! Time for outdoor activities like boating, camping, hiking and grilling. Some of my favorite foods to eat in the summer is watermelon, homemade ice cream, fruit smoothies and a fresh lavender lemonade (yum!)  Cool Treats stamp set is perfect for this time of year. It can be used for several different occasions and adding the Framelits will make cutting out all the little pieces easy peasy and can even be used without the stamps as well.

I used a color combo from the front of the new Stampin' Up! catalog: Soft Sky, Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst. I used the Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper for the bowl and Berry Burst 1/2 in Finely Woven Ribbon. This ribbon comes is all five of the new 2017-2019 In Colors and is amazing to work with.

Ok, I'll let you get back to your fun in the sun time, but remember to stop by my blogging friends and see their projects!

I'd love to hear what is your favorite thing to eat in the summertime? Share your favs in the comments below.  Enjoy your summer!
