~ At Home With You ~

Happy Friday to my fellow paper enthusiasts!

Earlier this week, I received a box of awesome goodies, my Stampin' Up! pre-order and could not wait to use this oh so cute stamp set to make a card with a French blue door!

Those of you that know me, I love French Country...it speaks to my soul. Little by little, I am bringing this style into my home. Maybe I will get to paint my front door a French blue color...that would make me so happy!

Anyway, for those of you whom are not demonstrators, this beautiful stamp set entitled At Home with You will be for sale beginning June 2nd from our NEW Stampin' Up! 2017-2018 Annual Catalog. So get your Wish List out and add this one to it.

Stamps: At Home with You
Ink: Marina Mist, Crumb Cake, Memento Black, several markers to color in the wreath and flower pots...that was so relaxing.
Paper: Whisper White, Shimmery White (excellent for watercoloring), NEW Wood Textures DSP
Misc: Brick Wall embossing folder, linen thread, dimensionals, paper snips

Stay tuned for another adventure sure to come your way...can not say for sure when, but with all of my new toys...I have to play with them!

Happy Mother's Day!

~ Fleur de Jour ~

Today I bring you a project that I have been working on with a few of my crafty paper pals these past few weeks.

This is from SVG Cuts and my dear friend Liz initiated this and she did all of the cutting and prep work beforehand. The willing paper participants, including moi, eagerly watched a tutorial together to make this beautiful piece come to life!

As many of you already know, I just LOVE flowers!!! And being that we live in the desert, do not get me wrong, I know there are beautiful desert flowers here too, but, being from back East, there is nothing that can compare to the flowers grown there from Springtime throughout the Summer months.

So, to satisfy that need, I happily make flowers out of paper!

And, there you have it for today!

Happy Stamping!

Pocketful of Posies!

Happy May Day! 

That probably has multiple meanings but the symbolism I ascribe to this, the first day of the Lovely Month of May, is from when I was a wee lass...way back to second grade when I attended Catholic school and danced around the Maypole and wore a pretty dress that my beloved mom created for me! And with a crown of flowers set upon my head!

So...to celebrate, I enjoy making things with flowers of all kinds, centerpieces, wreaths, shadow boxes and most of all...cards!

Enjoy!

~ Happy Easter ~

Easter gifts for my pretty little twin granddaughters Keira and Kaely. I enjoy putting together these little bags filled with goodies for my sweethearts!

The March Paper Pumpkin stamp set was used to make the bunny cards along with their favorite colors Perfect Plum, Wisteria Wonder and Pink Pirouette with Melon Mambo.

Hope that everyone has a lovely and Blessed Easter today!

Happy Stampin'!

~ Happy Birthday Artie! ~

The past year has just breezed by...it seems like yesterday that I made a birthday card for my son Artie! 

Well...I was in the mood for using some Pacific Point card stock and glad to have created this one of a kind card for a one of a kind son.

Hope you like it and perhaps are somewhat inspired to take out some card stock, punches, stamps and get a card to someone today!

Happy Stampin'!

~ Pop of Pink Cake ~

This is a birthday card for a lovely niece of mine that lives back east. She is becoming a teenager. Such a sweet, beautiful, intelligent, young lady. Her mom and dad are the best parents ever, well, my mom and dad were really the very best parents, honestly!

Not much else going on except that I have been straightening out my craft studio and getting into the Spring and Easter mode with decorating around the house.

My two little buddy doggies Bebe and Chelsea had their spring spa day where they both were groomed and ready for the warmer weather that is to come in the next few weeks here.

Oops! My cup of tea is empty, so I need to go and get a refill!

Til next time!

Happy Stampin' !

~ Spring is Here ~

This absolutely beautiful, gorgeous Spring sampler was made in a class hosted by Lorri Heilling and Gina Shappa.  Gina designed this amazing creation!

There are few words other than what I began with to describe how incredibly happy I am to have attended this event and bring home such a masterpiece! It lights up too! The little basket in the lower right corner has battery powered lights that are pink!

All of the elements are Stampin' Up! and can be found either in the 2016-2017 Annual Catalog and the Occasions Catalog and various items from the Sale-A-Bration catalog event.

The attention to detail is just incredible! 

Hope that you are engrossed in your own stamping adventures and bringing to life your very own marvelous creations! I would love to see what you are up to!

Happy Stamping!

Valentines for my Sweethearts

Hi Stamping Buddies!

Thought that I would share another of my Valentine adventures with you today!

These were my Valentines that I gave to my twin granddaughters Keira and Kaely...the gift bags filled with little goodies for them.

Last month I learned how to make pop out cards from one of my very talented side lines Jeannette Weeks. We had so much fun learning how to make these at our team meeting, so I decided to share them with my little sweethearts!

Well...there you have it!

My dear hubby and I have a busy weekend/week ahead with lots of fun activities planned for both our 12th Wedding Anniversary which is tomorrow, Sunday February 12th and Valentine's Day this coming Tuesday.

Here's hoping that you all enjoy the weekend and week ahead with your own crafty adventures!

Happy Hugs!
